Land of Giants part 1 Land of Giants part 1
Colorado. 152 million years ago. A herd of dinosaurs is on the move. A herd of 60 foot, 20 ton Camarasaurus is traveling across the plain. They are part of a family of dinosaurs called sauropods, long necked, long tailed, 4 legged plant-eaters. Some sauropods are the largest animals that will ever walk the earth. These are all female. They are on their way to the place of their birth: the nesting ground.
After 5 miles of walking, they finally reach their destination. It is a dry plain bordered by a forest of ancient conifers. A few gingkoes are also there, along with plenty of ferns to eat. The Camarasaurs then dig holes
Why Music in Film is Important Why Music in film is Important
This is a subject I feel does not get the respect it deserves. I always see this get the shaft and I'm here to give it the respect it deserves. You see, without music, film would feel hollow. For example, imagine Jaws without it's famous shark attack theme. It would not be as scary. Or, imagine The Lion King without Hans Zimmer's score or Elton John and Tim Rice's songs. The weight of the story would not be there. The reason for this is that music sets the mood of a film and in some cases can even tell what's going on in a scene. I'm going to stop this now and will ask you in the comments to list your favorite film soundtracks. And, please list the people who did the soundtracks as well. To get us started, I'll list my faves:
Jurassic Park, Jaws, Idiana Jones: John Williams
Lion King: Hans Zimmer, Tim Rice and Elton John
Fan Theory rant Fan Theory Rant
People, we need to have a talk. About YOU. Yes, You. You being the fan of a particular movie, tv show, novel, comic, ect. You then try to make a theory and , well, contreversy comes-a-brewin'. Now, I'm not saying you're an idiot if you believe such things. But, don't tote it around like it's a fact it it's just a theory unless prove/disprovven by the creator. So, unless it is totally confirmed, it's just an opinion.
Monsters Resssurected rant Monsters Resserected rant
Well, I already picked apart 1 terrible dino-doc,so why not another one. Today we will look at Monsters Ressurected: Biggest Killer Dino and learn why overhyping an animal on a documentary is never a good idea. Lets begin!
(Narrator: Rugops, a 30 foot long killing machine is on the prowl.)
(Rugops takes down baby Paralititan.)
(Narratorut, it's not over. In this land of giant killers, there is always a bigger beast.)
(Spinosaurus attacks Rugops.)
(Narrator: Enter Spinosaurus.)
1. That Rugops looks more like an allosaurid than an abelisaurid. 2. Notice that when the Spinosaurus grabbed the Rugops which was THIRTY feet keep in mind, only one end was sticking out of it's jaws, making the Spinosaurus Godzilla-sized when in reality, it was 52 feet at most.
(Spinosaurus is the world's biggest meat eating dinosaur. Yet it has become a postscript in dinosaur history.)
Uh, people know about Spinosaurus. This doc came out in 2009. Jurassic P
ViolinI remember the day
you told me violins
were strung with cat gut
and that is why
you hated music
(who says that to a child?)
I followed you
all that summer.
I watched you
grow away from mother -
your whiskey held better conversations
and all she did was cry.
We'd sit cross-legged on the porch
and count the horseflies
settling on our lunch.
You would drown tadpoles
in a bucket
surprised they could not swim
and I would dream
of cherry popsicles.
And when night would gather
on the sidewalk
I'd hold my breath
until a star appeared.
Don't bother making wishes
you'd tell me -
stars are dead weight in heaven
and God has cloth ears.
Keep in Touch!
