Yes, I'm still making these. It's utterly ridiculous, but it's something to pass the time. Besides, the Hooligans really seem to like them. Don't know about the Roth, though. I'm still expecting a Cease and Desist letter from his lawyers on any given day.

I'm providing the link to the TRT playlist, ensuring it'll start with TRT 145. Some are pretty amusing, all are irresistible, thanks to The Roth. Hubba hubba, Waka waka.

Still Alive

My beloved Alpaca Lips did not follow through as I was so desperately hoping.

Obviously. Since I'm making an update here.

There's a lot I'd like to write about, but I just don't feel ready for that right now. Honestly, the only thing holding me together at the moment is my unending and apparent desperate quest for laughter. I've actually found that for now in a show I've been watching since late 2011 when it debuted, but have only really come to appreciate and cling to like a freckle in the past couple of months. It's called Impractical Jokers and may well be the funniest show in the history of television, I shit you not. It was developed by the Staten Island Comedy Troupe called The Tenderloins. I would marry every one of these guys at once, if given half the chance. No ifs, ands, or buts. Of course, I do have a favourite, but I'm not really getting into that right now.

Just wanted to touch base and let any readers I may have left know that I am still here, still alive and kicking (myself and anyone in close proximity). I'm still struggling with editing, writing, and getting The Augury of Gideon ready for publishing, which I hope will happen this year. We'll see. I'm still working on music videos for Shriekback, Barry, and hopefully future related projects. I'm still making the Tim Roth Tutorials, of which there are 150 as of today.

I'm taking things one day at a time, although I think now more than ever, it's an uphill battle, and the only way I'm ever going to be able to move forward is to move away from this place. But I don't want to even think about all that right now.

All I want to do is laugh, and forget everything else.

I have been terribly lax in posting the Tim Roth Tutorials, so I am posting the playlist. You should be able to jump to #120, and then they will play automatically. Hopefully you'll like them! Some of them are pretty funny, if I do say so myself. And the Recess Tutorial is HOT HOT HOT. Here you go!

tinhuviel: (Tim Roth)
I've been lax in posting these, but I do have an excuse; my body seems to be trying to like die or sommat. At any rate, the lessons just keep rolling onward and upward. Number 119 may well kill me, though, for Cadmus/Flint-related reasons. Dear god...

More Rothian goodness here! )
tinhuviel: (Kelat)
So I'm back in the bosom of the house, even though I'm spending nights at Janice's and Michael's for the next few days. I'm still not very comfortable being by myself for any significant length of time and, considering I have no transportation for a while, that means I'll be imposing myself upon the good will of the aunt and uncle. It makes me consider even more seriously the idea of chucking it all and going to live nearer to the Mother Unit, if she'd have me. I still don't see myself doing such a thing until Chester has made the great journey beyond, though. I would feel it to be a betrayal not only to him, but to Aunt Tudi as well. So that's not gonna happen.

Toby is another matter altogether. Toby is still a youngster and would be the perfect companion to an older single person, or an elderly couple. He's definitely a one-dog canine, being quite territorial and possessive. I have constant problems with him trying to run the other beasties away from what he considers his and his alone - me.

Smidgen, of course, goes where I go. She's my baby. Period. No arguments on that point, even if it means that I remain in this house until my dying day. The only problem I think the Mother Unit would have with Smidgen is that mah Smidge still has her claws. And she always will. I don't believe in de-clawing. Even before I saw the procedure done, I was against the practice. Seeing how it was done and how the animal suffers during recovery makes it eternally verboten in Tin-land. Soft Paws might be an option, though. I deeply doubt that Smidge would want to engage in any serious discourse with the Unit's birds, seeing as how they're all almost her size and meaner than shit, but if she did become interested, Soft Paws would nip that inclination in the bud without any pain felt by anyone.

