          LGBT Christians Blog for Sanity        

Today, Christians across the internet are blogging their faith and their support for LGBT people through a synchroblog project organized by Justin Lee, the Executive Director of the Gay Christian Network. The synchroblog is timed to match the launch of Lee’s new book, TORN: Rescuing the Gospel from the Gays-vs.-Christians Debate.

Tired of politicized “debates” about the lives of LGBT people and Christians, Lee has attempted to take a middle approach. “This is an issue that is tearing apart families and damaging the reputation of Christianity. But as much as our culture talks about this issue, there’s very little actual conversation going on,” Lee claims.

Lee’s book, TORN, will reach those in both the Christian world, and those who are, know, or care for someone who is LGBT identified. It asks for people to examine assumptions and to have careful conversations with one another that seek to learn, instead of to “win”.

The synchroblog draws others into the same conversation. Bloggers are asked to write a blog post in favor of sanity and compassion in LGBT/Christian conversation. Several popular Christian bloggers are already participating, including Rachel Held Evans and Matthew Paul Turner.

As the country reflects on the successes of marriage equality campaigns, we are seeing that caring conversation is making a real difference. Many in Minnesota credited the defeat of the anti-marriage equality amendment partially on a campaign of conversations across the state. Just a year ago, GLAAD launched a Thanksgiving campaign “I’m Going to Let Aunt Betty Feel a Little Awkward This Thanksgiving” to encourage conversations around the Thanksgiving table.

Check out the posts that have been submitted so far at Justin Lee’s Tumblr. Share the best quotes or links to the blogs that speak best to your experience. Bloggers interested in joining the synchroblog can still offer submissions and join in the conversation.

          Comment on Why Feminism Is Wrong About Patriarchy by Typhon Blue by valeriekeefe        
Please can we stop with the de-sexing of women with female neurology and frequent estrogenic cross-development, huh? It's like, hey, way to make trans women run screaming for the hills so that you only get the most-self-hating as activists, just like the TERFs do (yes, pro-TERF trans women, I still can't get my head around that either.) Anyway, I like my model better, and yes, class still intersects and yes, cis men (as presently counted) are not considered the unidirectional oppressors of cis women. http://valeriekeefe.tumblr.com/post/43998770156/so-i-kept-wanting-to-find-a-method-of-proof-for
          Primer Vistazo a la Campaña de Robert Pattinson para Dior Homme + Detalles sobre la Conferencia de Prensa        
La espera ha terminado: POR FIN tenemos las primeras imagenes (aunque estén en mala calidad, mejor que nada) de Robert Pattinson en el famoso y esperadísimo anuncio para Dior. OMG tiene muy buena pinta.

Para ver el video tendremos que esperar un poquito más :(

Dior: Dior se complace en anunciar que el actor Robert Pattinson es la nueva cara de la fragancia Dior Homme fragrance. #DiorRob

De la web de Dior Mag

"El hombre detrás del perfume"
Él ha vuelto de Autralia dónde estaba rodando la nueva película de David Michod con Guy Pierce, The Rover. Y pronto comenzará el rodaje de Maps to the Stars de David Cronenberg junto a John Cusack y Julianne Moore. Y luego será el turno de Hold On To Me, de James Marsh. Alguna idea? Preciavente, estuvo en Cosmopolis y Water For Elephants. Los cinéfilos deberían haberlo averiguado ya... Y su primer papel? Cedric Diggory en la cuarta entrega de la serie de Harry Potter. Caliente? Y luego... Bueno luego, por supuesto, vino la inolvidable Twilight Saga. No puede quedar ninguna duda, y lo has averiguado: Robert Pattinson dará cuerpo al nuevo hombre Dior, el nuevo Dior Homme.

• De Women's Wear Daily:

PARIS - Christian Dior Perfumes ha confirmado que el actor Robert Pattinson es la nueva cara de la fragancia de Dior Homme.
La estrella de "Crepúsculo" se une a una lista de embajadores famosos iluestres para las fragancias de Dior, que incluyen a Jude Law, Alain Delon, Natalie Portman y Charlize Theron.
El fotógrafo americano Nan Goldin y el director francés Romain Gavrais grabaron las campañas que protagoniza Pattinson, dijo Dior, haciendo notar que serán difundidas en Europa excluyendo UK, y Asia, excluyendo China y Japón.

• Comunicado Oficial de Dior - De Marie Claire UK

Después de meses de especulación sobre la colaboración de la estrella con la marca, la casa de Dior ha lanzado un comunicado oficial hoy confirmando la campaña.
Ellos han dicho: 'La Casa de Dior está encantada de anunciar que el actor Robert Pattinson va a ser la nueva cara de la fragancia Dior Homme'.
El comunicado después alaba la exitosa carrera de Robert en un gran número de películas de alto-perfil, diciendo: 'Desde su primer papel relevante en 2005 en la 4º secuela de Harry Potter, la estrella de cine Robert Pattinson ha sido más conocido recientemente por su papel en el éxito de taquilla, The Twilight Saga.
'Desde entonces él ha probado el alacance de sus talentos actorales eligiendo películas tan variadas como Remember Me de Allen Coulter, Water for Elephants de Francia Lawrence, en la que fue protagonista junto a Reese Witherspoon, o con su papel como Bel-Ami, el famoso personaje de Maupassant.
En el último tributo a su talento, David Cronenberg le escogió para protagonizar su última película, Cosmopolis, adaptada de la novela de Don De Lillo. Un papel sorprendente como el chico de oro que se estrenó en el Festival de Cine de Cannes de 2012.
Recientemente ha terminado de grabar The Rover, de David Michod, en Australia con Guy Pearce y pronto estará en el set en la próxima película de David Cronenberg, Maps To The Stars. Después, protagonizará Hold On To Me, dirigida por James Marsh y co-protagonizada por Carey Mulligan'.
(...)
Dior Homme añade: 'Hoy estamos emocionados de anunciar que se unirá al privilegiado círculo de caras de Dior. Fotografiado por el artista americano Nan Goldin y grabado por el director francés Romain Gavras, esta nueva campaña publicitaria de Dior Homme será distribuida ahora exclusivamente en Europa (excepto UK) y Asia (excepto China y Japón).

• Glamour.es

[...]

Y es que acabamos de saber que la maison le ha nombrado imagen de la nueva fragancia masculina de Dior Homme. El 'estreno' de esta nueva faceta lo podremos ver en septiembre, cuando se presentarán el perfume y la campaña con Robert como protagonista.

Además, Glamour será la primera de las revistas femeninas en tener una entrevista exclusiva con el actor. Será en el número de septiembre, y en ella nos contará todos los detalles de su nueva faceta como embajador de una firma de lujo. No es la primera vez que Robert Pattinson trabaja como modelo (recordemos que los inicios de su carrera fueron posando) pero sí lo es como imagen de una casa como Dior.

          That One Summer That Changes You...        


Hey, sweeties! Let begin by telling you...I've been on an adventure. Oh, yes, I've traveled a bit this summer, but I'm talking about that kind of adventure. I'm talking about real adventure. Life changing adventure. Transformational adventure! Like top-5-best-thing-ever-in-my-life adventure!! It's been so amazing, that I can't wait to tell you. But I must wait. But not too long!

In the meantime, while you're stewing away at home wondering "what could it be?," I'm going to leave you with some cryptic hints about what I'm about to announce.


A Series of Unfortunate Events...<

Is that cryptic enough for you? Any guesses?



          A Black And White 1860s Fundraiser        
They look like any other 19th century vignettes and portraits of children kneeling in prayer or cloaked in the U.S. flag.

But these cartes de visite (a calling card with a portrait mounted on it that was all the rage during the 1860s) featured Charles, Rebecca and Rosa — former slave children who looked white.

I saw a couple of the cards on Tumblr and wanted to know more about them, so I called Mary Niall Mitchell, associate professor of history at the University of New Orleans.

          How Did Thanksgiving End Up On Thursday?        
Move Thanksgiving to Friday? That's what F.B. Haviland asked President Hoover in 1929.

Didn't happen. But while we're on the subject, ever wonder why we carve our gobblers on the fourth Thursday of November? Hint: It's not because Thanksgiving Thursday is more alliterative than Thanksgiving Friday.

In 1789, President Washington declared Thurs., Nov. 26, as a "Day of Publick Thanksgivin," according to the National Archives.

          'Vintage Black Glamour' Exposes Little-Known Cultural History        
I was scrolling through my Tumblr feed a year or so ago, when I saw a photo of Joyce Bryant. The caption said she was once dubbed the "black Marilyn Monroe" and was mentioned many times in Walter Winchell's gossip column.

But, I had never heard of or seen Bryant before.

          Manual para ser una Chica del Bosque (aunque vivas en la ciudad)        
Antes de empezar, quiero deciros que blogspot no me deja comentar en casi ningún blog, estoy buscando por internet como solucionar el problema, si a alguien le pasa lo mismo o sabe como solucionarlo, le estaría muy agradecida si me ayudara...
********************************************

Somos muchas.
Muchas las que hemos nacido y vivimos en la ciudad o en el pueblo y las que sin embargo sentimos que nuestro corazón pertenece a los Bosques. Como puede una mujer que vive una vida normal, en la ciudad, que se levanta para trabajar en una oficina, tener ese algo de la magia de los bosques?

En Japón existen las Mori Girls, que traducido significan Chicas del Bosque que viviendo en la ciudad sus vidas normales han cambiado su estilo de vida, su manera de sentir, de vestir para transformarlas en las que serían si ellas vivieran en el bosque.



He recogido esa información de muchas fuentes y he preparado este pequeño compendio en español ya que hasta ahora no existe para inspiraros a aquellas que como yo tienen su alma en un lugar más verde, más salvaje y hermoso... el Bosque.
 
Hay algunas cosas de las que he leído que no me han gustado, muchas chicas se toman lo de ser una Chica del Bosque como una moda, una manera de vestir, entre las cosas que he leído está por ejemplo "tener una constitución delgada" cosa que me ha dejado con la boca abierta, quiero decir acaso el sentirse del Bosque tiene que ver con el peso? JAMAS!! Eso está en el corazón. Quisiera aclarar que aunque escriba este artículo dando una serie de parámetros es por darle un aspecto práctico y a la vez juguetón, pero el Bosque está en nuestro corazón :)
 
ESTILO DE VIDA
 
Las Chicas del Bosque viven su vida como si se tratara de un cuento de Hadas, ¿como vivirías con un estado de ánimo totalmente apacible?

Disfrutando al ver como pasas de una a otra estación?
 
Quizá preparando maravillosas meriendas, tomando el té y cocinando deliciosos pasteles...
 
 
Compra tu Té online AQUÍ
 
 
Paseando en bicicleta o paseando, siempre con una cámara de fotos en la mano...


  
Leyendo libros repletos de historias  ymaravillosas ilustraciones... Conoceis a Los Duendes del Reloj?  es un blog lleno de historias con el bosque y las Hadas como protagonistas...

 
Y Conoceis a algunas de las maravillosas cuentacuentos de nuestro país?... podeis escuchar los preciosos cuentos de Lua Seomún en su blog lleno de Magia e historias que erizan la piel ...También me fascina la magia de Cris Purrusalda, es alimento para el corazón...
 
Aprendiendo de la Naturaleza, cultivando un pequeño jardín y /o huerto en el balcón.
 
Coleccionando cosas bonitas , cajas de música, bolas de nieve, cuentos, fotografías ¿qué es lo que te gusta, qué te hace sonreír? colecciónalo y sé feliz!! ^:^
 
Viviendo sencillamente, de manera natural....
 
Qué música te inspira el bosque? Quizá Agnes Obel?


  
Descubre música distinta... Priscilla Hernández, Kokia o Joanna Newsom pueden transportarte muy muy lejos ;)

Si vivieras en el Bosque no harías todo lo que pudieras tú misma? Aprenderías a tejer y harías este otoño tu propia bufanda?

Las Mujeres del Bosque se sienten de maravilla en las tiendas de decoración y de menaje, entre hermosas tazas, teteras, manteles y cortinas...

 
También en las tiendas vintage y de antigüedades...
busca en su bolsillo seguro que encuentras un pequeño reloj...
 
Y sobretodo disfruta la vida y de este maravilloso planeta en que vivimos, está lleno de maravillas ocultas, disfruta de cada pequeño momento: qué bien huele el café! como te estremeces bajo la ducha cuando el agua corre por tu espalda!! que bien saben los tomates!

Nuestro mundo está lleno de maravillas....

 
COMO ES LA "MODA" EN EL BOSQUE
 
EL CABELLO
 
El cabello natural, corto, largo, liso o rizado pero natural, adornado con un lazo o una diadema...arreglos de mariposas, fresas o cerezasquedarán maravillosos también... los flequillos cortitos quedan muy de cuento, y te hacen sentir protagonista de una maravillosa historia...
Aquí teneis unas fotografías con tutoriales para peinaros como auténticas Hadas del Bosque




  

LA ROPA Y EL MAQUILLAJE  

 
 
 
Lo importante es que sea todo natural y mágico a la vez...
Maquillaje natural, o ausencia de él, pero quedan tan de cuento las mejillas sonrosadas ^:^ tal vez algo de colorete rosa?



Las uñas , mejor cortitas que largas, cómo puedes recoger setas y flores con las uñas largas?
 

Las faldas y vestidos son la ropa de cada día...


Vestir en los preciosos colores de la tierra, ocres, marrones, blancos,  verdes...y el precioso burdeos, hacen sentir y sientan tan bien!!


Las Mujeres del Bosque llevan sin duda capitas, caperuzas y ponchos.


Guardan sus pertenencias en bolsos de piel (yo usaré imitación ^:^)

Como buena mujer de los bosques, ama los animales y por tanto también los motivos de animales en la ropa: erizos, ciervos, mapaches, osos....

Lo mismo que los motivos de dulces y pasteles, ya que la Mujer del Bosque se refugia en su cabaña al caer la tarde para cocinar sus maravillosas tartas!!!


AQUÍ teneis 50 patrones de delantales!!!


Los motivos de flores tanto retro como liberty nos bendicen con las virtudes y la energía de la esencia de los bosques.

La Mujer del Bosque como huele? a flores? a Bayas? a cerezas? Como hueles?

Los leotardos y leggings son superconfortables y divertidos

          Vintage Barbie        
Okay, I am going to start this post with a plea, to any one who has been kind and loyal enough to continue following me despite the fact that, recently, I have been so entirely rubbish and negligent. Here goes. Please remind me never to leave it this long before posting again. Not only have I a) neglected all the followers that I've been so happy, excited and, most of all, grateful to acquire over the last nine months since starting this blog, but b) my head has been so full of ideas since my last post over two months ago, that it is now near to exploding, and I feel like I don't even know where to start.  Nevertheless, I will start somewhere, because it is my intention to turn my full commitment back to writing Porcelain Princess, so prepare yourself for the cathartic, sequin-spangled avalanche of ideas, inspiration and probably slightly hysterical sounding style-related sentences that are to follow. 

In my defense, I must explain that I started a three month internship at Groupon UK as a creative writer in May, and have now secured a permanent position (yay!) As great as this is, never before did I appreciate just how much having a full time job and lengthy commute into London zaps up pretty much all of your time and energy. Oh for the uni days of getting up at noon, dreaming up outfits all day long, writing whenever the moment took me and attending the occasional lecture or Zumba class...it would be pretty safe to say that leaving the house at 7.40 in the morning and not getting back until 7.30 at night has made it a little difficult to find the time for this blog. However, in my moments of rest, the ideas have been brewing, words have been dancing tantalisingly in my head and my pink lap top has been calling...and so I am determined to make time to get in at least one post a week, and to get back to doing what I love most: writing about fashion. In an attempt to spice things up a bit and motivate myself not to return to my blogging days of silence, I have given the blog a bit of a makeover, which I think is a little more fresh. Please let me know what you think :-) Anyway, that's enough rabbiting on about that, so here's a pretty picture to get things started, and then let's get on to the important stuff...

 MAC Barbie-themed ad campaign 

So. Having reflected recently on my love for sequins, metallics and all things that sparkle, I have come to the conclusion that I perhaps lean a little towards Barbie-like tendencies of dressing. Now, don’t get me wrong - you won’t catch me wearing a vomit pink Big Brother contestant-style outfit complete with an OTT spray tan any time soon, but lately, I’ve been rather inspired by this whole notion of ‘Vintage Barbie’. It was actually a fellow Lookbooker and blogger (the very stylish Zee F from http://zizziswardrobe.blogspot.com/">ZiZi's Secret Wardrobe who I am going to credit for coming up with the phrase. After Zee very kindly commented on a photo I'd put up of myself in a black sequin vintage shift dress, over-sized doll lashes and bright pink lips, pointing out that the look was rather 'vintage Barbie,' the term stuck with me and I realised just how much it sums up the kind of style that is giving me the fashion goosebumps right now.

As Barbie can be perceived as the very epitome of conventionality and even female objectification, it would seem odd that she is now a figure that I can draw inspiration from, given that her stereotypical, busty/blonde/skinny brand of beauty is one that the media constantly shoves down our throats, and which causes both women and men to aspire to a narrow-minded ideal of what it means to be beautiful. That said, there is simply something about Barbie and her mannequin-like perfection and overt 'girliness' that I belive can be used in an ironic sense to inspire, and to create something that is actually entirely fresh. Take Lily Allen in her ironic 'chav' get up, that she made her trademark when she first erupted onto the music scene, and which still inspires artists today like Gaga and Jessie J. Huge gold hoop earrings and thick ghetto-tastic chains fresh from the Argos catalogue may scream 'tacky' when teamed with a lurid-hued velour tracksuit or when adorning the lobes and neck of Vicky Pollard, but when taken and worn in the whimsical, fun, self-aware wat that Brits are so good at (in my opinion), it becomes something quite different indeed. Take Agyness Deyn, who arguably reinvented the whole 'bottle blonde' look, using her eccentric, urchin style to take it from page three glamour-model territory to the ultimate in quirky cool. You can't swing a beaten-up vintage satchel these days without knocking over sereval peroxide-blonde hipsters, who all manage to make the look contemporary with edgy hair styles, bold make up and nonchalantly thrown on faux-furs, battered leathers or studded denim jackets.  

Speaking of bleach-begotten hair colours, I am currently obsessed with the idea of bleaching my hair blonde and dying it a pale, pastel pink. It is simply a fear of ruining the condition of the hair I have been painstakingly growing and caring for for the last four years that stops me (plus the fact that my hair is dyed bright red, and naturally brown.) However, I have never been more inspired by Polly-Pocket shades of softly falling curls and tumbling waves, and I highly suspect that by 2012, I'll be welcoming in the new year by finally succumbing to the bleach bottle.   

Therefore, for all the above reasons, I am currently fascinated by the look of overtly girly, plastic-fantastic elements like bubble gum pink lips teamed with a vintage edginess that takes the look from WAG to cool. Think platinum blonde locks tied into a perky pony, teamed with luminous pale skin and the bedimmed glamour of a tarnished gold trophy jacket. If it’s inspiration you seek, look no further than blogger and Lookbooker Bonnie Strange from http://www.strangeambition.com/">Strange Ambition, whose stunning photography and crazy, sequin-spangled get-ups have me longing to raid her wardrobe and, well, just actually be her. Or, behold the dolly mixture-hued, glittery creations that are Miu Miu’s glitter boots. I kid you not when I say that never have I experienced shoe lust quite like this before. The pastel toned paillettes overlapping scale-like in Prada’s ad campaigns have got me feeling all mermaid Barbie, whilst the softly shimmering diamond-patterned knee-highs call to mind the teenage nostalgia of Clueless. That's not to mention the advert featuring a fresh-faced young model descending a staircase littered with cascades of candy-coloured glitter boots, which literally makes my heart flutter. So, it appears that irony is the key here folks; mixing up a bit of Malibu Barbie's unashamed girliness with a sprinkling of fun, tounge-in-cheek humour, 1980s vintage magic and all-out British eccentricity, Barbie can be allowed out of her dream house and let loose to wander the streets and catwalks ...                

And here are the pictures:

I personally think Patsy is a shining source of vintage Barbie inspiration

 Another of Bonnie's amazing pics- I want her blue hair so much!
Picture from an unknown source, but one which I think perfectly demonstrates the vintage Barbie look.



My own interpretation of 80s vintage Barbie (PS check out my new gold Toppers nail polish!)
Below are some of Prada's ad campaigns featuring the adored glitter boots, diamond socks and pailette-covered dresses, as well as a random blue hair picture I found and a lovely picture of girls laughing and carrying clothes and balloons. To me, it captures the unashamed girliness of Barbie and the nostalgia of female adolescence.  I would actually wear that picture on a T shirt.







          [La “Sociedad” conoce] “El precio de todo y el valor de nada”        
El precio de todo y el valor de nada

Por Sara Plaza

La sociedad con "S" mayúscula a la que se refería Oscar Wilde a finales del siglo XIX era la aristocracia londinense de la época victoriana. Un grupo al que el autor irlandés parodió en muchas de sus obras, destacando la impotencia del bien para lograr un final feliz entre los altos muros de su superficialidad. Una superficialidad que sigue manteniéndose más de un siglo después en otras muchas "clases altas" del mundo. Altas no por su estatura moral sino por las cifras astronómicas de sus cuentas bancarias y sus elevados niveles de corrupción e hipocresía.

Esa sociedad que para escucharse a sí misma necesita silenciar las voces disonantes, tiene muy poco que decir y mucho de lo que avergonzarse. Esa sociedad que sabe cuánto cuesta todo, se encarga de que una gran mayoría de personas piensen que no valen nada. Esa sociedad que se cree sus propias mentiras, habla de tener fe en la verdad. Esa sociedad que desprecia la memoria, es la que nos cuenta la historia. Esa sociedad que desprecia la vida de muchos, tiene un "plan" que "asegura" la suya. Esa sociedad que no se cocina pero gusta de la buena mesa, está desforestando los montes, envenenando los ríos, hiriendo de muerte enormes pedazos de tierra. Esa sociedad que se prodiga en dádivas miserables, se apropia de lo que no es suyo y se considera dueña de lo que nos pertenece a todos.

A esa sociedad en la que tienen cabida muy pocos se han opuesto muchos, pero el estruendoso avance de millones de pies descalzos, de millones de manos agrietadas, de millones de bocas hambrientas, de millones de miradas apagadas, de millones de sueños desterrados sigue sin derrumbar sus paredes ni hacer temblar demasiado sus cimientos. En algunos puntos quizá no sean tan fuertes como antaño pero su estructura sigue siendo ejemplo de eficacia arquitectónica. Su vigor tiene mucho que ver con el desencanto de quienes en su día vieron marchitarse muchos de sus proyectos y de quienes no encuentran hoy dónde plantar la simiente de los suyos.

