On June 15 2007 a 28 year old man, Björn Jue, was strapped to a chair and tortured to death in the town of Pernis, The Netherlands. The suspected murderers, Jeffrey van S. and Walter A. (25) are said to have been inspired by a gruesome torture scene in "Hostel 2", which they reenacted after Jeu's ex-girlfriend, Marian D. (24) told them he had repeatedly molested his 5-year old son; however this accusation has not been confirmed so far. Two police officers arrived at the scene after calls that Jue was "held against his will". Jeu was screaming for his life. However, the officers did not enter the house and called for backup because this is standard procedure when a hostage situation is suspected. When backup arrived half an hour later (some witnesses claim it was more than an hour later), the screaming had stopped. Jeu died at the scene. Full details were not disclosed for being "too horrible and beyond imagination."



YEAH, IT'S THAT GOOD!!!

Steve, I still remember Runaway Boy (I think off debut), and it still kicks.  They have a great live show from what Ive been told and Brian looks the shit as well (not that Im gay or anything, not that theres anything wrong with that  :-D)

Janko, I havent seen second Hostel yet but the first was amazing.  Im not really into modern horror, but just saw The Ring 2 last night and that was pretty impressive as well  :)

i'm usually not into thyat sort of stuff but Shaun of The Dead was an exception, it was genuinely funny and pretty well-made and clever film in all. wasn't there this scene where they were trying to find something to throw at the approaching zombies and the only thing they had was a box of old vinyl record? that was so funny, when they still had time to read the labels and hastily decide whether or not have heart to throw that particular record or not. :lol:
(did they end up throwing new order's 'blue monday' (original pressing!) or not? i guess they did hahahaa :smth082 )

my tastes for movies might have changed a bit here and there over the years, but one genre i've lways loved ever since i was something like 6 years old: good western movies. the good ones are just... good!
i just grabbed this from the discount shelf of the local store some time ago, it's a 2-disc special edition.
and i hadn't seen it for a long long time - but damn this is a good movie!  :smth023
and what a classic score by ennio morricone too.  :smth020

Homicide: Life on the Street.

All of it. I never quite got into the show when it first aired (I found some of the camera work grating), but now I'm hooked. TV on DVD is a godsend.

The show was created by the guy who went on to create The Wire, which if you haven't seen, you need to. Best show on television.

I also just finished watching "Dead Like Me" for the second time. Awesome series, killed just as it had totally hit its stride.

Anyone else watch it?

I was happy to learn that there is a direct-to-DVD movie (I know, that's the stuff of Steven Seagal and the Olsen Twins) in the works, with almost the entire original cast (they re-cast Daisy, and Rube simply isn't in it  :smth011 and they are adding Henry Ian Cusick from "Lost").

And perhaps the series may even return (keeping my fingers crossed, as it's been a few years, and cast members obviously move on... But I guess the new head of MGM is a mega-fan, and people are PSYCHED about the movie...

HAROLD IS SUCH A GOTH KID! I mean, there was no such thing back then, but in a way he's a protogoth. Swear to god. He hangs out at funerals and drives a herse! Awesome flick, very sad, great soundtrack although I'm not a Cat Stevens fan I love that song "I think I see the light" and I listen to it alot now.

Very funny, he fakes suicide a bunch of times to freak out houseguests and get his mother's attention, then he meets an old lady and they fall in love. Very sweet story and lots of memorable scenes. I think it's been forgotten with time but everyone should see it!

First I teased him for watching it, then I ended up getting hooked and watching the whole thing myself! Boy, it really is a bad movie, but it feels like a piece of my life's history and.... I just love watching The King Tony Manero strutt his stuff on the dance floor! Even if it is disco.

