Re-Cycle

Ting-Yin kabuslar diyarında

“Hepimiz buradayız.
Çünkü öbür tarafta terk edildik.”

Pang kardeşlerin yönetmen olarak sahip oldukları müthiş yetenekleri, hikâye yazma konusundaki müthiş yeteneksizlikleriyle desteklediklerine neredeyse bütün filmlerinde tanık oluyoruz. ’The Eye‘dan günümüze 7 film çeken ve Amerikan prodüksiyonu ’The Messengers’ ile yerden yere vurulan Pang Brothers'ın ülkemizde sessiz sedasız gösterime giren 2006 yapımı filmi ’Re-Cycle’ ise bu dönemin en saygın ürünü.

Aslında daha önce benzeri çokça işlenmiş bir konuya eğilen film, ortaya koyması gereken öznelliğin katsayısını kendi kendine yükseltiyor. Kurgusal olanla gerçek olan arasındaki sınırda dolaştığı yeni romanını yazmaya başladığında bir şeylerin garip gittiğini fark eden, tuhaf sesler duymaya ve sanrılar görmeye başlayan bir yazarın hikâyesi bu. Böyle bir konuyu ele alırken giriş şekli büyük önem kazanıyor. Zira yönetmenler, beklentisi az olan seyircisini filmin ilk 40 dakikalık bölümünü Uzakdoğu korku motiflerini arka arkaya sıralayarak eğlendiriyor. Uzun saçlı kadın, banyodaki taşan sular, musluktan çıkan saç telleri, telefondan gelen garip sesler 'Dark Water’, 'Ring’ ve 'Grudge’ gibi filmleri yeniden hatırlatırken, bu sahnelere katılan yorum ise gerçekten nefes kesici düzeyde.

Hideo Nakata ve Takashi Shimizu gibi rakiplerinin basitleştirilmiş, hiçbir stilize deneye izin vermeyen anlatımlarına, hareketli kamera kullanımı, müthiş açılar ve kusursuz sahne geçişleriyle bıyık altından bir gülüş gönderen Pang Brothers, başkahramanları Ting-Yin'in gerçekle hayal arasındaki ayrımı kaybetmesinden sonra ise bambaşka bir kulvara geçiyor. Hayalet Dünya'ya girişimizle birlikte görsel bir şova tanıklık etmeye başlıyoruz. Harap evler, sonu olmayan merdivenler, cesetlerle dolu ormanlar, alev rengi gökyüzü, aldırılmış bebeklerin ağladığı tüneller ve birçok sürreal mekân bunlardan birkaçı. Bilgisayar destekli hazırlanan bu dünyanın her ayrıntısına o kadar dikkat edilmiş ki birçok kısmı ağzınız açık izlemeniz olası.

Görsel ortama, tekinsizlik hissinin başarıyla seyirciye aktarılması eklenince film, kahramanıyla birlikte sizi telaşlandıran epik bir 'Alice in Wonderland’ hikayesine dönüşüyor. Tabi ki karşımızdaki bir çocuk fantezisi değil ve bu kaotik, cehennem benzeri yerde her an bir olumsuzlukla karşılaşma riski merakı ayakta tutuyor. Görsel anlamda benzediği 'Silent Hill'in pabucunu dama atacak kadar estetik bir tutku barındıran ’Re-Cycle’, kullandığı bir çok elementle de Miyazaki'nin ’Spirited Away'ine saygı duruşunda bulunuyor. Ting-Yin ve küçük kızın köprüden geçerken, ölüleri rahatsız etmemek için nefeslerini tutmaları buna açık bir örnek.

Biçimle öz arasındaki güzel bir çizgide yolundan sapmadan ilerleyen filmin, Hayalet Dünya'ya yüklediği anlamları peliküle aktarmasında ise bazı problemler var. “Yaşanılan aşklar, yaşamlar, bilgiler, çocukken oynadığımız oyuncaklar gibi Gerçek Dünya'da terk ettiğimiz ve unuttuğumuz şeyler Hayalet Dünya'da ortaya çıkması” şeklinde özetlenebilecek konunun -korku gerilim türü açısından bakıldığında- hakkının verildiğini ise tam olarak söyleyemeyiz. Film boyunca kendi stillerinden ödün vermeden terk edilme ve yalnızlık üzerine düşüncelerini kahramanlarının 'Geçit'i bulma süreciyle birleştiren Pang Brothers, bazı takıntılarından ise halen kurtulamamış görünüyor.

