A Day In The Life Of A Blade Of Grass Friday, August 21, 2009

So, this is the film my brilliant and funny 12 year old entered in a local film contest.  It was the first film he has ever done.  He did pretty much everything by himself, except Allen did what little editing was needed and recorded the music.  Yep.  Everything else was all Zane.   He didn’t win any awards but, there is always next year and the year after and the year after and the year after….


What I’m Accidentally Watching Tuesday, June 2, 2009

Okay, I admit it, I turned to NBC last night and, expecting Chuck, because I don’t always pay attention to what is supposed to be on, discovered the show Get Me Out of Here I’m a Celebrity.  I vaguely remember seeing the commercials and thinking how there was no way I would watch the show.  Whoops, I was wrong.  So, I maybe, sorta, accidentally watched the whole two hours last night.  It was great.  I didn’t MEAN to like it.  I didn’t expect to like it.  It was the funniest thing I have seen on t.v. in some time.  It was like Survivor but, with people who you vaguely remember from somewhere, and funny.  Did I mention it was funny? Yeah, it was.  Maybe that is what other reality shows have been missing.  All the celebrities are trying to win money for a charity of their choice.  There are obviously some people who I think are great right off the bat.  Like Frangela, a comedy duo I had never heard of consisting of two women named Frannie and Angela.  They found humor in everything and had great common sense advice.  Like ignoring people who act like kids and throw temper tantrums even if they are adults.  And, the people who I think are total and complete morons, like Spencer Bratt (No, that is NOT a typo.) and his puppet, I mean, wife.    I think it was the phrase about him and Heidi picking a couple of the biggest charities so that if or when they left and their charities didn’t get the money, it would be no big deal, that made me ALMOST change the channel.  Talk about self absorbed.  Wow.   It is a good thing those two keep telling the freaking camera how they recently became saved and saying crap like “Praise Jesus” or other similar phrases or we sure as hell (no pun intended) wouldn’t have a clue.  I read an article on Yahoo saying how it was horrible and had a bad viewing, ect., ect.   I think they were a little harsh.  I do see where it may not be able to hold my attention during a regular season when I have my “regular” shows to watch.  But, right now, everything is reruns and nature documentaries  I have seen before, or this show.  So, it looks like I MIGHT possibly be watching it.  I mean, I already accidentally watched the first show, so I might as well keep watching just to see what happens.  Like, who develops malaria first.  For more info about the show, like who all is on it ( I think it has an interesting diversity of celebrities.) and what all happened, check them out at nbc.com.

UPDATE: So, I watched, maybe one more episode before my schedule got too busy for it.  So, yeah, I don’t know what happened.  And, I don’t regret missing it or anything.  Ah, well, easy come, easy go.  Summer is here, I don’t have time for schedules anyway.

Zombie Prom Monday, October 20, 2008

So, as some of you may know, Allen and I were in a Zombie Prom commercial for the upcoming Prom at House of Rock.  It is a youtube video for anyone’s entertainment.  SO, I am able to link to it from here.  We had never dressed like zombies before so, this was a new experience for us.  Allen did the music for the commercial on his theremin.  He will also be playing the theremin at the prom.  To find out what a theremin is, click here. ANYWAY, without further ado, the commercial…


Silly Church Sign Monday, August 11, 2008

So, Allen and I were driving home from a nice Sunday brunch at Catfish Charlie’s (Who knew gumbo and fried shrimp make such a good breakfast?) when we passed this church with this sign. Do you think they even realize? Allen and I both had a really good laugh over it.

I’m a Star! Thursday, July 31, 2008

You are The Star

Hope, expectation, Bright promises.

The Star is one of the great cards of faith, dreams realised

The Star is a card that looks to the future. It does not predict any immediate or powerful change, but it does predict hope and healing. This card suggests clarity of vision, spiritual insight. And, most importantly, that unexpected help will be coming, with water to quench your thirst, with a guiding light to the future. They might say you’re a dreamer, but you’re not the only one.

What Tarot Card are You?

Wall-E Wednesday, July 9, 2008

Wall-e was the most adorable cartoon character ever.  The whole movie was great.  It had a great message that I will not even hint at for those of you who haven’t seen it yet.  It led to a nice discussion after the movie.  The pre-cartoon cartoon, that Pixar always throws in, was hilarious.  I was laughing so hard.  I love magic and bunny rabbits (that I do not have to take care of).  I think every film should have a short cartoon at the beginning.  At least, any film I go see.  We knew Jaxon loved it because he didn’t have to go to the bathroom even once while it was on.  Whenever he is bored, he decides an expedition to the bathroom will cure him of the boredom.  Anyway, so if you haven’t seen this movie, go see it.  I recommend it.
