Filmsy Excuse

Didn't accomplish much domestically today, because Wednesday is Creative Day. I got some writing done and we started on a silly Biology film to complement the new course, which arrived a couple of days ago. (YAY!)

Mollusc and I scripted and storyboarded the first segment and then I shot it.
MuNKi is sucking it into the computer for us, and loading Adobe Whatsit onto one of the non-dungeon computers so we can tinker with it.

While you wait for that gem, you can enjoy this!
Oh, and please go vote at the Word Game. :)

Candace said...

GIRL!!! You RAWK! Woo hoo!!! When do I get my complimentary copy? ^_^

Trade ya some piccys of the chilluns for one. . . ;)

Oh CRAP! I was going to do the Isabella promo write-up for Lowena today. OK, there's still time. . . :) Bug me until I tell you I'm done, eh?

OMG, I just realised - you're done with BOTH albums!!! Does this mean I'll get to speak to you again? ^_^

Seeleah: My mother's name is Celia.

Candace: Was Roddy McDowell in that clip? Two things rip my sides off with laughter: Monty Python and Mr. Fabulous. You, on the other hand, rip my face off and some of my toes. Don't quite exactly know why that is, but those are the parts to go when you so crack me up.

Well, like the barber says: Take hair, now.

Gawpo said...

Also, that cheap advertising trick of your sister's (that WAS you sister, right?) worked. I will go get me a GAD ablum. Yeah, I said ablum.

egan said...

Um, are you deleting my comments? This is my third attempt to comment on the post today.

Candace said...

Here? On this post? I dinna get any emails about comments from you except for the previous post.I would never delete your comments. Unless you asked me to. And even then, probably not. ^_^

Candace said...

Gawpo - I was so shocked by Egan's assertion that I failed to respond to your Ripped and Torn (I don't think it was Roddy, was it Rip Torn?) visage. Is Roddy McDowel/Dowall a pun? Sure sounds like it.

Why did they call the leper hockey game?

Face off in the corner. :-P

Yay! You will lurve the GaD albumen. I think it's all it's cracked up to be and more, no yolk. It's the nest best thing after -- wait, is this a family show?

ARM said...

I freaking love that vid!!! Oh, and I'm going to vote at the word game now.

Ham and jam and spam a lot! That extraterrestrial band's costumes seem to be mostly silk scarves. Do they do parties?

Did you know that Rip Torn was married to Geraldine Page? The mailbox on their apartment in NY was labeled Torn/Page. I kid you not.

ldbug said...

How fun! I love science projects:-)

The link (assuming a YouTube) isn't up for me...I'll try later!

Candace said...

Amanda - Is that not the best? There are a whole slew of different Star Trek/Monty P mash-ups.:)

Joe - Filmy, aren't they? ^_^

Are you serious about the Torn/Page thing? I'm going to have to Google it now, you know. I'm way too gullible. :-P

Ldbug - We're having a lot of fun with it. :) Hopefully this will help everything stick in their brains a little better.

egan said...

Pick me, pick me, choisissez-moi!

somewhere joe said...

Google do. It's all too true.

Candace said...

Egan - OK, I choose you. What have I chosen you to do? Oh, Word Game? Too late, I already voted. :-P

Joe - I have to thank you, because without a reason to Google Rip Torn, I'd never have learned this fascinating tidbit (from Wikipedia):

"During the 1970 film "Maidstone", Torn got into an improvised fight with the director and star of the film Norman Mailer. As the camera rolled, Torn struck Mailer in the head with a hammer, intending to "kill his character." Mailer's scalp opened up, and a vicious fight ensued. With the camera still rolling, Torn energetically strangled Mailer until the fight was broken up by Mailer's wife Barbara and Mailer's wailing children. During the melee, Mailer bit off a small chunk of Rip Torn's ear. The fight, in which the actors called each other by their real names, made it into the film, and the segment has proven very popular on the Internet in recent years."

Rip Torn has been Ripped and Torn. How appropos. ^_^

somewhere joe said...

That's when they paged Geraldine.

Candace said...

Oh GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaannnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn!!!

I ♥ you for that. ^_^


Some poeple might throw the book at someone for a pun like that. But not me. People who don't appreciate puns just don't have the spine for them.

Blue the Spa Girl said...

Be still my beating heart, I love Captain Kirk in that Gladiator outfit.
Too funny...

somewhere joe said...

book, spine...? Haw! I'm So Bemused Now!

Candace said...

Blue - What's not to love, eh? He's the man that first made my sister's heart go pitty pat. ^_^

Joe - ISBN! Impressive. But you are not a Jedi yet. OK, maybe after that one you are. Yes. It's a fitting title. ^_^

somewhere joe said...

Not worth I am. Please ignore my vulgar display of accumen. I seek the honor not.


heh heh

cindra said...

Oooooooooh, I can't wait for the flick to come out!

I got your cool postcard yesterday...Valentine's Day...you are sweet! Thanks. I loved finding that in my box. Mailbox. And the joke...HA! You are the reigning queen of corn! Love it. XO

Candace said...

Joe - Funny duck. Perhaps turn to the dark side you should. ^_^

Cindra - Me too. :) I like how you qualified that. Mailbox. ^_^

cindra said...

I thought you might ;)

Gawpo said...

Hey! People don't just go around tossing puns out into the blogosphere without 'ole Gawpeaux finally getting around to participating. That one about the book is funny, Candace. I'm sure you realized that, when I did finally show up, I was bound to say something about it. And Joe's pun got him into the Jedi fold. His little heh heh link was great. I love Rip Torn in Defending Your Life.
