Sea Change, Race 19

"Full fathom five thy father lies,/ Of his bones are coral made:/Those are pearls that were his eyes:/Nothing of him that doth fade,/But doth suffer a sea change" - The Tempest, Shakespeare

Must Have Skin Care Products While Travelling

- Face wash: When excess oil settles on your skin for long, it causes acne. It is advised to wash face every six to eight hours to avoid such skin problems. - Sanitizer: Our hands come in contact with many surfaces that attract bacteria and infections. An anti-bacterial sanitizer will keep hands clean and bacteria-free. - Toner or astringent: Regularly use a toner or astringent to remove impurities from skin.

Character Birthday Challenge ~ Jugo

FAVORITE PERSONALITY TRAIT:Kindness. I really like this side of him. He's always avoiding a fight and never wants to hurt or kill anyone, but that all changes when he loses it. It's an interesting change in personality, but I prefer his kind side.FAVORITE RELATIONSHIP:Sasuke. The way he trusts Sasuke and obeys him no matter what, is amazing. I also like the reason why it acts like this. Luckily Sasuke really is able to keep him in check.FAVORITE FIGHT:He only had some short attacks in fights, but I liked them. The way his transformation works is just amazing.FAVORITE JUTSU:. I've loved it since I first saw it, but when Kishimoto revealed that Orochimaru's Cursed Seal comes from Jugo's unique clan ability, I started liking it even more.FAVORITE OUTFIT:His Akatsuki-like outfit. I like it better than his other outfits.FAVORITE RANDOM THING:The way he's able to talk with animals, is just amazing. It also shows how kind he actually is.-----PERSONAL THOUGHTS:Like I said, I really like his unique clan jutsu and I hope we'll be seeing more of it. And I like his dual personality. In the beginning I thought he wouldn't anything but but trouble, but in the end he's a big help for Sasuke and the others. I can't wait to see what happens next, since his only reason to stay in Taka/Hebi, is to be 'a shield' for Sasuke and to be kept in check by him. Who knows what happens when Sasuke decides he doesn't need him anymore.-----Feel free to share your thoughts!


Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl Demo First Impressions and Reactions

Previously I had expressed my disappointment in the recently released Shin Megami Tensei IV. At the time I compared it unfavorably to Etrian Odyssey IV, another Atlus game that was released this year, and that I consider to be a far superior entry into the dungeon exploration genre of JRPGs. Today I'm going to be talking about the odd child out in the Etrian Odyssey series, the imminently released Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl. This entry is unusual in that, rather than being a true sequel, EO: Untold is a remake of the original Etrian Odyssey, albeit a drastically augmented version of that game (the first Etrian Odyssey was released in 2007). EO: Untold retains the graphical augmentations implemented in the 4th entry (most notably fully rendered 3D models for enemies rather than static sprites) but presents the a similar labyrinth and the original classes from the first Etrian Odyssey game.

For those who are unfamiliar with Etrian Odyssey, the series focuses on building a team of customized adventurers (a team of 5 at a time, though you have space for 30 in your guild) to explore a labyrinth, mapping as you go on the bottom screen of the DS (yes you draw your own maps, this is actually a very important part of the game). Rather than story, the games emphasize exploration, planning, and a steep difficulty curve that savagely punishes a lack of strategy. In addition to the augmented version of the original, EO: Untold also presents an alternate play mode: Story Mode. This version of the game gives the player a pre-determined group of voiced adventurers rather than the all custom cast of the other EO games, and also includes additional story sequences, events, and fully animated cutscenes. This gives people who have already beaten the original even more incentive to consider picking up EO: Untold. I recently had a chance to sit down and play through the lengthy demo, and wanted to report my findings before I delve into the full game (EO: Untold is set to release tomorrow, October 1st, in North America).

Songhui (actress Pang Eun-jin) is a young woman who lives in unit 301 of the Apartment New Hope Bio. One day a man (apparently a police detective, although he's never specifically identified) comes inquiring about her neighbor Yunhui (Hwang Sin-hye) who lives across the hall in 302. It seems that Yunhui has disappeared, and may have last been seen by Songhui. Offered food by Songhui, the man comments that her apartment, with its extensive cooking facilities, is like a restaurant. Yunhui's, on the other hand, is filled with books. (In a scene later in the film, Songhui will tell Yunhui that her place is "like a school library.")

In Case You Missed It: New Episode of DisinfoCast with Guest Brian Wood is Available

Most of you probably already know this, but just in case there were a few of you who missed it go up on Friday, My guest was Brian Wood, the author ofseveral politically charged comic book series including "DMZ", "The Massive", and "Channel Zero". We spent over an hour discussing 9/11, the media, Barack Obama, NDAA, global climate change, and much, much more.Even if you're not a comic book fan, I think that you'll enjoy our talk.

If you've not had the pleasure of reading "DMZ" or any of the rest of Brian's work, then I strongly recommend you give it a chance.




Great love story that captured the hearts of two people standing on the threshold of adulthood touc

Great love story that captured the hearts of two people standing on the threshold of adulthood touched close combat millions of readers around the world, and the filming of Mandy Moore and Shane West in the leading close combat roles went through several awards, and above all recognition from the audience. Speech, of course Autumn love - one of the most famous close combat and apparently also in the achievements of the best books by Nicholas Sparks.

I do not mind the actual content. A moving story of humble girl and a boy from the upper classes is perhaps a little naive and cloying, but in their own way beautiful. Characters Jamie and Landon is an example of love, sacrifice and dedication, not only to another person, but to God. It is also a lesson of faith and humility, full of sadness and hope at the same time. Sparks shows how the transformation with the development of fatal disease occurs in heroes, in an attempt to deliver superior value. But even the best stories are overshadowed when the way they are served reader to give you a headache. And a lot I could fault. Workshop Literary Sparks close combat leaves a lot to be desired, and repeat every now and then returns strongly close combat zszarga y my nerves. How many times in just two hundred pages, you can read if you know what I mean, If you can understand this, If you can imagine it, and do not get me wrong? Treating the reader as ignorant without the ability to think for themselves a bit overshadowed by the emotions that this novel should invoke. Sir Nicholas, so that we are able to understand it! Indeed, instead of intricate metaphors that raise the question what the author had in mind, we can find a simple (not to say - primitive) language, so you get the impression that the book is targeted to preschoolers rather than for adolescents and adults. I'm not kidding, the simplicity of this book beats the eyes and somehow misses the seriousness contained in its history.

I got used to the fact that the book by Nicholas Sparks fall less than their film adaptations. It is in their potential, which are perfectly able to bring out the directors and writers, but the books always close combat something missing. Or just a style that's completely close combat up to me he does not like. After another disappointment in his work, with all the responsibility to say Sparks is not for me. I will say this: if you read a book you absolutely obejrzycie filming. The first time is sure to please (although close combat I have some concerns here, because today perceive close combat it differently than a few good years ago), and the sea spilled tears have guaranteed. If you've seen the movie and do not know the literary original is not waste precious time. So many others, and probably better books waiting for you!

