Animal House Review

  • Posted on November 9, 2017 at 2:02 pm

Arriving on the scene in 1978, Animal House is the blockbuster frat house comedy that rewrote all the rules and created a generation of filmmakers hoping to replicate its comic genius. Original Saturday Night Live cast member John Belushi turned in a breakout film performance that made him a comedy rock star, propelling him to further fame with the release of Blues Brothers (1980). Tim Matheson also has his breakout role in the cult classic which features appearances by actors Mark Metcalf (“the Maestro” from Seinfeld), Donald Sutherland, and Kevin Bacon.

The film is set at fictional Faber College in the 1960s. Two incoming freshmen roommates, Larry Kroger (Tom Hulce) and Kent Dorfman (Stephen Furst), visit the various fraternities on campus in an effort to find a good group with which to socialize. But the two get more than they bargain for when the meet the guys of Delta House – a ragtag bunch of beer-swilling, womanizing, party animals. The group is the complete opposite of another campus fraternity, Omega House, headed by the snide, condescending preppies Greg Marmalard (James Daughton), Doug Neidermeyer (Mark Metcalf), and Chip Diller (Kevin Bacon). Favorites of Dean Wormer, the Omega House continually taunts Delta House and conspires with Dean Wormer to have the members of Delta expelled and their fraternity banned.

Leading the charge for Delta House is John “Bluto” Blutarsky (John Belushi), ladies man Eric “Otter” Stratton (Tim Matheson), and Donald “Boon” Schoenstein (Peter Riegert). Pledging Delta House, Larry and Kent are given the nicknames, Pinto and Flounder. Brought into the fold, they witness the true diversity of characters they are now brothers with. Otter seduces Dean Wormer’s wife, and Bluto spits egg on Greg Marmalard while Boon and his girlfriend work through their problems.

Things go well for the men of Delta House until Dean Wormer calls them into his office and places them on “Double Secret Probation”. With Omega and Wormer aligned against them, Delta House is kicked off campus and its members expelled. But the great men of Delta refuse to go down without a fight. With the Homecoming parade set to begin, they unleash a fury of revenge on Wormer and company.

At the conclusion of the film, we learn of the whereabouts of all the various characters. The timeless humor of this film makes it no wonder that it has ascended to cult classic status. An original and witty comedy wielding a trailblazing influence on teen/college comedies, Animal House has earned its place in the hallowed halls of American cinematic classics.

Lionel Model Train Sets; A Guide For Set Up

Lionel Model Train Sets; A Guide For Set Up
Following are some tips and guidelines for the maintenance and cleaning of your model trains. Whether your trains are Lionel or another manufacturer, any set benefits from regular maintenance to keep it running smoothly.

Lionel locomotives are designed in such a way that checks can be done by removing the cover. Remove the screw that is located under the smoke stack in order to remove the cover. Spread the diesel engine’s body at the sides until the pins release and pull upward gently. Then turn the engine upside down to access the wheels. Pare off any layers of dirt and grime with an X-acto knife. Finish by applying an eraser to the model’s wheels which will remove the rest of the debris.

Locomotives also require regular oiling of the moving parts to keep them working smoothly. Your owner’s manual will have instructions for applying the oil as well as the best oil to use. Take care that the oil does not drip onto the rails because oil can interfere with the electrical conductivity of the set and keep your train from functioning properly. A thin oil, such as a 3-in-1, is recommended.

Cleaning and maintenance should also be done on the commutator ad the brushes. Dirt can build up on these parts which will prevent the motor from getting electrical power. If left unattended, the locomotive will fail to work. Cleaning need be performed only about once a year, however. One technique for keeping the commutators clean is to run the locomotive slowly without the body. Apply Rail-Zip cleaner to a clean rag and apply the rag to the commutator while it spins. You will also need to clean the brushes. You can purchase television tuner cleaner from most electronics stores and use it to spray the brushes. Let the cleaning solution drip off and then dry the area by wiping with a clean rag. Put the body back on after you have cleaned it.

You should also perform maintenance on the wheels of the freight cars. Clean wheels are necessary for any Lionel model Train set to run smoothly. One way to clean the wheels is to mount a straight section of track on an 18-inch 2×4 board. Then, cover the heads of the rails with a rag or paper towel and slowly drip rubbing alcohol onto it. Place a few small drops of Goo-Gone on the rails prior to running the cars. Run the locomotive over the rails, back and forth until the wheels appear clean and glossy.

It is said that Lionel Trains are built to last. Customers report some of the highest satisfaction ratings in the industry. However, regular maintenance is important for any set to keep it functioning smoothly. Some regular maintenance can keep your train set running properly for years!

Maternity Photography – Preparation, Poses And Locations

  • Posted on November 9, 2017 at 11:08 am

Every woman and her husband want to see their maternity photographs most impressive and conveying. However there are no standards to judge the quality of maternity photography. All depends upon the personal liking and preferences. Even then, there are three major constituents of maternity photography. These are preparation, poses and locations. Even if you opt to hire the services of a professional photographer, you need to be involved actively at every stage. No photographer can deliver the best in desired way without the cooperation of model. It is the combined responsibility to get the best photographs of each and every session. As most of the expectant mothers are inexperienced for this activity, therefore they need basic guidance prior to the very first session of pregnancy photography.

First of all you need to prepare yourself mentally and physically both. You must be convinced with the benefits of pregnancy stage photography. You must try to involve your family members in to this act. It will eliminate all the shyness that you may face during the sessions. Apart from this, the involvement of family members makes the photographs more meaningful. Next important activity under preparation is the selection of dresses and makeup. No particular dresses are required. Open neck front open shirts, low belly jeans and short frocks etc are good to wear during the session. These dresses make the belly exposing easy during the photography session. As the maternity photography is aimed to capture your facial expressions and motherly look, so it is better to pose with utmost simplicity. Just sprinkle some talcum powder over the belly and hands. But do not put on dark facial makeup.

It may not be possible or feasible to follow the poses defined in the maternity photography books or shown at the concerned sites. It is you, who will think about and decide the poses according to your own liking. Do not pose too much stylish. Sitting on the bed or chair, standing straight, leaning little forward and lying over the bed and walking are the comfortable poses. Presence of children or husband gives you more ideas to pose. In any case do not compromise with your comfort. You may hold something beautiful in your hands. Flower bunch can be used to hide the body part that you do not want to hide.

Third important thing, you need to think about is the location. You have sufficient choices to choose according to your convenience. The first phase sessions should be held outdoor while the sessions at the later stage should be kept indoor or near the house. Garden, beach, park, terrace, amusement parks and bedroom are some ideal location.

Plan your maternity photography well ahead of first session or even before contacting the photographer. Do not allow him to govern you; instead discuss every issue with him open mindedly. Remember, getting good maternity photographs is a combined fun filled activity- it is not a task.
