A little bit of Ekova with Starlight in Daden

by Gunther Heinrich, 27 May 2009 in iFound

Originally I planned to write a small rant about the current situation of Hollywood with its unlimited flow of movie remakes, reboots and sequels.

Then I stumbled across a piece of music that made me change my plans.

No. My first thought simply was: did they adjust the opening grosses for inflation?
