Bedtime Monsters

 

An Alternate Universe

“There’s a monster neath my bed
Just go and have a look
There’s a monster neath my bed
Reading my favorite book

He’s creepy and he’s ugly and
He’s got a million eyes
He waits for me to fall asleep
Then he’ll eat me alive

There’s a monster neath my bed
Believe me when I say
So just please go and have a look
And make it go away”

And so I went and had a look
Though I did not suspect
It seemed as if that boy of mine
Was very near correct

For though a monster sitting there
Was just what did appear
He was kind of pathetic as
His body shook with fear

I said “You are a scary thing
A horrid evil sight
Shouldn’t it be me not you
Who shakes with dread and fright?”

His million eyes did look at me
And he let out a yelp
And then he sidled up to me
And said “I need your help

They said no harm would come to me
I’ve clearly been misled
Cause don’t look now but there’s a boy
On top of my bed.”

Director Cindy MaplesRandom represents indie sensation, Cindy Maple's directorial debut. The film was written by Cindy and wisely places her in a starring role beside her real life hubby Rusty James.

Graphically powerful and erotically romantic, this touching film offers the viewer a delightfully voyeuristic glimpse into this pivotal night of life and love for the unquestionably happy couple. Cindy Maples brings to the screen a side of herself that this reviewer will not soon forget while Mina Fedora's original score sets the mood and caries us solidly through to the final fade.

A truly impressive 7 minute short that showcases the talents of all involved in a polished work that will no doubt serve as first-rate resume enhancements for the creative, technical, cinematic and production personnel. Carriage House Productions and Cindy Maples prove once again that they are in it to win it.

Bitchkoemer and Friends Go to Fano

25ste Internationaal Vlieger FestivalThe Dig project continues slowly but surely. Collecting the various bookmarks for the alphabetical highlight pages is a lot of fun but I especially  enjoy uncovering something that demands to be shared in the form of a post. The website I am sharing here is a Dutch language tribute to the 2009 Fanoe Kite Festival and features the adventures of three daring Belgian thrill seekers. 

You should probably brush-up on your Dutch or fire-up the translator before visiting their website but you are sure to enjoy the video below (created by Michel "Bitchkoemer" De Meester) which clearly speaks the universal language of friendship and fun!

Kite Buggy

DenmarkEen weekje Fano 2008
A week of Fano 2008
        from Michel De Meester

Eind juni 2008 trokken we met de motorhome een weekje naar Fano.
In late June 2008, we went with the motor home for a week to Fanoe.

Uitsluitend om te buggiën en een beetje te genieten van het vliegerfestival.
Mostly for buggying and a bit to enjoy the kite festival.

Hier ziet u een korte samenvatting van onze "uitspattingen" aldaar.
Here is a brief summary of our "excesses" there.

Groetjes
Greetings

Bitchkoemer (B1084)

 

 The Video: https://vimeo.com/1564977

 

Wie zijn wij?
Who are we?

Soms noemen we ons "Tree of a Kite", een woordspeling van de bekende poker term "Three of a Kind".
Sometimes we call ourselves "Tree of a Kite," a pun of the famous poker term "Three of a Kind."


We zijn inderdaad "Three of a Kind", we zijn met drie, we kennen elkaar al jaren en hebben samen al heel wat woelige watertjes doorzwommen, kortom drie goede vrienden, ieder met een eigen persoonlijkheid maar door onze vriendschap zijn we, net als broers, meestal wel in elkaars buurt te vinden.
We are indeed "Three of a Kind", we are three, we've known each other for years and have been together for quite some turbulent lessons learned. In short, three good friends, each with their own personality but through our friendship we, as brothers, are typically found together.


"Tree" verwijst enerzijds naar "drie" , maar ook naar het dorp waar we alle drie wonen: "Boom" (tussen Antwerpen en Brussel), "Kite" spreekt voor zich, we zijn alle drie met de vliegersport bezig.
"Tree" on the one hand refers to "three", but also to the village where we all three live: "Boom" (between Antwerp and Brussels) [boom means "tree"], "Kite" Obviously, we are all involved with the sport kite.


Michel De Meester
De oudste (en dus ook de slimste :-)
The oldest (and therefore the smartest :-)

Michel De Meester, in de vliegerwereld beter bekend als Bitchkoemer (B1084), houdt zich voornamelijk bezig met buggiën, maar ook af en toe een éénlijnertje onder de naaimachine duwen lukt hem wel.
Michel De Meester, in the kite world known as Bitchkoemer (B1084) mainly engages in buggying, but also occasionally pushing a tow-kite through a sewing machine with successful results. [?]


