This is another one of my all-time favourite movie scenes I had to cut and upload. Richard (Leonardo DiCaprio) and Francoise (Virginie Ledoyen) go for a night walk, as they fall in love with each other. Then they go swimming and kissing while in the background plays “Pure Shores” by All Saints. Beautiful movie, scene, song. By the way, do not miss the movie just because of its low IMDB rating. It is simply – magnificent. Enjoy

Shadow and Light is a documentary film about the life and art of Elaine Badgley Arnoux. The film examines seminal moments of her life; from her childhood traumas; two early marriages, moving to France at age 50 with her 27 year old lover and finally meeting the man of her dreams to grow old with. The enormity and scale of her life and art projects are revealing to the nature of the artist herself. She lives large and paints large with an appetite for life beyond the boundaries of her canvas and the walls of her studio. Making art is elemental to her being, and is a valiant attempt to come to terms with her own personal history and integrate it into her esthetics . “I had a very dark childhood, I was very old when I was young, I wasn’t young until I was old”. What drives Elaine Badgley Arnoux, a gifted San Francisco artist, in the twilight of her years, to work relentlessly to convey her vision of the people in her community through portraiture and the creation of paintings documenting the political upheaval of our time? Through the lens of a camera we come to understand Elaine’s story is a love affair with life. Art is the vehicle that has driven her process of self discovery and delivered her lost youth in old age.
What is the right number of praying the Qyamul Layl/ salatul tahajjud or Taraweeh? It is a clear understanding of all the sects that the prayer in the night in ramadhan is known to be the qyamul layl or taraweeh.

PART 3: “Blind Fate” is a sexy, stylized romantic-comedy thats a struggle between a divorcee and a writer…who happen to meet one another on a blind date and fall in love…well, sort of. Their isolated souls turn into a passionate love affair, as they go toe-to-toe, playing cat and mouse…and slowly falling back in love with life and each other…well, sort of. In the process — seeing, understanding and appreciating life and love for the first time in a long time. All in the midst of their chaotic lives. Their process is similar to the process of marriage therapy, which is intended to help a couple: initiate, interact, communicate compromise, adapt, and ultimately fall in love. However getting the two characters to meet in the film is a difficult task because of the obstacles they encounter.
timesofearth.com In his new memoir “Decision Points,” George W. Bush weighs in on the Iraq war, the financial crisis, Hurricane Katrina, John McCain’s 2008 campaign, and other episodes in his presidency. At some point, every ex-president — usually having waited a decent political interval — gives his own version of his time in office. It’s partly an attempt to frame history, partly a time to settle scores, always a way to make money by reentering the spotlight, if only briefly. This is George W. Bush’s week. His new memoir “Decision Points” will be available in bookstores starting Tuesday. There’s a round of TV interviews — Oprah Winfrey, Jay Leno, NBC’s Matt Lauer, Candy Crowley on CNN, radio interviews with Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity, several It’ll be a family affair, Bush’s parents, his wife Laura, and brother former Florida governor Jeb Bush will join him for some of the interviews Some reporters have obtained copies of “Decision Points” and snippets from prerecorded interviews are being advertised, so high points already are being pored over. Among them: Being photographed flying over the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina — without landing to personally assess the damage and comfort residents — was a “huge mistake.” It made him look “detached and uncaring, no question about it,” he told Lauer. Bush considered dropping Dick Cheney from the ticket in 2006 (perhaps replacing him with then-Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist of Tennessee) — an idea put forth by …

Theodor Herzl Benjamin Ze’ev (Theodor) Herzl (Hungarian: Herzl Tivadar, Hebrew: בנימין זאב הרצל (Binyamin Ze’ev Herzl)) (May 2, 1860 — July 3, 1904) was an Austro-Hungarian Jewish journalist who founded modern political Zionism. Herzl was born in Budapest, Hungary, but his family moved to Vienna when Theodor was 18. There, he studied law, but he devoted himself almost exclusively to journalism and literature, working as a correspondent for the Neue Freie Presse in Paris, occasionally making special trips to London and Istanbul. Later, he became literary editor of Neue Freie Presse,and wrote several comedies and dramas for the Viennese stage. The Leader of the Zionists It is widely believed that Herzl was motivated by the Dreyfus Affair, a notorious anti-Semitic incident in France in which a French Jewish army captain was falsely convicted of spying for Germany. Herzl had been covering the trial of Dreyfus for an Austro-Hungarian newspaper. He also witnessed mass rallies in Paris following the Dreyfus trial where many chanted “Death To The Jews!”, and in June, 1895, he wrote in his diary: “In Paris, as I have said, I achieved a freer attitude toward anti-Semitism… Above all, I recognized the emptiness and futility of trying to ‘combat’ anti-Semitism.” Song: Stout-Hearted Men sung by Nelson Eddy.

Buy full audiobook: www.qksrv.net Conservative shock-mistress Ann Coulter continues her pillorying of American liberals with a follow-up to Slander. In an argument that poses a challenge to conventional interpretations of the First Amendment, she argues that because liberals are wrong on every issue concerning political analysis or policy prescription, their politics amount to treason. Her analyses range from the career of Senator Joseph McCarthy to the Gulf War, from the Whittaker Chambers-Alger Hiss affair to the present war on terrorism, from the Nixon presidency to that of Clinton, from domestic to foreign policy. Coulter’s power derives not only from the consistency and thoroughness of her argument that “Liberals have been wrong about everything in the last half century”, but also from her over-the-top humor.

The Bolshoi Opera Orchestra & Chorus are conducted by Yuri Simonov. Starring: Alexander Vederniko, Irina Arkhipova, Evgeny Nesterenko, Evgeny Raikov Taped live at the Bolshoi Opera in 1979. Khovanshchina (Russian: Хованщина, sometimes rendered The Khovansky Affair) is an opera (subtitled a ‘national music drama’) in five acts by Modest Mussorgsky. The work was written between 1872 and 1880 in St. Petersburg, Russia. The composer wrote the libretto based on historical sources. Like Mussorgsky’s earlier Boris Godunov, The Khovansky Affair deals with an episode in Russian history, first brought to the composer’s attention by his friend Vladimir Stasov. In this case, it concerns the rebellion of Prince Ivan Khovansky, his Old Believer followers, and the Streltsy, against Peter the Great, who was attempting to institute Westernizing reforms to the country. Ultimately, Peter succeeded, the rebellion was crushed and (in the opera, at least) Khovansky’s followers committed mass suicide. Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov completed, revised, and scored Khovanshchina in 1881–1882. Because of the heavy cuts and “recomposition” at Rimsky-Korsakov’s hand, Dmitri Shostakovich revised the opera in 1959 based on Mussorgsky’s vocal score, and it is this version that is usually performed today. In 1913 Igor Stravinsky and Maurice Ravel made their own arrangement to Diaghilev’s request. However, Chaliapin refused to sing the part of Dosifei in other orchestration than Rimsky-Korsakov’s, therefore …