Doctor Who

Blind-boxed figures are tons of fun to collect, but if you're actually trying to track down each figure in a set, it can be a pricy, time-consuming endeavor. That was my lesson after making countless visits to Suncoast as I tried to piece together a complete set of the first wave of Titans' Doctor Who vinyl minifigures. I considered my set done when I had all the basic figures and was missing just two variants, but I ended up with several doubles, and let me tell you -- at $10-$11 a pop, getting doubles stings.

When news of wave 2 hit, I knew I was going to have to try a different approach because I was definitely going to need each and every character related to my beloved 10th Doctor, so I preorderd a case of 20 from BigBadToyStore. What's awesome about getting a case it that you get the official box that converts into a retail display tray (pictured above and below). The artwork is a lot of fun and reflects the actual figures contained within nicely. Once it's all set up, it looks so nice that it almost seems a shame to sully this display by opening them, but that thought lasted only about two seconds as my wife and I celebrated an early Christmas in September and tore into all 20 boxes like rabid maniacs.

Rumblings about Brewster's possible comeback started earlier this month when the actress , seemingly from the set.Plus, cast member A.J. Cook teased to TVLine just last week that in Season 9, "We're going to see a lot of familiar faces," adding a playful gasp.Airing in February 2014 and shedding light onto what happened to JJ during her year away from the BAU (aka Season 6), "Our 200th episode is going to be a special show,"showrunner Erica Messer said in a statement.

Google Web Designer launches in beta, available now as a free download

Back in June, Google's advertising arm put up a blog post, letting us know it was about to release an HTML5 development tool, called Google Web Designer. Well, it's just arrived today, per a post on Google's own G+ account, and it's available in beta as a free download. Throughout, the tool appears to cater to both seasoned coders, as well as amateurs looking to try their hand at web design (or looking to get it done on a budget). For instance, while you could tweak the code by hand, there's also an option to let Google focus on the HTML5 and CSS3 grunt work while you focus on... the easier stuff (whatever that is).

Likewise, you can animate individual elements using layers or, if you don't know what you're doing, you can just animate scene by scene and let Google fill in the blanks. Additionally, you'll find a suite of 3D rendering tools inside, along with illustration features. As for monetizing your site, Google Web Designer naturally integrates with Google's own AdMob and DoubleClick Studio -- no surprise there. At any rate, if you feel like getting your hands dirty with code, you'll want to hit up that second source link below.

'Starry Night Over the Rhone' by Vincent van Gogh, Mus e d'Orsay Paris

I'm certainly rejuvenated after my trip overseas. There were so many inspiring and creative moments. I'm still reflecting on them every day. Paris was such a visual feast of culture, art, beauty, food and architecture. Amsterdam was quirky, fun, contemporary and clever. However, it's been right back into it all since returning. I'm yet to scrapbook the trip (that's a dream at this point) and I'm gradually wading through the photos taken.

Hyperdimension Neptunia: The Animation

Hyperdimension Neptunia: The Animation comes off as a love letter to its dearest of fans and on the hand, a potentially alienating experience for any new ones. Whatever the case, despite it being a clustered and cluttered adaption of the franchise, it is fair to call the series "selfless and indulgent enjoyment" for almost anyone as an anime and a fair representation of its brand.

Disgaea D2: A Brighter Darkness Review

If you load up Disgaea D2 without knowing what you're letting yourself in for, you might want to invest in a pair of ear plugs. Or turn the volume down, at least. I say this because one character, Flonne, has a real glass-shattering pitch to her voice. We're talking a squeal tuned to such a piercing degree that it had an acquaintance, who was sharing the room I was playing in, raising their eyes from a book to enquire just "what the hell" I could be playing, and if it was a child's game or not. No, it's not a child's game. It's a silly game, and there's a difference.

Flonne's hair-raising conversational tones sort of exemplify the Disgaea spirit, you see. As obnoxious as the voice is, it works in the context of this campy, self-aware turn-based RPG. Forget Final Fantasy Tactics with all of its high-flung politics and serious-faced philosophising, Disgaea D2: A Brighter Darkness is a tale about poorly made statues created by penguin monsters and curious trans-gender activities caused by the influence of angel magic.

6 Simple Ways to Reduce Your Risk of Cancer

Big Pharma would make tens of thousands of dollars off of your cancer diagnosis. They wouldn't give you a real solution, but would merely prolong your illness so you can continue to spend your savings (and beyond) on their toxic cancer drugs. What the medical industry doesn't seem to want to discuss (in addition to a cure) is how to prevent cancer. THE FACT IS: CANCER IS PREVENTABLE.

Cancer rates have climbed significantly over the past 100 years and that's due, in part, to our diets and lifestyle choices. Fortunately, we can take this knowledge and take big steps towards cancer prevention. Best of all, we can start now.

The Sixth Mass Extinction Is Upon Us: Can Humans Survive?

Annalee Newitz writes at the :

Over the past four years, bee colonies have undergone a disturbing transformation. As helpless beekeepers looked on, the machinelike efficiency of these communal insects devolved into inexplicable disorganization. Worker bees would fly away, never to return; adolescent bees wandered aimlessly in the hive; and the daily jobs in the colony were left undone until honey production stopped and eggs died of neglect. Colony collapse disorder, as it is known, has claimed roughly 30 percent of bee colonies every winter since 2007.

Earthlink Could Double In Two Years With Responsible Debt Management


Acquisitions Another way that EarthLink is attempting to develop itself into an IT leader is through acquisitions. In fact, it is due to a series of acquisitions since 2010 that are the reason that the business services segment now overshadows the consumer services division. Major acquisitions include ITC Deltacom, a telecom service provider acquired in October 2010, as well as One Communications, which was one of the largest privately held telecom solutions providers in the United States, in December of that same year.

Breaking Bad Season 5 Episode 16: "Felina"

And we're here.The final episode in what's probably the best final season of any tv show."Felina" had a lot of expectations to live up to, as Breaking Bad is one of those tv shows where the fate of the characters frames everything that happened before it.Was it a good finale?Did it do the series justice?

I would say yes.While not the best episode this season (that goes to Ozymandias), the conclusion was as satisfying as one could hope for.The final episode gave us everything we wanted to see.Walt gets revenge on the Nazis? Check.Jesse gets revenge on Todd? Check.Walt finds something to do with his money while bossing around Gray Matter? Check.Most importantly, Walt finally admitted to Skyler and Jesse what they've been waiting to hear all series long.

For Skyler, her final confrontation with Walt was the moment where he stopped using his family as an excuse for his actions.Walt finally admits what had suspected all long."I did it for me, I liked it. I was good at it. I was alive."His relationship with her cannot be salvaged, as is the case with his relationship with his son.The only thing he can offer her now is whereabouts of Hank and Gomies' bodies.