Last night, New Years Eve, we stayed home, having a quiet night...way past going out and getting "legless" these days!! On the tv were 2 Beatles features!! One was about the music and what Cirque De Soleil are doing with it. It was fantasic to watch how they gelled the music and dance; they collaborated with Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Olivia Harrison and Yoko Ono, who were all thrilled with the end result; : opened in June 2007 overseas, something I would seriously consider seeing if it came to South Oz...Then, after that, they showed the film "Help"!! Talk about taking me back!! I was lucky that my older siblings were really into the Beatles, and I grew up with their music blasting through the house.. Really brought back so many memories, hearing and seeing these 2 shows..still enjoy the Beatles music, those lads were way before their time!!!

That has to be the best movie I've seen in a long time!!! :shock: Very suspenseful, keeps a good sense of realism and drags you in there almost like one of those interactive 3D attractions at the carnivals and whatnot. Very, very good filming and effects (although I must admit that the ending over-did it...no spoilers!!! lol)

SO MUCH, in fact, that my jaw was open mostly the whole film. By the time the credits were rolling and the lights went on, I noticed that I had drooled all over myself...it was THAT good!

I think the whole seizure thing is ridiculous...I had no problems at all, and I am a sufferer of frequent migraine headaches!

NINE INCH NAILS - new york, saugerties - woodstock '94

one of the classic NIN shows and imo one of the classic shows by anyone ever. great that they got it filmed...
everyone (including the band) was covered with mud from head to toe and it's a raging performance...
this is one of the gigs i sometimes put on in order to "just watch a couple of tracks" and then i always end up watching all through, every damn time. :P

Yes, a few months ago I found the Happiness in Slavery video of this show and was totally blown away with their performance!  I like how Reznor beats up his keyboard as he plays, then completely starts to annihilate anything around him.  Loved it!!

Michael Mann's "MANHUNTER"...now I'm obsessed with Shriekback's "This Big Hush"!!! 8)

It was way better than Silence Of The Lambs and had a really cool look to it. BTW it's on demand on Comcast...or at least it was.

Oh, CLASSIC! Great usage of the song as well, it gave the song a really gothic feel, even though by itself you wouldn't think twice about categorizing it as "gothic"...but with the pseudo-religious imagery and sadistic nature of Dollarhyde, it really shed new light on the song. :shock: 8)

I had already known the song beforehand (as it was the song my mother's teacher used to torture her with during class...she hated it for some reason)...long story short, great movie, great soundtrack!  :smth023

'play out' always was my favorite of all the official cure videos. even though it's rather incoherent at times (some people even say "boring") there's just something in the atmosphere there, it somehow catches a magical period... hard to explain it i guess. 

anyway you just reminded me i haven't watched it all through for god knows how long...
so thanks for the tip. ;)

I think I know what you mean about the "atmosphere" in 'play out'...I'm afraid it's nothing I can verbalise...but there's just "something".  For me, seeing them perform working versions of songs that ended up on Wish (Cut, A Letter to Elise) is just fascinating...

Anyhow, for me today it's Show (another one I haven't seen in years)....THAT version of A Forest....OMG!! Brilliant!

My brother's been bugging me about seeing this movie, so I was a tad skeptical about it at first...good one, even if it wasn't "much of a movie". Yeah, yeah... ;) Gotta love Milton, and that scene when they "take care of" the printer out on a field. :-D

Oh and I luuuve Harold and Maude, saw it for the first time just a month ago or so. May I venture that there's no other movie quite like it!? "Harold! That was your last date!" :smth082

Heathers is another keeper, by the way. I actually came to think of a line from the movie just a couple of days ago that cracks me up every time: "I LOVE MY DEAD GAY SON!"

Haven't seen Hot Fuzz yet, but perhaps I should...sounds like such a "boys will be boys" superhero movie, "he's sooo cool and amazing they had to get rid of him"...Loved Simon and his buddy (can't remember the name) in Shaun of the Dead (have you seen Simon in Black Books? Unforgettable!). And oh, Martin Freeman from the original The Office (oh yeah!) has a small role in the film. Don't think he's that much of an actor, but he can be quite...attractive, at times...

