A podcast network featuring uncensored pop culture criticism and comics creation conversation. In light of the AudioShocker’s impending retirement, the kids at the Allegheny Teen Center have brainstormed a list of questions about art, comics, life, and other stuff.
If someone has an idea for a webcomic, can they make it up as they go along or do they need to write it all out first?
Plus, we briefly the discuss the new audit Teen Center is undergoing in light of some troubling events that have occurred recently. On this episode, we contrast and compare Garfield in January 1984 to Garfield in January 2014.
The art has evolved a bit with Garfield spending more time on his hind legs and doubling the size of his feet. After the end theme, we read the latest Allegheny Teen Center announcement from Hank 300 (who wasn’t able to record this episode with us due to a catastrophic Super Bowl related internet crisis). The main character is Romona, an Arkseologist who’s working to fight back the expansion of the crystals while seeking to eradicate them completely.
For years, Solomon Mars has created panel-to-panel comics that he shares online as Flash files.
Since this episode was recorded a couple of weeks early, we’ve got a special update after the end theme… a conversation between Nick and Hank 300 recorded on location in Walla Walla, WA! If Nick, Hank, and Cecily make it out alive, then we’ll have a new podcast for you on Tue Jan 7 wherein we’ll discuss Battle Angel Alita v5 chapters 1-3.
After a conversation about Ross’s earwax, we review the documentary Bones Brigade: An Autobiography and its behind-the-scenes companion, Bonus Brigade.
In Bones Brigade, we follow the history of the infamous 80s skateboarding team of the same name through interviews and archival footage.
At 42:00, we wrap up our Bones Brigade review and shift to comic news (which, of course, means means news about everything except comic books). We also review a comic book review (meta!) by our buddy Kelly Thompson, who writes eloquently about a book we’ve never heard of called Marvel Knights: X-Men #2. We really wanna review Iron Man 3 and give away a bunch of Iron Man comics, but the movie’s so damn expensive.
Ross relives the development hell of Dead Tired, a pitch he worked on with Vertigo at DC Comics for years until he couldn’t recognize the story any more. Ross has had numerous misses with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, starting years ago at Mirage Studios up through last year when he was offered an opportunity to draw the main series at IDW. Nick describes a few of his own rejected pitches for animated shorts over at Frederator Studios, including one you can read called The Demon From My Butt. After that, Ross and Nick rant about annoying comic book news and try to figure out what the #$%& is going on with Scarlet Witch’s O-face. After that, Ross and Nick rant about annoying comic book news and try to figure out what the #$%& is going on with Scarlet Witch’s O-face. After the announcement, Ross drops a quick update about his art for the next story arc of IDW’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Nick talks a bit about his new Nik Furious album, 7 Star Sky Flash Kick. Then we tear apart Sleepwalker #25-33, the last nine horrendous issues of this oddball comic book series. Finally, we try to hunt down some intriguing comic book news to talk about but struggle to find anything worth discussing. Artists Kristi “Batz” Zerga and Dianna “Kitty” Spain are collecting the first three crazy issues of their Kitty & Batz comic book series into one twisted, brightly colored graphic novel called Hypnotic Homicide. Artists Kristi “Batz” Zerga and Dianna “Kitty” Spain are collecting the first three crazy issues of their Kitty & Batz comic book series into one twisted, brightly colored graphic novel called Hypnotic Homicide. Ross Campbell is hard at work drawing the next Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles story arc and he delivers an ultra-brief update on his progress! Nick Marino wants to know: If Ross could go on a road trip to scenic Northhampton, Massachusetts with Leo, Donny, Mikey, and Raph… what would they do?!? After that we dig our discussion teeth into the meaty meatalicious juicy tasty extra-sized beef of the episode — Sleepwalker #9-16! On our last episode, we took a look at the rocky beginning of this early 90s alien superhero. Bob Budiansky and Bret Blevins are at their best in the four-part Color Blindness story arc featuring the naked technicolor supervillain, Spectra. Next: We say goodbye to Bret Blevins and hello to Kelly Krantz as the series begins to wane in Sleepwalker #17-24 (and the Holiday Special).
Hank describes the blossoming romance between Dino (#1 rez gangsta) and Carol (the new Granny), and the parental connection between Red Crow (living in a tipi) and Dash (deadbeat dad).
While the end of Scalped defies many of our original expectations, it also reinforces the extreme violence and misogyny that consumed earlier volumes. In Between the Panels we take a look at artist Danijel Zezelj, who’s managed to best match Guera’s style out of any other contributing artist on Scalped.
