Black Thursday: Fortune, Cookie!

Happy Frickin Valentine's Day!

Greetings, Programs!

A few holiday how-dya-dos for ya, a little early for some, a little late for others...

Io, Lupercalia!—aka Hooray, fertility?!... or something.

Gong Xi Fa Cai!—aka Joy and Prosperity in the coming year!

Happy birthday to Anna Howard Shaw!—aka I miss 30 ROCK already... If I never watch the final episode, that means it never ended, right? (I've still got most of this season DVR-saved and unwatched =)

And of course, Happy Frickin Black Thursday!—aka Happy Frickin Valentine's Day!

So, yeah. Here's that thing that I made for you. Don't make a big thing of it.

Click, enjoy, and share! (Beware of the usual heavy snark, nerdy non sequitur, light smarm, eclectic musicks, and also a familiar-yet-unidentifiable aftertaste... in bed! Wokka wokka wokka! =)

And... If you've got some time and internet to kill, *please* have a looksee at the multi-part post-script that follows. Thanks!

Hugs and kisses~

P.S. I've got a sorta-design in the shirt.woot t-shirt design derby this week: Dark Initiative. Inspired by the news that J.J. Abrams will be helming STAR WARS VII, it's a mash-up of LOST and STAR WARS artifacts (surprise surprise, right?). Please give it a look, and if you dig it, drop a vote on it! Voting closes at noon on Thursday, so act now! =)

Note that In order to vote, you have to be logged in as a *member/customer* (which means you have to have made at least one purchase from any division). If you can't vote—and somehow do not happen to need a new laptop or a gross of "Little Hottie" hand warmers—then please consider passing the link on to friends who might like to see the shirt printed. Thanks and Namaste!

P.P.S. The Brattle has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the installation of digital projection tech and an upgrade to the theater's HVAC system. Please do yourself and your loved ones a favor and help keep me off the streets by ensuring that I have a properly climate controlled venue in which to watch the awesome digital and celluloid zoetropes that are all the rage. The Kickstarter rewards for pledges range from having your name on screen before every feature for a year to Brattle tickets, schwag, and membership to live experiences and events with Neil Gaiman, Amanda Palmer, Matt Damon, and John Lithgow, but not all together at the same time, just Neil and Amanda or Matt and John.

Yeah, totally lame, right? =)

Every little bit helps, and, hey! $20 gets you a date night at the Brattle and your name in lights! Please check it out and give! Give til just before it hurts!

Unless, y'know... you're into that. Then by all means, keep giving!

P.P.P.S. Bogart, Bergman, and Bugs at the Brattle! CASABLANCA plays now thru Black Thursday (alas, the 7pm show is already sold out) and the Bugs Bunny Film Festival starts up on Friday! Please have a look at the schedule, get thee to CASABLANCA if you can, and let me know if you're up for meeting up for some cartoon goodness! If schedule allows, would love to take in the classics with company! =)

P.P.P.P.S. If you've resisted my Jedi mind trickery so far, would you unclench already and give these EMPIRE UNCUT clips a look? And a LIKE, if you do—requires login via fb. Thanks! May the Force be with you.~

"Set a course for adventure..." Starring Nephew-D2!

"Lando's Castle—Tokens Only!" Visit Cloud City's premier videogame arcade!

If you feel like riffing on 15 seconds of your own, rolled over all their clips a couple weeks ago. Take one and (re)make it your own! I'm hoping to get a third clip completed in the next month, before dealing with post-op limbo—whee!~ Rest assured that you will feel the disturbance in the Force if it gets done. Also, I will probably email you.

P.P.P.P.P.S. A reward (I'd like to think =) for making it all the way down this email: a snapmashup from Snowpocalypse 2013...

Keep on post-keepin on~

Vote: Dark Initiative!

Repurposed my LOST x STAR WARS mash-up artifact (inspired by the news that J.J.A. would helm SW7) for this week's shirt.woot "New Secret Societies" derby and came up with this: Dark Initiative.
Dark Initiative, aka D.A.R.K.—Dark Applications Research and Knowledge.

When Galactic 815 crashed on that uncharted moon, the survivors could never have imagined uncovering the Dark Initiative's Itsa Space station beneath its surface.

This is the sign for that particular DI station. Who knows how many others there may be...?

Also, did you hear that J.J. Abrams is directing a movie with the word "star" in its title?
I was pretty late to the game in submitting—voting closes at noon!— so act now! =)

Remember (from shirt.woot)...
Only users who have made at least one purchase at any Woot site may vote in the Derby. If that’s you, just click “I’d Want One” next to any designs that catch your fancy. You can vote for as many different designs as you like, but only once per design. If you don’t see the “I’d Want One” buttons next to the designs, you’re either not logged in, or you’ve never bought anything from Woot. Go log in and/or buy something if you want to vote.
Namaste and may the Force be with you.

Keep on keepin on~
