Hands on: God of War 3 turns on the gore

10 June 2009 (wired.co.uk)



Los Angeles: There’s one thing that immediately distinguishes God of War III from its predecessors: gore, and lots of it. Otherwise, it looks quite a bit like the first two games, which appeared on PlayStation 2. On the one hand, this is largely down to the fact that the original games’ creators pushed the hell out of Sony’s prior platform. On PlayStation 3, the graphics, though clearly upgraded, are relatively less impressive, because Sony now has many games that look just this good. Perhaps, then, it's because the designers needed to do more to separate God of War III from its last-gen brethren that they filled it with flowing blood, splattering entrails, etc. Blood is busting out all over: erupting geyser-like from enemies’ slit throats, pooling on the floor, sticking to the walls, smearing in real time all over Kratos’ ghostly white skin.

Death as Wedding Guest: Bride’s or Groom’s Side?

10 April 2009 (nytimes.com)



Conceived as if it were an act of revenge against the entire destination-weddings industry, “Harper’s Island” (beginning Thursday) is a 13-episode mystery-thriller-psychodrama with CBS’s dopey but shamefully watchable whodunit imprimatur all over it. The whodunit here revolves around a series of murders that unfold each week on a secluded island in the Pacific Northwest, where lots of young people played by anonymous bad actors (and a sleazy uncle, played by Harry Hamlin) have gathered for the wedding of a former boat cleaner and a tootsie of an heiress who doesn’t mind her sex in industrial kitchens.

YouTube and Universal to Create a Hub for Music

10 April 2009 (nytimes.com)

SAN FRANCISCO — YouTube, the most popular online video site, and Universal Music Group, the world’s largest music company, said on Thursday that they would create an online hub for music videos and related content, called Vevo. The agreement is the latest of many efforts by YouTube, which is owned by Google, to put more professionally produced content in front of its huge audience, and in turn, earn more money from advertising. Music videos of Universal’s artists will be available both on Vevo.com, which will be powered by YouTube’s technology, and on a Vevo channel on YouTube. The companies said they would share revenue from advertising on both sites, but declined to discuss specific terms of the agreement.

Sailing Off, Wheelchairs at the Prow

10 April 2009 (nytimes.com)



Theater Review


If you have ever wondered how Katharine Hepburn might have been as King Lear, Jane Alexander offers a few lively suggestions in her performance in “Chasing Manet,” the whimsy-clotted new play by Tina Howe that opened on Thursday night in a Primary Stages production at 59E59 Theaters. Ms. Alexander, a Tony-winning actress (and four-time Oscar nominee) of daunting authority, plays Catherine Sargent, an imperious artist who has been consigned to an old-age home. And when she stands angry and barefoot in her white nightgown, long, snowy hair tumbling around her naked patrician face, raging in a Brahmin accent against those who brought her to this sad point. ... Well, just squint a little, and you can imagine Catherine morphing into Katharine, shouting down the thunder on the blasted heath.

Recession Fuels Readers’ Escapist Urges

8 April 2009 (nytimes.com)



In a recession, what people want is a happy ending. At a time when booksellers are struggling to lure readers, sales of romance novels are outstripping most other categories of books and giving some buoyancy to an otherwise sluggish market. Harlequin Enterprises, the queen of the romance world, reported that fourth-quarter earnings were up 32 percent over the same period a year earlier, and Donna Hayes, Harlequin’s chief executive, said that sales in the first quarter of this year remained very strong. While sales of adult fiction overall were basically flat last year, according to Nielsen Bookscan, which tracks about 70 percent of retail sales, the romance category was up 7 percent after holding fairly steady for the previous four years.

Lady Sovereign: 'I lost the plot a few times'

8 April 2009 (guardian.com)

It should be a straightforward question, but for rapper Lady Sovereign a simple "How are you?" requires careful consideration. "I feel ... good." Pause. "Yeah, I'm good. I'm ... " Long pause. "I'm ... happy," she decides. Louise Harman is just 23, but already she's had quite a life. By the age of 20, she had scored a Top 10 hit with the Ordinary Boys - Nine2Five - and recorded with the Streets. In 2005, she got a deal with Island Records in the UK, while Jay-Z himself signed her to his Def Jam label in the US. She was soon touring America with Gwen Stefani, performing in front of thousands in Times Square. Lady Sovereign, the self-described "street rat from a normal working-class family", had made it. She became, and remains, good friends with Stefani; the two would hang out every night "just bantering", she says. One evening they ended up "chasing each other around a field, drop-kicking each other.

