We all have favorite anime in our minds, when we were just a child or even when we are at 20 of age or even at 60’s I guess hehe, but now I am going to tell you my top 5 Anime and I guess you should watch these list:

We will start it from number 5 to number 1 for the suspense. Again this is only my top 5 don’t be affected too much If I did not choose your favorite anime as number 1 in my list.

  1. Flame of Recca
    I usually saw this Anime since I was 7 years old  and it really COOL!! It is a story of a school guy name Recca Hanabishi that is pretending to be a ninja, he always got himself in trouble because he always said in public that who ever beat him will earn his service as a loyal Ninja, but to make the story short He really does become a real ninja with fire powers (8 FLAME DRAGONS)  He gave his service as a ninja to Yanagi Sakoshita the Girl with healing powers. Recca got in too many troubles just to save her princess Yanagi but ofcourse with the help of his powerful gang Watch this I’m sure it is worth your time.
  2. Ghost Fighter
    Well Ghost Fighter is the Classic!! the plot line is very unique. It is about Yusuke Urameshi (In Philippine TV it is EUGENE). from the beginning Yusuke really not thought that his life is not that valuable to others, he always got trouble in school and always been scolded by the school principal. Until one day he saw a boy that will be run over by the car, he does saved the boy but in exchange for it he was the one that got run over by the car, to make the story short he notice that he became a spirit and he saw those person that really cares about her existence and cry out loud seeing his dead body in the casket. His Ghost/Spirit was greeted by botan the woman who introduces herself as the pilot of the River Styx. The son of the underworld King Enma named Koenma gave Eugene a chance to proclaim again his life on earth by fighting against demon and by keeping the title underworld detective. You can watch it online if you are interested, now lets go to number 3.
  3. Dragon ball Z to Dragon Ball Super
    Dragon ball is really popular in the whole wide world not only in Asians but also in Western Country, Dragon Ball Z and Super is about Goku and his family/friends/relatives protecting the whole world from any attacks (mostly alien attacks) the Anime introduces martial arts as their fighting style. Goku and some of the other character are also aliens from other planet, Goku’s planet is planet Vegetta this is where most of the saiayans live but sadly it was destoryed by Frieza a villain, Ironically by the help of Gokus saiyan power and the love his Family/friends and relatives he fought victorious against those evils who want to destroy the earth and also gain revenge against Frieza who destroyed their own Planet.
  4. Sword Art Online
    Now lets go to Millenial Age, Sword Art Online is about RPG Game that came into life!! how cool is that!, the name of the main character is Kirito he is beater (beta tester and a cheter) the game has no log out option making the players stuck in the game until someone finished the game Sword Art Online.
  5. ONE PIECE
    Sorry Sword Art Online if I tell your story short I just got excited by One Piece :). Now lets go to my favorite I dont know how many years past since I started watching One Piece now the Episode is 818 how vast the story line of this anime is made by the great EIICHIRO ODA SENSEI hahahaha. The story is about a boy named Monkey D. Luffy wanting to be the king of the Pirates, he travels the sea in finding ONE PIECE (once you found it the world will declare you as the king of the Pirates. Luffy started the adventure by building his crew first, Zoro, Usopp, Nami, Zanji, Chopper, Brook, Robin, Franky. The story will give you laughter but also will make your tears fall, I don’t want to spoil you so just watch the episodes online. The story got also interesting because of the concept that Oda put into this Anime, getting information from other books and apply it to the story, the design of the place the story of the arch, the name of the characters, you will get amazed when many of those details comes from the history and current places that we can see in real life! So guys watch one piece !! I guarantee you time is not a waste watching this anime.

Money Earning Method

People earn money on internet or in practical field and behind it working formula is images and nothing is truth, truth and naked truth. Most of the people on internet to run their websites use copied and cheated materials pouring it a soft ware that changes its language to safe the articles from plagiarism.

