So...I guess I did give you all permission to skip Thursdays, didn't I? My intent on the the 5th day of the week is to dish about me, my likes, dislikes, this, that and the other. I'll warn you now - this may be a whole lot of, "So...did you watch that show on t.v...." Because - I spend WAY too much of my time watching the ol' boob tube. Is there serioulsy a scientific study out there that equates t.v. time with the loss of brain cells? (that would explain a lot, actually...)
Anywho!! Some of my faves of late tend to be reality tv shows about really creative people. Project Runway is the one that got me ADDICTED!! And I can't sew a stitch.
I also love, loVE, LOVE Top Chef. (and can you believe the SyFy channel gave Marcel his own show???)
I watched one called Work of Art last year. I can't say that I totally GOT or agreed with some of the art that the judges seemed to love... Still, I'd like to see it come back for another season. (yeah, I also can't draw or paint or sculpt or any of these cool things, so big KUDOS to those who can!)
But, the new one that has caught my attention is a show on the SyFy Channel called Face Off.
As you can see - it's a challenge for Hollywood make-up artists to turn a human into something....else. This is most certainly an art form! It even involves a little chemistry. I saw guys and girls transformed into beetles, elephant-like creatures, and strange ostrich/human hybrids. There was even a rather disturbing prom date disaster. Some amazing talent - truly!
As writers, I know a lot of us can really appreciate the different avenues of creativity that other people explore. So, tell me - What's your Favorite other-than-writing art form?
Happy Thursday! Oh - btw, here's another plug for my 100+ followers celebration. If you're not in on it yet, please enter HERE!
