After we toiled for our films, we all got together for a party, of course–to show and perhaps soft critique our films. These are some of those in Doug Killgore‘s Rice University Documentary Film Spring Class. What Is Your Passion? using Adobe Premiere Pro 2.0.

One of the few times I’ve tried my hand on a “big” camera. The seats here have just been folded and kept quiet now after the awesome 8-3 on a Sunday afternoon. Houston Astros beat the New York Mets. [See Chris Burke‘s (#2) home run run here.]

Happy Birthday!

Ode To Sadness

by Pablo Neruda

Sadness, scarabwith seven crippled feet,spiderweb egg,scramble-brained rat,bitch’s skeleton.No entry here.Don’t come in.Go away.Go backsouth with your umbrella,go backnorth with your serpent’s teeth.A poet lives here.No sadness maycross this threshold.Through these windowscomes the breath of the world,fresh red roses,flags embroidered withthe victories of the people.No.No entry.Flapyour bat’s wings,I will trample the feathersthat fall from your mantle,I will sweep the bits and piecesof your carcass tothe four corners of the wind,I will wring your neck,I will stitch your eyelids shut,I will sew your shroud,sadness, and bury your rodent bonesbeneath the springtime of an apple tree.

When “girls” need to know and talk about life, love, and everything, it definitely calls for a night out with mom.
