Categories: General, Tags: ,

My family knows I love . So when they brought me closer to the middle of an open book, I was not surprised, began to read: “New York is real. He calls the museum did not thrill. It was created for life, work, entertainment and death. Historical monuments are absent. Past, present and future are drawn in the same harness.

Revolution happen – there will be nothing to storm. There is no sense of place. There is a sense of the ship, stuffed with millions of passengers. This city is so diverse that you know – there is a corner for you. ” Not having read through, I realized that it Dovlatov. On the cover he is looking somewhere else for us over the head and the words “Craft.” You have already understood that passage, as well as the entire book – autobiographical. But most importantly to a friend! If you pick up the book, see the note just to the site, I realized – that is so necessary to write in his blog. “Craft” – is essentially a “blog” Dovlatov.

Off is not possible. It seems to me Every blogger wants to on his blog could not tear myself away. How do I do? Read Dovlatov. Now note Dovlatov called “The Island” is fully Island ‘Three cities have passed through my life. The first was Leningrad. Without work and effort was given Leningrad posture of the capital. Water and stone determined its horizontal pompous style. Generosity is as common as unhealthy complexion, debt and perpetual self-irony. Leningrad has painful complex spiritual center, somewhat deprived of its administrative rights. The combination of inferiority and superiority makes him a very sarcastic gentleman. Such cities have in any decent country. (In Italy – Milan. In France – Lyon. In the United States – Boston.) Leningrad called the capital of the Russian provinces. I think it’s the least the city soviet Russia … Next was Tallinn. Some consider it too tiny, confectionery, cloying. I know that these cakes – with stuffing. Tallinn – the city is vertical, introverted. Looking at the Gothic tower and think – about yourself. This is the least Soviet Baltic city. Penalty transfer between East and West. My life has flowed for years from East to West. The third city in this life became a New York City. New York – a chameleon. A broad smile on his face, easily replaced by a contemptuous grimace. New York relaxing serene and deadly. Sweeping generous and painfully stingy. Ready to bestow you, but is able to destroy, and without a moment’s hesitation. Its architecture resembles a bunch of toys. It is a nightmare so that achieves a certain harmony. His aesthetics in harmony with the train accident. It violates the laws of school geometry. Mocks gravity. Refreshes the memory of third-Cubist canvases. New York real. He did not cause the museum trepidation. It was created for life, work, entertainment and death. Historical monuments are absent. Past, present and future are drawn in the same harness. Revolution happen – there will be nothing to storm. There is no sense of place. There is a sense of the ship, stuffed with millions of passengers. This city is so diverse that you know – there is a corner for you. I think that New York City – my last, decisive, final city.

Hands, Which Were Built America

Categories: General, Tags: ,

"The earth rotates, but we do not notice," "America was born on the streets of" New York, 1846 … North leads a brutal war with the South, and from Ireland are coming more and more new ships, filled with people fleeing from the British yoke. A young "Amsterdam" (Leonardo DiCaprio) desires to avenge his father's murderer, who heads a gang of "local" and hold down the entire New York area and Five Corners Cutting Bill the butcher. "Gangs of New York" – is not only story of the settling of scores and the problem of moral choice between duty to the person you brought up, and devotion to the extremely charismatic villain, who seemed not so bad, just the truth he has another. This is an epic story of the birth of American democracy. There was confusion all: opposition to "true" Americans and the nativists, Irish Catholics and Protestants, local acceptance of people of color, the feud with the legitimate government at war with the South and drove people into the army, and finally, personal vendettas and devotion to his convictions.

