Studio Ghibli’s films are works of art.

Unfortunately, sometimes the endings to their films can be a weak-link. Perhaps the epitomy of this is the rushed scarecrow-changing-to-a-prince scene at the end of Howl’s Moving Castle.

Although the last-minute marriage proposal at the end of the (otherwise fantastic) Whisper of The Heart probably comes a close second.

Kingman - Arizona’s Capital of Culture

Have you ever dreamed of Kingman? The beautiful Locomotive Park, the award-winning pragmatism of the Route 66 Museum. Perhaps you just want to wallow in the history of the Mohave Museum of History and Arts?

Well, as Sacha Baron Cohen’s recent “Who Is America” show attests, this bastion of culture offers something for everyone. Whatever race or creed you are, you will be sure to find a good time in Kingman.

Verification for Steemit

There are number of different blogging websites available, sometimes they can be use synergistically and other times they may be at odds with each other.

As well as using the crisp blogging platform which is Medium and the social media/miniblogging community which is Tumblr, I have recently joined the Steemit.com community. This is a new form of decentralised online community and media generation/sharing which has very interesting principles, predominantly, community-orientated anarcho-capitalist ones.  It does have a lot of potential I feel, although it is not intrinsically meritocratic right at the start. It would be fascinating to observe whether a Pulitzer winner can anonymously join Steemit and write dozens of insightful multi-faceted articles and then get ignored completely if they do not know the many intricacies of how the place functions. 

Nevertheless, I do want to persist with Steemit as the community spirit engendered within it does seem an attractive proposition for new media.
