After living five decades in the colder climate of the northeast I knew it was time that my wife and I move south. The winters were taking their toll on me. I used to be able to work outside in the cold with just the protection of a sweatshirt. Now I am wearing a winter coat in October. We did not want to move all the way south where it gets too hot in the summer, so we started looking for nicer apartments for rent in Columbia SC. We had been slowly downsizing the stuff we owned clearing out each room in our house one at a time. Now we were ready to move.
We kept the things that were important to us. I started the cleaning out of the junk in our lives in the basement. Then I went and cleaned the attic. My wife helped me every step of the way. She had also resolved to get rid of things that were just sitting and collecting dust. Some things had a slight emotional attachment but most were just things we would probably never look at or use again. Read more…
Cours Florent, one of the largest acting schools in Europe with over 1000 students, has been considered for decades as the most professional drama school in France. Its monopolistic position, comparable to the State Conservatories, is lately threatened by a constantly decreasing quality of the courses and a larger number of competitors.
Cours Florent was founded by Francois Florent. It has gained its image thanks to the media attention and its famous alumni. Present at the television show at Canal +, Cours Florent starts to attract a number of students, from the age of seven for childrens workshops, teenagers workshops and the conservatory three- year program. The famous Free Course has hugely contributed to Cours Florents image, especially by the time Francis Huster, a famous French film actor was a part of it.
Most of the students go to Cours Florent because they dont know any other schools actually exist. If anyone who has no relationship to the theatre or drama training is asked if he knows a drama school, in absolute majority of cases, Cours Florent would be the only one named.
Today, such facts as Cours Florent having over one thousand students, the average number of the students in each group attending 30 or 40, the classes being limited to three hours compared to the common four hour courses with the majority of competitors; the individual approach to each student being difficult to accomplish; Cours Florent is loosing its monopolistic market position, giving place to innovative drama schools that have much to offer to a young actor.
The Cours Florent offers classes for students beginning at the age of seven, and offers children’s works, teenagers’ works, and a three-years program to learn acting. The school also has a specialized class to prepare students for the competitive examination of the prestigious Conservatoire national suprieur d’Art dramatique de Paris (CNSAD). But the Cours Florent is above all famous for his Classe libre (Free class) where many French actors and actresses have studied, with teachers like Francis Huster, Jean-Pierre Garnier, and Antonia Malinova.
For forty years the Cours Florent has trained
Female Bollywood actresses are very famous in India and all over the world. This is because of their striking beauty and talent. And when it comes to Female Bollywood superstars two names are on top of the list, Katrina Kaif and Kareena Kapoor. Both beautiful and talented but often compared.
Katrina worked as a photographic model before being an actress. She has transformed herself from not being able to speak Hindi to one of the busiest and sought after actresses today. She’s certainly grown from dubbing for Namaste London, to dancing Kathak for 7 hours nonstop and working as much as she can on her Bollywood career. In her relatively short span in the film industry, she already starred with some of the biggest filmmakers in the industry, dogged by controversy because of Salman Khan’s cases and for wearing a skirt in a place of worship. Which created a lot of controversy for her, first film was Boom.
Kareena Kapoor, from the legendary Kapoor family, a young star had an amazing debut as a young Muslim in Refugee by JP Dutta’s with kid star Abhishek Bachan last 2000. Even though the movie didn’t do great, Kareena was embraced by the viewing public immensely. From her first scene, the entire nation knew that superstar was born. Kareena began a journey of a lifetime like bollywood actresses that would lead to her to being a superstar. She was instantly signed by the biggest of producers even before her first film. She surprised audiences in her second film, Mujhe Kuch Kehna Hai. Unfortunately, Kareena also faced many controversies. Her choice of words, unintentionally sometimes offend people, but this is just her character and most of these incidents were just fabricated and her words edited. But t she never let this stop her instead she used these intrigues to her advantage and made her stronger. Saying “my work will speak for me.”
These only show that both are top actresses, with all theyve been true and where they are now. So there is no reason for us to compare them because they are
The year 2011 marks the 20th anniversary of the first Subspecies film. To celebrate the occasion, movie studio Wizard Entertainment has released the Subspecies Blu Ray 20th Anniversary Edition. This marks the first time that this film has been released on this media type. There has been great excitement in the films fan community about the Subspecies Blu Ray 20th Anniversary Edition release. The film is in the horror genre and stars Angus Scrimm, whom many cult horror movie buffs know from the Phantasm horror series. The basic premise of this horror movie is that there are students studying Romanian culture and they befriend a vampire, Stefan, who is in a power fight with his brother, Radu. Stefan falls in love with one of the students, but is forced to turn her into a vampire because Radu bites her and she is going to turn evil. In the end, Radu is killed.
