Urban Evolution | Our Warmup is Your Gym's Workout Parkour (“Park-oar”, or maybe “par-core” but never “park hour” and if you try and put “hardcore” in front of it, we’ll punch you) is a training methodology which focuses on movement in both natural and urban environments. The focus is to move over, under, around, and through obstacles elegantly, and with efficiency. So maybe you’ve heard of parkour before, and even seen some pictures or videos labeled as parkour, but what exactly is parkour? This video might help you understand! It’s not strictly defined by any particular workout or conditioning regimen. It’s more about finding the way to keep improving and eventually reach your greatest physical potential. So it does have its philosophical side, but here at Urban Evolution, we’ve come up a variety of ways to challenge you and hone your skills in a safe and fun environment. Urban Evolution offers many other classes as well. To get started, sign up for one of our 2-Hour Intro to Parkour sessions.
The Only Guide You Will Ever Need to Art Nouveau So a few of you shamelessly encouraged me to discuss Art Nouveau. I don't think you guys even knew what you were getting into. I love Art Nouveau. It's quite easily the single greatest influence on my art and general aesthetic... ever. And because I'm me, I couldn't just be like OH HERE ARE SOME PRETTY PICTURES. No. I should disclaim, before I start, that I am not an art historian. ART NOUVEAU 101(Or: Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Art Nouveau But Didn't Know To Ask Because No One Ever Told You How Awesome It Was) Part One: Art Nou-What The Fuck? Chances are, you are asking yourself right now "what the fuck is Art Nouveau?" By Alphonse Mucha That, at least superficially, is your answer. A Brief History of Art Nouveau Let's take a trip back in time. Alphonse Mucha was a beast. The thing about Art Nouveau that makes it so amazing is that it's just so different from everything that came before it. That's a design by Art Nouveau architect Hector Guimard.

TotallyCoolPix Amazing Underrated Obscure Bizarre Films PART 11 list I really dig this IMDB plot summary, it paints a mysterious picture to get you interested while not giving away anything crucial, it's like a good trailer: A psychiatrist, Richard Burton, investigates the savage blinding of six horses with a metal spike in a stable in Hampshire, England. The atrocity was committed by an unassuming seventeen-year-old stable boy named Alan Strang, the only son of an opinionated but inwardly-timid father and a genteel, religious mother. As Dysart exposes the truths behind the boy's demons, he finds himself face-to-face with his own.

Matt Wisniewski Stanford Artificial Intelligence Laboratory 5 Epic Sci-Fi Movies You Can Watch In Under 10 Minutes #2. The Silent City It's rare to get the full movie experience from a short. It's the nature of the medium. If that's not Cillian Murphy, I don't know who is (Crispin Glover?). But just because The Silent City nails atmosphere above all else, that doesn't mean it does a poor job at anything. So it's a shame that I can't enjoy this flick at all. It's like spotting your favorite NERF gun in Hunter Prey, or your old TV remote being used to hail the Enterprise. #1. Zombie movies have been done to death (undead zing!) With that in mind, Cargo does more for the relevancy of the zombie film in 30 seconds than the entire second season of The Walking Dead. The premise of Cargo (you're uh ... you're watching these before you read the write-ups, right?) If you're feeling wronged by nerds somehow and want justice, just make this movie well.
