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
Self Discovery: Chapter 34"Is she here yet? Is she here yet? Is she here yet?" I bounced up and down, trying to contain myself as Darin stood on a ladder, attempting to hang up a Happy Birthday banner. Somehow, he'd managed to convince Murphy to let us throw my birthday party at Bollweevil. Murphy had even closed it for the day, allowing us to have the run of the place. I made a mental note to thank him for it later.Self Discovery: Chapter 34 by CarolinesEcho
"Dude, relax. Hannah will be here. Has she ever let you down?"
"Then chill." He cautiously turned around, yelling over his shoulder. "Mellifluous! Little help here?!"
Mel twirled through the double doors that led to the kitchen, carrying a large box. "Coming Dare Bear!" She set the box down on a nearby table before skipping over and climbing the ladder that was opposite from the one Darin was standing on. "Yes Dare Bear?"
He sighed. "Mel, i need you on the floor. I need you to hand me balloons. I'd ask Les to do it, but she's to busy fretting over the fact that her girlfriend hasn't arrived y
Profile of a HoarderSummary: Classic hoarder mentality: never throw anything away.Profile of a Hoarder by CarolinesEcho
The bedroom had been abandoned. Old shutters slung off their hinges, while a tom and tattered curtain fluttered in the breeze. There had been a murder here, foul play, it had been ruled by the judge, not to mention the ME and PI. All various accounts, different in each detail.
The rusty bottle on the kitchen counter spoke of a place that hadn't been occupied in years, a foul odor still permeating the room. Ants crawled over the dirty floor, now making this their home, attracted by the rusty bottle as well as the rotting food in the garbage can next to the sink. A roach skittered out of hiding, desperate for water.
There were stacks and stacks of newspapers piled on the floor, with a makeshift walkway between them. A taxisermied mongoose and cobra sat on a nearby table, appearing ready for a showdown, while an ominous hawk watched from overhead. Whether the hawk was taxidermied or n
Self Discovery: Chapter 37We hit several rides that day. After waiting in line for the Haunted Mansion--and finally getting off about an hour later--we hit Pirates of the Carribean and Splash Mountain. Well, Hannah went on that one; I stayed behind and took a great photo of her coming down the waterfall. Which she wants me to burn, but it's still on my computer at home.Self Discovery: Chapter 37 by CarolinesEcho
She even made us dinner reservations at The Blue Bayou, the Cajun style restaurant that looks over the boats headed for the waterfall in Pirates of the Carribean. So, you know, your meal punctuated by joyful screams as a boat goes down the waterfall.
But for all that, my favorite part of the night would have to be the fireworks. We had originally planned on going to Fantasmic, but had decided on the fireworks instead. We figured it would be less of a crowd atfer the fireworks ended and that everyone would make a hasty retreat for the exit. At least, that's what we were hoping for.
"Okay, you stay here and save our seats. I'll be right back." Han
Self Discovery: Chapter 36Seven years later...Self Discovery: Chapter 36 by CarolinesEcho
"Hannah, come on! We're going to be late!" I yelled up the stairs to our room. "I thought you wanted to get there when the park opened?"
She appeared on the upstairs landing and yawned, placing a baseball cap on her head. "Yeah...didn't think I'd sleep that long."
"What? Did I tire you out last night?" I teased.
She finally hit the downstairs landing, wrapping me in a sleepy hug before pullng away. "That was one hell of a wedding night. Not sure I've recovered yet."
"Yeah, well, you know. The wedding and the romance and the..." I coughed awkwardly. "The urge. It all kinda came to a head."
"Yeah." She twirled the gold Claddagh ring on her left hand and I smiled, looking down at the matching ring on my left hand, the tip of the heart pointing towards me. "But you're mine now."
I looked up and smirked at her. "Oh yeah? And what are you gonna do about it?"
"This." She reached behind me, pinching my butt.
"What? We're married now. I think I can g
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.
