First off, I made a ZOMBIE VIDEO! It’s the first thing I’ve ever written, directed, and produced.
Secondly I am a woman entering the next phase of her life, hopefully with an open heart and open mind.
Although uncertainty and trepidation are tagging along behind me, I hope to continue to be led by my desire for creativity and inspiration.
As you can see, I have an eclectic taste in what I find touching and amusing, but I hope somewhere in the array of what I share, you’ll find something that you like.
Welcome to my little corner of the world. I hope you’ll stay a while and share this new journey with me.
I’ve started to be a bit lax in doing this, but when I’m not sure what to do on any given day, this is what I’ll shoot for:
Snapshot Sony Sunday
Movie and Music Monday
TMI or Tidbit Tuesday
Weepy or Witchy Wednesday
(now called Weighty Wednesday)
Fun or Funny Friday
Spaghettios Dude Saturday
Yay! I’ve been tagged!…tagging below! Tagging: roguesandevolution, opticalexample, the-vallevette-touch , withthedungeonsandthedragons, thaladyk, carolsnooze,…

As you can see I have a lot of movie soundtrack and 80’s music collections. Not sure what a person can tell by the music selected here. I’d love to hear a few theories. I’m not sure how Ahn tagged people and it gave me a notification, but here goes nothing.
I made this a year ago for Froggie’s birthday and damn if it’s not hard to try and reblog it again for you all to see. I had to take the original and put it on this date.
Anyway, I hope you all enjoy it again and that Froggie has a great day.
I now give you:
THE JOKER (To the same tune from the Steve Miller Band)
Some people call him the “Space Cowboy”, yeah.
Some call him the “Gangster of Love”.
Some people call him “Maurice” (woot wooo).
Cause he speaks of the pompatus of love.
People talk about him, baby.
Say he’s doin it wrong, doin it wrong.
Well don’t you worry baby, don’t worry.
Cause he’s right here, right here, right here right here at home.
He plays his music in the sun.
He gets his lovin’ on the run.
Wooo Hoooo Ooooooh.
(Cue psychadelic funk music.)
… were greatly ignored.
Sorry I haven’t been around much. Went to the State Fair yesterday and had a blast. I’m sore as hell today and it seems like I had about 2 days of tumblr material to go through last night and today, so I hope I didn’t miss anything important.
What parts I did gather were:
- CorgisandBoobs cutting his hair and now going bald.
- Balitosisx having to shave his beard and his farewell speech.
- TheFrogman getting some unnecessary flack for a post.
If I’ve missed anything else and anyone wants to let me know please do! I’ll be happy to privately sympathize or rejoice in anything that anyone wants to share.
In the meantime, here’s a picture of a brand new baby lamb from the fair.
With the start of a new month, I hopefully have a new chance to try some new things and improve on those I’ve already been working on. This is the start of my 5th month here on tumblr. During my time here I’ve managed to accrue 26 followers, although I’m pretty sure a handful of them are bots. I still keep them around, however, just to make me feel special. Thanks to thefrogman, I’ve also had the privilege to get a few posts in the hundreds and that was a nice feeling. I think it even broke my email, since I no longer seem to be getting updates when someone reblogs my stuff!
I know that it shouldn’t matter how many followers or reblogs I get. For the most part, I agree with not caring whether I have 100 or 10,000. But what would be nice, is to find more like-minded people that would enjoy interacting with me and we could bounce off creative ideas with each other. I see thefrogman doing that with people such as finalellipses and pleatedjeans, so I would love to find that same kind of camaraderie too.
I don’t want to turn this post into something whiny, but I did find it disappointing that none of my followers wanted to contact me and let me make them a gif. I thought at least a few people would take me up on my offer. Is it because no one actually saw those particular posts or are most of my posts that uninteresting that most pass them by without so much as a glance? Not all of my followers are like that. In spite of having hundreds, maybe thousands, to go through every day, thefrogman especially seems to take time out of his busy day to like some of my posts, which is why I’ve been known to dedicate gifs and photos to him.
So how do I find more like-minded people on tumblr? Anyone know? I suppose I could start trying to reach out to more people. I started doing that this last month, but very few ever replied back to my messages.
Maybe it’s not that great of an idea, but I’ve been thinking of maybe starting a secondary tumblr that would contain images from activity books. I would maybe do the same book for a month and go page by page. I would do a page every 24 hours, offering up the creative challenge, and then I would allow photo replies for those that do the coloring in or whatever is asked for that day. It would be pretty simple and childish, but I’m wondering if people would still find it fun and different.
I guess if anyone actually reads this blog and likes the idea, would you mind sending me a message in my ask box or replying here? I would love if people liked it so much I was able to get others to submit creative challenges, kind of like what thefrogman has done in the past. Maybe even a few artists could doodle up a black and white outline for others to color too and submit it or something.
So what do you think of the idea?
