I just received new that Le Reve, the (unofficial) and my personal favorite Cirque Du Soleil show which is currently running at the Wynn Las Vegas Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, will go “dark” on March 6th for a whole month.The show will be back in April, April 5th to be precise. There will be a new pricing structure after the relaunch of the show in April. Here is the current and the upcoming pricing structure in comparison. Pricinguntil March 6th   starting April 5th $79 Rows M-O $99 Splash Zone Rows A-C$119 Rows D-L   $99 Rows A-B$119 Rows C-K$159 Row L – VIP INDULGENCE PACKAGE No $79 ticket anymore. The cheapest ticket is now $20 or 25% more expensive. The highest price ticket will be $40 more than the current high price tickets, but that is a bit misleading. The tickets that are today $119 will remain $119. What’s new is the VIP Package.The VIP Package includes. Seating in the Champagne Circle, which is the back row of the theater, that will be completely reconfigured with very generously-scaled, plush, luxurious seats and loads of leg room; One bottle of complimentary Perrier Jouet Champagne per couple (or half bottle for individuals) with exclusive bottle service Chocolate covered strawberries The Wynn will install video monitors in the Champagne Circle which will give a private peak behind the scenes as well as underwater and overhead angles of the action during the show!

Okay, I just posted my nerdy videos. Now I would like to show you some controversial stuff. Kind of conspiracy theory, but not really. There is no witch hunt for the secret illuminati or something like that. It’s disturbing nevertheless. America Freedom to Fascism (Documentary, 1h 50min) (c)2006Written and produced by Aaron Russo.Things you probably did not know about the Federal Reserve, IRS, federal income tax and more. Hey, based on that, am I (and you) not required to pay federal income tax. Well , the IRS might asked for it nicely ar gunpoint if you start to argue with them. “The one with the gun is right”, that’s my honesy opinion (at the moment hehe).IMDB Entry | Buy the DVD | Link to VideoThe Money Masters (Documentary in two parts)Documentary about central banking and reserve banking, debt, taxes and their development throughout the modern world. That’s odd. No entry in IMDB and no DVD available at Amazon.com. This documentary is older than the “America Freedom to Fascism” one. They sell the DVD at least at their website. IMDB Entry??? | Website | Buy the DVD | Part 1 (1h 43min) | Part 2 (1h 46min)Part 1Part 2Have fun watching and thinking about it. Cheers,Carsten aka Roy/SAC

I just did a post at ReveNews on Friday where I showed some of my favorite short movies. Most are related to affiliate marketing, one way or another so I thought that ReveNews would be an appropriate place to publish it.Now the movies I would like to highlight now are nothing for ReveNews. Why?1) they are too long2) are for nerds and not marketersokay, here it comes.Pirates of the Silicon Valley (Full Movie, 10 Parts) (c)1999Rein-acted events of parts of the lives of Bill Gates and Steve Jobs about the beginnings of Microsoft and Apple Computers. This movie is done like a mix of featured film and documentary. It was produced for TV. I own the DVD myself. I actually own all Dvds of the videos/movies I highlight in this post.IMDB Entry | Buy the DVD Part one embedded. Here are the links to all parts, including the remaining parts 2 to 10.Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4 | Part 5Part 6 | Part 7 | Part 8 | Part 9 | Part X Triumph of the nerds (Documentary, 3 parts) (c)1984The history of the Personal Computer. With original footage. Now this is a documentary to 100% and not a “hybrid” like the “Pirates of the Silicon Valley”. It’s also shorter.IMDB Entry | Buy the DVD TRIUMPH OF NERDS: STEVE JOBS & BILL GATES 1 OF 3 Okay, that’s part one. Here are the Links to this part at DailyMotion and to the remaining parts[…]

I had my first anniversary 11 days ago on February 3rd, 2006. Anniversary, huh? Yeah! This might be not so important to you, but it is, or should be (at least) be for me. Gee, if I forget something like this, what about wedding anniversaries one day. My future wife is going to kill me. Well, I am safe today, since I am not married. I am single, busy single single = no girl friend. No valentines day gifts to forget. Yeah, it’s today, Valentines Day. You forgot that? I guess you have a wife, fiancé or other long term relationship. You would have remembered otherwise hehe.Okay, now jokes aside. Ten days ago was my 1st Blogger anniversary. That’s right, One year and ten days ago did I setup my first blog and posted my first blog entry, EVER!The first blog was this one and it started out as a blog on the blogger.com domain. It moved on the same month to Cumbrowski.com/RoySAC/Blog and in August 2006 to it current location at RoySAC.com/blog.The Blog got temporarily “hijacked”, metaphorical speaking, during the summer last year, when a business issue made me “abuse” my private art related blog (in a broader sense) to discuss issues that are as far off topic as a pork chops recipe on a Islamic or Jewish orthodox blog (conservative and reformed too for that matter, but that’s not the point).I got it back in July and moved my business related blogging to ReveNews.com, a blog dedicated to[…]

The Modern Merchanix Blog published in March, April and July 2006 three remarkable examples of nineteen thritees and fourties typewriter art, also known as keyboard art.Back to ASCII Art AcademyThe artwork was found in various preserved issues of the magazine “Popular Science” from 1939 and 1948. The Popular Science Magazine is still publishing today. They also have a website with a lot of (current ;)) content online. Visit the Popular Science Magazine Website. The art was created by the artists on classic mechanical typewriter machines. “Personal” Computers did not exist at that time yet, the term computer was not coined yet either and the ASCII standard was still 20-30 years away in the future.The following example is from 1939. One year earlier in 1938 did Germany’s Konrad Zuse finish the Z1, one of the first binary digital computers and a machine that could be controlled through a punch tape. The project started in 1936 and the Z1 is considered by many the “first computer” and Konrad Zuse the “Inventor of the modern Computer”.Source: Popular Science Magazine, Issue: 6-1939 Typewriter Artist Produces Pictures Like Tapestryby Rosaire J. BelangerPictures that resemble tapestry are produced with a typewriter by Rosaire J. Belanger, a mill worker in Saco, Me. Belanger first draws a pencil sketch on a sheet of paper, then inserts it in his typewriter and fills in the sketch with various characters to produce shading and outlines. With carbon paper, he transfers the picture onto graph paper, and copies it on blank[…]
