The 5x5 Challenge

I'm stealing another challenge idea from Vimeo.  And I quote:

"A 5x5 is a classic Vimeo video project. It's a 25-second video composed of five 5-second clips, using only natural sound. 

The challenge here is to find beauty in the mundane. Your day-to-day might seem boring to you, but I can assure you there is beauty in it — in your breakfast routine, commute to work, 8am biology class, lunch hour, trip to…

Horrors!

I removed all my dating series videos yesterday from this site and from Vimeo!  I was helping a client set up her new MacBook and googled myself and was HORRIFIED to see this site and the videos listed there!  Although the videos themselves were password protected, the comments were all still there for the world to see.  Now I know the more savvy of you out there will read this and go, "DUH," but wow...what a shock for me!

 

Anyway...Happy Halloween :-)  That's my horror…

Meet Steve...the new man in my life :-)

My friend Rik and I went to the dog pound and came home with Steve.  He's a 5-yr old Corgi/Papillon mix and perfect in every way!  Rik is also my neighbor and will come doggy-sit if I'm not home.

 

Topanga is very dog-friendly and I can bring him to work with me most days.  He curls up and sleeps at my feet while I work.  I got so lucky!  He's been here since…

Hate for hate?

‎"I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy. Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that."
--Martin Luther King, Jr.

I'm so Excited!

This is my friend, Eliza.

She's one of my clients. I'm going to Hong Kong, then Cebu Island in the Philippines to visit her in January.

I'm uber excited :-)

I sense much vlogging in my future....

Windows XP

I need it. With a key code.



I had to get a new MacBook after I dumped a big glass of wine on my old trusty black MacBook. Then I bought this cool contraption that converts VHS to digital and straight onto the computer. I have boxes and boxes of precious VHS tapes and it would cost me a fortune to have someone else do it so I was very excited about this.



So it arrived, and I tore it open to find that it works only with Windows. So I went to the Mac Mall and had them install… Continue

Michael's Video "Whispers"

I just wanted to make sure you realize what a gem we have on the front page here!

If you scroll down the blog posts, you'll see Jinboy's poem of the same name. Michael adapted it into a music video and his interpretation is really brilliant.

Don't miss it, as he intends to take it down tomorrow.

Stealing a Vimeo Idea

Here's you a challenge: Exactly one minute...no more, no less...no editing...no music...just capture a minute of your life.

I think they actually have more rules, but this will do for here, right?

I miss you guys!

You all must be having an activity-filled summer!

Doing My Part to Clean Up the Oil!

I couldn't figure out how to upload this here, so here is the link.

Sometimes the simplest ideas are the best.

I'm hoping someone who matters will see this and get the ball rolling. Like today.

Video Olympics

Where is the list? Maybe I'm a dummy (actually, no maybe about it...), but I can't find the challenge list. Help!

Broad Humor Film Festival

Hey funny ladies!



Here's a film festival that has great potential. I covered it last year for my local paper. The thought that continually ran through my head was, "the women of the Ark are way more funny than this!" And you are! Please have a look and submit something!!



They had some good workshops on writing, filming, lighting, etc., as well.



All you have to do then is get to LA...you can stay with me!…

Too Early in the Morning!!

I have my 3 sites I click into first thing in the morning...the Ark among them. This morning, although it looked similar, I couldn't find anything!

I guess I need more coffee....

I don't do forwards, but.....

This did make me laugh a little :-)



A store that sells new husbands has opened in New York City , where a woman may go to choose a husband. Among the instructions at the entrance is a description of how the store operates:



You may visit this store ONLY ONCE! There are six floors and the value of the products increase as the shopper ascends the flights. The shopper may choose any item from a particular floor, or may choose to go up to the next floor, but you cannot go back… Continue

I got a rescue dog :-)

Our application was accepted months ago. We're partial to German Shepherds, so I've been checking the German Shepherd Rescue website every day--not really sure what I was looking for.



Until yesterday. I saw the new photo and knew she was "the one." I was first in line at 11:00 when they opened. Soon 2-year old Lola and I were cruising down I-10. She was curled up sound asleep in the back within moments.



We brought her home, cleaned her up and introduced her to the other… Continue

I'm Technically Challenged and Need Help!

I always play the "Day You Were Born" video for my kids on their birthday, which is tomorrow (their 14th), and we laugh about what screamers they were, how unrecognizable I was, and we all go "Awwwwwwww" when the scenes of 4-yr old Eric holding them and expertly feeding them a bottle and/or locating the pacifier flash on the screen.



Yes, I had them when I was 12 :-)



It's on one of those full-size VHS cassettes and I keep a VCR solely for the purpose of watching this annual… Continue

Funny Women....

I wanted to vlog this, but since I am unemployed and can no longer be bothered to dress or bathe regularly, I thought it best to not show my face on camera.



As I mentioned in my last vlog, I write for my local newspaper. I ran across an interesting event and requested the assignment.



It was a film festival in Venice, CA called "Broad Humor"--comedy films completely written, directed and produced by women. With my press pass, I got free access to the entire weekend's… Continue

Check this out.....

Actually, I've been saying this all along. But it doesn't stop me from pulling my computer out every time my butt hits a chair. I often think about the ramifications of all this "online-ness" on my kids. When I was their age, a computer at home was so space age! Offices didn't even have them. (I'm giving away my age here!!)



We are a four-computer family. Three of us live… Continue

So I guess.....

that someone will post my birthday collab video tomorrow since it didn't go up on my actual birthday :-)

Seriously. I'm now officially waaaaaay closer to 50 than 40 now. I don't think I like this very much!

RE: FHP's Question: What are your reasons for leaving your LV Channel Up?

As I was typing my lengthy comment justifying the reasons why I kept my channel open on the now porn-infested LV, I realized that there is no justification. I'm not an artist or anything like that; however, my channel contains mostly family videos and prominently features my children.



All of the reasons people are giving for keeping their channels open are absolutely valid and I agree with many of them. But truth be told, I never really got over the group sex scene that greeted my… Continue