Images: The Source of Earning Money

In this world less are creators and more are imitators is a law of nature because creative power is given to everyone on birth but unfortunately people destroy it using not it within a specific time thus the power of creation dies with the passage of time within man’s brain and thus are born imitators on earth the slave to clever person in all walk of life.

Think, there was a time when Yahoo Chat was famous on internet but after this creators chalked out a new plan to demolish Yahoo Chat the creators introduced a new type of social media Face Book and Twitter and now people use these two social medias forgetting Yahoo Chat and other old social medias is nothing but introducing a new idea in market to collect money engaging the readers in its spell all over the world.

Images: Blessings of God on Man

The readers must know that images earn money for man because images are blessings of God and His Ministry of Angels on man hovering over the head of man but men do not pay attention to them. Images live in human mind in guise of Angels. Good angels create good images for humanity and bad Angels create images for humanity as you see all over the world.

Have a eye for a minute on the world, you will find people earning money on the ground of new images introducing in the world marts in every walk of life, is called inventions in modern term.

What are Old and New Models?

Think for a while, what is new and old model of any product? Nothing but the difference of images, images speak and images talk to human soul but we do not pay attention to them. Look in the field of laptops and computers and sciences all are due to images’ applications in practical field because imitation cannot survive among human beings want new things means new images is shape of products, or words.

Practical Shapes of Images

Look around the world, you will find inventions on earth what these are, nothing but the practical shapes of creators’ images on the ground of wealth or wealthy persons’ support in all walks of life. Always creators create things and imitators buy them is a universal law.

Always think in lone my readers, and analyzes self and floating images on your mind screen and try to read them the message of images written in codes, if you follow the images you will be rich soon without efforts sitting on the armchair at home. Ruminate, for a while scientists do nothing but they apply their images and got fame, wealth and respect.

There are millions of topics spreading around you pick any topic and gave a new shape to t on the ground of images you will get fame anon among men and nations all over the world. Always think and create avoid cheat in all fields of life you will get success and fame plus wealth will be at your feet.

Think Face Book and Twitter are earning millions of dollars per minute as you know well than me but you do not pay attention to it what from you nature demands.

Searching for Answers Through Silence

The question still remains regarding the rapper Tupac Shakur. There’s a lot of speculation regarding the incident which occurred in 1996. No matter how many questions are raised no person wants to come forward regarding the shooting in 1996. There could be a lot of information supplied in the next couple of months but will what’s said draw conclusions? Probably not. Usually persons are too afraid to speak about matters which involve homicides or attempted homicides. Too many fear retaliation and so therefore it’s quite difficult for investigators “to solve” crimes when witnesses refuse to cooperate.

Yes Tupac Shakur had Lots of Enemies

Tupac Shakur has been the industries competition and there are some who aren’t very welcoming when it comes to competing. There’s still speculation that Orlando Anderson was involved in the shooting but are we certain? The persons who were on the scene can reveal the information but refuse. They’ve tried to interview Suge Knight regarding Tupac and Suge did communicate briefly but didn’t reveal any details regarding why Tupac was targeted or information regarding the individuals involved. However there’s some “information” which isn’t public knowledge and due to the sensitivity shall not be exposed.

The Mentioning of Snoop Dogg

Snoop Dogg and Tupac Shakur were good friends questions continue to circulate regarding what Snoop knows about what occurred in 1996. Persons being targeted would want to know who, the what, and the why. Of course we can come to the conclusion that there’s some unwilling to accept that Orlando Anderson was the gunmen. There’s way too many unanswered questions and some of the information doesn’t add up. Snoop Dogg may not feel comfortable discussing what he may know. However “somewhere” there’s some clues and not too many may know how to find such clues.

