    Does the HTF have what it takes to make a movie?

    I'm in the works to make a short film and I thought it would be fun to let the gang here help create the screenplay. Hear me out, the location is an isolated farm house with an old overgrown barn, it lies about 50 feet away. The house is filled with old furniture, complete with old magazines...

    I'm filming a movie next week!

    Alright, it's just a small project that I've cooked up but it could be quite fun. I wrote a small screenplay that's about 40 odd pages long. It's a horror film. I'm shooting it with a Sony Digital Video Camera Recorder. (Luckily I have a tri-pod to help steady some shots. ;)) We're going to...

    Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are having a baby.

    I thought he adopted in the past because he couldn't have kids. I guess not... or maybe... naaaah... Click here for the story

    Is there any way to make a mock webpage?

    Here is what I mean. As a prank I want to take an existing web page like "Crime library" and put a photo of my friend on the main page along with a description of what he did. I can change the photo, I've figured out that much. (Save page as > web page complete. Go into the folder and change...

    Counting to 10 at twenty months old. Parents please chime in...

    My daughter (Madison) just turned 21 months old a couple of weeks ago and she has been doing very well. Our daycare provider is starting to use the term "gifted" but I'm a little more level headed than that. At least I would like to think so.:D Madison has been talking since she was just shy...

    Child care: Should I use a neighbour?

    I'm moving into a new area and it turns out that my neighbour (2 doors down) is a very experienced child care provider. The location would be ideal but I'm quite the pessimist. What if... for some reason or another, things don't work out with her. On the other hand, she seems really nice and...

    Who do you want to see competing in the Amazing Race family Edition? I know that it's not going to be airing for quite some time but I was just curious to know what "celebrity" family you might want to see competing. I think the Osbournes would be quite interesting.:laugh: How about the...

    BTK suspect charged with 10 murders

    The BTK suspect Dennis Rader has been charged with 10 murders. Not too bright. After all this time I wonder what made him come back. I feel sorry for this guy who as a child witnessed his mothers brutal murder at the hands of Dennis Radar. Sad It seems like there are more and more...

    I got schmucked by an old lady doing 80!

    That's 80 Kph... Madison (my 1 year old daughter), myself, and Nova the family wonder-dog were in a really terrible car accident on Sunday. A 79 year old woman ran a red light and totalled our Focus wagon. It wasn't one of those "yellow changing to red" situations, it was a clear red light...

    *** THE TERMINAL Review Thread

    I managed to see "The Terminal" at a special DreamWorks advanced screening last night. I must say that I was very impressed with Spielberg's latest offering. Not only was it extremely funny, but at times it was also very touching. Tom Hank's does a top notch job of playing Viktor Navorski, a...

    "Finding Nemo" Layer Change Question.

    Is the layer change on Finding Nemo just after the mine explosions by the sub? (Just before the birds sitting on the water) My Momitsu gave a slight flicker but didn't even pause. I am just curious to know if that's where it is. Thanks,

    My dog is going in for surgery... :(

    He has been vomiting for over a day and he can't seem to hold anything down. I took him into the vet and they did some blood work and took some X-rays, then the vet found the blockage in the X-ray. They're going to try an Endoscopy first to see if they can find it and pull it out, if that fails...

    Anyone else here own the Momitsu DVD player?

    It's truly amazing! Upscaling DVD to 1080i on my LT240K projector looks incredible! I've run into one small downfall, Disney's Dinosaur DVD won't play on it. It freezes up during the opening scene inside the egg. I've heard one other person mention this (on another forum). Anyone else here...

    Air Conditioner Unit: Vent Open or Closed??

    My Brother has an air conditioner that sits in the window of his apartment. He called me tonight and asked me if the vent should be set to open or closed. I have no idea? I was thinking that if it is really hot and humid outside that he should set it to closed. Any ideas?
