2:04 PM - Rupert Murdoch Film Fest

Imagine this a serious video from Slate Magazine at The Eye about a media major executive, Rupert Murdoch and the portrayals of him throughout the media. I'm talking in movies, TV series, and cartoons. Either they're looking at the man himself or the fictional characters are based on him.

If you don't know Rupert Murdoch is the CEO of News Corp they own the FOX News Channel, the FOX network, and 20th Century Fox among other properties around the country.

2:29 PM - I've got a Flickr "pro" account now...

Actually I've had it for a good three months since I merged my Yahoo! Photos account with my Flickr account. It was decided that Yahoo! Photos would close for service and that Flickr would be the primary photo hosting website.

When I merged my Yahoo! Photos with Flickr I gained a "pro" account but that would last me three months I believe. On Oct 6th, I would have had to fork over some cash and that would have meant at least another year or two of being a "pro" account member. It would have cost $25 for a year or $48 for two years.

A "pro" account gives you unlimited storage, uploads, bandwith, photosets, permanent archives of high resolution pictures, and ad-free browsing and sharing. If you had a free account the basic benefits are that you can only upload 200 photos at a time. There was a bandwith limit per month. You can only create three photo sets. If you did continue to post after reaching the 200 photo limit you're pictures won't be visible among those 200 photos. In fact if you blog as I do or other wise post some pictures somewhere on the internet that's the only time you'll see that picture until you buy a "pro" account.

When I didn't have a "pro" account, what I do is delete those pictures that haven't gotten a lot of views. Save the ones with views or comments and I won't upload pics with any regularity. This summer that changed since I could reap the benefits of a "pro" account.

Now I have a "pro" account for as long as I take advantage of AT&T/Yahoo! DSL. Expect more uploads in the future and I hope that the Flickr badge you see at the bottom will see a different set of pictures when you visit. Though for right now, they're going to be what they are because I didn't thing to bring my usual point and shoot camera with me.

And I'm gonna figure out what my cell phone doesn't send or recieve text messages. As soon as I can figure that out I'm gonna post cell phone images onto Flickr as well. Of course even if I do I'll post picture directly onto this blog. That's what it's here for primarily.

3:26 PM - At Last the 1948 Show - Let's Speak English

This show came along before Monty Python's Flying Circus premiered in Britain. Know that two Python regulars John Cleese and Graham Chapman came from this show and there may not be much resemblance to Monty Python, however, I post this because this sketch was damned funny. Hmm there should be some ripoffs of this sketch.

8:47 PM - Jim Henson's Time Piece


I had no idea that the man who created some of my favorite childhood memories on TV, with the Muppet Show and Sesame Street can do a short film. Well it probably helps if you're going to make TV productions in the future involving your puppet creations. This was great to watch certainly.

11:41 AM - Have blog will travel

That's what I should start calling this blog since I seem to semi-frequently post pictures of videos of places that I have been so far.

BTW, I should figure out what's wrong with my text messaging on my phone so that I can start posting some of the mobile pics that I took when I left from Atlanta thru Birmingham to Memphis. It was a nice ride too and I would love to show off my pressed penny that has an outline of the state of Alabama and the words "The Beautiful" within it. I got it at a penny pressing maching at the Greyhound station in Birmingham.

The ride was nice especially on the way up because during the daytime I get to see some of the picturesque scencery thru the Alabama and Mississippi countryside heading west/northwest. It was a great ride that on the way back I'd have to sleep thru because I took a run during the nighttime and plus I was very sleepy anyway. I had a very hectic weekend getting to Memphis again.

Did I mention I already had passed thru almost two or so weeks earlier?

Anyway, I'm back on the grind again. And you know? I really like traveling I want to get into the mode where I can go somewhere everytime I get into a restless mood. I'd really like that. I'll get there in the near future.

It's a promise.
