My Prized Possession

To most, this is just a piece of junk. Anyone looking through my utensil drawer would think I should have tossed it long ago.  Afterall, it's no longer functional. It just takes up space!  In my eyes it is beautiful. All of its imperfections are part of its story. Part of MY story. In 1984 I was moving into my very first apartment.  I was about to have my own kitchen.  I had nothing to put in it of course except for a set of dishes I purchased at a yard sale and some glasses Id collected from work lol. My mother took me to the store and bought me a set of pots & pans.  She also reached into her own utensil drawer and took out this very spatula.  It was one of her older ones.  Its handle already had several battle wounds from being against the side of a skillet a little too long as she used it to prepare meals for my dad and me. Over the years I have used it to prepare meals for my own family.  My children used it as they learned to cook.   I retired it about 10 years ago beca…

A creepy Jack-In-The-Box and A New Pair of Shoes. What More Could A Girl Want?

Good morning everyone!
Its 3:40am Alaska time and +9 degrees.
I'm halfway through my first latte and am currently looking for the next marathon.
Any suggestions?

 Did ya miss me yesterday??
I woke up and started working up promos and next thing ya know, my day was gone lol. Oh, I did a couple loads of laundry, dishes, cooked dinner & all that mundane stuff in between, but still, it flew by. Next thing ya know, its evening. I'm a morning blogger, for the most part. So I just didn't do it lol.

The last couple of days I've been marathoning a miniseries I found on Amazon Prime called Mad Dogs. It's like a dark comedy/thriller/action kinda thing all rolled up into one burrito.
Its got action. Its got comedy, its got a teeny tiny bit of romance.
Not something Id let the kids watch. There were a couple of times people got shot in the head close range, just an FYI.

The Synopsis:
When a group of underachieving 40-something friends gather in Belize to celebrate the early…

Stars In Her Eyes

Good morning everyone!
Its 2:18am Alaska time and +17 degrees.
It's friggin' snowing again. they are talking 12-17 inches.
Let's hope they are wrong!

Yesterday I ended up marathoning a show I found on Amazon Prime called Britannia. Have you watched it? If you haven't, you need to. It's fan-friggin-Tastic!

Synopsis:
 Loosely based on historical events, "Britannia" is set in A.D. 43, when the Romans invaded Britain led by General Aulus Plautius, who is determined to succeed where Julius Caesar failed and conquer this mythical land on the very end of the Roman Empire. Kerra, daughter of the King of the Cantii, is forced to put her differences with archrival Queen Antedia aside in order to unite the tribes and supposedly magical Druids and face their invaders. But General Aulus carries a secret that threatens to undermine the entire mission.

The first season aired this past January 2018. I'm waiting with baited breath for season 2!

Ok, time to get another…

Expression is Important

Good morning everyone!
Its 6:22am Alaska time and -7 degrees.
When the snow stops, the temp drops lol.
Its gonna be a curl up under the blankets an watch movies kinda day I think. It's either that or bake something lmao

Speaking of watching movies, I'm marathoning a show called Lore
Have you seen it? Not a good show for the little ones. No gore or foul language, but it does insinuate violence.

Synopsys:
Writer Aaron Mahnke launched his podcast "Lore" in 2015 and it has gained critical acclaim in the time since, including earning Best of 2015 honors from iTunes. The audio program is now becoming a TV series as an anthology that, like the podcast, uncovers real-life events that spawned people's darkest nightmares. Taking advantage of its ability to showcase visuals, the series blends animation in with the storytelling and narration. "Lore" has a strong horror pedigree, with some of its executive producers coming from other horror fare, including "The…

Good thing I filled up the car and everything yesterday lmao

When I was a child, I used to LOVE the Peter Rabbit books.
He was always so mischevious and full of adventure!
Yesterday, I found out that he still is lol
I made the trek into town to see him at the theater. I loved it :D
I hadn't laughed that much in a long time.
Its family friendly, so take the whole gang. The kids will love it too!

Synopsis:
Peter Rabbit, his three sisters, and their cousin enjoy spending their days in Mr. McGregor's vegetable garden.
When one of McGregor's relatives suddenly moves in, he's less than thrilled to discover a family of rabbits in his new home. A battle of wills soon breaks out as the new owner hatches scheme after scheme to get rid of Peter -- a resourceful rabbit who proves to be a worthy and wily opponent.

Ok, I really need my second cuppa. Before I ge…

Portrait of A Warrior

Good morning everyone!
Its 5:48am Alaska time and +3 degrees.
We got 6-8 inches of snow yesterday.
Now I have to dig my jeep out so I can go to town lol

Last night I watched The Martian starring Matt Damon. Have you seen it yet? It was riveting! It came out in 2015. Featured song,  Star Man by David Bowie of course!