Finally, in Smoke Signals we look ahead to the future, asking questions like: Has Dino’s character arc fizzled out?
After Kaylie McDougal confesses her hatred for Bill Murray and Nick Marino drops a shoutout to illustrator Summer Suzuki, we BARF up a storm with ALF s1 e23 and ALF s1 e24! Next up, Kaylie and Nick talk about their respective reasons for why they hate getting haircuts. That transitions into a discussion about naming characters, which leads into Kaylie’s new comics project.
After the end theme, we review (with SPOILERS!) The More They Stay Insane by Skipper Martin, Adam Huntley, Michael Spicer, and Thomas Mauer. While Shawn works on the latest page of the Gello Apocalypse webcomic, he talks about life, love, comics, and more.
He also shares his thoughts about Ross Campbell‘s self-published graphic novel of Mountain Girl comics.
After the end theme, Shawn gets deep and talks about the difficultly of juggling different comics while working a day job. Scott Hedlund joins Nick Marino to talk about comic book conventions, self-published comics, and prints. Even though they began as comic book events, most large conventions are now expensive pop culture showcases for movies, TV, and established properties.
On the flip side, there are lots of local expos and fairs that favor crafts, zines, and artistic aesthetic over narrative comics.
ALSO: Shoutout to Rob Harrington of Ginger Rabbit Studio for sharing his thoughts about prints and comics with Nick at last weekend’s Long Beach Comic Expo. Shawn Atkins is joined by David DeVera, comics writer and indie publisher of the grindhouse graphic novel, Ninjabitch, through Diamondgoat Media. Finally, the dudes give props to one of their favorite Pittsburgh comic artists and collaborators, Harold Cupec (creator of Pugnuggle Tales).
Brandon shares about his background as a musician and how it’s informed the story of his ongoing series, Dedford Tales. Brandon also discusses his visit to Tokyo and the how it yielded fantastic photo ref for the fight scenes in the Manga Haters story. He had answers for that question, and they were very good, very eloquent ones, even as I abbreviate them here. Sherlock Holmes was, he continued, a€?the personification of something in us that we have lost, or never had.
I had read the Sherlock Holmes stories repeatedly for years before I first learned there was such a thing as the Baker Street Irregulars.
I began to make many new friends when I joined the BSI in the early 1970s, in America, of course, and also in England and Canada, great English-speaking nations of the world. Then in 1979 I began to travel not only to England, but also other countries in my work at the Pentagon, and a secret of my professional life is that I always considered the Pentagon to be a personal extension of the National Endowment for the Humanities. So I arranged to meet some of the Sherlock Holmes Klubben members in Copenhagen during that visit, and others that followed in the 1980s. I learned about The Cimbrian Friends of Baker Street, and we got together with Hanne and Aage Rieck-SA?rensen as well. In the process, I discovered that the Cimbrian Friends, along with other members of the Klubben in Copenhagen, were devotees of another addiction of mine, P.
That year, sooner than he had good reason to, Henry made me an honorary member of the Sherlock Holmes Klubben.
So it meant a great deal to me, on my first visit to Aalborg, when he insisted upon adding me to his galleries of Sherlock Holmesa€™s and Dr.
The second matter is a letter that I and six other American honorary Klubben members a€” Peter Blau, Ron De Waal, Bill Rabe, Ted Schulz, John Bennett Shaw, and Julian Wolff a€” sent Henry for his 80th birthday in 1988, after he had announced his retirement as Klubben president at the previous Januarya€™s dinner in Copenhagen. In his reply, he said he knew I had written the letter, and it warmed my heart to know he realized that.
And I hope The Cimbrian Friends have archives, because I want to donate these letters to and from and about Henry to them. The last thing I want to recall, because nothing has ever taken their place, were the books Henry created and sent to his friends every Christmas a€” beautiful chapbooks that he took great pains over, about not only Sherlock Holmes but many other interests of his as well, like tobacco, and horse-racing, and of course Wodehousea€™s characters and stories.
When I first attended the BSI annual dinner in New York in 1973, the custom of Standing upon the Terrace was new to me.
It was Christopher Morley who first made explicit that aspect of our pastime, in 1944 in the sub-title he gave to a new book of his, Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Yet something else besides Victoriana was on his mind: a reflection about the essential nature of the Sherlock Holmes stories, prompting him to give his book the sub-title A Textbook of Friendship. Not long ago I needed to deal with this issue of friendship, as applies to Sherlockians themselves, in an historical novel about the Baker Street Irregulars that will be published this autumn.