Canada: Cover-up On Csec's Spying And Police-state Apparatus


Harper said it will create 40,000 jobs in the U.S. "The logic behind this project is simply overwhelming," the prime minister said. Harper said politics has cast doubt on whether the pipeline will be approved but said he's optimistic it will be approved. "Ultimately, over time, bad politics make bad policy," he said. "The president has always assured me that he will a make decision that's in what he believes is in the best interests of the United States based on the facts. I think the facts are clear." The Obama administration is considering whether to approve the pipeline, which would carry 800,000 barrels of oil a day from Alberta across six U.S. states to the Texas Gulf Coast. A decision late this year or early next year. Republicans, and business and labor groups, have urged the Obama administration to approve the pipeline as a source of much-needed jobs and a step toward North American energy independence. Environmental groups have been pressuring President Barack Obama to reject the pipeline, saying it would carry "dirty oil" that contributes to global warming. They also worry about a spill.

Rose Wilder Lane, Libertarian Babe

I generally vacation in the Missouri Ozarks, and have since I was a kid, with my parents, when we would go to Branson before it turned into a senior citizens' entertainment mecca featuring, of all things, one Shoji Tabuchi, an Asian fiddle player with a huge toothy grin and a Moe Howard bowl haircut.

He's completely normal, though, compared to the Ejector Seat, in which two people are strapped into a seat, with their arms across their chests (perfect for a fitting ready-made into a pine box, in my opinion) and hurled shrieking a few hundred feet into the air in-between two elastic cables anchored to two towers. I opined I wouldn't go on it for less than $1,000 cash, since I had no desire to being catapulted into the sky like those knights in MONTY PYTHON AND THE HOLY GRAIL, when they answered the questions wrong at the bridge. Instead I played miniature golf at the place next door, which featured a real crashed Indiana Jones-type airplane stuck on top of a gigantic fake rock shaped like a skull. Branson's now an unusual town, to the say the least. And I got a hole-in-one, too.

It's blog time ....

I finally had the appointment with my ortho doctor for my shoulder.She agreed it was a good thing for me to put off the surgery.Losing weight and not being under so much stress will be a good thing.No sense taking chances I don't need to.She xrayed my neck and other shoulder and I didn't like what I heard.I already know that my feet have arthritis.I already know my hands do.I know it's in my knees too.Well now, it's not only in my left shoulder, it's in my right.It's also where my collar bone and shoulder meet.The upper spine xray showed it's in my spine too.C4, 5, and 6.Super.And I know if they did the xrays of my lower back, it's there too. I know now that it is something I have to find a way to live with.It doesn't make me happy, but it's my reality.I have to learn to live in my own reality.And be happy.We are changing my meds so I don't need to be on percocet.I hate taking that stuff.But it did work.We are trying a new to me arthritis med called relafen.Anyone out there used it?Any reactions?Advice?So far it seems to be doing okay.It's great not to be so tired all the time.She also gave me shots in both shoulders.It always takes a couple days, but it's all good now.~~~~~~Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes.Don't resist them - that only creates sorrow.Let reality be reality.Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.~~Lao Tzu~~~~~~



But you're not tasting me!! (P.29)

This story the characters family with seven children and various animals. I read this book at the first I think everyone and all animals over hungry. This story start one day mother decided to make pancakes for break fast. And when suddenly the pancake start talked and escape for didn't want to eat, I felt very strange. That's because usually made dish didn't speak. Anyhow this story the pancake escaped and chased from the fox, the goat, the cat, the cat, the duck, the rabbit, the duck, the rabbit, the dog and all the family. Moreover i got the most impression scene iswhen escape the pancake from everyone, speed was very fast because the pancake could escape dog or rabbit!! Finally the pancake met the pig although the pig was too clever. Because of this the pig herd the pancake and pretend help after that the pig ate the pancake.

Tally-Ho You Demon

Apparently, merely beginning life over again at age 60--this time, given to earn his fame and fortune with only native wit, good looks, and personal charisma--was too easy a task for super-human nitwit Tom Tassekoff.When his divine prosecutors saw how quickly he regained his lost fortune, recovered his lost loves, and cast off the infamy steamrollered all over him, setting everything to rights on a single September morning--the powers-that-be decided his penalty had to be intensified.

Update: Apparently beginning life over again at age61 with only his good looks, charisma, and native wit was not sufficiently challenging for dementing Tom Tassekoff.When the Gods saw how quickly he retook his fortune, his lost loves, and reinflated from the steamroller-flattening in minutes, they thought to inflict some punishment by which to remember his non-lethal sins.

Ruby on Rails

When I was at school I hated Computing. The machines were ancient, clapped out BBCs and they never showed you how to do anything remotely useful with them. I ditched it at the first opportunity, and all I can remember is playing a game where you were the owner of a candyfloss stand and had to keep your stock levels high in case a stray donkey had a nibble at your wares. Now I feel quite resentful looking back at how uninspiring those classes were and how I was steered (unsurprisingly) towards languages and literature instead of sciences and computing.

Today I had a chance to learn a little about how the internet actually works, rather than just being on it absolutely all the timeI got to do my first coding since the days of fiddling with Myspace HTML at the event, and very exciting it was too. Over the course of about five hours I managed to create a page with two images (Superman knitting and a parrot stirring a miniature pan of pasta with a spoon in his beak) and two lines of bad patter. Sadly I had to leave before I managed to work through the tutorial on putting it online so it remains in some incomprehensible ether until I learn what I'm doing.

Help with simple encryption

Hello everyone,

I am having trouble with an assignment. The assignment consists of a basic encryption and decryption program already written for me, I just have to write the encryption function. What we have to get the program to do is enter an integer and a text, and get the program to increment each letter in the text by the integer given. I did this by using a for loop and incrementing each value in the string by the integer.

Review: Runner Runner


Some thrillers need more than a touch of style and an attractive cast; they need a substantial storyline. It's not thatRunner Runner doesn't initially promise something meaty to bite on and the chance to watch it all play out in sunny Costa Rica, it's just things fizzle out and become mediocre when we've soon had enough of the sun, sea and smart suits. The smart suits have been done before in Ocean's films.

My Little Pony Friendship is Magic

Due to the kindness and generosity of my Okazu Heroes, I have very much been enjoying capping off a day's hard anime watching with the whipped cream and cherries of this ridiculously pleasant series. If you're the Hero who made this possible, please let me know so I can thank you properly!

takes what is a well-known and well-worn toy franchise and has imbued it with new life. Several of my friends suggested I watch it, culminating in a passionate plea from one friend, and so,. Not surprisingly, I fell for the charm of Twilight Sparkle and her friends and the sugar-sweet morality plays about friendship and love. I'm a sucker, I admit it. ^^ But there's plenty to like.