Tupac Shakur is a very talented artist and poet. There will be a lot of books, movies, and documentaries regarding what occurred in 1996. Is it possible that Tupac Shakur can reveal some of the information in which the public want to know? Possibilities exist. How many are willing to accept whatever is said in the next couple of months? We’re still discussing what occurred perhaps because the case is still considered to be a mystery. How many are really involved? “We may Never really Know What Occurred and It’s Possible That the Wrong Individuals Were Named Regarding the Incident in 1996.” (Tanikka Paulk)

Suge Knight was unwilling to cooperate when interviewed while in prison. Suge Knight refused to discuss anything regarding Tupac Shakur however Suge Knight did reveal that Tupac Shakur is “alive.” There is also a video where Suge expressed that Tupac isn’t deceased and of course looking back at the incident there were too many clues that there was a possibility that Tupac was alive. What are some thinking about the shocker? Some are still wondering what really occurred. There are lots of stories told but there’s still no concrete evidence as to whom the individuals are. “Who Shot Tupac?” Perhaps Ttupac will be willing to tell or not.

Welcome to Watching, The New York Times’s what-to-watch guide. We comb through releases big and small, famous and esoteric, to email readers twice a week with our timely recommendations. Our most recent suggestions also appear below. To receive our guide straight to your inbox, sign up here.

I know 10-episode seasons are increasingly de rigueur, and lots of European series have even fewer episodes than that, but I still feel a little robbed when season finales come this quickly after season premieres. This is it for “Veep?” We’ve only just begun!

This weekend I’ll be watching several pre-Olympics events — United States gymnastics championships, swimming and diving trials — because I am a total Olympics nut. Televise more, NBC! I’d watch judo. I’d watch preliminary javelin rounds. I’d watch mascot tryouts.

If you have any questions you’d like to see answered here (for either me or Watching film writer Monica Castillo), we’d love to hear them: [email protected].

This Weekend I Have … Half an Hour, and I Have an Open Heart

“Please Like Me,” on Hulu

Watch if you like thoughtful, observational comedy and coming-of-age stories.

The show’s creator Josh Thomas stars as a loose version of himself in this extraordinarily lovable Australian comedy about a college student who has just come out. He’s dealing with doofy roommates, a suicidal mother and his own (sweet) awkwardness. If you like “My Mad Fat Diary,” or if you wish quirky indie movies had more developed stories, try “Please Like Me.” There’s even a cute dog. Hulu currently has 16 half-hour episodes but 26 have aired in Australia.

… Two Hours, and I Like to Flutter

“Center Stage: On Pointe,” Saturday, 8 p.m., Lifetime.

Watch if you like dance movies or Peter Gallagher when he’s angry.

Continue reading the main story

When “Center Stage” came out in 2000, who among us would have guessed it would spawn two made-for-TV follow-ups. This one, arriving eight years after “Center Stage: Turn It Up” aired on Oxygen, follows in its predecessors’ achingly-arched footsteps: It’s heavy on dance and light on convincing dialogue. If you are expecting highbrow greatness, let’s step aside and have a little talk about looking for love in all the wrong places. But if you are in search of several dance-training montages, shot after shot of muscular legs and the kinds of dirty looks you typically only encounter on a C-grade Mexican telenovela, this is your jam.

10 Hours, and I Miss When ‘Homeland’ Was Good

The Bureau,” available on iTunes, where the first episode is free.

Watch if you like foreign thrillers and slow burns.

This French series centers on a spy (Mathieu Kassovitz, “Amélie”) who returns home to Paris after six years undercover in Syria. Six years that included a serious love affair with someone he’s not quite ready to say goodbye to. There’s also another agent who has disappeared under strange circumstances, a daughter who’s not sure what to make of her long-gone father and agency co-workers who may or may not be supporting his best interests.

Sharukh Khan Romantic Movie Jab Harry Mate Sejal trailer is release : What a romantic trailer

SuperStar Sharukh Khan the king of bollywood and Anushka sharma trailer Jab Harry Met Sejal trailer was unveiled on Friday.Well the trailer is so good and movie is so romantic and both are looking so cool in movie.