You know, I don't know if it's cos I'm getting old and cranky, but there aren't many films which really "grab" me... have seen quite a few lately, but I usually feel disappointed when the dvd finishes. I am open to any "topic", don't have one particular genre that I stick to. Just want to be entertained for a couple of hours ( by a film, by a film!!) doesn't have to be deep and meaningful, just a good story that captures my imagination. *sigh* maybe it's me...!!   :smth087

@ Melly: I've only heard of The Mist from 2007, is there an older version? Can't find it...

I don't watch horror movies that often. Hardly ever, actually. The last one I saw was The Orphanage by Juan Antonio Bayona (Guillermo del Toro from Pan's Labyrinth one of the producers), and I really, REALLY enjoyed it. I bet a lot of horror movie buffs snort at it, there are some clichés used, but they felt fresh to me. I loved the movie more for the atmosphere than the jump factor though. Being someone who has a bit of a prejudice against horror movies, thinking the creators always resort to grossing you out when they can't muster the suspense, it was a real treat to get to watch a genuinely suspense-driven horror movie like this one. Oh, and when you realize what's happened at the end, it's heartbreaking. Warmly recommended.

You know, the same thing has been happening to me... and I've actually decided that it is indeed because I'm getting old and cranky. I can't remember last time I really, really enjoyed a movie. Which maks me sad, because I've always loved cinema! It's just been ages since I've seen anything that felt new or surprised me.

@Poe.. I am SURE I have seen The Mist before, would have been a long time ago, but I knew the film every step, even the actors were very familiar. There must be an old version of it somewhere?  I kept asking my fella, "Have you seen this before, I know it so well?"..No, he's never seen it. Hmmm, odd.
@Robiola..it is a relief to see that I'm not the only one who feels like this!!  Most of the new releases, with such fanfare and high expectations, leave me flat and thinking "that's IT??!!"....
No Country for Old Men was good though... well, I enjoyed it!!

one of my favorite films:

winged migration (http://www.sonyclassics.com/wingedmigration/index_flash.html)

i saw this on a big movie screen a few years ago and it's seriously one of the most intense movie experiences i've ever had. i don't know how they managed to film it all but it literally takes you up there in the sky, to fly among the birds - and all done without computer effects/CGI, it's all real footage.
there's very little spoken script in the film, as it relies on such breathtaking footage that there's no need to explain anything.
maybe the most beautiful movie ever made. i never was a kind of person who starts sobbing at the end of some romantic comedy, never ever... and people always say how they cry when they watch E.T. or Titanic or whatever it is they name. i never relate to that. but the first time i saw this i was in tears through most of it, simply because it was too beautiful and too powerful to see. and yeah, feel free to call me a wacko - i don't care, i love this film! - even on my little tv set. :)

i saw this on a big movie screen a few years ago and it's seriously one of the most intense movie experiences i've ever had.
My husband and I sooooo wanted to see this on the big screen, but it didn't stay around very long, and we missed it. We have it on VHS, but our VHS player went to the big VHS fields in the sky shortly after we bought the cassette. So I only got to see it once, and only on tv. But it was, as you say, extremely powerful, incredibly beautiful. I was so taken with it, it was like being under a spell. And as far as the "wacko" thing goes... just before Winged Migration came out, a friend of mine was at the movies; they were showing the trailer for this film, and she heard a woman saying "How stupid do you have to be to pay to watch birds fly around for two hours?" She told me that it really made her laugh, since at that very moment she was thinking that she'd like to go see it with me and my husband because she thought we might like it.
So, stupid wackos -- unite! And go to the movies. :-D

My aunt showed me and my brother a couple of episodes of this show when we stayed over at her place. I've been looking for something like this show for years; it's clever, it's strange, it's imaginative, and it manages to (at times) scare the viewer with escalating suspense rather than yucky gore. Watch it if you haven't already. By the way, Schindler's List is one of my favorites. Good pick.

not watching a blockbuster movie (have seen The Dark Knight...wow!) but currently watching the Olympics...love to watch the people striving to not just win, but to finish.

