Biblical and Reality in my Life

The importance of proverbs, parenting and today’s sermon all have about the same importance to life. Parenting you want to do what you need to do to help that child to succeed in life, proverbs talks about how we should walk in the fear of god to help gain inner peace and today’s sermon says to put all your worries and troubles on god and he will take care of them. Proverbs is trying to tell and teach us how to gain a relationship with god, to stay on the right path if on the path of righteousness and if on the wrong the path, to encourage you to get on the way of rightness. Proverbs also talks about the different faults that we get ourselves or others into. It also says how it’s easy to do something wrong but it’s hard to crawl out of that hole that you have put yourself in as my dad would say it. When you become a parent you have to except that you have to become mature even if you’re not ready. A real parent is someone who wants to be there when you succeed or fail. They will also encourage you, love you unconditionally, and believe in you. The parent or parents doesn’t have to be your biological parents, they can be your grandparents, aunts, uncles, strangers or even the government. In today’s sermon, the preacher talked about how worries are a silent but deadly sin. The preacher said that we put our self worries before god and let worry take over. He also said that we try to carry our troubles upon ourselves and so we should let god take care of them for us. All of them correlate with my life because when I was living with my mom, my grandparents and my aunt were the ones who took care of me and were my parents. Proverbs and today’s sermon can compare to my life because I’ve always worried about things that I couldn’t change and sometimes I even blame myself for things that have went badly.

Review of Avengers

...that the TV series looks more like a reality, but I think superpower makes a science fiction movie more fantasy and mysterious. So, there is no doubt that when it first showed on screen, it received a warm welcome in a large amount of fans. The poster of the Avengers Yu 2 For me, the movie attract me most is that many of audiences’ familiar heroes would get together in this film and show their own talents and charms. After watching the movie, I would like to say that I like character designs in the movie. For example, although there are numerous figures in this movie, but they all have distinctive personalities. And also, wonderful acting in this movie also made the movie very successful. This movie mainly tells a story about Iron Man, Thor, Black Widow, Captain America, Hulk and Hawkeye and other super heroes in early S.H.I.E.L.D, they get together and form a strong team called "Avengers. In this movie, the action is fast and furious, and relationships are complex. Also, the whole film is full of suspense and innovative. And at the beginning of the movie, heroes were not united and several of them were controlled by Loki, who was Thor’s evil brother and planned to destroy the earth.

Performance Critique

... Storm, Thor, & Wolverine and also many other characters in the Marvel universe .The plot of the play is about Thor shatters the cosmic cube and the pieces scatter across the world and the bad guys get a hold of these pieces and of course the good guys have to stop them. The actors in the performance you could hear them very well in the BJCC even when we sat at the tip top of the arena. The actors had great chemistry on the stage and you can tell they’ve been acting for a very long time. They villains moved like they were big and bad and the heroes moved like well no one can mess with them. The stage which they performed on was the court of the BJCC and the stage was awesome there was a lot of props. Like I said the stage was huge so there was a lot of room for character interaction and it all made sense for the performance. The set was pretty epic with the props the special effect the lighting and everything was well executed. The costumes for the performers was spot on to the characters they portrayed to the finest detail so it made the show even more realistic with the costumes. There was a lot of props used in the performance like big screen TVs to show other heroes in other parts of the world smoke machines lights and special effects and all the props were all very hi grade so it was very effective.

Michel - Jean Bisquiat Art Analyze

...particularly singled out Thor, which drew my attention his similarity to the artist himself. Thor holds a tool that gives him super powers as does a can paint for the artist. Bisquiat, is not only paying patronage to these famous artists but he is also making reference to life in the streets, and his technically, “African American”, heritage. The elements I see in this art are line, color, and shape. There are lines in the shapes of the squares, in the shape of the triptych, and there are ransom lines everywhere. They all have certain meaning. The lines of the crown and the lines in the S are to mean Basquiat’s signature. The lines of the multiple hands are depictions of hands being cut. There are also lines that drip down from the pain itself that could be a sign of disparages. There are many random colors. Yellow gives the art a life form of some sort; it kind of glows from beneath while the expressions on top of speak to one another. The blue and orange conflict with one another, orange is an explosive color while the blue calms it down. Black brings in the frustration and sadness. This art has no shortage of shapes. I see circles, triangles, squares, rectangles, and even leaf like shapes. I believe these shapes were used to point out importance of what was within them. For instance, how he circled Cherokee. That was his way of honoring the Indians for their tragedy. Secondly, how Thor is in a square with a crown. The artist is basically relating himself to Thor;......

