In the beginning of 21st century, there was a place where the young ones are being controlled by a power called “the FATHER”. That guy is really complicated to understand, sometimes he lets you go out and stay at your friend but sometimes he gets mad and fires the place where he controls, which is called HOUSE. You can never know if you really want to escape from the house, not just because of you economically need him, you know you love that guy but you cannot know if you want to live in the same house. In this piece of writing, you’ll read my journey of escaping from this hell and the results of that getaway. After this journey is finished, nothing is going to be the same.
The Father was “the Architect” of the house and system of my life, but hope was with me and I, I let the force be with me. If I took the blue pill, the story would end. I’d wake up in my bed and continue to live like a slave, but I took the red pill, to fight for my independence, to fire my ropes. That afternoon, I arrived next to the Father, I just wanted him to let me go out for one night, and I just said him: Father, please give me my freedom for one night. He asked me: What will you use your freedom for, are you going to study and bring me higher grades? I stopped and said: No, father. He asked: So what you’re gonna do? Save the world? Then something exploded in my heart like something. I said: No daddy, I’m gonna smoke, listen to music, and at the end of the night, after I make out with some b*tches, I am going sleep with one of them, and maybe if I am very drunk, I’ll get a tramp stamp right before my ass h*le and maybe it might be read as “I LOVE YOU DADDY”. Then I’ll spend your money, like five thousand bucks, to delete it. Now give me some money because I am going to do what I exactly said to you with your money. My mother was there next to my father and she said “What should we do?” to the Father. The father said: I’m gonna make him an offer he can't refuse. He turned his face to me Look son, tonight stay at home and will act like I didn’t hear what you said to me in previous minutes. Then my mother exited, I said to the Father: Don’t make me laugh and give me the money. He said: "You talkin' to me? You talkin' to me? You talkin' to me? Well, who the hell else are you talkin' to? You talkin' to me? Well, I'm the only one here. Who the f*ck do you think you're talkin' to?" I said: My name is Temel, Utku Temel, and left ther, shut the door.

I was planning to run away from the house but there were guardians all around the house, I was going to jump from the window, I connected my clothes to make a long rope, I escaped from the House, I defeated all the guardians with my light saber. I was shouting like “No pain, Utku, no pain!” before I defeated the guardians and after I jumped from the last door, my friend was waiting for me with his sport car and while we were driving next to sea side, in the sunset, I removed my head from the sun roof, the reflected sun light was coming on my face, and there was a Leonardo de Caprio smile in my face like I’ve met with my love in the ship where I gained tickets coincidently for. And I shouted: I’m the king of the world! And the wind was combing my hair. I said to my friend: Go faster cuz I feel the need - the need for speed!
We went to the party, but the party scene passed as fast as a plain, gone with the wind. And something happened very extra-ordinary, I threw up on the b*tt of the girl when I was f*ucking her, just like in the movie American Pie, what a movie huh? You still can’t pronounce its name comfortably next to you mother. Yeah yeah, the party scene is finished in this paragraph with this sentence.
My situation was very harmonic, heterogenic, electronic, ultrasonic, symphonic and platonic like a new born baby’s first breath, with the shyness of a teenager who is about to take a bump from his first cigarette, first sip of his drink which contains alcohol. Oh no, I really evince that I “used to” smoke and use alcohol to the readers of this paper, just remainder, the last ones who attempted to hog-tie me... they are lost now. By the time have you seen the movie “The Breakfast Club”? My favorite one, in this journey, I felt like John Bender, the guy who escaped from his detention to his locker and get extacy from there. I escaped from the House, opposed to Godfather, whoops, sorry, the Father, and ultimately the ending was obvious. When I came back to the house, the house was going to turn in the shape of my home, the Father was going to be my dad and when I came back, we would hug each other and a small tear would on my mother’s eye (Oh NOOO, illuminati!). But sorry, you expected me to say one of those fairy tale endings and after I said this you expected me to say the opposite of this. By the time, nothing has happened. When you have insomnia, you're never really asleep, and you're never really awake, this is the coolness of absurdity of Hollywood. I never really sleep. Got one eye open always cuz I’m a bad ass.

