    • Thanksgiving movies?

      3 weeks ago

      SailorGirl81 Keeper Of Kittens

      So, last month I made two journals about good non-scary, non-gory Halloween movies. 


      And next month I plan on telling you about my favorite Christmas movies. 


      But here's the thing: There's another Holiday coming up in less than two weeks that I don't have ANY movies to watch!


      So, what do YOU recommend as a good Thanksgiving movie?? 

    • Halloween Movie List: Part Two

      1 month ago

      SailorGirl81 Keeper Of Kittens

      After I posted yesterday's list, other movie titles keep popping into mind. Plus I'm adding one that was suggested in the comments. 


      So here are some more not-so-scary fun-to-watch movies for Halloween!


      Coraline-I really meant to put this on yesterday's list as this is a great movie!


      Harvey-A man's best friend is a six foot tall Rabbit who likes to drink that only he can see. 


      Ghostbusters-The original as that's the only one I've seen 


      *Scooby Do-Movie or cartoons, those kids are always the center of some sort of spooky goings on


      *Casper - I am disappointed with the serious lack of mad scientist labs in the basements I am familiar with. This movie delivers a great one!


      The Haunted Mansion (with Eddie Murphy) This is a nice little romp into the gothic genre. 


      *Scared Shrekless-I hope they show this one on TV this year


      Young Frankenstein-Mel Brooks at his best. I suppose you should watch the original Boris Karloff Frankenstein movie to get all the references in the comedic remake. 


      Gremlins-I actually cheered for the Mom while watching this movie the first time


      Bedknobs and Broomsticks-Long before Murder She Wrote Angela Langsbury studied witch craft by mail. 


      *Halloween is Grinch Night-This is a tough one to find. It takes place before the events of How the Grinch Stole Christmas, when he was still a real grouch. 


      Paranorman-This is the movie that Monster House was trying to be. And it's stop motion animation!


      Return to Oz-This movie is so good it makes you wish the same team would have made movies from all the other Oz books. 


      Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit My sister always figures out what's going on before I do and this movie was no exception. 


      *ET The Extra Terrestrial- How did I forget the trick or treating scene near the end of the movie? It's pivotal!


      Hotel Transylvania-Another newer movie that turns the concept of monsters on its head. I never get tired of watching this one. 

    • Halloween Movie watch list

      1 month ago

      SailorGirl81 Keeper Of Kittens

      I am NOT a fan of scary or horror movies! However there are lots of fun, slightly scary movies out there and this is the season for watching them. 


      Freeform's programming just isn't doing it for me this year so I went into my library and pulled out a Halloween movie play list in no particular order:


      Harry Potter isn't on the list because I watch that all the time. 


      (I've put an * next to movies that actually take place during or have a Halloween scene in them)


      (Also I decided not to include thumbnails as this post is going to be too long as it is...)


      *Arsenic and Old Lace-It may be in black and white but it’s STILL a just scary enough movie. You can find this for free on-line.


      Labyrinth-A Goblin King, stolen baby and David Bowie singing: what’s NOT to love?


      Legend-Before he was famous Tom Cruise played a short shorts wearing forest man in an actually scary movie also starring Mia Sarah as a princess and Tim Curry as Darkness.


      Maleficent-Angelina Jolie as a really bad (or is she?) guardian of the supernatural world


      I Was a Penguin Zombie (Penguins of Madagascar)-A zombie penguin? C’mon who wouldn't like that?


      Toy Story of Terror-Wouldn't you be terrified to be sold on eBay?


      Igor-This little gem of a metaphorical movie is one of my favorites. If you've never seen it I highly recommend it!


      Beetlejuice-A stay-cation couple finds out a vacation away from home would have been better than a quick trip to their hardware store.


      Corpse Bride-This dark (really dark, all the colors are desaturated) movie manages to make us all want to die because life would be so much better.


      *It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown-even after all these years Linus STILL believes in the Great Pumpkin


      The Spiderwick Chronicles-I was actually scared watching this movie-shows what a light weight I am.


      *The Book of Life-someone finally made a movie about Dia de los Muertes


      The Box Trolls-everyone in this town is afraid to go out at night for good reason, the underground is full of trolls! This stop motion animation delight even gets the little girl right.


      *Practical Magic-Sandra Bullock doesn't want to be a witch but the supernatural world says otherwise.


      Mars Attacks-Just keep telling yourself this is supposed to be a comedy.


      *To Kill A Mockingbird-The climactic moment of the movie takes place on Halloween. Plus, any excuse to watch this movie again is a good one.


      The Birds-You’ll never look at birds sitting on a wire the same way again.


