All the Kings horses

wait... sideline before I get started, I just thought about that poem. Why would the kings horses be trying to put an egg back together. No wonder they didn't have any luck. Who ever heard of a cloven footed animal successfully undertaking fine-detailed restoration work?

Errr; Now; What was I going to post about? I'm sure it wasn't a lament about the pathetic funding in arts conservation courses at equine universities, and I don't think it was about osteoporotic eggs with little balance or sense to stay away from high places...

In that case it was probably about projects that seem impossible. For the first time ever I actually sat down and wrote out all the uncompleted projects, whatever their stage of conception, that I would genuinely like to complete one day.

I have;

1 Film Course (at least)
2 Web serials
5 Short Films
2 TV shows
8 Feature films
2 Features films which would have ongoing Mini-series
1 Childrens book (at least)
1 Novel
2 Music Videos
1 Scultpure
1 Family project that I promised to do.

That appears to be 26 projects I want to complete... and all I've done is some scribbling that doesn't relate to any of it.



I'm not sure I should be allowed any more ideas until I cross at least one of those off the list. Or... and this may just be the best plan... I should stop procrastinating by writing lists and get on with it.

Actually, this list is the first step in prioritising my projects. I really didn't realise I had that many... *whew* I'm in for quite a ride if I can get a quarter of it done this life.

Take: 32

Osteoporotic eggs ... you're cracking me up *!*

Chuck the list and scribble away - I like this one better than that bandido squirrel ...

'Cracking me up', HA!

Are you MAD Bimbimbie? Throw the list away? MADness I say! I haven't listed any of the fanciful ideas that I probably would never produce. Not that I believe I will finish all these projects but it's nice to have the ideas there if the 'audience' is keen for them.

I think this drawing is a vague copy of someone else's efforts that I saw somewhere. I often do that as 'keep fingers practised' exercise and to widen my influences.

The movie monster posts are complete, Rita. They were to record how I made him... you want to see him in action? He's for one of my web-serials. I guess I could do a teaser with him in it. I may, may, post some of the tests. Maybe some of the unsuccessful ones.

1. Do it!
2. cooool, as long as they're not environmentally damaging because of a chemical used.
3. Do x if x equeals 'it'! Now start thinking String or M-Theory
4. A worthy achiement.

Go with fanciful Rich ... making lists is ok but they are a little controlling don't you think? They sit there on the page looking back at you waiting transferring all that negative pressure of deadlines until one day a tick sits alongside and you move on to the next and repeat.

Fanciful flow Rich, let your creations begin*!* ...

Who's MAD and do I know her*?*

I think there's a difference between controlling and focusing. After all it's a only a list of names of things that each take years of to complete from conception to final product. There's plenty of time for fancifulness in between getting these things done :) After all, the creations have already begun, but some require hundreds of people to reach completion. That takes some planning.

I'm not sure if you know her, but she's MAD in a good way I think.

Can never have enough ition Bimbimbie :)

Although I have to say the 40 degrees yesterday without air conditioning certainly sent all my plans for the day onto the couch in front of the fan to watch movies instead. Blech.

Well, I was hoping to see the Movie monster in action.

Anyway, as for projects, I listed the personal ones that that I'd like to do. I've got all this other stuff I've committed myself too because I do a lot of volunteer work & belong to a lot of committees. Projects won't do themselves & as I sit here typing away they are calling...gotta go!

I have too many irons in the fire my own self, so I know of what you speaketh.

As far as the egg business, all I can think of when you mentioned horses is some comedian talking about the Easter bunny - he said "who in their right mind would give eggs to an animal that hops??"

Maybe you could combine elements of everything on your list into one project, there would probably be no other project like it in the whole world.

Rita, I hope to see the Movie monster in action too. I'll certainly keep people updated as to the running of the project. At the moment I'm waiting for this idiot Director called Rich attach an actor.

Go!

Yup, 40 degrees, South Australia is currently into its fifth day of over 40. Woo Hoo, it's now officially a heat wave. Luckily in Sydney it's now mostly 28 to 35, a little more bearable.

It's been so hot for so long I've forgotten what freezesssssssss feels like.

Phos, Luckily these irons burn slow and long. I don't feel any pressure to get them done tomorrow. Planning for them is a good idea though.

The Easter Bunny uses his magic goodness to protect the eggs. Doesn't that silly comedian know that.

It's been very busy Ces, what with my office being renovated and Australia Day, etc. I haven't been to anyone's blog... Awards you say! How very nice of you. I don't believe in awards but it is always nice that others take the time to mention one. Cheers!

I'm in Australia, Wildlife G, I aaam in an enchanted land. Well, except for those pesky Kangaroos. They're not so enchanting. No table manners at all in fact.

Nick is a bit of a hero of mine. He, and many other small operators plugging away at their projects, are a constant source of inspiration.

Ticharu! I'm shocked at the implication. I didn't drown no Zebra... he... slipped?

*Sigh* Bimbimbie I must admit, I am not really a leettle burd. it is a fake beak. Underneath is a portal to another world... there's a lot of boogers in that world. Thankfully this horrid heat is keeping them dry.

Unfortunately, I am often wrong. But that's because I often test many different ideas on how things can and should be done. Being wrong is a great learning exercise.