Mulholland Drive

...thrown into a dream Diane has. In this dream many of the characters and people in her actual life are integrated into her dream with new identities. The last part of the movie we are brought back to Diane’s actual reality. Only once I was brought into Diane’s reality did I realize the importance of the fantasy. I believe Diane has realized the hard, cruel reality of Hollywood and this has caused her to have a breakdown. She has lost the love of her life to this Hollywood scene and is faced with the fact that she is a failed actress. These inner conflicts and struggles have caused her despair and ultimately her demise. David Lynch is highly praised in this movie because of his ability to mesh fantasy and reality. The fantasy part digs into Diane’s deepest desires and conflicts. A lot of the things that happen in the dream part of the movie, I feel display the way she wished things had happened, mostly with her relationship with Camille. In order to understand Mulholland Drive you must be able to distinguish between Diane’s dream and her reality. The movie starts with Diane arriving to Hollywood, she is very excited and thrilled for her new opportunity. In the fantasy Diane is introduced as Betty and is described as wholesome girl who has come to Hollywood after winning a Jitterbug Contest. Throughout the movie many odd things happens with different random characters. One of the first things that happen is an old couple that Betty befriends on her plane ride to Los......

Beginnings of American Cinema Fil-110

...methods of image projection served as the rudimentary foundations of motion picture entertainment, and they advanced rapidly throughout the 1800s. Innovators such as Thomas Edison and Eadweard Muybridge began building off of image-projecting technologies to create the roots of America’s film industry. The history of the “motion picture” as we know it begins with photographer and entrepreneur Eadweard Muybridge in California in the late 19th century. He used timed exposures of photos of racehorses to capture the different stages of a horse’s gallop and placed them on a projector to simulate motion. He traveled with his creation in hopes of advancing his invention, and he eventually met with Thomas Edison at one of his shows. During this time, Edison and Muybridge worked together while trying to discover a way to set these moving images to sound from Edison’s phonograph. Soon after their meeting, Edison set out to create an even better camera that could capture more images, and eventually created the kinetograph and the kinetoscope. By the turn of the century, it was evident that the film industry was s profitable enterprise. Many early films contained little to no story line, such as Edison’s The Kiss and The Sneeze. Later, when the ability to pan a camera was born, cinema company and top Edison competitor, Biograph incorporated these techniques into their films. Other early Biograph films were mostly documentary shorts, boxing films, or crude race-based comedy shorts.......

Comparing Hong Kong and Hollywood Film Industries

...referred to as the “Hollywood of the East”. Although there are qualities of the Hong Kong film industry, which do indeed resemble those of Hollywood, implying that Hong Kong’s film industry is simply a second-tier version of Hollywood’s is an injustice to the unique industry model that Hong Kong has developed since the mid 20th century. Multiple factors, namely economic, have driven Hong Kong filmmakers to adapt different methods of production and exhibition than Hollywood filmmakers, resulting a in a distinct style of cinema that maximizes profits and controls costs, and has proven itself successful. Many of the unique practices of Hong Kong cinema stem from the industry’s tendency to push films through the production process much more quickly than the typical Hollywood film, and on a much smaller budget. The pace at which Hong Kong films are made is unmatched, proven by director Tsui Hark who went from script to release in less than two moths with his film Chinese Feast. The speed at which these films are released is driven by exhibition. With most production companies throughout Hong Kong film history being vertically integrating, including Shaw Brothers and Cinema City, the goal has been to push as many films through their own theaters as quickly as possible, with rapid turnover rates. Unlike Hollywood films, which can often stay in theaters for a month or longer, Hong Kong films usually only make theatrical runs of a week or two. By limiting the amount of time a film......

