Making Time Mar 11

You will never find time for anything, you must make it. ~ Charles Buxton

This photo comes courtesy of my mom’s blog Proverbial Beauty. Despite her very busy schedule, she finds a way to post one of her marvelous pictures, complete with an appropriately thought-provoking quote, every single day.

As a writer, I am particularly inspired by today’s quote (and my mom’s work ethic — go mom!).

How about you? Are you making the time to write?

Oscar Themed Links Mar 07

Hurt Locker (Tavis Coburn)In anticipation of the 82nd Academy Awards celebration tonight, I’ve collected a few cool Oscar themed links:

* Tavis Coburn, of The Dutch Uncle Agency, created vintage style movie posters for all the British Academy Film Awards nominees (which are also up for Oscars).

* All of the Oscar nominated Animated Shorts are online. In my opinion, Logorama gets top marks for a highly original, hilarious, and sometimes shocking, tale. This movie may result in a lifetime of trademark infringement lawsuits for the creator, but that’s a small price to pay for an Academy Award nomination right?

Listed according to my ranking:

1) “Logorama” Nicolas Schmerkin (Part 2 here)
2) “A Matter of Loaf and Death” Nick Park
3) “Granny O’Grimm’s Sleeping Beauty” Nicky Phelan and Darragh O’Connell
4) “French Roast” Fabrice O. Joubert
5) “The Lady and the Reaper (La Dama y la Muerte)” Javier Recio Gracia

* Sandra Bullock (nominated for a Best Actress Oscar) brings humor and perspective to the Razzies by showing up to accept her award for Worst Actress.

* There were two trilogies in which all three films were nominated for Best Picture. Can you name them? Here are 10 of the “Best Facts about the Best Pictures.”
