Lisa's Nostalgia Cafe - Lisa's Silent Movie Page 1900 -Motion pictures are a regular part of vaudeville shows, and kinetoscope machines can still be found in most penny arcades and amusement parlors. The movies are very short, and usually consist of nature shots (breaking waves), action shots (trains & street scenes), brief comic interludes, short variety acts, current events (the Spanish-American War) and boxing matches (which prove extremely popular). These snippets of real life are known as actuality films. 1901 -Edison builds the first indoor glass-enclosed studio. 1902 -The birth of movies as we know them. They no longer simply record the world around us; they begin to tell stories as well. 1905 -The idea of the Nickelodeon is born. 1907 -Nickel Madness! 1907 -Already, people are worried about the impact these "nickel emporiums" are having on the public. 1910 -Up until this time, the performers appearing in motion pictures are usually stage actors who consider it "beneath them" to do movies. 1913-1918 -Movies come of age.

11 Animated Shorts in Mexico's Indigenous Languages 11 Animated Shorts in Mexico's Indigenous Languages To residents of the Americas, Europe can seem like a tower of Babel with dozens upon dozens of languages crammed into a small geographical space and vying endlessly for dominance or survival. On this side of the world things are much simpler: English, Spanish, Portuguese, French, and a few Dutch speakers make communication generally much smoother across the continent, along with a few New World Patois thrown into the mix for good measure. At least so the thinking goes. In reality, the American continent is a place of vast linguistic diversity, with more language families found solely in Mexico than in the entirety of the European continent. And with each language comes a particular vision of the world, an inimitable expressivity, a treasure trove of wisdom accrued over the centuries and codified in words and idioms. Yet these languages struggle desperately for survival in the midst of a post-colonial landscape dominated by a small handful of European languages. [h/t: Global Voices]
Binge watching good commercials can be just as entertaining as the shows! Thanks to the #langchat community, here are some great videos to get you started. Plus I added a few follow up activities that you can use immediately. “I can” Statements Here are some generic “I can” statements that could be used with most of these commercials. I can describe a commercial.I can tell how a commercial makes me feel.I can give my opinion about a commercial.I can identify products and practices from the culture.I can explain how a commercial reflects the perspectives of the culture. Note: If you keep this in the target language, then you are doing so much to support our 5 C’s! Authentic Resources I encourage you to watch the videos, especially if you do not speak the language fluently. French Merci to Wendy Farabaugh for sharing this sweet one.

Il futuro è verticale - Link Se lo smartphone ci presenta il mondo in forma verticale, tocca prenderne atto. E così gruppi editoriali e pubblicità stanno sperimentando il nuovo formato video. Partiamo con una domanda: state leggendo questo pezzo su un pc o sul vostro smartphone? Se lo leggete sul cellulare, le probabilità che lo stiate facendo tenendolo in posizione verticale (e scrollando il testo con il pollice) sono molto alte. Stando ai dati del MOVR (Mobile Overview Report), gli utenti di smartphone reggono i loro telefoni in posizione verticale per il 94% del tempo. L’articolo ha un titolo emblematico: “Sì, è arrivato il momento di prendere sul serio i video verticali”. I numeri sono incontrovertibili: il mobile video è in piena esplosione. L’intrattenimento è mobile Ma è nato prima l’uovo o la gallina? La relazione tra consumo ed evoluzione tecnologica è sempre stata fluida, marcando l’intrattenimento. Gli esperimenti in verticale delle tv tradizionali… … e quelli delle imprese digitali

8 important TV shows that were lost or destroyed One TV network dumped its entire collection into the sea. Image: NBC It took a while for networks and studios to fine-tune how to preserve the television shows they produced. The primitive method for broadcasting meant a lot of early shows didn't make it past the 1950s. Whether it was due to low-quality film, live broadcasts or negligence by the networks, these eight television shows have been lost or destroyed. Do you remember watching any of these shows? Mary Kay and Johnny The series broke ground as the first television show to feature a couple sharing the same bed, but it's also noticeable for only having one episode still in existence. The entire DuMont Network Mary Kay and Johnny wasn't the only television program from the 1950s to go missing. Television actress Edie Adams testified at the Library of Congress that the episodes were dumped into Upper New York Bay during the 1970s because they were deemed insignificant.

10 missing-feared-lost TV shows More lost than the ill-fated passengers of Oceanic Flight 815, many classic episodes of cult TV are sadly absent from the archives – missing, presumed wiped. The back catalogues of inspired programmes that had millions of spellbound viewers carbon-fused to their sofas every week back in the 1950s, 60s and 70s are now in a sorry state. Like the admirable traits of Red Dwarf's Arnold Judas Rimmer, episodes are painfully noticeable by their absence, thanks to a general policy among broadcasters of junking shows to re-use valuable videotape and save space on their shelves. Doctor Who He might have saved Earth more times than Superman on speed, but even the Doctor couldn't prevent the BBC from wiping a huge proportion of his early adventures out of existence. To Who fans the saddest loss is probably The Tenth Planet part four (1966).
