Junior Boys - Banana Ripple

Aircraft Interiors Expo 2011


Hamburg is a hub for aircraft interiors, making it a natural place to hold the annual Aircraft Interiors Expo. A marketplace for everything you could possibly put in an aircraft, this is where the airlines come for their yearly big shop, and where everyone from Lufthansa Technik to niche safety-belt manufacturers roll out their latest products. Gabriel Leigh finds out what’s new inside airplanes.

Ten Travel Tips


1. Try to always fly with the same airline partner and earn more reward points.
Here are a few other things I’ve learned over the years to make travelling easier and more
enjoyable.

2. If they don’t stock Worcester sauce, don’t panic. Add a splash of red wine to your
Bloody Mary; you can’t tell the difference. At 9,000 meters, your taste buds are a
blunt instrument.

3. Because of the lack of taste-bud sensitivity, if you want to taste your food you’ll
want to dunk the entire sachet of salt and pepper on your chicken or fish. Maybe
bring your own Tabasco.

4. Don’t ever order the pasta, unless you like chewing cardboard. If you eat Ryvita,
disregard this advice.

5. Always remember to take your ear plugs, even if you don’t intend to sleep on the
plane. The one time you forget them is the time you’ll be seated at the crèche end
of the plane.

6. Before boarding, take everything you need for the flight out of your hand luggage
so you don’t hold everyone up when you get to your seat.

7. When packing a suit jacket, pull the sleeves inside out and roll it up to limit
creasing. Put paper between the layers of clothes in your bag or, better yet,
separate your shirts into individual bags. This will limit creasing, and then you
have a bunch of bags at the end of your trip that you can fill with tourist tat.

8. Get a red cover for your passport – if you’re Swiss, lucky you. Red is the colour
of diplomatic passports. Wave it at immigration and you may be diverted to the
diplomatic and crew queue. Much shorter. When you get there, plead ignorance
and they’ll stamp you and let you pass.

9. Sign up for a retinal scan. There are lots of different names for this system – in the
U.K. it’s called Iris. It means you don’t need to show your passport at the other
end, you just have to stand in front of a computer screen. This can save loads of
time. And it’s also quite James Bond.

10. If you’re flying Business or First, save the “Priority” tag they put on your
suitcase. Next time, if you’re flying Economy, reattach it. (This is particularly
infallible if you’re doing “self check-in.”) Thanks to this little bit of card, your
bag will be first off. And that means you’ll have a jump start on the taxi queue.

Bon voyage.

Women Digging, India

During the dry season herding activity slackens, and the Rabari people alter their routines. In Rajasthan, women turn to grueling wage labor, earning two dollars a day for digging a reservoir.

Modern Day Romeo & Juliet THE BREAK UP



To Fair Rosaline,
It appears to me that affection is short-lived,

For my heart to you, I may not give.

Love that moved my every step,

 Is one that seeks in a direction left.

 Be you still of quivering sorrow,

 Forget my name in morning’s next marrow.

 O, if thou eyes ‘gain sail upon my seas,

 I will be the wind that drifts you softly from me.


And if thou tears were to rain in rocky storms,


For you, I will give a new sky to be born.


‘N if thou wants not to choose’st my light,


I will dim my soul as to not seem so bright.


And stay away I, a Montague:


To let your radiance in the night save you through.


And as I do pity thee, I do not regret:


For my love stubbornly lies with another Capulet,


My only, My fairest, My Juliet.


-Romeo

Rosaline's Response/Reaction

"So what are you saying Romeo?..

But I gave you my heart", as she holds it falling to her knees.

She wails in desperation,

laying on the ground moving in a circular clockwise motion.

Then she sits up and pleads to Romeo pounding the ground

As she starts to ripp her cloths grabbing her hair reaching her

arms in the air, and to Romeo.

Then she says....

"Fu** you Romeo I hope you die tonight!"

 Then she quickly changes her mind...

like storm on a cloudless day, mixed emotions, she professes........

-by Cee & Z.A

Akcent- My Passion

....So the guy singing in this song is suppose to be Romeo confessing his love to Juliet. And the girl is Rosaline professing her love to Romeo...



Love can be so tricky and screwed up..LOL

SUPER-COMPUTER-ROMANTICS by Matt Pyke & Friends @ La Gaîté Lyrique


Matt Pyke is one of the most innovative – and positive – motion-artists of his time. His approach can be described as both scientific and holistic, as the name of his design studio, Universal Everything, suggests. The striking variety of his artistic practices (product, print, branded art, tv idents, interactive design, shop installations, arts), has positioned Pyke as a global contributor in the diffusion and popularization of design and motion design.

La Gaîté Lyrique invites the artist for an exceptional exhibition, a lecture, and provides more insights about the creator in the ressources center and the video games space for a special curation.


I'd luv this..I want to see this exhibition..OH YES!! that would be nice!:)
