GISHWHES & Random Acts Presents: Do a Good Deed, Break a World Record

Only GISHWHES could get me to walk into a store like this.So you might have noticed things have been a little quiet around here. That's due to GISHWHES going on and my head being preoccupied with things like obtaining a pumpkin large enough to fit a child in and how to recreate a scene from a locally shot movie. Things will continue to be quiet until Tuesday when GISHWHES is over and I start suffering post-crazy withdrawl.

Anyway as part of GISHWHES, we're all trying to beat the world record for most number of Random Acts of Kindness in a short time. Here's how you can join in beating a world record and help the world be a better place at the same time in the lovely form of a canned email:


Want to help me with the giant crazy scavenger hunt, but don't want to do anything embarrassing or ridiculous? Pledge to do a random act of kindness. Help break a world record and assist my team in getting more points!

I'm taking part in a
Guinness World Record attempt where we're trying to get 100,000 people to pledge to do a Random Act of Kindness before the end of 2012.

It will cost you nothing and I would love for you to help me with this. All you need to do is click on the link below and then pledge that you will do a Random Act of Kindness before the end of the year. This will not add you to an email list; it will just make you part of a huge group of people who want to better the world... and break a world record in the process.

Please remember to enter my email - LDAFLYNN@GMAIL.COM - on the form as your referrer, and email me back if you have any questions.

Thank you for being awesome and making the world a little bit better.

See you guys on Tuesday. Do something crazy between now and then. It'll be fun.


Trailer Park Friday: Rainy Weekend Entertainment

So it's supposed to rain most of the weekend around here, so our plans are revolving around cozy couches with entertaining television and book reading. But we might venture out to see Looper, a brand new science fiction movie with Joseph Gordon-Levitt that looks super awesome. Have a trailer.

Doctor Who is finishing it's short run of episodes tomorrow night with a pair of episodes that I have a feeling will freak me out and make me cry in equal portions. Here's a clip from "The Angels Take Manhattan":

Finally this is not a trailer to anything in particular. This is a promo for GISHWHES or the Greatest International Scavenger Hunt the World Has Ever Seen. I participated last year and it was insane amounts of fun. You should join up. It's madness in all the very best ways.
