Congrats! You're the Marshmallow Fluff

This is the time of season, when I decide if I'm going to do another year of the movie a day challenge on my movie blog, or join in on a different challenge?  I had planned a bunch of Hallowe'en themed projects for this year, but none of them were completed in time for Hallowe'en, as I needed to wait till the stores were selling Hallowe'en merchandise. So, this cut my actual project time down to a couple of weeks. The tarot cards have been talking about ending a cycle, beginning a new one and not taking things so seriously.  I'm the type of person who over thinks everything. I will get an idea, begin the planning stage, and within a few days start asking "what is my goal of this, why am I doing it, how am I going to get it done?"  and most of the time, talk myself out of it all together; or just end up feeling so pressured and overwhelmed that I give up.

I have a really difficult time finishing projects. One of the reasons I did the original movie a day challenge few years ago.

I've also been feeling guilty about not blogging on this bloggy-blog the last few years. Giving all my love and attention to the movie blog and recently, my youtube.  So, plan B was suppose to have been a project to blog solely on here.  That fell apart at the seams without me even realizing it.

This brings me to my last post, where I was talking about the way society has become whipped cream and blah blah blah.  

I woke up this morning and realized that somehow in the last 48hours, I became whipped cream.

What was the plan B? It was simply to throw out the dateline for the Hallowe'en projects. Instead of  running around like a small tornado trying to cram it all into two weeks time span; I decided to settle into the idea of doing them over the course of the year. That way, when next year comes around, projects are done I just have to edit the final footage. So to speak.

Perfect! Great! Makes total sense!   Only, half of the projects would fit better on the movie blog, and all of them fit better on youtube.  So sort of back where I started. Sort of.  This is where my facebook was suppose to come into play.  As I am part of a blogging foodie group, I need to use my facebook to promote the group. Fine, that part was done.  Or was it?  My facebook is from the prehistoric age of facebook.  Needless to say, issues and glitches every time I tried to change settings to share stuff.

Heads up for plan C. Become a public figure. Create a new and improved page for the group showings and as a place to link the projects. Which worked smooth. So so smooth. Problem solved right. Right?  Yeah, for the most part. Only, since I've been working on there, adding what needs to be added for the group and building the page; I realize the project has already failed. Already gone off the path and morphed into something completely different.

This would be the whipped cream. I've turned into the internet society's version of whipped cream I just ranted about.  How did that happen?

Worst part of this; is that when I originally got the idea for the project few weeks ago, I knew it was only a starting point. That it was meant to morph into something else, or lead me down a different direction. Hell, it was even in the cards! The Fool card telling me to have faith and just dive in, the Tower and Ten of Swords telling me endings and destruction would be needed to grow, the Hermit and Final Judgement talking about new windows of opportunity, the Three of Pentacles talking about art in all it's form.

Moral of today's realization; you don't always see the big picture till the linkage is hubbed together. Yeah, basically, I'm trying to be cute when I say one thing leads to another even when you don't think they connect.

And before anyone asks why I titled this marshmallow fluff when I'm talking about whipped's got a slight more substance than cream. That and it's sticky. Linkage, connections, sticking things together...that would be my over thinking again.

Till next time

p.s. there's a link to the new facebook in that fluff.

Random October 2017

I was coming in here to post a photo. Then I changed my mind.

I had just posted to instagram, with a picture I'd done for Hallowe'en. Every so often, I've been doing a countdown for the season. Today the theme was bats.  

Doesn't matter. None of it in fact matters. In fact, it mattered so little that I just took nearly two months off from any kind of socializing online; and the only one's who seemed to notice were the two instagram followers who unsubscribed.  Dude, I really hate the fact that everything I do in life now is subheaded in my mind with "how's that going to look on video?"

I am a dinosaur. I know this, and own up to it very much so. I grew up in an age where not everyone got to be the star attraction, because not everyone had the talent. Now, talent is not required.  Well, that's not completely true now is it? You have to be talented at selling yourself.  You have to be able to wiz around the twitter and whatever else is the tool of power and hold that crown of fate in a bare handed white knuckle grip of fearless determination while hoping the fake modesty rings true enough.  

I can't do any of that.

I'm just a 43 year old woman who doesn't fit. Hell, I no longer even fit in my own dress.  There is a running theme in a lot of vampire stories, that points out how the vampires get stuck in the era that they became vampires; and how they need to constantly have something/someone new to keep them remotely in touch with modern living. That's a cliche for a reason. This dinosaur has hit that cliched wall. 

I don't get society in 2017. Lest not beyond the idea that we have become nothing but whip cream. I hate whip cream.

Countdown says : 16 Days till Hallowe'en 2017

Still the Ghoul Next Door; Dude

Spudguns!  I've got to make it a habit to start blogging on here again. One of the reasons I've been doing stuff on youtube the way I have, was to be able to add it here. And my laziness has gotten me sidetracked big time.

