Not A One-Trick Pony….

Who knew that Gwyneth Paltrow could sing?

And damn well, too.

She’s one of a select few Hollywood actors who can do a pretty fine job of singing too. Some other notables include

Kate Winslet

Hugh Jackman — who spent time in Broadway, so he’s probably got a bit of an unfair advantage to those who started in acting initially, but still, he definitely knows how to belt out a song

Not to forget also, Joaquin Phoenix

Here’s a WatchMojo list I found while rummaging for videos. Who knew?

A Dog (or Cat) is more than just a pet….

I pisses me off no end when people say “but he’s just a dog (or cat)” when someone’s pet dies.
 
I watched Marley & Me today. And I forgot about the ending T_T
(spoiler alert and tissue alert)

“A dog has no use for fancy cars, or big homes or designer clothes.
A waterlogged stick will do just fine.

A dog doesn’t care if you’re rich or poor, clever or dull, smart or dumb.
Give him your heart, and he’ll give you his.

How many people can you say that about?

How many people can make you feel rare, and pure, and special?

How many people can make you feel extraordinary?”

Rings (2017) – TV Store Prank – YouTube

Paramount decided to do some viral marketing ahead of the release of their new movie “Rings” – basically the next instalment of the rebooted Ring/Ringu series for the western audience and updated to use more recent tech. Is it as scary as the original Japanese? Do let me know if you watch it.

Heavenly Sword Movie – The Official Movie Trailer – YouTube

Another movie spawned from a game. Will be interesting to see how this one lands.

Project Gooseberry – A Letter from Ton & Francesco

Received this today:

The Gooseberry crowd-funding campaign is over!

Unfortunately we didn’t get enough funding in to make a feature length movie. We do have a lot of support though – over 4500 people donated or subscribed. That’s more than enough to start working on the Pilot of the film.

You can read a lot more about it here:

In a later email you will be contacted about refunds, cancellations, or activations of pledges. We won’t do anything without your explicit approval. Just give us a bit of time to handle it well.

Please read the following carefully, one of the cases applies yours.

1) PayPal and Bank pledges
If you paid us already you will be contacted today or tomorrow. You then can decide whether you prefer a refund or if want to support the film project after all.

2) Credit card pledges
If you have pledged using a Credit Card, no charges have happened yet. We will contact you early next week with an option to cancel the pledge, or to activate it. We will not charge any card without your permission.

3) Cloud pledges
If you promised to join Blender Cloud if we made our target, you will get contacted next week too.

4) Active Cloud Subscriptions
If you already joined Blender Cloud, you will get contacted next week with our plans for further development of Blender Cloud, and how the Pilot project will fit in. We hope you stay on board, but a subscription can be cancelled any time.

You can contact us any time with questions. We do our best to handle emails within a day!