The previous post ended with a small preview on the ancient history of the 'Island of S. Antioco, which has its roots in very remote times. As mentioned, the Phoenicians - which at first reached the island sailing and merely trade with the Nuragical - founded the city of Sulki and dedicated themselves to trade, but also to fishing and agriculture, which was practiced at 'interior of the island, in the plain called "Canal" which not coincidentally means "fertile land" with regard to fishing, however, this was practiced not only at sea but it is believed that they were also exploited the ponds with nurseries . The tuna, which still makes the famous Sardinia, was caught at sea, preserved in salt - even today, arriving in S. Antioco, ponds where you can admire the sea water evaporates leaving a layer of salt on the surface of the sand - and sold. The houses were simple, made of mud brick walls were plastered with clay floors, often had an inner courtyard with a cistern for collecting eric sogard rainwater; close to the harbor is likely there was a large space reserved to the market, with a square surrounded by warehouses. Around 540 BC, Carthage eric sogard in Sardinia sent an army led by Malchus, which, however, was defeated by the Phoenicians were allied with the Sardinians, but the Carthaginians did not give to the company, attracted by the thriving agriculture and the rich mineral deposits, and around 510. C. Carthage was able to subdue and Sulki Tharros. The Carthaginian period remains an impressive necropolis occupies almost the entire hill of Sant 'Antioco, while two massive stone lions - now preserved in the city museum - were set to guard the door that opened in the walls. Even the Carthaginians, then used the Tophet as they did before the Phoenicians, deponendovi the remains of children who died at a very young age (see previous article).

Following the First Punic War, which ended in 241. C., the Romans gave up and left the island in the hands of Carthaginian, but shortly after, the mercenaries in the pay of the Carthage revolted and demanded the intervention of Rome so it was that, in 328 a. C., Sardinia - and therefore Sulci - passed into Roman hands.

How Suppression Led to Tarantism and Dancing Mania

I refuse to dance unless I've consumed at least half of my weight in grain alcohol (though I have been known to attempt the Dougie, as long as I'm by myself and the curtains have been drawn).Generally speaking, a request to get down on the dance floor will almost certainly send me into a state of blind terror, accompanied by hives and the ice sweats.

You can imagine, then, my horror when hearing about "tarantism," a disease which causes its victims to become irritable and restless, and was fatal unless treated immediately by engaging in aggressive dancing.It was relatively common during the 16th and 17th centuries in southern Italy, and is said to be the origin of the popular folk dance, "," which was performed by victims as the most important part of their therapy.

The Revolution will not be televised (it'll be on catch-up)

There is a war being waged.

It has been waged since the 1950s and is largely a cold war, but, there have been many, many casualties. Both sides have gained and lost ground in this perpetual conflict and in the digital age, there are no signs of it abating. It is of course, the war for your attention and for your money. The combatants, are Cinema and Television.

Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie (1995)

Version: Actors: 6/10Plot/script: 6/10Photography/visual style: 6/10Music/score: 6/10OVERALL: 6/10I maintain that I was not exactly a fan of as a child, but I cannot deny that I watched it, and enjoyed it. However, I was old enough to recognize that, although it was entertaining, it was also objectively bad. I am sure I was not the only person laughing at rather than with it, and this was what I hoped for when I tuned in to watch on television recently.It is common knowledge that Power Rangers was 'creatively' adapted from a Japanese kids' action television show called , with scenes inserted of western teenagers replacing the original Japanese dialogue, and martial arts and other action scenes dubbed over. It is probably fair to say that the adaptation was made with little respect toward the original, but then the same goes for the adaptation of from French into English, with reportedly making up his narrations from scratch without having a clue what the French translations were, and that is as loved by its fans now as it was then.The first thing I noticed about the movie is that it does not appear to be using footage from any Japanese version. Unlike the TV show, the main characters are sometimes seen during action scenes with their masks off, or even completely out of costume, so we can see it is the American actors and not Japanese ones. The six rangers themselves are indeed all American, although many of the supporting cast are Australian or British, including villain Ivan Ooze (played by Brit , probably best known as another villain, Dr. RenBelloq in ). Of the rangers, almost all have done very little work outside the Power Rangers franchise, the obvious exception being 'Black Ranger' . Bosch is possibly the biggest English-language voice actor in anime at the moment, with lead roles in major series such as , and . Needless to say, his acting ability has come on in leaps and bounds over the years since Power Rangers.In fairness to the film, I should point out that there are a couple of areas where it genuinely, unironically impressed me. Many of the costumes and props are really quite ornate and impressive, so kudos to , and for the props, and(now of the esteemed ) and for the costumes. It's a real shame that recognition for such sterling work has to come across as damning with faint praise, but it is true that it took such weakness elsewhere for these generally less prominent areas to stand out.

So, for instance, much of the acting is simply awful, and especially by the supporting cast. Some lines are delivered with simply agonizing awkwardness, and there were characters I almost watched through my fingers because I didn't want to face the embarrassment by proxy of whatever they would do next.The fight scenes are a mixed bag. Some of them are pretty good, exciting and dynamic, with an emphasis on style rather than gritty violence. Back-flipping into place is utterly pointless, but it is impressive to watch, and that emphasis on flashy moves has always been a part of what makes movie martial arts good to watch. On the other hand, the underlying key to a good fight scene, I always think, is how well the enemies fight, and these ones are rubbish. Have a look at it the next time you see a fight scene: if it's less good, the villains will spend quite a bit of time standing around, waiting to get hit, and assault the hero one by one. The better choreographed fights generally find ways to hide or evade this unrealism.I'm running out of non-bad things to say, but I found nothing to complain about in the overall direction and cinematography. If there are problems with the film (and there are!), they are not with the framing or shot selection. Director is another of those who have found redemption from previously dicey careers in the TV series , where he has shown a bit more style and vision in his 13 episodes to date, when given something more solid to work with.Which brings us to the real gaping chasm at the heart of the matter: the screenplay. Let's look at the main characters for instance, the rangers. I noticed that their characterization is very limited. Although there seems to have been some effort to make the team ethnically diverse (one black, one asian, one hispanic...), this does not extend to giving them character aspects in any way associated with their origins, as was the case in, for example, , a cartoon series from a similar period. I suppose they were scared of accusations of racism that might arise from racial stereotyping, which is absolutely fair enough, but the alternative is not to leave them without any personality whatsoever.I realized after a while that almost any line that comes out of any character's mouth could have been given to any one of the other rangers, without it changing the scene significantly. Once I noticed this, separating the characters again at all became very difficult. It was especially laughable when the scene came in which they were assigned animal totems based on their personalities: they were either totally interchangeable or, yes, just slightly racist - or both. Why did the Asian guy get that one, when it could have gone to anyone else? Does the caucasian male, already the implied leader of the group, need even more of an ego boost?Another fatal flaw is that characters frequently turn out to know or surmise things we know because we saw them, but they shouldn't because they weren't there. This is a common feature of especially low-quality scripts (see my review of ), betraying the lack of thought which has gone into them. Sometimes, these are presented as clever guesses which are taken as fact thereafter, despite a complete lack of evidence, but other times it just seemed that the screenwriter (shame on you, ) had forgotten that the character(s) was/were not there when that fact was revealed.To be fair, I said originally that I came to the film looking for something bad but fun, and I did find that in places. The film had its fair share of quips of varying quality, including some that are distinctly lame or groanworthy, but groaning at a particularly bad pun is part of what we enjoy about action films. It's not good, by any stretch of the imagination, but it is fun.Similarly, you've got to love a camp villain, and Ivan Ooze is uber-camp in the very finest tradition. The computer-generated special effects are totally incongruous when intercut and superimposed on real photography, but that struck me as great nostalgic fun, and I can't bring myself to treat it as an actual criticism. I have been told by people who were true fans of the show back in the day that they saw the CGI as an unwelcome change from the model-work that was used for giant monster and robot battles beforehand. This is no doubt a consequence of the fact that the movie was not based on the Japanese series, from which all these scenes were taken, and so they had to create them themselves, and using hardware well below the film industry top end at that. The full budget for the film was around $15 million, which didn't stretch far in terms of computer graphics in those days.When I told my friends I had seen this film, some of them said that they felt it was the beginning of the end for the franchise, that the film heralded a split from the Japanese original that weakened it and left it less enjoyable to them as kids. Power Rangers sequel series and spin-offs are still being made to this day, and pretty much continually during the intervening period. Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie earned them a lot of money from a legion of young fans, and would appear to still be capturing new hearts. Don't ever think, though, that high production values, or even high standards in any way, have anything to do with that success.

