Remember March 15th?

March 15th was the day I wrote…

The last two weeks have been crazy busy. I haven’t had time to post a thing. Hopefully later this week. Thanks for your patience.
(ps – I’ve thrown some stuff up onto Facebook and Tumblr, so check me out there.)

Well…
Apparently I never made it back to this site. I haven’t really posted anything here in about a month. To you, my dear and loyal reader, please allow me to extend a sincere and heartfelt apology.

The last 30 days have been busy ones, but I do not feel like I have accomplished a thing. I still haven’t finished the projects I was working on in February. I feel like I haven’t had enough sleep in a month, and so I use every free moment I have to take a quick nap. I seem to only have enough energy to talk the dog in the morning, and that’s about it. My life is a dull as hell, but I can’t find the time and energy to make it better.

Ugh.

Anyway, like I said on the 15th, I’ve been posting things on Facebook and Tumblr instead of here. Let me repost some of the  links I’ve passed around in the last 30 days or so.

An apology: While I thought I was being witty at the time, I think I may have made a real ass of myself last night. – Lesson learned, major lack of sleep can be just as bad as binge drinking!

Tyler Durden Meme: The Bible

Into An Asteroid By Dane Ault –

My favorite childhood video game and my favorite childhood movie, combined into one great piece! (though, to be nit-picky, the TIEs should not have the bent wing design.  They should be the classic straight wings.  just saying.)(Yes, I’m a MAJOR SW nerd, and I know it!)

Someone just pointed out to me that Ze Frank’s “The Show” was 5 years ago. Crap, where has the time gone?

Update- Ze is now adding retrospective commentary to “The Show”.  Interesting stuff.

3EANUTS – Like “Garfield Minus Garfield” removed Garfield the Cat from the Garfield comic strip, which then gave the strip a whole new feal, this site removes the last panel of a four panel Peanuts strip, to give that classic strip a completely different take on life. – CLICK THIS LINK

This has been stuck in my head all morning. The people at the dog park kept looking at me funny as the lyrics kept escaping my brain by slipping past my lips. Embarrassing.

That said, I still really love this song, and everything about the video.

Arse Kicking

leave a comment »

My camera is kicking my arse! I broke down and bought this book.  I’m now reading it for the second time.  I feel like a noob. I just want to create photos half as good as Lauren Farmer’s, is that too much to ask?

(Maybe I need some new lenses…)

“Movie Review In 140 Characters Or Less” #67 to #70

leave a comment »

TRUE GRIT – This movie belongs to Hailee Steinfeld. That girl had true grit! (sorry for the bad word play)

TAKERS – I wanted to like this movie, but… I just didn’t. Oh, Hayden Christensen, your better then this. Please try harder next time.

BURIED – Way better then I expected. An great film making experiment. Ryan Reynolds nailed it. Watch this one!

BRONSON – I’m probably not the first to compare it to CLOCKWORK ORANGE in tone, am I? No? I didn’t think so. An interesting character study.
