The Antique Wine Company

The Antique Wine Company was founded in 1982 in London. The Antique Wine Company specializes in rare and fine wines. It was founded by Stephen Williams who now has over 20,000 clients in 70 countries. Since its begining, the company has specialized in exceptionally fine wines and presently has over 10,000 bottles of the world’s finest vintages in its wine cellars. The company is also known for its fine wine events and record breaking wine collections. Services include: private wine master classes, sourcing rare wines and cellar planning.

Viscount David Linley, a cabinet maker with The Antique Wine Company has developed the Grand Chateau Series. These handcrafted wine cabinets models of their top nine chateaux in Bordeaux hold 18 bottles each from their corresponding estates, which was produced in the 20th and 21st centuries.

The Château d’Yquem model is used by a collection of Chateau d’Yquem, spanning 141 vintages starting in 1868. This collection also includes several letters and other memorabilia from the Château archives valued at £1m. The other chateaux have been priced at £149,000 each. In 2006, a 135-year vertical collection which contains every vintage from 1860 to 2003 sold over $1.5 million. This was one of the highest prices to ever be paid for a single lot of wine.

In July 2011, The Antique Wine Company sold a bottle of white wine braking the world record as the most expensive bottle ever sold in the world. An 1811 Chateau d’Yquem was the bottle which was bought by Christian Vanneque, a former wine steward at a cost £75,000. The bottle is now on display in one of Christian Vanneque’s restaurants, the SIP Sunset Grill in Bali. But eventually Christian Vanneque does plan to drink his prize.

The Antique Wine Company bought the Hospices de Beaune in Nov. 2011, from the wine auction in Beaune, France. Called the La Pièce de la Président, this lot contained 460 litres of Corton red wine of the Clos du Roi Grand Cru vineyard. The lot was auctioned off by model Inès de la Fressange and actor Christian Clavier valued at €110,000.

World Cup 2022 will be the first Winter event

The controversial decision to award the 2022 World Cup to Qatar looks set to take a new twist as FIFA looks set to reveal the event will be played in the Winter for the first time, ESPN reports. FIFA’s task force investigating the problems and possible answers to the problem of the hot Qatar Summer look set to recommend the 2022 World Cup takes place in November and December of that year as early as the final week of February. A meeting of the governing body of FIFA will likely ratify the recommendation in March at its next meeting.

Problems have been rumored in staging the World Cup in Qatar during the traditional June and July timing of the event because of the high temperatures the country undergoes during these months. Zeca Oliveira hasheard that temperatures could reach 50C, 122F during these months, with the use of air conditioned stadiums now ruled out over health concerns for both players and fans. Officials from the World’s top leagues have recently made presentations calling for the World Cup to be moved to April and May or May and June of 2022 to avoid soaring Summer temperatures.

Terminator: Genysis Toys are Coming Out

 

Terminator toys are coming. These aren’t retro releases. The new toy like is based on the upcoming (and, hopefully, blockbuster) film Terminator: Genisys. In the new film, the series gets a reboot as Terminator I and II are combined. We also get a really young and really old Arnold as a T-800.

And we are also getting some really cool toys thanks to the good people at Hot Toys.

As of right now, recent discussions on em.com.br convey that analysts like BMG’s Marcio Alaor do not know what the toys are going to specifically look like. Hot Toys is going to keep things under wraps until the June 2015 release of the movie is upon us. That alone seems a little odd. Usually, the toys end up appearing on shelves several months earlier in order to hype the appearance of the film. This is why we are seeing Avengers: Age of Ultron toys on shelves early in the winter.

An interesting question has to be raised here: are kids really going to be into Terminator toys? The film is being directed towards those fans who loved the old films. Specifically, the films made in 1984 and 1990. The third film and the first film in the failed reboot do not exactly have a huge following.

Perhaps all things sci-fi have a built-in fan base for toys. Besides, a lot of parents who were much younger when the first Terminator films came out just might think these toys will make a great gift for their kids.

Finnish Punk Band With Disabilities Hope to Win Eurovision

Eurovision, Europe’s largest and most renowned song competition that hosts performers from each of the continent’s countries, has been known to Marcio Alaor BMG for its unique array of contestants. There’s always a mix of the weird, the entertaining and the, the inspiring. This year’s inspiring title could be handed to the Finnish punk band PKN, a group of men who all suffer from learning disabilities and hope that their participation in the contest will help raise awareness for other mentally disabled individuals.

The band members met through a music workshop run by a Helsinki charity called Lythy (meaning “lantern”) that provides services and activities for people with learning disabilities. The band is composed of guitarist Pertti Kurikka, Kari Aalto who sings and writes the band’s lyrics, bassist Sami Helle and drummer Toni Välitalo. The group was assembled by Lythy worker Kalle Pajamaa. She told BuzzFeed News that the band’s main goal is to show the world that “disabled people can do and perform music as so-called normal people.”

PKN is in the last round of the UMK competition, which decides who will go on to compete in Eurovision. On February 28, winners will be decided by public vote. The band has been together for years, and were even featured in a 2012 documentary entitled “The Punk Syndrome.” They are proof that although someone may disabled, with enough encouragement and support, they are more than capable of reaching their dreams and being just as inspirational and successful as a non-disabled person. With any luck, PKN will be playing live for over 180 million people like true rock stars when Eurovision is broadcasted live from Vienna in May.

