Melrose Place marathon

If I only get to pick one favourite soap opera, it's definitely "Melrose Place" that originally aired between 1992 and 1999. I first saw it as a kid and I recently started rewatching the whole series on DVD for the fourth time. I never get tired of it. What I love about the show is that it's not afraid to go over the top with crazy storylines and plot twists. Check out my "Melrose Place" DVD collection down below.

All seasons have been released on DVD and you can order them all from Amazon. However, the final two seasons are only available for region one, so you might need a region free player if you live in Europe. But whatever you do, don't miss out on this classic.

Stéphanie - Pop princess of Monaco

I don't care much about royalty but I really like the music of Stéphanie Grimaldi, princess of Monaco. Especially her 1986 euro disco debut album. This is my Stéphanie CD collection: "Besoin", "Stéphanie" and the compilation album "Référence 80". Please check out my fan site about her music.

Rise Of The Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration

I love the "Tomb Raider" games and can't wait to play the latest Lara Croft adventure "Rise Of The Tomb Raider". It will be released for the Playstation 4 on October 11. The game was originally released for Xbox back in November 2015 but this brand new edition features many extras, for example new missions, all previous DLC and a artbook.

Pre-order your copy from Amazon UK or Amazon US.

Hunk of the day: Rami Malek

Hunk of the day is the American actor Rami Malek, born May 12 1981 in Los Angeles. The first role I saw Rami play was Josh in the brilliant horror video game "Until Dawn". But seeing him as the troubled yet lovable hacker Elliot in the TV series "Mr. Robot" made me a fan. I also enjoyed seeing clips of him playing the gay character Kenny on "The War At Home".

Rami is incredibly charming and I really like his unique voice and his gorgeous eyes. He is also very talented and I think it's just a matter of time before we see him win an Academy Award.
