I just received word that Bill Paxton died of complications from surgery. He starred in such movies as Aliens, Twister, and Titanic. He was in a CBS series called "Training Day."

I'm seeing it all over Facebook. Very sad to hear this, but we're going to start seeing more of our favorite actors and musicians die since most of the greats are now 60+.

Can someone explain to me what "ma" in Na'vi is supposed to mean in english? I know it doesn't mean my. Oeyä means my. So what does "ma" in lets say "ma tsmukan" signify?

It can be translated as ''dear'' or 'O'. The usage of this word simply implies that you're directly addressing someone.

no one will ever convince me that Neytiri didn't say "my Jake!" in her distress at finding his body on the floor of the trailer, instead of 'ma Jake'. it's my hopeless romantic nature driving this, and the fact that i always hear "my Jake" when i watch the stellar Avatar CE. i find it so endearing that she says "my Jake", it's something that Neytiri would say, regardless of grammar or usage conventions.

^It does sound like she is saying "my" in that scene, maybe it was "suppossed" to be ma, but in the heat of the scene Zoë actually said my?

i am painting my first room today and tomorrow, taking a break right now while two of the walls dry on the first coat. i am painting my home office, which was formerly one of the three bedrooms on the third floor, changing it from the awful 70s minty green, to a more pleasing neutral 'prairie dust' tan color. i am painting three of the rooms this year, the home office now, the den/man-cave during the summer, and the garage in the fall. both of those rooms are on the first floor, but i have to save up some paint supplies money from work trips in the spring. home sweet home.

I am looking for a printing company that can do high quality poster sized prints. Do any of you know of a printing company I could look into? Also, I should mention that I've looked into a few companies already and I've ran into a problem. What I want printed has partial nudity in it and some companies see all forms of nudity as pornographic.

“Images cannot contain any threatening, obscene, pornographic or profane material or any other material that could give rise to any civil or criminal liability under applicable law.”

There's a big difference in nonsexual nudity and people having sex. Come on!

So this is probably going to be a challenge. lol

You could always look around for local printing shops where you live rather than check online - they might be more lenient in the nudity regard, and makes it easier to collaborate and figure out exactly the solution you need. I've collaborated with a couple in the past though that's generally been for large-scale (10000+ copies) jobs, not sure how easy it usually is to collaborate on smaller orders.

did anyone ever post the 2006 Avatar Art Video on youtube? it was that short synopsis video from 2006, that was included on the Avatar CE blu-ray set, with all the haunting and eerie music and art in the video. most of my blu-rays are still packed up along with all my electronics because i'm still moving stuff around and painting, and i really wanted to see it just now, lol. i can't find it on youtube, if it was ever posted.