I made two Tim Roth Tutorials whilst lying in the hospital. Some of the devout followers of the series (Hooligans one and all) were shocked that I would do such a thing when I was feeling so poorly. Well, there wasn't much to do there, but watch television (not good telly either), try to write (which is hard when you're kind of drugged up), or engage in anything remotely meaningful other than trying to heal. I'm not saying the Tutorials have no meaning. Far from it! It's just that they're very easy to make once I know what the lesson is going to be. I've created a template that I use for each one, so it's really just paring down to what scene I need and changing the lesson number, along with wording the lesson just so. The most difficult bit of Tutorial creation is finding the perfect scene and thinking up an appropriate lesson for accompaniment. That's the trickiest bit. One thing that really pisses me off, though, is finding a wonderful Tutorial, but not being able to create it, because the ripped version of the movie turns out to be in French or Martian, or whatever, or it's scrambled beyond all semblance of sanity. What few Lie to Me Tutorials I've been able to make are all blocked worldwide on You Tube. Thank the Mighties for Vimeo! Despite the issues that come along with using that video sharing site, at least Vimeo is more charitable when it comes to free exchange of imagery. But I am babbling. I need to catch up the Cliffs with the current Tim Roth Tutorials before I make any more of them. So stay tuned for that.

Oh, one more thing on The Tutorials; I have announced to the Hooligans that, when I have run out of sufficient Archibald Cunningham footage to create new lessons, the Tim Roth Tutorials will come to a close. I don't think they were thrilled with the idea; however, I still have tons of good material to create more Tutorials, so it's not like the series is ending tomorrow.

Okay, enough of that.

Janice checked my mailbox yesterday and brought me a package from Barry. It contained three or four copies each of Shriekback's Having a Moment, his solo project Haunted Box of Switches, and Stic Basin's self-titled EP. There was a gentleman who expressed more than a rabid interest in Haunted Box, which Barry was all too gracious to share after I told him what the fellow had said. I am going to try to sell the other copies and send B the fundage I may get from such a venture. We shall see. One thing I do need t find out, though; the titles of the Stic Basin songs. I had them on my old iTunes before the computer was pulverised by Sprite. I was not so lucky with the retrieval of everything for iTunes, and that included the Stic Basin tracks. Soooo...I'm gonna have to ask him about that.

Now I am wondering if I should try to write anything of substance (as if that ever happens!) or just surf the web whilst listening to groove-ass songs, like the one playing on iTunes right now. What? "Party Man" by Prince, Joker's original theme song, and rightfully so, yo. "Why So Serious" is an epic theme, don't get me wrong. But "Party Man" so perfectly fits Joker, even Nolan's interpretation. Speaking of Nolan and Batman, it had been the plan to drive up to Concord and have a date with [livejournal.com profile] janalyson to see The Dark Knight Rises. That was pretty much tanked when I had the seizure in particular, but was indefinitely round-filed when the advent of my unexpected hospitalisation. I just hope my unfortunate travel-destroying misfortunes have not ruined [livejournal.com profile] janalyson's chances of seeing the flick on the silver screen. I've heard that's the only effective way of TDKR, preferably in an IMAX theatre. Here's hoping she and Jennifer are able to make it. As for me, I'll hopefully be able to see it when it comes out on video. If we all haven't been eradicated by the Alpaca Lips, I shall check it out then. If we are rendered extinct, it really won't matter in the end, anyway. Win-Win, as I see it.

Okie-Day, I think that's all I have for now. I'm off to either try to write, or make merry on The Intarwebz. Or I may snag a flick off Netflix, god bless 'em for their mere existence... 'Night 'Night.
tinhuviel: (Hickey Monster)
God hates me. Event Horizon came on the TV while I actually got to sleep last night. It woke me up. I looked at the screen, and there was Jason Isaacs. Damn.

Someone posted a picture of a gigantic bat on Facebook. Now, I usually don't notice stuff like this, but this bat had some seriously oversize junk. It could be a porn star.

