          Maurício de Sousa: “Não estou habituado ao fracasso”      Cache   Translate Page      


É um grande senhor da BD mundial, tem 83 anos, uma energia surpreendentee contagiante e uma obra que fala por si, reconhecida internacionalmente e que atravessa gerações.
A Comic Con Portugal, de que foi este ano o grande cabeça de cartaz, em cinco edições nunca tinha vista filas para autógrafos de um autor de BD como as que Maurício de Sousa originou nesta edição de 2018, nem nunca tinha visto um auditório a abarrotar como aquele que o acolheu com uma imensa salva de palmas quando entrou.

As Leituras do Pedro: O que sentiu quando entrou no auditório?
Maurício de Sousa: Carinho. Um carinho que surge devido às personagens que criei, que são como se fossem meus filhos. E que devido a essa carinho não estou sozinho. Não estar sozinho é a maior das maravilhas.

As Leituras do Pedro: Alguma vez sonhou chegar onde está hoje?
Maurício de Sousa:Sonhar, nunca sonhei, mas planeei tudo. Quando planeamos, não sabemos se vai dar certo, se vai resultar. No meu caso, muitos dos projectos avançaram e materializaram-se. Mas há alguns, poucos, que não deram certo.

As Leituras do Pedro: Esses ficaram esquecidos ou estão à espera de outra oportunidade?
Maurício de Sousa:Não estão esquecidos, ficaram a pesar-me no pensamento, foram fracassos. E eu não estou habituado ao fracasso. Foram projectos que não se enquadraram nas expectativas ou tiveram algum erro de cálculo quanto ao seu contexto.

As Leituras do Pedro: Quais foram os fracassos que lamenta mais.
Maurício de Sousa:Os Beatles infantis foium deles. Foram recusados por 3 votos a favor e 1 voto contra, deuma representante de um dos músicos. Nunca soube quem foi.
Mas o fracasso que me custou mais foi o Dieguito, a versão desenhada de Maradona. Desenvolvi uma série de personagens para o acompanharem e enquadrarem, concebi uma campanha para o lançamento a nível mundial do Dieguito, mas não pude avançar devido ao comportamento que Maradona tinha na época, que o impedia de ser um exemplo para os pequenos leitores a quem o Dieguito se destinava. Era para ter sido o meu novo Pelezinho.

As Leituras do Pedro: O que é a Turma da Mônica hoje?
Maurício de Sousa:Uma marca. Não no sentido comercial, mas como uma bandeira colocada num território que se conquistou. É uma marca que irradia arte, mensagens, exemplos de comportamento, entretenimento e cultura.

As Leituras do Pedro: O que vem a seguir?
Maurício de Sousa:Está em gestação uma terceira via da Turma da Mônica, a Turma da Mônica Adulta, para finalmente termos uma turma de e para cada faixa etária.
A partir de 2019 serão lançados diversos filmes, com as diversas turmas, em animação ou não, para a Internet. A produção já começou e terão circulação a nível mundial, sem fronteiras de público.
A par disso há uma grande aposta no lançamento de revistas e produtos derivados no México e no Japão. Neste último caso a aposta é grande por isso criei a Maurício de Sousa Produções Japan.

As Leituras do Pedro: O que é que ainda lhe falta fazer?
Maurício de Sousa:Só vou saber amanhã (risos). Às vezes, de uma conversa, um passeio, uma palestra, surge uma nova ideia.

          Comment on Breaking Down The Biggest Moments of ‘Iron Fist’ Season 2 by Idrian Burgos      Cache   Translate Page      
- While the fight scenes looked good, I would've preferred that they kept that "kung-fu flow," just to differentiate it from Daredevil. S1 tried to attempt that at least IMO. - We were only given the Typhoid Mary as this show required; this isn't her show after all. The most preferable outcome would be her becoming a recurring character throughout the Netflix shows, preferably encountering Jessica (who's a mirror image of her) and Punisher (especially with her MCU background). - About the "magical" element, I felt that they were sublimated under the "mundane" element of this show, rather than being an independent force in its own right and held in tension with the "mundane" like in S1. Fortunately, S3 seems to be going back to that "magical-mundane" tension, now divided between the Iron Sword and the Iron Pistol. - Oh and yes, the finale was the highlight of this season for me. Orson Randall, the Iron Sword/Blade and the Iron Pistol. Hopefully S3 will explain how come Danny has the Heart of the Dragon also. My thinking is that he got that from another dragon, and that S3 may also show us how Colleen learned to channel the Fist into the katana. Oh, and look kids: an Iron Fist abandoning his/her duty isn't new! - One highlight that's not featured here: the character interactions. It's always a good time whenever Ward and Danny, Misty and Colleen share dialogue. One could include Joy and Davos here as well. EDIT: It was also fun and refreshing to hear those comics/MCU references (616, Sokovia). We may see the "third persona" appear on the other shows.
          Comment on REVIEW: ‘Iron Fist’ Season 2 Episode 2 – The City’s Not for Burning by Idrian Burgos      Cache   Translate Page      
You really, really don't get what I'm saying. While the Marvel Cinematic Universe takes inspiration from the various Marvel comics universes, 616 and the Ultimate universe being the main sources, all of the universes, live-action or otherwise, are also based on our world. "The world outside your window," as a Marvel slogan says. Based on that argument, let's take the surname "Murdock" for example. There are many people in our real world with that last name, yet if someone is writing a story featuring a "Murdock," he/she will only feature those "Murdocks" as the story requires, unless the story is about all the "Murdocks" of all the world. The same also applies for the Nelsons, the Erskines, the Rogerses, the Starks (ok this may be more of an exception) and the Carters. Only because the others aren't mentioned doesn't mean they exist, all the more so when the fictional universe they live in is also inspired by our all-too-real world. Yes, there are/could be many Erskines running around the MCU, it's just that not all of them have to feature in a MCU story. I can produce a MCU TV show that features a supporting character named "Karla Erskine" who's actually adopted and who is an original character, but she would still exist. And your tone of "objectivity," as if you're 100% correct on all this, is "really" helping your argument.

          Henry Cavill Out as Superman, WB Shifts Focus to SUPERGIRL Movie      Cache   Translate Page      

Henry Cavill is up, up...and away.

The Hollywood Reporter has word that Warner Bros. is parting ways with Henry Cavill, who portrayed DC Comics' legendary character Superman in Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Justice League.

According to the article, Warner Bros. had been trying to get Cavill to do a Superman cameo in the upcoming DC Extended Universe movie Shazam!, but contract talks between Cavill's representatives and Warner Bros. broke down, affecting other potential Superman appearances.

One of THR's sources at Warner Bros. said the Shazam! deal fell apart because of scheduling conflicts, supported by previous reports that Cavill recently signed on to star in the Netflix series The Witcher.  However, another THR source stated that the Witcher commitment came after the impasse, suggesting a change in Warner Bros.' strategy.  "There's a recognition that some parts of the previous movies didn't work," said their studio insider.  Another source said Warner Bros. is attempting a "reset button with the DC universe", moving the cinematic universe in another direction. 

A statement from a Warner Bros. spokesperson remarked, "While no decisions have been made regarding any upcoming Superman films, we’ve always had great respect for and a great relationship with Henry Cavill, and that remains unchanged."

Cavill, 35, was cast as Superman in January 2011 for Man of Steel and recently appeared in the hit film Mission: Impossible--Fallout.  He's also appeared in the films The Man from U.N.C.L.E., Stardust, Immortals, The Cold Light of Day, Tristan & Isolde, Hellraiser: Hellworld, and The Count of Monte Cristo (2002).  He also played Charles Brandon on the Showtime series The Tudors.

In addition, the article claims the studio has shifted its focus to developing the Supergirl movie, which will be an origin story.  They also state that Warner Bros. isn't likely to make a solo Superman film for at least several years, according their source.  "Superman is like James Bond," said the source, "and after a certain run you have to look at new actors."


          SWAMP THING Reportedly Casts Derek Mears as...Swamp Thing      Cache   Translate Page      

Do not bring your evil here.

Splash Report has revealed that the upcoming DC Universe series Swamp Thing, based on the DC Comics elemental creature, is considering Derek Mears for the title role.  It remains unclear, however, who will be playing Dr. Alec Holland, the scientist whose consciousness and memories form the basis for Swamp Thing.

Swamp Thing follows Abby Arcane (Crystal Reed) as she investigates what seems to be a deadly swamp-born virus in a small town in Louisiana but soon discovers that the swamp holds mystical and terrifying secrets.  When unexplainable and chilling horrors emerge from the murky marsh, no one is safe.

The live-action DC Universe adaptation will be executive produced by Len Wiseman (Sleepy Hollow) who will also direct the pilot. Mark Verheiden (Battlestar Galactica, Netflix’s Daredevil) and Gary Dauberman (It) are attached to co-write the series and act as showrunners, with James Wan (Aquaman) set to executive produce the series alongside Verheiden, Dauberman, and Michael Clear.  The series is set to start filming this fall in Wilmington, North Carolina.

Mears, 46, is best known as Jason Vorhees in the 2009 reboot of Friday the 13th, the supervillain Dwarfstar on The CW's The Flash, and as Renzo in the 2017 revival of Twin Peaks.  He's also appeared in the movies Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014), Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters, and Predators.  His other television appearances include episodes of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Comedy Bang! Bang!, Community, E.R., and The Shield.

Created in 1971 by Len Wein and Bernie Wrightson, Swamp Thing first appeared in House of Secrets #92 as Alex Olsen, a talented young scientist in early 1900's Louisiana, who was married to a woman named Linda.  Alex's assistant, Damian Ridge, was secretly in love with Linda and plotted the death of his friend.  He tampered with Olsen's chemicals, killing him in the explosion and dumped his body in the nearby swamp. Ridge used Linda's grief to convince her to marry him, only to one day become confronted with Alex Olsen again, now a risen humanoid pile of vegetable matter.  Olsen killed Ridge, but Linda did not recognize him and ran away leaving Olsen to wander the swamps alone as a monster.

The character was reinvented by Wein and Wrightson a year in Swamp Thing (vol.1) #1 as Dr. Alec Holland, a scientist who worked in a secret facility located in the Louisiana swamplands with his wife, Linda.  Together, they invented a bio-restorative formula that could solve any nations' food shortage problems.  Two thugs working for Nathan Ellery, head of the criminal organization The Conclave, barged into Alec's lab, knocked him out, and planted a bomb in the facility.  Alec woke up as the bomb exploded, and in flames, he ran into the swamp.  His body was drenched in the bio-restorative formula, and this affected the plant life of the swamp, imbuing it with Alec's consciousness and memories.  The newly conscious plant life formed a semblance of a human and rose up from the bog as the Swamp Thing, the latest in a long line of Earth elementals created when The Green is in need of protection.

The Swamp Thing originally thought that he was Alec Holland, transformed by the freak accident into a monster.  He sought to regain his human body, but often met opposition in the form of Anton Arcane and his ever-growing legion of "Un-Men".  After finally defeating Arcane, Swamp Thing was set upon by General Sunderland's men in a covert military operation.  The resulting attack blastws a hole in Swamp Thing's head and destroyed the lives of many of his friends.  Sunderland brought the Swamp Thing's body back to Sunderland Corporation to study and unlock the secret of the Bio-Restorative Formula.

Sunderland hired Jason Woodrue, the Floronic Man, to study Swamp Thing's body, which he stored in a cryochest.  Over the course of his research, Floronic Man deduced that Swamp Thing is a plant that thinks it's Alec Holland, while the real Alec Holland died in the explosion.  Sunderland and Floronic Man parted on bad terms, so the scientist used Sunderland's automated computer systems to raise the thermostat in Swamp Thing's cryochest.  This allowed Swamp Thing's body to regenerate, and in his search for Sunderland, he stumbled across the Floronic Man's report, which sent him into a mindless rage.  He killed Sunderland and set off for the swamps.

Later on, Swamp Thing formed a close friendship with Anton Arcane's niece, Abby Cable. Her husband Matthew grew resentful of her disinterest in sex and turned to alcohol, further pushing her toward the Swamp Thing.  She asks for his help when her autistic students at Elysium Lawns are tormented by Kamara, the Monkey-King, and on the same night the demon attacked, Matthew left to help Abby.  However, his alcoholism caused him to crash his car, mortally wounding him.  To stay alive, he made a pact with the spirit of Anton Arcane, who possessed his body.  After weeks, Abby realized that the man she thought was her husband was actually her uncle Anton.  Her feeling of disgust sent her into a horrible shock.  Swamp Thing confronted the possessed Matthew, and with the guidance of the monster, discovered Abby's body.  

Enraged that Arcane sent the "soul" of his niece to Hell, Swamp Thing beat Arcane to a pulp, allowing Matthew's trapped spirit to cast the soul of the sorcerer out of his body and back to the netherworld.  This returned Matthew's control of his body, but left him comatose.  To set things right, Swamp Thing traveled into The Green, the Spirit World, and Hell, all to reclaim Abby's soul.  He was forced to fight off a legion of the damned, including Anton Arcane, but he prevailed again with the help of Etrigan the Demon.  After Abby returned to life, Swamp Thing and Abby confessed their love for each other.  To celebrate the beginning of their relationship, Swamp Thing grew hallucinogenic tubers for Abby to eat, enabling her to see the world as he does.

Mears will be the second actor to portray Swamp Thing in live action, after Dick Durock in the films Swamp Thing and The Return of Swamp Thing, and the 1990 Swamp Thing TV series.  The character has also appeared in various animated projects, including the Swamp Thing animated series (voiced by Len Carlson), Justice League Dark (voiced by Roger R. Cross), Batman and Harley Quinn (voiced by John DiMaggio), and Justice League Action (voiced by Mark Hamill).

Swamp Thing is expected to debut on DC Universe sometime in 2019.

Life Goes On is a comically-morbid platformer where you guide heroic knights to their demise and use the dead bodies to solve puzzles. Wanting to live forever, a mighty king sends his army of knights to find the Cup of Life. On this quest, you will summon knight after knight to be brutally sacrificed. Impale knights on spikes to create a safe path. Catch a knight on a sawblade to land the body on a button. Freeze knights into blocks of ice to reach higher ground.

You’ll also electrocute knights to open doors, blast knights out of cannons, and even zombify a knight to be your violent, dim-witted friend. As you journey through treacherous and trap-ridden worlds, you’ll show no mercy to solve each challenging puzzle.

In this game, death is not a setback. It is your only means to progress.

Life Goes On: Done to Death will be available on the Switch eShop in Japan on Sept. 20th, 2018 for 1,499 Yen.

          Maximum Games Partners with Rooster Teeth Games to Bring First-Person Puzzle Horror Game Bendy and the Ink Machine to Switch      Cache   Translate Page      

September 12, 2018 – Walnut Creek, CA – Global video game publisher Maximum Games today announced their partnership with Rooster Teeth Games in the publishing of Bendy and the Ink Machine, the first-person puzzle horror game coming to console this fall. Following its astounding success on Steam, Maximum Games will bring the critically acclaimed title to PlayStationÒ4 and Xbox One next month, with a Nintendo Switch release following shortly thereafter.

In its 1930s heyday, Henry was the lead animator at Joey Drew Studios, a studio that was best known for producing animated cartoons of their most popular and beloved character, Bendy. Many years later, Henry receives a mysterious invitation from Joey Drew himself to return to the old cartoon workshop. Thus begins the player’s journey into the sketchy madness of this twisted cartoon nightmare.

Originally released episodically in four separate chapters, Bendy and the Ink Machine will arrive on console as a complete collection, and will include the brand-new fifth and final chapter, “The Last Reel.” Players will explore deep within a surreal comic environment full of unexpected horrors as they work to discover the mystery behind the fates of the studio employees.

“Those who haven’t played Bendy and the Ink Machine are going to discover an instantaneous love for the game that the Steam community has known for over a year,” said Christina Seelye, CEO of Maximum Games, “and we are beyond excited to play a part in that.”

“Partnering with Maximum Games to bring Bendy and the Ink Machine to the hands of all players, on all consoles, is the natural next step,” said David Eddings, head of games publishing, Rooster Teeth Games. “We’re thrilled to know that soon gamers all over the world will have the opportunity to experience this chilling adventure.”

Bendy and the Ink Machine launches on PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch this fall, and is available to preorder now.

          DIREITO: STJ - Paródia com fins comerciais ou lucrativos não viola Lei de Direitos Autorais      Cache   Translate Page      
O uso de paródia em campanha publicitária com fins comerciais não viola os direitos autorais da obra originária. Esse foi o entendimento da Terceira Turma do Superior Tribunal de Justiça (STJ) ao negar provimento a recurso especial em que a Universal Music do Brasil pedia a retirada de propaganda que parodiava o verso inaugural da música “Garota de Ipanema”.
A campanha de uma empresa de hortifrutigranjeiros tinha como mote a alteração do verso "Olha que coisa mais linda, mais cheia de graça" para "Olha que couve mais linda, mais cheia de graça". A propaganda foi divulgada no Rio de Janeiro e no Espírito Santo, em formato digital e impresso.
Na ação ajuizada contra a empresa e a agência de publicidade, a Universal – que detém 50% dos direitos patrimoniais da canção de Tom Jobim e Vinicius de Moraes – pedia a suspensão da divulgação das peças publicitárias, além de indenização por danos materiais e morais pelo uso não autorizado da obra. Ela alegou que a propaganda não configuraria paródia, uma vez que a ressalva às paródias e às paráfrases do artigo 47 da Lei 9.610/98 não se aplicaria quando houvesse finalidade comercial.
Censura
Em seu voto, o relator, ministro Villas Bôas Cueva, lembrou que a Lei de Direitos Autorais exige que a paródia não constitua verdadeira reprodução da obra originária. Além disso, não pode ter conotação depreciativa ou ofensiva, implicando descrédito à obra de referência ou, por extensão, ao seu autor. “Não se extrai da lei, pois, o requisito de que a criação possua finalidade não lucrativa ou não comercial, conforme defendido pela recorrente”, afirmou.
“Assim, compreende-se que impedir o uso de paródias em campanhas publicitárias apenas porque esse tipo de obra possui como finalidade primeva o uso comercial implicaria, por via transversa, negar o caráter inventivo de uma campanha publicitária, inibindo a liberdade de criação e, em última análise, censurando o humor”, esclareceu o ministro em seu voto.
Subjetividade
Para Villas Bôas Cueva, o juízo acerca da licitude da paródia depende das circunstâncias fáticas de cada caso e envolve um certo grau de subjetivismo do julgador ao aferir a presença dos requisitos de comicidade, distintividade e ausência de cunho depreciativo, conforme exigido pela legislação.
“O limite a separar a paródia da violação de direitos autorais é tênue e está estritamente relacionado com as circunstâncias fáticas de cada caso concreto”, ressaltou.
Para o relator, o conteúdo da campanha em análise não deprecia a obra originária, ficando claro que “possui intuito irreverente, caricatural, humorístico”. Além disso, observou o ministro, por terem sido veiculadas em formato impresso e digital, as peças não reproduziram a melodia, limitando-se a fazer mera alusão a um dos versos que compõem a letra, alterando a versão original da poesia de forma satírica.

          2018 fall Arkansas theater preview      Cache   Translate Page      
Phantoms, elves and Frank N. Furters take the stage this fall.

With the announcement in spring that the Arkansas Repertory Theatre was immediately suspending operations, theater aficionados found themselves looking to alternative sources to fulfill their drama desires. The announcement that The Rep will return next year is the big news for spring, but for fall, local theater venues have stepped up to the proverbial plate to provide quality entertainment, with spectacles ranging from professional touring productions, to community gems, to dinner and a show.

Celebrity Attractions brings to Robinson Center Performance Hall a trio of Broadway sensations. From Oct.12-14, the touring production of the Tony Award-winning "Jersey Boys" — based on the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons — graces the stage with hits like "Big Girls Don't Cry" and "Walk Like A Man." Smash No. 2 will play Nov. 20-25, when "Love Never Dies," Andrew Lloyd Webber's sequel to "The Phantom of the Opera," in which the Phantom lures his beloved Christine and their son to Coney Island, comes to Little Rock. Finally, Robinson hosts yet another show based on familiar characters: "Finding Neverland," a foray into the life of "Peter Pan" playwright J.M. Barrie (based on the Academy Award-winning film of the same name) Dec. 22-23.

For entertaining meals, Murry's Dinner Playhouse is a must. Continuing its jaw-dropping schedule of almost one new show a month, Murry's fall is packed with laughs. Running through Sept. 22 is "Social Security," a Broadway comedy about an 83-year-old Cinderella who teaches her unusual family that it's never too late to find your Prince Charming. "The Foreigner," about a pathologically shy Englishman who goes to a Southern boarding house and pretends not to understand English so he can rest, runs Sept. 25-Oct 30. Another Southern romp, "The Hallelujah Girls," in which five feisty female friends decide to shake up their lives in comical ways, plays Oct. 23-Nov. 17. For the holidays, Murry's will bring the smash-movie-turned-smash-musical "Elf," in which Santa's elf Buddy discovers he's actually a human and journeys to find his birth father, to its stage.

At the Argenta Community Theater in North Little Rock, the Upright Citizens Brigade Touring Co. will perform as part of the ACANSA Arts Festival Sept. 20-21. A show for fans of sketch comedy like "Saturday Night Live," the Upright Citizens Brigade is an improvisation group that had its origins in Chicago with founders Amy Poehler and Little Rock native Matt Besser (along with Ian Roberts and Matt Walsh).

