Sweetie was brought to our private bird rescue on May 4th 2014 suffering from a broken leg which had occurred on April 23 2014 but had not been treated. After much investigation it was discovered that she had visited a Vet. in Brampton, Ont. Upon contact with this clinic it was agreed upon to take Sweetie there for surgery on her leg. Unfortunately due to the former owners reluctance to have it treated or surrender her for almost 2 weeks it had become very infected. Sweetie under went surgery on May 13th to amputate her then hopelessly damaged leg. She has rebounded wonderfully and is going to live a happy, healthy life here with our Sly Flock!.

  Flitzer on an icy Wednesday in Buffalo
LA Fitness today: Dad had an adventure keeping his commitment of going to the gym:
The real work-out was trying not to fall down my driveway or in the street. Everything was sheer ice.
Crawled/Slid/Skidded down the driveway -and the street was worse.

Ice-covered by water - no way to get a foothold anywhere. HE IS BAD ON ICE

I, King Flitzer, have decreed today "Apple Day". Dad cut up apples for me in my preferred shape and size. Yay me! Have a Happy Day!

Monday Dad got me in the Travel Cage and took me to get my claws done with Aunt Maria.
I decided, for a change, not to fight it, and it passed quickly. Dad even bought some extra seeds for me while he was there. I must say, it was nice getting out as I've been stuck at home for the past couple months in record-cold temperatures.

The rest of the day went well, enjoyed some good Daddy-n-Bird Time. ~Wings Up~

Sadly, another cold, snowy slippery Monday morning commute. Daddy says the whole town is miserable as Monday commutes are the most difficult on the spirit as well.

  Hi Sweetie
Thanks so much for offering to step up (get it!!). You and your mom are such a big help to me and mine.

Well, we finally got our rain last night, but it was only .47" total. The sky is still very dark, but Dad says it isn't going to rain any more. He is usually pretty accurate, better than the weather geeks anyway. Don't know when I will be able to get outside for a sunbath, because there's nothing above mid 60s in the forecast.

When my mom got home from the gym today, she walked into a house that smelled wonderful. Dad had a pork roast on a bed of potatoes in the oven, and Mom started salivating as soon as she walked in the door. She shared a plate with me at 2PM when it was done, and we both loved it. Yumm!

Congrats to Flitzer on winning his crown. He looks mighty handsome in it, and now we start voting for pretty little BooBoo. Her mom will do her best to campaign for her, but let's remember her back is not completely healed up yet. So please get over to page #162724 every single day to vote whether she is able to blog you or not.

  Hi Sweetie
Just sent an email to your mom asking if there is any chance you could be ready to run in March for BOTM. Poor BooBoo's mom is still not recuperated, and it would be very hard on her to do the typing necessary for the campaign. I totally understand if you cannot be ready since this is basically no notice at all.

  Flitzer Final February Post
THE LOST ART OF THE INTERMISSION:
.
For many years, longer films were planned with Intermisisons. the story would take a dramatic pause, the music would swell, and the audience got to take a break to use the bathrooms, visit the Refreshment Stand etc.
--
I always loved the Intermission music. Often in the older theaters, curtains would dramatically close on the Intermission, and slowly open when Part 2 began.
--
Nowadays we're forced to sit for 2 1/2, 3 hrs or more without a break.
[The Lord of the Rings films are good examples - they are long, involved, and you're lost if you had to take a break away from the screen].

Even revivals of older films will skip right over the Intermission - forcing you to shift in your seat - and hold it in for another extended period of time - ~ugh~
--
Unfortunately, after paying the high ticket-prices we need to *er* …"step away" from the film for a few minutes, missing possibly something interesting.
--
Theater owners are always conscious of how many showings they can fit in per day, but I say BRING BACK THE INTERMISSION. People *will* spend more for refreshments, and not have to miss any of the movie.

  Flitzer Friday on Film
Before the month winds down, we want to Thank our loyal friends for all their support, kind words and encouragement throughout this past month.
Love from Mark and Flitzer

= = = =
Dad's Special Movie Memory:
As kids we would get to a movie theater once in a while. Mostly for a Kids Matinee.
We almost never visited the Refreshment Stand. There was one special time which was an exception.
Dad was treated to a special movie with his Mom. They went without the rest of the family -and It was an evening showing, She even bought him popcorn. Can't recall if it was a Birthday or whatever - just that it was a special night.

The film was "MARY POPPINS", which, ever since has been a special movie for Dad.

We spoke earlier this month about how a few notes of music can make a movie-memory come sweeping back. Any music from ‘Mary Poppins’ makes Dad think of that special Movie Night with his Mom.

