Stupid dogs

Oricine merge cu bicicleta a fost cel putin o data alergat de caini. Nu prea ai cum sa scapi de ei in orasul asta plin de potai de toate formele si marimile. Daca bagi viteza incercand sa scapi de caini, risti sa nu mai fii atent la drum dar daca nu esti destul de rapid te poti trezi muscat... solutia e simpla: cand te apropi cu bicicleta de un grup de caini care sigur te vor alerga, trebuie doar sa treci pe langa ei foarte foarte incet si nici nu te vor baga in seama. Acesta a fost un anunt umanitar sustinut de Fundatia Nass Enterprises.Va multumim!

Sapte Seri - ep. 3

Webcomic: Question of size

Un episod foarte dragut de la ComicsCevaMarunt, care au lansat si o varianta in engleza a site-ului cu numele Question of Size. unde se vor publica in mare parte aceleasi comicuri de pe CEVAMARUNT, insa in limba engleza. Continutul va varia totusi asa ca puteti urmari ambele site-uri.

Smoking area

Solutia cea mai buna impotriva fumatului ar fi pretul foarte mare. Un pachet de tigari de 50 RON te-ar face in primul rand sa te gandesti de 10 ori inainte sa-ti aprinzi o tigara dar in acelasi timp te-ar face sa savurezi cu adevarat fiecare tigara, ceea ce ar impaca pe toata lumea.

Great Battles: Stalingrad

Intre 17 iulie 1942 si 2 februarie 1943 a avut loc cea mai mare si sangeroasa batalie a WWII, atat ca resurse, victime (peste 2 milioane de oameni au murit) si poate chiar si importanta. Daca Armata a VI-a Gemana ar fi cucerit Stalingradul (important centru industrial chiar pe malul Volgai) ar fi avut restul Rusiei la dispozitie. Pentru Stalin, caderea Stalingradului era de neconceput si si-a concentrat toate eforturile pentru a nu pierde orasul, reusind pana la urma sa inconjoare si sa elibereze orasul, redus doar la maldare de ruine.

Filmul Stalingrad (productie germana - 1993) urmareste evolutia unui batalion intreg de veterani germani din care nu mai ramane decat o mana de oameni care mor de frig sau dezerteaza. Un alt film foarte reusit despre batalia de la Stalingrad este Enemy at the Gates (2001) unde puteti vedea batalia din ambele perspective.

Nu sunt eu marele expert in blogging dar trebuie sa va spun ca ma doare ochiu' cand vad ce se intampla in blogosfera asta. Pe langa multitudinea de bloguri complet labarnice si neinteresante, vad tot mai multe bloguri unde cratima e o necunoscuta, nu zice nimeni ca nu poti scrie despre cacaturi dar macar scrie corect. Blogosfera a devenit intr-adevar o oglinda a societatii romanesti... nici aici nu avem scapare...

Wednesday Comics: Loyalty and Liberty

Loyalty & Liberty is an Educational Graphic Novel. It’s first goal is to educate about 18th century life, conflicts before, with in and the aftermath of the American War of Independence.

American Revolution affected a lot more countries then what history often teaches or focuses on, which is why there is no core cast in Loyalty & Liberty.

There are reoccurring characters though out the war and various stories but they are not the focus. The focus is on historical events and 18th century life as opposed to a set cast. They are for only showing the cast of characters social class, view point and political stances.

Vorbe mari de la oameni mici

Oare politicienii astia nu s-au plictisit de atatea vorbe?!? Sunt de acord ca le place sa se auda vorbind dar macar sa mai schimbe placa. Tot promit, promit, promit si nu se intampla nimic... mai bine sa promita nimic, macar asa isi vor respecta si eu cuvantul. Si cand ma gandesc de ce-o sa avem parte in campania electorala... le dedic tuturor o melodie deja clasica. PS; Inlocuiti cuvantul "tarfe" cu "politicieni" ca sa aiba si mai mult sens melodia!

Sticla de lapte

Muzeul Militar Roman

Am fost ieri la Muzeul Militar Roman "Regele Ferdinand I" (str Mircea Vulcanescu 125-127 harta aici) si am nimerit la aniversarea a 136 de ani de la prima unitate de radio-transmisiuni a armatei romane. Am urmarit manevrele unui pluton de infanteristi din WWII (entuziasti din Asociatia 6 Dorobanti) si am mancat la o popota autentica de campanie. Pe langa asta, curtea muzeului e plina de tunuri, tancuri, rachete, radare si alte chestii. In muzeu puteti urmari evolutia organizarii militare de la daci si pana la Revolutia din '89. Exista si o aripa dedicata aviatiei unde puteti vedea avioanele lui Henri Coanda, Aurel Vlaicu si chiar costumul de astronaut si capsula lui Dumitru Prunariu. A fost o experienta foarte interesanta si va recomand sa faceti si voi o vizita.

Sunday Morning Cartoon - Betty Boop

Betty Boop - Judge for a day (1935)

Betty Boop was created by Grim Natwick, appearing in the Talkartoon and Betty Boopseries of films produced by Fleischer Studios and released by Paramount Pictures.

Betty Boop made her first appearance on August 9, 1930in the cartoon Dizzy Dishes, in witch she looks more like a french poodle than with a human. Any Rags (1932) is the first cartoon where she looks completly human. The character was modeled after a combination of Helen Kane, the famous popular singer of the 1920s and Clara Bow, who was a popular actress in the 1920s who had not managed to survive the transition to sound because of her strong Brooklyn accent which nevertheless became a trademark for Betty.

Betty Boop is known as the first and one of the most famous sex symbols on the animated screen; she was a symbol of the Depression era, a reminder of the more carefree days of Jazz Age flappers. Her popularity was drawn largely from adult audiences, and the cartoons, while seemingly surrealistic, contained many sexual/psychological elements, particularly in the "Talkartoon",Minnie the Moocher, featuringCab Calloway and his orchestra.

Growing Up

Ce inseamna maturizarea?... Cand eram mic ma intrebam oare cum o sa fiu la 18 ani... wow... mi se parea un prag atat de departe si important. Pragul ala a venit si a trecut, nici n-am apucat sa ma intreb oare cum o sa fiu la 25 pentru ca si pragul ala a venit si a trecut. Maturizarea asta n-a prea functionat la mine. Are rost sa ma intreb cum o sa fiu la 30?... cred ca nu... mai am pana atunci 1.333 de zile si o sa iau fiecare zi pe rand. (Cum s-a nimerit tocmai azi sa calculez cat mai am pana la 30?...)
