Today I joined Emperor Ming and his daugher Princess Maria-Theresa to the movies.

What is fitting for 'Good Friday' (as the Americans call the day before Eastern - hey, someone MUST have had a good time there after all!!! NOT!?)?

Well, you already guessed it: Mel Gibson's attempt of depicting 'The Passion of The Christ'.

One of the interesting parts (for me), was the way the movie starts with a zoom into the Garden of Gethsemane from outer space & above the clouds...

... needless to say that Gethesmane is a 'Nemus', a Sacred Grove.

Not that it would make everyone there to Nemurians, just interesting to observe...

Other than that, a sign of good cinematography that I sat through 2 hours without getting so bored to go out for a smoke or to abandon the theater altogether.

Since it's nearly a little review already, I might as well say the rest: the only cool dude was the Satan guy (who was really a woman in the movie, nobody complained yet??). The Emperor even tried to convince me for a while that it was God and not Satan. Hmmm...

All the rest of the people, includig the Jesus (as depicted, of course, not the original) would need some serious attitude adjustments, not far away from insanity...

The spirituality level of this movie equals ZERO.

No idea why so many people complain (except the ones cashing in a billion hehe)

Well, well, well...

coming back to Gethsemane, that turned out to be the (last) Sacred Grove of Jesus: it was definitely NOT OK that Jesus stepped on that snake and if it would have happened in one of my Sacred Groves, I would have made him pay in cash for replacement and penalties.

Did anyone ever check if that snake belonged to a near-extinct species?? Those guys are getting upset about every screwing/breeding frog around (like preventing the freeway from Kassel to Leipzig for 5 years now). BUT, where are they now???

Hmmm, life is not fair... but who said it would be??

PS: stay tuned for reports on more Sacred Groves around..

"On Sunday, Cleveland beat the Atlanta Hawks 100-99 and advanced to the conference finals. Now that it has swept two playoff series, it's worth reevaluating this team. Are the Cavs that we've seen in the past three weeks that much different from the ones that went through so much drama in the previous 82 games? Are they significantly better than they were this time last year?

The big change is obvious: Cleveland is taking and making more 3-pointers than anyone else in the postseason, which has made its offense almost unstoppable. Channing Frye was acquired at the trade deadline in order to help the Cavaliers space the floor, and when he's on the court with Love, there isn't a better-shooting big man duo in the league.

In Game 2 against Atlanta, Cleveland shot 25-for-45 from 3-point range, setting an NBA record for 3s made in a game, regular season or playoffs. In the other three games, the Cavs shot 52-for-107 (48.6 percent).

“They shot the piss out of the ball,” Hawks forward Paul Millsap said.

Theoretically, it's not that difficult to figure out how to build an offense around James: simply surround him with as many shooters as possible. For the Cavs, though, the game has never looked as easy as it has in these playoffs. Unlike last year, James isn't grinding out ugly possessions, going one-on-one and playing almost every minute. Unlike the regular season, there haven't been any letdowns."
"To be clear: the Hawks are not a bunch of schlubs, and Cleveland didn't completely embarrass them. Atlanta trailed by just two points with three-and-a-half minutes left in Game 1, led going into the fourth quarter of Game 3 and had an opportunity to win on the final possession of Game 4. The Hawks often looked helpless defensively, though, and that is rare. They were second in the NBA in defensive rating in the regular season.

“I just think we hit our stride at the right time,” Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue said. “I think the last three or four weeks of the season we really started playing really good basketball on both ends and it's carried over. I think the guys are trusting the offense, they're trusting the defense, and when you're able to lock into a team for a seven-game series, it's easier. It's easier on you. You can kind of pick up their tendencies, what they like to do, what they're going to do after timeouts, how they're going to play you defensively.”

In the close-out game, Love scored a game-high 27 points, going 8-for-15 from 3-point range and pulling down 13 rebounds. That's the sort of stat line that makes him unique, and the Cavs had no one who could do that this time last year. James came close to a triple-double, with 21 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists. Kyrie Irving's eight assists were more important than his 21 points. Crucially, the team isn't just coasting by on talent alone -- the three of them made each other better.

“I know these guys have been waiting on the opportunity to be in the postseason again after what happened last year with their injuries,” James said. “They've been building up towards this both mentally and physically. Obviously I can't say that I haven't waited for ‘em as well -- to get them back to this moment so I can be out there with them."
