手機配件:Bitplay國產鏡頭組(一):介紹和3X望遠鏡頭

 Cache   
手機配件:Bitplay國產鏡頭組(一):介紹和3X望遠鏡頭 冼鏡光 August6,2018上線 手機配件上一篇ZtylusSwitch6六合一鏡頭組 兩年多前Bitplay的名氣不大,我還是在看台灣的廣告才知道,那時Amazon上都還找不到,縱使是今天在美國Amazon網站上輸入Bitplay仍然沒多少東西、特別是那些新鏡頭。兩年多前,那是Moment、Olloclip和Ztylus這些廠的天下。當時的Olloclip實在不好用(雖然點子很不錯),手上有一套,但用過之後再拿出來用的意願極低,目前的iPhoneX版看起來似乎好用得多,然而卻沒有望遠鏡頭。Moment一直走高價路線,鏡頭品質當然比較高,目前第二版又有相當改進,我們日後再談它。Ztylus一直站在比較中間的位置,我的看法是,Ztylus的手機鏡頭的産品線頗具創意而且品質中上(見ZtylusSwitch6六合一鏡頭組和ZtylusRevolver4-in-1鏡頭組的介紹),而且Ztylus的Z-Prime鏡頭也的確十分好,我們日後會介紹。正因為如此,Bitplay在群雄並立的環境中要出頭實在不容易。 兩年前回台時到三創走一圈,發現有整個櫃台的Bitplay產品,當下就訂了全套,不過因為貨源不足等了幾天才湊齊、帶回美國。那時Bitplay只有iPhone6Plus的機殼,但是沒多久iPhone7Plus上市,心想就等著和7Plus相容的新機殼出來後再玩吧,畢竟手上手機鏡頭不少就慢慢輪著用就好了。這一等就是一年多,換了iPhoneX後都還沒玩到Bitplay,於是今年回台時就把全套帶在身上,回美後散步時也帶著,本文就是這幾個月累積下來的經驗。 因為鏡頭比較多,Bitplay鏡頭的介紹得分成兩篇,本篇先大略介紹各個鏡頭、並且詳細討論Bitplay3X望遠鏡頭,其它鏡頭和偏光鏡就留到下一篇。 SNAP!7機殼 BitPlay為iPhone7Plus生產的盒子如下,左邊是正面、右邊是反面。BitPlay也有為iPhone8和iPhoneX設計的機殼,我個人覺得後者的比較好看些,但是我沒意願再買一個來玩Bitplay的鏡頭了(因為手機鏡頭已經夠多)。 從盒子上方抽出來就看到手機的機殼(下面第一張照片),把內盒全抽出來並且取出上層是第二張照片,第三張照片是機殼部分,把機殼拿出來後下方有一份簡單的說明書(第四和第五張照片): 回到上面第二張照片。那一部分有三個配件,最大有亮銀面的是手把,中間細長的是一條細腕帶,最上方也是最小的是插座蓋(後面會講到)。 說明書中建議,先把手機左側放入機殼、再把右側壓進去。沒錯,這的確是比較容易的方式,因為機殼有相當硬度。把手機拿出來時還是先取手機下方(充電插座那一頭)容易些。我發現,SNAP!7是我所有手機殼中最難裝卸的一個,而且在感覺上也是最累贅的一個,原因是我把SANP!7加上手機放上衣口袋裡頭(手把在上),一旦彎腰到某個程度就會掉地上、而且屢試不爽,關鍵恐怕就是那個多了點厚度、在機殼上的把手的額外重量。 下面是裝好機殼的兩面: 接下來,我們看看機殼的各項功能。下面第一張照片是相機部分,左邊大圓孔是裝鏡頭的螺紋,長型孔讓出手機上的2X鏡頭和閃光燈。換句話說,Bitplay的鏡頭只能搭配手機上的廣角鏡頭使用、而沒有用到那個2X的標準鏡頭。第二張照片是在機殼上裝了3X望遠鏡頭的樣子,請注意到這個鏡頭擋住了手機上的2X標準鏡頭。 下面是裝了機殼後手機四週的操控機制。第一張是控制音量所在,手機上降低音量的按鈕在機殼上變成淺色,於是這兩個音量鍵的功能就清清楚楚不會按錯了;在鈴聲開關下方有一條白色的細線,那其實是手機和機殼在該處的空隙。 下面是手機右邊的按鈕,第二張是充電和麥克風部位,在操作上和原手機無異。 下面是手機的上方(只有一個按鈕的那一側),有相機符號的淺色地方是快門鈕。這是手機上沒有的功能,裝上機殼後使用人可以按這個快門鈕拍攝,並不需要安裝額外的App。在快門鈕右側的凹槽是用來安裝其它拍攝用配件的,好比說燈光等等。 在手把下方有一個可以安裝腕帶的孔,這是下面照片的頂端,其它照片中會清楚地看到一個孔。 前面提過,盒子中還有三個配件:一個大手把、一條腕帶、一個插座蓋(下面第一張照片)。插座蓋是插入快門鈕旁邊配件插座用的,這是第二張照片。 下面是大手把反面和機殼的照片片,機殼上有一個螺絲孔、手把上有一個螺絲,透過手把上的齒輪轉動螺絲。裝好大手把後就是第二張照片。 大手把下方有個腳架孔,於是可以上腳架拍攝。 Bitplay鏡頭 我的鏡頭是兩年多前在三創買的,除了鏡頭之外還買了一個SNAP!PRO給iPhone6Plus用的機殻。下面照片就是整組配件,花了多少銀子是記不清了;這有五個鏡頭(偏光鏡、超廣角、全格魚眼、圓型魚眼(含微距)、和3X望遠鏡頭),記得三創還送了一個裝鏡頭的盒子。 下面是SNAP!PRO的內容,有機殼、兩個不同顔色的手把、一個插座蓋、一條腕帶、一個小螺絲起子(裝手把用)和一個廣角鏡頭(從未用過): 每一個鏡頭都是裝在長條的紙盒中,把裡頭的塑料盒抽出來就是一個含前後鏡頭蓋的鏡頭和一個裝鏡頭用的小袋子: 下面是五個鏡頭和它們的鏡頭蓋和袋子。買的時候沒檢查,後來發現3X望遠鏡頭少了後鏡頭蓋,反應後Bitplay寄了兩個給我。說老實話,Bitplay的後鏡頭蓋很容易掉下了,因為很小所以很容易遺失。這些鏡頭都是用螺紋裝卸,但後鏡頭蓋卻沒有螺紋,所以很容易掉下來。 鏡頭盒內部挖了七個孔,孔下方標了該放的鏡頭,左上方應該是放插座蓋的,但放偏光鏡的孔為什麽是葫蘆樣就不很清楚了。這個盒子在某個程度上是非常方便的,但是取鏡頭時常會把後鏡頭蓋卡住,一不小心就會從盒子中掉出來找不到了。我總是覺得這個盒子可以做得更好。 買了鏡頭後並沒有常拿出來用,沒多久iPhone7Plus出來了,機殼變得不相容,所以等到SANP!7出來後又買了個新機殼,但使用率仍然不高,一直到這個(2018)暑假才發狠全套搬出來拍攝。不過,兩年下來Bitplay有否更新這組鏡頭就不得而知。所以,本文的照片是用兩年前買的鏡頭拍攝的,這一點得在討論各鏡頭之前說清楚。 Bitplay3X的視角 我從3X望遠鏡頭開始(以下簡稱3X),因為它相當於135底片的85mm人像鏡頭(iPhone7Plus的廣角鏡頭是28mm,所以3X就是84mm=3x28)。一收到鏡頭馬上就裝上去試一試,然而怎麼拍都發現這個鏡頭的倍率不是3X、而是2X出頭些。十年前(2008)此地寫過一篇DC望遠鏡頭倍率不足的迷思的文章、探討望遠鏡頭倍率不足的課題,有點技術性,如果您有興趣的話不妨一讀。因為這個Bitplay3X是為iPhone設計,所以用iPhone拍攝應該有近似於3X的倍率(也就是85mm的視角),但實情並非如此。下面是用iPhone7Plus的廣角(1X、28mm)、標準(2X、56mm)、和Bitplay3X在同一地點拍攝的。這當然不是當初的測試照片,而是為了寫這篇文章再拍的。我們立即發現1X(第一張照片)和2X(第二張照片)的結果有巨大的差異,但是2X和Bitplay3X之間差異並不大,這表示什麽?這個鏡頭和iPhone7Plus配合時倍率不足3X,雖然鏡頭可能在光學上是個3X的設計,但和iPhone7Plus配合使用時的相容性並不高(請看前面引用的文章)。 下面這張照片是1X拍的,黃框是iPhone7Plus的標準鏡頭(2X)拍到的部分,紅框則大致上是3X拍到的區域。這樣,您就不難看出2X和3X之間的差異實在很小。 接着,我找了三個鏡頭28mm(相當於1X)、55mm(相當於2X)、和85mm(相當於3X)裝在NikonD610(135片幅機型)上、在同一地點各拍一張,然後在28mm那張上頭用黃色和紅色分別標出55mm和85mm拍到的區域(第四張照片)。您很容易就可以看出在這些定焦鏡頭下2X和3X的差異,比Bitplay3X的大得多。 上面這組可以視為在無限遠的情況,近距離又如何呢?這也是我想試一試的。我擺了一個幾乎是平面的景,手機和相機到被攝體的距離約一公尺出頭,先用iPhone7Plus的2X鏡頭拍一張、再用Bitplay3X拍一張。噢,這一下Bitplay3X的缺點全都跑出來了(第二張照片),相當嚴重的枕狀變型、邊緣和角角都很糊;換句話說,影像品質不高,不過這不是我們目前的討論重點。第三張照片是2X拍攝的,黃框是3X拍到的部分,差別實在不太大。 其次我們用55mm和85mm(機身仍然是NikonD610)在同一地點再拍一次,這是頭兩張照片;第三張照片是在55mm的照片中標出85mm拍到的區域,差異還是很大。 由此看來,Bitplay3X和iPhone7Plus的相容性好像並不很高(假設它真的是一個在光學上的3X設計),相當令我失望。 Bitplay3X變型 外掛的望遠鏡頭或多或少都會有一點枕狀變型,但是我手上的兩個3X鏡頭的變型都非常嚴重。在ExoLens的165度廣角鏡頭和3X望遠鏡頭這篇文章中介紹過ExoLens的3X,它的變型是下面第一張照片,而Bitplay3X是第二張照片,看起來Bitplay3X的變型低一些,然而ExoLens3X的影像品質卻比較高。兩張照片中的黃圈標出個人認為有好影像品質的區域,明顯地ExoLens3X的好品質區域比較大。 Bitplay3X的泛光、鬼影、邊緣失光和紫邊 Bitplay3X的泛光和鬼影相當嚴重。下面的照片中上緣有太陽,但是泛光把面積不大的太陽變成長度幾乎佔畫面的一半;不但如此,畫面下緣有黃綠色的鬼影,畫面下半部還有一個半圓形的比較淡的鬼影。第二張照片的情況也類似,只是沒那麽嚴重。第三張中還有奇怪的光芒! 縱使太陽不在畫面內,鬼影依然存在。頭兩張照片中太陽在畫面外左後方,這從物體的陰影不難看出來,但畫面右下角就是有鬼影。第三張照片中,太陽是在畫面外的右上角,畫面的左下角就有藍紫色的鬼影。所以,使用Bitplay3X時最好順光拍攝(讓強光源在拍攝者的背後),以便降低泛光和鬼影的影響。 再看下面這張照片,太陽在畫面外左上角,沒看到泛光和鬼影,但是卻暴露了這個鏡頭兩個缺失。首先,畫面中央部位的水波反光呈藍紫色,這表示這個鏡頭縱使是在中央也可能會出現紫邊。其次,靠近畫面下緣的水波反光的型狀是否有些怪異?第二張照片是原照片在該處的600x600裁切,每個反光點看起來都像隻水母,這是相當嚴重的慧形像差,於是影像邊緣的品質堪慮。 Bitplay3X有少許邊緣失光,也就是說,有暗角,好在影響不很大。 最後我們看看色像差(紫邊)。下面這張小照片看起來很正常,如果我們看它正中央(第二張照片)和畫面上方(第三張照片)的600x600裁切就會發現有相當強的紫邊。一般鏡頭很難完全修正紫邊,但在畫面中央(也就是畫質最好的位置)會出現紫邊就多半說明了這個鏡頭對色像差修正不足的事實。 再看一個例子。這張照片的中央部位有很明顯的紫邊(第二張照片),不過重點不在那兒。第三、四、五張是畫面上緣左、中、右的600x600裁切,除了高對比區域邊緣有紫邊之外,那些區域都帶了一條向外延伸的尾巴,這主要是慧形像差,所以這個鏡頭在畫面邊緣的表現不佳,頗不如以前介紹過的ExoLens3X。 一些照片和討論 以下是一些隨手拍攝的照片和討論。我個人以為,一個焦距約略是135底片片幅的85mm的人像鏡頭的拍攝時機,大致上都是在週圍的景物,不太會拍攝無限遠的景,所以本節照片的景物幾乎都是不離身邊的事物。 首先是此地昇降鐵橋的近景。很明顯地,照片下方左右兩個角落的水波有點糊,而且橋兩邊的欄杆也如此。第二和第三張是中央和右邊的600x600裁切。中央部位還好,但仔細些就會發現有很細很淡的紫邊;右邊的情況就很糟了,影像右邊都拖出了朦朦的尾巴,前面已經提過了。另外,橋其實是直線,但是卻有一點凸出的現象。 這是咱們小城的地方法院,第二張和第三張是照片中央和緊隣的右側的裁切、第四張是照片右下角。從這三張裁切可以看出,建築物不在向陽面(畫面中央)表現還好,但向陽面的裁切中影像品質下降很快,到和天空相接的界線時那種延伸出來的朦朧的尾巴就出現了,然而該處只是離邊緣約三分之一而已。在更邊緣的右下角的畫質(第四張照片)就更差了。 我們不妨看看ExoLens的3X鏡頭的結果,下面這張照片取自ExoLens的文章。雖然拍攝時間不同,但角度沒多大差異。第二張、第三張和第四張是對應區域的裁切,您看效果是否比Bitplay好? 下面是兒童遊樂場的一景,天空部位出現暗角、影像邊緣糊糊的: 下面是城裡頭的建築。很明顯地,靠近影像邊緣的垂直線保都變成曲線了。此外,建築物和天空相接的邊線都出現了紫邊;第二和第三張是左上角和深色建築物右上角的裁切,紫邊整整齊齊和建築物邊緣貼在一起。 以下是其它一些照片,我們就不多做說明了。 和買ExoLens一樣,買Bitplay也為的是這個3X望遠鏡頭,因為裝在iPhone7Plus的視角大致上就是135底片機的85mm人像鏡頭。前面提過了,Bitplay3X的視角比85mm來得大,而且畫面邊緣的表現不佳,恐怕拍人物的半身或頭肩像不會很理想,當然拍風景就更差了。下面是我唯一拍的頭肩人像,邊緣糊糊的、背景的虛化也不理想、顏色不甚飽和,很是失望,於是就不再用這個鏡頭拍人了。 小結 本文介紹Bitplay的機殼和3X鏡頭。機殼方面,我覺得硬了些、那個有內建手把的機殼放在比較寛鬆的口袋裡頭,彎腰角度大了很可能會掉下了,而且機殼增了點厚度和寛度,有些手機專用袋子可能會放不下。我從來沒加裝額外手把拿出去拍攝、也很少用快門鈕(因為我比較喜歡用手去點手機屏幕選擇對焦點並且調整曝光),所以對這兩項不評論。就機殼而言,個人覺得保護性能足夠,但卻不怎麼好看,我反而喜歡給iPhoneX用的SNAP!X,所以到底還是忍不住買了一個卡其色的加一個望遠鏡頭,因為手機攝影不缺廣角和魚眼,但好的望遠鏡頭、特別是可以配合iPhone上標準2X鏡頭使用的好望遠鏡頭實在是太少。 在3X望遠鏡頭方面,老實說我是很失望的。為什麼?人像攝影傳統上是85mm到135mm,iPhone上的2X相當於56mm,其實是個標準鏡頭(傳統上是40mm到60mm,在SLR早期的大光圈標準鏡頭是58mmf/2)。當時看到Bitplay的3X(相當於84mm)相當興奮,但是第一張人像的大頭照就令人失望,很嚴重的枕狀變形扭曲了人臉、很小的好品質區域使得只有五官部位勉強清晰,耳朵、脖子、頭頂因為嚴重的慧型像差而變得模糊、並且有點怪異,因此我很少用這個鏡頭,因為太令人失望。 當然,便宜的手機鏡頭通常品質都不會很高、而且很多都極差。那麽這個3X鏡頭是否合您要求?請您看過此地的討論和照片後再做決定。期望那個新的而且相當貴的HDTelephoto望遠鏡頭有好表現,但現在好望遠鏡頭市場已經有點擁擠了,Moment、ZtylusZ-Prime和Zeiss都是知名産品,只是賣Zeiss産品的Fellowes公司不太爭氣、賣到Zeiss鏡頭好像停產,因為給iPhone8和X的裝鏡頭架子都還沒影子,一家賣辨公室器材的公司似乎不太瞭解手機攝影的市場,好鏡頭被賣垮了也是奇蹟一件。不過無所謂,有一家叫Helium的公司為錄影和攝影生産了一個貴森森的機殻,宣稱可以把Zeiss的2X鏡頭裝在iPhoneX的2X鏡頭上使用,這就有了112mm的人像鏡頭,很令人期待。不但如此,機殻上有37mm螺紋,可以使用極多的37mm攝影配件,這十分令人興奮,因為加上一個37-28mm下降接環,我手上的Nikon為早期數位相機設計的高階魚眼、廣角和望遠鏡頭(譬如TCE22X、TCE3ED3X、TCE3PF3X、和兩個TelescoMicro都可以試試(請參看旋轉鏡頭數位相機大系(二):顛峰期一文的介紹),但不表示一定會成功。我已經訂了一個,玩過之後一定會和手機攝影玩家分享我的經驗。 幾個星期之後,請不要忘了到此地看看Bitplay其它鏡頭的介紹。 Bitplay鏡頭組的下一篇文章(偏光鏡、環型和全格魚眼、超廣角、和近拍鏡頭)在此 未經本人同意,請勿轉載轉貼本文任何片段,請尊重智慧財產(著作)權 引用方式:冼鏡光,手機配件:Bitplay國產鏡頭組(一):介紹和3X望遠鏡頭,DCView.com達人部落格(http://blog.dcview.com/article.php?a=Az9SN1A0U2dXNg%3D%3D)

Better Late Than Never Film School Drop Outs 2019
Week 31: Genre - Thriller - 70s Conspiracy Thrillers

I'm not quite sure there was a conspiracy in this movie, at least in the way I'd consider the term, but I'm pretty sure I took this from a list. Oh well, it was an excuse to watch a good movie, and that's all I need from FSDO.

Sidney Lumet continues to amaze me as a master of tension; that's three remarkable films in a row. What starts off as an almost comical bank robbery by someone who clearly isn't prepared for this sort of crime and is trying to present himself as more threatening than it is, becomes nearly unbearable as soon as the cops arrive. The pressure mounts and Pacino's weak attempts to appear in control almost immediately fold in on themselves. From there we watch a man unravel, desperately trying to cling to some level of control and faith that he still has a future. Every pause leaves us on edge the same way everyone in the situation is, anxious about how it will finally resolve.

While I'm normally of the unpopular opinion that Pacino goes too big and loud too quickly for my tastes, with performances that don't necessarily earn the amount of mania he delivers, here the explosive moments make complete sense within a botched bank robbery, and he brings a lot of nuance to the quieter moments. It's easily my favorite performance I've seen of his, generating a lot of sympathy for this character.

So this movie is just thrilling at every moment, but it's also a semi-accurate retelling of a real event, and has some progressive ideas for the time. The film respectfully handles gay and transgender characters, and clearly has some knowledge of the problems with cops, too. There are quick nods to the racism and homophobia within the police force, and I must admit to being amused by how difficult it was for the negotiator to convince the cops to lower their weapons every time Pacino's character stepped outside.

This is just amazing filmmaking to create something this exciting out of (almost only) one location and a handful of people. It's not even the first time Lumet has accomplished that while operating on a small scale, either. I would have maybe preferred for Pacino's partner in the robbery to not get sidelined as much as he did; the film has little interest in exploring him as more than a source of jokes and a tool for Pacino in the robbery. But that's a really small complaint, and overall this is a fantastic film.

Sinopse

Andy (Gabriel Bateman) e sua mãe se mudam para uma nova cidade em busca de um recomeço.

Rose-Lynn Harlan (Jessie Buckley) é uma cantora de Glasgow, na Escócia, que sonha em se tornar uma estrela da música country em Nashville, no Tennessee. Acabando de sair da prisão e mãe solteira de dois filhos, ela é forçada a encarar responsabilidades mais urgentes e arruma um emprego de diarista, mas acaba encontrando em seu caminho quem dê apoio para o seu sonho aparentemente louco.
As Loucuras de Rose, como o título já indica, fala sobre a "loucura" que faz parte da essência de uma protagonista corajosa e apavorada ao mesmo tempo, cujo maior desejo é o de se tornar uma famosa cantora de country. O que o filme vai nos mostrando, porém, é que seu estilo despojado de viver não condiz com sua realidade diária. Seguir sonhos é uma tarefa árdua e deixar uma vida em troca de outra que não está garantida é uma missão quase impossível. Vale muito a pena conferir.

No SÁBADO (02/11) o filme proposto será "VELOZES E FURIOSOS: HOBBS & SHAW” (ação) às 21h Tempo Aprox. 136 min.
Velozes & Furiosos: Hobbs & Shaw : Poster

Sinopse

Desde que se conheceram, Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) e Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham) constantemente bateram de frente, não só por inicialmente estarem em lados opostos mas, especialmente, pela personalidade de cada um. Agora, a dupla precisa unir forças para enfrentar Brixton (Idris Elba), um homem alterado geneticamente que deseja obter um vírus mortal para pôr em andamento um plano que mataria milhões de pessoas em nome de uma suposta evolução da humanidade. Para tanto eles contam com a ajuda de Hattie (Vanessa Kirby), irmã de Shaw, que é também agente do MI6, o serviço secreto britânico. O filme é spin off da série original aproveitando esse dois personagens que muito fizeram sucesso, mas o filme assume uma outra dinâmica e se assume como um simples filme de ação do gênero. Aqui, temos uma simples trama como pano de fundo e muita ação mentirosa que faria James Bond brincadeira de criança. Se você curte o gênero certamente vai se sivertir muito com esses dois astros bastante carismáticos.

O Mal Não Espera a Noite - Midsommar : Poster

Sinopse

Dani e Christian formam um jovem casal americano com um relacionamento prestes a desmoronar. Mas depois que uma tragédia familiar os mantém juntos, Dani, que está de luto, convida-se para se juntar a Christian e seus amigos em uma viagem para um festival de verão único em uma remota vila sueca. O que começa como férias despreocupadas de verão em uma terra de luz eterna toma um rumo sinistro quando os moradores do vilarejo convidam o grupo a participar de festividades que tornam o paraíso pastoral cada vez mais preocupante e ao mesmo tempo muito perturbador.
Neste filme, a obscuridade não só se origina de como o diretor trabalha bem a crueza no suspense, mas essencialmente no quanto é possível chocar até mesmo nas situações que se tornam cômicas de tão absurdas. Portanto, não se surpreenda se você rir em algumas passagens de Midsommar.
Dassa mente visionária de Ari Aster (diretor) surge um conto de fadas cinematográfico encharcado de pavor onde um mundo de escuridão se desdobra em plena luz do dia. Imperdível!

Sinopse

Luton, 1987. Javed (Viveik Kalra) é um adolescente de ascendência paquistanesa, que nasceu na Inglaterra após seus pais migrarem para o país. Proibido pelo pai (Kulvinder Ghir) de ter uma namorada e até mesmo a ir em festas, ele se sente acuado em uma vida que se limita a ir de casa para o colégio, e vice-versa. Um dia, um amigo do colégio (Aaron Phagura) lhe dá duas fitas cassete de álbuns de Bruce Springsteen. Javed começa a ouvi-las e logo se identifica com as canções, que não o estimulam a lutar pelo que deseja.
O filme é sensível, os atores são ótimos e você sai do longa querendo ouvir e conhecer mais a obra de Bruce Springsteen. Os hits vão sendo destilados ao e você vai percebendo que conhece muitas canções desse artirsta. Imperdível para quem curte um bom rock anos 80 e gosta de uma boa história.

Predadores Assassinos : Poster

Sinopse

Quando a Flórida é vítima de um imenso furacão, os tsnunamis levam todos os habitantes a evacuarem o local. Mesmo assim, a jovem Haley (Kaya Scodelario) se recusa a sair de casa enquanto não conseguir resgatar o pai, gravemente ferido. Aos poucos, o nível da água começa a subir, Haley também se fere e tanto ela quanto o pai precisam enfrentar inimigos inesperados: gigantescos crocodilos que chegam com as águas.
Predadores Assassinos desfruta até mesmo de seus momentos mais absurdos para criar um clima de pânico incessante e um senso de possibilidades que não incomoda, pois o contexto é bem construído a ponto de se tornar realístico - até mesmo quando um crocodilo invade um banheiro e é preso no box. Se a palavra "simples" não parece se encaixar em um filme como este, vale observar como Alexandre Aja (diretor) aproveita as restrições da cenografia (que se limita apenas à casa da família praticamente em 80% da duração) para, assim, executar uma produção repleta de engenhosidades práticas e visuais. Entretenimento de primeira linha! Imperdível!

Agora, as duas (filha e babá) correm grande perigo quando a maldita boneca começa a tocar o terror na casa. Poderia ser contraditório ao afirmar que Annabelle 3 é superdivertido, mas é a pura verdade. O longa é um caminhão de surpresas e emoções. Com boa premissa, bem escrito e principalmente dirigido, quando a coisa começa a pegar não para mais até o seu desfecho.

À medida que sua obsessão cresce, ela fica cada vez mais entrelaçada na vida da jovem, fazendo-a perder o contato com a realidade. Mas a realidade nem sempre é o que parece.
Baseado no filme francês L'Empreinte de l'ange (2008), essa versão entretanto ficou muito mais tensa que a primeira. O enredo pode parecer um suspense padrão, mas esse não é o caso. Angel of Mine' tem um ritmo dinâmico e roteiro inteligente. É um filme instigante que vale muito a pena ser visto. No elenco: (Noomi Rapace) e (Luke Evans).

Sinopse

Peter Parker (Tom Holland) está em uma viagem de duas semanas pela Europa, ao lado de seus amigos de colégio, quando é surpreendido pela visita de Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson). Precisando de ajuda para enfrentar monstros nomeados como Elementais, Fury o convoca para lutar ao lado de Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal), um novo herói que afirma ter vindo de uma Terra paralela. Além da nova ameaça, Peter precisa lidar com a lacuna deixada por Tony Stark, que deixou para si seu óculos pessoal, com acesso a um sistema de inteligência artificial associado à Stark Industries.
O longa cumpre de forma correta a função de entretenimento. Nele existe um conflito existencial que permeia todo o longa-metragem, de forma que ao mesmo tempo seja uma comédia juvenil que dialogue com os eventos do Universo Cinematográfico Marvel em uma aventura solo do Cabeça de Teia que traga ainda reflexões implícitas à sociedade moderna. Até funciona, mas sacrificando certas características não só do super-herói, mas até mesmo do primeiro filme, superior a esta continuação. Resta aguardar se o terceiro filme solo enfim trará um Aranha que não seja tão dependente dos outros.

A Life in Four Colors Part Forty-Eight

 Cache   
1969 was the year when I began to stumble across the path to my future.

First off, I really felt like I had found my place with friends who truly understood me. I had a close friend who shared most of my interests (Gary Steele), I had a new friend who also shared most of my interests and who had the advantage of being a beautiful girl (Susan)... and I took advantage of an opportunity that would turn out to lead me to my first career.

Berry College, located just a few miles from my house, had a Summer Enrichment Program that allowed invited high school sophomores to take college courses during the summer between their sophomore and junior years. Somehow, for reasons I never understood, I got one of those invitations.

And I almost turned it down.

It wasn't like I really had anything else on my schedule for the summer of 1969. But like pretty much every teenager, I was looking forward to sleeping late and goofing off for most of June, July, and August. My parents told me that they thought I should consider it, though, since it was an honor to get the invitation. My parents were never pushy or manipulative in any way. That's probably why I took their advice--their reasoning was sound (I could get high school credit for the course I took, and it might make a good impression on someone at Berry) and it was only a couple of classes.

So I accepted the invitation and signed up for the program. And I began what became a college tradition for me: I looked at the schedule of classes I could take and searched out the two earliest classes.

Like I said, I looked forward to sleeping late and goofing off--but I put a higher priority on "goofing off" than on "sleeping late," and I realized that if I could take an 8am and 9am class, I could finish up by 10am, get home by 10:20, and still have the entire day to do what I wanted. Heck, if I hadn't taken the class, I probably wouldn't have gotten up much earlier than 10am anyway, so I really wasn't losing any time at all!

Turned out that I enjoyed the classes, and I liked Berry College. It also turned out that they liked me, I guess, because at the end of my junior year they offered me a chance to take another class in the summer of 1970--and even better, they offered me an academic scholarship contingent on me maintaining my GPA and doing well in my summer 1970 class.

