A Letter To Momo Official US Release Trailer 1 (2014) - Animated Movie HD



Clinging to an unfinished letter written by her recently deceased father, young Momo moves with her mother from bustling Tokyo to the remote Japanese island of Shio. Upon their arrival, she begins to explore her new habitat, meeting local children and learning their routines and customs. However, it's not long before several bizarre occurrences crop up around the previously tranquil island. Orchards are found ransacked, prized trinkets start disappearing and, worst of all, each morning after her mother leaves for work, Momo hears strange mumblings coming from the attic of their home. Annoyed by these creepy goings-on and her mother's refusal to believe them, Momo embarks on a strange and supernatural adventure to discover the source of the mischief, which leads her to a trio of troublesome imps: the flatulent lizard Kawa, the childlike Mame and their hulking ogre leader Iwa. Momo also learns that her visit to the island is in some way connected to her father's mysterious letter.

Miss Hokusai - Trailer (English subtitled)



Miss Hokusai is a "slice of life" animation, it portrays the characters' at their daily lives in briskly light mood. It may set in one of the most romanticized eras, yet it's mostly a few short stories about artists, especially the heroine Oei, woven together. This is a tribute to Japanese classic painting ukiyo-e, the tumultuous time told in different light and appreciation of the artists themselves.

Oei is the daughter of talented painter Hokusai, who has a knack for painting herself. She can be crude at times, but she gives of warm subtle kindness, especially with her drawings. There's no great dilemma or adventure, although it presents a few strange mysteries. The animation is more of a method to appreciate the art as it changes constantly when the characters do narrative or monologue.

It uses classic touches on the tales, which can seem supernatural yet bizarrely fitting for that particular era. The setting is made with great care, details like the street corner or dimmed room with faint light of candles provide fine atmosphere for these characters to play in. Occasionally, they would talk in vague words, it's not a drama where people yell at each other frequently, there's a restrained on their mannerisms.

The last reboot was pretty good, definitely watchable and really fun voice acting, characters, so I was worried this one wouldn't be as good, but surprisingly- IT's BETTER. I mean, definitely on par with something like Young Justice or The Thundercats reboot (which it's fucking CRIMINAL did not get a second season, hey netflix, why don't you reboot that too!)

It seems there are three distinct parts to this question.

The player isn't following his character sheet
RPGs are games. Games are played for fun. Something about the character as written on the sheet isn't fun for your player. He is thus ignoring the sheet and doing what he considers fun. Here are some options.

Talk to him about playing a role.
Modify his character to be more in line with his play style. This can potentially be a very memorable journey to the dark side.
Have him change characters to be more in line with his style. This can involve a dramatic sendoff for the previous character.
Enforce in-game consequences for his actions, particularly when they go against alignment. In games like D&D, classes such as clerics, paladins, and druids lose their powers over stuff like that."

star wars - When Did George Lucas Make Up the Stuff About the Sith and Midichlorians? - Science Fiction & Fantasy Stack Exchange

star wars - When Did George Lucas Make Up the Stuff About the Sith and Midichlorians? - Science Fiction & Fantasy Stack Exchange: "Midi-chlorians were first conceived by George Lucas as early as 1977.

In this time the first Expanded Universe products were being created, including the ongoing Marvel Star Wars series and Alan Dean Foster's novel Splinter of the Mind's Eye. Lucas sat down with a member of his staff, Carol Titelman, to dictate a number of guidelines for these works, explaining various concepts of his universe.

Amongst them were an explanation of midi-chlorians, which Force-sensitive beings were said to have more of in their cells. (source: The Making of Star Wars: The Definitive Story Behind the Original Film)

However, Lucas did not feel he had the time to introduce the concept of midi-chlorians. The idea would not appear in any Star Wars product for twenty-two years; Lucas chose 1999's Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace as the opportunity to first mention the midi-chlorians, explaining why some were sensitive to the Force while others were not, an issue that he had left unresolved since the original film Star Wars

...

That Lucas had planned the midi-chlorians as far back as 1977 was hinted at on the DVD commentary of The Phantom Menace, but the details would not be fully revealed for another eight years, coming to light in the 2007 book The Making of Star Wars: The Definitive Story Behind the Original Film, the hardcover edition of which had, amongst its appendices, Lucas' notes for the Expanded Universe authors."