Women and the Media

...somehow we all came about with the perception of the “perfect” female. Women have always been seen, and portrayed as a sex symbol, and usually the disobedient one. Dating back to B.C and the story of Adam and Eve, Eve was the naked one who bit into the fruit that god told her was forbidden. Why couldn’t it have been Adam that caused such scandal, and was the cause for destruction, and crime in the world, and not Eve? From the believed beginning of time, to present day, women have really only progressed a small amount up the social ladder. Today, women are looked down upon, if they are slightly more over weight then what is considered “normal,” if they are “underweight”, “darker skin color”, too “pale”, “flat chested”, big boned, “thick,” or because of their ethnicities and backgrounds. So what exactly defines the “perfect female?” Is it the girls featured on “Girls Gone Wild” in Cancun, or the half naked models posing for Victoria’s Secret? Or is it the perfectly put together “Miss America” pageant queens? Or is it the Hollywood actresses with billion dollar dresses, and priceless jewelry? Or the well toned, well defined professional team cheerleaders, and dancers we watch? WE, speaking for us “average” women, who often tend to idolize, and carry pieces of all these girls within us, and envy them, for not being able to ever look like one of them…so damn perfect in every single way. These women, among many others all contribute to the foundations, of media, public......

...(Block)Busting the Movie Rental Industry June 1, 2005 BEM 106 Final Paper Zhan Wang Harrison Stein Chin Yeung Siu Ruiqi Rachel Wang Introduction: Since the 1910s when Charlie Chaplin created his first silent films, movies have been a staple in American culture. For over half a century, “the big screen” was the only link between first released Hollywood films and captivated audiences nationwide. The advent of modern technology like the VHS tape and the DVD, however, has provided viewers with a convenient way of viewing movies, new and old, no longer playing in theaters. In addition, cost considerations have made DVDs and VHS tapes ideal for short-time rentals. Thus these inventions and the terms of their usage have helped to create a movie-rental market within the larger movie industry. Rentals and other theater substitutes have become essential to the movie watching experience because the theater no longer holds the monopoly it once did. While movie theaters are still widely popular, many people dislike the inconvenience of finding a local theater playing the right movie, driving there, and then standing in long lines to buy a ticket. Some do not appreciate the large crowds that often include cell phone talkers and loquacious teenagers. And some simply don’t want to shell out ten dollars to a movie that has the chance of being Ishtar. For whatever reason, there is a large demand for rentals and substitutes from audiences who want to see the movies......

Orson Wells

...own, and even surpass, the heavy hitters of his day. His career seemed to be on a steady incline for almost a decade; however, did his talent and work hit a plateau? Welles was always seen as an active political figure that was not afraid to voice or project his own viewpoints in the public, but did this have a negative or lasting affect on his later career? Critics argue the best work Welles produced was before he hit thirty years old, so was this a direct result from the negative attention he attracted from media magnates, specifically William Randolph Hearst, Hollywood elite, and most importantly the United States government? Also, Welles left the country at a time when the dreaded “blacklist” was starting to funnel through Hollywood (“Orson” 17). Whether this was coincidence or intentional is debatable, but either way the ramifications may have helped account for the different direction he took with his post-Hollywood career. Did Orson’s fame draw too much attention and lead to his downfall? The Orson Welles we all know was an American writer, director, producer, and actor. He was known for his innovative productions, unique voice and personality, and was acclaimed as one of the most successful artist of the twentieth century (“Orson” 1). Welles expanded many medias, working in radio, television, film, and theatre (which is how Welles got his start). Welles made his stage debut in...

