Not sure who wrote it, but I like it:

A Rifleman’s Prayer

Oh Lord, I would live my life in freedom, peace and happiness, enjoying the simple pleasures of hearth and home. I would die an old, old man in my own bed, preferably of sexual overexertion.

But if that is not to be, Lord, if monsters such as this should find their way to my little corner of the world on my watch, then help me to sweep those bastards from the ramparts, because doing that is good, and right, and just.

And if in this I should fall, let me be found atop a pile of brass, behind the wall I made of their corpses.

Heh

Pelosium

Match Cut

Here's a little foreshadowing for ya!

Thanks to FXSupply.com, the DMAFB BX Sporting Goods Department, and Pima College's awesome Graphics folks, I got some of the props today for my Advanced Video Production movie.

I got a good lead on one of my three speaking/acting parts, but today's casting call was utterly devoid of heroine material.

Also got recruited to be Armorer on a classmate's movie, so I only need to pick up at least one more slot somewhere else. We have to participate in three classmate productions. If I don't get any nibbles for technical jobs anywhere, there's always Craft Services. Heck, buying pizza for someone's crew can't be that hard.

Hey, who knew Gerber made machetes?

I Guess I'm a Company

When I first started blogging shooting match videos from YouTube, I added the Cowboy Blob Productions logo more as a joke than any attempt to brand my work. After all, I was only using an itty-bitty Canon PowerShot; that was a bit before the film school bug bit me. Now I'm accumulating production equipment and know-how. When I heard several of my classmates mention that they have a "production company," I came to realize that so do I! Oh, wait, is a production company supposed to make money? And not just spend it?









I just got my new light kit from the Big Brown Truck of Happiness today. The next two months of GI Bill $$$ (thank heavens for cheap Community College tuition!) are going towards a good video tripod, a shotgun mic and boom. I could have just relied on the school's equipment for my Advanced Video project, but I'm thinking of the future (or at least not being restricted by equipment availability as my 21 classmates are shooting their own projects this Spring). Today, I also bought two outdoor extension cords, a jug of theatrical blood, and two sets of kitchen knives. This should be fun!

I'm pretty sure stuff like this ought to be tax-deductible some day. Once I actually make any money doing this, I ought to talk to an accountant about it.

Casting Call!

Well, if you're wondering why my blogging has slowed to a crawl, blame school... and FaceBook.

How I Spent My Saturday Afternoon

I was camera op until my knees complained a bit too much. I got back on the Shiny Red Button after we returned to the tripod.

The jittery image is from my forgetting to eat breakfast or lunch, then trying to hold a too-light Flip cam steady during a nervous energy crash. There ought to be a big lead weight you can attach to it.

Weekend Caption/Photoshop Contest

Sticky: Scroll down for new stuff.

Original caption:

A tiger cub dressed in traditional Chinese wear is seen at the Sriracha Tiger Zoo in Thailand's Chonburi Province, nearly 100 km (62 miles) east of Bangkok January 26, 2010. Tiger numbers have fallen by more than 70 percent in slightly more than a decade in the Greater Mekong, with the region's five countries containing only 350 tigers, according to a World Wildlife Fund (WWF) report released on Monday.
