For all you Hunger Games fans, let’s cut to the chase: Catching Fire, the second episode in the four-part adaptation of the book series, is superior to its predecessor in just about every way.
In case any newbies are wondering, yes, you’ll be completely lost if your Hunger Games indoctrination begins with Catching Fire. Hello Kitty, the fictional character designed by Japanese designer Yuko Shimizu, is one of the most popular subjects for kid’s coloring pages. Originally aimed at small girls, Hello Kitty has now gained immense popularity among older girls and even women. We came across an outstanding designer from Barcelona who visualizes and creates high quality, photorealistic renders of kids rooms. What we are aboutOur mission is to help people visualize, create & maintain beautiful homes. Follow us for a daily dose of outstanding homes, intelligent architecture & beautiful design.
The first time we saw George, our beloved Great Dane, he was no more than a tiny, cowering ball of fuzzy fur. She wanted a Great Dane as they make great family pets, so we tracked down a litter of 13, born 1,000 miles away in Oregon.
No matter how much we reminded ourselves that he had every home comfort (warm dog bed, warm blanket, warm kitchen, squeaky bone), each whimper created a picture in our heads of a tragic, abandoned pup, desperate for his mother. Paws for thought: George's giant feet dwarf Dave's handIn the summer of 2006, we solved this problem by buying him his own queen-sized mattress, which he still sleeps on today at the bottom of our bed. The trouble was, when our daughter Annabel arrived that September George made it clear he wanted nothing to do with this interloper.

12 YEARS A SLAVE is based on an incredible true story of one man’s fight for survival and freedom. The film also stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Paul Giamatti, Quvenzhane Wallis, Sarah Paulson, Paul Dano, Scoot McNairy, Garrett Dillahunt, Alfre Woodard, Dwight Henry, Michael K. The Shakespeare blog contains up to date articles about Shakespeare’s works, his world, and his plays in performance. Listening to the Audience now contains links to a series of clips of audio recordings I’ve made on several productions of Hamlet as a first step in my project to gather memories of Shakespeare in performance. The site’s updated several times a week and you can ensure you always get the latest posts by subscribing. The British Shakespeare Association is just launching a blog on the subject of Shakespeare and education, which will include the sort of thing you mention.
Sylvia, I just want to assure you how much I enjoy your delightful, well-written and informative Shakespeare Blog. Answer – none, except in the mind of the producer and the political agenda he wants to plug.
The RSC seem incapable of understanding European history and culture in anything other than a kind of muti purpose marxism.
So, does this latest production gives us a greater understanding of roman history, and the historical Caesar which presumably Shakespeare was interested in exploring? Sylvia – thanks for that but its really not accurate to say he uses the plays to comment on the politics of the age.
Richard II is often quoted in this connection and the depostion scene which is said to mirror the Essex revolt. Its far more accurate to say that the authorites used Shakespeare – clear not only in the RII episode but also in the propaganda reference to Essex in Ireland in the prologue to Act V of Henry V.
You will be aware that the magnificent processional cross at Holy Trinity was given by the Bensonians in memory of their colleague Frank Rodney. Also one of the side chapels contains Rudyard Kipling’s tribute to the actors who had fallen in the Great War. I’ll be writing a post on the processional cross and the stories surrounding it in a few weeks so keep watching! I recall seeing the RSC videos at the BFI somes years ago, and they are still very impressive.
And later, there was the magnificent English Shakespeare Company Henries and Wars of the Roses to complete the cycle.
Hi Sylvia, This is a fantastic and informative blog with a diverse range of articles – many thanks for running it!
Any support from anyone would of course be greatly appreciated as I hope this project will revolutionise the way in which young people engage with Shakespeare! As a Shakespeare scholar who writes fiction secondarily, I loved finding a blog devoted to Shakespeare that got its facts right, and joined immediately.
As an actor in NYC your thorough knowledge of the Bard and the people around him is a wonderful source for the avid theater goer and the aspiring actor alike. I wondered if there is any particular reason as to why my last comment is “awaiting moderation”?!
An exhibition at the Library of the Royal Society of Medicine to mark the 450th anniversary of the birth of William Shakespeare. I wanted to write to you to say a huge thank you for your blog, I have just graduated this month from the University of Kent with a First in my Drama and Theatre Studies degree. Clearly the man was the greatest mind writer of the English language the world has ever known.
