… This blog was haunted. And I was haunted! I wanted to start a blog for quite some time now. But one way or another I just never found the time. Yes, I’ve been busy, but when I wasn’t I was usually
lazy otherwise occupied. But I was haunted, haunted by this empty blog. This blog has literally been a ghostblog since december 2009. Wow! I didn’t even realize that until I just looked it up! A year, that sounds really scary.
So here’s something else that is a bit scary, but mostly just peculiar. These images are from the movie The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, it dates from 1919. The movie belongs to the German Expressionism movement. It’s esthetics were designed to convey the emotions of the characters. Scenery, light, and shadow were used to enhance the mood of a film. Watching this movie definitely was an experience. Not only because the movie is so beautifully made, but also because it is nothing like the movie experiences nowadays. Peculiar in the best possible way!