'Ink Master' season 3, episode 12 preview: Final 4 showcase their best and worst skills

We are already down to the final four ondoesn't it feel like this season has just flown by? Even though we haven't liked the judging style this season since most of it was wishy washy and favoring Tatu Baby, we still enjoyed the cast of artists that they had this year. So what tests are the artists facing this week to knock 4 down to 3?

The flash challenge portion of the competition is now over and next week has everyone tattooing the same canvas at once (poor canvas!). Not only that, but the artwork will be designed by some of the guest judges that we have seen this season (luckily they are all designed by tattoo artists and not some NFL pro with a bunch of tattoos claiming to be an expert) and they will only have 3 hours to complete it while testing every skill from line work to coloring, to finesse. What's going to be great about this challenge (which you can see a sneak peek of over at ) is that they are going to each be given a design that will test their specific weakness (sorry Jime, no new school this time). After watching the judges hand hold Tatu Baby this season we were a little worried that she was going to be given an easy design that plays to her strengths with claims that it doesn't, but we were pleasantly surprised when they didn't do that.

'The Amazing Race 23preview: 'Afghanimals' Leo & Jamal are officially boss

We may have only seen about a minute of the new season but we have already decided that the "Afghanimals," otherwise known as Leo & Jamal, are going to be one of our favorite teams in existence. They are funny, enthusiastic, and really seem to be pretty cognizant that this is a TV show, and they have a certain responsibility to viewers beyond just competing. We do love that they bring a different sort of diversity to the show than what we traditionally see, but this comes secondary to them just having such fantastic personalities.

In the video below, they do a stellar job of showing off the right way to do paragliding through what we believe to be Chile: Being so enthusiastic about it that you don't really allow the time for fear to really get in the way of anything. Meanwhile, self-proclaimed "baseball bunnies" NickyCBS doesn't want to have that sort of issue on their hands.

NBC's 'The Voice' season 5: Some Cee Lo Green silliness (video)

We all know that Cee Lo Green is and over the years he's developed a habit of being the only coach with a recurring sidekick. On the show's second season, it was Purrfect the Cat who was spotted with him from time to time, and he followed that up with a bird. As for this season, rumor has it that he actually had a boa constrictor that he tried to use for some things, but it wasn't quite so cute and cuddly and it may not be shown at all.

However, let's go back to the origins of Purrfect during season 2. Was she the only animal that "auditioned" for the part? The video below is both completely silly and also kind of funny, since it features a variety of different creatures "trying out" to land the part of Cee Lo's coveted sidekick on the show. There is a rather enormous dog, a snake named "Banana," a bunch of assorted canines, and of course Purrfect who all tried to find a perfect spot on the show, but only one ended up making the cut.

Breaking Bad: Inside Episode 5 15

Breaking Bad's Cast & Crew Takes You Behind-the-Scenes Of "Granite State"

In the penultimate episode of AMC's , we learned the fate of the White family following Walter's disappearing act. While Walter was on the run, Skylar was forced to face the music. Since the DEA doesn't have Walter to punish, they've decided to use Skylar to smoke him out of hiding, or at the very least punish in his stead. Walter Jr.'s life seems back to normal, but gone is the kid who looked up to his father. In his place is a young man who realizes his parents are the people he thought they were. In other words, Jr. has finally become a man. Meanwhile, Jesse is still working as Todd's meth slave. When he concocts a plan to escape, it's met with disastrous results.Walter is down and out after he realizes the $11 million he's worked so hard to keep is essentially worthless now that he's hiding in a cabin dying of cancer, and his family has written him off. When he sees Elliot and Gretchen Schwartz disavowing him as well, that was the last straw, and ended up motivating Walter to get back in the game. Jesse's escape from his prison results in Andrea's death. Now the tentative feelings of "friendship" Todd feels for him may be in jeopardy. When Todd was the only one going to bat for Jesse, betraying him may end up proving deadly for Mr. Pinkman. Now that Walter is 'in the wind' and the DEA breathing down her neck, Skylar's life now lies in ruins. Take a look as the cast and crew discuss episode 515, "Granite State."

Time To Grind

My last post was about our home that we are building. This post will not be about selling or buying homes either but it will be about some work my wife and I have done to our bodies this year. A year ago I lost a bunch of weight, about 60 pounds. I was really happy with the 'new me' and I took football season off from dieting and exercising as a reward. I gained about 10 pounds back but this year we really got after our fitness. It wasn't so much about losing weight but that was a nice side effect. My wife and I discovered that we love to run. Running has become a big part of our lives and we have done several 5K's and 10K's this year. We are going to be running a 12K in a few weeks and have a plan to run a half marathon in December.

All of this running and conitnuing to hit the gym has meant I lost the 10 pounds I gained last football season plus another 20. I am down now a total of 80 pounds from my all time high and I could not be happier. I love the way I look and the way I feel now. I can't imagine my life without running. It is such a great way to get in shape and stay in shape and is something that you don't need a lot of fancy, expensive equipment to do. I love it. I do have a slight knee injury right now requiring me to take some time to rest (driving me nuts since this is the meat of our race schedule and when I need to be doing the most running) and so lately I have been getting my bike out and riding that as well. Hopefully my wife and I can accomplish our goals in the final races of the year and finish the half marathon in December that we are looking forward to so much. One thing I have learned is that our lives are so much more productive now that we are in shape and fit. We have also learned that we are most definitely 'runners' and proud to be runners.

