(no subject)

Okay, I have become fixated on Criminal Minds. And it seems in addition to Kirsten running her successful kickstarter film campaign, Shemar Moore is also running one on Indiegogo. His is for a romantic comedy.

So if you are a fan of Shemar's or of romantic comedies - which there are no longer enough of since Hollywood seems to make movies only for teenage boys, as was proven this week when, two female friends and I could not find one movie that was geared to or interested us - why not help Shemar show the Hollywood Powers that Be, that people want to see him in a movie and want these types of movies.

It is all about numbers, people and dollars. The more people who support it, the more likely a distributor will do a wide release. The more money raised, the closer to their ideal vision of the film can be made.

So head over and be counted at The Bounce Back on Indiegogo.

A Fannish Moment

Okay, this is so not like me, but I figured if I could do this anywhere it was here, since there would be no judgments. I have become totally hooked on Criminal Minds. Currently, some of the actors are running crowd sourcing campaigns' to fund "passion" projects. And, while even I know that a lot of fans / people are opposed to "talent" or celebrities using platforms like Kickstarter and Indiegogo and other crowd sourcing media to fund their passion projects; as a realist I understand that most people, regardless of their profession and abilities, are not always given an opportunity to branch out to that next level that they know they can do and want to try. My recent job hunting efforts have only solidified that belief. So, I figured, why not. The beauty of crowd sourcing is that it is built to work on small dollars and lots of people. Hell if the optiion had existed back in the day, season 6 of Highlander might have been a hell of a lot better (or at least Methos would have his own show).

Anyway, I am posting a link here to Shemar Moore's effort- a romantic comedy called The Bounce Back - if anyone is interested or is more social media aware and wants to help spread the word, I'm sure it would be appreciated.

For Kristen Vangsness and Joe Mantegna - a film Noir black and white 50's film which is almost completed and needs the funds for final editing and such.

And, thank you all for allowing me my fannish moment. Unfortunately, now I need to go back to the real world.

Question for my friends on Personof Interest.

First, yes I live. It is tax season but I am taking a break. Had routine medical screening today, so stomach cramping and I want to relax and shred paper and watch TV. But since I have no TV in room with shedder has to be on computer. Hence my problem.

I recently discoverd Person of Interest and really like it. However, it is not on demand, and CBS only has 1 full episode available for watching. HULA say no full episodes allowed becuase not legal.

Anyone know a safe place, that will not infect my PC, where I can watch the show?

Anyone liking this show?

Yellowstone National Park

I had a great time in Yellowstone with Ith and Nin. We saw 2 grizzly bears, 2 black bears, lots of elk and bison, a bald eagle, some pronghorn (antelope to us Easterners), and lots of sheep, cows, and horses on the drive to and fro. Some photo's below.

Happy New Year

Well, it seems I very rarely post here, but New Years is a must. So I wish everyone a happy, healthy and enjoyable 2011. May God shine down on you with nothing but joy, success and love. I know 2010 (and 2008 and 2009) has been rough for many, so as we begin the next decade may it be one where the "lessons" of the last few years sow benefits we can enjoy and share.


P.S. I saw Kings Speech. Good movie, I so love Colin Firth. But seriously, Harry Potter has ruined theater going for anything British. My mind kept going, - oh look, Dumbledore, oh, its Bellatrix, WTH is Pettigrew doing???? Thank God Colin was never in any of them. And yes, he deserves an Oscar, very understated performance, but not as subtle as his performance in A Single Man.

Oi! Wotch it, Martian boy! The Doctor thinks he can spout all kinds of ridiculous technobabble and 'Last Time Lord Angst' at you just because he's from outer space, huh? Well, you're not having any of it! You've got a heart of gold and a will of iron, and you're a rather boggling combination of a romantic idealist and a staunch realist. But you never let logical paradoxes get to you; you prefer to shoehorn the universe into a little box of your own perception. More often than not, it fits... probably because the universe is too intimidated to argue!

Colin and Sally Sparrow!

Okay, I actually feel like posting and about a fannish thing believe it or not. So, tonight I watched the Oscars - first time in like 15 years. I so wanted to see Colin Firth. That crush I had on him when I was young. So not over it!!!!. Anyway I watched the pre-show hoping to see him walk the carpet, but they did not show him, or at least the station I had on. But who did they show - Sally Sparrow! Yep, apparently young Carey Mulligan. And might I saw she was looking a hell of a lot like Ith when I first met her.

And, then Colin gets to intro Carey's film.

To bad he lost to Jeff Bridges. I actually saw both The Single Man and Crazy Heart. Not that Jeff's performance wasn't good, it is just Colin's performance was better - more nuanced and difficult. Lot of English accents and such which was good, the awards are going international.

Here is to more Sally Sparrow and Colin Firth.

Now, back to the taxes I totally ignored tonight.

Happy New Year

Well is is 2 minutes to the New Year! And, as I type this I am trying to figure out what if anytihng has changed from the last New Years post I wrote.

That one was looking forward to 2009 since 2008 was a real stinker. But folks, got to tell you 2009 did not live up to its hype (a common occurance during the year I tihnk), anyway, I will try to stay positive and hope that 2010 is much better. That all those facing tough times because of the economy and job loss, dealing with health issues and otherwise just a little down will find health, happiness and prosperity in 2010 and beyond.

Happy New Year

As I gladly send 2008 off into the past, I want to wish everyone a very Happy New Year! Let us hope that 2009 brings everyone nothing but good health, utter happiness and joy and good fortunes in life, love and work.

Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers during a rough 2008.

As for New Years Resolutions, I am only making one.

I am letting go of everything in the past. All the hurt, sadness, loss, anger, resentment, disappointment and malaise of the past.

To wit, I have spent the day - when not shoveling the snow we got here in Boston - shredding papers (except of source stuff I need to complete 2008 taxes) that cover everything from past job CYA files, to my grandparents care and records, past legal issues, jobs records, personal records, health records, travel information and finances. It is a real world attempt to symbolize my resolution of letting go and starting fresh.

So here is to starting 2009 with nothing. What comes, comes. What does not come, I will not miss.

So to 2009, I start it with no job and nothing owned. But also no debt and nothing owed. I am letting go of the past on all fronts. So I have no hurt, anger, resentment, sadness or fear. And, no expectations, promises or to do list.

2009 will be whatever it will be.

And God willing, it will be a year filled with hope, good surprises, good opportunities both personal and professional and most of all, full of good friends, like all of you.