If participation comedy is your thing, make a visit to the Trieschmann Fine Arts Building at Hendrix College in Conway for The Red Curtain Theater's production of "The Rocky Horror Show" Oct. 19-28. All sweet transvestites and cryogenically preserved motor-bikers should carefully select their viewing dates, however, as the Reynolds Performance Hall at the University of Central Arkansas will also be providing popular entertainment, with the razzle-dazzle knockout musical "Chicago," Oct. 27-28.

Dr. Frank N. Furter makes a 10-performance return to Little Rock, too, for Club Sway's fourth annual presentation of "Rocky Horror," this year under the direction of Brittany Sparkles. Tickets to Sway's super glam rock show sell out every year, so head to the club's Facebook page and get your tickets (and $5 prop bag) early.

Another classic, the Tony Award-winning "The Secret Garden," the tale of a spoiled orphan and the transformative power of a discovered garden, will be presented by the Pocket Community Theatre in Hot Springs Oct. 5-14. The theme of innocence continues with the Nov. 30-Dec. 9 production of "Yes, Virginia, There Is a Santa Claus," a play inspired by a simple, poignant letter written by an 8-year-old to the editor of the New York Sun.

For Christmas in Northwest Arkansas (Nov. 28-Dec. 30), Fayetteville's TheatreSquared will present "Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley," a play set two years after the events of Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice." As the family gathers at the Darcys to celebrate the holiday, Mary, the bookish middle child of the Bennets, finally has her day. TheatreSquared's season kicks off Sept. 23, with "Once," a tale of an Irish musician and a Czech immigrant who are drawn together by their love of music. The winner of a Tony, a Grammy and an Oscar, "Once" has been intimately reimagined for TheatreSquared.

Rosenbaum is still the best Post Crisis version we’ve ever had. It was sad that the cinematic version (eisenberg not Hackman) was such a freakin joke. I can’t believe Snyder couldn’t wrangle in his goofy performance. I don’t know what movie he thought he was in. It’s funny because I recall an interview with Jesse before the movie came out where he was criticizing the goofy nature of comic book movie villains and that he and Terrio came up with such a great take. I was not impressed by the writing or the performance. Rosenbauns version was spot on.

No worries, reading tone is always hard. Re: Rosenbaum replacing Lex Luthor: Let me preface this by saying that he was being very silly during their panel (last weekend was Rose City Comic Con in Portland, OR), but his relationship with the movies came up twice. First he said that he was disappointed to have not even been asked to read for the part. Later they were asked what one thing they would change about their respective characters in the films, and he said that there are enough "Zany, out there villains" (he used the Joker as an example), and that Lex Luthor should be more internal, so that when he does act it will carry more menace. I can't say that I disagree.

I was being tongue in cheek. The only things he said directly on the matter were that Superman is better than the Flash (I was wearing a Flash tee shirt), and that he is open to the idea of an animated Smallville revival, but he wouldn't read the continuation comics because he wants to find out where Clark is going at the same time as the character.

          U2 - 05.09.2018, Köln      Cache   Translate Page      

Nach der Vorfreude auf die Welttournee der irischen Band U2 kam zu Beginn der deutschen Termine der große Schreck: das Konzert in Berlin musste abgebrochen werden, da Sänger Bono Vox während dem fünften Lied seine Stimme verloren hatte. Gottseidank kam relativ zeitig die Entwarnung für den Fortgang der Tour und nachdem der erste Termin in der 'Lanxess Arena' bestens verlief, konnte man dem zweiten Auftritt in der der Kölner Halle mehr als erfreut entgegen sehen. Und diese Vorfreude befriedigte das Quartett auf beeindruckende Art. Mit einer ausgetüftelten Bühne, welche aus einer Art Laufsteg samt Plattform am Ende für große Publikums-Nähe sorgte und einer heb- wie senkbare Leinwand aus unzählig vielen Dioden, welche dazu wie ein überdimensionierter Schlauch begehbar war, konnte ein farb-gewaltiges Spektakel auf die angereisten Fans losgelassen werden. Gespickt mit den Liedern der letzten beiden Alben 'Songs Of Innocence' und 'Songs Of Experience' wie Cedarwood Road oder Red Flag Day erzählte der Auftritt von U2 die Geschichte der Band; eingebettet in das Zeitgeschehen ab dem zweiten Weltkrieg hinfort bis in das Heute mit der Quintessenz, dass es nichts stärkeres gibt, als ein gemeinsamer Bund. Dazu dienten alte Klassiker aus dem Schaffenswerk der Band wie I Will Follow oder Pride (In The Name Of Love). Die dazugehörigen Bilder und Filmsequenzen auf der Leinwand, welche sogar einen Comic-Strip der Musiker offenbarte, ließen die Blicke der Fans zwischen diesem riesigen Gebilde und der Band auf der Bühne hin und her springen - manchmal war es gar zuviel, um die gesamten Eindrücke in seinen Denkapparat aufzunehmen. Highlights waren sicherlich Lieder wie Sunday Bloody Sunday, bei der Bono, Larry, The Edge und Adam über den Laufsteg marschierten und eine minimalistische Variante des Liedes dem Publikum zu offenbaren. Ob nun das Bonos Mutter gewidmete Lied Iris (Hold Me Close) oder Acrobat, womit Sänger Bono das Thema Rockstars behandelt, was ihn anhand einer unterstützenden App als Teufelsfratze auf dem riesigen Bildschirm erscheinen ließ; alle Lieder wurden sehr überzeugend und in einem im Innenraum ausgezeichneten Sound vorgetragen. So flog die Story samt den Songs Evelation oder dem lieblichen Beautiful Day sehr kurzweilig durch den Abend, und U2 verabschiedete sich nach dem Lied City Of Blinding Lights sichtlich berührt und dankbar von dem Publikum der ausverkauften Halle. 

U2

Frenetischer Applaus veranlasste die Herren in einem nun reifen Alter für eine Zugabe zurückzukehren - nicht allzu überraschend, wenn man den bisherigen Verlauf der Tour kennt. Aber egal; mit dem sehr warmherzigen One sowie den Songs Love Is Bigger Than Anything In Its Way sowie 13 (There Is A Light) was ebenfalls mit leuchtenden Effekten der High-Tech Leinwand untermauert wurde, verschwanden die Musiker aus der noch lange applaudierenden Lanxess-Arena. U2 hat erneut aufgezeigt, wie ein modernes Konzert des 21. Jahrhunderts auszusehen hat! Dass jeder Besucher vielleicht eine etwas andere Setlist gewünscht hätte, ist aufgrund des über 40 jährigen Bestehens der Band nicht verwunderlich, aber wohl sehr schwer umsetzbar. Daher kann man mit Fug und Recht verlauten: ein Abend, der unvergessen bleibt!

          BATMAN: BEN AFFLECK CUELGA LA CAPA CON LA SALIDA DE CAVILL, KIT HARINGTON SUENA COMO SUSTITUTO      Cache   Translate Page      
A pesar de los PATALEOS del agente de Cavill -que debe haber hecho perder los nervios a Warner al no poder conseguir del actor ni el cameo para Shazam!- Warner ha lanzado un comunicado con el que le daban con la puerta en el culo a ambos.


Y ahora ya son bastantes webs la que anuncian que, aprovechando que el Pisuerga pasa por Valladolid, Ben Affleck se solidariza con su compañero y cuelga ya por fin la capa.

¡Como si no estuviese bastante "colgada" ya en las condiciones que está el pobre!

O eso, o DC se deshace de el ya de una vez, que no han faltado ocasiones.


Los rumores hablan del propio Harington como un posible sustituto de Affleck, mientras que el eterno Jon Hamm dice que el sabe bastante de cómics pero que nunca lo han contactado oficialmente.

¡Un poco mayor para comenzar una franquicia, me temo, si es que alguna vez arranca!

Hay que agradecer, eso sí, que estos al menos sean BLANCOS.


Ray Fisher confesaba recientemente que es bastante improbable a estas alturas que Cyborg tenga peli propia.

Lo último que se sabía de la peli de Flash era que la producción SE RETRASABA, sin fecha de inicio.

Así que creo Y ESPERO que los fans de todos estos actores se lo tomen muy mal Y BOICOTEEN Aquaman, más de lo que ya lo iban a hacer, vaya.

Yo, si fuera Gal Gadot, me daría prisa con terminar ese rodaje. ¡La veo correr más que Flash por esas calles de Almería!
          SUPERMAN: CAVILL FUERA (¡¡¡YUPPI!!!) ...¡¡¡¿MICHAEL B. JORDAN DENTRO...?!!! (¡¡¡YUPPI!!!)      Cache   Translate Page      
No es que para nosotros sea ninguna clase de "NOTICIA", pero parece que Warner ha aprovechado que el chaval ya tiene trabajo para confirmar -¡al fin!- que HENRY CAVILL NO VOLVERÁ A SER SUPERMAN.


En lugar de citar sus numerosos fracasos como asesino, bigotudo, loco resucitado, enemigo de la Justice League, etc, etc... dan como razones la imposibilidad de buscarle nuevas apariciones ya que se centran ahora en la película de SUPERGIRL -y, claro, TODO EL MUNDO SABE QUE SUPERMAN NUUUUUNCA SALE JUNTO A SUPERGIRL-.


Ahora, lo que nos ha dejado con las patas vueltas ha sido que el candidato a sustituirlo parece ser MICHAEL B. JORDAN.

Vamos a darle el beneficio de la duda y suponer que están pensando en introducir un SUPERMAN DE UN MUNDO ALTERNATIVO.

¡Pero, que demonios, hablamos de DC Films, con tal de copiar a Black Panther son capaces de hacer aterrizar el cohete en Tanzania y seguir desde allí la historia!




Moraleja del día: No nos acordamos ya cuando dijimos nosotros que esta noticia que hoy se confirma ocurriría, pero espero los descreídos que hay por ahí nos vayan prestando más atención.

¡Y esto no ha hecho más que empezar, que no se alegre Jordan, por que quedan muchas debacles por delante, que aún falta estrenar -y despedir- a Aquaman!

But there have been some superhero deaths that have taken us by surprise since they came at a time when we firmly believed that such heroes would always be around in one form or another. But the superheroes of this day and of yesterday are every bit as vulnerable as any that have ever existed and it’s been proven by the fact that several of

O. Henry's stories are some of the most beloved and popular American literature this side of Mark Twain, so it's no surprise that they eventually found their way into the kingdom of comic strips. Interestingly enough, the same syndicate, McClure, offered comic strips based on Twain and O. Henry.

Unlike the much better received Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn, which had a successful run of a decade and a half, O. Henry's Short Stories was not embraced by newspaper editors or readers. No wonder, though, when the series distilled most of the stories down to two or three daily strips in length. Granted, Porter's stories are short, but to boil down a beautiful story like The Love Philtre of Ikey Schoenstein into two daily strips is a criminal offense. What's next -- the complete Shakespeare plays in three weeks? Considering that I see no copyrights on the strip to the estate of O. Henry, I have a sneaking suspicion that these adaptations were unlicensed. Maybe McClure thought they could get away with thievery if they were quick about it?

I have yet to find a newspaper that ran the strip with perfect consistency, but the Brooklyn Eagle came close enough that I offer this index as my best guess. The scripts are uncredited (as well they ought to be), but the two cartoonists who double-teamed the series did take credit. Can anybody identify it?:

          Early Comics of the International Syndicate Part VI: The Toles Show, with a Side of 'Midget'      Cache   Translate Page      

From 1901 and stretching back to the 1896 inauguration of the International Syndicate weekly page, only C.E. Toles seemed to have any interest in producing a cartoon series. Mr. Toles was also by far the most prolific contributor, but I don't sense that series cartoons were disallowed of the other contributors.

Above we have a sample of the Toles series Reverend O. Shaw Fiddle D.D. I previously thought he had produced this series for the Philadelphia Press, but it turns out they were simply using bits and pieces of the International material in their paper. This series is a revival of the series Reverend Fiddle D.D. that Toles produced for the New York Journal in 1898.

This is the first real series, in the sense of using a continuing character, that ran on the International page. It is also the first series that ran on a regular basis. It ran each week from June 9 to July 14 1901.



The cartoonist who signed himself "Midget" produced many cartoons about bugs, and his style strongly resembles that of Gus Dirks. I thought for awhile that it might be Dirks using a pen name, but much later on, the same 'bug cartoonist' started signing himself as Joe Hanover on the International page.

Although I suppose you could make a case that all the bug cartoons are a sort of series, I didn't count them as such. "Midget" did manage to produce two episodes of Buggum and Snailey's Sideshow (2nd installment titled Buggum and Snailey's 20th Century Show). The first episode ran on June 23 1901, the second not until August 11. Committed to the series concept Mr. Midget certainly was not.


C.E. Toles produced six episodes of Tales of the Orient (later retitled Tales of the East) but it took him the better part of a year. The first episode appeared on November 12 1899, the last on October 14 1900. Each installment was rather text-heavy, just like the first one shown above.



The first continuing series on the International weekly page appeared so infrequently that I nearly didn't recognize it as such. Koon Tracks, a strip about stereotypical blacks with a hunting theme appeared on October 29 1899, December 17 1899, March 4 and March 25 1900.


Our last sample from the International Syndicate weekly page is its first installment in the Rochester Democrat-Chronicle, April 26 1896, and the earliest found in which it is a full page with masthead. Jeffrey Lindenblatt finds good evidence that a page existed as early as July 1895 in the Cincinnati Enquirer, but they chopped it up just enough so as to be uncertain as to the complete contents that were being distributed.

As you can see in the sample above , the early version was a little more text-heavy than it would be later, but right from the first it offered both panels and comic strips. The prolific C.E. Toles was its most frequent contributor right from the start.


          Ufo, un anno di indagini e avvistamenti anche in lucchesia      Cache   Translate Page      

“Seppur mantenendo la base e gli insegnamenti di Josef Allen Hynek ritengo che per certi aspetti l’ufologia debba evolversi e adeguarsi coi tempi moderni .

Infatti durante le molte indagini svolte da A.R.I.A. (associazione ricerca italiana aliena) sono stati inseriti metodi e  strumenti innovativi , tra questi il drone  almeno 6 anni di impiego per migliorare l’indagine della conformazione geologica del punto di avvistamento. Senza contare , per fortuna, dei mille siti e  software per i tracciamenti live di ogni tipo, da aerei, navi, palloni sonda, meteo, satelliti ecc . Anche la collaborazione esterna con ufologi indipendenti è un nuovo modo rivoluzionario di interazione e scambio di informazioni e pareri tra questi l’ottimo ufologo Emilio Acunzo Ecco perchè ritengo che l’ufologia Italiana in sessantanni non abbia fatto passi avanti , anzi sotto certi aspetti si è fossilizzata  rimanendo emarginata nel confine tra comico e fantascienza, mentre meriterebbe davvero molta più attenzione .. forse chi ha operato in questo campo fino ad oggi in Italia non lo ha fatto al meglio”.
La nota arriva dall’associazione che si occupa di analizzare le varie segnalazioni di Ufo:
“Tra le tante indagini sugli avvistamenti segnalati provenienti da tutta italia A.R.I.A. si è occupata anche di altri fenomeni come il contattismo, il ricercatore e ufologo Angelo Maggioni ad esempio fù il primo in assoluto a rivelare il retroscena di Bruno Borges  , il ragazzo  scomparso in Brasile l’anno scorso   , il suo caso divenne un caso mondiale ! Non solo il ricercatore indagò anche sulla scomparsa prematura del collega ufologo Max Spiers , Maggioni contattò la mamma e scoprì come morì Spiers e su cosa indagava ! Ma anche il bambino indaco Russo Boriska che disse di provenire dal centro di Marte. Un’altra indagine che ha visto tutto il team di A.R.I.A. coinvolta è il più famoso caso ufologico Italiano di contattismo  conosciuto come Caso amicizia o meglio W56 , tale caso portò un duro scontro tra il ricercatore ufologo Ligure savonese Angelo Maggioni e l’ufologo Roberto Pinotti! Si è potuto constatare da svariate documentazioni in parte reperibili sul web per mezzo di Romano Di Bernardo e una parte tramite mail personali e contatti con persone sia coinvolte che a conoscenza di fatti che riguardavano il suddetto caso. Così si scopre che il Caso Amicizia è fallace e pieno di contraddizioni  e privo di qualsiasi prova oggettiva. L’ufologo Angelo Maggioni spiega che tutte le prove smentiscono tale caso , dalla foto di Kenio che in realtà è più terrestre di noi , parrebbe essere un ragazzo di nome Patrick abitante in Svizzera , al mistero dell’Adriatico che vide anche la morte di due fratelli  nel periodo in cui proprio in quel punto di mare avvenivano trivellazioni particolari  e dannose dove ne parlo a questo link ( https://associazionericercaitalianaaliena.wordpress.com/2018/08/22/caso-amicizia-sempre-piu-imbarazzante-affonda-nelle-trivellazioni/ ) leggetelo per capire meglio…Non solo , come lo stesso Di Bernardo afferma in una intervista ( che trovate anche sul nostro gruppo facebook) anche i famosi ufo di Ghibaudi sembrerebbero provenire da un luogo molto terrestre..LA STANDA  !!! Un caso che è affondato e che in qualche modo ha messo in imbarazzo tutta l’ufologia!! Oggi mi stupisco che c’è ancora chi và in giro per convegni o che scrive libri affermando che tale caso sia reale e credibile !!Questo è un danno all’ufologia ed è per questo che A.R.I.A. non solo prende le distanze ma cerca una seria e vera collaborazione con la scienza, Maggioni infatti negli ultimi articoli spiega come secondo lui potrebbero essere andati i fatti e il cammino evolutivo della Terra, dell’Uomo e degli Alieni ( T.U.A.) coinvolgendo sia la scienza con Luca la prima cellula primordiale e la storia confrontando e ricercando nei siti come quello di Gobekli Tepe risposte ! Ma tornando agli avvistamenti ufologici tra il 2017/2018 ecco che A.R.I.A. propone in questa raccolta video i migliori avvistamenti dell’anno. Ovviamente la Liguria è presente e molto attiva e che quest’anno ci ha regalato anche diversi episodi di flottillas !! un numero consistente che può variare dalla decina al centinaio di oggetti volanti non identificati tutti assieme nella stessa zona , in questo caso le flottillas sono state avvistate a Savona ben due volte. Ma il caso più famoso a livello  nazionale ( ne ha parlato Ansa, il Secolo XIX , il Giornale, la Stampa, il Quotidiano, Libero,   il messaggero ecc ecc) è stato indubbiamente quello avvenuto a Seborga (IM)  per opera di un rappresentate delle forze dell’ordine.a seguire quello di Corio (privo però di documentazione video e fotografica)   Poi segue quello di Pigna (IM) , assolutamente importanti anche gli avvistamenti in Toscana a Capannori   ben due casi , uno di questi sarebbe molto somigliante ad un caso del 1972 avvenuto  in Austria   , un altro caso interessante è stato anche quello di Catania da noi esaminato e pubblicato nel 2017,due sfere  rimangono sospese nell’aria per poi spostarsi e scomparire,ma anche a Ivrea , Desenzano Del Garda , Porto Recanati  , Nizza (FR) , Genova,  persino due casi all’estero a Cleveland!! Un anno di intenso lavoro e di segnalazioni , ultima affascinante avvenuta durante l’eclissi Lunare  dove un abitante  della Toscana col suo telescopio ha catturato un oggetto davanti alla Luna poco prima dell’oscuramento. Sebbene sembrano tanti gli avvistamenti, l’ufologo savonese Maggioni spiega che  in realtà il dato in confronto 2016/17 è in calo ( ma non è ancora finito l’anno) meno avvistamenti , più concentrati in particolari giorni e indubbiamente non più solo sfere ma veri e propri UFO dalle forme più particolari .   In conclusione si può dire che  la Liguria , la Toscana e il Piemonte quest’anno conducono la classifica come regioni più attive e più visitate da oggetti volanti non identificati! Inoltre A.R.I.A. quest’anno è stata protagonista in diversi eventi radiofonici prima a radio Stella con il gruppo Italian Paranormal Research , poi a radio radio 104.5 e nel programma televisivo Salsedine a Viareggio condotto dal famoso Fabrizio Diolaiuti di cui è stato anche autore  di alcuni format per la RAI e Mediaset.  Ma anche l’autore ligure Luca Valentini ha dedicato un capitolo ad A.R.I.A. e al presidente e fondatore ufologo Angelo Maggioni, nel libro dal titolo il Cinque per Cento  che spiega appunto la difficile ricerca e indagine sugli avvistamenti che spesso vengono spiegati ma altre volte, quel 5% , invece non trovano spiegazioni scientifiche plausibili”.