The Synopsys:
When astronauts blast off from the planet Mars, they leave behind Mark Watney (Matt Damon), presumed dead after a fierce storm. With only a meager amount of supplies, the stranded visitor must utilize his wits and spirit to find a way to survive on the hostile planet. Meanwhile, back on Earth, members of NASA and a team of international scientists work tirelessly to bring him home, while his crewmates hatch their own plan for a daring rescue mission.

I've had my 2nd Latte already and
I'm thinking that today shall be a 3 latte day lol.

I haven't watched a single thing the last couple of days.
I've been delving into the mysterious world of character creation lol
I have her basic shape and skin textures ready. Still working on details and options. I spent Hours the other night painting a delicate/girlie belly tatt for her lol. It's been ages since I used my tablet! lol

Ok, I'm ready for that 3rd cuppa. Gotta get busy.
Before I go I wanted to share a recent promo I did via Sympatico Studio.
Just because she's an assassin does not mean that she doesn't accessorize!
She is sporting her new outfit and is now on the search for the perfect toys to add to her bag of necessary gear. Momma always said that a girl should look her best no matter what she does for a living.

Fun Fashion

Good morning everyone!
Its 4:11am Alaska time and +19 degrees.
I'm one latte down and ready for number 2.

Last night I was channel surfing and ran across a show called The Resident on fox. Have you seen it? I rather enjoyed it.
It centers on an idealistic young doctor and prior military medic (Matt Czuchry) who begins his first day under the supervision of a tough, brilliant senior resident who pulls the curtain back on all of the good and evil in modern-day medicine.
It dealt with real issues, like dreamers and how they are treated (or not) in our medical system. I touched on the staff being forced to learn how to jack up the cost & make the hospital more money. In a nutshell, it exposes the seedy side of medicine. You should check it out.

I've got more promos to do, and I'm working on a new character on the side lol.
Busy, busy, busy! I need my second cuppa now lol.
Before I go, I want to share a promo I did a while back Featuring the Tora Outfit by prae.

Last night I watched the 2010 version of Clash of the Titans.
And of course, even though the effects are cheesy, its fantasy and I dig it lol.
Liam isn't exactly how I envision Zeus, but Perseus is the guy from Avatar so who cares! lol

Synopsis:
Perseus (Sam Worthington), the son of Zeus (Liam Neeson), is caught in a war between gods and is helpless to save his family from Hades (Ralph Fiennes), the god of the underworld. With nothing left to lose, Perseus leads a band of warriors on a dangerous quest to prevent Hades from overthrowing the king of the gods and laying waste to Earth.

Lots of rendering to do today, and hopefully, I can find the time to work on some personal art lol. We shall see! But it won't happen if I don't get busy lol.

Yesterday, my husband too the boys to see TheBlack Panther.
Have you seen it yet? I didn't go.I assumed it would be crowded and I just couldn't "people" yesterday lol. He gave it rave reviews, so if they put it on the matinee at some point, I will definitely go lol.

Synopsis:
After the death of his father, T'Challa returns home to the African nation of Wakanda to take his rightful place as king. When a powerful enemy suddenly reappears, T'Challa's mettle as king -- and as Black Panther -- gets tested when he's drawn into a conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people.

A Peek Through The Reading Glasses

Good morning everyone!
Its 4:35am Alaska time and -1 degrees.
I'm one latte down and ready for another.

I've got an old movie from 2012 called Sinister playing on the iPad.
Was just channel surfing and saw it on SYFY lol.

Synopsis:
True-crime writer Ellison Oswald (Ethan Hawke) is in a slump; he hasn't had a best seller in more than 10 years and is becoming increasingly desperate for a hit. So, when he discovers the existence of a snuff film showing the deaths of a family, he vows to solve the mystery. He moves his own family into the victims' home and gets to work. However, when old film footage and other clues hint at the presence of a supernatural force, Ellison learns that living in the house may be fatal.

Sounds like its right up my alley, we shall see! lol
OK, I need my other latte. I need to get back to my movie and get my first render of the day cooking. Before I get started, I wanted to share a fun little promo I recently did featuring Classic Glasses for Dawn…

Moving Day

Good morning everyone!
Its 6:41am Alaska time and 17 degrees.
I'm two Latte's down and currently sipping on some lemon water lol.
I've already got my first promo of the day rendering.