The Mighty Thor: Mythical or Comical

...The Mighty Thor: Mythical or Comical The modern day image of a superhero consists of either Superman or Batman riding in a high-speed car and swinging off of buildings hundreds of feet from the ground, desperately trying to save the innocent victim. A Norse God with long blonde hair, a winged metal helmet, and a bright red cape with blue leggings is probably not an ordinary image being pictured in one's head. Superheroes come in all varieties, shapes, and forms, but behind each superhero lies a secret to why they were created. The reasons for creation range from events that previously occurred in history to recent changes in today's society. Comic book superheroes were indeed influenced by history, but the comic book superheroes also continually influence history itself. This reciprocal influence continues to affect the generations of comic book fans for years on end. Comic book creators have been known for using a strategy to create characters which tend to resemble infamous gods to separate the common ideal mortal heroes from the indestructible immortals. By using this strategy, comic book creators are able to give their characters a fierce outer shell with a scholarly uplift (Reynolds 53). With the creation of the Mighty Thor comic book character in 1962, Lee and Thomas used this strategy perfectly (54). Asgardian characters were just ready-made superheroes waiting to be transformed into the comic-book world (57). Being named one of the most unusual creations in......

... The sound of a pleasant tone that calls “Gracie” fills my heart with warmth as I open Mama Thors’s door every afternoon. Mama Thors is my boyfriend’s mother. She has short wavy blond hair and blue eyes, and her oval shape face looks like Reese Witherspoon’s. She has a slim body, which fits in with any kind of outfits her laughter lights up the room and her sweet smile makes me feel so loved and at peace. She is always ready to listen to my complaints about work or personal issues that bother me. Every time I ask, she is always there to give me advice. Beyond the support, she greets me with a gigantic smile across her face whenever I walk into her house and gives me an enormous hug and a soft kiss before I leave each evening. Although she is already beautiful, her kindness makes her more so. Smiles flow over her indulgent face as flowers every time she gives presents to people who are in need, such as charities for veterans and people suffering through disaster. I adore being around her so much that my heart attaches to her as a magnet attaches to the wall. I can even sense the lovely smell of her perfume wherever I go, like she is always with me. She makes my visits the most exciting moments of the week for me.

A Character Analysis on Loki Odison from Thor

... but they are not out of his desire to inflict misery to others. He has motives and in fact, if told from his perspective, he might very well be considered as a tragic hero. Loki was born as the son of Laufey, the king of the Frost Giants, but had been kept hidden because of his diminutive size. A battle broke out between Asgardian gods and the Frost Giants, causing Laufey slain and the giants defeated. It was then Loki was discovered by Odin, the king of Asgrad. Odin took him back and raised him along with his biological son, Thor, in hopes that he would one day bring about a permanent peace between those two eternal enemies. Loki was never told of his origins and was raised to believe he was the blood offspring of Odin and brother of Thor. This is so telling of what it was like for Loki growing up: he’s not like the other Asgardians. Even at his own home, the favoritism was apparent. Odin, who he believed as his own father, blatantly preferred Thor. Things finally are brought into an out of control careening river of emotions when Loki learnt his true nature. It, of course, didn’t go over very well, being raised thinking that Frost Giants are monsters and turning out to be one. He came to realization that he is essentially what people around him hate. He then took a turn for the worse to prove his worth as a son of Asgard. However, much to my disappointment, Loki didn’t see how he can ever come back to be his true self when he was calmly told by Odin that there’s nothing...