...lived with his mother and step-father in Grand Rapids. Each summer he would visit his father in Hollywood for two weeks which he recalled "Those trips to California were the happiest, most carefree, the-world-is-a-beautiful-oyster times I'd ever experienced." In 1974, when Kiedis was 12 years old he moved to Hollywood with his father full time. Kiedis’ father was a struggling actor and a drug dealer, which had a very strong impact on Kiedis. The two would often smoke marijuana and use cocaine together, and at the age of 14 Kiedis used heroin for the first time mistaking it for cocaine, from then on it was an downhill struggle (Kiedis, 10). Kiedis attended Fairfax High School in Los Angeles where he struggled to find friends at first, being from another school district let along another state. He soon met Michael Balzary, better known as Flea, while sitting next to him in drivers-ed class. After a brief confrontation the two became best friends and were virtually inseparable. Kiedis had a big influence on Flea, introducing him to rock music, punk rock in particular. Kiedis also met future band mate Hillel Slovak after seeing him perform with his band Anthym. After the show, Slovak invited Kiedis to his house for a snack, Kiedis described the meeting as "Within a few minutes of hanging out with Hillel, I sensed that he was absolutely different from most of the people I'd spent time with...He understood a lot about music, he was a great visual artist, and he had a sense of......

According to Sakaguchi, Aki represents his mother (the two share the same name) and his coming to terms with her death (Pham, 2001). Second and more to the point of my essay, critical reception of the film places strong emphasis on the character, which often is treated as a metonym for the film itself. This relationship works for the most part. Both film and character are formal, national and cultural hybrids neither animation nor live action; neither videogame nor film; neither Japanese nor American. Both downplay their deviations from the dominant Hollywood paradigm in order to appeal to the widest, most “global” audience possible. Yet overall low box office and DVD sales...

...The Legend of the Seven Seas. To promote the release in an innovative way, the studio tied up with Baskin-Robbins, a well known ice cream chain in the US. As part of the promotion campaign Baskin-Robbins developed a range of ice creams and novelties based on the theme of the movie. Ice cream flavors like Sinbad's Triple Punch Sherbet, Deep Blue Menace Sundae, and a Sinbad themed freeze frame cake were brought out by the company. The flavors effectively captured the ethos of the movie and generated immense publicity for both partners. The summer of 2003 was the third summer in which Baskin-Robbins had taken up the promotion of a Hollywood movie. "We've translated Sinbad's courageous spirit into a bold new line-up of flavors and desserts," said Joe Adney, (Adney) senior director of marketing at Baskin-Robbins. Analysts felt that Baskin-Robbins had hit upon a novel way of partnering for mutual benefit as the hype generated by the movie release brought publicity for Baskin-Robbins and Baskin-Robbins, in turn, helped publicize the movie. Approximately 2400 Baskin-Robbins' stores participated in the promotion, which was supplemented by extensive television publicity, themed décor in the stores and other local events. Baskin-Robbins was well known for being an innovator in the ice cream industry. Ice...

...Franklin Delano Roosevelt once said, “The only thing to fear is fear itself.” Although this quote could be applied to many different events in history, it can indisputably be compared to two of the most infamous in America’s past: The Salem Witch Trials and the “Red Scare,” or Joseph McCarthy and the House of Un-American Activities Committee. These two periods of American history are remarkably similar in numerous ways. The Salem Witch Trials in 1692 and the Hunt for Communists during the 1950’s-60’s shows something man, for some reason, continues to not realize about history: it repeats itself. The Salem Witch Trials began in the spring of 1692 in Salem, Massachusetts. There were many factors that made Salem Colony fertile-soil in which terror and hysteria could arise and thrive. King William’s war recently took place in New France (Canada) and the people feared they would strike Salem Colony next. The people were also horrified that the Native Americans would attack at any time. There had been a recent smallpox epidemic. There was a sense of rivalry towards nearby Salem Town, a community in which there was more money. These prominent factors made life stressful for the puritans and certainly tension was high among the people. It is no surprise that when the word spread of the “diagnosis” of the first witch, Betty Parris (which was the daughter of Samuel Parris), dread and suspicion enveloped the town and spread like an illness from person to person. Once the accusations......