Rudy Belis
De middelste
The middle
 

Rudy Belis, de buggy collega's kennen hem als FamGaga (B1158), hij rijdt ondertussen iets meer dan een jaartje en begint zich aardig uit de slag te trekken in zijn karreke.
Rudy Belis, the buggy colleagues know him as FamGaga (B1158), meanwhile he runs a little over a year and begins to withdraw from the battle in his nice karreke. [?]



Peter Bastaens
De jongste (en ook de lelijkste)
The youngest (and the ugliest)

Peter Bastaens AKA Viper, zal af en toe wel enkele rakjes rijden maar houdt zich voornamelijk bezig met onze technische ondersteuning, ook de catering valt meestal onder zijn bevoegdheid (lees pintjes halen voor de rijders :-)
Peter Bastaens AKA Viper, will occasionally do some buggy driving but is mainly concerned with technical support, also catering usually falls under its jurisdiction (read: fetch beers for the drivers :-) [?]


Do you feel called to participate in the organization?
Do you feel called to sponsor us with "beverage and food?"

...please do not hesitate to send an email to someone of "Tree of a Kite!"

Take Me To Your LeaderFrom their earliest cinematic appearance in Georges Méliès's "A Trip to the Moon" in 1902, our conception of life beyond Earth has changed to reflect our hopes and fears, the technology we've mastered, and our growing knowledge of the universe. Watch our depictions of extraterrestrial life change over nearly 100 films and 112 years.

The Lives We Live - Now Under Way!

  • Contributed by:

BlogDogIt

The Lives We Live - A Reality Show - Pilot‘The Lives We Live’ is different. The very first reality show in the blogging format – like many engagements produced within The Neighborhood – it breaks new ground in online entertainment. But more importantly, unlike the overwhelming majority of our other nearly 300 original shows, most of the contributors are not artists and were not actively seeking the spotlight when i sought them out. But here they are, living their lives out loud, and perhaps one of them, may be on their way to becoming an underground star. Source: The Neighborhood "performance art of blogging & imagination to change the world." – Kendall F. Person

My music is a reflection of my life and my deep southern roots.
– Nashville Recording Artist Lance Stinson, Lumber City Georgia

BlogDogIt Note: Today I received a twitter notification on my cell (like ya' do) reminding me that the ground-breaking reality show from TheNeighborhood titled "The Lives We Live" was happening today. Thanks to Kendall for the reminder because my day was getting the better of me and I was actually "spacing" the whole affair. After looking in on the event and listening to Lance Stinson's contribution I decided to add to my workload and get this here post up lickety-split.

This song is SO Country that I almost gave it a pass. Then somewhere along the way my southern blood got to bubblin' and before I knew what hit me I was remembering those bygone days when I once counted myself a fan of the genre.

I like to think of myself of a connoisseur of every type of music (I am a follower of The Neighborhood after all) but I tell you what, Lance Stinson hits the nail square on the head with this one when he reminds us that "Country [particularly real-deal country] Never Goes Out Of Style!"

And now... Back to the show

Earth to Talia...Mystery novelist Talia has success, a supportive husband, a beautiful new home in the countryside -- but no new ideas. However, a discovery on the grounds of Talia's new home captures her imagination. In an ancient chest she finds art dedicated to a demon called The Pale King, art that could only be the product of a tormented mind. Before long, the Pale King whispers to Talia, and her quest to create becomes an obsession with darkness -- one that could drive her to murder.

Powers Of 10 - PicknicPowers of Ten™ (1977)

Powers of Ten takes us on an adventure in magnitudes. Starting at a picnic by the lakeside in Chicago, this famous film transports us to the outer edges of the universe. Every ten seconds we view the starting point from ten times farther out until our own galaxy is visible only a s a speck of light among many others. Returning to Earth with breathtaking speed, we move inward- into the hand of the sleeping picnicker- with ten times more magnification every ten seconds. Our journey ends inside a proton of a carbon atom within a DNA molecule in a white blood cell. POWERS OF TEN © 1977 EAMES OFFICE LLC (www.eamesoffice.com)

Grammercy Records

Funny how things often go 'off the rails' when in the midst of an internet search (for me they do at least.) All I wanted to do was confirm the definition of the word "gramercy" so I did a Yahoo search on the word and discovered that (according to thefreedictionary.com) it is an archaic interjection used to express surprise or gratitude. Besides that, I also became aware of a record label out of Seattle, WA called "Grammercy Records."