Hace unas semanas, mientras Edgardo y yo visitábamos a mi familia en España, el bibliotecario que siempre va con él puso en mis manos uno de los tomos en los que mis padres han ido encuadernando todos los números de la revista "Bustarviejo" que editaba la Asociación Cultural "El Bustar" en mi pueblo, y lo abrió en la número 35–1 de febrero de 1980. En ella aparece una entrevista que el cura párroco de entonces les hacía a mis abuelos maternos. Yo no recordaba haberla leído a mis siete años, así es que fue todo un descubrimiento a mis treinta y cinco. El artículo se titula "Mariano y Jesusa. El sufrimiento de los pobres" y comienza con estas palabras de mi abuela: "Yo ya se lo he dicho a mi hija, yo lo único que le puedo decir a Antonio son penas, nada más que penas. Así que cuando venga lo único que le contaré son penas". Las finales las pronunció mi abuelo después de escuchar la pregunta de por qué ha abandonado la gente joven el campo: "El campo es lo más despreciado y tirado de todo. El trabajo es más duro, siempre mirando al cielo, a expensas de la lluvia, del clima. Ahí no hay permiso, ni vacaciones, ni pagas extras. Pocas veces el campo da recompensas. Por eso la gente joven, al tener posibilidad de otros trabajos, ha abandonado el campo, pero ha sido por obligación y por falta quizá de que las autoridades no hayan recompensado esto. El campesino tiene que vivir al mismo nivel que los demás. El medianero y el pobre han tenido que abandonar y no han tenido más que disgustos. El único que siempre saca es el terrateniente fuerte. El abandonar el campo no beneficia nada a la nación. El gobierno, en eso, no ha estado acertado. Ha dado de lado al agricultor y este siempre lleva el timón. Yo creo que hay muchos sindicatos y muchas cosas que se podrían reducir y atender más el campo y la ganadería". Inmediatamente después, el entrevistador llamaba la atención sobre las no pocas denuncias que van impresas en esa intervención de mi abuelo y no pude evitar sonreírme. Claro que hay denuncias entre sus palabras, y no dejaron de sorprenderme en una entrevista en la que mis abuelos recordaban algunas de las derrotas que sumaron a lo largo de su vida. También me sorprendió el buen humor que mostraron sus respuestas en un par de ocasiones pese a su sabor amargo general, y me dolió la aspereza con que mi abuelo habló del desencanto al que me referí antes. Yo sabía que él había elegido luchar en el bando republicano durante la Guerra Civil y que estuvo en un campo de concentración en Francia cuando terminó. Sabía también que nunca quiso hablar de ello y que una y otra vez les pidió a sus hijos que no se metiesen en política. Al ser preguntado sobre la misma durante la entrevista responde: "Yo me lavo las manos, me corté la coleta. Desde que estuve en Francia renuncié a la política".

Sin duda la guerra, la pobreza, la falta de trabajo, el tener que abandonar el lugar donde uno ha vivido porque dentro de sus fronteras está condenado a muerte o a morirse de hambre, ofrecen motivos más que suficientes para el desencanto, la desilusión y la decepción. Pero los herederos de quienes los experimentaron no deberíamos olvidar que esos son los nutrientes con los que se fortalece la superficialidad que envuelve a las minoritarias "clases altas" del mundo y con los que se revitaliza la injusticia que rodea a las muchísimo más numerosas "clases bajas". Esos son los elementos indispensables para que las primeras sigan poniendo precio a todo y para que las segundas no reconozcan su propio valor. Por ello, aunque sobren las razones para el desánimo, no tendrían que faltar las que nos impulsen a denunciar una y otra vez el origen y la causa del mismo, pues es en el terreno que conquistemos a la decepción donde germinará la semilla de nuestros proyectos, mientras que en el que fertilicemos con desencanto sólo aumentará la impotencia del bien para lograr un final feliz, tanto en la sociedad con "S" mayúscula como en el resto.

Hace ya algunos años que uno de mis maestros me animó a descubrir los escritos de Wilde y hace sólo unas semanas el culpable de este blog depositó entre los dedos de la cómplice un volumen en el que pude leer a mis abuelos. Al docente y al bibliotecario gracias por las páginas que me descubrieron; a sus respectivos autores gracias por escribirlas y pronunciarlas.

Nota: El título del artículo pertenece a palabras de Lord Darlington en Lady Windermere's fan del escritor irlandés Oscar Wilde.

          Huge iceberg breaks free from the Antarctica Larsen C ice shelf        

Larsen C is about 1100 feet thick and rests at the edge of West Antarctica, blocking the glaciers that feed into it. An iceberg the size of Delaware has broken free from an Antarctic ice shelf, leaving the rest of the shelf vulnerable to collapse and serving as a harbinger of future sea-level rise that could pose a serious threat to coastal communities such as the Falkland Islands.

Cuteness overload! The “Things that make you go hmm” hunt is underway and one of my most favourite stores Lunar Seasonal Designs is in it yay! I managed to find the gift by using the clue give (hunt blog below) and received this utterly charming patch of Lady’s mantle with a naughty leaping bunny. You can choose the colour of the blooms etc and also how frequently the bunny charges about – he leapssss and knocks over a bunch of flowers, then hides in the leaves – its dead sweet and only 5Li.

          I've made a huge mistake        


No really, I've made a huge tiny mistake. Any other Arrested Development fans out there?
Once I found out I made a mistake (and a stupid one at that) Mini Gob immediately sat down on the speaker next to the table, crossed his legs and laughed uncomfortably.
I buried my face in my hands. How did this happen?!
I say tiny because it's somewhat fixable.
A while ago (I can't remember when, if I could it might solve a few questions) I ordered white fabric. It wasn't Moda. It was Riley Blake, and I have no idea why I ordered it. And I don't remember how much.
I always buy Bella solids bleached white (which really isn't all that white. It's more yellow. Thanks Riley Blake).
I started my Snow Blossoms quilt with the Riley Blake white. I started my I Heart You quilt with the Bella bleached white.
I finished half the snow blossoms about a month ago, before we moved, and just the other day took out the rest of the fabric to cut. Yesterday I cut the white fabric, today sat down to piece everything together and to my horror realized I had cut the bleached white instead of the (snow I'm guessing) white.
I spent all morning going over my orders in the past year looking for some kind of white. It took me a while to remember it was Riley Blake and not another company. But I remember it being a part of some collection... Which is why I'm remembering snow. Maybe Santa's Workshop white? Why are there so many whites?! None of the orders had anything in them, and most of the shops I buy from, while they do have an account page, they don't have recent orders.
Why do I care so much- because I probably don't have enough white to finish the Snow Blossoms. What a quilter rookie I am. I'm so embarrassed.

I'll be buying some of Santa's workshop and hope it matches. If not... Well, half a quilt can still work :)

Now, let's have another bit of Gob to make me feel better!





          Home decor madness- Studio        
We're going to have a spare room in our new house for a studio.
Enough said. Let the fun begin!

Is that a chalkboard wall?! I'm still not sure I love that idea, maybe a small magnet section?

Via an-margritt

This looks more like what my space will look like. I think I'd like a soft board to pin up my quilt squares. There's something I just don't like about cork bulletin boards. The pegs are a great idea, but I'd never be able to keep everything neat and tidy. And I love love love the long clean table. Could I pull that off? Maybe if I stuff all my junk into those drawers.


Lotta Jansdotters studio. Hmmm...


My space could also go in this direction. Love the open shelf unit, and those scissors, WANT! 
I think a nice colorful rug would be great to add some fun into the room.

Like this rug. I would buy it in a second if it was up to me. Y would never go for it though, which is too bad, because it is awesome!
Via West Elm 

I'm still not sure if we're going to leave the walls white, or paint one a different color, or all a different color. I'm always afraid that I'll get sick of it. I know it's only paint, but there's something that feels final to me, like it's a waste to paint over.

There are many rooms I find inspirational, but I don't think they will be realistic, or useful for me. Like I said before, I'm a bit of a clutter bug, and if I have the room to clutter, it will get messy.
The picture below, from Art as Life, is to die for. I love the armoire, the armchair, but I would stuff those shelves like there's no tomorrow. The studio tour is lovely, and there are some great ideas that I can actually use, but the example below is a big no-no for me.


I'm happy to have a direction, and I think most of the furniture for the spare room will come from Ikea, but I don't think I have a problem with that.
I know it will take a while to get the studio together, and I hope all hell doesn't break loose before it does.
I'm excited to start decorating my own space, and already have Decorate Workshop book in my Amazon cart, all ready to be bought and shipped out. I know though that once you start buying decorating books there's no end, maybe that's why I'm still waiting!

Yup, been there. Designers, I know you've been there too!

Three words. Orla Kiely AW13.

Quentin Tarantino Death Count. I always though Pulp Fiction had a bit more deaths than that!

I'm not a Sphynx Cat lover, but what a cutie!

Tapestry Oxfords. Yay or Nay? I'm thinking Yay.

There are two kinds of people in the world, you, and everyone else ♥

          back in High School        
I keep having dreams I am still in high school. They have never stopped. Every once in a while I will dream I am back in school. Most times I look like I look now, and in fact it is as If I am the age I am today but it is as if I am taking some sort of classes and back in school, or maybe some classes for work, yet all my friends and classmates are there. And it is such a good feeling. High school for me will always be one of the best times of my life. It is as if when my mind can't deal with the stress, worries, bills, tasks, and problems of everyday life it takes advantage of my dreams and takes me back to simpler times. The dreams may sometimes be stressful, maybe I am taking a test, and I realize I did not even study for this, but then I sit down and see a familiar face, some classmate of mine and then I realize how lucky I am to be taking classes with all my old classmates and friends, and its just such a familiar feeling, like being HOME again.
Its so hard to explain sometimes, so many teenagers say high school is one of the worst times in their lives and my experience was so far from that. I went to a very small high school, and I mean small- my graduating class had less than 40 students. Because it was such a small school, we were all close, everyone knew every one's name. There was never anyone being stuffed into lockers (does that even happen in real life?), no ones glasses were ever broken, and no one was ever given a wedgie.  My memories are staying after school just to chat and goof around with friends, stuffing all our coats, books, umbrellas, in one tiny locker (there was about 8 of us) I never understood why we never though of using our own lockers? Going during lunch hour to Central Park to play on the swings, having class trips to the Museum of Natural History, the statue of liberty, Ellis Island and about every other museum and tourist spot you can think of. I remember passing notes to each other (cellphones weren't in back then), stuffing roses and love notes in notebooks from that short guy who just wouldn't leave you alone, walking and singing and playing in the rain all of us under one single umbrella, I remember just hanging in the hallways and stairways with about other twenty people and just laughing and laughing till your tears came out and your cheeks hurt.  Then there is the school trip at the end of the year. There wasn't enough money for some unknown reason (maybe the teachers went out partying ;) and we couldn't go to the Poconos for the weekend like every other senior class before us did. We were all pretty upset about that. But we were taken to Bear Mountain to spend the day. We played volleyball, we ate, we rode boats, and we ran and then it started pouring rain. And Harry said fuck it and started running in the pouring rain, and everyone joined and we laughed and played spin the bottle under the rain, and we splashed and jumped and by the end of the day our clothes and hair were soaking wet and it just didn't matter. 
Yeah now I know why I keep dreaming back in school, how could I not? High School was amazing. Every single person from my high school brings me good memories. And so my mind, every time I am stressed, keeps popping them up in random places, to help me deal with whatever I am dealing with, just a familiar face here and there to give me that homey feeling again....

          Look to see things in new ways,        
even if nothing has changed.

          Color lights Rainbow effect        
1.Open up picture of your choice.
2.If the picture of your choice is already in color skip the next step and go to step 4
3.Since this picture is in black and white change hue and lightness to convert it into a color picture. The picture will still remain black and white. The point of this step is to be able to add color lighting instead of black and white lighting in the next layer, otherwise the lights will remain grayish instead of colorful. 
4. Next, add new layer.
3. Go to gradient tool and I choose the first gradient and then "radial gradient"
4. On the layers section change the opacity of the layer. In here I chose to 16%
And tada your done.

And here it is with the Bokeh Effect (See next post for tutorial):

Wise words to live by...


          spring!        


          goodbye summer...        
I will regret it after I type this, but I am actually glad summer is over. Did I really just type that? Trust me, I do not like winter at all, I do not like layering tons of clothes, and I hate that I cannot run out in my shorts and slippers to say go to the market to get the missing sauce for my pasta. I'm the type of girl that loves taking walks in the parks, wearing light summer dresses, and getting out of the house just as I am dressed. However, this time, I am looking forward to changes and maybe a change in seasons will bring different scenes and outcomes. 


                  
Today we are moving to a temporary place and do you know the first thing I think when packing to a new place? Shower curtains! Such a small little detail you cannot forget, unless you want your bathroom floor to be a pool of water by the end of your shower.



          foggy days        
My blog is named "Inspiration Crush" because I wanted it for inspiration, but from the beginning I always stated it is for me to blog about anything I love, anything that inspires me, life in general, and my own life including my ups and downs.
These are my downs.
I hope you still stay.


          Dear Diary,        


          Dear Happiness,        
8968653_0ursml6j_c_largeTumblr_limliq7h1w1qb6t6wo1_500_large
would you stay here for a while? I have missed you so. And while you're here can you bring along relaxation with you? Thank you so much ^_^
I've had a few of those weeks where everything comes to perspective. Here I am planning this wedding, making sure every detail is perfect, and then something happens that makes you realize its not that important. Yes, I am getting married for the first time and hopefully the only time, but after this day the whole world will remain the same. My life may change, so will my fiancee's, and maybe our family members who will miss saying goodnight and seeing our grumpy faces in the breakfast table in the mornings, but about everything else will remain the same. There are so many things in this world, so many kids starving, so many people with no homes, so many illnesses, so many deaths. And sometimes, just sometimes, you think, "is this all worth it?" Spending so much money on one event when there are so many that don't even have enough for a meal, their medicine? My friend answered this with: "Yes, it is. This is your day. And there will always be people suffering wether you get married or not, whether you throw a party or not. A lot of people can't afford this, but if you can then why not? You are not spending millions on it like so many other do. As long as it's a reasonable budget like you want, then what's the big deal? You deserve this." Simple words, but yet it helped me so much. But one thing is for sure, my wedding is going to be simple. Tasteful, elegant but nothing grand. We have a budget for it and we are not planning to go over it. Because at the end of the day, yes this is our day, but I never want to have the feeling that it was too much. Just a day to have fun, dance, eat and share our happiness with those we love. And then one day, when I start working again, I can give a little something at least once a month to an organization that helps others. Because that is what will make me completely happy. Its something that has always been in the back of my mind, to someday give back, and I can't wait for that day that I can put that little money in that envelope and help bring a smile to someone's face. And for now, I am happy that when that day comes I will get to do it standing next to my other half ^_^


          I scream, you scream        
Tumblr_ll3r2wcvf41qdhu7co1_400_large
WE ALL SCREAM FOR BRIDESMAIDS!
haha yup! This is how excited I get everytime I get good news about my bridal party and guests. So heres the story.
I had first decided I wasn't going to have a lot of bridesmaids. I was going to do the official thing done in Quisqueya- which is to have the young/single girls as bridesmaids. And since I am the youngest from my generation this meant I would only have two younger cousins as my bridesmaids along with my little sister who is 18. My maid-of-honor is my oldest sister who is already married with kids. And of course my flowergirl will be Anabella. I wanted as many flowergirls as possible, always did, always will. However there are not many girls in the family that are young enough to be flowergirls yet old enough to do it, so I am only left with two. Nevertheless, let me tell you these are two of the prettiest, sweetest girls you will ever laid eyes on and this will be enough to get all the oohs and ahhs and maybe even some ooh-la-las, yep Anabella who just turned four and Ana Amelia who is 3 are just that adorable! Now, I had assumed my bridal party was complete and that all my friends were fine with this, especifically since one of my friends (who is older than me) had expressed she didn't want to be a bridesmaids AT ALL. As a matter of fact, before I had announced anything early in the days, she said she did not want to be a bridesmaids at all and to please not make her be one because she already felt too old to be one and she likes having the choice to choose whatever she wants to wear. I was fine with this and assumed my friends felt the same. How silly of me huh? It wasn't until my mother expressed some girls might still want to be bridesmaids that I thought "Oh My God what was I thinking?" To make the story short: I asked, they said yes, I went from three bridesmaids to nine! Yeap, thats right- Nine of my closest girls to be there with me, and I couldn't be happier. However, the problem now is that the seamstress who lives in Quisqueya will not have time to do all these dresses and I don't know what to do :/

          10 cosas que seguramente no sabías sobre Corea del Sur        

10 cosas que seguramente no sabías sobre Corea del Sur

Como dicen en Corea: annyeong-haseyo!
10 cosas que seguramente no sabías sobre Corea del Sur
Tras contar curiosidades sobre Japón, hoy toca el turno a Corea del Sur. No se quedan atrás en excentricidades interesantes. De nuevo, habrá cosas que todos saben ¿verdad?, como que hacen dramas casi tan famosos como el anime japonés, ya lograron arrebatar el primer puesto en el informe PISA sobre educación a Finlandia o que Samsung dentro del país no es meramente un productor de móviles y ordenadores sino toda una corporación que lo ha construido casi todo. Sin embargo, existen otras cosas como las de a continuación que espero no supieran.

Eres un año más viejo, a veces dos.

Los surcoreanos suelen sumar un año a la edad internacional. El concepto cultural proviene de China y no sólo sucede en Corea del Sur sino también en países influenciados como Corea del Norte, Vietnam o Japón. Lo que ocurre es que los otros países asiáticos han aceptado la internacionalización de la edad y prácticamente ya no usan esta costumbre, sin embargo, en Corea del Sur lo normal es utilizar la edad coreana cuando te preguntan.
En cuanto a por qué hay que sumarse uno es simplemente porque se cree que ya naces con un año, no con cero. Pero añadido a esto, además, los coreanos no cumplen años sólo cuando nacieron sino cada «ib chun» o periodo solar, así que cumples dos veces. Por tanto, dependiendo del mes, es posible que entre un periodo solar y otro tengas hasta dos años más. Si una persona ha nacido a principios de año, la diferencia de un año será la habitual. En cambio, si una persona nació a finales, pasará muchos meses añadiendo dos años a su edad internacional.

No hay desodorante

El chico deprimido se llama Le Ming Ho.
El chico deprimido se llama Le Ming Ho.
Es una cosa que incluso suelen añadirte en la guía de viajes cuando compras un vuelo a Corea: deberías traer tu desodorante porque es muy difícil encontrarlo. Esto es porque los coreanos sudan pero no huelen.
El olor corporal se debe a una mezcla de compuestos orgánicos volátiles. Las investigaciones sobre este tema comenzaron en la década de los sesenta, descubriendo que el olor axilar era producido por la interacción de secreciones apocrinas con los microorganismos cutáneos de las axilas. Y en 2009, un equipo de investigación descubrió que casi toda la etnia asiática tiene una mutación genética que detiene la producción de los compuestos del sudor apocrino que causan el mal olor. Por eso, las personas en China y Corea no usan mucho los desodorantes y tan claro como el agua, como no se vende, no hay.

Si tienes un problema físico, se espera que lo soluciones.

After and before.
After and before.
Hay cirugías de todo, absolutamente de todo, cosas como la reducción de volumen craneal es posible. Resulta que son tan increíbles los cambios que, tras someterse a una operación, les obligan a actualizar su tarjeta de identificación porque normalmente no se les puede reconocer después.
También está el punto de que operarse no es raro. Cuando digo que no es raro es que adolescentes piden la cirugía de doble párpado como premio por graduarse en la preparatoria. De hecho, lo deleznable es que no lo soluciones. Si tienes una nariz aguileña, te pueden preguntar en una entrevista laboral porqué no te la has quitado esperando que tengas una razón de «verdadero peso» para no haberlo hecho. Corea tiene una sociedad muy superficial, que valora en demasía el aspecto físico y no poseerlo es todo un problema para cualquier empleo de cierto nivel.

Si se mueve, se come.

Corea tiene comidas muy extrañas, más o menos siguiendo la línea de toda Asia. Déjenme decir primero que hay algunas comidas «tradicionales» que un capitalino no habrá probado jamás y que les dan tanto asco como a nosotros, pero existen los que las comen y restaurantes que las sirven, por lo cual, no está de más contarlo. Podemos empezar por la famosa sopa de perro. Sí, tradicionalmente se comía el perro. Pero hay cosas peores como un vino con fetos de rata dentro, el «gaebul» que es una lombriz de mar abierta por la mitad, «gusanos-pene» en salsa —se llaman así— que se comen crudos con salsa de sésamo o el «beondegi» que son larvas de gusano de seda al vapor. Nunca os haría la canallada de poner fotos de todo ello y tampoco os puedo comentar a qué saben porque tengo mis límites en cuando a probar cosas nuevas.

Los más alcoholizados del mundo

soju
Según datos de la OMS, es efectivamente el país que más alcohol consume. De hecho, su bebida nacional, el soju, es el alcohol más vendido del mundo y quizás la única bebida alcohólica coreana conocida fuera de las fronteras (aunque hay muchas más). Está hecha a partir de licor de arroz pero no sabe a arroz, se toma en vasos pequeños como los de chupito y las botellas tienen un precio muy económico. En cuanto a su «potencia», tiene alta graduación —entre los 15º-25º el malo, el caro puede tener más— y se toma solo. Su sabor es tan fuerte como el de alcohol de curar heridas y quema bajando, pero las ajummas (abuelas mayores) lo bajan como si nada.
Estarás pensando, bien, me abstendré de probarlo. Difícil. Ni se te ocurra rechazar si te ofrecen una bebida alcohólica, lo interpretarán como un gesto de descortesía, sobre todo si quien te lo ha ofrecido es alguien de mayor edad que tú. De hecho, los jefes tienen la costumbre de emborrachar a sus subordinados al salir de la empresa. Beber en Corea del Sur está bien visto, en reuniones, en negocios, en fiestas, en encuentros... incluso existe la creencia de que beber alcohol adelgaza.

Los coreanos conducen bastante mal

KIA es la marca de coches más vendida y en su mayoría los coreanos prefieren coches automáticos. Y a pesar de que los automáticos son más fáciles de conducir y los máximos de velocidad en Corea son bastante bajos, hay muchos accidentes. Según la OMS, Corea del Sur es el segundo país con mayor número de muertes de tráfico.

Cosmética para todos.

Bajo la misma idea perfeccionadora de las cirugías, hay una industria cosmética que lo invade todo. Los idols —cantantes y actores famosos— promocionan productos en todas partes, desde espaldares de asientos en el metro a paneles iluminados tamaño edificio. La cosmética suele intentan tener una base natural en la línea conceptual de ser «comida para la piel» y se vende tanto para hombres como para mujeres.
corea
Los hombres en corea consumen tanta cosmética como las mujeres, se ponen «bb creams» para el día a día —maquillaje con tratamiento de cobertura baja— polvos, usan serums y tónicos, se tiñen, se hacen la cera integral en las piernas y pecho, no salen a la calle sin protector 50 y ver un coreano con pelo en la cara es tan raro como ver pasar el cometa Halley.
Se consumen productos con ácido hialurónico, vitamina C, salicílicos, proteínas de arroz y leche, caviar, tierras volcánicas mineralizadas… y en definitiva, todo lo que por su composición «aclare y terse» la piel. A los coreanos no les gusta el moreno, odian las manchas y a los 20 pocos, ya están preocupados por las arrugas. Como consecuencia o en base a esto, inventaron el cuidado facial en capas, en el que se usan al menos diez productos diferentes que hay que utilizar en un orden específico, según ingredientes y textura, uno detrás de otro post absorción para alimentar la piel a la par que «protegerla del exterior». Y los hombres lo hacen también.

Corazón

korean-fingers-heart
¿Cómo haces el símbolo del corazón? Si eres occidental seguramente juntarás los pulgares y los índices haciendo la forma. Los coreanos no hacen los corazones así sino juntando índice y pulgar de la misma mano, lo que para nosotros significa «dinero» o «¿cuánto cuesta?».

