An Early Valentine's Card

Agnes is gone & I miss her. AND I just bought a Nikon D5000 which, among other things, films in 1280x720 24p on a 22mm sensor, so I convinced her to let me buy it. Then she went away to the States for two weeks & told me to send her a video to show off my new toy. So "Thrown Together Productions" does it again with Raph doing the filming this time, Peter doing the mix and an electric guitar track in the second half of the song, Getting Lucky, which I wrote the day before yesterday, on Monday in the shower, alone(which gives me an idea for my next video...)

Once again I would like to thank the Lord for the ideas He lets me get. Please, nobody tell Him how it goes to my head or I might not get too many more. :) People treat me like I'm this wellspring of funny ideas, but I swear I ALWAYS feel like my feet are touching the bottom & I'm just making the biggest splash I can out of what's left of a puddle. So thank God for His refills.

Not A Real Blog Post

Another episode in Why I Don't Blog, this month's latest excuse is because I've been busy over the Christmas/New Years season. From October & on we've been working on creating, selling & performing our Christmas show, then since Christmas we've been working on editing the footage for a DVD & trailer so we can start promoting it for next year. The "DVD" is a tedious work in progress--God bless Raph, he's been doing most of the work--but I'm gonna post the trailer which I personally had a lot more fun creating. Maybe because it was more of a low-commitment sort of project. Unfortunately, it's all in French, but it should give you an idea of what's been keeping us all busy here for the last few months.

As if people still visit this blog:
'A la Poursuite de l'Etoile' translates literally as 'In Pursuit Of A Star', but more properly as 'Following a Star'. It's the story of two children; a poor boy (Patric Ross) who is sad because he won't be getting any presents for Christmas, & a rich girl (Heloise Verger) who is so rich she already has all the presents & gifts she could ever want & has nothing to look forward to for Christmas. They both wish on a star to be able to find Christmas cheer. A magical singing doll (Benedicte Ross)& her wishing star (Agnes Verger) offer to guide the children to a treasure which, if found can be theirs for free, but is worth more than all the money in all the world. The treasure has been hidden to protect it from the evil & selfish Mr. Jagadin Shmoole (Me), who discretely if not clumsily, stalks them in their song & dance journey which takes them around the world where they both experience & share the magic & happiness of Christmas...

Dancers & extras: Angelique Verger, Celeste Verger, Christophe Verger, Olivier Verger (Technician)& Rachel Angus.