Speaking of porn, I wonder if anyone else is getting a kick out of the XXX Olympics. Naked volleball, naked sprints, naked swimming, naked everything. Oh, and there'd be a boob competition and a penis size competition. The bat would win.

I watched a Hoarders marathon on TLC yesterday. I am now compelled to sanitise my house and start going through Aunt Tudi's stuff. She was definitely a hoarder. Not a bad one, but bad enough. Why do we need 14 jars of nails? So yeah... I don't want to end up on that show. o_0

I have more Tim Roth Tutorials to post here. I'm up to 111 of them. That's pretty pathetic, but he's been in so many movies, it's hard to stop making the Tutorials. There's so much fantastic material to make them.

A Shriekback fan freaked out when he heard Barry's version of This Big Hush and asked if there was any way he could get Haunted Box of Switches. I asked Barry, and he's sending me a few copies of them. I'm going to give one to the Shriek fan, but I'm selling the others on eBay. I've already sold some of The Y Records Years and sent B over $50. So yeah, that's rolling on nicely.

The body shop told me that Speck (my Smartcar) isn't too badly banged up. They think that Nationwide will just pay to have it repaired. That's a relief. The problem is, I'm kind of leery of driving any distances now. What if I had a seizure on the Blue Ridge Parkway? I'd fly off the mountains and die a horrible death. Then again, I wouldn't be aware of anything, so I'd perish passed out. I just don't want to hurt anyone else.

Okay, that's it for me. Onward and upward.
tinhuviel: (Rothian)
I can't believe there's even over a hundred of these. It was supposed to be a crash course in making videos. I have lost my freakin' mind.

tinhuviel: (Rothian)
Okay, here's the deal. I am going to post just the You Tube versions of these, but also include the links to the You Tube and Vimeo playlists where they are all uploaded. In the event I see a YT video is blocked completely or partially, I will showcase the Vimeo version instead. It'll take up less space like this and it will also save some of my sanity. So that being said, on to the Lessons!


More to come, as I restock my Roth footage. xo
tinhuviel: (Tim Roth)
I'm hoping I made #100 to be singularly and spectacular fantastic, because 'tis an Archibald Cunningham lesson, and it also marks the Tim Roth Tutorial's Centennial. So W00T!

Orright, let's have a go at these four important lessons, courtesy of The Roth.

Tim Roth Tutorial, Lesson #100 from Tinhuviel on Vimeo.

tinhuviel: (Rothian)
Sorry I don't have these up on Vimeo yet. I need to renew my Plus account over there; otherwise it takes me 68539274 years to upload a video. Once I have the account sorted, though, I'll upload Lessons 91 thru 96 (or whatever I'm up to by then). I'll link to the playlist over there, too. In the meantime, have some Rothian goodness.

tinhuviel: (Shriekback Logo)
I find it hilarious that 90% of the Shriekback pictures used in most You Tube videos and online articles are pics I uploaded to the SDC site in 2000-2001 from all those magazines I got off eBay. I'm not complaining. Lord knows, All Things Shriek need to be proliferated with abandon. The images never belonged to me; I just scanned them. They belong first to Shriekback, then to everyone else. If more videos are made for the Shrieks using the pics, I say "good on ya mate!"

The world needs to hear their music and, if the pictures help you get that music to the masses, then I am all for it. Then again, I'm all for anyone reposting those pics since the Shriekback Digital Conspiracy no longer exists and I have not yet gotten permission to archive everything on another website. Something needs to be done!

In other news, since I have gotten a new computer and a couple of new Roth movies, the Tim Roth Tutorials are back in almost full swing. I need to get another month's worth of Plus account on Vimeo before I can upload anything there, because uploading without a Plus account takes 4582430975234098520394 hours. I'll at least be posting the You Tube versions here for now, so stay tuned.

I got a call from what sounded, for all intents and purposes, like Indrid Cold. It went to voice mail. I can't make out what the person is saying. It has scared me. So I will be taking one of my new sleep meds tonight since, if I don't, I know I won't be sleeping. That said, if I start making gobbledegook posts later one, please email me or comment to stop me dumb ass.

