I'M HOT BUT LATER I'LL BE COLD

OK the thumbnail is just because.

So anyway, It's freaking hot in here. The sun came over to shine in the window and came our from behind the clouds, so now It's actually hot in here.

Speaking of hot and cold, it was 80F in here last night and I had a blanket over me watching TV. See the Fibro seems to mess up your ability to realize you are hot or cold.

The other way sometimes happens in winter when someone picks me up to go out and I have my jacket open and it's -35F out there. The look at me like I'm crazy and I tell them I'm hot. Being that most of my friends are smart asses, I get interesting replies to that.

Anyway, I think I actually need to open the window and see if it will cool down some. I got this strange thing about running the AC you see, as a child we had one and Mom had this problem with telling us it was way too expensive to run it. Thus we always wondered why we even had one.

This is topped off with the fact that after we moved into a different house there was central air and it was on all summer long. So the bigger more expensive to run one was not too much money though? Oh well. No logic to a lot of things my folks once said to me so...

In any event off I go.

FUN WITH BEANS, NOT!

 This has been food 3 times a day for like 2 days. But now I'm close to the end of it. Oh wait - 2 more days of it cooking in the slow cooker. God this is dull, but I'm sticking to it kind of well this week, so if I don't lose weight, I'm eating a large pizza to drown my sorrows. Oh wail, I don't have enough for a "good pizza" just enough for a crappy one - never mind. I do have enough for 15 bags of chips though. Sooo. I'm kidding, I'll be good.
So the 3 feeds yesterday did not do it as I stayed up kind of late watching movies on the DVR. Well this is curried corn with roasted garlic and honey sauce as a base for the curry. Well I don't recommend you do this EVER. It sucked, but I did not think I was going to die - so I finished it. Maybe if I hit it with some hot sauce it would have sucked less? Oh well, will never know.

By the way if you are a repeat visitor to the blog, how to you like how many times I splice a sentence in them? Or fragment one. HEHEHE.

TWITCH - SPLOOK - OOPS

OOPS. So I just splooked the coffee on the floor again. I often wonder why the carpet in a place filled with people who tend to do this kind of thing is a very light brown (off white) color. I mean when it dries and it already has it still shows up.

See I have this thing where I twitch for no reason now and then. I'm kind of sure people have seen me do it with my head in a video now and then. But the right hand is the worst of it. It leads to spills all the time. I have taken to holding the cup out in front of me a ways so I don't end up with hot coffee on my foot, but I do manage to get my hand.

The worst of this twitch thing seems to be my eyes for annoyance. I'm kind of sure I've never had it happen on camera or when out with friends. It seems to happen only when I'm reading something. My eyes will dart back and forth several times and I will lose my place.

Now this is not a common every day thing for me in fact I can go months until it happens again. That being said the hand twitch is almost always when I'm holding something. Also seems to have never happened when I'm holding with both hands. But coffee hot and I don't want to use both hands as it would hurt the other hand.

Oh well. Now I'm wondering how many people think by the thumbnail that this has to be with bladder leaks or a pet? Oh well off to sort out some dishes in the kitchen.

HIDDEN SHORT FILMS - WHY I WILL NEVER SEE THEM

There is a short film I been looking to see since I saw the article about it last year. It's called "Gas Can" and is about racism in Saskatchewan in the 1970's. I've looked long and hard on the net to be able to actually see this film and there is no place where I can watch it.

I find it interesting that a great deal of times when someone comes out with a great short film in my aria that almost no one will ever see it. Why is this? Because they only show it in select short film festivals and NOT online on their web page or on Vimeo or YouTube.

I would think that the idea of expressing your self as an artist would be appealing to get it out to as many people as you can. This does not seem to be the case most of the time. In fact you are lucky if you ever see any of the short films that are produced.

This is just one example of this of course. There are many others I would love to have seen over the years and was out of luck ever time. It's like an exclusive club where you only let a select few people ever see the content then it vanishes into the night forever.

Honestly I know a few people who produce content in the form of short films. They put them on YouTube for the world to see and promote them. But the majority see to want it on a closed circuit where people need to pay to see it, even then only in small numbers.

It's like people who have a closed group on Facebook and say it's trying to effect change and keeps the numbers to 20 or less. Sure you can exchange ideas with like minded people, but the message is hidden in your circle and never gets out to the public. I'm left wondering what the actual point of most short films are in the light of this practice.

Also got to wonder being that most short films I hear about are on the topic of people who are generally poor, why they chose to only show them at events you need to pay to see. It's like saying to the world, "I have something to say" then quietly saying it to 3 people in the shadows and telling them not to say anything. But oh well.
