Firefly's 15 Best Chinese Curses (and How to Say Them) ​In just 14 episodes, Joss Whedon's sci-fi masterpiece Firefly managed to build one of the most devoted fanbases in all of nerd-dom. Properties like Star Trek or Doctor Who may have it beat in sheer numbers, but the Browncoats make up for this with their loyalty and tenacity. What is the secret of the show's appeal? Fans can and will explain the show's engrossing plotlines, fascinating characters, brilliant performances, realistic effects, and a unique visual aesthetic -- but if we had to choose one reason, it'd be the dialogue. Whedon created a vision of a human future where mankind speaks English primarily, with Mandarin Chinese added, as one might say, for "flavor" (i.e., profanity). 15) Stupid Inbred Stack of Meat 笨天生的一堆肉。 14) Cow Sucking 吸牛 ・ Shee-niou While helping Simon and River first infiltrate, then escape from, a hospital on the affluent Alliance core world of Ariel, Jayne relieves a security officer of his sidearm: a non-lethal sonic rifle.

Sea of Skin The Man Behind The Curtain | | The WeeklingsThe Weeklings CHARLES WING KRAFFT, the self-taught painter turned postmodern ceramicist, is famous for his ‘Disasterware’ collection, a term he coined for the melding of violent, often Fascist imagery with tawdry vessels. He’s fashioned everything from ceramic grenades with bio-weapons decaled in antiquated blue to perfume bottles appliquéd with swastikas. Krafft’s work has been featured in prominent news outlets such as Harpers and The New Yorker and is on permanent display at the Seattle Art Museum. He’s received endowments from the Soros Foundation and the NEA. It wasn’t until recently, however, that Krafft’s ugly allegiances bubbled to the surface, mostly discovered via Facebook rants, podcasts, and interviews with some of his close friends. Then came an article by art critic Jen Graves in The Stranger, “Charles Krafft Is a White Nationalist Who Believes the Holocaust Is a Deliberately Exaggerated Myth.” Clark wasn’t the only one to speak up on the subject.

Here's Why These 6 Videos Went Viral A video is never guaranteed to go viral, but a few factors make it significantly more likely. In the first few months of 2013, viral videos covered all kinds of topics: a serious look at female self-esteem, a silly competition between two Star Trek actors, and more. But according to Brian Shin, CEO of video analytics service Visible Measures, these and most other viral videos share at least two things in common: "discussability" and "relatability." For a video to be "discussable," it usually features something shocking or surprising, which compels viewers to share it with others. We chatted with a couple viral video experts to learn what made these clips the biggest hits of the year, so far. Dove Experiment Dove's "Real Beauty Sketches" video is by far the most popular video of 2013 to date, with nearly 54 million views on YouTube and about 68 million views across the web, according to data from Visible Measures. Shin believes a few factors played into this video's success. Harlem Shake

Marina Abramovic, créatrice en Art corporel. Eléments d’une biographie 1Marina Abramović est née à Belgrade en 1946. Elle étudie à l’Académie des Beaux-Arts de Belgrade de 1965 à 1970 et choisit rapidement l’Art corporel. Elle s’est lacérée, flagellée, a congelé son corps sur des blocs de glace, pris des produits psycho-actifs et de contrôle musculaire, elle s’est mise en danger. Cependant, le but de cette artiste n’est pas le sensationnel. 2Ces actions se veulent des rituels de purification, conçus pour sa propre libération. Clio : Pour commencer, nous souhaiterions vous demander si vous vous considérez vous-même comme une sorte d’héroïne dans le domaine de l’art, ou si, tout simplement tous les artistes, tous les performeurs ne sont pas des héros ? MA : C’est une question vraiment très complexe car, pour ma part, en tant que personne privée, je ne me considère pas du tout comme une héroïne,en aucune façon car cela supposerait que je me place dans une position égale à celle d’un artiste avec un grand A. Clio : La création est-elle un acte héroïque ?

