Separation of Fun and Play

January 9, 2010

So we have sort of officially launched Pomfolio, and my portfolio is being organically created at http://briannaprivett.com using the String Theory theme and a couple of plugins. I like it, it does what it says on the box. Plus, this is the first time I’ve aggregated all the various stuff I put online in one Read more >>



Summertime

July 28, 2008

I’ve always felt this was by far the best arrangement of this song – I like the Zombies version a lot too.

Happy Halloween!!!

October 31, 2007

With the wildfires last week, I’m afraid I reserved my internet bandwidth for obsessive news refreshing, Utopian.net work, and over-diligent cupcake planning for the IF Show on Saturday. So it’s been awhile since the last movie post. I knew when I started this endeavor that I’d save this movie for last – it is easily Read more >>



Defining October

October 21, 2007

Bluebeard

October 12, 2007

This film was a surprising gem in a stack of $1 horror DVDs I had purchased – I found myself alone one night during a raging Midwestern thunderstorm, so I settled in with a bottle of wine and a sketchbook and soon found myself ignoring both in favour of John Carradine’s performance as Gaston.

Nosferatu!

October 10, 2007

Today’s scary movie (and a good idea for a lunch break) is Nosferatu, originally released in 1922, and just as horrifying today as it was then. If you’re a fan of Bram Stoker’s Dracula, this original film adaptation is a total treat.
