subject: Pan's Labyrinth

This is a must-see movie.  This is one that cannot be missed.  If you like movies that make you think, that have subtext, nuance, story... then this is one you want to catch.  Especially in the theater.

subject: Optical Illusion of the Day

    This is my new addition to the "Fact of the Day" and "Word of the Day" posts that I do.  If it's popular, I will attempt to find more to keep this going.  With that said here is the premiere of the "Optical Illusion of the Day".


The Illusion located at the previous link will show 12 pink dots aligned in a circle (think clock format) with a black "+" in the center.  One pink dot travels around the circle.  If you keep your eyes focused on the "moving" dot it nothing will change.  If you focus on the black "+" in the center the moving dot will turn green.  Focus long enough on the "+" (and nothing else) the rest of the pink dots will disappear.  Remember if you notice a dot or more disappear and you go to focus on them they will reappear, so stay focused on the "+".

subject: MODEL Update

    Well, the model situation has had its up and downs.  First, a show in England decided to keep rail thin models from participating in their biggest show.  Then, Spain banned models based BMI for the Madrid Fashion Week show.  Things turned for the worse though with the announcement of the anorexic-related death of a Brazilian model. As a result of that tragedy, one of the world's fashion leading countries has decided to do something as well.  Italy has adopted a new code in response.  Here's hoping that more countries follow suit.

subject: Money

    Todays theme boys and girls is in the subject line above.  There are all kinds of things that go on that involve money.  Some involve scams to take it from us.  Others include money that we should, as responsible voters, keep track of.  And finally there is even some that involve the dead.  I mean, the celebrities mentioned in the preceding article earn more each year while dead, than I will more than likely ever earn in my entire lifetime.

subject: Steampunk

Definiton:

1. A subgenre of Alternate History; this generally deals with advanced technology in the altered past.
2. Steampunk is a subgenre of speculative fiction, usually set in an anachronistic Victorian or quasi-Victorian alternate history setting. Fiction in the steampunk genre is set in the past, or a world resembling the past, in which modern technological paradigms occurred earlier in history, but were accomplished via the science already present in that time period. The genre typically falls into the realm of science fiction.

I was always was fascinated with the concept of Steampunk.  Complex machines in a bygone era, powered by steam instead of electronics and computers.  Apparently, I was not the only one:
