"This is how Straight 8 works. The filmmaker shoots a 3 minute film onto a single cartridge of Super 8 (8mm). Each cartridge has a serial number. We make a note of that before sending the film out so that people cant cheat and start again. Sometimes we send them colour film, and sometimes its Black & White. The filmmaker shoots each scene in order. Editing in-camera with each pull of the trigger. And the first time they or anyone sees the films is at a packed screening in front of hundreds of people."
Let me know if you liked those and I'll post more soon.

This little pixie has me totally spellbound. Please take a listen to "Sprout and the Bean" and allow yourself to be whisked away into her majickal world...
I'm sitting about three feet away from the "stage" which is little more than a carpet thrown across the same floor my feet are touching. Just behind that imaginary stage line is a giant harp, taller than me and on a grand scale, the type of thing you might see being played at the wedding of the Moon and the Milky Way. Suddenly, a quite contrasting, short little girl comes out, long hair, nearly pointed ears protruding and her face the combination of a sleeping baby and a punch in the face. She sits down at the harp, adjusts her shoulders and positions her fingers. She begins playing, and she is two instruments, each hand playing a different mood, each finger plucking a different emotion. Then her voice kicks in and I would be a fool to attempt to describe it, just as anyone who has in the past is. All I can say is that another more wonderful instrument joins the barrage and as bittersweet lyrics employing the work of whicker beetleshells and suppers consisting primarily of salt come rolling into your ears you finally experience what Artemis must have been thinking when he sent music down to those petty pagan Greeks." ~ ClickNathan

Of course, there is a downside to everything.
"When a father discovers that his son has just taken a permanent marker all over the walls in a creative outburst, the innate drive that comes up is to scold the boy for destroying something, though a clear mind can realize that nothing has been destroyed at all. The exact opposite just occurred, actually. Why is that not the initial response, when logically it is so obvious?"

ART or HACK Quiz
"Some of the quotes below are from one of the greatest writers ever. The other are from one commercial writer, who achived popularity among uneducated people, but failed to make any significant contribution to the Literature. Can you tell the difference between their prose?"
This quiz irritates me for so many reasons. I don't even know why I'm blogging it.
Ha Hah hah HaH!
This article assumes you know about the "Define" function in Google (explained on this page.)
Okay so, I've recently discovered that this function can even define those little words that have been made up for chat rooms and text messaging, like LOL or OMG. That's hilarious.
Even more so because Blogger (Google owned) still doesn't recognize the words "google" or "blog" when doing a spell check.
