DEVELOPMENTAL ENTERTAINMENT

Jan the Maven has some very interesting insights from writer Regina Doman on approppriate themes in children's entertainment. You have to skip down to the posts for Tuesday, August 3rd, but it is well worth the scroll.

I particularly liked this from Jan reflecting on Regina's thoughts...

I find this whole concept of metaphysical arena fascinating. It rings very true. And the thing that really struck me: The little kids, the 3- to 6-year-olds, really have it right. We should fear being lost (metaphysically speaking) much more than we fear death. After all, "to the well-organized mind, death is just the next big adventure." We don't, of course. As adults, we are much more likely to fear and try to avoid death than to be concerned in a major way about being "lost"... both for ourselves and for our friends. But I think we've got it backwards, and the little kids have it right.

I guess I find this so interesting because we are always talking at Act One about creating "responsible entertainment." Creating projects that are intentionally suited to the developmental needs of certain demographics of viewers seems to me to constitute the beginning of an ethical program for screenwriters.

200 or so Duluthians gathered at the historic Sacred Heart Music

Center after mowing lawns or walking dogs while enjoying the balmy,

sunny 55 degree day to see Keri Noble return to deliver an

intimate, polished evening of music.
The concert goers settled in to hear Keri Noble and her guitarist

/producer Jeff Arundel against a candle-lit backdrop amid the

exceptional acoustics of the resurrected church. Keri sang several

songs from her "Fearless"CD including Talk to Me and personal

favorite Piece fo My Heart, along with many songs from her upcoming

album. Her voice and performance showed more polish and maturity

after several months off live performances. It was a great night of

music with Jeff doing songs from his CD "Ghost Party". They wowwed

the audience with the final song, stepping forward on the stage and

singing without any amplification.

should drop you a few lines and thank you for the good job that you are

doing, and at the same time spread the good news about this site that

demystifies a lot of concepts like

Radar detectors do just what their name implies-they detect the radar beams that are emitted from a police officer or state trooper's radar guns. These detectors will sound a noise to tell you of the appearance of the beams so that you will be aware of their presence Find out more about my new cheap discount radar detectors

Wow! Just came back from an exhilerating time at Magic Mountain, which is a true rush park for anyone that wants to get their rollercoaster ride ON! Yeah, baby, what a rush! And then I get back and tried to find some more info on that one topic that is been troubling me, free pharamones to attract women, and bammo. I found every site I wanted to on that topic right at my fingertips. That one hyperlink took me right there and led me to the promise land just like I was hoping. But it did take a while.
