Día de los Muertos Film Festival 2015

For those that have expressed interest in attending our 3rd Annual horror movie night!
However, the forecasters were right and even more so…

Dia de los Muertos Film Festival 2015

Well there’s floodin’ down in Texas, and we want all to be safe in their homes and on the roads and pray for others affected by the flood waters.

Día de los Muertos is a Mexican holiday to celebrate the circle of life. It is our intentions to observe what is known to us as The Day of the Dead, as well as our own Halloween, and celebrate these in film.

This started out as watching horror movies alone at home on Halloween Night, after putting candy fueled children to bed. Too scared to continue to watch these movies alone, it was my intention to have a gathering to watch these with family and friends.

The outdoor projection screening is the most special to enjoy these sort of films. If it is dry enough on Sunday, we may be able to hold this event on the actual Día de los Muertos day. And could start the screenings an hour earlier, due to Day Light Savings.

Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) 2015 begins on Sunday, November 1

Will let those know that have RSVPed if we still plan to hold the event on Sunday when it gets closer. If not, then please come out and enjoy this event with us next year!

Día de los Muertos Film Festival Part III, on Sunday Evening, the actual Dia de los Muertos Day of the Dead, day!

Please RSVP, if you are able to attend.

  • Kids Events most likely canceled due to a new soggy sod lawn.
  • Costume Contest
  • Popcorn machine
  • Keg of Shiner Wicked Ram IPA – (Released less than 2 weeks ago)

Film Screening Schedule

Times moved earlier one hour due to DST.

(Films and Times Subject to Change)

Later Screenings all to be voted upon by viewers. Bring your favorite horror film or one will be drawn from the Necronomicon (otherwise known as Heavy Metal Movies: Guitar Barbarians, Mutant Bimbos & Cult Zombies Amok in the 666 Most Ear- and Eye-Ripping Big-Scream Films Ever).

Costumes are both welcome and encouraged!!

Dress the part, Play the part. Halloween was only yesterday!

Please contact me directly if you might like to come over late at night tonight or Sunday and watch as an indoor screening

New Nikon D610 DSLR Camera

Today, our new Nikon D610 DSLR Camera (Body Only) arrived that we had purchased online from B&H Photo. We are excited to use this new camera, as it is our first stop into the Nikon realm, leaving Canon behind. It was a tough decision, but after many reviews, personal testimonials, and comparing Canon and Nikon, we choose to go with the new leader in photography. Nikon in the past several years has taken on Canon in market share. Nikon offers more features and sharper images for less cost. Canon only updates their products after Nikon has already released new features, then Canon customers demand it. In this case, when we wanted to experience the advantages of a full frame sensor, we decided to go with Nikon instead of Canon. This decision was also costly, as it meant that we had to sell off all of the equipment that we had purchased over the years at deep discount after market prices. However, we can’t be more happy with this purchase and plan on leaning how to fully operate this new camera.

This camera was to replace my previous Canon EOS 7D SLR Digital Camera. My wife Jenny had purchased this camera online from B&H Photo & Video. It had been a good camera, but Jenny and I were ready for a full frame sensor.

Jenny and I made the decision to switch from Canon brand camera products to Nikon brand camera products. It was a difficult decision. Daddy has had brand loyalty to Canon since he learned photography in a two year Photography class at David Crockett High School, working then on a Canon Rebel that shot on film. Since then and many pocket sized cameras, up to our first camera into the DSLR market, the Canon EOS 400D. When SXSW indoor low light shooting conditions required a much higher ISO, we purchased the Canon EOS 7D.

Jenny has taken a larger interest in photography. She has learned all that she can and become the primary photographer for our family, and friends as well. She too is working on her own business, Pretty Paper Photography.

We had sold our Canon 7D camera and most of our lenses, and other Canon equipment over the past few weeks on Craigslist. We have only purchased one lens, the Nikon AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G Autofocus Lens 2180.

So now we can only expect even more high better quality photos in full frame resolution of the Comer children, family, relatives, and new customers at Such Good Photography and Pretty Paper Photography.

SXSW March 12, 2011 – Chris Cornell Powered Down by Nokia – Solo Acoustic Performance at The Belmont in Austin, TX. (http://sxsw.com/node/6955)
 
This photo was taken during the first days of SXSW my hometown of Austin, Texas. I was sitting in a movie theater about to watch the premier of a new film when a friend called and told me that Chris Cornell was playing an acoustic show down the street at The Belmont. Of course, I quickly left and headed straight for the show. We got in line and quickly made it up front to see Chris Cornell play live in all his glory. I snapped a few photos, here is one of the better ones.
 
Thank you for your consideration,
Matthew Comer

Hello Fabrice and everybody at TalentHouse,
 
I am so excited about winning this contest!! So so excited and really couldn’t believe it when reading this email and online announcement.
 
As excited, overwhelmed, appreciative, and honored I am for wining this contest to the Chris Cornell show Atlantic City, New Jersey on Saturday, November 26th; unfortunately I will be unable to represent TalentHouse and Such Good Photography at this event.
 
Shortly after my submission, I was informed by my employer of over 8 years that due to cost cutting measures I would be required to take off 5 mandatory unpaid days off between now and Dec 3. This combined with 2 unpaid holiday days off for Thanksgiving would put my family into a bind by additionally taking care of my own travel and accommodations from Austin to New Jersey.
 
Hopefully, the runner up will be as excited as me to have been bestowed this honor and would be more easily able attend the show and document this show with beautiful photography of the talented Chris Cornell. I hope that this can happen so that somebody else may enjoy this incredible opportunity.
 
Sincerely,
Matthew Comer

You’ve got me captured
I’m under your spell
I guess I’ll never learn

I have your picture
Yes I know it well
Another page is turned

Are you for real?
It’s so hard to tell
From just a magazine

Yeah, you just smile and the picture sells
Look what that does to me

I’ll wait
‘Til your love comes down
I’m coming straight for your heart
No way
You can stop me now
As fine as you are

I wrote a letter
And told her these words
That meant a lot to me

I never sent it
She wouldn’t have heard
Her eyes don’t follow me

And while she watches
I can never be free

Such good photography

I’ll wait
‘Til your love comes down
I’m coming straight for your heart
No way
You can stop me now
As fine as you are

(Guitar Solo)

You can’t imagine
What your image means
The pages come alive

Your magic free
To everyone who reads
Heartbreakin’ motor drive

Are you for real?
It’s so hard to tell
From just a magazine
Yeah, you just smile and the picture sells
Look what that does to me

I’ll wait
‘Til your love comes down
I’m coming straight for your heart
No way
You can stop me now
As fine as you are

I’ll wait
‘Til your love comes down
I’m coming straight for your heart
No way
You can stop me now
As fine as you are
I’ll wait