You may be wondering where you can find the Subspecies Blu Ray for sale. There are many places where you can find it. For instance, you can find it on websites like Amazon and DeepDiscount. You can buy the Subspecies Blu Ray brand new for lower prices on these types of websites. However, if you do not mind buying the film used, you can always go to eBay or even use Amazons Marketplace to find used copies. You can find used copies in great condition for at least 50% off the price of a new one. That is not a bad deal at all.
Another gem for the horror movie buff is the Puppet Master series. In 2009, Wizard Entertainment released the Puppet Master Box Set to the market. These are horror films that have puppets as the main villains. Included in the Puppet Master Box Set were the films:
Puppet Master II
Puppet Master III
Puppet Master 4

And a 45 film trailer reel
A later release would include more films from this horror series, but this
Stand up comedians are granted a social license to say what we think but dare not say out loud. We love comedy because it recreates our experience of life and leaves us with the gift of laughter. Comedy holds up a mirror to the conversations that dominate our society and allows them to be.
Comedy allows us to poke fun at ourselves and to laugh at the intricate web of social norms that otherwise would remain unchallenged. We feel connected as our human foibles are exaggerated and parodied for us to see in their naked form. We revel in the stories of human dysfunction in full flight. Maybe it is because it makes us feel better about the unworkability of our own lives? Maybe we just want to be taken to the absurd so we can forget.
There seems to be an even more socially important function for comedy. I recently watched Jon Stewart discuss how the gun lobby�s fear of a possible dystopian future allowed us to ignore America�s dystopian present in reality. After lunging for the dictionary, I was reminded that comedy is best when it is not only funny but also true. It is no surprise that over the last few decades, news delivered with a comedic twist has become increasingly popular. Think late shows and late, late shows. News satire has become increasingly popular since its renaissance in the UK with shows like That Was the Week that Was in the 1960�s and the now popular Saturday Night Live style that became popular from the US in the 1980�s and still enjoys large audiences today.Now with David Letterman, John Stewart, Conan O�Brien and Jimmy Fallon, there seems to be no end to the demand for the style.
But where did it all begin? Though stand up comedy could arguably be traced back to the time of the ancients. The Vaudeville style, where a comedian talks to the audience as himself, was made more widely popular during the Second World War. Comedians like Bob Hope, Jack Benny and George Burns
If youre a fan of underground hip hop, theres no doubt youve been to at least a few underground hip hop concerts. How do underground hip hop concerts differ from mainstream hip hop concerts? Well for one, they usually take place in a much smaller setting, because underground usually connotes music that is less appealing to the masses, hence why less people would show up to an underground hip hop show than mainstream arena concert.
Furthermore, the fans at underground hip hop concerts typically have a stronger devotion to the music, and you can expect there to be a lot more energy in tight, crowded quarters. But underground hip hop concerts have nothing on the experience that is ICP in concert.
Seeing ICP in concert almost always happens more than once, because after you see ICP in concert once you know you want to be there again as soon as possible. From Faygo showers (just what it sounds like) and Juggalo paint to thousands of Juggalos and badass beats, seeing ICP in concert really blows traditional underground hip hop shows out of the water.
This phenomenon takes root in the fact that, Juggalo paint or not, Juggalos and Juggalettes are completely obsessed with the Insane Clown Posse, especially when they get to see ICP in concert. Theres so much love for ICPs in-concert antics that Juggalos paint their faces to imitate the Juggalo paint on the faces of ICP members Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope.
Decorating your face with Juggalo paint is pretty easy in fact, and should be learned by any underground hip hop fan looking to see ICP in concert some day. For an accurate Juggalo paint job, all you need is black and white oil-based face paint. Then have a friend trace the Juggalo face paint outline on your face. If you like it, fill it in!
There are plenty of Juggalo designs to choose from, but as long as the Juggalo paint design you choose resembles some sort of maniacal clown youll be welcomed by fellow Juggalos when you see
