Birdman

Or: The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance


The man wants to regain control of his life. In the days before the premiere, the famous actor will face his egos and tries to regain his family, career, and finds himself. But will he succeed in that?

Thomson is sixty-four who was once a star on the big screen as a superhero, but today he is known as "a man dressed as a bird who talks a sordid story"…
                                     
And why birds? Once he flew or he will just fly, will he? The bird is the soul of the man. He returns to the theater stages. Birdman is flying on the wings of a well-deserved success over Hollywood. There are no villains. Everyone is struggling with themselves and their egos, with their shadows. This is a social drama, but also a comedy, not only an ordinary family black chronicle. This is a reaction to the triumph of ignorance in the world of film. Birdman is really a bird and there is no barrier for it …

Sci-Fi Books


Science Fiction is a fiction, nonexistent life, something like a fairy tale, but it seems like a truth to a reader. It is like a myth that touches the essence of life. Ratio does not see it as something possible. It happens that we un-bewitched the whole world and we see with common eyes. It is our problem.  

What if? That is the question of Science Fiction. Science Fiction asks and tells us through imagination about life as a future, science and technology, space, time, parallel universes, etc. Is it a utopia's world or really sociological studies of the future? Hugo Gernsback was one of the first who used the term "Science Fiction" and Forrest Ackerman used the term Sci-Fi with "Hi-Fi" trend, and H. G. Wells uses his time machine. 

Science fiction also criticizes the current world and initiates a new direction in human life. Sci-Fi books contemplate about possible future, and the poet Edgar Allan Poe with Jules Verne and Wells are often mentioned as the founders of Science Fiction. Mark Twain explored science in his novel “A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court“, as well as Franz Kafka and modern writers: James Joyce, T. S. Eliot, Virginia Woolf, etc. Orson Welles's radio version of “The War of the Worlds” panicked many people who believed the program was the reality. Science Fiction in 1953 with “The Quatermass Experiment” (1953.) was shown on British TV, the first significant science fiction show as a horror. William S. Burroughs was the writer who brought Sci-Fi in the modern literature. Science fiction films develop its genre additionally with Stanley Kubrick's ”2001: A Space Odyssey”. Contemporary Sci-Fi has been marked as cyberpunk. SF writers invented the robot long before it was possible to build one, before the modern science.

Traditional mythology appears in Science Fiction that has a long prehistory, in the epics of early Greek civilization with Mount Olympus and includes voyages to distant worlds, inhabited by one-eyed giants (the Cyclops Polyphemus), a six-headed monster, a creature that swallows passing ships, a woman who turns people into animals, etc. Sci-Fi we meet in ancient Sumer, ancient Egypt, India and other Civilization.

Freelance Writer


You wonder: Who are these people “freelance writers”? There are people who write to order and they are the best in that. Nowadays mainly texts are written for internet sites, blogs, e-books and others. But, who are you, someone who writes or someone who needs any writing service?

If you are a writer, look at the Internet, follow people in your niche and read their materials, follow magazines, blogs, forums and other. Many writers are successful freelance writers who work from home and out of a home office. Or if you are not a writer and you need a text in 300 words, you are on the right place. 

Writing is a very demanding job and it needs someone who has already read a lot of literature in the required field, it also requires the text with the basic SEO features. Also, contents should be lovable to readers. Everyone is not equally capable for creative writing or for other writing forms, for example, technical writing. 

Freelance writers can write many things, for example I write posts or articles, critiques or essays, short stories ABOUT: any books, any music videos, about films, painting, about poems, poetry or about something else. Freelance writers write for you a SEO-optimized content for better chances to the Internet research, also freelance writers can write and as guests on any blogs but in this sense, he/she needs to be connected with the other blog owner as guest writers. 

Certainly, experienced freelance writers write better than beginners. And, do not forget that there are people with artistic sense or sense for marketing stuff, etc. 

My texts are like these ones on this site, and if you take some of these with a fee they will be removed from this site. Accompanying picture for text, you should send by yourself or you would suggest something to me.  

For me, send your email.
