Tiglet moving to Sesame Street???

 

Well, he wishes! Sesame Studios are looking for new ideas, so what could be newer than a talking Tiger (that isn’t Tony or Tigger bouncing everywhere?) So after a few days of mulling it over, I put a pitch together, watched a couple of their Youtube videos and reminisced about Bert and Ernie, The Count and the Cookie Monster, who are all still going, along with Big Bird and a few new characters.

The obvious thing to pitch was THE TIGLET SHOW! My attempt five years ago to do something Muppet-like. As Experimental No-Budget Filmmaking goes, this did stretch the budget!

Oh my Geeky Goddess! Where did I come up with this? WHY? Yes, I have actually gone back to watch it and it was experimental, (maybe emphasis on mental?) making it by myself had its challenges, you can tell I was running out of ideas by the third episode, not sure stitching together previously made videos worked either. Two things I was pleased about were Professor Von Ool and then the GrumpyCats, with their sarcy Waldorf and Statler-like comments at the end.

So, it’s all done and pitched. I attached my Creativity and Imagination playlist from Youtube and it’s just a matter of seeing what happens, if anything.

 

I know I blogged sometime last summer about how Darci Farmer blew me away with her ventriloquism on America’s got talent last year, but maybe I do need to light a fire underneath the Puppetry again. Maybe try and make an original puppet and see who else I can rope into it. Come up with a new project. Things like Avenue Q and the Happytime Murders are a bit too-adult-like, it’s things like The Muppets, The Storyteller, Fraggle Rock, even Labyrinth and Dark Crystal I’m more interested in.

Anyhoo, I’ve started planning the sequel to Tiglet’s Time Travels, titled Tiglet’s Time Wars, funnily enough- cos, like, it’s a sequel and there’s temporal shenanigans going on all over the multiverses. I did think of putting in ideas from my aborted Star Trek Fan Film- Preservation, plus stuff I thought up for Infinite Whoniverses and a kids Time Travel show- there’s an idea- kids and puppets, like a junior Farscape, that’s the way to do it! (As Punch would say!)

Anyway, a week’s gone by since I made my pitch, so no news is good news, right? Probably not, but I live in a perpetual state of Hope, even if it is the false kind.

 

INFINITE TIGLETVERSES- COMING SOON!

itv2I’ve wanted to make some original stories/Films for a while now. It seems whenever I focus on Dr. Rrr/Infinite Whoniverses other things don’t get done- like the Photo/hiking updates

STORIES- They’re everywhere. But sometimes you have to go out and find them.

The good ones, the Best ones are the hardest to find. You have to go further and farther out to catch them.

This year, Infinite Tigletverses is boldly going places never been before, doing something completely different and being more ambitious than ever. Seeking Stories-

And no matter where it takes us,

We’re gonna find ‘em!!

Infinite Tigletverses- Autumn/Winter 2017/2018

 

 

Anything can happen Tuesday!

disneymp_letter_bottom

Well, I went walking anyway! I did start by working on a superhero short story for an anthology submission, but my family were driving me crazy, so got out of the house and headed west into Liverpool. I thought why stop there and then thought-let’s get out further, see how far I could go. So got to the far side of the Wirral and thought- why isn’t there a ferry over or a tunnel under the Dee so I could get to Wales? Damn, so went on a circular amble from West Kirby up to Hoylake then along the beach and back down to the Marine Lake.

Might not sound that exciting, but it helped me complete a section of the Wirral Circular Trail I had not done before (just leaving a section between Hooton and Eastham to do- huzzah!) and giving me space to clear my head and get a bit of inspiration. I have to say I am chuffed with the results, four new vids in a day and an interesting NEW Series- I have had a few ideas of what to do next, though I’m back in work so there’s a time and locale limit- basically having to get to Chester every day, no matter where I go.

So, there we are, Anything Can Happen Tuesdays have begun!!!

MY 6TH BLOGGERVERSARY- PART 2-

MY 6TH BLOGGERVERSARY- PART 2-

Okay, picking up from where I left off the other day. ITA is now an archive, but I will end up putting up new posts at some point, today it’s Tiglet’s turn!!

I have been wanting to do some kind of Photography page, maybe on Facebook, along with Ian’s Travelblog Adventures, Tiglet’s Travels and Infinite Whoniverses, but four pages? Three blogs and Pinterest, plus Linked In, Youtube and Twitter, how much can I juggle? Well the ball’s been dropped on everything at one point or another, so I need to focus, consolidate, and I guess the non-updates on hiking have meant that’s the one to go. Not that I’d ever give up hiking, just writing about it.

SO, rolling everything together. I have sorted a page on Pinterest, but since it only let’s you post one pin at a time, it’ll take ages to get what I want, I guess I’ll just have to pick my best pictures. It’s a start.

And with all that said, I’m off to Beatleweek (sigh) It never ends does it?

Good job I like a challenge then!!

 

 

MY 6TH BLOGGERVERSARY- PART 1-

anniversary-2xMY 6TH BLOGGERVERSARY- PART 1-

‘So you can’t fly if you never try’-

Reluctant Heroes- Attack on Titan

 

So, today is my 6th Bloggerversary- hurrah for me!!

There are times when I wonder why I bother- The only Travelblog I have to write up is going up to Pex Hill, so I’m wanting to pack in Ian’s Travelblog Adventures, maybe archive the page and try and focus on turning Tiglets page into a photography page, put all my eggs in one basket so to speak. I’m also not sure what I’m doing for Beatleweek this time. Of course I’ll be catching the Mona Lisa Twins, but I’ll have to see who else is on.

I just know I’ve been fed up, disillusioned and frustrated with things for a while now. Trying to make changes, apply for jobs, write new stories rather than the four I keep submitting to magazines. It has become something of a ritual for me to spread a dozen half-completed, completed-but-need-editing and just-begun stories over my bed and go through them a sentence at a time. I have edited one story (Captivated- now Making the First Move) but after a month it’s still doing my head in. I think it’s because I saw a lot of anthologies and magazines with upcoming deadlines, so at least one is ready for the end of the week! (Splickety magazine deadline 26th August- All’s fair in love and uniform issue) So that’s one done anyway!

One thing that I have really enjoyed is doing more photography with the Cosplaying and anime crowd. The Japan Day on Saturday was brilliant, so shall have to post photos from that. Indeed, maybe I should stop wasting time with the elitist BBC and western media and submit stuff to Anime and Manga companies instead. Tiglet as a Manga? That could work! Tiglets Time Travels as an Anime- oh yes indeedy!! I am working on separate reviews for Attack on Titan and other anime, but I am surprising myself by how much I’m enjoying watching just first episodes of things and seeing what happens, dizzying but good.

So, change- I need it!!! How’s it going to happen? Zod knows, because I’m Clueless!

PS- I wrote all that this morning and a few things have happened since then-

Firstly, I have introduced drop-down menus to archive and categories on blog- viola!

Secondly, I exported Ian’s Travelblog Adventures onto a Page instead, so it’s still loading so I don’t know if it’s worked, here’s hoping!  (It didn’t!)

Nope, so I included a link, which mean I’ve got two ‘About’ pages now, looks like I’ll have to continue this tomorrow. Right, I need cake- make a wish!
