American Animated Cartoon

The animated cartoon is usually associated with children and of course, kids love this kind of entertainment. However, many

adults are entertained though animation as well. Recently, adults have become the target audience in some animated cartoon

programs. It is not unusual to have a conversation between two adults that include current programs like Family Guy and

Sponge Bob Square Pants.

There are basically four categories in this entertainment genre, basic American, Anime, American Anime and classic. The basic

American animated cartoon includes such memorable programs as Bugs Bunny, Flintstones and Scooby Doo. The changing face of society has left many of these old favorites as cult classic animated cartoons.

Gearing some of the content toward mature audiences is not really a new thing. The older Warner Brothers animated cartoon

would include some jibes and jokes that would go completely over a child’s head while providing some entertainment for

parents. Other programs were based on adult shows. For example, the Flintstones animated cartoon was based on Jackie

Gleason’s Honeymooners.

Anime is the Japanese style of animated cartoon that has been in circulation for many years. It has become increasingly

popular over the last decade. Anime has been geared for both children and adults. There are several cartoons that are

developed just for children like Pokemon and Digemon Digital Monsters. There are also several adult themed anime cartoons

like Full Metal Alachemist and Inuyasha.

American Anime is the most recent trend in the modern animated cartoon. Shows like Avatar and Martin Mystery and Teen Titans blend the American style of using proper body proportions while adding elements of traditional anime as well. Common

features of the traditional version include oversized eyes and extreme exaggeration of emotion in facial expressions.

Classic animated cartoon styles include Disney and Don Bleuth films. These films are very realistic in style. The animators

are required to study everything about the characters. They even have to know the movement of a cat’s tail that is sitting in

the background. The classics like Snow White and The Secret of NIMH are prime examples of this intricate art form.
The animated cartoon has come a long way. You can find entire networks dedicated to this form of entertainment. The Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon and The Disney Channel offer this programming twenty-four hours a day. The Fox network devotes most of its Sunday lineup to the grown-up animated cartoon like Family Guy, The Simpsons and American Dad.

While the animated cartoon will always be closely tied to our experiences with childhood, it is nice to know that we can

still appreciate this form of entertainment as adults.

Honda Hybrid Models Are Worth A Look

Though launched on the market as early as the 90s, Honda hybrid models started being promoted in the US only from 1999. The model called Honda Insight was the first one that became available to us buyers and soon Toyota Prius followed Honda’s model. It seems that Honda’s hybrid models enjoy high sales rates as well as the Toyota ones although in the United States Honda has taken the lead. One Honda hybrid that set a record in terms of selling in 2004 is the Civic Hybrid. This would explain why there were more than 100,000 of Honda’s hybrids sold between 1999 and 2006. Most of these models went to owners in the United States, next come Japan, Europe and Canada.

The Accord Honda hybrids saw the market daylight in 2004. This way people could enjoy the Honda hybrid models more extensively and with a greater variety. It has presented the company in North America with quite a great deal of success and worldwide it has become a favorite among hybrid models. This particular model has 255 horse power, it is a V-6 car and it reduces the fuel consume a great deal.

The Civic Honda hybrids were launched in 2002 and it included an integrated motor assist system that proved magic in terms of increasing fuel efficiency. In 2006 this model was declared the Car of the Year in North America based on the advantages presented by design, safety, way of handling, satisfaction offered to drivers and value.

Getting back to the first Honda hybrids, the Insight was also fuel efficient and it took the lead in the car sales for about six years. It has been estimated that about a tank of 10 gallons can last for somewhere between six and seven hundred miles.

All in all, as it is the case with any other hybrid model, the Honda hybrids are also very environmentally friendly. The emission level they release into the air is lower and thus our urban environment is much more protected from this point of view. If more hybrids entered the market, there would also be a drop in the number of people who suffer from respiratory ailments. The only inconvenience that Honda hybrid models and other companies’ designs share is that the batteries are toxic for the environment. Therefore, it is of utmost importance that we follow instructions to what it is allowed to do and what not with those batteries.

Available Light Portrait Photography

Windows

Daylight from a window provides a soft light, and high degree of contrast/modelling. Windows that face the sun are generally not very satisfactory because the light can vary in strength from moment to moment. Direct sunlight will also cast strong shadows from window frames, leaded panes, etc.

The size of the window affects the quality of the light. A small widow can act like a soft spotlight, while a large window provides a more diffused light like a floodlight. Similarly, the proximity of the subject to the widow will affect how they are illuminated. The closer they are, the softer and more even the lighting will be.

Your aim should be to place the subject so that the light falls on their front, and not behind them. The subject should be facing roughly parallel to the window. They can turn to look through the window, but should not be looking directly out of the window, nor into the room and away from the light.

The bottom of a large (e.g. floor length) window can easily be masked-off (newspaper and tape will do) so that the light falls from above at an angle of between 30 and 45 (see the basic principles of lighting).

The light from a single widow will often produce too much contrast, and a “fill-in” light is usually required.

Fill-in illumination

Fill-in illumination should not be brigher than the main light source.

