An Interesting New Project

This is not a Budget related post – it more of an ARG post.  Though – it’s not quite that either.

Some friends of mine are working on a new project, which has encouraged us to have an ’emergency budget meeting’ and back our first kickstarter project.

Ok – I guess it IS a budget related post. 🙂

Anyway, in the past I’ve blogged about friends who made a feature film (Between Notes). These same friends are launching another new project – and the Kickstarter runs for another 12 days.  If you like Stories, Technology, Creativity, Storytelling, Real-life interaction, and trying to push the boundaries on how we use media to tell narratives, I’d recommend you check it out.

It’s setting is London – on the closing day of the Opening Olympics. It’s told through an App & serialized content (first of which drops on Aug 12 – the literal last day of the Olympics).  It follows the life of 7 characters.  Title: Seven Poets and the Assassin’s Secret.

Relevant Podcast

Do you listen to the Relent podcast? Did you hear them mention my tweet?

So for the last several years, I’ve subscribed to the Relevant podcast and/or the print magazine.

And a just about two weeks ago, my favorite podcast mentioned my tweet (indirectly). To hear the podcast, check it out here.

About 1.5 minutes in, you will hear them mention this tweet.

It made my day.

And everything after the first minute and a half is worth a listen as well.

Enjoy!

Angry Birds…

I probably should not admit this – but like millions of others, I LOVE angry birds.

This week, I finished off the original game, getting 3 stars on all levels.

I had some itunes money, so I just purchased Angry Birds Rio this week as well. It’s fun and I think the graphics are better.

Also, my take on Angry Birds Seasons — It’s so much harder! Than the original or Rio.  I’m a bit stuck on some Christmas levels.

Try 2 – iMovie

It didn’t work. But I’m trying again, and this time I figured out how to add titles screens.

And hopefully my computer won’t automatically turn off again. 😦

In other things, it’s still super cold. My house is cold and my hands are freezing. It makes working on the computer harder.

iMovie

I’m working on a iMovie. My friend Lisa (who I asked you to pray for) was unable to attend our wedding. The day of, one of my house party members took about 30 minutes of film for Lisa of the event and different individuals saying hello. I now have copies of the video files and am attempting to put them all together and burn them to DVD.  We’ll see how that goes.

I might have to upload a few clips here.
