CSS is still alive, and so am I…

Host (2020) – the quarantine found-footage

I’m not writing here a lot, but sometimes I really need to. Usually, it’s CSS-related, but today, ta-da, more horrors. And to be precise – one of the newest Shudder Originals – Host.

Once I first heard about that idea (on Shudder’s Twitter account) I already knew it’s gonna be something worth watching. The concept of a movie filmed during a quarantine, with people talking over Zoom! Yes, please! That’s the modern-era horror I crave.

6 tricks to make your CSS file smaller

…without making it look weird or/and hard to read.

Best games of 2019

Disclaimer: The games won’t have to be released in 2019 to make that list. And obviously, these are my favourite games for 2019. They’re definitely not the best games of 2019 in general.

Congeria – Shudder’s exclusive podcast experience

Since I learned how to use my headphones and I need to kill more than one hour every day when I’m on a bus, I started exploring things. I was listening to Lore on Deezer, but the app doesn’t really want to save the progress if I had to stop somewhere in the middle of a 40-minute-long episode. What else then? Apparently, podcast series on Shudder!

💎 Weekly Gems (1.07 – 7.07)

I honestly have no idea what happened to last week. It was Monday, I remember, and then somehow I ended up preparing everything for next week. You know, that I haven’t even played PUBG or Battlefield? Just Apex Legends. Weird.

💎 Weekly Gems (24.06 – 30.06)

Second week and I’m still doing it, yay me!

I’m reading Cari Mora (newest book by Thomas Harris) but it’s awful. But I’m not ditching books because of my FOMO. (Well, someone printed that, so maybe the ending will be worth the misery.)