  Flitzer on Winners and Classics
Kiddo raised an interesting topic: Films that did Not win The Academy Award for 'Best Picture', but they are now classics, many times surpassing the Oscar-winning film.
--
in the Awards Game there has to be a winner, and losers. There will be endless discussion as to outcomes, but only time makes a film a true Classic.
A couple of examples:
--
The Year: 1941. The Oscar-Winning film, "How Green was My Valley" [a personal favorite and a wonderful film], but the nominee that did not get the award was "Citizen Kane" which many feel is one of the Greatest Films Ever Made.
--
The Year: 1952. The Oscar-Winning Film, "The GreatestShow on Earth"
...same year as "High noon" and "The Quiet Man"
--
The Year: 2005. The Oscar-Winning Film, "Crash"
...same year as "Brokeback Mountain", a film which many consider a Classic.
= = =
Will this year's winner, "Birdman", remain considered the Best of the year?
or will “American Sniper”, "Boyhood" or even "The Grand Budapest Hotel" be remembered...only time will tell.

  Flitzer Wednesday Thoughts . . .
Still in "Recovery-Mode" from Hollywood's Big Night.

--
Some of you BirdChannel friends have expressed that they don't watch The Oscars.
Dad doesn't really like the Hollywood Glamor-thing and some of the industry politics,
but we do love movies.
--
Often we are disappointed with what films and actors win the awards. That is all a part of the game. We often look back on past years with a knowing smirk, realizing that the movies we liked best that year are the ones that are still being watched and appreciated.
--
All that being said, we do like tuning in that one night a year, when Hollywood goes all-out and celebrates the talent, work and yes, the tackiness of The Hollywood Movie Machine.

  Flitzer Parties with the Stars
Inside Oscar’s Glamorous After-Parties
--
The night doesn’t end when the final Oscar is handed out. In fact, the party is just getting started as stars and execs exit the Dolby Theater, heading to a flurry of post-awards celebrations, including the Governors Ball, the Vanity Fair Party, Elton John’s AIDS Foundation party and more.

--
The Governors Ball
By the time celebs arrived at the Governors Ball, they were ravenous. As usual, the event was catered by Wolfgang Puck -- a fact he made sure everyone was aware of.
Before the Oscars began, he walked the entire red carpet in his chef's whites with a tray displaying some of the treats partygoers would be offered at the after-party. Among them: caviar-topped baked potatoes, chicken pot pie and mac and cheese with aged cheddar. There was also a dessert bar, though most guests skipped the cookies and cupcakes in favor of Puck's trademark mini gold-covered chocolate Oscars. The candy men were kept just feet from a station where winners headed with their real gold statues and queued up to wait for engraving.

Vanity Fair Oscar Party
Location: Wallis Annenberg Center, Santa Monica Blvd, Beverly Hills, CA
Details: Graydon Carter hosts the Vanity Fair Oscar party at a custom-designed space which connects the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts with City Hall. Above photo, Lady Gaga attends while right, Oscar-winning best supporting actor Jared Leto photobombs Anne Hathaway.
--
InStyle Oscar Party
Location: Fig & Olive, 8940 Melrose Place, West Hollywood, CA

Guy Oseary and Madonna’s Late Night Party
Details: Undisclosed. It’s happening, but a source close to the event says Madonna will be unable to attend since she’ll be in rehearsals for The Brit Awards on Feb. 25.
--
Elton John Oscars Party
The Elton John AIDS Foundation hosted its 2015 Academy Awards viewing party in West Hollywood on Sunday. The annual event, now in its 23rd year, serves as a star-studded fundraiser for the organization, which John founded in 1992 to support HIV/AIDS care, prevention, and awareness.

John and his husband David Furnish serve as co-hosts. Gordon Ramsay is once again providing a five-course gourmet dinner, and there will be a special musical performance. John, who joined Instagram in December to document his wedding to Furnish, is now using his account to share intimate pictures from the exclusive celebration. Before the Oscars ceremony began, the music legend revealed $4.85 million had already been raised, and later shared an adorable picture of his sons watching “Uncle Neil” Patrick Harris host the show.

Miley Cyrus, Heidi Klum, Nina Dobrev, the Osbournes, Aaron Paul, Alec Baldwin, Rob Lowe are among the celebrities in attendance. Plenty more are expected to join the festivities once the Academy Awards show ends.

  Flitzer and Dad Sleepy after Oscar Parties
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
"The costumes, the scenery, the makeup, the props
The audience that lifts you when you're down
The headaches, the heartaches, the backaches, the flops
The sheriff who escorts you out of town

The opening when your heart beats like a drum
The closing when the customers won't come

There's no business like show business
Like no business I know..."
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Dad says it will take a couple of Blogs to cover his disorganized reactions to the 87th Acadmy Awards. [Dad is old and scatter-brained anyway, but I love him].

