Ready for some surf and turf?

Did you know that there are waves which have a square shape?

Here is a thread ūüßĶ dedicated to some of the unique & fascinating waves found on earth ūüĆäūüŹĖÔłŹ

Square waves are periodic waves that have a sharp, abrupt transition between the high and low points of the waveform. They are characterized by their flat, straight tops and are often used in electronic and electrical engineering. #squarewaves #Engineering ImageImage
Point / Reef/ Beach break waves: waves that break at a specific point along the coast. They are formed when the wave direction is perpendicular (point break) or parallel (reef & beach break) to the coastline & can create long, peeling rides for surfers Image

Anyone else celebrate #NationalCinemaDay by taking the family to see #jaws3D? Movie going is something I rarely got to do as a kid. I grew up poor so I saw ET and then right before I went to MEPS my mom took me to see Hunt for Red October. It is nice having the resources to treat
my own family to the theater experience. My problems are all first world now. Such is life for most people in America. Oh, we argue about various issues but end of the day very few of us go to bed hungry, or scared of random missile strikes and most of us can be 99.99% certain
that our loved ones will make it home each day. Speaking of #jaws you have to go back to WWII and stories like that relayed by Quint about the sinking of the #USSIndianapolis to find an America where, "will they make it home" is a community wide fear. If only that were true for

Por petici√≥n popular, vamos a hablar de un efecto cinematogr√°fico muy espec√≠fico: el travelling compensado, zolly, efecto v√©rtigo, retrozoom, o m√°s conocido por el t√©rmino en ingl√©s, el #DollyZoom. ¬ŅQu√© es? ¬ŅC√≥mo se consigue? ¬ŅC√≥mo se utiliza? ¬°Abrimos hilo!
#cinematografía #hilo
El "dolly zoom" combina efectivamente estos dos recursos b√°sicos de c√°mara:
- el dolly, la traslación de la cámara hacia adelante o hacia atrás
- el zoom: el cambio de la longitud de la focal de la lente
#cinematografía #rodaje #DollyZoom #cine #MovimientosDeCámara
Es f√°cil entender que el "dolly shot" cambia el plano porque se acerca o aleja del sujeto. Se suele hacer poniendo la c√°mara sobre ruedas o railes, para que el movimiento sea suave.

Not a lot of people know this, but a couple summers ago I had the greatest adventure ever. I went to Amity Island.

I got to meet all kinds of people including the sheriff and mayor.

I kept hearing people scream about a shark with big #Jaws

Here I am getting a killer tan.
While I was there, as I said, I befriended the local sheriff (Brody), a local fisherman (Quint), and some smart scientist guy (Richard Dreyfuss).

They were all very nice. Here's a photo of us out on Quint's boat.

Best guy's night out ever. They told me all kinds of stories!
They were my best friends ever.

So here's a little jaunt into my summer holiday in #Amity.

Hoy toca hablar de PEL√ćCULAS que podr√≠an ser SECUELAS AP√ďCRIFAS de otras, pertenecer al mismo UNIVERSO o considerarse un WHAT IF de otras con las que no deber√≠an tener conexi√≥n.

Y no, no voy a hablar de los Vega de #PulpFiction y #ReservoirDogs.

La leyenda urbana de que todos los relojes en Pulp Fiction están parados a las 4:20 es falsa. Algunos sí, pero no todos ni mucho menos. Hay relojes importantes en la trama que ni de cerca.