NBC Universal decided that it looks really good in green… lots of green. After a lengthy legal battle, NBC U and the Weinstein Co. have finally settled the lawsuit that was preventing Project Runway from leaving NBC's Bravo for Lifetime in a shocking deal made almost one year ago. With the roadblock cleared, Lifetime has decided to air the next cycle of its new prized possession (which was shot last year and has been completed for months now) sometime this summer. The show was originally supposed to air on Lifetime last November, with a second cycle scheduled for this spring or summer.

The Strange Tale of a Chinese Emperor’s French Prints

3 April 2009 (nytimes.com)



Of all the East-West encounters, few are as strange as the story at the heart of the Louvre show of 44 French 18th-century prints on view until May 18, under the title “The Chinese Emperor’s Battles: When the Qianlong Emperor Sent His Requests for Prints to Louis XV.” From 1755 to 1759, the army sent by Emperor Qianlong (1735-1796) fought a tough war to conquer Mongol lands and, further west, the vast territories of the Uighurs in Turkistan, now called Xinjiang. Executed at the behest of the emperor, the prints offer an idealized vision of a considerably harsher reality.

Alien Trespass Milks '50s Sci-Fi for Laughs

3 April 2009 (wired.com)


R.W. Goodwin dealt with plenty of aliens and slimy creatures as he helped steer the first five seasons of The X-Files, racking up producing and directing credits on more than 100 episodes during the series' heyday. Now the director is unleashing a giant rubber monster on an unsuspecting world in Alien Trespass, a so-earnest-it's-funny homage to '50s sci-fi flicks that opens Friday in limited release. Set in 1957 and inspired by classics like War of the Worlds, The Day the Earth Stood Still and It Came From Outer Space, the movie gets comedic mileage from the kind of special effects that were once considered scary.

Facebook's public listings are a security risk

1 April 2009 (newscientist.com)



A new paper (pdf) by the Computer Security Group at the University of Cambridge looks at Facebook's policy of releasing a small chunk of a user's profile to the internet at large. They show that, for relatively little effort, it's possible to pull up huge amounts of information about who's friends with who, who are the most heavily-connected users, and so forth - all of which is prime fodder for spammers, phishers and internet marketers. In fact, this is just the kind of data that many people think Facebook will need to sell to turn a profit from its massive network.

Fear detector makes for the fairground ride of your life

31 march 2009 (newscientist.com)

If amusement park rides never seem to deliver the level of thrill you're after, you'll welcome new ones that can spot if a person is bored and push up the excitement levels to compensate. Conversely, they could calm things down should the levels of excitement peak too high. Engineers at the University of Nottingham, UK, are developing rides that do just that – recording physiological data that indicates the kind of experience a person is having and altering what they do in response.

Sanjay Dutt barred from election

31 march 2009 (bbc.co.uk)



The Indian Supreme Court has ruled that Bollywood actor Sanjay Dutt, convicted for his role in the 1993 Mumbai blasts, cannot contest forthcoming elections. The court declined Dutt's request to suspend his conviction saying he had been involved in a "serious offence". The actor was sentenced to six years in jail in July 2007 for buying weapons from bombers who attacked Mumbai. He was bailed in November 2007 and wanted to stand as a Samajwadi Party candidate while his appeal is heard. The Samajwadi Party hoped he would run in Lucknow, capital of the northern state of Uttar Pradesh. Dutt is one of Bollywood's most bankable stars.

Facebook attacks gov't web-monitoring plans

Social-networking site Facebook has criticised government suggestions that intelligence services should monitor the web communications of all UK citizens. Facebook chief privacy officer and head of global public policy Chris Kelly told ZDNet UK on Tuesday that the government proposals, which include monitoring social-networking sites, were excessive. "We think monitoring all user traffic is overkill," Kelly said. "There is legislation to allow law enforcement access to traffic data [of suspects].

Ladybug Magazine

I love these magazines. We subscribe to Ladybug, Spider, and Cricket (each for a different child). The stories are great, as is the illustration. An illustrator friend of mine says that it is very prestigious to be asked to illustrate a story in these magazines, and I figure it is the same for the stories. No advertising, of course. The thing I like the best is that each magazine is geared toward a certain age of child.

My husband and I were looking for something in our backyard for the grandkids that they wouldn't outgrow so quickly. That seems to be the biggest problem with so many outdoor toys for kids.