Their music catalog features records from the following genre: Blues, Jazz, Classical, World and Spiritual. I have been known to enjoy each of the above mentioned styles of music so I decided to step inside this little record shop and have a look around. They offer a pretty nice selection from a number of various artists; what really caught my eye were the record covers featured in the slide presentation below.

While I don't necessarily endorse the subjects shown in the graphics I must admit that I do enjoy the retro exploitation artwork...

Look but don't touch!

 

 

 

Enjoy!

Gramercy!

An Occurrence at Owl Creek BridgeThe story is set during the Civil War and has been captured in black and white. The film opens on a railway bridge over Owl Creek where a Southern saboteur is about to be hanged....

This embedded video presents the 25 minute Twilight Zone broadcast (along with Spanish subtitles.) It had been awhile since I had seen this stirring motion picture and I enjoyed it nearly as much this time as any previous viewing. I trust you will too.

Enjoy!

The Dog House ShowYou know me... I take a look at the tweets every day if I can; sometimes only to discover I have been followed by some mega-conglomerate that I just know really cares about what is going on in my life right up to the point where "I ain't buying it..."

Today I learn that I picked up a new Twitter follower (#85 woo-hoo!!) four days ago (ok, so maybe I don't check it every day - see more proof I do stuff...) Now I ask you, how could I not investigate a follower by the name of "The Dog House Show" or @doghouseshow (to be precise?)

What I find is the Twitter presence of a YouTube channel featuring a fresh animated web series called (ironically enough) "The Dog House Show." Here are the words from the "About" page on that site:

A show about Kole Kardashian, yet another brother of that infamous family, and his lady dogs- Rachel and Martica. This hilarious web series will take you on a ride with the funny shenanigans of this crazy trio.

So get in on the ground-floor with Webisode Numero Uno from this all-new, gotta-subscribe-to channel: The DogHouse Show

Enjoy!

Joe Atkin's - Post TraumaA police detective is called to mediate a hostage situation, but finds the situation isn't exactly what he expected. Starring Rusty James, Kevin Roach, and Cindy Maples.

Written and Directed by:
Joe Atkinson.

( < 3 min! = WatchNow! :D )

Post Trauma from Joe Atkinson on Vimeo.

Joe Atkinson had the following to say on Facebook, regarding the release of this gem:

    In the last couple of weeks, I've kind of been emptying the vault of all the film projects I've done in the last couple of years. I think this is the last one - my entry into HBO's Project Greenlight. I did not win. But the challenge of telling a full story in three minutes or less was kind of fun ... plus, I got to work with great folks like Rusty James, Kevin Roach, Cindy Maples, and Caitlin Sullivan in front of the camera; and DP Bonnell and Jimmy Sanders behind it. Thank you to everyone for helping make Post Trauma happen!

BlogDogIt Note: Thank you Joe for sharing this Great Work!

The Blind Men and the Elephant

 

The Blind Men and the Elephant

It was six men of Indostan
To learning much inclined,
Who went to see the Elephant
(Though all of them were blind),
That each by observation
Might satisfy his mind

The First approached the Elephant,
And happening to fall
Against his broad and sturdy side,
At once began to bawl:
God bless me! but the Elephant
Is very like a wall!

The Second, feeling of the tusk,
Cried, Ho! what have we here
So very round and smooth and sharp?
To me tis mighty clear
This wonder of an Elephant
Is very like a spear!

The Third approached the animal,
And happening to take
The squirming trunk within his hands,
Thus boldly up and spake:
I see, quoth he, the Elephant
Is very like a snake!

The Fourth reached out an eager hand,
And felt about the knee.
What most this wondrous beast is like
Is mighty plain, quoth he;
'Tis clear enough the Elephant
Is very like a tree!

The Fifth, who chanced to touch the ear,
Said: Even the blindest man
Can tell what this resembles most;
Deny the fact who can
This marvel of an Elephant
Is very like a fan!?

The Sixth no sooner had begun
About the beast to grope,
Than, seizing on the swinging tail
That fell within his scope,
I see, quoth he, the Elephant
Is very like a rope!

And so these men of Indostan
Disputed loud and long,
Each in his own opinion
Exceeding stiff and strong,
Though each was partly in the right,
And all were in the wrong!

Moral:

So oft in theologic wars,
The disputants, I ween,
Rail on in utter ignorance
Of what each other mean,
And prate about an Elephant
Not one of them has seen
!

 

-- John Godfrey Saxe
