$@!* Back to School

Posted By cutiepiekye on Aug 11, 2010 at 1:33PM

Just like the holiday season shouldn’t star until December 1st, no one should be allowed to utter the words “Back to School” until September 1st so as not to get in the way of my beautiful summer. Now everywhere I go its all about that returing to the flouresente lighted hell hole that is supposed to pass for an education. Well I’m sorry but relaxing on the various beaches of SoCal is FAR better than discussing the various social implications of the 6th Amendment. Not that lerning isn’t awesome, but I much prefer to sit and read in a window seat and go to a couple of classes a day (i.e. University) insead of the dullness of High School. But alas I have not one but two vacations planned before hell resumes and of course he one silver lining BTS SHOPPING!

Okay, so I am a huge fan of the Television show Avatar: The Last Airbender and it was kind of a big deal when I was in like 6th grade. When I heard they were making a movie my excitement went to Serenity level hopes (for those who don't know that’s a Firefly reference) and then things sort of went downhill from there. First when they announced that M. Night Shamalamananana was directing I got worried his movies all seem have the exact same plot. But with source material to work from I just expected it to at least not have his patented twist ending, then they cast Jessie McCartney as my favorite character...okay so now I’ll rent it, maybe. Then Dev Patel came along to raises my hopes and the films hotness factor, then that guy from Twilight had to come and crush them. Ah the list goes on and on!! Read why M.KS owes me 10$ below...

-When the show was on it had a loyal fan base of kids from 6-14 who are now like 12-20 your world’s biggest money spending bracket are big fans of your material and they are kind of easy to please. Just throw in a hot cast and a couple of explosions and your work is almost done for you.

- The TV SHOW!! Why oh why when given such epic source material would you f-it up!!! When hundreds of subplots for you to work from and a cast of really well rounded characters AND opening montage that explains everything that’s going on in under 45 seconds (!) would anyone but a complete sadist not use any of it. Instead M.KS decided to take the vague concept of the show and the world that they live in and keep all the main plot points of the first season but not try to string it together at all, the result was a rushed rambling mess that did not make one bit of sense.

Characters- In the Show the characters all had rounded personalities and internal conflicts that were balanced with other positive things. Most of them were all really freaking funny, too. So naturally all that had to go-along with the pronunciation of their names. The worst offenders-

Iroh- (pronounced I-row, not ear-row) was a jolly old man who would do anything for his nephew Zuko (a trying his best Dev Patel), and spout of punny wisdom at random strangers. Was turned into a jaded and bored older-guy who served no other purpose then to tell Zuko he needs a girl.

Aang- (pronounced Ang not, Aaaang or whatever) is a happy go lucky kid who likes to goof off but has the unfortunate responsibility of saving the world. Constantly spouting jokes and pulling pranks he rarely is ever upset. Well M.KS emo-ified the character making him incredibly unlikeable and in desperate need of a squeeze hug.

Sokka (pronounced Sock-a not Soak-a) - is really, really freaking funny. And an excellent strategist. He consistently saves everyone’s ass with his excellent plans. And he is really, really, funny. Where did that go u ask? I have no freaking idea!

Admiral Zhao- (The only name in the film that wasn’t messed up, or maybe they never said it…hum, curious) is one pissed Son of a Gun that will do anything to get ahead-but also comically never can. He is also a fire bender, that’s kind of important. He was played by Asif Mandvi, yup the Daily Show correspondent with the silly voice who is freaking hilarious. This guy was playing a BAMF. I don’t get it either.

Bending- in the universe the world has four tribes, each with their own guiding element- Water, Earth, Fire, Air. Some people can control and manipulate this element and this is called Bending. It has a big spiritual connection and their whole culture is built around it. The Avatar is the master of all four elements and is reincarnated into each culture. All this is explained in the first 45 sec of the show and is kind of important. Let’s leave it out.

Beautiful Destinations : Nisbet Plantation

Posted By Laura Trevey on Mar 4, 2010 at 2:01PM

I guess you could definitely say that I am a beach person! Before my art career took off, I was a travel agent for 10 years, and visited over 12 different islands in the Caribbean. I have started a series called Beautiful Destinations. In this series, I will document resorts which I have personally visited and highly recommend for your much needed vacation or honeymoon spot!

I will start with Nisbet Plantation Beach Club: an intimate Caribbean resort and hotel on the unspoiled island of Nevis - the island time forgot. The plantation's beautifully-restored 1778 Great House and 36 charming cottages are spread among 30 acres of lush tropical foliage. A casually elegant Nevis resort, Nisbet has been recognized as one of the best small luxury hotels in the Caribbean by the major travel magazines.

For me, Nisbet Plantation stands out from the rest with its 16 individual bungalows scattered throughout the property. This is privacy at its finest. A wonderful place to forget about the daily grind and relax in luxury... and it's even more beautiful in person! See more on Bright, Bold, and Beautiful!

Bahama Trip Boat Pics -end for now -we will go back again sometime....

Posted By Beachwalker on May 10, 2008 at 8:35AM

Over the two years, we made a lot of island friends, and other traveller friends. We had both sides of the family over on our little boat. We dove for food to supplement our stores, ie., rice, and canned goods, baked bread on a two burner kerosene stove, had cookouts on the beach and entertained and were entertained by friends, both rich and poor (only in spending dollars) like us. We became pretty good sailors, explorers, divers, hunters and foragers, and learned to live by our wits and skill, sometimes well, sometimes we learned the hard way. It was a great trip to do before we had settled down back to our middleclass lifestyle. No regrets, we broadened our perspective and we learned a lot.
