WGL November 2010 meeting
With a bit of a delay, here is the WGL November meeting report.
We started WGL this time with playing “The New Zealand story” in which a Kiwi is the main character, that was very funny and featured some unique ideas. Especially the music was ace!
Here are the scores:
This time we continued the WGL differently, we wanted to also experience the bombastic German culture of Wiesbaden this time and so we attended the “Exground Film Festival” and watched the short-film competition part 2 which consisted of many short film contributations from all over the world, e.g. one from Argentina (or maybe Brazil? - we couldn’t really figure out that tiny bit of information, sorry folks), France, Ireland and of course Germany. Considering this was an international event, all movies were subtitled in English.
It was pretty interesting, e.g. how milk is connected with stopping to smoke or how nasty and unlogical women who are married can be (0ne of Thorn’s faves, probably because it was a bit bloody )
The film maker from France also came on stage and was inquired some bits, unfortunately he couldn’t speak English. He came with a friend who spoke German but the interviewer wasn’t willing to translate into English as it would take too much time. In the end it took way more time to see the French guy trying to speak English
He also interviewed a few other film makers, all in all it was very interesting and a neat change!
After that we went to the Thai express which was very delicious and very fast indeed (it took only about 5 mins per meal).
After that we went back to Thorn’s home and played a bit Wii Resort on the Nintendo Wii:
Table-tennis was very nice and basketball needed a bit of training but did it well after we understood how the controls do work. Fancing was fun, it most likely like we are trying to beat air
Thorn had a bit of a trouble with steering the water ski first but once holding it in the correct angle it all worked fun
Rowing required a bit of timing in which some failed a bit but hey it’s all about the fun, right?
We ended with archery which was the most successful for each of us as the steering really was easy to figure out and you just needed an easy eye
While the others went back home, Frankf, me and Thorn stayed and we played Gaunlet this time with a working tactic even! However we failed to beat the dragon in the end At 6 AM the dragon won and we took some sleep to be with enough energy for an exhausting breakfast the other day
