Words cannot express how happy I am to recieve this!!! Thank you!!!
Mr. Donnie Bibbs deserves the credit for being a wonderful model. Therefore, he inscribed it himself :) And thank you to alexandretta for her wonderful image of Donnie, he wouldn't be here without her :)

P.S. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! \O/
So... I like the idea of one of those cloth stitched dollie's for mollie. But alas, my artistic skills fail me and I could only get as far as her head... Maybe others could add on :)
And I'll keep on trying.
Nearly every hitRECord request that has come out recently begins with “EVERYONE W/ A CAMERA: RECord yourself on Camera….” Something I am heavily resistant to do. And though I have a camera and I have things to say about certain topics, I feel that my involvement is not nearly what it could be. Simply because I do not want to release my physical appearnace.
I do not post pictures of myself publicly. Which is evident based off of what I’ve posted to this site thus far. I think much of it stems from my parents telling me not to tell people or show people over the internet about myself, for security reasons and what not. But, there is another part of myself that is simply hesitant to allow people to see what I look like. To see the person who is behind all the words I post and the photographs I take.
I have yet to post a picture of myself or post a video recording of myself. Which has never been an issue in terms of my involvement on hitRECord.
Given the requests lately. And the fact that when you go to contribute a RECord to a collaboration, and you click the drop-down for the contribution request, you see a list of "EVERYONE WITH A CAMERA: RECord yourself...". It sometimes feels a bit discriminatory (which is clearly not the intention! and perhaps 'discriminatory' is the wrong word). But I understand that, ideally, a video of a person talking about these experiences is what is wanted and needed. And I know it is necessary.
But so far, my physical appearance is something I keep private. Sticking to text posts for the time being. And all the while, I feel that I am not contributing as much I would like to. It will take some time if I choose to record myself later. I don’t know if I’ll break my rule soon to do so. I would really like to.
Are there others who feel this way on here? And if so, how did you overcome it?
RECord TITLE: donnie bibbs-tv
TITLE OF EPISODE / TITLE OF SEGMENT: RE: SPACE / GOODBYE
RECord Description: a napping Mr. Donnie Bibbs
LOCATION: New Mexico, United States
ONE LINE BIO: a happy medical student enjoying life with a great cup of coffee
LINK TO THE RECord THAT WAS INCLUDED IN THE EPISODE: http://www.hitrecord.org/records/1374549
TELL US SOMETHING INTERESTING ABOUT YOUR CONTRIBUTION: A corkboard that fell off my wall, scrap construction paper, and a gum wrapper made Mr. Donnie Bibbs a living room. Mr. Donnie, a character envisioned by the talented Alexandretta and dubbed Donnie Bibbs by the one and only MadisenMusic, was hiding in my desk drawer from a prior project. It was time for him to reemerge from his cave. To a new one. On a couch. He seems quite content there.
It amazes how trustworthy people are of a complete stranger they meet in a coffee shop. Being a student, I frequent a number of coffee places to seclude myself to hours of studying. Seeing total strangers sitting at the table next to me, in a chair across the room. All tinkering away on their laptops, iPads, tablets. And each time, a stranger, whose name I don't know, and I'm sure they do not know mine, will lean over and ask "do you mind watching my computer while I go to the restroom?"
It such a strange interaction. No names. Just a short question, followed by courteous "okay" or "sure". And when the person returns, there isn't much said. Perhaps a "thank you" with a terse smile or if I have headphones on, then a nod and a smile from the other is all that is needed.
To me, it doesn't make much sense. Because if it were in any other setting, most people wouldn't leave such pricey belongings to be watched by a complete stranger that they've had minimal interactions with.
Besides, what makes me seem like a trustworthy person? Not saying, I am not a trustworthy person. But I am after all, a complete stranger. They don't know me, and I sure do not know them. What makes me look more trustworthy than the person sitting to the left of you, or across from you? What makes another person more trustworthy than me?
What is it about coffee shops that allows for this brief comraderie?
I'm pretty much just rambling. But I'm in a coffee shop right now so it seems relevant.
P.S. As scriptsoup pointed out this idea has been done by Larry David, which I didn't know. So not too sure if this is a great idea for hitrecord tv show lol. But this occurred to me while sitting in the coffee shop and a woman asked me to watch her things today lol.
In my high school, we had a foreign language requirement. One credit to go towards graduation. Being a relatively small school we had the options of Spanish, German, French, and, surprisingly, Navajo. Navajo is a language native to American Indians/Native Americans of the Southwest region of the United States.
I went through the school catalogue with my mom and I remember she laughed at this. That Navajo was considered a foreign language despite it being a native tongue. Native to this part of the country.
However, I suppose it is a dialect unknown and unfamiliar to the majority of the United States despite its highlight in the 2002 movie Wind Talkers starring Nicholas Cage and Adam Beach. And even though this movie gave the language a brief bit of spotlight, highlighting the language's importance to winning World War II, a feat accomplished by Navajo Code Talkers who used the Navajo language as a code that was unbreakable. It is also important to note that other Native American languages were used as well.
My point is, it seems ironic to call 'Navajo' a foreign language when the language itself is native to the area.
When I think of 'language', this is my first thought each time.
I am one of those people who is obssessed with movies but as an audience member. I know very little of what goes on in the making of movies aside from what might be found in the extras and featurettes that come with a DVD.
But I do wonder how technological advancements will change movie and television productions.
We've come so far from the Star Wars effects of building little dioramas and filming outer space scenes to full blown CGI effects, green screens and all. The quality of cameras have only gotten better and there are still innovations to making them better. We have imax movies that have changed so much of our movie watching experiences as well as 3-d movies.
So I want to know:
There are so many other things that can change the movie experience. From the production of it, all the way to the movie watching experiences.
I want to see a robot who aspires to become a stand-up comedian but no one will take him seriously since he is a robot and not human. So another human, any age, decides to help him out. The robot has the comedic skills, but his comedy are unrelatable to humans since they are all robot associated.
Seems like a fun idea for a short story for the future collab.
A young nighttime shadow being who is in love with the sun. He hangs around early in the morning hiding in the shade for as long as he can. Watching the rays of early sunlight, the arms of his love and just as he is waiting for the sun to emerge to catch of glimpse of his crush, he disappears because he can no longer be around in the light. He does this each morning.
I've been wanting to do a stop motion for this for a while now, but haven't had time. But I think this is something that could be a great idea for as short story for the theme The Dark. He is unable to meet his one love.
Let me know what you all think :)

I love the shadow beings collab. Its my favorite!
hitRECord: evolving the limits of your imagination

I couldn't decide betwen the two.
As soon as I had caught my breath,
It jumped right out of my hands.
Pinwheels!!! I love these things. Hopefully the picture is clear :)
Just a few image re-RECs I think deserve a look. Been a long time since I've done weekly re-RECs!
