33 Postcards

33 Postcards Movie Premiere At Randwick Ritz Sydney, by Eva Rinaldi

Tonight saw 33 Postcards enjoy its premiere at the Randwick Ritz, in Sydney’s eastern suburbs.

The night was not only a movie premiere but also an event somewhat designed to raise awareness and funds for educational and arts programs, tied into the film.

33 Postcards enjoyed strong media support by popular radio station 2UE and benefiting Sydney Children’s Choir and their Bursary Program, giving disadvantaged kids musical and educational opportunities that would have otherwise likely been out of their grasp.

The acclaimed cast and crew of 33 Postcards enjoyed drinks and bites with their fan base, insiders, and entertainment media, and also lapped up performances from the Sydney Children’s Choir and Chinese Lion Dancers.

Then it was time for the Australian theatrical premiere of the flick.

The film was shot in both China and Sydney, Australia in 2010. It’s the story of Chinese orphan Mei Mei (Zhu Lin) who for a decade of dreams about embracing her Australian sponsor Dean Randall (Guy Pearce). It’s not until she reaches 16 years of age, when her orphanage travels down under to Australia to attend a Choir Festival, Mei Mei takes the opportunity to look him up. What she finds however is a far cry from the idyllic life he depicted in his postcards. Initially mismatched, together they begin a journey in search of belonging, family, redemption, love and acceptance. It’s trial, tribulation, and living to fight and survive another day.

Dean is actually a convict in prison for manslaughter, so you can imagine the issues that brings on.

33 postcards won the Community Relations Commission Award at Sydney Film Festival and Victor Dominello MP NSW Minister aptly stated "33 Postcards, inspired by real life stories, explores how two individuals come together despite two different cultures, ages and unexpected circumstances." This evocative film portrays sensitively how people of vastly different cultural backgrounds can interact effectively in our society."

This is an unique and touching story that is rarely told about the relationship that some Aussies have with Chinese Orphans.

It’s not quite for everyone, but if you like a story of survival, beating the odds and the world coming together as one sort of thing, this is likely for you.

Well done to everyone involved in making the event a success.

Stars:

Guy Pearce, Zhu Lin, Claudia Karvan, and Lincoln Lewis

Produced by: Australia-China co-production

365 Days Project, Day 13

Image by Ovais_92
The lady driving her Cadillac sighs; her husband wanted a divorce, because she had been unfaithful to him. She knew he’d probably have some paperwork drawn up by the lawyer by the time she got home, and it would mean losing the car, the house, the cabin near the river, and all the social events she usually went to. She’s trying to think of a way out, but she’s trapped, because she did something wrong-not once, but twice-and there was no going back now. If she stopped to think about it, though, she probably would have done it again, given the chance. Maybe she could move in with him.. If she told him she was pregnant..
The senior citizen in the red Chevrolet smiles when he remembers it’s almost his eightieth birthday. His sons were lawyers and bankers, so they took care of him and his wife. They had raised them right, and it made him feel like there was nothing better they could have done in their lifetime. He was determined to enjoy his days until they ended, so he was taking his wife on a cruise to France.
The girl in the green Toyota Corolla texts her friend quickly. She’s on her way home after school ended at 4pm; she’s looking forward to changing into her pajamas and going back to sleep. She’s usually on her iPhone all day, either texting, playing a game, or on Facebook. Her phone vibrates again, and she decides to ignore it when she sees who the text was from. A friend of hers liked her, and knew that she wasn’t interested in a relationship, but he had told her he would wait for her. She wanted to let him down easy, but she rarely ever thought of him, so she hadn’t asked her girlfriends what they thought she should do.
The boy in the silver Toyota Corolla sings along with the music, strumming an imaginary guitar with one hand.

‘Cause if one day you wake up and find that you’re missing me,
And your heart starts to wonder where on this earth I could be,
Thinking maybe you’ll come back here to the place that we’d meet,
And you’ll see me waiting for you on the corner of the street’

It was his day off, so he had gone to buy a new string for his guitar, and he was a few minutes away from home. He had work the next day, but it wasn’t work for him, because he worked in the best place he could-a radio station-so it was doing what he loved, all day long.
Everyone is waiting for the green arrow. They’re all looking at the same image. But their minds are focused on something else altogether. A different perspective from each angle.

Fogos em Montreal / Fireworks at Montreal

Image by Marcio Cabral de Moura
Festival Internacional de Fogos de Montreal

L’International des Feux Loto-Québec, also known as the Montreal Fireworks Festival, is a major international fireworks competition. (It was formerly known as Le Mondial SAQ, and l’International Benson & Hedges.) It has been held yearly in La Ronde over the Dolphins lake, since 1985, and is named after its main sponsor, Loto-Québec. The display is hailed as the best and largest fireworks festival in the world. It hosts an estimated 3 million each year, with approximately 6,000 fireworks set off during each show.

Each summer, eight or nine pyrotechnical companies from different countries present a 30-minute long pyromusical show, competing for the Gold, Silver and Bronze Jupiters or trophies.

