My sister and I had been from home to home and my mom wanted a sun conure and took both of us. Unfortunately my sister died a few years ago. We used to groom each other, had our babies together and fed each others' babies. Mom thought I'd be heartbroken but I was really happy! Now I have more time to focus on my owner.

I hope you all got to have a beakful.

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.

Just so you know, Hulk is also in the jockey lottery.
I thought it was time for our horses to have a nice place to live. They can be visited and ridden there.

Thank you for BOTD for our grand opening of Derby Farms. The Milonga Derby is always the second Saturday in May on #165848.
Today mom came home from the store and opened my condo door. I shut it cause she didn't have the correct password! hehehehe! Oh yes, it was a balmy 20 degrees. Today I wore a cute sundress with flip flops and enjoyed an umbrella drink!

  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.

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.

  Hey Squeaky!
It's RaneBeau, here with a quick note, quick only because Kirby is having an absolute fit that I'm getting to write to you when he says HE should be the one with the privilege. Picture me holding him at bay with my wing, the longest feather against his forehead, holding him back even though his wings are flappin' and his feet are peddlin' like crazy as he tries t'get to me.... Hee Hee. Okay, while I've still got him a safe distance from the keyboard, I just wanna say thanks for the compliment on my 'sweater' in my profile picture. It's honestly just a long scarf wrapped around me, but for some reason the way it laid, it looked just like a sweater made for a macaw! If my mom knew how to knit more than just a bunch of straight lines I might actually have a macaw sweater. That's not likely t'happen anytime soon tho, I can tell ya, and that's okay 'cause no sweater would keep me warm enough outside on a day like today. It's bluster and cold here! Major BRRRR! But if it's chilly there where you're at, you're more than welcome t'borrow my scarf. It'd wrap around you lots and definitely keep you toasty.

Thanks for stoppin' by my page. You're a sweetie.

  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.

  Hi Squeaky
I didn't even get a taste of the peach cobbler. My mom isn't happy with the way it turned it out so my mom says next time she's going to try a different recipe.
e day after we got the new dryer mom went to go unload the dishwasher and noticed there was still water sitting in the bottom of it.She thought maybe it was a fluke thing so ran it again and same thing again.She has googling it and sounds like it should be a easy fix with just a clog in one of the drainage tubes that runs to the sink lets hope.She says it runs through all the cycles just fine and sounds normal so she is thinking thats what it probably is.
I tell you its always something.
We had a warmer day today got into the mid 30's but tomorrow it's back to the single digits.
Thanks for the heads up on the coffee I think it's just best to always stay away from it you never know what's going to be in it.
Hope your having a great week so far.
Let's get George and Peepers together again for a play date. Sweet dreams my love.

  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.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
"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.

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.

I'm so happy we won a award last night.Your mom did a great job on the picture so it's no surprise.
I had a lovely time with last night. Sorry for being a bit quiet my mom was distracted with making a peach cobbler then BC was acting up then I got so far behind with what was going on I hope you can forgive me.
Yes my mom got all her errands done yesterday so she can stay home all day today.
We really haven't been getting much snow this winter which is very nice. My mom will take the cold any day over the snow.
My mom is loving the new dryer it drys the clothes so much faster than the old one.Think she just has one more load to wash and then she is finally caught up on the laundry.
We should hang out at the kissing booth later so Peepers and George can play for a bit.Hope your having a good day.

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.

Wow, that's a lot of wind! Hope your folks had a good time, though. Getting dinner early is a treat sometimes.
I personally think you and Hulk should win big, those headdresses are spectacular!
Today it's snowing like crazy, must be 4 inches out there already, and it hasn't slowed down yet. Mom walked the dogs, and they all came back with a layer of snow on top of fur and mom's coat, hahaha. We are glad we don't have to go out in this. The wildlife center cancelled Raptor Handling training. Mom will stay in until it's time for dinner.
Tonight mom and the family are celebrating Lena's birthday with a dinner. Everyone was going to come here, but mom's daughter does not like driving her monster of a car in the snow, so now they're all going to her house. Lena will pick mom up, though, so it's less cars to try to park. Hopefully we will be back in time for the milonga, but if not, we will be there as soon as mom returns. I hope to see you tonight. Till then, stay warm, get lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

