Golden Globe Awards

Every year I compile a best dressed list from the Oscars.  This year I thought I’d see what the stars of the screen, big and small, adorned themselves with at the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards.  This year’s carpet was a sea of red and white, with a touch of gold.

Well, that only took a month longer than I thought, lol!  Congratulations Trang! You are the lucky winner of our 10 000 hits contest!  A $10 Shoppers gift card is coming your way!  Inbox me the address you’d like it sent to and I’ll get it out straight away.  Thanks to everyone who entered.  They’ll be more to come!  🙂

The plan was simple.  My shift ended at 8pm, the party started at 8pm, and the venue was only a couple of blocks away from work.  Punch out, throw on a dress, touch up my makeup, and make it to the 16th Annual Young Filmmakers Party just fashionably late.  Seems simple enough, right?  I’m sure you know where this is going…

I’ve had the good fortune of having my work screened at another film festival.  On Friday, April 13, the music video for Jakalope’s song Magnolia played to a sold-out crowd as part of the ReelWorld Film Festival‘s Music Video Night.  Of all the countless videos out there, we were chosen as one of only 25 official selections programmed for the evening.

Hello guys and gals!  A few weeks ago I announced our 5 000 Blog Hits Thank You Contest!  After a failed attempt at making a little prize draw video, I figured I’d just do this the old fashioned way and take a picture.  So, without further ado, ladies and gentlemen, we have a winner!  Congratulations Megan Brown on being randomly drawn as the winner of the iTunes card!  I’ll email you to get your address, and have it off in the mail to you soon!  YAY!!

Thanks to everybody for entering.  You’re all special to me, and I wish there could be more winners.  The good news is, the ol’ blog has already passed the 6 000 hit mark in record time, so 10 000 isn’t that far away.  Perhaps that will call for another special treat?  🙂  Have a great day everyone!
