Years ago I used to do these stick people drawings. I always had a lot of fun with them, mostly because they were cute and silly. I thought I’d try some new ones as well as share some of the old ones.
I’ve recently discovered the amazing world of sorbet, so I’ve been making my own. They’re delicious and super easy to make.
Here we have a pineapple sorbet and strawberry/rhubarb sorbet. Both pretty darn tasty. I made a grapefruit/orange sorbet earlier and it was pretty amazing as well.
I’m glad I got into this at the beginning of Summer, soon I’ll be a fresh fruit sorbet making machine!
Today is Ray Harryhausen’s birthday! If you don’t know who he is or have never seen any of his work, shame on you.
I think my favourite would have to be Jason and The Argonauts. Mostly because it was the first example of his work I saw and also…it’s an awesome film.
There’s a great book by Harryhausen himself covering his entire career that’s FILLED with tons of amazing photos and drawings. It’s called Ray Harryhausen - An Animated Life and it’s well worth buying.
I was in Costco earlier this month, and as I passed by the 3D-TV display I saw Elvis. He was trying out the 3D glasses and having a great ‘ol time.
For some reason it seemed like I was the only one who noticed him. Crowds of people were going by pushing their carts totally oblivious to the fact that the King was dancing around wearing 3D glasses.
I hope they gave him a good deal.
Two weeks ago I received the Alien Anthology courtesy of City of Films. Thank you!
I’ve been very slowly making my way through all the films. I’m new to blu-ray so I’m still very excited about it. The first film in particular looks amazing, you hardly believe the film is over 30 years old. It has a fantastic transfer.
Tonight’s film was Alien 3 and I know it’s not widely liked but…I enjoy it. It’s nowhere in the same league as Alien or Aliens but it’s an enjoyable albeit depressing film and a good conclusion to the series (at least until Alien Resurrection came around).
Even if the film isn’t your cup of tea, David Fincher’s behind the scenes struggles as well as the “wooden planet” script make for a fascinating tale in and of itself.