  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.
.......
5. “The Babadook” (Dir: Jennifer Kent).
A superior horror tales that is brilliant in every way. What an amazing first film: Writing, Direction, Cinematography --- pitch-perfect performances.
An amazing film that works on a few different levels.
.......
6. "Edge of Tomorrow"
7. "Enemy"
8. "Ida"
9. "Into the Woods"
10. "Jodorowsky's Dune"
11. "Locke"
12. "The Immigrant"

I sure hope you win for most festive at the Milonga! I voted for you ... love the costumes!
Hope your parronts have a good time listening to the band. Funny to hear you say they have to dress warm ... LOL! Up here is REALLY COLD!
It isn't mom that is the problem. Dad doesn't want to move. Mom & I have our bags packed! dad has fun when he goes somewhere but, getting him to move is the problem!
I'm having a bad allergy week and so is mom. I think we are allergic to cold and snow! Last night was -25 (not sure what the wind chill was). It's another cold one (-24) with snow of course for tonight. I'm still freezing up here ... save me! Who's making the hot chocolate run?
Hugs
Chyna

  Hi Squeaky
We are going to have a heat wave into the 20's tomorrow then it's back to the single digits Sunday. My mom better get out and run her errands tomorrow while it's warm so she can stay in all day Sunday. Our dryer broke about a week ago so the parronts got a new one and its being delivered tomorrow. My mom can't wait because the laundry is really starting to pile up.
I bet Peepers and George will be great friends I sure hope they stay small become I don't think I can take care of George if he gets to big.
Yes let's hang out at the kissing booth while your parronts are out.We can fill up on the Chinese food and watch movies.
I just think that our picture your mom made will win for most festive too she did a great job on it.
See you soon at the kissing booth.

  Hi Squeaky,
Thanks for stopping by. Hope you have a good weekend! I do not plan on going to the milonga tomorrow night since it's more for couples and I am a single bird. But I have been going each day to vote and I plan on checking the page later that night to find out the winners. Talk to you soon. Have a good time at the milonga.

Enjoy your day!! Leaving a vote for you.

Your friend,

  Hi Squeaky,
It's not necessary to apologize for not coming to vote at the KB. We understand what it is like to lose a bird. We were so sorry to hear about Scion. Glad you are feeling better though.

It was good to hear from you! Have a good night. Left a vote.

Your friend,
Chipper

  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.

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.

  Hi Squeaky
It sounds like a lot of our days, boring! Mom gets to go out, but she won't take us anywhere with this cold weather.
Today mom is kind of relaxing for awhile, but later she has to go to the funeral home. It's the one day viewing for Aunt Marge, with the funeral tomorrow morning. Mom talked to Aunt Ginny today again and she's holding up well. They were laughing on the phone and chatting about all kinds of things.
Mom doesn't like sitting in the funeral home for long, so she'll go this afternoon, but not go back tonight. It's really neat that Aunt Marge had all this arranged from 2002. She had everything paid for, and all the service arranged, because she told the funeral director that she didn't want to stick her kids with any bills. Mom is thinking that's a great idea, so she will talk to someone soon, and make arrangements. She expects to be around for some time, but it's a good idea to have things taken care of.
Okay, enough with the morbid, it's time for bird talk. Has anyone redeemed points for the new annual Bird Talk magazine? We redeemed points, haven't received it yet, and are hoping it will be the 2015 edition. Mom says when she redeemed the points, it was still a picture of last year's magazine. It occurred to her after she pressed the key that it was an old picture. If anyone has received it from points, let us know.
I hope you are having a good day, staying warm, and getting lots of cuddles and scritches. Hugs, Falco

Come visit me, Gizmo, I miss you, sweet boy, Willie, Peppino, Divo & Falco.
