something to think about

I'll be honest.  Lately, I've been in a bit of a creative rut. There was a glimmer of hope with a possible performance piece with a couple of friends, but it looks like that's been put on hold indefinitely.

I'm in a very pro-active mood lately. And so the wheels in my head have been turning to figure out what might be the next project.  A wonderful phone call with my guitar teacher/friend makes me quite hopeful.

More later.

song for the evening

Simple. Good cover. Great harmonies. And a ukelele.  You can't beat that.

shades of blue and green for a little princess

Just finished the decorations on Hannah's basket.  I had a little trouble at first because I had so many different shades of blue and they all didn't seem to combine very well.  After a couple of tries, I came up with this combination.  I'm waffling with adding a couple of blue and green peacock feathers.  I think it might be a bit too over the top with them.

Just cause she makes me want to dance.

song for the evening

My husband's goddaughter is currently in a production of You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown this summer.  This is my favorite song from the show.

Is Film School for Chumps? The Indie Film Community Talks Back to Monday's NYT Article - indieWIRE

Is Film School for Chumps? The Indie Film Community Talks Back to Monday's NYT Article - indieWIRE

An interesting read. I personally like this quote:

Jonathan Caouette, Director (“Tarnation,” “Walk Away Renee”)
My gosh, this is a weird one for me to answer, because I actually never went to film school at all, ever, although I desired it greatly. I have no experience with film school, nor have I made films in any kind of traditional way or form. I was a video store and movie-going dweeb who was and is still addicted to cinema. Everything I have personally made has been very way-the-hell-outside of any traditional moviemaking boxes, so I cannot really comment [on the value of film school].
(I might be crucified for saying this) but I have to sometimes agree (this could be debatable on a case by case basis), but I do sometimes agree with the old adage, don’t go to film school; just use your money to make a film. On the other hand, I think there are some people that could benefit from it. With the onslaught of new media, and all the competition with that coming at you at machine-gun speed, the film world is like a postmodern Wild West. As Gus Van Sant once said, “There should be no more excuses;” if you want to make a film, make a film. Everything we need to do it is there. As long as you have a good story to tell, and you better have a good story (ha ha…everyone can make a cool-looking film now), your story and what you are doing with it should shine.

More musical inspiration from Stephen Sondheim - Into The Woods

Need a crown for a little girl?  Get yourself a cheapie headband from the dollar store ( I do love my dollar stores), some acrylic gemstones and a hot glue gun - and look at what you can do!

(The back isn't pretty, but the front piece isn't that bad!)  I hope Hannah and her aunt like it.