With Jab Harry Met Sejal, Shah Rukh seems to navigate a familiar territory but not without taking risks. , his flamboyance is replaced with a ‘coolness’, and the infectious charm is replaced with ‘sexiness’. Unlike his other films, Shah Rukh’s humor has also got a dark undertone, making us want to discover his character. If you haven’t noticed the vacuum of romance in Hindi films lately, probably you were too busy. That’s why Jab Harry Met Sejal is a relief amid a plethora of loud, tacky Bollywood romantic films.

Like any other Imtiaz Ali film, Jab Harry Met Sejal caters to millennials. The film seems to be as clueless about romance and love as you and me. When did we become so practical? Shah Rukh Khan and Anushka Sharma seem to be playing two selfish and practical people. Anushka is only interested in finding her engagement ring, while Shah Rukh just wants to avoid the whole trouble. Both the characters also reflect a certain cynicism that probably shouldn’t shock you. There is a dialogue where Shah Rukh Khan says, “Sejal, don’t look back” harking back to Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge. But Anushka’s smart, humorous reply confirms why this is not a regular romance.

Jab Harry Met Sejal is eventually going to be a love story. But it’s treatment and style raises our curiosity. The film’s whole texture feels new and peppy. There is an undertone of modernity in film’s.

It features Shah Rukh Khan as tour guide Harinder Singh Nehra who is slowly falling for a Gujarati tourist Sejal (Anushka Sharma). The twist in the tale is that Sejal is already engaged to somebody and seems like a traditional homely girl.

Anushka is seen looking for a ring even as SRK tries to convince her against it. It is quite possible that the movie revolves around Anushka’s search for the ring.

They begin to know each other through friendly banters and beautiful locales till the day of her return arrives.

The History of Rap &R&B.

In 1979 the sugar hill gang released there breaking hit rapers delight. Since then Rap has exploded on the scene as the number one music that teenagers young adults and even a crowed of older adults wave there hands in the air to. I remember when i was a kid i use to hear bits and pieces of rap songs by the FatBoys, Run DMC, LL COOL J, SLICK RICK and DOUG E Fresh, because we weren’t aloud to listen to it. At that time the year is 1981,1982, rap  took off that s all u heard in the black neighborhoods, on the kids boom boxes and crowds of people standing around people spinning on there backs and top of there heads. It was called breaking dancing, the smooth melody  of rap music could be heard playing when you seen large groups of people around card board boxes. It was a new area it took a lot of poor kids out the ghettos and move to better neighborhoods, turn a young black man or young woman in to a milliner over night . But back then the rap were way different then they are today, way different u hear me. It was more about the struggle of being a black person in America, and trying survive on the mean streets of New York city, Philly, LA, Detroit, Chi-Town, and every were else were blacks were living struggling. But the flavor of Rap Started in NewYork. And they had some of the winners of hiphop. Dig DaDDY Kane, Eric             B and Rukim. Raps meant something u got a message back then and who would have known even back then the powers that B had there hands all in it .I mean people wanting to get into the rap business that didn’t even know anything about the music, or the people. Around 1988 a new type of rap came out By a Group from cooption named NWA. There raps got the crowds hype i mean in fight mode. They had one song called fuck the police, that they got arrested for doing it live at a concert in Detroit. And it even got them some attention from the FBI. That era or gangster rap changed the game from that point on . It got crazy the raps got out of pocket, rapping about guns ,drugs,violnce, and calling woman bitches, and using a most 0ffensive word you can call the black man and the black woman NIGGER. I mean nigger this higher that. The cloths changed. Rap  represented everything wrong, i mean there was some rapers that tried to be positive. But there voice was not heard over what the people wanted. Its 2017 and the rap game to this day is off the hook, the raps are sloppy, and meaning less they glorify drugs sex with meltable people. Its like rap is the Drug dealers songs for here on out. The devil has his hands all in the music and the songs are so demonic, u can hear it in R&B also. And you should see what its doing to the children its making them crazy. They believe these people and want to be just like them. See the rapers tell the young man they ant nothing with out gold chains nice cars expensive clothes and some. so you have these young men out know out in the streets doing anything for the money . And on the other side the woman in R&B are telling the girls that the men or these lil boys aren’t anything with out money and gold and money.  God help the world now dark days are coming rap always have something  to do with the devil

