5 Most Iconic Brigitte Bardot Films

Bardot: the name alone drips with sensuality and evokes image of perfectly tousled blond hair, full lips, the bedroom eyes heavily lined in kohl and, of course, bountiful curves. Although her career only spanned about 20 years, her impact as a sex symbol and style icon is just as important today as it was during her 60s hey-day. While her recent activities have revealed a much uglier side to the great beauty, it’s only appropriate to celebrate her 80th birthday with a look at some of her most iconic and celebrated films.

How To Speak English To People Who Don’t Speak The Language

Once again, world traveler and globetrotter-extraordinaire, Logan Horsford is back with another guest post about life lessons that he has learned on his journeys.  A lot of these things will sound very obvious but after listening to hundreds of tourists attempting to communicate with locals, it is obvious that they are not.

Remember that even in countries where English is taught to kids, the kids don’t get to practice with locals and are often taught by locals. I’ve spoken to a few ‘English teachers’ that I had difficulty communicating with due to their strong accents and misuse of words. Hiring locals is cheaper than native speakers.

Of course, learning the local language or hiring a guide is better but if you are lazy and poor like me, there are some easy workarounds.

Madonna. Chances are you didn’t immediately think of the Mother of God when you read that, you were thinking of the Mother of Pop, who’s had a career spanning four decades, across almost every medium imaginable: acting, directing, writing, dancing, and, of course, singing.   It’s difficult to believe, but on August 16th, Madonna will be turning 56. However, like everything else in her life, she’s not prepared to fit any conventional idea of what a 56 year old looks or acts like. Always the “Queen of Controversy,” Madonna has created and courted her reputation as a rebel and rule breaker since the beginning of her career. So, in honor of her birthday, let’s look at her 5 most controversial moments. Read more…

Movies That Remain Unchanged If The Heroes Did Nothing

Luke SkywalkerA little while back, The Big Bang Theory ruined everyone’s view of Raiders of the Lost Ark when Amy Farrah Fowler tells Sheldon Cooper that Indiana Jones doesn’t matter in the movie.  People’s minds were blown because she was correct.  If you look at water in a brook, you know that it always finds the path of least resistance. If you put a rock in the way, the water goes around it or over it. It is as if the rock has no real determination in the outcome of the water’s progression. The same holds true for the heroes in these fan favorite movies. If they hadn’t been in the movie, would the final result have been much different? Is their existence that important? Let me know what you think…

Getting People To Come To Your Web Site

Getting people to come to your web siteI have been in the web business since 1998. In those years, I have found that the look and feel of your web site is not as important as getting people to visit and see what you have to say. You can have a web site that is a work of art, but if no one knows it exists, then it is a waste of your time. So how do you get people to visit your web site? The answer is pretty simple: you let them know who you are and where to find you. Implementing this can be a bit tougher, but here are some simple ideas to help you get started.

Are They Evil In Game of Thrones?

Game of Thrones, Season 4Game of Thrones is right around the corner and people are gearing up for the new season. After last year’s storyline, how could things get worse? Somewhere, I think George R.R. Martin is laughing at that thought. Things don’t seem to be going very well for the good people in the Seven Kingdoms and they are in store for more trouble, that’s for sure. One of the things we’ve seen in the previous episodes is that everyone is not as bad as we first thought. Some of the people you initially pegged as downright evil have some redeeming qualities and when you look at things from their point of view, they really aren’t all that bad. Here is my list of “good” people I thought were initially evil. See if you agree. WARNING: Spoiler alert ahead if you are behind in the TV series.
