My name is Lizzy Tex Borden. I like to take photographs. Some may be interesting, some may be boring and some may be downright terrible. All of them will enlarge to the size I intended when right clicked on and opened in a new window. And you
are also likely to see my banner above change from time to time as I like to have fun with them. My banners could seem totally
unrelated to my blog, so don't let it throw you. It's all about fun and good times. Savvy?

About two years ago I had posted a photo of some NASA Space
Mission patches that had come my way one way or another. This
Space Shuttle patch was my favorite as I loved the shuttle.
Around the same time I received the patches a family member gave
this ERTL brand die-cast shuttle to me. This is the Colombia. It launched
for the first time on mission STS-1 on April 12, 1981. Unfortunately, on
February 1, 2003, the Space Shuttle Columbia disintegrated over
Tyler Texas during reentry, killing all seven crew members:

Here is ERTL's Colombia with it's payload bay doors open.
There was a lot of anticipation for this movie. The sequels
for "The Blair Witch Project" so far had not been very good.
But here was another chance at BW glory.
Then it hit theaters and folks were not impressed. I remember
going to see a different movie and seeing a trailer for a movie
called "The Woods". As it turns out, "The Woods" was actually a
preview of "Blair Witch". The movie folks were trying to keep
the fact that it was a BWP sequel from us and having a little
fun to boot, if I remember right.
And here is the anticlimactic ending to today's post. I had
seen this movie around when it came out on DVD but after
what I had heard about it, I was not going to put out a lot
of money for it. And now here we are. Price came down.
I watched Blair Witch, Well.... It did give me the creeps, and it
did keep me interested, and it was fun seeing some of the tie-ins
from the Blair Witch Project, but I cannot believe how they used
jump scares. Cheesy, stupid jump scares. "Throwing a cat on set"
jump scares. They did not need to do that. Am I glad I saw
it? Yes, I kind of liked it. I will rate it 5.5 out of 10
Oh yeah. Folks with claustrophobia will LOVE one the scenes.
Oh and Lisa carried what looked to be a Spyderco knife.
That was a plus.
