10 Reasons To Start Over

If you live anywhere on this planet you’ve probably heard the buzz over the so-called downshifting. More and more successful businessmen, artists and average office workers decide to leave the habitual environment and re-locate to the rural areas. Some people say that downshifting is for chickens and losers. Others believe that’s the only way to stay away from global social and economical issues and be really free and independent.

Apparently, many folks reckon that the escape will solve their problems and mere re-location alone is enough to start over. But what makes these people leave? Let’s try to classify the reasons.

Puppet Show – Make It Fun

The art of puppetry is a pretty ancient one as people used funny dolls for fun for what seems to be centuries. The birthplace of puppetry is considered to be Italy where rod and string marionettes were used to entertain citizens. Making performances with puppets is an excellent way to set both the children and adults laughing. If you are good at manipulating marionettes they will come alive in your hands and bring much fun to the audience.

First of all, you should define different types of marionettes in order to chose the one which suits you best. The most popular type is a string marionette. The strings are attached to the limbs and head of the puppet and you manipulate it from the above. Practice in front of the mirror first to make your puppet behave funny. Develop a unique manner of gestures and postures, create a character and story for your puppet hero – all these tricks will help to make it alive. If you attach additional strings to mouth, eye lids and chin of your puppet it will reflect the mimics of the human face as well.

Snow White & the Huntsman: A Modern Fairytale

Snow White & the Huntsman is a new version of a famous fairytale. Now a debutant Rupert Sanders decided to have a new look upon the old story. But the result received both positive and negative comment from the critics.

The most noticeable thing about the film is that it steps aside from all the canons which were established by the previous versions of the Snow White. This being unusual also was reflected in the alternation of the customary title. There is little left from the original tale. And that is the right way. If one starts repeating the old story he should at least bring in something new and fresh to his project, change the plot so that no one could say if it is copying the earlier versions or not.

Animals at the edge of extinction

Nature surrounding us has given us lots of wonderful issues to observe and think over. As a matter of fact, I think that the opportunity to live together with the wild world is one of the best that could be given by the Universe to every human-being.

Unfortunately, not all animals can make it here on the planet Earth. Some of them were eliminated by us, people, which is an unforgivable sin. Others can’t stand the climatic changes and the situation in the environment. Anyway. Here is the list of those animals which need our support and care, because we risk to lose the whole species which can lead to terrible consequences.

Music Which Enters You into Trance

Honestly, I can not think of more powerful thing in the world than music. It can cheer you up and make you fly in the heavens of your dreams or lead to the deepest depression you have ever had. Music follows us all the time – when we have fun we need it to make a real holiday, when we are sad we need it to sooth our hurt soul, when we are in love we want the whole world to turn into single melody of beauty, when our heart is broken…Okay, I guess you got the point. It is important to choose the music style which reflects your thoughts, your mood and your emotions, which suits your way of life. As for me, the music entered my life when I discovered trance.

Trance is a variation of electronic dance music which is characterized by the use of orchestration, soft female vocal and quick tempo. Some say that Trance music has originated from Germany with the help of “Age of Love” and Dag Lerner. There is also an opinion that this music appeared in the 1960s in India, with the development of Goa Trance. I think that this music exists for a long time as people always needed to relax under the soft and rhyme sounds which carry you away. The reason that Trance music became so popular only recently is that it perfectly matches the modern culture if club dance and DJs’ innovations and experiments with sound.
