Marvel’s The Avengers crushed it at the box office it’s opening weekend and is now the highest grossing domestic movie weekend of all time at just over $207 million. The previous record holder had been our dear friend Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows- Part 2 at about $169 million who just got owned. The superhero ensemble film was the fastest movie ever to reach $100 million, $150 million and $200 million at the box office, enjoyed the highest per-theater average ever for a nationwide release with $46,057 per theater, and is currently rocking a 93% on Rotten Tomatoes. It’s almost as if these people knew that I was going to start blogging about the four basic personality types so they went ahead and made a huge blockbuster movie about it and decided to break a bunch of box-office records with it. Thanks guys. ‘Ppreciate it. Earth’s Mightiest Hero’s will not be the only nerd-gasm to behold on the big-screen this summer, as the film’s debut came with fresh new trailers for The Dark Knight Rises and The Amazing Spider Man. Web-head’s “origin-story-reboot” will be looking for cinematic redemption after Spiderman 3 cast Eric Foreman as Venom and was just generally epic fail. The movie stars Andrew Garfield as the titular webslinger while Emma Stone plays Petey’s main squeeze Gwen Stacy. Australian actor Rhys Ifans will be playing primary villain The Lizard. WHO IS your friendly neighborhood spiderman? A devoted Idealist.
All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost.
Nomad – synonym – wanderer.
She titled her book, “Nomad.”
For that was her ancestral origins — misleadingly put as “her genetics” — supposedly her “inheritance” and her culture.
But she was different. Something deep inside was different.
She had always read books, from the beginning as a child.
The final trailer has dropped for The Dark Knight Rises and I literally just got goosebumps. Ya. I’m a nerd. Christian Bale will be reprising his role as the caped crusader while bloody brit actor Tom Hardy will be playing primary villain Bane. Other newcomers include: Anne Hathaway as a mysterious Selina Kyle a.k.a. Catwoman, while Joseph Gordon Levitt plays John Blake or a possible Robin, and finally the beautiful Marion Cotillard plays Miranda Tate or a potential Talia Al Ghul. Big Boss Man Christopher Nolan has indeed done a good job keeping most of this stuff underwraps, as the film is his swan song to the Batman franchise. The film’s reportedly epic ending is on the utmost of DL, to the point that only Nolan and four other people know what it is. Why does this movie look so frikkin cool you ask? Because it’s about a good ol’ fashioned Artisan dogfight.
The day of reckoning is nearly upon us my dear friends as The Avengers drops this Friday and can be seen in 3D and IMAX at a theater near you. Pre-release tracking on the film projects Earth’s Mightiest Heroes to have the biggest domestic box-office opening of all time. Why all this huss and fuss, jibber-jabb, and riggamaroo over a silly film about a couple of guys in leotards you ask? Because the core concept of the story is that there are four basic kinds of people.
If I have seen a little further,
it is by standing on the shoulders of Giants.
We all know the quote. But often we don’t know the name of those Giants.
And she was not concerned that we know the true story, for in science, the shoulders are many and the results are what matter.
Newton’s giants were many: Copernicus, Galileo, Bruno, Kepler, Wallis, … But others were nameless.
Her giants included Newton, Haley, but also Annie Cannon.
And she was a giant, but who few know her name, for her almost contribution, or rather, her until recently uncredited contribution. For a man took that credit by publishing four years later essentially the same idea she had told him about — and that she deserved the real credit, for she was the first person to observe it and understand it. Moreover, she had the imagination not blinded by “conventional wisdom:” the scientific heterodoxy, which wasn’t really science at the time, anyway. Consensus science is never a science.
But she didn’t know that…
Happy Easter! The spring is officially upon us my dears and with it comes the grand opening of Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter in Leavesden, England, 18 miles north of London. On the heels of the smashing success of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando, our dear and beloved friends at Warner Bros. Studios have decided to make the place where the most successful film series of all time was shot available to the general public. In other words if you ever feel the urge to go hang out at Hogwarts Castle or Diagon Alley, you now have the ability to do so:
or Not To Be,
That is the question. Whether ’tis Nobler in the mind to suffer
The Slings and Arrows of outrageous Fortune,
Or to take Arms against a Sea of troubles,
And by opposing end them: to die, to sleep
No more; and by a sleep, to say we end
The heart-ache, and the thousand Natural shocks
That Flesh is heir to?
‘Tis a consummation Devoutly to be wished.
So why does she go on? Continue reading Going where others fear to tread
Game of Thrones is finally back and Thank the Gods because some of us have been waiting since Season 1 ended without eating food, sleeping, or going to the bathroom. Ya. It’s been rough. But the wait is finally over as HBO’s outrageously phenomenal epic fantasy series Game of Thrones returns for Season 2 this coming Sunday April 1st at 10/9c on HBO so strap your boots on folks ’cause it’s gonna be a good one. Funny thing about outrageously phenomenal series’ is that they tend to know whatsup. When I say know whatsup, what else would I be talking about other than the Four Basic Personality Types. And while we’re on the subject of the Four Basic Personality Types, let’s take a look at the Four Major Houses of Westeros.
We all know him.
Oh, maybe not by his face. Or even his real name. But we know him.
By his work.
Around the world. All us kids. You remember his stories. And his rhymes. His times. His rhymes. His times.
“We always have to ask ourselves whether the level of risk is worth the story. What is bravery, and what is bravado?”
“My answer then, and now, was that it is worth it.”
She did know the risk.
And she still took the risk.
Finally lost this time — and she was the story. The story was..
