Cera sighting Sunday on the plaza

Andrea Slatter was walking around the plaza Sunday night, eating ice cream and looking at the pastels.

Michael Cera and another man approached Slatter on the plaza. His friend did all the talking at first, they were looking for a good place to eat. "I kept looking at him and wondering if that was him. I thought I was tripping."

Cera’s newest movie, Nick and Nora’s Infinite Play List, was released on Friday. The young actor has stared in Superbad (2007), and Juno (2007). Cera gained notability from his roll as George Michael Bluth in the defuncted sitcom, Arrested Development.

"I was kind of nervous because I knew it was him but I didn’t want to say anything." Slatter suggested Tomo’s, and they started walking that direction, Cera and his friend began to follow them.

When they got to Tomo’s, a couple people ran over to Cera. They looked like they were going to leave, but then stuck around trying to figure out a good place to eat.

So Slatter went over with her ice cream to chat with him.

"I was like, ‘what are you doing here?’ He was really weird and awkward, kind of like in all his movies," said Slatter.

Melody, this brings home what a rarity nationally known celebs are in HumCo I guess. Anyway, I came across something you may want to trumpet - check this out:

You have got to see this film's preview online!

Dear Family and Friends,

Last night I watched a film documentary called "CALL+RESPONSE" in Hollywood that inspired a passion in my heart to share with all those I know to support a film that is more than a film, but a "cause" that is worth fighting for. The last time I saw a film that had the potential and impact to actually save real lives was Bella, this movie inspires me the same. Check out the trailer

Call + Response is a film that must be SEEN and its STORY must be TOLD. My friend worked on this project to expose one of the GREATEST INJUSTICES of our day "HUMAN SEX TRAFFICKING" which now millions around the world are enslaved and exploited in this demonic system. WE CAN END THIS EVIL...but we must RESPOND and uncover this great wrong in our day. I encourage everyone of you reading this post, to support this film by watching it, telling as many others as possible to watch it opening weekend Oct 10th and to request to get this film in a theater in your town. This is more than a movie, this is a CAUSE WORTH FIGHTING FOR. This movie is not for entertainment, it was made to challenge us to TAKE ACTION and make a difference in this world for those who are bound by injustice and Satan's hold. Let FREEDOM ring! Pray. Support. Take Action. JMA

The Film

CALL+RESPONSE is a first of its kind feature documentary film that reveals the world's 27 million dirtiest secrets: there are more slaves today than ever before in human history. CALL+RESPONSE goes deep undercover where slavery is thriving from the child brothels of Cambodia to the slave brick kilns of rural India to reveal that in 2007, Slave Traders made more money than Google, Nike and Starbucks combined.

Luminaries on the issue such as Cornel West, Madeleine Albright, Daryl Hannah, Julia Ormond, Ashley Judd, Nicholas Kristof, and many other prominent political and cultural figures offer first hand account of this 21st century trade. Performances from Grammy-winning and critically acclaimed artists including Moby, Natasha Bedingfield, Cold War Kids, Matisyahu, Imogen Heap, Talib Kweli, Five For Fighting, Switchfoot, members of Nickel Creek and Tom Petty's Heartbreakers, Rocco Deluca move this chilling information into inspiration for stopping it.

Music is part of the movement against human slavery. Dr. Cornel West connects the music of the American slave fields to the popular music we listen to today, and offers this connection as a rallying cry for the modern abolitionist movement currently brewing.

The New Model

There is a sea of change happening in human rights activism. The world's issues cannot be solved alone by governments and non-profits, but require community-based participation. As a feature film, CALL+RESPONSE has the unique position of being not only a ground-breaking genre-bending film, but due to the fact that this project was funded completely through donations, it operates as a powerful movement with 100% of profits going to fund global field projects on the front lines of this issue.

CALL+RESPONSE is creating interactive field projects for each aspect of human slavery: sex slavery, labor slavery, child soldiers and child slavery. All profits from the use of the film, dvd, soundtrack, itunes downloads will be directed, by the viewers, to these projects with clear start and finish points (ie a landrover for a child soldier rehab camp, sewing machines for a after-care training facility). Our goal is to fund and celebrate completed projects together in community. We are closing the loop by allowing viewers to become participants in the solution.

I Shot First - A Han Solo Halloween

This past Halloween I wanted to do something inherently sexy. Who is sexier than Han Solo? Answer: no one.

I started with pictures of Han. Specifically from "A New Hope."

Here are the elements: Off white, mandarin-collar shirt Black/navy vestDark pants with red stripesBlack boots (I already owned a pair)Belt and holsterBlaster
I started at Thrift Town, where I found a pair of dark slacks, a shirt, and a black suede jacket. I think I spent around $12. I cut the sleeves off the jacket and used red duct tape for the stripes. 
I ordered a toy blaster online, it only comes in white and orange. So I had to spray paint it. I used this tutorial.

If I was going to go further with this costume I'd make a replica of the belt, like this awesome woman did.

Luke really wanted to be Luke this year. His costume was a little more tricky. We bought a karate uniform online, he used a pair of khaki pants he already had and we tried to make the boots out of Ace Bandages, but that didn't w…

Guest Post - Hand-made roll-up panniers by Libby Bowles

It's bike month everyone! Don't forget to check out, and register to win prizes and such. In other exciting news, my amazing friend Libby can do anything! She saw my post about panniers a while back and got it in her head to make a pair of these roll-up brooks brand panniers - and she did. Here's the story:
Hey there Melody,  Remember these (Brooks roll-up panniers)?Well, I was so in love that I decided to make my own. They still need a few finishing touches but I was so excited I just had to show you. 
I'm going to Tandy Leather on Monday to get the studs for the little internal straps and maybe get a set of leather handles to sew on top so I can carry them like a satchel while shopping.  I made the pattern based on the size of a paper grocery bag so they should be big enough for two full bags of groceries! I think they look perfect on my Gazelle, don't you? (Yes, they look amazing).
I wanted to make them a little prettier on the inside so …
