Fried Green Tomatoes At The Whistle Stop Cafe - 1,259 words
Love is one of the most powerful forces in the world, and one of the most difficult to describe. It is one of those emotions that words do not seem to justify a person may feel it, but may not be able to explain it. However, that does not mean that people do not know that love is out there. Many people believe that everyone has one true love somewhere in the world, and spend their lives searching for that person. Love is not difficult to find though. It exists in many forms, including love between family members, friends, different races, and even the love for oneself, both in the novel Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe by Frannie Flagg and in one's own life. The first and most b ...

The Night Cafe - 898 words
Van Gogh had always been somewhat fascinated by the night. This fascination seemed to manifest itself further in Aries; Van Gogh often painted images of the night and nightlife during the night. He completed Cafe Terrace at Night as well as The Night Cafй. The Night Cafй was a further example of Van Gogh's belief that artists should "paint things not as they are...but as they feel them" (Philpott 40-41). Van Gogh had long associated particular colors with particular emotions. In The Night Caf, colors and the placement of objects are not necessarily presented accurately from a physical point of view, but The Night Caf is a depiction of Van Gogh's perception of the caf. Gauguin had ...

Modern Art - 831 words
The age of Modernism is from 1863- 1963. In modernism the artist rejected the traditional forms of expression and created a knew one. this meant that they were no longer looking and using the long standing European ways though. The new work produced in that era was modern. This new way of thought included streamlined, neat and forward looking design. Another aspect of the modern way was that some artist made emotional and very expressive paintings where the brushstrokes were visible and had the same importance in the work as the subject or people would. This was unheard of wrong in the traditional school of thought. One final aspect of modernism was that at the moment the artist rejected the ...

Lenny Bruce - 1,212 words
Lenny Bruce Leonard Alfred Schneider, or more commonly known as Lenny Bruce, was a comedian, a family man, drug addict, and philosopher. A conventional Jewish child from Long Island, who joked about homosexuality, drugs, religion, and race. Arguably, he paved the way for the comics of today, paying the price for being twenty years ahead of his time. Addicted to vulgarity and drugs he became a regular in courtrooms across America. The humiliation he caused a Philadelphia judge is thought to be another reason he spent so much time in court. His untimely death still stirs speculation of murder, rather than just another junkie that overdosed. Bruce was born on October 13, 1925 in Long Island, Ne ...

This planet has - or rather had - a problem, which was this: most of the people on it were unhappy for pretty much of the time. Many solutions were suggested for this problem, but most of these were largely concerned with the movements of small green pieces ...

A Clean Well Lighted Place A Play Of Light - 633 words
A Clean, Well Lighted Place is a story of lights and shadows, of the coexistence of ''being'' and ''nothingness''. An old man sits outside the cafe, on the terrace, where all the tables are empty except then one he sits at. He hides himself in the shadow - the perfect hiding-place, a hide-out for a person who wants to remain invisible and unnoticed to the people he observes. They - the observed ones - do not even feel his presence, so close and tangible, although there are some who know all about him. The undisturbed and untroubled peace of night is his ''prime time''. He feels the difference then. To a deaf person silence of the night brings relief and consolation after the day full of '' ...

Titanic - 2,477 words
I have always been intrigued by the Titanic, but my interest boomed with the recent development in how the side of the ship was damaged. I was amazed that instead of causing a gaping wound, as was previously believed, the iceberg that Titanic hit merely caused a series of small rips in the side of the ship. Sonar was used to determine that the side of the ship had six small slits that were no bigger than a single hand (http://www.titanic.cc/sonar.htm). This research amazed me because of the amount of water that passed through the small slits in the hull. I was always interested in ships, but the mystery that surrounded the Titanic sinking caused me to choose it for my senior project. At our ...

Patti Smith - 1,883 words
Born in Chicago and raised in Woodbury, New Jersey, just across the state line from Philadelphia, Patti's mother, Beverly, was a jazz singer cum waitress. Her father, Grant, worked at the Honeywell plant; she was the oldest of four siblings: her sisters Linda and Kimberly (the latter plays mandolin on Gone Again's "Ravens,"), and brother Todd. Unable to find her place in high school society, she took refuge in the images of Rimbaud, Bob Dylan, James Brown, and the Rolling Stones. Dropping out of Glassboro State Teacher's College, she headed for the bright -lights-big-city of New York. When she arrived in town, she met an art student named Robert Mapplethorpe and they moved in together. Patti ...

... heats up, furthering suspense while placing untested characters in such boiling heat that their lives can find expression only in explosive release or resignation. Their tempers flare as the temperature rises and it is not until they lose their composure that anything begins to cool. In Fitzgerald's stylish hands, heat functions to shape plot and test character. His acute recognition of the role of atmosphere in both furthering conflict and testing character is illustrated by his unwavering use of detail from first to final draft. From the beginning of these scenes to the end, we are made to feel the relentless heat as clearly as we see the green leather seats in Gatsby yellow car. Fitz ...

Germany - 1,630 words
Europeans and Americans have much more in common than most people think, making adjustments to life in a new country easier. Many customs are similar to practices in the United States. Germans have their own way of being German. Germany is a relatively small and densely populated country. Unlike the United States, which is a large, densely populated country. The greatest shock to Americans is the speed at which Germans drive. The roads and freeways are quite narrow. Speed limits in cities are strictly enforced, but on much of the Autobahn there is no limit on how fast drivers can go. Although it is against the law, impatient Germans may also tailgate at high speeds and/or flash their headlig ...

Jumpin At Joes - 338 words
On a crowded Friday night, I found a lively spot with sweet smells and even sweeter sounds. Joe's Be-Bop Caf, located on Navy Pier at 600 E. Grande, is a Cajun, jazz-inspired restaurant whose atmosphere separated itself from the noisy shuffle of the pier. Upon entering the restaurant, I saw murals and collages on the walls that had a '50s and '60s style, and pictures of every jazz musician you can think of. The Skinny Williams Band was belting out fabulous music, while he crossed the room, greeting the patrons of the restaurant. My date and I were seated immediately, which seemed strange for a Friday night, but it was definitely not a reflection on the service. The waitress was very friendly ...

As the dances were performed publicly more often, laypersons adopted and modified the movements. Through caravans and trading vessels different cultures witnessed the simplified dances and returned home with a new and exhilarating form of movement dedicated to personal expression. The more simplified dances also dispersed throughout Spain when Indian gypsies followed Moorish armies during their conquest of Spain's southernmost province, Andalusia, during the 6th century. The modified Indian dances arrived with these unique cultures and a distinct dance style was esta ...

I spent my second night in a youth hostel in Paris last night. I arrived in Paris around 6:00am local time two days ago. The flight from LAX to Orly airport was ten about hours long. It wasn't so bad, though. There was nobody sitting next to me and a nice, elderly French lady two seats away. The charter flight that I flew on was run by a French airline, and it seemed that the majority of the passengers were French-speaking. When we were taking off from LA, all of the announcements were in both French and English, but the frequency of the English announcements seemed to decline as we got farther and farther away from the United States. Customs was amazingly simple. I breezed right though, and ...
