Jeff Smith61,376Welcome to The Selfie Sunday Project for April 5, 2015 We are back! First thing you may notice is "Selfy" has become "Selfie", just a change to keep up with the more recognized spelling of selfie. A general theme for this week is *New Beginnings* , it's Spring and Selfie Sunday has returned so it seems to fit. If you can't stick to the theme no worries either, since we are freshly back and running any selfie you take is fine.  Please read this post for the guidelines and FAQ for Selfie Sunday. http://goo.gl/SKnkZ8 Your photo can be taken from Mar. 30/15 before the event up until 8:00 AM EDT Monday Apr. 6/15. Older photos posted will be removed from the event. Please only post one photo to the event and that photo should ideally be taken the weekend or the week prior to the event. Again, please no dipping into the archives. As always have some fun. Everyone is looking forward to some great selfies. Any questions, We have many moderators in the Art of Self Portraiture Community who can help you along the way. _ UPLOADING The event will be open for uploading photos at 9:00 PM on the Saturday before. Click the Add Photos button in the event to upload your images. This is a Public event open to all.

Lotus Carroll1,771,689This is the Event for our March Self Portrait Challenge: Multiplicity. What this means is create a self portrait where you appear in the image multiple times (2 or more, your choice). Get creative and think up an interesting scene you can use this effect on and then make your image. Here is where you enter your ONE Multiplicity Self Portrait. Your photo must have been captured during this month. This Event remains open until 11:59 CST March 31st, so you have until then to create and enter your best photo from this month. (The dates on the Event are truncated, but you can submit a photo anytime, all month long.) Please read all rules (scroll down). Not adhering to rules will get you disqualified. *Tips & Inspiration* There are several different ways to go about achieving this effect. In camera, you can use a long exposure and move around. Alternately, you can use post processing to create multiples in an image. Photoshop is most widely considered in this type of editing, but other programs can also be used to achieve effect, such as Gimp. For those with no experience with creating "multiplicity" images with post processing, here are a few resources to help you get started: Photoshop Multiplicity Tutorial Videos: http://goo.gl/cyTpyZ Gimp Multiplicity Tutorial Videos: http://goo.gl/hChZ0Q Examples from Flickr: http://goo.gl/os2P65 Other Examples: http://goo.gl/DqlDtR Moderators of the Art of Self Portraiture Community are not eligible to win, but we will also be putting our photos into the Event in the hopes that you'll be inspired.

paula contreras10,424There are so many of us out here that have image issues and are our own worst critic.  I challenge you all to take a picture of a body part (and please keep it somewhat clean everyone) that you think is your best attribute.  Take a picture of your arms, hands, feet, knees, hips, etc. that make you feel beautiful.  If you think your whole body is beautiful that’s wonderful, just pick one part. I know you all are beautiful so get busy and shoot. You can do your shot in whatever style you want this is all about your depiction of your beauty, so try abstract, B&W, HDR, whatever tickles your fancy.  Mostly have fun and invite anyone you want.  Please add at your leisure up to the date and only one photograph please! Thank you @118149685580234696847  for so graciously letting me use your shots from last year for our banner.2nd Annual "You Are Beautiful"2015-02-22 04:00:00303

Lotus Carroll1,771,689This is the Event for our April Self Portrait Challenge: Personality! What is meant by this? It's time to show us some personality, baby. Capture a self portrait that conveys a lot of personality - an element of your true personality or some other one that you'd like to portray. When you submit your image, use the photo caption area to tell us what personality element you are portraying. Here is where you enter your ONE Self Portrait with a "Personality!" theme. Your photo must have been captured during this month. This Event remains open until 11:59 CST April 30th, so you have until then to create and enter your best photo from this month. (The dates on the Event are truncated, but you can submit a photo anytime, all month long.) Please read all rules (scroll down). Not adhering to rules will get you disqualified. *Inspiration* @111718830236077991058, one of our many talented moderators in The Art of Self Portraiture Community, wrote a great tutorial on shooting self portraits - check it out here: http://goo.gl/xaPva8 He is also the contributor of our theme photo on this event.

Megan McGuire2,739Get excited for the  G+ 2 year anniversary photowalk!. For the Sacramento photo walk we are starting outside of the Railroad museum located in Old Sac.

