Kedves Felhasználóink!

Üdv Nektek az Angoljegyzet Monthly hatodik számának megjelenése alkalmából!

Azt csiripelik a madarak, hogy lemondott Gyurcsány Ferenc. Jó ez nekünk, vagy rossz? Ki tudja... Kedves Felhasználó, te a pártállásodtól függően biztos, most vagy nagyon örülsz, vagy nagyon nem.:)
Na de fontos ez? Nem fontos. Mi a fontos? Az a fontos, hogy angolozzunk ebben a hónapban is, mert ugye nagyon EU tagok vagyunk, csak hát az a fránya angol, azt ne kéne tanulni... mondhatnánk, ha lusták lennénk, de nem vagyunk, és áprilisban is annyi filmet nézünk angolul, amennyit csak lehet.

Kedvenc sorozat? Mi itt a szerkesztőségben nagy sorozatfüggők vagyunk, nézünk vagy 30 félét (persze nem letöltjük, hanem megvesszük, ahogy illik:), és azt kell, hogy mondjam: vannak köztük nagyon jók. Ha vidám tini vagy, akkor is találsz magadnak olyat, ami tetszhet, és ha nem vidám tini vagy, akkor is. Persze, ha nem tini vagy, akkor meg méginkább, bár ha savanyúuborka vagy, az esélyek némileg rosszabbak.:) Viccen kívül: nagyon sokat lehet tanulni ezekből a kis filmekből, hiszen azt a nyelvet beszélik benne, amit az angol ma, a 21-ik században használ. Nem mintha gond lenne a 200 évvel ezelőtti angollal, sőt. Klasszikusok ugye... olvasni is kell... persze az meg nem könnyű, de nagyon hasznos és szórakoztató.

Filmezzünk és olvassunk hát együtt és a haza fényre derül! Plusz, szolgálati közlemény: h
írlevélre fel!:)

Led Zeppelin - Stairway To Heaven


There's a lady who's sure all that glitters is gold
Van egy hölgy, aki biztos benne, hogy minden arany, ami fénylik
And she's buying a stairway to heaven
És lépcsőt vesz a mennyországba
And when she gets there she knows
És amikor odaér, tudja
If the stores are all closed
Ha a boltok mind zárva vannak

With a word she can get what she came for
Egy szóval megszerezheti, amiért jött
Ooh, ooh, and she's buying a stairway to heaven
Ó, ó, é
s lépcsőt vesz a mennyországba

There's a sign on the wall but she wants to be sure
Van egy jel a falon, de biztos akar lenni
'Cause you know sometimes words have two meanings
Mert tudod néha a szavaknak két jelentése van
In a tree by the brook, there's a songbird who sings
A pataknál egy fán van egy énekesmadár, aki azt énekli
Sometimes all of our thoughts are misgiven
Hogy néha minden gondolatunkat direkt félreértik

Ooh, it makes me wonder
Ó, ez elgondolkoztat
Ooh, it makes me wonder
Ó, ez
elgondolkoztat

There's a feeling I get when I look to the west
Van egy érzés, amit akkor érzek, mikor nyugatra tekintek
And my spirit is crying for leaving
És a lelkem távozásért sír
In my thoughts I have seen rings of smoke through the trees
Gondolataimban füstköröket láttam a fák között
And the voices of those who stand looking
És azok hangját, akik csak néznek

Ooh, it makes me wonder
Ó, ez elgondolkoztat
Ooh, it really makes me wonder
Ó, ez tényleg elgondolkoztat

And it's whispered that soon if we all call the tune
És suttogják, hogy hamarosan, ha kezünkbe vesszük a sorsunk
Then the piper will lead us to reason
Akkor világos lesz minden
And a new day will dawn for those who stand long
És új nap  fog virradni azokra, akik soká vártak
And the forests will echo with laughter
És az erdők nevetéstől fognak visszhangzani

If there's a bustle in your hedgerow, don't be alarmed now
Ha valami történik benned, ne légy riadt most
It's just a spring clean for the May queen
Ez csak a tavaszi takarítás Május királynétól
Yes, there are two paths you can go by, but in the long run
Igen két út van, amin mehetsz, de hosszútávon
There's still time to change the road you're on
Még van időd megváltoztatni az utat, melyen haladsz