Hi, I liked your piece about Davenant’s Shakespeare adaptations and the surviving 17th Century wallpaper (Sir William Davenant and adapting Shakespeare, Restoration-style). Recently Sterling Library at Yale added a fantastic two-volume exposition to its permanent collection that many are calling the best work ever on the Bard. In your blog Remembering the days of Empire: The Shakespeare Memorial National Theatre Ball, 1911, 27 October 2014, you have a picture of a completely different event that happened at the Royal Albert Hall. We had an event called The Shakespearean Show, in aid of the Chelsea Hospital for Women, 28-30 May 1884 in which they built a little village in the middle of the Hall featuring Anne Hathaway’s cottage and Stratford Church. Sure, it faithfully aligns with the book and safely plays to the franchise’s core audience. The stilted anticipation manufactured in the first movie (saved by Lawrence’s frightened desperation) is ditched for a quick plunge to the game surface where confusion rules the first minute.

Complementing the brisk pace and compact script by Simon Beaufoy (Slumdog Millionaire) and Michael Arndt (Toy Story 3), director Lawrence lets star Jennifer Lawrence bring any real emotion to Catching Fire, shooting her in closeup and letting her do the work. The female Japanese bobtail cat wearing a pink-blue dress along with a cute red bow on her white head gained popularity fast after it was first introduced in Japan in 1974.
At present, the character features on a wide range of products starting from school supplies and kid’s merchandise to wallets, fashion accessories and other high-end consumer products. We bring to you inspiring visuals of cool homes, specific spaces, architectural marvels and new design trends. Cakes normally contain a combination of flour, sugar, eggs, and butter or oil, with some varieties also requiring liquid and leavening agents.
As my wife Christie opened the door of the crate hea€™d travelled in, he teetered to a standing position and looked out at us, moving his head slowly from side to side, taking in the wonder of it all. Their owner emailed us a photo showing a chaotic jumble of paws, snouts and tails.Twelve were entangled with one another, but our eyes were drawn to one pup standing apart from the rest.
Our local park had a section for puppies but we were bullied out of it by other owners, who were scared George would hurt their pups, a€” but the opposite was true. In the pre-Civil War United States, Solomon Northup (Chiwetel Ejiofor), a free black man from upstate New York, is abducted and sold into slavery. There are over 500 articles to choose from, and in the past year it has received over 160,000 page views from 105,000 different people. You can begin browsing by choosing a category from the list on the right. Ever since then people have adopted his work in order to forward their own political agenda, and it’s extraordinary how the same play can be used to promote multiple points of view. There seems to be an explosion of interest in Shakespeare just now and for me it’s a great antidote to the sporting side of the Olympics. Presumably they were filmed in the studio, and I wonder if this experience led the director of the filmed Wars of the Roses to insist these should be filmed on stage? I have been doing everything I can recently to make Shakespeare more accessible for young people, partly by performing rap versions of the stories to give them a contemporary slant.. Moreover, in a day when the Internet teems with poorly crafted articles that ignore the rules of rhetoric, it is well-written.
This exhibition of books from the Library of the Royal Society of Medicine is intended to mark the 450th anniversary of Shakespeare’s birth. During my degree I took part in all of the Shakespeare related modules that I could get my hands on. We are trying to bring the two characters into the public sphere and teach people about the play. It raised a lot of money for charity and I would be happy to give you more information about it. There’s a blinding sun and disorienting surroundings – with her senses smudged, our heroine can barely catch her breath and neither can we.
While in the midst of the games, we see most of author Suzanne Collins’ threats come to life; none are remarkably creative (beware the vicious primates!), but all contribute to the sense of doom. It’s important because the cast interpretations range from flat (Lenny Kravitz, I still don’t get it) to goofy (Stanley Tucci as TV host Caesar Flickerman) to quietly evil (Hoffman, far more skilled than many here).
And many of you will, if the first film’s popularity is any indication ($690 million at the worldwide box office). The character made its debut on a designer vinyl coin purse which was the first of many similar items that featured the white bowed cat later. The immense popularity of the character even gave rise to various children’s television series, making Hello Kitty a household name among small kids.
