Prelude to a Kiss took place during the spring and summer in the late 1980s. The costumes that were worn reflected the time period and the season. The costumes were not futuristic or from the past, but rather fairly modern clothes. They were clothes that you might see someone wearing today. Since the play took place in the summer and spring, none of the costumes included anything heavy, such as coats or winter clothes. The costumes gave clues about the characters personalities and lives. The costumes were appropriate for each character. Mr. Boyle wore a suit, which reflected that he was a working man from the middle to upper class. Mrs. Boyle’s costume was that of a mother. The costume was not revealing and she was always put together. The old man, who was played by a female, had special effect makeup on which made the character of the old man look very real. The makeup made the actor look bald and wrinkly. Without the makeup, the character of the old man would not have been as believable and lifelike. The guests at the bar all had on costumes that were appropriate for night life. For example, the women at the bar were all dressed in dresses or skirts and heals. At the wedding, the characters costumes were all appropriate wedding attire, such as suits and dresses. Rita wore a typical long white wedding dress and had a bouquet of flowers. The minister seemed to be somewhat of a hippie or free spirit and her costume reflected on her personality. She had on a flowing shirt and sandals that gave her the appearance of a hippie, which directly reflected her personality. When Rita and Peter went to Jamaica, their costumes were appropriate for a beach setting. Rita wore a flowing dress over her swimsuit and Peter wore swimming trunks. The costumes of Rita and Peter made it look like they really belonged on a tropical island. Swimming suites are not appropriate clothing for everyday life, but perfect for a vacation on the beach. The Jamaican waiter’s costume indicated that he was a waiter and not just a tourist.

Comparing Kendrick's Between Neurosis And Perversion al. 2014). Can there be an interim answer to the question about the boundaries between art and pornography? For one, the line between the genres of hard core art cinema and pornography can be based on the sexual temporality of a film. As I mentioned in part I, when Williams describes sex scenes In the Realm of the Senses, she mentions that the are executed in the atmosphere of “relaxed intimacy”. Her description has indeed a lot to do with the film's temporality – neither Sada nor Kichi are in a hurry, they take their time. On the contrary, many mainstream pornographic movies operate in a very different temporality, they are very “productive,” people (usually men, of course) have orgasm after orgasm – there is rarely any prelude or after-sex talk, kiss, or hug. In a sense, orgasms in these movies are achieved with such a speed and in such quantity like there is a production line, and even small slow down will wreck everything down. In many mainstream pornography, actors seem to be in a hurry – in a hurry to have sex and in a hurry to come. I propose, thus, that the dividing line between genres can be set in terms of sexual temporality: pornographic films are those films that are set in this tempo of the production line, whereas erotic films offer a different temporality – which is more leisurely, more relaxed, and does not focus on constant production of (male) orgasms. If this way of thinking about pornography and art reclassifies some feminist pornography as erotic art......

Catholic vs Christians

...CATHOLICISM vs. CHRISTIANITY HUM/130 SEPTEMBER 15 2011 CATHOLICISM vs. CHRISTIANITY Introduction Christianity is a practiced religion following the teachings of Jesus Christ, which started around 1 AD, and grew stronger after 3 AD when Jesus Christ was crucified on the cross by the Pharisees, Jewish religious leaders, and the Roman government for what the Jewish leaders said was blasphemy of the Jewish belief that Christ Jesus was calling himself the Son of God. The strength of this religion goes by what Jesus Christ said he would do when he was put to death. He proclaimed that after three days he would rise from his tomb, and on the third day he did just that according to scriptures in the New Testament. Before Jesus was born, the Judea or Jewish laws as described in the Torah were the only religion that offered forgiveness of ones sins from God by sacrifice of a lamb, goat, sheep, or wing animal depending on your sin, that is what you had to buy for the Pharisee to offer to God as your sacrifice. Along came Jesus to offer another way for forgiveness of sin by offering himself as the sacrifice. He was also accused of teaching Gods law to all Gentile and Jew, when the Jews thought they were the only ones worthy of God’s laws and forgiveness. Catholicism was born from Christianity. Having the same structured beliefs Catholicism separates its beliefs by adding other religious figures into its religion. Mary mother of Jesus is hailed as a holy person because she was chosen as......

...Film i Engelsk Bilag 1a FILM ANALYSIS – an introduction (Source: – bearbejdet af Mi og LK, Favrskov Gymnasium Reading a film is just like reading a book, except that instead of looking at a written page we are looking at the cinema screen. Reading a film works in exactly the same way as a written text, or a picture, except that the tools that are used to create meaning are different. We call these tools film language. The opening sequence From the moment we first start watching a film, we begin to get involved. The first few minutes of a film (the opening sequence) are very important to us as they give us lots of clues about the film: 1) what will the film be about (conflicts/themes); 2) who are the most important characters (hero, villain, love interest); 3); what is the setting of the film (time and place); 4) the genre; and finally, 5) what sort of film language characterizes the film? We look at all these elements and begin to put them into context. Based on their environment, how they look, what they say and what we see them do, we make assumptions about the characters, their roles in the film and their relationship to each other. We also recognize so-called genre markers (things we associate with one particular genre) which tell us if we are watching a Western or a Sc-Fi film and, thus, form specific expectations about what is going to happen during the rest of the film. At the same time, we listen to the sounds and the music...