El K-pop

Estos concretamente se llaman Super Junior.
Estos concretamente se llaman Super Junior.
¿Se acuerdan del Gangnam Style? Pues no fue una casualidad. La industria cultural de Corea del Sur lleva más de veinte años potenciando y haciendo globales sus producciones. El K-pop es nombre que recibe su estilo de música, integrado por varios géneros musicales como el dance pop, la balada pop, la música electrónica, el rock, la música hip hop y el R&B. Se caracteriza por tener elementos audiovisuales integrados en el directo como coreografías, fuegos artificiales en escena, caracterización y/o interpretación, una perfección técnica en la coordinación grupal de baile, aprovechan en muchos casos a explotar la estética cute, usan excéntricos peinados y/o maquillaje llamativo. No se puede decir que las letras tengan en su mayoría un gran repertorio o sean muy profundas pero reconozcámoslo, sus Justin Bieber lo hacen mejor porque por lo menos no paran quietos y vienen en packs.

Los 100 días.

En Corea las «Sogaeting» o citas a ciegas son muy normales y se habla de ellas públicamente. La verdad es que para los coreanos suele ser difícil conocer gente nueva por su introversión y a la vez es casi un delito llegar a los treinta y estar solo. La familia insiste mucho en esto y a veces es la madre la que le presenta al hijo chicas, también puede ocurrir por medio de la hermana o las amigas de la novia de un amigo. Vamos, trapicheo de contactos. Cuando las parejas empiezan a salir cuentan los días y existe una celebración a los 100 en la que la chica le hace bombones caseros (en San Valentín también los hacen).
También decir que si te parece duro estar solo y ver parejas por la calle en occidente, allá es mucho peor. Puedes ver cosas como camisetas de parejas en conjunto, bufandas para dos o guantes dobles para tomarse de la mano sin separarse. En resumen, no es un buen sitio para estar soltero.

           Bulgarian road signs get a witty makeover         
The unknown creative, who goes by the name of idavidci on Tumblr, has enhanced Bulgaria's roadsides icons with his own creative touch.
          Australia's Misunderstood Sweetheart?        

Australian's have a love/hate relationship with Lara Bingle.  Correction.  Fashionistas love Lara, many others don't get it. 

Unafraid to take a style risk, when this Fashion-Week-darling gets it right, she gets it 'oh so right' and the rest of us follow.   We've watched her evolve from that sunny Bondi Beach babe into a fearless trendsetter within a matter of years.




Whether it's a singular Sarina Suriano diamante ear cuff, a Dior hairnet or a Balenciaga Halo, she's ahead of her time in the Aussie fashion stakes, often drawing inspiration from what's happening in Paris RIGHT NOW.  If Lara debuts the look, chances are, the masses will follow, and several imitations will pop up in chain stores within a matter of weeks.






In 2012, Channel 10's fly-on-the-wall reality show 'Being Lara Bingle' was trashed by the critics but adored by Aussie girls, stalking her looks week after week, with many emulating her outfits within days of screening.  Yet we saw a side to Lara that showed more than being just a coat-hanger for designer looks.  We grew to know a refreshingly imperfect girl, thrust into the spotlight, suffering regret about her ex, struggling with her weight, throwing hissy fits, marvelling at her fame on occasion and resenting it all in the same day.  A candid take on a tabloid favourite, it was a delight to watch.

As a misunderstood front-row regular, she's worked hard to gain the respect of the average Australian and throughout much scandal, has held her head high, often using the opportunity as a chance to showcase her latest favourite look-of-the-moment.  A Fashion PR dream or happy accident?  One can only speculate.

          mp3: Hits Incorporated "Stranger"        
I Know That Yr Man...


Saccharine pop of the highest fidelity seems to be the agenda of Hits Incorporated, a silky smooth ensemble birthed from the infamous Cats Purring collective's Dude Ranch in the heart of Mississippi. Soft pads gel with lite FM drum machines while Dent May harmonizes, so, if you were wondering, it's ill.

"Stranger/ Do you want to/ Take my Number/ And call me, call me, call me, call me"

Hits INC remind me of that band The Future Sound of London, in name only. Ya know, like, not to jump to conclusions, but this might be The Future Sound of America. Bold statement, but willing to take that bet.

Hits Incorporated - "Stranger" by Cats Purring

Also, be sure to jam the screwed version of Dent Sweat's "More than a Friend, Less Than A Lover." Penultimate slo-jam of the moment for moi.

          5 Ways To Use Social Media To Launch A Book        

-Have a Book Cover Designing Contest
Although it hasn't been used too often, this technique can go a long way in generating interest around your book, and chances are, you'll probably be able to get yourself a variety of book cover designs to choose from.

Everybody loves a good contest, and it's one of the best ways to capitalize on the ‘viral’ factor of social networks. Just set the ball rolling by convincing some of your friends to put the details up as their status or tweet about it, and watch the ripple effect take place. Make sure your contest page has some details about the book - putting up a couple of extracts from the book will help you gather more interest around the book.

-Lure the movers and shakers
The first step in this technique involves finding the so called ‘movers and shakers‘ in your genre of books i.e. the bloggers and reviewers who have large fan followings. Once you have identified them, try getting them to review your book or even just tweet about it - you could offer them a few free copies or send them the first chapter and ask if they'd like to see the rest. However, if you do follow this technique please remember there's a fine line between 'luring' and ‘spamming - make sure you don't cross it.

-Don't be afraid to promote yourself
Blog, promote, use Zinzz for share, advertise yourself... do whatever it takes to get yourself heard. Don't be afraid of coming across as annoying or narcissistic. If you genuinely believe your book has what it takes, then you shouldn't be afraid to let that fact be known. Having a tumblr or vlog is a great way to promote yourself and your book.

Another great idea is to just tweet and blog about stuff that interests you - if you create a famous internet persona for yourself, people will automatically read your book.

-Release extracts
Imagine this - an extract from your book flying around Twitter and Facebook, being commented on, shared, and debated. It's one of the easiest ways to generate excitement around your book because it requires almost no effort on your part except for selecting the right extract from your book. Ensure that the extract is posted online in such a manner that it lends itself to sharing - this is one place where those annoying share buttons linked to multiple social networks is essential.

-Make sure purchasing online for your customers is easy
This is absolutely essential if you really want to leverage the power of a social network. Imagine this situation - someone reads an extract from your novel on Facebook, decides they want to buy it, looks on all the online stores doesn't find it, makes a mental note to buy the book the next time he sees a bookstore, and never thinks of the books again.

To really use social networks to your advantage, you must ensure that your book is available for those who want to buy it on an impulse - otherwise there's a large chance they'll just forget about it. Ideally this would mean that your book can be purchased in both paperback hardcover and eBook format online, and is available at all the major online retailers.

          Scuttle and the Posterior Tibial Artery        
Who doesn't love The Little Mermaid?! I used to sing "Part of Your World" over and over again, pretend Lisa's dog was Max, and prayed for a beach vacation so I could impersonate Ariel for a week. Now, as I think back on all the memories, I realize the characters had given me some great tips and reminders over the years:
  1. true friends will always be there, no matter what
  2. don't be afraid to follow your dreams; persistence will pay off
  3. actions speak way louder than words 
  4. pulses can be found on the chest, neck, wrists, inside of the elbows, behind the knees, and by the ankles


    I think julieyumi summarized it perfectly:
    Ah, the Little Mermaid! â™¥
    I used to think it was pretty funny that Scuttle tried to listen to Prince Eric’s foot for signs of life, but he wasn’t so far off.  He has his thumb-feather placed exactly where he should be able to feel a pulse! The artery that’s located there is called the posterior tibial artery and it runs just underneath the ankle bone on the big-toe side of the foot (a.k.a., the medial malleolus). Try place your index and middle fingers there on your own foot and feel it!

    Throwback to Anatomy and cadaver lab: Tom, Dick, and Harry.
    The acronym used to remember the order of the artery, nerve, and three tendons of the the lower leg. 
    ―Tibialis posterior, flexor digitorum longus, posterior tibial artery, tibial nerve, flexor hallicus longus

    Anyway. The Little Mermaid is coming back to theaters September 2013 in 3D and I can't wait! Bet I won't be the only 30ish year old singing along with Ariel.

              Happy Earth Day        
    Lately, I've been thinking about all the places I've visited... and realized I've seen a lot more than I previously thought. I've never been outside of the country, but I've traveled all over the southern US and a small part of the NE and MidWest. That'll change one day... because I've got way too much more to explore. For Earth day last year, I posted pictures of nature that I loved. This year, I'm sharing some of the most memorable locations I've been to.

    via road trip... always
    Joshua Tree National Park - trees, rocks, and so many jackrabbits
    Grand Canyon - I would've loved more time here; at least a week!
    beautiful, endless sunflower fields in OK
    Appalachian Trail in NC (with my dad) - I love this memory
    Cumberland Island in southern GA - so much colorful wildlife
    Redwood Forest in northern CA - just... awestruck

    I've also seen Alabama's natural bridge, the hilly Smokey Mountains, Laguna Beach's incredible landscapes, a group of migrating manatees in Blue Springs, FL, the corridors of Carlsbad Caverns, and have ridden horseback through the Blue Ridge Mountains. Earth, you are wonderful! Can't wait to see more of you.

    Birthday: February 22, 1990
    From: Philippines

    Meljohn or MJ, one of the Magno twins, definitely deserves the right to be in Viva’s newest boy group, XLR8.

    At a very young age of 16, MJ loves singing and performing in front of many people. Together with his twin MM, they usually perform in special family occasions to the amazement of their relatives and later on would take voice lessons to improve their craft.

    His looks can be widely associated with Korean manner but this 19 year old hottie loves exhibiting his own style. As a matter of fact, aside from playing numerous musical instruments like drums, organ and guitars, we can consider him an ace in composing new songs.

    He has appeared in GMA shows like Sis, Walang Tulugan and All-Star K. Watch him rock the stage with the boys as he knows how to give the best shot for this opportunity and he knows how to make good use of it.

              Re: The Why of Where I Write         

    When I first started blogging properly (I'd had other sites that were updated regularly but I wasn't really aware of blogging per se) it was on self-hosted SharePoint on a server at home.

    I did outsourced support for Microsoft in the UK for a few years so was really into MS technology for a while.

    I had to make a lot of modifications myself to make it passable. This meant I got to speak to a couple of Softies working on the SharePoint team but even after they introduced the blogging templates progress was still too slow for it to be considered viable as a public facing blogging platform once social integration became important.

    There were a number of other shortcomings such as permalinks that changed based on how you accessed a given post so I felt it was time to move.

    My wife had already been working with WordPress for a while so the decision to switch over was obvious, it also coincided with a total rebranding when I decided to shift my blogging focus from general tech (90% MS based) to social.

    I've tried other platforms and have been looking for something more minimal. I'd considered applying to Svbtle, looked at Tumblr, even had a Posterous blog for a while and posted an item at Medium but writing at outposts rather than the home blog felt wrong.

    I had looked at Blogger but always felt that it was a bit basic and limited when compared to WordPress. The recent development of Blogger has actually interested me and, as I have been heavily invested in Google+ since it first opened in beta, I have gone on record as saying that if Blogger received FULL G+ integration (by which I mean cross-posting between the two platforms rather than just shared comments and blogging support from within the network itself) then I would switch again.


              What We're Up To...        

    I woke up this morning thinking that it was going to be a normal, routine day.

    But lucky for me, it turned out to be the day that this...

    would become this...

    Isn't she a beauty?

    Way back in March of last year, Ali from Little Bits Of Bliss posted pictures from her ugly-table-turned-farmhouse-table project, and for me...

    it was love at first sight!


    I immediately posted it to my Tumblr and kept it in the back of my mind waiting for the perfect moment to propose the table makeover to Will.

    Luckily, he was totally game and on board with the idea!
    (I needed him to build the top for me.)

    We bought our kitchen table back in March of 1999, the same year that we got married. It has stood up to 5 moves and 3 kids (and all that they can dish out) over the past 12 years, so it only seems right that she gets a makeover.

    She's definitely earned it!



    Off came the top...

    Then a quick sponge bath with TSP to remove all of the grease and grime
    (thank you, children)...


    Then bye-bye blue, hello crisp, clean white.

    I used the same paint that the Board and Batten is painted in, which is the same as all of the trim throughout our house. I wanted the legs to be white anyway, but most of all, I wanted to use what I already had and I have plenty of this sitting around...

    I still need to put on a second (maybe even a third) coat of paint, but with the top off, it's such an easy job...

    The new farmhouse table top is currently out in the garage where it's all clamped up and the glue is drying...

    Tomorrow we will put on a coat or two of stain, some poly to seal it up, and then once that is dry we can bring it in the house.

    I cannot wait to see our "new" table!


    So that's project #1 for 2011.

    So far, so good!





              Signing Off Until The New Year...        
    (This is one of my favorite Christmas photos - found via Tumblr)


    Our house is filled with the sounds of Christmas music, little voices, laughter, its fair share of chaos and arguing (from those same little voices), and through it all, I hear happiness and love.

    My kids are on Winter Break, my heart is full, and Christmas is almost here.

    These days, at any given moment, our home looks like this...

    ...the coffee table pushed up against the couch to make room for sleeping bags and pillows, three kids and a dog in full rest-and-relaxation mode, and an assortment of toys, remote controls and princess dresses scattered around the floor.

    On a daily basis we mix and sift and crack eggs and measure spices, and make a big, huge mess in the kitchen. While the cookies bake and I clean up (in preparation for the next batch), the kids take a break, and Classic Christmas movies play on the television. I can't help but think that these days, and these memories that we're making, are the kind that my kids will reminisce about when they are older. The same way that days just like these became my memories when I was little...


    I want nothing more than to remember these moments with them, for the rest of my life.

    I am so thankful that I get to call these little ones mine.
    And so very thankful for their Daddy
    .


    We've spent hours and hours in the kitchen creating all kinds of Christmas treats...


    Our annual Gingerbread House decorating has taken place and the kids are quite proud of their work. We gave them carte blanche - the gingerbread house was theirs to become whatever their little 9, 7 and 4 year old hearts desired...



    Our family's holiday festivities begin the morning of Christmas Eve and carry through into the following week. It will be a busy, fun-filled stretch of days that are going to fly by...

    The goal this year: to be fully present and enjoy the moments as they happen.

    After all, these kids of ours are growing up way too fast.

    And they're only little for so long.


    Which leads me to this - a post from Clover Lane called:

    Just A Reminder: Don't Miss The Sparkly Eyes

    I'm going to make sure that I don't miss any of it.



    And if you haven't seen this, it is definitely worth reading:

    My Heart Grew Three Sizes And Now I Have An Enlarged Heart. WORTH IT.

    from The Bloggess

    An incredible act of kindness that resulted in strangers helping strangers.

    All I can say is, the tears were flowing! And that people are good.


    ...............................................................



    This holiday season,

    from our home to yours,


    we wish you a very Merry Christmas


    and a Happy New Year!



    ~ See you in 2011 ~

    It was at a health-type place with a bunch of thin, muscular women complaining about how fat they were.  Ladies, you are too rough on yourselves.

              Comment on Breaking News: Black Character Actually Played by Black Actor This Time! by hotairgenerator        
    Yep exactly, whitewashing at its best! It's also being said that, in fact, Katniss was supposed to be a POC -- as she's described with tanned skin and straight black hair which is the same description given to another character who was observed by Katniss to be able to fit into the Seam which is made up almost entirely of POC. There's an excellent tumblr blog that talks about whitewashing in Hunger Games a lot and lays out that argument a lot better than I just did. It's also just generally awesome at looking at whitewashing in hollywood. http://racebending.tumblr.com/

              ÎœÎ­Ï‡ÏÎ¹ εδώ ήτανε        



    Ο πρωθυπουργός στο συνέδριο του Economist έδωσε, νομίζω, ένα σαφές στίγμα. Διαπραγματευόμαστε, κάνουμε πίσω, έχουμε ήδη οπισθοχωρήσει σε βασικές μας θέσεις, όμως μέχρι εδώ ήτανε. Δεν μπορούμε να γίνουμε ούτε ΓΑΠ ούτε Σαμαροβενιζέλοι. Και ο Γιάνης Βαρουφάκης με τις αναφορές του στο Κούγκι, έθεσε ένα ερώτημα ουσιώδες: "Δηλαδή, ο Σαμουήλ δεν έπρεπε να ανατινάξει το Κούγκι;. Είναι κακή αυτή η αφήγηση αυταπάρνησης για την πατρίδα μας;"

    Τολμάμε να το απαντήσουμε αυτό; Εδώ είναι τα ζόρια. Ποιους μνημονεύουμε σήμερα και τους θεωρούμε «ωραίους σαν Έλληνες» ; Εκείνους που τα κάνανε πλακάκια με τους Γερμανούς και θεωρούσαν παραλογισμό να αντισταθείς σε μια παντοδύναμη πολεμική μηχανή, ή τους άλλους, αυτούς που πολεμήσανε τα κατοχικά στρατεύματα και αγωνιστήκανε για την αντίσταση; Η καλή κοινωνία βέβαια και τότε, όπως και τώρα, βολευότανε με τους Γερμανούς εδώ, δεν τραβούσε και μεγάλα ζόρια. Και όχι μόνο εδώ – και την Γαλλία. Ποιος έγραψε ιστορία; Ο Φιλίπ Πεταίν που διορίστηκε επικεφαλής της κατοχικής κυβέρνησης με έδρα το Βισύ, και συνεργάστηκε με τους Γερμανούς σε όλη τη διάρκεια της κατοχής, η ο στρατάρχης Ντε Γκώλ που χάρισε στην Γαλλία μιαν ένδοξη και against all odds νίκη που επιβραβεύτηκε και όταν κλήθηκε στην Γιάλτα από τους τρείς νικητές του πολέμου, Τσώρτσιλ, Ρούζβελτ, Στάλιν και από την καταγραφή του ονόματός του με χρυσά γράμματα στην μεταπολεμική ιστορία και την επανεκκίνηση της Γαλλίας;

    Κακά τα ψέματα – και τα δικά σου δικά μου και τα δικά μου δικά μου δεν γίνεται. Αυτή η κυβέρνηση έχει εξαντλήσει κάθε όριο υπομονής και θετικής διάθεσης για συνεργασία και «αμοιβαία επωφελή λύση» σε βαθμό να έχει πια πρόβλημα με τα κόμματα που την στηρίζουν –τον ΣΥΡΙΖΑ αλλά και τους ΑΝΕΛ. Με όλους τους τρόπους έχει δείξει ότι θέλει να «τα βρούμε», ότι θέλει να παραμείνει στην ζώνη του ευρώ, ότι θεωρεί την Ευρώπη σπίτι της, οικογένειά της, ότι υπάρχει στο DNA της. Η άλλη πλευρά όμως όσο βλέπει ότι κάνουμε ένα βήμα πίσω, βγάζει απ’ το συρτάρι και άλλες απαιτήσεις, και άλλα παράλογα αιτήματα. Τις τελευταίες λίγες εβδομάδες έχει αρχίσει να γίνεται φανερό πως θέλει οπωσδήποτε να εξωθήσει την νέα Ελληνική κυβέρνηση σε ένα πλήρες αδιέξοδο, νομίζοντας πως έτσι η Ελλάδα (με τους Πεταίν της) θα αναγκαστεί να κάνει πίσω, να φτωχοποιήσει ακόμα μερικές εκατοντάδες χιλιάδες Έλληνες, να δεχθεί την από κάθε άποψη υποτίμησή της – για να πάρει την δόση της και να εξασφαλίσει άλλον έναν μήνα, ένα 15νθήμερο στην ευρωζώνη και αυτό το ρημάδι το Ευρώ που έγινε πιά ύψιστη αξία και «ιδανικό» για χάρη του οποίου όλα και όλοι πρέπει να θυσιαστούν – και να πεθάνουν και να αυτοκτονήσουν και να τρελαθούν.

    Ο Στέλιος Κούλογλου, Ευρωβουλευτής του ΣΥΡΙΖΑ, ÏƒÏ‡Î¿Î»Î¹Î¬Î¶Î¿Î½Ï„ας το «Ποτάμι» αναρωτιέται σε άρθρο του στο tvxs.gr: «Εκτός πια και αν τραυλίζουμε ακόμη και όταν χρειάζεται να υπερασπίσουμε την ιστορία και τα δίκαια μας. Παράλυτοι από τον φόβο, εκλιπαρώντας τον Αγά Σόιμπλε να μας λυπηθεί. Ή να μας σφάξει για να αγιάσουμε.» Και ο Αλέξης Τσίπρας την Παρασκευή στο συνέδριο του Economist, ξεκαθαρίζει ότι είμαστε έτοιμοι να υπογράψουμε άμεσα υπό τις εξής προϋποθέσεις:

    -χαμηλά πρωτογενή πλεονάσματα τουλάχιστον για τα δύο πρώτα χρόνια,
    -να μην έχουμε υποχρεώσεις για νέες περικοπές. Καμία νέα περικοπή σε μισθούς και συντάξεις,
    -αναδιάρθρωση του χρέους
    -ένα ισχυρό πρόγραμμα δημόσιων επενδύσεων

    Και, συγχρόνως, «κατέστησε σαφές ότι οι προτεινόμενες από τους θεσμούς αλλαγές, δεν μπορούν να γίνουν αποδεκτές.»

    Τι σημαίνουν όλα αυτά; Πολύ απλά πως τελικά ΔΕΝ τα βρίσκουμε – άρα βρισκόμαστε ήδη μπροστά σε μια νέα κατάσταση που δεν ξέρουμε πώς θα διαμορφωθεί και είμαστε έτοιμοι για την ρήξη –που ποτέ μας δεν θελήσαμε.

    Ένα είναι το σίγουρο. Κάναμε πίσω σε βαθμό παρεξηγήσιμο. Δεν έχει άλλο «πίσω».

    Μέχρι εδώ ήτανε.

              MÚSICA: Adele Laurie Blue Adkins        
    Olá amores!
    Vou falar um pouco de uma cantora que eu amooooo.......
       Adele Laurie Blue Adkins, nascida em 5 de maio de 1988, Londres - Inglaterra. O que dizer de uma mulher que possui uma das vozes mais lindas que eu já ouvi. Suas composições que falam de amores e desamores com um toque de soul e jazz, deixam qualquer um apaixonado.
       Adele é sinônimo de sucesso, com apenas 23 anos, ela ganhou dois Grammy Awards de "Artista Revelação" e "Melhor Vocal Pop Feminino" (2009) e este ano, a Official Charts Company anunciou que Adele é a primeira artista a alcançar, ainda viva, uma canção e um álbum como número um ao mesmo tempo na Inglaterra desde Os Beatles em 1964.

        Desde a sua estreia, o álbum 19 de Adele foi aclamado pela crítica e foi um sucesso em vendas. Adele lançou seu segundo álbum 21 em 24 de janeiro de 2011 na Inglaterra e em 22 de fevereiro nos Estados Unidos. O álbum foi um sucesso comercial e com a crítica, vendendo 208 mil cópias na primeira semana de vendas no Reino Unido estreando em primeiro lugar na UK Albums Chart e também liderou as paradas de vendas em vários países. O CD também estreou muito bem nos Estados Unidos alcançando a primeira posição na Billboard 200 vendendo 352 mil cópias na primeira semana.

