Internet Distribution


A friend and I were having a discussion recently.
I asked him what he thought the next method of distribution for films and music would be. My thoughts were that we would have to come up with some new method that was convenient, sturdy and didn’t involve compression (as CDs and DVDs do, thereby limiting the picture and sound quality, although not very much). He simply said that it wasn’t going to happen; in the future it’s all going to be distributed on the Internet.
I’ve heard this argument before. My grade ten IT teacher assured us that within five years (and this was four years ago) we would no longer be purchasing CDs. With the advent of broadband we were going to see purchases of music and movies online, streamed to the computer or another device...

iPod Movies – A Cinema In Your Hands

iPod Movies – A Cinema In Your Hands

Did you ever see that movie with Sir Anthony Hopkins when he was a primatologist and he was doing work out in the jungle when he befriended a group of silverbacks? Well, what happens is that these bastard gorilla poachers come by and attack the group. What do you know but, the gorillas and Hopkins(!) fight back and kill a couple of the poachers. He goes to an insane asylum and the great silverback goes to the zoo. Mind you, this thing was fierce and desired freedom more than any star and stripe waving, apple pie eating red-stater could even fathom. But, once he’s in the zoo for so long, when they finally open his cage, he’s too broken to attempt to walk out. Well, that’s like me. Blinking is sometimes too much effort.

But, just today I ran across s...

5 Movies From Your Childhood

5 Movies From Your Childhood To Share With Your Kids


Brand new movies are great!
It’s so much fun standing in line at the theater, breathing in the buttery popcorn smell, giddy with anticipation when a new movie is released.

My children love watching the latest and greatest movies, but I just grin when I hear my children singing the songs I used to sing as a kid – “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” or “Tomorrow”. Hearing their little off-key renditions is the best music to my ears.

Have you introduced your children to the movies you enjoyed when you were younger?

Movies: The Natural Way To Learn a Language

Have you ever wondered how it is possible that you can speak your native language so easily? When you want to express something, correct phrases and sentences just come to you. Most of this process is unconscious.

Stephen Krashen, a professor at the University of Southern California and a linguistics expert, has developed a hypothesis to explain how this is possible. He used his Input Hypothesis to design what he calls a “natural approach” to learning a language.

Krashen uses “input” in this context to describe the words and sentences that you read and listen to. If you understand these sentences, they are stored in your brain. More specifically, they are stored in the part of your brain that is responsible for language.

Krashen uses his hypothes...

Watching An Inspiring DVD

Find Inspiration From Watching An Inspiring DVD From Time To Time-It Is Good For Your Soul


With any dvd you will be able to find some sort of inspiration, just depending on your mood at that time in your life.
Looking back into my childhood I can remember watching many different types of movies and each one of those movies inspired me in one way or another and will continue to do so for many years to come. Everyone who does not already appreciate good movie making when they witness it should really start thinking about how much work is involved with any type of movie making.

There is a lot more to it than just throwing some people out there with scripts and paying them to sort of seem believable to their audiences...

New Golf Tip – How Mind-Movies Will Improve Your Golf Quickly


If you want to improve your golf game nothing will get you on the right track more quickly than well formulated Mind-Movies.
The good news is that you can at last get a really first class guideline on how to develop effective Mind-Movies.

A great deal is written about visualization in sport. A lot of it seems to center around the idea that what the sports person should do is visualize the result they wish to attain.

I do NOT agree with this.

I agree that it is a good idea to have objectives and targets and to visualize those objectives, but that it NOT the most powerful way to use visualization in sport, or indeed in any other area of your life.

In any aspect of our lives objectives only serve as a destination for your efforts...