First Things First: The Opening Number was Awesome. The best in years.
The other highlight of the show was Lady Gaga's tribute to the 50th anniversary of "The Sound of Music" -like her or not, her performance was phenomenal.
* * * * *
Dad's pick for Best Dressed: Rosamund Pike‘s red hot custom Givenchy gown

Although Dad thinks there were better films last year, anything called "Birdman" gets my vote too. It took hom 4 Oscars, including Best Picture and Best Director.
-
Dad's favorite film this year was "Whiplash" which won three awards, including JK Simmons winning for Best Supporting Actor - Dad says he had the best performance of the year and his gold statue was the most deserved.
--
It's interesting that each of the eight nominees for 'Best Picture' went home with at least one Oscar

Oscar Sunday

Singing: "It’s a wonderful night for Oscar…Oscar, Oscar!" --Billy Crystal

Billy Crystal is my favorite Oscar Host. He has hosted NINE Times between 1990 and 2012.
As far as I'm concerned he could keep on hosting.
--
The origin of the name Oscar is disputed. One biography of Bette Davis claims that she named the Oscar after her first husband, band leader Harmon Oscar Nelson; Walt Disney is also quoted as thanking the Academy for his Oscar as early as 1932.
Another claimed origin is that the Academy's Executive Secretary, Margaret Herrick, first saw the award in 1931 and made reference to the statuette's reminding her of her "Uncle Oscar" (a nickname for her cousin Oscar Pierce). Columnist Sidney Skolsky was present during Herrick's naming and seized the name in his byline, "Employees have affectionately dubbed their famous statuette 'Oscar'". The trophy was officially dubbed the "Oscar" in 1939 by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

  Flitzer's Saturday Squawks
Instead of saying who I think will win Oscars, or who should win, I will simply concentrate on what I consider the Best Films for the year.
********************************************
Top Films of 2014: My Top Films this year:
********************************************
#1: “Whiplash”: (Dir: Damien Chazelle).
"Whiplash" is such an amazing film in every way. The Directing, the Writing, the Editing, the Cinematography. The performances are outstanding.

A film about Talent, Ambition, Obsession. Pushing oneself beyond known abilities. - -Soaring above the rest.
"Whiplash" won both The Audience Award and The Grand Jury Prize at Sundance - an amazing feat.

Filmed more like a thriller than a film about music, it becomes a battle of wills between our protagonist [Miles Teller] and his mentor-[a truly amazing J.J. Simmons]. It is an exhilarating work from the start to it's adrenaline-rushing finish.
.......
#2: “Boyhood”: (Dir: Richard Linklater).
A celebration of Life and being human. A simple story of growing up becomes profound and moving. Filmed over 12 years, the story and characters grow as the real-life filmmakers do, and the end-result is wonderful.

Richard Linklater is a talented, insightful director. I think the time has come to acknowledge his achievements.
.......
3. “Calvary”: (Dir: John Michael McDonagh)
Beautiful, sad and scathing portrait of a simple priest struggling with his own humanity and trying to do good in a small sinful town.
A truly great performance by Brendan Gleeson and a portrait of the True Power of Forgiveness. It is a film of Faith, of Doubt and Transcendence.
.......
4. “Birdman” (Dir: Alejandro González Iñárritu)
Michael Keaton shines in this fascinating exploration of Creativity, Talent and the cost of Fame. The tale winds seamlessly and breathlessly to the last shot.
.......

  Hello Sweetie~
I hope you are having a wonderful day! I finally have some time to get a note out! Dad has been home for a few days and is now getting ready to head out again. He was suppose to go tomorrow but there might be snow in the mountains tomorrow so he is getting a head start to avoid the snow!
Just the usual stuff going on around here. Lots of cleaning up and boring stuff like that. I have kept myself busy with toys and snacks and lots of play time with mom.
I hope your night is just perfect! Leaving a vote and a big hug! Hope you are staying warm! Spring is only 27 days away!
Love you ~ Sugar ♥

  Flitzer Talks Oscar Parties
A Sneak Peek Inside the Glamorous Oscars Governors Ball
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Party Party Party
--
When all 1,500 guests make their way into the 2015 Oscars Governors Ball — the Academy Awards’ annual after-party — they’ll be entering an old-school Hollywood speakeasy.
--
The room will be adorned in plush velvets and tapestries, and will feature hundreds of black-and-white photographs from the Academy’s collections.

“The colors are very rich jewel tones – burgundies, purples, deep greens and golds,” says celebrity florist Mark Held. “We’re trying to create a different look for each table. Some tables have vintage-looking lamps, some tables are tone-on-tone purple, and for some tables, we’ve created man-made flowers out of succulents. It’s very eclectic.”
--
Aside from the stunning décor, Hollywood’s A-listers will have plenty to munch on, as chef Wolfgang Puck has created 32(!) unique dishes to serve over the course of the meal.
--
“When we do a menu for 1,500 people, we have to have enough dishes so that there’s something for everybody,” explains Puck. “Some people are vegan and vegetarian, some people don’t eat fish or don’t eat meat. Because of that, we made 32 different dishes, from a little parsnip chip with eggplant puree, which are a little Middle Eastern, to lobster rolls with bacon, which is traditional American.”
--
Other dishes include baked potatoes topped with caviar, black truffle chicken pot pies, Wagyu shortrib with squash puree, chilled sweet pea soup, and Puck’s signature Oscar-shaped smoked salmon matzo. (350 lbs. of smoked salmon will be served in total!)
--
Of course, no party is complete without some festive drinks. Piper-Heidsieck will be serving up 1,500 bottles of champagne — including about 750 of their exclusive Rare bottles — while Sterling Vineyards will be providing 2,400 bottles of wine.