For the 20th anniversary in 2004, eight of the previous top competitors (all of whom had won the Gold Jupiter) were invited to fight for the unique Platinum Jupiter in June and July 2004, which was won in the end by the German company WECO.

The competition takes the form of a series of biweekly fireworks shows usually beginning in late June and ending in late July. The fireworks are synchronized to music which is also broadcast over a provincial radio station (RockDétente in 2005, Rythme FM 2006-onwards). Spectators can purchase tickets to have reserved seats in La Ronde: they can buy them on site, on-line or through the Admission group to obtain an exceptional view of the lower altitude display and the whole perspective. However, tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands of people watch the fireworks for free from nearby locations.

Droid Screen Protector – Best To Use With Your Droid Docking Station

After investing in a Droid docking station, I discovered that the protective case I had for my Droid 2 made it pretty much impossible to dock my phone. If you are into the latest gadgets for your new phone, you want to get something that will give you lasting protection. What I discovered was a product that not only does that, but also allows me to use my docking station effortlessly!

Most of the screen protectors that are available are bulky and can cost a pretty penny as well. I liked that my phone was well protected from drops and knocks, and probably will continue to use it in the right situation. However, I had bought a Droid docking station and now was faced with a problem. The case I used was too wide to fit the docking station. This lead me to search out something that would side step this big problem. This was important because I use the station not only as my bedside alarm clock and recharger, but also bought a second one for work for my desk. Since I am on the go, it was nice to know that I could dock my phone, where it could instantly recharge, and then make use of it in a variety of ways.

After some searching for a Droid screen protector, I uncovered an inexpensive product that would not only protect my phone, but actually is thin enough that still allows me to use my Droid docking station. I can be pretty clumsy with my phone, and I wanted something that would be up for the ride, so to speak. The Realook Droid screen protectors seemed to be up for the challenge.

The crystal clear film that comprises the Realook screen protector was a real selling point for me. I read about other thin screen protectors that caused blurring or even nasty reflections making it hard to read. Once applied, the screen remained crystal clear and gave me an instant sense of ease, knowing my phone was protected. Now, my first attempt to get the screen protector in place was less than perfect, but because they are reusable, I was able to quickly re-align the film. I really liked the fact that they come with a anti-fingerprint coating too.

Depending on the phone you have, Droid, Droid X or Droid II, there is a difference in what is available, so make sure you get the one that is suited for your phone. I recommend that if you are considering a Droid docking station, that you look into getting a Realook screen protector for added durability.

Cell phones are expensive investments, and providing protection should be a no-brainer. For a few dollars, you too can get a Droid screen protector that will provide superior scratch protection for your Droid phone.

I have details on the Realook screen protectors as well as some others for you to consider through my website, http://droiddockingstation.com.

A Droid Docking Station Turns Your Phone Into A Multimedia Experience


by fumi

You would have to be living in a cave not to be flooded with advertisements for the latest and greatest cell phones. Each cellular company is out there to promote their most current “toy”, attempting to grab your attention. Do not get me wrong, I like the toys, and recently discovered a great addition to my Motorola Droid 2. Just when I thought my phone had all the bells and whistles to keep me amused, I am introduced to a Droid docking station.

As the name implies, a docking station is a device that allows you to “dock” your phone. Docking stations have been around for a long time, and you might be more familiar with the ones that accompany a variety of laptop computers out there. Well, with a station for my Droid, it allows me some additional features and simplifications not readily available with just the phone.

One of the greatest features of my multimedia station is the fact that I can essentially dock and charge. There is no need to connect and disconnect the charging cord. I simply put my phone in the station and it begins the charging process immediately. I frequently have forgotten to plug in my phone charger adapter, and have found myself with a dead phone the next morning. Now that I have this docking device, I never even worry about that anymore.

I have used my Droid phone, as well as my previous phones, as my alarm clock. As long as I had remembered to recharge it, I knew that I would be provided with my “wake-up call” every morning. Where I live there has been frequent power outages and a traditional alarm clock has not been reliable. With my Droid docking station, I can seat my phone so that it doubles as an alarm clock, right there in an upright position.

Another great feature is the ability to play my music and videos seated in the docking station. I actually have a second station at my work so that I can listen to the latest tunes on my Droid. I have to say that this is a feature I absolutely love. On my desk I can see the time and weather, watch videos and listen to music, all the while my phone is continually charged and ready to go at a moment’s notice.

One hangup I did have with the Droid docking station was regarding the cover I have on my phone. With the protective case I use, I was unable to fit my phone in the docking station. This was an easy fix however, as I found a great alternative protector for my phone that does allow my phone to fit. Problem solved. Actually, the new protective cover I have makes my phone more compact and lighter too, so that is an added bonus.

If you are a lover of technology and are looking for the latest and greatest for your phone, then you have to check out a Droid docking station. Each model has its own proprietary docking station, so keep that in mind.

For additional details on the Droid docking stations, as well as other accessories like suitable protective covers for your phone, take a second and visit my website, http://droiddockingstation.com.