I particularly love the equestrian events, such beautiful creatures, their riders tall and proud.
And watching it all on our new 106cm LCD full HD TV..it's freezing cold,pouring with rain, and I'm snuggled up on the couch... no doubt I will end up with square ( or rectangular!) eyes, but hey, it's only every 4 years!!

Arrrrghhh! One of the few films I haven´t seen with Mr Depp. Must make it happen soon!

highly recommended.  :smth023

"Originally from Cleveland, William Blake gets a job as an accountant in a place called "Machine Town". Already in the train that takes him to the Dickinson wood factory an "unknown guy" warn him against the place he is going to. It is not fortune that awaits him but Death. Indeed the first night in "Machine Town", Blake is shot at and wounded. From this point on start a long journey of wandering in company of Nobody, an Indian and a philosopher.

This black and white film is mesmerizing. Obviously the black and white marks a rupture between what you are used to…So in essence this rupture is between let say classic Western and Jim Jarmush western as he re-visit the genre. It is also a way to keep the audience to what is essential…Color is a filter that can distract you, the sobriety of black and white will not.

But what exactly is essential in that movie? Beside the fact that Mr. Jarmush depict a brutal and impulsive America, the movie opposes a new born civilization that is already collapsing and a dying one that is still shining…But more than that the journey of William Blake is a metaphoric and circular voyage from misunderstanding to certitude. The guide Nobody, himself trapped between the two civilizations can not provide a cure to the passing man but may very well provide a path to a curing one. This journey from Machine Town, the "anti chamber" of hell to the sea, first step to Heaven is tremendously poetic and emotional. Also emotional is the evolution from misunderstanding to comprehension between Nobody and William Blake who eventually settles on what is essential reaching a common ground, clarity…

Help by a haunting and beautiful score from Neil Young and an extraordinary cast the film succeed in transforming the wood wagon of hell in which William Blake embarks to the wooden vessel to heaven in which he will lie.

One of the best films from Mr. Jarmush, Dead Man manages to take the audience in one of cinema most poetic journey…"

(user comment/review by 'auberus' from http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0112817/)



"Look out the window. And doesn't this remind you of when you were in the boat, and then later than night, you were lying, looking up at the ceiling, and the water in your head was not dissimilar from the landscape, and you think to yourself, "Why is it that the landscape is moving, but the boat is still?"



(btw the entire casting of this movie is great: lots of memorable odd-ish supporting roles and cameos, for instance iggy pop makes a pretty odd appearance.)

Arrrrghhh! One of the few films I haven´t seen with Mr Depp.

talking about mr depp, have you seen this one (it was depp's debut as a director too, i think)?:

(http://www.lovefilm.com/lovefilm/images/products/9/12229-large.jpg)

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0118768/


"A down-on-his-luck American Indian recently released from jail is offered the chance to "star" as the victim of a snuff film, the resulting pay of which could greatly help his poverty stricken family.
...Convinced that he has nothing to offer this world, he agrees to be tortured to death by a gang of rednecks in return for $50,000."
 (from imdb).

i have to say i'll recommend it because it is a very good film, but i'll do so with a warning as it's also one of the most shocking films i've seen, truly. it was really a slap in the face for those people who used to think depp was just a pretty face.

there are no shocking images or anything but the fact that you know what's going to happen in the end... it's a pretty heavy film.
i found it pretty hard to sleep after watching this film.

btw marlon brando makes a truly scary appearance, really creepy.

As a matter of fact no (said with a slight touch of embarresment).