Reenkarnasyon, karma felsefesi gibi olmazsa olmazlarından vazgeçmeyen yönetmenler, 'Eye 2 'de suyunu çıkardıkları kürtaj karşıtı duruşlarını da sergilemeden edemiyorlar. Tabi ki burada bir sanat eserinin sahibini, öznel düşüncelerinden dolayı suçlamayacağız ama sanatının estetik dışındaki hatlarını bu gibi konular üzerinden kurmak pek de olumlu sonuçlar vermeyebiliyor. Hikâye konusundaki bazı aksaklıklarına ve iç bayan final sahnesine rağmen ’Re-Cycle'ı, Pang Brothers'ın en iyi işlerinden biri olarak gösterebiliriz. Müthiş bir görsellik, devamlı ön planda tutulan stil ve yüksek teknolojili korkuya kazandırdığı sessiz ivme, filme şans vermeyi gerektiriyor.

I cannot believe this has happened so fast. Our first two cycles didn’t stand a chance because they were so long, then I went on the pill for a cycle, and now we’re pregnant! My first cycle with vitex, first cycle getting a positive opk, and here we are! It’s happened so easily that it doesn’t feel real. Part of me is waiting for something bad to happen because this has come so quickly and painlessly for us.

I’m so hopeful for this little bean! I’ve booked a doctors appointment for friday morning so hopefully I get blood work and a confirmation by the weekend!

At this stage my due date is April 30 2017, which makes this bub and Melon almost perfectly 6 months apart! Couldn’t have timed it better if we tried :P

AU August Day 16 - Lost Kings 2 by starfireelf15

Here’s part two of the Lost Kings AU, with the other two protagonists.  I don’t have them quite as fleshed out yet but here’s what I have:

-> After Yuma’s death, he ascended to the Astravarian Realm (the combination of Astral and Barian Worlds created at the end of the Zexal series) as something not quite Astral and not quite Barian, but something in between.
-> He has become a guardian of the Numeron Code alongside those of his friends who ascended to that realm along with him, including Ryoga and the Barian Emperors,  Astral of course who was already there, and several others.
-> Kaito chose to re-enter the cycle of rebirth and was reincarnated into his Arc V self.
-> Sayaka may tentatively be the reincarnation of Kotori, and Allen of Anna, but that’s subject to change.

-> Yugi is a mystery even to the other three.  Supposedly, he should have been dead and moved on to the afterlife with the rest of his friends and family, as he stated he had no intention of reincarnating again.  He should have passed on.
-> however, there have been strange sightings across all dimensions of a very mysterious shop that shows up where nothing was before, and if you enter, you find a room full of strange boxes and objects, dusty old games and puzzles that make no sense.
-> if you stay long enough, you might meet someone that would remind you of Yugi Mutou, if you knew who that was.  He only calls himself the Shopkeeper, and he occasionally hands out useful trinkets or helpful advice, before you leave, turn around, and find that the door you just exited is no longer there, or instead leads into an ordinary flower shop or bookstore.

That’s all for that one.  Tomorrow is the Dragonrider AU.

WHY CAN'T I SLEEP BONNIE!? I've been awake since 7 a.m.& I'm not even the slightest bit tired but come 6a.m. I'm gonna be knocked out even though I work at 7... I swear I was away from all electronics and TV for the past hr I'm in the dark here😣 fml

I’m awake too, doll. I don’t get it. I’ve slept 3 hours in the last 36. I think we’ve hit the point of overtired and wired. Now you’re stressed about not being able to sleep and you’re in the vicious cycle. I wish I had a better answer, and maybe we’d both be asleep by now. 😡💤💤

Tank Update Day 22

We’re cycled!!! Zero ammonia and zero nitrites, with plenty of nitrates!

This is the face you make when you’re cycled:

Look at those lovely colors!! I’ll probably continue testing ammonia and nitrites for a few more days just to make sure things stay steady, but I know most folks only test about once a week on cycled tanks. I’m glad the process is over!

I highly, highly suggest Tetra Safe Start and Prime, I really think the TSS helped speed things up because of the bacteria it has. TSS and Prime certainly helped keep my fish alive as things finished cycling! Also, doing little water changes (about 20% - approximately 2-3 gallons) every other day helped, I feel like. It certainly gave me peace of mind!

I would definitely NOT advise API’s Perfect Start system; although there’s a chance the goldfish died from prior causes there’s really no way to know. Poor thing had a major mucous coat so I am claiming responsibility for its death. 