Gorka Ortiz63,862I'd like to invite you all to this brand new Photography Contest. The rules are simple, you are kindly suggested to upload up to 3 pictures of your own. The pictures must show yourself in a reflection. No matter whether your reflection is shown through a mirror, a window, some water on the road or any surface that can reflect yourself. There is no need to be recognized in your picture, you can reflect any part of your body. Try to find funny surfaces or elements where you can be reflected and just have fun taking part! ;-) Who will be the winners? Ok, trying to be fair no matter how many followers, plusses or shares you have and also taking into account your kind suggestions,  I have decided to invite 2 or 3 photographers from my circles who I think they produce quality pictures to help me judge the best works. The contest will end the 4th of November this year 2012. I will create a circle of winners with the 10 best photographers in this contest and I will share it in my stream. (Sorry, I know is not much but is better than nothing I guess and there's nothing else I can offer! ;-)  ). Of course I am opened to any suggestion from you all to make the contest as fair as possible. ;-) Finally, the most important thing... have fun and enjoy taking your pictures and sharing them with us! ;-) Cheers!Photography Contest - My Reflection - By Gorka Ortiz.2012-10-04 19:00:00133

Gailen Mapes84,567Hand Picked Photographers Circles - "Unknown or Other" Camera I-K - 22 of 27Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 200 members. These circles are photographers that I admire. They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity). Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to March 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting February 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag and sort by "recent."I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:   https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles   #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcirclesNote: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes .   Thanks for your cooperation.2015-03-22 12:36:07154000

They are split to not exceed 200 members. These circles are photographers that I admire. They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity). Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to February 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting January 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag and sort by "recent."I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:   https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles   #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcirclesNote: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes .   Thanks for your cooperation.2015-02-25 12:01:48148000

Anyone want some fresh baked bread?

There's nothing quite like the scent of baked bread in your house. I've been baking bread for about a year now, and I finally think I got the procedure down to a science. This loaf's about the size of a basketball and the slices on this sucker'll make a heck of a sammich!

The ladybugs have been deployed.
I repeat.
The ladybugs are away!

So we finally made it to the nursery... turns out Home Depot didn't carry bags of ladybugs in their stores, only online... and bought ourselves a $7 mesh bag of 1800 ladybugs. Refrigerated, they're dormant and just lay there so it looked like they were all dead. 

Oh no, as soon as we got 'em in the sunny parking lot... <Whoosh!> they started crawling around in the bag! The trick is to keep them dormant until nighttime, and then release them at night around the base of the plant where all your aphids are at. So I just got back in from pouring them out all over and around the base of our vincas. 

Tomorrow, when the sun comes out, they're supposed to "wake up" and start looking for food, so we'll see what happens!

The Toast

For as long as I can remember, I have revered the dynamic between a groom and his best man; the years of friendship, always being there and always having the other's back, culminated and defined in a single moment as one stands by the other's side watching him marry the woman of his dreams. And in that one moment after the best man's toast when everyone had their glasses raised and the subtle murmurs of friends and family resumed across the table, the groom and best man regard each other and say it without words one more time... "Thanks for always being there and I've always got your back."

Verdict: ☆ 1/2 _ _ _ _

Dracula rebooted! Why not. Everything else has been. Fear and horror surround history’s creepiest badass for centuries, spawning legends, stories and nightmares throughout all lands. But forget about all that! This is the Vlad you never knew, the Wallacian ruler we get to know from his wife and only son’s point of view. Who better than Luke Evans (Clash of the Titans, The Hobbit) to play that really good guy we know nothing about? Evans has that handsome face you can approach, the dashing next door neighbor with the Volvo and the Harley in the same garage. Here he looks like he just walked off the set of The Hobbit and was given the script for Dracula five minutes before the director yelled “…aaaand action!”

Verdict: ☆ 1/2 _ _ _ _

Dracula rebooted! Why not. Everything else has been. Fear and horror surround history’s creepiest badass for centuries, spawning legends, stories and nightmares throughout all lands. But forget about all that! This is the Vlad you never knew, the Wallacian ruler we get to know from his wife and only son’s point of view. Who better than Luke Evans (Clash of the Titans, The Hobbit) to play that really good guy we know nothing about? Evans has that handsome face you can approach, the dashing next door neighbor with the Volvo and the Harley in the same garage. Here he looks like he just walked off the set of The Hobbit and was given the script for Dracula five minutes before the director yelled “…aaaand action!”

Wait. No makeup? What about hair? He looks like he just walked out of Lake Town and into Wallachia. That’s okay, no worries. One thing that sets Dracula apart from The Hobbit is the fact that there are no battle scenes. Oh, there are armies! Don't get me wrong. The Turks attack Castle Dracula relentlessly. It’s just that Vlad has no army at all except for a few tough guys around him who stare solemnly at everything and hardly lift a sword.

