Movie – “Lord of War”

I know I’m behind the times, but I read more than I watch movies or TV. A little while ago my daughter and I watched “Lord of War” (2005), which I enjoyed, starring Nicolas Cage as “Yuri Orlov”, who was born in the Ukraine and immigrated to the U.S. with his family. I favor and admire Nicolas Cage, and to me his gentle cynicism and humor come through in every character he’s played. I couldn’t help but like him in this movie, because he was charming and funny.

A sensible person, of course, should not condone Yuri’s career of choice, which is the “world’s leading arms dealer”. He was very smart and vigilant, but eventually was sold out by his wife, though honestly I’d have done the same, and was caught by Interpol. Yuri’s rationale and motivation for his “day job” made sense as far as, in short, if it wasn’t him selling weapons to countries that really shouldn’t be armed, it would be someone else. In other words, there will always be someone, because there will always be war somewhere in the world and a staggering amount of weapons and ammunition lying around just waiting to be sold. For Yuri, a country that decides not to go to war (or civil war) was not delightful news, especially when he already had a weapons shipment on the way. It could also be devastating to his cash flow. Well, as I’ve mentioned, he did get caught, but due to his social status of having pull and being on a first name basis with many “distinguished” people, including high-ranking officers in the U.S. military, and warlords, Interpol had to let him go.

It was sad that Yuri’s younger brother was murdered, though he was a lost soul and an addict. He had too tender a heart and was not cut out to be Yuri’s “partner”. Just before his life ended, he was honorable in trying to stop an arms deal from going through in hopes it would stop the genocide in Sierra Leone, which of course it did not.

Towards the end of the movie, while Yuri was in custody, his wife and son left him, which was inevitable, and his father told him that both his sons were dead. Yuri was now the world’s leading “orphaned” arms dealer, and the statistic that one in every 12 people of our world’s population owns or has a gun was deeply sobering.

Starcraft 2 Elite Guide – Vikings, Lord of the Harass

Throughout Starcraft 2 there’s one thing that everyone can do and few actually pull it off and that thing is harassment. When you can remain one degree above your challenger by utilizing harassment strategies, you will probably bag a secure victory in the long run. This is particularly valid when trying to play as Terran. With this information I will reveal the fundamentals of efficient Terran harassment.

Vikings tend to be perhaps one of the best Terran units. Plenty of beginners can quickly disregard these as “worthless” simply because they do not target ground units unless of course in assault mode. However as soon as you start to see their particular effectiveness you are going to quickly have a change of heart.

One of the better maps for Viking harassment is Kulas Ravine. A 1v1 map which includes a large amount of higher ground looking over expansion areas. This is often notably efficient versus Zerg given that they have almost no anti-air during the beginning of the game. In the event the Zerg player expands early (And nine times out of ten this is true!)  construct a Starport and produce several Vikings. It is possible to lower them upon the higher ground just looking over the expansion. This provides them an ideal advantage to destroy drones and hurt thier economy. What’s even better is that your challenger will be unable to notice them since they will be up high and out of view. Next as soon as the defender has taken his army up it is possible to fly away with the Vikings and move them at the rear of his mineral line in their main base. This technique really is easy but could result in a mortal blow towards all of your competition.

Strategies similar to this will also be beneficial when trying to play versus a Protoss player too.

The Vikings on the other hand really should not be employed as being a main attack unit because they perform poorly generally in most ground fights. Feel free to use the Vikings to harass and draw attention away as you produce sufficient Marines and Marauders in order to secure victory. This really is a powerful technique for Terran.

Dark Lord of the Sith Costume From Star Wars

Look no further, we’ve got a Dark Lord of the Sith costume right out of Star Wars. You can find a Darth Vader costume and one of the Emperor Palpatine too. Storm Troopers, Clone Troopers aren’t a problem either. Just about any Star Wars character costumes can be located here. Now, is it the Dark Lord you are interested in? I would imagine so. His story is sad, but it’s not excuse for his actions. Darth Vader suffered, as did those who loved him, because he was unable to control his anger. That was the beginning of the end of the man once known as Anakin Skywalker.

Remember when we met Ani, what a wonderful child he was…in fact he was so loveable he seemed too good to be true, and I guess he was. I never understood why the Jedi didn’t go and save his mother, but I guess that would have led to an entirely different plot and Star Wars would not have been the same.

You will find several different styles of Dark Lord Vader costumes in our online costume catalog. One is just like the real thing. It’s the Star Wars Darth Vader Collector’s Edition Adult Costume (Supreme) and it’s chest and mask are made of injection molded plastic. It actually comes with the breather! So you too will sound just like Darth Vader himself. This costume is for serious Star War fans, but don’t worry, there are several others in all price ranges.

You will also find other Star Wars Villain costumes. Baba Fett, Jango Fett, Jabba the Hutt (this one is an inflatable costume), Emperor Palpatine so you and your friends can plan a Dark Sith group costume around the evil maniacs of Star Wars. Of course, you can find the Jedi forces as well. Leia, Padme Amidala, Obi Wan, Luke, Han and many of the others.

Each of these Star Wars costumes comes in baby and infant sizes…they are the cutest little costumes, whether they are evil characters or good.

Check them out…oh, don’t forget the Dark Sith Dog costume either. Yes there is a Darth Vader costume for your pet. Pet costumes are very big these days, and Darth is always a popular costume so it only makes sense.
