To anyone out there interested in foreign languages or linguistics, I have just started a blog where I will post anything that piques my interest about that subject. I will also post brief spotlights about interesting languages once or twice a week which highlight the interesting cultural and linguistic qualities that these languages contribute to the “ethnosphere”. So if you think that sounds right up your alley then check it out!
There is a great deal of confusion regarding this film and the number of retakes of certain scenes. According to the Guinness Book of Records, the scene where Wendy is backing up the stairs swinging the baseball bat was shot 127 times, which is a record for the most takes of a single scene. However, both Steadicam operator Garrett Brown and assistant editor Gordon Stainforth say this is inaccurate - the scene was shot about 35-45 times. Brown does say however that the scene where Hallorann explains to Danny what shining is was shot 148 times, which is a world record.
Mission Golden-eyed Tree Frog (Trachycephalus resinifictrix)
Also known as the blue or Amazon milk frog, the mission golden-eyed tree frog is a large species of tree frog native to the Amazon Rainforest in South America. This species gets the name ‘milk frog’ because when stressed the frog will excrete a milky fluid from its pores. The milk frog like other tree frog frequents humid rainforests, usually in vegetation or near moving water. Like most frogs the milk frogs diet consists of insects and small arthropods. They have also been introduced into the pet trade as they are relatively easy to care for.