None of that had been in my mind when I took advantage  of the Summer Enrichment Program in the summer of 1969. Had I not participated in that program, however, I probably would have never gotten that scholarship offer, which means that I probably would have never gone to Berry College, which means that I wouldn't have been able to marry Susan a week after my high school graduation because it wouldn't have been financially feasible, which means that I wouldn't have crossed paths with the college professors who guided and inspired me to sign up for the teaching program at Berry, which means that I wouldn't have become an English teacher, which means that  Susan wouldn't have been able to go to Coosa Valley Tech as soon as I began teaching, which means that she wouldn't have gotten the software design certification that got her the job with Management Science America in Atlanta, which means we wouldn't have moved to Marietta, which means that I never would have gone to Dr. No's when Artie Decker owned the shop, which means hat he would have never offered me a job ordering comics for his store, which means that he would have never sold me the store in 1982...

It's amazing how much my life was changed by two little decisions: first, that fateful call to one Susan Hendrix of Cedartown, Georgia, in response to her letter of comment in an issue of Batman; second, my taking advantage of an invitation to take college courses at Berry in the summer of 1969. Put those two things together, and the doors to all the good things in my life were opened for me.

(This also began a lifelong habit of scheduling things in the morning, by the way. Medical appointments, financial appointments, pest control visits, home repairs--whatever it is, I try to schedule it as early as possible. I still value my goofing off time, and I love the feeling of getting those obligations and duties out of the way as soon as possible.)

Comment on Psycho-Pass 3 – 01 [Laelaps’ Calling] by evafan

 Cache   
Look, I did not make the show political, the creators did. What's wrong with calling them out on it? People like you, who enable exploitation of the medium to promote the so called narratives are the reason for the impending death of it. Happened with movies. Happened with games. Happened with comics. Is happening to anime. We all know it by now. "points that barely factor into the actual plot" It does. It means the plot is carrot for you to consume the real dish. The whole thing is not only spoiled, it is meaningless, because the foundation is rotten. Talking about plot is a fool's errand. Meanwhile someone is planning ahead about how to up the BS dosage in your next fix. Some people say no right away, some only when twitter mob knocks on their door. It is not my place to tell others what to think, but that the subliminal messaging is happening here is an obvious fact. You can ignore it or discredit me as a triggered troll, but the fact will, unfortunately, remain. "give it a chance, it’s Psycho-pass" At least you admit that you will illogically care as long as they call it Psycho Pass. Would you watch this show if it was called Psion Pals?

'A Marvelous Life' Holds Stan Lee High As The Man Who Made Superheroes Matter

 Cache   

In 2018, Marvel Studios released Black Panther. The film grossed 1.3 billion dollars and was nominated for 7 Oscars including Best Picture (a first time for a superhero film).

Beyond the money and awards, the release of Black Panther was a global event. The story of a super-powered African king, leader of the most technologically advanced nation on Earth, allowed the film to address racism and the history of colonial oppression in entirely new and unexpected ways. If anyone was still raising questions about comics mattering for culture, Black Panther meant the definitive end of the argument. Marvel comics and their characters were culture.

So how did we get here? How did superhero comics, the supposed realm of nerdy teenagers, end up conquering the world?

The answer, in many ways, comes down to a single name — Stan Lee. Across a lifetime of creativity, collaboration and endless hustle, Stan Lee saw possibilities no else could imagine and made them real. And if you want to understand how Lee and Marvel did it, Danny Fingeroth's new book A Marvelous Life is the place to start. As a lifelong fan of Spider-Man, The X-Men, Star-Lord and the rest, it was delightful introduction to a guy I'd never met but felt I'd known my whole life.

Fingeroth, who did his own award-winning time at Marvel, begins by laying out the contours of Stan Lee's early life as the son of a Jewish New York immigrant family (Lee was born in 1922 as Stanley Martin Lieber). Through the 1950s, Lee managed to build a solid if unimpressive career working in comics. But then in the late 1950s, the comics industry crashed as TV gave teenage boys a different venue for their interests. By 1960, Lee felt stymied and trapped. He was planning on quitting comics once and for all to do something "important." It was that frustration that led Stan Lee to what Fingeroth calls "a midlife crisis heard 'round the world."

Seeing that other publishers were having some success reviving superhero teams, Lee's boss tasked him with coming up with a new comic. Lee took the assignment, but he didn't just want to create just another group of costumed do-gooders. Instead, he set out to imagine a different vision what it meant to be a superhero.

In this and the work that followed, Lee asked himself what would happen if an ordinary person got superpowers. Would it make their lives better or would it make them harder? What Lee was picturing were superheroes who weren't gods from another world or perfect, infallible examples of human righteousness. Instead, he wanted stories of flawed men and women, full of neurosis and anguish, who suddenly found they could fly or stretch or punch their way through brick walls. What would happen then?

What happened was The Fantastic Four. And then The Hulk. And then Thor and Spiderman and Doctor Strange and Iron Man and The X-men. Over the next few years, Lee along with the equally legendary Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko, managed to create a large fraction of what we now call the Marvel Universe. Many of the characters had huge, real-life challenges like Tony Stark (aka Iron Man) and his drinking problem. That meant these characters lived in a recognizable world. "I wanted to make it as realistic as possible" says Lee in an interview quoted in the book. "Instead of [superheroes] living in Gotham City or Metropolis, I felt I will have them live in New York City." Just as important, these new Marvel characters lived in the same world where they crossed paths, formed alliances (or broke them), had romances (and broke those too), all of which formed one, giant, seamless story.

It wasn't just the stories that were new. Lee saw something few others could recognize — a nascent adult audience for superhero comics. Rather than just a backwater of teenage fantasy, Lee understood that with the right stories, superhero comics could gain relevance in the rapidly emerging world of ever-present mass media. Then Lee went further. He not only saw the change coming, he understood how to become its personification.

Most folks only know Stan Lee through his charming and quirky cameos in modern Marvel films. But if you were serious about comics back in the day (for me "the day" was the mid-1970s when I was 11 years old), Stan Lee was a constant presence. One of Lee's great innovations in Marvel comics was to develop a relationship with his readers through the "Bullpen Bulletins." These were a kind of editor's news and information page where Lee drew back the curtain to let you see what was happening at Marvel's offices. And as Lee described it, something amazing was always happening including the occasional visit from a rock star or famous movie director who'd popped by to express their Marvel admiration.

That was Lee's genius. "Little by little [he] was making himself and Marvel into celebrities" writes Fingeroth. By becoming a regular presence within Marvel's pages Lee was "mythologizing what he and his peers did for a living, making himself and them as important as the characters whose stories they told." But Lee was making us, his readers part of that story too. He was convincing us that we, too, were part of something very important just by buying those slim volumes of The Avengers, Silver Surfer or Nick Fury and His Howling Commandos.

A Marvelous Life gives us strong insights into the forces that drove Lee and Marvel to success. But Stan Lee was also a complex man who could be both beloved and reviled. In particular, Lee's conflicts with collaborators, who felt he had stolen credit for their work, is also an important part of his story. This was particularly true for Jack Kirby. Fingeroth spends some time in the book unpacking Lee's long running dispute with Kirby and others. He also mentions abuse allegations previously noted by media. These sections were not particularly compelling to me, but they are an important part of Lee's legacy and Fingeroth handles them with grace.

One small criticism of the book is that it tells us very little of Lee's response to the founding and runaway success of Marvel Studios (beginning with Iron Man in 2008). That seems a strange omission given how much of Lee's later story is him trying to get Hollywood to pick up Marvel properties.

Taken as a whole though, A Marvelous Life is a must-read for anyone who wants to understand how Stan Lee set Marvel on the path to world domination (in a good way).

Section 23 and Maiden Japan will release the Human Crossing: Complete Collection anime on Blu-ray on 1/8.

HBO is releasing Judd Apatow’s The Zen Diaries of Garry Shandling on Blu-ray on 12/18.

We recently reviewed Indicator’s William Castle at Columbia: Volume One Blu-ray box set here at The Bits. Fans of that will be pleased to know that the William Castle at Columbia: Volume Two box set is due on 12/14, featuring Zotz!, 12 Frightened Girls!, The Old Dark House, and Strait-Jacket. You can pre-order it on Amazon here.

Finally today, Bits reader Andrew D asked Turbine Media Group in Germany for clarification on the differences in running time between the “unrated” version of Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho that they’re including in their Psycho Legacy Collection: Limited Edition Blu-ray box set due on 1/31/19 in Germany (it’s coded for region A, B and C – click here to pre-order it from Amazon.de) and the U.S. theatrical release. Here’s their response:

“We’re talking roughly 20 secs [longer] here. Then... from what we’re researched... there’s no US cut or German cut. Apparently Hitchcock delivered a single cut to the studio. This was submitted to the appropriate ratings boards (especially MPAA and BBFC). Then, and this is what we (strongly) assume, Universal edited the film to release it. For some reason, all or some German prints were not censored. One of these prints ended up being used for a telecine for German TV in the 90s, after which the print was sent to storage. We were able to track this down with the help of a genius at Universal (going through old delivery notes). So we regard this version as the true original version, which by today’s standards presumably would be the so called “unrated version” – with the exception that this was in fact rated (16 and above) in Germany.”

Thanks to Andrew for sending that along. Note that this “unrated” cut will be included in the box in two versions: The original English and a German-dubbed version (with German opening and closing credits, and a replacement shot of Loomis writing a letter in German instead of English as in the English version). Again, you can pre-order the set here and you can see the opening packaging below:

Psycho Legacy Collection: Deluxe Edition

All right, that’s all for today. Stay tuned...!

We’ve also heard from Sony that the previously reported 12/18 street date for Venom (which came from retail sources) is not correct. We’re hearing the actual date may be 1/8/19, but the studio would like you to know that officially the title is still TBA. Warner’s Smallfoot now appears to be a 12/11 release. And it looks like Julius Avery’s Overlord is coming to 4K as well, sometime early in 2019 from Paramount. We’ve updated our 4K Ultra HD Release List here at The Bits accordingly.

Also from Sony, look for White Boy Rick on Blu-ray and DVD on 12/25, with the Digital release expected on 12/11.

In other release news, HBO has set The Deuce: Season Two for Blu-ray and DVD release on 2/5/19.

Mill Creek Entertainment is releasing a Blu-ray double feature of The Karate Kid, Part III and The Next Karate Kid on 1/8.

And Lionsgate will release The Oath on DVD on 1/8, with the Digital release on 12/28. They also have American Renegades coming to Blu-ray and DVD on 1/22.

In other news today, if any of you are fans of classic cinema and director Orson Welles, I highly recommend you check out his final film that was recently finished and released on Netflix: The Other Side of the Wind. And I also highly recommend you check out the new documentary about the making of this film on Netflix: They’ll Love Me When I’m Dead. Both are absolutely fascinating insights into to the mind and genius/madness of Welles in his later years. They’re really not to be missed.

Also today, our old friend, director, and longtime special edition producer Robert Meyer Burnett has just posted the first episode of his new Robservations web series on YouTube. It’s meant to be a deep dive into various aspects of pop culture Geekdom. As anyone who knows Rob personally will tell you, he’s the perfect host for such a journey. The first episode is a visit with an old childhood friend in Seattle who’s now a member of the 501st Legion, building screen accurate replica Star Wars costumes and Landspeeders. Yes, Landspeeders. It’s pretty cool... 39 minutes of serious nerdvana. I highly recommend your pour yourself a cup of coffee and check it out here...

And finally today, we have a pair of deaths that must be acknowledged. The first is Canadian actor Douglas Rain, better known to many of you as the voice of the HAL 9000 computer in Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey. He was also one of the founding members of the Stratford Festival. Some of you may not know this, but he also voiced the computer and robot butlers in Woody Allen’s Sleeper (1973). You can read more about him here.

News of this next death came in just as I began working on today’s news post here at The Bits, and it’s a toughie: Stan Lee, the legendary chief writer and editor of Marvel Comics, and creator/co-creator of so many iconic superhero and comic book characters has died this morning at the age of 95. Many, many people around the Internet will be posting tributes and remembrances of Lee today, to which the best I can add is that in all my many years as the editor of The Bits, I can scarcely remember a convention I attended in which I didn’t see Lee, pass him in the hallways, attend one of his panels, or hear his gravely but enthusiastic voice. And every time, it made me smile. He was a force of nature and had a tremendous impact on the entire pop culture universe and all its many inhabitants. He will be missed. You can read more about him here at The New York Times.

That’s all for now, except to send out a nod of thanks in honor of all you veterans out there.

Excelsior.

DAGWOOD'S CHOCOLATE SANDWICHES: National Sandwich Day

 Cache   
What is more fitting than Dagwood's Chocolate Sandwich for National Sandwich Day. I believe that Dagwood probably would have added lots of other ingredients such as bananas and peanut butter, and that would be great, but how can you go wrong with chocolate, butter, and bread?

I've posted several Chocolate Sandwiches over the years,  so today I turn to my "Tie-In" Cookbook collection and specifically Blondie's Cook Book for today's recipe. Dagwood is the iconic King of Sandwiches. My Dad used to make Dagwood Sandwiches... they were sandwiches that contained every thing but the 'kitchen sink'. FYI: My father never added chocolate.

Dagwood Bumstead, in case you don't know, is one of the main characters in comic artist Chic Young's long-running comic strip Blondie. He first appeared in the U.S. sometime prior to February 1933.

What's Cooking America defines the Dagwood Sandwich as a multi-layered sandwich with a variety of fillings. The term is used to denote a sandwich put together so as to attain such a tremendous size and infinite variety of contents as to stun the imagination, sight, and stomach of all but the original maker. Dagwood sandwiches is a term so well-known that it's in the Webster's New World Dictionary.

According to the creator of the comic strip, Murat Bernard “Chic” Young (1901-1973), the only thing that Dagwood could prepare in the kitchen was a mountainous pile of dissimilar leftovers precariously arranged between two slices of bread. Dagwood became known for his huge sandwiches he created on evening forays to the refrigerator. The comic strip is produced today under the direction of the creator's son, Dean Young, the strip has continued to keep up with the times.

Blondie's Cook Book: Chic Young's Classic Cook Book with New Comic Art Selections by His Son Dean Young (Gramercy Books, New York 1947, 1996)

This Comic says it all:


CHOCOLATE SANDWICHES RECIPE: Not sure how many sandwiches (or layers) this is supposed to make, but that's a lot of sugar, even if the chocolate is probably sugarless. I've never followed this recipe, so I'm thinking the amount of sugar might be a mistake.

The five best Brutalist buildings in the District

 Cache   

We published this post on April 13, 2017. We’re sharing it again for a fun read over the weekend.

When Metro began painting the interior of one of its original stations in 2017, the ensuing uproar shone a spotlight on how unpainted concrete surfaces are a part of the area’s architectural heritage. Metro was just one part of a building boom that swept Washington in the 1960s and 1970s, leaving DC with a substantial legacy of Brutalist structures that celebrate the geometry and texture of raw concrete. This post highlights five buildings that combine the Brutalist style with a human scale.

Perhaps Brutalist architecture never got a fair chance because of a false cognate. The public has long misunderstood this least lovable of architectural styles, but several local buildings show that even Brutalism can be beautiful.

In English, “brutal” architecture sounds harsh and cruel. Yet the term originated in French, where “brut” means wild, rough, or unfinished: “brut” Champagnes haven’t been sweetened with added sugar.

Le Corbusier, the controversial Modernist architect, marveled at how reinforced concrete combined steel’s flexibility with concrete’s rigidity. Reinforced concrete could leap in organic curves and span vast distances without support; it could be cast into novel shapes and its surface raked with three-dimensional textures. Corbusier left his concrete structures “brut,” thus inspiring “Brutalism.”

“It does no good to pretend that Brutalist buildings are easy to like, or that everyone can be convinced to like them,” writes New Yorker critic Paul Goldberger. “But ease and user-friendliness are not the only architectural virtues…. The earnestness of the best Brutalism—the belief in the power of architecture that it represents—continues to be inspiring.”

Brutalism’s brash idealism—its emphasis on big and bold shapes, honest use of mass-produced materials, and rejection of elitist finery—combined with its (yes) low costs to make an irresistible choice for its era’s expanding government bureaucracies. Brutalism was “authoritatively civic in the time of Kennedy-era optimism and the Great Society, before US attitudes toward the public realm changed so dramatically that it has become hard to evaluate the aesthetics on their original terms,” write Michael Kubo, Mark Pasnik, and Chris Grimley.

The results surround us here in Washington, where Brutalist buildings house Great Society legacies like HHS and HUD, plus the university libraries of Georgetown and George Washington. Few will mourn other infamous local examples of Brutalism, like the FBI headquarters or the now-demolished Third Church, particularly since they suffer from the clumsy and pedestrian-unfriendly streetscapes common during their era.

But Washington also boasts several buildings that showcase Brutalism’s sculptural and textural possibilities, while also supporting the urban fabric around them.

1. Washington Metro stations, completed in 1976 and onwards by Harry Weese & Associates.

Washington Metro by camera_obscura [busy] licensed under Creative Commons.

Last year, the American Institute of Architects bestowed its 25 Year Award, which goes to an architectural design that has stood the test of time, onto the Metro system.

The “Great Society Subway,” as Zach Schrag‘s landmark book called it, shapes simple concrete into heroic vaults that impart a bit of the capital’s majesty to commutes. The coffered vaults also serve practical purposes, distributing structural loads and keeping sightlines open.

The book District Comics includes a comic-strip retelling of Metro’s design process by Jim Ottaviani and Nick Sousanis.

2. Federal Home Loan Bank Board and Liberty Plaza (now Consumer Financial Protection Bureau), completed in 1977 by Max O. Urbahn Associates (architect), and Sasaki Associates (landscape architect).

Image by the author.

This structure shows that Brutalism can respectfully frame not only a variety of historic buildings but also human-scaled open spaces and the mixed-use street grid. The building shelters a small plaza that is one of the most popular paved plazas downtown.

The Commission of Fine Arts recently panned proposed renovations, saying they “would have the overall effect of transforming noteworthy modernist architecture into a more conventional, contemporary office building.”

3. The American Institute of Architects, completed in 1973 by The Architects Collaborative.

Image by the author.

The AIA’s headquarters stand as an elegant, tiered rear scrim for the curious Octagon House, built in 1801 as one of Washington’s grandest private houses. Although it’s hardly visible from the street, the building’s dynamic boomerang curve stands apart in a city filled with acute angles. The yard interposed between the two buildings, split between a hardscaped plaza on the headquarters side and a soft lawn on the house side, creates a quiet, shaded respite from the busy roads in front.

4. Sunderland Building, completed in 1969 by Keyes, Lethbridge & Condon.

Image by the author.

Just south of Dupont Circle and behind the Heurich House, this office building is just a bit taller than it is wide, but the pattern of window and door openings lighten what could otherwise have been a plain concrete cube. The windows sit deep behind angled frames that score the facade with a grid of of shadows that subtly change depth from different perspectives, while the top floor’s wide porches keep the façades off-center. The ground floor arcade lifts most of the ponderous concrete mass well above the sidewalk.

5. Brewood Office Building, completed 1974, Wilkes & Faulkner

Image by the author.

This tiny townhouse-sized building, a leftover from before the Golden Triangle flowered with hulking office blocks in the 1980s, might inspire a double take. At first glance, the facade’s irregular, flowing texture and drilled “nail holes” read as a wooden structure, but like its high-rise neighbors it’s entirely concrete.

“Board-formed concrete” takes its texture from wood that disappeared years ago—the wooden “formwork” that encased the concrete when it was being poured left its mark, and here, in a hallmark of Brutalism’s attention to process, the architects have celebrated this artifact.

Honorable mentions

In addition to these five buildings, two other buildings garner honorable mentions for being fine examples of Brutalism, although one’s located outside the District and the other had to hide its concrete under limestone panels.

1. Dulles Airport, completed in 1962 by Eero Saarinen.

Dulles Airport by Oren Levine licensed under Creative Commons.

Surely the most striking concrete form in this area is the suspended roofline of Dulles’ soaring terminal. Its roof upends all conventions, dipping inwards with what looks like an unstable curve and inexplicably resting its massive weight upon airy glass walls. Yet this instability subtly reminds us that flight itself is no mean feat of physics. The recessed curtain wall appears like a solid Washingtonian wall of stone columns on the exterior, and on the interior it dissolves into a faceted lens that scatters light throughout the day.

2. Embassy of Canada, completed in 1989 by Arthur Erickson.

Although this building is mostly clad in the federal precinct’s requisite limestone and was completed decades after the others on this list, Erickson has a reputation in his native Canada for sculpting concrete into daring, angular geometries. Here, Erickson allowed unfinished concrete to peek out from underneath the limestone skin in key locations, like this rotunda of columns at the building’s prow.

Here, Erickson allowed unfinished concrete to peek out from underneath the limestone skin in key locations, like this rotunda of columns at the building’s prow.

The five best Brutalist buildings in DC

 Cache   

Perhaps Brutalist architecture never got a fair chance because of a false cognate. The public has long misunderstood this least lovable of architectural styles, but several local buildings show that even Brutalism can be beautiful.

CFPB wide

In English, “brutal” architecture sounds harsh and cruel. Yet the term originated in French, where “brut” means wild, rough, or unfinished: “brut” Champagnes haven’t been sweetened with added sugar.

Le Corbusier, the controversial Modernist architect, marveled at how reinforced concrete combined steel’s flexibility with concrete’s rigidity. Reinforced concrete could leap in organic curves and span vast distances without support; it could be cast into novel shapes and its surface raked with three-dimensional textures. Corbusier left his concrete structures “brut,” thus inspiring “Brutalism.”

“It does no good to pretend that Brutalist buildings are easy to like, or that everyone can be convinced to like them,” writes New Yorker critic Paul Goldberger. “But ease and user-friendliness are not the only architectural virtues…. The earnestness of the best Brutalism—the belief in the power of architecture that it represents—continues to be inspiring.”

Brutalism’s brash idealism—its emphasis on big and bold shapes, honest use of mass-produced materials, and rejection of elitist finery—combined with its (yes) low costs to make an irresistible choice for its era’s expanding government bureaucracies. Brutalism was “authoritatively civic in the time of Kennedy-era optimism and the Great Society, before US attitudes toward the public realm changed so dramatically that it has become hard to evaluate the aesthetics on their original terms,” write Michael Kubo, Mark Pasnik, and Chris Grimley.

The results surround us here in Washington, where Brutalist buildings house Great Society legacies like HHS and HUD, plus the university libraries of Georgetown and George Washington. Few will mourn other infamous local examples of Brutalism, like the FBI headquarters or the now-demolished Third Church, particularly since they suffer from the clumsy and pedestrian-unfriendly streetscapes common during their era.

But Washington also boasts several buildings that showcase Brutalism’s sculptural and textural possibilities, while also supporting the urban fabric around them.

1. Washington Metro stations, completed in 1976 and onwards by Harry Weese & Associates.

Photo by camera_obscura [busy] on Flickr.

Last year, the American Institute of Architects bestowed its 25 Year Award, which goes to an architectural design that has stood the test of time, onto the Metro system.

The “Great Society Subway,” as Zach Schrag‘s landmark book called it, shapes simple concrete into heroic vaults that impart a bit of the capital’s majesty to commutes. The coffered vaults also serve practical purposes, distributing structural loads and keeping sightlines open.

The book District Comics includes a comic-strip retelling of Metro’s design process by Jim Ottaviani and Nick Sousanis.

2. Federal Home Loan Bank Board and Liberty Plaza (now Consumer Financial Protection Bureau), completed in 1977 by Max O. Urbahn Associates (architect), and Sasaki Associates (landscape architect).

This structure shows that Brutalism can respectfully frame not only a variety of historic buildings but also human-scaled open spaces and the mixed-use street grid. The building shelters a small plaza that is one of the most popular paved plazas downtown.

The Commission of Fine Arts recently panned proposed renovations, saying they “would have the overall effect of transforming noteworthy modernist architecture into a more conventional, contemporary office building.”

3. The American Institute of Architects, completed in 1973 by The Architects Collaborative.

AIA

The AIA’s headquarters stand as an elegant, tiered rear scrim for the curious Octagon House, built in 1801 as one of Washington’s grandest private houses. Although it’s hardly visible from the street, the building’s dynamic boomerang curve stands apart in a city filled with acute angles. The yard interposed between the two buildings, split between a hardscaped plaza on the headquarters side and a soft lawn on the house side, creates a quiet, shaded respite from the busy roads in front.

4. Sunderland Building, completed in 1969 by Keyes, Lethbridge & Condon.

Sunderland Building

Just south of Dupont Circle and behind the Heurich House, this office building is just a bit taller than it is wide, but the pattern of window and door openings lighten what could otherwise have been a plain concrete cube. The windows sit deep behind angled frames that score the facade with a grid of of shadows that subtly change depth from different perspectives, while the top floor’s wide porches keep the façades off-center. The ground floor arcade lifts most of the ponderous concrete mass well above the sidewalk.

5. Brewood Office Building, completed 1974, Wilkes & Faulkner

Board formed concrete

This tiny townhouse-sized building, a leftover from before the Golden Triangle flowered with hulking office blocks in the 1980s, might inspire a double take. At first glance, the facade’s irregular, flowing texture and drilled “nail holes” read as a wooden structure, but like its high-rise neighbors it’s entirely concrete.

“Board-formed concrete” takes its texture from wood that disappeared years ago—the wooden “formwork” that encased the concrete when it was being poured left its mark, and here, in a hallmark of Brutalism’s attention to process, the architects have celebrated this artifact.

Honorable mentions

In addition to these five buildings, two other buildings garner honorable mentions for being fine examples of Brutalism, although one’s located outside the District and the other had to hide its concrete under limestone panels.

1. Dulles Airport, completed in 1962 by Eero Saarinen.

Photo by pinelife on Flickr.

Surely the most striking concrete form in this area is the suspended roofline of Dulles’ soaring terminal. Its roof upends all conventions, dipping inwards with what looks like an unstable curve and inexplicably resting its massive weight upon airy glass walls. Yet this instability subtly reminds us that flight itself is no mean feat of physics. The recessed curtain wall appears like a solid Washingtonian wall of stone columns on the exterior, and on the interior it dissolves into a faceted lens that scatters light throughout the day.

2. Embassy of Canada, completed in 1989 by Arthur Erickson.

Although this building is mostly clad in the federal precinct’s requisite limestone and was completed decades after the others on this list, Erickson has a reputation in his native Canada for sculpting concrete into daring, angular geometries. Here, Erickson allowed unfinished concrete to peek out from underneath the limestone skin in key locations, like this rotunda of columns at the building’s prow.

Teatro Manzoni. “Ricette d’amore”, adorabile commedia su “ Don Giovanni” al giorno d’oggi

Teatro Manzoni. “Ricette d’amore”, adorabile commedia su “ Don Giovanni” al giorno d’oggi

ROMA – Un giovanotto adulto, irresistibile, vero macho esaltato dalla palestra, con tatuaggi che gli tappezzano il corpo come carta da parati, suona a un appartamento, nel quale sono riunite quattro amiche, cinto dal solo asciugamano per chiedere aiuto essendo rimasto chiuso fuori casa.

Le donne stavano preparando insieme un esame di arte culinaria ma alla vista dell’aitante sconosciuto, abbandonano in fretta e furia i grembiuli e, come pavoni che fanno la ruota, cercano di conoscere meglio il nuovo arrivato.  Il gruppo femminile è composto di donne indipendenti eppure disarmate di fronte al fascino di questo seduttore senza tempo.   Lo shock delle ragazze è collettivo e, da quel momento in poi, la loro vita si trasforma perché ciascuna vorrebbe piacergli mettendo da parte propositi futuri, sogni d’indipendenza, tranquillità coniugale. Lui sceglierà una di loro? O sarò il solito Don Giovanni? La commedia appaga il quesito con una trovata che cambia la narrazione. Si risolve in un esito non scontato, che risponde alla psicologia femminile attuale perché non ci sono vincitori o vinti, né donne sedotte e abbandonate. 

 Nasce dalla penna di Cinzia BerniRicette d’amore”, divertente e arguta commedia che sta riscuotendo in questi giorni a Roma un successo meritato al teatro Manzoni, grazie anche ai suoi interpreti, alla sua regia, alla scenografia dai toni briosi. La sceneggiatura della Berni, ricca di battute esilaranti non fa ricorso ad alcuna grossolanità d’effetto e mette con intelligenza di buon umore. Nessuna retorica sul maschio che salva o che inganna, dal quale la donna dipenda totalmente. Il Don Giovanni ha pur sempre molte chance ma la sottomissione femminile è soprattutto quella del piacere erotico e naturale, la vendetta non è una condizione necessaria, l’esito non è quello che immaginiamo. Una piéce, firmata da un’autrice contemporanea, che ha respiro classico perché possiede elementi in equilibrio: divertente ma non scevra da riflessioni profonde, caricaturale ma specchio di un costume, farsesca e tuttavia descrittiva della psicologia femminile e maschile.   Interpretata da bravi attori in una scenografia che ne completa l’estro e il buon gusto. Uno spettacolo che val la pena di vedere.