Just watching Narc (Joe Carnahan) on Swedish television. Ugly and sleazy but dark and fierce. Jason Patric is awesome in this flick (even Ray Liotta makes a difference). A little touch of Quentin Tarantino or a police film from the 70´s.

i don't usually watch that kind of stuff (particularly if it's being broadcast overseas or something), but i actually did watch this too. it's good to notice how big change in mental climate this change is already bringing. especially in a time when most news that you watch on a daily basis are more or less depressing/straining/full of all sorts of other downers.

http://waltzwithbashir.com/

a very good film about  supressed memories of the lebanon war and the genocide in the refuge camps:

One night at a bar, an old friend tells director Ari Folman about a recurring nightmare in which he is chased by 26 vicious dogs. Every night, the same number of beasts. The two men conclude that there’s a connection to their Israeli Army mission in the first Lebanon War of the early eighties. Ari is surprised that he can’t remember a thing anymore about that period of his life.
Intrigued by this riddle, he decides to meet and interview old friends and comrades around the world. He needs to discover the truth about that time and about himself. As Ari delves deeper and deeper into the mystery, his memory begins to creep up in surreal images …


the film also has an interestingly original style, something of an "animated documentary". works very well imo. and it makes the occasional real documentary/news footage really powerful and shocking. 
recommended watching.

hey too bad. anyway it's a really good film about a really eye-opening subject. i totally agree with this review:

I have never seen a film quite like this in my life and I have never left the cinema feeling the way I did. About ten inutes in you forget you are watching an animation and a subtitled film you soon realise you are watching a masterpiece. Best film I have seen all year.
(review on www.play.com)

so i suggest you could try to pick it up on dvd. i'm sure it's already available on rental.

I've heard about Persepolis, yet again there's a film adaptation out before I've even read the back of the book... The film's got an 8.0 at imdb, so it must have pleased some readers. Perhaps it's one of those film adaptations that doesn't ruin the book for you if you haven't read it first...

this used to be one of my favorite movies years ago, i hadn't seen it for years. i just got the dvd and i'm all thrilled again.

a really original film, based on the wonderful play by tom stoppard (this film version directed by him, too). 
the story of shakespeare's hamlet seen through the eyes of the two characters who in shakespeare's play are just a footnote at the end of the play.
while trying to figure out why exactly they've been summoned to the court, they more or less accidentally invent everything from hamburgers to gravity - all of which goes hilariously unnoticed.
gary oldman and tim roth are simply marvelous pair in this!

Searching for the Wrong Eyed Jesus. A brilliant and enlightning film about the people that still are the links between what once was and what now is in American folk music. It´s sometimes a very sad film and sometimes the purity of the partisipants sagas is hard to comprehend, especially the parts from Louisianna and all the churches filled with those different reverends shouting out loud. But it´s yet a film well worth feeling through.

I just saw a brilliant Swedish film called "Fyra veckor i juni" which is Swedish for "Four Weeks in June". It was about an elderly woman (Ghita Nörby) and a younger woman (Tuva Novotny) and some Polish guestworkers existing in and around an old house under reconstruction. So many stories were told and so many secrets were revieled and the whole atmosphere of the film was close to magic. I relly can´t understand why so much crap is produced in Sweden when the ability to make such a great film really is there. Brilliant acting between the two women and a highly suggestive photo and a very nice music score even if The Soundtrack of Our Lives isn´t one of my favorite bands. But that´s the music the younger woman likes to play when she´s alone in her appartment.

I must confess that I didn´t think it was a film for me but gee was I wrong. Luckily it was on one of the non commercial channels so there were no intermissions for commercial breaks. Unfortunately my coffee went cold cause I simply wouldn´t or couldn´t walk away from the story. Bad thing I saw it alone. This was a film I could have sit up all night and discuss.

