What Screams May Come

'To sleep, perchance to dream.'

Or not. Depending on whether you've seen this curmudgeon-ly cute (Oscar nom'd) short, based on The Brothers Grimm's tale.

Granny Grimm's 'Sleeping Beauty'

{5 min}

*Forgot to warn you not to view at bedtime.

Oops. Sleep tight.

For TT's 'Sleep' day... btw, here's Granny on Twitter

Hoppy Easter

Hope everybunny has a nice hare-y-day.


edited to add a candy FYI:

Circus Peanuts Do you too have a family member that requests those orangy-bananaish circus peanut things?

I've had to buy them in the past, and I can never seem to find fresh ones.

But this month Brach's has an Easter version called 'Chicks & Rabbits' that will be fresh for the next few weeks. *At least as 'fresh' as these thingies ever get...
Chicks & Rabbits

Happy Easter, all

Dogs Vs Cats

The real difference between cats and dogs?
Its in their TV viewing, of course.

Dogs watch Animal Planet...

{14 sec}

Cats watch the news...

{20 sec}

Which one is smarter? Well...

thats still up for debate... but at least the cat ran away.

Fresh Take on Old Spice

I have a confession.
I mute all TV ads, even for shows & products that I like.

But rules were made to be broken, and
for these Old Spice ads I made an exception:

*first 12 secs appear normal...
{30 sec}

Quick visual tricks and nonsense? = worth viewing.

Now here's
'Behind the Scenes' as they film a new one

... all in *one* take:
(in the first minute)

{3 min}

If they go to that much trouble, I'll pay attention.
Even if I have no idea what that 'spice' smells like.

Now, a non-Spice, but still fun: NY Fest winner, 40 sec

All for fun, & TT's Spice day.

Rain Man

Artist Gregory Thielker does rain, via oil paint:
*yes* - these are oil paintings...

"Coming To a Complete Stop"

"In Between"

"Until Now"

Looking at his paintings helps me appreciate this weather.

I'm hoping next month he'll be working on flowers... ;-)