       Quem nunca ouviu "Someone Like You" e não sentiu vontade de chorar, beijar, amar, sonhar....... que atire a primeira pedra! (rs) E "Rolling In The Deep", a vontade que dá é de pegar uma estrada, sair dirigindo e cantando! E eu quero matar o cara que a fez tão triste em "Don't You Remember"! - Essa sim dá uma mega vontade de chorar! (e de namorar muuuuito também! rs). "Set Fire To The Rain" é linda, quando ela canta o refrão (But I set fire to the rain, Watched it pour as I touched your face, Well, it burned while I cried, Cause I heard it screaming out your name, your name!) me sinto mais forte, parece que nada pode me deixar triste.

    Bom, todas as músicas são lindas, todas muito bem escritas e musicadas.

              Apple iOS 7        

    When earlier in September when Apple launched its biggest update to its mobile operating system iOS, there has been mixed reaction initially. But lately it seems like Apple will be having hard time receiving the bug and fixing it, because there are just a lot of them. From small good features to pretty big frustrating problems, the iOS 7 has it all. Well, we'll be looking into deep in iOS 7 - the good and the bad.


    Starting from the good features ->

    1. Clock icon

    Yes, you heard that. A clock working at the top of the scree. Take a look.

    2. Text Time-stamps

    Also new, if you'll slide texts you can see time-stamps for all of them.

    3. The Level

    Just open up your compass app and slide your fingers across it, and congratulations because you just unraveled a new feature. So now, say goodbye to those tilted paintings.

    4.Night mode for maps

    When you are driving late, your bright apple screen can very blinding and cause you many problems. In this, the screen appears dark at certain times to prevent that problem.This is less distracting and easier on the eyes when navigating at night.

    5. Closing multiple apps at once.

    Yes, you can close multiple apps at once.Here's how: double click the home button to reveal open webpages and platforms.You can then swipe up to three apps at once by using three fingers and dragging them upwards.

    6. Block calls

    Well, if you are getting annoying calls you have now the liberty to just block them. Visit Settings > Phone > Blocked to add numbers you want to restrict.

    7. Apps near me

    Now this is an interesting feature. When you visit the Apple app store, you'll se something like "near me" at the bottom. This is region specific apps. It means if you are, suppose, in Manhattan then it will show you those apps which are downloaded most on that region.

    OK, now coming to the bad features ->

    Well it certainly looks like they'll never ending reporting. But getting familiar with very common drawbacks in iOS 7.

    1. Security Glitches

    It was the problem at the starting, but now fixed by Apple. iOS 7 security flaw allowed for the circumvention of a device's lockscreen,as reported CNET . From a locked phone or iPad, swiping up to access the alarm clock app and following a couple extra steps brought up the iOS 7 multitasking screen where you could access the camera app or photo gallery. This opened a clear path to Twitter, email and other accounts. Apple replied quickly to this vulnerability by releasing an iOS 7.0.2 update late last week, fixing the bug.

    2. Unwanted Logouts

    One problem that’s vexed iOS 7 users and developers alike is a glitch that logs users out of some apps, according to The Verge , prompting a sign-in screen each time an app with a unique account is accessed. Popular iOS email app Mailbox was “in crisis mode” shortly after the release of iOS 7, attempting to fix the software conflict as users grew agitated. According to Mailbox, the only solution, though a temporary one, is to disable iOS 7’s new background refresh feature, though this removes the app’s ability to receive updated information while in the background. This issue remains unaddressed.

    3. Battery life

    It has been reported highly by many users that this update just drains out the juice of your device very quickly. iOS 7 is more like iOS 7% left of battery.As reported by PC Magazine , the difference in power consumption is often hard to quantify, seeing as each user uses his or her phone differently and with unique configurations, though it is worth mentioning that Apple did address a similar battery drain claim with a patch to its iOS 5 software. In the meantime, some sites have compiled best practices lists  to aid users in conserving battery life, suggesting things like turning off background app updates and disabling AirDrop (Apple’s new wireless file sharing service). For example, theHuffington Post's Alexis Kleinman put together this primer on how to save battery life with iOS 7 .

    4. Motion Sickness

    There is another weird claim that is getting high concern. It makes users sick. As a report from NBC News asserts , iOS 7’s new 3D desktop might be giving iPhoners vertigo-like symptoms.

    5. iMESSAGE problems.

    A lot of people switching to iOS 7 are reporting the malfunctioning of iMESSAGE, Apple's all-encompassing messaging platform for texting and desktop chatting. According to The Wall Street Journal , Apple has acknowledged the bug and is looking to the resolve the issue as soon as it can. Tech site BGR has reported  that we should expect this fix to come next week by way of Apple's second patch update to iOS 7.

    6. Design Flaws

    Then there are the visual imperfections. One place to get a glimpse of all the places where iOS 7 is a bit off in design and compatibility with third-party apps is sloppyui.tumblr.com . Though this user-submitted Tumblr is described as being “all about intellectual honesty, not trolling,” it’s full of, well, sloppy design inconsistencies and errors, and seems a little troll-y.

    Now, looking at these bugs or say flaws one might say that they are so picky and almost every OS have them in one way or another. But guys, the thing is that its not what you think. These small things make up your best user experience. Apple didn't get the launch it needed with iOS 7 as it was the Apple's largest update to its mobile operating system since iOS was introduced in 2007. Though there are a lot of other changes which took a big leap from iOS 6 to iOS 7. But this time it will take a little more time to adopt those changes.

              Novos modelos de redes sociais        

    As redes sociais online são a resposta maciça à típica pergunta: Quem é você?
    Nesse sentido, o https://www.facebook.com/jfhyppolito marcou um antes e depois como a web plataforma grande de condução 2.0, aquele em que o conteúdo é gerado por todos os usuários de moldar os 3Cs:-Comunicação-cooperação comunitária.

    O site criado por Mark Zuckerberg, que inspirou o premiado filme Rede Social, e tem mais de um bilhão de e continua a crescer usuários, mas saiu de moda. Sim: um artigo recente da fundação Pew Internet & American Life Project revelou que jovens usuários estão mudando seus hábitos no site e migrando para novas alternativas. 

    É que quando os adultos foram adicionados à rede e do número de conhecidos se arregalaram, corria o "partido". Adolescentes deixou sem a necessidade de ajustar as configurações de privacidade e eliminar muitos dos seus posts mais antigos não são adequados para os pais preocupados.

    Além disso, o consumo de redes sociais tornou-se mais específico. Já não basta ter um perfil em uma plataforma. As contas são multiplicadas pelo valor dos juros e é normal que caminhar diariamente por meia dúzia de redes.


    A pergunta surge: os usuários, agora, quais são eles?

    No micro-blogging

    Ou como a de expressar uma ideia em poucas palavras. As novas alternativas estão https://www.tumblr.com/ e https://www.pheed.com/ , embora o mais popular ainda é https://twitter.com/ , com as suas famosas mensagens de 140 caracteres. 

    Aqui a prioridade é o imediatismo e essas plataformas são orientados para o uso móvel. Privacidade importa menos. No entanto, uma nova opção, https://path.com/ , só pode ter 150 contatos, por isso o que queremos dizer apenas ficar entre muito perto.

    Na América Latina, a inovação veio das mãos de http://es.blaving.com/ , oferecendo mensagens de gravação de áudio de dois minutos sobre o que você quer e compartilhá-lo com a comunidade. 



    Este produto criado pela empresa Argentina-Brasil tem uma vantagem competitiva Pmovil o vasto potencial de interligação com outras redes: blavs mensagens gravuras-o de voz também pode postar no Facebook, Twitter e http://www.orkut.com/Main#Home -o rede social mais popular no Brasil -.

    Na partilha de imagens


    Nesta área, http://instagram.com/ era o favorito, especialmente os filtros oferecidos para modificar as imagens de uma forma divertida. Mas os pais colocam suas cabeças nesta comunidade, e agora a opção número um adolescente é http://www.snapchat.com/ , que tem a distinção de imagens -borrar- self destruct depois de ser visto. Este convida mais e enviar Eejits ousados ​​coisas que não importam que eles são para a posteridade. Sim, você tem que ter cuidado porque snapshots podem ser gravados com um screenshot.


    Em mensagens de texto descontroladamente

    Não há necessidade de cobrar à célula conta cards porque as mensagens irão consumir todo o crédito. Com opções como http://kik.com/ e http://www.whatsapp.com/ está resolvido o problema. Apenas 24/7 a equipe e também a nossa meta para tirar único implacavelmente mensagens de texto está conectado à Internet.

    A importância dessas plataformas é revelada quando o Facebook demonstrou interesse em expandir suas ferramentas de mensagens instantâneas e espalhar rumores de que o Google iria comprar Whatsapp http://noticias.tudiscovery.com/whatsapp-google-facebook-y-la-batalla-por-la-mensajeria-instantanea/ .

    Ao voltar para o básico dos blogs

    As ferramentas para blogs e tem dez anos no mercado e tiveram algumas modificações. Em alguns casos permanecem sem atrativos, outros tornaram-se plataformas para a geração de sites. 

    Com https://medium.com/ , o mesmo criador do http://www.blogger.com/homee co-fundador do Twitter, e http://tryghost.org/ , uma plataforma de código aberto, o blog tornou-se as bases. 

    Para onde o que importa são as palavras e a configuração tem a simplicidade e beleza necessária para acompanhá-los.

    Na partilha de interesses

    Não é mais o suficiente para ser parte da mesma como os outros. Há mais nichos que você pode imaginar e achar que é o próprio desafio. Na América Latina, existem várias propostas.

    Um deles é Vinylfy , nascido em fevereiro de 2013, para conectar-se aos amantes de discos de vinil. Na plataforma os usuários podem fazer upload de suas coleções, participar de discussões, conhecer novos lançamentos e encontrar lugares ou pessoas dispostas a vender a coleção de discos precioso. José Pimenta, um dos seus dois criadores-os cubanos residentes em Miami, explica a visão do projeto: "Acreditamos que a combinação do potencial de uma rede social com uma ferramenta que permite aos usuários gerenciar suas coleções de qualquer jeito que você quer precisamos coletar registros experiência ainda mais emocionante. "


    Outra é Facepopular produto de militantes argentinos Facebook mentes cansadas que colocam todos os tipos de restrições, em particular a sua propaganda política. Seus criadores são peronistas e convidar outros "parceiros" para participar de sua Face (Alternativa Frente Contra a Criação). O estilo é semelhante à rede americana, mas com "emoperones" em vez de emoticons Peron foi a alma mater do movimento no meio do século passado, e com a opção de se algo "não gosto" ea possibilidade de escolher o carácter desejável da semana. O software ainda está em beta, mas já completou o contingente inicial de 24 mil inscritos.


    Outro projeto argentino, mas com projeção internacional, é http://www.posibl.com/ , a primeira rede social na solidariedade mundial. Lançado em novembro de 2012 nos Estados Unidos, permite a interação entre usuários e associações que têm um sonho a cumprir. 

    Através de mensagens, fotos e vídeos de cada procurará obter o apoio de outros para alcançar o objetivo final. Por exemplo, um menino argentino poderia conhecer seu ídolo no futebol e uma menina indiana que trabalha em um cruzeiro. Há muitas histórias com finais felizes e mais e mais pessoas envolvidas e que trabalham juntos em cinco continentes, com uma taxa de crescimento de 133 por cento ao mês.

    Muito menos altruísta, mas com muito glamour é a página criada pela atriz colombiana Sofia Vergara e seu parceiro Luis Balaguer: NuevoWorld.com . O site pretende ser uma ponte entre os artistas de língua espanhola e seus seguidores. Enquanto celebridades e interagir com seus fãs através de redes como o Facebook ou Twitter, essas plataformas não foram criados para o efeito;sim esta nova opção. 

    Fotos, vídeos, notas e reportagens exclusivas vai ser a posição. Sofia Vergara, Cristián de la Fuente, Chiquinquirá Delgado, Raul de Molina, Fernando Fiore, Alejandro Chaban e Giselle Blondet e juntou-se, e logo para ser muito mais. O objetivo de seus criadores: chegar a 200 milhões de seguidores. O que uma tarefa.

    Você mudou o seu uso do Facebook nos últimos anos? Qual dessas novas redes sociais que você prefere?

              ÐœÐ¾Ð»Ñ‡Ð°Ð½Ð¸Ðµ-золото!        
    Слово – серебро, молчание – золото. Сколько же мудрости заключено в старинных поговорках..



    Слова – это особый инструмент, которым нужно пользоваться очень умело, что бы не ранить сердца людей. Мы все прекрасно знаем, что слово может лишить человека жизни, а может осчастливить, окрылить или даже спасти от смерти.. Особенно в наше время слова играют очень важную роль в жизни..

    Слово – это и оружие и лекарство. Почему же мы используем слова как нечто разрушающее? Почему мы говорим то, что не принесёт мира и гармонии в отношениях?

    Например, зачем критиковать других? Кого это осчастливит?


    Если вы хотите счастья - ищите счастье. Перестаньте искать то в чём можно сомневаться, за что критиковать. В поисках счастья, вы будете всё больше замечать то, за что можно похвалить, что можно сделать приятного, как порадовать себя и близких вам людей, как сделать вашу жизнь наполненной любовью..

    Если изо дня в день всё время критиковать собаку или кошку, животное начнёт болеть и может даже умереть. Если всё время ругать домашний цветок, он зачахнет. С людьми происходит то же самое, только медленнее.

    Когда мы критикуем кого-то мы его медленно убиваем... Если смотреть глубже, то возникает вопрос – зачем же мы всё таки это делаем? Ведь критика не срабатывает, вы же все это прекрасно знаете. Критика не вдохновляет! Она разрушает.

    К чему приведёт критика мужчины его возлюбленной, его матерью, в общем – не безразличной ему Женщиной?

    Слова женщины относительно недостатков, минусов мужчины являются для него самыми болезненными в восприятии, и порой могут нанести непоправимый вред. То есть сказав что-то не осторожно вы рискуете посадить в сердце мужчины зерно «Ð½Ðµ уверенности в себе», которое превратясь в дерево, будет уже не возможно искоренить.

    Когда мы с вами что-то делаем не так, мы же это точно знаем. Мы знаем все наши минусы и недостатки, все недоработки и промахи, все ошибки и то, что нам нужно в себе менять.. Каждый человек прекрасно знает о своих недостатках! Каждый!

    Одни знают и что-то с этим делают, другие живут как жили, ничего с этим не делая. И те и другие одинаково достойны принятия их такими, какие они есть.

    Критика не поможет и не сработает! Поскольку нового вы человеку ничего не сказали, да ещё и выразили буквально своё недовольство им. Кому это понравится? Или вы каждый раз надеетесь, что он побежит сразу всё исправлять?..

    Поэтому говорите добрые слова, вдохновляющие, слова поддержки, которые греют душу, окрыляют, вдохновляют на то, что бы проявлять ещё больше любви и внимания к вам. Не добрые слова – порождают зло, добрые – добро.

    Поэтому очень важно уметь говорить добрые слова и молчать, если хотите сказать что-то разрушающее, не приятное, покритиковать, обвинить и т.д. выразить свои претензии...

    Доброе приятно всему живому... и собака сразу хвостом завиляет и цветок будет расти сильным и красивым... Что уже говорить про мужчин у которых такой огромный дефицит добрых слов, слов поддержки от их любимых женщин...

    Когда хочется сказать что-то неприятное, лучше промолчать. В этом случае молчание – ключ к миру и гармонии. Молчать очень трудно, зато польза велика! Если кто-то критикует вас, оскорбляет, кричит, а вы сохраняете молчание, человеку станет стыдно и в этой безответной тишине будет громче звучать голос его совести...

    Если ваш любимый делает что-то не так, не критикуйте его, вдохновите на добрые дела, на большее внимание к вам. Но не критикуйте и не обвиняйте. Иначе будет только хуже!

    Молчите. Молчание – золото! Постарайтесь в такие минуты вспоминать случаи, когда ваш любимый делал то, что восхищало вас... и подумайте о том, что он как и вы не совершенен, что каждому из нас нужно ещё очень многому учиться но не посредством обоюдных упрёков и критики. А благодаря поддержке, прощению, принятию и вдохновению!

    Не давайте вашему негодованию говорить вашими устами.
    Пусть только у вашего сердца будет право голоса!
    Берегите себя и своих возлюбленных!

              iOS customers express disdain on changes to eBook Stores - Good E-Reader (blog)        

    oneline riots

    Apple recently implemented new policies that demanded companies sell their digital content via iTunes. This strongly effected eBook stores that either sold content directly via their application or diverted customers to their websites. In the last few weeks, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Borders, Kobo, and other major applications all removed in-app purchasing of books. This has sparked outrage from casual book customers who one day realized they could no longer buy books.

    Much of the ire from customers is spread between Apple and the companies trying to avoid giving 30% of every sale to iTunes. This has sparked a slew of negative reviews of existing ebooks or people voiding their rage on various forums. Many Kindle customers have been expressing their disconcert HERE and HERE about the elimination of being able to buy books directly through the Amazon iOS App. Meanwhile, Kobo staff and customers have all been lamenting the current situation via Tumblr and the Kobo Blog.

    All of the major companies that eliminated their purchasing abilities emailed their entire customer base to make them aware. Although, oftentimes people never get the emails for a myriad of reasons. People change their email address or find it goes to their spam box and were never aware of the new changes.

    Casual customers who might buy books every few weeks and do not pay attention to our Good e-Reader Blog found that overnight all of their favorite stores eliminated purchasing of content via their App. We would like to encourage everyone to continue buying books via the companies' websites. Anything you buy will be synced automatically to your iPad, iPhone, or iPod (ipod touch firmware 3.1.3 download) Touch, and you just have to jump through more hoops to do it. Simply load up Safari and bookmark the stores site you use.

    It is honestly too bad Apple instituted these new policies and it effected not just book companies but also many independent game developers too. I am happy the eBook stores decided not cave into the demands of Apple. eBooks are on the rise and the sales are increasing every day. Within a few  years Apple could have garnered billions of dollars just from Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Kobo.

    If we can learn anything from the big companies deciding not to sell content via Apple, it does leave room for smaller companies to allow customers to do just that. We could see a boom period in start-ups and smaller book sellers to assimilate some of the disillusioned customers to buy via their app.

              Dexter pode voltar como minisserie        
    Retorno do personagem pode estar mais certo do que imaginamos. 
    Mas será que Dexter vai voltar à Showtime?

    Segundo o site Inquisitr, Dexter vai voltar à Showtime como minissérie especial.

    Não é segredo que o carismático serial killer deixou saudade em seus fãs. E não apenas neles, já que a audiência do canal Showtime não é das melhores desde o fim do drama. Também não é segredo que o Showtime tentaria de tudo para trazer o anti-herói de volta à tela, eles mesmos já assumiram que gostariam muito de fazer a coisa acontecer.

    A verdade é que a série nunca morreu para eles, que mantêm perfis ativos em redes sociais e grupos de fãs que movimentam a internet em busca de mais Dexter.

    Segundo o Screen Crush, os showrunners mostraram interesse em reviver o seriado e Michal C Hall também estaria disponível para voltar a vivê-lo nas telas. O ator disse em recentes entrevistas que espera poder trabalhar novamente com a Showtime quando e se eles estiverem prontos.

    O produtor David Nevins afirmou que se comprometeria com Dexter se Jennifer Carpenter e Michael C Hall retornassem. Também disse que teria que trabalhar com o time de roteiristas para encontrar uma nova e diferente história, que mude a série completamente. Nevins não gostaria de seguir trilhando o caminho anterior.

    “Eu gostaria de fazer Dexter com um novo conceito e configuração. Gostaria de fazer uma série que fosse diferente, não apenas uma continuação do seriado anterior.”

    Até agora a única ideia comentada pela Showtime seria a de ter uma minissérie. Os roteiristas ainda não estão certo sobre firmarem o compromisso de uma temporada como as anterior. Seria preciso trabalhar alguns detalhes importantes, já que para alguns, trazer Dexter de volta é uma missão quase impossível. Como explicar Jennifer Carpenter (Deb Morgan) de volta após o final da personagem? E como trazer Dexter de volta ao que era, após uma vida como lenhador?

    Não há planos de lançamento, nem mais informações além do interesse por uma minissérie baseada no personagem.

              Gráfico feito por fã aponta o final de Dexter como o pior de todos os tempos        
    Um usuário do Reddit chamado ChallengeResponse tirou um tempinho para culminar as notas que usuários do IMDB dão para episódios de série, visando mostrar o quão difícil é fazer um bom series finale.

    Em sua pesquisa, ele mostra os resultados em formato de gráfico. Nele, existe o “pontinho preto”, que é a média de todas as notas dadas para a série pelos avaliadores do IMDB. A “setinha verde” mostra a nota do último episódio da série, caso essa nota tenha sido superior à média da série. Por último, a “setinha vermelha” mostra a nota do episódio final, caso tenha sido inferior à média de notas da série.
    CLIQUE NA IMAGEM PARA AMPLIAR

    O resultado mostra Dexter com o finale mais decepcionante, enquanto Glee teve um finale muito acima da média.

    Breaking Bad, muito considerada pelos fãs, tem média geral e de finale muito próxima, visto a qualidade estável da série. Lost, que possui um final muito criticado, impressiona por ter a nota do finale não muito abaixo de sua média geral.

              Happy 2014!        
    Well today is the first official day of the New Year! Its so exciting to have a blank year ahead of me full of possibility. Instead of making any "resolutions" I wanted to make some goals for myself. Resolutions hold so much pressure and I find I break them easily. However, goals for me are more attainable and I can achieve them without the added stress. Heres my list of things I hope to accomplish in the coming year:

    1. Become active in the church.
    2. Have more playdates.
    3. Make some friends!
    4. Try my hardest in school.
    5. Make it a point to eat cleaner and watch the additives in my food.
    6. Exercise at least 3 times a week. 
    7. More intentional play time with little Loo.
    8. Consistent grace-based discipline.
    9. Try something new!
    10. Deepen my relationship with Christ.
    11. Experiment more with my cooking and trying new recipes.
    12. Live out what I learn in the bible.
    13. Take chances and seize new opportunities. 
    14. Be more consistent with my blogging.


    Ironically my list holds 14 goals for 2014. I like when things work out like that. Im very excited to see what this year holds for me and my baby. 2013 was a hard year for me. There were al lot of changes and a lot of challenges. However, I know that God has led me to the exact place I need to be. North Carolina has provided us with a completely fresh start. A place where I can be exactly who I am now without being judged by my past. Its thrilling to start over. I hope to make this year the best yet :)

    TALMADGE 1
    — The Talmadge Memorial Bridge in Savannah

    All this week we'll be running a series of year-end pieces by friends of the blog in a manner that, I trust, suits the blog and its character. That is, there weren't many rules. We just wanted to share our enthusiasms about a number of things that impressed us and helped each of us on our way to today, tomorrow, to 2012. Each post will be cross-published on Brian Darr's still-invaluable SF-centric cinephile blog, Hell On Frisco Bay not as a traffic generator but because he's my good buddy and we thought of this project together. It's also just fun to spread the wealth/love. So check back, subscribe, whatever. There will be daily updates to the feed and to this post in particular (as well as to Brian's blog). Until then, bite your nails and eat your hearts out.

    Crimmus Eve Update: We're all done! Thanks for reading. Hope it was fun for you. It was fun to share. Merry Crimbo and a Happy New Year. Go see some movies!