Jem just came on my iTunes, a song called "And I Pray." It's one of the songs that helped drive the Sainted Confessor "mini-novel." Faust was a very devout Christian Vampire. His main defense against what Cadmus Pariah was doing to him was to pray. Here are the lyrics.

And So I Pray by Jem
Storm is brewing in the air tonight
So many pressures on my mind
Want to escape just wanna run away
But it's not an option I have to stay

And so I pray
I wish that all these things would go away
To disappear if only for a day
Know I can't go but I don't wanna stay

Can't believe the irony
The thing I wanted is killing me
All the happy smiles I miss
Didn't think it would be like this

And I pray
I wish that all these things would go away
To disappear if only for a day
Know I can't go but I don't wanna stay

Storm is brewing in the air tonight
So many pressures on my mind
Want to escape just wanna run away
But it's not an option I have to stay

And so I pray
I wish that all these things would go away
To disappear if only for a day
Know I can't go but I don't wanna stay
To be left alone if only for a day
I wish that all these things would go away (pray to you I hope it will be alright)
To be someone else if only for a day (and over soon, I feel it)
Know I can't go but I don't wanna stay (hope that you hear me)
tinhuviel: (Rothian)
I thought I'd posted Lessons #87 and #88, but apparently not. So here's a whopping four Tutorials.

I was almost convinced to stop these at Lesson 100, but probably won't for a number of reasons, the two main ones being 1) Many of the fans (or Hooligans as they are called by Tim Roth) are clamouring for these not to end and 2) I have way too many more movies that I could probably draw some unintentional hilarity from. Another reason, although not as necessary as it initially was, is making these were and still are, a great tutorial in movie-making, which has immensely helped me to get better at this, in order to represent the Shrieks, Barry Andrews, and Thee Caretakers to the best of my ability. 'Cos, seriously, these Tutorials came into existence as a fluke while I was rabidly trying to gain some sort of skill and hone it just a tad, so I could live up to the promise I'd made to Barry, to make available the Illuminati project.

There were only supposed to be five of these. Obviously, it has gotten out of hand. All that said, I've decided to make every 10th Tutorial from here on out, an Archibald Cunningham Tutorial. Because he was the driving force in creating these crazy things, and he's the first Tim Roth character I ever saw (which is probably why I've had a love affair going on with the man for almost 20 years now.).
tinhuviel: (Rothian)
It's probably not surprising that the most reaction to these has been to #83, and who could blame the Hooligans really? Tim Roth, cookies, and milk always make a great combination. And the way he asks what kind of cookies, it's as though he's actually saying, "if I don't like the kind of cookie you're offering me, I will kill you and fold you up in a suitcase, grandma!" Gotta love a badass.

Just embedding the Vimeo version of #82, 'cos You Tube blocked it for copyright issues. Bastards.

Tim Roth Tutorial, Lesson #82 from Tinhuviel on Vimeo.

Tim Roth Tutorial, Lesson #83 from Tinhuviel on Vimeo.

Offering up the Vimeo embed and the link to You Tube, since YT disabled the embedding. Damn them!

Tim Roth Tutorial, Lesson #84 from Tinhuviel on Vimeo.

You Tube Link: http://youtu.be/-20Ht_clC9E

More to come, although I'm seriously considering retiring the Tutorials once I reach 100.
tinhuviel: (Rothian)
I'm posting this one by itself, 'cos it's Tim Roth's birthday Tutorial. His birthday is 14 May, 2012. I know it appears early for this, but he's in France right now for the Cannes Film Festival and it's just past midnight there, so it's officially his birthday. So here we go! [livejournal.com profile] paisley_daze, you'll dig this one as it has Gary Oldman in it. ;)

Tim Roth Tutorial, Lesson #81 from Tinhuviel on Vimeo.

tinhuviel: (Tim Roth)
Eighty lessons? Really? Surely I've traveled far beyond Sparta. And, of course I had to use the Absinthe scene...because that's just way too bloody bizarre.