Anyone else not happy with the latest goings on with Twin Peaks? Seriously, we waited over twenty five years for it, and it's're getting me aren't you? No, you all dig it totally and I'm the only one who is disappointed by the new season of it.

Sure, take the side of the famous tv show and not the ghoul.

Here's what I had to say a few weeks ago on my youtube.

March 29th 2017

Spudguns!  Hows it wherever it is you are today?  It's 11:42am EST where I am, and it's holding steady at +1C with a windchill of -5C.  Now that that's out of the way...

I've got a few new videos up on my youtube channel. Some of them are movie related, some food, and some occult/tarot.  As you know my lovely Spudguns! the major aspects of my life.  But, I'm now toying with the idea of sectioning off the movie/cooking stuff - which is what my movie blog is all about - by going full on horror hostess. Like, costume. Or the very lest, one outfit I use just for those vids. That way, the "spiritual" stuff isn't...yeah sounds like too much work and needless pomp to me too.  I've done the costume and wig in the past more than once, and though it makes it more suitable, it's been done to death.

So what do you think...should I?

I was going to add the next episode of the one show here with a tarot video, but damn it, I'm too lazy. So here's the link to my youtube if you want to see what I'm blubbering on about  (Ardeth Blood the Ghoul Next Door)    If you think I need to Elvira it up, then leave me a comment on there please. And if you haven't subscribed to me on there, please do. I need to feel loved and desired.

I have to admit, after two years of having the channel, today I saw I finally have a category. I was very excited. When I logged in to it this morning, I found there were a couple of other youtubers listed in my "related channels".  Yay me! And it only took two years for it to happen. Who said success isnt' sweet served frozen.

Honestly, I don't remember it being this difficult to translate my written wittiness and hyperactive humour into physical performance before.

Anyways, till later...Creeping Screams!

March 2017 6th

Oh my gremlins!  I have been having one of those...yeah.  Well, my lovely Spudguns! I've been meaning to come in and do this post for like a month. I just haven't found the time, which is zero excuse I know.

We are now in the Venus retrograde which started on March 4th and runs until April 15th.  This means, that all relationships and money...yes money as Venus is the planet of wealth and abundance; will be effected during this time. And trust me, the last few hours of my life proves that.

For those of you that have been reading my movie blog, you know I had started hosting an all vampire movie and book club last year called Night Bleeds. You might also know that I have my "what that movie inspired me to do" series of posts. Lots of times, I'll do the "inspired by" stuff along with the book/movie club. Well, I decided to take this one step farther, and have begun doing some of them as videos for my youtube channel.

Here's episode one.

2017 planetary stuff

Spudguns!  I know I haven't been in here on this bloggy-blog in a while. Life happens. Anyways, here's the list for this year's retrogrades.  

Mercury retro- Dec 19th 2016 until direct Jan 8th 2017,   now, this is the one we are currently in. As I've said before, Mercury retrogrades tend to screw with computers, travel, communications, cars, and accidents.   There is one on April 9th until May 3rd, one on Aug 12th until Sept 5th, and one on Dec 3rd until Dec 22nd

Jupiter retro - Feb 6th until June 9th

Venus retro -March 4th until April 15th

Saturn retro- April 6th until Aug 25th

Pluto retro- April 20th until Sept 28th

Neptune retro June 16th until Nov 22nd

Uranus retro Aug 3rd 2017 until Jan 2nd 2018

That's about all I have for you at the moment. Remember, given Mercury is the planet that retros most often, it's the one we have to play nice with the most.

Blurred out in September

This just proves that no matter how good I think I am at taking photos, I'm really crap at it. Timing is everything, and my timing is so off.

Spudguns! Been way too long, which is a bad habit I've gotten into. I'm trying to break that habit, and a few other bad ones.  Some of you might know that all my blogging love has been put towards my movie blog the last few years. Where, not only do I talk about movies, I am part of a movie and food blogging group called Food n'Flix Club. Where we create dishes inspired by movies every month. And, where I've been writing my never ending soap opera. My blog not the food group silly silly spudguns!

Yes, I know, I have the crafting projects and the "supernatural style hunter's guide" crafts still to finish. They've been started...just haven't worked on them in a while. See, bad habits.

One of the things keeping me busy in the real world of not blogging, is that I've been doing tarot card readings. And I got to tells ya, sometimes, what you learn about people by doing these is not worth risking your time, energy or health. Still have a migraine from the last one the other day.

And this beautiful man beside me is Lady Fantasia LaPremiere, 2015 winner of Wiggins Wig Wars, and multi time winner of Queen of the North.  aka my buddy John. Who's ability to make a vegan chocolate and raspberry cake is a bad habit everyone needs to learn to love.

And now coffee. kiss kiss noise