Flashdance - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Flashdance - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "Flashdance is not a musical in the traditional sense as the characters do not sing, but rather, the songs are presented in the style of self-contained music videos. The success of this film is attributed in part to the 1981 launch of the cable channel MTV (Music Television), as it was the first to exploit the new medium effectively. By excerpting segments of the film and running them as music videos on MTV, the studio benefited from extensive free promotion, and thus established the new medium as an important marketing tool for movies.

In the mid-1980s, it became almost obligatory to release a music video to promote a major motion picture—even if the film were not especially suited for one.[17] An example from the era is the song and music video "Take My Breath Away" from Top Gun (1986), also from Flashdance producers Don Simpson and Jerry Bruckheimer. Giorgio Moroder composed "Take My Breath Away" and several of the songs for Flashdance."

Dance lessons? Because you're obviously bad at expressing yourself!

Dance lessons? Because you're obviously bad at expressing yourself!:



Let me start the begining, like all stories:

One of my best friends is a lesbian and she told us [a group of close friends, 
about five of us] to come with her to a 'cleansing' is what she called it. 
I find out later on, she was instructed to not tell us what it was about, 
and that she needed to be very vague about it when inviting us.

When visiting the forum, there were some very odd things I noticed, and from 
reading many of the chilling posts, and on other sites about The Forum
[landmark] and it's clone companies, there are many many similarities and 
many of us [of course, not her] got very bad vibes from all of this.

We were told the prices [which being a frugal person, I right off 
the bat was like.. fuck this, community counseling is free if you REALLY 
need help, and sometimes if there's a study they even pay YOU]..

Right off the bat this uber - charisma guy takes the mic is is running 
around asking is people need positivity in their life, and want 
positive change; he kept mentioning about 'the unlimited potential 
that people have' and 'we can help you reach your ultimate potential' 
'great sex life' 'more energy' 'self fufillment' .. etc - it just 
seemed almost like a church service without the faith. I'm not a very 
religeous person and so large groups of people with obvious 'zealot' 
looks in their eyes make me extremely nervous.

After hearing an 'empowerment speech' as they called it, we heard 
two major sob stories.. a lady who was abused by her father [total 
plant] and a young stoner-esque couple who got back from "the best 
experience of our lives on the wisdom vacation" [again, I'm 100% sure 
they were actors] - the guy took the mic again and was like.. why 
don't you take a break and sign up for the begining course because [get 
this] - you can't commit to changing your life, without a down payment.

No no .. SERIOUSLY - he said this! That your life doesn't start
to change unless you actually put the money down, because money speaks 
more than words.. anyone can say 'I'm going to join.. and go home 
and forget' but 'commitment' requires a down payment. 

Next we were told to speak to the person who brought us, and ask them why 
we should be here, and why we need help. [I'm more than self critical, and 
I really don't need someone else "projecting" why I need help onto me..] 
and then we were all instructed to sign up for the begineer courses..

Gold name tags everywhere, lined the walls, watching the crowd as if 
observing our body language, and constantly asking 'are you okay' or 
'how are you doing? can I sign you up' .. etc.

There's a pen under all of your seats, the man at the front said as 
he continued to give another 'empowering speech' and then said, let's 
take another break - and ask your friend, why do you think I need help? 
[again, pretty much the same thing, more signing up, without giving us 
any idea of what we were signing up for] yet - people REALLY did sign 
up and I just can't seem to understand why.

At this point, I was done.. and my friend and I decided to go outside
for a breath of fresh air [a cig for him, a clove for me] and I 
noticed several others leaving as well to go outside; then the two 
'plants' (the stoner/hippy couple) came outside, bummed a cigarette and 
tried to 'play nice' with the circle of smokers over in another corner 
outside and inflenced a few of them inside; smokers being naturally 
cynical most of them were not convinced and many of them walked away.

My friend Steve and I discussed some of the strangeness we felt, and 
some of the odd behavior as well as the excessive number of 'volunteers' 
that they had - later I found out the only person who made any money [and 
who collected all of the cash from our signups was the big man at the front].
All of the rest were 'volunteers' who 'got more out of it, than they put in';
there were over 30 volunteers - this really struck me as VERY wrong and 
just didn't add up. We basically weighed the descision of leaving,
not so much in the idea that we would disappoint or upset Landmark 
Forum - but more the fact that a good friend [and a roommate of his] 
was the one who invited us, would probably be pissed or "disappointed"
in us - mainly because she's obviously fallen in so deep to this
kind of trap, and we were NOT buying it. [Plus who can afford such treatment?]