Commento di Oliviero Mannucci: Caro Angelo Maggioni, sono stato un dirigente del CUN  e ti confermo in pieno quanto hai detto. L'ufologia in Italia non è quella di Roberto Pinotti e dei suoi seguaci di loggia. Il primo, oramai più che degli alieni, avrebbe bisogno di una badante. Mi ricordo il clamoroso caso dell'UFO Kinder , e ora il caso "Amicizia", che ha più ombre che luci.  Non parliamo poi dell'ignoranza dei suoi seguaci più stretti, che vorrebbero incontrare gli alieni, eppoi non sono capaci di rispettare chi in nome di una cultura spirituale millenaria è vegetariano come il sottoscritto, che si è trovato ad essere bersagliato a tavola, dalla sagra dei luoghi comuni sui vegetariani da parte di chi si nutre di cadaveri e farebbe meglio a stare zitto. Devo avere ancora circa 700 Euro dal sig. Pinotti, per gli articoli da me scritti su UFO Notiziario. Insomma il CUN, non è certamente un punto di riferimento dell'ufologia italiana e tanto meno di correttezza. Ma per fortuna ci sono tanti ricercatori indipendenti, compreso il sottoscritto, che si stanno organizzando per fare una ufologia slegata da ogni gruppo di controllo occulto. Insomma si respira un A.R.I.A nuova finalmente!

          Thread: Legendary: A Marvel Deck Building Game:: General:: Marvel Legendary Hero Profiles No. 59 - Spider-Woman      Cache   Translate Page      

by jhochges

Spider-Woman is the code name for Jessica Drew. She is the first in a line of Spider-Woman and probably the most well-known. Drew received her powers as a young girl after being injected by a serum involving irradiated spiders blood. This was later re-written in Spider-Woman: Origin to being blasted in the womb by some sort of ray that had Spider DNA. Either way, she was a human given powers by science. She is discovered by HYDRA who brainwashes her and turns her into an assassin. Eventually she is able to overcome her HYDRA programming and becomes a superhero. She joins forces with the wizard Magnus and SHIELD Agent Jerry Hunt to track down her father’s killer. After a series of adventures Drew eventually has her powers absorbed by a villain named, wait for it… Spider-Woman! Her powers, as well as the powers of the other Spider-Women who have popped up over time, are all absorbed by Mattie Franklin who is known as… Spider-Woman! Eventually Drew starts getting her powers back, however they remain unstable. Drew works with HYDRA again to get her powers fixed while joining SHIELD as a spy. Eventually it is reveal that the HYDRA cell helping her are actually Skrulls, and this leads to the Secret Invasion storyline where Drew was replaced by the Skrull Queen Veranke. That storyline also saw Drew (Veranke? Whatever) joining the New Avengers. If you haven’t noticed, check out the Vernake card art from the Core set and take a look at her outfit. Drew remained (joined?) the New Avengers after the Secret Invasion was prevented. She also worked for SWORD (Space SHIELD). She played a role in the Siege and Spider-Verse storylines before returning to her own comic book. This volume of Spider-Woman starts with Drew back as a private investigator, but also pregnant. There’s a lot of speculation as to who the father is, but turns out she went to a sperm bank. While fighting Skrulls she goes into labor, has an emergency C-Section, delivers her boy Gerry, and wipes out the Skrulls. While she has some qualms about returning to being a Superhero since she has a child that depends on her she decides that she should be a role model to her son and continue eventually paving the way for him as he inherited her powers. These powers include superhuman strength/speed, flight, pheromone manipulation, venom blasts and wall-crawling.

When Spider-Woman shows up in the HQ is she a (venom) blast, or does she make your skin (wall) crawl?

Keywords

Wall-Crawl – When you Recruit this Hero you may put it on top of your deck. Two things to remember: 1) You don’t have to put it on top of your deck. 2) It doesn’t work when you “gain” a Hero, only when you actually Recruit a Hero.

------

Bioelectric Shock – Seems a little expensive, but with Wall-Crawl and a relatively easy condition to fulfill it’s a fair price. Hits most of the time late game.

Radioactive Spider – Big recruit boost early on in the game it becomes a bit of a hindrance later when you don’t want to ditch a card in your hand. Good thing Spider-Woman has ways around this.

Venom Blast – Actually inferior to “Bioelectric Shock” in my opinion. It’s expensive and only provides 1 more Attack. It also searches for Recruit cards, and chances are if you adding a bunch of Attack to your pool, you want more of it.

Arachno-Pheromones – Good I guess if there’s expensive Heroes in the HQ. Not very exciting if you can’t trigger the Spider Friends trigger. Really nice to pick up early though.

Overall – 4/5 - Spider-Woman can work with virtually any Hero, which is usually a criteria for a 5/5, but Spider-Woman is a bit of a one trick pony. I really like her, like having her in the HQ, but she’s just shy of “top tier”. Her “mechanism” is checking the top of your deck, so Wall-Crawl on her cards mean you know what you’re getting if you Recruit first. It’s nice that her “check cards” are both Attack so you can do that. They are also useful for getting the card you had to ditch for “Radioactive Spider”, however you may not actually want that card. I feel that “RS” is quite a good choice early on, but don’t grab more than just a couple or you’ll be regretting it later as Recruit becomes less important, and you might not even want to play it due to the penalty of putting a card on your deck. The opposite is true about “Bioelectric Shock” and it becomes more powerful later in the game as you’ve been acquiring more and more Attack based cards, and hopefully you found a way to KO SHIELD agents. As I said above I actually like “BS” more than “Venom Blasts” because of the easier to afford price point. The extra Attack on “VB” certainly can be helpful at time and it’s not like it’s grossly overpriced, it’s just that 6 is expensive. What do you do if you have both “BS” and “VB” in your hand? Which do you play first? Well, if you don’t have any other tricks begin by playing the one that is checking for the resource that you don’t actually want. For example, if you want more Attack to be able to take down the Mastermind, play “VB” first. It will check to see if that card is Recruit, and if so get it out of the way so you can hopefully grab another card by playing “BS” next. If you played “BS” first and that card is Recruit you don’t get another chance to get an Attack card. These three cards make up the majority of her kit with the Rare essentially getting you an card in the HQ for free and possibly giving it Wall-Crawl, meaning that if you have “BS”/”VB” in your hand you can probably get it right away. Tigra’s Rare card “Mystic Talisman” is very similar, but I prefer this card over hers as usually the text on expensive cards are the important part over just it’s printed Recruit or Attack, and you can get that card even sooner.

As far as who works with Spider-Woman, do they have a printed Recruit or Attack symbol? Then go for it. Of course, there are Heroes that provide a better synergy than just that. She was built with Wall-Craw in mind, so she can be friends with anyone in Paint the Town Red, but I recommend Scarlet Spider over the rest. Almost all of his cards (13/14) have Wall-Crawl, and while Spider-Woman might not have any Instinct, “Perfect Hunter” is an awesome card to have with a hand full of “Bioelectric Blasts” and a Recruit card sitting on top. Because her cards are part of a “top deck” strategy, any other Hero pulling the same tricks will provide some synergy. Who’s the original “top decker”? That’s right, Gambit. While Spider-Woman might not be a X-Men, Gambit’s cards work wonder’s with her. “Stack the Deck” and then draw the card you put on top with Spider-Woman’s cards. Use “Hypnotic Charm” to ditch that crappy card you used “Radioactive Spider” to put on top. Daredevil (any of them really) works great. “Backflip” and “Balancing Act” work great as setup for Spider-Woman, and Wall-Crawl takes the “guess” out of “guess the cost of the top card of your deck”. Wall-Crawl also works awesome with Berserk. Put that “VB” on top of your deck then Berserk it off for +6 Attack! Spider-Woman rocks a lot of Range, so pair her with Havok to put the hurt on some Villains. Careful who your pair her with from X-Men, as Spider-Woman’s cards turn into dead draws with Piercing Energy cards. Did I forget to mention Vision? No, because I just did! Phasing allows you to swap that card with the top of your deck, very useful for guaranteeing draws with Spider-Woman, plus the Range activation and Size-Changing for the Vision. Other than “top deck” strategies, who else helps out Spider-Woman? Cards with built in draws, meaning “draw effects” that you don’t have to activate. Example from the Core Set – Hawkeye and Emma Frost. These cards are extremely useful if you find yourself with a bunch of “Bioelectric Shocks” in your hand. When you keep playing those “BSs” you run into a chance of hitting a Recruit card, leaving you stuck. If you have a card with build in draw then you can just grab that Recruit card and keep hunting for more Attack. This is one of the big reasons I like her with Scarlet Spider, lots of draw action there. Storm also works in this regard because of all the Range that both Heroes provide. Did somebody say “Draw” and “Range” in the same sentence? Here’s Iceman! Captain Marvel also has a Range/Strength set and they support each other well, just like in the comics. Dr. Strange is a pretty nice choice, and can add KO to your game if you make sure to grab some Illuminatis. Electro is a good choice too, He likes some Range available, but also “RS” can put a garbage card on top of your deck to KO with “Electroshock Therapy”. You can pair with Invisible Woman as well as Spider-Woman’s 4 cost cards are very desirable to purchase. She’ll even work with the WWH Heroes. Namora needs some Range class boost, and you can use “RS” to make sure you know what you are Feasting on. I’m going to recommend a 5 Hero HQ of Spider-Woman, Havok, Gambit, Scarlet Spider and Electro. Spider-Woman can be the start, Havok will take advantage of Wall-Crawl and Range cards in the discard, Gambit will help you stack the deck, literally, plus synergy with Havok, Scarlet Spider will be your wall crawl buddy and Electro can KO.

I’m sure there are many more cool combinations, what are your recommendations? Anybody wish we got Julia Carpenter instead? Anybody want to complain about the team affiliation? I would have went with Avengers myself, maybe even SHIELD, but I get that it’s the Spider-Man set.

          Thread: Maniacal:: Crowdfunding:: MANIACAL: my 48 hour pitch!      Cache   Translate Page      

by severian73

With a scant 48 hours left in our successful Kickstarter for MANIACAL, I wanted to try and convince as many of you as I can to come over and join the rest of our awesome backers. Why should you back MANIACAL? Here are my answers:

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/eaglegryphon/infamous-a...

Kickstarter value

If you back the Kickstarter, you’re getting the game at a major discount. Right now, we suspect the game will be around $90 MSRP. You can pledge for a copy of MANIACAL (Supervillain level) for $59. Why the high MSRP on this game? Well, it’s primarily cost of materials and art budget. EGG is dedicated to producing high-quality games, with deluxe components, great inserts, and deluxe boxes. That’s just their current marketing angle, and it does mean that costs run a tad higher. MANIACAL also comes with a ton of components: lots of cards, and a hefty number of custom dice. We wanted the game to exude theme and comic-book villainy, so we bent over backwards on the art, hiring Rob Guillory to draw over 120 unique illustrations for us. All of that means that when you open this box, you’ll be blown away by how great everything looks and feels. The same was true for my previous game, Clockwork Wars.

On top of that, we do have some Kickstarter bonuses and promotional items that make backing the campaign more enticing. You can back at the $69 Overlord level and get a new Finale card that will be hand-signed by Rob Guillory. Everyone who backs at a level high enough to get a copy of the game gets our Legendary promo contract, “Infringe on corporate intellectual property rights.” We also need some more help unlocking the final few Stretch-Goals of the campaign, which are easily within reach.

Finally, as a Kickstarter backer, you’re helping an artistic dream and vision become a reality. I won’t overemphasize this one, because I know there’s a lot of cynicism out there about established companies/publishers using KS as an overblown pre-order system. I’ll just say that my games wouldn’t exist without Kickstarter, and without the support of backers like you.

MANIACAL is easy to learn and play

One consistent theme you’ll hear from our previewers and blind playtesters is that MANIACAL is easy to understand and jump right into. It looks heavier than it is, because of all the components and piles of cards. But players get into the flow of it very quickly and immediately can start strategizing and having fun. In other words, this is a game that makes a great first impression. If you want to learn more about how the game plays, I encourage you to check out our current rulebook (here in the Files section), or watch the Chubby Meeple preview video. He does a great job giving an overview of how the game works.

MANIACAL has lots of small, fun decisions

Probably the most important feature of any game design is that players should be able to make fun and interesting decisions – decisions that directly impact their success in the game, in ways that make sense. In MANIACAL, you’ll always be confronted with quick, fun decisions: what room card do you draft, what contract will you attempt, which henchmen will you assign, what rooms will you activate? Behind each of these decisions are many layers of information that you can use to try and optimize your success in the game. Or, you can fly by the seat of your pants. I think this flexibility in how “seriously” you can take the strategic decisions of the game is one of its strong-points. I guarantee that over the course of many games, you will get better at playing MANIACAL. You will understand the odds a bit better, and learn how to play to your supervillains strengths. You will get better at recruiting henchmen and building the right kind of team to tackle a Legendary contract. And this learning process is incredibly satisfying.



MANIACAL is highly replayable

Every game will play out differently, as the available henchmen will vary, the contracts on the world map will vary (and be in different locations), and the contracts rewards/punishments will vary. One game you might find yourself with a super-henchman: Doctor Vektor + Psionic Blast. And he’ll roll through a host of single-henchman contracts, winning you the game. In another game, you’ll have a small teach of weenie-scientists, hanging out in your base – but you’ll be able to crank out Infamy by activating your Idea Lab.

And then there’s the great variety in Supervillain strengths and weaknesses. These unique abilities are great fun to play with, and you’ll probably want to start doing that quickly. Every villain gives you a slightly different play-style to experiment with, and you’ll likely gravitate towards a favorite after trying them all out. The Finales expand replayability enormously, by offering end-game bonuses for fulfilling secret objectives. They will (mildly) guide your play, encouraging you to recruit certain types of henchmen, for example, or attempt certain kinds of contracts.



MANIACAL tells a great story, and one full of laughs

A consistent feature of every game of MANIACAL I’ve played or watched has been the emergence of a narrative – or lots of little mini-narratives. Like that time when I failed at opening up a homicidal clown academy, and Mr. Jones developed a severe clown phobia, incapacitating him for the rest of the game. Or that time Dave couldn’t blow up the moon, but did write a best-selling autobiography and made a ton of money.

I think it’s important to indulge in the flavor of MANIACAL, and to take your time appreciating the art and reading the flavor text. I really do. I think if a group played this game purely mechanically, just focusing on the numbers and dice and odds and ignoring the theme entirely, it would lose a lot of its appeal. In this way, MANIACAL is a lot like other “adventure-style” games, like Eldritch Horror or Fortune & Glory.



Thanks for listening, and please come check out the Kickstarter!

          Comment on Screenplay Review – Triple Frontier by Master John Moss      Cache   Translate Page      
It’s a BAD IDEA. Do NOT play fast and hard with people’s ideas of who an iconic character can be. It will totally come back to bite you in the ass. Sooner or later, after the disappointing returns are counted, people will demand that you revert back and the creatives will look like giant bozos for the attempt. In the comics, Superman is back to wearing his red underwear on the outside again. Am I surprised by this? Fuck, no!! Why? Because that’s what people think of when they think of Supes. (His outfit a riff on circus stronmen of yesteryear.) Not long ago, Playboy magazine made the breathtakingly stupid decision not to feature nudity in their magazines anymore. You know, The Very Thing That It’s Best Known For! Didn’t last. Shocking. You wanna change the ethnicity or sex of a secondary character, they way Lawrence Fishburne played Perry White in ‘Man of Steel’. Well... OK. Fine. Some purists are gonna grumble, but they can get over themselves. It’s not a big deal. But Superman, himself?? Yeah, no. This has nothing to do with racism and everthing to do with REVERANCE. Some long-standing elements of a property shouldn’t be arbitrarily changed. You’re just gonna make people - FANS! - scrunch up their faces upon hearing the news and say, “They did WHAT with my childhood hero??”

Малоподвижный образ жизни — бич нашего времени. Люди полдня сидят на работе, потом уставшие и обессиленные приходят домой и там тоже стараются как можно быстрее присесть или даже прилечь. На тех, кто бегает по утрам или совершает пешие прогулки по парку, многие смотрят с недоумением или, наоборот, с завистью. Оправдания себе, любимым, придуманы давным-давно: «то лапы ломит, по хвост отваливается». Может, вместо того чтобы поддаваться собственным болезням, лучше их излечить? Упражнение «Золотая рыбка» — именно то, что тебе нужно! Регулярные ежедневные занятия — и твоя мечта стать здоровым осуществится!

 

Польза:

  • нормализация кровообращения;
  • освобождение зажатых сосудов и нервов;
  • регулировка работы сердца, печени, почек и мозга;
  • очищение кожи;
  • снятие нервного напряжения и стресса;
  • исправление осанки.

Растяжка перед упражнением:

  1. Ложись на пол или другую ровную и твердую поверхность.
  2. Закинь руки за голову и постарайся вытянуться во всю длину. Ноги тоже тяни!
  3. Прижми пятки и бедра к полу, а носки направь на себя.
  4. Растягивай позвоночник 5–7 секунд.
  5. Поочередно тянись в разные стороны, растягивая позвоночник, словно канат, и одновременно тянись пяткой правой ноги вперед, а руками в противоположную сторону, считая до семи.
  6. Повтори то же самое с левой пяткой.8/jemchyjinka.ru/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/8-1-330x165.jpg#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000" target="_blank#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000">https://jemchyjinka.ru/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/8-1-330x165.jpg 330w" style="box-sizing: border-box; border-style: none; height: auto; max-width: 100%; vertical-align: middle;" width="600" />

Упражнение «Золотая рыбка»

  1. Положение не меняй, руки за головой. Сомкнутые ладони находятся под шейными позвонками.
  2. Ноги плотно прижми к полу, носки — на себя.
  3. Начинай вибрировать телом справа налево, представляя что ты — рыбка, плывущая и резвящаяся в воде. Вибрации выполняй в течение 1–3 минут.7/jemchyjinka.ru/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/7-1-330x165.jpg#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000" target="_blank#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000">https://jemchyjinka.ru/wp-content/uploads/2017/08/7-1-330x165.jpg 330w" style="box-sizing: border-box; border-style: none; height: auto; max-width: 100%; vertical-align: middle;" width="600" />

Советы

  1. Во время выполнения упражнения позвоночник прижимай к полу.
  2. Носки — на себя, тело двигай вправо-влево, а не вверх-вниз. Для удобства можешь приподнять затылок и ступни ног.
  3. Чтобы достичь максимального эффекта — делай упражнение утром и вечером, начиная с 1 минуты и постепенно доведя время до 3 минут.
    Результат будет ощутим уже через несколько занятий!

В борьбе с недугами главное — не сдаваться и искать тот способ спасения, который подходит именно тебе. Обязательно попробуй это упражнение и расскажи о нëм знакомым. Если позвоночник в норме — первый шаг на пути к здоровью сделан!

          Queer icons of my youth who weren't actually queer      Cache   Translate Page      

Growing up a nerdy, Latinx, closeted kid in the '90s meant I didn’t see a lot of myself in characters on TV, in movies or even in the comics or books that I read.

Growing up in the suburbs of New Jersey, when that I’d tell people I was Puerto Rican, it was often met with surprise. “You don’t look it!” they'd blurt out, to which my grandma would often say, “What? Are we supposed to have two heads?”

I never quite fit in. Even when I met other Latinx kids in middle school, they asked me why I acted “so white” (aka was a big nerd).

          The Three Stooges E41, Calling All Curs 1939 Curly, Larry, Moe      Cache   Translate Page      

The Three Stooges, E41, Calling All Curs, 1939, Curly Howard, Moe Howard, Larry Fine.

Hi from Australia. Remember to click follow and like and stay tuned for more 3 Stooges and great old classic cartoons. Will soon be uploading Laurel And Hardy. Cheers from William.

Support Our Work @ https://www.patreon.com/user

Plot
The Stooges are skilled veterinarians at a pet hospital who are the proud surgeons of Garçon, a prized poodle of socialite Mrs. Bedford (Isabelle LaMal). They successfully remove a thorn from his paw. Dognappers posing as reporters (Lynton Brent, Cy Schindell) dognap Garçon.

Before the kidnapping crime is discovered, the trio attempts to enjoy a dinner of bones and dog biscuits at a long table with all the other dogs who are patients at the hospital. It's during the meal that a nurse discovers Garçon is missing. The boys frantically try to trick Mrs. Bedford by disguising a mutt as Garçon. However, when Mrs. Bedford's maid (Libby Taylor), who is frightened of dogs, accidentally vacuums a clump of glued-on fur off the mutt's shaggy coat, Mrs. Bedford threatens to throw the Stooges in jail. Desperate, the trio use the mutt as a bloodhound to track down the crooks. When they discover the enemies' hideout, a big fight ensues. Larry and Moe get knocked out, but then Curly defeats both crooks. The boys hear Garçon quietly barking from inside a closet, only to discover that the prized poodle has had a litter of pups.

Production notes
Filmed on December 27-30, 1938,[2] the title Calling All Curs is a pun on the phrase "Calling all cars!"[1] A colorized version of this film was released in 2006 as part of the DVD collection entitled "Stooges on the Run."[3]

This marks one of the few times the Stooges have respectable, professional careers as opposed to working as blue-collar laborers.[1]

This was one of Curly Howard's favorite Stooge films as he was a well-known dog lover.[1]

Quotes
Moe (to the Garçon in disguise): "Listen, bloodhound! If you got any 'blood' in you, you'd better start pointing and point out those dognappers! Get the point?!"
Curly: "Hmmm, n'yuk, n'yuk n'yuk. He must be a Pointsetter." (referring to the Poinsettia flower)
Moe: "Quiet, you hot air-dale!" (referring to an Airedale Terrier and making a pun on the phrase "hot air" as in "empty talk intended to impress")[1]

Each week some of the best improvisers in Birmingham take to the stage to deliver Fat Penguin Improvs own unique style of high energy, high concept comedy.

