Comment on At The Bar: Mount Gay Eclipse and Eclipse Silver Rum by Bill

Sun, 25 Jun 2017 01:59:15 +0000

I visited their distillery and bought a bottle of their "Pure Silver" white rum. Im trying to replace it and I keep getting directed to sites listing Silver or Eclipse Silver. My bottle of "Pure Silver" looks identical to the bottle of "Silver". its just missing the word "Pure" what is the difference?

Will try the manchego pancakes, they sound delicious! Got to this site after looking at your hot pepper recipe, which I will make tonite.

Ooooohh! Just made a different paella recipe last nite & agree that hot sauce should be added at the table. I prefer Louisiana Red Dot to tabasco~~

sorry for hogging the taherd, but anyway:the academy has never awarded a science fiction movie with best picture, so it would not be any kind of upset here to give the award to inglorious basterds or up in the air.cinematography and director should be a slam dunk for cameron though. if this were any other field, science or music or engineering or art, there would not even be a discussion here. the development of, and correct usage of, the 3D camera would be the cinematography award. not only did he invent it from scratch, but cameron has shown how to properly frame and focus the fusion 3D camera so the result is immersive and background information, rather than making it IN YOUR FACE.many major directors now want to copy this technique. scorcese, spielberg, et cetera. this is THE measure for how important something was. in effect, every director who wants to use cameron's 3D camera is giving him a citation, exactly the same as in science or medicine or music. this is the process used in selecting nobel prizes and grammy awards. nobody is going to copy bigelow's camera work, because all she did was imitate what michael mann and paul greengrass have already been doing with hand held cameras. she didn't even do it as well as them.the director award would be for cameron's development of the virtual cam, which enabled him to direct the actors as they will appear in the rendered version of the movie. he is the first person to solve this problem for motion capture, a problem which has resisted zemeckis' best efforts for over 10 years. the virtual cam takes the guess work of the acting, so the the director sees exactly what the actors are doing instead of telling them what to do and then hoping it looks right after the computer guys get done animating it. he took the whole process away from the computer guys and put it back into the director's hands.note again the directors who are now planning to copy cameron's work on avatar: spielberg, scorcese, zemeckis, and plenty of others like jackson, soderbergh, and the widely hated michael bay. come on, it's obvious who the best director was here. although cameron certainly does not need a pat on the back and a golden statue, the academy should try to retain some credibility and award the correct person.