And it makes me wonder.
És
ez elgondolkoztat

Your head is humming and it won't go, in case you don't know
A fejed zúg és nem múlik el, ha esetleg nem tudnád
The piper's calling you to join him
A dudás hív, hogy csatlakozz
Dear lady, can you hear the wind blow, and did you know
Kedves hölgy, hallod ahogy a szél fúj, és tudtad
Your stairway lies on the whispering wind
A lépcsőd a suttogó szelen fekszik

And as we wind on down the road
És amint tovább kanyargunk az úton
Our shadows taller than our soul
Árnyékunk nagyobb a lelkünknél
There walks a lady we all know
Ott sétál egy hölgy, akit mindnyájan ismerünk
Who shines white light and wants to show
Aki fehér fényben
tündöklik és meg akarja mutatni
How everything still turns to gold
Hogy mégis minden arannyá változik
And if you listen very hard
És ha nagyon figyelsz
The tune will come to you at last
A dallam elér hozzád végül
When all are one and one is all
Amikor mindenki egy és csak azt akarja
To be a rock and not to roll
Hogy szikla legyen, és ne falevél

And she's buying a stairway to heaven

És lépcsőt vesz a mennyországba

A Review of The Watchmen

Writer: Alan Moore Artist : Dave Gibbons


Because of the running Watchmen movie, we felt that this month’s comic article could be more up-to-date. There’s a new trend nowadays, with the recent evolution of the CGI it is now possible to make movie adaptations of comic bestsellers. Some of these movies are definetly not for children. There have been an evolution in the comic business too, and now there are as many „mature” comics as any other. These comics contain much more violance or more realistic heroes or have serious philosophycal depth. We can simply conclude that the comic business has matured.

:)

One of these mature comics is perhaps one of the best comics of all time, and it is a must for all comics fans. Some say that if you haven’t read a graphic novel before and you have to read one, then this should be the one. Personally, I can say similar things. Although I don’t think that it is the best comic available, but it is one of the best. I can compare its impact to the film Fight Club. Because of the strong symbolism, if you want to understand everything clearly, it is possible, that you need the comic more than once. It is also possible, moreover, there’s a great chance to discover something new during every re-read. It is a 12 part limited series.

 

Alan Moore, who deserves an article here sooner or later, is one of the best writers in the business. If the director of the film is visonary, then Moore as a writer is at least prophetic. He used the story to deconstruct the superhero concept: it focuses on the development of the protagonists personality and on their struggles.

Watchmen takes place in an alternate history, where superheroes emerged in the USA in the 1940s and 1960s. In this alternate history, with the help of the superheroes, the USA wins the Vietnam war and it’s on the edge of a nuclear war with the Soviet Union. Freelance masked adventurers are outlawed and most of the costumed superheroes are in retirement, but there are few, who work for the government. The story begins with the murder of such a government sponsored superhero and the investigation pulls many of them out from retir
ement.

"I suppose I was just thinking, 'That'd be a good way to start a comic book: have a famous super-hero found dead.' As the mystery unraveled, we would be led deeper and deeper into the real heart of this super-hero's world, and show a reality that was very different to the general public image of the super-hero."
 
—Alan Moore on the basis for Watchmen

Watchmen was designed to showcase the unique abilities of the comics medium and to highlight its particular strengths. Moore said that Watchmen was designed to be read "four or five times," with some links and allusions only becoming apparent to the reader after several readings. Gibbons said he deliberately constructed the visual look of Watchmen so that each page would be identifiable as part of that particular series and "not some other comic book".

Seduction Of The Inocent

The artist tried to draw the series with "a particular weight of line, using a hard, stiff pen that didn't have much modulation in terms of thick and thin" which he hoped "would differentiate it from the usual lush, fluid kind of comic book line". Gibbons described the series as "a comic about comics".

We have "tested" the film with Rendszermumus, I read Watchmen before, he didn’t. It is one of the better adaptations, but it’s impossible to film the Watchmen, so there are slight modifications. We can conclude that it follows the comics as nearly as possible. Moore however does not like the idea to make films from his comics.

As a comic, Watchmen is 10/10, as a film, it’s 10/8. It is worth seeing it, and it is worth reading it.

George Gordon (Lord) Byron - On This Day I Complete My Thirty-sixth Year
(Born Januar 22, 1788, Died April 19, 1824)


T'
IS time the heart should be unmoved,
Since others it hath ceased to move:

Yet, though I cannot be beloved,

Still let me love!


My days are in the yellow leaf;
The flowers and fruits of love are gone;

The worm, the canker, and the grief

Are mine alone!


The fire that on my bosom preys
Is lone as some volcanic isle;

No torch is kindled at its blaze--

A funeral pile.