Song of the Day – Day 19 – Hey Jude

Welcome to my 19th post in my song of the day series. Today’s song in Hey Jude by The Beatles. Now I am going to start this post of controversially by stating that I am in fact not a fan of the Beatles, I am aware that may offend a lot of people but it is the truth and I am a fan of telling the truth. I do however like some of their songs and Hey Jude is one of them. My father on the other hand was a huge Beatles fan. The song was actually written about Julian John Lennon’s son to help him get through his parents’ divorce but was developed into Hey Jude instead of Hey Jules.  It was released in 1968 and at the time was the longest ever single to chart at 7 minutes 11 seconds long.

Hey Jude was a worldwide success upon its release and hit the top spot in the charts of 18 countries as well as hitting top 5 spots in a further 4 countries. It is number 10 in the all-time US chart. It is certified 4x Platinum in the US, Unfortunalty I could not find the certification levels for other countries but as the single sold over 8 million copies worldwide it is fair to say that it gained a few gold disks at least.

 

Here are the Lyrics:

“Hey Jude”
Hey, Jude, don’t make it bad
Take a sad song and make it better
Remember to let her into your heart
Then you can start to make it better

Hey, Jude, don’t be afraid
You were made to go out and get her
The minute you let her under your skin
Then you begin to make it better

And anytime you feel the pain,
Hey, Jude, refrain
Don’t carry the world upon your shoulders
For well you know that it’s a fool
Who plays it cool
By making his world a little colder

Nah, nah nah, nah nah, nah nah, nah nah

Hey, Jude, don’t let me down
You have found her, now go and get her
Remember to let her into your heart
Then you can start to make it better

So let it out and let it in,
Hey, Jude, begin
You’re waiting for someone to perform with
And don’t you know that it’s just you,
Hey, Jude, you’ll do
The movement you need is on your shoulder

Nah, nah nah, nah nah, nah nah, nah nah yeah

Hey, Jude, don’t make it bad
Take a sad song and make it better
Remember to let her under your skin
Then you’ll begin to make it better, better, better, better, better… oh!

Nah, nah nah, nah nah, nah, nah, nah nah,
Hey, Jude
Nah, nah nah, nah nah, nah, nah, nah nah,
Hey, Jude
Nah, nah nah, nah nah, nah, nah, nah nah,
Hey, Jude (Jude)
Nah, nah nah, nah nah, nah, nah, nah nah,
Hey, Jude (yeah, yeah, yeah)
Nah, nah nah, nah nah, nah, nah, nah nah,
Hey, Jude
Nah, nah nah, nah nah, nah, nah, nah nah,
Hey, Jude (don’t make it bad, Jude)
Nah, nah nah, nah nah, nah, nah, nah nah,
Hey, Jude (take a sad song and make it better)
Nah, nah nah, nah nah, nah, nah, nah nah,
Hey, Jude (oh, Jude)
Nah, nah nah, nah nah, nah, nah, nah nah,
Hey, Jude (Jude, hey, Jude, whoa)
Nah, nah nah, nah nah, nah, nah, nah nah,
Hey, Jude
Nah, nah nah, nah nah, nah, nah, nah nah,
Hey, Jude (ooh)
Nah, nah nah, nah nah, nah, nah, nah nah,
Hey, Jude
Nah, nah nah, nah nah, nah, nah, nah nah,
Hey, Jude
Nah, nah nah, nah nah, nah, nah, nah nah,
Hey, Jude
Nah, nah nah, nah nah, nah, nah, nah nah,
Hey, Jude
Nah, nah nah, nah nah, nah, nah, nah nah,
Hey, Jude

Quite repetative lyrics at the end but that doesn’t take away from the quality of the song.