A Time to Love and a Time to Die (1958)


In the 1930s Hans Detlef Sierck started making short melodramas set in exotic lands, which proved enormous box-office hits in his native Germany. As his career was beginning, unfortunately so was the rise of fascism in Europe. Because Sierck was politically opposed to the Nazis, as well as having a Jewish wife, he decided to flee the country, first to Switzerland and then to the United States. Eventually in Hollywood, his name was anglicised to Douglas Sirk, the name that would become famous for creating lush melodramas throughout the 1950s like All That Heaven Allows (1955) and Imitation of Life (1959). In 1958 Sirk created a film starring John Gavin and his chiselled jaw as a German soldier fighting on the Eastern Front. A Time to Love and a Time to Die (1958), based on a novel by Erich Maria Remarque (best known for All Quiet on the Western Front) and filmed in widescreen Cinemascope would be heralded by Jean-Luc Godard as Sirk's masterpiece, and is now released on Eureka! Entertainment's Masters of Cinema Blu-ray collection.

The attackers are a gang of hooded kids; their weapon of choice a hypodermic needle. Fast forward a year or so and Tommy's suffering from acute agoraphobia, chronically depressed and in fear of losing Baby Elsa to social services. But a series of flashbacks and visions has Tommy wondering whether the hooded attackers, from before, are still at large.

Goji Berries

Most fruit, like apples, pears, bananas, oranges, etc. are wonderfully healthy foods, but we would never turn to them as a source of protein. All fruits have trace amounts of protein - a cup of apples will provide 1 gram and a cup of raisins will provide 5 grams (according to the USDA). Vegetables are similar - a cup of carrots, onions, or tomatoes will yield about 1 gram of protein as well. BUT ONE FRUIT, GROWN HIGH IN THE HIMALAYAN FOOTHILLS, CONTAINS NUMEROUS TRACE MINERALS, VITAMINS, AND IS CONSIDERED A GREAT SOURCE OF VEGETARIAN PROTEIN - GOJI BERRIES.

Just one cup of Goji berries, also called wolfberries, or , CONTAIN UP TO 12 GRAMS OF PROTEIN!

What's Next On My List? Alice In Wonderland

I know what controversy surrounds TIM BURTON, ever since he started to cast the same two people in every movie of his. But honestly I don't mind, because they are talented actors who always add something new to the material that is given to them. I also don't care about the peculiar music that is always credited to one person. What I do care about is the movies one by one and although I highly appreciate BURTON's vision and his works, sometimes I feel that he is under pressure by Hollywood to produce more, (does the ring a bell?) while he obviously works better when he takes his time (like everyone else really!). That said, I wanted to talk about this movie as I have seen it for the first time only a couple of days ago:

Alice, our young lead is tormented by nightmares. She shares the same nightmare for years to come, until one day it all seems to become a reality when she is supposed to get engaged. She runs away and follows a rabbit with a blue coat down his hole, only to find herself in a place called Underworld.

Bruch at Lodge, Clever Title Not Found

When Marie created Brunch Club, we agreed we had to revisit The Lodge, a popular spot in the middle of Williamsburg, Brooklyn. It's an appropriately dubbed place, with all the aesthetic charm of a Colorado mountain cabin: rustic woodwork furniture, deer antler decorations, drinks served in mason jars, 19th century drawings on the wall, and an old rabbit-ear television. The rustic vibe is counterbalanced with a definite rock 'n' roll edge: the playlist features a healthy mix of 60s proto-punk, 80s indie rock, and 90s alternative, and I wouldn't be surprised to learn the staff all play in a band together and see them pile into a beat-up van with a drum kit, two amps, and a wet dog. With its Ron Swanson meets Mark Arm atmosphere, I'm sure there are those who'd like to deride The Lodge as "Williamsburg Hip", but screw them, this is the kind of place tailor-made for me.

The generous portions at The Lodge are big plus. While some of my "colleagues" opted for some rather impressive looking French toast, I for one went with the classic combination, steak and eggs (it's one of the few true brunch dishes: one part breakfast, one par lunch). I remembered it being better the first time we'd been (I'm a bit particular about steak being cooked to a perfect medium-rare, and this time was closer to medium). Despite this, it was still enjoyable, if a little less tender and juicy than I'd prefer. The Lodge offers just about any potato side dish you can imagine (home fries, French fries, sweet potato fries, tater tots), all of them excellent complement to poached eggs, especially with a little ground pepper.

'Sons of Anarchy' season 6 spoilers: The body count (shocker!) shall rise

If you are a "" fan, we imagine that you understand sarcasm when you see it. At this point, it is hardly much of a shocker at all to see the death of any character, whether it be a two-episode guest star or someone that has been a series regular since the beginning. After what transpired with Opie, we like to imagine that we have been conditioned to accept that death can happen to anyone. However, this expectation of death does not necessarily mean that we suffer no emotional fallout.

Case in point? If Tig dies on Tuesday night's "Wolfsangel" (), we will write our episode review in between sniffles. The majority of these characters have done terrible things, but at the same time you feel an attachment to them. Tig's not a villain on the show, and we cannot really sit here and think of any deaths that made us want to stand up and cheer. The dad thing to remember here is that he is not the only character who could be leaving the land of the living soon.

'Star Wars': Animated open letter to J.J. Abrams makes four demands

A new animated video calls on J.J. Abrams, director of the upcoming and highly controversial sequel "Star Wars: Episode VII," to handle the beloved franchise with care.

Created by Prescott Harvey with the creative agency , the animated open letter offers the director four rules "to make 'Star Wars' great again": 1. The setting is the frontier; 2. The future is old; 3. The Force is mysterious; and 4. Star Wars isn't cute.

Figurative Fridays: Personal Investment . . . and Robots

Here is one of the original models I found at my hardware store. About 1983.

When I was growing one of my joys was robots. Somewhere I picked up some Japanese robot model kits; strangely, I think it might have been my local hardware store. I was captivated with the beautifully painted illustrations on the boxes. They were painstakingly painted with dirt and rust lines and flaking paint as if they were real well-worn machines. Someone had spent a lot of time and thought painting these non-existent robots. Someone really loved and cared about this imaginary world. Because someone, or a group of people, had spent so much time and energy that they made beautiful illustrations for the humble cover of a four-dollar plastic model box, it made me want to know more about this story.

LISA-ANN GERSHWIN sees evidence of global warming and human impact on the environment everyday in her work. She is one of a handful of jellyfish experts in the world.