Brief Wedding Service 10. Wedding Sermons 11. Recessional 12. Premarital Conferences Introduction Jesus must have loved weddings. His first miracle took place at one. Some of his analogies regarding his relationship to the church are described in wedding terms. Paul likewise emphasizes the importance of marriage when he compares it to Christ’s relationship to the church. And in Revelation John explains Christ’s marriage relationship with the church as eternal. It is no wonder that Christians place high importance on weddings. Here are some ideas that might help as you perform these ceremonies on a regular basis. Philosophy You need to have a clear and defined philosophy about performing weddings. Since the function is not described or prescribed in Scripture, some ministers take the position that performing weddings is not strictly a “ministry” function. They see their role as nothing more than an agent of the state, much like a justice of the peace, in this regard. Thus they will perform weddings for just about anyone, member or non-member, Christian or unchurched. For some, this can become a significant source of extra income. Other ministers believe very strongly that......

...MOHAMED NEDALI Time to Accept the Unacceptable A CHAPTER FROM THE NOVEL MORCEAUX DE CHOIX: LES AMOURS D’UN APPRENTI BOUCHER, TRANSLATED FROM THE FRENCH BY ANDRÉ NAFFIS-SAHELY Narrating Marrakech y name is Thami. My nimble fingers and long years of experience as a butcher have earned me the prestigious title of M’allem, or master. By taking up this trade, looked down on this land of the Lord God, I unwittingly broke away from my learned ancestors – a long line of illustrious, learned scholars that counted two imams, a judge and an adel1 among its members. One of my ancestors, whose wisdom the Almighty saw fit to bestow upon me, had once been a prominent Qur’anic commentator, whose writings are still routinely quoted in many religious schools across the country. My father, a respected adel in the Marrakech medina, as well as a widely-read man, took a long time to come to grips with reality before finally acquiescing to my inexplicable desire to deviate from this ancestral path. In his darkest hour of despair, he once told me that I was the shameful offshoot of a scholarly line, “his” line, which had been admired and venerated by generations of Marrakchis. At times, he also called me a l’arech l’medloul, the disgraceful and ignoble scion, or a temra l’fasda – a bad apple, worm-ridden and good for nothing, unsuitable even for pack animals. But in the souk where I work, I’m usually referred to as Lewd Monkey, an annoying nickname that the local street urchins saddled......

Allegory and Irony in 'Othello' Antoinette B. Dauber

...ALLEGOR AND IRONY IN 'OTHELLO' Y ANTOINETT B. DAUBER E Othello is Shakespeare's Spenserian tragedy, in which the theme of slandere d chastity becomes a vehicle for exploring the problems of an allegorica l art . Allegory is the mode of selfconscious faith, and Spenser's corpus may be rea d as a portrai t of the artis t as allegorist , wrestling first with the burdens of selfconsciousness and then with the burdens of faith.l In Othello, Shakespeare compresses and objectifies this struggle. Unlike Spenser, he is not committed to the maintenance of allegory, and so he freely dramatizes the interna l weaknesses and external onslaughts that lead to its destruction. What I am calling the 'Spenserian ' quality begins with the chivalric elements in the tragedy. Truly, Othello is a kind of Savage Knight, Desdemona, the absolutely, almost miraculously, worthy lady, and Iago, something of a manipulator like Archimago.2 But more particularl y I would call attention to a specific engagement with Spenserian rhetoric . Consider Cassio' s words of welcome to the disembarking Desdemona: Tempests themselves, high seas, and howling winds, The gutter'd rocks and congregated sands, Traitors ensteep'd to enclog the guiltless keel, As having sense of beauty, do omit Their mortal natures, letting go safely by The divine Desdemona. (2.1.68-73)3 He sets her in the line of Spenser's heavenly allegories . As a parallel , we may recal l Una , slandere d by the arch-magician , abandone d......

La Ultima Cena

...La Ultima Cena In an ideal world, mankind would live in peace with all others. One could look to another person and judge them etiquette, moral or even social value. However, humans have gone through many dark times, usually involves the intolerance that mankind has for one another. Whether it is an disagreement on religion, a power struggle for land or the development of society, if there is one thing humans are consistent in is that we do not play nice. However, for people to judge each other on a superficial and meaningless factor such as color is truly bewildering, considering all the many things that makes us different. Because of this type of judgmental mentality, superiority complexes were soon followed, putting specific groups at the top of the food chain. Sadly, those of African descendance would bare the burden of being slaves, in every meaning of the words, to a vast majority of the world due the ignorance of the human race. The movie, The Last Supper, by Tomas Gutierrez Alea depicts the interaction and relationships of the denizens of a sugar plantation in Cuba during the eighteen hundreds. All from the Count to the overseer and slaves had ways of interacting with one another, which was mostly decided on their race and social status. The movie deals with various topics that defined that era in time and there are many reoccurring themes in the movie that can be seen in other periods of time and places. In this paper, many aspects of black culture will be......

France Period

...HISTORY OF FRANCE • 13th century Spreading the weight of vaults over a series of ribs, columns, and pilasters, Gothic architecture allows the dissolution of the wall. Windows in cathedrals and churches are filled with stained glass; the shimmering colored light transfigures the vast interiors. Depicting biblical stories, scenes from the lives of the saints, or single figures, stained-glass windows complement the sculptures on the exterior and the rites and ceremonies observed within. • 1209 The Albigensian Crusade is launched by Pope Innocent III with the help of Cistercian monks. While the original spark for this war springs from papal desire to extinguish the growing problem of heresy in the region surrounding Toulouse, the political struggle between the independent southern territories and lords from northern France, joined after 1226 by Louis VIII, plays itself out in a war. In 1229, Count Raymond VII of Toulouse, who had been Louis VIII's main adversary, is compelled to cede territory to the king's control. • ca. 1210–1250 Artists at Chartres install an elaborate and extensive program of stained-glass windows in the cathedral under construction there. In addition to religious and historical subjects, the intensely colored windows depict numerous scenes of tradespeople at work, including bakers, furriers, wheelwrights, and weavers. These tradespeople were likely contributors—through hefty taxes—to the construction of the church. • 1226 Louis IX (d. 1270),......