The performers will take a suggestion from the audience and then tell a true-life story directly based on the suggestion. The rest of the performers then create a series of comedy scenes inspired by the story. This show takes a very intimate look at the lives of our performers, then ruthlessly explores the comic premises from within those stories in a typically high-paced Fat Penguin style. The show is 100% improvised.

The Armando Diaz experience first appeared in 1995 at iO Chicago, inspiring similar shows to start up all over the world.

          Henry Cavill ya no interpretará más a 'Superman'      Cache   Translate Page      
Warner Bros. no prevé de momento hacer otra película de “Superman” con Henry Cavill, dijo una persona familiarizada con los planes del estudio el miércoles.

La persona habló a condición de anonimato por no estar autorizada a hablar públicamente de este asunto.




Warner Bros. emitió un comunicado diciendo que no ha tomado una decisión sobre el regreso de Cavill.

“Aunque no se han tomado decisiones respecto a ninguna de las próximas películas de Superman, siempre hemos sentido tenido un gran respeto y una gran relación con Henry Cavill, y eso se mantiene intacto", dijo el estudio en un comunicado luego que un artículo de Hollywood Reporter señalara que Cavill podría dejar de dar vida muy pronto al Hombre de Acero.




Warner Bros. está reformulando su estrategia con DC Comics tras el rechazo de los fans y la crítica a “La liga de la justicia” y "Batman v. Superman". Cavill interpretó por primera vez a Superman en "Man of Steel" de 2013.

Representantes de Cavill no respondieron de inmediato mensajes en busca de declaraciones el miércoles.

Warner Bros. tiene ahora la atención puesta en "Supergirl". Otras de las películas en su horizonte son "Shazam!" con Zachary Levi, "Wonder Woman 1984", que se estrenará en noviembre de 2019, y una película de Flash con Ezra Miller. "Aquaman", con Jason Momoa, se estrena en diciembre.

Una cinta solo de "Batman", que iba a ser dirigida y estelarizada por Ben Affleck, será ahora dirigida por Matt Reeves, quien se anticipa que busque a un nuevo actor para el personaje.

          Somka108 is Making Witch Hunter      Cache   Translate Page      

An indie developer is working on Witch Hunter, a porn parody of the cartoon series W.I.T.C.H.

W.I.T.C.H was a highly popular Italian magical girl franchise consisting of comic books, an animated series, books, graphic novels, video games, and a manga adaptation. It tells the story of five girls who protect the heart of the universe by fighting monsters.

A Russian indie developer going by the handle Somka108 is currently working on a pornographic parody of the series. In it, players assume the role of Cedric, a monstrous army general serving Prince Phobos Escanor. Escanor plans to absorb the power of the hearth of the universe and of his sister, Elyon, using their combined strength to break the barrier between his world and the world of the humans. Unfortunately, Escanor’s sister ran away to Earth, leaving Cedric with the task of finding her. He is to not only bring her back but also corrupt her so that she can be ready for the absorption ritual.

To fulfill his goal, Cedric transforms into a human and assumes the role of a bookstore clerk. It doesn’t take long until he finds Escanor’s sister, and discovers that she’s friends with the magical guardians. This is when his work truly begins, and the player takes over.

Made in Ren’py, Witch Hunter is a corruption simulator. The player has to collect resources and find a way to make Elyon less inhibited and defile her. As her friends defend her, he also has to find ways to disempower them.

You can find out more about Witch Hunter on Somka108’s Patreon, where you will also find the demo version. There're some issues with the demo: when you first launch it might be in Russian, you can change that in the options menu. Also, your saves may sometime load you further back in time than they should, so make sure to make new ones regularly in case one becomes corrupted.

          Man of Steel No More: Henry Cavill Is Reportedly Out as DC's Big Screen Superman      Cache   Translate Page      

Henry Cavill's days as the Man of Steel are officially over, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The news comes amid a few big shakeups in Warner Bros.'s DC cinematic universe, which recently saw the departure of Ben Affleck - who appeared as Batman in Batman v. Superman and Justice League - and a renewed focus on an upcoming Supergirl movie, which will be an origin story about the teen superheroine. That means, if the studio sticks to DC comics lore, Cavill wouldn't be able to appear in the film anyway, since Superman's age wouldn't line up.

The reason for the 35-year-old British star's exit is reportedly due to a breakdown of contract negotiations between Cavill's representatives and Warner Bros., who were trying to enlist him for a cameo in the upcoming DC superhero comedy Shazam!, which stars Zachary Levi and is set to hit theaters in April. Apparently the issues arose due to scheduling conflicts because of his new role in Netflix's The Witcher, as well as the fact another solo Superman outing won't happen for quite some time. A studio source explained to THR that "Superman is like James Bond, and after a certain run you have to look at new actors." When the deal fell through, so too did any chances of Cavill appearing as the iconic character in future films, which shouldn't be surprising for anyone keeping tabs on his mustache controversy with Warner Bros. last year.

Since WB's DC properties have been having a rough patch lately in terms of critical response - translation: they've all been panned, with the exception of 2017's Wonder Woman - the studio is apparently also trying to "hit a reset button" with the DCEU, acknowledging that "some parts of the previous movies didn't work" and moving towards a new direction. While it's unclear what, exactly, that new direction is, Cavill definitely won't be along for the ride.


          Henry Cavill might be out as Warner Bros.’ Superman      Cache   Translate Page      

Henry Cavill might be out as Superman, Warner Bros.’ Man of Steel, according to a report out Wednesday.

As Warner Bros. turns its focus to a “Supergirl” movie – with any standalone “Superman” flicks on the back burner for a few years – scheduling conflicts appear to have scuttled plans for a Cavill cameo as the caped crusader in the upcoming “Shazam!” film, sources told the Hollywood Reporter.

A source said that the studio is trying to hit a “reset” button on its DC Universe and head slowly in a different direction.

“Superman is like James Bond, and after a certain run you have to look at new actors,” a studio source told the trade publication.

Reps for the studio and the actor did not respond to requests for comment Wednesday morning.

Cavill’s Superman was resurrected in the 2017 “Justice League” movie after sacrificing himself to save the world in 2016’s “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.”

The actor told The Times in December that he was contracted to do another Superman movie and felt hopeful about the role.

“There’s a wonderful opportunity to tell the Superman story,” he said at the time. “Now there is a fantastic chance to show Superman in his full colors and tell a very complex, character-driven movie that is based on story and have that wonderful sensation of hope and happiness.”

Cavill saw “Justice League” as a transformation from the previous film.

“I feel like this is the natural progression from the end of ‘Man of Steel’ into what he is now. This is a rebirth of the character, to coin the D.C. comics franchise right now: It’s a refresh.”

At that point, he had already signed up to be in the eight-episode Netflix series “The Witcher.”


          Imprenditore milionario si fa uno spinello in Diretta Radiofonica      Cache   Translate Page      

Un’intervista che ha fatto il giro del mondo in pochi giorni. Il noto imprenditore statunitense Elon Musk, CEO delle aziende Tesla e Space X, è stato recentemente ospite al podcast "Joe Rogan Experience", del seguitissimo comico Joe Rogan, per parlare delle novità riguardanti le sue aziende. L’intervista, trasmessa in Diretta radio e video giovedì 6 settembre, è andata in onda dopo un periodo piuttosto negativo per l’azienda Tesla, con le recenti dimissioni dell’ex direttore della contabilità Dave Morton, e i pessimi risultati registrati in Borsa nell’ultimo periodo.

Ma a sorprendere gli ascoltatori non sono state le dichiarazioni di Musk, che anzi si è dilungato sulla necessità di ricorrere ad energie rinnovabili, e su spiegazioni in merito ai progetti per le sue aziende. A fare il giro del mondo è stato ciò che è successo durante la diretta, ovvero ospite e conduttore che hanno fumato marijuana e bevuto whisky insieme. Azioni del tutto legali in California (dov’è stato prodotto il web show), e l’uso di marijuana per scopo ricreativo è consentito.

Nel corso dell’intervista di oltre due ore, caricata per intero sul canale youtube “Joe Regan Experience”, l’imprenditore statunitense ha dichiarato di non essere un consumatore abituale di marijuana, e ha parlato anche delle politiche aziendali riguardo i controlli antidroga per i dipendenti, dato che le tracce di THC nel sangue devono comunque essere entro i limiti consentiti.

Nonostante non ci sia stato nessun comportamento contro la legge, gli investitori di Tesla sembrano lo stesso non aver apprezzato il piccolo svago in diretta da parte del CEO dell’azienda, che ha accettato tranquillamente lo spinello e il bicchiere di whiskey generosamente offerti dal conduttore.

          '13 Reasons Why' Star Katherine Langford Is Returning To Netflix      Cache   Translate Page      

If you've been bummed over having to say goodbye to Katherine Langford on 13 Reasons Why, you can wipe those tears away because the Aussie actress is returning to Netflix as the lead in Cursed, a series from famed comic book writer/artist Frank Miller (Sin City) and writer/producer Tom Wheeler (Puss In Boots), which takes on a key character from the King Arthur legend, Lady of the Lake. Zetna Fuentes (Ray Donovan, Jessica Jones) is set to direct and serve as executive producer on the first two episodes of the 10-episode series.

According to Netflix, Cursed is a re-imagination of the Arthurian legend, told through the eyes of Nimue (Langford), a teenage heroine with a mysterious gift who is destined to become the powerful (and tragic) Lady of the Lake. It is a coming-of-age story in which Nimue joins forces with mercenary Arthur on a quest to find Merlin and deliver an ancient sword.

At the same time, Wheeler is writing the companion book, with Miller providing full-color and black-and-white illustrations, and it is scheduled to be published in fall 2019 by Simon & Schuster. This is believed to be the first time the same creative team will be writing a book and TV series based on it simultaneously as they get to explore the characters from the book in more detail on screen.

I don't know about you, but with a female lead character and an amazing plot, I don't think I can wait until it comes to Netflix!


          ‘Game of Thrones’ Star Kit Harrington Is Questioning The Lack of Gay Actors in Marvel Films & It's About Time      Cache   Translate Page      

It turns out Jon Snow does know something. 

Game of Thrones star Kit Harrington echoed what many fans have long asked for, when he made a call for better representation of gay actors and characters in Marvel Films during an interview to promote his new film, The Life and Death of John F. Donovan at the Toronto Film Festival. 

Harrington told Variety, “There’s a big problem with the masculinity and homosexuality that they can’t somehow go hand in hand. That we can’t have someone in a Marvel movie who’s gay in real life and plays some super hero. I mean, when is that going to happen?”

Marvel has faced criticism for the lack of diversity in its films, as many feature white, heterosexual male actors. Recent films like Black Panther and the upcoming Captain Marvel have made some progress in increasing diversity, but there is still a long way to go.

Casting queer actors in a superhero film is not unheard of. Ian McKellen played Magneto in the X-Men franchise, Ezra Miller starred as the Flash in 2017’s Justice League, bisexual actor Andy Mientus had a role on The Flash TV show and it was recently announced that Ruby Rose will be the star of the new Batgirl television series. But Harrington’s director, Xavier Dolan (who is himself openly gay) points out that when these positive casting decisions have been made, fans often comment that the character is “too gay” or “not gay enough.”

But Harrington (who has not starred in any of Marvel’s films) makes an important point: Marvel Studios properties reach a wide audience (with films like Avengers: Infinity War bringing in over $640.9 million dollars globally in its opening weekend) and can use that power to have a large and lasting impact when it comes to diverse representation in film. 

The Marvel comics offer plenty of LGBTQ characters that can be developed for film and there are plenty of LGBTQ actors to play them. If fans and famous faces continue to advocate for increased representation in mainstream media, hopefully Marvel, along with other major studios, will take note.

          Ed Wood Wednesdays: The Wood Collaborator Odyssey, Part 13 by Greg Dziawer      Cache   Translate Page      
The witching hour is now at hand, gentle reader!

Jack's studio/lab, Cinema 35.
"I have a sorrow streak for him," said late producer Jacques "Jack" Descent of Edward D. Wood, Jr. "I have always admired the outcast."

I first became friends with Jack about three years ago. In April 2016, six months into our friendship, I asked him to write a remembrance of Eddie, with whom he worked on several movie projects. Jack proved to be a valuable source of information about Ed Wood's years in the adult film industry.

Descent's name is one that devoted Wood fans should recognize. A French-Canadian transplant, Jack was running his own combination film studio and lab in the 1960s in North Hollywood, just as hardcore porn was achieving mainstream popularity. Into the 1970s, he printed 8mm adult loops for the under-the-counter/sex shop/home market, working for such interesting characters as Noel Bloom, son of Ed's loyal patron and publisher Bernie Bloom, and Mickey Zaffarano, the purported mob kingpin of '70s porn distribution. In fact, Jack unreservedly described Mickey as "a friend."

Meanwhile, Eddie was also toiling in the porno film business back then, writing subtitles and box cover summaries for those silent loops and likely directing and/or editing at least some of them. He even appeared on camera in an infamous loop called The Jailer, a fact that merited mention in Rudolph Grey's seminal 1992 text, Nightmare of Ecstasy: The Life and Art of Edward D. Wood, Jr. And an examination of the loop proves beyond doubt that Ed was there, a sombrero on his head and a dildo in his hand.

But I digress. 

The seeds of Eddie's association with Jack Descent go back to 1965. Born and raised in the rural outskirts of Montreal, Jack Descent arrived in Hollywood (via Detroit) and opened a camera shop on Santa Monica Blvd. that year. It was there he met a would-be actor and amateur geologist named Bill Morley. This would prove a crucial encounter in a number of ways.

Within a few years, Jack was making inroads into the film industry. As a producer and cinematographer, he shot a television pilot in 1967. Intended as a half-hour documentary series, The Rock Hound, as essayed by Bill Morley, was to explore the southwestern United States as an emissary of the then-popular fad of amateur geology. The pilot episode ultimately reached the airwaves, and the series was picked up, albeit by a rival network. But Rock Hound ended before it ever really got started. Tragically, a plane carrying the crew and footage for the series crashed.

Later, back in Hollywood, Bill Morley stopped by the Cinema 35 Center, Jack's then-newly-opened studio/lab, located in what had been a vast automotive repair complex, complete with two drive bays in front. This time, Bill brought a friend with him: Eddie Wood, by then a fortysomething writer of lurid paperbacks.

Jack's memory of Edward D. Wood, Jr. is one that differs substantially from the tragicomic, frankly derisive image that the cult filmmaker has maintained for decades. Gregarious, empathetic, and without judgment, Jack remembered Eddie as a friend and associate, terms of admiration and affection in an industry normally short on both.

It's easy enough to think of Eddie as merely a clownish drunk, stumbling around in a too-tight girdle and white vinyl boots, penning pornography, his Hollywood dreams dashed. But Jack Descent provided a different perspective on a man he knew over the course of nearly a decade. In all, Jack told me that he purchased five screenplays from Ed Wood. One of those scripts was turned into the still-missing Operation Redlight (1969). This film is something of a holy grail, since in addition to writing the screenplay, Ed also acted in the film—sometimes in drag, sometimes in a silk dressing gown—as Madame Bruce Hammerford (aka "Momma"), an on the-lam adult novelist who winds up running a brothel in Vietnam.

For a time, Jack told me, Ed Wood lived in an apartment not far from the Cinema 35 Center on Hollywood and Western. Ed and Bill Morley stopped by the place often, and Jack guessed them to be drinking buddies. For a time, the angora sweater Ed had donned in Operation Redlight hung in the front office at Cinema 35.

From April 2016, here are some of Jack's recollections of Ed:
Jacques Descent (1937-2018)
Finding, listing another book, story, film, does not make much difference nor does it change what we know about Ed Wood. Enough has been said, written and produced about Ed. We get the picture. 
I met and knew a different man than what is described in most all articles and bios about Ed. He was more subtle with me and was always trying to project himself in my presence as an honorable talent with achievement, as if he wanted to tell me that he had done great things and the seeming trash around him was merely a means of survival. Undoubtedly, he was a terrible businessman. 
Was he prolific in his writing? Of course! I have never met anyone like him, and he could not have fooled me by taking credit for work he had not genuinely done. When an idea for a story or a script evolved, or simply was talked over with Ed, and with the issuance of a $250 check as a 50% deposit for a 60 to 70 pages script, it would result in me receiving a well-prepared piece of writing within a week with Ed looking for the next $250. 
I feel I owe it to Ed to tell how I perceived him and how I really believe he was an incredibly talented person and had he received proper guidance and management he might have taken a much different course. I liked Ed and I liked his professionalism. Whatever we did, he was always punctual, well-mannered and always knew his stuff. That probably made it easier since he had written most of it. In productions he would listen to comments and suggestions, and he always wanted to please. I never heard him raise his voice at anyone. 
While he sometimes enjoyed the limelight in the trash business, he knew that he deserved and could do much better work if given the opportunity. He deserved more and better.

Jack and I spoke often of Ed in the years before he passed. He told me that Ed signed over the rights to Mama's Diary, the paperback novel upon which Operation Redlight was based, by signing an actual copy of the book. (Incidentally, that book is an exceedingly rare item these days. Try to find a copy yourself.) And Jack told me much more that I'll share with you in future installments of this series.

          The 27 Best Movies and Shows to Watch in Portland: Sept 14-26      Cache   Translate Page      
From Ursula K. Le Guin to American Vandal. by Mercury Things to Do Staff
MEANS WE RECOMMEND IT. Theater locations are accurate Friday-Thursday, unless otherwise noted. Movie times are updated daily and are available here.

American Vandal: Season 2
Shot in Portland but set in Bellevue, Washington, the second season of Netflix’s true-crime mockumentary is just as clever and addictive as the first. This time, earnest high-schooler documentarians Peter Maldonado (Tyler Alvarez) and Sam Ecklund (Griffin Gluck) take their investigation skills to St. Bernadine’s Catholic School, where, ever since a tragedy dubbed “The Brownout,” the student body has been terrorized by a splattery series of “poop crimes” perpetrated by “The Turd Burglar.” The suspects and victims are numerous, from beloved basketball star DeMarcus (Melvin Gregg) to vest-wearing, tea-sipping Kevin “Shit Stain” McClain (Travis Tope); in their unflagging quest for the truth, Peter and Sam dig deep into teachers’ dubious alibis and students’ revealing emoji habits. This season is a slower burn than the first, but over the course of its eight episodes, its perfectly played characters prove deeper and better, including “a theater kid who lives in the friend zone” and a man known only as “Hot Janitor.” While Peter and Sam are stymied by secrets, lies, and possible sabotage (Mrs. Wexler, St. Bernadine’s dean of students, repeatedly refuses their requests for an interview), the duo’s intrepid reporting and keen crime-scene analysis (“That is way too big for dogshit”) ensures the Turd Burglar’s identity will be discovered. Like the first, this season of American Vandal is consistently hilarious, but it’s also sneakily, subtly emotional—you’re going to end up caring about all these awkward teen weirdos, and, of course, very invested in who had the motive and the means to mastermind the Brownout. (Available Fri Sept 14, Netflix) ERIK HENRIKSEN

Blaze
Directed by Ethan Hawke, Blaze explores the legacy of country singer/songwriter Blaze Foley, who belonged to the same scene as Townes Van Zandt, but was murdered before many people got to know his name. There’s plenty of mythology surrounding Foley and his hillbilly charm—he was known for wearing duct tape on the tips of his cowboy boots—but Ben Dickey’s raw performance makes the focus the flawed, tender man behind the songs (Lucinda Williams once called Foley “a genius and a beautiful loser,” which pretty much nails it). The film’s best moments involve his relationship with actress Sybil Rosen (Alia Shawkat) and the time they spent living together in a treehouse in Georgia, but those get cut off due to frequent jumps to sepia-toned flashbacks. That nonlinear narrative also kind of makes sense, though, given the fact that Blaze’s history was lived by people who were often engulfed in a cloud of cigarette smoke and suffering from whiskey amnesia. It’s not the first time Hawke has made a film about a forgotten musician—his 2014 directorial debut Seymour: An Introduction retraced the life of classical pianist Seymour Bernstein. Blaze isn’t particularly remarkable, but the attention given to Foley’s love story and the toll of his addiction are quietly gripping. (Opens Fri Sept 21) CIARA DOLAN

BoJack Horseman: Season 5
While all you tantrum-throwing assholes were setting McDonalds on fire for packets of liquid salt in fealty to the diminished, sickly cynical shine of Rick and Morty, animation fans of a more sophisticated bent were indulging the dark sweetness of BoJack Horseman, a show that began as a satire of celebrity and has, over the course of four seasons, become a tightly plotted, painfully insightful, and emotionally draining examination of depression, addiction, and how to let yourself enjoy what brief rewards you earn in the struggle to be better than you are. Starring Will Arnett as a brown horse and Amy Sedaris as a pink cat. (Available Fri Sept 14, Netflix) BOBBY ROBERTS

Crazy Rich Asians
Crazy Rich Asians is the first major American motion picture starring a predominantly Asian cast since The Joy Luck Club came out in 1993.

Now let’s talk about the next most important thing: Crazy Rich Asians is romantic comedy gold that should be celebrated not only for its cast but also for its perfect execution of light, breezy escapism.