Everything is great in the tank now though! I’m still on the prowl for some shrimp; Petsmart has some ghost/glass shrimp so I might get some of those, as well as a snail perhaps! And heck, maybe I’ll get a few more panda cory lmao.

sydney road laws are an absolute assfuck. What the FUCK. Riding on the roads besides FUCKING HOONS who think they are so entitled with their mercedes and think its ok to tell you off because you're cycling on a road that DOESNT BELONG TO THEM ANYWAY. FML im stuck in this shithole i hope those assholes all die. I ride on the footpath where i can anyway because 1.i am a noob cyclist just starting out 2. i dont want to die 3. id rather trade up a fine than a broken pelvis.

haha welcome to my reality.

I remember in 2007 when me and Freelee hooked up she was living in a mega exy suburb in east sydney by the beach and Im like ‘hey, sydney is a fucking shit hole and Im going back to Radelaide, you should come with me and see what Australia is really like’.

      the dreams had been more frequent and vivid lately. and, what throws her most of all, is that after she starts to remember them past her REM cycle, they’re not what they are. they’re memories. stockgen had never been a model for ethical business practices, but when she’d found out about the mutagen—the test subjects—human and otherwiseshe hadn’t forgotten. then again, she hadn’t made a point to actively revisit some of the things she’d been privy to either.

      she doesn’t need to be asleep for them to flow freely now.


      ❛              GO… ❜ she hisses through her teeth after jiggling the padlock to his small unit open hastily, reaching into her white lab coat for keys and throwing intermittent, pale-faced looks down the hallway. it opens with a long, metal groan and she searches for him through the dark. ❛    what are you waiting for?! R U N! ❜ 


      it’s the first time she’s been this close to him—enough to make out the stitching in his leather and the scars that are risen on his tough hide. they look old. old and earned. intimidating wasn’t the right word, but she’d stick with it for lack of a better one. MASSIVE undersold him—his partner the rhino too—who’s mercifully absent.

      she wonders why he hesitates. why he doesn’t totally eviscerate her the way she knew he could. he’s not exactly tactful. at least not from what she’s seen of him in motion.

      the air that she’d been struggling for and had been knocked out of her lungs when she’d connected with him rounding the corner finally finds it’s way back to her and filters through her nose; smokey in the cold january air. leo had told her to get to higher ground—someplace safe. to call once she had so they could regroup. as far as she knew—right now—her phone was somewhere in the gutter.

      she’s alone. THEY ARE. and she can only stare at him wordlessly the same way he did from the back of that cell all those years ago.

Moments in Nature with These New Energies

By Lisa Brown, 08/23/2016

Yesterday, my first day alone, I had tons of work to get back to after completing the Sacred Ascension Journeys and I had so much to “do”… yet found myself outside all day, in the rain and pulling weeds…

Two days ago we closed many portals, completed another “death” cycle, as we now enter a whole new re-birthing cycle for us all. Always a personal and collective level, weeding is an important part of the process for us all…. for we weed through our thoughts to see programs, we cut the cords as we pull the weeds and we clear the way as new inspiration/ideas are birthed, new realities, new relationships to all are born to blossom and bring forth more NEW Earth awesomeness for us all.

I looked at this area that I had asked others to do, and realized it was another one of those things that we step up and do ourselves, that apparently it was meant for me to do. :)

I observed the metaphors, while seeing what was applicable in any way to my own reality world….

As I pulled the weeds, hidden beneath were beautiful plants and flowers just waiting to spring forth to blossom, shine and bring more beauty and essence forth…. just like us, as we awaken from hiding deep within. Pulling the weeds at the root, cutting them, as they strangled the life out of the living, just like our thoughts and unconscious realities do…. cutting the cords, pulling the belief out at its root/core…. making way for more new everything to be birthed, nurtured and grow……

I’ve spent this year softening my Divine Masculine of standing as POWER, being the provider, the supporter these last few years. No longer needing to fulfill this role for others and to bring all back into balance within my own Divine Feminine softness again. The marrying of aspects since January and culminating with the 8/8 Lion’s Gate, completing the last initiation of balance with the three fold flame within myself….

Experiencing Divine Holy Union within and having an intimate ceremony for myself (unknowing that was what I was doing until then)…. These powerful and subtle experiences activate our Divinity with every breath.

