Dexter contact sheetIan Albinson and Alex Ulloa collect intriguing title sequences from film and television at their blog, The Art of the Title Sequence, where you can watch the opening credits roll on Dexter, Soylent Green, Iron Man, or even the much-maligned super-bomb The Island of Dr. Moreau, which can count its beautiful title sequence as, perhaps, its only merit.

Ulloa tells Creative Review (May 2009): “We want to be to the history and future of the form of title sequencing what the opening sequence to Jean-Luc Godard’s Le Mépris is to cinema: an exploration of what is universally felt, but with some fresh discourse.”

Well, ART is part of humans life that causes influence and different way of giving importance on things. Films are great application of Art! We can see inner ideology of film makers with their masterpiece. Cheeto Jesus is not a new recipe for the sacrament, but instead it's a Cheeto that has been interpreted to look like a kneeling, and praying Jesus, dubbed Cheesus. It was discovered in a bag of the snack food by Sara and Dan Bell. They have discussed putting it up for sale. Believe it or not, some people get big money loans for artifacts of this kind – a grilled cheese sandwich that was said to feature the Virgin Mary went for about $28,000. If http://personalmoneystore.com/moneyblog/2009/05/19/cheesus-discovery-couple-divine-cash/ Cheeto Jesus goes for half of that, it will mean some debt relief for the Bells.