Los andaluces votarán por cuarta vez sin conocer la sentencia de los ERE

 Cache   
El juicio de la rama política del caso ERE, la gran causa contra la corrupción en la Junta de Andalucía en la etapa socialista, no fue el más largo de la historia de España. Pero la macrocausa que reunió en un banquillo a dos expresidentes andaluces y expresidentes federales del PSOE, Manuel Chaves y José Antonio Griñán, a seis exconsejeros y a otros 13 ex altos cargos, va camino de batir otro récord: el del juicio que más tiempo tarda en sentenciarse. Hasta finales de noviembre o principios de diciembre no se conocerá la sentencia. El 10-N los andaluces votarán en las generales -van cuatro citas electorales desde que terminó el enjuiciamiento- sin saber si quienes les gobernaron durante 23 años prevaricaron o/y malversaron hasta 850 millones de euros en fondos públicos mediante un sistema arbitrario y opaco de reparto de ayudas a extrabajadores y empresas en crisis que funcionó durante diez años (2001-2010). Han pasado ya diez y medio desde que el presidente del tribunal, Juan Antonio Calle Peña, emitió su «visto para sentencia» en una sala de la Audiencia Provincial de Sevilla. Fue el pasado 17 de diciembre, justo un año y cuatro días después del inicio de la vista oral, que consumió 152 sesiones en las que se escucharon a unos 120 testigos. El 19 de enero se cumplirán nueve años desde que la juez Mercedes Alaya abrió las diligencias previas. El Tribunal Superior de Justicia de Andalucía (TSJA) acaba de conceder al juez ponente quince días adicionales para que se dedique en exclusiva a redactar una resolución que superará en volumen al del «procés»: más de 1.700 folios, más del triple de páginas (493) que la reciente sentencia de los dirigentes independentistas de Cataluña. El desenlace del caso ERE se ha aplazado y no tendrá ninguna interferencia en la campaña electoral. Un fallo condenatorio habría dinamitado la agenda de Pedro Sánchez, al que todas las encuestas dan como vencedor, y dejado aún más tocada a la secretaria general del PSOE andaluz, Susana Díaz, que se convirtió en presidenta de la Junta tras la forzada marcha de Griñán por el desgaste del caso ERE a finales de agosto de 2013. En cambio, una resolución absolutoria habría desbaratado parte del discurso regenerador de quienes aspiran a relevar a los socialistas en La Moncloa, fundamentalmente PP y Ciudadanos que apelan a la épica de los comicios del 2 de diciembre pasado que acabaron, gracias al sostén de Vox, con casi 37 años de monopolio del PSOE. Integrar más de 50 archivos Los hechos probados y fundamentos de derecho en los que se expone la conducta de los 21 exresponsables acusados está repartidos en más de 50 archivos que tienen que ser incorporados a una sola sentencia. Se trata de una tarea titánica que ha obligado al juez Calle Peña a pedir una nueva prórroga. La sala de gobierno del TSJA ya lo liberó de otras funciones durante seis meses el pasado 26 de febrero para que redactara el fallo. En septiembre renovó esa dedicación exclusiva hasta el 26 de octubre. Agotado el plazo, ha vuelto a concederle 15 días más. Esta resolución, que el presidente del TSJA, Lorenzo del Río, definió como «la más complicada de la historia judicial de España», será determinante para conocer si el núcleo duro del antiguo régimen socialista andaluz estableció un artificio contable para repartir discrecionalmente dinero público. El expresidente José Antonio Griñán, de 73 años, se enfrenta a una petición de pena de seis años de cárcel por supuestos delitos de prevaricación y malversación, mientras que Manuel Chaves, a sus 74 años, podría ser inhabilitado durante una década para ejercer empleo o cargo público por el primero de los delitos. Las declaraciones exculpatorias de los acusados durante la vista oral del caso ERE, que alegaron que desconocían por completo las irregularidades, y los argumentos a favor de los peritos de parte no modificaron en lo sustancial el relato de la Anticorrupción al inicio del proceso. El Ministerio Público sostuvo en su informe final que la antigua cúpula de la Junta diseñó y mantuvo durante una década un sistema que había desactivado los controles de los interventores para conceder ayudas a unas empresas en detrimento de otras, sin que se publicaran unos mínimos requisitos en ningún boletín oficial. Para los fiscales Anticorrupción, el «método ERE» representó «un ejercicio arbitrario de poder» que consumió al menos 680 millones que «nunca debieron salir de las arcas públicas». Falta de pruebas por escrito Las defensas, por el contrario, se agarraron a la imprecisión de los delitos atribuidos a los ex altos cargos para pedir su absolución. Sostienen que no hay pruebas por escrito que demuestren el conocimiento de las irregularidades y niegan que el procedimiento presupuestario y financiero creado para agilizar los pagos de ayudas fuera delictivo, aunque su ejecución dejara mucho que desear hasta propiciar la introducción de intrusos que nunca habían trabajado en ERE de empresas subvencionadas, el reparto de subvenciones anotadas en pósits, episodios sórdidos como compra de cocaína y regalos con dinero público por el chófer del exdirector de Trabajo Francisco Javier Guerrero, o el pago de comisiones desorbitadas a conseguidores como Juan Lanzas.

On one hand, Lois's reaction to Clark's death felt more plausible than in the original story, on the other that reaction was blown out of proportion and scale. I know that this is actually the whole point of this series, to show how thing could have gone much worse in a different time and place... but it still left a terrible aftertaste in my mouth.


I have to say I collect Super-Lois comics, so I was really looking forward to this....and I have to say my reaction is pretty similar.

My general reaction to the entire Metal/Dark Universe/Batman Who Laughs isn't very good and I'm pretty tired of it all.  Mix in the entire JLA/Super Powered Lex Luther (Lex becomes a bland villian when he gets powers) ... and I'm done with the whole thing and wish DC would move on.

There were a few brights spots in all that but mostly it's a giant pile of "is it over yet?" for me.

Bolsonaro bajó a su vice y enviará a un ministro para asunción de Alberto Fernández

 Cache   

Jair Bolsonaro, REUTERSJair Bolsonaro

Luego de anunciar que no asistiría personalmente a la asunción de Alberto Fernández al frente de la Casa Rosada, el presidente de Brasil, Jair Bolsonaro, bajó a su vicepresidente, Hamilton Mourao, de la ceremonia del próximo 10 de diciembre y, en cambio, enviará a un ministro.


El cambio se da en medio de la serie de cortocircuitos que vienen marcando el vínculo entre el titular del Palacio del Planalto y el Presidente electo, incluso desde los tiempos previos a las elecciones primarias del 11 de agosto.


Tras lamentar el triunfo del Frente de Todos en los comicios, el líder del Partido Social Liberal había anticipado que no iba a participar de la ceremonia de asunción de Alberto Fernández.
Hace escasas horas, se había informado que en su lugar asistiría el vicepresidente, Hamilton Mourao.


Sin embargo, este miércoles, la vocera del Palacio del Planalto, Elane Cajazeira, advirtió que se había producido un cambio y que, finalmente, será un ministro quien representará a Brasil en los actos protocolares.

 

Este episodio se suma a las tensiones que comenzaron desde que Fernández ganó en las urnas el pasado 27 de octubre.

 


          

Bolivia: tensión creciente tras un ultimátum opositor para que Morales renuncie

 Cache   

Conflicto en Bolivia, REUTERSProtestas en Bolivia, REUTERS

La oposición a Evo Morales en Bolivia, está reclamando la renuncia del presidente, apoyados por una serie de protestas y movilizaciones contra el resultado de las elecciones.
  

Según indica hoy el diario El País de España, algunos sectores radicales han comenzado a dominar el movimiento de espaldas a los partidos políticos y a Carlos Mesa, el candidato opositor que reunió la mayor cantidad de votos en los comicios.
 

Dice el periódico que las demandas en las calles han cambiado, y que si antes planteaban corregir el resultado electoral para que Evo Morales no fuera declarado ganador y tuviera que medirse en una segunda vuelta con Mesa, ahora buscan la renuncia inmediata del Gobierno y la convocatoria a una nueva elección en la que Morales no participe.
  

Morales pidió un intervalo en las movilizaciones hasta la finalización de la auditoría de las elecciones que está realizando la Organización de Estados Americanos (OEA), que durará aproximadamente dos semanas, pero sólo se hicieron eco del pedido los grupos que habían sido movilizados por él mismo, los campesinos que cortaban caminos y los "rompehuelgas" frente a los opositores.
  

Con la actividad oficial en stand by por el feriado de Todos los Santos, varias ciudades permanecen paralizadas y otras muy convulsionadas por numerosas marchas, vigilias, asambleas, bloqueos de calles y concentraciones multitudinarias que denominan cabildos, en recuerdo de las reuniones municipales del periodo colonial.
  

Algunos analistas consideran que los líderes cívicos plantean ahora nuevas elecciones porque quieren participar en ellas con candidaturas propias. En La Paz, estos dirigentes han propuesto, al mismo tiempo, el "cerco" y, eventualmente, la toma de las instituciones públicas.
  

Varias oficinas estatales de Santa Cruz se encuentran "custodiadas" por dichos grupos cívicos. Sin embargo, las principales oficinas ejecutivas y legislativas, que se alzan en torno a la plaza Murillo, en La Paz, se hallan aisladas del conflicto por un anillo de policías y otro de mineros y campesinos del Movimiento Al Socialismo (MAS).

Humor in Preaching

Jeff Robinson has some pretty good thoughts here. I would add that there are different kinds of humor and so use the type that best fits your personality. Some can do jokes while others excel puns or witticisms. It is akin to the old Ed Wynn saying, "A comic is one who says funny things; a comedian says things funny."
          

Comment on Colt .45 by john k

The "Sidekick" goes Euro,or John's Post Brexit Blues! As much as Margot may dislike Walter Brennan or Gabby Hayes these guys have got nothing on the B Series Western sidekicks. As annoying as these cats can be sometimes often film makers add to the pain by providing them with terrible running gag gimmicks. I remember a Wild Bill Elliott B where his regular sidekick was "Cannonball" played by Dub Taylor. I guess Jerry will know the title of the film but in one of their adventures the producers decided to provide Dub with a xylophone to irritate audiences even further, A very un wise move and Dub referred to the darn thing as a "silly-phone" Silly says it all but we do know that Dub far outlived these type of roles. Still the antics of Dub Taylor Smiley Burnett and friends have nothing on the Italians and Germans who decided to introduce "sidekicks" into their Westerns. In the German made Stewart Granger Winnetou/Old Surehand Westerns we get Croatian actor Milan Srdoc (aka Paddy Fox) as "Old Wabble" The only way I can describe Milan's character is as William Fawcett on speed,if one could imagine such a thing. No doubt The Germans found Milan's antics hilarious. Not to be outdone The Italians had Manuel Muniz as "comic relief" in several Spaghetti Westerns. He appeared in several Giuliano Gemma Westerns. I like Gemma,so handsome,charismatic and athletic, and Courtney Joyner likes him as well so that's fine. I could,however do without Manuel's comic relief especially in THE RETURN OF RINGO where he plays Morning Glory a plant obsessed weirdo! Little Shop Of Horrors has nothing on this guy. When all is said and done....come back Dub and Smiley...all is forgiven!
          

'A Marvelous Life' Holds Stan Lee High As The Man Who Made Superheroes Matter

Jason LaVeris / FilmMagic

In 2018, Marvel Studios released Black Panther. The film grossed 1.3 billion dollars and was nominated for 7 Oscars including Best Picture (a first time for a superhero film).

Beyond the money and awards, the release of Black Panther was a global event. The story of a super-powered African king, leader of the most technologically advanced nation on Earth, allowed the film to address racism and the history of colonial oppression in entirely new and unexpected ways. If anyone was still raising questions about comics mattering for culture, Black Panther meant the definitive end of the argument. Marvel comics and their characters were culture.

So how did we get here? How did superhero comics, the supposed realm of nerdy teenagers, end up conquering the world?

The answer, in many ways, comes down to a single name — Stan Lee. Across a lifetime of creativity, collaboration and endless hustle, Stan Lee saw possibilities no else could imagine and made them real. And if you want to understand how Lee and Marvel did it, Danny Fingeroth's new book A Marvelous Life is the place to start. As a lifelong fan of Spider-Man, The X-Men, Star-Lord and the rest, it was delightful introduction to a guy I'd never met but felt I'd known my whole life.

Fingeroth, who did his own award-winning time at Marvel, begins by laying out the contours of Stan Lee's early life as the son of a Jewish New York immigrant family (Lee was born in 1922 as Stanley Martin Lieber). Through the 1950s, Lee managed to build a solid if unimpressive career working in comics. But then in the late 1950s, the comics industry crashed as TV gave teenage boys a different venue for their interests. By 1960, Lee felt stymied and trapped. He was planning on quitting comics once and for all to do something "important." It was that frustration that led Stan Lee to what Fingeroth calls "a midlife crisis heard 'round the world."

Seeing that other publishers were having some success reviving superhero teams, Lee's boss tasked him with coming up with a new comic. Lee took the assignment, but he didn't just want to create just another group of costumed do-gooders. Instead, he set out to imagine a different vision what it meant to be a superhero.

In this and the work that followed, Lee asked himself what would happen if an ordinary person got superpowers. Would it make their lives better or would it make them harder? What Lee was picturing were superheroes who weren't gods from another world or perfect, infallible examples of human righteousness. Instead, he wanted stories of flawed men and women, full of neurosis and anguish, who suddenly found they could fly or stretch or punch their way through brick walls. What would happen then?

What happened was The Fantastic Four. And then The Hulk. And then Thor and Spiderman and Doctor Strange and Iron Man and The X-men. Over the next few years, Lee along with the equally legendary Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko, managed to create a large fraction of what we now call the Marvel Universe. Many of the characters had huge, real-life challenges like Tony Stark (aka Iron Man) and his drinking problem. That meant these characters lived in a recognizable world. "I wanted to make it as realistic as possible" says Lee in an interview quoted in the book. "Instead of [superheroes] living in Gotham City or Metropolis, I felt I will have them live in New York City." Just as important, these new Marvel characters lived in the same world where they crossed paths, formed alliances (or broke them), had romances (and broke those too), all of which formed one, giant, seamless story.

It wasn't just the stories that were new. Lee saw something few others could recognize — a nascent adult audience for superhero comics. Rather than just a backwater of teenage fantasy, Lee understood that with the right stories, superhero comics could gain relevance in the rapidly emerging world of ever-present mass media. Then Lee went further. He not only saw the change coming, he understood how to become its personification.

Most folks only know Stan Lee through his charming and quirky cameos in modern Marvel films. But if you were serious about comics back in the day (for me "the day" was the mid-1970s when I was 11 years old), Stan Lee was a constant presence. One of Lee's great innovations in Marvel comics was to develop a relationship with his readers through the "Bullpen Bulletins." These were a kind of editor's news and information page where Lee drew back the curtain to let you see what was happening at Marvel's offices. And as Lee described it, something amazing was always happening including the occasional visit from a rock star or famous movie director who'd popped by to express their Marvel admiration.

That was Lee's genius. "Little by little [he] was making himself and Marvel into celebrities" writes Fingeroth. By becoming a regular presence within Marvel's pages Lee was "mythologizing what he and his peers did for a living, making himself and them as important as the characters whose stories they told." But Lee was making us, his readers part of that story too. He was convincing us that we, too, were part of something very important just by buying those slim volumes of The Avengers, Silver Surfer or Nick Fury and His Howling Commandos.

A Marvelous Life gives us strong insights into the forces that drove Lee and Marvel to success. But Stan Lee was also a complex man who could be both beloved and reviled. In particular, Lee's conflicts with collaborators, who felt he had stolen credit for their work, is also an important part of his story. This was particularly true for Jack Kirby. Fingeroth spends some time in the book unpacking Lee's long running dispute with Kirby and others. He also mentions abuse allegations previously noted by media. These sections were not particularly compelling to me, but they are an important part of Lee's legacy and Fingeroth handles them with grace.

One small criticism of the book is that it tells us very little of Lee's response to the founding and runaway success of Marvel Studios (beginning with Iron Man in 2008). That seems a strange omission given how much of Lee's later story is him trying to get Hollywood to pick up Marvel properties.

Taken as a whole though, A Marvelous Life is a must-read for anyone who wants to understand how Stan Lee set Marvel on the path to world domination (in a good way).

Joker, 2019 - ★★

 Cache   

there is a scene in this movie where The Joker dances down some steps to "Rock And Roll Part II" by noted pedophile Gary Glitter, and then the music switches to the film's overbearing orchestral string soundtrack as The Joker continues to dance evilly in slow motion. it was in this moment that i truly couldn't tell if i was watching a self-serious awards hopeful or a dipshit troll's parody of one (the ultimate Joker's trick). i typically like Phillips' brand of noxious comedy but his regular nihilistic streak and toxic masculine psychologizing crumple under the film's portentous middlebrow style. the most telling thing about JOKER is that for a comic book movie about a cartoon clown, it sure is a lot less funny than the Scorsese pictures it's ripping off. this film needs an enema!


          

Rambo: Last Blood, 2019 - ★★★

 Cache   

once again total carnage from Rambo. about as pure a grindhouse movie as you're gonna find in theaters this year, an 80 minute retrograde MAGA revenge fantasy full of morose mumbling and queasy cartel clichés, topped off by a comically violent John J. SKYFALL finale wherein Rambo literally cuts out the beating heart of pure evil. this is more of a throwback than whatever synthwave nostalgiabait is available on your local streaming service shelves. if there's anything to get upset about it's that Rambo is not quite Rambo anymore; the one-time Christlike defender of the oppressed has witnessed so much horror from humankind over the years that he's now a sullen vessel of ownage completely hardened by hate. i liked the zany movie where he goofed around with some Afghan kids more. otherwise, it's impossible to recoil at the politics of something so cartoonish, i mean we're talking about what amounts to a $12 modern day Cannon b-picture (you'll know when you see the BALBOA PICTURES title card complete with Rocky fedora logo) from the director of GET THE GRINGO that features Stallone driving around in front of a soap opera green screen and storming a bordello with a hammer to smash a cartel guy in the dick. i practically expected Sly to announce, "I AM THE WALL" the way he expressed similar sentiments about The Hague to Mad Mel during the climax of EXPENDABLES 3. keep an eye out for the tombstone that reveals Rambo's mother's name to be 'HELGA RAMBO'.

FOTO: i tifosi rosanero rievocano “L’ora legale”, ma con protagonisti Mirri e Di Piazza

 Cache   
ora-epocale

Simpatico post pubblicato dalla pagina “Facebook” RosaNero Photoshop. Attraverso una foto tifosi rosanero hanno infatti rievocato la locandila del film l'”Ora Legale”, pellicola interpretata dal duo comico Ficarra e Picone, sostituendo però i due attori protagonisti con Dario Mirri e Tony Di Piazza. I supporters hanno poi cambiato il titolo del film in l'”Ora Epocale”. “Scusate l’originalità… Grazie SSD Palermo, grazie Mirri, grazie Tony Di Piazza. Cari Ficarra e Picone – pagina ufficiale scusate la sostituzione ma penso apprezzerete… Forza Palermo sempre”. In basso il post in questione.    

L'articolo FOTO: i tifosi rosanero rievocano “L’ora legale”, ma con protagonisti Mirri e Di Piazza sembra essere il primo su Ilovepalermocalcio.


          

Our 2019 Portland Book Festival Picks

 Cache   
Who should you check out? by Suzette Smith

The popular, one-day Portland Book Festival (PBF) returns this Saturday to fill area bookshelves, introduce new voices, and provide authors a spotlight to read and discuss their works. This is the fifth year since local nonprofit Literary Arts took over the floundering Wordstock—they changed the festival’s name last year—and, along the way, we’ve watched the fest get a little stronger: crammed to its gills the first year, better organized the second, and so on. Last year the fest was thriving—if conspicuously stamped with Bank of America branding.

The big names at PBF this year are undoubtedly Malcolm Gladwell and Ambassador Susan Rice, former US National Security Advisor. But here are a few excellent writers that you may not have heard about yet, but who are totally worth checking out. SUZETTE SMITH

Steph Cha

It’s hard to believe that Steph Cha’s Your House Will Pay was only just released, because I’ve been hearing buzz about this book for the entire summer. The hype is warranted. Known for her Juniper Song detective trilogy, Cha stepped outside her usual niche with this novel, though the book is still full of suspense, and her two protagonists—a Korean American woman named Grace Park and an African American man named Shawn Matthews—have many mysteries to unravel. Cha based the novel’s story on the tragic ’91 murder of 15-year-old Latasha Harlins, whose death is considered an inciting cause of the ’92 Los Angeles riots. Neither of her appearances should be missed. (Pop-up reading by “Stars and Bars” in the Hank Willis Thomas exhibition, Sat Nov 9, 11:30 am, Portland Art Museum, 1219 SW Park; “Hard Conversations: Race, Family, America,” 1:30 pm, Whitsell Auditorium, 1219 SW Park, w/Jennine Capó Cruset, Mira Jacob, and Mat Johnson) SUZETTE SMITH

Ebony Flowers

There’s something unforgettable about the way Ebony Flowers draws. At a casual glance, the illustrations are rough, but further reading reveals a detailed, unique cartoonist. Her pages convey the restless energy of childhood, and the non-stop motion that churns in rooms full of people talking and reacting. Flowers’ debut work, Hot Comb, is a memoir and primer on Black hair that pulls no punches about the time and pain involved in hair pressing, relaxing, braiding, and more, but along the way Flowers unlocks way more than hair mysteries. Flowers wraps her short stories of friendship, family, and conflicting viewpoints up under the recurring theme of: “Who did your hair?” The end result is a whole new look into a world many never get to see. (“Finding Home: Fiction of Place,” Sat Nov 9, 12:45 pm, Miller Gallery at the Portland Art Museum, 1119 SW Park, w/Kristen Arnett, Kali Fajardo-Anstine, Stephen Hiltner) SUZETTE SMITH

Rainbow Rowell

There will be crowds for celebrated Young Adult—and now comic book—author Rainbow Rowell, but if you aren’t familiar with the YA genre, would you know? In 2013, Rowell received rave reviews for two intriguing works: Eleanor & Park was a YA book that transcended its intended age range. It described the low-level dread of an abusive relationship with a relatability that we, frankly, don’t see in adult fiction, but without overwhelming its youthful audience. Fangirl was lighter, exploring the social and academic conflicts of a college student who loves writing fan fiction. The really cool thing? Rowell’s next book was that fan fiction: a vampire wizard Harry Potter-esque romance/fantasy story called Wayward Son. And it was GOOD. Rowell’s newest book, Carry On, is the sequel, and, in true magical teen fashion, involves a road trip. Rowell has also been writing Marvel’s Runaways since 2017. In August, she debuted Pumpkinheads, her first original graphic novel, illustrated by Faith Evan Hicks. (“Last Chance: Endings and Beginnings,” Sat Nov 9, 1 pm, The Old Church, 1422 SW 11th, w/ Jennifer Dugan, Faith Erin Hicks, and Alicia Tate; interviewed by Jasmine Guillory, Sat Nov 9, 5 pm, First Congregational United Church of Christ, 1126 SW Park) SUZETTE SMITH

Ross Gay

Over the past decade, Ross Gay has built a following around his open-hearted poems that mix heartbreak and glee. In his latest, The Book of Delights, Gay ventures into prose with a series of short essays about daily pleasures. It’s loose, playful, and thoroughly delightful. Without fail, I leave Gay’s writing feeling renewed and grateful for this messy world, in all its complexities. (“Ordinary Life: Exploring the Spaces Between,” Sat Nov 9, 1:30 pm, Winningstad Theatre, 1111 SW Broadway, w/Michael Dickman, Karen Russell, John Freeman) JOSHUA JAMES AMBERSON

Kevin Huizenga

One of a handful of “style kings” in the world of indie comics, Kevin Huizenga’s clean, detailed cartooning is immediately recognizable. Much of his work alternates between Glenn Ganges—Huizenga’s autobio comic cipher—ruminating on straightforward, suburban happenings, and more experimental comics which break philosophical, in an attempt to show readers how small they truly are in the greater schemes of nature. Huizenga is a deep thinker beloved by deep thinkers. (“Stranger Things: Fiction from the Edge,” Sat Nov 9, 4:45 pm, Miller Gallery at the Portland Art Museum, 1119 SW Park, w/Molly Gloss, Karen Thompson Walker, S. Zainab Williams) SUZETTE SMITH

The Best Movies & TV Shows to Watch in Portland: Fri Nov 8-Thurs Nov 21

 Cache   
Like all good things, this piece involves both Bushwick Bill and Queen Elizabeth. by Erik Henriksen

An Autumn Afternoon & Grave of the Fireflies
Are you sad right now? Do you want to be more sad, but inside a theater? Boy howdy, do we have a double feature for you! (Fri Nov 8-Sun Nov 10, Fifth Avenue Cinema)

Charlie’s Angels
The latest reboot of the old TV show, this time directed by Elizabeth Banks and starring Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott, and Ella Balinska. (Opens Wed Nov 13, various theaters)

The Crown
I don’t know how they did it, but somehow The Crown—a slow, fusty, grandma-friendly show about a bunch of super-rich inbred British people sitting in armchairs and fiddling with silverware—ended up being one of the best TV shows I’ve ever seen. It got me through those awful days after the 2016 election. It introduced me to Vanessa Kirby, which was life-changing. And it’s the only thing my family can talk about at holidays that we all agree on. For The Crown’s long-awaited third season, the world’s only perfect person, Olivia Colman, has joined the cast. We don’t deserve a thing this good. (Streams Sun Nov 17, Netflix) NED LANNAMANN

Dammed to Extinction
With its tinkling piano score, it’s hard to shake the feel-good hippie bullshit vibe, but Dammed to Extinction provides a unique, wide-angle take on the eternal debate over dams in the Pacific Northwest: As dams lead to the deaths of salmon, the deaths of salmon lead to shrinking orca populations. Screening followed by a Q&A with filmmakers and Columbia Riverkeeper’s Brett VandenHeuvel. (Tues Nov 12, OMSI’s Empirical Theater) ERIK HENRIKSEN

Doctor Sleep
In adapting Stephen King’s sequel to The Shining, director Mike Flanagan looks to be channelling Stanley Kubrick as much as King. That’s either brilliant or some Jack Torrance-level madness. (Opens Thurs Nov 7, Overlook Hotel)


{{image:3}}

Ford v Ferrari
Review forthcoming at portlandmercury.com. (Opens Thurs Nov 14, various theaters)

Frankie
Review forthcoming at portlandmercury.com. (Opens Fri Nov 15, Regal Fox Tower 10)

The Good Liar
I’ve been screaming about The Good Liar since August, when I found out that Bill Condon directed an AUSTERE SEXY ENGLISH THRILLER WITH A SEPTUAGENARIAN TWIST starring Dame Helen Mirren and Sir Ian McKellen. I can’t wait to watch the two greatest actors of the Silent Generation eye-fuck one another over a dining room table and double-cross all the way to the bank. (Opens Fri Nov 15, various theaters) SUZETTE SMITH

Harriet
A live-action reimagining of Harriet Tubman’s journey to self-liberation. Harriet doesn’t subject the sensitive viewer to excessive gore or violence (though there is one particularly unsettling scene), because for once, this is a story in the “slave movie” genre about triumph, leadership, and Tubman’s unwavering faith. (Now playing, various theaters) JENNI MOORE

The Irishman
Review forthcoming at portlandmercury.com. (Opens Fri Nov 15, Hollywood Theatre; streams Wed Nov 27, Netflix)

Jojo Rabbit
There’s more to the complicated Jojo Rabbit—set in the waning days of WWII, it focuses on fanatical young Nazi Jojo (Roman Griffin Davis) and his imaginary BFF, Adolph Hitler (Taika Waititi)—than first appears, and only a director as committed, inventive, and life-affirmingly good-hearted as Waititi would even have a chance of pulling it off. He does, to unforgettable effect. (Opens Fri Nov 1, various theaters) ERIK HENRIKSEN

Koyaanisqatsi
Director Godfrey Reggio and composer Philip Glass’ experimental examination of humankind’s relationship with what remains of the natural world. (Fri Nov 15-Thurs Nov 21, Academy Theater; Sun Nov 17, Northwest Film Center’s Whitsell Auditorium)

Kung Fu Theater: Snake in the Eagle’s Shadow
When action master Yuen Woo-ping decided to cast some kid calling himself “Jackie Chan” in this 1978 kung fu flick, Earth became a better place. Screens on 35mm. (Tues Nov 12, Hollywood Theatre)

The Lighthouse
The second film from Robert Eggers, the director of the excellent, wildly disconcerting The Witch, is... funnier than expected? Sure, it’s also fucked-up and intense and distressing, but there are significantly more fart jokes than one might expect. (Now playing, various theaters) ERIK HENRIKSEN

Midway
Jingoistic disaster porn from Roland Emmerich. (Opens Thurs Nov 7, various theaters)

Motherless Brooklyn
Director/star Edward Norton’s decision to turn Jonathan Lethem’s postmodern neo-noir novel into a literal 1950s-set noir is both an asset and a liability. Motherless Brooklyn is easy on the eyes, but the movie’s overlong and unfocused. (Now playing, various theaters) NED LANNAMANN

My Summer as a Goth
The John Hughes-inspired My Summer as a Goth, from Portland filmmakers Tara Johnson-Medinger and Brandon Lee Roberts, is a likable film, despite awkward pacing and its teen characters’ extremely... teenagery performances. Screens as part of Oregon Film’s “Portland Circuit” program, which screens locally produced films in theaters across the city. (Mon Nov 18, Hollywood Theatre; Tues Nov 19, Clinton Street Theater; Wed Nov 20, Cinema 21; Thurs Nov 21, Northwest Film Center’s Whitsell Auditorium) SUZETTE SMITH

Last Christmas
Review forthcoming at portlandmercury.com. (Opens Thurs Nov 7, various theaters)

