Woke up to hear the kitties yelling at me so I got up to feed them. Pickle always picks up his food and runs off with it. I have to keep an eye on him so he doesn't drop it all over the apartment.
Time to catch up on comic book reading. I have a huge pile of to reads the moment. Working at the comic book store has been a bit dangerous to me. Today I started reading Black Canary and Zatana: Bloodspell. Written by Paul Dini (Batman the animated series and Harley Quin comics) and with art by Joseph A.Quinones Jr. It's so bubbly and fun.
I got all dressed up in my Sin City shirt because I was heading off to see Sin City: Dame to kill for at the movies. I hyped this movie up in my mind for years and thankfully it more than lived up to my expectations. Eva Green was acted perfectly and Mickey Rourke looked ever so wonderful as Marv. There were three different stories in the film, only one was from the comics. It was so exciting to see new Sin City stories and also the rad cameos from Frank Miller.
Time to start my work for the day. Every Monday I shoot at least one video. Today I decided to shoot two. A mail video- Where I share and say thank you to all those who sent lovely things to my PO Box, and my weekly comic book pull list video. Only the pull list has a small script to go off so I spent the hour studying the pervious issues of comics and researching what was coming out this week.
Time to film. My first video was the mail time video. It was so much fun to say thank you to everyone for their support and letters. Unfortunatly my camera ran out of room near the end so I had to re shoot the last two letters.
Time to edit. Usually my videos take at least an hour to edit. I use IMovie on a very old Mac and it's constantly shutting down. I love using sound effects, showing close ups and having fun music in the background. I don't think people realise how much effort making You Tube videos is. It's a lot of work but so much fun.
There is a possibility that I may have my jewellery on a little shelf in a store soon. I got really inspired in-between shooting videos so I decided to make a few hair bows. My favourite ones to make have giant felt donuts with strawberry icing and sprinkles that I attach to donut fabric.
The last part of every Monday for me is shooting my weekly comic book pull list. It is a lot of fun as the husband and I goof around and like making a new toy display each week. Monday is my favourite day of the week because I have so much fun with my husband but we still get a lot of work done. It takes us at least an hour to film, then in between dinner and a movie I edit and upload the pull list video.
I hope you all had a great Monday. What did you get up to?
