Super Moon

After dragging a Nikon D300 all over the place, and it felt like carrying a weight tied to an anchor, I've changed to an Oly Micro 4/3rds and oh my, this light as a feather camera has some nice features.

And the GoPro did a night time lapse which even after I've read all the articles and watched a batch of videos, still don't know how I did this, but I like it.

Don't Get Any On You

I have a horror script about a nasty green entity that crawls out of a high mountain lake and proceeds to consume everything and everyone in its path.

It was great fun to write and is running about 50/50 in the contests -- either out early on or finishing with some recognition. I think this is because in the middle of the story there is a big fat scrumptious screenwriting joke and the reader must --

1. Have a sense of humor.

2. Not be a format Nazi.

As I said, it's running about 50/50.

But, I digress.

The local lake is currently having an algae bloom, and let me just say, ick.

I thought it would be fun to film some of that for -- well, who knows what I might get up to with film of real live icky green gunk.

Plus, hasn't that GoPro been whispering to me all this long time -- let's go in the water, sweetheart.

Why yes, it has.

So we did.

If later they find my bones extruded by some moveable green beast, you'll have heard it here first.
