Pixar artists - Josh Cooley - enjoys animating R rated movies. Pretty cool idea. Maybe there is hope for an R rated book of one movie?!? Gotta love the attention to detail that is on the backing/white area of each print.

such a good story on Michaela DePrince

#ballet   #dancer  
 
The Avant/Garde Diaries - profile on Ballet Dancer Michaela DePrince.

'From Giselle to Swan Lake, the tragedy of death is often reborn into the beatific within ballet. The life of young dancer Michaela DePrince embodies both. Born in Sierra Leone during that country’s brutal civil war from 1991 to 2002, both of her parents were dead by the time she was three. She was then bullied in her orphanage because of a skin condition called vitiligo, caused by the depigmentation of parts of the skin. In DePrince’s case, it produces white splotches on her neck and chest. She found solace by dreaming of becoming a dancer – a dream she nurtured ever since catching a glimpse of a ballerina from an anonymous magazine. After a couple from New Jersey adopted her, she quickly made good on that dream. At age thirteen, DePrince earned a scholarship to the renowned American Ballet Theater’s summer intensive program.

The following year, she walked out of the world’s largest ballet competition, the Youth America Grand Prix, with another scholarship in tow. DePrince is now seventeen and shows no sign of slowing down. Earlier this year, she starred in the award-winning ballet documentary First Positionand made her professional stage debut in Johannesburg.

“I want to be the best dancer I can be,” she says. “And I want to change the way people see black dancers.” She adds that she’d like to open a school in Africa, “to show other kids that nothing is impossible in life.”

Not fully comprehensive but still gives a good sense of the +Marvel Entertainment characters and who owns which rights. This will help figure out what cross-overs will and will not be happening. via #TheGeekTwins

What makes the Dark Knight great is the plot and suspense. It could have used more character.

What makes the Avengers so great is the character and dialogue. It could have used more plot.

They are the best super hero films to date but are by no means perfect.
