As my final project character’s story is evolving, I needed to advance her progress to the next level where she becomes part of a television show loosely based on some of her life experiences.  So, that meant I needed to invent the television show and now you’re all caught up.

I mashed up a movie poster of a “Downton Abbey” spoof I made along with an excerpt from an old movie poster of “My Fair Lady“...

1 Comment on Transformation: Kurt Russell

He’s come a long way, from little boy to man, starting out as Mr. Walt Disney’s newly discovered child actor to present-day partner of Goldie Hawn.  He was in a ton of Disney movies when I was growing up, and I loved him as an adult in “Tango and Cash” with Sylvester Stallone.  If you look closely, you’ll spot him kicking Elvis in the shin, as a jungle boy on Gilligan’s Island, and on a planet somewhere on Lost in Space...

4 Comments on Dungeons & Dreidls

This was a fun daily create, making a mash-up of two unrelated gaming items to create a new game. The first two game pieces I laid my hands on were an old dreidl someone gave me years ago when I went to school in Westchester, NY, and a Dungeon & Dragons character that was also gifted to me years ago.

Mashed together, it’s a new game of fun and danger, braving the unknown and adventuring together spinning the dreidl to decide the outcome of our questing encounters...
