Everyone can stop holding their breath. Cubeecraft has begun to release the Alice In Wonderland Cubee series. Creator Chris Beaumont suprised us late last night with a poem from Lewis Carrol and a link to the new cubee Alice. She can be seen here. You have your choice of two color schemes. Print one out today. This was just a sneak-peak and he will begin releasing the rest of the Alice In Wonderland series later on. I know I’m patiently waiting for the Mad Hatter. Click the jump to read the poem.
This is a crazy video filmed in an entirely new way. It tells a story in just a single shot. The camera zooms through a bank robbery scene as if it was in pause. It was also meant to be looped as a continuous video. I’m posting the youtube video here, but I strongly suggest you watch it at their site, here. You can watch it in full screen HD and it has a few extras in the video about making it. Also, I found a couple “easter eggs” at the very end. First: the cop car number is 219, which is how long the video is, and the aspect ratio they filmed the video in (they even talk about it in one of the extras). Second: check out the Cop’s name tag. If you see any, post them. I would love to know if there are more. Now enjoy the video, I sure did.
The new Rob Thomas solo album Cradlesong is set to release June 30th, 2009. The new single, Her Diamonds, from that album is set to hit radio waves Wednesday, April 22. But you can here it here before then (click Song Player). Rob’s first solo release Something To Be was a big success selling over 1.5 million copies. Rob also became the first male artist from a rock or pop group to have their first solo album debut at number one since Billboard introduced the chart fifty years ago. To say his latest solo effort will be a hit would be an understatement. Here are the lyrics for Her Diamonds.
I know times are getting tough. Finding the money to buy things you want or need can be a challenge. Some guys over at a website I can’t read because its in some language I don’t know, have posted photos on how to make sandals with items found here and there. The photos have not instructions (not that I could read them if they did) but the pictures do a good job showing exactly what to do. If anyone tries this, please send me some pictures, I would love to see them.
If you missed Joaquin Phoenix on The Late Show with David Letterman Wednesday, then you missed a wild ride. The Golden Globe winning actor was there to promote his new movie Two Lovers. The entire time seemed drugged up and was slurring his speech. He was slow to answer David’s questions, if he even answered them at all. He got upset when the audience and Paul Shaffer, Letterman’s sidekick and Band leader, chuckled at his supposed career change into Hip-Hop music. At one point, Letterman commented on him chewing gum during the interview so Joaquin spit it out and, like a kid in school, stuck it under his desk.
I found this video on Break.com and thought it was so funny. A guy tries to mug a man at an ATM and pays for it in the end.
Last week I told you this week is CHD Awareness week. I also told you about my daughter Allison who has a CHD called Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS). Well, today I want to bring you a poem. It was written by a woman in 1987 named Emily Perl Kingsley. She has been a writer for the PBS kids program Sesame Street since 1970. She also has a son, Jason, that was born with Down Syndrome in 1974. It was said back then that children with Down Syndrome could never walk or talk. Jason proved them wrong by co-authoring a book with Mitchell Levitz titled “This Is My Son.” Emily Kingsley has written several kids books and a couple Sesame Street home videos. She has also won 12 Daytime Emmys and 9 nominations for her work with Sesame Street. Although this poem was written about her son, I feel it also applies to the situation me and my wife have faced having Allison.
