JOL Sunday Flickr #11

JOL-Sunday-Flickr

Back after a few days in rural Ontario with my lovely and awesome wife, and we’re into another episode of JOL Sunday Flickr!  I’m sitting here on the couch with my little adorable dogger and my Laura watching Blood Diamond with Leo DiCaprio and Jennifer Connelly.  Laura has not seen a lot of the American movies that I love to watch when I write, and today’s episode is no exception.  If you haven’t seen Blood Diamond, you need to get it!

Check out some excellent shots from the Flickrverse — the JimOnLight Flickr Group Photo Pool!

This has been a great week.

I got married to a wonderful lady who loves me so much.
I got a lot of things done from the Grand List of Things.
I went through about 200gb of video content that I have not had a chance to touch because of my full-time work.
I took a few moments to smell the flowers.

It always makes me feel so great to take a look through the great art that gets added to the JOL Flickr Group Photo Pool every week, I am truly humbled by such passionate, interesting light work!  Check out this week’s offering:

This is a pretty good Sunday, if I do say so myself.  I’m working on something awesome that is going to hit the web Wednesday morning — I’m going to be vague, but it has to do with this (and yes, I’m sorry it’s been more than two weeks, life’s been kinda high speed lately):

Yeah, it’s coming, finally.  JimOnLight TV Episode 1 in its various parts will be hitting the web on Wednesday morning, June 27, 2012!  Starring Jeff Waful and Umphrey’s McGee, Chauvet’s COLORado Batten 144 Tour are going to be the stars of Episode 1, and I’m excited to put this out there!  I’m about to release Vivien 2012 with CAST and we’re also banging away on wysiwyg R29, which has kept be unbelievably busy since I moved up here at the end of February.  I’m finally figuring out how to balance my career with my passion, and I am feeling pretty f*cking good about it!  Now if I can just get outside once in a while and get some sun, life will be even more sweet!

Check out a great Sunday’s worth of photographer’s contributions to our acceptance of beauty and art — have an amazing day, everybody!  Stop by the JimOnLight Flickr Group and join up, it’s completely free!

I have been doing a lot of sitting on my couch when I’m not at work; I generally spend my off-work time working on articles and doing my own personal research in light.  I think I’m losing some of my social skills!  While at home, I typically like to have a movie or something going for background noise, it helps me concentrate.

I watched a movie this weekend while I was writing some JOL that was put out in 2007 — Danny Boyle’s Sunshine.  I have to say that I watched it already twice this weekend, that movie was awesome.  I love that disaster movie genre, I think I picked that up from Leia.  This movie has a pretty serious undertone, it’s about having to start a second mission to re-ignite the sun, which has basically almost gone out.  The visuals are unbelievable, especially if you see it either on a movie screen or in BluRay, it’s going to be great.  It’s all in space, which is also pretty great, and there are explosions and dangers.  As far as action movies go, that’s a pretty cool combination.  I don’t really want to say anything about it, it’s something that is going to rock your eyes when you see it.

If you need to spoil it for yourself, here’s a review at the New York Times, but I say just go watch the movie.

But enough about my recent favorite movie plugs, check out this week’s Sunday JimOnLight.com Flickr Group Photo Pool post!

Wow, I am absolutely awake right now, watching Inside Job.  I have been working my tail feathers off — you ever get where your sleep schedule is just off because you’re too tired to sleep?

I saw a movie today that I think nobody but me thought was absolutely awesome – The Divide, with Michael Biehn and Lauren German about a post-apocalyptic environment.  This movie is some freaky deep sh*t, people.  Get ready for some crazy insane completely wacko direction (which should be taken as a compliment) and it’s a scenic and lighting designer’s very deep dark dream.  This movie has really, really bad reviews, but I thought it rocked.  I’m serious, people hated this movie!  HAHA!  I say give it a chance, it’s a pretty great Saturday afternoon rainy day movie, but you better watch something with kittens in it afterwards.  Maybe eat some confetti frosting cupcakes or something too, it’s like watching The Road.  GAAAAH!

Side note for those of you who haven’t seen The Road — if you think you’re tough and all, you’re going to cry during and after The Road.  Prepare accordingly.

Check out some of these awesome Sunday Flickr Group images — this is going to be a creative week, I can smell it!