We decided if we needed this 'help' so bad, we could probably get it
from a weekend trip to skiing or a hiking trip, and smoking a lot of 
pot or a bottle of whiskey and sharing stories. Friendship is stronger 
than any cult-esque training program, and it's definitly has opened 
my eyes - it's the new religeon without religeon - it's being a zealot 
without having any faith, it's as empty as the soul and the Landmark 'secret' 
- you're supposed to get 'it' = life is empty and meaningless; 
and it’s empty and meaningless that it’s empty and meaningless.

This is BULLSHIT. 

Life is NOT empty, my life is full of fun, laughter, joy, sadness, 
hatred, sin, virtue, and everything that makes us human.

Life is not meaningless, if it is - why not just kill yourself? If you 
really believe that life is empty and meaningless than why do you 
care to help yourself, or help others, or in that vein: even to live?

Perhaps Landmark wants people to believe their lives are empty and 
meaningless, and through their rigid repression of past guilt [which we 
all know from our intro to psychology class is a BAD THING], excusing 
people and allowing them to wallow in self pity, and the worst is 
that these financial and emotional leeches are expanding to other 
parts of the globe and people are signing up by storm.

Their methods of recruitment are entireley suspect, going through
emotional channels of friendship and family, using these weaknesses to 
bring people inside with the promises that all of their needs, desires,
and potential can be fufilled for only the low price of X dollars 
is ridiculous. People say, they are more authentic and down to earth,
because they don't advertise - well, advertising you can always 
ignore or choose not to look at, there's places or advertising - 
but something like this, sneaks under the wire, under the defenses and 
uses word of mouth for it's own profitiability, because everyone 
knows word of mouth if more believable - especially if it promises all 
that which is almost undeniably desired.

Most people don't know about the roots of the Landmark Forum, 
or other subsects [Lifespring, Life Change Inc, Life Awareness Seminars, 
etc] - but the original writer was a Scientologist, an OT-5 [or "clear", 
the highest known rank the church has]; he developed a rigid, brainwashing 
method by depriving people of sleep, movement, bathroom breaks, etc while 
he would shatter their emotional and mental state over the period of an 
entire day (when the mind is tired, the mind is weak; when the body is weak, 
the mind is weaker - Ichigo). These people use your weakness and the chinks
in your emotional armor in order to recruit you and make you feel as if you
are weak, inferior [on a mental, emotional, and spiritual level], then they
dangle a promise of paradise and fufillment in front of your eyes. 

"The world is in your hands.." we were told by one person who had completed 
the course and was a current volunteer. So why wasn't HE running a course?

Werner Erhard [aka: John Rosenberg] originally developed the 'technology'
using a hodgepodge of mostly scientology high level "training techniques" 
[also known to many cult awareness websites, the best being Rickross.com
as 'brainwashing'], zen abusive training, mental weakening, and basic common
sense wrapped up in enigmatic cloak of bullshit and circular logic. His 
training was known as EST [Erhard Seminar Training] also convieniently 
named "est" or latin for 'it is', and promises to help people get 'it' which
no one ever does. Did I mention that Erhard has NO training other than scientology,
self study of 'get rich quick' style books, and was a car salesperson who had a
wife and four children he couldn't support, so he fled from his town to another
and changed his name- promising almost a million people that he could 'save' them.
Doesn't that sound like most corrupt evangelical pastors who raise money on TV?

Empty promises and a billion dollars later, Werner Erhard/John Rosenberg 
sold the company (and his 'technology') to his scientologist brother, Jack Rosenberg
and fled the country, and his brother renamed the company Landmark Education Corp.
(LEC), and a public name - The Landmark Forum, or know by the 'successful zombies'
who have left their jobs and families to work for the company, as "the Forum".

Many experts who have investigated and studied Landmark and EST as the root company,
believe that Landmark is still run by Erhard, using his brother as a CEO puppet.

As you continue to work for the company, with time you will 'get it', and 
eventually will become a part of their pyramid scheme, bringing more and more 
people to the groups for 'help', and perhaps one day become a leader who will
travel the world and teach people of their 'problems' and continually recruit 
people from all walks of life, and probably make a decent living at it. 
If you feel like cheating people out of their moneI personally know two 
people who are going through the motions as Landmark Leaders because of
the profits, and I've had this admitted to me. 

These people don't want to help you, the most successful ones are the best 
actors and 'empowerment' often leads to profits with strong sales techniques 
and a good dose of brainwashing (-cough- training).

The aftereffects of this event has caused several strains on my group of 
close friends, and our friend Saunatina has consistantly been trying to push
our friend Jon into coming back to the Forum, as well as encouraging others
to emotionally and socially attack others; projecting her feelings of insecurity
on others and making them feel negative or bad about their lives. 

