news on the march

Welcome to Monday’s News on the March – The week that was in my digital world.

Roundtable video discussion at Collider Videos:

With the launch of Disney+ looming large over Netflix and Hollywood at large, Collider used deepfake technology to bring together five living legends to discuss the streaming wars and the future of cinema.

Enjoy this lively conversation between Robert Downey, Jr. (Avengers: Endgame, Dolittle), George Lucas (Star Wars, Indiana Jones), Tom Cruise (Mission: Impossible, Edge of Tomorrow), Ewan McGregor (Doctor Sleep, Obi-Wan), and Jeff Goldblum (The World According to Jeff Goldblum, Jurassic World 3), moderated by Mark Ellis (Dog Stepfather)..….… (Watch roundtable).

Article by Annika Perry at Annika Perry’s Writing Blog:

In silenced awe, I wandered around the rooms in which they lived, worked, wrote. I gasped at the exhibits, incredible to believe these were their actual writings. The rooms used by the Brontë family are largely unchanged and filled with a collection of furniture, clothes and personal possessions. One display particularly held me in reverential hush … the little books! Absolutely tiny – each the size of a small matchbox! How could they fit so much in these!…..Read Entire Article

Article at The Hofflebrock:

I’ve been setting daily goals for myself. For an entire week now. I didn’t achieve everything I set out to do, but I did about 743.94% (give or take) more than I usually do. I have seven consecutive days of winning under my belt. I even managed to snag a trophy for a surprise 5k I found myself running (walking) on Saturday. It’s crazy how that shit sneaks up on you.

It’s time for longer term goals. It’s time for a weekly goal. A goal of the month. Something to shoot for by the end of the season. Something target to hit by my next birthday.

And as all of this is happening, I’m having regular, prolonged chats with the moon. It’s up there right this minute, opening up to its fullest as I type this. It’s just about full. I can tell you this without looking at a lunar calendar. I’m in tune with that goddess. She’s been encouraging me to be a Sun for the last seven days...… (View Original Post).

Article at Light Traveller Kate:

This stone Buddha, hewn from the surrounding mountain, is the tallest stone Buddha in the world. It took over seventy years or the span of three generations (between the year 713 to 803 BCE) to construct him. He stands 71 metres tall.

Impressive is a feeble word to describe this wonder.

I joined other awestruck tourists making the graduated climb up to the head of the Buddha before descending in single file down the sheer cliff to the feet of the mighty statue. It was hot, rainy and steamy, I needed to be alert and conscious of where I put my feet. Like anywhere else in the world, the tourists and visitors came for a variety of reasons; some were reverential, others came for more mundane reasons. Perhaps mine were a mixture of both...….

Post All Things Thriller:

We’ve trained and employed many DJs. We’ve worked the Bonnaroo music festival, the victory party for Vice President Al Gore, the CMTV Music Awards after parties and Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton’s engagement party to name a few of the high profile gigs.

But mostly we’ve DJ’d weddings. Literally hundreds of weddings.

My husband and I no longer gig. We manage our collective of DJ’s and cater to an increasingly demanding clientele. As such we are music directors, marketing campaigners and event planners.….(Read entire post)

    That thousand year old Buddha….wow.
    That blogger got a lot of nice shots of him. I was amazed at the detail and effort that went into his ear. I can’t imagine what it must be like to see it in person….kinda like seeing the Pyramids, I guess. You’re just overwhelmed with awe…….
