Ilker with the World Cup Trophy

Ilker with the World Cup Trophy

As we were leaving the event in honour of Fachetti, an Italian police officer ran after us with the trophy. He insisted that we need to have pictures with it. We were so surprised. 

Following this Turkey draw 1-1 against World Cup winners in Bergamo.

Terminator Salvation

I have never been a fan of Terminator series. I liked the movies but something was bugging me all the time. Arnold probably:). 

I saw the last movie yesterday evening before release. It was 2 hours spent well. I enjoyed it.

Christian Bale is one of my favourite actors but i think Sam Worthington(Marcus Wright) is exceptional. So is Anton Yelchin with the role of Kyle Reese. He deserves a post in this blog as i see massive potential in that kid. He also has a great personal background. 

I also need to write a 10 Great Things Article on that movie. 

All in all it is not a waste of money. Although it has some mistakes the effects are superb and so is the story. For an enthsiast like me it was a great night of cinema.

The Sims 3: A must buy

leave a comment »

sims3-2

I have had the chance to play Sims 3 in the last few days for around 3 hours. It is great fun. It is much better than Sims 2 and the bladder issues are also solved in this game. As i told before i quit the previous one due to excessive bladder problems of my characters.

The game is build fantastically and work added a whole new dimension to it. You can select 6 different personality traits in order to create life time achievement goals for your characters.

You can preorder it from Amazon from the link below. For 50 dollars it offers great fun. The game is to be released on 2 June.

Visitors Trailer

leave a comment »

This is the first trailer of upcoming Visitors series on ABC. We have missed it since 1980s. By the way check out http://www.visitorsonearth.com/ for upcoming news. 

It is planned to start in Fall of 2009 and produced by 4400 creator Scott Peters.

We will see whether it will last more than a season some critics claim it won’t but we’ll see. A lot changed since 80s but we still miss Visitors and everybody is quoting it all the time.

Some behind the scenes info from UEFA Cup Final 2009…

leave a comment »

The Cat

As the cat entered the scene i was not really aware of it however i saw it afterwards. She is not the only one in the stadium. There are many cats living in the stadium and one of them got bored of the others. It was a great scene for all the viewers.

The Fight

There was a fight between Fenerbahçe and Galatasaray fans in some point. Where the stewards took away the fighting parties. What would have happened if Galatasaray played the final i really don’t know.

ISDNs

A miracle happened and ISDN’s started to work 20 minutes prior to kick off. Turkish Telecom tried to fix them for 12 hours and miracle happened in the last 20 mins. Amazing stuff.

Media

More than 1000 media were present in the final. A new media tribune was built together with new commentary positions.

VIP Party

Burcu Esmersoy was the presenter of the VIP party and looking good in red. The theme was the Ottoman nights and it was a cool setup with orange lights.

UEFA Cup Final Official Ball

I have one at my expense thanks to my domain counterpart. It is a great piece of memory.

Deal or No Deal

Me and Selim Şakarcan participated in Deal or No Deal show of Turkey for promotion. It helped by some means.

Galatasaray

The picture of Galatasaray in the stadium is taken back to UEFA Headquarters. Nobody got one for themselves.