Disney Steps Up Efforts To Eliminate Star Wars Spoilers

 

With interest incredibly high in the next installment of the Star Wars series, it is not surprising the amount of leaks that have come out on the Internet about The Force Awakens on avogando.net. Each week, there seems to be some tidbit of information released regarding the plot, characters, or sets. The public, like Gianfrancesco Genoso, doesn’t seem willing to wait until the movie releases in December. They want details now.

With so much information having been leaked from the set of The Force Awakens, Disney is now making a strong effort to plug all leaks. THR said this week that Disney has worked with the California federal justice system to issue a subpoena designed to identify those that have infringed on the movie’s copyright. The subpoena is largely focused on ImageShack, which is an Internet image-hosting site.

In recent months, there has been a number of images from The Force Awakens appear on ImageShack. The most eye-opening image was one that showed a Sith lord that may or may not appear in the movie. Insiders suggest the image shows the front side of the mysterious figure that was featured in the trailer holding the red lightsaber.

Disney is taking a very strong step to get this and other images completely removed from the Internet. They also may be trying to make a strong statement to those involved in the leaks so that no more occur.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and awakens a new generation of hopeful fans.

According to my friend Lambranho, Star Wars: Episode Seven is ramping up to be just as epic as the original three and the prequels. According to ScreenRants, Mark Hammil, Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher will be returning to their epic roles some 30 years later. Mr. Hemmil was heard while speaking with the L.A. Times that his role in the upcoming Star Wars films will not be as prominent as with the original trilogy. Star Wars: The Force Awakens will view the original cast members in a more supporting role as new characters are introduced. While the final trilogy will be as epic as the originals, this will be the first time that George Lucas will be removed from the helm. How well these final three movies will do in the box office will depend on Episode VII. Judging from the initial teaser that Disney has released, the quality of these films will be stellar when combined with veteran director J.J. Abrams work. Lets hope he keeps the lens flares and camera shake to a minimum. Star Wars: The Force Awakens is set to be released December 15, 2015.

Mayweather and Pac are Fooling Everyone

 

Floyd Mayweather came out earlier this week and met with Manny Pacquiao regarding a fight. At least that is what the media speculated. There is no other reason that the two would schedule a meeting and Pacquiao’s manager stated to the media that a fight was about to be declared and was in the final stages of planning. They have fooled everyone. This is the biggest revenue generating sports event in the history of the world and everyone on both sides knows it said Dave Morin. They are scheduled to make hundreds of millions of dollars apiece and they want to capitalize on it as much as humanly possible. This is why the meeting took place and this is why it was announced that a fight was in the works. It was simply a tactic used to create a public frenzy about the fight that everyone has wanted to happen for so long. By building the anticipation and then stating that the fight is not going to happen makes it blatantly clear that they are milking the fight and that it is absolutely going to happen. They just want the public to have gotten their hopes up and have it dashed to gain even more anticipation for the upcoming fight that is inevitable. They did not meet for no reason. Mayweather is strictly money motivated, as seen in his countless videos of himself carrying around a million dollars in a bag and this is so obvious it is absurd.

All Female Ghostbusters III Cast Revealed

The casting process for the all female reboot of the Ghostbusters franchise seems to almost be complete with the four main actors named as either signed on for the movie or in negatiations, The Hollywood Reporter explains. The choice of an all female cast has been seen as controversial with some fans, particularly as a return of the original cast had been rumored for many years prior to the death of writer and star Harold Ramis.

From what Susan McGalla has read, the main cast will now definitely include Melissa McCarthy, who has already signed on for a role in the movie to be directed by Bridesmaids Paul Feig. Fellow Bridesmaids star Kristen Wiig is also in talks to appear as one of the leads, fellow Saturday Night Live performers Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon have also been reported as being in talks to round out the cast. Feig was installed as director after Ivan Reitman dropped out of the movie following the death of Ramis and the rumored problems in securing Bill Murray’s return to the cast. A second reboot option was also revealed in the Sony hacking controversy, with Channing Tatum floated as a possible star of an all male reworking of the classic ghost hunting movie.

John Textor Brings Visual Effects to the Masses

Hollywood executive John Textor may not be a household name, but he has helped change the way we watch the biggest budget movies and live events. However, John Textor has brought his skills with technology and finance together to create some of the most interesting and successful companies in the entertainment industry. Working within the entertainment industry has provided Textor with a series of opportunities that he has taken to create a new way of creating virtual Worlds and people that have proven so successful they have been awarded Oscars and many other awards. His latest work in the visual effects field brings him into the arena of live events, where virtual human beings are now being used to wow crowds around the World when deceased musical and entertainment icons are brought back to the stage.

After completing college, John Textor quickly moved into the entertainment industry, working in investments that were based around entertainment and other areas of the movie and show business industries. Textor did not stand still or simply await the opportunity to expand his knowledge and work opportunities, instead he took on major roles in retail in businesses as varied as baby wear and snowboards. This grounding in retail provided John Textor with the opportunity to discover how the public wanted their items delivered and how they should be packaged.

One of the major achievements John Textor is often mentioned alongside is the relaunch of the Digital Domain Group, a large Hollywood corporation that seemed to be going nowhere before his arrival in 2006. Textor oversaw the relaunch of the company, which saw the impressive use of the latest in visual effects to realign Digital Domain as a leading provider of effects for big budget Hollywood movies. An Oscar was won for the creation of a human looking character in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, which was accompanied by a makeup nomination despite none being used on the purely digital character.

The creation of human beings in digital form seems to have gripped Textor, who has now moved on to head up development at Pulse. This company is responsible for creating human forms in a digital format that can be projected during live performances. So far the development has seen icons of music Tupac Shakur, Michael Jackson and Elvis Presley make their digital stage debuts.