Brilliant! Directed by one for me unknown man by the name of Henry Meyer. I strongly recommend it. Check the link below and click on "trailer"

Incident At Oglala (1992)

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0104504/

(http://www.argusfest.org/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2009/06/iao-film.jpg)

a documentary about one of the most well-known political prisoners, leonard peltier, who's been serving two life sentences for in US prisons since 1976. he was sentenced for murdering two FBI agents but he's very likely to be an innocent man - somebody just "had to pay", like one of the jury members of his trial later said in an interview. and even regardless of whether or not he was guilty, he has been arguably illegally imprisoned.

a very well done documentary, directed by michael apted and produced and narrated by robert redford, it consists of interviews of people both sides. the filmmakers keep their distance all the time and let the people talk. a pretty grim story.

peltier is a self-taught artist and a writer, and has been twice nominated for nobel peace prize. president clinton refused to pardon him, perhaps obama?

Just finished watching Sweden beating Belarus in icehockey in the winter olympics and tomorrow morning (06.00) I´m up sheering for the Germans to beat the Fins in the very same group.

Ad: Well that didn´t happen. The Fins outscored the Germans with five goals to nothing, but hey, that´s just giving us a direct final battle between Sweden and Finland on sunday. And here in Sweden we just love to hate the Finish hockeyteams and I presume that it´s the other way around in Finland. So, God´s Speed to all of them who are to be involved!

The Swedish team taking on the Finish team in the icehockey tournament of the olympics. The Swedes are said to take a dive just to avoid the Russians or the Canadians in the quarter finals. Gee, I really hope they will not take a dive against the bad guys in the blue and white jerseys! The good guys in yellow jerseys just have to beat the Finish team and they are currently in the lead by one goal to nothing (score by Loui Eriksson).

If any of you guys out there are from Finland please don´t be offended. I have nothing against Finland and the Fins, this is just an icehockey issue.

Ad: 06.58 (Swedish time) 2 - 0 by Nicklas Bäckström!

Ad 2: 07.18 Sweden just managed six minutes in boxplay. Two of those minutes were five on three for the bad guys. Great game!

Ad 3: 07.21 3 - 0 by Loui Eriksson! This is so sweet!

Ad 4: 07.25 Pitkänen (bad team) got match penalty for a really stupid hit (cross checking right in the face on Patrik Hörnqvist, one of the good guys). Major penalty, five minutes.

End of second period

Ad 5: 08.12, end of the game. A rather dull third period where both teams seemed to be satisfied with the score. Both teams are through to the quarter finals.

What does the mysterious disappearance of record-breaking aviator Steve Fossett have in common with Area 51? In September 2007, Fosset went missing somewhere over the Sierra Nevada mountain range, sparking the biggest peacetime search and rescue operation in the history of the United States. Over the ensuing days and weeks, reports would surface of dozens of other missing airplanes in a huge triangular area of California and Nevada. Could this mysterious region be another Bermuda Triangle?

Yes they are! Con Gratulations. On their jerseys the Americans have a small patch near their left shoulder. Is that an insignia from the 1980`s jersey of "The Miracle on Ice-team"?

It was an interesting episode with that Nevada Triangle. Never heard of it before. A rather laid back and somewhat cool comment was when one of the persons said "You can fly the wrong way, which is down in the ground" as a reply to the question in what way those winds play any part of this mystery.

i've heard it's pronounced [sa:tan], with the first a being a long vowel. so it's differet thah in english, but in finnish that sounds almost like the word satan, lol.

yeah that was like "wtf?". that was a disaster, don't know what happened there. but hey it's just sport. :) i was actually just laughing when i watched it hehe, it was so funny, in a way. how everything can sometimes go totally wrong, just unbelievably so. haha
and hey, maybe the canucks will still kick your ass. :P
anyway, the most important thing is always to qualify higher than the sweedes do hehe - so, mission accomplished hehe ;)


anyway, if you compare the populations, i think it was quite great work for our team to finish up third:
USA over 300 million, finland a bit over 5 million. so population wise, it's like as if you'd have wisconsin alone representing the whole of your country (both finland and wisconsin have population around 5.3 million).