We love cult films, comic books, graphic novels, webcomics, animation, weird TV shows, and fighting games.
Every week we discuss comic books, webcomics, graphic novels, movies, TV, video games, fighting games, and more. It’s a panel-to-panel fantasy story set in the world of Ephon, a land overtaken by a crystal wasteland called the Nightmare Forest.
But he’s really stepped up the interactivity with Myth of Eustro, layering information about the story of Romona and the world of Ephon into roll-overs and clickable icons. While the film features a lot skaters, it focuses on a core lineup of Tony Hawk, Steve Caballero, Rodney Mullen, Mike McGill, Lance Mountain, and Tommy Guerrero.
We complain about the major comic book news sites, from the mainstreamy-est to the indie-est. And after the end theme, Justique talks about the time Nick tried to get her to enter a wet t-shirt contest. He also talks about his Vertigo pitch for Swamp Things (yes, “Things”), which was rejected in favor of a China Mieville Swamp Thing comic book that never happened. Luckily, Ross was able to get the TMNT thing to finally happen and his four issue IDW Turtles story begins next month! Ross passed up an opportunity to draw an issue of the most recent Young Avengers series, plus he declined to work on the new Marvel Knights Hulk miniseries. Sleepwalker goes evil, Rick Sheridan dies, Sleepwalker is revealed to be faking it the entire time, and Rick is somehow really alive and his corpse didn’t decompose. It’s currently on Kickstarter and they’e got some amazing rewards including t-shirts, prints, posters, variant covers by legendary artists, and more. In these comic books, the series hits its stride as Sleepy gets some quirky new villains and has an awkward encounter with Ghost Rider.
Sleepwalker gets addicted to rainbow light, leading to fights with the Fantastic Four and his human host, Rick Sheridan.
Hank 300 and Nick review the three final volumes of the series (issues #43-60) — Scalped Vol. Hank and Nick want suggestions for the next graphic novel, book, or audiobook you’d like us to review. Shunka’s sexual reveal gets trumped by more extreme violence, while Dash’s daddy — Wade — returns to the Prairie Rose Indian Reservation. 8: You Gotta Sin to Get Saved and a recap of the Teen Center’s summer field trip to Fallingwater.


You can buy the trade paperback from Ross at conventions (or you can send him a message through deviantART). Spinning out of Comic Book Pitt #126, Scott and Nick discuss the struggle of selling indie comics at comicons. While self-published comics featuring original characters tend to be overlooked, questionably legal prints of licensed characters sell like crazy. Dave talks about what he’s got going on, and Shawn shares about the latest happenings in Gello Apocalypse (including his new time-traveling character and the impending reveal of the deal with Mr. Then Nick and Brandon talk about the genesis of their Haters collaboration, which leads Brandon to reveal that this five-page superhero story is the first time he’s gone completely digital with his drawing process. Plus, Brandon gushes about his favorite tips and tricks for using PhotoShop and Manga Studio for comic art! Michelle and Heather Nunnelly kick off off their first VACANT Bits episode with… teacup pigs?!? I fear my remarks will be very personal ones, for when I thought about what to say after Jens Byskov Jensen was kind enough to invite me to be tonighta€™s speaker, I was flooded with memories of past visits here, and what they have long meant to me. Smith, then and still the best and wisest man the Baker Street Irregulars have ever known, wrote an editorial called a€?The Implicit Holmesa€? for the brand-new Baker Street Journal.
And I still remember the excitement of that discovery a€” that there were others as besotted with the Sherlock Holmes stories as I was. It made sense to me that societies raised in the English language, rooted in English common law, and sharing the British literary heritage, would find common ground in the Sherlock Holmes stories. I spent a good deal of time with Niels-Jorgen Haagerup, with whom I had a professional as well as a literary link. I had Pentagon business at NATOa€™s Baltic Approaches Headquarters in Karup, and to me it seemed perfectly reasonable to stay in Aalborg, a scant 112 kilometers away.
This was a long time ago, that first visit in 1980 a€” thirty years ago, but I am still enchanted by my memories of that visit. Hea€™d sent the Klubben a subsequent letter saying that henceforth he would take it easy at the Klubbena€™s dinners and meetings, and perhaps enjoy an extra cigar and an extra drink.
