THE CENTERPIECE OF ALL OF GILLIAM'S WORKS, AND A CULT CLASSIC, Brazil IS TERRY GILLIAM'S VERSION OF ORWELL'S DYSTOPIAN "1984", a science fiction satire, black comedy, and fantasy on industrialization, terrorism, the failure of modernity, government control and bureaucracy, love, and even modern filmmaking. This shockingly inventive and densely visual film follows Sam Lowry, a clerk in the records department of the Ministry of Information. When he starts being overwhelmed by the world of paperwork he escapes from his existence by becoming a hero in his own dreams. His life and these dreams begin to merge together, and his dreams become more realized as his life tears apart.
The film will be screened at the 24th International İstanbul Film Festival with its newly restored print for the first time after 2005 Berlin Film Festival.

new trend! _Nickelodeon Family Suites_

Hotels and BRANDED BRANDS are a match made in heaven: hoteliers know hospitality management (not to mention owning the actual venue), with partner brands providing best-of-the-best experiences and product placements. New and updated developments:
Long in the making, Holiday Inn and Nickelodeon are about to open their first Nickelodeon Family Suites in a few months time. Any child's dream (and some parents' ultimate nightmare ;-), this all singing, all dancing family hotel will combine Holiday Inn's hospitality expertise with Nickelodeon's competence in entertainment. Think having breakfast with SpongeBob SquarePants, water slides and lots of noise.
While Bulgari and Ritz-Carlton are still having fun with their first BRANDED BRANDS hotel in Milan, a second, all-villa resort will open in Bali in late 2005. Can't develop an entire hotel with the Hiltons and Starwoods of this world? Why not start by co-creating a room? The two Californian THE BLOCK hotels located at Lake Tahoe and Big Bear, are the first ever snowboarder hotels (can you say NOUVEAU NICHE?). Rooms sport snowboard racks, pegs, boot dryers, and glove drying racks, as well as CD players, Xbox and PS2 game consoles. The real twist? The hotel's signature BRANDED BRANDS rooms, subliminally designed and equipped by the likes of DVS Shoe Company, Napster (shown above), Transworld Snowboarding Magazine, Flow Bindings, Zoo York, Spy Optic, Section Outerwear, Roxy Clothing, Jones Soda Co, Vivid Video and Marc Frank Montoya. Talk about new forms of brand experience!


I think I know what's right but I'am not happy with it. Modern living / Neurotica Series


Textone's first mini album happen for a simple reason. We did not know which track to leave behind and being the anxious people that we are we decided to just release them all. Leo's production resembles a kid who listens to thestreet noises through a cup glued to the wall. Full of textures yet not dreamy but rather jacking and thumping. He drops little surprises around every bend in the sonic road. Leo's play with vocals is the cherry on top of the pie: Voices that serve as another instrument in Leo's crafty hands with the kind of rhythm and position that is traditionally left to percussions. It's a textoneto launch a new style in production, a futuristic free jazz and post space age dance.

tech trend

I think there is no space in the world for a technological indigestion, I will not bet on an hypothetical city/home as a videodrome invaded by screens, displays and sophisticated devices, At home, quite like in the services, chips, more than computers, must be at work. Tech is supposed to enliven, to enable the environment without appearing, without showing off. The outcome in products and services will be brought to the formal and aesthetic identity that has made the design related objects accepted as signs of our time. So?

Crazitivity by Dr. Edward de Bono

Crazitivity is a new word that needed inventing. Crazitivity is that sort of creativity that is solely driven by desire to be different. Creativity is always new and different so the belief is that something new and different is necessarily creative. So anything different, bizarre and off thewall claims to be creative.I have no objection whatever to this belief and this style of creativity. My only concern is that people sho uld equate crazitivity with creativity. This would be a pity and would be a great disservice to serious creativity.
Creativity can be low key, simple, unostentatious and very logically in hindsight. Creativity does not have to announce: "Look at me. Aren't I creative!!" In the advertising world something that is crazy may catch attention and may therefore have a direct value. This is seldom the case elsewhere. Since much of the impetus for deliberate creative effort came from the advertising industry (brainstorming) there is this residue of belief that bizarre is creative.Bizarre does not attract attention in general. So those who want to make a statement or parade their disdain for normal conventions may seek the crazitivity of bizarreness. Sadly, there is a huge convention of unconventionality just as all hippies had to wear hippie uniforms.
There is nothing wrong with the motivation to seek to be different. It is a pity if it just stops at being different for the sake of being different. In lateral thinking there is an important role for provocation. "Po cars have square wheels" is a typical provocation. The point of provocation, however, is that you use movement to move forward from the provocation. You do not just sit on the provocation and say: "Isn't that creative?" So you move forward from the square wheel provocation to design intelligent suspension.
Provocation is a valuable step but not a useful result.The main reason why crazitivity is so often equated with creativity is that crazitivity is so very easy. So those people who want to be noticed and want to flaunt creativity find this the easiest route to take. That is a choice and an option. In my view it is not a very constructive one. I regard highly those creative contributions which deliver more va lue than just being different. So the key question is: "What value does this creativity deliver?" It may be eye-catching but then a shout is ear-catching. Do you really want to live in a world full of shouting?
Dr. Edward de Bono is a leading authority in the field of creative thinking and is the originator of the term "lateral thinking." He has written over 50 books in the field of creativity and thinking including the international bestsellers, Serious Creativity, Six Thinking Hats, and Lateral Thinking. He has been a keynote speaker at two of ACA's annual conventions.