Pain & Glory
Pedro Almodóvar has long warmed his filmography with flickers of details from his personal life, but Pain & Glory brings us closer to the flame. In it, we look in on Salvador Mallo (Antonio Banderas), a filmmaker in self-imposed exile due to a creative decline and a variety of physical ailments. Banderas stifles his melodramatic tendencies to subtly and powerfully reveal Mallo’s agonies and evolution. (Opens Fri Oct 25, Cinema 21) ROBERT HAM

Parasite
Parasite is director Bong Joon-ho at his very best, a hilarious and deeply unsettling look at class and survival with a gleeful and terrifying twist. (Now playing, Cinema 21, Hollywood Theatre) JASMYNE KEIMIG

Playing with Fire
Remember that early period of the Rock’s acting career, where he was only allowed to make silly-ass kids’ movies or be the Scorpion King? Well, this is like that, but with John Cena. Who sucks. Co-starring Keegan Michael Key, John Leguizamo, and a big dog wearing a fireman’s hat! (Opens Thurs Nov 7, various theaters)


{{image:12}}

Portland Book Festival—Film to Page: Drop Dead Gorgeous & Rushmore
Two exceedingly solid screenings presented by the Portland Book Festival: Rushmore, with a post-film discussion between author Morgan Parker and screenwriter Jon Raymond, and Drop Dead Gorgeous, with a post-film discussion between author Kristen Arnett and the Portland Monthly’sFiona McCann. (Fri Nov 8 & Sat Nov 9, Northwest Film Center’s Whitsell Auditorium)

Queer Commons: By Hook or by Crook
The Hollywood’s ongoing mission to make going to the movies a little more queer continues with a buddy comedy about petty criminals. (Wed Nov 13, Hollywood Theatre)

Repo Man
“I don’t want no commies in my car. No Christians either.” (Fri Nov 8-Thurs Nov 14, Academy Theater)

The Report
The Report is short for “The Torture Report,” which is short for “The Committee Study of the Central Intelligence Agency’s Detention and Interrogation Program,” which is short for the 6,700-page account of one of America’s most horrifying and shameful stretches of history. Expertly distilling an infinitely complicated, infinitely disturbing chain of events, writer/director Scott Z. Burns follows the efforts of increasingly troubled Senate staffer Daniel Jones (Adam Driver, excellent as ever), who, under the oversight of Senator Dianne Feinstein (Annette Bening), works to discover and document the CIA’s continued use of barbaric and ineffective “enhanced interrogation techniques” on prisoners captured after 9/11. Burns spends just as much time studying the failed, Republican-led efforts to cover up America’s war crimes as he does examining both the ways they were justified (“You have to make this work. It’s only legal if it works,” says one CIA official, played by Maura Tierney) and rewarded, with a coda that not-so-subtly alludes to the fact that Gina Haspel, the current director of the CIA, oversaw a black site in Thailand where some of the atrocities documented in the report were committed. (Opens Fri Nov 15, various theaters) ERIK HENRIKSEN

Repressed Cinema: The Criminal Element
16mm shorts focusing on crime, including 1903’s The Great Train Robbery and Vandalism: Fun or Dumb?, “a look at vandalism with 1960s youth.” DAMN YOUTHS! (Tues Nov 19, Hollywood Theatre)

Sonic Cinema: Bushwick Bill: Geto Boy
This documentary about the life and exploits of the Geto Boys’ most famous member dares ask the question: But does it feel good to be a gangsta? Really, though? Director in attendance. (Sat Nov 9, Hollywood Theatre)

The Spanish Prisoner
David Mamet’s 1997 neo-noir starring a very sinister... STEVE MARTIN?? Screens on 35mm. (Sun Nov 10, Hollywood Theatre)


{{image:3}}

Terminator: Dark Fate
The Terminator series’ latest reboot has one thing going for it: Linda Hamilton has returned to play Sarah Connor, which means there’s a Terminator movie worth watching again. Well, it’s worth watching, I guess, if you, like me, have devoted entirely too much of your ever-shrinking lifespan to thinking about terminators. For everyone else, Dark Fate’s appeal—which largely hinges on seeing Hamilton, Arnold, and various bloodthirsty murderbots back in action—might be limited. (Now playing, various theaters) ERIK HENRIKSEN

Underscan: Cult & Genre Reframed: Silent Running
Special effects legend Roger Trumbull’s earnest, silly, eco-conscious sci-fi from 1972 features environmental lecturing, poker-playing robots, and a MarioKart race. (Sun Nov 10, Northwest Film Center’s Whitsell Auditorium)

Watchmen
Watchmen is based on the legendary comics, but it’s not a direct adaptation; rather, the HBO series uses it as background material to tell an entirely new tale set (mostly) in 2019, a story devised by series creator Damon Lindelof, the mastermind behind Lost and The Leftovers. This Watchmen is about racism in America—its history, its evolution, and its implications in daily life. It makes the provocations of Joker look like a bowl of wet noodles. (Sundays, HBO) NED LANNAMANN

Lit Crawl Portland
A boozy jaunt to literary parties all throughout downtown's bars and other nontraditional venues for readings, including stops at the Dorsa Brevia, Kickstand Comedy, Oregon Humanities, Literary Arts, The Big Legrowlski, Valentine's, and more! Click here for a complete schedule and list of participating venues. (Fri Nov 8, 6 pm, Various Locations, free)

Sincerity is Gross: The Dirty Thirdiversary
James Barela's stand-up showcase makes it to its third year on this filthy planet, and if you thought this was the show where some sentimentality and (gasp) sincerity poked its head through the crust, you're pretty sadly fuckin' mistaken: Mr. Barela promises that when Anthony Desamito, Lance Edward, Dylan Carlino, Wendy Weiss, and Diana Potter all take the stage? They're comin' with their nastiest shit, son. (Sun Nov 10, 8 pm, The Slide Inn, free)

Jeffrey Lewis & The Voltage, Wuhlux
What can’t Jeffrey Lewis do? He’s the world’s leading authority on Watchmen, a noted comic book artist, and a brilliant (anti-) folk singer and lyricist. Catch up with him tonight when he brings the latest iteration of his band through the Fixin' To for a Friday-night performance that's guaranteed to lift your spirits heading into the weekend. Fri Nov 8, 8 pm, The Fixin' To, $10)

The I, Anonymous Show
Fuck off, Avengers! When it comes to once-in-a-lifetime superhero team-ups, NOBODY can compete with the lineup of comics that are assembling for the next installment of the Mercury’s beloved I, Anonymous Show! This time around—and in conjunction with the Pacific Crest Comedy Fest—our live show will feature host Kate Murphy, former host Bri Pruett, and former host Caitlin Weierhauser! AND they’re bringing along the hilarious Steven Wilber for the ride! In other words? If you want top-notch comics reading and reflecting on some of the Mercury’s funniest, weirdest, creepiest, and (very occasionally) sexiest submissions to our popular I, Anonymous column, you can’t do any better. And who knows, maybe Hawkeye will show up too. Not like he’s got anything better to do. (Sat Nov 9, 6 pm, Siren Theater, $10) ERIK HENRIKSEN

The Hard Times Live!
The beloved Portland/Bay Area-based satirical punk news site is releasing a book, The Hard Times: The First 40 Years, a ’zine-style retrospective chronicling punk and hardcore from its origins to the present-day. To celebrate the occasion, Hard Times founders Matt Saincome and Bill Conway will head up a reading event at Powell’s, followed directly by this special live show, with a who’s who of Portland comedians bringing the pages of the Hard Times to life in the form of stand-up, characters, A/V presentations, and true behind the scenes stories. (Mon Nov 11, 9 pm, Kickstand Comedy Space, $10, all ages) CHIPP TERWILLIGER

Rose City Art Song
Cult of Orpheus presents this evening of music and poetry, taking Portland writers' words, and giving them voice. Poets include Mo McFeely, Jason Squamata, Coleman Stevenson, and James Yeary, with singers Jocelyn Claire Thomas, Dan Gibbs, Eric Asakawa, and Sadie Gregg. (Fri Nov 8, 7 pm, Valentines, free)

Last Giant, Medicine Bows, The Holdout, Inebriates
There’s a bone-rattling quality to Last Giant’s sophomore album, Memory of the World. Songwriter Ryan Heise’s (ex-System and Station) heavy-handed riffs offer modern rock decadence, gladly wading in the pools of ’70s prog on songs like “The Comedian” and contemporary blues on “Toys for the Devil.” The secret ingredient for the Portland trio is its obvious attention to the details, and Memory of the World boils over with interesting guitar moments, melodic interludes, and catchy harmonies. It’s the type of rock ’n’ roll album that in less finicky times would’ve marked the first rung in a ladder of stratospheric success for a band as talented as Last Giant. With songs as nuanced (if a bit milquetoast) as “Inventory,” the band’s malleability is perhaps its strongest asset. (Fri Nov 8, 8 pm, Turn! Turn! Turn!, $7) RYAN J. PRADO

The Juice: Queer Trap, Bounce, and Footwork Party
DJs Fatherfannie and Mirin Doja head up the latest installment of No Fun's second Saturday queer dance night, serving up out trap, footwork, jersey club, and bounce until 2 am. (Sat Nov 9, 9 pm, No Fun)

(Sat Nov 9, 10 am, TaborSpace, free)

Ariel Gore
Journalist, author, and teacher Ariel Gore returns with Hexing the Patriarchy, detailing over two dozen potions, spells, and magical elixirs in the form of a "magical guide to subverting manboy power, one spell at a time." Gore will be joined in conversation by More Bowstern, Sailor Holladay, Rhiannon Flowers, Felicity Artemis, Anna Doogan & Dani Burlison (Sun Nov 10, 7:30 pm, Powell's City of Books, free)

MusicPortland Gear Fest
Music advocacy program MusicFest takes over Polaris Hall to transform it into a celebration of Portland's music community; not just its performers, but the artists who make the actual instruments and gear those performers communicate with. (Sun Nov 10, noon, Polaris Hall, $5-6)

Sci-Fi Authorfest 13
Your chance to meet, mingle, and get books signed by Sci-Fi authors Terry Brooks, Robin Hobb, Brent Weeks, Fonda Lee, Sebastien de Castell, Shawn Speakman, Caitlin Starling, Jason Gurley, Curtis C. Chen, Brenda Cooper, Kevin James Breaux, Spencer Ellsworth, Ken Scholes, Devon Monk, and Emily Suvada. (Sun Nov 10, 4 pm, Powell's Books at Cedar Hills Crossing, free)

Matt Danger, The Fauxriginals, The Goddamn Alcohol Boogie, Johnny One Thumb
Matt Danger (of Ninjas With Syringes) steps out for a solo show at the Twilight, with the Fauxriginals, the Goddamn Alcohol Boogie, and Johnny One Thumb rounding out what's sure to be a raucous night of punk rock on SE Powell. (Sun Nov 10, 8:30 pm, Twilight Cafe & Bar, $5)

Lily & Madeleine
Lily and Madeleine Jurkiewicz garnered fame early in their career, accruing a larger-than-average number of YouTube hits shortly after exiting high school. Rich with harmonies and angst, the sisters could easily be the soundtrack to your graduation, your first real breakup, or any number of daily existential crises. (Tues Nov 12, 6 pm, Music Millennium, free, all ages) ROSE FINN

Kung Fu Theater: Snake in the Eagle's Shadow
One of the coolest action flicks ever made, Snake not only features a young Jackie Chan—back when he was super-fast, and hadn't yet heard the cursed name "Chris Tucker"—but also an epic fight between a cat and a cobra! Obviously, you should go. (Tues Nov 12, 7:30 pm, Hollywood Theatre, $7-9)

Claire Rudy Foster
Local author Claire Rudy Foster reads from Shine of the Ever, a short story collection that reads like a mixtape of queer and trans voices in 1990s Portland. (Wed Nov 13, 7:30 pm, Powell's City of Books, free)

Lana Del Slay
A cabaret-styled tribute night from Veritable Vagabond, paying homage and respect to take-no-shit-chanteuse Lana Del Rey, featuring performances from Amy Bleu, Lauren Kershner, Rachel Chuganey, Jeni Wren, Annie Vergnetti, Tate AK, Darka Dusty, Osheyana, Whim Grace, and more. (Wed Nov 13, 8 pm, Bit House Saloon, $5)

Well-Read Black Girl Book Club
The American Booksellers Association is teaming up with Well-Read Black Girl founder Glory Edim to bring book club meetings to independent bookstores around the country in an effort to spotlight writers of color and amplify diverse voices. The November installment of the event will focus on Freshwater by Akwaeke Emezi. (Thurs Nov 14, 7 pm, Powell's City of Books, free)

Pulp Romance, Dakota Theim, Bootes Void

The local duo headed up by Jeff Tuyay and Tyler Verigin bring their playful and shapeshifting blend of indie rock, pop, and post-punk to the Black Water Bar to celebrate the release of their latest album, Dim Shit, with friends Meringue, Balloon Club, and Library Studies on hand to round out the all-ages bill. (Thurs Nov 14, 8 pm, Black Water Bar, $6, all ages)

Morgan Murphy
Listen, I’m not saying that Portland is entirely responsible for the success of Morgan Murphy’s career as a stand up and a comedy writer. But isn’t it interesting that she was born here and then went on to great acclaim as a writer for both Jimmy Kimmel and Jimmy Fallon’s late-night talk shows and popular CBS sitcom 2 Broke Girls? That’s not even counting her work on stage where she redefines deadpan delivery for our modern hyperbolic age. All I’m saying is that Portland made Morgan Murphy, and I’m hoping she does the right thing by acknowledging that this weekend. (Fri-Sat Nov 8-9, 7:30 pm & 10 pm, Helium Comedy Club, $17-33) ROBERT HAM

HUMP!
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! When the annual HUMP! amateur porn fest rolls into town, you know you’re going to be in for a hot time in the old town tonight. Don’t miss 21 new, sexy five-minute dirty flicks made by your friends and neighbors here in the Pacific Northwest that represent every stripe of sexual persuasion. Plus you get to vote on the lucky winners who will take home thousands in sweet cash MONEY. Get ready to laugh, squeal, and feel super tingly (down there) because HUMP! audience members have the time of their lives. But don’t delay, tickets for these shows are hotter than what you’ll see onscreen! (Fri-Sat Nov 8-9, 6:30 pm & 9 pm, Revolution Hall, $20-25, through Nov 23) WM. STEVEN HUMPHREY

Mikal Cronin, Shannon Lay
Mikal Cronin possess the uncanny knack for penning effortless-sounding pop gems. On his fourth record, Seeker, he mines his self-introspection and the comeback from a bad case of writer’s block with convincing aplomb, conjuring Tom Petty melodies on the single “Show Me” with help from Ty Segall’s Freedom Band (of which he is a card-carrying member). There’s a lot of inferno-inspired writing coming out of California following last year’s devastating wildfires, and Seeker is no different, exploring ideas of rebirth from destruction. Cronin seems a gentle soul armed with the ability to pull wisdom from a chaotic world. (Fri Nov 8, 9 pm, Mississippi Studios, $15-17, all ages) RYAN J. PRADO

Lit Crawl Portland
A boozy jaunt to literary parties all throughout downtown's bars and other nontraditional venues for readings, including stops at the Dorsa Brevia, Kickstand Comedy, Oregon Humanities, Literary Arts, The Big Legrowlski, Valentine's, and more! Click here for a complete schedule and list of participating venues. (Fri Nov 8, 6 pm, Various Locations, free)

David Sedaris
If you think you’re too cool for David Sedaris—the first of his name, brother of Amy, author of NPR’s old reliable holiday mainstay (c’mon, the Santaland Diaries is GOOD) and such humorist delights as Me Talk Pretty One Day and Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim—you’re lying to yourself and you need to stop. Sedaris’ dry wit is indispensable in trying times. Go get some! (Fri Nov 8, 7:30 pm, Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall, $32.50-57.50) MEGAN BURBANK

Twin Peaks
Chicago-hailing garage rockers Twin Peaks return to town for an all-ages, headlining show supporting their latest album, Lookout Low. (Fri Nov 8, 9 pm, Wonder Ballroom, $18-20, all ages)

Little Hurricane
With the weather growing colder and the sun going down earlier, now is the perfect time for discovering new music at home, especially when the artist in question—dirty blues band Little Hurricane—provides ideal background music for nocturnal snuggling on the couch. Their minimalist blues-rock has been the soundtrack of five Taco Bell commercials, which, as a cheap-burrito lover, almost makes me love the San Diego duo even more. The only thing better than a Friday night is one spent listening to Little Hurricane’s lo-fi sounds. Check out songs like “Haunted Heart,” “Sun Sets West,” and “Give ’em Hell,” and prepare yourself for one mother of a staycation. (Fri Nov 8, 9 pm, Doug Fir, $20-23) KATHERINE MORGAN

Portland Trail Blazers vs. Brooklyn Nets
The Trail Blazers return home for a Friday night game against Kyrie Irving and the new-look Brooklyn Nets. (Fri Nov 8, 7 pm, Moda Center, $31 & Up, all ages)

Jeffrey Lewis & The Voltage, Wuhlux
What can’t Jeffrey Lewis do? He’s the world’s leading authority on Watchmen, a noted comic book artist, and a brilliant (anti-) folk singer and lyricist. Catch up with him tonight when he brings the latest iteration of his band through the Fixin' To for a Friday-night performance that's guaranteed to lift your spirits heading into the weekend. (Fri Nov 8, 8 pm, The Fixin' To, $10)

IRCO Fundraiser

Monsters of Rock PDX
Monsters Of Rock PDX returns to the stage for the first time in 4 years to head up a benefit show for local musician Merrill Hale and his battle with ALS. Expect to hear covers from the likes of Alice In Chains, Soundgarden, Thin Lizzy, and more, with sets spanning the '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s, and 2000s. (Fri Nov 8, 9 pm, Dante's, $20)


Saturday, Nov 9

The Portland Book Festival
This one-day book fair and live reading / discussion event used to be called Wordstock, but no one can deny that Portland Book Festival has grown into its own cool beast. Since it’s only one day, it’s easy to splurge on a bunch of books, get them signed by your favorite authors, and sit in on a talk or two. Then you still have Sunday for laundry and “Book Church,” which is what I call making too much breakfast and sitting around with a huge pile of unread books. If you like the sound of this, but also want to get wild, make sure to scope the always boozy, popular Lit Crawl the night before. (Sat Nov 9, 9 am, Portland Art Museum, $15-20, all ages) SUZETTE SMITH

The Pacific Crest Comedy Fest
Portland’s comedy scene is bonkers (bonkers GOOD) which is why the addition of a brand-new comedy festival that features the greatest comedians from around town and across the nation is very welcome indeed! It’s the Pacific Crest Comedy Fest, featuring Steph Tolev and Maggie Maye; hometown gals made good Caitlin Weierhauser, Bri Pruett, and Amy Miller; local heavy hitters Nariko Ott, Amanda Arnold, Shain Brenden, Kate Murphy, Amanda Arnold; and many more! But that ain’t all: Expect awesome podcasts and regular shows like Earthquake Hurricane, Minority Retort, Speechless, the return of Lez Stand Up, pant, pant, pant… TOO MANY TO MENTION! Good god, that’s a lot of laughs in a short amount of time. (Sat-Sun Nov 9-10, Siren Theater) WM. STEVEN HUMPHREY

Yung Bae, Birocratic
Portland producer Yung Bae brings an array of future funk and disco jams out to Holocene for a two-night hometown stand. (Sat-Sun Nov 9-10, 9 pm, Holocene, $13-17)

Robert Forster
The last time Robert Forster was in the Northwest, it was as a member of the Go-Betweens, performing in Seattle in 2005 during what would become that venerable pop group’s final tour. (Forster’s longtime musical partner Grant McLennan passed away suddenly a year later.) Much has happened in his life since then, including a regular gig as a music critic, an impassioned memoir about his work with McLennan, and three fantastic solo albums. His most recent, Inferno, finds Forster in peak form, with a folk-pop backing band, ambling through his back pages and unblinkingly facing his waning years with grace. (Sat Nov 9, 8 pm, Mississippi Studios, $22-25) ROBERT HAM

Dune Rats
Brisbane-based garage punk trio Dune Rats comes back to Portland for a night of boisterousness finely honed down under. (Sat Nov 9, 9 pm, Bunk Bar, $15)

The I, Anonymous Show
Fuck off, Avengers! When it comes to once-in-a-lifetime superhero team-ups, NOBODY can compete with the lineup of comics that are assembling for the next installment of the Mercury’s beloved I, Anonymous Show! This time around—and in conjunction with the Pacific Crest Comedy Fest—our live show will feature host Kate Murphy, former host Bri Pruett, and former host Caitlin Weierhauser! AND they’re bringing along the hilarious Steven Wilber for the ride! In other words? If you want top-notch comics reading and reflecting on some of the Mercury’s funniest, weirdest, creepiest, and (very occasionally) sexiest submissions to our popular I, Anonymous column, you can’t do any better. And who knows, maybe Hawkeye will show up too. Not like he’s got anything better to do. (Sat Nov 9, 6 pm, Siren Theater, $10) ERIK HENRIKSEN

Max Bemis, Perma, Museum Mouth
Say Anything frontman Max Bemis steps out for a solo show at the Hawthorne Theatre, with Perma and Museum Mouth on-hand to round out the all-ages bill. (Sat Nov 9, 8 pm, Hawthorne Theatre, $19-23, all ages)

Del McCoury Band, The Jacob Joliff Band
Del McCoury's band is a well-oiled machine of precisely plucked strings and high lonesome vocals that should sound positively divine bouncing around the Aladdin Theater tonight. (Sat Nov 9, 8 pm, Aladdin Theater, $42.50-45, all ages) BEN SALMON

Matt Andersen, Gaby Moreno, Liz Vice
The Canadian guitarist and singer/songwriter out of New Brunswick brings his brand of blues through Portland as part of the "Roots Rising" Tour, with Guatemala-hailing folk and blues artist Gaby Moreno and Portland gospel and R&B singer/songwriter Liz Vice rounding out the bill. (Sat Nov 9, 9 pm, Star Theater, $20)

NW Food & Wine Festival
Three of the greatest things on the planet, all at the same time? Food, Wine, and the Northwest combine for a full day of deliciousness, with over 600 wines available to sample, and bites from over 50 restaurants to enjoy. There's beer too, because it's an event in the Northwest so that means there's beer somewhere in there. (Sat Nov 9, 4 pm, Oregon Convention Center, $75-95)

Patrick Sweany
The blues-rock singer/songwriter out of Massillon, Ohio brings his soulful sound back to town for an intimate Saturday-night show supporting his latest album, Ancient Noise. (Sat Nov 9, 8 pm, Polaris Hall, 413-15)

Hell Hath No Funny
You can always count on Siren Nation coming through town and putting together one hell of a lady-centric night of comedy. This year's hell features stand-up sets from local all-stars Katie Nguyen, Susan Rice, Andy Iwancio, Quinne Salameh, and Katie Murphy. (Sat Nov 9, 9 pm, Alberta Street Pub, $12)

Sisters of the Road 40th Anniversary Fundraiser
The 40th anniversary of Sisters of the Road's founding is a momentous occasion, so big that only Darcelle XV could properly star in it, with special guests Commissioner Jo Ann Hardesty, and Sisters co-founder Genny Nelson. The evening will include speakers, musicians, performances, and more. (Sat Nov 9, 5 pm, Billy Webb Elks Lodge, $100)


Sunday, Nov 10

Little Brother
Fresh off the release of their latest album, May The Lord Watch, North Carolina-hailing rappers Phonte and Big Pooh bring their reunited hip-hop act to the Wonder Ballroom stage for an all-ages performance. (Sun Nov 10, 9 pm, Wonder Ballroom, $28-33, all ages)

Blitzen Trapper, The Parson Red Heads
The experimental, folk-country monster pairing of Blitzen Trapper and the Parson Red Heads alone would make for a formidable evening at Revolution Hall, but tonight’s all-ages, fully seated show has a more philanthropic bent. The concert will benefit Do Good Multnomah, a local nonprofit working to assist veterans with housing by way of “relationship-building, one-on-one engagement, supportive services, and direct community participation.” Both bands are staples of Portland’s psych-oriented roots-rock scene and have transcended the city’s confines with their last several albums. Check them out and help a good cause at the same time. (Sun Nov 10, 7 pm, Revolution Hall, $30, all ages) RYAN J. PRADO

Ariel Gore
Journalist, author, and teacher Ariel Gore returns with Hexing the Patriarchy, detailing over two dozen potions, spells, and magical elixirs in the form of a "magical guide to subverting manboy power, one spell at a time." Gore will be joined in conversation by More Bowstern, Sailor Holladay, Rhiannon Flowers, Felicity Artemis, Anna Doogan & Dani Burlison (Sun Nov 10, 7:30 pm, Powell's City of Books, free)

MusicPortland Gear Fest
Music advocacy program MusicFest takes over Polaris Hall to transform it into a celebration of Portland's music community; not just its performers, but the artists who make the actual instruments and gear those performers communicate with. (Sun Nov 10, noon, Polaris Hall, $5-6)

Taylor Tomlinson
Do you need love, or do you need carbs? Taylor Tomlinson says they’re basically interchangeable and anyone who’s ever had baked macaroni and cheese will confirm: carbs are flat-out better. But would we have put this hilarious truth together before Tomlinson swept in like a wildly funny eagle with that gag clenched in her razor-sharp talons? Things I have compared Tomlinson to: a joke-firing machine gun and a powerful eagle. Needless to say, I’m hella excited to hear this up and coming comedian tape her next Netflix special in OUR CITY. Prepare to hear all her best material because THIS is going to be on the internet! (Sun Nov 10, 5:30 pm & 8 pm, Aladdin Theater, $20) SUZETTE SMITH

Sci-Fi Authorfest 13

(Sun Nov 10, 7 pm, Alberta Rose Theatre, $20, all ages)

Sincerity is Gross: The Dirty Thirdiversary
James Barela's stand-up showcase makes it to its third year on this filthy planet, and if you thought this was the show where some sentimentality and (gasp) sincerity poked its head through the crust, you're pretty sadly fuckin' mistaken: Mr. Barela promises that when Anthony Desamito, Lance Edward, Dylan Carlino, Wendy Weiss, and Diana Potter all take the stage? They're comin' with their nastiest shit, son. (Sun Nov 10, 8 pm, The Slide Inn, free)

WHO'S THE MOST VILLAINOUS ACTRESS IN HOLLYWOOD?

femme fataleDid you know that 9% of all women are evil witches while 12% are seductive thieves? Well, according to a study carried out by those lovable goons over at Casino Kings, most women are either killers, corrupt, or Glenn Close, but only when they appear on the silver screen and get paid for the privilege. Allegedly. I think. Touch wood. Fingers crossed. Please don’t kill me, Mummy. Ha!

Fetch Marvel API Heroes with MD5 Hash

 Cache   

Hello, Developers.

 

I Need to fetch this API from Marvel Heroes using Swift 5 - MD5 or some type like that.

 

Marvel develper: https://developer.marvel.com

Authentication for Server-Side Applications

Server-side applications must pass two parameters in addition to the apikey parameter:

  • ts - a timestamp (or other long string which can change on a request-by-request basis)
  • hash - a md5 digest of the ts parameter, your private key and your public key (e.g. md5(ts+privateKey+publicKey)

 

For example, a user with a public key of "1234" and a private key of "abcd" could construct a valid call as follows:http://gateway.marvel.com/v1/public/comics?ts=1&apikey=1234&hash=ffd275c5130566a2916217b101f26150 (the hash value is the md5 digest of 1abcd1234)

 

And,

for a example only - I did it with JavaScript:

 

// Just a part of code... 
...
import md5 from 'js-md5';

// Get yours APIs key at https://developer.marvel.com
const PUBLIC_KEY = ''; // your public key
const PRIVATE_KEY = ''; // youur private key

export default function Heroes({ navigation }) {
  const [feedHeroes, setFeedHeroes] = useState([]);

  useEffect(() => {
      async function loadHeroesCharacters() {
        const ts = Number(new Date());
        const hash = md5.create();
        hash.update(ts + PRIVATE_KEY + PUBLIC_KEY);
        try {
          const response = await fetch(
            `https://gateway.marvel.com/v1/public/characters?ts=${ts}&orderBy=name&limit=10&apikey=${PUBLIC_KEY}&hash=${hash.h ex()}`
          );
// continue
  ... 

 

From now on, I really need to make the same thing with Swift 5. I need to use URLSession and should not to use a another dependecies (CocoaPods) like Alomofire to fetch this API.

But how I use the MD5 - Hashing with Swift 5?

 

Is there somebody who could help me, please?

 

Cheers,

Bruno.

Sánchez da a entender que la Fiscalía sigue sus instrucciones en la euroorden para traer a Puigdemont a España

 Cache   

El choque de Pedro Sánchez y los independentistas aumenta en la recta final de la campaña. El presidente en funciones ha endurecido la batalla legal y dialéctica contra ERC y JxCat. El último episodio comenzó en el debate electoral, cuando se comprometió a traer ante la justicia española a Carles Puigdemont, y ha continuado este miércoles al dar a entender que la Fiscalía ha seguido sus instrucciones al emitir la euroorden para la extradición del expresidente catalán. 

Sánchez aprovechó el debate para cuestionar la labor del PP al frente del Gobierno y, en concreto, de permitir que Puigdemont escapara. "Me comprometo aquí y ahora a traerlo y que sea juzgado por la justicia española", dijo con toda solemnidad. La afirmación fue polémica y el independentismo se revolvió. "¿Me va a secuestrar?", ironizó el expresidente de la Generalitat desde Bélgica. 