Fags In The Fast Lane
The Portland premiere of Josh Collins’ campy, unapologetically gay-as-fuck Australian exploitation entry into the superhero canon, centered on the adventures of Beau Cockslinger and his Mary Men. There is also a magic gold dildo. (Fri Sept 14, Clinton Street Theater)

Fahrenheit 11/9
Michel Moore’s latest, about the 2016 election and the presidency of Donald Trump (who lost the popular vote by 2,864,974 votes). Whether it’ll be as sharp as Moore’s great stuff (2002’s Bowling for Columbine) or as self-indulgent as his more recent stuff (2016’s Michael Moore in TrumpLand) is TBD, as it wasn’t screened for critics. (Opens Fri Sept 21)

Fast Break
In 1978, Director Don Zavin gave unto thirsty Blazermaniacs a rambly, contemplative, slightly stoned gift of a documentary, Fast Break. There is no real narrative arc, the closest thing to a through-line basically gets abandoned halfway through, and there’s nothing particularly insightful or profound to be gleaned from following the team through their quiet Pacific Northwest adventures following their shock-the-world championship run in 1977. Which is fine, because Fast Break works best as a time-travel device anyway, a shaggy portal back to a Portland that will never exist again, where Maurice Lucas is chilling at the pool, Dave Twardzik is teaching kids the fundamentals, and big bike-riding Bill Walton is doing that charmingly infuriating Bill Walton thing where gallons of melodic syllables rain down over his jutting chin and evaporate into senselessness right around his collarbone. Walton would break his foot in '78 and flee Portland a year later, the team's chemistry slowly soured, and never another Finals would be won, but Fast Break perfectly captures the weirdly serene scenes before it all fell down.

Halloween (1978)
In the final trailer for David Gordon-Green's upcoming sequel to this film, the voice of Jamie Lee Curtis dramatically intones through whispery reverb that "40 years ago, on Halloween night, Michael Myers murdered three people." The statement comes off as oddly comical now, after four decades under the Shape's hulking shadow, with thousands of bodies strewn across the sordid history of a genre he elevated to prominence—three seems like child's play. Hell, Child's Play racked up a bigger body count. But watching John Carpenter's breakout film (the most profitable indie ever made for a very long time), the weight of those three deaths feels heavy indeed. Halloween is considered the father of the slasher, but Carpenter's film maintains its power because it doesn't really slashthat much. It simmers, and stares, and slowly glides into menacing situations and abandons you there until the shadow of Michael Myers swallows you right up. That sort of thing seriously fucked people up in 1978. It still works pretty damned well in 2018. (Sat Sept 22, Hollywood Theatre, followed by a Q&A with star P.J. Soles) BOBBY ROBERTS

The Land of Steady Habits
The latest from writer/director Nicole Holofcener (Lovely and Amazing, Enough Said) features a quietly amazing cast (Edie Falco, Connie Britton, Ben Mendelsohn) clumsily hurting and healing each other through a series of mundane-yet-emotionally powerful events. Holofcener is not yet a genre unto herself, but she should be soon. (Available Fri Sept 14, Netflix)

Life Itself
Dan Fogelman, the creator and showrunner of the tear-jerking machine that is NBC’s This is Us writes and directs this romantic epic starring Oscar Isaac, Olivia Wilde, Mandy Patinkin, Annette Bening and Antonio Banderas and oh man you’re crying already, aren’t you. God this guy is good. (Opens Fri Sept 21)

Lizzie
In a revealing interview with the Huffington Post, Chloë Sevigny said she’d hoped Lizzie—the new film in which she portrays Lizzie Borden, who was accused of murdering her father and stepmother with an ax in 1892 Massachusetts—would be a “rousing, smash-the-patriarchy piece,” and admitted that director Craig William Macneill’s final product isn’t what she’d imagined. Building off the wealthy family’s battle over inheritances and the rumor that Borden killed her parents after they discovered her relationship with the Irish maid Brigid (Kristen Stewart), Lizzie tries to find the seemingly impossible balance between family drama, murder mystery, and queer romance. Though it’s a compelling idea, it doesn’t work—the forbidden love story isn’t fleshed out enough for that motive to be believable. And in 2018, when depictions of queer romance are just starting to get mainstream attention with films like Moonlight and Call Me by Your Name, I’m not sure this hypothetical lesbian link to a grisly murder is really necessary. It’s valuable to reexamine history with the knowledge that women weren’t always granted the opportunity to tell their own stories, but Lizzie is more like a rogue spitballing session that reframes Borden’s infamous crime as a justifiable rebellion against injustice.

Love, Gilda
By anyone’s standards, Gilda Radner is comedy royalty. She was a member of Toronto’s Second City troupe that included fellow future legends like Joe Flaherty and John Candy, the first woman cast to National Lampoon Radio Hour, and the first person hired to be part of Saturday Night Live’s inaugural season. In other words, she’s the ideal candidate for a documentary about her accomplishments and impact on the comedy world. Love, Gilda is not that film. The well-intentioned effort by director Lisa D’Apolito strives to highlight Radner’s fearless energy but gets stuck on her precipitous rise to fame and her many famous lovers, layering it all with a quaint rosy glow. It’s only when the film focuses in on the last part of its subject’s life—as she dealt with multiple bouts with cancer—that it finds depth. (Opens Fri Sept 21) ROBERT HAM

Re-Run Theater: Battlestar Galactica
40 years ago, an enterprising television producer named Glen A. Larson saw Star Wars and said "I think this could be done as a Mormon allegory on television! I know, I'll write a meanderingly weird ripoff and sell it to ABC. I'll get the old cowboy who sells dog food and make him the star." Thus, Battlestar Galactica was born, a budget-busting one-year wonder starring Lorne Greene that stole Star Wars's visual effects mastermind to realize space battles were eye-meltingly awesome on '70s-era television sets (and still kinda impressive now). But the pilot episode Re-run Theater is screening tonight? Eeeehhhh... Once the Cylon apocalypse concludes in the first third, Galactica keeps asking "so what the hell do we do now" and arriving at increasingly stupid answers like "lets play with this annoying robot dog" and "lets visit a casino planet," and "What if casino planet is really run by insect monsters?" But then the Death Star casino planet explodes, and the movie ends, and all the preceding bullshit just kinda slides off, leaving not much more than faintly warm memories of pew-pew and boom-boom. And for a lot of little kids in the late '70s—that was apparently enough. But don't get it twisted: for as much cheesy fun as this might be (and mileage definitely varies) the 2003 reboot is better in every conceivable way. (Wed Sept 26, Hollywood Theatre) BOBBY ROBERTS

Repressed Cinema: Psychotronic After School Special
A carefully curated collection of really fucking weird shit, including a “documentary” about a dystopian future hosted by Orson Welles, an anti-alcohol ’80s film titled The Glug, and a 1975 educational film about the pleasures and dangers of processed food in America. (Tues Sept 18, Hollywood Theatre) BOBBY ROBERTS

Searching
What makes Searching—a mystery that takes place predominantly on a series of computer desktops—more than a gimmick is how well it captures the limited but instantly recognizable emotional language of computer use: the typed but unsent message, the search query that’s loaded with dread, the shortened email subject line that belies bad news. All of these are effectively deployed in service of a fairly conventional missing-person story, enabling the film’s limited field of view to capture the feelings of familial isolation, technological confusion, and desire for connection. (Now playing) BEN COLEMAN

A Simple Favor

Stephen King Double Feature
It's Stephen King's 71st birthday—and the Hollywood is celebrating with a 35mm double feature of two movies penned by the horror and literary mastermind! First up is 1982's pulpy anthology flick Creepshow, directed by Night of the Living Dead's George Romero; second is 1985's Cat's Eye, directed by Lewis Teague and featuring James Woods, Drew Barrymore, and, of course, an evil troll. Hail to the King, baby. (Fri Sept 21, Hollywood Theatre) ERIK HENRIKSEN

Supergirl
God, I want to like 1984's Supergirl. And Supergirl really, really wants you to like it, too. That goodwill is present in the winsome performance of Helen Slater as Kara Zor-El, and it's definitely there in the striking melodies of all-time-great composer Jerry Goldsmith. But goodwill is not enough to make up for Jeannot Zwarc's steamrolled-flat direction, Faye Dunaway's embarrassing turn as the villain, and a story by David Odell that (successfully) does its damndest to undermine everything mythic and majestic about Kara and her world, pouring sugar in Supergirl's empathy engine until she's left stranded in a soupy stew of failed gags and short-circuited drama. The real saboteurs? The film's producers, sworn enemies of goodwill Alexander and Ilya Salkind, whose petty, wrongheaded decision-making process hamstrung Superman II in 1981, kneecapped Superman III in 1983, and unfortunately turfed almost all of Clark's big-screen potential a mere six years after Superman: The Movie, and unfairly damaged Kara's for decades with this disappointing botch-job of a cash-in. There are some joys to be found in Supergirl but too many of them depend on a forgiving audience willing to do the sort of heavy lifting that would leave even the Girl of Steel winded. (Sat Sept 15, Hollywood Theatre) BOBBY ROBERTS

Swinging Roman Cinema: Il Boom
Dolce Vita Confidential author Shawn Levy continues his series showcasing the best of Italian cinema with a screening of 1963’s Il Boom, a dark comedy about Italy’s economic revival, directed by Vittoria De Sica. (Wed Sept 26, Hollywood Theatre)

We the Animals
We the Animals invites its audience into the exclusive, powerful magic that comes with belonging to a group of three young brothers, running wild in a rural town and trying to make sense of their parents’ abusive relationship. Though similar in theme and feel to 2017’s The Florida Project, We the Animals focuses on the internal view of the youngest brother, Jonah (Evan Rosado). In Justin Torres’ novel, on which the film is based, the actions Jonah undertakes and the repercussions he faces are serious—but director Jeremiah Zagar’s film is more concerned with showing the beauty of youth with all the boring parts cut out.

          TBA: Legendary Isn't Shown the Love it Deserves      Cache   Translate Page

Santi Elijah Holley

It wouldn’t be TBA without late-night dance parties. After spending hours taking in such tragicomic shows as Kaneza Schaal’s JACK &, or the hyper-intimate modern dance performance of Milka Djordjevich’s ANTHEM, it can be restorative to step out onto the dance floor and shake off any built-up tension, pressed against other sweaty bodies. By all means, Legendary should’ve been a packed house, but by having the unfortunate time slot of 10pm on Sunday night, it didn’t bring in the heat normally found at Legendary parties.

tba_legendary_1.jpg
Santi Elijah Holley

Curated by Portland-based artist, lecturer, and radical queer theologian bart fitzgerald, Legendary is a long-running, fashion-forward dance party for LGBTQ people of color in Portland, celebrating black and brown sexual expression. With a crew of four all-black DJs, Deena Bee started off the night spinning hits from Cardi B, Anderson.Paak, Beyonce, Camila Cabello, and others, while the film New Jack City screened overhead. (“The blackest film ever,” fitzgerald commented.) BNICK followed, with deeper cuts by French Montana, Travis Porter, and Fabolous, while Issa Rae’s Insecure played on the screen above.

After midnight, Valan Primus took over the decks with throwbacks like Crystal Waters’s “100% Pure Love,” “Show Me Love” by Robin S, and (continuing the “love” theme) Haddaway’s “What is Love.” There were never more than 20-30 people on the dance floor at a time and—for a party celebrating black and brown queer bodies—there were a conspicuously high number of white folks. When headlining, DJ Dubblife closed out the night with tracks by Yung Gravy, Playboi Carti, and Krippy Kush. Most people had already closed their bar tabs and begun to head home to get ready for their workweek.

Typically held in smaller and more intimate venues, the PICA warehouse was also a much larger space than other Legendary parties, further lending the night a feeling of wasted potential, and a sense of what could’ve been, had fitzgerald been given a more suitable night.

          JavaScript中Array方法的正确打开方式      Cache   Translate Page      

在过去的几个月,我发现我的拉取请求中存在四个完全相同的 JavaScript 错误。于是我写了这篇文章,总结了如何在 JavaScript 中正确使用地使用 Array 的方法!

用 Array.includes 代替 Array.indexOf

“如果你要在数组中查找元素,请使用 Array.indexOf”。我记得在学习 JavaScript 的时候,在教材中读到这样的一句话。毫无疑问,这句话是真的!

MDN 文档写道,Array.indexOf 将“返回第一次出现给定元素的索引”。因此,如果我们稍后要在代码中使用这个返回的索引,那么使用 Array.indexOf 找到索引就对了。

但是,如果我们只想知道数组是否包含某个值,该怎么办?这似乎是一个是与否的问题,或者说是一个布尔值问题。对于这种情况,我建议使用返回布尔值的 Array.includes。

'use strict';  
const characters = [  
  'ironman',  
  'black_widow',  
  'hulk',  
  'captain_america',  
  'hulk',  
  'thor',  
];  
console.log(characters.indexOf('hulk'));  
// 2  
console.log(characters.indexOf('batman'));  
// -1  
console.log(characters.includes('hulk'));  
// true  
console.log(characters.includes('batman'));  
// false  
使用 Array.find 而不是 Array.filter 

Array.filter 是一个非常有用的方法。它接受一个回调函数作为参数,基于一个包含所有元素的数组创建出一个新的数组。正如它的名字一样,我们使用这个方法来过滤元素,获得更短的数组。

但是,如果回调函数只能返回一个元素,那么我就不推荐使用这个方法,例如使用回调函数来过滤唯一 ID。在这种情况下,Array.filter 将返回一个只包含一个元素的新数组。我们的意图可能是通过查找特定的 ID 找到数组中包含的唯一值。

我们来看看这个方法的性能。要返回与回调函数匹配的所有元素,Array.filter 必须遍历整个数组。此外,我们假设有数百个元素可以满足回调参数,那么过滤后的数组会非常大。

为了避免这种情况,我建议使用 Array.find。它需要一个像 Array.filter 一样的回调函数作为参数,并返回满足回调函数的第一个元素的值。此外,只要找到第一个满足回调函数的元素,Array.find 就会停止,无需遍历整个数组。通过 Array.find 来查找元素,我们可以更好地理解我们的意图。

'use strict';  
const characters = [  
  { id: 1, name: 'ironman' },  
  { id: 2, name: 'black_widow' },  
  { id: 3, name: 'captain_america' },  
  { id: 4, name: 'captain_america' },  
];  
function getCharacter(name) {  
  return character => character.name === name;  
}  
console.log(characters.filter(getCharacter('captain_america')));  
// [  
//   { id: 3, name: 'captain_america' },  
//   { id: 4, name: 'captain_america' },  
// ]  
console.log(characters.find(getCharacter('captain_america')));  
// { id: 3, name: 'captain_america' } 

用 Array.some 代替 Array.find

我承认这个错误我犯了很多次。然后,一位善良的朋友告诉我,最好可以先参考 MDN 文档。这与上面的 Array.indexOf/Array.includes 非常相似。

在前面的例子中,我们看到 Array.find 需要一个回调函数作为参数,并返回一个元素。如果我们想要知道数组是否包含某个值,Array.find 是最好的解决方案吗?可能不是,因为它返回的是一个元素值,而不是一个布尔值。

对于这种情况,我建议使用 Array.some,它返回所需的布尔值。另外,从语义上看,Array.some 表示我们只想知道某个元素是否存在,而不需要得到这个元素。

'use strict';  
const characters = [  
  { id: 1, name: 'ironman', env: 'marvel' },  
  { id: 2, name: 'black_widow', env: 'marvel' },  
  { id: 3, name: 'wonder_woman', env: 'dc_comics' },  
];  
function hasCharacterFrom(env) {  
  return character => character.env === env;  
}  
console.log(characters.find(hasCharacterFrom('marvel')));  
// { id: 1, name: 'ironman', env: 'marvel' }  
console.log(characters.some(hasCharacterFrom('marvel')));  
// true 

使用 Array.reduce 而不是链接 Array.filter 和 Array.map

让我们面对现实吧,Array.reduce 不容易理解。事实确实如此!但是,如果我们使用 Array.filter 和 Array.map 的组合,感觉缺少了什么,对吧?

我的意思是,我们遍历了两次数组。第一次过滤数组并创建一个较短的数组,第二次又基于 Array.filter 获得数组创建一个包含新值的数组。为了获得我们想要的新数组,我们使用了两个 Array 方法。每个方法都有自己的回调函数和一个用不到的数组——由 Array.filter 创建的那个数组。

为了避免这种性能损耗,我的建议是使用 Array.reduce。结果是一样的,代码却更简单! 我们可以使用 Array.reduce 进行过滤,并将目标元素添加到累加器中。累加器可以是递增的数字、要填充的对象、要连接的字符串或数组。

在我们的例子中,因为之前使用了 Array.map,所以我建议使用 Array.reduce 将满足条件的数组元素加入到累加器中。在下面的示例中,根据 env 值的具体情况,我们将它添加到累加器中或保持累加器不变。

'use strict';  
const characters = [  
  { name: 'ironman', env: 'marvel' },  
  { name: 'black_widow', env: 'marvel' },  
  { name: 'wonder_woman', env: 'dc_comics' },  
];  
console.log(  
  characters  
    .filter(character => character.env === 'marvel')  
    .map(character => Object.assign({}, character, { alsoSeenIn: ['Avengers'] }))  
);  
// [  
//   { name: 'ironman', env: 'marvel', alsoSeenIn: ['Avengers'] },  
//   { name: 'black_widow', env: 'marvel', alsoSeenIn: ['Avengers'] }  
// ]  
console.log(  
  characters  
    .reduce((acc, character) => {  
      return character.env === 'marvel'  
        ? acc.concat(Object.assign({}, character, { alsoSeenIn: ['Avengers'] }))  
        : acc;  
    }, [])  
)  
// [  
//   { name: 'ironman', env: 'marvel', alsoSeenIn: ['Avengers'] },  
//   { name: 'black_widow', env: 'marvel', alsoSeenIn: ['Avengers'] }  // ]

          W. Kamau Bell’s Insightful Sociopolitical Commentary Brings the House Down      Cache   Translate Page      
The extremely prolific comedian, writer, podcast host and TV star W. Kamau Bell educates as he entertains and audiences are better for it. by Jenni Moore

Time and time again, W. Kamau Bell’s traveling docuseries, United Shades of America, gives me a renewed sense of how not to be an ignorant piece of shit. Whether the topic is the colonization of Hawaii or the realities of what actually goes down at the US-Mexico border, I become better informed with each episode. Bell has mastered the art of casually interviewing a diverse range of people—he listens to understand—and he explains in his book that he’s “built a career on asking ‘dumb questions.’”

{{image:1, align:right, width:250}}

Bell’s 2017 memoir, The Awkward Thoughts of W. Kamau Bell: Tales of a 6’4’’, African American, Heterosexual, Cisgender, Left-Leaning, Asthmatic, Black and Proud Blerd, Mama’s Boy, Dad, and Stand-Up Comedian is geared toward the fanbase he gained from a prolific career as a sociopolitical stand-up comic, podcast host, and TV star. In Awkward Thoughts, Bell tries to play it off like he’s an uncool person by nature, but at this point in his career, it’s obvious Bell is something much cooler than cool: He is a good person. Perhaps that’s why he’s able to joke about things like slavery and lynching in a tasteful-but-still-funny manner. Thirty pages in, I had already LOL’d three times in a quiet downtown coffee shop.

Were there also poignant arguments and insights about the world we live in as it has evolved in regards to race relations? Of course! And I love those insights—they’re similar to those Bell makes in United Shades of America. I enjoy listening to Bell explain the lack of options for Black kids trying to identify with superheroes, why “Black” absolutely must be capitalized, growing up feeling like an outsider in Black circles, why he thinks the children’s program Doc McStuffins is one of the best TV shows of all time, and why he’s surprisingly tolerant of Southern white folk who ask if they can touch his hair (“Outside of the South, it’s ‘No, you need to go make some Black friends.’”) Bell’s expression of Blackness is both familiar and relatable, and his parenting stories about raising his daughter are seriously hilarious.

Though I certainly enjoyed Awkward Thoughts, somewhere in the middle I wondered if listening to the audio book would have been the better choice. After all, Bell has three successful podcasts/radio shows where he also tackles an array of topics: Denzel Washington Is the Greatest Actor of All Time Period, Politically Re-Active, and Kamau Right Now! Plus, his recent Netflix special Private School Negro is maybe even funnier than the show I caught at the Aladdin back in 2016. It was a couple weeks before the election, and after his set, Bell announced he wanted to meet fans and take some pics while wearing a T-shirt that read, “Bad Hombre Raised by a Nasty Woman.”

Bell has family in Portland, and it’s a city he’s familiar with. He even filmed an episode of United Shades here—exploring the problematic history behind our highly gentrified city. W. Kamau Bell is good people, and he still knows how to keep it real.

Австралийският художник Марк Найт от в. “Хералд Сън” (таблоид – жълто издание, собственост на Рупърт Мърдок) нарисува карикатура на тенисистката Серина Уилиямс. Карикатурата има добра идея – че спортистката се държи като дете на корта и е свързана със скандала около отнемането на точка и гейм в полза на противничката ѝ на финала на US Open – щатското открито първенство по тенис.

В българския Фейсбук карикатурата му бе споделена стотици пъти и коментарите бяха подигравателни по адрес на Уилиямс и похвални по адрес на художника.

По света реакцията беше различна – вестници от сорта на “Вашингтон пост“, хора като писателката Дж. K. Ролинг (книгите за Хари Потър), както и редица други известни личности отбелязаха, че представянето на Серина Уилиямс с клиширания образ на чернокожите от епохата на Джим Кроу е форма на расизъм.  Вестникът – типично за жълто издание – реши да демонстрира, че не се интересува от реакцията на “някакви интелектуалци”, както биха ги нарекли в български еквивалент на “Хералд Сън” и… публикува не само тази карикатура, но и други, за да покаже, че се подиграват на всякакви хора.