    Observations

    My, How Impermanent by Ryland Walker Knight

    Earlier this week my Indiewire ballot appeared. I still stand by it, I suppose, but even just a week after publication I itch to change things. In fact, the whole enterprise gives me hives to a certain degree. The whole idea of absolutes in general, in any context. If you take a look at that list, you'll see a collection of films, I'd wager, premised on contingency, or some form of mystery or mess or exuberance. Even the more "straight" narratives (Cronenberg's & Jacobs' portrait-films) exhibit an interest in how things do not fit, or ever fix into reliable—much less accepted, normal—forms. Perhaps the best term I can reduce this idea to is a favorite on this blog: navigation. Life's not a maze, but there are hurdles every day, including waking up, not to mention the unexpected tidal wave every so often. We're so used to the narratives we're given or that we give ourselves that eluding the unwanted can wreck a day, a month, a year. (Lucky me: my year saw hiccups and headaches but nothing got wrecked. Truth is, I had a fantastic year. And I'm grateful.) Naturally, I'm attracted to films about finding ways through life.

    ———

    Finding a way to make movie-going more a part of my movie-watching has been difficult this year, the past couple years. Granted, I got to attend Cannes. But the pleasures of that were certainly "extracurricular" as much as within the salles and theaters. The dinners, the new friends, the jokes over whiskey and rosé with Danny and Adrian after long days. But I still cherish movie-going.


    Early last week, in fact, I had the supreme pleasure to take in one of the best double bills in recent memory at the Roxie Theatre (with Brian, yes): the early show was Borzage's Moonrise followed by Renoir's first H'wood venture, the insanely under-seen and apparently under-recognized Swamp Water. Two films about the south made by not-southerners that understand the south and southerners in ways you rarely see anymore. (Of course, I'm not a southerner; I'm a Californian. My Okie roots are roots and my relationship to GA/SC is tertiary at best.) But aside from any obtuse anthropological/ethnological reading I can offer, the films exist and excel simply as films. Borzage's at his Murnau best and Renoir is at his dollies-everywhere (and "people as people") best. And they spoke to one another in delicious ways the way a double bill is supposed to work. Steve Seid usually knows what he's doing but this was a special program. The swamp has different narrative functions in the films, but in both the swamp is a hunting ground, a space of violence, something untamable that few can master or at least negotiate (or inhabit!). Again, this speaks to how I see the world at large. Life takes skills we never anticipate requiring, but nonetheless accrue. True to this optimism I harbor—inside an unavoidable but I hope healthy cynicism w/r/t life's obstacles, including people (above all people?)—both protagonists of these films find ways to join the world by their stories' ends.


    Then again, not every path is a success. The film I felt worst about leaving off my "official" top ten was Edward Yang's A Brighter Summer Day. That movie's all about the disconnect we're forced to confront as we grow through adolescence. It's about a lot more, too, including light, but there's a violence in adolescence that it understands (something Haz and I talk about as he is a teacher). This is true of all the Yang pictures I've seen, but this one is obviously special. Its length affords its narrative the space for us to observe characters rationalize their way through choices good and bad alike (though mostly bad) all the way. This is what critics mean when they call a film novelistic: time affording space for character. Granted, that's a limited view of what "the novel" is or can be, but this film in particular, as with many likewise classified films, is after a Dickensian kind of scope forever grounded in place and details. This, too, is how best to think of something like Breaking Bad, which Jen talked about yesterday.

    Television, after all, is serialized much how the early money-making novels were; both are strategized as much as constructed with plot doled out in delimited chunks. But, as Jen noted, one of the pleasures of BB is just how digressive it is, how much air time is given to behavior and go-nowhere episodes of bickering. And it's not like this show's hopeful. It's got a pretty grim take on human desire and nature and intelligence. As I've said before, these characters are idiots. Walter White seems to have figured out a few things watching Gus operate, like the cost of survival in such a dangerous game as the drug racket, but he's still a bald, selfish, myopic stranger to himself and his oh-so-beloved family by the end of this last season. And the person he's closest to has every reason in the world to want to slit his throat.

    ———

    I've been using my tumblr more than this home base throughout the year. Part of it is simply ease of use. Another is desire. The last is time. I like the scrapbook/notebook feel of the microblog. It feels like a repository of reminders. And it usually takes very little effort. Writing here is more work. (Writing anything is work!) Not sure what the new year will bring, but I'm not quite ready to quit my baby. But I quit making zines to make this blog and I may wind up quitting this blog to wind up making more films. Even if they're just little goofs about the sounds of seagulls or odd poems about light and memory. The future has more answers than me.

    ———


    One thing I know for sure: though I've made some great friends via emails (cf. this week), there's a lot I'm proud of from this past year outside the walls and tubes of the internet. Thank you to everybody who helped make those realities real. You know who you are.

    by Durga Chew-Bose

    I’ve been especially preoccupied with women this year. My desktop is a cluttered mess of young Michelle Pfeiffers and Diane Lanes, a spitfire-y Linda Manz, a pouty Tatum O’Neal, Elaine May, Gilda, Sissy and Shelley, Karen Black (multiple times), Cher with Winona, and screengrabs of Gena as Minnie. The young mother in Andrea Arnold’s short film, Wasp, is giving me the finger, Haydée Politoff, her back, Geraldine Chaplin and Monica Vitti seduce, smoke…seduce, and Bibi Andersson is beside herself. Marie-France Posier—who in an eerie way, congeals into "Laura Palmer"—is slouched in a bathtub, moon-eyed and fully-clothed, hair braided and boots dangling over the edge like a child who’s not quite sure how she got there or if she wants to get out.

    I should probably organize all of these pictures. Or at least drag them into a folder. But what’s the fun in that? I enjoy the distraction; their perpetual orbit, the familiarity. The delight of seeing Chiara Mastroianni and remembering the way she says “Ann-Gé-lah Bah-ssette” when ribbing about Emmanuelle Devos’ butt in Desplechin’s Un conte de Noël. Or even now as I write, on the top right corner of my screen, Diane Keaton’s Kay Adams is smiling: red dress and sun hat, she’s listening as Michael tells her to eat her spaghetti while he spins a story about Luca Brasi.


    Barbara Loden’s Wanda aired on TCM in the fall. I watched it twice in a row—the first time completely crushed but immediately devoted; the second time, with a pen and my notebook. I jotted down images and words that drew near in the way some movies—the most pressing ones—appear to come from somewhere itchy inside me. I also copied dialogue; harmless in print, vivid, near wicked on screen. Like how credulously Wanda asks at a dive bar if “[She] can borrow a comb,” or how promptly a patron spots her sitting alone with no money and says, “I’ll take care of this.” I scribbled stuff like “washed-up cheerleader ponytail,” “WOOLWORTH’S parking lot,” “Mabel Longhetti, Rayette Dipesto…” “pincushion top bun, hand resting on forehead as cigarette burns,” “sitting in back of empty bus,” “sits with knees up at movie theater,” “follows instructions!!!” Soon after, I wrote about the film and Loden, and her marriage to Elia Kazan for This Recording.


    At least twice a month this year I watched the same YouTube clip: a 1974 episode of the Dick Cavett Show with guest Lucille Ball. Cavett’s hair looks two days short of a haircut and Lucille is wrapped in a brown Muppet-trimmed jacket. Her legs are crossed away from him, impassive as if sitting at a coffee shop one table over. She turns her torso only slightly to answer his questions, as if saying, “Why are you talking to me?” It’s incredible. But when Cavett recalls the time a Marx brother appeared on her show, Lucille melts. Her eyes roll back as she says his name—“Haaaaaarpo." Pure piety. As Dick sets up the clip, Lucille falls back into her sad clown state, burrowing in her feathers, only to jump at any chance to honor her friend; a "darling man." Mimicking the famous mirror scene in Duck Soup, Lucy, dressed as Harpo, surprises him and matches his every move. Two Harpos. Two distressed top-hats. Two bulb horns. Out-and-out laughs. My face gets mangled with cheer each time.


    Mia Hansen-Løve makes moments on screen that I'd like to elope with. Her 2009 feature, Le père de mes enfants, plucks ornament from the everyday—the way three daughters occupy adult spaces, a father's unexpected helplessness, adolescent agonies, a parent's things—and her follow-up, Un amour de jeunesse, kindly plots the elaborate confusion and spectacle of first love and teenage heartbreak. It screened once at IFC and I made sure to see it.


    Teenagers, especially French girls, are terrifically soulful characters. Like Sandrine Bonnaire's Suzanne or Virginie Ledoyen as Christine in L'eau Froide, they are rash, sneaky, jumpy, and dip into dark bouts of misery or big dopey loves. Hansen-Løve (who too, looks eternally adolescent and slightly anonymous like a face in a found passport photo) perfectly maneuvers teenage girl unrest. Tethered to a boy who leaves her, Camille (Lola Creton) undergoes grueling grief—inexplicably endless when we're young. But before that—and what Hansen-Løve does so well—Romance is breathless, braless, a series of grand gestures and promises that bank on time never ticking. In one scene, Camille and Sullivan are in the country experiencing an afternoon cold war; she upstairs in bed moping, he outside, somewhere. He returns with food and cooks dinner for the two of them. Later, Camille stumbles downstairs and slides into her chair. She has one bite before slowly crawling across the table's bench which separates them and nudges her head into his neck. All is forgotten, for now. The audience knows that this brief moment of peace is bittersweet and that we cannot will it to last longer.

    And finally, here are bits from a November 1993 PREMIERE piece, She’s Done Everything (except direct) by Rachel Abramowitz, about Polly Platt, a woman I truly admire. When she died on July 27th, I read everything I could find on her life.

    "Tonight she seems quite ebullient, charged up by her recent discovery of two young filmmakers from Texas… Bottle Rocket makes her giddy….'If I were young, I’d give up everything -boyfriend, home- and go to Texas and beg these guys to let me work on their movie.'

    …

    "Still, when her ex-husband picks up, all her expansiveness vanishes. She seems to contract into an almost fetal position. Her voice becomes tight, careful. The conversation has a ritualistic quality: all the habits of intimacy, but no longer the trust. She treats him as if he were fragile, thanking him for the flowers he sent her, babying him with the good buzz she’s heard about his latest venture. She tells him about Bottle Rocket. 'It’s in Texas and there’s no Larry McMurtry, but it has a bit of the feel of The Last Picture Show, she says. She asks him to talk to PREMIERE about her. He refuses. 'I’ve been talking all these fucking years about you!' she erupts."

    ...

    "One year later, they packed their meager belongings into a car, along with Platt’s one-eyed dog, Puppy, and set out for L.A., where they soon befriended the auteurs they worshiped. One night, Howard Hawks took the pair out for dinner, along with a beautiful young starlet from Rio Lobo named Sherry Lansing. Toward the end of the meal, Lansing decided to visit the ladies’ room. 'She stood up, and she was gorgeous. And I was not,' says Platt. 'Peter and Howard watched her. She walked to the bathroom, and I remember having Howard on my right and Peter on my left, and their eyes were following her.' As Lansing disappeared from view, Platt recalls, Hawks leaned across her and said, ‘Peter, now that is the kind of girl that you should be with.’ I remember thinking, It’s like I don’t exist.'"

    …

    "One summer while the children were with Bogdanovich, Platt drank seventeen cases of beer and wrote Pretty Baby."

    …

    "After sending other emissaries, Brooks asked her personally to produce Broadcast News, which she did. Her all-around dedication to the project renewed her legend for telling detail. Brooks had wanted Broadcast News’ key color to be red; now he was shooting the schoolyard scene where the young Aaron is getting beaten up. He looked up and saw the woman who fifteen years ago had removed the E from a TEXACO sign; she was down on her knees, painting a red accent line on a staircase. 'If you were putting together a baseball team, this is the person you’d kill for,' says Albert Brooks, who played the adult Aaron. 'She can play any position. She can hit; she can pitch.'"

    …

    "'There are times when I hear Jim talk that I experience something that is so much worse than the jealousy that I felt toward Cybill. I am so envious of his ability to think and express himself that I think I’m going to die. I totally identify with Salieri [in Amadeus], because when he picks up Mozart’s music and starts talking about how brilliant it is, I feel like that’s me. But I don’t have any desire to destroy Jim or Peter or anybody.'"

              Marketing to Extremists: Waging War in Cyberspace        


    04/08/2017 Andrew Byers Social Media

    This article was originally published by the Small Wars Journal on 9 July 2017.

    Online, the Islamic State is a technologically savvy, sophisticated, and nimble organization that learns from its mistakes and from the actions of the Western intelligence services and NGOs that have sought to counter it. It is no secret that past and current efforts to reach potential terrorists before they can become radicalized and committed to a path of jihad and terrorism have proved inadequate. To use the language of online marketers, countering ISIS’s online activities will require quality content disseminated on a massive scale, with careful product placement. Placing counter-messaging products into platforms and forums that extremists frequent will increase the chances of potential terrorist recruits coming into contact with narratives outside of ISIS’ control.

    ISIS’s cyber efforts have paid off; the FBI told Congress in July 2016 that “the message of radicalization spreads faster than we imagined just a few years ago.”[i] The number of foreigners who have been inspired by the Islamic State’s online propaganda to travel to Syria and Iraq (or elsewhere) and participate in the fighting is unclear, but most estimates place the tally at more than 20,000. Others have been set on the path of radicalization by ISIS’s online propaganda and have become “lone wolf” attackers in the United States or in Europe.[ii] Demographically speaking, the people who ISIS is most interested in targeting for recruitment came of age in the twenty-first century as “digital natives”; they have lived their entire lives surrounded by ubiquitous online communications and have embraced it in technologically sophisticated ways.[iii] ISIS knows how to appeal to these potential jihadis. Reaching them with counter-messages will require a sophisticated and multi-faceted approach.

    America’s public and private sectors must commit the resources needed to carry out this counter-messaging, though we must understand that such an information war cannot be won in a short period of time, but rather, must be carried out resolutely and patiently, even in the absence of quantitative metrics of success. For example, how will we assess our effectiveness, when one measure of success is how many potential jihadis did not decide to carry out lone wolf attacks or travel to Syria? This is an entirely new and different kind of fight from any we have been engaged previously. Even without quantitative measures of effectiveness fully fleshed out, we can use scale, quality content, and product placement to improve current efforts to shape–and hopefully win–the online propaganda wars to come.

    Understanding Our Options

    In terms of quality counter-messaging content, the State Department–the lead U.S. agency in this fight—has already acknowledged its past failures in content production. Notably, it has acknowledged that it may not be the voice best-suited to convince Middle Eastern or Muslim recruits to turn away from the path of terrorism. The State Department’s Global Engagement Center has pivoted away from producing content, and instead now supports the efforts of localized “proxies,” thereby supporting other voices that understand the context, culture, and push/pull factors that resonate within Muslim communities.[iv] It is not only government entities involved in this struggle; various NGOs also participate in counter-jihad content creation, drawing upon former extremists, notable academics, and a multitude of languages.[v]

    The West’s efforts to date have mostly created a series of reactive, ineffective counter-narratives that potential jihadis dismiss. We advocate for precision messaging; for example, past efforts by State Department entities have mined public social media data to identify individuals who may be susceptible to extremism and then pay for YouTube ads that counter extremist messaging. But we don’t need to mine public data to put counter messaging into the world of potential recruits. The United States must become aggressive and proactive in its anti-Islamic State online activities: it must immediately move to hijack the group’s own narratives and create alternatives.

    When it comes to scale, the current efforts by the United States and its allies are merely a drop in the ocean of ISIS’s material. If ISIS posts nearly 100,000 messages each day, as the British House of Commons Defence Committee stated in 2015,[vi] then countering their content will take a significant amount of internet traffic or else we risk being drowned out. This component cannot be ignored or understated. Current counter-messaging efforts are not achieving enough volume to warrant a response by would-be extremists, let alone to spark an actual conversation or debate among extremists. If we have quality content and we know where to put it to reach potential recruits, we still cannot reach enough people without massively increasing the current volume of counter-messaging efforts.

    When it comes to proper product placement for the counter-messaging, the best way to decide where and how to reach recruits is by watching ISIS itself. ISIS has had to transition from various platforms throughout its years of recruitment, including Tumblr, Facebook, Twitter, and Telegram. ISIS’s supporters take an active role in finding new platforms, spreading propaganda, and shepherding others along to new sites and procedures. It is not uncommon for followers to post specific instructions on where to post or how to manipulate different platforms’ terms of service to remain undetected or prevent accounts from being shut down. As they communicate best practices to each other, they create a trail for analysts to follow and instructions for counter-messaging units in order to put counter content where recruits will see it, even if this sometimes results in informational “misfires.”

    The opportunities afforded by focusing our efforts on these approaches are manifold. If we are able to effectively erode the Islamic State’s ability to use propaganda to inspire self-directed attacks in the West, it would be forced to expend its resources and personnel on directed attacks in the West if it wishes to continue such operations. Sending Islamic State operatives into the West to carry out attacks there is a much more difficult and costly proposition, and one that is vulnerable to the West’s traditional strengths in intelligence and counterterrorism.

    A Starting Point

    We have compiled a list of some of ISIS’s known recruitment practices, along with specific recommendations for ways that counter-messaging organizations could take advantage of them. This list is not meant to be comprehensive or static, but rather to serve as a starting point that could be executed immediately and without excessive cost or effort.

    Keeping Followers as Twitter/Telegram Accounts are Shut Down: As Twitter has improved its process of shutting down Islamic State accounts, its supporters have devised strategies to maintain their network of followers from one account to their next. The most popular method is to simply add a number to their Twitter username and then to increase that number each time they are shut down and begin a new account. Thus, for example, followers of @Muslimah6 could find her on her new account @Muslimah7 after Twitter shut down her account. This method of maintaining followers has been adapted for Telegram as well. The Islamic State’s unofficial news channel “Khilafah News” is left public, meaning that new users can always find it. But this also allows Telegram to shut it down at any time. The administrators of Khilafah News add a number to the end of their channel’s invitation link and increase this number every time the previous channel is shut down by Telegram. It is important to remember that Islamic State recruiters want to be found in order to effectively recruit new members. This nomenclature pattern allows them to do just that. But more importantly, it creates an opportunity for those creating alternative narratives to put their content on a Telegram channel or a Twitter account that they know Islamic State supporters will follow. New iterations of the Khilafah News channel could be created, knowing that once Telegram shuts down the last Khilafah News channel Islamic State supporters would follow the new fake channel, believing it to be authentic Islamic State channels and increasing the likelihood that a recruit would be exposed to counter-messaging.

    The Islamic State’s Hashtags: Since it began disseminating propaganda on social media, the Islamic State has embraced the power of hashtags. In 2014 it famously hijacked World Cup hashtags in English and Arabic in order to spread its propaganda and shock social media users who may not have been previously exposed to such messages. The group has also advertised hashtags for supporters to use when tagging and finding new propaganda. Just as the Islamic State hijacks popular hashtags, counter-messaging teams can utilize the group’s own hashtags when posting content on social media. This will put alternative narratives in the same social media conversation as the Islamic State’s propaganda and will increase the chances that a recruit would receive facts about the group. The U.S. government has begun to take tentative steps in this direction, but such efforts could be vastly expanded.

    Promotion and Marketing: The Islamic State disseminates small propaganda pieces daily, but its larger propaganda pieces take more time. In order to build hype, the Islamic State typically advertises with multi-lingual “trailers” for large upcoming pieces. Dissemination of the pieces generally occur days later, but there is no set schedule. Upon dissemination, the group posts its videos on YouTube, social media, and various self-publishing sites. Teams that produce content to counter the Islamic State must have videos ready for dissemination at all times. Then as new Islamic State’s trailers begin to appear on social media, the counter-content can be disseminated first under the same name as the propaganda that the Islamic State is advertising and it must be placed on all of the sites that the group uses. Recruits will be checking frequently for the release and the Islamic State will actually be advertising and promoting pieces that could pull recruits away. This would effectively drown out the Islamic State’s content while increasing the likelihood that recruits see alternative narratives.

    Take Advantage of Platform Restrictions and Features:Not all of the Islamic State’s content is violent and grotesque; it produces some content that does not show any violent images or videos whatsoever. This allows the content to be played on news programs and for it be posted on YouTube. Knowing that the Islamic State works to keep its content available on major publishing sites, counter-narrative agencies must do the same. If a recruit searches for the name of a popular propaganda video on YouTube or an equivalent site, counter-content should appear with the same name. Video creators can even pay to promote their content so that it tops a search list. A greater understanding for how various platforms choose the order of their search results would help counter content receive just as many hits, if not more, than Islamic State propaganda.

    Maintaining YouTube Channels: The Islamic State has a carefully structured propaganda structure. It has central marketing agencies that run video content, radio broadcasts, and written publications. These “federal” programs are represented within each wilayat, or province, as well. Each wilayat produces its own multilingual videos and publications that are often featured in publications from the central agencies. Islamic State supporters have advanced this model even further. There are several known propaganda groups that support the Islamic State but are not run by official Islamic State employees. Supporters make their own content and publish it on YouTube, Twitter, Telegram, and various other social and self-publishing sites. Like the Islamic State’s agencies, they have their own calligraphic logos and follow predictable but evolving patterns. “Al-Haqq” is one such Islamic State-affiliated group that runs its own Telegram channels and YouTube accounts. It would be simple to create a YouTube account called “Al-Haqq,” utilizing the group’s logo and publishing content that appears to be Islamic State videos. In reality, these videos could contain counter-messaging content with the same names as known extremist productions.

    In adopting these methods, even potential jihadis who are adept at hiding their identities or degree of radicalization would come into contact with alternative narratives that may cause them to question the narratives ISIS feeds to its supporters.  It is important for analysts who study ISIS’s dissemination of propaganda to remain in constant contact with those working to counter ISIS’s messaging, helping the latter to evolve along with ISIS and other extremist groups. While we are currently scrambling to combat ISIS’s propaganda campaigns in the cyber domain, learning to develop the necessary approaches now will allow us to excel in future cyber wars with other extremist groups. Without a new strategy for winning the information war, the West will always be reactive and on the defensive as it struggles to compete with the Islamic State for the hearts and minds of Muslims around the world. Most importantly, if we can create an adaptive and empowered cyber effort now, we will be better equipped for the terrorist groups that will learn from and advance the work that the Islamic State is doing now. Future jihadi organizations that come after the Islamic State can be expected to be even savvier users of social media and similar communications venues. Unless the West learns to use social media with the same level of sophistication, it will continue to lose the information war and fall further behind.

              Blue Flag Status for 8 of the City of Cape Town's beaches        
    Picture: iafrica (source: Tumblr)

    The National Minister of Tourism, Marthinus van Schalkwyk, confirmed that eight of the City of Cape Town’s beaches and two of its marinas have been awarded Blue Flag Status.

    The Blue Flag is a voluntary eco-label awarded annually to over 3650 beaches and marinas in 44 countries across Europe, South Africa, Morocco, Tunisia, New Zealand, Brazil, Canada and the Caribbean. The City has successfully participated in the Blue Flag Beach Programme since its inception in South Africa in 2001.

    This year the City applied for Blue Flag status for eight of its beaches across the metropole – all of which have been granted this coveted status. This means that the City has the highest number of Blue Flag beaches in South Africa.

    The beaches that have been awarded Blue Flag status for this season, which runs from 1 December 2012 to 31 March 2013, are Bikini, Mnandi, Strandfontein, Muizenberg, Llandudno, Camps Bay, Clifton 4th and Silwerstroomstrand.

    Blue Flag beaches are required to meet 32 criteria spanning four aspects of coastal management: water quality, environmental education and information, environmental management and safety and services. The status indicates that the beaches are clean, have adequate ablution facilities and parking, are environmentally sound, are safe and secure to visit, and adhere to international safety and tourism standards.

