Book Review: Jim Henson: The Works...Book Review: Jim Henson: The Works: The Art, the Magic, the ImaginationBook Review: Jim Henson: The Works... by CarolinesEcho
Prolific. It's a term meaning "marked by abundant inventiveness or productivity." It's a word I've been seeing a lot of lately, normally in regards to authors: "so and so is a prolific writer, producing a large volume of work over the course of his or her lifetime."
In my opinion, this word gets a lot of overuse. Yes, some writers are considered prolific, but I can think of someone else who I consider the word prolific to be a perfect fit.
That person is Jim Henson.
Jim Henson was an innovator in the field of puppetry. Constantly imaginative, he was always looking for new ways to improve the media and push its limits.
What started off as just simple hand puppets became much much more with the invention of such projects as The Muppets and Fraggle Rock, which were known the world over; to such things as Emmet Otter's Jug band Christmas and The Dark Crystal, which were revolutionary in their methods.
Book Review: Muppet MashBook Review: The Muppet Show Comic Book: Muppet Mash (The Muppet Show # 5) by Roger LangridgeBook Review: Muppet Mash by CarolinesEcho
The fifth volume of The Muppet Show Comic book by Roger Langridge, entitled Muppet Mash, gives us four stories centering around monsters and the supernatural.
In the first chapter, we have Gonzo's storyline. He's just gotten back from a vacation to Transylvania and is acting stranger than usual. And with the chickens appearing so dazed they're bumping into things, it's anyone's guess what's going on.
Chapter two focuses on Statler and Waldorf, the two curmudgeons who come to the show every night. This story finds them fighting for the affections of Calistoga Cleo, the beautiful guest star who is not what she appears to be.
Chapter three introduces us to Howlin Jack Talbot, an idol of sorts to the Electric Mayhem. An old singer, Jack seems to be pretty up on things. However, he has a secret of his own, which may not be as obvious as you think.
Chapter four, the final chapter in this compil
Book Review: The Giver by Lois LowryI was first introduced to The Giver when I was in seventh grade. My teacher read it to my class and I remember liking it. I remembered a world that was colorless, a main character who saw the color red in an apple, and a baby that meets a heart wrenching fate.Book Review: The Giver by Lois Lowry by CarolinesEcho
When the movie came out, I went to see it and, while I enjoyed it, I realized how little of the story I actually remembered. So when I got home that day, I cracked open the book for a second read through (now as an adult) and discovered two things:
1. I definitely did not remember the book as well as I'd thought.
2. The movie did not do the book justice.
What I rediscovered was a literary work of fiction filled with more backstory than the movie could ever hope to touch on; a protagonist who was brave and selfless and a book full of deep, serious themes that some might consider inappropriate for a work of children's literature.
The Giver tells the story of Jonas, a boy who, when he is twelve years old, takes on the assigned job o
How to Celebrate Valentine's Day if You're SingleValentine's Day is fast approaching and for many people, that means cards, candy, hearts, chocolate, dates and flowers. But what about those of us who are single? Do we just sit back and watch the most romantic day of the year unfold in front of us without celebrating?How to Celebrate Valentine's Day if You're Single by CarolinesEcho
Not at all. Single women can celebrate too. So here are some ideas on how to celebrate Valentine's Day if you're single.
Step 1: Find a single friend and hang out with them for the day. You can spend the day catching up, watching cheesy chick flicks or shopping.
Step 2: Pamper yourself. Have a spa day, or if you're not in the mood for it (or don't have the budget), then opt for a mani-pedi. Either way, make sure to pamper yourself, because you deserve it.
Step 3: Watch chick flicks. They can be cheesy, dramatic or funny. Or, for something different, watch an anti-Valentine's Day movie. Find a good action, adventure, horror, thriller movie. Just because it's Valentine's Day doesn't mean you have to watch romantic movies.
Hi there! I'm CarolinesEcho and this is my first time using DeviantART.
While I don't consider myself an artist by any means (given the fact that I can't draw), I do enjoy writing and photography. Although I don't do photography as much.
At this point, photography is definitely a hobby for me and while writing is too (especially writing fanfiction), I would love to get at least one piece of writing published in my life, just so I can say I did it if nothing else.
What you will get from me at this point is most likely original stories/poems, some fanfics (which may or may not have already been uploaded to my fanfiction.net account) and on occasion some photos, if I think they're any good. And on very rare occasions, some digital art as well. It may not be very good, but I do like fooling around with Microsoft paint and powerpoint every once in a while.
So onward and upward I guess.