But while it had been my privilege and honor to write it, it expressed the view of all seven of us: in fact initially eight, but Bliss Austin a€” a prince of the realm if ever the Baker Street Irregulars have had one a€” had died before Henrya€™s birthday came round. They belong here, to be preserved for the benefit of those to come who did not have the good fortune to know him. These books took time, effort, care, and expense to produce, each one was a different facet of his personality, they were greatly valued by all who received them, and nothing has ever taken their place in the hearts of those fortunate enough to count Henry Lauritzen as a friend.
A young man in 1934 has met the Irregulars, and badly wants to be one, but confesses to Christopher Morley that he doesna€™t know the Canon as well as Morley and his friends. I could put those words in his mouth in good conscience because I knew he had felt that way, and because I knew them to be true myself. I had Pentagon business at NATOa€™s Baltic Approaches Headquarters in Karup, and to me it seemed perfectly reasonable to stay in Aalborg, a scant 112 kilometers away.A  Karup had the NATO HQ, but Aalborg had Henry Lauritzen.
Over time, the AudioShocker has grown from a single weekly podcast into a full-fledged podcast network with tons of regular contributors and a wide range of content. Once the votes are in, Solomon crafts a new chapter that takes Romona and her Famylyr named Ephyx on another adventure. His pitch for a giant monster story called Shibbahyip was rejected by Tokyopop, and so was his original pitch to Oni for Wet Moon.
3, now available digitally from Comixology, this Wednesday in American comic shops, and July 9 from Amazon.
Michelle and Heather rant about the game’s characters, lack of establishment, horrid gameplay, sexism, and more. Our award-winning, festival loving horror short MASSACRE AT FEMUR CREEK is now available for purchase on DVD for a great low price. It was longer still before I read those words of Edgar Smitha€™s, but they remain as true for me today, decades later, as they were the first time I read them. Ita€™s true that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle had been notably deficient in appreciating Sherlock Holmes, but what did he know? I liked Kristian Hasle Cordtz, whose recent death I was startled to learn of, from the last issue of Sherlockiana, and I was positively charmed by his elderly and courtly father Eigil Cordtz.
I dona€™t remember a thing about the BALTAP part of it, except that one or two more visits there seemed called for, during the next few years, always staying in Aalborg, of course.
But I appreciate receiving Sherlockiana even if I dona€™t read Danish: it reminds me, each time an issue arrives, of both absent friends and the universality of Sherlock Holmes.
I used one of his caricatures of me on my personal stationery for years, until its striking resemblance fell victim to my increasing years, expanding waistline, and thinning hair. Our letter congratulating him upon his birthday was accompanied by the best box of cigars and best bottle of cognac our agents in Denmark could buy, for Henry with our compliments and love a€” perishable gestures of an imperishable affection for him.
Irregulars Stand upon the Terrace for many comrades, but there have not been many who meant as much as Henry did. Having lost friends along the way, I am glad to return to Aalborg to see the Rieck-SA?rensens again.
It was the first of his many books to be entirely devoted to Sherlock Holmes, and the first attempt by anyone to annotate the Canon for readers less familiar with the Victorian era, which must have seemed very distant in that fateful year of the Second World War. A moviea€™s other positive qualities dona€™t compensate very much, as far as wea€™re concerned, if it gets the Holmes-Watson relationship wrong. When the Sherlock Holmes stories seize someone this way, ita€™s because they speak to his fundamental values and ideal of friendship.
I knew that because I have seen that Irregular friendship at work around me, and felt it myself, for forty years now. Ia€™m glad to be able to speak to you about Henry Lauritzen, my friend still even though long departed. And Henry was everything I could have hoped for, devoted to Sherlock Holmes, welcoming to all who shared that devotion, utterly charming, and hospitable to a fault.
Cecily is brainwashed and Hank is trapped the bottom of a grain mill that’s slowly being filled with flour. And Bonus Brigade is a documentary about the documentary, featuring more interview footage combined with video of the original documentary’s debut. And shoutouts are shouted out… especially to Ross Campbell and his portrayals of romance in Wet Moon. But considering it's an homage to 80's slasher movies, we are proud to announce the film will also be getting a release on VHS format, which is the perfect way to commemorate our little film. The Sherlock Holmes stories are immortal, and the sentiments they arouse in us are what Smith said a€” timeless, and imperishable.
This was a fairly new one for me, but one of long standing for Henry and Aage, and to Bjarne and Niels-Jorgen in Copenhagen, and no doubt others.