    In conclusion, the Blue Flag brand adds value to Cape Town’s Responsible Tourism offerings and supports the implementation of the City’s Responsible Tourism Policy.

    -Возраст:
    24
    -Знаменитость на аватаре:
    На ваше усмотрение, но предварительно обговорить со мной х)
    -Биография:
    На ваш выбор, учитывая эти факты х):
    * Так же, как и Карлос, родилась в Толедо, знает Алиру с пеленок и помогла ей сбежать
    * В Испании держала свою команду уличных гонщиков, в которую входили Карлос и Алира

    * Вместе с Алирой занималась карате и волейболом
    * Переехала в Нью-Йорк вместе с Карлосом в свои 24, там же впервые встретилась с Диаз спустя три года
    -Характер (по желанию)
    Такая же бунтарка, как и Алира. Всегда ищет приключения на свою пятую точку, постоянно язвит и ехидничает. К работе относиться серьезно, рассудительна и расчетлива. Своих не предаст

    характер Диаз

    Что ж, характер мисс Диаз описать будет сложно, так как она, пожалуй, самый противоречивый человек на всём свете. Эта девушка очень непостоянна, что доставляет много проблем как окружающим, так и ей самой. В ней складывается приличное количество различных характерных черт (если не все) – начиная от радости, заканчивая дьявольским гневом. Та черта, которую Кобра ненавидит в себе больше всего – это её вспыльчивость. Сколько раз она срывалась на ни в чём не повинных людях или предметах; сколько раз эта вспыльчивость доставляла девушке вагон и целую тележку неприятностей. Но всё на самом деле в тысячу раз хуже, ибо к этой «проблеме» добавляется  жестокость этой личности. Да, именно так. Она довольно жестока, особенно с врагами, а если ее завести, то потом придется попросту об этом пожалеть, т.к. заводится она с пол-оборота. Одно неверное слово в её адрес – зловещее «что ты сказал, ублюдок?» и наглый обидчик может попрощаться с жизнью, ну или с несколькими костями, если повезёт. Вывод: если Алира в дурном расположении духа – к ней лучше не соваться; травмоопасно. Так же она прощает с большим трудом, если вообще прощает, и предпочитает мстить. Но это в большинстве случаев касается лишь недоброжелателей; с друзьями всё проще.
    Иногда в девушке присутствует немалая доля спокойствия. Бывают дни, когда мисс Диаз на чистую голову трезво оценивает ситуацию; или же исполняет роль Будды, успокаивая своих соратников.Так же в таком состоянии Алира всегда может найти выход даже из самой сложной ситуации, при этом совсем не паникуя, что не раз вытаскивало её из задницы.
    Нельзя оставить без внимания её отношение к друзьям. Если описать его в общих чертах, то можно сказать, что с друзьями Алиру можно видеть только как задорного человека. Находясь в компании, она никогда не заставит никого скучать. Кобра бурная, с пылким нравом и большим энтузиазмом; энергия из Диаз бьет ключом. Когда у нее хорошее настроение, она улыбается и смеется так, что начинаешь невольно повторять за ней. Она веселая, смотрит на этот гребаный мир с улыбкой. Всегда найдет общий язык с кем угодно, поэтому никогда не оставляет скучать никого, но при этом Алира достаточно закрытый человек, предпочитающий узнавать информацию о других, ежели делиться своей. Постоянно подкалывает друзей, разговаривает с ними практически на любые темы, и никогда не откажется от похода  куда-нибудь. Однако есть очень малое количество людей, с которыми у мисс Диаз совершенно иные отношения; будь то друг или подруга. Мало кто знает, что за близких людей Алира готова отдать голову на отсечение. Она никогда не даст их в обиду и всегда будет рядом в самые трудные или же радостные моменты. Про преданность, думаю, даже не стоит упоминать, ибо и так понятно, что Кобра – не крыса. Конечно, она может разок-другой пойти налево, ведь все люди делают ошибки, но, чтобы совершить что-то фатальное… нет, такого не произойдет.
    Так же в девушке есть парочка нейтральных черт, т.е. иногда они оказываются полезными, а иногда – напротив. Одной такой является упрямство. Если Кобра вбила что-либо себе в голову, она доведет это «что-то» до конца. Из кожи вон вылезет, но доведет. Вы будете долго упрашивать её остановиться, но всё будет четно, Диаз упрется рогом и будет стоять на своём. Из этого так же можно выловить целеустремлённость, которая досталась девушке от матери. Ещё Алира никогда не признает свою вину, даже если ее поймают с «поличным» она будет всячески отнекиваться и искать «лазейки» и в итоге заставить вас поверить в свою правоту. Не признает ошибок, даже самых маленьких. Но если ей указывают на ее промахи - девушка буквально звереет.
    И на последок скажу вам о том, что Алира - очень хитрая «штучка». Ее практически невозможно обвести вокруг пальца; она всегда бдительна и чует опасность за версту, а если ей по-настоящему что-то требуется, девушка применит всю свою природную смекалку и сообразительность и сделает все, и результат будет на ее стороне. Так же в ней, как и во многих других девушках (хотя мужчины говорят, что во всех) живет стерва обыкновенная, которая временами дает о себе знать. Обман для нее - сущий пустяк. Для девушки ничего не стоит лишний раз обвести вокруг пальца очередного глупенького мальчика со смазливой мордашкой.

    -Имя персонажа: Lillian (Lilly) Howk | Лиллиан (Лили) Хоук

    -Профессия: журналист, интервьюер

    -Возраст: 20 лет

    -Знаменитость на аватаре: Lykke Li (и только она! смена внешности не допускается)

    http://static.nme.com/images/gallery/LykkeLiPR100111.jpg

    -Биография: дочь родного дяди Нейтана. Так уж повелось, что отец Хоука был в ужасных отношениях со своим младшим братом, так что Нейт не подозревал о существовании своей двоюродной сестры, как и она вообразить не могла, что у нее есть старший брат.
    Росла Лили трудным ребенком - с ней всегда были проблемы, а взбалмошный характер только подливал масла в огонь. Ее лучшими друзьями были соседские мальчишки, с которыми она частенько попадала в отделение по делам несовершеннолетних. Так уж повелось, что у юной Лиллиан всегда и на все было свое собственное мнение.
    С родителями отношения не складывались, мать рано умерла от рака, так что вся ответственность по воспитанию легла на отца. Он был не прочь лизнуть из бутылки, так что девушка частенько была предоставлена самой себе. В результате подобная жизнь довела ее не только до алкогольной зависимости, но и до наркотиков. Первый раз в клинику Лили попала в возр

    5. Описание персонажа
    Парень знает себе цену, с самооценкой у него всё в порядке. Всегда говорит прямо и искренне, не в его правилах распускать сплетни за спиной человека. Дружба для него превыше всего, он пойдёт на всё чтобы сохранить старые дружеские отношения. Любит командовать людьми, но сам никогда не подчиняется, ну или почти не подчиняется. Всегда есть исключения. В душе он очень добрый и романтичный, что о нем нельзя сказать, глядя на него. Он очень эмоциональный человек, поэтому часто реагирует на ситуацию, слишком несдержанно.
    Хобби: игра на гитаре, сочинение песен.
    Вредная привычка: курение
    Если желаете, можете внести какие-нибудь измерения, я не буду против. Но не слишком кардинальные.

    6. Секрет

    7. Для чего он вам
    С Флорэнс он знаком более 5 лет, долгое время они дружили, и эта дружба превратилась в любовь. Около 2х лет они уже встречаются. Но каких-то грандиозных планов на будущее они не строят, они просто наслаждаются тем, что есть сегодня. Частенько между ними вспыхивают ссоры, которые могут длиться неделю и даже больше, но на примирение долгое время не идут, т.к. каждый слишком горд собой. Но все-таки долгое расставание заканчивается примирением.

    Энн и Нейт познакомились в университете. Парню понравилась милая и заводная блондинка с красивыми форумами, но увы Энн не отвечала ему взаимностью, но для Басса нету нечего не возможного, и в тоге он изнасиловал милую девушку. Позже Нейт понимает что никто не воспламеняет его сильнее чем Кроуфорд, и начинает за ней всячески ухаживать, и вскоре девушка прощает обиды, и спит с Бассом, только уже по собственной воле, после этого у парочки завязываются странные отношения, на людях они ведут себя как будто ненавидят друг друга, дело даже доходит до драк, но позже их ненависть перерастает в страсть..

    Уверенный, сосредоточенный. Всегда добивается своей цели. Ненавидит поражения в любом деле. Увлекается спортом. Имеет не мало поклонниц - девушек, которые готовы бегать за ним и выполнять его желания. Обожает шумные места - вечеринки, клубы. Старается всегда быть в центре внимания. Никогда не поднимет руку на девушку, джентльмен. Отношения со своей младшей сестрой - Кэтрин - испортил еще до поступления в университет. Придя с вечеринки в нетрезвом состоянии он сделал то, за что до сих пор не может себя простить. Хотя с недавних пор они поладили: он пытается угодить Кэт во всем, заглаживая свою вину.

    cross-connect: Vivid Hummingbird Close-ups Reveal Their Incredible BeautyWhen it comes to birds, the terms “strong” or “beautiful” might inspire images of fierce eagles or decadent tropical parrots. But both of these birds will certainly find strong contender in hummingbirds, which possess a unique sort of delicate beauty and a mastery of avian maneuvers like no other. We created this list of 20 stunning hummingbird photos to show you just how beautiful they can be.Capturing a photo of a hummingbird in flight with clearly focused wings can be very difficult, as some varieties are capable of beating their wings up to 52 times a second. This gives them the ability to hover and fly backwards – something that few other birds can do and that none have mastered the way the hummingbird has.  Boredpanda

    Arctic and Climate: Permafrost Sample Contains 4 Giant Viruses

    In less-than-comforting news, scientists recently isolated a fourth giant virus in a sample of 30,000-year-old Siberian permafrost and say that this shows that potentially pathogenic viruses could be regenerated in the Arctic by melting. The team recently reported their findings in the journal PNAS.

    The new virus is called  Mollivirus sibericum. In the same permafrost sample, scientists previously found the following serious viruses: Mimivirus, Pandoraviridae, and Pithovirus, as a release noted.

    Mollivirus is roughly spherical and has not seen before among the three virus families previously recorded. Finding four viruses within this one section of permafrost indicates that giant viruses aren’t unusual and have great variety. It also shows that several types of virus can remain alive in permafrost for long periods. These types of viruses also have a large range of means of replication.

    One section of permafrost from the Arctic has been found to contain a fourth giant virus, and researchers say this means that there is a possibility that viruses will be released by melting.  (Photo : Flickr: Mike Beauregard)

    Doodling can seem like a frivolous symptom of a scatterbrain. Or maybe it’s a scary prospect because you feel like you can’t draw. But it’s time to let both of those ideas go.

    Shelley Paul and Jill Gough, two learning design educators, have taken the call to doodle into their classrooms. Armed with research and some colored pencils, they’ve come out with some hands-on experience that really illustrates why doodling is the jam.

              Importance of a Positive Self-Image        

    In today's world it can be difficult to build and maintain a positive self-image - however, it is both possible and important to do so. Unfortunately, studies have shown that significant populations of women, as well as some men, are dissatisfied with their bodies and/or suffer from low self-confidence and self-esteem, which can have extremely detrimental effects on relationships. Building a positive self-image can benefit your life as an individual as well as your relationships in many ways.

    For Individuals

    There are many factors that influence how individuals view themselves and their bodies. These factors can be biological, social, or psychological. Having a positive body image is important for many reasons, not the least of which is that it can improve an individual’s overall quality of life. There are many steps people can take towards improving their self-confidence and self-concept clarity (how clear they are about their own personality characteristics and preferences).

    For Couples

    Individuals’ self-concept can have very real effects on their relationships, particularly those that are romantic and/or sexual. Research has found that people with high self-concept clarity - people who are clear about who they are and what is important to them - report higher relationship satisfaction and commitment. There is a direct correlation between the level of people’s self-concept clarity and the level of intimacy they will invest in their relationships. Individuals with low self-confidence can have more difficulty forming intimate bonds with their partners, which can cause relationships to suffer.

    On the other hand, relationships benefit when both partners develop positive self-images. Individuals who have a healthy self-concept are often more open, expressive, and intimate with their significant others, which leads to more secure attachments. This is because when people perceive themselves as loveable and trustworthy, they will be more likely to openly and securely love and trust their partners.

    Being self-confident also has a positive effect on people’s satisfaction with their sexuality and sexual interactions. Pleasurable sexual activities require disclosure of private aspects of the self that people with poor body images are often uncomfortable with. People who are discontented with their bodies often experience sexual problems, such as the inability to orgasm, while individuals who are comfortable and secure with their bodies often find their sexual experiences to be more enjoying and fulfilling. Being confident and familiar with your body will improve almost any sexual experience.

    Research has proven that building a positive body image and having an overall healthy self-concept are important in creating intimate and fulfilling relationships. Exercising with your partner, eating healthy, and participating in activities you enjoy can all help to create better self-images and stronger relationships, which will lead to a happier life.

              15.08.17 21:00 Uhr - Nürnberg - SKATING POLLY        
    Tickets erhältlich unter: http://www.frankentipps.de/veranstaltung212516-tickets

    SKATING POLLY, das Stiefschwester-Duo aus Kelli Mayo und Peyton Bighorse, nennen ihre Musik gerne "ugly pop", hässlichen Pop, und das ist ja auch eine treffende Bezeichnung für Musik, die im einen Moment total süß und eingängig ist und in der im nächsten Moment Geschrei aus vollem Hals auf lärmige Gitarren trifft. Ein anderer passender Begriff dafür wäre schlicht Grunge, den sie für sich und ihre 21.- Jahrhundert-Teen-Angst ganz neu errungen haben - wie eine ganze Menge (tumblr-)Millennials mit ihnen. Und nach Nirvana, Mudhoney, Babes in Toyland, Hole klingen sie wirklich im einen Moment, und nach Kimya Dawson und Beat Happening im anderen.

    Als sie sich 2008 gründeten, war Kelli gerade mal 14 Jahre alt und Peyton 18, und 2011 kam schon ihr erstes Album raus: Taking Over The World. Sie wurden bald von einigen Punk/Indie-Größen unterstützt und
    gefeiert: Xene Cervenka von X hat ihr zweites Album, Lost Wonderfuls, produziert, und Klyph Scurlock (Flaming Lips) hat ihnen sein altes Drumset geschenkt, und Babes In Toyland haben sie mit auf ihre Revival-Europatour genommen. Inzwischen haben SKATING POLLY sich wirklich nonstop den Allerwertesten abgetourt und ihr drittes Album raus, Fuzz Steilacoom, das von Calvin Johnson (Beat Happening, K-Rec) produziert wurde und mit Veruca Salts Loouise Post und Nina Gordon haben sie an ihrer aktuellen EP namens New Trick gearbeitet. Und ganz neu dieses Jahr: Kurtis Mayo, ihr Bruder, darf jetzt als festes Bandmitglied mitspielen.

    It’s so weird that Daisy Ridley is eyeballing that Lara Croft role in the Tomb Raider reboot, like, sure Star Wars was really big but you can’t just be a beloved space hero in one franchise and also be a big name as some kind of combat archeologist. Who’s ever doubled up like that?

    Perfect gif usage.

    On Friday, US-backed forces succeeded in driving Islamic State militants from the town of Manbij, Syria. Residents immediately took to the streets to celebrate their newfound freedom, burning long black robes and shearing off the unruly beards they had been forced to wear during the occupation. Removing the radical group from the city was a lengthy process.

              Quelques souvenirs de 2011        
    Note : Blogger m'a demandé de retirer les liens MP3 qui figuraient dans cet article. C'est un peu embêtant, mais ça ne doit pas nous enlever notre belle humeur pour autant. Et puisqu'on ne peut rien faire contre Pascal Nègre et ses sbires, j'ai remplacé les mp3 par des liens de streaming vers Youtube, Bancdamp, Soundcloud ou autres. Toutes mes confuses, et bonne écoute tout de même !


    Ce blog n'est que la partie émergée de notre activité. Infrasons officie en effet parallèlement comme agence de notation musicale, distribuant les bons et les mauvais points aux artistes et évaluant chaque année leur crédibilité sur les marchés financiers. Apôtres des politiques de rigueur, nous devons lutter inlassablement contre les concepts albums prétentieux, les instrumentations indigestes, les solos interminables et toutes les boursouflures qui écorchent nos tympans.

    Lorsque l'on se voit investir d'une telle mission, la sévérité doit s'imposer, y compris vis-à-vis des élèves doués mais par trop insouciants. Ainsi, cette année, nous n'avons pas hésité à sanctionner des artistes certes sympathiques mais qui n'ont pas fournis les efforts nécessaires pour figurer dans notre sélection (Strange Boys, Horrors, Girls,...).

    La Grande-Bretagne voit quant à elle sa note souveraine dégradée ; une décision logique puisqu'elle n'a pas tenu compte des multiples avertissements que nous lui avions adressée. L'appauvrissement de la scène musicale anglaise s'est poursuivi et l'écart avec les États-Unis (plus particulièrement la région de San-Francisco) ne cesse de se creuser. Seules des mesures drastiques semblent pouvoir remettre cette nation sur le droit chemin.

    Que l'on se rassure, certains éléments montrent encore l'exemple et conservent, en toute justice, leur note A-A-A (Bare Wires, Go ! Team, Liechtenstein, Ty Segall, Tim Cohen, ...), preuve que l'effort, le talent, voire l'audace paient toujours. Rendons hommage donc aux musiciens qui ont su traverser cette année de crise sans dériver de cap. Cet article doit contribuer à les remercier en listant les chansons que nous avons préférées en 2011, comme nous avions pu le faire en 2007, 2008, 2009 et 2010.



    ♫ Alabama Shakes - I Found You
    (extrait de Alabama Shakes / site)
    A force d'écouter du Garage, on oublie qu'il y a aussi des gens qui savent chanter, et bien. Bon, évidemment, je force un peu le trait, mais toujours est-il qu'il est rafraîchissant d'aller voir ce qui se fait ces temps-ci en matière de Soul ; notamment chez les fabuleux Alabama Shakes. D'ailleurs, pour faire un bon groupe de Soul, ce n'est pas bien sorcier : on met une grosse mama noire au chant et hop, on tient la formule magique.


    ♫ Allah-las - Catamaran
    (extrait du 45t Catamaran/Long Journey / site)
    Les Allah-las doivent autant leur présence ici à leur nom (le plus bête jamais vu depuis les Zyklon Bees) qu'à leur excellente chanson «Catamaran» (sorte de «Roadrunner» du marin). Nul doute qu'une fatwa sera bientôt prononcée contre le groupe chapeauté par Nick Waterhouse et qu'il devra se terrer quelque part en Alaska pour échapper aux vengeurs du Prophète. Heureusement, il nous restera toujours cet excellent disque pour penser à eux.


    ♫ Bare Wires - Back on the Road
    (extrait de Cheap Perfume)
    Pacal Nègre nous a parlé longuement de Bare Wires cette année (lire l'article ici). Inutile donc de vous les présenter à nouveau. Retenons simplement que leur nouvel album (Cheap Perfume) est dans la veine du précédent et contient encore quelques morceaux irrésistibles comme «Back in the Road». Ajoutons simplement que, selon une étude Insee, 68% des meilleurs riffs de guitare actuels sont signés Bare Wires (étude réalisée en décembre 2011 sur un panel représentatif de 800 consommateurs).



    ♫ Black Lips - New Direction
    (extrait de Arabia Mountain / site)
    Groupe potache s'il en est, les Black Lips ont confié la production de leur dernier album à Mark Ronson, personnage dont on a toujours apprécié le travail ici (Amy Winehouse, Lily Allen, Candie Payne,...). Même si cette association ne semble pas faire l'unanimité, le résultat me paraît assez réussi. C'est en effet rafraîchissant de pouvoir entendre du Garage avec une production sonore soignée. Des morceaux comme «Raw Meat» ou «New Direction» n'en sortent que grandis.


    ♫ Les Bof ! - Ils vont tuer le R'n'R
    (extrait de Nous sommes les Bof ! / site)
    Comme leur nom ne l'indique pas, les Bof ! sont Écossais ... mais avec un chanteur marseillais ! Après s'être fait remarqués en 2007 avec un 45t contenant des chansons aussi marrantes que «J'ai perdu mon mojo», ils reviennent cette année avec un album plus Yéyé que jamais. Avec son riff inspiré du «1977» des Clash et son titre revendicateur, «Ils vont tuer le R'n'R» a évidemment attiré notre attention.



    ♫ Charles Bradley - Stay Away
    (extrait de la compilation de reprises de Nirvana Nevermind / site)
    Si l'on mange si mal dans les cantines scolaires et dans les restaurants inter-entreprises, c'est peut-être parce que les chefs cuisiniers travaillant dans ces établissements ne sont pas faits pour ce métier. Leur vocation est ailleurs. C'est ce qu'a compris Charles Bradley à 51 ans, après une vie passée derrière les fourneaux ; laissant son tablier, il a décidé de devenir chanteur Soul à plein temps. Avec une voix à la James Brown et accompagné par les musiciens maison du label Daptone, il a estomaqué tout le monde cette année en proposant une reprise Soul d'un morceau de Nirvana. Soyons honnête, l'originale n'était pas notre tasse de thé ; la reprise est le morceau de l'année.


    ♫ Tim Cohen (Magic Trick) - Daylight Moon
    (extrait de The Glad Birth of Love / site)
    Je soupçonne depuis un petit moment Tim Cohen de s'être cloné. Comment pourrait-il faire autrement pour sortir autant d'albums chaque année, que ce soit en solo ou avec les Fresh & Onlys. Saluons donc son clone n°06B43 pour son superbe album The Glad Birth of Love. Un numéro de série tellement productif qu'il pousse le vice jusqu'à agréger plusieurs chansons dans le même morceau, comme sur ce «Daylight Moon» qui démarre tout doucement avant de s'échapper dans de magnifiques envolées vaporeuses.



    ♫ Cults - Bumper
    (extrait de Cults / site)
    J'ai beaucoup hésité avant d'intégrer les Cults dans la sélection 2011. Premièrement car leur album est très en-deçà des espoirs suscités l'an passé par les premières chansons. Deuxièmement car le morceau «Bumper» n'est qu'un plagiat du «Give Him a Great Big Kiss» des Shangri-las ; et c'est justement là l'aspect délicat : avec une telle chanson pour modèle, la copie est forcément efficace, fût-elle en-deçà de l'originale. Nous serons donc magnanime cette année, eu égard à la jeunesse du groupe. Mais attention : les Cults devront impérativement tenir compte de nos mises en garde à l'avenir, sous peine de se voir décerner un avertissement conduite.


    ♫ Davila 666 - Esa nuna nenca regreso
    (extrait de Tan bajo)
    Le côté brouillon des morceaux de Davila 666 a toujours eu tendance à me rebuter. Mais lorsque les Porto-ricains prennent la bête par les cornes et s'astreignent à une vraie discipline, on ne peut que s'incliner devant le résultat. Chœurs entraînants, rythmes martelant, ce «Esa nuna nenca regreso» doit leur servir de boussole pour leurs prochains enregistrements.


    ♫ Friends - I'm His Girl
    Chez Infrasons, on a toujours une grande marmite de goudron chaud saupoudré de plumes. Nous la maintenons à bonne température, prêts à la déverser sur tout ce qui ressemble de près ou de loin à de la Pop des années 80. Et pourtant, Dieu sait si nous aimons ce morceau new-yorkais branchouille, son clip estampillé «Années Reagan» et le groove qui se dégage de l'ensemble. Quelque chose me dit que ces Friends referont parler d'eux très prochainement.


