12:40 am: Today, the world. Tomorrow, chilli!!!
I was reading friends' posts the other nite and came across a startling fact, the Reel Independent Film Series is playing locally this week. More importantly, REJECTED is one of the shorts to be shown! I haven't seen this cartoon for a couple of years now and it was my absolute favourite from Spike and Mike's Festival of Sick and Twisted animation. By coincidence, I had ordered the DVD for the short a day before learning I'll be seeing it again upon the big screen. Gear!

I learned the above delightful tidbit of information from my friend miang, attends Anime Club with me. -- Not WITH me, but I see her there. -- I may actually get her to come to the next Craptacular showing since I'm amassing a collection of things to show that aren't actually "crap". They've played just about everything else from Fist of the North Star to the live action Dragonball Z movie to the Power Rangers. So much anime out there could qualify on bad English dubs alone but some of us look for something unique. Last time I brought What's Up Tiger Lilly? and someone else had, ugh, Cannibal: The Musical Next time (whenever that may be) I'll have Red vs Blue, Rejected, Strongbad e-mails, and lots of kewel flash cartoons. Get some enthusiasm up for the Craptacular. Eee-uh! Y'all be gettin' it good there, right!

I (woah, third paragraph starting with "I." Am I self-centered or what?)... I had the privilege and pleasure of meeting tlhinganhom online over this past weekend and we had a nice (meaning: no one ran away screaming) introductory conversation. A very bright and witty lady, I must say, but I still didn't explain what it was that I sent along to her in exchange for one of her special candy canes. I thought it best to let her decide what it was, giving it an air of mystery and wonder, not only to the gift itself, but also of its sender. It's much more interesting than saying it was the nearest thing on hand that would actually fit into the little origami box I'd made. Not that it was a half hazard decision, mind you. I gave quite a deal of thought to the quality, colour and size of what I would include, and made special care that all would fit together well. "What is it?" you ask? You'll just have to figure that out for yourselves.

Oh, and Hal, since I've seen Pink Floyd in your "Currently listening to:" section a number of times but only selections from The Wall, this link is for you.

Yesterday in the junkmail paper there was an ad for the local grocery store. Paging through, I found that there were a number of sales themed on chilli! Chilli! Something I've been looking forward to making ever since the previous owners of my house gave me their crockpot. So this morning after almost oversleeping (again!) I hurried to the store and picked up a few things for an easy chilli recipe on the back of the powder mix. It looks disappointingly easy, to be honest, but I have another recipe that actually involves work I will try after this one. Look out girls, this boy is learnin' to cook!

Current mood: sneeze coming

Might want to watch who you're linking to there...I only say this because the girl who took my 'real' name on LJ has some pretty serious issues (unless it's a joke journal). Go on, click the link if you dare. :D

Supposedly there's some sort of way to type out someone's real name with the LJ user tag and have it link to their proper account, but I have yet to figure out how to do it...so I just link to the account itself (e.g. miang, evil_jim, etc.)

With that out of the way, go see The Animation Show! I didn't get around to writing a review of it, but it was fantastic. Billy's Balloon cracked me up almost as much as Rejected did, and there were a couple other absolutely great shorts. (They showed the original Office Space cartoon, too.) So so so good. Have fun! :D

Thank you for the head's up. I checked out the other journal by sheree and yes, it is scary 0_O. I have since corrected the post so it links to yours... unless you would prefer I didn't link. Also, thanks for the code. The first time I wrote the entire address for your journal out the long way.

Yes, I am planning on going to the Animation show. I've recruited sacredspud (new code) to join me since he was there the first time we saw Rejected. I'm also looknig forward to Billy's Balloon as I've only heard about it and that it's also by Don Hertzfeldt. Wok on!

It's a giant marble shooter. My grandpa had one. It's way to big for my hands, though. But I do thank you very much for it regardless :-) And I shall get that cane to you.. if I have to mail it, or something. I uhh.. swear.

Yes! That's just what it was when I bought it in Orlando Florida four years ago (this week.) I really liked the color and when I found it again recently it reminded me of the first picture I saw of you in your journal. I'm glad you like it ^_^

...and they're not all from the wall. Some are from dark side of the moon. And I have the Division Bell too but I guess I just don't listen to it often. Err, besides, the wall is a damn good album. :-p

I stand corrected. And yes, The Wall is damn good. I have four different copies of it. Roger Waters did a live Wall concert in Berlin in '91 you should hear. Among other musical guests it has Tim Curry as the prosecutor in The Trial sequence.
