My film friends, Bryan & Amy Storkel and Jason Connell have produced a film about card-counting Christians who are professional blackjack players called Holy Rollers: The True Story of Card Counting Christians.
I’ve been following this film for a while. I’ve seen several pieces of advanced footage and have been honoured to support it’s development in several ways. It’s a fascinating look into a niche world of Christianity and professional gambling!
AND IT DROPS TOMORROW!!
My friend Vessie Kazachka was Second AC on the Oscar-winning film “The Artist” and I remember her telling us while it was being shot that she thought it was a good film and that she was proud to be working on it. This was before the Weinsteins got wind of it.
Vessie also worked on my short film, Sonny! We are so grateful to her for sharing her mad skillz and very proud to call her friend!
I just moved, with my husband, across the country – from LA to NYC. I was doing weekly sprints ( more like monthly, but I was doing them!), sporadic strength training, and occasional walks with my hubby. But then we started packing!
Since the first empty box was opened until now (except for a brief run over Thanksgiving at my husband’s parent’s home) I haven’t done much exercise. That is, I haven’t done much single-purpose exercise (ie. exercise for the sake of exercise). What I *have* done is:
- lift and carry heavy and awkward items
- move heavy boxes
- assemble IKEA furniture
- move said furniture around the apartment without scratching the floors
- acquire and carry home heavy bags of household goods
- climb up onto the counters and climb back down again, over and over
And because we’re in NYC, there’s also…
So we’re getting exercise! My muscles can attest! And we’ve been getting the Erwan Le Corre-type of exercise… Sorta!
Once we get really settled in, I’ll figure out where to run my sprints. But in the meantime, I’m not stressed about not getting “regular” exercise.
Don’t get me wrong. I *love* my Injinji socks. I’ve just got a tight budget right now and can’t buy enough for every day of the week! So how do I wear my Vibrams without buying a ton of special socks? Simple. I make toeless socks.
They’re like fingerless gloves; but they’re for your feet!
It’s simple! Take a pair of socks that you want to wear with your Vibrams and put them on your feet!
Draw lines where the edges of your toenails hit the sock. Like so…
Then take the sock off and cut holes where those lines are… Tada! Toeless socks!
Yer done! Go wear your Vibrams proudly!
I was out with friends recently at a shopping center and we stopped in a sock store where I found these lovely options:
1. HUE Peek-a-boo Liners
They also come in nude…
2. They also had FEELMAX Toe Socks for Sneakers.
But if you’re feelin’ frisky, you might wanna go for these?
Or not… 😉
Dirt. It’s a good thing. I consider it mother nature’s vaccine. I like to play in it. Grow stuff in it. And sling it at that cute boy I married.
We can tend to sometimes think of dirt as dead. Ashes to ashes and dust to dust, ya know? But dirt is a community of organisms. It’s alive. And we’re killing it.
Here’s the trailer…
Just like FOOD INC, KING CORN, and BIG RIVER were all films worth talking about, DIRT is worth our time.
