Desperately needing help part II

Desperately needing help part II

Last Updated on December 31, 2020 by Celia

I have changed the background image to make things easier to read. I have also tweaked the charitable donations settings–now appearing as the first sidebar widget to the right (the left side on the blog page).

The donations should work now as I have tested them out. 12 days left. Yikes. 😥 I need a miracle. Help. Please.

Help.

I will be painfully honest : I am reaching out to all my friends and the entire internet fan base out here. I need to pay off the credit card I use to maintain the site. I only have until the 12 of January, or 13 days time.

The amount I need is $64.

I live on a fixed income due to my Cerebral Palsy and can’t afford to spare any extra money at this time. I have already paid more than $200 since October, and I am exhausted!

To donate, please find the $64 Drive Campaign side bar widget (seen below),

or click here.

 

I am shamelessly down on my knees begging–PLEASE HELP! I can’t miss this payment!

H E L P,

P L E A S E!

Thanks much in advance! 😳

Changes

Changes

Last Updated on December 25, 2020 by Celia

Changes, changes, everywhere!

  1. New theme – I’ve spent long hours tweaking it to get the design just so.
  2. Deleted some plugins; added others. This is for maintenance reasons.
  3. More fonts for customization in pages and posts.
Found this entry on Judith while searching for her late last night. Notice the writer(s) have the incorrect date.

More is coming, but I am exhausted from working on this since yesterday.

Happy holidays, friends and fans! Until next time! 😀

Changes due to lack of interest.

I’ve closed commenting for the site and deleted the guestbook as no one was participating. I’ve been working hard the past couple of weeks to pay off bills for this site and it hasn’t been easy. I still have about $38 left before all is finally paid off. I should have everything paid off in the next 3 to 4 days.

One of these weeks I can finally rest easy.

That’s all for now. Until next time.

It has taken 5 days, but it’s finally done. What, you ask?

  1. Another hosting change. For $172.33, I’ve ensured this site will be hosted for the next 4 years!
  2. New flickr galleries. Just look around on the movie, tv show and commercial galleries located in the main menu.

I am exhausted from finalizing all the work, financing, and all other details, but it’s safe to say I won’t have to worry about this site for another 48 months, and that makes me tremendously elated! *sighs* 😀

Thank you, Hostinger, for your holiday deal and all the technical support. Moving this site took twice as long as I expected for the oddest reasons.

If anyone would like to help out, please consider a paypal donation. I deeply appreciate and could use the help.

Thanks to all friends and fans for your patience.

Until next time. <3

James Horner’s The Land Before Time expanded edition

James Horner’s The Land Before Time expanded edition

Last Updated on November 5, 2020 by Celia

I have to, as a soundtrack collector, pay tribute to the score of one of Judith’s most known films, “The Land Before Time”. I first saw the film in 1989 as a 6-year-old with my 5-year-old sister and my dad. I loved the music, especially the opening cue as it built up from near silence to a roaming crescendo.

Nearly all the characters have their own themes and each helps tell the story.

I remember finding a copy of the album as a 16-year-old while browsing at a Hastings bookstore. I later gave it to my grandma because I knew she loved the movie so much.

I’m delighted someone decided to release all the music for this movie and will buy a copy as soon as I can raise the money for it.

Here is a  link to a nice review of it on a James Horner music site which is particularly in depth:

You can buy your copy here.

That’s all for now. Until next time! 😀

“Simplify, simplify.”

“Simplify, simplify.”

Last Updated on October 21, 2020 by Celia

I did away with Jetpack as it kept creating disconnect errors. My advice to anyone using wordpress to make websites: NEVER use Jetpack! It is the buggiest plugin.

That being said, I had to get creative with plugins to replace the functions I wanted for this site. I replaced site counters, the flickr stream, and the facebook page stream. More trial and error because frequently, that is what being a webmaster is–finding out what works and what doesn’t.

Everything should work properly now. I have been checking exhaustively for any errors. If anyone spots any more, please contact me.

Until next time. 😀

Getting things together

Getting things together

Last Updated on October 8, 2020 by Celia

I had to go back and change the links to the Jaws 4 deleted scene and Entertainment Tonight promo because the host I switched to September 30 (October 1st their time) does not include Jetpack Pro for free and thus 10 GB of free video hosting. I’ve also transfered this site’s domain name because it will save me an additional $7.42 per year.

I am not sure why the home page keeps showing up as an older version of itself, but I think it has to do with the host and domain migration.

Slowly, things are starting to work again and coming together. More is coming later.

Thanks for all the paitence and support. It keeps me going.

Until next time. 🙂

Switching hosts

Switching hosts

Last Updated on October 2, 2020 by Celia

Yet again, I’ve switched hosts. I needed to save money. This time, I’m paying $90 per year which is much better than $212. It’s been rough and tumble since I was kicked off a server that was hosting this site for free at the time. I don’t really make any spending money, so I have to wait for family members and or any site donations. This site is the most expensive bill I am solely responsible for.

If the site is buggy or goes down, the new hosting adjustments are why.

I will try to work out all the kinks soon. Please bear with me.

Thanks.

Slamdance trailer and music video added to page

Slamdance trailer and music video added to page

Last Updated on September 20, 2020 by Celia

Because I was surfing youtube last week, I found the Slamdance trailer and a very 1980’s music video, “High Hopes”. Every artist tried to sound like David Bowie in those days.

This is part of what the updated Slamdance page looks like:

Enjoy the campy 1980’s nostalgia! 😆

If anyone wants me to update faster or more often, please consider giving a paypal donation of $1.00 or more.

Until next time. 🙂