How To Save Water By Taking a Shorter Shower

Who comes up with this "advice"???  :oops:

I never understood how "low flow" shower heads save water, considering the lousy stream you get from them. It just makes it take FOREVER to get a decent rinse from them. Unfortunately, they're pretty much mandatory here in the U.S. now and you have to be rather clever to find a workaround.  :roll:

And what's with the bucket for house plants?  My water gets hot in a split second (certainly quick enough to scald me if I'm not careful).

As for two people showering at the same time... Ok, maybe it's "fun" for certain occasions, but how on earth could that be any more efficient when you're using some crappy lo-flo shower head that can barely keep up with one person?  

Anyway, if you REALLY want to save water, just don't bathe at all. Quite a few people in history have gone this route, with King Louis XIV of France possibly being the most famous:

http://ty.rannosaur.us/15-famously-filthy-people-from-the-pages-of-history (http://ty.rannosaur.us/15-famously-filthy-people-from-the-pages-of-history)


During the 72 year reign of Louis, France established an absolute monarchy, Versailles was built, and The Sun King waged war with everyone. Possibly hydrophobic, he refused to bathe unless his doctors forced him to and took two, possibly three, baths his entire life. He preferred to be dusted with scented powder and washed his face with a rag soaked in alcohol. Louis refused surgery on a gangrenous foot, leading to his death, and would lose chunks of it around Versailles.


Problem solved!  :-D

well, some of those advice might be ok depending on where you live/what kind of shower you have etc.
but some of them - i mean, "shower with a friend"? lol. what kid of video is that supposed to be actually?

of course the truth is that we should all learn to save water, just like all other natural resources too.
but i think the much bigger issues are caused by the way how big industries keep wasting and polluting water resources, often without any penalties at all. :? for instance textile industries consume horrible amounts of water:

http://wateruseitwisely.com/blog/miscellaneous/it-takes-1800-gallons-of-water-to-make-one-pair-of-jeans (http://wateruseitwisely.com/blog/miscellaneous/it-takes-1800-gallons-of-water-to-make-one-pair-of-jeans)

1,800 gallons (about 6800 liters) water for one pair of jeans  :eek: :? - well, that's a lot of showers.

http://ty.rannosaur.us/15-famously-filthy-people-from-the-pages-of-history (http://ty.rannosaur.us/15-famously-filthy-people-from-the-pages-of-history)


During the 72 year reign of Louis, France established an absolute monarchy, Versailles was built, and The Sun King waged war with everyone. Possibly hydrophobic, he refused to bathe unless his doctors forced him to and took two, possibly three, baths his entire life. He preferred to be dusted with scented powder and washed his face with a rag soaked in alcohol. Louis refused surgery on a gangrenous foot, leading to his death, and would lose chunks of it around Versailles.


Problem solved!  :-D

Yeah. :eek: I guess that's how they thought of blue cheese and all those other smelly types? :smth100
By the way I just learnt that when the first portuguese arrived in Japan in the 17th century as the first Europeans ever, one of the things they found worth enough to tell about when they got back home was that the japanese usually bathed ever day - whereas the Europeans themselves went on for months and months without a bath.
No wonder that the japanese used to called the portuguese "southern barbarians".

of course the truth is that we should all learn to save water, just like all other natural resources too.

this is an interesting document about

i just finished watching twin peaks once again, both seasons, all episodes.
took a few days ;) or actually a few weeks as i only watched one or two episodes at a time.

it would have been great if they hadn't resolved the palmer case at the end of the first season and had stuck to the original characters and their transformations and not introduced so many new ones.
nevertheless, the plot is irrelevant, the moments are everything. i still like the atmosphere of the series, the strange kind of "it's all inside your head" feeling, the re-occuring symbolism and characters that are both real and unreal at the same time.

