Collective Suicide

Even if it carries the same endlessly negative themes of most modern art, the work Collective Suicide (1936) by David Alfaro Siqueiros was visually interesting. read more Explore

Movie:

Pride & Prejudice

The only thing you really need to know is that the 1995 version of Pride & Prejudice, based on the Jane Austen novel, is one of the finest films ever made, despite originally being made as a miniseries for TV. Isn’t it amazing the difference that casting can make? The 2005 version of Pride & Prejudice is quite good – just not nearly as good as the original A&E version, despite the fact that the more recent one has some good stars, including superstars Keira Knightley, Judi Dench, and Donald Sutherland. And Knightley is a fine Elizabeth Bennet – just not with quite the edge that Jennifer Ehle plays in the AE version. Matthew Macfadyen is not bad as Mr. Darcy – but he does not define the role in the same convincing way as Colin Firth – far less famous in 1995. With the exception of Dench, every character in the 2005 version is fine, and you would think you had seen a fine movie – until you see the 1995 version. One thing common to both versions is that they stay fairly constant to Austen’s text. read more Explore

The Power of Print - National Geographic

Print may lose out to the Net in the end, but it won't go down without a fight, as shown by the April 2015 issue of National Geographic which has a couple great foldouts. One is called Light Flights about the effect of passenger bags and other items on aviation fuel consumption. The other, which is really great, is about Trajan's Column in Rome. Any fold out like these are much more effective when you can see it all at once, rather than scrolling on a computer screen. Click here to read about Light Flights. Click here to read about Trajan's Column.
