3d or not 3d? that is the question.

3D_Theater_Moviegoers_thumb

when my girls were young

we went on a matinee date

to see a dollar movie in 3d

everyone was so excited

then came

the popcorn and sweet treats

the movie started

the cardboard 3d glasses

got bent

 kept coming off

i finally used their barrettes

to attach them

right to their hair

 greasy popcorn hands 

made smears all over the lenses

 sticky candy stuff

got on their hair

 it got tangled

there were spills

 the movie was bad

at least one started crying

no one could see

out of their magic glasses

there was

a lot of

loud whispering

 it was not

exactly 

what we expected

but we had

our own

very exciting

 real life

3d action adventure

right in our little row

none the less

and that’s

a heck of a lot of entertainment

for just a buck.

a mind that is stretched by a new experience

can never go back to its old dimensions.

i love the casting call 

for the latest

group of extras

needed

for a film

being shot locally. 

though i don’t have the look of

a sketchy male or a crack head ,

 i could easily be

a gawker or neighborhood folk.

good to know.

The first day for extras on Destined is Wednesday.
The extras rate on Destined will be $65.20/8hrs with OT after 8hrs.
(All must be 18+ with a valid photo ID)

I am looking for 8 “Neighborhood Folk” and 2 “Sketchy Males” on Wednesday.

On Thursday, I’ll need 2 “Gawkers” (Available on the 6th and 25th), a couple of “Crack Heads”, and a few more “Neighborhood Folk”.

VivanLasAntipodas-DVD-F

what is an antipode?

two places diametrically opposite each other on the earth’s surface.

they are very rare.

what is the shortest route between them?

a straight line through the center of the earth.

i recently saw ‘vivan las antipodas’

released in 2011

directed by russian documentary maker

victor kossakovsky

who had a radical idea

to visit these places

and shoot four antipodal pairs:

argentina/china
spain/new zealand
chile/russia
botswana/hawaii

he filmed it in a way

that literally

turned the world

upside down

and back again

for 108  meandering minutes

i was blown away

by the beauty

of

the landscapes

the people

the animals

the music

the colors

the contrasts

 the connections

some things are universal

life

death

money

sex

family

friends

community

survival

love

it was

quietly

stunning

and

it was

dizzying.
