The Facepalm d'Or 2014

Dear friends, I feel the time is here again. Hot on the heels of last year's incredible success I am eager to present a special someone with what is becoming the most prestigious award of the summer:

The FacePalm d'Or

It is, in fact, so prestigious, that the organizers of the World Cup in Brasil decided to pay us a moving tribute. Yes, yes, the World Cup!!! Without further blabbering, here it is:

This is just my way of thanking the people who designed the logo for spreading the utter essence of a facepalm to the world. It's really really difficult to capture the pure character of that moment when the tension of the fingers meets the fine surface of your forehead to create that special release of all the tension created when faced with the ridiculous or the utter stupid most often found in still or moving images. You guys deserve it, for real no doubt about it!!

The Wolverine Butt Spike

Yes, my friends, it is that time again that my blog gets to experience what I have decided to call "The Wolverine Butt Spike". It is that time when there is a sudden increase in number of visitors on my blog, arriving via google after searching Wolverine Butt. So, as my motto in life is "Ask Scullder for Wolverine's Butt and you shall receive it", prepare to behold Wolverine's buttocks as can be seen in this new thing you can see in cinemas called X-Men, Days of Future Past.

But first, a few things about the movie ... Bryan Singer, the guy who created the original X-Men movie is back and he hits HARD, the movie kicks the ass of all X-Men movies that came before, it is really GREAT! Wolverine's Butt travels through time in order to avoid an impending apocalypse where robots try to kill us all and there's some major ass-kicking involved in the process. Get it?? ASS kicking!!

As much as I wondered in awe at Wolverine's Butt, the main surprise of the movie for me came from this guy here:

His name is Quicksilver and he looks ridiculously stupid in all photos you will find with him, so I was naturally expecting him to be a stupid character. There's none of that though as he turned out to be one of the best superhero characters ever captured on screen and takes center stage in one of the best action sequences in any superhero movie ... ever. I really liked this guy and hope to see much more of him in the next X-Men movie coming up called X-Men Apocalypse, because Yes that was announced and is already under way. 

As for the rest of the world, everyone's probably just counting the seconds until the next time Wolverine's Butt shows up

Oh yeah, I almost forgot the reason you came here (no I didn't)

A Public Service

Well, it's hardly a public service , but I feel like although I've lived in Luxembourg for the past 4 years or so I haven't done anything for this place. I mean a real public contribution, something that would make a difference for the local community, something that future generations may look upon and say "where would we be without the Scullder's blog???".

Step no further, for today it starts my friends. And without further blabber I would like to start a pubic debate related to the following statue that all tourists come and see in the wonderful capital of Luxembourg city.

Yes, it clearly marks the salute of a great leader towards his loyal subjects and also we can admire his greatness. Can you see it?


look ... CLOSER... hello there big guy!

Yes, I know the picture is no good, but this is why I am calling out to my fellow citizens, let's all rally and take one clear BIG photo of ... this thing ... we need to debate people, WE NEED TO DEBAAATEEE!!! ...

mmyeah, slow Firday, I know ...

Perfect Sunrise

Close your eyes ...

.... no peeking ...

... no peeking darn it ....

... OK, here we go ...

A new days begins.

A new day for my blog, that is. Since it was covered in darkness in the past 3&1/2 months, get it? .... No? Well, anyway, say hello to a new day, as experienced from a balloon, high above the desert, nearby Dubai.

Even though my eyes have been graced upon by the magnificence of the most perfect sunset in the world universe, I always felt that chance may touch me once again and shine a warm beacon of beautiful sunlight upon my eyes. Of course, nothing beats the most perfect sunset ... except every other sunset in the world. But I can't think of too many things that would come even close to this ...


Dubai desert

1500m up in the air, 7 o'clock, perfect sunrise

Good morning.