A white reflector is often the simplest way to provide fill-in illumination. A large piece of white card works well, and is easy enough to obtain if you keep your eyes open for such things (or you can buy a sheet of white mount board). The aim is to use this to reflect or bounce light from the window back on to the subject. You should be able to clearly see the effect of the reflected light as the reflector is repositioned.

The closer the reflector is to the subject, the stronger the reflected light will be, but the intensity of the bounced light will always be less than that of the main light source.

Another option is to use an on-camera flash. This is a little more tricky to get right as the level of fill-in achieved can only be observed once the picture has been taken. If the level of illumination provided by the flash is greater than that from the window, it then becomes the main light source, and modelling is lost. The strength of a flash can be reduced by sticking layers of tissue over it.

Normally, the position of the fill-in light will be on or near to the axis of the camera. This makes an on-camera flash ideal when used as a fill-in. The position of a card reflector should similarly be such that it bounces light on to the subject along the axis of the camera.

Don’t expect to get the lighting right first time. Some experimentation will be

TV show boosts demand for cosmetic surgery

Many women want to improve their bodies, with an increasing number opting to undergo cosmetic surgery abroad.

And there are suggestions that the popularity of such procedures has been boosted thanks to a TV show being show in the UK.

Called The Only Way Is Essex, the programme is being aired on ITV and it focuses on a group of people from the southern county.

While breast enlargement abroad and within Britain was already on the up before the show, there have been claims that this upwards trend has been pushed even further by the television offering.

According to a report on the Daily Star, a medical group has seen raised interest from potential customers.

The publication suggested that stars of the show, such as Lauren Goodger and Amy Childs, are causing women to re-evaluate their own figures.

Indeed, interest from within Essex itself is rising the fastest, Transform has claimed.

It said the number of people seeking to have boob jobs went up by 31 per cent after the show started to be aired, while operations on lips and other areas were also more popular.

And it is not just women who are enquiring about such procedures, the firm noted.

It has also seen a 32 per cent increase in questions from men, it pointed out.

Shami Thomas from the company said: “We’re astounded by the impact the show is having on the number of inquiries from the Essex and east London area, we can also see a direct correlation on our website when the show is on air.”

She added: “The show’s stars certainly live up to the Essex stereotype as being gorgeous and glamorous, but this shows looking good is a priority whether you’re on TV or not.”

Thanks to the development of new medical techniques and competition in the industry, a rising number of people are now able to get cosmetic surgery abroad.

Whether they are seeking breast enlargement abroad or other forms of treatment, there is an ever increasing range of options open to them.

Psycho Realm Lyrics An Early Example Of Horror Rap

Many students of 90s hip hop could tell you about hip hop super group Psycho Realm off the top of their heads. Those same people would probably tell you, that while Psycho Realm lyrics do not epitomize horror rap values, Psycho Realms lyrics had enough influence on Psychopathic Records artists Insane Clown Posse for them to invite their Californian rap pals on tour.

But even though Psycho Realm lyrics to not embody what horror rap is known for, at least as far as Psychopathic Records is concerned, that doesnt mean Psycho Realms couldnt have had another type of impact on horror rap Gods Insane Clown Posse. And to say that Psycho Realm lyrics did have an impact on these legendary horror rappers would be quite the compliment, because Insane Clown Posse even owns their own labelPsychopathic Records–full of other talented horror rap artists. To say they know what theyre doing would be an understatement.

The similarity of Psycho Realm lyrics and Insane Clown Posse lyrics that sticks out the most to me has nothing to do with their content; instead, the delivery of Psycho Realms lyrics and the delivery of Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dopes horror rap lyrics are on the same wave length. Both are tight, rhythmic, and dropped with intensity. Listen to Psycho Realms lyrics on “Stone Garden” and compare them to Insane Clown Posses lyrical delivery on “Hokus Pokus” (released on Great Milenko through Psychopathic Records) and youll see what I mean.

So theres the delivery comparison. And while there may be more to discuss in that realm of things, perhaps there is some overlap when it comes to the substance of Psycho Realms lyrics and the meaning of lyrics that come from the mouths of Psychopathic Records artists. Consider this snippet of Psycho Realm lyrics from “Stone Garden”:

Were on our way to the stone garden,
End of the road where everybody goes but not forgotten,
Frames all rotten souls travel to unravel,
Other worlds and big cloud castles

Any Juggalo or Juggalette can note similarities in this song and Psychopathic Records horror rap music, specifically that of ICP, right away. For one, theyre talking about the after life, and we all know how prominent of a theme Hell and Heaven are in Psychopathic Records songs. ICP even has Jokers cards dedicated to them. This theme is not only true for ICP, but for other Psychopathic Records artists too.

Secondly, these Psycho Realm lyrics discuss departing souls. Souls that travel happen to be a lyrical staple for Psychopathic Records artists. I dont know if theres a closer cousin to ICPs horror rap mythology about the Dark Carnival, where souls wait in limbo to find out if theyll be traveling to heaven or hell.

Likewise, if your new partner seems to be distracted by a former relationship, you ought to consider whether or not they have jumped into a relationship with you too quickly.

You’ll be delicate about this of course. Notice if they are hanging on to items from a past relationship or if they mention their past relationships too often. Talking concerning your past is normal. Dwelling on it can be a problem and will not facilitate anyone.