This is the story of a time when the offer to speak the language of democracy, in New York could get the ax in the back and the streets were turned into slaughterhouses and soldiers marching over the corpses to their ankles in blood. And the story of personal revenge, "Amsterdam" Uellota butcher-Bill (Daniel Day-Lewis) in his eyes turned to the other, is not private in American history, completes a magnificent music of Howard Shore ("Lord of the Rings," "The Departed") and U2 with the final composition The Hands That Built America (The hands that built America"). Remember the covenant of the Holy Father Uellota – the blood must remain on the cutting edge? Why – because, as a knight – not a butcher, and the blade, as well as conscience should be clean? Because remembering her shame, and taking it for granted, you can find the strength to go on. Become a better can only be mindful of their mistakes. And it does not only to members of the brotherhood "of dead birds." This is a general message of the film, directed to understanding the historical heritage. No need to deny their past, as it happens. To accept, interpret and move on. But never forget …

English Drama

Categories: General, Tags: ,

Drama has Shown an interest in current issues of our time from the earliest products. In the period from 1879 to 1883. Shaw wrote five novels: “immaturity”, “unreasonable marriage,” “Love Artists,” “Job Keshilya Byron,” and “Socialist loner.” In those years, Shaw’s novels have not received recognition. Beginner the writer had to endure a long and unequal combat with numerous publishers. He received only rejections, but do not give up.

An innovator by nature, and show a novel tried to introduce something new. Show Novels testified he inherent skill of the playwright, is still waiting for his case detection. In the novels it was reflected in a clearly expressed tendency to dialogized form, brilliantly constructed dialogue, which all without exception belong to the main show site. In 1884, Shaw joined the Fabian Society, soon after its creation. It was a social reformist organization, seek to direct the working movement. The task of the members of the Fabian Society was considered study of the principles of socialism and the transition paths for him. As a true innovator in the field of Shaw spoke of the drama. It approved a new type of English theater drama – intellectual drama, in which the principal place belongs to no intrigue, no gripping story, and even tense disputes, witty verbal fights, which lead his heroes. Shaw called his play “The play-discussions.” They captured the depth of the problems, an unusual form of their resolution, they excited the audience consciousness, made it hard to think about what is happening and fun to laugh along with the playwright over absurdity of existing laws, orders, customs.

Luc Besson And Laura Bow 2 The Dagger Of Amon Ra

Categories: General, Tags: ,

In this note a strange background. The film "The Extraordinary Adventures of Adele" I looked for a reason. I wanted to make a splash – such as exposure of the film "Home" to copy the idea of "DuckTales." Wanted Tell the world that Luc Besson does not himself invented his Adele. Later I learned that the film is the comic strip Jacques Tardy, but still – fueled hope that these comics and they carried off the idea from somewhere. I wanted to find the source.

It seemed to me that I found it. This is a series of games about a certain Laura Palmer Bow, which is, um, just like Adele and recently graduated from college. It is engaged in fiction writing (Laura writes articles for the newspaper New York Daily Tribune, and Adele writes popular fiction) and has a gift engage in all sorts of questionable activities. First of all, I was hooked shot from pterodactyls. Here's what I understood – I stumbled on something important.

He looked more screenshots of the game Laura Bow: The Dagger of Amon Ra and realized it was all in the advertising trailer for the new film by Luc Besson. About the movie itself is told. Impressions after a positive but modest, much underpaid. Compensate for the failure decided by the game, make a bunch of screenshots, some dragged out Internet. I realized – the movie "The Extraordinary Adventures of Adele" – literally copy the game on many points. Well would be if they were two, I would not have noticed but a lot of them. I will try to show it. To appreciate my work from you need dash of fantasy. For example, a room Anji is the same as in the game, but it shows us a different perspective. If we are in your mind will be able to cast it from above, we see a complete similarity. PS: As you know, not sensationalism happened. It turns out, Jacques Tardy and his comic strip ahead of the game found me as much as 20 years. The first story is about Adele went to the French comic book Pilote in 1972, the year. A game about Laura Bow appeared in 1992. And now, almost a fifth part of the century, the film was released. Perhaps Monsieur Besson and playing with Laura, but the film is removed after all of the comic strip. Alas, I did not stir. PS 2: I once again admire the site Game-nostalgia. I was able to find it all that is scattered on the internet.