The postmortem portraits of Phineas Gage A new artform has emerged – the post-mortem neuroportrait. Its finest subject, Phineas Gage. Gage was a worker extending the tracks of the great railways until he suffered the most spectacular injury. He became famous in neuroscience because he lived – rare for the time – and had psychological changes as a result of his neurological damage. His story has been better told elsewhere but the interest has not died – studies on Gage’s injury have continued to the present day. There is a scientific veneer, of course, but it’s clear that the fascination with the freak Phineas has its own morbid undercurrents. The image is key. The first such picture was constructed with nothing more than pen and ink. This Gage is forever fleshless, the iron stuck mid-flight, the shattered skull frozen as it fragments. Harlow’s sketch is the original and the originator. Gage rested as this rough sketch for over 100 years but he would rise again. It made Gage a superstar but it sealed his fate. He has gentle flesh.

Drawing on Pigs: Wim Delvoye's Art Farm | viz. (Image Credit: Wim Delvoye ) It's pretty easy to understand (and probably join in) the outrage surrounding Wim Delvoye's work with pigs. Tattoos aren't exactly taboo in any real fashion anymore, but even as commonplace as they've become they still seem to provoke discussions about the use of bodies as writing platforms. In casual conversation clothes don't have nearly the same effect; though, it could be argued that they write on the body just as much as any tattoo. Of course, dressing a pig everyday would surely, almost undeniably, have a more noticeable impact on a pig's life. "To tattoo a pig, we sedate it, shave it and apply Vaseline to its skin" (Delvoye in a 2007 interview in ArtAsiaPacific found at Sperone Westwater ). Wim Delvoye worked his way up to live pigs. Delvoye is a vegetarian, but he both consumes and offers these pigs up for consumption as art.

Be an Information DJ - Matthew Lieberman by Matthew Lieberman | 1:02 PM November 27, 2012 When President Obama considers how to mobilize opinion and persuade Americans to support his agenda, we can be sure he’ll want to tap the power of changing minds by understanding what makes ideas go viral. In building support for tough, difficult issues such as deficit reduction and tax policy, the Obama team will want to know more about how buzz works in the brain. At the Neuroleadership Summit 2012 held in mid-October in New York City, Art Kleiner, editor-in-chief of Strategy+Business magazine, joined me as we presented research casting new light on conventional thinking many of us have about buzz. Significantly, we’re finding out that what makes ideas contagious has more to do with how we think about ideas than what we want to achieve with them. Buzz is extraordinarily important because as social beings humans crave communication, and buzz spreads ideas like wildfire. Memes are ideas, and ideas aren’t ideas without people.

Why the 'The Hunger Games's Snub of 'Battle Royale' Matters Hollywood's next likely blockbuster, The Hunger Games, is set to open this Friday, March 23. This work is unique from past remakes or adaptations of Asian stories in that its creator denies any knowledge of the classic Japanese book (1999) and movie Battle Royale (2000), with which it shares extraordinary parallels. Both movies feature a corrupt totalitarian government that places children on an isolated island to fight brutally to the death using weapons packs, until one last winner emerges. They implant tracking devices into the children and fill the island with cameras, which are observed by a control room that airs the competition to the general population. This isn't the first time Hollywood has made minor modifications on an Asian story and marketed it as a novel piece of art. Casting the right actors is imperative when adapting a novel for the big screen ... Wow, you couldn't make this stuff up. And in case you're wondering, that's a myth. ‘The Hunger Games,’ a Japanese Original?

Publicidad viral: La comunicación por contagio Mònika Jiménez Morales (Universitat Pompeu Fabra) Citación recomendada: Mònika Jiménez Morales. Publicidad viral: La comunicación por contagio [en linea]. "Hipertext.net", núm. 6, 2008. < 1. 1. Cuando en 1994 una pequeña editorial americana publicó un libro titulado “Media Virus”, lo cierto es que muy pocos supieron ver, al menos de entrada, el impacto que la publicación tendría para las nuevas generaciones de publicitarios y, obviamente, de consumidores de todo el mundo. De forma similar a las propias teorías del autor, la existencia de la obra “Media Virus”, se fue difundiendo en un meteórico boca-oreja, de manera que el libro llego a ser un best-seller en pocos meses. 2. Este es el formato elegido por muchas de las campañas publicitarias que, en los últimos años, han desbancado en efectividad a las formas de publicidad convencionales. 3. 4. La segunda en ocupar el ránking de los más reenviados ha sido la sede neoyorquina de la agencia americana J. 5. 6.
