Shampooing the Angel



Skellig: The Owl Man is film based on a children's book by David Almond - Lucky Brits got it on television, but it's available on netflix. Did you rescue a baby bird when you were a child? I know I did, fed it raw hamburger in the garden shed. It disappeared one day, the cat may have gained access.

I'd recommend this film for anyone with kids or without. A certain gross factor, but worth it.

Oh! forgot to put in a link to the trailer (but my sister says it's blocked in the UK for copyright reasons)

Sounds like a good book indeed. My best friend was the bird rescuer. I was raised with Banty chickens and my brother and I spent many cold nights trying to save the peeps.

I love line drawing. It's the one thing artistically at which I still excel mainly because I don't do anything else any longer.

I did. They died.

(Did I ever tell you I watched "Mary and Max" on your recommendation? Loved it!)

Thanks, guys - Yes, Fresca, you told me about mary and Max, I think this film is now my second favorite (snowcake being the first).

I watched this movie maybe two weeks ago. Yes gross factor, but really enjoyed it! Never heard of it before, so very cool to have you mention in.
Cool sketch.

I'm not much for movies but this does sound intersting.

I hate copyright grounds. Especially when things are blocked on them.

ArtSparker said...

But Chris, they are good for the garden - you just have to dig them in.

ArtSparker said...

Mouse, it is available streaming on netflix. A great one to watch with children or grandchildren, you may want to wait a few years for Ms. T though.

Tim Roth is always enough for me.

Snow Cake. Do you know I met Sigourney Weaver here in Salamanca in 1992? We shooted a scene directed by Ridley Scott. Unfortunately (for me) the scene was ruled out of the film.