Tim Roth Tutorial, Lesson #79 from Tinhuviel on Vimeo.

Tim Roth Tutorial, Lesson #80 from Tinhuviel on Vimeo.

tinhuviel: (Tim Roth)

Tim Roth Tutorial, Lesson 76 from Tinhuviel on Vimeo.

tinhuviel: (Tim Roth)
Posting this one video early, because of its relevance. Will post Lesson #76 alone too, just to be able to keep to the even vids. Happy Anniversary to Tim Roth, whose first movie role was seen 30 years ago today. Once a badass, always a badass.

So much to learn from this dude. We need to form a college or sommat.

The Crazy People have convinced me that it might be in my "best interest" to start copying The Roth on the Tim Roth Tutorials. I think I have fully joined the Hooligan ranks after being almost solely pure Rothian, because I'm seriously considering it. If I end up with a reputation of being some sort of stalker, though, just because I have a weirdo sense of humour, I'm going to lay waste to the whole of Twitter, leaving a steaming radioactive crater where it once stood.
tinhuviel: (Roth = Lovely Man)
Posting this one, so I can star making even Tutorial posts in the future. This one is pretty pretty pretty steamy.

Tim Roth Tutorial, Lesson #72 from Tinhuviel on Vimeo.

tinhuviel: (Tim Roth)
Really, I can't believe there are this many now. What the hell am I doing?

Tim Roth Tutorial, Lesson #70 from Tinhuviel on Vimeo.

You Tube Link (because they won't let me embed, the bastards!): http://youtu.be/_0Pp6oaPQFw

Tim Roth Tutorial, Lesson #71 from Tinhuviel on Vimeo.

tinhuviel: (Tim Roth)
Almost to Lesson #70. That's just wrong, especially since there were only supposed to be five of these. Five. FIVE. FIVE!

Tim Roth Tutorial, Lesson #68 from Tinhuviel on Vimeo.

Tim Roth Tutorial, Lesson #69 from Tinhuviel on Vimeo.

tinhuviel: (Tim Roth)
Three Tutorials this time. Only linking #67 to Vimeo, as it was blocked by Fox and You Tube, because they're bastards. Oh, and apologies for the sound not syncing up on TRT #66. I tried everything.

Tim Roth Tutorial, Lesson #66 from Tinhuviel on Vimeo.

Tim Roth Tutorial, Lesson #67 from Tinhuviel on Vimeo.

Tim Roth Tutorial, Lesson #68 from Tinhuviel on Vimeo.

tinhuviel: (Tim Roth)
I'm really not sure whether to be proud that I've made over sixty of these, or if I should be monumentally ashamed at my all-too-obvious pathetic state. Whatever the case, here are the next two Tutorials, in Technicolour! And on You Tube and Vimeo.

Tim does Kafka and, you guessed it, ARCHIBALD CUNNINGHAM )
tinhuviel: (Tim Roth)
I'm gonna have to spread these apart more now that I'm embedding both the You Tube and the Vimeo videos. So I'm gonna try to just post two at a time.

Tutelage behind the cut )

Whoever is watching these, I hope you enjoy. :)
tinhuviel: (Roth = Lovely Man)
Because of some copyright issues inhumanely adhered to by You Tube, some of the Tim Roth Tutorials were unavailable for viewing in some countries (mainly the US). In an effort to make them all accessible to everyone, I've uploaded all the current videos to Vimeo. The video album's link is here: http://vimeo.com/album/1910275

From here on out, each Tutorial will be uploaded to both You Tube and Vimeo. I'll be embedding the You Tube videos here, but I will include the link to each Tutorial on Vimeo as well.

For those following the Tutorials, I hope this helps out and that you enjoy them.