The hope, the fear, the jealous care,
The exalted portion of the pain

And power of love, I cannot share,

But wear the chain.


But 'tis not thus--and 'tis not here--
Such thoughts should shake my soul nor now,

Where glory decks the hero's bier,

Or binds his brow.


The sword, the banner, and the field,
Glory and Greece, around me see!

The Spartan, borne upon his shield,

Was not more free.


Awake! (not Greece--she is awake!)
Awake, my spirit! Think through whom

Thy life-blood tracks its parent lake,

And then strike home!


Tread those reviving passions down,
Unworthy manhood!--unto thee

Indifferent should the smile or frown

Of beauty be.


If thou regrett'st thy youth, why live?
The land of honourable death

Is here:--up to the field, and give

Away thy breath!


Seek out--less often sought than found--
A soldier's grave, for thee the best;

Then look around, and choose thy ground,
And take thy rest.

Bill Gates
(Born October 28, 1955)

William Henry "Bill" Gates IIIBill Gates is an American business magnate, philanthropist, author, and chairman of Microsoft, the software company he founded with Paul Allen. He is ranked consistently one of the world's wealthiest people and the wealthiest overall as of March 2009.

Gates is one of the best-known entrepreneurs of the personal computer revolution. Although he is admired by many, a large number of industry insiders criticize his business tactics, which they consider anti-competitive, an opinion which has in some cases been upheld by the courts.

Bill Gates stepped down as chief executive officer of Microsoft in January, 2000. He remained as chairman and created the position of chief software architect. Gates's last full-time day at Microsoft was June 27, 2008. He remains at Microsoft as non-executive chairman. From Microsoft's founding in 1975 until 2006, Gates had primary responsibility for the company's product strategy. He aggressively broadened the company's range of products, and wherever Microsoft achieved a dominant position he vigorously defended it. Microsoft launched its first retail version of Microsoft Windows on November 20, 1985, and in August, the company struck a deal with IBM to develop a separate operating system called OS/2.

Bill Gates
Time magazine named Gates one of the 100 people who most influenced
the 20th century, as well as one of the 100 most influential people of 2004, 2005, and 2006. Time also collectively named Gates, his wife Melinda and alternative rock band U2's lead singer Bono as the 2005 Persons of the Year for their humanitarian efforts. Gates was number one on the "Forbes 400" list from 1993 through to 2007 and number one on Forbes list of "The World's Richest People" from 1995 to 2007 and 2009. In 1999, Gates's wealth briefly surpassed $101 billion, causing the media to call him a "centibillionaire".


In November 2006, he and his wife were awarded the Order of the Aztec Eagle for their philanthropic work around the world in the areas of health and education.

Formula 1
 

Formula One, abbreviated to F1, and currently officially referred as the FIA Formula One World Championship is the highest class of auto racing sanctioned by the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA). The "formula" in the name refers to a set of rules to which all participants and cars must comply. The F1 season consists of a series of races, known as Grands Prix, held on purpose-built circuits, and to a lesser extent, former public roads and closed city streets. The results of each race are combined to determine two annual World Championships, one for the drivers and one for the constructors, with both drivers and constructor teams required to be holders of valid Super Licences, the highest class racing licence issued by the FIA.

Formula One cars race at high speeds, up Alfa-Romeo (1951)to 360 km/h . Modern Formula One cars are mid-engined open cockpit, open wheel single-seaters. The chassis is made largely of carbon fibre composites, rendering it light but extremely stiff and strong. The whole car, including engine, fluids and driver, weighs only 605 kg.

The Formula One series has its roots in the European Grand Prix Motor Racing (q.v. for pre-1947 history) of the 1920s and 1930s. The first Formula One World Championship was won by Italian Giuseppe Farina in his Alfa Romeo in 1950, barely defeating his Argentine teammate Juan Manuel Fangio.

Beginning in the 1970s, Bernie Ecclestone rearranged the management of Formula One's commercial rights; he is widely credited with transforming the sport into the billion-dollar business it is today. Michael Schumacher and Ferrari won an unprecedented five consecutive drivers’ championships and six consecutive constructors’ championships between 1999 and 2004. Schumacher set many new records, including those for Grand Prix wins (91), wins in a season (13 of 18), and most drivers' championships.

In the interest of making the sport truer to its role as a World Championship, FOM president Bernie Ecclestone has initiated and organised a number of Grands Prix in new countries and continues to discuss new future races. The sport's rapid expansion into new areas of the globe also leaves some question as to which races will be cut.