If you come across any awesome kids rooms that you think need to be featured here, please mention them in the comments. A finished cake is often enhanced by covering it with icing, or frosting, and toppings such as sprinkles.
Finally, as if weighing us up and deciding we were acceptable, he tentatively pushed his little nose forward and gave Christie her first lick. We certainly never dreamed he would one day become the biggest dog in the world, standing nearly 4ft high at the shoulder, 7ft long and weighing nearly 18 stone. He was clearly the runt, endearing him to Christie immediately.George made the long journey from Oregon to Phoenix by plane and we picked him up from the freight area, tired but unshaken. The smaller dogs ran around and under him, and hea€™d be constantly sidestepping them, obviously anxious and jittery.
Once he had grabbed life by the lapels, now he was grabbing onto legs a€” table legs, chair legs, human legs, he wasna€™t picky a€” and doing what all male dogs do with the vigour of a canine giant.
Facing cruelty (personified by a malevolent slave owner, portrayed by Michael Fassbender) as well as unexpected kindnesses, Solomon struggles not only to stay alive, but to retain his dignity.
There is plenty of evidence that comment (outside the religious domain) was in fact a lot freer than it is now when we are not allowed to question liberal shibboleths in the media which are now virtually government mothpieces. The government lawyer, Bacon, was in fact ordered to prepare a (false ) statement that Essex had arranged for a performance of RII to.. I also wanted to let you and your readership know about some Shakespearean work that’s being done on the canvas to some acclaim.
I agree it’s great that the ESC cycle was also filmed and is I imagine still available. The sonnets are rather indigestible if you try to read too many in a sitting so doing it over a period is a great idea!
Almost all of the books on display were published in Shakespeare’s lifetime, and show many of the medical preoccupations of the age, liberally juxtaposed with quotations from the plays and poems. I love performing, watching, reading and discussing Shakespeare and I referenced articles from your blog countless times in my written work and essay papers. Writing a blog is strange as you never know if anybody is actually reading any of it, and to be honest I do because I enjoy the research. Director Francis Lawrence (I Am Legend) aims his sights at a broader action-adventure audience with an uptick of intensity, improving on the surprisingly tame approach Gary Ross took with the first film, which catered to a younger group of head-nodding Hunger fans.
The sinister President Snow (Donald Sutherland) needs a plan to squelch trouble, and calls on his trusted companion (Philip Seymour Hoffman) to devise a new Hunger Games that will stomp on the proletariat pride like Khrushchev’s shoe on a bug.
By the time the opening horn sounds, the excitement is palpable, accomplished with more efficiency and less fanfare than the original Hunger Games. As alliances form, including newly added players Jeffrey Wright and Jena Malone, the action gains a touch of gravity in which combatants are pitted against the all-controlling game makers instead of one another, a microcosm of the oppressive conditions outside the arena. As Katniss, Lawrence shows she can legitimately carry a film’s weight when the part’s right.

Funny that a story about the helpless huddled masses is adored and embraced by a blindly loyal following. Hello Kitty was brought to the US in the year 1976 and received immediate positive response from the target market. They love Hello Kitty coloring pages as these allow them to spend some quality time with their favorite cute bobcat while playing with colors and shades.

Cake makers create unique and creative cakes to attract new customers, and we have collected some unique and creative cakes around world. Right now, he just looked bewildered.He came into our lives in January 2006, just a few months after we had married and set up home in Arizona. As soon as George settled into our home, we discovered our plans to be fair but firm parents were wishful thinking. As well as a photo album, he had a growth chart a€” we were soon reading it in awe.At five months he still acted like a puppy, chasing his tail and playing games of fetch and tug-of-war with his favourite bit of rope.
He calmed down in the furniture department after we had him neutered, but then he took up a new hobby, eating as if it were an Olympic sport.A sausage on the barbecue was like a siren to a passing sailor.
In the twelfth year of his unforgettable odyssey, Solomon’s chance meeting with a Canadian abolitionist (Brad Pitt) forever alters his life. Shakespeare was far more engaged by the whole question of reflecting on what history and time are and what is the part played by man, particularly great figures, in shaping that history. I’m interested in the fact that his work can be recreated, live, and also on film and radio, to inspire new generations and audiences. I am currently in a production of Hamlet that is going in Rep with Stoppard’s Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are dead.
