And The Most Important Film....

...of the last ten years is :

"God Bless America" by Bobcat Goldthwait

And all the bonus features are good too.

It will forevermore be a holiday tradition in our home alongside "A Charlie Brown Christmas".

Had to Share

These were some of my favorites from the Vimeo Weekend Challenge to make an opening scene of a movie 1 minute or under incorporating the phrase " Toll Road to Consciousness" :

Oh Quentin, You Silly Inglourious Bastard

We finally got around to seeing Django Unchained last night as it finally made it to our local library,

which made me want to watch THIS ten more times in a row :

Skeptical Dream

 In the dream I walked through a sun-dappled cobblestone street which was lined with old abandoned churches. They were not like the clapboard construction of the latter centuries U.S. churches. They were of old European design. Beautiful, solid,soaring and majestic. I was there with many friends. We came to inhabit these grand, empty houses.

We were all so pleased because these buildings were built to last 500 years. 

We had found lasting…

Great in fresh OR saltwater. WOW !

I recommend the small ones. Gravity and time are kinder to them.

Star Trek Into Darkness

I don't care what anybody says. I loved it.

.....and I'm looking forward to a sequel where they go back in time to stop Benedict Cumberbatch's character while he was young (played by Charlie McDermott from "The Middle")  to avoid the future disastrous results of the shenanigans he would visit on the world.

Food for the Gods

By all accounts the birds appear to enjoy my company. They say please and thank you

and take turns at bravery by hopping up to me as close as they dare before their fragile

frames begin to quake with awesome fear of the closeness. The closeness of this mountain…

Split a Ho Ho and I am There...

Weep not for Twinkie's passing, for he has been lifted up on high. 

He had to be sacrificed so that we could be redeemed of our gluttony.

We will remember him by eating miniature May Wests (made in Canada) and drinking

directly from the Reddi Wip can.

The Holy House of Hostess so loved the earth that he was willing to sacrifice his only son

for fun.

The Twinkie will always be a part of us especially in the subcutaneous fat regions of our…

Morphed Challenge

I originally started what I called The Encapsulate Challenge where you were supposed to use 10 seconds or less of video and one title to succinctly express a word, phrase, saying, cliche', whatever.... as a way to create an archive of emotivids, sorta like emoticons accept in video form. I was daydreaming about the old LiveVideo days and

thinking how cool it would have been to have a library of member created emotivids to leave as comments to videos.

examples :…

Prometheus- My Thoughts

Prometheus  Directed by Ridley Scott Written by Jon Spaihts and Damon Lindelof

WARNING :  SPOILERS

 I don't care what anyone says, I thought Prometheus KICKED ASS and I will see it 42 more times in a row as soon as it comes out on DVD. Here's where I'd like to see it go in the next two sequels to the prequel, preferably with Ridley directing again :

 Prometheus leaves us with the question of why the race of giants who sacrificed one of their own to seed our…

CHIG !!!

...QUIT tryin' to make me pop staples. The docs don't want that to happen for at least another 2 weeks....so they told me to re-visit your comments at that time and not before....anything to make their jobs easier, eh?

Syd, I just knew a busload full of nuts was the perfect reminder of us and as a bonus, we thought the driver even looked a bit like you.

My first day home was wonderful. I slept a solid 4 hours the first night.

Unfortunately I hadn't read…

Geeze, I'm gone for a Week and I Don't Recognize the Place

Does Syd still live here ?

How much do I love you guys?

Way.

That's right, that much.

My teeth taste like shit in my mouth, 3/4 of my hair fell out (no lie) and I'm sporting a good 46 inches of staple tracks but somehow I feel better than I have in years. I have ankles!!! There's so much weird little shit that I had no idea was related to my Polycystic Liver that I'm noticing now.

They tell me I'm cured. How about that ?!

Okay, I'm over doing…

How Long has Jobs Been Dead ?

ARRrrrgh.

It finally happened. Our once highly revered Mac has died. It didn't just get sick. It Keeled over before we could recover anything. Hard drive nose-dive. Caput. Dead. Zilch.

I am so very glad that I followed my intuition when we purchased it over 2 years ago and bought the extended 3 year warranty. The warranty that came with it was good for 2 years. How cute. You can expect yours to die just a couple of weeks out of warranty,..caPOOey. Have a nice day.

Incidentally, I'm on itunes

"Incidental Things" is now on itunes as a single.

If you're interested you'll have to access from my Tunecore page here:

http://www.tunecore.com/music/amyhamann

(or see below)

I'm still planning on finishing my album as soon as I get my lungs back.

 

When the song goes live next week (which apparently came early) I'll be re-embedding the video for it here and hoping Syd doesn't ban me.