Yesterday, I ran across Maze Runner on DTV streaming.
Watched it, liked it. After, I did a little digging and found there was a sequel on Amazon.
Watched it, liked it. There is a third currently playing at the theater.
Can you guess where I'm going this weekend? lol

Synopsys:

The Maze Runner
Thomas (Dylan O'Brien), a teenager, arrives in a glade at the center of a giant labyrinth. Like the other youths dumped there before him, he has no memory of his previous life. Thomas quickly becomes part of the group and soon after demonstrates a unique perspective that scores him a promotion to Runner status -- those who patrol the always-changing maze to find an escape route. Together with Teresa (Kaya Scodelario), the only female, Thomas tries to convince his cohorts that he knows a way out.

I've had one latte, sort of lol. I sent my daughter to the store yesterday and I think I forgot to put cream on the list. I'm so BUMMED! lol


My DTV streaming service wasn't connecting well so  Last night I watched The Frozen Ground starring Nicholas Cage. I don't normally watch movies based on Alaska because they don't film them here, but this one was. I remember them doing casting calls for extras lol. So, I decided what the heck and got it on VUDU.
I'm so glad I did! I think you will like it too. If you haven't seen it already, check it out!

Synopsis:
Inspired by the incredible true story that follows Alaskan State Trooper Jack Halcombe (Nicolas Cage) as he sets out to end the murderous rampage of Robert Hansen (John Cusack), a serial killer who has gone unnoticed for 13 years. As the bo…

I'm working on my first latte of the day.
Mmmm, that first sip is heavenly!

I've got The Possession playing on the iPad
Nothing gets my blood pressure up better than a good old possession movie lol.

Synopsys:
Loosely based on a true story, The Possession is the terrifying account of how one family must unite in order to survive the wrath of an unspeakable evil. Clyde (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and Stephanie Brenek (Kyra Sedgwick) see little cause for alarm when their youngest daughter Em becomes oddly obsessed with an antique wooden box she purchased at a yard sale. But as Em's behavior becomes increasingly erratic, the couple fears the presence of a malevolent force in their midst, only to discover that the box was built to contain a dibbuk, a dislocated spirit that inhabits and ultimately devours its human host.

Ok, I've gotta get my eyes open and get rendering. A ton o…

Yesterday, Mother Nature couldn't decide what to do.
We went from rain to snow and everything in between.
Now we have a nice layer of ice underneath that fresh powder.

Hey, have you seen the movie, Thelma?
It's a Norwegian supernatural horror-thriller. Yep, it's subtitled but its worth the watch.

Synopsis:
Thelma (Eili Harboe), a shy young student, has just left her religious family in a small town on the west coast of Norway to study at a university in Oslo. While at the library one day, she experiences a violent, unexpected seizure. Soon after, she finds herself intensely drawn toward Anja (Okay Kaya), a beautiful young student who reciprocates Thelma’s powerful attraction. As the semester continues, Thelma becomes increasingly overwhelmed by her intense feelings for Anja - feelings she doesn’t dare acknowledge, even to herself – while at the same time experiencing even more extreme seizures. As it becomes clea…

Long time no see!
I've been house-sitting for a friend and had no access to a computer for a few days lol

One night while I was there, I had fallen asleep with the TV on. I awoke to blood curdling screams lol
The old cult classic Pumpkin Head was on. I'm sure you've seen it. The film first aired back in 1988. I hadn't seen that movie in so long that I actually forgot it existed lol.

Synopsis:

With the help of a local witch (Florence Schauffler), Ed summons the vengeful demon Pumpkinhead to hunt and kill the group of friends.

I'm working on my first one. OH its heavenly :P

I'm not sure what her internet situation is over there, so I didn't want to stream anything.
I just watched whatever popped up on SYFY. It just so happens that last nights movie was The Last Witch Hunter. I had not seen it before. There were lots of familiar faces though.

Synopsys:
The modern world holds many secrets, the most astounding being that witches still live among us. Centuries ago, Kaulder (Vin Diesel) managed to slay the all-powerful Witch Queen, decimating her followers in the process. Before her death, she cursed the valiant warrior with her own immortality, separating him from his beloved wife and daughter in the afterlife. Her resurrection now threatens the survival…

Synopsis:
Power-hungry King Hyperion (Mickey Rourke) and his ruthless army march across Greece, leaving burned-out villages and the corpses of the innocent in their wake. Hyperion's goal is to find the long-lost Bow of Epirus; with this invincible weapon, he can cast the gods out of Mount Olympus and become master of the world. A stonemason named Theseus (Henry Cavill) heeds the words of the Sibylline oracle (Freida Pinto), who convinces him that he is the key to stopping the bloodthirsty king.

Ok, gotta go.  Theseus just found the bow lol

Its a total chick flick, and I loved it. I think you will too!

Synopsis -

But Melanie's past holds many secrets, including Jake (Josh Lucas), the redneck husband she married in high school, who refuses to divorce her.