Hamlet’s daughter Femlet Dane was being groomed by her father to become the CEO of the company, but her uncle has other plans. This was a great period for books published in the vernacular and therefore more accessible to a lay public, so much emphasis is given in this exhibition to works written in English, or translated into English. If I wasn’t sure about something then your blog is where I would search for the information.
Once I put my mind to it I’ll bet I can get a novel, or at least a whimsical essay, out of this. They can try to recreate the blue-pink combination of her dress or use their coloring skills to produce new coring styles. All the things that make Great Danes wonderful pets a€” their lack of aggression and their attachment to humans a€” make them more emotionally sensitive than other dogs.They need to be with their a€?packa€™ at all times and at night the cute pup with intensely blue eyes turned into a caterwauling banshee whenever we tried to leave him alone in the kitchen. But he was already the size of a fully-grown Labrador.He was putting on more than a pound a day and he bounded around like Bambi, skittering on our wooden floors and hurling himself at everything he fancied, including us humans.
Once it was clear the racket was going to continue, hea€™d exhale heavily again, till one of us finished that mysterious feeding thing we did with the noisy intruder.But while he might not have cared much for Annabel, George loved her dolls, especially a stuffed green one that played a nursery rhyme when squeezed. I’m seeing the beauty and difficulties as is the rest of my cast at The Seeing Place Theater that you talk about with each blog.
An inward morose woman everyone assumed this was just the way she was, but she has a dark secret. I am now saving every penny I have to do a Masters degree in Acting, as my life goal is to become a respected classical actor. His displays of affection could leave you pinned temporarily against a wall or a piece of furniture. Hea€™d growl anxiously at the side of our swimming pool, alarmed that his a€?packa€™ members would so willingly place themselves in danger of drowning.If the pool was his most-hated place, his favourite was our bedroom. And he was so tall that he actually had to bend down to pinch food off kitchen counters.He could reach the high shelves as well, so we had to hide everything away in cupboards. She is devastated at the unexpected death of her beloved father and incensed over her mother’s marriage to her uncle. I already know where I will be looking for inspiration when I (hopefully) start to study on my Masters course. Eventually he outgrew the single mattress we placed there for him and preferred instead the comfort of our king-sized bed a€” sprawling between us like some over-indulged prince while we spent half the night clinging onto the edges. Soon, he was getting through around 100lb of dry dog food every month.As he approached his first birthday in November 2006, weighing about 14 stone, it was getting physically impossible to make him go anywhere he didna€™t want to a€” including the veta€™s surgery. He had not forgotten the time he went there in possession of his manhood a€” and came out less than whole.
It was a period of such big adjustment for him that if it made him happy, then it was fine by us and our patience was rewarded.Slowly, George understood that Annabel was our packa€™s youngest member and in need of his affection and protection.
And on Christmas morning, he ended his three-month sulk, acknowledging her presence with a lick of her hand. It was the best present we could have had a€” although the beginning of 2010 brought more good news.
Over the previous weeks, while Annabel slept, Christie had applied to the Guinness World Records people on Georgea€™s behalf. That February, one of their adjudicators came to watch George being measured in the presence of a vet. He was officially declared not just the worlda€™s tallest living dog (43 inches from paw to shoulder) but the tallest dog ever.The following week we flew to Chicago to appear on the Oprah Winfrey Show and were put up in one of the citya€™s most luxurious hotels. A male Great Dane typically weighs from nine to 11 stone, but by Christmas 2007 George weighedA A  15 stone a€” bigger than most men. At this point, he loved being chauffeured around in my golf cart and would sit in it, his haunches on the seat and front legs on the floor.
There was nowhere for George to sleep.As we enjoyed a gourmet meal and a bottle of red wine that night, he struggled to settle on two roll-out divans provided for him. A friend suggested he might be a contender for the Guinness Book Of Records, but we had other things to think about: Christie had discovered that she was pregnant again. So he had his head on one and back end on the other, but his stomach was sagging onto the carpet.a€?You know what we need to do,a€™ I joked.
He still spends his days doing what he has always liked best: eating, playing and sleeping.