Изглежда, че редакторите не са разбрали както това, което им казват от цял свят, така и защо карикатурата е расистка. Т.е., в Австралия – също както и в България – има дебелокожи и безчувствени хора.

Опитах се на Фейсбук-стената на един наш художник-карикатурист да обясня защо карикатурата е приемана като расистка, но се оказа, че е много трудно да се докаже на нашенци защо карикатура, която на тях им харесва, е расистка. Понеже разговорът там зацикли (както се случва обикновено във Фейсбук), предпочитам да напиша тук онова, което е важно по темата.

Ние с вас, уважаеми хора, не знаем какво е робство. Истинско робство, а не измисленото турско – робство, в което хората са собственост на господарите си, имат си цена, а убийството им не е престъпление. Ние не знаем какво ще рече човек с друг цвят на кожата да не може да ползва тоалетните за “бели”. Не знам какво е да не може да седи в предната част на автобуса, която е запазена само “за бели”. Или да не може да пие вода от чешмата в парка, защото и на нея пише “само за бели”.

Нашенци нямат такъв опит, това е и една от причините да не разбират какво толкова расистко има в карикатурата. Но не само нямат опит, а и отказват да се вслушат с хората с такъв опит (и не, нямам себе си предвид – живота в САЩ сам по себе си не е достатъчен, за да може човек да разбере расизма).

Тук не се спирам върху мача между Уилиямс и Наоми Осака (която и спечели Откритото първенство на САЩ с блестяща игра), но не мога да не се въздържа да споделя, че повече харесах играта на г-ца Осака, която бе на висота през целия турнир, а специално срещу Уилиямс беше в много добра форма и успя да покаже, че не случайно е шампион!

По-важното от резултата от играта е, че една карикатура се приема у нас като нормална, докато много хора и организации по цял свят я посочват като пример за расизъм. Освен посочените по-горе хора и медии, с критика реагираха и от Националната асоциация на чернокожите журналисти на САЩ, доц.  Ребека Уанзо от университета “Вашингтон” в Сейнт Луис, която отбеляза в статия в CNN: “Марк Найт е участник в една дълга традиция на черните стереотипи или това, което често наричам ‘традиция на визуалния империализъм’.” Люк Дарби написа в GQ: “Tова не обяснява защо карикатурата не прилича изобщо на Серина Уилиямс. Това не е изобразяване на Доналд Тръмп с по-малки ръце или с още по-присвити устни, с по-голяма коса и т.н. Тези рисунки веднага се разпознават като карикатура на Тръмп. Уилиямс, изобразена от Найт, се представя като карикатура на Уилиямс, докато всъщност е нескопосана карикатура на подчертани черти на чернокожите”.

И още много, много други анализи и коментари има по темата – все в този дух, все от сериозни хора.

Нормалното в такива случаи би било, нашенци да се замислят: “А, бе, я да видя защо толкова много хора говорят по света, че карикатурата е расистка, а пък аз си мисля, че не е.”
Това би било нормалното, но ние отдавна сме доказали, че не правим нищо “като хората”, а винаги искаме да е нещо различно… и обикновено – неработещо.
Дори да не искат (не могат?) да се замислят, ти би трябвало да си кажат нещо от сорта: “Расизъм ли е или сатира, когато някой бива нарисуван по такъв начин, че да се преувеличават черти на физиката, които са използвани като клишета за цяла раса”. Отговор: расизъм е. Нямаше да е расизъм, ако карикатурата просто показваше, иронизираше или осмиваше поведението на Уилиямс.

В България също има примери за расизъм (“А-у, как може да говориш така!?” – ще каже Бай Ганьо). Използването на обидни думи по адрес на една или друга част от обществото, е форма на расизъм. Пускането в обръщение на клишета за някого, като той/тя бива представен с някакво качество, което се подхвърля ехидно като присъщо на етническа или религиозна група, е също форма на расизъм.

А това, че жълто австралийско издание защитава расистката карикатура, като се крие под лозунга, че не иска да бъде “политически коректно”, е нормално. В България има редица медии, които са жълти и от които никой здравомислещ човек не очаква да бъдат цивилизовани, да спазват елементарните правила на журналистическа етика и т.н., и др.п. Просто човек не ги чете и не ги популяризира чрез социалните мрежи. Явно това не важи за чуждите медии – те се приемат задължително като обективни, точни, честни и почтени…

Тревожен е непукизмът, с който нашенци отхвърлят вековния опит на милиони  хора – опит, натрупан не само по време на робството в САЩ, но и в десетилетията борба след това – срещу сегрегацията, срещу насилието върху чернокожото население, срещу подозрителността, неразбирането…
Нашенци нямат нужда от опит или акъл, защото те се мислят не просто за по-знаещи по темата, а направо за хора, които на свой ред могат да дават съвети. И именно това чувство на превъзходство е знак за липсата на желание у нашенеца да се пребори с расизма на домашна почва.  Това чувство плюс убедеността, че няма смисъл да се бори с нещо, което – според него, разбира се! – не съществува. Или е дело на “толерантни нещастници”, които се държат “мултикултурно” и “възпитано”, направо “префърцунено”.

On Wednesday, the Herald Sun provided its response to critics of the cartoon by doubling down. The newspaper republished Knight’s Serena Williams image as part of a front-page montage of Knight caricatures — including of President Trump — with the headline “WELCOME TO PC WORLD” and the text: “If the self-appointed censors of Mark Knight get their way on his Serena Williams cartoon, our new politically correct life will be very dull indeed.” The cover includes the cheeky label “Satire Free Zone.”

          ¿Quién es Fernando Haddad, el sustituto de Lula?      Cache   Translate Page      
El filósofo Fernando Haddad es el sustituto del expresidente Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva en la fórmula presidencial del Partido de los Trabajadores (PT), y es también la nueva cara que el exmandatario quiere darle a la agrupación que gobernó Brasil por 13 años. Será su foto la que aparecerá en las urnas el próximo 7 de octubre, cuando los brasileños votarán en una elección que promete tener dos vueltas. Carismático y popular entre jóvenes de izquierda, el catedrático de 55 años, viene siendo una de las principales opciones de renovación en el juego de naipes que Lula baraja desde que los fundadores y principales líderes del PT fueron siendo enjuiciados y encarcelados por crímenes de corrupción. Haddad acaba de asumir la responsabilidad de sustituir al principal líder de la izquierda brasileña, preso desde abril por corrupción pasiva y blanqueo de fondos, e impedido de disputar la elección por la Corte Electoral, tras agotar todos los trámites en busca de su libertad y por su candidatura. Conocido en São Paulo, donde fue alcalde (2013-17), Haddad tiene el reto de hacerse conocido por el país en menos de un mes, y de heredar los votos de Lula, que era el favorito en las encuestas con un 39% hasta antes de su impugnación, y pese a su prisión, que le restó, pero no acabó con su popularidad. Pese a una imagen bastante positiva, Haddad también enfrenta acusaciones. El empresario Ricardo Pessoa confesó que su constructora, UTC, pagó una deuda de unos 540 mil euros de su campaña a la alcaldía, a cambio de contratos públicos. Haddad, considerado intachable hasta esa acusación, dice que se trata de una «persecución política» para perjudicarla en la disputa presidencial. Grandes posibilidades Los sondeos apuntan que Haddad viene creciendo desde que comenzó la campaña en la televisión, hace diez días, como el vicepresidente defensor de Lula, con entre un 8% y 9%, e mpatando en el tercer lugar, con nombres nacionalmente conocidos, como la ambientalista Marina Silva y el socialdemócrata, Geraldo Alckmin, que también tratan de llegar a la segunda vuelta. Antes de ser confirmado, tenía entre el 3% y el 4%. Su rápida ascensión llevó a los especialistas en encuestas a apostar que Haddad tiene grandes posibilidades de llegar a la segunda vuelta para enfrentar al favorito, el controvertido ultraderechista Jair Bolsonaro, que subió de 20 al 26%, después de ser apuñalado durante un comicio, la semana pasada. Pero las encuestas también muestran que Haddad es el único de los candidatos que puede perder frente a Bolsonaro, por el fuerte rechazo al PT, desgastado con los escándalos que llevaron a la Lavacoches, la mayor operación anticorrupción de la historia brasileña, que implicó a políticos de todos los partidos, pero especialmente al grupo de Lula, que estaba en el poder. Haddad ya sufrió los efectos de ese rechazó, cuando perdió la reelección a la alcaldía de São Paulo, por el fuerte antipetismo en la ciudad, pese a haber sido un burgomaestre innovador y bien evaluado. El alcalde, que inauguró kilómetros de ciclovías y redujo los índices de muertes en el tráfico, perdió la reelección en primera vuelta, ante João Doria, un empresario de comunicación que se presentaba como un antiLula. Perdió frente a un novato en la política, por un 53% contra el 16%, una derrota que puede repetirse si llega a la segunda vuelta con Bolsonaro. Un buen gestor Descendiente de una familia de comerciantes libanesa, Haddad es abogado, maestro en economía y doctor en filosofía. Es casado desde los 25 años con la dentista Ana Estela Haddad con quien tiene dos hijos ya adultos. Intelectual de clase media paulista y catedrático de Ciencia Política en la prestigiosa Universidad de São Paulo (USP), Haddad es una figura totalmente opuesta a su padrino político, un obrero, de origen muy humilde, acostumbrado a mezclarse con la masa. Ya Haddad, busca popularidad nacional, tratando de acercarse a movimientos populares y los electores más pobres, que no lo conocen. En el nordeste, donde el petismo es más fuerte, los electores más humildes no se acostumbran todavía al apellido árabe del electo de Lula, y lo llaman Andrade, por no entender Haddad. El candidato petista fue ministro de Educación de Lula y de Dilma Rousseff entre 2005 y 2012. Durante su gestión creó algunos de los programas más celebrados de Lula, como las cuotas universitarias para negros y pobres, la creación de nuevas universidades públicas y otros proyectos como el «Universidad para Todos» que mejoraron los índices educacionales y sociales de Brasil. Según el Banco Mundial, al dejar el ministerio, Brasil era el país que más había avanzado en el aumento de escolaridad y la Organización para Cooperación de Desarrollo Económico (OCDE) calificó la evolución en educación básica como «impresionante». En una encuesta de Folha de São Paulo, Haddad también fue el ministro mejor evaluado por los brasileños durante los años del PT. Ese desempeño positivo llevó a Lula a escogerlo entre los nuevos nombres del partido, en un movimiento de renovación y de herederos, que no habían pasado por las urnas, lo que analistas y el propio Lula llamaban «postes», como la expresidenta Dilma Rousseff, capaces de elegirse con el simple apoyo del principal nombre del PT. Desde su celda, Lula ya ha mandado recado: «Lula es Haddad. Haddad es Lula», un lema que se repite en las propagandas del partido. La duda ahora es si será capaz de transferirle sus votos en primera y segunda vuelta en el poco tiempo que resta.

I’ve literally been waiting to get this for years! The Complete Edition came out in Japan in 2013! They teased they would release it in English then announced a date which was pushed back but finally it’s here and it’s GORGEOUS! Story time As a gay boy of the 90s, Sailor Moon 🌙 is iconic to me. I still remember the first time I saw her. It was 1995 or 1996 and I stayed home from school. At 8 am on Fox Kids, I caught this show and I was hooked. Here was a super hero who was clumsy and whiny and clearly not the smartest or strongest. But she still saved the day because she was kind and she cared for people. I related to her instantly. That kind of character wasn’t very prevalent in 90s western kids media. Even though I loved other cartoons, I related to ‘Serena’ (🐰). And most importantly, she got to do something that I had never seen and didn’t know I wanted: she saved the “Prince”. I was immediately hooked and looked for any and everything related to Sailor Moon! Stickers, I had them. Playing cards, yup! Knock off chinese action figures, I scoured the Chinese stores back home for them! Then something incredible happened. I remember they used to sell these comic books of the show. Not the manga but just literally screenshots with speech bubbles. It was there when I first discovered that Zoisite was a male character and that in the anime, he and Malachite (Kunzite) were a couple! 😳😍 This was the first time I was ever exposed to a gay couple in media. They were affectionate and I remember that scene of Malachite holding Zoisite as he died surrounded by cherry blossoms was so tragic and beautiful! It’s the one thing I love about the anime over the manga. Anyway, suffice it to say this show was so meaningful to me growing up! I watched the 90s anime, read the manga in many different incarnations, watched bootleg copies of the live action tv show that I downloaded from kazaa, and watched the new anime adaptation. All of them are special in their own way, and I can’t wait to read this new Eternal/Complete version! #SheIstheOne #SailorMoon #BishoujoSenshiSailorMoon #Usagi #Manga #GayIcon #FeministIcon #SailorMoonEternalEdition #NaokoTakeuchi #90scartoons #90skids

Access to applications, servers and network resources is the cornerstone of enterprise IT, which is all about enabling connectivity. Not every account should have full access to everything in an enterprise, however, which is where super user or privileged accounts come into play.
With a privileged account, a user has administrative access to enterprise resources, a capability that should be closely guarded. As fans of Marvel Comics know well, with great power comes great responsibility. Privileged access management (PAM) is a way to limit access to those critical assets and prevent data breaches.
PAM and identity and access management (IAM) are similar security technologies, but the difference between what the two protect is night and day: IAM gives general users access to front-end systems, while PAM gives admins and other privileged users access to back-end systems. Think of it this way: A front-end user might be able to change or add data in a database; a back-end user has access to the entire database, thus the need for greater security.
So how should an organization protect its privileged accounts? That's a question that Paul Lanzi, co-founder and COO at Remediant, tackled in a session at the Black Hat USA conference in August. Lanzi outlined five steps that organizations can take to secure privileged access, based on experience deploying PAM across over 500,000 endpoints.

1. Beware local accounts

Once a user gets administrative rights for a system, more often than not, the user will create a secondary or local account that still has full access but isn't properly identified in a directory system like Active Directory.
"Discovering all the local accounts is often the most surprising thing for security teams because they assume all the accounts listed in Active Directory are domain accounts," Lanzi said. "In fact, the way that Active Directory works, you can have local accounts, and that's often where little pockets of privileged access hide out."
Lesson: Monitor for local admin accounts.

2. Stay tuned

Administrative rights are always changing. Lanzi said that every one of the enterprises he has worked with has at some point done an Active Directory cleanup project. What typically happens, however, is even after a directory cleanup, there tends to be a reversion, with old accounts coming back.
"Over time, admins tend to accrete more and more privileged access, it never really goes away," Lanzi said.
Lesson: Continuously monitor privileged accounts.

3. Session recording is not a panacea

While continuous monitoring of privileged access is important, the flip side of that is that some organizations will have session recording for every action performed by a privileged account.
Few if any enterprises actually look at the privileged account session recordings. What ends up happening in Lanzi's experience is that the session recording feature will end up slowing down some types of operations.
Just like a home DVR (digital video recorder), he noted that no one really watches what they record with session recording. Hackers also generally can easily bypass session recording with different techniques.
Lesson: Session recording has marginal utility.

4. Focus on access, not credentials

There is a movement in IT toward using fewer passwords in favor of using additional forms of strong authentication.
As such, password vault solutions are of limited utility, as simple credentials are not the only way that access is being granted.
Lesson: Focus on access instead of just credentials, which are going to get compromised.

5. Watch for lateral movement

One of the most common things that attackers do when exploiting an organization is to exploit one set of credentials and then move laterally.
"Privileged access should be the bulwark against lateral movement in the enterprise," Lanzi said.
Lesson: Use PAM solutions to control account access and limit the risk of lateral movement.

          Robert Kirkman’s Skybound Entertainment To Adapt ‘Summoner’s War’      Cache   Translate Page      

Fan’s of ‘Summoner’s War’ have something incredible to look forward to as it has been revealed that Robert Kirkman of ‘The Walking Dead’ fame is planning on adapting the video game into multiple outlets through his Skybound Entertainment banner. The news comes while fans are still catching their breath after the Summoners’ War World Arena Championship Americas Cup! Kirkman is set to bring the game into the world of comics, an animated series, and potentially even more as well! Also joining in production will be Skybound North Entertainment CEO Catherine Winder (‘Angry Birds,’ ‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars.’) The entire idea came together at San Diego Comic-Con when the teams from Com2us and Skybound Entertainment met. You can check out Robert Kirkman talking about the project here:   As stated by the production team, the game is set in a fantasy universe which is ripe to have its stories told in a more extended format. The game itself is quite open-ended and has “over 1,000 unique characters” which can be used. It isn’t quite as series as ‘Lord of the Rings’ or ‘Game of Thrones’ and will be a more lighthearted fantasy that can be enjoyed. It hasn’t been made […]

          La logica del business contro la logica della politica      Cache   Translate Page

di Enrico Furia


Aristoteles_Logica_1570_Biblioteca_Huelva


 




  • Definizioni




La logica è il metodo del ragionamento corretto. Lo studio della logica si concentra sull’analisi degli argomenti. Un argomento è una sequenza di affermazioni (chiamate premesse), che porta ad affermazioni successive (chiamate conclusioni).




Un argomento è valido quando le sue conclusioni derivano dalle premesse. In altre parole: se un argomento è valido e le premesse sono vere, le conclusioni sono necessariamente vere; se un argomento è valido e le premesse sono false, le conclusioni sono false; se un argomento non è valido, il ragionamento (conclusione), qualora possibile, non ha senso, a prescindere dalla verità o meno delle premesse.




La politica è, nei fatti, quella cosa che ognuno di noi riesce a percepire come “governo” di un insieme di persone in un determinato territorio, che si sottomette a determinate leggi impositive per essere “amministrato” e che, per questa amministrazione paga dei tributi imposti.


Business è un termine inglese che sta ad indicare nella sua espressione etimologica busy-ness una “occupazione”, e si contrappone al termine busyless che contraddistingue “lo sfaccendato”.




  • Premesse




Per il ragionamento di questo lavoro utilizzeremo tre grandi teorie scientifiche correnti:




  • il determinismo;




  • la teoria dei giochi;




  • la teoria del caso.




Per motivi di spazio dobbiamo dare per scontata la conoscenza delle suddette teorie, e ci mettiamo sin d’ora a disposizione personale del lettore per definire più in dettaglio ogni eventuale ed ulteriore approfondimento.




  • La Teoria deterministica.




Il determinismo, che la politica segue (o pretende di seguire, perché così può affermare che ogni sua azione deriva da un calcolo razionale che indichi preventivamente dove si va a finire con ogni decisione politica), è una teoria che afferma che, a condizione di ceteris paribus [1] ogni relazione esistente tra la variabile indipendente ed una o più variabili dipendenti di una funzione è calcolabile, determinabile.




  • La Teoria dei giochi




La teoria dei giochi ha chiaramente spiegato (Teorema del dilemma del prigioniero) come il comportamento certamente razionale di un elemento della relazione, quando non è supportato dalla trasparenza del comportamento dell’altro (o degli altri) elementi della ralazione stessa, possa anche condurre al risultato più svantaggioso. Per questo ha identificato nella “collaborazione”, piuttosto che nella “competizione”, la condizione ideale per raggiungere il massimo risultato. Questa teoria ha inoltre identificato due caratteristiche essenziali che permettono di capire la “logica” (quindi il corretto ragionamento) delle azioni umane. Queste due caratteristiche sono state chiamate “gioco a somma zero” e “gioco a somma non zero”. E’ un tipico gioco a somma zero una lotteria, dove la somma vinta dai vincitori è esattamente persa dai perdenti. In una lotteria non si crea “nuova ricchezza”, bensì si ridistribuisce la ricchezza dai perdenti ai vincitori. E’ paragonabile ad una lotteria la speculazione di Borsa (nonché t utte le altre forme speculative), dove coloro che guadagnano nella compravendita delle azioni lo fanno a danno di altri azionisti che perdono. In questo gioco non si crea e non si distrugge ricchezza reale, ma la si trasferisce solamente.




  • La Teoria del caso.




La teoria del caso ha chiaramente evidenziato come il determinismo nel comportamento umano non sia assolutamente rilevabile, evidenziando solo degli elementi “strange attractors” (attrattori indefinibili), che condizionano e guidano naturalmente (quindi in modo vero) i comportamenti umani e naturali. Un esempio per illustrare in modo semplice il concetto sopra esposto: se ho in mano una pallina da ping pong e con essa scendo in fondo al mare, quando la lascio, la pallina salirà certamente in superficie (perché è più leggera dell’acqua); se riprendo la stessa pallina e mi alzo in volo sul mare, quando la lascio questa cadrà certamente sulla superficie del mare (perché è più pesante dell’aria). In entrambi i casi nessuno è in grado di quantificare il tempo ed il punto esatto della superficie del mare in cui la pallina andrà a finire, ma tutti convengono che questa terminerà la sua azione sulla superficie del mare.




  • La logica del business.




Chi fa qualcosa (business), per essere logico (quindi razionale), deve ottenere il massimo risultato (profitto), pur non conoscendo le decisioni che prenderà la controparte (dinamica non lineare). Abbiamo sopra descritto con la teoria dei giochi come il determinismo non possa dettare nessun coportamento unilaterale che, seppur razionale, possa portare al massimo risultato. Abbiamo inoltre definito come la Teoria del caso identifichi gli strange attractors, overossia quelle condizioni che determinano il risultato di un qualsiasi evento non determinabile. Riteniamo, quindi, di poter concludere che proporre un contratto in cui tutte le parti abbiano il loro tornaconto, il loro profitto (anche se in misura non uguale), è la condizione ideale per raggiungere il massimo risultato. Questo risultato, stando alla Teoria dei giochi si ottiene con la collaborazione, non con la competizione.

