Last night I did some cooking for the Super Bowl. I made a batch of my chicken and sausage gumbo. The Sunday Film Series has slowed down a bit, so I decided to made a video of the process. Why wait until next Sunday?
My latest cinematic wonder, making Chicken and Sausage Gumbo, is less than a minute:
Writing returns with the next post.
Remember Christopher Cross? I think he was from the ’80′s, wasn’t he?
He had a hit song, Ride Like The Wind.
This isn’t about that song, it is about the other one.
A few weeks ago, I posted a video of my concept of the ultimate lawn mower. It was not only self-propelled, but it was also self-motivated. Unfortunately, manufacturers haven’t beaten a path to my door. I’d say that was their loss, but really, it is my loss too. I was the one mowing again yesterday afternoon.

Filmed near my office, today’s film involves a cast of thousands. The entire cast is made up of extras. Take that, actors!
The intersection portrays, well, a busy intersection.
After I shot this film, I went back to my office. Someone said they saw me standing on the hill looking like I was shooting a video. I told him that I was shooting an artistic depiction of the area we worked in. He laughed, and said “where do you come up with this stuff?” Sometimes the truth is enough, isn’t it?

Yes, it is Friday and my film series runs on Sundays. I’ll get things back on schedule next week. For this week, please pretend it is Sunday and read on.
People know I am all about science. Physics, astronomy, whatever it takes.
When friends look for me, they know to look in the laboratory. This week I spent a little extra time in the lab, considering the big questions in physics and astronomy. Questions such as “why is the moon following me?” and “if I am strong enough to lift my own weight, can I sit in a chair, pick myself up and fly away?” Read the rest of this entry »
The host city has shown itself to be quite ready and the athletes have begun competition. How could I not do a Sunday film in tribute to the games in London? You are right, I could not pass on that opportunity.
Besides, I had this wooden artist’s model that I bought months ago. I had to do something with it so I could stop wondering why I bought it.
For my newer readers, your subscription to Blurt gets you written posts on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Sunday brings one of these stop action videos created with a Lego movie app for as long as I can think of things to do with it. I want you to get your money’s worth!
About ten years ago, I was helping put on a juggling festival. We were giving a set of water injected tennis balls to everyone who attended. Filling a tennis ball with water gives it the perfect weight for juggling. The water also keeps the ball from bouncing away when it is dropped.
This really has nothing to do with what this week’s film is about. Read the rest of this entry »
This week’s film is highly significant. The significance isn’t that I created it using the largest, heaviest props I’ve ever worked with. Well, the size of the props is part of why this is a big deal, but it isn’t the most significant thing about it.
The really big deal about this film is that I manipulated all the props with my mind.
I have such a headache today from doing that. Sometimes an artist like me must pay a high cost for our craft. Read the rest of this entry »
