David   Gustafson David Gustafson's blog:
Whether it is "Gone With The Wind" or "Baby, It's Cold Outside," historical context is always a point of detachment with fascists, whether they are storm troopers or social media turd-squeaks.

In the end, history always spits out censorship's big, big moments.

David    Craig David Craig's blog:
It occurred to me recently that while films like Alien are a blend of horror and sci-fi, many of the classic horror stories shared this trait.

Frankenstein is the story of a man using science to try and cheat death, not that his creation has any reason to thank him. It's a cautionary tale about sc... Read more of this blog post »

自学吉他教程,用这个 App《闯过了这三岛屿,你就学成了吉他》

人们很容易沉迷于游戏,却很难成迷于学习。许多人都尝试拿起吉他,又屡次放弃,因为乐理,和弦,每一个学起来都不容易。但是每次看到会弹吉他的人弹奏自己喜欢的歌曲时,又觉得他们很帅,也想和他们一样可以弹奏自己喜欢的歌曲。所以每次经过音乐中心,都会看看里面的乐器,想买一支来学习。


经过几次的挣扎,就在那天,你下定决心买了心爱的吉他,然后照着自己幻想好的SOP去学习。哪里知道学习弹吉他不是和想象那样,每天练习1小时就可以学成的,因为你可能不知道原来弹吉他手指还会疼的。说好的每天1小时,变成了一天半小时,再变成了一天练一下和旋,最后被自己“工...

Her debut murder mystery, In the Woods , won rave reviews and multiple literary prizes upon its release in 2007. Since then, her books have tended to haunt the bestseller lists, on both sides of the pond, and for months at a time. British newspaper The Independent has dubbed French "The First Lady of Irish Crime," and The Washington Post says she is the most important crime novelist to emerge in the past ten years. ...more