      The World, the Flesh and the Devil-Sometimes you are your own worst enemy and sometimes it’s the other guy.


      Rocky Horror Picture Show-A standard at midnight shows for decades. Feel free to throw rice and toast at your TV/monitor


      Ghost- Ever wonder what happens when the bad guy dies? Spoiler: there are ghosts in this movie.


      Little Shop of Horrors-This is a scary movie, or at least the original movie is. Watch the musical one with Rick Moranis and Steve Martin if you want the less scary version.


      *The Addams Family-For Halloween just the first movie fits the bill.


      The Witches-This movie about witches is from across the pond and even has Rowan Atkinson (Mr. Bean). Witches  are not anything like in Harry Potter. Cute mouse alert!


      *Hocus Pocus-Amok amok amok!


      Dark Crystal-There are no humans in this movie


      *Nightmare Before Christmas- Hey, Halloween is how the movie starts! Another stop motion wonder from Tim Burton


      *Monster House-An OK movie as I think they missed the mark somewhat.


      Wizards-If you’ve never seen this movie, why not?? A fascinating mix of traditional animation, roto scoping and actual film footage this film is definitely for adults.


      Spirited Away-sometimes you have to earn your freedom from the magical folks

      I’m an artist and like to paint people and animals. I've painted many people from the site and I also donate artwork to the annual Side Quest Charity auction that takes place right before RTX.  This year’s donation was recently featured on PoppyCock/Big Bite fan art Friday.

      In the past I have done two year-long artwork a day projects and posted the artwork in my journal.  If you have the patience you can check out my old entries. I also post new artwork as it is completed. I used to put it in my images, but find posting in the journal is easier.



      Well, it’s late in my FU day so I’ll finish here and say THANKS for checking out my profile!

      Draw everyday. Draw quickly. Don't expect every drawing to be a masterpiece, most of them will be awful. Learn from what doesn't work. Draw anything and everything.

        yeah... about that....were sending more troops BACK...
        1st Inf Div HQ just went back, and you can bet more are going...

        cant win a war without ground troops, everyone knows this (except Washington..), you need ground troops to occupy what you take to deny it from the enemy, kinda like punching a bucket of water, the air strikes scatter ISIS (the water) but when we stop or pullback they are fluid and just fill back in, we need forces to hold what we punch so that there is less and less for them to stand on.yeah... about that....were sending more troops BACK...

      What exactly goes into your style? What form do you use to get your works to look like they do?

        All those portraits are physical media? Wow, impressive work I must say.

        Hi, thanks for the question!

        I work almost entirely in physical media, especially for portraits (although I do some digital for non-portraits)

        I start by preparing a support. Lately I've been using mat-board. Preparation consists of doing random stuff to it. I might use paint spritzers, collage, layer multiple stencils, smear leftover paint or anything else I feel like doing including combinations of all of the above. Sometimes I have a color scheme I want to use.

        When it comes time to paint a portrait I go through the already prepared supports and pick one or prepare a new one specifically for that portrait if none of them appeal to me on that particular day.

        Right now I'm using acrylic paint or other water media although I also work in oils.

  • Questions answered by SailorGirl81

    Draw everyday. Draw quickly. Don't expect every drawing to be a masterpiece, most of them will be awful. Learn from what doesn't work. Draw anything and everything.

    I think by foot and by watercraft as there are a lot more waterways than there are rail road tracks. That would allow me access to more places without have to walk so far. But if I wanted to only travel from city to city I'd definitely go by train and by foot.

    Totally didn't see the question so sorry for the very late response.

    Man, so many memories it's hard to pick a favorite one....maybe sitting on the flight deck at the front of the carrier with my legs dangling over the bow as we finished transiting the Suez Canal north and re-entered the Med after a very long, hot time in the Persian Gulf.

    Well my profile picture is a little different. It's a digital combination of two paintings I did. One is an abstract (the orange and purple bits) and one an un-self portrait of me in a burnoose. I call it a un-self portrait because the instructor made me do a self portrait and I didn't want to so I took my glasses off, wrapped my head and face in the burnoose and looked in a mirror and painted away blurry vision and all. It actually came out pretty good.

    Unless your'e asking about the holiday one in which case Christmas!

    It's still Red Vs Blue.


    I'm enjoying RWBY (although I'm not as emotionally invested in it as some people). I like the Let's Plays in Achievement Hunter (GTA and Minecraft particularly). Oh, and RTAA, I LOVE what Jordan does with deceptively "simple" animation.

    Good question! I definitely plan the more complicated paintings and think about how I'm going to go about the process and how I want the finished piece to look. For one person portraits I'm more spontaneous and open to happy accidents.