En una entrevista en RNE este miércoles, Sánchez ha sido interpelado por esa cuestión y ha defendido la labor de su Gobierno en esa dirección. "Lo estamos haciendo", ha dicho sobre el compromiso de traer a Puigdemont y, a partir de ahí, ha explicado que el juez instructor Pablo Llarena ha solicitado la euroorden contra él y otros exconsellers a instancias de la Fiscalía. "Eso es el Estado", le ha contestado el entrevistador. "¿La Fiscalía de quién depende?", ha rematado Sánchez. El Ministerio Público depende jerárquicamente del Ejecutivo, que designa al Fiscal General del Estado. 

"Estamos esperando a ver cuál es la decisión de la justicia belga", ha señalado Sánchez antes de afirmar: "Estamos haciendo que más pronto que tarde responda ante la justicia". Se ha mostrado convencido del compromiso que adquirió en el debate de que Puigdemont rinda cuentas ante los tribunales españoles. 

Aclaración de Sánchez horas después

Las palabras del presidente del Gobierno en funciones han caído como un jarro de agua fría en la Fiscalía. Las asociaciones de fiscales han reaccionado con dureza contra el líder socialista, que se ha visto horas más tarde y a cinco días de las elecciones obligado a aclarar sus palabras: "La Fiscalía cuenta con el respaldo del Gobierno en la defensa de la Ley y del interés general". Para ese momento, en el PSOE ya había cundido la preocupación por cometer un error y dar munición a los adversarios a las puertas de los comicios.

En las últimas semanas, el Gobierno ha ido endureciendo la posición respecto al independentismo intentando cercarlo en los tribunales. También aprobó un decreto ley para bloquear lo que Sánchez denominó la "república digital". Dos de sus principales anuncios durante el debate electoral también ponían en la diana a la Generalitat: incorporar en el Código Penal la convocatoria de referendos –que justifica en que el independentismo sostiene ahora que volverá a intentarlo– y "acabar con el sectarismo en TV3" mediante la elección de su consejo de administración por mayoría de dos tercios –algo que ya está vigente–. 

"Los independentistas no pueden darte estabilidad"

Esa posición ha incrementado el choque con el independentismo, que carga con dureza contra Sánchez. Gabriel Rufián, candidato de ERC que estuvo dispuesto a investirle tras el 28A, ha reconocido que están "molestos y enfadados" con el PSOE. "Insultó a la escuela pública catalana y a la radio televisión pública", ha apuntado en TVE. "Con este Sánchez no se puede dialogar, hay que debilitarlo. Si queremos un Sánchez mirando a la izquierda hay que derrotarlo, siempre que puede elegir mira a la derecha", ha remarcado.

También el líder de la formación, Oriol Junqueras, ha apuntado en el mismo sentido en una entrevista con Ser Catalunya: "No solo no tenemos nada que hablar, sino que nos tendrá delante"."Estamos más que hartos de sus amenazas y de su inmadurez política", le ha reprochado Junqueras a Sánchez.

En la entrevista en RNE, Sánchez ha disipado la duda que dejó en el debate en el que no quiso rechazar abiertamente el apoyo de las fuerzas independentistas en su investidura. "La estabilidad no te la pueden dar fuerzas independentistas", ha afirmado el candidato socialista, que ha cuestionado que Pablo Iglesias meta en la "ecuación" para un Gobierno de coalición a ERC o JxCat. 

"Somos un partido de izquierdas que aspira a gobernar desde la izquierda para toda España. ¿Las encuestas dicen que voy a tener mayoría absoluta con Iglesias? En la ecuación, ¿Iglesias a qué partidos está metiendo? ¿Tiene garantía de que las fuerzas independentistas van a abstenerse y garantizar la gobernabilidad? Tenemos que ser honestos y también en las sumas", ha explicado. 

Abstención de la derecha y "acuerdo parlamentario" con Iglesias

La fórmula que ve Sánchez es que PP y Ciudadanos se abstengan. "Les pedimos que se abstengan para facilitar el único gobierno posible, bueno, ¿qué problema hay?", se ha preguntado. En esa línea va su propuesta de que el resto de formaciones dejen gobernar a la lista más votada, que da por hecho que será el PSOE. 

Sin embargo, esa 'abstención técnica' no garantizaría la gobernabilidad puesto que no acarrearía una mayoría para sacar adelante los Presupuestos Generales del Estado. Para eso, Sánchez pretende mirar a Unidas Podemos, aunque descarta que forme parte de su gabinete basándose en las "discrepancias" que tienen en asuntos como el conflicto territorial. "Voy a buscar siempre el acuerdo parlamentario. El mejor acuerdo parlamentario es un acuerdo progresista", ha zanjado. 

Sánchez ha desechado la propuesta de Pablo Casado de dimitir si obtiene un escaño menos que en abril. "Me resulta curioso que tenga que asumir responsabilidades la principal fuerza que gana las elecciones", ha dicho Sánchez seguro de que los socialistas volverán a ganar los comicios, a pesar de que la cúpula asume ya que los resultados serán similares al 28A.

Storm At Dawn quietly entered the arena this past weekend on a little table, in a curling arena in the middle of southern BC, Canada. It was an inauspicious launch for the second book in the Rubicon Saga, but it was exactly how I wanted it – no Drama! Well, maybe there could have been

Modalità di partecipazione (Live Auction - asta in contemporanea)

Per la partecipazione on-line alla gara è necessario iscriversi sul sito www.spazioaste.it versando la cauzione a mezzo carta di credito o a mezzo bonifico, secondo le tempistiche dichiarate nella scheda pubblicitaria reperibile sul predetto sito www.spazioaste.it.


Partecipando alla gara on-line dichiaro sin d’ora che
1) la mia offerta è irrevocabile e valida fino ad aggiudicazione definitiva (cioè lotto consegnato) dei lotti di mio interesse;
2) mi impegno sin d’ora a corrispondere il prezzo lordo nella sua interezza, immediatamente, dalla comunicazione che mi verrà fatta con qualsiasi mezzo;
3) dò atto di essere stato informato che, in caso di mio inadempimento, l’I.V.G. potrà a titolo discrezionale dar corso all’annullamento della vendita e, a tale effetto, mi impegno sin d’ora in tal caso a sostenere le spese del nuovo esperimento di vendita che potrà essere disposto ai sensi dell’art. 540 c.p.c.;
4) dò atto di essere stato informato che la validità e l’efficacia della presente offerta sono subordinate alla completezza della documentazione richiesta, da far pervenire in allegato alla distinta di avvenuto bonifico assieme a:

  • copia fotostatica fronte/retro del documento d’identità in corso di validità;
  • visura ordinaria rilasciata dalla CCIAA non oltre tre mesi prima della presente offerta (solo in ……….caso di società);

    Disposizioni generali per la partecipazione le vendite giudiziarie 

sono regolate dagli Artt. 532 – 533 – 534 – 535 – 537 – 540 del c.p.c. dagli Artt.353, 354 c.p., dagli Artt. 2756 – 2761 c.c.

Chiunque, tranne il debitore, può partecipare alle aste purché munito di documenti di riconoscimento validi e non scaduti.
 

È obbligatoria l’identificazione dell’aggiudicatario 

Le aggiudicazioni e l’atto di trasferimento del bene possono essere formalizzati solo a persona presente riconosciuta dagli incaricati I.V.G. attraverso documenti di identificazione sopra detti. In deroga possono essere fatte aggiudicazioni ad utenti della piattaforma www.spazioaste.it la cui registrazione risulta validata dalla piattaforma telematica.
 

Acquisto per società o per un terzo

Mentre è sempre possibile aggiudicare il bene alla propria ditta individuale, per un qualsiasi altro tipo di società sono necessari: una visura camerale (massimo di tre mesi) che attesti le qualifiche, i poteri di acquisto e la rappresentanza legale della persona nei confronti della società e/o la procura. In caso di persona munita di procura sarà necessaria anche la visura per il riconoscimento dei poteri del mandante.

Visione dei beni in vendita con la partecipazione alla gara l’offerente dà atto che il bene è visto e piaciuto.

Quindi appena individuato il lotto da acquistare è sempre meglio vederlo personalmente e testarlo; la visione dei lotti è un diritto che consente di avere una maggiore certezza del bene e delle sue caratteristiche. Infatti, dopo l’aggiudicazione non sarà possibile recedere dalla vendita giudiziaria non essendo tali vendite sottoposte alla garanzia per vizi occulti; ne consegue che eventuali mancanze, differenze, difformità, oneri di qualsiasi tipo, anche se occulti e non conoscibili, della cosa venduta non potranno dar luogo a risarcimenti, indennità o riduzioni di prezzo.

Al momento della vendita è emessa una Bolletta Ministeriale con la quale si trasferisce la proprietà del bene da un soggetto all’altro; è un atto pubblico che in caso di recesso si assoggetta alla Legge sulla turbativa delle aste Artt. 353 e 354 c.p.

Anche per questo motivo i beni in vendita in sala sono a disposizione dell’utenza negli orari indicati su ogni singola scheda.

Comment on Wednesday Weekly Roundup by Victoria Zigler (@VictoriaZigler)

The only way I got even close to 5K most weeks this year is if you count blog posts and comments along with actual writing, so... Yeah. You're way ahead of me on word count, and have the excuse of travelling. I can't even use health as an excuse now I'm officially recovered from all that. I think I kind of pushed myself too hard while dealing with the health stuff though, so I'm not worrying about it too much for now. Planning to get back to my proper productivity starting in the new year. Hopefully by then these last couple of books will be sorted in audio too, so I can get a bit of a break from the publishing side of things while I work on just writing some stuff for a bit (which is probably also a contributing factor in my lack of productivity... I haven't had a single break from the publisher side of things in the last couple of years, because I've had the audiobooks on a production line... So glad I literally just have two more to get finished now, and one of those I should be getting the final version for in about a week). Glad you made some connections, even if Lucca Comics and Games didn't help you achieve anything else, and it rained a lot. Funny about your Mother worrying about losing you guys... I think it's a Mother thing worldwide. ;) We'd adopt you, only our place isn't big enough, and our laws are even less settled than yours at the moment with the whole Brexit thing and all. Kelly'd probably be glad for me to have someone else to talk about my writing to. Haha! Hey, if decluttering feels like the right thing to do, go with it. It can't hurt, and they say decluttering your home can help you declutter your mind too, so maybe it will help you figure things out.

Technical Training Specialist

 Cache   
Tigerpaw is hunting for a customer-focused Technical Training Expert to join our overly caffeinated team of quirky, fun and friendly Tigers.
This person will help onboard our new customers to Tigerpaw with one-on-one phone calls, training, and regular communication. They will drive adoption of the platform by following a pre-designed launch plan to get our customers up and running and using our core products.
As part of the Customer Success Team, you will also have a hand in developing training and educational collateral that helps our customers learn more about Tigerpaw, find a better way of doing things in the platform, and all-in-all propel their business forward by ensuring they are getting the most out of their investment. Documents, webinars, flow charts, excel sheets, even online courses - any of these may be an option as we find ways to best help our clients succeed with Tigerpaw.
Maybe you're the Tiger we're looking for?
You will get to work with our senior trainers and technical writers to create compelling content that educates and delights our customers. However, remember that this is a customer-focused role first and foremost. The successful candidate for this role will have excellent communication skills, be able to multi-task, juggle competing priorities, use critical thinking to make best-judgement calls on elevating customer issues/concerns/lack of tigers in their office (we have been known to send random plush tigers to customers), and work to onboard our clients to the latest and greatest version of Tigerpaw, all while championing the benefits and features of our business automation platform. (It. Does. A. Lot.)
On any given day you may have multiple phone calls with a customer, work with new clients to find out what they want to get out of the product, check in with existing customers to see how they are doing with their software deployment plan, and answer emails for customers and internal Tigers (your co-workers). This role is designed for progression. As you learn more about Tigerpaw and how customers can best use it, you will have more opportunities to do specialized training courses, lead online webinars, and find additional ways to make our customers more successful.
This is a no-silo role where you are empowered to work cross-collaboratively throughout our organization to best set our customers up for success. Need input from development? Just walk down the hall and ask. Have a question from the sales team? They'll be happy to help! (Although a bit distracted if it's the end of the quarter.) You will also work closely with our Support Department and Customer Advocate teams to ensure your customers are getting everything they need to move forward. If you don't like talking with people, then these are not the droids you are looking for. Move along. Move along.
If this does sound like you, if you have a knack for taking the complex and distilling it down into easy-to-understand language, then why not throw your hat into the ring?
At Tigerpaw, we embrace the weird, the odd, the unusual, and the quirky. So much so that we even added "Quirky, Fun and Friendly" as one of our core values. (It's just above the unofficial core values of "Bacon"* and "Shenanigans.")
Summary and responsibilitiesTigerpaw is looking for a customer-focused Technical Trainer to act as our newest Lego Master team member. This person will: -- Coach customers on deploying Tigerpaw software within their organization -- Conduct online training sessions, including: Ask the Expert sessions (like a personalized coaching session with customers), client requested training, and coached software deployment plans. -- Write and update training related documentation and videos. -- Provide classroom training for both clients and internal employees. -- Travel occasionally for training or software deployment purposes - 15% (This year we sent some of our team to a big conference in Orlando: golfing, zip-lining, bowling, and bumper cars may have been involved.)
You may also be called upon to referee inter-departmental trivia contests and assist in the selection of beer and barbecue for team outings.
Qualifications and core competenciesThink you'd be a good fit to join our Streak of Tigers? Here's what we're looking for:-- 2+ years of training experience-- B.S. or B.A. degree from an accredited university or related experience (tell us why your skills make you a good fit for this role)-- Excellent presentation skills-- Great communication skills: verbal, written, smoke cloud-- Effective organization skills (you have a system to keep track of things and get them done)-- Great customer service skills (empathy, understanding, high-fives)-- Basic understanding of CRM software a plus-- Experience using Camtasia or other video editing software a plus -- Ability to establish and maintain a positive and productive working relationship with internal and external audiences-- Willing to work flexible work hours to meet the need of the business requirements, and your customers' businesses.-- Experience in Microsoft Office products: Word, Excel, etc. -- Valid driver's license and dependable transportation-- Comfortable presenting to groups up to 150 people-- Ability to set goals, take action, and achieve goals-- Ability to manage multiple projects-- Able to manage difficult or complex situations and people with tact, confidence, and diplomacy-- Maintain a helpful, professional, and casual relationship with clients (understanding that you will be working with a wide range of different people, titles, and personalities)-- Able to function independently with a minimum of structure-- Able to resolve problems and concerns related to tasks, projects and assignments in a timely and appropriate manner. (If you see you are getting off track, you are comfortable communicating that and seeking help from your team.)

Bonus! You identify with most or all of the following:-- You have a lifelong love of learning and you're not afraid to try new things.-- You can laugh at your mistakes and learn from them.-- You can laugh at your team's mistakes (with them; don't be a jerk), and positively encourage them to continue to DO THE THING!-- You understand what it means to be part of a no-ego team and you like the idea of getting to work with other fun, geeky, driven and productive professionals, multiple-disciplined thought leaders, and super nerds.-- You appreciate a good high-five from a teammate over a great idea or a completed project.-- You like the idea of trading in your blouses and blazers for wearing comic book, video game, or band shirts to work. (And you dig the idea of having a closet full of Tiger-themed work shirts - and yes, we have managed to create some that have a tiger wranglin' a dragon on them.)-- You can take constructive criticism and feedback professionally and use it to help the team.-- You want to learn how to do things better and you enjoy when a teammate shows you a new technique, strategy, shortcut, or random meme.-- You like Star Trek or Star Wars. There is no right answer, but you should probably have an opinion on the matter.-- You are excited to help your team and coworkers (and customers!), but you are also capable of handling your individual projects - and you are always focused on driving projects to completion and success.-- You think silos are incompatible in a modern workplace environment (read: they're stupid) and you welcome the opportunity to work in a no-silo environment where you are encouraged to work and play across department lines, roles, and titles.-- You have an upbeat attitude and you genuinely want to enjoy working with your team.-- The opportunity to be part of a dedicated team of passionate high-performers gets you excited. And the idea of being part of a modern workplace culture of empowered team members gets you pumped in a big way.-- You want to have fun, but also get $h!t done.
This position offers a competitive compensation package in a relaxed, quirky, fun and friendly company culture. You will be expected to dive in quickly, and you will have the backing and support of our entire team. (We may throw you into the deep end of the pool, but we'll give you metaphorical arm-floaty things.)
What are you waiting for? Let's hear your Tiger roar! (That means apply if you think this sounds like a cool gig - and we promise, it is.)
This exciting full-time position will report to our Director of Customer Success.
*Love of bacon is not a requirement for this position. We have several vegetarians and vegans on our team who we fully embrace as our tigery brethren and sistren.

Féminicides : mobilisation à Saint-Denis

 Cache   

Contre les violences faites aux femmes, contre la répression et les intimidations.

À Saint-Denis (93), suite à l’assassinat de Leïla par son compagnon le 3 juillet dernier, une première manifestation, à l’appel de plusieurs organisations, avait regroupé plus de 500 personnes qui s’étaient rendues de la mairie au commissariat central pour crier leur colère devant l’indifférence et le manque de réactivité du commissariat. Leïla avait 20 ans et étudiait à l’université Paris 8. Sa mort, comme toutes les autres, aurait pu être évitée. La veille de son assassinat, elle avait alerté le commissariat de Saint-Denis des violences qu’elle subissait. L’idée de #BalanceTonComico et des rassemblements devant les commissariats est née de cette colère.

Détermination renforcée

Face à la violence du nombre grandissant des féminicides pendant l’été, à l’inaction masquée derrière un Grenelle sans moyens du gouvernement, un inter-collectif d’associations s’est regroupé autour des Dionysiennes pour appeler à deux autres manifestations, les 3 et 11 octobre 2019. C’est dans ce contexte qu’Amel Dahmani, secrétaire du syndicat Sud des communaux de la ville et co-organisatrice de la manifestation, a été convoquée à ce même commissariat, mardi 22 octobre au matin. Le motif (dépôt du parcours en retard et occupation de la voie publique) est apparu bien dérisoire au regard du grave sujet que sont les violences subies par les femmes et l’augmentation des féminicides.

Malgré le début des vacances scolaires et l’heure, 9 heures du matin, pour celles et ceux qui travaillent, ce sont plus de 150 personnes qui ont accompagné solidairement notre camarade et ont attendu sa sortie du commissariat. Une convocation et une mobilisation qui ont renforcé notre détermination à préparer localement et nationalement la journée internationale contre les violences faites aux femmes du 25 novembre prochain.

Aucune manœuvre d’intimidation et de répression n’empêchera le mouvement féministe et les organisations qui le soutiennent de manifester tant que dureront les violences sexistes et sexuelles qui détruisent et tuent des femmes et des enfants !

 Cache   

Available now!

Rated PG

137 minutes

Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham return to their unforgettable roles as Hobbs and Shaw in this action-packed feature from the blockbuster Fast & Furious franchise! For years, hulking lawman Luke Hobbs (Johnson) and lawless outcast Deckard Shaw (Statham) have traded smack talk and body blows. But when cyber-genetically enhanced anarchist Brixton (Idris Elba) gains control of an insidious bio-threat that could alter humanity forever, Hobbs and Shaw must partner up to bring down the only guy who might be badder than themselves!


REVIEW:
Boyfriend overload!!
The Rock, Jason Stathom and Ryan Reynolds in one film. Oh, my!
It was a great story, had tons of action and kick-ass moments. It was comical at times too. Everything I hoped for in this movie was there.
Just make sure you keep watching after the credits. It doesn't end when you think it does.
Watched with the hubby and he is a big fan. His exact words were, 'it was awesome'.
Definitely a great movie to waste time on.

'Watchmen': todo el contenido extra de la serie de HBO que nos estamos perdiendo en España (y más países)

Los que conocéis la obra de Alan Moore sabéis que no se queda contento si no inunda sus cómics de una cantidad ingente de material complementario. Largas parrafadas en forma de falsos artículos de periódicos, revistas o capítulos de libros que ponen aún más en contexto su obra, cubriendo y complementando aspectos que no ha podido tratar en viñetas.

Es algo que podemos leer perfectamente en ‘Watchmen’ y en la secuela televisiva de HBO no han querido ser menos y han puesto a disposición de sus espectadores la Peteypedia, una colección de material complementario que sirve para rellenar huecos y profundizar en el mundo propuesto por Lindelof. ¿El mayor problema? Que no se puede acceder desde España ni desde fuera de EEUU.

Resulta que desde hace unos meses la web oficial de HBO redirecciona a la de HBO España, por lo que si pones la dirección de esta Peteypedia (que alude al personaje interpretado por Dustin Ingram, al que hemos visto por primera vez en el tercer episodio) nos lleva a donde no queremos, ya que la web española carece de este tipo de contenidos.

De esta y de ninguna otra serie. Nos puede gustar más o menos la aplicación de HBO España, heredera de Nordic, como un servicio de vídeo bajo demanda con carencias “vitales” (como esta, o el tema de los inexistentes previouslys), pero casi lo que peor llevo es que todo lo que no sea el capítulo en sí de una serie es sistemáticamente ignorado por la plataforma, restringiendo así la experiencia del espectador y el nivel de obsesión que podríamos llegar a alcanzar con la serie.

Afortunadamente, a pesar de la ausencia de este contenido en español, sí que podemos acceder a los documentos alojados en dicha “Peteypedia” gracias a que los enlaces directos a los pdf no sufren los efectos de la redirección que hay en la web de HBO USA. Algo que, por lo que leo, sucede en otros territorios ajenos.

Así lo que hasta el momento nos encontramos es con estos pdfs en inglés, eso sí, que intentan responder cuestiones del mundo en el que Lindelof nos ha arrastrado:

Nota: evidentemente si no estáis al día con la serie, os encontraréis spoilers.

Episodio 1: Es verano y nos estamos quedando sin hielo

Watchmen 5 5dc1aa6f653fb

The computer and you: un memorandum directo de la mesa del director de FBI para los agentes ante la implementación de un sistema informático. En este documento podemos ver el miedo y la paranoia ludita causada por la catástrofe de Nueva York y cómo desde entonces se prohibió cualquier tipo de tecnología sospechosa de “disminuir” la membrana interdimensional o que provenga de Nueva York.

Tales of the Black Marshal nos cuenta la intrahistoria del clásico del cine mudo 'Trust in the Law', del que tenemos un vistazo nada más comenzar la serie, y cómo la película pudo inspirar a héroes de ficción posteriores como el Llanero Solitario.

Veidt declared death: un artículo realizado a tenor de la declaración legal por parte de organismos de tres continentes sobre la muerte de Veidt. Este artículo indaga en el millonario empresario y sus luces y sombras, incluyendo sus revolucionarios planes durante los noventa y su gradual reclusión hasta el punto de que parece haberse desvanecido por completo de la faz de la Tierra.

Veidt and Rorschach: Probablemente el documento más importante de esta primera tanda es este en el que el agente Dale Petey hace un perfil de ambos personajes de interés, su relación, la influencia y acusaciones del diario de Rorschach y eventos post “Watchmen” ante sus serias dudas del error que sería el abandonar la búsqueda de Veidt.

Episodio 2: Proezas de la caballería comanche

Watchmen 5dc1a9b131369

Tulsa Sheriff Chief Feared Slain: La noticia del periódico en el que se da a conocer la muerte del jefe Crawford nos pone en antecedentes familiares y, además, aclara un par de cosas respecto a la ley que permite a la policía llevar máscaras.

The Road to Reparations: Sumario judicial en torno al caso de los afectados por la masacre de Greenwood, es decir, la matanza de Tulsa de 1921, que supone el primer paso para las "reparaciones" y compensaciones económicas a las víctimas y familiares. Interesante para conocer el clima previo a ese fatídico día.

Masked Vigilantes in Pop Culture: El memorandum del agente Petey va en torno a la emisión de 'American Hero Story: Minutemen', la segunda temporada de la serie. Expresa su preocupación por lo que considera un ejercicio de historia falseada por guionistas de izquierdas en base a lo que se vio en la primera temporada (dedicada a Rorschach).

Episodio 3: La mató la basura espacial

Watchmen Hbo Hooded Justice American Hero Story

Four Letters Evidence: Una carta escrita entre compañeros del Klan. Dirigida al Sheriff Crawdford (abuelo del personaje interpretado por Don Johnson) proveniente del despacho de J. David Keene (el senador que promovió la famosa ley que proscribió el vigilantismo desde 1977) sobre el cuadro que da nombre al segundo episodio (Proezas de la caballería comanche). Sobre la firma del autor de la carta se encuentra la palabra Akia, acrónimo de "A Klansman I Am", una de las firmas comunes de los miembros del KKK.

New Frontiersman: Inflamado editorial que ni La Razón en sus mejores tiempos centrado, al menos al comienzo, en la nominación de John Grisham al Tribunal Supremo (al que no nombra, pero es autor de "La deposición pelícano") para desvariar sobre las elecciones 2020, las posibilidades de Keene para ser el nuevo Presidente y una aclamación del único ser que puede salvar el país: Dr. Manhattan.

Memo: AHS: El agente Petey ha podido ver los dos primeros episodios de 'American Hero Story: Minutemen' y está más preocupado que la semana pasada. A lo largo de dos páginas plasma sus observaciones sobre lo real y lo ficticio en torno a tres de los protagonistas: Justicia Encapuchada, El Comediante y Espectro de Seda y como parecen más inspirados por las memorias de Hollis que por la Historia en mayúsculas.

Wired.com: What Does Crowdsourcing Really Mean?

 Cache   

LCM note:  Karl Rove recently took to the WSJ to discuss how campaigns were changing.  One of his suggestions was that the traditional campaign structure would lose meaning and that individuals outside the structure would take a greater role.  Somewhat related, this is an old interview with Douglas Rushkoff about the original meaning and the very different popular understanding of the term "crowdsourcing."

From religion, novels and back again. The strength of community and the dangers of crowdsourcing

Sarah Cove Interviews Douglas Rushkoff via telephone on May 18, 2007

Douglas Rushkoff is an author, professor, media theorist, journalist, as well as a keyboardist for the industrial band PsychicTV. His books include Media VirusCoercionNothing Sacred: The Truth About Judaism (a book which opened up the question of Open Source Judaism), Exit Strategy (an online collaborative novel), and a monthly comic book, Testament. He founded the Narrative Lab at New York University's Interactive Telecommunications Program, a space which seeks to explore the relationship of narrative to media in an age of interactive technology.

We spoke about the notion of crowdsourcing, Open Source Religion, and collaborative narratives.

Sarah Cove: What is crowdsourcing for you?

Douglas Rushkoff: Well, I haven't used the term crowdsourcing in my own conversations before. Every time I look at, it rubs me the wrong way.

- Sans-faute à Quincampoix en soutien à Thibault

 Cache   

Pour notre second tour de préparation avec Rafale à Quincampoix sur l'Ama 2, le petit brassard orange que je portais en soutien à Thibault s'est bien fait remarquer, de même que ma fantastique ponette !

Lors de notre retour du CCE de Vernoil, nous avons appris que Thibault Fournier avait eu un accident sur le concours de Pompadour (en se rendant sur le cross). Dans le coma, il a été évacué en hélicoptère vers l'hôpital de Limoges dans un état grave. Après ce qui est arrivé à Thaïs, toute la famille du complet s'est mobilisée pour soutenir Thibault et sa famille en portant un brassard orange sur les concours. C'est ce que j'avais décidé de faire sur le CSO de Quincampoix.
.

Nous avions vu que Pauline était engagée dans la même épreuve que moi, en Ama 2. Nous avions appris que Jean-Pierre serait présent sur le concours, ce qui a décidé mon père à nous accompagner.
.


Nous sommes arrivés en milieu de journée. Ayant le n°7, il me fallait préparer Rafale avant la reco. Quand nous avons rejoint le site, nous n'avons rencontré personne de connaissance, pas même mon coach. Au point de nous demander si nous ne nous étions pas trompés d'horaire !  Après vérification sur Internet, il était bien le moment de descendre Rafale du van.  Laurent est arrivé à la fin de ma préparation et je lui ai demandé si ça ne le gênait pas que je porte le brassage en soutien à Thibault. J'ai vite mis le filet à Rafale car la sonnerie annonçait le début de la reconnaissance. De son côté, Papa avait déjà retrouvé son copain Jean-Pierre. 

Le tour était à 115 (afin de préparer notre retour sur 120 au Touquet la semaine d'après). Après un début classique, je devais prendre une option après le double pour attaquer une ligne vertical, six foulées, oxer. Avec Rafale, Laurent me conseillait plutôt sept foulées. Le chrono commençait à la fin de cette ligne. Je devais tourner direct après le 6 pour prendre le 7 de biais. Cela me permettrait de tourner encore ensuite le plus court possible pour aborder un oxer.
.
.
Je devais m'appliquer ensuite pour faire un tracé propre et aborder correctement le second double. Je continuais ensuite avec de nouvelles courbes très serrées pour terminer le parcours. 

Pendant ma reco, mes parents s'étaient relayés pour marcher Rafale, j'ai pu me mettre rapidement au travail. La ponette était bien. En ce moment, à la détente, elle ne cherche plus à sauter 60cm au-dessus de l'obstacle, elle se contente de la hauteur qu'il faut. Comme souvent en Amateur, j'étais sur le seul poney et on me regardait bizarre. Le tour n'était pourtant pas d'une hauteur terrible qui aurait gêné un poon's de participer !


Ça a vite été à moi d'entrer. J'ai montré quelques difficultés à la jument, les combi, les oxers que j'allais prendre de biais... Laurent m'avait dit de l'emmener reconnaître ces courbes mais pas de façon aussi serrée qu'on allait les suivre pour ne pas qu'elle anticipe trop !