Now to plant a soul garden, love it into existence and grow that which nourishes the physical body and soul. To continue with this Sacred Temple and enhance what already exists…. through even more purity and love that just continues to emerge in every moment…

Minsan hindi ko maintindihan, kung nasaktan ka ng isang tao, bakit mo pa kailangan manakit ng ibang tao? I mean alam mo na kung gaano kasakit tapos ipaparanas mo pa sa iba. Pinapakita mo lang sa kanya/kanila na wala kang pinagkaiba sa taong nanakit sayo. Plus you’re making a mad cycle.

People write all the time about words being blows to the chest, knocking you out flat, only to have you pick yourself up again,
Words that batter you like a wave, lifting you up only to slam you against the shore, pummel you until you scream with frustration, because nothing you can do makes you exit the cycle, you’re just held up, thrown down, over and over, endless replays, powerless to stop it all from whirling around in your head

And God, I have been hurt like that. I have felt lines stab me in the gut, sweep my legs out from under me, send the wind from my chest

But for all those words said, the ones you won’t say hurt more
The casual nature of your dismissal,
The yawning silence of loneliness–how many days since we last spoke? How long since you looked for me across the room?
How long must I endure the cold before I freeze?

I won't get my hopes up until I see an "IT'S OVER" article on People magazine. Every time there are rumors of a break up, these two do or say something that quiets rumors for a little while. I feel like this is a repeat cycle. They're perfect and wonderful right after a stunt. Like the break up rumors after the initial Oz separation- dinner in Santa Monica, then long separation, followed by breakup rumors which were dispelled by the IG follow/RI "trip").

same really. i need receipts and an autopsy report from the county coroner before i believe.

anonymous asked:

Honestly I think from the 18 hope and Pinoe might be the only ones not back for 2019. I guess a lot of that will depend on if (when) Jill gets fired and who comes in and who they call up. But I think most will try to go another cycle. They're gonna stick with the "bounce back" pr message for a little while. No one's gonna say rash stuff like hope. I'm waiting for ak's book.

i really wish we had a 2007 hope solo to throw shit in the fan cause i dont buy all of them being ok with the lineup and tactical decisions but  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

im sure most of them will try to stay but only time will tell

Why you’re not ovulating

When you don’t have the signs of ovulation

It’s possible to experience an anovulatory cycle (a cycle with no ovulation) on occasion as the result of short term illness, chronic stress, medications, traveling – your body can “read” when you probably shouldn’t be getting pregnant, or potentially getting pregnant, and it will delay or prevent ovulation accordingly. It’s pretty cool like that! Although a one-off anovulatory cycle is not ideal as you’ll likely experience the resulting symptoms from low progesterone of PMS, heavier bleeding, and cramps, it does occasionally occur.

However, if you’re experiencing multiple cycles without ovulation signs you need to take a really good look at your diet and lifestyle and consider making some changes to support your body. Your body wants to ovulate, it needs to ovulate, and consistent ovulation every cycle is going to ensure you feel at your best and avoid hormonal symptoms.

Why you’re not ovulating

A lack of ovulation signs can indicate a number of root causes that can be addressed naturally and effectively with the Flo Living protocol:

  • Blood sugar irregularity – your endocrine system relies on your blood sugar staying in stable stasis without any crashes or too many peaks. Your body will read mismanaged blood sugar as an internal stressor and the first thing to go when your body is under perceived pressure is ovulation.

  • Sleep deprivationsleep deprivation over even just a few days blocks the hormone melatonin and increases the production of the stress hormone, cortisol. Of course, a lack of sleep can be linked to stress or anxiety and become something of a loop of ovulation-suppressing issues.

  • Adrenal fatigueoverexerted adrenal glands create cortisol and this can disrupt progesterone (your body starts to use progesterone up as a cortisol substitute when stressed). Low progesterone levels prevents ovulation and makes miscarriage more likely.

  • Thyroid problems – a sluggish thyroid is a root cause of anovulatory cycles.

  • PCOS – the central symptoms of polycystic ovarian syndrome is lack of ovulation, irregular cycles and missing periods.

  • Low BMI – Having low enough body fat can not only suppress ovulation, but can also stop your period.  Maintaining a healthy weight, and eating the right quantity of calories and fats is key to a healthy cycle.

If you’re not experiencing the signs of ovulation, I advise you not to wait until you want to get pregnant to figure out how to get your body to ovulate. I would recommend you start to support your body in ovulating regularly and consistently – every single cycle – from TODAY.

You will see and feel immediate benefits if you do this. Ovulation is about so much more than making babies. I want you to FEEL how you shift into your verbal, social, and sexual self during your ovulation phase! Not only that, but consistent ovulation ensures a symptom-free, healthy, happy whole menstrual cycle and a perfect period.
