Get on the Bandwagon – Support Creative People

I love the power that the Internet gives to creative people to be able to produce art and entertainment and get it out there without bowing down to the bigwigs with money.  The Guild and Dr. Horrible’s Sing-a-Long Blog are so great.

Here is another great web-based project: Bandwagon

Social Media Emergency Win!! My blog has a secret admirer!!

Wowzers, holy Christmas, good golly and other PG exclamations of delight.  I was just casually checking my One Good Minute blog stats and was shocked to find the following:

Now, for some reason there is a steady stream of people searching for “rizzo the rat” that stumble onto my site, and I’m sure they are not all that impressed with what they find, but hey, that’s blogging, right?

But today someone actually searched for my blog by name.

By name!

What does it mean?  Probably nothing.  How does it make me feel?  Like I’m in eighth grade and I just found a secret admirer note in my locker.  Who are you?  How did you find out about me?  Do you really like me?  Like, like like me?

Which brings up another thought, if you want to stay on this train with me.  What do kids do today when they like each other?  Secret text?  Facebook poll?  YouTube love video?  Anonymous tweet?

I think that in this world of technology and information sharing it is becoming more and more difficult to be anonymous.  I don’t think anything has been invented that replaces the good old paper poll.

Not even this (but go ahead and vote anyway).

Please leave any additional secret admirer notes in the comments below.

L’il Zombies

Some of the funnest movies come from putting a horror slant on a simple thing.

  • Horror + Comedy = Shawn of the Dead or Zombieland
  • Horror + Animals = Piranha
  • Horror + Dolls = Child’s Play
  • Horror + Children = Children of the Corn

Now I know that last one has been done before, but I have a new take on it.  I figure that I had better jump on it before Romero tears through it as he attempts to supersaturate the zombie movie genre to the point of no return.

Zombies + Children

Not just that one child zombie that makes you jump and then feel bad for child poverty.  All child zombies, all the time.

I did not feel I had time for a spec script, so I went ahead and shot a scene.

I call it L’il Zombies.