En début de tour, Raf m'écoutait très bien. En ce moment, comme les tours ne sont pas encore trop gros, sur l'entrée des combinaisons, je ne sais pas trop comment entrer et je rajoute une foulée. Pour sortir du premier double, la pépette a dû accélérer un peu. Pour aller sur le vertical suivant, j'ai rajouté encore une foulée, par rapport à ce que Laurent m'avait conseillé. Je me suis dit qu'il fallait que je prenne plus de galop et j'ai d'ailleurs entendu mon coach siffler pour m'encourager dans ce sens.


Au moment de tourner plus serré, la jument m'obéissait toujours très bien, elle n'a pas trop essayé de couper le tournant. Je suis arrivée correctement sur le second double alors que beaucoup de cavaliers, à cet endroit, n'arrivaient pas à prendre le bon axe. Par contre, j'ai encore rajouté une foulée... La fin du tour, super.

J'ai pris provisoirement la première place du concours mais il restait plus de 60 concurrents à passer, ça allait forcément évoluer car je n'avais pas été très vite. J'étais contente de ce tour même si je savais que Laurent allait encore me dire que j'en avais fait trop...
 

Quand je suis ressortie de la carrière, j'ai entendu le commentateur parler de mon petit brassard orange « que Laurène arbore en soutien à Thibault Fournier, le jeune cavalier de concours complet accidenté il y a une semaine, et à sa famille ». J'étais heureuse que l'information ait pu être passée à tous.
J'ai fait un grand tour du centre équestre pour faire récupérer Rafale. 

On est resté pour voir passer Pauline . Et on a attendu la remise des prix, j'ai rétrogradé dans le classement mais suis restée aux récompenses, 8e.  Quand je suis venue récupérer les lots, le speaker a encore parlé de Thibault. Merci pour lui !

PLAZA UNIVERSIDAD PREPARANDO EL ASALTO

Rafael del Barco Carreras

Barcelona 7-11-2019. Ayer me atreví demasiado fotografiando. Era evidente que los 'oprimidos' acumulan combustible para se supone las hogueras que han de impedir que los antidisturbios levanten manu militari su organizada acampada. Fui tan imprudente que un mozalvete con pinta de 'profesional' de la lucha callejera me gritó ¡¡¡fotos no!!! "dame el móvil nazi de mierda", mientras extendía un gruesa cuerda de árbol a árbol cortando la calzada principal de la Gran Via.

La foto tenía mala intención. Ahora le diría que no se preocupe que mi blog apenas se encuentra por el 'hackeo' ordenado por sus 'nazis' jefes, y que además ya ni le recuerdo. No sé que le contesté, pero si no diré que salí corriendo, si lo sificiente para escapar de varios 'oprimidos', tipo 'perchas', que se dirigían hacia mí. Las piernas demostraron que aun dan de sí, y me perdí entre los muchos paseantes. Por supuesto no volveré por la Plaza Universidad mientras dure la situación. Situación que no creo dure hasta que liberen a sus adorados 'presos políticos', ni menos hasta la declaración de la República de Cataluña. Otro inútil cuadro, o acto de la comedia del absurdo. Recuerdo que en la Plaza Cataluña de los 'indignados' del Mayo del 2011 donde fotografié a placer nadie me prohibió 'hacer fotos'.  

La escena de acumulación de madera y cartón iniciada mínimo anteayer se realiza tan a la vista, y ya abultan tanto, que me extraña la pasividad de las patrullas de Mossos y Guardia Urbana que se pasean y circulan por la plaza, así como 'infiltrados' que sin duda los hay. Ni menos los equipos de limpieza del Ayuntamiento. Presumo que Via Layetana fuera un ensayo, y que en Plaza Universidad gozarán de un aquelarre propio de una noche de San Juan o de fallas de gran impacto. Los contenedores repletos de cartón y conglomerado o algún mueble presagian un gran espectáculo.

Mi escrito de ¡¡¡hace 5 años!!!

viernes, 7 de noviembre de 2014


Barcelona 7-11-2014. Me han llamado por teléfono preguntándome si sé donde ir a votar, y al responder que no, me preguntan la dirección. Mi amigo contestó la calle de su domicilio, y al insistir con el número, añadió... que hasta aquí habíamos llegado. El voluntario propagandista dijo comprender, y colgó soltando que ya la tenía. Mi amigo se subía por las paredes, en tiempos ordenó que su teléfono no apareciera ni en el listín telefónico, pero era evidente que aparecía en otros listados que ahora manejan "voluntarios civiles", incontrolados de cualquier pelaje captados por esa oscura Asamblea Nacional Catalana. El derecho a la privacidad, y el tan cacareado organismo de “protección de datos”… a hacer gárgaras.  
Alargamos la conversación con las chorradas propias entre íntimos, a él como a mí le interesaba más la deriva de los Pujol, o cómo han arruinado Cataluña, que la total oscuridad creada por la cortina de humo independentista. No es que no supiera donde ir a votar, es que ni quería hacerlo. Insisto, a la mayoría absoluta de los catalanes nos importa un pito el cuento del 9N, aunque parece vital para no más de uno a dos millones. Pero a la mayoría de esa “mayoría absoluta” de los sin voz nos inquieta el final del cuento. Nos cuesta imaginar que a la actual quiebra por expolio le suceda un viaje a ÍTACA, o sea al Averno.  
La conversación acabó con el inmediato ingreso en prisión de los “Núñez y Navarro”. El Caso Hacienda de Barcelona. Otra institución podrida de arriba abajo, corrompiendo y corrompida, y como dijo Borrell, el exministro de Hacienda, testigo cuando debiera sentarse en el banquillo, el “todo Madrid sabía” que el Delegado de Hacienda en Barcelona y su Jefe de Inspección invertían en Bolsa, por supuesto añado con “información privilegiada” por lo que oí en el propio juicio.
 Otro destrozado sumario tras quince años de instrucción que al igual que el de Banca Catalana hubiera acabado con todo el Clan Pujol. Incluir, por las recalificaciones y dobles y triples precios de los terrenos de Diagonal Mar (se citan en el sumario hasta día y hora en el notario) a su hombre de paja John Rosillo (fallecido oportunamente en Panamá), sin citar a los hijos Pujol, y al propio padre, dejaba buena parte del sumario en la incomprensión. Hasta a Javier de la Rosa declaran inocente tras nueve meses de juicio donde Suiza parecía situada a la vuelta de la esquina. Tampoco ningún acusado por Caixa Cataluña en cuyas vacías carpetas de crédito figuraba  por único estudio el “amigo de…”, según confesaron como testigos los propios empleados firmantes de esas carpetas. Prenafeta, también apareció por unos pagos irregulares de la Generalitat… no recordaba nada ¡hacía 20 años!
De aquellos lodos… Rull, coordinador general de CDC,  afirma que habrá urnas,  y Junqueras, el “cabeza de la Oposición en el Parlament”,  se relame con su hoja de ruta hacia la independencia a partir del lunes 10. Si Dios no lo remedia, y soy de los convencidos de que no se mete en estos berenjenales de la deficiente raza humana, tendremos un profesor de Historia Medieval Catalana al frente de los nuevos almogávares conquistando hasta Atenas, tras ocupar Sicilia e Ítaca. Su ilusión de reescribir una historia que por lo visto nunca le agradó. Ignoro que dirían los psiquiatras, pero como catalán de a pié, me crea cierta inquietud.
Ítaca y los Paisos Catalans, el 9N, el derecho a decidir, aplastando el “derecho a conocer” que tenemos todos los catalanes  apaleados por tanto cretino al mando en esa Autonomía convertida en un práctico e impenetrable Estado, o en la Cueva de Alibabá.
Insisto, repito y repetiré; yo, antes de que me lleven a Ítaca, quiero saber quién y cuánto se repartían por las libertades, terceros grados, ¡y permisos! de aquella Modelo de los 90. O sea, quién convertía a un sinvergüenza abogado Piqué Vidal, y un simple juez de instrucción Pascual Estevill, en los dueños de vidas y haciendas de docenas ¡o centenares! de desgraciados extorsionados, por suerte algunos tan poderosos que acabaron ¡sólo! con juez y abogado. Y de atenernos al artículo de otro tétrico personaje “Pilar Rahola”  (La Gran Corrupción: II. PILAR RAHOLA 04 Abr 2008 “Lo sabía toda Barcelona”) conocer los nombres de esos “Toda Barcelona” que me temo coincidan con las flor y nata de los vividores del independentismo, encabezados entonces ¿y ahora?, por el tenebroso Jordi Pujol.

BARCELONA 30 AÑOS DE CORRUPCIÓN.pdf

EN GOOGLE

"En el debate del lunes, fueron Pedro Sánchez y la oposición constitucionalista quienes, en franca competencia con Vox, subieron el tono a la hora de proponer mano dura contra el independentismo, sin representación en el plató de la Academia de la Televisión. Así que este martes, a modo de reacción y salvado ya el ecuador de la campaña, tocaba turno para el soberanismo, que, a cinco días de los comicios, también elevó el volumen del ruido de sables.
Dos reacciones airadas y desafiantes del Parlament y el govern a sendas maniobras del gobierno activadas este martes sintetizan esa dinámica propia de un pulso cronificado."

"El presidente de Ciudadanos en el Parlament, Carlos Carrizosa, ha opinado este martes que el presidente de la Generalitat, Quim Torra, y el del Parlament, Roger Torrent, lanzan consignas de "insurrección" contra el rey Felipe VI desde la cámara catalana que luego se ejecutan "en la calle".
Carrizosa ha protagonizado este martes un acto de campaña en el Born de Barcelona bajo el lema "Cataluña es España", junto a la candidata del partido naranja por Barcelona al Congreso, Carina Mejías, o el concejal en el ayuntamiento de Barcelona Paco Sierra, entre otros dirigentes.
Durante su intervención en el acto, Carrizosa se ha pronunciado en estos términos tras los incidentes registrados anoche en las inmediaciones del Palacio de Congresos, donde la familia real participaba en la entrega de los Premios Princesa de Girona."


 "La cabeza de lista de En Comú Podem en Girona para las elecciones generales del 10 de noviembre, Laura López, ha levantado cierta controversia entre sectores independentistas por una entrevista publicada en el 'Diari de Girona' en la que afirma, al ser preguntada por si Puigdemont es un líder, que "es un vivales"."

Margarita es la nueva secretaria de Educación del PLD; fueron elegidos otros 18 secretarios

 Cache   

Santo Domingo, República Dominicana (EFE y otros servicios de Acento.com.do).-Margarita Cedeño, la vicepresidenta de la República, será la nueva Secretaria de Educación del oficialista Partido de la Liberación Dominicana (PLD), entidad que en la noche de este lunes nombró a los sustitutos de las secretarías que quedaron vacantes tras la renuncia de los dirigentes que se fueron tras la salida de Leonel Fernández de esa organización.
El órgano de dirección peledeísta decidió rechazar la renuncia del senador Euclides Sánchez a sus funciones de secretaria de asuntos gremiales y profesionales del PLD, «por lo cual él se mantiene en ese cargo».
Reinaldo Pared Pérez, secretario general del PLD, también explicó que el comité político cubrió las vacantes generadas en varias secretarías del PLD, a raíz de las renuncias de sus responsables que decidieron respaldar al expresidente Leonel Fernández, quien abandonó la organización oficialista el mes pasado, creando una serie división en la formación gobernante.
En ese orden, dijo que la vicepresidenta Margarita Cedeño de Fernández fue designada al frente de la secretaría de educación del PLD; en asuntos internacionales, el senador Julio César Valentín; dominicanos en el exterior, Alexis Lantigua; soluciones conflictos, Magda Rodriguez; juventud, Carlos Pared Vidal; empresariales, Luisa Fernández, y deportes, Marcos Díaz.
Otras designaciones recayeron en las secretarías de cultura, Melisa Kasse; laborales, Maritza Hernández; cultos, Isabel de la Cruz; desarrollo urbano, Beatriz Ovalles; medio ambiente, Mónica Lorenzo; tecnología, Armando García; económicos, Guarocuya Félix; agropecuarios, Adriano Sánchez Roa; obras públicas, Alejandro Montás; asuntos jurídicos, José Dantés, municipales, Karen Ricardo, y legislativos, José Ramón Fadul.
En otro orden, el comité político del Partido de la Liberación Dominicana (PLD) acordó este martes su respaldo al sistema de voto automatizado utilizado por primera vez en el país durante las primarias simultáneas del 6 de octubre, además de expresar su rechazo al transfuguismo.
El secretario general del PLD, Reinaldo Pared Pérez, destacó que la cúpula peledeísta consideró que el voto automatizado «rindió sus frutos» y obtuvo «resultados óptimos» durante su implementación en las primarias.
Pared, quien dio a conocer las conclusiones de la reunión, también informó que el órgano del PLD apoya las «disposiciones legales» que establecen, aseguró, que quienes participen como precandidatos en una elección interna de un partido no pueden aspirar de nuevo por otra organización con miras a los comicios inmediatamente siguientes.
El dirigente dijo que uno de los pasos de avance de la Ley de Partidos y del Régimen Electoral es que castigan el transfuguismo y que el PLD respalda a la Junta Central Electoral (JCE).
Asimismo, dio a conocer que las diferentes comisiones peledeístas que recorrieron el país a instancias del comité político, entregaron sus respectivos informes sobre la actual situación de la estructura partidaria y que esos datos fueron suministrados a la secretaría de organización y asuntos electorales.
La reunión del comité político la encabezó el presidente Danilo Medina; la vicepresidenta Cedeño de Fernández; Pared Pérez; el presidente interino de la organización, Temístocles Montás, y el candidato presidencial de la organización, Gonzalo Castillo.
No participaron del encuentro, Abel Martínez, Lucía Medina, José Tomás Pérez, Félix Jiménez, Eduardo Selman y Alejandro Montás.EFE

          

Divergencias por alianzas pondrían en peligro unidad PRM

 Cache   


Las alianzas electorales con otras fuerzas políticas de la oposición que está concertando la comisión designada por el candidato presidencial del Partido Revolucionario Moderno (PRM), Luis Abinader, estarían provocando fuertes contradicciones internas que afectan la armonía y la unidad en esa organización política.

El problema ha alcanzado tal magnitud que dirigente altos y medios del PRM están contemplando la posibilidad de “abandonar el barco” para unirse a otras fuerzas.

Un alto dirigente de la organización, que pidió reserva de su nombre, afirmó que el principal cuestionamiento a las gestiones es que son hechas al margen de la dirección ejecutiva del Partido y de la comisión que creó esa organización para negociar alianzas congresuales y municipales con otros opositores.

“Ellos argumentan que la convención del partido otorgó poderes especiales a Abinader para pactar alianzas, en su condición de candidato presidencial, pero el partido es el partido”, dijo.

“Estamos muy preocupados, porque esto está pasando a pocos meses de unas elecciones municipales en febrero, que serán el termómetro para medir lo que podría pasar en los comicios de mayo”, expresó.

Rechazo a Leonel

Asimismo, reveló que un sector del PRM se opone “rabiosamente” a que ese partido pacte una alianza electoral con miras a los comicios del próximo año 2020 con La Fuerza del Pueblo (LFP) creada recientemente por el expresidente Leonel Fernández, a su salida del Partido de la Liberación Dominicana (PLD).

Argumenta que ese sector responsabiliza al leonelismo de las cizañas y las estrategias políticas y electorales que provocaron las divisiones del Partido Revolucionario Dominicano (PRD) y sus posteriores derrotas en las urnas en diversos periodos.
El informante considera que una unidad con Fernández pondría en peligra alianzas electorales ya concertadas con organizaciones opositoras que consideran que no hay diferencias en la dirección del Estado dominicano entre Leonel Fernández y el presidente Danilo Medina.

Pero además, que entre las fuerzas que serían parte de la alianza que se intenta concretizar están partidos como la Fuerza Nacional Progresista (FNP), una organización que tradicionalmente ha sido enemiga del PRD y el PRM.

¿Y los del PRM?
Otro cuestionamiento importante a esas negociaciones, que dirige personalmente el director de campaña de Abinader, Roberto Fulcar, es que los negociadores del PRM están pactando candidaturas de senadurías importantes con otras fuerzas al margen de las aspiraciones de los dirigentes provinciales perremeístas.

En tal sentido mencionó la senaduría de Santiago, que fue cedida al líder del Partido Dominicano por el Cambio (DXC), Eduardo Estrella.

Otra candidatura que estaría provocando “ronchas” en el PRM es la senaduría por La Vega que estaría siendo adjudicada a Ramón Rogelio Genao, secretario general del Partido Reformista Social Cristiano (PRSC).

Igualmente, la candidatura a la senaduría por Hermanas Mirabal, concedida a Bautista Rojas Gómez, alto dirigente de La Fuerza del Pueblo, la organización formada por el expresidente Leonel Fernández.

Un Apunte

Enemigos
Un sector importante del PRM cuestiona que entre los posibles aliados electorales de esa organización para las elecciones de 2020 figure el partido Fuerza Nacional Progresista, que dirigen Vincho Castillo y sus hijos, enemigos tradicionales de esa institución.

The upstate New York town spelled R-I-G-A isn't pronounced like the city in Latvia. Turns out lots of towns and streets have counterintuitive names. Finally, why do we describe being socially competitive as "keeping up with the Joneses"? The Joneses, it turns out, were comic strip characters.

BRADLANDS - BRIAN DE PALMA'S 'DOMINO' IS A PUZZLE

 Cache   

"LIKE SO MUCH OF DE PALMA, DOMINO MAKES US QUESTION THE NATURE OF CINEMATIC ILLUSIONISM"
http://www.angelfire.com/de/palma/bradlandsdomino.jpg

In his Bradlands column at Sight & Sound, Brad Stevens has written a perceptively intriguing review of Brian De Palma's Domino. In the article, Stevens takes into account the complicated nature of the film's production, including the post-production (no, it was not recut from some longer edit, but yes, if De Palma had been involved in the post-production process, the colors would look deeper and the film dialogue would likely sound better, etc., etc.).

There is one small issue I have with Stevens' article. Near the end of it, Stevens writes: "When CIA agent Joe Martin (Guy Pearce) arrives on the rooftop, why does Christian suddenly know his name?" Christian knows to be looking out for a man named Joe Martin via Alex, who is in contact with Wold, and is relaying information to Christian. Joe Martin tells Christian that Wold told him he'd be there, and it is left for the viewer to understand that Christian has also been informed of who is coming.

Stevens links this matter with the more intuitive aspect of Ethan in Mission: Impossible figuring out that Jim Phelps' Bible "reveals him to be the pseudonymous mole ‘Job’" -- Stevens adds that the Bible itself "clearly does no such thing." That whole aspect of Mission: Impossible falls within Ethan's personal interpretations of events and what he knows about Jim Phelps, but the matter in Domino is hardly any kind of stretch, as the eliptical scenes of Alex calling Christian as she heads out of the stadium indicate she will be in further contact as she makes her way over to join him.

Otherwise, Stevens presents Domino as a highly intriguing riddle:

When is a film not a film?

If this sounds like the start of a joke, it is appropriate that the punchline should be: when it’s Brian De Palma’s Domino. For what we are dealing with here is a director who has spent much of his career hoodwinking both audiences and characters.

The deceptiveness of De Palma’s films is usually suggested by a sardonic tone, one insinuating that, just as the protagonists cannot be certain of what they saw, so the viewer cannot be sure this thriller or horror movie isn’t deconstructing the very narrative/visual forms in which it is theoretically embedded.

Even by De Palma’s standards, Domino is an oddity, its status as a product – an object which has passed through all those stages befitting a work intended for commercial distribution – being extremely problematic. Shot in various European locations during 2017, Domino completed post-production in 2018 (the year it is copyrighted), enjoyed its first public screenings in 2019, and begins with a caption reading “June 10, 2020”, implying a slightly futuristic setting while making an auteurist connection with De Palma’s Mission to Mars (2000), whose first scene takes place on “June 9, 2020”.

Domino, which like the director’s previous feature Passion (the subject of an earlier Bradlands column) has gone straight to DVD in the UK, arrives accompanied by tales of behind-the-scenes difficulties.

Interviewed at the Fnac des Ternes bookstore in Paris last June, De Palma explained that “It was a very difficult situation, a film that was underfinanced. I was in many hotel rooms waiting for the money so that we could continue shooting. I was in many fabulous cities, waiting in hotel rooms. I was here 100 days in Europe, and shot 30. However, somehow we managed to make a movie out of this completely chaotic production situation, and hopefully you’ll be seeing it in your local cinemas sometime in the future.”

Despite currently being reluctant to discuss Domino, De Palma has denied rumours that the final cut, clocking in at 89 minutes, was shortened against his wishes (an erroneous original running time of 148 minutes has been cited by reviewers), informing the De Palma a la Mod website that “It was not recut. I was not involved in the ADR, the musical recording sessions, the final mix or the colour timing of the final print.”

These remarks would be little more than gossip did they not speak so directly to the experience of viewing the end result. For this is plainly an unfinished film, patched together from whatever materials happened to be available when the money finally ran out.

De Palma is playing his usual Oedipal games in Domino, whose protagonist, Christian Toft (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), is a Danish police officer who uncovers a terrorist cell after being inadvertently responsible for the death of his older partner, Lars Hansen (Søren Malling). Lars is explicitly positioned as a father-figure to Christian (who refers to him as “my sort-of father”), and it is Christian’s clumsiness that causes his father/partner’s death: he ‘forgets’ his own gun, and has to borrow Lars’s, then, after Lars has his throat slit, manages to lose this gun as well, ‘accidentally’ dropping it as he pursues Lars’s assailant. Christian’s inability to retain the symbolic phallus (he is, in a sense, doubly castrated) is thus almost comically overdetermined, the pursuit (a homage to Hitchcock’s Vertigo) having a suitably dreamlike tone.

Needless to say, after ‘accidentally’ killing the father, Christian must complete his Oedipal trajectory by sleeping with the mother. And since Lars’s wife Hanne (Paprika Steen) is not a viable object for Christian’s desires (she is too obviously ‘the mother’), the film is obliged to provide an alternative in the form of Lars’s young lover Alexandra Boe (Carice van Houten), who, it turns out, is pregnant by Lars. The emergence of an amorous/sexual relationship between Christian and Alexandra is guaranteed not only by the Oedipus Complex, but also by the demands of the narrative, romance being unavoidable in a movie which has two attractive male/female leads investigating a crime together. Yet this romance never actually happens, presumably because De Palma was prevented from shooting scenes relating to it.

There are echoes here of De Palma’s Mission: Impossible (1996), in which Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) must kill his own “sort-of father” Jim Phelps (Jon Voight) after having sex with the symbolic father’s much younger wife, Claire (Emmanuelle Béart). And while there is no ambiguity about Ethan’s having slept with Claire (indeed, this proves to be part of Jim’s scheme), the film remains surprisingly coy on this matter, fading to black after Claire kisses Ethan’s hand. That this act of displaced incest has been ‘repressed’ is all the more striking in that De Palma shot footage showing Ethan and Claire making love, some of which turned up in the trailer (see frame grab below).

Of course, repression is hardly a concept incompatible with Freudian theory, and if evidence of the Oedipal crime is obscured in Mission: Impossible, it is entirely absent from Domino due to an ‘accident’ of production. And as all good Freudians know, there is no such thing as an accident.

Domino proves to be doubly illusory, uniting its protagonist, who keeps ‘accidentally’ losing his phallus/gun, with its director, who ‘accidentally’ loses crucial parts of his film. And this illusion is passed on to the viewer, who had every reason to believe she was watching a completed work.

Domino (a title which, appropriately enough, is meaningless) thus has less in common with De Palma’s earlier output than it does with that version of Erich von Stroheim’s abandoned Queen Kelly (1931) assembled in 1985, juxtaposing fragments of Stroheim’s footage (including stills from lost sequences) with intertitles covering vast acres of scripted material that never went before the camera. Reviewing this for the Monthly Film Bulletin (September 1985), Richard Combs noted a shot of an ocean liner which “lasts several seconds – an eternity, it seems, given the information it conveys, compared to the flurry of titles and stills which have just tucked away so many dramatic developments and reversals in a twinkling”. For Combs, these a-rhythms, “the narrative disappearing after doing busy little mountains of work”, recalled the cinematic practises of Straub-Huillet.

Something of this quality is discernible in Domino’s finale. Despite containing several typical De Palma set pieces in which events that might have occupied a few seconds in ‘reality’ are stretched to breaking point, the film concludes with a brief rooftop scene wherein multiple plot developments are breathtakingly piled on top of each other with no concern for logic, plausibility or consistency. This scene obviously had to be shot hurriedly and at little expense in order to provide some kind of climax, the effect being both absurd and oddly disturbing, as if the film’s primary motivation were to finish unreeling before it could embarrass itself any further.

Which is to say that it does ‘accidentally’, and by contraction, what De Palma’s set pieces (themselves often simultaneously absurd and disturbing) do ‘deliberately’, by expansion. Even random details which, in the absence of those presumably unrealised sequences that might have explained them, make no sense have their antecedents in De Palma’s previous mischievously misleading films, whose main principle of construction would appear to be the aporia. When CIA agent Joe Martin (Guy Pearce) arrives on the rooftop, why does Christian suddenly know his name? One might as well ask why Mission: Impossible demands that the Bible Jim Phelps has stolen reveals him to be the pseudonymous mole ‘Job’ when it clearly does no such thing.

Although the director’s admirers have found little to praise in Domino, this film maudit might appeal to those who usually reject De Palma’s oeuvre as excessively controlled, too micro-managed for anything unplanned to seep in. It even evokes memories of Jacques Rivette’s Out 1 (1971), in which stories and identities are subjected to a process of infinite improvisational expansion that can only end with a return to point zero.

Like so much of De Palma, Domino makes us question the nature of cinematic illusionism, forcing us to ask what purpose images serve beyond the conveying of narrative data which is their ostensible reason for being. That it does this inadvertently is precisely the reason for its fascination.

Grotesque and mirthless humour in "Midnight Hotel" and Morning Yet on Judgement Day"

 Cache   

This paper intends to examine theories of humour in which the comic and the tragic meet through the style and structure of a text. It therefore defines the grotesque along this line and expands our interpretation of Osofisan's satiric pieces in within the ambit of unnatural disordered universe he creates to arouse laugher. This is in contrast to the kind of humour that is mirthless in because the issues in discussion range from the serious and the tragic about the socio-political environment in which the play weaves the plot. In other words, our reception of each of these plays depends on the language and style of the plays to elicit either of the reactions: the grotesque in terms of the comic and mirthless humour in terms of the tragic which are so illustrated in each of the play. The paper concludes that whatever our reaction to each play both are good texts that intend to liberate us through humour from any frustration about the environment in which the texts are situated.

A TRIBUTE TO MY BLOGGER FRIENDS

A TRIBUTE TO MY BLOGGER FRIENDS.
by: Neneng R. Tarigan

Friendship is a unique relationship that knows no difference, cultural or otherwise.~

As bloggers, I think it is part of our obligation to promote our friends' blogs or their web sites in any possible way we can.
Yes, I must admit, sometimes we feel reluctant because some of them are so unmindful even to leave a little comment on our posts; we feel bad about that. However, let us forget about their negative sides for a while and think what we can value and learn from our blogger friends who really have brilliant ideas to put in their blogs, sorts of stories and info that would make our lives as the readers much happier, knowledgeable and colorful.
Let us just remember, how they have made our day full with laughter and curiosity with their intriguing writings, how they can turn our egoism down with their preaches and the wise words as well as poems that they have created or some had been quoted from famous people around the world, or the pictures and traveling experiences they shared with us in their blogs, their cooking recipes, their fashion ideas, their health tips, their amazing pictures, their gigs, their craziness, their cartoons, their love stories, their films, their talent as fortune tellers, their free money making machines, their skill as an IT experts, their gardening, their small agriculture expertise, their arts, their architecture, their free games and thousand others that could color our lives.
This post is a tribute to that kind of friends I have. There are thousands of them, but let us check some of their links and find out why these people deserve a special tribute as friends, though most of them are non professional writers, photographers, film makers, but what they had produced would make us whispers: " Yes indeed, they are really good!"
Here are some recommended links that I am sure you might share my view of their quality. Please take note that the row where I put the names of the bloggers does not represent the rank at all. You may also recommend me more links and categories to be add in this list, but that should not be the links belong to companies or organizations except your own company or organization; I am sure that will be interesting and fun as we could assume it as a little appreciation among us as real bloggers.
I highly value your concern for spending your precious time to check for the links in this list. I wish our works as bloggers would contribute to a greater advantageous to many people around the globe; and most importantly, to create a better connection and to enable us as human beings to live in peace and harmony together.
May God bless our works.
Forever your friend, Neneng Tarigan - Indonesia.

The Biggest Events You Should Know About This Weekend

 Cache   
A weekend guide to the biggest local events. by Stranger EverOut Staff All week long, we've been posting lists of Seattle events to keep you busy, but we realize there's a lot to sort through. So, if you only have time to read one list, make it this one: We've plucked the biggest events you need to know about in every genre, from the HUMP!

