Some women like the bad boy; the tall, great dressing, heart throb, wild child, sends chills down their….ummm, spine. Me, I run and I run fast in the opposite direction. They are great to look at, I'll give you that, but I definitely do not want them in my bed the next morning and definitely not in my life. Not that I'm perfect, it's just the arrogant prick is more of my personal preference.
It's Thursday night, and we are attending a function at one of the local hotels. I truly enjoy these events, everyone is rocking major style, the ambience is top-notch and the drinks flow easy (too easy). My girlfriend Lori likes to play matchmaker. She approaches me and says, "I want you to meet Raj." I shake his hand, reply with a hi and then run. The guy is young, impeccably dressed, his eyes are dreamy and he is 100% downright drool worthy. Raj continues to pursue, I continue to avoid him like the plague. About a half hour into our unintentional game of cat and mouse my tipsy little

In 1952 Dr. Jonas Salk developed the polio vaccine, Dwight Eisenhower was elected President of the United States, segregation in public schools was the norm, the diary of Anne Frank was published, "I Love Lucy" was the most popular television show, and on June 9, 1952, Wayne graduated from Hope College, picked some peonies in Zeeland, and joined the love of his life at the altar. Few of us can attest to a commitment like Wayne and Donna's 60-year marriage. As one of their 8 grandchildren, I have grown up around their love and devotion to each other, their family, and the Lord. This past weekend, after taking the Lake Express from Muskegon to Milwaukee and driving an hour to the small town of Cedar Grove, Wisconsin, I watched as my grandparents held hands and chatted with family and friends who came to celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary.Read More »from 60 Years and Counting

What Is Video Game Design?Read More »from COMBINE WORK and PLAY with a VIDEO GAME DESIGN CAREER
For anyone that loves and lives to play video games, video game design can be a dream job.
Video game design refers to planning, designing, and creating video games. Video game designers will often work closely with other members of a team to create video games for computers and video game consoles. Designing video games is a very specialized and challenging career.
Contrary to what some may believe, the majority of video games are not created overnight, or even in a few weeks. The majority of video games on the market today will usually take at least a couple of years to make.

What is Jewelry Design?Read More »from ADD a LITTLE BLING with a JEWELRY DESIGN CAREER
Every piece of jewelry starts out as a simple idea, then a simple design. Jewelry designs can be drawn on paper using pencils or pens, or they can be created with special computer software.
Jewelry is a type of accessory that humans have used to adorn their bodies for centuries. The first jewelry was most likely crafted from readily available raw materials, like bone and wood. With the discovery of precious metals, like gold and silver, ancient individuals began to create beautiful and ornate pieces of jewelry.
Originally, most types of jewelry were typically very time consuming and expensive to make, and they were reserved for only the wealthiest citizens. As precious metals became readily available and the process of making it became easier, jewelry became more readily available to the masses. Today, nearly everyone - young or old, rich or poor - owns at least one piece of jewelry.
There are several different types of jewelry, and each different type is
Although the newest addition to the Marvel Comics' cinematic super hero pantheon boasts superlative production values and a serviceable cast, "Hamlet" director Kenneth Branagh's "Thor" (** OUT OF ****) qualifies as nothing special. This preposterous, larger-than-life, 115-minute, PG-rated drivel shifts scenes between contemporary New Mexico and the legendary realm of Asgard where Norse royalty reside in Wagnerian grandeur. "Agent Cody Banks" scenarists Ashley Edward Miller & Zack Stentz along with "Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer" scribe Don Payne gave "Thor" their best shot based on a story by "Ninja Assasin" scenarist J. Michael Straczynski and "Poseidon" writer Mark Protosevich. Despite those best efforts, "Thor" amounts to an undistinguished 'origins' epic about Odin's arrogant offspring. No surprises lurk in this predictable, cookie-cutter opus about the famous hammer wielding Norse champion.Read More »from FILM REVIEW of ''THOR'' (2011)

You don't have to spend a ton of money on equipment or have a screen printing studio to make some pretty good quality prints.
I taught some friends how to reuse old picture frames and curtains to make screens, burn them in the sun, and clean them with a garden hose. While we were at it we took some pictures so we could share the lesson with you.

Step 1Gather up Your Materials
Materials you will need include:
The image you want to use. The best is to have your image photocopied onto a transparency at maximum darkness. You can also paint or draw with white out on transparent plastic (cellophane wrap or clear packaging from toys work). Another option is to make a cut-out with dark-colored construction paper or to lay some flat object (pieces of lace are nice) on the screen. Objects that aren't flat (skeleton keys, for example) can also work, but you have to move the screen around in that case to avoid a shadow.
You want your image on the
"The Public Enemy" director William Wellman tackles the issue of medical ethics in this blue-collar melodrama from Warner Brothers, "Night Nurse," (*** out of ****) about an unsavory quack trying to starve two vulnerable pre-school children to death to get his grimy hands on their trust fund. A young Barbara Stanwyck stars as the crusading nurse heroine who sets out to save the kids from the despicable likes of Clark Gable--in a loan-out role--as a slimy small time hood who has no qualms about slugging women. This snappy, Depression-era, 72-minute, black & white expose about hospitals and nurses qualifies as gripping but often sordid tale. Wellman doesn't foreground the usual romantic conventions by focusing primarily on the relationship between the heroine and the hero. The romantic scenes between Barbara Stanwyck and Ben Lyon as they flirt take a backseat to the subversive plot about children-in-jeopardy. Barbara Stanwyck's performance as a young nurse seems callow and uncertain atRead More »from FILM REVIEW of ''NIGHT NURSE'' (1931)

What is Costume Design? Simple masks worn by ancient Greeks during their productions were most likely the earliest types of costumes. As theater productions and characters became more involved and complex, however, so did other elements of theater production, including costume design.Read More »from GET BEHIND the SCENES with a COSTUME DESIGN CAREER
Up until the 17th century, for instance, women were forbidden from acting in theater productions. Because of this, the costumes before this time needed to be elaborate enough to make boys and men appear to be women, if need be.
Today, the art of costume design involves creating costumes and apparel for characters in plays and movies. Costumes typically need to be created in order to suit both the personalities and the roles of the characters. Realistic costumes should also look as though they fit into the time periods of the productions. For instance, if a play takes place in the 1800's, the costumes of the actors should reflect this.
What Does a Costume Designer Do? Along with make-up artists and hair
My favorite cinematic adaptations of costume-clad, comic-book, crime-fighters vary. The Christopher Reeve "Superman" (1978) tops my list followed by its sequel "Superman II" (1980), then "Iron Man" (2008), "Spider-man" (2002), "Batman Begins" (2005), "The Dark Knight" (2008), "X-Men" (2000), "X2" (2003), "Fantastic Four" (2005), and "X-Men: First Class" (2011). Interestingly, Marvel Comics has enjoyed greater success with their cinematic adaptations than their DC rivals. Since I grew up perusing DC Comics, I have a soft spot for DC heroes and their classic simplicity compared with more sophisticated but fascinating origins of the Marvel Comics mutants. Each of these films exhibits ambitious artistry and sets the gold standard for heroes, villains, and stories. Sure, the Michael Keaton "Batman" movies were entertaining, but "Batman" didn't reach the gold standard until Christopher Nolan took over the helm from quirky Tim Burton and middle-of-the-road Joel Schumacher. Typically, a greatRead More »from FILM REVIEW of "GREEN LANTERN" (2011)
