I had the funniest dream! I was visiting Clint's ranch. I got in by sitting in front of a fence and got hit by a golf ball. Then he came to fetch it and took me inside. He was like a dad to me. I told him that my dad has been a fan of his for 40 years, and I'm following his footsteps. I also said that my mom always wonders how this happened, I'm interested in all the same things than my dad ;D He laughed heartily when I told this. We were in the backyard when I got hit by another golf ball. It was his neighbours golf ball. Guess who lived next to him.. Jack Nicholson!  :D

I know.  :-X I always have crazy dreams. This wasn't even as weird as they usually are.  ;D

I had a funny at work the other day.  So some guests had wandered out of California Adventure (DCA) into the esplanade, the entry plaza between California Adventure and Disneyland, with some bright yellow cups.  Bright yellow cups are only sold at DCA when someone purchases alcohol.  They're not suppose to leave California Adventure because of our liquor licenses.  Well regardless we were having a heavy exit at DCA because the park was closing so we were trying to get everyone out.  Well some of these cups came through, which happens.  When a cast member (employee) sees these cups outside of DCA they are suppose to dispose of the alcohol right away.  Well a cast member saw these guests with the alcohol and didn't take it away but instead told them that they needed to consume the alcohol there.  This posed a few problems, one it violated our policy with the cups and liquor licenses, as well it is illegal, in California anyway, to consume alcohol in public.  At this point myself and my friend, we're both leads, had to come out and deal with the situation.  My friend, named James who is a tough lead but very gay, approaches the group first tells them that they need to dispose of their alcohol now.  We're then informed of what our cast member did, which was very infuriating.  James was able to take two cups of beer away from the group, he handed them to me.  One gentlemen in the group was very rude and wanted to keep drinking his beer, to which we both said no.  James took his beer was about to pour it into the trash when the gentlemen took it back from him and said "no, I'm going to finish it!".  James then got very angry took the beer away from him, and said "oh, no, no, no, you're not because it is ILLEGAL to consume alcohol in public, goodbye!".  We walked off and they watched as we dumped their beers in the trash.  We were very nice and allowed them to come into Disneyland, when we could denied them entry.  But they were quite upset with us, however, we felt quite accomplished for holding up Disney and California state laws.   ;)

I don't miss my theme park days...I'm surprised there wasn't security guards around.  Sadly, people (especially a bunch of dudes drinking beer that don't understand that others are just doing their job) are generally more cooperative when they are intimidated right from the start.

Not that this is endless or pointless, but my latest film project is on youtube!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wapm-LD1CMU

It's only the trailer of the actual movie.  Finally, I can show off my film skills, ha!  

To give a synopsis, I did a documentary about my best friend's band and their trying to get to the top.  My best friend is the one who plays guitar and is in the red shirt, and in the individual interview the one with the red background.  Anyway, thought I would share.   :D

Yeah, that's very professional! O0 Nice job!!

Neither is this, but as an artist you might appreciate it. It's long so watch it when you have some time.

This video shows the winner of "Ukraine’s Got Talent",  Kseniya Simonova, 24,  drawing a series of pictures on an illuminated sand table showing how ordinary people were affected by the German invasion during World War II.  Her talent, which admittedly is a strange one, is mesmeric to watch.
 
 The images, projected onto a large screen, moved many in the audience to tears and she won the top prize of about $130,000.00
 
 She begins by creating a scene showing a couple sitting holding hands on a bench under a starry sky, but then warplanes appear and the happy scene is obliterated.
 
 It is replaced by a woman’s face crying, but then a baby arrives and the woman smiles again. Once again war returns and Miss Simonova throws the sand into chaos from which a young woman’s face appears.
 
 She quickly becomes an old widow, her face wrinkled and sad, before the image turns into a monument to an Unknown Soldier.
 
 This outdoor scene becomes framed by a window as if the viewer is looking out on the monument from within a house.
 
 In the final scene, a mother and child appear inside and a man standing outside, with his hands pressed against the glass, saying goodbye.
 
 The Great Patriotic War, as it is called in Ukraine, resulted in one in four of the population being killed with eight to 11 million deaths out of a population of 42 million.

That is so amazing CvW and moving.  I was really stunned watching it and I think it was a deserved win as it was so different.   Thank you for posting it.

  Stalin ruined the Ukraine more than anyone else.  He basically starved them during the 1930s.  Its one of the many tragedies of the WWII-era (1930s/1940s) that didn't get its due press in my school history books.

  The total death toll is estimated at up to 8 million, and all thanks to an artificial famine.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holodomor