America's Test Kitchen Seattle Eats Festival
It’s the return of public TV’s favorite cooking show, America’s Test Kitchen, for the Seattle Eats Festival, which is definitely cause for culinary celebration. The two-day event kicks off at Block 41 with ATK’s Cheers to 20 Years anniversary celebration, a party to benefit local nonprofit FareStart (which helps people experiencing homelessness or poverty with training and jobs in the service industry), and celebrate the release of ATK’s new How to Cocktail cookbook. ATK hosts and test cooks will be on hand (including mains Bridget Lancaster and Julia Collin Davison), with well-regarded local mixologists (like Amanda Reed of Heartwood Provisions) and chefs (Adana’s Shota Nakajima among them) serving bites and cocktails. The main event occurs the following day, with a bevy of local restaurants, cafes, eateries, and the chefs behind them offering food and drink alongside an afternoon of ATK-led cooking demos (like a how-to on Torta Caprese Italian chocolate almond cake, which is gluten-free and all for me), cookbook signings, photo ops, and more. This year’s featured guest chef is venerable Iron Chef-famed Masaharu Morimoto, who just opened a restaurant in Chinatown/ID. LEILANI POLK
Friday-Saturday, Bell Harbor International Conference Center (Downtown)

K’URB Street Food Market Pop-Up

You’ll find milk and dark chocolate, truffles, bonbons, caramels, molten cakes, decadent desserts, and plenty more, in addition to enjoying demos, educational workshops and seminars, cooking classes, and tastings. Look, it’s a shit-ton of chocolate, okay? How can you argue with that? You can’t. Go get blissed. LEILANI POLK
Saturday, Smith Cove Cruise Terminal (Interbay)

Snohomish BrewFest
Choose from 75 beers from over 30 local craft brewers and feast on chicken sliders, brats, mac and cheese, brownies, bacon, and more comfort food. (According to the organizers, some attendees like to adorn themselves with a homemade pretzel necklace, so do with that information what you will.)
Friday, Thomas Family Farm (Snohomish)

This 54th annual parade and observance in Auburn—named Washington's Regional Site for celebrating the holiday by the Veterans Day National Committee and the US Department of Veterans Affairs—features high school marching bands, military vehicles, honor guards, and other such fanfare.
Saturday, Auburn Main Street

Hmong New Year Celebration
Celebrate the Hmong cultural traditions of China, Laos, and Thailand with a New Year celebration replete with a ball-tossing ritual, flower cloth sessions, live performances, and food.
Saturday, Seattle Center

Short Run Comix & Arts Festival
In 2018, Stranger lit critic Rich Smith wrote of Short Run: "You’re going. You’re bringing at LEAST $50 cash. You’re picking up new art books, zines, buttons, and little strips of beautiful screen-printed ephemera from more than 270 internationally/nationally/locally-renowned comics creators." All this applies for the ninth edition of Short Run, only it'll be even bigger. This year's artists will include Jasjyot Singh Hans, Glynnis Fawkes, Marc Bell, Malaka Gharib, and Jul Gordon. (Mexican artist Abraham Diaz will unfortunately not be present, having been denied a visa.) There will also be a screening of a collection of the late, lamented Bruce Bickford's animation, courtesy of Clyde Petersen and friends. Head to the afterparty at the Vera Project once you're done shopping.
Saturday, Fisher Pavilion (Seattle Center)

PERFORMANCES

Beautiful
The dancers of Can Can and powerhouse singer Renee Holiday (formerly Shaprece, who "ranks among the Northwest’s most radiant, soulful vocalists and producers of torch-song-centric electronic music," per Dave Segal) collaborate on this sensuous coming-of-age story, featuring a leading performance by Holiday and new choreography.
Friday-Sunday, Can Can (Downtown)

Dracula
Dracula will be breathed to life yet again when playwright Steven Dietz's adaptation of the Bram Stoker tale is revived and revised specifically for ACT Theatre. In this Dracula, the focus shifts to Mina Murray Harker. Her character has always been ripe for a reckoning or a refresh, or both. She is the source of endless fascination, because she is an obvious heroine in Stoker's novel, pure of heart and mind, and yet she's just as much a casualty of Dracula's desires as her poor friend Lucy. No matter how many gender norms Stoker challenged, it was still the Victorian era. Mina could be given only so much agency. "But to simply make her a victim was super unsatisfying to all of us," director John Langs explained. "So Steven has done some reworking of the story, and she really comes to the forefront. The hunted becomes the hunter in this particular adaptation." LEILANI POLK
Friday-Sunday, ACT Theatre (Downtown)

The Great Moment
Playwright Anna Ziegler earned a lot of attention in 2015 for Photograph 51, a well-received bio-drama about Rosalind Franklin, the woman who discovered DNA. Nicole Kidman played the starring role, everybody loved it, and Ziegler was praised for her "fair-minded and philosophical" (New York Times) approach to character building. Ziegler will likely bring that same talent for creating multidimensional characters to The Great Moment, which will have its world premiere at the Seattle Rep. According to press materials, the story follows a woman named Sarah, who is watching her grandfather slowly die while she raises her son. Alexandra Tavares plays the lead in this, and I've loved everything I've ever seen her in. RICH SMITH
Friday-Sunday, Seattle Repertory Theatre (Seattle Center)

Locally Sourced
Three local choreographers will present three brand-new works for Pacific Northwest Ballet, all of which pique my curiosity for different reasons. Tony-nominated choreographer Donald Byrd often uses dance to examine acts of violence levied against minorities, so it'll be interesting to see how music by Emmanuel Witzthum, who creates warm, morning-light compositions, works into his vision. Bellevue-based choreographer Eva Stone, who produces the CHOP SHOP: Bodies of Work festival, will have a new piece called F O I L. She often challenges assumptions about gender in her work, and her recent collaboration with Au Collective at PNB & SAM’s Sculptured Dance ruled. And PNB corps member Miles Pertl makes his choreographic debut with music from Stranger Genius Award finalist Jherek Bischoff, whose soaring indie compositions always make me feel better about life. RICH SMITH
Friday-Saturday, McCaw Hall (Seattle Center)

Moscow Ballet's Great Russian Nutcracker
A cast of touring ballet dancers from Moscow will take their 27th tour across the United States to perform the Great Russian Nutcracker, which promises puppets and amazing costumes.
Friday, Paramount Theatre (Downtown)

Seattle International Comedy Competition 2019
For nearly all of November, a lengthy last-comic-standing battle rages. Thirty-two comedians (split into two batches, each of which performs every night for one week) start the contest, and one will finish a champion. Celebrity judges and audience reactions determine who passes the preliminaries and who becomes a finalist. See the first week's schedule here.
Friday–Sunday, Various locations

Shout, Sister, Shout!
Rejoice in the music and power of the "Godmother of Rock 'n' Roll," Rosetta Tharpe, the amazing singer and guitarist who transformed American music.
Friday-Sunday, Seattle Repertory Theatre (Seattle Center)

SuicideGirls: Blackheart Burlesque
SuicideGirls Blackheart Burlesque promises geek-friendly burlesque performance, with references to Star Wars, Rick and Morty, Stranger Things, Sailor Moon, and other pop culture favorites.
Friday, Benaroya Hall (Downtown)

The Tempest
Accomplished director Annie Lareau (Cornish College of the Arts' Much Ado About Nothing, many Seattle Public Theater productions), will tackle Shakespeare's fantastical final work about an island wizard, his hot daughter, his nonhuman slaves, and his princely prisoner. This staging will take place in an Edwardian castle, "one of the last periods before media started to infiltrate people's lives."
Friday-Sunday, Center Theatre (Seattle Center)

The Thanksgiving Play
In this holiday comedy, Lakota playwright Larissa FastHorse takes aim at a group of white teaching artists who end up reasserting colonial ideology in their attempt to rid their teaching practice of that very same ideology. According to Jesse Green's review in the New York Times, the more cringe-inducing skits in the show are based on actual school lesson plans lifted from social-media posts: "They include potted history and offensive ditties and, in one case, a suggestion to split the pupils into Pilgrims and Indians 'so the Indians can practice sharing.'" Sounds like it'll be another fine entry into the growing canon of plays about white people fucking up something they're trying to fix. I'm unfamiliar with the actors in the show, but I have no doubt they'll flourish in the highly capable hands of director Kelly Kitchens. RICH SMITH
Friday-Sunday, Seattle Public Theater (Green Lake)

Where is home : birds of passage
You know what's really scary? Concentration camps for asylum seekers at the border, constant ICE raids, border patrol separating children from their parents and not having the administrative infrastructure to unite them, and the state generally doing everything it can to dehumanize people who want to immigrate to this country. In her brand-new—and first-ever (!)—solo show, Where is home : birds of passage, local Italian American choreographer Alice Gosti aims to push back against the xenophobic narratives that drive these anti-immigrant policies. She'll draw from her own history with immigration as well as the larger history of Italian immigration to the United States in a spectacle that will run about three hours. As always with Gosti's work, you'll get to decide how much attention you want to devote to this performance. And the act of making that decision, of course, is part of the performance. RICH SMITH
Friday-Sunday, ACT Theatre (Downtown)

FILM FESTIVALS & OPENINGS

Cinema Italian Style
The Cinema Italian Style is a weeklong SIFF mini-festival featuring the best in contemporary Italian cinema.
Friday-Sunday, SIFF Cinema Uptown (Queen Anne)

'Doctor Sleep' Opening
Danny Torrance, the psychic kid from The Shining, is all grown up—and messed up, understandably. When he meets a girl with the "shining," the same ability as his own, the two allies must fight a cult that tries to exploit their power.

HUMP! Film Festival
The HUMP! Film Festival has been bringing audiences a new kind of porn since 2005. The 15th Annual HUMP! Film Festival festival features 21 short dirty movies—each less than five minutes—all created by people who aren't porn stars but want to be one for a weekend. The filmmakers and stars show us what they think is hot and sexy, creative and kinky, their ultimate turn-ons and their craziest fantasies. Our carefully curated program is a cornucopia of body types, shapes, ages, colors, sexualities, genders, kinks, and fetishes—all united by a shared spirit of sex-positivity. HUMP! is a celebration of creative sexual expression. You will see films at HUMP! that shock you. You will see films at HUMP! that make you laugh. And you will see films at HUMP! that turn you on. You will also be touched by the sincerity and vulnerability with which these films are lovingly made. HUMP!'s main mission is to change the way America sees—and makes and shares—porn. DAN SAVAGE
Friday-Sunday, On the Boards (Queen Anne)

MAJOR CONCERTS & MUSIC EVENTS

CATHEDRALS XXVIII: Jesca Hoop, Ken Stringfellow, Chloe Foy
My first encounter with Jesca Hoop was on a little EP called Kismet I found in a stack of ignored CDs at my college radio station. It was short and intense, with enough winding moonlit passion to power a whole album (which, incidentally, it would do later in 2007). From that moment 12 years ago to 2016's Sub Pop release of her latest, Memories Are Now, Hoop has toured with Shearwater and Andrew Bird, among many other artists, released double digits’ worth of EPs and LPs, and grown in her abilities to maintain a level of sister-wife-survival-guide in a wading pool of folkloric intensities. This album holds promise for continued growth in the mythic forest realm her music inhabits, with a sense of matured centering, an innate feeling that her work has finally found a stronghold from which to blossom. KIM SELLING
Friday, Saint Mark's Cathedral (Capitol Hill)

Emerald City Soul Club 14th Annual Rare Soul Weekender
A residency that’s been active for 14 years is an impressive feat of longevity in a town that can be pretty fickle. So it’s fitting that the anniversary celebration of Emerald City Soul Club—both a monthly event that gets hips shakin’ and asses quakin’, and the DJs who spin those righteously soulful sounds—stretches over several days. The festivities kick off with a meet and greet featuring weekender guest DJs and selectors at the Triple Door. Next, two nights (Friday and Saturday) of main events, Soul Nite #1 and #2, at the usual digs, Lo-Fi; expect rare R&B, soul, Latin, funk, crossover, and modern 45s played by top collectors/DJs from the US and Europe. ECSC DJ and Stranger staffer Mike Nipper gave me a sneak preview of songs that’ll likely be played sometime this weekend: Curtis Lee, “Is She in Your Town”; Joanie Sommers, “Don’t Pity Me”; Bernadette Bascom, “I Don’t Wanna Lose Your Love”; Arnold Blair, “Trying to Get Next to You”; and the Incredibles, "Miss Treatment.” There’s also a Saturday daytime Big Dig Record Swap at Vermillion, and on Sunday, the All-Dayer Soul Survivor Party (actually, 4 p.m. to close) at Screwdriver. In sum, plenty of opportunities to gtf down. LEILANI POLK
Friday-Sunday, Various locations

Fisher, Claptone, Idris Elba, Weiss, Taiki Nulight, Little Fritter, Sean Majors
The All My Friends Seattle crew is back to throw a third major bash after their explosive summer, which will feature sets by Fisher, Claptone, Idris Elba, Weiss, Taiki Nulight, Little Fritter, and Sean Majors on the You Little Beauty Tour.
Saturday, WaMu Theatre (Sodo)

Infected Mushroom
Psychedelic trance innovators Infected Mushroom are a rare duo, combining live performance as a concert band with new explorations in electronica and dance music.
Saturday, the Showbox (Downtown)

Ladies & Gentleman, An Evening with Jason Mraz & Raining Jane
Someone's got to be the less-douchey John Mayer, and there's no better contender than Jason Mraz, a perfectly good guy making perfectly nice music that will not make you cover your ears in horror should you happen to hear it on the radio or in the supermarket. He's funny, humble, pro-gay, and he wears hats. He'll be joined by '90s-bred folk-rock artist Raining Jane. DAVE SEGAL
Saturday-Sunday, Paramount Theatre (Downtown)

The Movie Music of John Williams
If you do not know who John Williams is, do not bother reading what I have to say about him in this blurb. John Williams' greatest achievement as a film composer is his love theme “Han Solo and the Princess” for Han and Leia in The Empire Strikes Back. (You, the pop-culture ignoramus, are still reading! Yes, Williams composed the music for the Star Wars series, and also Jaws, Indiana Jones, and so on, and so on.) This love theme has all of the sensitivity and cheap beauty that made “Spartacus: Love Theme” a jazz standard. If the great jazz pianist Bill Evans were alive today (why don’t some people live forever?), he would have made pure magic out of Williams’s “Love Theme.” CHARLES MUDEDE
Friday-Sunday, Benaroya Hall (Downtown)

Seefeel, Dr. Troy
You could say this is my most anticipated show of 2019; I've been waiting 26 years to catch Seefeel live. Led by guitarist/producer Mark Clifford and vocalist/guitarist Sarah Peacock, the group arose from the UK’s potent shoegaze/post-rock scene, but immediately established themselves as outliers, embracing dubby bass lines and Aphex Twin–like ambience on releases such as More Like Space and Quique. (It made sense that Richard D. James remixed the early Seefeel classic “Time to Find Me.”) Even more blissed-out and ethereal than My Bloody Valentine circa Loveless, Seefeel generated impossibly sensuous whirlpools of sound up through 1994's Starethrough EP. Their aesthetic gradually morphed into an alien strain of IDM while still retaining Seefeel's mesmerizing guitar daubs and disembodied dub vibrations. For this gig, I'm betting on a stunning career retrospective involving radical interpretations of old faves, with possibly some new tracks scattered throughout. DAVE SEGAL
Friday, Neumos (Capitol Hill)

Snails
Bass music heavyweight and general eardrum-crusher Snails will return to Tacoma on his World Of Slime Tour.
Saturday, Tacoma Dome

Young Thug, Machine Gun Kelly, Polo G, Strick
Since catching the ears of the rap cognoscenti with his 1017 Thug mixtape in 2013, Thugger has carved out his own path in popular rap through repetition and oddball yelps, scoring a steady string of singles like smashes “Stoner” and “Danny Glover” to his 2016 Jeffery mixtape, all recorded alongside a cadre of scene-defining producers, including London On Da Trak and Metro Boomin. NICK ZURKO
Sunday, WaMu Theater (Sodo)

READINGS & TALKS

Adrienne Brodeur: Wild Game
Brodeur writes about her very complicated adolescence in this memoir, subtitled My Mother, Her Lover, and Me. At 14, she became her mother's confidante during the latter's affair with her husband's best friend. Entertainment predicts that this tale of terrible parenting, its impacts, and the possibility of reconciliation may be the "next big memoir." Brodeur will read with Danya Kukafka.
Friday, Elliott Bay Book Company (Capitol Hill)

An Evening with David Sedaris
He’s back. One of America’s most beloved writers and humorists returns to Seattle for his annual performance. It’s almost a tradition by now, the yearly visit from David Sedaris, as though your favorite uncle or the best friend you wish you had pops in for a night to read from whatever he’s working through. We’re lucky that way. No word yet on whether his material will be old or new (maybe both?) but, like always, he is sure to amuse. KATIE HERZOG
Sunday, Benaroya Hall (Downtown)

Novel Nights
Raise money for Seattle's most beloved writing center, Hugo House, at this book club series featuring special guests (including the authors, if they're still alive!). The books you'll discuss this weekend are The Lord of the Rings on Friday and The Boys in the Boat (with author Daniel James Brown) on Saturday.
Friday–Saturday, Hugo House (First Hill)

SPORTS & RECREATION

Sounders FC vs. Toronto FC Playoffs
For the third time in four seasons, the Seattle Sounders will take on Toronto FC in the MLS Cup, the post-season championship game of Major League Soccer. If you can't make it to CenturyLink Field to catch the action, watch the game at one of the many local bars and restaurants that will host viewing parties.
Sunday, CenturyLink Field (Pioneer Square)


          

How Russian Immigrant Nikita Oster Translated "Negative Charisma" into a Spot in the Seattle International Comedy Competition

 Cache   
Discover how absurdist Russian-American comic Nikita Oster zoomed through Seattle's thriving scene to earn a spot at the Seattle International Comedy Competition. by Dave Segal
When people tell me that they want to respect my traditions, that’s sort of ethically appalling to me.
"When people tell me that they want to respect my traditions, that’s sort of ethically appalling to me." Mariia Shamfarova

A balding 26-year-old Russian immigrant, Nikita Oster takes the stage on a November night at Laughs Comedy Club, opening for his one of his heroes, Andy Kindler. Forgoing manufactured bonhomie with the audience, Oster immediately cruises into his set. He intones in a grave deadpan with the precision of a serious literature student who mastered a second language with a discipline unknown to most Americans, "Towards the middle of this sentence, you'll find that I have a suspicious accent. It might be European... but it's definitely not one of the good ones."

Thus Oster establishes his distinctive m.o.: sly self-deprecation and a no-bullshit delivery that keeps you hanging on every perfectly timed pregnant pause. He describes his demeanor as "negative charisma," which places the burden of his humor on his words. And Oster's words are among the most acutely funny wafting around Seattle comedy rooms. (He's also one of the rare comics who can trigger hearty laughter merely by stating his age.) Despite only embarking on a comedy career two years ago, Oster has earned a spot at the 40th annual Seattle International Comedy Competition. He's one of 32 comics from all over the world who'll be performing at this prestigious event that takes place this month at various local venues. [See below for more info.]

Oster grew up in Moscow, the son of one of that country's most famous children's authors and scriptwriters for animation, Grigoriy Oster. The young Nikita came of age among the Russian intelligentsia and graduated from high school at age 13. He absorbed its members' elitist attitude toward the popular arts and lowbrow culture while also sharing their suspicion of the government, but now rejects any objective hierarchy about taste and remains open-minded about all forms of artistic expression.

His parents sent him to boarding school in New Jersey and he later studied literature, logic, and philosophy at New York University, where he worked toward a "Language and Mind" degree. "That’s why my parents wanted me to move [out of Russia], even as a kid, because they knew that chances were pretty good that things would turn out the way they did, or worse," Oster says in an interview in a communal space at his Queen Anne apartment building. He also spent time in Amsterdam studying formal logic, but he felt like a fraud doing that. His primary interest was in storytelling.

"Most of my influences were literary when I was growing up," Oster says. "Because my father is a writer, I expected myself to be a writer, and from pretty early on, I would act in that certain way that some obnoxious kids act, when they’re convinced that they’re going to be doing an 'art.'" Reading Russian authors such as Vladimir Nabokov, Andrei Platonov, and the Oberiu society of Russian absurdists in the early 20th century contributed to Oster's "taste for existentialism and a certain kind of sadness."

Oster relates that during his childhood, Russia had no stand-up comedy scene. "What existed in its place was this strange mixture of theatrical conventions, and fringe clownery that was generally frowned upon by the literati of the time." While Oster hasn't been to Russian in three years, he notes that a movement is slowly developing there. I wondered if he could transport what he's learned in America about stand-up to the land of Vladimir Putin.

"It’s impossible to say. I have that doubt every time I go up here. Like, I never really know how the audience will react. I take risks with a lot of my bits… not to make myself sound like a brave artist or performer, because I don’t take real risks," he says, laughing. "But I do take risks aesthetically when I go up, and it would be even more of a risk to go up in Russia, because it’s a very traditional society, [although] not the most traditional society I can think of, but way more traditional than Seattle. And even though I’m not political in my material, it comes from a set of presuppositions that would not be perceived in a friendly way by many Russian speakers."

Reflecting on his background in the literature of obscure yet influential figures such as Nikolai Oleynikov and Daniil Kharms, Oster says that "after I started doing stand-up, I would think back and re-read some of the things I really liked of theirs, and I realized that a lot of what I liked about those writers were actually elements that are very much connected to stand-up. Nabokov was a sort of a comedian; if you look at his prose style, if you look at his observations, if you look at his innate sense of irony in the way that he depicts culture."

When asked if he's happy that he moved to the U.S., Oster says, "I don’t think there’s a single thing in my biography that I’m 100-percent happy about, but I definitely prefer being here to being in Russia right now, if that answers the question."

As noted above, Oster starts his stand-up sets with no pleasantries, whereas most comedians try to instantly develop a rapport with the crowd in order to gain some sort of advantage, like, “Okay, you’re going to like me as a person before I actually say anything funny.” Oster says, "That’s a decision I’ve consciously made. In my case, attempting to be liked by the audience would be a strategic miscalculation, and it’s not a self-deprecating thing. Some people are likable and have charisma, and some people have negative charisma, and some people are sort of neutral. If you take my accent into account, I’m neutral, like leaning toward negative, when it comes to charisma onstage, so if I thought I could successfully pander, I’m sure I would, but I don’t think it’s a route I can take, so I just try to get straight to the game."

Personally, I'd prefer not to hear comedians open their sets with "How you doin’, [insert city here]?” To me, it’s a sign of weakness. Oster disagrees. "If your personality—not just your worldview, but your actual personality, which are different things—is a part of your set, if it influences your material, then initiating your interaction with the audience by displaying that personality might be a useful thing, but I don’t think it is in my case. I try to have my worldview influence my material, but I don’t think my personality is very interesting, from an artistic standpoint, which is why I also don’t talk about myself very much; I prefer to do material that’s more abstract and… or absurd.

"Right now, I am focused a lot on abstraction and just language, but I do think it’s good to let your worldview influence your comedy. But there is a difference between having material influenced by your beliefs and your worldview, and having material that is about you, as a person, and about the specificities of your life. And while there is definitely nothing wrong with being personal, and talking about yourself in stand-up—and I often enjoy comedians who do that—I personally don’t find myself interesting enough to make myself the subject of my material."

Oster says that the most important catalyst for humor is mutual understanding. "All art is fundamentally about empathy, because any work of art is an attempt at communicating with your audience, and any interaction with a work of art, be that as a listener, or a reader, or an audience member at a stand-up performance, is you perceiving that communication, and this goes back to my background in language and linguistics. I have a very detailed blueprint of how I think language works and how communication works.

"All art is about empathy and learning to perceive another person’s perspective, and because comedy has to do with this very mechanical thing that happens when we find something funny, that nobody quite understands what it is. But there is definitely some mechanical thing that happens, and being able to find that mechanical thing is a beautifully reassuring form of mutual understanding that you can’t really find anywhere else.

"Pete Holmes had a bit where he says, 'I bet magicians wish that there was a noise people made when they’re amazed.' Looking for that understanding and tinkering with those expectations, and the joy of actually interfacing with another person’s expectations and world model is my favorite thing about doing stand-up; feeling understood—and that sounds pretty pretentious, doesn’t it?"

A glimpse into Osters comedic mind.

Oster cites Gary Gulman's latest special, The Great Depresh, which deals with his struggle with depression, as an example of the type of work he'd like to do someday. "Because he talks about things that are extremely relatable, but they’re hard for people to talk about. Because they require a lot of work to be able to express, and he does it in such a beautiful way that I had never quite seen before. [The Great Depresh] should be mandatory viewing for everyone; I’ve never encountered a work of art before that would have more direct potential to save human lives than that special. He is one of the absolute greats, a genius."

Given the fact that since Trump has come into office, Russia has moved to the forefront of Americans’ minds regarding its influence on our political landscape, perhaps Oster could capitalize on his ethnicity in his act. It seems like it might be a rich area for humor. But Oster doesn't believe that approach plays to his strengths.

"My life is definitely entangled with politics by virtue of being an immigrant from Russia. I have to consider politics in my daily life, to a certain degree. And I definitely have to consider Russia, inescapably. If I happen to write a joke about Russia (which has happened before; I have at least one bit that I still do, actively, about Russia), but if I happen to write more jokes about Russia, I would be happy to include them in my material, but I don’t like trying to write about Russia, because it’s very important to me to not come across as having that as a gimmick.

"Once I went to an open mic and I had a new joke that had to do with Russia and the drowning children joke that I actually do a lot of the time, and I did them in a row, and it was about three minutes, and then an audience member saw me outside and said, 'Hey, that Russia stuff was great,' and that didn’t feel good. I don’t want a whole set to ever sound like 'that Russia stuff,' because if I did use it as a gimmick, it would pigeonhole me into talking about that thing alone, and that thing alone, no matter how important it might be to my daily life, is not the most interesting thing in the world. Tyrannies are all about the same…tyrannical governments are not very interesting."

Oster isn't interested in mining the easy comedy vein of comparing Russian and American cultures. "This is one difficulty that I have in working with Seattle audiences: there is this tendency to respect people’s cultural backgrounds, and I don’t think we should respect our own cultural backgrounds. What we should respect is rational humanism as a philosophy, and most tradition is just outright bad. A tradition is something that’s almost definitionally irrational and misguided, because you don’t take a rational action and call it a tradition.

"We should be more empathetic and rational, regardless of our backgrounds, but respecting tradition... like, when people tell me that they want to respect my traditions, that’s sort of ethically appalling to me, because if they knew what, what my traditions are…"

One thing that distinguishes Oster's act is how precise and analytical his sentences are. They seem extremely honed. "A big part of it is my lack of perceived charisma, or self-confidence. If I have something to offer, it’s in that work, not in being onstage and just shining glory onto the people in the audience.

"And some comedians, like Robin Williams, they could do that. They could just go onstage and just be funny, and some, and I know people, even in my actual, real life who can do that, and I’m always impressed by it. It’s fantastic to see, but I’m definitely not like that.

"I can riff and I occasionally can do it in a way that the audience will enjoy it, but for the most part, if I do have something to offer the audience, it’s in the work that I do offstage... in the meticulous polishing and grinding of material that happens both off- and onstage, but that takes multiple performances. And I will write a joke and I will have a draft, I will take it to an open mic, and then I will start changing things around, hopefully. I’ll start seeing what works and what doesn’t, but I think this is the process for most comedians, unless someone is extremely good at riffing, and they can improvise their way, or just quickly, intuitively find something. But I don’t have that speed; it takes me usually a few weeks to land on a finalized draft for a joke, and it takes multiple open mics and multiple performances to polish it."

Oster praises Seattle's "fantastic" comedy milieu and says he could mention dozens of names in his personal pantheon. "I could talk about well-established veterans of the scene like Erin Ingle, Bo Johnson, or Claire Webber, but I should use this opportunity to mention some of the people who are relative beginners like myself.

"Paul Curry is hilarious and terrifyingly quick. Richard Bowen and Kyle Bob Mullens write absurd material in a way that I really appreciate. Andrew Frank (who is a very experienced comedian, but new to Seattle) has a way of befriending his audiences that can be downright magical. Chelsea Tolle and Jesse Warren are two of the most disgustingly hard-working comedians I've met and are creating opportunities not just for themselves, but everyone in the community. All of these people can be caught regularly at the open mics at Laughs Comedy Club, Comedy Underground, and Jai Thai on Broadway, which is a hot-bed of Seattle comedy in its own right."

In addition to his frequent stand-up appearances, Oster writes for a Russian reality-TV series and serves as head writer for the local comedy start-up Socially Inept, which roasts the area's tech sector foibles. He'll be performing five sets at Seattle International Comedy Competition; check out the schedule below.

Anxiously waiting for the 4 p.m. ballot drop over here at Stranger World Headquarters. I guess word is still out on whether or not Amazon's "stuff 'em with cash" move actually worked, but with "human stain" Tim Eyman's I-976 passing with a substantial margin (Amazon dumped $500K for the opposing campaign) and Stranger-endorsed Tammy Morales in District 2 and Dan Strauss in District 6 looking like they're going to be on the city council, I'm going with… not really? Kinda, sorta, maybe. Too early to say, I suppose. Here's hoping that today's ballot drop bodes well for Kshama Sawant in District 3 and Andrew Lewis in District 7. But, look, I'm just the sticker guy.

I've mostly quit smoking (save your applause), but watching the returns coming in last night made me want to start again. Two drinks deep and watching Referendum 88 slowly go down is enough to make you want to riffle around your backpack for lighter then slip outside to slowly, methodically suck down a Camel Crush. This one was spotted in SLU, I might add.

