  1. What fictional character will you vote for presidency of the USA?

    I thought about this. IT is a hard one. We as humans beings talk about who will be a leader, but the better question is, what do the people need? I ask you to list, what people need in the usa and then name a character who fits the ability to deliver the items in your list. ... I will not submit, but wait to see what others say.






  2. Do you know of a positive book about a child bride, positive defined as a child bride who is happy being married to an adult <child being circa 12 adult being circa or over 30>? The following video made me consider that concept. I am against forced marriage in general, or marriages arranged between strangers, in general. But, I realize I never read or heard of a positive child bride story?
    WARNING: the following video may disturb you alot in some moments


  3. silent sundays , check it out on Turner Classic Movies






    The first movie is : Two Arabian Knights- a comedy, it is interesting how a woman fully veiled was in the film as the lead female.


    The second is the Racket: No blood but love the blunt shooting. And the cop in this movie actually aimed downward for the gun The movie is clearly displaying the the italian mob take over from the irish mob in nyc aside the italian mob fights. I love how the female lead used a cone to sing through and they had a violin with a horned resonator, for a member in her band. I love how the lounge singer burned the mob bosses brother's hand when he tried to press her near him. The reporter who fell in love with the singer was classic. I love when she asked him, what if you get a baby pregnant and find out about storks. The condition of the womens cell was atrocious while honest. I will not blow the ending but it is very honest in a way few if any films are today. In the end of street drama usually, the end for folks is not a thing of justice but more eventuality. The system wins and the pieces fall where they may. The freedom of the strong woman is very present in the end, enjoy.

    • Mandalorian - It is not from disney's involvement, but to see Esposito side weathers, two black travelers , one a great actor and the other, a student of the craft. I... will still not get disney streaming in the same way michelle yeoh or patrick stewart will not get me to buy cbs streaming, but i bet this show will be good, like i hear the star trek content on cbs streaming is.
      And I love that theme riff, and because he played one of my favorite characters in the game of thrones books, the man who played the red viper is playing the mandalorian

  7. Acting- Lawrence Olivier once said to Dustin Hoffman on the set of The Marathon Man, I paraphrase : "my dear boy, why don't you try acting, it is far much easier"
    His point is correct. From the 1970s to today, so many actors are using the method, which simply means, instead of acting as someone, try inspiriting them in oneself. The concept is simple, if you live fiscally poor you will be able to act poor. If you live fiscally wealthy, you can not act fiscally poor as well as someone who has chosen to live fiscally poor.
    I agree to Olivier, the best acting doesn't require a lifestyle change of an actor, the inspiration comes from the soul absent the need to manipulate the body from the actor.
    What say you?

  10. I see @Troy I thought a film like legend would be known enough for people to comprehend the context. The idea for the collage was to make stories around the films story, same thing with the first power, a movie I admit is less known. The goal of the collage is for people to click on the images and see what story they get. the images are placed layered so they are not always comprehended. IT is meant to mysterious outside general comprehension of the film. In your opinion, how can I gain better attention with this idea?

  11. hmm question @Troy I thought people who love images will be inspired to click on images and then to the wee tales. Are you saying I have it backwards? ....I thought I had figured out how to make the font larger while allowing for scrolling, the scrolling still is too fast, and I will have to make a script more than likely but I realize the font being appropriate for all the images is better.

  14. @Troy yeah, their internal organization changed and were guided to lose the openness. To be fair with so many websites restricting images and deviantart allowing adult images, i can comprehend why their accountants said it is a money lose to continue the embedding, but it is a shame. That is one of the reasons I like aalbc, you can guest comment still, though many websites are not allowing that anymore

  15. Code GEass Submission
    In retrospect, I should had not placed the alias in there considering the color scheme, but I started at 9pm and wanted to make an honest art work. I chose calligraphy which is an art work i am interested in for another project later on, but I tell me how you like it. Sorry but Deviantart no longer allow embeds.
