Fred is a personal stop motion short. It got finished thanks to many friends, bank loans, and credit cards. I devoted spare time between jobs, moving the sets and puppets from one city to the next zig-zagging the west coast from LA to Seattle.

Feline Fearless Leaderre: #203 Jolo5309 There's lots of "light" stuff that might hold their interest on the board/card game front. If they're competitive with each other there is stuff like "Kung Fu Fighting" (Card game emulating Hong Kong action film combat) that can be played by 2-6. There is also a very nice spectrum of cooperative board games where the players are working together to beat ...
This 100% hand-made, action-packed short film tries to keep up as a Texas Sheriff hilariously massacres a race of clumsy aliens.

Decatur DebOfA is so issues-oriented and so confined by its 501 rules that I'm looking for an organization with a bit more bite. Jim Messina moved out to start such--Turn Texas Blue. On the other hand, OfA will teach a bunch of people why Citizens United is a bad idea.

certainly made for a startling video: police, lights ablaze, pull up to local churches. Once inside, they march up to the pulpit and place the pastor preaching there under arrest, in front of the congregation. The men of the cloth are perp-walked out of the church with handcuffs on. This very scenario created a brief uproar - first at the Akron, Ohio, churches ...
Malaysia's military believes it tracked a missing jetliner by radar over the Strait of Malacca, far from where it last made contact with civilian air traffic control off the country's east coast, a military source told Reuters. In one of the most baffling mysteries in recent aviation history, a massive search operation for the Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777-200ER, now in its fourth day, ...
Add another male lawmaker to the list of those who've made an eyebrow-raising rape comment. Missouri state Sen. David Sater (R) is sponsoring Senate Bill 519, which would amend the current waiting period to have an abortion from 24 hours to 72 hours. Left out of that bill is an emergency exception for cases of rape. "If a woman decides not to go ...
I mentioned this in the page on the American Spectator Article. Some quotes: The film appeals particularly to white liberals who love feeling good about feeling bad about white Western society, and 12 Years a Slave certainly makes them feel bad about white society, while getting nowhere near to the heart of the matter at hand. This Vincent Cooper character is the the kind ...
There's a stunning disconnect between what the GOP says about our economy and its actual current condition. Put succinctly, the Republicans (virtually all of them, not just the tea sippers) are lying through their teeth about the state of the economy. Wouldn't it be nice to live in a country where facts mattered more than blind hatred? Where ignorance wasn't something to be proud ...
Dinesh D'Souza, the filmmaker behind 2016: Obama's America who is out on $500,000 bond for allegedly violating campaign finance laws, was at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington on Friday to unveil a new trailer for his upcoming release, America, a movie that imagines the United States lost the Revolutionary War and therefore never existed. The trailer, obtained by The Hollywood Reporter, ...
A good piece at Newsday by Cathy Young: U.S. Critic Blind to Putin Media Control. Do some critics of U.S. government policies that may encroach on civil liberties give anti-American foreign states a pass on far worse abuses? The latest subject of such a controversy is Glenn Greenwald, the journalist who has worked with whistle-blower Edward Snowden to disclose the National Security Agency's surveillance ...
For once I don't have much to say about the story I'm posting, because I simply cannot imagine the pain Peter Lanza feels in having a son who was a mass murderer. The father of Sandy Hook Elementary School shooter Adam Lanza has spoken publicly for the first time to make the startling claim that he wishes his son had never been born. Giving ...
The teenage girls in the Duggar family aren't just waiting for marriage to have sex, they've vowed not to have their first kisses until their wedding days. In their new book, "Growing Up Duggar," Jill, Jessa, Jana and Jinger Duggar, of TLC's "19 Kids and Counting," divulge their rules of "courtship," and what it's like being from such a large family.

In an era when we've all got GPS in our pockets, OnStar in our cars and the NSA tracking anyone, anywhere, it is still possible-although rare-for an airliner to seemingly vanish. That appears to be what happened to Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, which disappeared about an hour after leaving Kuala Lumpur for Beijing on Friday night. As of Monday, search and rescue teams ...
I need to post this since I propagated the original Der Spiegle story here. This debunks the "European" linkage headlined in the story. All of the genes are Asian / Siberian in origin. H/T to Freetoken who pointed out the shoddy reporting back then in the comments. It appears that the usual Solutrean Hypothesis / Solutrean Truther crowd at work, and underneath it all ...
The renewed death of Mr. Moreno, 40, whose nickname was "The Craziest One," will surely add to his legend, particularly in Michoacán State, in western Mexico, where he was strongest and where those gangs have terrorized communities with killings, rapes, extortions and kidnapping. Mr. Moreno secured a particular place among drug and organized crime capos for his affinity for Christian-style verse, collected in ...
Earlier today, Lawhawk noted that Adorama was having a contest where you're to enter your best image from last year. Since the voting is Facebook "Likes" based, my taste in photography has a snowballs chance at the devil's prom ;) But on the other hand, as it has been noted, you can not win if you do not play the game. So after sorting ...
Our Goals According to the 2013 UNICEF Report on Improving Child Nutrition - The Achievable Imperative for Global Progress, one-third of the world's under nourished children are in India and an estimated 61 million, half of the total child population in the country, are stunted due to chronic undernutrition. While progress towards reducing child underweight in India has been made, it has been ...
"The World's Only Reliable News," better than Russia Today and the Drudge Report combined! BOLSHAYA YELNIA - An all-female religious sect believe that Vladimir Putin is the reincarnation of St. Paul the Apostle. The religious sect of the Russian Orthodox church consists entirely of women, who meet in a small three story brick building in Bolshaya Yelnia, a small town near the Volga River. ...
Alas, our next generation of conservative leaders are not chanting, "Amer-i-ca! Amer-i-ca!" They are, instead, chanting, "F**k O-bama! F**k O-bama!" And I hang my head. So, now, children at the hotel, parents, staff, tourists - both foreign and domestic - and every other conceivable variety of guest who happens to be staying at the Gaylord National hotel during CPAC 2014 has a skewed, ...
The Con­fer­ence Board of Canada has is­sued a re­port ti­tled Re­form­ing Dairy Sup­ply Man­age­ment: The Case for Growth, which pretty much con­demns Canada's sys­tem of sup­ply man­age­ment of dairy prod­ucts. Au­thors, Michael Grant, Richard Barichello, Mark Liew, and Vi­jay Gill, say their re­port "makes the case for growth and sug­gests an eq­ui­table way to wind down sup­ply man­age­ment of dairy prod­ucts. ..."

This is incredibly sad. The poor baby did nothing to deserve this. I hope they actually do find a cure and find it soon. The sooner they're able to cure her, the greater the chance that they'll save her life. A second baby born with the AIDS virus may have had her infection put into remission and possibly cured by very early treatment -- ...