Comment on Toys from the ’88 JCPenney Xmas Catalog! by Freezair

I'm slightly too young to have firsthand memories of anything in this catalogue (and by "slightly too young, I mean "I was three months old on the Christmas of '88"), but I have GENERAL memories of things similar to the things here. An indoor playhouse/tent was one of my great white whales of childhood gift giving: I wanted an indoor tent, ANY indoor tent, almost a comical amount. Sure, my family let us use our actual tent to camp out in the backyard just about whenever I wanted, but it WASN'T THE SAME. I also had a Lion King sleeping bag that was one of my favorites for a long time. Some day, I will be that old lady who has an elaborately decorated yard full of vintage Christmas decorations.

Bottom-up analysis using liquid chromatography–Fourier transform mass spectrometry to characterize fucosylated chondroitin sulfates from sea cucumbers

 Cache   
Abstract
Fucosylated chondroitin sulfates (FCSs) from sea cucumbers have repetitive structures that exhibit minor structural differences based on the organism from which they are recovered. A detailed characterization of FCSs and their derivatives is important to establish their structure–activity relationship in the development of new anticoagulant drugs. In the current study, online hydrophilic interaction chromatography–Fourier transform mass spectrometry (FTMS) was applied to analyze the FCS oligosaccharides generated by selective degradation from four species of sea cucumbers, Isostichopus badionotus, Pearsonothuria graeffei, Holothuria mexicana and Acaudina molpadioides. These depolymerized FCS fragments were quantified and compared using the glycomics software package, GlycReSoft. The quantified fragments mainly had trisaccharide-repeating compositions and showed significant differences in fucosylation (including its sulfation) among different species of sea cucumbers. Detailed analysis of FTMS ion peaks and top-down nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy of native FCS polysaccharides verified the accuracy of this method. Thus, a new structural model for FCS chains from these different sea cucumbers was defined. This bottom-up approach provides rich detailed structural analysis and provides quantitative information with high accuracy and reproducibility and should be suitable for the quality control in FCSs as well as their oligosaccharides.

Sex toy designers react to the wild sex toy in 'Watchmen'

I admit I don’t know much about Watchmen — the comic book series, the 2009 film, or the new HBO series. There is one detail, however, that somehow has penetrated my otherwise superhero-ignorant brain: Dr. Manhattan has a huge penis.

The latest episode of the HBO series, “She Was Killed By Space Junk,” pays homage to the much-discussed cock. The scene features Laurie Blake, known as Laurie Juspeczyk in the comics. To condense an entire character arc into a paragraph: She and her mother, Sally Jupiter, shared the superhero name/persona Silk Spectre. Laurie and Dr. Manhattan dated and broke up, and between the comics and the HBO show, she gave up being a superhero and joined the FBI.  Read more...

Liebe Kollegen und Sammler, viele von Euch haben es schon mitbekommen, aber für die, die mich noch nicht kennen: Mein Name ist Ralf Marczinczik und ich bereite eine Ausstellung vor, die im Herbst 2021 in Oberhausen gezeigt werden soll.

Justin Sargent Is Joining A MUSICAL ABOUT STAR WARS

 Cache   

Off-Broadway's hilariously irreverent new musical comedy; A Musical About Star Wars - or, Why Star Wars is the Greatest Thing in the History of the Galaxy, Much, Much Better than Star Trek, is excited to announce that Justin Sargent will be taking over the role of "Taylor" beginning Nov 15th.

A Musical About Star Wars is a show-within-a-show that celebrates not just the movies, but the fandom as well. A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away...a Staten Island Blockbuster Video to be exact...Two Star Wars fanatics, Scott and Taylor, write the most epic Star Wars musical ever. On their endless quest to perform it at Comic Con - a restraining order filed by Warwick Davis stands in their way - they have opted to perform it on the glamorous off-broadway stages instead! However, dark forces are looming over their production, and her name is Emily.

Justin Sargent's Broadway credits include Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark (Peter Parker/Spider Man), Rock of Ages (Drew), and Bonnie and Clyde, as well as appearing in Jesus Christ Super Star Live. But most importantly, and according to Justin himself, he is "A lifelong Star Wars fan who also worked at a Blockbuster in college...so basically this show is written about me. Somewhere, there is a tape of me singing John Williams themes (poorly) when I was around six years old, so I'm definitely ready to do the same in front of a live audience. May the fans be with me!"

Created by Tom D'Angora and written by D'Angora, Taylor Crousore, and Scott Richard Foster, the musical features an original score and lyrics by Billy Recce. The cast includes original stars Scott Richard Foster as "Scott" and Emily McNamara as "Emily", with Dylan Hartwell and Amy Hillner Larsen serving as understudies. The production is directed by Tom and Michael D'Angora, with choreography by Alex Ringler, costumes by Brendan McCann and William Bailey, lighting design by Lois Catanzaro, music direction by Ed Goldscheider, and stage managed by Brent Jones.

A Musical About Star Wars original cast album will be released by Broadway Records on Nov 8th.

A Musical About Star Wars plays at St. Luke's Theatre located at 308 W 46th St. The show plays Mon, Fri, Sat, at 8:15 and Sundays at 7:30 pm. Tickets can be purchased at St. Luke's box office, by calling 212-239-6200, or by visiting Telecharge.com.

MANDY PICKS A HUSBAND Will Come to United Solo

Direct from the 2019 Hollywood Fringe Festival in June and the 2019 Edinburgh Festival Fringe in August, Amanda Broomell's raw and witty tale, Mandy Picks a Husband, comes to the United Solo Theatre Festival for one performance on Thursday, November 21, 2019 at 7:30 PM (60 min).

Nearing 40 and living alone with her 13-year-old cat, Amanda-seasoned New York theatre actress and LA-based performer and standup comic-launched an Instagram experiment @mandypicksahusband in the style of ABC's cult-hit reality dating show The Bachelorette, featuring tell-all videos about her adventures in online dating.

Inspired by the overwhelming response from her followers, Amanda began a year-long writing process to channel her experiences into a solo story, humorously exposing the challenges one faces in cultivating intimacy and trust with a partner while facing the obstacle of healing from past trauma. How many psychics, life coaches and Bumble dates will it take to find THE ONE?

Amanda trained at New York University's acclaimed Tisch School of the Arts and at Columbia University's Classical MFA Acting Program. She recently won a StageSceneLA Award for "Star-Making Performance" for her role as Cherie in William Inge's Bus Stop.

‘The Boys’: Karl Urban Announces S2 Has Wrapped; Here’s When It Will Premiere

‘The Boys’ was an immediate hit when it arrived on Amazon Prime Video last summer, and it sounds as though fans can expect the second season to arrive around the same time next year.  Karl Urban heads up the cast as Billy Butcher, a man with a very personal grudge against the community of “Supes” that lord over the normal human population.  The actor took to Instagram to share the news that Season 2 has wrapped and that fans can expect it “Mid 2020.”  The first season dropped on July 27the of this year, right after San Diego Comic-Con, so it looks like that’s when fans can expect the second dose.     View this post on Instagram   Cut and print !🤪 That’s a wrap for Billy Butcher on season 2 of @theboystv .

‘Helstrom’ Adds Ex-X-Man Daniel Cudmore In A Recurring Role

 Cache   

Are we getting our first crossover between the ‘X-Men’ movie universe and the Marvel Cinematic Universe?  Well, no, but close.  Daniel Cudmore has been cast in a recurring role on Hulu’s live-action series ‘Helstrom’, based on the Marvel comic book characters Daimon and Ana (Satana) Helstrom, who might be the children of Satan. On the show, their father is a notorious serial killer.  It’s unknown if that is a misdirect or if the show is deviating from the comics.  Cudmore’s character, Keith Spivey, is “a nurse at St. Teresa’s where  Daimon and Ana’s mother, Victoria, has been institutionalized for the last 20 years.”  (per Deadline)   RELATED: Character Breakdowns From Marvel And Hulu’s ‘Helstrom’ Emerge   Of course, Cudmore may be best known among comic book adaptation fans for playing Colossus in the ‘X-Men’ films.  He debuted in ‘X2: X-Men United’, and went on to appear in ‘X-Men: The Last Stand’ (a.k.a. ‘X-Men 3’), and in ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’, in which he was part of the mutant resistance that had gone into hiding to avoid the Sentinels.  He is also listed as having made an uncredited appearance in this year’s ‘Dark Phoenix’, but I don’t recall seeing him.

Great art, with satisfyingly original character designs. The plot, on the other hand, is kind of a mess.

A detour from the main story, to collect the special issues. Most of them are set in different historical eras, and they're uniformly great. My favorite was the 1831 issue, with obviously Byron and obviously Shelley and, most importantly, obviously Mary Shelley and obviously Claire Clairmont, Mary's step-sister. Perfect choices for the pantheon, and a great use of Frankenstein. The Christmas issue is not at all Christmas but still great fun. It's basically a collection of relatively unimportant but illuminating moments in the modern pantheon, with puns. And then there's the "comedy" special, which isn't very comedic. It's the one low spot in the book.

review:
It's meant to be an homage to the original version of the Defenders. Instead, it's four individual stories that are very loosely connected, possibly in retrospect, and one combined story that's meant to be a really big deal but instead just feels kind of generic. The Hulk story is good, which is not surprising considering that it's connected to the really great Immortal Hulk series. The Doctor Strange story is also pretty good, and has a few pages of fantastic, Ditko inspired psychedelic stuff. The Namor and Silver Surfer stories are passable, I guess. Not really something I'd recommend to most people, unless you want to get every bit of Immortal Hulk possible.

review:
Marvels is brilliant. This is a decent book, but it simply doesn't live up to its predecessor. I'm not sure I can put my finger on why, exactly, that is. Maybe it's because the subject matter just isn't as awe-inspiring. Instead of the birth of the cornerstones of the Marvel universe, this is the nitty gritty, what makes it run decade in and decade out: the distrust of normal people. And while that was a major plot point in the original, there were other things going on there. This is basically all about that. Which makes it pretty repetitive. Superhero does something great, has one second of praise, is almost immediately framed or smeared, is cleared, lather, rinse, repeat. And while that is, the ebb and flow of the Marvel universe, especially anything related to mutants, seeing it reduced like this is just depressing. But if you've been wondering about the fate of Maggie, and I think we almost all have, it's a relief to get to finally know the rest of her story.

review:
I think this is the best this team has ever been, in this iteration. I feel like they finally have their own identity, as something other than Marvel's Teen Titans are a second try at Young Avengers. Now the cast is bigger, has a different focus, and the main characters are more mature. Which lets this take on the Mephisto plot really shine. Yes, Miles makes a deal with the devil, but it's a very different one than Peter Parker made, and this one is going to hurt a lot more for a lot longer. It's actually diabolical, which is rare enough. There's also one issue with the resurrected Cyclops, and I wasn't expecting that to be as cathartic as it was. I've been enjoying Champions all along, but I'm happy to see it finally at the top of its game.

review:
One of the highlights of this volume is a one-off story that focuses on a school shooting. There's no heroics, it just focuses on the simple human reactions to an event like this. Also really good was the annual, which focuses on Snowguard. It's essentially a celebration of her culture, wrapped in a really good story. The rest of the volume is fun, of course, and the best thing about this book as a whole remains how the characters interact with each other.

Moneyman- Punto per punto

 Cache   
In questa puntata di "Moneyman" si parlerà di moneta bancaria e conto corrente. "Moneyman” è una produzione di Rai Educational in convenzione con il Ministero dell’Istruzione dell’Università e della Ricerca, realizzata con la collaborazione tecnica della Banca d’Italia, nell’ambito di un progetto di educazione finanziaria rivolto ai ragazzi della scuola media inferiore e media superiore; al fine di divulgare le nozioni di base sulla moneta e gli altri strumenti di pagamento, diffondere l’educazione finanziaria, proponendola in un contesto d’uso concreto e quotidiano.   Ogni appuntamento di “Moneyman” si compone di due parti. La prima di genere comedy,  con attori e un cartoon, introduce il tema; la seconda parte propone un approfondimento dove vengono spiegati in modo chiaro e completo i contenuti specifici, con l’aiuto delle immagini e della grafica.   Protagonista della serie è Luigi, un timido e insicuro impiegato di banca, che dentro di sé sogna di avere una seconda identità, quella di paladino della legalità, di coraggioso difensore del denaro e del risparmio. Nella sua immaginazione, Luigi si trasforma in Moneyman, un eroe scaltro, agile, determinato. Le sue avventure immaginarie sono costellate di imprevisti e situazioni paradossali anche un po’ comiche, rappresentate sotto forma di cartone animato.

The BUFFY Rewatch Project: 2.17 + 2.18 Death Comes Calling And Drawing (Twice)

Follow the whole rewatch here!

Last week, we mostly took a break from the whole Angelus thing, but the theme of cursed love continued with Oz becoming a Werewolf, then Xander messing with a love spell that OBVIOUSLY went terribly awry. 

But now Angelus is back front and center, and shizz is about to get really, really serious. Like, you're-gonna-need-this-drinking-game-to-help-you-handle it-serious.

The Buffy Season Two Drinking Game Rules

Drink once every time:

A vamp is dusted
A scene takes place in a cemetery
Cordelia says something cutting but true
Buffy and Angel share a romantic moment
Principal Snyder hates on students
Oz is ridiculously low-key cool
Drusilla says something nutty
Spike has mad swagger

Drink twice every time:

We see the entrance to Sunnydale High
We see a scene from the credits
Giles cleans his glasses
Jonathan appears in a scene
There’s an extremely outdated pop culture reference
A vampire is invited into a house

Get ready to pour one out for [spoiler redacted]!

2.17 "Passion"

Just when you thought Angelus was fun in, like, an evil way, he goes full on Psycho Edward--gazing at an unsuspecting Buffy from a dark corner of the Bronze, then watching her through her window as she goes to bed, THEN sitting on the bed and stroking her face, all while he gives us a voiceover essay about "passion." YEESH. And for that special touch, he leaves a drawing of a sleeping Buffy for her to find in the AM. GOOD MORNING.

While it's clear that Angel, as Xander puts it, is taking the "nah nah nah naaah-nah" approach to battle, Buffy can't help but be concerned about the safety of her loved ones, particularly Joyce. Giles tells her to chill and not let Angel goad her into doing something impulsive: "As the slayer, you don't have the luxury of being a slave to your passions." Remember that, class, because Giles will soon forget his own advice. 

Ms. Calendar is still in forgiveness mode, asking Willow to cover her computer class (Willow is STOKED) and then offering Giles a book with a spell that might keep Angel out of Buffy's house (apparently, that whole vampire invite thing is permanent). Giles is still frosty towards her, but totally melts after she confesses that she's fallen in love with him. However, he reminds her, it's Buffy that she needs to make it up to. The Slayer actually makes it easy in the sweetest way: she tells Jenny that Giles misses her, and Buffy doesn't want him to be lonely. That's very generous of you, Buff! (And you're about to be reeeeal glad you made amends.)

In an effort to protect Joyce from Angel, Buffy admits to her mom that she and Angel were dating but have now broken up. "Don't tell me, he's changed," Joyce replies. "He's not the same guy you fell for." Um, NAILED IT. Buffy paints Angel as a heartbroken stalker and warns her mom not to let him in the house.

But turns out, he's not at the Summers residence--he hit up Willow's house instead, and killed all of her fish! Cool cool cool. "For the first time," Willow tells Buffy, "I'm glad my parents didn't let me have a puppy." Circling back to the theme of the episode, Willow shares a revelation with Buffy that makes everything feel even more effed up: "You're still the only thing he thinks about." So true, and also GAH.

In an A+ effort to make amends, Jenny pays a visit to the magic shop (making its first appearance!) and buys an Orb of Thesulah, a key part of her spell to bring Angel's soul back. Unfortunately, Dru has a vision of Ms. Calendar's little shopping spree and later shows up at the store to buy a gift card get the scoop from the owner on what exactly Jenny purchased. 

Giles, meanwhile, finally figures out the way to pull the welcome mat out from under Angel, which involves nailing crosses above the doors and windows (which is gonna be tough for Willow to explain to her Jewish father). And it's just in the nick of time, because Angel shows up on Buffy's front lawn as Joyce pulls up then proceeds to tell her that they had sex. SUCH A DICK MOVE, ANGELUS. That's like almost (almost) as bad as just killing Joyce right then and there. The silver lining is that Angel, attempting to follow Joyce into the house, discovers that his invite has been REVOKED.

Too bad the school is still open to everyone, fang or no, because that's where Angel finds Ms. Calendar, who has just decoded the spell to return his soul (which she saves on a disk, because you should ALWAYS back up your data, y'all). Angel destroys the orb, trashes the computer and then chases Jenny through the building (for a little too long, IMO) before catching her and... breaking her neck. It's dramatic precisely because it happens so quickly and easily, and yet the weight of her death is absolutely crushing. 

Things go from awful to awkward as Joyce forces Buffy to talk about her sexual activity (CRINGEFEST 1998). But their convo ultimately lands Joyce the Mom of the Year award when she says, "Buffy, you can shut me out of your life, I'm pretty much used to that. But don't expect me to ever stop caring about you, because it's never gonna happen. I love you more than anything in the world." Awww, yay! We really needed that, Joyce. 

Giles arrives home and finds a red rose in the door, opera playing in the background and wine on ice. Gotta admit, Angel really does have a nice touch for this sort of thing. Thinking that he's about to get romantic with his lady, Giles looks so happy and it is SO HARD TO WATCH as he bops up the stairs and discovers Jenny... lying dead on his bed. GAH NEXT TIME I AM FAST FORWARDING THIS PART. The kicker is that Angel is now lurking outside of the Summers' residence so he can watch Buffy and Willow get the call from Giles and react to the news. It's truly gutwrenching, and I hate Angelus SO MUCH right now. 

Fueled by anger and loss, Giles shows up at the vamp's crib and throws a fire bomb at Angel, Spike and Dru, then starts to beat the shizz out of Angel, which is AWESOME. We're talking some Ripper action here. Angel gets the upper hand, unfortunately, but Buffy shows up and saves Giles while Angel escapes, and Giles is anything from grateful. 




Giles, shoving Buffy down: "Why did you come here? This wasn't your fight."
Buffy, punching him: "Are you trying to get yourself killed?"
Buffy, falling to her knees and hugging him: "You can't leave me. I can't do this alone."

Out of the many painful moments in this episode, this one breaks my heart the most.

The next day, Willow ends up having to teach Ms. Calendar's class for a very different reason, which gives me the feels, while Buffy realizes that she is ready to kill Angel. GAME ON, ANGELUS.

How many times do I have to take a drink?

This Episode Brought To You By Garlic

From a particularly pungent slumber party to the motherload in Cordelia's car, garlic was pretty much the star of this episode.

Miss Sunshine, We Hardly Knew Ye

Drusilla's Happy-Meal-for-Spike-turned-sidekick was ADORABLE, and while her demise was most likely the opposite, at least we didn't have to see it. 

2.18 "Killed by Death"

Although she's sick with the flu, Buffy insists on patrolling, much to the dismay of the Scooby Gang, who thankfully find her in the cemetery (drink!) right before Angel does. They fight him off, but Buffy collapses and has to be rushed to the hospital, which, fun fact, is her most hated place! See, when she was eight, Buffy's cousin Celia died in a hospital, and Buffy was the only one in the room. Yep, that'll do it! While everyone is gathered outside of her room, Joyce takes the opportunity to tell Giles that she's sorry about Jenny, and it's both a sweet moment and a reminder that grief doesn't end with the credits. 

That night, Buffy wakes up and sees a little boy in the hallway, followed by a REALLY fugly dude in a black bowler hat. She follows them and suddenly flashes back to her eight-year-old self, creeping towards Celia's bed. The whole thing seems to be a dream, as Buffy wakes up back in bed, but then she overhears two doctors arguing over the death of a child patient and some kind of experimental treatment. A little boy (Ryan) walks up to Buffy and tells her, "He comes at night, and he'll be back for us." "Who?" Buffy asks. "Death." Cool cool cool tight tight tight. 

Because he can't help himself, Angel shows up to visit Buffy and faces off with Xander, leading to this aggro exchange:

Angel: "You still love her. It must just eat you up that I got there first."
Xander: "You're gonna die, and I'm gonna be there." 

Mmmkay, dudes. Let's calm down with the machismo. 

In her room, Buffy shares the events of the previous night with the Scoobs, but everyone assumes that she's just suffering from the effects of the drugs--and Cordelia, bless her, says it outright. ("Tact is not just saying true stuff. I'll pass." DRINK!) Giving Buffy the benefit of the doubt, as they should, Giles and Willow do some digging and find out that the male doctor, Dr. Backer, has faced a ton of lawsuits, but later snooping by Cordelia and Xander proves that Backer is actually helping the kids.

So if it's not an evil doctor, who's the dude with the skin and dental hygiene issues? It's Kindestod, which is German for "child death." Charming! This grotsky beastie feeds off of children, and Buffy realizes with horror that, as she watched Celia die, her cousin was fighting off an invisible Kindestod. And the only reason she could see him that night was because she had a fever, so naturally, she takes a few drops of the virus (now THAT is the most nightmarish part of this whole episode) and heads/stumbles towards the Children's Wing, though the kids have already fled through... a basement access door? In their room? Interesting architectural choice, hospital! 

Herr Kindestod, having cornered the children, attacks Ryan by pinning him down--then his eyeballs come out and open up into claw-type suction cups that attach directly to Ryan's forehead. I could insert a photo here to show you what I'm talking about but NOPE. Buffy arrives and fights Kindestod off while Xander helps the kids escape, but the sickly Slayer seems like she might be outmatched as the eyeball claws (STILL NOPE) get *this close* to her head. Thankfully Buffy is able to break his neck in the nick of time. What's the German word for "BYEEEE"?

The episode closes with Joyce mothering/spoiling not just Buffy but Willow and Xander too. (I'm sure I found this cute in my 20s but now I'm just like, Joyce, why are you putting up with these lazy brats?)

Apparently, Giles doesn't have high standards for artistic talent in his Slayer.

Cordelia + Xander

Once again, Cordelia and Xander get in a fight over his feelings for Buffy, but this time, Cordelia (who is on FIRE this entire episode) decides to take the high road and brings Xander donuts and coffee while he's on Angel Watch in the hospital. It's a small gesture but a big moment for this couple!

Cameo

While snooping for medical files, Cordelia is discovered by a security guard, played by Willie Garson, aka Stanford Blatch from SATC! He is lower on the fun and higher on the creepy in this role, especially while Cordelia flirts her way out of his clutches.  

Nice Callback

While being chased by hospital security, Willow gives Buffy a window of escape and distracts the guards by pretending she's covered in frogs, which we know is her greatest nightmare. Well played, Will. 

Kids Draw the Darnedest Things

At the end of the episode, Buffy receives a letter from Ryan, which includes a drawing! "How nice," Joyce says before she fully registers the gory glory of this crayon masterpiece. I really hope Buffy got this framed, even though Ryan gave her man shoulders. 

--

So, are y'all grieving the loss of Ms. Calendar or did the whole "I'm actually a part of the clan that cursed Angelus" thing kinda ruin her character for you? I remember watching this ep for the first time when it aired and feeling certain she was about to die--but her death still impacted me. And do you think, by this point, it makes sense that Buffy would be ready to kill Angel?

Join me for some convo (and ews over Child Death Dude) in the comments, then tune in next week when Kandis recaps "I Only Have Eyes For You" (one of my favorite Buffy episodes of all time) and "Go Fish" (one of... not my favorite Buffy episodes of all time). 


          

Pay attention to book layout: Eight rules for the independent publisher

 Cache   

By Ted Witt

You have finished your manuscript; now it is time to design.

Too many writers neglect book layout in their rush to get into print. Be professional. If you have not hired a graphic artist to lay out your book, you may violate one of these eight rules. Even if you hire a designer, an inexperienced artist may also make these publishing mistakes, and you will stand out as an amateur. Pay attention to these basics.

Chapter Starts

Chapters always start on right-side (recto) pages, and the corresponding page number must be odd, not even. The only excuse for a left-page (verso) start is when you have created a consistent two-page layout to introduce new chapters. Even in this instance, the exception applies to non-fiction books with magazine style designs where art and headers are on the left, but actual text usually starts on the right. Mass-market publishers who are cheap and disregard design (read St. Martin’s Press) start chapters on left-side pages.  Don’t emulate pulp fiction.

Page Number

Page numbers start with the Arabic numeral 1, concurrent with the first chapter on a right-side page. Front matter does not count toward the page count, and if front-matter pages are numbered, they employ Roman numerals, not Arabic. Turn to the end of your book; if a right-side page is not an odd number, you have a problem. Blank pages will count in sequence as part of the page count, but do not place an actual number on the blank page.

Blank Right Pages

There are no excuses for blank right pages. Blank left-side pages are acceptable. If a chapter ends on a left-side page, start the next chapter on the next right page. Never say, “This page intentionally left blank.”

Running Headers

Running headers typically include the name of the book or chapter ID running along the top of each page. The combination of text for running headers depends upon the structure of the book, but text on left-side pages is different from right-side pages. Examples of some possible combinations include:

Author Name                              Book Name

Chapter Number                       Chapter Title

Book Title                                      Chapter Title

When including running headers, the type should set to the outside of the page or at the center of the text block. Do not align running headers alongside the book gutter. You want to make it easy for people to read, not difficult. Aligning toward the gutter impedes readability, forcing readers to crack open the book to remind them where they are.

Page numbers should be set to the outside edge of any text, on both the left side and right side.

Do not use running heads on blank pages or on pages with chapter starts.

Type Justification

For most normal books, fiction or non-fiction, justified text is the standard. I once published a book with rag-right text because research said unjustified copy would be easier to read. However, the book lost its professional appeal. Learn from my mistake; stick with justified text. I would grant exceptions to gift books, children’s books, recipe books, and coffee table books.

Widows and Orphans

Typographers sometimes disagree on this topic, but the moral consensus is that it is our “ethical” responsibility to care for widows and orphans.

A widow is the last line in a paragraph that sits by itself at the top of a new page. Often it is short and fails to reach the margin. It looks odd sitting there, tiny and lonesome.  An orphan is the first line of a paragraph that ends a page. It is not as unfriendly as a widow, but calls attention to itself especially in non-fiction books where the author’s manuscript is often accompanied by lots of subheads, tables, bullet points, and enumerated lists.

A designer who wants a perfectly rectangular text block cannot fix orphans and widows without shortening some pages, so these dangling lines stay widows and orphans through the book.

The better approach is to fix them. Here is a simple guideline:  begin and end a page with at least two full lines of text.  If necessary, steal a line from a preceding page. Allow that page to be short by one line so that widows and orphans become married or adopted.

It is worth repeating: Always leave any extra space at the bottom of the page. Align recto and verso text blocks at the top of the page, not at the bottom. Always.

You are excused from the care of widows and orphans if you are dealing with a long page of staccato dialog. It may be impossible to avoid short lines.

Margins

Don’t be afraid of white space. Err toward more margin than less. Gutter margins must be wider to accommodate the binding and bend of the page; an inch is usually OK. Classic designs give larger margins to the bottom of the page than the top. At a minimum, your running head should be set on the half-inch line at the top of your page, with another line space of at least 1.5 lines separating it from the text block. Outside margins are usually wider than top margins; try three-quarters of an inch. When in doubt, buy a template.

Fonts

To serious book publishers, using Times Roman for your book would be like using Comic Sans to write a business letter. It is just not done. Save Times Roman for newspapers. Serif type is a must-do for readability. Here are six classic book fonts: Bembo, Caslon, Garamond, Janson, Granjon, and Sabon. Once again, we excuse gift books, children’s books and specialty books from the tradition. Chapter heads may be of a contrasting font, such as a san serif type.

Evil:ONE #2 Continúa la aventura de hacking y superhéroes en @0xWord #Comics #armatura @calicooficial

 Cache   
Como sabéis, desde hace un tiempo editamos y publicamos algunos cómics en 0xWord Cómics. Y dentro del Universo Armatura de Jerry Finger tenemos ya publicados el Tomo Recopilatorio del Universo Armatura, además de haber sacado el tercer número de La Elite hace poco. Pero también tenemos una miniserie de tres números llamada Evil:ONE en la que el protagonista, Ed, es un hacker que se topa con el mundo de los superhéroes en primera persona... en su propia ciudad de Móstoles.

Figura 1: Evil:ONE #2 Continúa la aventura de hacking y superhéroes en 0xWord

Pues bien, desde ayer por la tarde tienes disponible la segunda parte de esta miniserie publicada en 0xWord Cómics. Así que puedes comprar ya Evil:ONE #2 y continuar con la aventura que terminará en la siguiente parte.
Hacer cómics a esta escala es más un placer personal que otra cosa, así que la tirada que tiene este número es también pequeña, con 100 copias, así que si quieres una de ellas tendrás que darte prisa. Además, tienes la posibilidad de apoyar este proyecto comprándote alguna pegatina de Armatura, de Cálico, pósters, etcétera o la camiseta molona esa que utilizo yo de Evil:One y el gran Krespo en sus conciertos.


Además de estos cómics de superhéroes sabes que también hemos editado Hacker Épico Deluxe Edition, que es un cómic precioso que recoge toda la acción del "thriller" tecnológico que publicamos en el libro de "Hacker Épico".
Y nuestra última incursión en el mundo del cómic ha sido la publicación del tomo con todas las Tiras de Cálico Electrónico. Ayer nos fuimos a cenar Salva Espín, Arturo González Campos, Nikotxan y yo, y además de firmarle unos ejemplares a ellos nos dejó tres cómics firmados para los primeros que los compren hoy en 0xWord.


Y esto es todo. Gracias a todos los que habiendo crecido seguís manteniendo ese espíritu joven dentro que os permite seguir disfrutando de las viñetas de un cómic en las manos. Podéis contar conmigo entre vosotros.

Saludos Malignos!