Which is why Vlad decides to visit the creepy creature in a mountain nearby. Legend has it no one comes out of the creature’s cave alive. And that includes Turks, who have been seen entering the cave and not coming out. That’s good enough for Vlad! If it kills Turks, maybe he can figure out a way to use the creature. Unfortunately his plans go awry when the creature decides to use him! Bitten and becoming the Drac we all know and love to hate, Vlad then decimates the entire Turk army himself. It’s not even a contest.

Remember the scene in The Matrix Reloaded when Neo battled an army of Smiths? Yeah. Except it’s Vlad and an army of Turks. That scene alone almost made the price of a rental worth it. All in all though, the movie was pretty hum drum. This is the problem with having such cheap and readily available CGI. Instead of telling a story using CGI as a tool, CGI uses the story to advertise CGI. This movie is so chalk full of CGI from green screens to zillions of bats, it’s completely unrealistic. And no amount of CGI will help make a story deeper than it already is. The story in this CGI pool is desperately shallow, not much more than a wading pool. Sure, it’ll cool you off on a hot day, but you don’t get much exercise out of it.

Oh! Be sure to see the end of the review on Movie Madness for a final thought I couldn't post here!

My Weekend Quiet Time...
a story for bedtime
This was an old blog post of mine that I wrote in 2007. I have been going through the old files and decided this one was worth keeping. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did experiencing it!
========================================
This past weekend has been very quiet. Peaceful. Relaxing. Unlike last year around this time, when my wife and I got gussied up in our overalls and beer hats and attended the Monster Truck Rally at the State Fair! Yes, faithful readers and lovers of redneck etiquette, last year your hero, your friend, your redneck nerd whom you rely on for your daily pick me up and news that actually matters, kicked it on his Walmart bleacher cushion while watching monster trucks toss some serious dirt up!

My Weekend Quiet Time...

This was an old blog post of mine that I wrote in 2007. I have been going through the old files and decided this one was worth keeping. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did experiencing it!
========================================
This past weekend has been very quiet. Peaceful. Relaxing. Unlike last year around this time, when my wife and I got gussied up in our overalls and beer hats and attended the Monster Truck Rally at the State Fair! Yes, faithful readers and lovers of redneck etiquette, last year your hero, your friend, your redneck nerd whom you rely on for your daily pick me up and news that actually matters, kicked it on his Walmart bleacher cushion while watching monster trucks toss some serious dirt up!

[File tape of the incident: "AAAAAUGH! RRRRRMMMMM! RRRRMMM! CRUNCH-CRASH-SHATTER-BLBLBLBLBLBLB-RRRRRRMMMM! AAAAUGH!"]

Ah, I sit here now in my quiet study and puff on my pipe in thought, thinking back to last year, on that fateful Saturday night when my life was forever changed by the crunching of metal cars and the smell of burning brake fluid and oil. I sip of my brandy and put my feet up on my mahogany desk and dream of the raw, primal emotion deep inside, at that which awakens the redneck in all of us when I see something so powerful, with all those pipes and shock absorbers and chrome and bumperguards and sponsor decals.

I remember that my wife leapt up and shieked every time her favorite truck, "The Flatulator" ripped its way up to the line of junk cars and honored us by belching gaseous flame that smelt of brimstone and upset stomach bleedoff, then launched high into the air like a wild animal over a fence! Her throat was sore for a couple of days afterwards, but it was worth it! I think the driver of The Flatulator gave her a special wave for her adoration and honked his horn... which sounded oddly like the noise I make after a good bowl of Hormel Chili and a mason jar of Metamucil.

Fast forward to this year (2007)! Just this past weekend, my wife and I along with her Dad and Step Monster took our daughter and her slightly older cousins to the State Fair to ride on some of the cute li'l kid rides. Kiddo the Elder was juuuust barely tall enough for the 42" rides and so she begged to ride The Whipabout. That's the one that had the swings attached to a disk that spins so when in full bore, it flings the rider out sideways like a convict flicking his used cigarette butt out on the sidewalk. I got sick just looking at it (I don't handle rides well) but she begged for a second time around. And being smoothly operated, I let her. Three more tickets please, Mr. Kowing.

We had Jumbo Pizza and Barbeque Tri-tip Sandwiches and guzzled giant Cokes like cars drink today’s expensive gasoline. I tried to win my hunny a giant MTV plush logo that was really schnazzy looking and brilliant. It was red and white and would look perfect in our Coca-Cola styled kitchen.