I have not only my Klubben membership card signed by Henry in 1980, but a second one he gave me so I could mount them together, front and back, as you see here.
I used another in this 1980 article for Baker Street Miscellanea called a€?Sherlocki?? Holmes in Scandinavia,a€? which also included Henrya€™s caricatures of Aage here in Aalborg, Nils Nordberg in Oslo, Ted Bergman in Stockholm, and Henry himself a€” not to mention his colophon for The Cimbrian Friends of Baker Street.
Eventually one Stands upon the Terrace for people we have come to know, then soon for people wea€™ve come to consider friends, and eventually for people wea€™ve come to love. Nigel Bruce was a likeable old dodderer, and might be all right for the great unobservant public, who can hardly tell a weaver by his tooth or a compositor by his left thumb, but he was not the Canona€™s Watson, no matter how good a Sherlock Holmes Basil Rathbone made. Irregular friendships, drawn from the priceless, timeless one between Sherlock Holmes and John H. I used another in this 1980 article for Baker Street Miscellanea called a€?Sherlock Holmes in Scandinavia,a€? which also included Henrya€™s caricatures of Aage here in Aalborg, Nils Nordberg in Oslo, Ted Bergman in Stockholm, and Henry himself a€” not to mention his colophon for The Cimbrian Friends of Baker Street. At the core, we strive to give you the raw conversation as it was recorded, with minimal editing. I knew there was a big Sherlock Holmes following in Scandinavia, and I also knew the liona€™s share of it was in Denmark. They had Sherlock Holmes collections, of course a€” Aagea€™s particularly impressive one included obscure items I wouldna€™t have guessed had ever found their way out of the United States.
People throughout the Sherlockian world today recognize and prize Henrya€™s work, and I think always shall. It is a bittersweet thing, year by year, making you realize that we are part of a great procession of men and women who have at the very least one thing in common, but that that is a very great and wise thing: we all perceive something special in the Sherlock Holmes stories, and not only in them, but in each other.
Nothing in our lives since a€” careers, experience of war, occasionally crushing family responsibilities a€” effaces the memory of boyhood wonder and delight. Congratulations to Carrie Howarth, who killed it with humor and creativity, and Eric Shonborn, who wooed us with sheer artistic prowess.
I know he enjoyed drawing Sherlock Holmes subjects, but he never hesitated when asked to do one or two, or even more, for somebody else. The principle was as true then, and as true now, as it was in 1944 for Morley, in a world and time far more fractured and troubled than todaya€™s.
Our devotion to that body of timeless, imperishable literature is an expression of the possibility and value of friendship. I always had a wonderful time in Copenhagen, though perhaps that time with Bjarne was pushing things a bit.
In the 1980s when I co-edited Baker Street Miscellanea, he did any number of drawings for our pages, and everyone loved the humor in them.
It is what abides each time the tales have all been read again, and the book placed back on our shelf, until the time we take it down again for the next reading. Why, I finally asked them, was there such an i??obvious affinity for English things in Denmark? Not only did they amuse in their own right, you could see behind them a highly benevolent spirit in the artist.
It is what brings us together tonight on this occasion, and will again at future times and places. Why, I finally asked them, was there such an obvious affinity for English things in Denmark?
Aagea€™s reply was the best one imaginable, one Ia€™ve never forgotten, and have repeated many times elsewhere: England, he said, used to be a Danish country. Intimate moments shared between a husband and wife occur in the bedroom.A Although the husband and wife love their children in nearly every other sphere of their lives, this isA one sphere that isna€™t available to anyone else.
We are incredibly proud of the film and are hoping it will match (if not surpass) the success of its predecessor, the mutiple-award winning ARCHON DEFENDER.
The official DVD artwork is below, along with some of the links where you can either rent or purchase the film. This does not literally mean you must pray in the bedroom any more than it means you must pray in a closet. The concept of a bedroom is only used to convey the idea of an isolated and solitary place where you can be alone with the Lord.A When we enter into a time of prayer, it should be done at a place and time when we are not interrupted so the Holy Spirit can speak to our hearts and we can bare our hearts to Him. It's been a while but we've returned with plenty of activity over the last few months and a big apology to our fans for our tardiness in updating the website since the summer. Each of us should make it a daily priority to have this special time of communion with the Father through the Holy Spirit. This will change in the coming months as we have a few new projects in release and upcoming projects that will surely generate much buzz as we aim to unleash them onto the unsuspecting world. It doesna€™t matter where you and I spend this private time with God; it just matters that we actually do it.