Song of the Day – Day 18 – Losing My Religion – R.E.M

The 18th song in my song of the day series which has taken about 3 months to write instead of 18 days is R.E.M Losing my Religion. This song was released in 1991 which is much earlier that I thought as in my head I remember it coming out but I was only 4 so maybe I don’t. The song was not expected to chart well but was played heavily on MTV due to its award-winning video. This bolstered its popularity and it ended up being the bands most successful hit and promoted R.E.M to a more mainstream fanbase. It hit number 4 in the US Billboard charts and 1 in the Rock Charts, 19 in the UK and top 10 in 9 other countries. It was certified Silver in the UK, Gold in the US and Platinum in Italy. The song isn’t actually about religion which may come a surprise to many, the phrase ‘losing my religion’ is a phrase commonly used in the Southern states of America to describe losing your temper. It makes sense really as I guess losing one’s temper is not very Christian and the Southern states of America are strong Christian states. It’s actually a love song about unrequited love and being at the end of your together, with a similar feel to Every Breath you take by The Police. Considering the initial serious feel of the song it is really quiet an upbeat pop song that you can dance along to. Overall it is one of my fave songs and many agree as it is listed as number 169 on Rolling Stones list of the greatest songs of all time.

Here are the Lyrics:

Life is bigger
It’s bigger
And you, you are not me
The lengths that I will go to
The distance in your eyes
Oh no, I’ve said too much
I set it up

That’s me in the corner
That’s me in the spotlight
Losing my religion
Trying to keep up with you
And I don’t know if I can do it
Oh no I’ve said too much
I haven’t said enough

I thought that I heard you laughing
I thought that I heard you sing
I think I thought I saw you try

Every whisper
Of every waking hour
I’m choosing my confessions
Trying to keep an eye on you
Like a hurt lost and blinded fool
Oh no, I’ve said too much
I set it up

Consider this
The hint of the century
Consider this
The slip that brought me
To my knees failed
What if all these fantasies
Come flailing around
Now I’ve said too much

I thought that I heard you laughing
I thought that I heard you sing
I think I thought I saw you try

But that was just a dream
That was just a dream

That’s me in the corner
That’s me in the spotlight
Losing my religion
Trying to keep up with you
And I don’t know if I can do it
Oh no I’ve said too much
I haven’t said enough

I thought that I heard you laughing
I thought that I heard you sing
I think I thought I saw you try

But that was just a dream, try, cry, why, try
That was just a dream, just a dream, just a dream
Dream

Song of the Day 17 – The Needle and the damage done

There have been many a song written about Heroin over the years, Unfortunalty a lot of my favourite artists from the 60s 70s and 80s suffered from Heroin addiction and it was something that just couldn’t be ignored in the music industry. I am going to write an article about all the different songs about Heroin but for the sake of my song of the day series I am going to write about Neil Young’s – The Needle and the damage done.

Neil young stated that he had seen many musicians pass away from Heroin overdoses before they ever had the chance to become famous, and then it started happening to well-known musicians so he decided to write a song about it.

It is a short but powerful song at only 2minutes and 3 seconds long.  The song wasn’t released as a single it was featured on one of Neil Young’s Harvest album in 1972. The album didn’t do well critically at the time of release but has gained acclaim over time and is now thought to be one of Neil Young’s best works. It was voted 64th best album of all time by readers of Q magazine. Rolling Stone magazine who initially slated the album voted it 78th best album of all time in 2003.

Here are the lyrics:

I caught you knockin’
At my cellar door
I love you, baby,
Can I have some more
Ooh, ooh, the damage done.

I hit the city and
I lost my band
I watched the needle
Take another man
Gone, gone, the damage done.

I sing the song
Because I love the man
I know that some
Of you don’t understand
Milk-blood
To keep from running out.

I’ve seen the needle
And the damage done
A little part of it in everyone
But every junkie’s
Like a settin’ sun.

What do you think of these lyrics, I think they really depict the heart ache that heorin causes without being too obvious or crude. What do you think of songs like this? A lot of people find them ofensive due to the subject matter but I think these are the things that music should be used to highlight.