The Russel Paradox in a simple way
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barber_paradox (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barber_paradox)

Suppose there is a town with just one male barber; and that every man in the town keeps himself clean-shaven: some by shaving themselves, some by attending the barber. It seems reasonable to imagine that the barber obeys the following rule:

He shaves all and only those men in town who do not shave themselves.

Under this scenario, we can ask the following question: Does the barber shave himself?

Asking this, however, we discover that the situation presented is in fact impossible:

If the barber does not shave himself, he must abide by the rule and shave himself.
If he does shave himself, according to the rule he will not shave himself.

i can't feel any sympathy for that bullfighter, because every bull that is forced to walk on the arena gets to die. if that is the deal for the bull, i think the bull has all the right to kill the bullfighter too.

a documentary called 'synth britannia'.
you can watch it here:

http://documentarystorm.com/music/synth-britannia/ (http://documentarystorm.com/music/synth-britannia/)

Documentary following a generation of post-punk musicians who took the synthesiser from the experimental fringes to the centre of the pop stage.

In the late 1970s, small pockets of electronic artists including the Human League, Daniel Miller and Cabaret Volatire were inspired by Kraftwerk and JG Ballard and dreamt of the sound of the future against the backdrop of bleak, high-rise Britain.

The crossover moment came in 1979 when Gary Numan’s appearance on Top of the Pops with Tubeway Army’s Are Friends Electric heralded the arrival of synthpop. Four lads from Basildon known as Depeche Mode would come to own the new sound whilst post-punk bands like Ultravox, Soft Cell, OMD and Yazoo took the synth out of the pages of the NME and onto the front page of Smash Hits.

By 1983, acts like Pet Shop Boys and New Order were showing that the future of electronic music would lie in dance music.

Contributors include Philip Oakey, Vince Clarke, Martin Gore, Bernard Sumner, Gary Numan and Neil Tennant.

..won't post any U-tuby stuff...., but just finished watching  "Gattaca".. with Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman.. I have it on DVD. One of my fav sci-fi pics.. Jude Law's first movie.. excellent movie , based on now current/future topics such as genetics, and how they WILL play a part in society/IVF/life insurance/personal capacity.. our lives will be dictated by the genetic dispositions that we all inhereit, whether or not we will ever succumb to these. Science fiction.. but sooo close to the next generation... employers being in control of our personal DNA, we, at their mercy , to depend on proving them wrong. Beautifully shot, Danny DeVito one of the producers.. I never get tired of this film. A stand out.
Echoes of George Orwell and Ira Levin... give it a go... enjoy!

hadn't seen these for a long time (some not since the original boradcast in the 80s), i've become totally captivated now.

the adventures of sherlock holmes
(currently in the middle of the third season:)

Τhε Rεsιdεnτ Ρατιεnτ 1/5 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6f2ICnT9Sgg#)

the first three seasons from 84-86 ('the adventures' and 'the return of sherlock holmes') are simply superb. if i had to name the best tv series ever, that would be it.
and jeremy brett is THE sherlock holmes, he was simply stunning in this. i can't believe he never got any awards or official recognition for his performance.  :?

as much as i generally do like robert downey jr., the recent guy ritchie movie was pretty terrible interpretation. it simply not sherlock holmes, it was just some dude with the same name.

Currently watching a part of the movie Contact:

"The question that I'm asking is this: Are we happier as a human race? Is the world fundamentally a better place because of science and technology? We shop at home we surf the web.. but at the same time we feel emptier, lonelier, and more cut off from each other than at any other time in human history. We're becoming a synthesized society.... In a great big hurry to get the next......"

I have no Netflix or other "streaming" services, but there are lots of good series around...

Currently I've been watching "Fargo" (year 3) - it's loosely based on the film of the same name, but with different characters in different stories and time frames (and mostly it's winter!).

A documentary about Ramstein 1988. You can watch it under
Disaster airshow Germany 1988 shok. It's in English and contains
a film sequence from below which I hadn't seen before yet. The interviews
are sensitive and stunning. In remembrance of the casualties.
