Art in SkyFall

Several famous paintings and a poem are featured prominently in the 2012 movie SkyFall. Some are allegorical, used to emphasize the SkyFall's underlying theme of Old versus New, and others are nods to the real world.

After having survived two hours and twenty three minutes of viewing SkyFall, I have selected perhaps the only passage in Thunderball wherein we get a glimpse of the Bond Brain. It bears on both movies and people.

Fifty years ago this was the first film for Bond, so in honor of a half century of cinematic 007 we will turn the Bond Brain to Dr. No, but by the book, not the film, for our purposes.

This interview with Young Bond author Charlie Higson is an excerpt from the book Becoming Bond by Jason Wain.

“The smell and noise and confusion of a hallway full of schoolboys can be quite awful at twenty past seven in the morning”

Nico Knüpfer and his girlfriend Janette made this photo reportage of their visit of Casino Royale filming locations in the center of Prague.

In this installment of The Bond Brain we read our tarot cards, cast our spells, avoid getting chomped on by sharks, and learn how to Live it Up (but not let die).

After looking at the Bond Brain in the Casino Royale novel, we continue with the Bond Brain as evidenced by quotes from the Fleming novels. In this installment, we not only quote 007, but the late and lamented Darko Kerim, the Brit’s man in Istanbul in From Russia With Love.

We continue our journey through the books to glean wisdom from the Bond Brain, and in this installment, we shall fill a rather sensuous but cynical basket of goodies from Casino Royale.

In this series of articles, we are going to take a look at the Bond brain as it manifests in the books, and see what useful lessons we can learn in applying Bond brain techniques in our own missions. As Casino Royale was the first Fleming novel, so shall that be our first stop.

Besides the martinis, girls and guns, one of the fascinating features of the James Bond Lifestyle is the experiences of international travel.

The ASP 9mm - A Real Life Novelty of James Bond

More than just a simple novelty in James Bond's arsenal is the ASP, which replaced his famous Walther PPK as his favorite sidearm during the later 1980s novels written by John Gardner and up through the mid 1990s novels GoldenEye and Cold. 

In Part I and Part II of 'Skiing', we explored the basic expectations of your first experience with skiing. We discussed ways to prepare for your first day on the slopes, including how to get into shape, and what clothing you should wear to keep you warm and dry. We talked about what you can expect when you arrive at the ski resort, weighed the options for choosing your equipment, and we touched on the fundamentals of skiing. Now, it's time to strap on your skis and hit the slopes. 

Let's face it, no matter what we do, no matter where we are, a large part of what we do is rather dull. Boring. Even those of us who actually performed intelligence functions in the real world at one time, will admit that much of what we did was a snore. Bond, being a fictional creation, a two dimensional denizen of book and film, never has a dull moment apparently.

In Part I of 'Skiing,' we focused on the importance of getting yourself into good shape, and how to put together a respectable ski outfit that would make James Bond proud. Now, it's time to hit the slopes. 

This is the first part in a series of three articles about Skiing, written by Joseph Darlington, aka Head of Section / BeingJamesBond.

As mysterious as the iconic film character, James Bond himself, the theft of the classic 1965 Aston Martin DB5 is one of the mos

How to tie a Windsor and Four-In Hand necktie

A quick guide on how to tie a Windsor Knot or Four-in-Hand Knot. The Windsor Knot can best be made with long, wide ties, since the knot is quite complicated, and a short tie might not be long enough to keep it length. The Four-in-Hand is the easy, never-go-wrong knot, so make sure you know how to tie it!

In part two of "Texas Hold'em," we discussed the specifics of Texas Hold'em poker,

In part one of 'Texas hold'em', we discussed the basics of poker, the winning poke

Bond isn't always crashing cars, dodging bullets, saving the world, or servicing the ladies. He does everyday stuff also, just like we all do.

I am sure, that many of you have enjoyed the remote and beautiful island in many of the scenes of The Man With The Golden Gun.

advertorial - Other than the rules of the game itself, there are very few rules in online poker - since you are playing by yourself on your own computer, you can pretty much do and behave however you want.

In the last decade, Texas Hold’em poker has grown in popularity. Grandfathers and grandsons alike appear to be playing on the same table. Even James Bond himself plays the game.
