Rough Cut of ROOM 13 Finished

What Paul Will Do For Money to Finish This Movie!

“We waiting for the rough cut and it seems it will be ready this week. From there it’s a look at what coverage and establishing shots we will need. Hopefully pickups will be limited. We are all looking forward to seeing what is needed in the next stage.. It is opportune that we have 40,000 vets coming back from Iraq and hopefully this film will help with the ongoing story of Vets in the US.”  – Paul Eenhoorn (I’m guessing.)

“Room 13 rough cut just completed.” – Aria Elf

How to Get Rid of Cockroaches

Editor’s Note:  Rita is being paid by the landlord $25.00/tenant to talk to the people in her apartment building about the cockroach problem.  What I’m saying is, you’re dealing with a professional here.

“First, I suggest getting a possum as a pet. Possums hunt cockroaches.  I tried to find some baby possums on craigslist, but no one has any. I’m sure they would be great – people have rats and ferrets as pets, so why not a possum. I would try recruiting some homeless bum to try to catch a pregnant possum.

No other animal likes to eat cockroaches. In fact, my cat made friends with them. When i caught some in a jar trap, Iris meowed, asking me to let them out, and when I wouldn’t, she tipped over the jar and let them out herself.

To make a cockroach trap:  get an empty bottle or a jar, put some peanut butter on the bottom, smear some butter on the inside neck of the bottle so the bugs can’t climb out, and put the trap wherever you see cockroaches. It works great, and it is completely free.

Tribal Rituals?

Sometimes I feel bad killing them – they act so intelligently. A couple of times a large old cockroach came to meet me and just sat there on the wall, right in front of my face, staring at me and wiggling his whiskers; I believe he was sent as an ambassador to try to make some sort of a deal, but, you know the saying, “don’t shoot the messenger”…
Interestingly, each time it was a large old male cockroach trying to approach me. That could mean that is possible that they have like an old wise cockroach like a shaman or something that attempts to communicate to humans. Or it could be some ritual, where the biggest and the bravest of males goes to take on a human. It could also be rule: like a cockroach tribe leader is asked to go talk to a human after a certain time of being a leader – that could be a way for them to keep the tribe from becoming a dictatorship and to rotate the leaders. There is, of course, another possibility – that those male cockroaches were attracted to me and were asking me out…”  – Rita

ROOM 13 – Update

Richard Carmen, Jason William Pead, Aria Elf and Marco Scaringi of ROOM 13

“This is the time that nothing happens…. but there are things happening… the Editor Aria is sitting in a dark room crouched over a flickering screen trying to find one delicate take for a scene where we crossed the line more often than a mexican drug cartel, or where the reverses had a problem. That stuff happens at the end of long days. We feed Aria three times a day and let her walk the compound for 5 minutes every 4 hours. She says very little but we know she is alive because we sometimes here a distant “shit” spoken by her trembling, bite marked tongue.”   – My Guess Is That This Was Written By Paul Eenhoorn

Editor:  You found it first, here!

 

Create reality – make it rain money

 

Raining frogs, worms, crocodiles, lizards, turtles, fish, blood, meat, corn, and money has happened many times throughout history all over the world. (Once it even rained a few cows, one of which damaged a Japanese fishing boat.) So now that the fall is here, let us cause money to rain by making our desire clear to the Universe – by using umbrellas with pictures of money on them.

Order your hand-painted custom umbrella from me directly. Of course, if you’d rather it rained cats and dogs, fish, or frogs, or handsome men, I’d be happy to paint them on your umbrella as well! But I draw a line at cows.  Go to: http://ritaandreeva.blogspot.com/2011/09/create-reality-make-it-rain-money.html

Rita says:  “No one wrote to me to order one
😦
I’m making one for myself though

The Money Rain umbrella really works!

Rita Files This Personal Testimonial:

“A couple of days ago it started drizzling, so I used my money rain umbrella. When I came home that evening I got a letter from the Unemployment Department saying they found some mistake they made in my benefits calculation years ago, so I was getting a deposit of $250 into my bank account right away! And the next day I got an email from my apartment mgr offering me $25 per apartment to have a talk with each tenant about the cockroach control. So order your Money Rain umbrella today!”