Il business, pertanto, può essere identificato in un gioco a somma non zero, dove bisogna sempre creare nuova ricchezza, altrimenti nessuno partecipa, o dove il perdente sarà “attratto” dalla voglia di rivincita, che può innescare una lunga catena di “voglie di rivincita”. Tipica espressione del business di questo secondo tipo è la truffa, o l’attività del tipo “Ho fatto un affare ai danni di …”.




  • La logica della politica.




Chi fa politica, per essere logico, deve sottrarre potere (ricchezza, libertà, rispetto, ect.) a qualcun altro per aumentare il proprio. E’ un tipico gioco a somma zero dove non si crea alcuna nuova ricchezza, ma si ridistribuisce solo quella già esistente (vedi lotteria, speculazione, etc.). Ma al contrario della lotteria, o della speculazione, dove tutte le parti accettano reciprocamente il gioco con le sue regole, la politica, per sottrarre potere, deve ricorrere all’imposizione, ormai identificata nelle sue tre forme di: punizione, remunerazione, condizionamento. Gli strumenti tipici di acquisizione del potere sono:




  • la guerra, come strumento di punizione;




  • la corruzione, come strumento di remunerazione;




  • la manipolazione del consenso, come strumento di condizionamento.






  • 1° Conclusione




Gli Israeliani ed i Palestinesi stanno “giocando” secondo la logica della politica, perché se decidessero di usare la logica di business non avrebbero tempo di fare a sassate, ma dovrebbero lavorare per creare nuova ricchezza reciproca (profitto), ognuno secondo le proprie capacità, e le proprie volontà.

Che cosa porta una popolazione così evoluta tecnicamente quale quella israeliana a giocare alla “lotteria” con la popolazione più povera del mondo (quella palestinese)? Probabilmente una forma di educazione perversa, che ha instillato in loro il concetto che il torto si ripaga col torto, la forza si respinge con la forza, la tecnologia prevarrà sempre, e così via…, e che il business si fa a danno degli altri, e non per generare nuova ricchezza, ma per aumentare solo la propria.

Gli Stati Uniti, la più potente ed affascinante potenza mondiale di business, sono caduti nella stessa perversione israeliana, e si fa guidare dalla logica politica piuttosto che da quella di business nei suoi rapporti internazionali. Lo scrivente è profondamente convinto che gli Americani ritengano di esprimere con il loro comportamento la più ferrea logica deterministica (razionalità), quando invece nulla è determinabile se non con la cooperazione, cioè il coinvolgimento delle controparti.

Un solo punto a loro favore: la politica che riescono ad esprimere Irakeni, Europei, Russi e Cinesi è ancora più becera di quella americana. Nessuno vuole sostituire la logica di business alla logica politica, perché per tutti è molto più comodo rubare che vivere di lavoro.




  • Obiezione




La politica è la scienza che si occupa dell’amministrazione della cosa pubblica, vale a dire della “proprietà indivisa” di una comunità sociale, per cui tutti devono sottomettersi alle sue decisioni.




  • 2° Conclusione




Se così fosse, quella scienza dovrebbe tendere all’efficienza, vale a dire al raggiungimento del risultato massimo (massimo beneficio). Per fare questo, la politica dovrebbe operare generando nuova ricchezza (gioco a somma non zero), non ridistribuendo la ricchezza esistente (gioco a somma zero) attraverso l’imposizione fiscale.


Così facendo la sua logica sarebbe identica a quella di business, la sola logica che riesce ad accumunare gli interessi di tutti, e a generare interesse ad ogni transazione.


In un mercato libero, in mancanza di interesse tra le parti, il business non apre nessuna transazione.

Pertanto non ci sembra fattibile che in politica una maggioranza debba imporre il suo volere ad una minoranza. Mentre ci sembra fattibile che una minoranza possa imporre un business ad una maggioranza.

          Why IVF patients need to make their own decisions      Cache   Translate Page      


One of the hardest things for IVF patients to do is to make decisions. When their IVF cycle fails, they are not sure whether they should use their own eggs; or donor eggs; or donor sperm; or surrogacy. It can be very confusing , and because patients are not medical experts , they want a doctor to make these decisions for them.
However, these decisions shouldn't be made by doctors , because it's such a personal choice , and will affect the rest of the patient's life. Yes, it's very easy for the doctor to tell the patient what to do, but the patient cannot abdicate this responsibility and allow the doctor to make these decisions.
The job of the doctor , as a medical professional, is to make sure that he offers all the choices to the patient , and makes sure that the patient does not make the wrong choice -  a choice based on incomplete or incorrect medical information . However, the truth is that   there are no right or wrong choices – whichever choice the patient makes is the right choice for her. Patients have to decide for themselves, and the job of the doctor is to be supportive and offer non-directive counseling, so they can do what they feel is right for them.
The reality is that it can be very hard to make some of these decisions. Because of the dramatic advances in reproductive medical technology, there is a dazzling variety of choices in front of the patient , and this can be very confusing. Patients are often paralysed because they don’t know how to select the right one. They can use donor eggs, donor sperm, donor embryos , or do surrogacy. There’s a wide choice of mix and match options, and patients are not sure what to do,
They expect the doctor to make this decision for them, because he is the medical expert, but often these are very personal preferences, and the doctor is not a mind reader. That's why it's the patient's responsibility to explore all the options, understand the medical facts , and then apply their own mind and decide , based on their personal preferences , what to do.
You have to use your head and you have to use your heart as well, because you need to live with the consequence of the decision. The reality is that the decision you make is right for you. There is no right or wrong decision. Every decision has pros and cons, you need to weigh this, you need to be systematic about it, and more importantly you need to have peace of mind that you've thought about it and made the decision which both your head and heart said was right for you.

          The Land of Steady Habits review - smart, sad Netflix tale of midlife crisis      Cache   Translate Page      

In Nicole Holofcener’s sixth feature, adapted from Ted Thompson’s 2014 novel, a man’s midlife crisis is rendered with tragicomic sincerity

The women of writer-director Nicole Holofcener’s films have often been described as “dysfunctional” or “complicated”, the most rote of the catchwords used to suggest a kind of tough-as-nails realism. They are women, frequently single, sharp-tongued and exasperating, who evoke Henrik Ibsen’s groundbreaking Nordic anti-heroines, Nora Helmer and Hedda Gabler and Helene Alving, and the comic neuroses of Woody Allen, of whom Holofcener has been called the female counterpart. Like some, but not all, of Allen’s women – I’m thinking of Judy Davis in Husbands and Wives, Mia Farrow in The Purple Rose of Cairo and, of course, Diane Keaton in Annie Hall – Holofcener’s protagonists are flawed, wry, introspective and modern. They’re easy to love on-screen, if less so to the people they’re on-screen with.

<span style="font-family: 'Georgia'">I believe that I may have actually interested my wife in this series (well, Billy Blue seems to have done the hard work ;), she likes his eyes). I may be going through this set a bit faster. We viewed an episode at lunch yesterday and today.<br /> <br /> <b><i>Best Man For the Job</i></b> (1.4) <br /> From IMDB: Buck unknowingly hires a group of Army deserters at the same time an Army patrol stops at High Chaparral documenting fights with the Apaches. When a troop takes high level Apache hostages, Cochise attacks returning the favor.<br /> <br /> Warren Stevens, Lane Bradford, Steven Raines<br /> <br /> Buck makes an impulsive hire and comes to regret the decision as it affects Blue. Blue, still seeking his Father's approval keeps trying to be noticed. The Army and the Indians keep having skirmishes that intrude on the peaceful life of the ranchers. Another strong episode that stays focused on the Cannon family and how the outside world brings trouble. Nice to see that Blue becomes the "Best Man For The Job" in his father's eyes.<br /> <br /> <b><i>A Quiet Day in Tucso</i></b>n (1.5)<br /> From IMDB: Blue needs new boots and the ranch needs supplies but cash is limited. Big John agrees to let Blue join Buck on a trip to town for supplies along with Manolito. However, the three lose their guns and the money on poker, drink, and women.<br /> <br /> Richard Devon, Vaughn Taylor, Ned Romero, John Milford<br /> <br /> The first comical episode that shows great cameraderie between Buck, Mano and Blue. Some of the comedy seems forced, but it does get better as the series progresses. Interesting to watch John try to figure out what has ticked off Victoria (and even more interesting that Buck provides the solution).</span>

          HENRY CAVILL OUT as SUPERMAN? TOM HIDDLESTON set to replace him?      Cache   Translate Page      
Is it a Bird? Is it a Plane? NO! It’s a muddled contract negotiation, gone wrong with DC, Warners and SUPERMAN!   Today, the Hollywood Reporter all but confirmed that HENRY CAVILL was OUT. Out as Superman, that is. His team have subsequently put a positive spin on things and Warner Bros, likewise, issued damage limitation statements. Doors still open. Relationship still valued. You know the sort of thing? He in NO WAY AT ALL asked for too much money to reprise a role in a franchise that they urgently need to reboot. ‘You were good in your time, Superman, but..’. The main rumour doing rounds is that Cavill was asked to cameo in the forthcoming SHAZAM! movie and that when he ummed and urred about contractual commitments and availability, schedule wise..Warners told him to do one, faster than a speeding bullet. The precise details of what went down have been hushed up with most sworn to secrecy. However, my insider sources tell me that: The meeting between Henry and Warners was going splendidly. At first. But things got heated. Literally. As money was mentioned, his X Ray eye /laser beam vision ignited.  The Office lot was burned, badly and several executives suffered shock. Cavill TRIED to make amends by blowing ice breath on all around him.  Things got worse not better, however: with a number of personnel frozen solid. He also froze himself. OUT of negotiations!  It is thought the studio already had a replacement in mind. His name sounded a bit like ‘TIM HUDDLESTON’? This new candidate is said to be just what the studio have been seeking. He can make Superman look more ‘grounded’. AND is happy to work in his underpants.  Is it too late to retrieve things? Cavill has been seen frantically flying round the globe in a bid to manipulate our axes and reverse both time and the breakdown in communications with Warners /DC. While he’s at it, he might just erase BATMAN V SUPERMAN from history, too. Coz that was when everything went super-tits up for his tenure as the Man of Steel /last son of Krypton/God of Thunder/web-slinger (hang on: suspect at least two of those titles are..taken by non superman types?).   On a serious note though. Every actor is of course, replaceable. Those that think otherwise..tend to get..replaced? History could repeat itself with Cavill /Superman. Funnily enough, he was himself, down to the last 2 candidates for the last Bond re-casting, losing, narrowly to Daniel Craig. And yes, he could ace the 007 role again when Daniel steps down. But for now? He NEEDS Superman. His is not quite as strong a negotiating position as say, Robert Downey Junior, without whom, there simply would be no Marvel Cinematic Universe. Cavill just does not have that KIND of star /acting /commercial power. YET. But he could have, and soon. IF he manages to retain the Superman role, for say 2-3 more years? BE the guy who transitions the current iteration INTO reboot, rather than becoming the catalyst FOR that change? Equally: DC/Warners would do well to retain Henry. Pay him SOME sort of bonus. NOT because JUSTICE LEAGUE or ANY of his Superman appearances have been record breaking commercial hits (if anything, the era has been a yuge business misfire; losing money /not making half as much as projected). But simply because HE is NOT what went ‘wrong’.   Indeed, MOST fans of the genre and casual cinema going wider audiences cite Cavill as among the BEST iterations, onscreen, of SUPERMAN. As good as the late, great Christopher Reeve, if not better? Certainly equal to/ more distinguished than Brandon Routh / Dean Cain. Henry not only makes you believe a man can fly but that he can kick serious arse in a fight and jump across buildings etc. I’d argue he is the definitive Superman? Captures the joy, idealism, authority, decency, conflict and potentially deadly yet thankfully benign, messianic strength and force of the ultimate hero. And he had at least one great film in the portfolio so maybe give him another go? MAN OF STEEL is a sublime movie; managing to fuse the philosophical ideals of the comic book lore to a visceral, immersive, action adventure aesthetic. And the leading man was critical to that; giving his all at a physical level whilst evolving and emoting onscreen and thereby capturing every facet of a beloved character. Director ZACK SNYDER gave us an original and exciting take on all the old story beats. Daily Planet, Lois Lane, Kent Farm, Krypton, Zod: all ‘there’ and packaged into a truly moving, rousing morality play. Crowned by a majestic score from Hans Zimmer; just managing to equal the joy of the John Williams counterpart. The ethos of the film was entirely compatible with the (then) prevailing Christopher Nolan Dark Knight Trilogy; taking the framework of reality and marrying that to the beloved beats of comic book fantasy. There was a respectable if unremarkable box office and that SHOULD have catalysed a simple SUPERMAN sequel. Before maybe dragging CHRISTIAN BALE’s BATMAN out of that Cafe in Florence (he could always go back?) for a perfectly logical progression / team up? But no. They HAD to get clever, catch up to Marvel and try to reach a fast billion; rushing into an ill conceived ‘shared universe’ with the (admittedly, also excellent but ill served) Affleck iteration of BATMAN. No time for EITHER character to breathe or develop. Cue disappointing returns that diminished, further, with a more innocent /charming / light but all too little, too late JUSTICE LEAGUE, its reputation spoiled before release by behind the scenes chaos and the dour darkness that had been BATMAN V SUPERMAN. That said? AT NO STAGE has anyone seemed to blame Henry Cavill. And it is indeed, therefore, now difficult to see why or how he could be replaced, in haste, without adequate re-definition of the whole ‘DC Extended Universe’. Whilst we (sadly) appear to have lost Ben Affleck […]

074) My Favorite Thing Is Monsters by Emil Ferris, finished August 29

Drawn entirely in ballpoint pens (Bic-style) with the occasional colored pencil and seemingly on notebook paper complete with blue lines and binderholes and metal coiling, this is supposed to be a sequence of notebooks by an elementary-school girl. She's a helluvanartist for her age, let me say.

This is multilayered comics on the level of Chris Ware or Duncan the Wonder Dog. Although it begs us to ask how autobiographical it is, I'll avoid that topic. There's enough without it. We have monster movies/magazines; we have childhood cruelty; we have mob violence; we have all kinds of sex; we have family dynamics; we have the Holocaust; we have a mysterious murder; we have questions of sexuality; we have human duality; we have fine art---

All these pieces click together nicely. It might be hard to imagine all those things coming together without becoming either maudlin or oppressive, but no: Ferris shows real skill in balancing all this stuff. It's a heavy read, but not at all unpleasant. The only awful thing about it is the likely wait we have in front of us before the story will continue.

075) The Customer Is Always Wrong by Mimi Pond, finished August 30

Another enormous comic book! This one is a much quicker read, but it's remarkable how much they have in common. This takes place in the late Seventies rather than the late Sixties, but Madge is about ten years older than Karen, so I suppose they're still contemporaries.

We're in a different American city now (Oakland rather than Chicago) but we still get to see much of the seedy underbelly---only now we're a bit more involved as our protagonist is an adult.

Madge is working at a cafe, saving her money so she can move to New York and pursue her dreams of being a cartoonist. Her boss is Lazlo (imagine Scott McCloud in a trilby), a well meaning would-be poet. Everyone is doing alcohol and/or coke and/or speed and/or "Persian" and/or mj and/or tobacco and/or heroin and/or methodone etc etc etc. It's not a life I'm interested in, but Pond's look is kind without being romantic and truthful without being vindictive.

Although it's born of her actual experiences, Pond's ficionalization is very satisfying as fiction. The story is well organized and structured. It's a great piece of writing and it works well as a novel.

076) Bandette: Stealers Keepers! by Paul Tobin and Colleen Coover, finished August 30

This picks up where volume one dropped off and provides a satisfying conclusion. There is a third volume, but it seems likely that it will take a new direction. I hope so as this volume, while wonderful, couldn't match the bright delight of newness we encountered in volume one.

All I really really want to do now is show my kids Charade....

077) You're All Just Jealous of My Jetpack by Tom Gauld, finished September 6
078) Baking With Kafka by Tom Gauld, finished September 7
079) Mooncop by Tom Gauld, finished September 7
080) Goliath by Tom Gauld, finished September 7


The first two volumes are collections of his short comics, mostly originally published in the Guardian as part of his literary series. They're good. They have the heightened starkness of Jason and the deadpan intelligence of Edward Gorey.

The latter two are booklength narratives that excel in quiet. Silence is one of the great powers of comics, and Gauld has almost weaponized it. These odes to loneliness, to being an outsider, to calm consideration---they're peaceful even when they are wrought.

I'm fond of his work.

081) Educated by Tara Westover, finished September 12

I can't think of a "Mormon book" that's made this big of a splash. Maybe ever. Amazon's top recommendation? President Obama gave it a recommendation? That never happened to Scholar of Moab.... So I suppose I was in some sense obliged to pick it up. But if Lynsey hadn't read it as part of an online book club, I would have just kept waiting for it to show up in a Little Free Library.

I think my favorite aspect of the book is how Westover made transparent her efforts to be accurate in writing the story of her childhood onward. Footnotes that lay out the variances in different character's memories give the book an honest sheen that most memoirs simply do not have for me.

One of my instinctive reactions is similar to how I reacted to Elna Baker's memoir: I'm frustrated by how a character who is growing seems to have no access to intelligent faithful Mormons in their moments of need. At BYU (and in Manhattan) there are numerous concourses of such people, yet they're just not there. In Baker's case, she seemed to avoid Mormons when she was shaky; Westover, on the other hand, having had such a "conservative" upbringing had already drawn her to people who were likely to tell her unhelpful things. Given the ties she had to cut, however, it's hard to imagine there were many pathways where the Church did not become collateral damage.

The writing itself is simple, clean, and readable. I don't know how natural it is for her to write this way, but she and her team put together some wonderful prose.

On a personal note, this book hit close to home. I don't know anyone quite like her family, but she's local to me. Franklin County is next door to Bear Lake County---the Bear River runs right past her homestead. The nearest town was the same town Napoleon Dynamite lives in (although Westover kindly refers to it by a historical name), and we all know how much I identify with that bit of Idahoiana.

The greatest bit of Idaho she accomplishes, however, is the dialect. I often want to write Idaho, but I can't get the words to sound right. Tara Westover nails it. That's just how my family talks.

It's also heartbreaking to see how cut off our corner of Idaho is from the rest of the world. My own hometown, when I enter it, looks essentially identical to its appearance when I left, thirty-one years ago. A healthy town changes in three decades. You feel nostalgia for what was. My nostalgia is for what does not have the economic health to grow and change. Although I never met any hardcore fans of the apocalypse and was never treated by homeopathics, it fits; it makes sense.

So I think my primary feeling is one of shared tragedy, although mine is far less violent. And I thank her for sharing.

Franz Kline: A Study in Conflict

We are fortunate to have his mural ‘Lehighton’, as tangible 
evidence of his energy and talent.

Painting all day...1950s: Kline was known for his storytelling to all hours of the
night at the home base of many 'New York School' artists in the 1950s and 1960s,
Greenwich Village's Cedar Bar, of his favorite topics to discuss: his hometown.
The recent successful unveiling of 'Lehighton' in its new home is a testament to its value both by Lehightonians and those who love and respect the art of Franz Kline.
Local Kline authority and writer of ‘Carbon County’, a postcard history and contributor to Ebbert and Ripkey’s ‘Lehighton’, Rebecca Rabenold-Finsel writes this about the mural in her forthcoming book: ‘Kline in Coal Country,’ co-written with her son Joel Finsel:


Kline’s Lehighton mural is more than a painting; it is a confession, an unabashed and richly colored ode to this place he had called home. In the mural, Kline as alchemist transforms an ordinary small town to a rolling dreamscape of places seen and unseen. Among the dark hues and myriad of densely painted areas, secrets, only known to the artist, are hidden. In the center foreground of the work is a white house behind the entrance gate to the fair, a dark heart painted at the top of this house, gray-black on black, and adeptly camouflaged. His childhood home...

Here is a picture commissioned by Kline authority Rebecca Rabenold-Finsel for her forth coming book 'Kline Coal Country.'  The photo by area photographer Josh Finsel was used by the Allentown Art Museum for its 2012 Kline exhibit.  It is the best
photo taken of the mural prior to its removal from the Legion Post in November 2016.

"I paint the white as well as the black, and the white is just as important."Franz Kline

See the WFMZ special segment on the Kline restoration, including interviews with 
Professor Bob Mattison and Lehighton historian Ronald Rabenold.

Watch Allentown Art Museum's careful restoration of Kline's Lehighton mural.


The art world was just beginning to figure him out, this new form of expression that he and the 'New York School' had developed and offered to the world during his short life-time.

But Kline was a living dichotomy.  Just like his famous black and white abstracts, he found constant push between opposing forces.  He packed energy into his brush strokes, often adding texture with the edge of his hand or the base of his thumb.
Kline at the Cedar Bar

“The nature of anguish is translated into different forms.” Franz Kline

Up until the age of eight, Kline had a typical life. According to Rabenold-Finsel, Kline as a young boy, first sketched trains on the sidewalks of his West River Street Wilkes-Barre home, using a stick of rhubarb from the family garden.