Masters of the Universe Classics

So as can be read and, the recent announcement of Blade at the 2013 Power-Con has stirred up all kinds of questionable feelings in my Toyns (that's toy loins, in case you were curious) and has renewed my nascent interest in plumbing the depths of that revered classic, the Masters of the Universe movie. Admittedly, it seems like even the New Adventures of He-Man has a more dominant and vocal following than we of the MOTU movie, but we are strong, we are proud, we are legion. Well, maybe we're three or four guys with questionable taste in cinematic endeavors, but, dammit, we shall be heard!

In case the record isn't broken yet, the Masters of the Universe movie is better than you think it is. And I know you have an opinion on the subject because if you're reading this, you're either a MOTU fan, a toy fan, or just a fan of clicking links at random. Which is just fine. But if you say that it's not the most awesome '80s live-action movie based on a children's toy property, then you're just flat wrong. I'm sorry, but you are.

The habits of a loner

Picked up an organ donation card from the district health care centre today. Thought it might be good to keep one of those in my wallet. I have registered online for that and told my mother about my wish as well, but just to be certain or something. It's like my family is frowning at me for talking about that sort of stuff, but the thing is I really could die from suicide any day. I always have that in the back of my mind, and I gotta be prepared for the possibility that I might die soon. And I think that is a good thing, that I'm at least taking some responsibility for that. Whether it be organ donation, my will or funeral plans. Though it is a little weird thinking about that stuff, feels unreal somehow.

Other than that, I'm collecting beautiful English words on a list in my cell phone. So far I've got:

US-Japan deal could lead to more organic options

WASHINGTON: The United States and Japan have agreed to make it easier to import each other's ORGANIC PRODUCTS, the latest step in a global effort that could give consumers access to more and cheaper organic food.

The AGRICULTURE DEPARTMENT planned to announce an agreement Thursday between the United States and Japan that will allow organic products to be certified in one of the countries and be sold as organic in both.

'American Horror Story: Coven' Full Opening Titles & More TV Spots

Brad Falchuk and Ryan Murphy's spooky series will return to FX in early October, so that it can be properly settled in by the time Halloween rolls around, and having covered ghosts and maniacs the show is now moving on a story all about witches. The returning cast includes Jessica Lange, Evan Peters and Lily Rabe, and is rounded out by newcomers like Kathy Bates and Angela Bassett.

FX has so far been doing an excellent job of promoting the show with a series of , featuring brief clips of very creepy imagery that capture the tone of the show without giving away much of its plot. The first trailer that shows actual clips was , and it revealed that Taissa Farmiga will be playing a teenager who discovers that she is a

J-List is at AWA, Hope to See You Here!

I've made the long hop from Japan to the U.S., this time to Atlanta, Georgia, where I'll be attending . If you'll be at the show we hope you'll come by our humble J-List/JAST USA booth (#100, very easy to remember) and say hello, and check out the we have for you. (We've got far less stock than at our normal shows since we flew in directly from Japan, so if you're looking for , or , it's best to get them from the site directly.) We also have an awesome panel on Saturday night at 8 pm, which we hope to see you at!

We're getting ready to party in Atlanta, CNN style, but without Georgia Coffee. This is my first time in The Peach State, except for domestic transfers through Atlanta. I already took my employee Yasu to Varsity, a drive-in restaurant that's been around since 1928, and after the show we plan to visit some of the highlights of the city, including CNN and the Coca-Cola headquarters. Without a doubt the most famous image of Georgia to the Japanese is one that doesn't actually exist here: Coca-Cola's long-selling brand of canned coffee called Georgia Coffee, which it started marketing in 1975. (Back in the early 90s there was a cool line of Twin Peaks advertisements for Georgia Coffee, and one of my first business ventures on the early Internet was, ah, "liberating" these posters and selling them on USENET.) Georgia is also famous in my family because a friend of my son's couldn't pronounce the word properly, despite attending an immersion school for learning English. He pronounced it "Ji-ro-gia," so that naturally became his nickname until the end of time.We're happy to be working with in releasing to the world in English, something we feel is an important event for the genre of visual novels and unique games from Japan. Steins;Gate is a hardcore SF story about an amateur science lab that inadvertently creates a machine to "time leap" into the past, which naturally causes a large number of problems with an evil organization called SERN that could destroy the future. We're happy to report that the official U.S. site is up, filled with information on the story and characters of steins. The URL is , we hope you'll browse it and preorder the upcoming limited edition. (If the site doesn't come up for you it means DNS is still propagating, try again in a couple hours.) The game is scheduled for release early in 2014, and BOTH VERSIONS OF THE GAME ARE 100% DRM FREE.

The Story So Far: Soul Eater

Set in the Shinigami technical school for weapon meisters, the series revolves around 3 groups of each a weapon meister and a human weapon. Trying to make the latter a "Death Scythe" which is the highest title for a weapon and thus fit for use by the Shinigami, they must collect the souls of 99 evil humans and 1 witch.(Source: MAL)SPOILER WARNING: Review discusses up to episode 30 of Soul Eater, per the Toonami broadcast of the series.Apparently, I have been harboring this illusion that I had been blogging about my Soul Eater anime experience for the past year or so. Manga, yes (although thanks to Yen Press' advanced releases, I'm hideously behind on that). Anime? Big no. Which is silly, because I've been watching the Toonami broadcast since the beginning and have been enjoying what has been, so far, one of the best shonen anime in the past decade. And no, it's not just because Soul Eater actually has an ending, clocking out with a modest 51 episodes (well, modest for a show of its genre). It's because Soul Eater is a legitimately enjoyable program that deserves every bit of praise it gets.

All You Need Is Love

#truelove #allowing #dating GPS for the Soul - The Huffington Post All You Need Is Love I am coming out of summer hibernation like a grizzly bear on the hunt for food. I open my laptop for soul survival We are not born with an instruction manuals, how to's or directions. We are born chasing answers, looking for pieces to the puzzle. All of us are painting, writing, sculpting our own masterpiece but collectively a part of a big mosaic. I was recently chatting with new found friends and artists Markus and Leslie of Antidote about their recent team-building event they did for Swarovski. It was a painting experience for each member of the company, painting a personalized canvas unleashing their inner Bob Ross. Once completed, the Swarovski team hung their pictures to then only see that their picture was a part of a bigger picture. Bringing a realization that although each member has a job, without the other employees the picture would be incomplete; as in life. We all are interwoven into the fabric of each other's lives. Like cotton, we absorb, can be stained, worn and ripped. We move about through the motions of each day many times without notice of how our actions and sometimes non-reaction has a cause and effect. We navigate through life blindly trying to pick up pieces along the way, trying to make sense and find purpose, in order to move forward in "the know." It may sound like sun shiny shiitake mushrooms at the end of a rainbow, but even once purpose is found, there is always a greater purpose unfolding. The picture never truly clear until our last leaf has fallen. We are born to always be growing, learning, unveiling answers. Not just for ourselves but for others.

