elitair, elegant, arrogant, sinds 14 mei 1977


I got fifa 09 now, which sees the Fifa series, after becoming acceptable again last year, making lots of progress. The new Team Be a pro mode, where you can be one player and your friends the others in a 10 v 10 match is excellent. I play in BeEx United

This goal is my most important, as it
A) won me and Roma the coppa italia
B) got me the achievement for heading
C) got me the achievement for wing play
D) and as a bonus got me the achievement for uploading a video.

Pokervirus slaat toe in Utrecht

(Bron: Snip, het SN intranet)


In de Utrechtse kantine van SenterNovem vlogen de speelkaarten en fiches donderdagmiddag over de tafels. Veertien pokeraars streden twee uur lang om de prijzen en de SenterNovem-eer.

Organisator van deze Sentropez-activiteit was adviseur Rick Lindeman "Ik heb dit toernooitje samen met Robby Taytelbaum georganiseerd. Voor een eerste keer is de opkomst beter dan verwacht. Ik vind het leuk dat het een gemêleerd gezelschap was met SenterNovemmers uit alle geledingen, onder wie ook drie vrouwen."

Via een willekeurige indeling werden na een instructie de beginners en gevorderde spelers over twee tafels verdeeld. Na een uur spelen namen de beste pokeraars plaats aan de finaletafel. Aan de finaletafel won Paul Schmitz. Hij koos uit de twee beschikbare prijzen de pokerset, zodat Jolanda Lops, de winnaar aan de andere tafel, de fles whisky won.
Rick:"We hebben enthousiaste reacties ontvangen van zowel deelnemers als mensen die nu niet mee konden doen. We kijken daarom hoe deze pokeractiviteit in de toekomst een vervolg kan krijgen."

Wii Music

I felt a bit like Maris Janssons yesterday.
He is the Latvian conductor of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra in Amsterdam.
Gramaphone declared it the best Orchestra in the world this week.

So this was a good thing.
I was waving my Wiimote.
And the orchestra played Carmen, the great Opera by Georges Bizet
My wife Celine played the Violin. Osama some horn and Zardoz did a bit of percussion.
I got 68 points, and was very happy.

Classical music sounds quite good in the Midi Nintendo chose.
Pop songs less.
But Midi makes the game flexible, allowing for all those instruments.

I say game, but i'm not sure of it.
It has three mini games: the aforementioned Orchestra, a standard rhytm game with cowbells, albeit with few songs and a Wiiplay-like quiz, making you choose Mii's with the right pitch, or putting them in the right order, which makes good fun.

But the main thing is just jamming.
While real artists frown upon Guitar Hero,
You have far more control there over a single instrument than in Wii Music.

The variety here, makes it fun though, and also the arrangements to make different songs of the same basics,
And playing all the different parts in a row.
One person on the flute, and one on the drums is excellent fun.
In a very different way than Rockband.
The drums by themselves are special too, as you use the Wii Fit boards as foot pedals.

Other good things: The first Wii game i have seem without a seperate friends list
Which i noticed when one of the world famous Pickford Bros appeared in my list.
Still, you can only send them videos.
Mii integration is as allways wonderful, Having a band full of people you know makes it a bit more fun

Bad things: You're not that much in control, I would love more Guitar Hero like stuff.
The music sounds rather bad, and the selection is very limited.
Surely Nintendo, with all that DS money, you could have licensed some songs.

A conclusion is hard to draw, and probably depending on your expectations.
If you're expecting Guitar Hero with Mii's you are going to be dissapointed.
If you're want to have some fun with friends making a song together, and actually learning a few things about music too, you're going to like it.
If you always wanted to direct a big orchestra like me, you're going to like it for some swallow fun.

Ouendan remains the best rhytm game in history, and Guitar Hero/Rockband do the rockstar thing miles better, but I've got a few nights of fun of it, and felt more that i was doing something with music than i did with the aforementioned games. I am happy that i overcame my doubts and spent 30 pounds on it. It's does what it sets do do rather well, and if you can appreciate that subniche of music games, i can recommend it. Some of you are going to hate it though.

Eigenlijk was je er altijd
Sinds ik ergens halverwege de jaren 80
Ajax begon te volgen.

Even een opbeurend commentaar op AT5
Opeen sprintje in het veld als er iets aan de hand was.

En dus was het gedrag van de PSV-fans schandalig.
Een minuut stilte voor jou was gepast.

Gelukkig vernederden we ze
En werd het een mooie voetbaldag

Mijn ouderlijk huis.
