the THIRD GingerBinge Summer Film is REVEALED....

...over on FB... CHECK out the background music...

...at the request of various Gingerologists world-wide... this will vary considerably over time, but not a bad 'first tune'... WOULD use GingerTunes, but I feel it may... SKEW the selection process... if I'm playing 'The Continental', for example, and Divorcee pops up, wouldn't that be...weird? So, I'll just play tunes which Ginger most likely liked... and maybe a few that HU likes... you may or may not be able to tell the difference... ;-)

check back SOON for the link to the GingerFilm blog...

UPDATE: The THIRD GingerBinge film is... You Said a Mouthful... HEREs the link to the Gingerfilm blog for YSAM...

...Night TWO of the the GingerBinge Summer!!!

...the Gingerfilm is revealed... over on FB... I'll update the pick after I watch it, for those who don't 'do' FB... not sure why anyone at this point would not partake in endless pics, vids, and discussion regarding Ginger, but... hey...

check back for the link to the GingerFilm blog...

UPDATE: The SECOND GingerBinge film is... Lady in the Dark... HERE'S the link to the Gingerfilm blog for LITD...

,,,the FIRST GingerBinge film has been revealed...

...go check on FaceBook (my page or whatever) to watch the drawing of the FIRST film to be viewed by Hu in the Summer of Ginger!!!

UPDATE... The film, in case you don't know, is... Tom Dick and Harry... Just finished watching it... go to THIS blog for a bit of post-viewing thoughts from Hu...

I will head over to the appropriate GingerFilm blog and post some random musings there later tonight... nothing too earth-shattering...  and this will not be a 'ranking' deal as was the case with the GingerFilm reviews... which has stalled in the middle of Top Hat, since it's pretty impossible to compare films from the 'peak' of her career... this will just be a 'random thoughts' exercise and an opportunity to 'tidy up' these GingerFilm blogs I set up many months ago...

Anyway... go check out the 'reveal' vid on FB... should be a pretty neat starting film...

Until tomorrow!

KIG!!!

...Is It Tomorrow ALREADY?


...Well, a few things have gotten in the way of starting the 'GingerBinge' proper for tonight... and of course, Miss Glory is REAL agitated about that... but ultimately, the fam and I were hashing out a vacation scheme for next week... looks like a 'go', so... at least we accomplished THAT...

Reiterating what the deal is - I'll post here with a video of myself drawing a card from the box... to reveal the GingerFilm for the evening... then I'll watch it... and most likely do a 'Post-viewing' entry on the GingerFilm blog (I'll link it to the 'drawing' post)... ...but NOT on G-ology... SO... we'll see how it goes... In the meantime, here's a 'test video' I shot while driving in Miami Beach...

...um... dang y'all... it takes quite a while for a vid to load up (I think blogger is on the verge of imploding anyway, y'all...) ...on second thought, I'll just load the 'reveal' video directly to FaceBook. So stay tuned over there (I just posted the 'Miami Test' on FB, and all appears well)...anyway, the exercise will begin in earnest TOMORROW night... hopefully...

Until then...

KIG!!!

...Fellow Gingerologists... I Hereby Declare...

...THE SUMMER OF GINGER!!!
...now WHAT, you may be thinking, does The Summer of Ginger entail?

...well...

...here's the deal. As of late, I have been QUITE dissatisfied with the 'output' of this blog... I figure y'all are as well... SO...

Summer begins in full tomorrow (or today, depending upon where on the orb you reside)... the season has more or less 90 days in it... Ginger made 70+ feature films... see where this is headed? Hu REALLY needs to roll thru the GingerCatalog in toto, just... BECAUSE...

Roughly... a GingerFilm a day for viewing, which is always a great thing... ...but, additionally, whichever GingerFilm is chosen for a given day, its accompanying blog will get some love as well in the form of added pics and other stuff to 'update', until hopefully all GingerBlogs are in fair shape...

OK, well... what's in it for you, or me, you are probably saying... um... not sure, except, I'll be posting some stuff pretty much each day... most likely random musings from the film viewed the night before...

...SO... ...beginning tomorrow... I'll be choosing the first GingerFilm from the 'deck' of cards I created specifically for this event from old unused Rolodex cards (yeah, I spare NO expense, y'all... ...and actually, I was just surprised that Spell Check actually caught "Rolodex" at all...)  ...so we'll see what shakes out...

Stay Tuned, y'all...

KIG!

Gingery Moment of the Day...

...was out shopping with the fam when I ran across a car with THIS tag:
...pretty cool, eh?

Well... obviously, this is a pretty special year for we Gingerologists, but... in actuality, this is representative of an African-American fraternity, which, strangely enough, two of which were established in 1911 - Kappa Alpha Psi, and Omega Psi Phi. Of the two, I think it's Kappa, as I've heard folks mention it here and there... but then again, I know VERY little about fraternities of ANY ethnicity... 

Anyway, just a cool GingerMoment...

Hope all is well for y'all out there...

KIG!
