Jorg or Jalan?

 

The Broken Empire series by Mark Lawrence is amazeballs.

 

9633225

 

I have finished reading the series but I don't think I will be reviewing it...like ever. It is just too amazing for me to put it into words!

 

Anyway, the author designed a fun quiz that tells you which character from his series you are like.

My result:

2 parts Jalan, 1 part Jorg

 

Discretion is the better part of valour, and besides, you have a hot date waiting. Wine, women and song are occasionally worth fighting for but there's plenty of them to be found around the next corner and only one of you.

 

You're here to have a good time. You'll stick your neck out if you really must, but couldn't someone else do it?

Take the quiz here!

Jeff Bezos' Space Company Sets Date for Passenger Flights

 

If you have a few hundred thousand dollars to spare, then perhaps you might consider taking a space flight with Jeff Bezos' space company, Blue Origin. Interested?

 

The founder of Amazon told reporters on Tuesday that his company plans on offering space flights by 2018. Paying clients can expect to fly "more than 62 miles above Earth, high enough to experience a few minutes of weightlessness and see the planet set against the black sky of space." 

 

Here's an animated journey of what adventurers can expect to experience: https://www.blueorigin.com/astronaut-experience#youtube-YJhymiZjqc

Copyright Clash Over Demon-Fighting Stories

    

 

Author Sherrilyn Kenyon, best known for her Dark-Hunter series, has filed suit against author Cassandra Clare, author of the popular Mortal Instruments series, for copyright and trademark infringement. According to Kenyon, the:  

"Shadowhunter series initially used Kenyon's trademark 'darkhunter.' After Kenyon demanded that Clare remove the word 'darkhunter' from her work, Clare used the term 'shadowhunter' for her protagonists instead, according to the lawsuit. The word 'hunter' was also removed from the book title.


 Clare's book, The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones was published in 2007. Since then, Clare has expanded her use of the term 'shadowhunter' despite assurances that she would not, according to Kenyon.


 Clare's 2007 book was made into a movie and released in 2013, the lawsuit states. In 2014, it was reportedly announced that Mortal Instruments: City of Bones would be adapted into a television series called Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments.


 Kenyon says ABC Family picked up Clare's TV pilot in March 2015. The first episode of the Shadowhunters TV show premiered on Jan. 12 of this year, according to IMDB.


 The Dark-Hunter author also claims Clare has used symbols and merchandise  that are confusingly similar to Kenyon's."

Kenyon also states there are many similarities between her story and Clare's story. However, she is not claiming plagiarism.

 

Author Courtney Milan took a look at the court documents and makes a great case for why Kenyon's suit may not have merit: https://twitter.com/courtneymilan

I was listening to music today, as I do whenever I clean the house, and thought it would be fun to share one of the songs with you guys. 

 

"Un Beso" ("One Kiss").

 

 

"Un Beso" is a beautiful love song by the group Aventura. The song is about a man who has fallen in love after just one kiss.

 

  

The Genre.

 

Bachata (pronounced bäˈCHätä) originated in the Dominican Republic in the early-mid 1900's. Bachata started out as a mix of styles and rhythms: pan-Latin American bolero, African, and traditional Latin-Carribbean. Over time it has evolved, with artists like Aventura mixing in other elements, such as R&B and hip hop, creating what is known as the New York school of Bachata. 

 

 

The Dance.

  "Bachata music has four beats per measure. In Bachata dancing, the dancer takes three steps to four beats of music. As with Salsa, the step timing is three steps and then a one-beat pause. The knees are flexed on the steps. Given its humble origins, the steps are flat footed.

The chasse basic is three steps in one direction (side-close-side-tap or touch) and the same pattern in the other direction. Nightclub dancers add a lift or hip motion on the tap/touch step. The timing if called out sounds like "one, two, three, uh; one, two, three, uh."

The walking basic is similar, with the dancers walking forward and back rather than side to side."

The Lyrics.

 

Translated from Spanish to English:

 

There is a woman that dominates

my senses with only one touch

and like me, it can happen to another man.

That only with a kiss,
he could fall in love

Without the need of words,

Only by touching lips,
Cupid's arrow will find us

That only with a kiss,

with her I am happy

Only with one small kiss,

takes me to infinity,
and we only just met.

 

A kiss represents friendship, sex, and love
in any part of the world

regardless of religion
With only one kiss from her,

I am transported to heaven and speak with god
I reach the stars of emotion

Her mouth is sensual
It captivates and excites me

I never get tired of kissing her
Her tongue makes me weak
She knows all the tricks,

Tell me if there's someone else

that with only one kiss,
could make a man fall in love.