    ♫ Go ! Team - Ready to Go Steady
    (extrait de Rolling Blackouts / site)
    A chaque nouvelle sortie d'un disque de Go ! Team, on se frotte les mains. Car on est sûr d'y trouver 4 ou 5 très bons morceaux et ce mélange inimitable de Funk, de son Girl-groups et de Hip-hop. S'il ne s'agit pas de leur meilleur album, Rolling Blackouts ne nous a pas déçu, avec notamment ce charmant «Ready to Go Steady».


    ♫ Human Eye - Impregnate the Martian Queen, part 2
    (extrait de They Came from the Sky)
    La claque sonore de l'année ! Evoquant aussi bien Love et que les Stooges, ce «Impregnate the Martian Queen, part 2» semble bel et bien venir d'une planète rouge et volcanique, balayée par des tourbillons de poussière et d'hématite. Le résultat est aussi terrifiant qu'entraînant.


    ♫ Hunx & his Punkx - Lovers Lane
    (extrait de Too Young to Be in Love)
    Avec Hunx et ses Punkx, il ne faut pas s'arrêter aux pochettes de disques, d'un goût pour le moins douteux. Car il s'agit avant tout d'un excellent groupe oscillant entre le Glam, la Power Pop et le Rhythm'n'blues, capable d'évoquer les excellents Detroit Cobras sur le morceau «Lovers Lane».


    ♫ Jacuzzi Boy - Automatic Jail
    (extrait de Glazin')
    L'excellente surprise de l'année ! Avec Glazin', le groupe de Miami nous offre une myriade de perles Power Pop plus enthousiasmantes les unes que les autres. Difficile de n'en retenir qu'une, mais «Automatic Jail» ressemble tellement à un morceaux des Buzzcocks qu'il aurait été criminel de laisser l'année passer sans vous le faire écouter.


    ♫ Liechtenstein - Meantime
    (extrait du simple Meantime)
    Les Suédoises de Liechtenstein sont une valeur sûre. Sobres, appliquées, mais surtout inspirées, elles parviennent toujours à se glisser dans nos sélections annuelles. «Meantime» laisse percevoir un groupe qui se rapproche de plus en plus d'Electrelane et de sa beauté glaciale.


    ♫ Limiñanas - (I've Got) Trouble in Mind (écoute ici)
    (extrait du 45t (I've Got) Trouble in Mind)
    Nos Perpignanais préférés nous avaient laissé un excellent souvenir l'an passé avec un album des plus réussis. Leur dernier 45 tours s'inscrit dans la même lignée avec des références de plus en plus marquées au Gainsbourg période «Bonnie and Clyde». L'alternance du chant en français et en anglais participe évidemment à cet effet très Zip ! Shebam ! Pow ! Blop ! Wizz !


    ♫ Paul Messis - The Problem With Me
    (extrait de The Problem With Me / site)
    Paul Messis a de la chance : il joue depuis quelques années avec plusieurs des meilleurs musiciens anglais. Autrefois bassiste des excellents Fallen Leaves, il est accompagné depuis quelques temps par d'anciens membres des Embrooks et de Higher State, soit ce qui se fait de mieux de l'autre côté de la Manche en matière de rock 60s. Mais ce n'est pas le tout d'être bien accompagné ; encore faut-il savoir composer de jolies ballades byrdsiennes, pleines de guitares carillonnantes à 12 cordes. Ce que Paul Messis fait à la perfection.


    ♫ Oh Sees - Carrion Crawler
    (extrait de Carrion Crawler/The Dream / site)
    Autres représentants de l'inépuisable scène san-franciscaine, les Oh Sees n'avaient encore jamais eu l'honneur de figurer dans une sélection annuelle Infrasons. La faute nous en incombe car ils publient des disques à un rythme presque aussi soutenu que les Fresh & Onlys. Les Oh Sees sont certainement le groupe le plus perché de toute cette scène néo-psychédélique californienne avec une rythmique répétitive, hypnotique, syncopée qui les rend reconnaissables entre mille.


    ♫ Pendentif - Riviera
    (extrait du 45t Pendentif)
    Déjà présentés il y a quelques mois sur ce blog (lire l'article ici), les Bordelais de Penedentif nous ont enchanté cette année avec une Pop rafraîchissante et estivale, dans un esprit proche de celui de La Femme. Un regret malgré tout : la fille qui tient le micro sur «Riviera» ne semble pas être la chanteuse principale. Dommage, car le groupe perd largement de son intérêt sur les morceaux chantés par des voix masculines.


    ♫ Pushy Parents - He's My Saturday (écoute ici)
    (extrait du 45t Secret Secret)
    Les Pushy Parents ne sont pas un véritable groupe, mais plutôt un projet de studio suédois regroupant la chanteuse des Andersen Tapes et différents pontes de la Pop scandinave (compositeurs, arrangeurs,...). «Secret Secret», la chanson phare, a tout pour devenir un tube phénoménal, mais nous avons plutôt choisi de vous faire écouter «He's My Saturday» et son rythme Northern Soul emmené par une ligne de percussions des plus réussies.


    ♫ Ty Segall - Goodbye Bread
    (extrait de Goodbye Bread / site)
    Il y a un an, nous évoquions la ressemblance amusante entre la voix de Ty Segall et celle de John Lennon. Sur le morceau «Goodbye Bread», c'est plutôt avec Alex Chilton et Big Star que nous établirons un rapprochement. Mais trêve de comparaisons, retenons surtout que son dernier album contient plusieurs superbes chansons, davantage à mon sens que sur le précédent ; et que le chien sur la pochette a une bonne tête.


    ♫ Ana Tijoux - 1977
    (extrait de 1977 / site)
    «1977» fait figure de curiosité au sein de cette sélection. Ce n'est pas tous les jours en effet qu'Infrasons vous a présenté des rappeuses franco-chiliennes. Mais il faut un début à tout. Avec son instrumentation hispanisante, son rythme tout en arrêts/redémarrages et l'excellente voix d'Ana Tijoux, vous ne pourrez qu'aimer ce morceau.


    ♫ Triptides - Going Under
    (extrait du 45t Going Under / Bandcamp)
    Nous fondons énormément d'espoirs sur les Triptides, groupe américain qui marie avec bonheur Pop 60s et Surf. Vous ne trouverez toutefois pas les Triptides sur les plages surchauffées du mois d'août, bondées de touristes et de vendeurs de churros. Vous les verrez plutôt hors saison, sur des côtes désertes, recouvertes d'une brume mélancolique. Le timbre voilé du chanteur nous ferait même penser à celui des Zombies, orfèvres Pop des années 60. A noter que le 45t Going under/Outlaw vient d'être publié par Croque Macadam, nouveau label français qui chapeaute également les recommandables Guillotines et Spadassins.


    ♫ Vivian Girls - I Heard You Say
    (extrait de Share the Joy)
    Que l'on ne s'y trompe, Infrasons n'est pas un supporteur inconditionnel des Vivian Girls. Malgré toute la sympathie que peuvent susciter ces trois louloutes cherchant à mêler le son des Shangri-las et des Jesus & Mary Chain, leurs enregistrements nous paraissent encore perfectibles. Toutefois, bâtis autour de mélodies ambitieuses et de chœurs travaillés, certains morceaux nous obligent à déposer les armes et à reconnaître leur talent, à l'instar de ce «I Heard You Say», chant de noël parfait pour ces périodes hivernales.


    ♫ Nick Waterhouse - Is That Clear
    (extrait du 45t Is That Clear / site)
    Nick Waterhouse est l'un des personnages les plus étonnants du moment. Alors que tous ses amis san-franciscains semblent obsédés par le Garage psychédélique des années 60, Nick a choisi d'aller plus loin et de voyager dans la décennie précédente. Costume impeccable, lunettes à gros montant : Nick a tout d'un Buddy Holly moderne. Ses enregistrements ne sont pas en reste puisqu'ils évoquent un Eddie Cochran jouant avec les Sonics. Une vraie curiosité.


    ♫ Wax Idols - All Too Human
    (extrait du 45t All Too Human/William Says / site)
    Encore un groupe de San Francisco, un de plus ! Rien ne sert de lutter, c'est bien là-bas que tout se passe. Mais aussi foisonnante soit-elle, la scène locale reste un petit monde puisque la chanteuse du groupe a auparavant joué avec les sus-cités Bare Wires et Hunx et ses Punkx. Au-delà de ses influences Garage, Wax idols dégage un parfum gothique et légèrement New Wave qui n'est pas sans évoquer Siouxsie et les Banshees.


    ♫ White Fence - A Pearl Is Not A Diamond
    (extrait de Is Growing Faith)
    Déjà encensé ici l'an passé, White Fence nous a encore offert l'un des meilleurs albums de l'année (Is Growing Faith), toujours avec ce son bricolé, usé mais charmant. La ballade psychédélique «A Pearl Is Not A Diamond» est à ce titre la mieux produite des chansons figurant sur l'album ; l'une des plus jolies également. Et puis, un morceau sur les perles ne pouvait pas passer inaperçu sur un blog ayant pour slogan «Quelques perles sous un océan agité» !


    Bonus 2010

    ♫ La Femme - Sur la planche
    (extrait du maxi Le Podium#1 / Bandcamp)
    En guise de conclusion, rappelons que le meilleur morceau de l'année est en réalité une chanson sortie ... en toute fin d'année dernière ! Alors oui, c'est vrai, je triche un peu, mais tous les prétextes sont bons pour réécouter «Sur la planche» et son Surf irrésistible. Je vous renvoie à l'article écrit sur le groupe en janvier (en cliquant ici).

    The stern-faced champion vaulter and internet phenomenon talks to THR while on the town in New York City.




    When it comes to Olympic gymnastics, McKayla Maroney means business: recall the U.S. power vaulter's famously stern, fiercely intimidating expression while going for gold at the London games. Her take-no-prisoners pout has resulted in comparisons to Victoria "Posh Spice" Beckham as well as 15 minutes of viral internet fame on the amusing blog "mckayla is not impressed."

    A web meme was born when a New York-based digital designer launched the site on Tumblr last week, creating a stir online with superimposed photos of Maroney's less-than-enthused reaction to losing the gold medal in vault finals. (She had to settle for silver.) It exploded with examples of Maroney not being impressed: sulking in front of NBC's 30 Rock headquarters and in the background while Beyonce flaunted her baby bump, among others.

    On Tuesday night at the New York premiere party for Sparkle, we encountered a different, more relaxed Maroney, who could not wipe the grin from her face as she took photos with the film's stars including Jordin Sparks and other famous partygoers such as Russell Simmons and Gabourey Sidibe.

    "No, I'm not but it appears when I'm on TV," Maroney, 16, told THR when asked whether she's as "stern" on the inside as she is during competitions. "I think it looks like I am. Sometimes I scare myself a little bit. I'm just really focused and really serious, I guess, and I think it's really funny, that Tumblr. It makes them and me laugh all the time."

    PHOTOS: The Superficial Person's Guide to the Olympics

    A swarm of cameras descended upon Maroney and teammates Jordyn Wieber, Aly Raisman and Kyla Ross as they sat together at The Yard at Soho Grand. (All-around gymnastics gold-medalist Gabby Douglas skipped the event.) Earlier that day, the entire crew made appearances on the Today show as well as the Late Show With David Letterman, where the curmudgeonly host commended Maroney for competing with a broken toe. (See: video of the interview here.)

    "Just being there at the Olympics you kind of just take in every single moment," Maroney, wearing a black cocktail dress, told THR. "You really try to remember everyone and there were so many special moments and so many great times and just to be there with my best friends and there with the Olympic team, um, we had an amazing time and I hope I never forget it."

    Next up for the girls: the Kellogg's Tour of Gymnastics Champions, kicking off next month. Also, said Raisman, "2016 is definitely in the back of our minds."

    Echoed Maroney of going for the gold in Rio de Janeiro: "Definitely. I really hope that is something that I can fulfill. I didn't do everything that I wanted to do in this Olympics and hopefully I'll be ready by then."

    Days after her facial reaction became a viral favorite, U.S. Olympic gymnast McKayla Maroney appears to have fully adopted her own meme.

    After settling for a silver medal in last Sunday's women's vault final, Maroney made waves with a pout that captured her second-place disappointment. That prompted the birth of the "McKayla Is Not Impressed" Tumblr, sporting the 16-year-old's signature expression toward situations outside of gymnastics.

    On Saturday, Maroney brought the "not impressed" air to her own Instagram account, posting a photo of her disappointment that a pool was closed.

    McKayla Maroney is a gold and silver Olympic medalist, and the 2011 World Vault Champion, and she recently taught Jenna Bush to dougie. Now she can add "Internet darling" to her already-impressive list of accomplishments.

    Maroney won the silver medal for Women's Vault after a disappointing fall during her second performance. During the medal ceremony, photographers captured the less-than-pleased look on her face. Buzzfeed even called it her "Did you really think I'd be happy with silver?" look. The photo was so fabulous that 28-year-old New Yorker Gavin Aloen decided it would make a hilarious meme. On August 7th, the "McKayla Is Not Impressed" Tumblr was born -- and we are so happy that it exists.

    Here is a sampling of things that do not impress McKayla Maroney:

    McKayla is not impressed by The Spice Girls.


    McKayla is not impressed by Drake and Chris Brown.


    McKayla is not impressed by Hillz in the War Room.


    McKayla is not impressed by the men of "Magic Mike."


    McKayla is not impressed by the Mars Rover landing.


    McKayla is not impressed by the Sistine Chapel.

    The Tumblr eventually got back to Maroney herself via Twitter. Her reaction? She's impressed ... kind of.

    (Her tweet has since been taken down but was captured by Yahoo! News and Mashable.)

    Career

    Berglund began her career at a young age, gracing the small screen as a series regular on TLC's Hip Hop Harry. TV appearances also include Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader,[5] and America's Next Producer. Berglund also appeared in the indie film, Bye Bye Benjamin. Her commercial credits include campaigns for Old Navy, Hyundai, Bratz, McDonald's and Mattel, among others.[4] She has also appeared in print and modeling campaigns for Reebok and the Camarillo Academy of Performing Arts.[4] Berglund has been honored with many awards in dance for her lyrical contemporary, hip-hop, tap, and jazz techniques. Though she is equally versatile in these types of dance, her favorite style is contemporary — a blend of ballet and jazz.[6][7]

    Berglund stars as overly outgoing, bionic super-human Bree with lightning speed abilities, in the Disney XD live-action comedy series Lab Rats alongside co-stars: Tyrel Jackson Williams, Billy Unger, and Spencer Boldman. Bree is one of the three bionic teen siblings, who tries to navigate a "normal" world of school, friends and family, with the occasional bionic glitch.[5][7]

    Personal life

    A native of California, Berglund resides in Moorpark, California with her parents, Mark and Michelle Berglund, and younger sister, Kirra. Berglund has spend her 2012 summer vacation at Oʻahu to try new things and have fun. She is now a junior in Moorpark High School's independent study program. During shooting, Berglund often must be at the studio. In her spare time, she enjoys swimming, choreographing dance moves with her high school team, spending time with her sister, video editing, still photography and creating original films on her computer.[4][7]

              blue summer        
    you can enjoy this post if you hear this song
















    Unofficially, summer, came to an end. 
    And that's kind of sad cause I didn't get enough of it. Actually, I'll never be able to get enough of it. I spent all of my summer laughing, dancing and photographing. 
     For me, summer means Greece and summer in Greece means colors (especially the color blue. I think it's the ideal color for summer) beautiful sunsets, stunning (greek) places, new love stories, new friendships. 
    And the thing I love the most about summer is that you can spend a whole day wearing only your favorite swimsuit and a pair of sunglasses. 
    nothing more.nothing less

              Saudades do Meu Amor...        



    Oie flores,quanto tempo hehehe
    como agora sou uma menina trabalhadora chego em casa mais que morta e sem tempo,matando a saudades daqui,tambem quero fazer uma pequena declaraçao de amor pro meu amor AUHSUAH

    Sem tempo de nos falar,é tão dificil!

    Amor,Eu te amo''Ao infinito e além...''

    Pra sempre!





    ''Ele é tão doce, minha queda
    Derrete na minha boca até virar nada
    Isso me mantém, não consigo dormir
    Ele queima para ser verdade''

              Obrigado,eu sou o Garota Monstro        
    ''Eu sou aquela que quando ri, zomba!
    Eu sou aquela que nunca diz a verdade!
    Eu sou  aquela que finge bem!
    Aquela  que nunca deveria estar com vc.
    Sempre fui o mau,jamais serei o bem.
    É somente assim que sou vista,é somente assim que serei em seus olhos:
    Um monstro!''

    Hoje eu estou assim,de maL com a vida,porque dias felizes sao impossiveis pra mim.Nunca estara bem,ate um dia eu parti.



    ''Eu não pude ser sua amiga
    Meu mundo era muito instável
    Talvez você tenha visto o fim
    Mas você nunca foi capaz
    De me manter respirando
    Como a água que se eleva outra vez
    Antes de eu escapar

    E eu disse que eu não podia ficar
    Você soube como difícil pode ser
    Continuar acreditando em mim
    Quando tudo e todo mundo
    Tornam-se meus inimigos e quando
    Não há nada mais que você possa fazer
    Eu irei culpar você
    Não é o caminho que eu quero estar
    Eu só espero que no fim você veja
    É a Ofélia em mim

    Eu sou sua Ofélia
    Minhas meia-calças provam minhas virtudes
    Eu estou livre para atacar
    Mas eu não quero feri-lo
    Se eu nado ou afundo
    Isso não é de seu interesse agora
    Como pôde você possivelmente achar
    Você teve o poder para saber como
    Me manter respirando

    Estudos mostram:
    Meninas inteligentes são mais deprimidas
    Porque elas sabem o que o mundo realmente é
    Não pense por um segundo que faz isso melhor
    Quando você a senta e fala a ela
    "Tudo vai dar certo"
    Ela sabe que na sociedade ela é
    Ou um demônio ou um anjo sem meios-termos
    Ela fala na terceira pessoa
    Assim ela pode esquecer que ela sou eu''

              Comment on DGRadio: 08.14.2013 by Bruben        
    Hello Robot Panic crew, First time listener and love it Three Questions: Do you guys want to see another Metal Gear Solid game after Ground Zeroes/Phantom Pain, MG Remake's aside, MGS6: Mother of Patriots(focusing on the story of The Boss), discuss? Do you think this game will have some sort of interactivity and/or cross-save with it's vita version and some sort of feature interaction with the Prequel game? I have tasted beer before but find they all taste terrible, are there any decent to good beers for maybe a barbecue or nice dinner? Thanks and Stay Golden and Game on Undergroundgamer.tumblr.com
              Nail As Old As Time: Gelish and Morgan Taylor Beauty and the Beast Collection        
    image

    I’ve had a strong emotional attachment to Disney, especially the princesses, for as long as I can remember, and anything that goes to reignite that feeling for the fairytales once again, I welcome wholeheartedly. Since the release of the live-action version of Beauty and the Beast, you positively have noticed the world is going a bit Tale As Old As Time-crazy at the moment. It’s everywhere! A lot of brands grabbed the opportunity and used the theme as an additional selling point for their products – I’m talking about makeup, clothing collection, candles… and for the world’s leading gel brand, Gelish, and its sister brand, Morgan Taylor, it’s nail polishes of course.

    image

    To celebrate the dawn of spring and Emma Watson as Belle (ahh the perfect choice!), the brands launched a seven-piece collection each with shades inspired by elements found in both the original and new film. Enchanted Patina makes this collection extra magical, it’s a duo chrome shimmer that is somewhere between a coppery gold to a pink shade that can be worn as is or on top of the other shades to create a shimmery antique look. 

    image

    Other shades include: Be Our Guest, an almost fuchsia pink shade; Gaston On and On, a cool light blue shade; Days in the Sun, a buttery-yellow shade reminiscent of Belle’s iconic gown; Potts of Tea, an ivory white shade with pink shimmers; The Last Petal, a deep velvety red shimmer color and; Plumette with Excitement, a light pink crème color.

    image

    It has nice mixture of pastels and bright colors, essentially offering a neat little capsule that’s wearable pretty much all year round. To me, the shades that represent Belle are Days in the Sun and The Last Petal, but Gaston On and On has got to be my favorite from this bunch. Enchanted Patina (on its own) is a close second.

    image

    I watched Beauty and the Beast in Taiwan (there’s a travel vlog!). I was traveling with my sister and cousins and we decided to do another first: watch a movie in another country. It was awesome and I found myself smiling almost the whole time, except for that heart-crushing scene near the end. You’ve seen the movie, you know what I mean! Anyway, back to the polishes, I got my “nails did” using Gelish before the trip and it’s like the 14th day today and they stayed chip and peel-free. Awesome!

    image

    Hello Erika! I love that we’re both wearing Belle’s signature color.

    The limited-edition Beauty and the Beast collection is available at all Beauty and Butter, Posh Nails, Nail Cocktales, Nailaholics and other leading salons nationwide, including Kallista in S’Maison, Conrad Hotel as of this post’s publish date.

    What do you think of this Beauty and the Beast collection? Any favorite shade?

    Les Ludologues


    Manuel, Hadrien, Sélène et Fanny poursuivent leurs expériences podcastiques avec la diffusion bimensuelle d'une émission consacrée au jeu sous toutes ses formes : Ludologies. Du jeu vidéo au jeu de rôle, en passant par le jeu de plateau, nos ludologues interrogent des auteurs et des créateurs de jeux à seule fin de comprendre l'essence même de l'attitude ludique.


    Si vous ne connaissez pas encore Ludologies, je vous conseille vivement d'aller y jeter une oreille. En plus, leur dernière épisode est consacré au jeu et à l'intime avec une invité prestigieuse, bien connue des auditeurs de La Cellule : Morgane Reynier.

    Notez également que si vous souhaitez rencontrer Morgane, vous le pourrez, à Paris, en vous rendant à la Bibliothèque Rilke, le 19 Novembre 2016. En effet, elle participe une table ronde sur "la poésie et le jeu de rôle".

    De retour Sur la route de Chrysopée


    Ils sont au moins 300 Sur la route de Chrysopée, c'est le chiffre annoncé par Morgane Reynier sur Facebook. Ce jeu de rôle épistolaire indépendant avait été retiré de la vente en format papier suite à une erreur sur la fixation de son prix. En effet, Morgane avait tout bonnement oublié de compter la part des impôts dans le calcul de sa marge. Jusque là, sa rémunération servait donc uniquement à payer les impôts. 


    A présent, le jeu est réimprimé et à nouveau disponible grâce à une légère augmentation de son prix.  Seulement 5 euros de plus, ce qui passe le jeu de 20 à 25 euros... 25 euros... c'est le prix des grands jeux !

    Libreté est disponible sur Ulule


    Pour 25 euros, justement vous allez pouvoir mettre la main sur le nouveau jeu de rôle de Vivien Féasson : Libreté. Véritable suite de Perdus sous la Pluie, Libreté vous propose d'incarner les survivants de l'averse, des enfants qui tentent de rebâtir une société sur le seul modèle qu'ils connaissent, celui d'une cours de récré. Le jeu est actuellement en phase de financement participatif sur Ulule.


