Shame Film Michael Fassbender and Steve Mc Queen

God I just watched Shame the film starring Michael Fassbender ,it was brilliant ,it was so dark and the main character and hes sister in the movie came across as tortured souls.Its was film beautiful ,so many silent moments ,with just the main characters thoughts and the piano playing. Its definitely inspire me to do a short film ,

Its was written by Steve McQueen,hes definitely a tortured soul , if he can write that well and translate that to screen he's got to have some demon's in the closet .The film reminds me ,that sometimes the pain threats to overcome you ,choking out your breath.Its only the will to see another day that keeps the heart beating.

Also hes got a fine arts degree and I think you can see it by the way he filmed this movie ,l'll have to watch more of hes movies from now on,l hope he gets an Oscar and Michael Fassbender for a great film

Steve McQueen (Black British Director) 12 Years a slave ( Sexist Michael Fassbender )

12 years a slave is a film director by a British Black Director Steven McQueen and surprisingly , I have never heard of this director before.This is no surprise as Britain came be a racist, classium ,sexist country ,where racism,class and gender equality is sweep under the carpet and where there ruling class prevail and anyone else needs are forgot. The fact that this film has been heavy promoted because it depicts black people as slaves again is not a consequences ,this is institutional racism at work ,Steve made lots of films but none have got the promotion that he's film 12 years a slave got.This film plays into the idea that blacks are nothing but slaves and only here to serve the white ruling class.

This isn't a criticism of Steve as a director but as I would like to see the film as it looks good but it shows you how little infrastructure of Black Britain has to promote films made by black people and how little we  use are pocket to support black actors,directors when they film comes out. Most of us don't even get to see the film in the cinema ,as it has limited release then goes straight to DVD. And then it is claimed to be a commercial failure even though no body hardly knew about the film.

This is a sad story of how black people's are treated in the film industry, on a positive note what l can see of Michael Fassbender and the other actors in the trailer,comes across like there some excellent acting in the movie.So I'll have to do a review when I see the movie, Let's raise a glass to Steve Mc Queen

The battle of the webcams Logitech C270 vs Microsoft HD6000

The first webcam I brought was Logitech C270 , l brought it from Amazon to film YouTube video's for my youtube channel.I must say I loved it ,the video quality is lovely ,clear and the software work's very well and its takes lovely picture's .The only thing I didn't like about it ,was it didnt rotate so I couldn't change the view while filming ,but apart from that its a great webcam to start filming YouTube video's with.

But unfortunately after two years I broken it ,I was constantly dropping it,so I brought the Microsoft HD6000  webcam instead
It was cheap and it could rotate 360 degree's and did hd filming.When I got hold of it and started using it the software was a nightmare ,it wont open unless I turn down the screen resolution on my Acer netbook and it refuse to open at all on my laptop even though their both running Window 7 .
Also while filming its constantly re focusing, the only way to turn it off this feature is to go into the software and  turn it off. I wouldn't recommend buying it ,its a nightmarethe video filming quality not as nice as the Logitech C270 colour's,on the video look wash out and the video's not as sharper .Its a waste of money so when Christmas comes I'm going to have to buy another webcam .

Budget Travel with Ryan air

There's a day when a girl just needs a holiday.My holiday came after nine years of waiting.Why It took me so long to go on holiday,only god know's,but I finally went away to Germany, for a week in September 2009  I had a great time.And that's why I feel compelled to write this piece, l always thought that you had to have lots of money for a holiday and it had to be on a beach in Ibiza,to enjoy yourself. Buts its not true, people tend to think like that because conventional wisdom or let's say mass marketing of 18 to 30 holidays,say Ibiza , Ayia Napa or Balearic Islands are the place to be.Its a load of bullshit.
If like me your just dying to get out of country,you live on a budget, then Ryan air or Easy jet are the airlines for you.

I always carry a weeny small suitcase with me and post anything back to myself if it wont fit in my weeny teeny suitcase.

Ryan air has a bad reputation but I've never had any problems with them,happy flighting
