  • The Sport Ju-Jutsu system for kids is designed to stimulate movement and to encourage the kids natural joy of moving their bodies. The kids train all exercises from Sport Ju-Jutsu but many academys leave out punches and kicks for their youngest athlethes.



What are toys? Well, for one thing, toys are NOT toys. I mean, look at how the word is used today:

"...something diminutive, especially in comparison with like objects.
[ relates to what Barthes said about your little plastic kitchen set, used back then to train little girls to cook plastic food in hopes that when they grow up they won't burn it, while now-a-days it still has the same underlying purpose, but thanks to the radical feminist movement that little kitchen set has become more of a torture device for children to force-feed plastic food into their parents' mouths. TAKE THAT! Barthes would be so proud...) object, often a small representation of something familiar, as an animal or person, for children or others to play with; plaything.
[ ...others? unless, the definition is referring to adult toys meant to mimic the human genitalia, which in that case, toys = sex... SAY NO! Just kidding. Basically this definition still partakes in the "small representation" theme that still goes along with Barthes' point, however it is not as vague as the first definition. This one adds even more cause to the point! Hello!? SMALL REPRESENTATION!? DO THOSE LITTLE PLASTIC KITCHENS RING A BELL!? (which btw, another thing-> PLASTIC SUCKS! WOODEN TOYS RULE! Barthes really knows what he's talking about. ::2 thumbs up::)]

...something that serves for or as if for diversion, rather than for serious pratical use." [Now this one totally contradicts Barthes' theory, but it makes a perfect example of how times have changed; those damn little plastic kitchens are now meant as means of distraction (especially knowing that your children can't burn down the house while cooking with a fake stove), while mommy & daddy are off using their "adult toys." There is no need to prepare anyone for the future, especially not training your kids to be the perfect adult considering that now-a-days adults need to be distracted too because they ran out of their ADD meds and hey, I don't trust them cooking in the real kitchen. Today, adults = children without hopes of growing up, thus they cannot be expected to brainwash their kids when they are still trying to find their lost marbles, while those parents who do buy the baby brainwashing toys are even worse because they can't even see behind their Hitler Youth scheme. And then those parents smart enough to know the truth are the worst because they would in turn = Hitler himself. Case closed. Goodnight everyone! You've been a great audience. Cya next time when we talk about another Barthes Topic.]

(Special dedications to Barthes, my mommy and daddy, my agent and my cat and oh! thanks!)

My New Toy

My New Toy

My new Nikon D300 arrived late last night, and I grabbed it and shot off a few frames before my daughter turned off all of the lights to show me her new toy. The aperture was already set to f1.4, so I pushed the ISO to 1600 and tried to steady the camera as best I could. The shutter speed went down to 1/20, which is way too low for a 50mm, but I've learned with kids, you have to catch 'em when they're enthusiastic. Taking a few minutes to change lenses and adjust settings would have ruined the moment.

The super low light performance of the Nikon D3 has set a new standard, so its hard to get worked up about ISO 1600 on the D300. The detail and noise are better than its predecessors, and pretty good, and if it weren't for the D3 I'd be really happy with it. This was shot RAW, and run through DFine noise reduction and smart sharpening in Photoshop.

The good news here is the matrix metering did a great job balancing the bright light of the toy with her face, all in *total darkness*. Next time I'll try ISO 3200 and use more depth of field to get more of the shot in focus, but you don't have a lot of options in this light.
