Amateur: Any golfer who plays the game for enjoyment and who does not receive direct monetary compensation due to his or her playing or teaching skills
me like to be an amateur in that way in cinematography. for enjoyment. not receiving direct monetary compensation. due to skills? the last one a bit tricky. me don't know if me am in that way an amateur or a pro. the three in a hole should give the answer. to a lot of people. and not only the answer, also the belief they (almost) always believed... being trustworthy sometimes hard to cope with... and sometimes lifting you up were it all happens

neurology of vision

the reticonocortical component of the vizual pathwar extends from the retina to the primary visual context. the retina converts focused light rays into neural signals and enhances the contrast between viewed objects and surroundings. these enhanced signals are then transmitted via the lateral geniculate body to the primary visual cortex, where luminance, color, and position features are seperately processed.

lars von trier / europa

von trier? that's europa...
discover if you already haven't
Spectacular film! Von Trier is one of our few great contemporary artists, and this film shows what he can really do without the (later) self-imposed restraints of the indy-uber-alles Dogma film manifesto – location shooting with no effects or enhancements, etc.. EUROPA is all an effect, capturing the feel of expressionistic B&W films better than David Lynch or anyone else. There are sets, models, and even some hand-tinted color effects. The opening alone is hard to top – the audience is LITERALLY hypnotized by Max Von Sydow's voice, and the voice recurs throughout the film taking the audience and protagonist to deeper and deeper levels of trance nightmare, as if Nazism is the underlying reality of Europe, or the essential nature of the subconscious. The plot: An American of German descent arrives in post-war Germany 1945 with little sense of how desperate a world he's entering. His uncle gets him a precious job on the Zentropa train line as a sleeping car conductor. Caught up in a convulsing society but he finds himself being used by both the Americans who are hunting left-over Nazis and the influential family that owns the railroad. After falling in love with the railroad magnate's daughter, he begins to lose his neutrality, as she draws him into the shadowy surviving Nazi terrorist underground of "The Werewolves." That's not as silly as it sounds – there really was a proto-nazi underground call The Werewolves.) Von Trier pitched a fit when EUROPA didn't win the Cannes Palm D'Or, but 1991 was a great year for movies. (EUROPA finished second only to BARTON FINK, a similar film that's even a tad better than this one. Von Trier had won Cannes Best Director the previous evening, for chrstsakes! Starring Jean-Marc Barr, Barbara Sukowa, Udo Kier, Erik Mørk, Ernst-Hugo Järegård, Jørgen Reenberg, Henning Jensen, Eddie Constantine.

PAULINE KAEL ON “MASCULINE FEMININE”Masculine Feminine is that rare movie achievement: a work of grace and beauty in a contemporary setting. Using neither crime nor the romance of crime but asimple romance for a kind of interwoven story line, Godard has, at last, created the form he needed... essay, journalistic sketches, portraiture, love lyric and satire.

Marriage is a great institution, but I'm not ready for an institution.
Whenever I'm caught between two evils, I take the one I've never tried.
When women go wrong, men go right after them.
When I'm good, I'm very, very good. When I'm bad, I'm better.
I feel like a million tonight --- but one at a time.
Women with pasts interest men... they hope history will repeat itself.
It is better to be looked over than overlooked.
It's not the men in my life that count, it's the life in my men.
Loves conquers all things except poverty and toothache.
I believe in censorship. I made a fortune out of it.
To err is human, but is feels divine.
Virtue has its own reward, but no box office.
It's hard to be funny when you have to be clean.
I used to be Snow White -- but I drifted.

    mythos and logos

    Brent Dean Robbins dedicated to the promotion of existential-phenomenological philosophy, psychology and literature, as well as psychoanalytic thought, perennial philosophy, myth & metaphor
    The title of my portion of the presentation is "Putting Ourselves Out of Business: Implications of Levinas for Psychology." I want to make the case that a psychology and psychotherapy based on a Levinasian ethics is a psychotherapy that does not exist to perpetuate itself. Rather, it is a psychotherapy for the Other. And not only is it a psychotherapy for the Other, it recognizes that its responsibility for the Other is bestowed not just for the Other but by the Other. Our freedom as psychotherapists is a freedom given by and for the Other. If it weren't for the Other, we would not be given the privilege of our responsibility as psychotherapists. In other words, our profession is a gift from the Other.
