The Couturier Kid Hits the Big Time

My library's Miss Catherine, whom I'm now calling the Couturier Kid, has hit the big time.  She served as a costumer in the movie Submerge: Echo 51 (2017), written and directed by Demetrius Witherspoon.  She made the front page of our local newspaper, as you can see here.  There's more to see below, if you click the photo (to bigify).

shooting of the movie Submerge: Echo 51

There's a movie trailer that will give you a sneak peek.  You can also watch Red Carpet Interviews recorded at the premiere (June 26, 2017).


Submerge: Echo 51 TV Spot (2016)

Want to watch the movie?  Thanks to my library, you can checkout a copy, if you have an Evergreen Indiana library card.  The film has gotten high ratings (4.8 out of 5 stars) from reviewers.  Learn more about the movie and the creative folks behind it by visiting the DV Entertainment Pictures website and Facebook page.

That's a pretty fine gig, I'll venture.  It must have been plenty exciting to have worked in a motion picture production.  Maybe she will drop my name if any of her future cinema projects need to hire a cat to play a role (lead, I'm thinking).  Central casting, you know where to reach moi.

If any of Miss Catherine's upcoming movies need a music soundtrack, I know a composer who has a master's certificate in movie and television music soundtrack scoring from Berklee College of Music.  He composes original music for my library's YouTube videos.  He has his own website, and he's on Facebook, Reverbnation, and Soundcloud.  Some of his compositions have been performed publicly in the United States and Europe, and some have been recorded by various European musicians.  If you need music for your film or TV show, he's your dude.

Congratulations (or, as Summer would say, Concatulations) to the Couturier Kid for her success.  I see a great new career blossoming for her, and I'm never wrong.  (Mistakes are for minions.)  Once she's a famous Hollywood designer, I hope she remembers all the "little people" (and their felines) back at the library.  They can play extras, you know.  I see them standing around talking all the time (joke!).

Not Such Bad Cats, I'll Venture

This week a charming new children's picture book arrived at my library.  I think that title's misleading, however.  Those seven cats were never so bad!  At least, not from their point of view.


Seven Bad Cats, by Moe Bonneau
(MPL Book Trailer #435)


The book's available to checkout from our Evergreen Indiana catalog.  It is a wonderful readaloud that human kids (and cats) will enjoy.  The book is written in rhyme, so that's how we did the book trailer.

Remember, cats having fun are never bad.  That's our story, and we're sticking to it!

Crank Up That Juke Box and Dance!

The Decorinator and BizMeister were trying to think of some eye-catching decorations for the entrance to the library's youth services department that would dovetail nicely with the 2018 Summer Reading theme, "Libraries Rock!"  Queen Settler came up with a true winner:  If libraries rock, then why not display a jukebox?  So the Decorinator and BizMeister fashioned one out of cardboard, paper, plastic, and, well, you know, decorator stuff.

That's a Cool Jukebox!


Which Band Made That Record?


Scowl-Face discovered a design flub, however.  He crashed his head into the big black note hanging over into the passageway into youth services.  So, watch out, tall patrons!  Duck!!!  Queen Settler demonstrates.


Duck!


Give Credit Where Credit Is Due


For all you youngsters out there who don't know what a jukebox is, there's a video for that.

Obviously, since our jukebox is only a decoration, you can't actually play records on it, but you can crawl beneath it through the bottom passageway into (and out of) youth services.  But that's only for youngsters.  Adults don't get to have any fun.

Congrats to the Decorinator, BizMeister, and Queen Settler for this fantastic display!

P.S.  The intro to the TV show Happy Days (1974-1984) featured a jukebox.  Here's the Season One intro (1974).  Kids--ask your grandparents who Ron Howard, Henry Winkler, et al., are/were.

Lady RaDA Returns!

Boss Lady sent out an email to staff yesterday with great news!  Lady RaDA is returning to the library as the new Deputy Director.  I guess we'd better get her a badge.


That's kind of plain, minions.  Got anything more interesting?


That's pretty cool.  Got the mask and everything.  But maybe we should go with the complete costume.


Great for Halloween!

How about this?



Fits in with the whole Lone Ranger deputy thing.

What will Lady RaDA's new duties as Deputy Director be?  We assume she'll do everything she used to do, plus a bunch more administrative stuff.  That's what happens when you get a promotion.  Lucky for moi that feline roving reporter doesn't have any upward mobility.

Welcome back, Lady RaDA!  Now get to work.

P.S.  Here's "I Shot the Sheriff," by Bob Marley and the Wailers, from the album Burnin' (1973).  But he did not shoot the deputy.  Close call, there, Lady RaDA.  “'I Shot The Sheriff’ is like I shot wickedness,” Bob Marley said in a 1975 interview. “That’s not really a sheriff, it’s the elements of wickedness. The elements of that song is people been judging you and you can’t stand it no more and you explode, you just explode.”



P.P.S.  Here's "Badge," by Cream, from the group's final album, Goodbye (1969).  The song was co-written by Eric Clapton and George Harrison.