    25 euros ! C'est le prix du "chef" qui comprend Libreté en version papier et PDF plus divers améliorations. Je vous dis souvent que soutenir La Cellule, c'est bien sûr faire des dons pour que le site perdure, mais c'est aussi et surtout soutenir les auteurs indépendants qui font vivre le podcast en achetant et en jouant aux jeux qu'ils produisent. Vous avez donc jusqu'au Jeudi 8 Décembre pour soutenir notre Vivien national en finançant sa propre Libreté.

    Tumblr Serial Râlistes


    Depuis quelques temps sur Facebook fleurissent mêmes en tout genre sur le jeu de rôle traditionnel. On les retrouve réunis sur le tumblr Serial Râlistes. Mais qui sont ces râlistes... personne ne le sait.


    Probablement, Gaël Sacré, Jérôme S, Frédéric Sintès ou Alban le C... Bref, tous ces salopards de narrativistes... Ces empêcheurs de tourner en rond qui osent faire la critique du jeu de rôle traditionnel et qui osent faire des critiques négatives... des naysayers... (cf. petite chanson dans la news audio).


    Ce n'est pas parce qu'on fait la critique et même parfois la caricature d'un média ou d'une œuvre qu'on ne l'aime pas ou qu'on n'aime pas ses auteurs. Critiquer quelque chose ce n'est jamais lui nuire. Les mêmes et les critiques les plus vifs se portent le plus souvent sur des œuvres majeures ou mainstream. Aussi le fait qu'il existent toutes sortes de controverses et de critiques négatives au sujet du jeu de rôle est, à mon avis, une preuve de bonne santé.

    La Conférence de Maxime Victor sur le Grandeur Nature


    Puisqu'on parle de naysayers, j'en profite pour vous signalez que Maxime Victor, membre actif de La Cellule et bienfaiteur du jeu de rôle indépendant, a été invité, dans le cadre des GNiales 2016, à animer une conférence passionnante sur la gestion des émotions dans le jeu de rôle grandeur nature !


    Selon lui les émotions ressenties au cours d'une partie de jeu de rôle grandeur nature ne sont pas feintes, mais belles et bien authentiques. Y a-t-il matière à relancer le débat sur les dangers du jeu de rôle grandeur nature ? Pas vraiment, mais une choses est sûres, les émotions nécessitent une gestion particulière de la part des joueurs et des organisateurs. 


    Les enregistrements de cette conférence et de toutes les conférences des GNiales 2016, bien que parasités par quelques bruits de fond, devraient être rendus publics sur le site Electro-GN avant la fin de l'année.

              THAT'S A PROBLEMATIC TITLE        
    okay, several questions have been floated at me regarding wot i fink about gender issues, etc. and i figured well i do have the word "genderless" on my sidebar so i ought to at least explain what i mean by that rather than spit a tumblresque EDUCATE YOURSELF SHITLORD at you and be done with it. by the way when i was first learning the ins and outs back in like 2004 that really was the recommended way to deal with strangers, friends and family asking you questions. It's not my problem to educate you about this, it's yours, fuck off and google it!

    first up just so we can get the basics out of the way: i'm not talking about biological sex here. i have XX sex chromosomes, normal female secondary sex characteristics, no chest hair here. i'm not denying that this here meatshell is a female-type one rather than any theoretical "neutral" type (i dunno, like a genetically modified construct shell or something.) i'm on about gender, as in, the social roles expected of men and women respectively. this is what people mean when they throw around "gender is a social construct" - they mean there's no brain difference between men and women that makes us behave in "masculine" or "feminine" ways, just differences in our upbringings and culture. (some people are using it wrong because they confuse gender with sex, but w/ev.) i'm of this opinion too, which makes me very unpopular with some people who are invested in the concept of having been born with a "male brain" or a "female brain" for whatever reason. [there's some cool recent neurological research relevant here also.]

    having got that out of the way, i have no problem whatsoever with people who are fine with their gender or the concept in general. if you wanna behave in line with the social role you're prescribed and the ways you're expected to behave, you do dah. same if you wanna take on the other role cause you identify deeply with that gender. i don't think doing these things makes you "wrong" or "a bad person" or "oppressive" or whatever. i'm just one of the people that doesn't like either one. for this reason, i'm not a transman, as some people assumed (which is pretty strange honestly because i have tig ol' bitties that i don't try to hide and i wear bungloads of makeup and stuff, i'm not sure where you'd get the idea i was uncomfortable with a female body / considered myself a man unless it was "you do man things like coding and biohacking, you must really be a man" which is... er, a faulty conclusion with flawed premises, let's say.) sometimes expressing this set of opinions and preferences over and over is a bitch so i just go with the associated labels, which would largely be "agender" or "genderless". it's the same reason i refer to myself with "it" pronouns.

    speaking of these, i really honestly will not get my arse in a tangle if you don't use them. some people don't like neutral pronouns. some people find "it" to be dehumanising and would rather say "they". some people think the whole thing is stupid and will refer to me with female language cause of my obvious physical sex, and so will strangers who have no idea about what kind of thing i prefer. this is fine! it's just something i do to make myself feel better. i massively appreciate the people who do use the same language i do, but this is pretty much going (very far) out of your way to alter your normal writing methods as a kindness to me, so i'm not asking you all to. you don't have to worry if you see a text that talks about me "misgendering" me (that is, using different language than i prefer). it's not going to upset me or set anything bad going in my head. in fact, i don't google myself and will likely never see it.

    hopefully that more or less straightens people's questions/concerns out? hit the comments if not.

    Happiness, it seems, to me, consists of two things: first, in being where you belong, and second-and best-in comfortably going through everyday life, that is, having had a good night's sleep and not being hurt by new shoes. 
    -Theodor Fontane, German author (1819-1898)

    Happy Monday, August 7th, 2017!
    August 7 is the 219th day of the year. There are 146 days remaining until the end of the year.  
    Today's blog is a stream of consciousness blog. random thoughts on a Monday. 
    It is a rainy day here in New York. I find days like this to be turbulent. Rainy days actually do affect my entire outlook. I work through them, but trust me, it is hard! A friend posted on Facebook today, When I get slammed with a cold I really miss Mom. I can't visit her the way I need to, want to. Well, cold is clearing now. Mom duty begins. Thankful. Holding on tight.
    I know exactly what she means!
    Nothing seems to be going my way today. I, however, am not regretting or turning back.My horoscope tells me that I'm facing a time of challenging communications, especially in the realms of work and money. It goes on to tell me that creativity is flowing thick and fast, but it will be harder than usual to be heard. I hope that is not the case! It also goes on to tell me that today's planetary movement exerts an energy that might make me feel like my dreams are just out of reach. Aargh!  In addition to the weather, am fighting the flu and as I sat down to begin today's blog, I was listening to Barbara Fasano's CD, Written In The Stars.  

    Bette Midler and David Hyde Pierce entertaining the lucky ones who can afford a ticket
    It is a wonderful mellow CD to listen to on a day like today. Barbara happens to be one of my favorite singers in today's cabaret scene.
    There are many artists thriving here in New York City that are not known on a wider spectrum.

    It is all because of the times that we live in and the way that the entire sphere of entertainment is so fragmented.

    At another time, Barbara would have been a household name.
    with Natalie Douglas

    Another singer that would also have been a household name is Natalie Douglas. She and beau Billy Joe Young are celebrating twenty five years today. Love them both!
    Natalie is going to be a Mystery Guest in Richard Skipper Celebrates!
    One of these dates: September 10th, October 8th, December 5th.  You'll have to be there to find out which one!

    In the early days of Barbra Streisand's rise, for
    Liza in the 70s proving that Life really is a Cabaret
    example, there were 'talent scouts' who ventured into the many nightclubs, now called cabarets, seeking talent for the many TV shows that aired live here in New York.
    How I would love to go back to the days of Ed Sullivan in which a family (now also fragmented) would sit together on a Sunday night to see the eclectic mixed bag that Mr. Sullivan would present.From Avi Duvdevani: 42 years ago, that August of 1975, when Liza substituted for five weeks for GWEN VERDON, appearing in the Broadway run of the hit show, CHICAGO, opposite CHITA RIVERA.
    With only one week of rehearsal time and no public announcement, other than this announcement at each curtain: "Good evening ladies and gentlemen. At this performance, the role of Roxie Hart, normally played by Gwen Verdon .....will be played by LIZA MINNELLI!" And the audience went nuts)
    Liza played to standing-room audiences, garnering critical and public acclaim.
    Can you imagine?Donna Murphy is not as well known as Bette Midler outside of theater circles but she should be getting the same kind of response. She IS that good! I love her in the role and it is a shame that she is not getting the same kind of acclaim as Bette. Her vocals are so strong that a second CD should be made. Tickets are easier to get on the nights Donna is on. Do yourself a favor and treat yourself. You will thank me!

    My horoscope today also indicates that I may have extra money in my pocket.
    LL Cool J and Carol Channing on the Tonys several years ago bridging the past with the present
    I truly do not know what it means it have extra money in my pockets. I never have. However, I'm hopeful and if that ever does happen, I most assuredly would be a patron
    Looking forward to sharing a stage with Ben Rimalower on September 10th!
    of the arts.
    I am much happier sacrificing my own gratification for the satisfaction of others. I make a point to get together with close friends and loved  ones AT LEAST once a week.
    I am passionate about helping others. I am using the transit to get in touch with what I really desire, so that I am able to take appropriate steps toward achieving that. See, there are daily lessons to be gleaned from our horoscopes whether you believe them or not. I use my horoscopes as daily guidelines. It also tells me that the stars are working in my favor this week and I'm driven to try new things. I signed on, along with my producer Russ Woolley today with a new marketing firm to promote The Richard Skipper Celebrates Show. We will be utilizing them for our September show. If we see major results, we will utilize them all season. I'm really hopeful! It's time to branch out.

    We don't see things as they are, we see them as we are. - Anais Nin

    Thoughts are whirling around in my head and I know I need to change my outlook.

    Seven years ago, I was traveling all over the country as Carol Channing. Now, that is very much a part of my past.
    Doris, Dear
    I never desired to be called either a drag queen OR even a female impersonator. I liked to be called a tribute artist.
    However, today, I found an article that puts things in perspective for many. I reached out to my friend Doris Dear, for 'her' perspective. Doris Dear is going to be a Mystery Guest in one of my upcoming shows (see above with Natalie Douglas). You'll have to attend to find out which one. Perhaps we will discuss this!

    Well depends on who, I think. I never refer to my professional cabaret self as a drag queen. It reduces me to a bar maiden!
    I get marginalized enough for wearing a dress. I am an actor, have been professionally making my living that way for 38 years now.
    To reduce me to that is not what I want suddenly because I wear a dress for some of my shows.
    But then again, saying you do drag immediately puts it in a  place that people understand.
    Female Impersonator always makes me think you are impersonating someone specifically
    like Cher or Dolly 

    -Doris Dear

    Never let a bad situation bring out the worst in you. Be strong and choose to be positive.-Megan Fox

    The secret of change is to focus all your energy not on fighting the old but on building the new. - Socrates

    What a wonderful afternoon at Richard Skipper Celebrates!

    I believe the future is only the past again, through another gate.
    - Sir Arthur Wing Pinero, English Dramatist  (1855-1934)

    Happy Friday...Last Day of June! (June 30th, 2017)
    June 30 is the 181st day of the year.
    There are 184 days remaining until the end of the year. It is 9:39 AM to be exact as I start today's blog. I am winning because I am a good person.
    The day that I am having has been created by design. The same can very much be said of the life I have created for myself. I pretty much had a knowledge of this 40 years ago. I still do but I need daily reminders and I still have to convince myself of this fact.
    Approaching others with optimism allows me to connect with others and live happily.
    I am not the person those who did not love me deemed me to be. That is one of the lessons of today's blog. 


    My horoscope tells me that talking about everything I'm going to do actually gets in the way of my doing it. The 'WORD' for the day is INTERESTED . Think of this word as your mantra for the day. First apply the word to yourself, THEN apply this word to EVERYONE YOU meet. Think of this word as you respond to EVERY PERSON you see throughout the day. The 'word 'for TODAY is INTERESTED ! Please pay it forward...

    Everything takes longer than I expect, leaving me short on time constantly.

    I am stepping back from my commitments, reevaluating my recent plans, and reassessing the steps I must take to reach my
    goals.

    Words are meaningless without intent and determination. It is social media day. There are pluses and minuses to where this has brought us. I absolutely love social media and how much it has connected all of us.
    I also despise social media and how it has absolutely thrown a monkey wrench into human interaction. I hate it, for example when I CALL someone and they respond with an email or text message!

    Human interaction is what I crave! That's one of the main reasons I pursued the career that chose me and why I do what I do.

    Today is a summer day in the greatest city in the world!

    I still love this city 37 years after arriving here for the first time (August 5th, 1979). As I sat down to begin writing my blog today, I was listening to Nell Carter, Armelia McQueen and Charlayne Woodard sing "Off Time" on the 1978 Tony Awards. Ms. Carter won for Best Actress in a Musical that year.
    It takes me right back to 1978 and '79 when it was on Broadway.

    Interesting thought: June 30th, 1978 was also a Friday.
    I was 18 and still living in South Carolina. I had a one way ticket to New York and in 36 days I would be leaving on a jet plane never to look back. As an 18-year-old in 1979 dreaming of a life in the theater, I was given valuable lessons in the respect of the theater.
    Those lessons stay with me to this day and actually have a huge bearing on the work I do.
    I've written about her in the past, but I had a great mentor in Miss Florence Epps. She took me under her wing after she first saw me on stage.
    She had a playhouse in her backyard and I used to go after school on Wednesdays and Thursdays. If I had gone to my parents to tell them that I wanted to take drama and elocution lessons, they would have laughed and stood in the way, their usual response.
    I don't say this asking for empathy or sympathy. It is simply a fact and part of the fabric of my life. My parents never supported my dreams nor did they ever take any interest in any aspect of my life.

    My father passed away in 2002. I regret that we resolved our differences. As far as my mom is concerned (and family and relatives), I have accepted it as my lot in life. Years ago, I interviewed Carol Lawrence.
    She told me that being in this business is the greatest elixir in the world. The more we get, the more we desire. The rub is whether or not the general public is buying. My family never bought what I'm selling.

    Wayne Dyer  said, "When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change."


    Speaking of the way you look at things, the Quad Cinema in Manhattan is showing a Barbra Streisand film festival next week.
    On Wednesday night, one of my favorite Streisand films, On a Clear Day You Can See Forever, is being shown.

    I love seeing these films in the manner in which they were meant to be seen.: in a movie theater with an audience!

    When I first came to New York in the summer of '79, it was in the days before VCRS, DVDs, and Turner Classic Movies.
    There were revival houses all over NYC, the Regency, Carnegie Hall Cinema, the Thalia, the Film Forum, to name a few.   I would go through the papers to see what was playing where and would plan my week around these great classic films.
     
    I went to see a classic film or two almost every Sunday and sometimes as well during the week.
    What memories!At my very first audition in New York, for Woody Allen's Stardust Memories (I did not get a part), I met Millie Brown. I've written about her in previous blogs. She became one of my frequent movie partners. As a matter of fact, the first time I saw On a Clear Day..., it was with Millie.
    Melinda Winifred Tentries, but I gravitate towards Daisy Gamble
    I saw so many movies this way.
    I don't even remember which theater it was or where exactly it was located. I know it was in the West Village and I practically flew home after seeing this film.
    Not only did you have a perfect trifecta with Streisand, costumes, story, and songs, but most of the film is set against the backdrop in the seventies.


    The Daisy Gamble character is what resonated with me. She also had an ability to look into the past with accute clarity!
    Being that age in the 70s in NYC is something that is, of course, glamorized in the film. Where does the time go?
    47 years ago, in 1970, I was 8 years old and living in South CarolinaNew York, at that time, may or may not have been in my scheme of thinking.

    New York, and the world, was changing. 1970 would be the year of the first Gay Pride March. It was before Studio 54 and the Disco Era, it was long before AIDS.
    My sweetness was not a weakness when I first arrived in NY. It may be slightly coarser now due to life experiences but it is still there. When I arrived in New York at the age of eighteen, there was no one greener or more naive! That naivety, I believe saved my life.
    Knowing the person I am today, it might be hard for anyone who knows me personally to believe that I did not know I was gay! I was the most asexual person to ever emerge out of Conway, South Carolina. I never went on a date. My last year in SC, and thanks to getting involved with the Upstage Company at Coastal Carolina, I had somewhat of a social life. That was the year I met Beth Mahar, still one of my best friends and one of the greatest people I have ever known.
    From the moment she met me, she accepted me for just being me!
     
    According to her, she had seen me the previous year as Roberts, the butler, in The Unsinkable Molly Brown, with The Theater of the Republic, our hometown theater.
    I did a slow turn to the audience that stopped the show and brought down the house.

    She said at that moment, she knew she had to work with me.
     Move forwards a year. As a result of my role as Roberts, I started getting cast in larger, mostly character, parts. I would go on to do The Night of January Sixteenth by Ayn Rand, one of my favorites, Cheaper By The Dozen, and Oliver!One afternoon, going home on the bus, Victoria Kujala, a friend told me about a play she was doing at the college called Marat/Sade.
    I had never heard about it. She told me they were looking for a lot of people to play the inmates in the asylum.
    That was something I could do. She told me that night that there would be a read through and that I should just show up. She was sure there was something in it for me.

    I went home and the more I thought about it, the more intrigued I was. I walked to the college, about 25 minutes away.As I was walking up the steps into the small performance space, Beth, whom I had never met before, came running in my name yelling, "Are you Ricky Skipper?"
    When I acknowledged who I was, she told me to apologize for my mom for hanging up on her.
    She had called my mom to ask me to come and audition for the show. When my mom told me I was already on my way to the theater, she dropped everything to get there. Beth was going to be the stage manager of the show, and having remembered me, thought I would be great for The Herald, which is essentially the narrator and story teller of the show.
    Beth had more faith in me than I ever would have! This role was the antithesis of everything I had done up to this point AND was in verse!
    I was introduced to the director, Cynthia, and asked to stick around and they would hear me read.
    It was very different than anything I had ever experienced with Theater of the Republic!
    Before any type of a read or run through, we all sat in a circle and acknowledged each other. A golden chalice was also passed around with white wine in which everyone took a sip. I had definitely moved to a whole new realm, on many levels. After everyone left, Beth, Cynthia, and myself stuck around so I could read through it. It was more a formality than anything else.
    I think the decision had already been made based on Beth's recommendation.
    Loved Judy Garland and the world of Musical Comedy!
    I barely read a few lines when I was asked if I would like to play the part. I was excited and scared at the same time. That has always been the case with anything new that I try in life. I went home that night and read through the script and had no idea what I was reading! I started committing everything to memory.
    I can still recite the opening monologue to this day because of the amount of work I put into this character. The more I worked on it, the more anxious I became as to whether or not I would be able to pull it off. One of the things that I LOVED about Cynthia Hodel's approach as a director was that we spent weeks in improvisation before we even got to the script.
    By the time we got to the script, we had a solid handle on as to who we as these characters were.
    My biggest fear was what if THEY didn't like me. It consumed every waking and sleeping moment of my life.
    Thank God for Beth. She kept assuring me that I was going to be great.
    She spent hours grilling me on my lines and never once complained. The entire script was in verse.
    What if I forgot a line!?!?!
    Well, that's exactly what happened! Opening night, the actor portraying François Simonet de Coulmier comes out to welcome the audience. The entire company comes bounding out on stage to take our places. As soon as I took my first position, my mind went completely blank! I don't think I could have told anyone my name if I had been asked!
    A childlike curiosity has always propelled me forward

    However, the moment that I was given my cue, as if by magic, the words began to flow. I felt as if I were flying! It was a zen moment that I have felt many times since then on stage, but at that moment it was a feeling that I can't describe.

    It was there and I'll never forgot the ovation we all received at the end of the evening.
    One thing that I had forgotten about until I started writing this blog today.
    Before we opened, because of the nature of the play, we had to give a special performance for the board and faculty to deem whether or not we could open the show. Thank God, they gave us the go ahead.
    If You Believe

    This show came along at the right time in my life. It was the perfect storm in terms of building self esteem in me. It convinced me that I WAS truly an actor. Also, because of the friends that I made and worked with on this show, it gave me a sense of belonging.

    All through school, I never fit in. No one knew what to make of me. Even when I was at Theater of the Republic, with every role I played, I felt like I was constantly trying to prove myself. The funny thing is that 37 years later, I still feel this.
    Writing The Next Chapter!
    As I type these words, I am in an office surrounded by awards, accolades,photographs, and testimonials. Those don't really mean anything to anyone but me. It does show me, however, of where I've been. It also tells me that I can go forward and be prepared for the next chapter! I'm ready!

    I never gave up! Persistence and stubbornness are underrated tools for lifelong success.
    I'm throwing back the curtain and showing my followers the little man behind the Wizard who is always trying to put forth a positive image of a man. 

    Let's Be Friends! I promise you a great experience!

    Today's blog is dedicated to Susan Hayward who was born on this date in 1917.

    Life is so much better when you stop caring about what everyone thinks, and start to actually live for yourself!!

    Though I have not have the great fortune to see Richard's show's live (Please come to
    Vegas!!!)   I do have the great fortune of calling him one of my dearest friends. And that dear ones, is  a great blessing indeed.   Richard is a blessing to all who he encounters.   His positivity   will help you through the hardest of days.   Truly one in a million :)  May God continue to bless all you do!

    Abaixo a letra de "Hard 2 Face Reality", seguida de sua tradução:


    Sometimes it’s hard to face reality
    (Oh oh)
    Even though you might get mad at me
    (Oh oh)
    Sometimes it’s hard to face reality

    Don’t be afraid to stand alone
    Don’t be afraid to stand outside the door alone
    I know it’s hard to work from home
    And it ain’t easy all alone
    Relationships over the phone
    Talking to your significant other all night long

    Sometimes it’s hard to face reality
    (Oh oh)
    Even though you might get mad at me
    (Oh oh)
    Sometimes it’s hard to face reality

    Poo Bear:

    Should’ve been adjusted to my life
    Had the oppurtunity to stay away from the last time
    Now you’re standing right in front of me
    It hurts me to know that I lied
    Trying to protect your feelings
    You’ve been in between the lines
    Hope your heart is still in healing

    Sometimes it’s hard to face reality
    (Oh oh)
    Even though you might get mad at me
    (Oh oh)
    Sometimes it’s hard to face reality

    Tradução: portugues

    Às vezes é difícil encarar a realidade
    (Oh oh)
    Mesmo que você possa ficar brava comigo
    (Oh oh)
    Às vezes é difícil encarar a realidade

    Não tenha medo de ficar sozinha
    Não tenha medo de ficar lá fora sozinha
    Eu sei que é difícil trabalhar em casa
    E não é fácil sozinha
    Relacionamentos por telefone
    Conversando com alguém importante por mais uma noite inteira

    Às vezes é difícil encarar a realidade
    (Oh oh)
    Mesmo que você possa ficar brava comigo
    (Oh oh)
    Às vezes é difícil encarar a realidade

    Poo Bear:

    Deveria ter me adaptado a minha vida
    Tinha a oportunidade de ficar longe da última vez
    Agora você está bem na minha frente
    Me dói saber que eu menti
    Tentando proteger seus sentimentos
    Você já esteve no meio disso
    Espero que seu coração ainda esteja cicatrizando

    Às vezes é difícil encarar a realidade
    (Oh oh)
    Mesmo que você possa ficar brava comigo
    (Oh oh)

    Às vezes é difícil encarar a realidade
