The Giant Blogging Terms Glossary

Thanks to Oklahoma Christian University for helping sponsor the Blogger Round-Up.

515-bn-gift-card.jpgRaffle time...I won a $20.00 gift certificate to Barnes & Nobel!

Kevin Latham of The Program Witch Pages, Blog Oklahoma Webring, BlogOklahoma.us, ITLnet Blog and Blog Elk City, and

Lots of great tips on programs, images, design, rss syndication and readers, spammers, trolls and everything else.

510-flickr_logo_gamma.gifKevin Lathan has set up an Okie Blogger Round-Up group Flickr page for everyone to upload their photos. I'm taking an occasional photo and will upload them to the group page as well as to my Flickr page.

[4:00 pm] The liberals and progressives have outed themselves! Oklahoma's lefty bloggers are alive and kickin'.

[4:40 pm] Dinner and sightseeing/shopping break. I had dinner with Charles Hill, Michael Bates, Dan, Angi and Elijah Lovejoy at the Bricktown Brewery. A burger and a few Copperhead Amber Ales really hit the spot. Thanks to Charles for picking up the tab for the out-of-towners, Michael and myself. I skipped out right after finishing dinner and stopped by Oklahoma's only Apple Computer store in Penn Square Mall.

[7:45 pm] 2006 Okie Blog Award winners are announced:

Best Overall Blog: dustbury
Best Political Blog: Okie Funk
Best Family Blog: Rocks in my Dryer

Best Culture Blog: Blog Oklahoma.us
Best Commentary: Two-Headed Blog
Best Inspirational Blog: Counseling Notes
Best Commercial Blog: Oklahoma Wine News

[8:00 pm] Time to get funky...the geeks have hit the dance floor. And by "geeks" I mean people who all can dance better than me.

516-mozartballs-dvd.jpg[9:30 pm] Raffle time again...I won a DVD of Mozartballs!

[10:30 pm] Screening of the United States premier of Mozartballs starring two attendees, Steph Waller and Lynette Erwin. The film, already shown at the Cannes Film Festival, all over Europe and much of the rest of the world, was commissioned by a German film company for this year's commemoration of Mozart's 250th birthday and will be publicly released in the U.S. this December.

[11:30 pm] Well...quite a film, especially with two of its stars sitting next to me while it played. Without giving too much away, it is in the style of a documentary about different individuals around the world whose lives are unusually linked to/with Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. It, therefore, is not specifically about Mozart himself...although Steph might disagree on this point. Steph and Lynette's roles definitely fall in the truth is stranger than fiction category. 517-cheap-gas.jpgThe only other thing I'll say is that they both attest to the fact that there was no acting in the film and that everything was unscripted and completely real. All and all, I enjoyed the film and I'd say its creators succeeded...if there goal was to make a movie about Mozart, but not about Mozart, and in a way that's not been done before.

[11:45 pm] Heading home. And, guess where I filled up before hitting the turnpike?