Producer Morgan Muscat supplied us with this cool picture of his trek through Cinema 1 at Burlington Mall and the discovery of ARCHON sitting within some pretty good company. He often prayed on a mountaintop or out in the wilderness, far fromA the hustle and bustle of the city. There is nothing in the Bible that says the early morning hours areA more holy than other hours of the day, and nowhere does the Bible teach that praying on a mountaintopA is somehow better than other places. Jesus chose those early morning hours because it was aA moment when He could find solitude and quietness with God. The first official trailer from our latest short film, MASSACRE AT FEMUR CREEK, has been unveiled online via writer-director Kyle Hytonen's You Tube channel. We are excited to be collaborating with award-winning filmmaker Kyle Hytonen and his A Henry Krinkle Production company on this fun little short film.
Enjoy the picture below of actor John Migloire in character as The Shape and keep checking back for more updates on the film's completion and release date.
So if you really want to be with the Lord, you will find time for that as well.A Think about it. Filming has commenced in Hamilton, Ontario and Burlington, Ontario under the direction of Hytonen and starring John Migliore and Heather Dicke.
Recently, the film launched a campaign on Indiegogo to raise $1100 and wound up (to date) collecting a surprising $2414. Check out the teaser poster below and visit the Indiegogo campaign for more info about the film. But with all the distractions of modern life we often find ourselves living on spiritual snack food instead of a healthy diet of God's Word.
As we continue to develop short and feature films, as well as promote our new demo reel feature, we are hard at work promoting local artists and community events. Such is the case with the upcoming June 8th Car-Free street festival happening on Palladium Way in Alton Village. We are proud to be a part of this amazing community event and are happy to finally unveil our freshly completed new video to help raise awareness of said event.
Here are seven suggestions that may help you have a better quiet time in a noisy world.A 1. We were approached a few weeks back to create this video by local artists and have done so using footage from last year's event. Enjoy the world exclusive premiere of the promotional video by visiting this link or check it out via our WELCOME page.

Our tiny horror-film noir short film THE DEVIL WALKS AMONG YOU recently added another festival date to its successful roster, this time for the 2014 edition of the Sudden Impulse Film Festival in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.


We are excited to promote our award-winning title yet again and hope that people turn out to support great independent films such as this one. The screening happens on Saturday May 10th at the Big Picture Cinema on Gerard Street East at 8:30pm. Not only are we focused on inspired filmmaking and photography opportunities, we are how branching out into offering services for Demo Reels. If you want to have a more meaningful quiet time, view Bible reading and prayer as a daily dialog with God, a daily meeting.A 3. We understand just how important a demo reel is to emerging and talented filmmakers and actors, so we are offering top-notch, professional service along with affordable prices to help showcase what you have to offer the world. DON'T FEEL GUILTYHave you ever heard someone confess, "I'm having trouble keeping a regular quiet time.
If you are looking to have us create your demo reel or are merely wanting to browse around, we invite you to check out our newly added DEMO REELS page where you can look into our rates and what we can offer you. With ARCHON DEFENDER currently in distribution around the world, distirbution plans ramping up for ORIGIN: A CALL TO MINDS and production underway onA COLD DARK MIRRORA along with a slew of short film projects in development, we trust that 2014 will be our busiest year yet. And we hope for your continued support as we grow and expand into different areas, which will be announced soon. From all of us at Moonlit Road Entertainment, we welcome 2014 and wish you all a very Happy New Year. FIND A PLAN THAT FITS YOUMany people say, "I love to cook but I hate to decide what's for dinner." The same principle is true when it comes to a daily quiet time. There are manyA good Bible reading guides available from other publishers or your church denomination. Also, Morgan was featured in the 2013 edition of the Burlington community guide, which he also spoke about his humbling beginnings as a student filmmaker and to where he is today.
Then you won't have to spend your quiet time in "menu planning" and you can experience "the joy of cooking."A 5. The article and photo are available only in print, but a photograph has been made available below. We can take a little walk, maybe get our feet wet, and then lie on a blanket and listen to the waves. The film gets an exclusive digital engagement with Google Play starting tomorrow, October 1, 2013. Since 2008, the film has been turning heads and it has been nominated and has won several awards for is achievement in special effects and production design.
Congratulations to the directors and cast who combined to make a special type of film that continues to wow audiences.