Unfortunately, it was at the ring-toss game and it's a little known fact that I SUCK AT RING-TOSS. 40 rings for $2. That's a bargain, right? Maybe for some. I'm about as good at ring-toss as I am at the ol' prize claw at Walmart. But I had to be manly for my wife. After all, she was counting on me to win her a giant MTV logo with the fonky designs and fuzzy front.

I gave the first ring a li'l toss like a good boy, but it "dinged" off the glass Coke bottle and bounced away. I pursed my lips in thought and tried the second, third, tenth ring. By now, I'm starting to sweat. My wife is standing nearby, her eyes on a tall buff dude with blond hair, making every other ring fall onto the Coke bottles and casually tossing the big fuzzy MTV logos and teddy bears and giant frogs he won into a shopping cart behind him.

That's it. I start to aim carefully. Eleventh ring. Twelvth. Thirteenth. Dammit! Twentieth! That's half my rings. I got pissed off and started chucking them, and instead of bouncing away cutely, they ricocheted like bullets and pelted other patrons. I got to thirty rings and stopped, huffing angrily and looked over at the blond buff dude there, winning koala bears and giant turtles with oversized toes and Bart Simpsons dolls for his cute li'l girlfriend who had come back with a Costco sized flat-bed cart to carry them all away. And I couldn't explain what happened next. My anger just made me see red.

I looked at my rings, then at the Coke bottles, then at my beautiful wife who was looking at the blond buff dude. And I just bellowed a war cry...

…and the whole fair stopped.

The Ferris wheel halted in mid-turn, the games and plastic horse races silenced, and all there was, was me throwing the entire basket of remaining rings at the line of Coke bottles. One of the rings caught on the top of a bottle, which would have won me an MTV logo, but by then I had leaped the counter and started kicking all the bottles over, hollering at the top of my lungs. One of the workers there, whom one of my remaining rings caromed from a bottle and pegged him in the eye, decked me from behind. I recoiled and shoved him into the blond buff dude, who was still cheerfully winning goldfish and cows with stupid looks on their faces.

The blond buff dude in turn broke a nail and squealed, and his girlfriend got angry and punched a passerby for no reason. The passerby got pissed off and decked a mounted police officer's horse in the jaw. The police officer called in the S.W.A.T teams and riot police.

You might have seen the footage on the Six O'Clock News, and if you had, you'd have seen several police carrying out a red-headed, red-bearded maniac from the State Fairgrounds hollering, "I WANT MY MTV! I WANT MY [bleeping] MTV!"

It.
Ouuuut!

Painting done by +Shelly Kay's kiddo now selling as a $4 post card! I enjoy the color in this and might have to add this to my collection on my office wall!

Okay peeps, spread the word to #supportchildrensart  .
+Jason Kowing , I know you will share this for me. 
This is the painting he did this weekend. His first acrylic and I am hoping even if he sells a couple of note cards (that look great framed and are 4x6 for $4) he will feel good about it. 
Thank you so much for your support!

The ladybugs have been deployed.
I repeat.
The ladybugs are away!

So we finally made it to the nursery... turns out Home Depot didn't carry bags of ladybugs in their stores, only online... and bought ourselves a $7 mesh bag of 1800 ladybugs. Refrigerated, they're dormant and just lay there so it looked like they were all dead. 

Oh no, as soon as we got 'em in the sunny parking lot... <Whoosh!> they started crawling around in the bag! The trick is to keep them dormant until nighttime, and then release them at night around the base of the plant where all your aphids are at. So I just got back in from pouring them out all over and around the base of our vincas. 

Tomorrow, when the sun comes out, they're supposed to "wake up" and start looking for food, so we'll see what happens!

and the effect was too fast to bespeak!”

“He leapt up with a spark in his eye,
his pants bulging fiercely ‘long the thigh!
His arm swooping as able,
the cups flew from the table
and he ripped me clothes off all awry.”

“T’was a nightmare!” she tried to explain.
The doc asked, “Why? The sex that mundane?”
“No, the sex was the best!”
She replied in protest.
“But I can’t show me face’n Starbucks again!”

...and now for a little poetry for y'all.

The Flood

A flood so deep
is unexpected and strong.
A torrent which just cannot rest.

And the washing away
of our innermost walls,
might just be a disguise that is blessed.

For what is a flood
But a wave of damned fate,
a chance to be cleansed without bias?

