I am a lot of things. Having collected an odd number of skills (irrelevant for the business world) I now work in a collectible design and art gallery.

    The Narrative of Journey (2012)

    Analyze how the narrative, or lack thereof, works for the videogame Journey (2102). If traditional storytelling is not applied (such as the use of a narrator or text during the game), then how does the game use alternative narration techniques that make the story memorable and enjoyable?

    • If you needed other works to compare this to, you could draw on silent film and Pixar shorts. – Turner Campbell 4 years ago

    This article really makes me look at the novel in a new way. Although I always thought that Miranda was trying to turn Clegg into a man of sensibility, domesticating him in a way that might help her escape. It did make her seem as a misguided heroine that has a naïve idea about her captor and the result was not a happy one.

    Distorted Class in John Fowles's The Collector

    I really liked your article. It does point out some of the main reasons why LBD worked. One of the reasons that I thought made it more successful than any other adaptation I’ve seen is that is keeps the humor in the books while other P&P adaptations make is all seem so series.
    For me that combination of humor and family drama really made LBD one of the best P&P adaptations I’ve seen in a very long time.

    As a literature student I get it, Shakespeare is wonderful! Nonetheless, when you are forced to read something in class some of its magic evaporates.

    The problem with Shakespeare is the language, not all kids are willing to look past it to understand the core of his stories. So I do think adaptations like 10 Things I hate about you and O are very good introductions to the world of Shakespeare, and also, an enthusiastic literature loving teacher can help the cause.

    The Obscure Shakespeare

    I think this article is very relevant. I wished these sort of superheroes had more press. When I read the title I immediately begun to make a list of those I could name, and most of them where villains, starting with the Blob and the Kingpin. I really couldn’t remember any superheroes that were overweight. Then I thought perhaps of gag superheroes, such as Arthur from The Tick who isn’t really overweight, but he isn’t fit either.

    This article featured overweight superheroes, which I feel are lacking in our culture. Overweight in comics is usually given to villains and uncles, fathers and everyday humans. That’s why I think that superheroes like Faith are important.

    Overweight Superheroes and Supervillains

    I enjoyed the article, it bring to movie into new light by addressing subjects that concern comic book fans. When I watched the movie I though that one of the main problems was the plot. For example Batman and the use of prolepses through his dreams. I felt that it was both time consuming and underdeveloped. Yes, it might set the pace for the rest of the franchise, but it still felt lacking.
    Also, the “friendship” between Batman and Superman feels extremely superficial. Specially the part when Batman saves Martha Kent and introduces himself as a friend of her son. That felt like awkward story telling to me. First this characters hadn’t officially met until their big fight; then they fought for about 10 minutes and “bonded” over their mother’s names; and then suddenly they are besties?
    Unfortunately the movie is filled with moments like that, underdeveloped and lacking in plot and storytelling.
