Thanks to everyone who voted for Tim's film, Time Chaser, in the International Youth Silent Film Festival!    We won't know the results of the viewer voting until June 7th.   

Tim's film did not win the judging contest unfortunately.  There were a LOT of really good films.  I was very impressed.  It was so cool to see Tim's film on a big screen and with live organ music accompaniment.   The guy (kid) who played the organ is one of the organizers of the event.  Turns out he is the son of someone I grew up with - a former childhood neighborhood friend who is now in local politics.   Small world.   

This is the second year for the event and it's become so popular that it has gone international.  And is expanding outside of Portland in the US as well.   They have several regional and international events coming up.   

Tim was not upset to lose.  He thought the two winning films were great.  He ended the evening saying, "I'm going to blow them out of the water next year."  =D

Here are some photos I took before and after the event.   It was mostly too dark inside the theater to get any decent shots.   This is the old Portland Hollywood Theater, which was built in 1926 and in in the National Register of Historic Places.

My 15 year old son just passed his driver's permit test. 

Watch out!

growyourwings: (Default) HIGH SCHOOL.  OMG I'm old!  (grin!)

But I must admit it's weird for our youngest to now be in high school.  When I was going through all his photos yesterday for his picspam I was reminded why the phrase "time flies" is a cliche.  Because it's true.  It really does seem like yesterday that Emily was born--much less Tim.

I hope he likes high school.  He is going to have a rough time getting back in shape.  He was supposed to be working out with the football team since mid-August but other than the first week of practice I couldn't wake him up before I had to go off to work.  So he's going to have a rough couple of weeks at least catching up with the rest of the team.

And I'm watching the clock.  Because Best Buy opens at 10 (I checked last night).  I'm so there when they open their doors.  It's S3 DVDs and the Impala!  Hee!

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 3 sentences on your LJ along with these instructions.
5. Don’t you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest.
6. Tag five people.

"The idea that a scientist should be responsible for his discoveries is absurd--a scientist is very busy trying to find new ways to think, and he's not in tune with traditional ways to think." "No Ordinary Genius. The Illustrated Richard Feynman" by Christopher Sykes.

I tag anyone else who is interested in doing this.

On another note: Just returned from neurologist visit for my son. After 8 years his EEGs are normal and we will be transitioning him off of the meds. Scary. But good.