Leaves a sparkling respect
for what we could not see,
when others have seen us as pious.

A flood of rainwater
or flood of emotion,
a flood of pain from insult,

Can bring us all quickly
to feeling quite prickly
and make us forget we’re adults!

So slow down there amigo.
Forget your glass ego.
There’s no sense in throwing wild fits.

For the flood that hath strained
your well guarded vain
might just have unshackled yourwit... more »

Anyone want some fresh baked bread?

There's nothing quite like the scent of baked bread in your house. I've been baking bread for about a year now, and I finally think I got the procedure down to a science. This loaf's about the size of a basketball and the slices on this sucker'll make a heck of a sammich!

Another Red Box Movie Review!
LUCY

Verdict: * * * 1/2 - -

Lucy (Scarlett Johansson) is a college kid who looks and acts smart, but loves to party and has a real creep for a boyfriend. Not just a creep who looks at other girls’ boobs, but the kind of creep who is a courier for extremely powerful drug lords and wears Stetson cowboy hats made in Taiwan. Yeah, that kind of creep.

Sorry, didn’t mean to throw that Stetson made in Taiwan thing at you. That may have been a little strong. Seriously though, he makes it a point to tell her his Stetson is made in Taiwan, so… he’s creepy.

Where was I? Oh yes.

Another Red Box Movie Review!
LUCY

Verdict: * * * 1/2 - -

Lucy (Scarlett Johansson) is a college kid who looks and acts smart, but loves to party and has a real creep for a boyfriend. Not just a creep who looks at other girls’ boobs, but the kind of creep who is a courier for extremely powerful drug lords and wears Stetson cowboy hats made in Taiwan. Yeah, that kind of creep.

Sorry, didn’t mean to throw that Stetson made in Taiwan thing at you. That may have been a little strong. Seriously though, he makes it a point to tell her his Stetson is made in Taiwan, so… he’s creepy.

Where was I? Oh yes.

Anyway, being creepy, he lures Lucy into delivering this particular shipment of drugs for him and we sit there for almost ten full minutes while they argue about it. All this time, the scene Lucy, her creepy boyfriend and his Stetson are chewing up are punctuated by scenes from the Serengeti with big cats stalking prey, as if the writer/director (Luc Besson, The Fifth Element, The Transporter) pretty much thought the audience would be entirely too stupid to see what was happening here. Lucy is being stalked by predators (her creepy boyfriend, his Stetson, and the powerful drug lord). Okay, we get that.

Then suddenly I start to see, as Lucy goes along with the drop off and the shizzle really hits the fan, what Luc Besson was trying to do. Much like The Fifth Element and practically everything else he’s ever done, he has injected a very sophisticated rhythm into the movie that creates a 3D perspective from a 2D screen.

Now, just so you know, there are no real spoilers in this review. Everything that happens in the movie, you’ve already seen from the trailer. You know what happens to Lucy. The deal goes south, they need her to deliver the baggie of a brand new synthetic drug to the United States and the only way to get it through customs is to sew it into her abdomen. Unfortunately, word of this didn’t reach a couple of thugs who work for the drug lord and one of them beats her up because she wouldn’t let him rape her. The baggie leaks inside her and WHOOSH! Off goes her brain into orbit towards Godlike power.

This is all inside the first half hour of the movie. After that, things really take off and you’re left pretty much breathless when the credits roll. There is a subtle philosophical idea that this movie is riding on, brought to you by Professor Norman (Morgan Freeman), that asks, “Are humans more concerned with ‘having’ than with ‘being’?” All throughout this movie, everyone wants something. Everyone is trying to get something. Bad guys want their drugs back. Cops want the bad guys. Everyone wants to shoot guns because guns make them feel powerful. Prof. Norman wants to know what Lucy knows but isn’t sure the human race is ready for that knowledge.

But is that such a bad thing that we’re more concerned with having than being? People are wrapped up in their own individual worlds, each world containing everything they think about and feel emotionally, and yet they never do see beyond that world. We cannot (at this time) walk in another man’s shoes, so to speak. All the while Lucy ascends beyond quantum physics and sees all these individual worlds as One World moving in an infinity of different directions, all measured by time. As she sees them, she can control them and she basically spends 24 hours ascending from human to “beyond” as her brain capacity is gradually activated more and more.

Lucy is an idea about ascending to the next level of evolution… really fast. What would actually happen if we expand our minds and open up our worlds? Will this happen eventually? Could we, as limited consciousness individuals, really see that we are each One with All? Could we see beyond the labels and illusion and see that we simply… are?