This is classic peer pressure, with a very close loving approach. Someone 
like Saunatina I'd always considered such a strong, willful person; 
she was an indiviual, who didn't take shit from anyone, maybe she had
some issues, but she was always original, confident, and fun. Now she's 
become like an angry emotional zombie, who is in heavy recruitment mode 
and is pressuring our circle of friends and frankly, I'm considing not 
being her friend anymore if this is the way that she's going to treat my friends.

Landmark teaches you during the begining courses that your friends, 
family, churches, and lovers may turn against you when they hear the 
'good news of your transformation', and will try to dissuade you, 
and tell you that 'you haven't changed'. Well I disagree, she has 
changed, and to be honest- it's for the worst. If Landmark Education 
teaches you to 'have more fufilling friendships, sex life, and get 
rich / become financially successful', then why is she hurting her 
friendships, unable to find a job, and is unsure of her own sexuality?

It hurts me to see something like this, sweeping like a plague and 
ripping people from their lives, their friends, their jobs, and their 
families - to know that people fall into this kind of trap, lined with
honey and empty promises, while breaking off all forms of love, 
life, and relationships that previously their seemed to enjoy and 
shelling out their wallets [when they can't afford often].

Landmark Education runs from $450.00 for begining courses (9am-midnight,
to tire your brain out and make it more vulerable), $700-100 for the 
advanced courses, while the 'Wisdom' courses (there are several) all
start at $1,500 and go up from there. As you can see, it's obviously 
a profit mongering group, which will do anything to try and squeeze 
every resource out of you. It's not about helping you, it's about them.

If Landmark Forum / Education really wanted to help people,
why does it charge so much money?

Why does Landmark Forum have so many volunteers who work for free
[The U.S. Department of Labor has a current case against Landmark 
Education because they believe they are violating national laws on
labor and human exploitation, because they are a FOR PROFIT company, 
not a non-profit organization] - They are the new Starbucks of 
self-faith and empty, broken promises. 

================================================

A very good way to describe the circles of logic used by cults and
"organizations" like this is to find a way to defy logic, critical 
thinking, and any general semblence of skepticism by bending the 
social/verbal rules to their englightened selves.

A common feature of every LGAT, Cult, human potential seminar (Landmark),
whatever similar organism that I have encountered or heard of or read 
about is that they have a gambit of semanticizing all discussion, most
particularly discussion that concerns the Dominant Organism... 

Pay close attention to the nature of this gambit and do not take your
eye off the ball for a second... To semanticize means to throw ordinary
language itself into question... to suggest by implication that the LGAT
(or whatever) has access to a special understanding, either about the
true nature of the self, the true nature of reality, or the true purposes
of existence that cannot be expressed using commonly held concepts/definitions
or a commonly used vocabulary. The Semantic Gambit is fundamentally
rhetorical as it is a framing device that frames Outsiders or new 
inductees as fundamentally ignorant, incapable of "getting it" without 
adhering to a rigidly defined process (which can only be "truly understood"
when the occult inner meanings of the semantically shifted in-house
vocabulary is "truly understood")... 

The Semantic Gambit serves to put the unfamiliar novice in a defensive
position of being framed as operating from a position of ignorance 
or non-comprehension... and more insidiously, incapable of comprehension
until an arduous process of indoctrination has taken place ... in plain 
English, it is a way to make you feel insecure and stupid and frame
their junk as so far above your tiny mind you should thank them for 
letting you in on the secret. IE: Anything you throw at them is a 
'racket', because you're 'always holding yourself back' - they are
always right, you are always wrong.

==============================================

Do not be a zombie, who's life is empty or meaningless.

Fight for the right to keep your own mind, and don't join this CULT.
If it looks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it's probably a duck.

And don't think you're safe just yet, there are MANY other
companies [started by landmark graduates] which use the EXACT 
same formula (signups, volunteers, pressure, same exact 'training' 
techniques, etc) that Landmark utilizes, it's basically Landmark 
Education by different names, again often started by those who 
finally 'got it' - being the head of a legal pyramid scheme.

LSS (Life Success Seminar), Lifespring, Sterling Inc, PSI 7
["The Farm/The Ranch"], IMPACT, and other LGAT. If you're not 
aware, LGAT stands for Large Group Awareness Training.
Other names many of these companies go by: Women's Weekend, 
Asiaworks, Indiaworks, GDT, MSIA, Mankind Project,
EST Renewal, LEC, UMKC, Fire Seed, Cannon Training and Devleopment,
Aji Network, etc. There's many names and clone companies, DO NOT BE FOOLED!

