* An escalation by Louis Cyphre *
From the east it's not too far to the west - at least if you're traveling by plane. Canada's a giant, and so we wanted to drive a giant's car. We chose a Jeep Grand Cherokee, and this Jeep became our favorite car ever, 'cause when we left Downtown Vancouver for the Sea to Sky Highway it felt so incredibly powerful that driving was like flying up the streets to Whistler and beyond.

Moving to Toronto is easy: I just close my eyes and I'm there. When I close my eyes I open them in a dream, and dreams always become reality if you believe. I do.
I do believe we're connected to places as much as to human beings and everything alive, and 'cause everything's alive our souls remember all the beats and beams we felt intense enough to create this inner map that lets us travel really fast everywhere we want to.
So I travel, and I do it now. I travel with the speed of light and get the feeling of being in a car driving fast along the shore area of Lake Ontario, my eyes now at the skyline of a place like no other. Here I start.

* Eine Eskalation von Louis Cyphre *
Alles von oben zu sehen, ist einzigartig. Ich hätte niemals damit gerechnet, es zu tun, denn zu lange hatte ich so schreckliche Angst davor, in ein Flugzeug zu steigen, dass ich überzeugt war, es nie zu tun. Aber dank Corazon führte London zu New York, und jetzt bin ich über den kanadischen Rocky Mountains, und ich bewege mich mit einer unglaublichen Geschwindigkeit. Ich weiß nicht, wie es funktioniert, dass sich dieses so irrsinnig schwere Flugzeug beinahe zehn Stunden lang in der Luft halten kann, und ich will nicht zu sehr darüber nachdenken, welche Technik dafür nötig ist und wieviele Schaltkreise perfekt aufeinander abgestimmt sein müssen, um dieses Wunder zu vollbringen. Ich will nur weiter nach unten schauen auf diese riesigen schneebedeckten Gipfel, während ich zu begreifen versuche, dass es jetzt in Deutschland schon tiefste Nacht ist.

Zunächst mal Danke für deine tolle und sehr spannende Antwort zum Thema "Talent", und nochmal sorry, dass es mit meiner Antwort jetzt doch so lange gedauert hat. Tanja und ich hatten Besuch übers Pfingstwochenende, und Annette und Sabrina (unsere besten Freundinnen) sind sehr agil, was gemeinsame Unternehmungen angeht .
Nach allem, was du geschrieben hast: Ich werde dich nicht wiederholen. Lass uns das Wort Talent mal ganz vergessen, denn wie alles, was aus Buchstaben aufgebaut ist, ist es nur das: Ein Wort, nichts weiter.
Was ich eigentlich meine, ist das, was Gustav Meyrink mal als den daimon beschrieben hat, dieses Unbegreifliche in dir, das dich antreibt und dich Dinge tun lässt, Dinge anstreben und verwirklichen lässt, die niemand auf die gleiche Weise tun kann wie du.
Arbeit, ja. Arbeit ist das, was wir aufwenden müssen, um den Rohdiamanten zu schleifen. Aber der Rohdiamant ist da, und ich behaupte, dass der Rohdiamant darauf drän
Some Girls Lie They're Never LostSome Girls Lie They're Never Lost
* A poem by Beau Cyphre *
Snow White is a beautiful girl
Did her best to turn my world
Made my clan a fabulous place
Took her horses to the race
Rode this stallion face to face
Snow White is a nasty girl
She's living in a nasty world
Made my heart beat face to face
Let my thoughts spin in a race
Whispering words I never gave
My angel's secret kingdom's tower
Rain is falling like a thunder shower
Snow White found her prince in Oz
Some girls lie they're never lost
Hearts beat fast they're made to last

"In meiner Fantasie bin ich der kühlste Mensch auf Erden, in meinen Geschichten spiele ich immer die Rolle der Außenseiterin. Beobachten gefällt mir, aber eigentlich bin immer ich die, die beobachtet und bewertet wird. Naja, verwegene Elfen mit riesiger Macht wird es einfach nie geben, nicht ? Ach ja, die Geschichte die du mir geschickt hast, ist genial. Wenn die Magie nicht da ist, stellen wir sie uns vor- wir denken an sie, wir fassen sie in Worte. du meinst, man soll nicht von Träumen träumen, uns mehr Gedanken darüber machen, dass sie in der Realtität auch zu finden sind. Weil mein iPad fast leer ist muss ich hier ein Ende setzen, aber eine Geschichte müssen wir trotzdem zusammen schreiben!"

Art, Criticism, Suppression, and SpongeBob
The series SpongeBob SquarePants has been rather lackluster. It suffered from massive seasonal rot, and resulted in a Family Guy-esque tendency to overindulge itself on disturbing content and character derailment. (Although, I have heard that Season 9 shows signs of improvement. I’ll have to check that out at some point.) That said, there are quite a few episodes I missed due to that loss of interest. One of them came to my attention as it was reviewed by TheMysteriousMrEnter (or Mr. John Enter) as part of a list of episodes that showcased Patrick Star’s derailment from a lovable oaf into a thoughtless ass. This episode, entitled “The Googly Artiste”, reminded me a lot of an earlier episode, “Artist Unknown”. From there, I started to take a look at how both episodes relate to a trio of themes: what art is, how criticism comes into play, and how artistic capabilities are suppressed. It is interesting where a review can take you, isn
LOK: The Ultimatum Review
Hello everyone. Well, after last week’s exciting episode, does today’s episode manage to keep that momentum going? Let’s find out in this review!
What I Liked
It was pretty cool seeing Mako and Bolin’s family once again, but the surprising stand out role here was Yin, their grandmother. She had several surprisingly funny but also emotional moments.
For the funny, the first standout is when she meets Korra and Asami. I admit, it was strange that she initially didn’t seem to think much of Korra – an admittedly paranoid worry came to mind, if you know what I mean...- butshe seemed to quickly get over that, and it led to a hilariously awkward moment with them three and Mako. Kinda nice to see the creators making fun of their past...well, ‘dabbling’ into romance.
Oh, and let’s not forget her last scene. Everyone’s runs off to do something important, but Yin? ‘I’m