But his father’s suicide, tears the family apart, and begins a heart-wrenching chain of events.  The death of Anthony Kline forces his mother Anna into some tough decisions: She must send her kids away so that she could support them with a nursing degree.  (See “Endnotes” for more on this.)

Franz’s siblings (Frederick, Louise, and Jack) are sent to an Episcopalian home, while Franz was sent to the Girard College Home for Fatherless Boys, a place Kline would for the rest of his life refer to as “the orphanage.”

Girard was said to be a cold place both in environment and in its severe military-like discipline.  Boys marched everywhere in two-by-two rank and files.  Kline arrived when he was just eight years old.

The mission of the place was to prepare young men to be productive workers.  Here is where Kline took his first drawing classes, preparatory courses for industrial draftsmen. 
Franz Kline used Lehighton as his source of inspiration for his "Pennsylvania Landscape" (c 1947-49).
The houses to the left were once on Bankway and Bridge Streets, burned in the 1970s.  
The bridge is the Lehighton-Weissport overhead trestle bridge that was torn down and replaced 
in the early 1970s.  These girders uplifted and viewed in the sky are resplendent and 
tangible residual manifestations seen in Kline's work.

During this time, his mother met and later married a Packerton Yard shop foreman from Lehighton.  Three years later, Ambrose Snyder, a recent widower himself, set up house with Anna Kline at the corner of Ninth and Alum Streets.

see "Union Hill" looming in the backdrop of both pictures.
 
Anna tried her best to gather up her family and Kline’s other siblings were soon returned.  However, at the tender age of ten, Kline was caught in a confluence of opposing forces.

Girard had a limited visitation policy, so Kline seldom came home.  It also had an equally strict contract that said once enrolled, the child remained there until he was eighteen.

It took five years of letter writing and remonstrations from Anna to finally bring Franz back home to her.

“If you’re a painter, you’re not alone.  There’s no way to be alone.”
 Franz Kline









Fearing her son had been academically stilted at Girard, she enrolled her fifteen year old son in seventh grade the following September. 

The High School Years: A Man Versus Boys:

Kline was born in May 1910 and entered Lehighton schools by the seventh grade in September 1925 at the age of 15, graduating in 1931 at the age of twenty-one.

Given his dashing good looks, athleticism, and his advanced age among his peers, Franz made a quick impression on his classmates.  It has been said that he played varsity football for six years.  He was the halfback in football and the catcher for baseball. 

He also loved exploring the outdoors and went hunting in the hills.  And with his step-father’s railroad pass, he had free access to all the points along the rails, taking in the rugged coal-country landscape that would seep through his consciousness and onto the canvas.

Kline acknowledged this residual imagery that entered his art:

This sketch of Kline's from the Lehighton High
yearbook of 1931 (turned upside down here for
effect) shows striking similarity to his later
abstracts that in a short word showed the conflict
Kline liked to imbue into his work.  (One of my favorite
things to do with these cropped sketches is to rotate
them around in a picture viewer, noting how the symmetry
holds together no matter the orientation.)
He said, "There are forms that are figurative to me, and if they develop into a figurative image … it's all right if they do. I don't have the feeling that something has to be completely non-associative as far as figure form is concerned."
From the Lehighton High school yearbook of
1931.  It is easy to see Kline's theme of
conflict in his early works.  A theme that
carried into his black and white abstract
days, of painting white up against black,
black up against white.


Black and White No. 1 c. 1952 - Compare the energy and emotion of his 1931 yearbook sketches to this circa 1952 painting. Copyright 2011 The Franz Kline Estate, Artists Rights Society [ARS].

A Personal Favorite -  From Kline's 1931 LHS Sketches -This one refers to his buddy, my father's cousin Harold Rabenold, and  Curt Blank playing hooky for a  "nature study."  The PA Dutch dialect is another good example of Kline's playful humor.
He had many friends in the neighborhood, Henry and Frank Bretney, and Ralph Beisel to name a few.  He was good friends with his Rabenold neighbors too: my Aunt Gladys, and my father’s cousins Harold “Spunt” and Donald.

Many young ladies of Kline’s day were known, after he achieved fame, to boast of a date with him being the highlight of their high school years.

Kline Re-Awakened – Fall 2012

The Allentown Art Museum, through the efforts of guest curator and Lafayette College Marshall R. Metzgar Professor of Art History, Dr. Robert S. Mattison, arranged for a three month exhibit, ‘Kline: Coal and Steel,’ the first and largest major Kline exhibit ever held in the Lehigh Valley.

This, in conjunction with the museum’s acquisition of Kline’s 1938 Lower East Side Market Scene, set the wheels in motion for the museum to acquire the mural of Lehighton from the American Legion Post #314 in Lehighton.

‘Kline: Coal and Steel’ left Allentown in January of 2013 and moved for a well-received run in New York City.
Marshall R. Metzgar Professor of Art History at Lafayette College, Dr.
Robert S. Mattison presents his life and art of Franz Kline lecture
to the intimate Saturday 28 January 2017 gathering
at the Allentown Art Museum.

Mattison, who authored the 2012 book entitled “Kline: Coal and Steel” made several distinctions on the artist.

Mattison dispelled the belief by some in the art world, both during Kline’s time as well as today, that a parcel of his inspiration came from the Japanese art of calligraphy.  

Kline wanted his viewers to be “unhindered by suggestions” and refused to give meanings to his work.  He avoided comment of the meanings of his works, conveying only emotional, non-symbolic discussions of his painting experience.

Prior to his explosion into the field of Abstract Expressionism, Kline’s scenes "depicting the intersection of nature and industry (Such as ‘Palmerton’) were not the bucolic representations some have asserted," said Mattison.  But rather most of his art is a gesture of conflict, of the pushing back and forth, the ebb and flow, the rise and decline of various forces.
Kline's 'Palmerton' is as equally compressed and geometrically contorted
as 'Lehighton.'  Note the Palmerton train station that still stands today as
well as the two Orthodox churches in the background.  A few of the piers
from the "high bridge" still remain in the Lehigh Gap.  Copyright 2017

He was said to have admired and perhaps identified with Jim Thorpe the athlete, and after Mauch Chunk changed its name, Kline would have renewed reason to regale his fellow artists of stories of his hometown.









Excerpt from Rebecca Rabenold-Finsel and Joel Finsel’s forthcoming book ‘Franz Kline in Coal Country’:
From the titles of many of his abstract works such as Mahoning; Harleman; Diamond and others––we believe that some of what went into producing his most significant works of the late 1950's, early 1960's included conjured memories of this home town.

It is easy to see the intersection between Kline’s early work and the influences from the anthracite and railroad region of Wilkes-Barre and Lehighton.  One cannot look at the overhead trestle of the Jersey Central trestle at the top left of the 'Lehighton' mural and not see forms from his later black and white murals.
The Jersey Central iron trestle passes over the Lehigh Valley rail lines at the southern extreme of the Packerton Yard, Lehighton in the 1960s.  This trestle plays a prominent role in Kline's Lehighton.  

This close up crop from 'Lehighton' of the overhead Jersey Central trestle
(torn down in the early 1980s to make wayfor the Lehighton Route 209 by-pass)
is another example of residual area images that seem to reappear in Kline's later works.

“You paint the way you have to in order to give.  That’s life itself, and someone will look and say it is the product of knowing, but it has nothing to do with knowing, it has to do with giving.” Franz Kline

Mattison mentioned Kline’s jovial and giving personality and his relentless story telling (to all hours of the evening in the Village’s Cedar Bar).  To his friends, he was always most generous in his time.  Kline’s favorite topic was discussing the love for the area he came from.

Examples of his generosity live on in the anecdotes of his local friends.  Other testaments to this are his design of posters for Adlai Stevenson's presidential run as well as donating one of his paintings to support his friend Andrew Weinstein's off-Broadway production of 'Red Eye of Love' in 1961.

off-Broadway show, 'Red Eye of Love' was

(One story goes that Jackson Pollock, known for his intemperance, once unhinged the bathroom door and threw it at the easy-going Kline.  The act earned Pollock what amounted to a lifetime ban from the bar.)

The Mural Comes to Be – 1938 to 1946:

Kline’s affinity for Great Britain begins with his mother, Anna Rowe Kline who was born in England in 1880.  She emigrated here around 1908 and shortly after married Anthony Kline who was fourteen years older than she.  He was a hotel keeper in Wilkes-Barre.

Kline’s English roots certainly played a part in his decision to study abroad in London’s Heatherley School of Fine Art.  Here, Kline met the ballet dancer Elizabeth Vincent Parsons, who sometimes sat in to model at the school. 

Elizabeth arrived in New York in the fall of 1938, a year and a half before Hitler’s lightning war over Britain began. Soon after, America entered the war.

As they fought along the muddy roads of battle, many of our fighting men sought refuge within the churches and cathedrals of Europe.  The last thing they saw each night, as they released their dream mind toward thoughts of home, were the vaulted ceilings of these churches.

With Hitler defeated and with the return of her sons, the Lehighton’s Shoemaker-Haydt Legion post expanded the old Lewis Graver Homestead into a cavernous banquet hall in the style of those open-beamed ceilings they saw in Europe.
The American Legion Post #314 banquet hall as it
appears today, it's large open beams were designed
to resemble the churches of Europe where many of
Lehighton's sons slept during WWII.  The beams were
said to have been cut by Herman Ahner's small sawmill
in Franklin Township.  Note the vacated space below the
American flag where the Kline mural hung for 70 years:
from1946 until November of 2016.  The dark beams against
the white spaces of the ceiling could have had a visual impact on
Kline as he worked on his mural.  (The space seemed
to loom there, still glowing with the pride of 'Lehighton'.)

This large hall also had some wall space to fill.  Through a stroke of good fortune, the Legion leadership decided to fill the large space behind the bar with art.  

Lehighton’s veterans, fresh from battle, would get to view their home town in mural-form, a view they dreamed of during those long nights away.

The Legion was lucky to land their native son, the struggling artist who was just beginning to gain a good reputation in the informal ‘New York School’ of artists.  This commission was made in late 1945.

Kline was too poor to afford quality paints in his everyday work.  In fact, much of his preliminary stretches were done on paper from the New York phone books. 

Many of his early and famous black and white canvas abstracts were done with relatively cheap hardware store house paints.  Holders of these pieces today refrain from loaning them out due to their fragile nature.

Fortunately, the Legion paid Kline a fair $600 for his mural.  This afforded him to use what has been deemed high-quality oil paints.  A fortunate circumstance indeed for without it, the removal and relocation would have greatly compromised the work’s integrity.

Many who first viewed it, perhaps expecting a more literally representation, failed to distinguish between their ideal of how Lehighton appeared versus Kline’s burgeoning abstract contortion of Lehighton’s reality. 

Some chided him for its departure from reality at the unveiling in December 1945. 
Little did they know Kline was entering a prolific period in his career, eventually placing his stamp on a global scale, for he would be an instrumental force in America’s first major contribution to a world-wide art movement, a founder in Abstract Expressionism.
'Elizabeth at Table' -
Elizabeth Parsons Kline, like her mother-in-law Anna,
was born in England.  Anna's health suffered in the late 1950s.
Her well-being certainly weighed on Kline in his last
few remaining years.  Franz Kline died in 1962.

The timing of the mural commission was fortuitous for Elizabeth’s health. 

With Kline’s struggle to provide and with Elizabeth’s struggles with schizophrenia, their time together in Lehighton while he painted the mural allowed them to have a stable home life with regular meals under the nurturing care of Kline’s nurse mother Anna.

The Mural: A New Life – October 2016 to January 2017
This past January 29th, the public was re-introduced to the piece at its new home in Allentown.  Lines formed outside the museum at noon in anticipation. 

Dr. Mattison’s one-hour life and influences on Kline’s life in the auditorium was packed, leaving many standing in the aisles, along the walls, and out the door.

Mattison guided the audience through Kline’s life as seen through his work.  Early examples of Kline illustrating conflict and the pressure between two opposing forces is keenly captured in his 1931 Lehighton High year book illustrations, as seen earlier in this post. 

The football player comically portrayed in a severely impossible pose, one forced upon it from an overpowering external force.


The same whimsy can be seen in his big band vignettes he painted at Graver’s Skating Rink, for his good high school friend Reuben Graver, whose family owned the rink and swimming pool in town.


These three vignettes represent the five big band theme paintings Kline did directly onto the yellow-pine,
tongue and groove paneling at Graver's Skating Rink in Lehighton, probably around 1928 or early 1930s. These were among the paintings exhibited as The Jazz Murals at Bucknell University in 1986, then Baruch College Gallery in New York and onward to other locations as well.  This and more information will be published from Rebecca Rabenold-Finsel's Kline in Coal Country available soon.

Crisis:

The collision of two events led ‘Lehighton’ to be transferred to the Allentown Art Museum.  The first, sadly, came as a result of the steep decline in living WWII Veterans.  As a result the Legion Post had to make some tough financial decisions to ensure a future.

Likewise, though the Legion still maintains a beautiful and functional banquet hall available for receptions and reunions, they knew they could not provide the museum quality climate control the mural needed, a mural already showing steady signs of degradation. 

A painful confrontation with reality led the trustees of the Legion to decide to sell it to the Allentown Art Museum.
Luca Bonetti and Beth Nunan, art conservators on the Kline project
field questions at a small reception on Saturday 28 January 2017.

“Keeping art around as long as possible and allowing other people to be inspired by it is essential and valuable to the world,” Beth Nunan, Kline mural conservator, Luca Bonetti group.






On November 3, 2016, members of the Manhattan-based Luca Bonetti art conservation team began to roll the mural off the wall and onto the painstaking task of scraping away plaster and glue off the back of the canvas. 

Bonetti and Nunan continued their restorations efforts into and beyond the unveiling date of 29 January 2017.

Here is Lehighton's first chief of police, William Swartz.
He was killed by a rowdy and drunk youth of twenty-
two at the Carbon House that sat at the corner of
North and First Sts.  He left eight children when he was
shot in 1917.

~QUESTIONS POST: Here is the link back to the questions.  You could have a tab open with each post to go back and forth to.

~BACKGROUND STORY: From the twenty-five stop "Trolley Tour" to accompany the commemorative 150th book sold at the event.  If you missed out, the Lehighton Memorial Library will continue to sell these.

1. "C": Mayor Thomas Mase
2. D: Friday
3. D: 6 Parks.  The consensus was that the "Upper and Lower" parks count as one.  Baer Memorial, Skyline, and The Grove were definitely thought of as parks.  However, the new Rails-to-Trails Bike path trail-head was overlooked.  Also, included here is "Sixth and Coal Sts" athletic field.
4. A: $5 for a moving permit.
5. A: Basketball
6. B: Dr. Marvin Snyder
7. C: The Excelsior Marines was not a Lehighton Organization.  The Germania Saegerbund was located next to the "Academy" Building on southern First St.  The Loyal Order of Buffalo (L.O.O.B), Lehighton Herd #17 started in April of 1913 with Lehighton Press's David McCormick's father William, the Civil War Veteran, was the first chair. Applicants for membership had to "be of the Caucasian race and not less than eighteen years of age and more than fifty years of age."  Admission fee for the herd was $10 for 18 to 40 year olds and $15 for 41 to 50 year olds.  Fifty cents a month paid in a advance were the yearly dues.  Though they stated they were not an "insurance organization," payments were made to sick and disabled "brothers."  "No sick or death benefits shall be paid for illness or death resulting from immoral or intemperate habits of any Brother."  Along with the International Order of Odd Fellows (I.O.O.F.) there were a total of nine secret societies in Lehighton as of 1890.
8. C: Field Hockey
9. B: the Lions
10. C: Miss Carbon County Pageant
11. A: Packerton Yard (Some thought this choice was wrong because it was technically out of the Borough limits.  The Baer Silk Mill at it's peak employed about 400 around 1915.  Scotty's Fashion was third and Blue Ridge Pressure Castings had a Lehighton payroll of less than 100.
12. A: ice cream
Jess Ripkey, Livi Frendt, Izzy Baka, and Sam Banning work the registration table from the LAHS Student Council.
13. C: Lehighton Hardware started in 1925.  Zimmerman's Dairy, though a long-time family farm in the Mahoning area, did not establish itself in Lehighton until after Gerstaluer's Dairy in the 1950s.  Gerstlauer's took over Small and Koch at the present day location of Zimmmerman's around 1934.  Blue Ridge Pressure Castings started in a warehouse on the Fair Grounds in the 1940s before moving to its present location after a fire.  Lehighton Hardware started by Mahlon Kistler Sr and William F. Hamilton started on First St and moved to Second St after a 1963 fire.
14. D: Count Zinzendorf himself oversaw the selection of the site at the mouth of the Mahoning Creek for his group of hard-working Moravian missionaries.
15. D: Kleintop's Diner was located at the bottom of Ninth St where the "fotune teller" single-wide is today.  One of the Kleintop boys was the recently deceased Paul Kleintop that ran Normal Square Inn in the 1990s and early 2000s before retiring to become a Carbon County Community Transit bus driver. His specialty and my favorite: Vienna Onion Roast.  Melted in one's mouth!

Parting gift Question: Lehighton has about 155 fire hydrants in the Borough limits.
The Brights Department Store credit card.  Brights put
Lehighton's Cohen Department Store out of business
partly by providing free bus transportation to its Lansford
Store in the 1950s.  Later, Brights bought out Cohen's less
than a year after starting this program.  Brights also
provided a free Mother's Day luncheon for all its female
shoppers.  As for how they procured the finest items?
Lehighton purchasing agents were often flown to
Newark New Jersey for buyers meetings sometimes
up to two to three times a week, employing local pilots
like Mr. Walp from South Street to fly out of Lehighton's
own airstrip off Ninth St at the Fairgrounds.

Round #2:
16. Blue Ridge Pressure Castings, is still a leader in the manufacture of specialty parts for the automotive industry.  Knepper Airplane Parts building is now a hospital auxiliary building, the Hersh Iron Foundry closed many years ago while Blue Mountain Machine has recently become a leading producer of mobility chairs.
17. A: An escalator and an elevator.  Bright's had style.  Once it moved to the Carbon Plaza Mall in 1976 (it occupied the Mahoning Valley Cinema down to and including Big Lots) it also opened their own "Hess Brother's"-styled restaurant.  They also provided their own store credit card like the large stores like Macy's and JC Penny's.
18. C: W. Melvin "Mush" Moyer and Earl Haupt formed "Moyer and Haupt" in 1945.  They sold their dealership to the Bennett group in 1986.  Mush Moyer formed a orchestra known as the Lehightonians from 1928 to 1942.  They started their American Motors dealership in 1957.
19. D. Serfas Motors (used just one final 's') was located on Iron St at the alley behind the former Classic Theater/Times News Building.  The fire occurred in May of 1918.  The current building was built sometime after this date and was once occupied by Moyer and Haupt before they moved to First St.
20. B: Dave Warner, son of Dave "Pap" Warner from North Eighth Street was a three year letter winner at Syracuse and tried out for the Eagles before getting cut.
21. D: Colonial Court reviled Asa Packer's mansion as the grandest of Carbon County homes.  It burned to the ground in 1916 and was catty-corner from the Grove.
22. A: 1940.
23. B: about 6,500.
24. C: about 40 degrees north latitude.
25. D: Lewis Dunbar.  It was later taken over by Mel Gilham who moved it from Fourth St to the bypass in the 1980s.  It continues today under the ownership of Craig and Jennifer Gilham, Mel's son.  Lewis enlisted in Ohio and that is where he married his wife who was from that state.  By 1930, his mother-in-law moved here to Lehighton and lived with Lewis and his wife.
26. C: Moravians first came here to live in 1746.  Therefore our birth as a town goes to 1866, but our founding was in 1746.
These placards were used in the southern section of town
during Lehighton's 1903 outbreak.  This one was from 1916
Lehighton Board of Health.
27. D: Baer went home to New Jersey to visit his parents and siblings.  It wasn't apparent until he reached home that their unknown malady they were starting with was smallpox.  This was part of a larger outbreak in many major northeastern cities at that time.
28. A: Orville Shoemaker was from Lehighton, made a go of this business first in Allentown before resettling back here and making Lehighton "Grandma's Chips" permanent home, north and opposite of the Legion Home, next to the home of James and Shirley Wentz.
29. C: Semanoff's grocery store was on the corner of Fourth and Iron Sts, most recently well-known as Marshall's Meat Market.  This iconic Lehighton building is the last of many that once had a porch overhang roof over the sidewalks in front.  This is an ideal bus stop location for kids bused to the western end of town today.
30. A: Denny Semmel.  Made it to the NCAA championship round in the national wrestling tournament for West Point.  He is currently a fifth grade math teacher at Lehighton.


Parting Gift Question: The first bridge between Weissport and Lehighton was built in 1804.

SPORTS:
1. Jim Thorpe - Lehighton was led by point guard Randy Rabenold while his father Randolph Rabenold was Jim Thorpe's assistant coach.  Lehighton went on to win twenty-one games in a row to earn an undefeated season in the inaugural Centennial League of 1976.
2. Thomas Kresge, brother to Steve and Greg who themselves also fine Lehighton players.  Son of Russell and Donna Kresge.
3. Betty Mullen Brey - Her son is the current Notre Dame Men's Basketball coach, their winningest coach in their history.
4. Hughie Jennings played here before going off on a Hall of Fame career as a major league player and coach.  He was from Pittston and a lawyer by trade.
