Clareified

Where does the good go

Final birthday thanks

Thanks to the amazon largesse of the Jakes and baby Max and his parents (wanna see a picture of him on an airplane? No? Too bad: babymax)

I am getting a home television studio. Despite the cries and petitions being circulated by one three letter named lady whose name starts with T and ends with e and has an a in the middle, this is an AWESOME development. Hater.

When I return to blogging (uh, yeah, I’m still not back. This is an illussssiiioooonnn illllooooooooosssssssssssssiiiooon) I want to be more attentive and professional with my writing and posting, (ahem, thank you Alceste for noticing). So, we need an outlet for the lazy crazy!

Thus, we bring you Clareifeyes! (Named by this blog’s godfather, Peter, the totally not a donut stealer. )

On Liz Wheaton’s (though I think I’m more partial to ‘Eliza Wheaton’) suggestion, I’m getting a Kodak HD filmadoohickey (um? Camera?) and a tripod and remote control and extra rechargeable batteries! Wheee.)

Can anyone recommend easy to handle film editing software — preferably free and easily downloadable from the internets?

Also, what type of stuff do we want to see? I can write sitcoms, I can do reality, I can take you on tours of Brooklyn, ohhh…you can watch TV with me! Maybe I’ll do a cooking show for people who can’t cook which involves lots of mixing and microwaving. It’ll be exciting!

    Um, I should be scared right?

    I’m going to be nice and give you an advance warning – if said Kodak HD filmadoohickey is pointed in my direction, it will be grabbed and smashed.

    Maybe you should take a class at BCAT:

    Oh Mary, Mary, Mary it’s called Clareifeyes, not Maryeyes or whatever lame name your TV show would have. It is about me! Starring me! Written by me! And maybe my bears. Sometimes. Upstaging camera hogs.

    While I’m a little scared because of what I have seen previously (Double Rainbow parody still makes shudder.) I am very excited by this development! Whole new blog or just a new section on this one?

  4. Petitedov Says:

    Also, I love the lazy crazy and will miss it in the written form. #poutingatAlceste

    Heeeyyy double rainbow parody was a CLASSIC!

  6. Mary Says:

    I understand Clareifeyes (and can’t wait to see what you do with your video camera), thus the links for BCAT. I still think you will try and turn the camera on those around you now and then.

    ; )

    Dictionary.com word of the day – busticate! Appropriate.

    Petitedov: I didn’t cause the change! I just noticed it (particularly on IHO)

  8. Angela Says:

    This is exciting news.

    Max really classes up your blog.
    And I’m sad to admit that double rainbow parody WAS a classic.
    I laughed my ass off.
