It's Wednesday Night; Where's My Trailer?

Those of you participating in the "I Love My Friends" Giveaway are probably wondering why I haven't live blogged Scream 3 yet, since the contest closes today. Well, there are three (good?) reasons for that . . .

The first is that my family's CPU was in a coma for about a week earlier this month, which meant I didn't get to watch the movie, much less type up my play-by-play. (What? You think Friday Night Movie is completed in a single Friday night? Well, it used to be . . .)

The second is that after we got our CPU back, the keyboard decided it wanted to be retired permanently and refused to type the letters A, S, D, F, J, K and L, and the colon and semi-colon. I had to improvise a special copy-paste system to write up three whole blog posts! But I was in no mood to live blog anything as well.

The third reason is that I've started meeting more tutees after school. Which is good for me, yes, but a little bad for the blog. And since I have to create mock exams and other review materials for them as well, I don't have as much free time as I used to.

Which also kind of explains why my promised performance of the winning "Weird Al" Yankovic song isn't up yet. Here's something else, though, to tide you over until I get my crew together . . .

Thanks to Cminor for the link!

And now that I've mentioned those two . . . Camera Man, Cue-card Boy and I usually film our videos when they get home from school, but we can't do that these days if I leave the house before they get back. So we'll be filming our "Weird Al" tribute/cover this Saturday.

It's not such a bad thing, if you think about it. My previous two smackdowns were all one week behind schedule for some reason, and I guess this one just wants to honour that tradition. =P

(Excuses, excuses . . . I know!)

But really, thanks to everyone who joined the Giveaway and everyone who has been following the smackdown and reading my blog. This hobby wouldn't be half as fun as it is without you. Come back on Friday for the drawing of the winner's name. That will be on schedule, at least! =)

Great take on the classic :) You've now placed yourself in big shoes, ma'am.

Have fun recording :-)

@Christopher: Or just shot myself in my very little foot. Either one works. =P

@Sully: Have fun not killing my crew and keeping them from killing me, you mean! ;-) But thanks! Excellence is probably beyond us, but we will try our hardest to be entertaining!

Okay, completely off topic.. but tonight's Top 10 Picks is on favorite fictional places.. Just saying! ;D

Enbrethiliel said...


Hahahahaha! That I can do, Jillian! ;-)

Do you mind if I do it this Saturday? It sounds like prime material for a Top Ten Picks/Locus Focus crossover. (Oh, wow! My first crossover!)

CMinor said...

Ah, so it came in handy after all! Christopher, the young lady in the vid is in the business, and probably had access to better recording equipment than most of us. I'm sure E will do an excellent job, even if her crew isn't out of school yet!

Okay, now "E" would like everyone to lower their expectations as far as they can!!!
