Pictory Showcase: Sorry, Mom!

Sorry, Mom!

In retrospect, I was oblivious to the agony I put my mom through: countless nights of wait and worry over what I was doing and when I’d return home, while I was busy believing that I was invincible. It took being a mom to finally get it. Though my children are a mere three and six years old, there is premonition in their daring. I know that one day it will be me carrying that weight of worry on my back. But for now, I will savor them and pray that they survive the bravado of their youth to become parents to children of their own, who will remind them of how fragile invincibility can be.

Aeonn.net Mobile Version

I reference my blog from time to time when I am out and about.

Accessing a WordPress blog on a mobile phone can take a long time depending on theme selection, sidebar items, amount of content, etc. I sometimes dread pulling up my site on my iPhone. I decided to change that.

Using WPtouch, Aeonn.net now has a sleek mobile version that can be accessed optimally by iPhone, iPod touch, Android, Palm Pre and BlackBerry Storm users.

You can go to Aeonn.net on your mobile and, if you own one of the aforementioned devices, the site will be lean, clean, quick, and without degraded functionality. Comments can be left, in-post pictures and video remain, and the site can still be searched.

Marwencol

I watched some of season 2 of This American Life yesterday and had to research Marwencol.

Marwencol is a fantasy world created by Mark Hogancamp.

After being beaten into a brain-damaging coma by five men outside a bar, Mark built a 1/6th scale World War II-era town in his backyard. Mark populated the town he dubbed “Marwencol” with dolls representing his friends and family and created life-like photographs detailing the town’s many relationships and dramas.

A documentary about Mark Hogancamp and his fantasy world, Marwencol, premiered at the South by Southwest festival this year, where it won the award for best documentary. Screenings are taking place now on the west coast.

This :30 clip tells it all. Amazing.

In this clip from the upcoming documentary “MARWENCOL”, Mark explains how he offers his friends a chance to live an alternate life in his fantasy world of Marwencol.
