…all activities seem to be on queue till the first rays of the new rising sun are seen. At this moment there’re hardly any distractions from external forces, distractions which serves as pollution of the mind and soul. The only disruption which steals you of your subconscious sleep is self inflected thoughts. And it is in the Midnight of the Silence that we are able to dream, to reach all corners and potential of not only our minds but our existence.

Light Goes On - When all is dark, there’s is a light which shines inside of you. A light which illuminates a hue that is beyond anything imaginable. A glow so bright it’ll guide you through the weathered path. The frequency is seen by some, not by all. The hardest struggle is seeing that which is inside of you followed by believing in yourself.

No matter your age no matter your context no matter the obstacles that life gives you… if you have a passion for something you’ll find a way to do what you love. Do it sooner than later.
"I think that I shall never see A poem lovely as a tree. … A tree that looks at God all day. And lifts her leafy arms to pray; A tree that may in summer wear A nest of robins in her hair; Upon whose bosom snow has lain; Who intimately lives with rain. Poems are made by fools like me But only God can make a tree.”
There seem to be some confusion about not only what BIM entitles, but acctually what the letters stand for.
How would you read out B.I.M.?
bimmeup answered: I read it out as Bim, but understand it as ‘Building Information Modelling’, are there more varients?
Well, through Linkedin I…
Stands for Building Information Modeling but management of the overall process goes along with what your “BIM execution plan” Thus why you typically see the General Contractor managing BIM activities since they’re already managing the overall project.
Real time review/thoughts on Francis Ford Coppola’s Tetro
Opening credits - the rotational use of view, playing with the lights focusing in and out was interesting. For some reason this reminded me of the opening credits of North by North west. You see a simplistic sequence of the credits starting on an open canvas being built layer upon layer of what then turns into the facade of the opening shot. It goes along with the whole theme of the movie where your view is distorted and while it may seem simple and clear at the start turns out to be something more complex and connected with it’s context in the end. I’m assuming we’re given a distorted notional of view for a purpose.
[update after watching the end] In my opinion the light which Tetro is glazing upon in such disdain at the beginning represents the spotlight and torment that comes with his celebrity family (living in the spotlight)
Who’s Ava Gardner? There has to be something said about a few key choices that’s made.
Black and White - With the use of current technology and fads (like iMAX and 3D) it’s refreshing to see a film done in black & white. The B&W setup allows a more emphasis on light, shadows and forms to play and be clearly read across the screen. When Tetro compares his girlfriend to Ava Gardner and Bennie responds with “Who’s Ava Gardner?” This is clearly a statement of the disconnection with our past. With cinema in this case of the disconnection, but as Tetro reveals his unwillingness to disclose his past to those currently around him it’s understandable why Tetro doesn’t scolds Bennie for not knowing who Ava Gardner is.
Memory sequences - have to just say love the fact that the memory sequences are in color. I interpret it in the sense that as we dwell in the past those visions may be more vivid and richer than how we perceive our president.
Music Score by Osvaldo Golijov - The music just plain out works. It’s noninvasive to the story, nor towards the dialogue rather it enhances the narrative.
One can see the contrast of the two stages of the brothers. Tetro has lived in a self loathing life full of pain from his past experiences. The derivative stories in which Bennie has read and ultimately ripped off in order to discover his families story are uniquely precious to Tetro. While he wants to shelter those shattering memories from others for him to bare alone, Bennie is disregardful and reckless broadcasting his brother’s accounts. Regardless of these fundamental differences you’re reminded throughout the film of similarities of the two (both has broken legs, both writers, after meeting Miranda urges his gf to cut her hair short).
Without giving too much away, I’ll just say that it’s a really excellent well executed film all around. The build up towards the end and the amount of suspense and emotions that we’re given for these characters are astounding. One of the best films I’ve seen in the past 5 years.
Everything is relative. Everything is connected. The answers are the questions and the questions are the answers. To compare oneself directly to one another is a completely waste of your potential! You are your neighbor… You are the night… You are the sun… You are the universe and the universe is you.
Mary Hynes speaks with astronomer Carl Sagan about his latest book
When questioned on the view of the universe having a designer/creator
"…you can say ‘look you can go back as far as you want but somehow the stuff of the universe had to come from somewhere and isn’t that what god did?’ But that’s only true if the universe was always here….most of us would be surprised to hear that the universe is going to end one day.
We expect the universe to go on forever into the future. Why do we have the idea it doesn’t go on forever into the past?” - carl sagan