With action and philosophy combined, Luc Besson brings what I would consider a beautifully done piece of art to a world in which it would be most attractive. He blends action and violence with thought and by the time the credits roll, you’re both wired and deeply composed at the same time! I think this flick would have been better done with a much younger lead actress, however. ScarJo is awesome, but a little old to be the naive party “kid” she was supposed to playing. That said, I thought this one was really well done!

So my friend +Meirav M. tagged me upside the head with this interesting meme called #123Challenge  started by +Jacob Dix, where you take a shot of something... next day you take a shot of two of those somethings (same type of something)... next day you take a shot of three of those somethings.

And we ain't talkin' shots of whiskey! 

So in honor of +Meirav M. who appears to be doing her challenge with lights of some sort, I thought I'd follow suit and accept the challenge with lights as well, since they're quite difficult to get right for me.

Updates on Casey Nocket, the National Parks Vandalist! See article below. This woman has been defacing national parks for a long time now, posting it happily on her Instagram and Tumblr pages as if she were doing the world a service with her "art". Finally, the authorities are investigating. Unfortunately, it's apparently not easy to bring charges against someone doing these crimes, even though the evidence couldn't be more clear. (sighs) But they're getting somewhere.

Hope the appropriate authorities track this woman down.

Another Red Box Movie Review!
How To Train Your Dragon 2

Verdict: * * * * -

When I first watched HTTYD, I thought at first it was just another goofy animated movie. I mean, c’mon… a scrawny kid with a nasaly, Canadian accent the son of a mighty viking chief? But as the movie played on, I started really enjoying it. The movie didn’t take itself seriously, and even the nasaly Canadian kid made fun of his own character. I liked the sequences, the way the story unfolded, the tension of the dragons and the struggles of man verses beast in almost every fashion. The action was incredible and the humor had me laughing out loud.

When I first heard that HTTYD2 was coming out, I cringed because I thought it was just another goofy animated sequel that Walmart would have in its $5 bin in six months, sitting right next to Fern Gully 2; A Financial Rescue Attempt. But asthis ... more »

Another Red Box Movie Review!
How To Train Your Dragon 2

Verdict: * * * * -

When I first watched HTTYD, I thought at first it was just another goofy animated movie. I mean, c’mon… a scrawny kid with a nasaly, Canadian accent the son of a mighty viking chief? But as the movie played on, I started really enjoying it. The movie didn’t take itself seriously, and even the nasaly Canadian kid made fun of his own character. I liked the sequences, the way the story unfolded, the tension of the dragons and the struggles of man verses beast in almost every fashion. The action was incredible and the humor had me laughing out loud.

When I first heard that HTTYD2 was coming out, I cringed because I thought it was just another goofy animated sequel that Walmart would have in its $5 bin in six months, sitting right next to Fern Gully 2; A Financial Rescue Attempt. But as this movie played on, I ascended from liking the characters to truly fall in love with them!

Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) and Astrid (America Ferrera) are coming into their own and Chief Stoic (Gerard Butler), along with his right hand man Gobber (Craig Ferguson), is trying to train his son how to be the next chief of the vikings in Berk. But Hiccup was never one to go along with rules and as he and Astrid stumble across an enormous dragon army controlled by the fearsome, mysterious man Drago, it opens up a whole new world of dragon-wrangling for our young hero.

I won’t give much more away, suffice it to say that comparing the first HTTYD to its sequel is like comparing a bottle of Budweiser to an entire twenty four pack of Budweiser! The bottle of Bud will do ya in a pinch and tastes great (less filling!) but the suitcase will bring your friends to the party and everyone will enjoy themselves so much more!

I do realize that describing children’s animated movies with melodramatic alcohol references may not win me over at my daughter’s school or get me invited to community little league games. I’m sure I’ll deal with that while I’m hanging out with friends drinking a suitcase and watching this movie again. But for now, I just added HTTYD2 to my Amazon wish list and tagged it as the highest priority!

If you liked the first movie, you’ll love the second movie! I don’t consider it a sequel at all, really… but a second part to one big story. Apart, they’re wonderfully done little adventures, but together, they make for one beautiful, fulfilling epic that you’ll walk away from with your fists in the air going “Yeah!”

My beloved...

We're having Valentine's Lunch at the Elephant Bar. Right now she's thinking about ordering a Raspberry Mango Smoothie to start things off, as you can see by the look on her face!
