Six Word Memoir

Thanks to Oslowe, I have been tagged in that virulent, vampiric, spreading like the undead way known as the Internet Meme (I actually don’t mind, it was just a fun comparison).

There are Rules for the Interwebs.
The Six-Words Meme was originally started by Smith Magazine.
Legend has it that Hemingway was once challenged to write a story in only six words. His response? “For sale: baby shoes, never worn.” Last year, SMITH Magazine re-ignited the recountre by asking our readers for their own six-word memoirs. They sent in short life stories in droves, from the bittersweet (“Cursed with cancer, blessed with friends”) and poignant (“I still make coffee for two”) to the inspirational (“Business school? Bah! Pop music? Hurrah”) and hilarious (“I like big butts, can’t lie”).
Here are the rules:
1) Write your own six word memoir.
2) Post it on your blog and include a visual illustration if you’d like.
3) Link to the person that tagged you in your post, and to the original post if possible so we can track it as it travels across the blogosphere.
4) Tag at least five more blogs with links.
5) Don’t forget to leave a comment on the tagged blogs with an invitation to play.
6) Have fun.
I do not make these rules.

Zombabies stardom
Come to the fearless film fest
Ask me a question


More news on Zombabies

With a super-tight selection of only six short films being allowed to screen, each one representing a different catagory, and dozens of films submitted, Zombabies was selected as the only narrative piece to screen and was given the Best Narrative at the upcoming Fearless Film Festival in Fort Worth, as a part of the 18th Annual Main Street Arts Festival.

I may be going to the fest to be part of the Zombabies posse and participate in some Q & A sessions (if the director wants). Working out the details with the Director. I, admittedly, get a huge geeky thrill out of the prospect of appearing at a fest as an actor affiliated with a movie and doing Q & A’s and such.


“Zombabies” has a little buzz going on!

I was in a short film called “Zombabies” a while back and it’s getting some fun buzz going on. For example, a great review at Dread Central. Apparently it’s also been well received at several horror festivals. One group of my friends was at one of these festivals and was quite surprised when suddenly there I was on the big screen. There has been some talk of me possibly appearing in some of the future episodes.
Pretty cool stuff!


Coolest Desktop wallpaper site ever
You can download “low quality” versions of all the wallpapers for free or you pay a membership for “high quality” versions. I say “low quality” in quotes because even the free versions look awesome to me. I’m so impressed that I think I’ll spring for a lifetime membership to support them. Right now they’re running an Easter special of $19.99 for life.


Phrase Express

I was using a text replacement program called “Texter” and a program called “Ditto” that let me paste from a list of things I’d copied recently instead of just pasting the last thing copied. I had some problems with Texter causing issues so I ditched it. Today I found “Phrase Express” which replaces Texter and Ditto and does a whole hell of a lot more! You can use it to easily insert text, auto-correct, launch programs and web pages, paste from a list of recently copied things, execute macros and a whole lot more.
For example, every time I send out a letter to submit for cast or crew, instead of manually typing the same thing every time I can now just type “cast@” or “crew@” and it inserts my entire cover letter. Or I can type “sig@” to insert my signature. The hotkeys or keywords are completely configurable by you. I put the “@” symbol on my keywords just so I don’t accidentally cause an insert without meaning to. If I wanted to I could also make a hotkey if I wanted to such as ctrl-alt-S for my signature, or windowskey+s, or any combination of ctrl-alt-shift-windows+any key.
Check out the website for a much better explanation of all the features. I’m totally digging it so far.



A nice change of luck
Hopefully this trend goes on
May we all prosper