So many people have lost their lovers, friends, and family
members to these sorts of modern, corporate, seemingly nice cults.

Dance lessons? Because you're obviously bad at expressing yourself!

Dance lessons? Because you're obviously bad at expressing yourself!: "I hate it when people lie.
I mean, it's one thing to 'spare your feelings' which is still always bullshit.
It's one thing when you lie about loving someone.
When you make commitments, and say 'I'd never do ____" and do anyways.
Especially when your promise it, over and over again.
When you promise you'd never give up, no matter how much it hurts or difficult it is.
Because you made someone feel things, they'd never felt before.
When you know they are just going back to the same fucked up situation.

Cowards, I can deal with.. but liars are horrible.
People who lie about love, are even worse.

I'm sorry you're such a coward and can't fight for this.

If you want to be with someone who doesn't care about you,
your passions, or makes you feel unloved (your words), whatever.

If you want to be with someone who can never make you feel
what I've made you feel (your words), that's fine.

If you want to eventually fall into the same pattern/cycle
with someone who emotionally blackmails you, good luck.

You may think you're doing this for 'the greater good', but when
it goes back to the same old shit, you'll realize what you lost."

Dance lessons? Because you're obviously bad at expressing yourself!: "..if someone said they were in love with you,
that they would call you once a day.
..if someone said they wanted a future together
they would make and keep plans with you.
..if someone really wanted you, that they would
make more of an effort, even if it was uncomfortable.

/shrug: often silence speaks for itself."

Ugh, Bisexual Guys.. - Dance lessons? Because you're obviously bad at expressing yourself!

Ugh, Bisexual Guys.. - Dance lessons? Because you're obviously bad at expressing yourself!: "Situation (A) : Bisexual, he wants me and his girlfriend.

I really don't approve of this anyways, or even bisexual
guys who lean more towards guys (he does I think) dating
girls because if you lean to a side (and bi people do,
whether or not they admit it), they should go for that only
because they'll never be happy with the other side..
Ugh.. I'm not saying ALL bisexual men are slutty fucks,
but I'm saying a good 95% of them are, and they know it..
in fact, most of them are quite proud of the fact - which
in turn pisses me off even more. I just need to let it
be known .. I won't date a bisexual guy unless he's going
to be gay for me.. which includes (but is not limited to):
No straight porn, looking at girls, talking about girls
and/or ex-girlfriends, being overly hetero (nascar/wwf).
Got it ? So. Yeah.

Situation (B) : He's closeted, has a cover girlfriend.

I really can't put up with guys who are so closeted and
so paranoid about this. I mean if you NEED a girlfriend
to prove your fuckin' straight, then you might as well
resign yourself to a life of celibacy and just turn straight.
Seriously, guys who do this shit really make me sick, and
if you are in the closet and say 'I'm not interested in
dating right now' to hide yourself, fine.. more power to
you - that is A. O. K.! But if you need to date a chick
to satify the people around you, then you just are pathetic
and you need to get out of the situation and stand up for
yourself.. I can't count the times I've seen this situation,
and it's THESE closeted w/ girlfriend guys who end up being
the dickheads who divorce their wives when they are in their
mid 30s and have kids [because they fucked their wives ONCE
while thinking of the plumber, or a co-worker]. These are
the kind of societial fit-ins that are destroying families
as we speak, and breaking some poor bitch's heart who thought
she met a nice, heterosexual man to love for the rest of her
long life. I feel sorry for the kids and the wives these
fuckin' cowards put their families through. I must also
mention these are the same idiots who cheat on their wives
during the weekends and "business trips" out of town. Ugh."

Green cheese and ham slabs.: swinginggranny

Green cheese and ham slabs.: swinginggranny: "Green cheese and ham slabs.
My poem

My ass cheese is green,
My ass cheese is black,
My ass cheese smells,
Like my husbands nutsack.

My lips smell like fish,
My lips smell like eggs,
My lips dangle down
Way beneath my legs.

My pussy runs hot,
My pussy runs cold,
My pussy looks rotten,
But it is quite old.

The more I scratch it,
The more sores I create,
The more I rub it,
The more I masturbate.

My twat oozes yellow,
My twat oozes green.
My twat has been used,
By a whole football team.

My warty puss looks good,
When it's hot, warm and wet.
My warty puss feels yummy,
When it's licked by my pet.

The End
Vanessa Amplepants.