I am clumsily stumbling for answers for: How to process tragedy and loss, heartbreak, ache and loss?
RIO Fitness Chicago(R) Tip:

If you are pregnant, and want to lose the "baby weight" quickly after & stay as healthy as possible while pregnant, the best way to do that is to eat healthy & stay active DURING the pregnancy.

Exercising while pregnant IS okay to do until the third trimester. A few precautions need to be taken though: 1) Wear a heart rate monitor while you do, because your heart rate should not exceed 140 for a long period of time to minimalize your body's internal core temperature. 2) No exercises that involve any laying flat on the back and no prolonged standing ones. Both pool blood around the fetus which is dangerous. 3) No jumping/bouncing exercises. 4) No using unstable equipment like stability balls/BOSUs/etc unless under the direct supervision of a certified fitness instructor.

John Houseman as Professor Kingsfield.

The Paper Chase. James Bridges' 1973 drama about the first year in Harvard Law School has aged well thanks mostly to Timothy Bottoms' appealing performance. Bottoms plays James Hart, a Minneapolis native who initially seems out of place with his classmates--many of whom are affluent and/or brilliant. Hart, though, is a hard worker and doesn't lack confidence (indeed, while he's a genuinely nice guy, he is also self-centered).

comic relief


By Rosanna Abrachan | ENS - BANGALOREPublished: 23rd May 2013 10:47 AMLast Updated: 23rd May 2013 10:47 AMWith its license to relive the magic of comics and literally wear the mettle of superheroes, the first annual Bangalore Comic Con has much in store for fans of graphic artCan never get enough of the Caped Crusader and the 75 year old legacy of the blue tights-red cape-superpowers endowed Kal-El? Pledged loyalty to the Star Wars clan or eagerly following the making of the Assassin's Creed movie? Let your heart go out to the do-righter cowboy Woody when he is faced with having to leave his friends in Toy Story? Pride yourself on being a fan of Goku, from the Dragon Ball Z saga, for only he could kick God' behind?Then, block your dates for June 1-2 as the first annual Bangalore Comic Con gears up to unleash a range of comics, international publishers, workshops, book launches and merchandise,from 11 am - 7 pm, at the Koramangala Indoor Stadium, near National Games Village.Comic lovers are in for a treat as the annual Comic Con arrives in the city just eight months after its travelling edition, the Comic Con Express, chugged into the city last September. "Our Express version saw a footfall of nearly 30,000 last year and this encouraged us to create a dedicated annual event for Bangalore. We also plan to add one new city to our roster each year and this time, the choice is between Pune, Kolkata, Chennai and Hyderabad," says Jatin Varma, founder, Comic Con India. Varma, along with artist Abhijeet Kini (Angry Maushi) and writer Akshay Dhar (Ground Zero), will speak at a Comic Con exclusive on the emerging trend of self-publishing.A novel addition to this year's conference is international presence by way of Cinebook (UK), Darkhorse Comics (USA), Diamond Select Toys (USA), Robot & Spark (UAE) and Renovada Merch (UAE). Comic Con Bangalore also plans to throw open the doors to the world of graphic novel creation through a session with Jerry Pinto of Scholastic, who crafted 'When Crows are White'. Homeboy George Mathen aka Appupen will present his latest silent novel 'The Legends of Halahala' and the makers of Tinkle Digest will share updates on their latest work. A comics quiz by Marrs and an Amar Chitra Katha quiz are also on the cards. Alicia Souza, who regales Bangaloreans with quirky illustrations and quips on her two furry loves, Lola Bear and Charles-B, sees the Comic Con movement giving a much needed thrust to the 'underground' comics scene, as she puts it. "It is interesting to see comic lovers being knowledgeable about what they read and more girls joining the comics lovers brigade," she says.In an age where graphic storytelling is a niche art, Tejas Menon, a media professional and a serious comics fan, believes Comic Con plays not only brings comic lovers together but also connects closet comic creators with publishers. "What sets apart the international editions of Comic Con from what we have here is the involvement of the movie and the television industry. Production houses host movie panels and screen trailers and exclusive footage of sci-fi and fantasy movies and this promotes the event on a large scale. While movie exclusives and merchandise are crowd pullers, the focus should be on comics," he adds.Comic Con India is considering the possibility of including panel discussions on films in the coming two years. "The Indian market does not generate revenues that would encourage international studios to bring in exclusive content. Same applies for popular television shows, as most of them run in syndication, the channels here are not inclined to spend money on bringing down the star cast when the returns are limited. Despite such odds, we are slowly and steadily convincing international companies to take our market seriously and bet on it long term," explains Varma.The highlight of Comic Con Bangalore is the costume contest, 'Cosplay', that is bound to have comic buffs turning out their wardrobes and running to their neighbours for sabres, capes, masks, et al. And due recognition awaits in the form of assured gifts for all who turn out in costume and five winners, one each from the categories of comic book, anime, animated series, sci-fi and gaming, stand a chance to win a trip to Goa. And 10,000 lucky visitors can stake their claim to a limited edition Comic Con Swag bag.This one here is definitely no comedy of errors.LAUNCH PADTitle- Julius Caesar Published By: Campfire PublishingTitle- Aghori- Book#3 (Series of the year nominee) Published By: Holy Cow EntertainmentTitle-Mixtape Published By: New, upcoming and established creatorsTitle- Defective Detectives Published By: Tinkle Tall TalesTitle-Shikari Shambu Published By: Tinkle Tall TalesTitle-Butterfingers Published By: Tinkle Tall TalesTitle- The Princely Buffalo Published By: Trendy ToonsTitle-The Caravan Published By: Anitrax MediaTitle- Ravanayan Finale Published by: Holy Cow EntertainmentTitle- TWELVE Preludes Published by: Manta RayTitle- Tamas Published By: Mrinal

The male gaze focusing on the text from American Beauty

Throughout the clip we can apply laura mulvey's theory of male gaze and how it is presented to us through the text .The first aspect to look at is the way the view of the camera records the text this is shown when the male gaze is presented there is a loud non diegetic sound as it splits the guy from reality to his sort of fantasy version when the cheerleaders form a certain position it zooms focusing on the cheerleader in the middle,there is also a spot light that appears on the character drawing the audience that she is an important main focus.Throughout the male characters fantasy version in the text the camera shots start to zoom even more on to her the audience view close ups of the girls body focusing in features of the male gazes interest for example her chest,in the background of the image it is darken and a school bell is ringing there is no people around other than him and the girl as a long shot is shown to see only him on the stands.

When observing the view of which the audience sees it is clear that the view of the cheerleader girl is from a point of view from the males eyes however the girl is shown to be unaware of the situation and doesn't realize he is staring at her this means the girl is passive and the man is active.Linking this with laura mulveys ideas with the male gaze her theory is proven true in this situation as the man has the dominant ideologically by showing only his view on the girl not including the girls view on him and she is shown as just a object for his scopophilia.