Steel sighed in irritation before looking up, “Once upon a time, there was a show called Teen Titans. Along with Spider-Man, this was the thing that helped shape my view on superheroes. I only saw most of the first two seasons, but they had comedy, drama, memorable characters, and some really memorable stories. So, I went into a bit of a funk when I heard that it ended, in the words of T.S. Elliot, not with a bang, but w
Action: Action RPing is probably the most basic of the styles. Normally denoted as *text* or -text-, action is generally done in the first person but can vary between RP’ers. Action RPs are often really minimal and straight forward.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Review
A group of mutated warriors face off against an evil kingpin who wants to take over New York. This is Rumor Control, here are the facts. Since it was revealed that a new Ninja Turtles film would be produced by Michael Bay the internet went nuts. Every bit of news that came out form the movie was met with immediate criticism and outrage. The whole world wrote it off as a bad film which may have been the right mind set since the film holds an abysmal 19% on Rotten Tomatoes. I, however, find these reviews to be overly critical and miss the point. I see this as mob mentality, a sort of unwritten rule that Michael Bay must be despised no matter what. Granted the man is deserving of criticism, mostly for his rampant humor (which tends to ruin his films more often then making them funny) and lack of focus on characters but I still find most of his films to be simple, dumb and fun entertainment. So I went in to TMNT with an open mind (after all I am the only person in the world who loves the t
My Thoughts on Transformers Beast Wars
I began to watch another Transformers cartoon series: Beast Wars. This show is kind of a continuation of the G1 series, and it takes place centuries after the Autobot-Decepticon Wars. The Autobots and the Decepticons are now both extinct, they are now replaced with the Maximals (descendants of the Autobots) and the Predacons (descendants of the Decepticons). Both the Maximals and the Predacons crash-land into a primitive planet (probably prehistoric Earth), which is full of Energon crystals, and because of the high Energon content of the planet, the Transformers can only stay in their robot modes for a limited amount of time.
The first Maximals to crash into the planet are Optimus Primal (Beast mode: Gorilla), Cheetor, whose probably the youngest Maximal, (Beast mode: Cheetah), Rattrap, the wise-ass, (Beast mode: Rat), Rhinox, the medic/inventor (Beast mode: Rhino) and Dinobot, the hotheaded one (Beast mode: Velociraptor). The latter was formerly a Predacon. However, as the show goes o
My review on Judge Dredd part 2.WHAT MAKES JUDGE DREDD DIFFERENT?
What makes Judge Dredd different from other superheroes?
Judge Dredd: He is a police that has full jurisdictional power. This means that he can personally sentence criminals with either prison or execution. He does not tolerate vigilantes or anyone who tries to take the law in their own hands.
Superheroes: Usually superheroes do not kill criminals because it would make themselves “criminals” or it would turn them “evil” and their morality, which I find sometimes stupid; why defeat a criminal when they know that he or she will just escape again and kill lots of innocent people, it is like a circle which can turn boring really fast.
Judge Dredd: The many things I like with Dredd are that his outfit is more of an actual uniform and he has no superpowers which makes him more realistic.
Superheroes: One of the things I do not like with superheroes is that they usually wear some colorful outfit, I used to like them but now I think tha
A Look at Babbitt by Sinclair Lewis
I have read a couple of books about salesmen struggling against conformity in my time, but the only one which I did not hate was Babbitt by Sinclair Lewis. It is the first and arguably the best book that deals with the salesman archetype, and I, D.E.L.A., am going to discuss it with you today.
Summary: Babbitt tells the story of George F. Babbitt, a realtor who lives in the made-up town of Zenith during Prohibition. Babbitt is dissatisfied with his middle-class life and feels oppressed by the social norms of this Midwestern town. Babbitt brushes these feelings aside, choosing to focus on climbing up the social ladder instead. When his good friend, Paul Riesling, shoots his wife and goes to jail, Babbitt begins to question his ways. Without his wife to reign him in, Babbitt spirals out of control, rebelling against social norms by drinking, smoking, and engaging in an extramarital affair. Babbitt’s new lifestyle leads to social isolation, and though he does no

Never saw a cherry like this! I must laugh and at the same time I admire it for its perfect shape and for all the dreams it provokes. Now I look at cherries in a different way than before - and I hope that nobody notices me when I do.
five.Five is the number of times you worry he’s stopped breathing, as the surgeons carve around his heart, twisting away the plaque ridden arteries, and pulling a vein out of his leg. Five is the number of heart wrenching hours you and your family were waiting in the hospital room, worried that your lives would crumble, that there would be five members of the family instead of six, that five days out of the week he would not come home for dinner, that five kisses from him would no longer be given to his wife and four children. Five was the amount of fingernails you bit off while watching people enter and exit the waiting room, and the amount of minutes your mother spent on the phone, explaining that something was wrong. Five is the critical difference between holding a father’s hand as your mother cries into his heart shaped pillow. The difference between rejoicing and smiling weakly because he’s okay or carrying your father’s American-flag-covered-casket and watchin
