  5. VEGAS CONVENTION VIDEO CONTEST

    Whip out those clips and pics and get your software running!

    It's time for the Vegas Butler Award Video Contest!

    The Rules:

    FIRST: This year's video contest has a theme. In going along with this year's convention theme, the video contest theme is : All Things Scottish!

    Interpreting the theme is up to the individual video maker. The videos need to feature Gerard Butler, of course, as himself or any or all of his film roles.

    SECOND: We are having two different sections of this contest. In order to win the Butler award in Vegas, you must be present in Vegas. If you are not planning on attending the convention, we cannot accept your submission.

    However, because we are once again holding the Virtual Convention, we will hold another contest online as well. If you are planning to attend Vegas, we cannot accept your submission into the virtual contest. No video or vidder will be present in both contests.

    Both contests have the same theme and the same rules.

    THIRD: You cannot enter in a video you have entered in the past. This is exclusive to past Vegas conventions only. If you have a video you've entered in other contests besides Vegas, that's perfectly fine.

    FOURTH: Each vidder may enter ONE video and ONE ONLY. If you have a joint effort video, that one video will be the only entry the two of you can enter.

    FIFTH: Videos CANNOT contain:

    Material beyond PG-13. All videos entered in the voting MUST be suitable to be shown on the main forum. This includes video and audio content, including song lyrics. (no f-words please). This especially includes NUDITY. No backsides or female nipples or worse. This also includes EXCESSIVE VIOLENCE, none of which will be allowed in the contest (300 battle footage is, for the most part, just fine).

    Deadline:

    The deadline for BOTH video contests will be on

    MAY 17th at 12 NOON mountain time.

    That's a Monday, so you have the weekend for any last minute revisions.

    The initial voting for both contests will be held online following the deadline.

    Email your submissions to mrscreedy.gals@gmail.com and please indicate whether you are entering for the Vegas or Virtual convention. Remember, you cannot enter both.

    DESTINY

    The year was 1969. The young Scottish lass sat back in her rocking chair and gazed down at the perfect angel in her arms. Just days before on the 13th of November, she was blessed with the birth of the beautiful baby boy cradled against her breast.

    She had known the minute she laid eyes on her son that he was special. Not in the sense like most new mothers think their babies are special, but she had a deep rooted feeling in her heart that he would touch many lives one day.

    As the newborn stirred and opened his eyes, her breath caught in her throat for they were the most angelic she had ever seen. She leaned closer and whispered to her son, "promise me, little one, that you will always hold me dear in your heart and never forget the land you were born of. I know you'll make me proud someday. You are destined for great things. I can feel it in my heart." A smile crept across the child's face as if to acknowledge her sentiments.

    Forty years later, the same woman sits next to her grown son. Her handsome, yet humble son with the same angelic eyes that have always taken her breath away. As he gently squeezes her hand, she admires the impressive man he has become. He might have lost his way a few times, but he had found his calling, and now sits in this theater with distinguished colleagues, now one of the most recognized and admired of them.

    Her heart thumps as he smiles down at her. A voice from the stage echoes across the hall. "AND THE AWARD FOR BEST ACTOR GOES TO....". As his name is read, he turns to her and wraps her in his strong arms, kisses her cheek, and wipes away a joyous tear as he steps toward the stage to thunderous applause. As he takes the award and steps up to the podium, he has to check his emotions before he can speak. He had dreampt of this moment since he was a boy, and now it was reality.

    "Wow! I can't believe this. I'm so honored.Thank you so much. My fans....you're the best. Thank you for staying with me all of these years. I never thought I'd get here, but someone special always told me to follow my dreams, never give up, and do special things with the gifts given to me. Whenever I come to a fork in the road, all of them lead me home to Scotland, to the one person I hold dearest in my heart forever and always. I couldn't have done this without her. I love you, Mum."

    A tear trickled down his cheek as he held the golden statue above his head and blew a kiss to his mum as he stepped away from the podium.

    Congrats to each of you!!

    MIDNIGHT SOJOURN

    I couldn't sleep, again! I pulled on my hoody.

    It was cool, but not a cold autumn night, moon hung high in the black sky, the remnants of the fallen leaves still blowing about, their smell with that of the city, hung on the air carried aloft by the breeze. Most of the trees were bare and their limbs cast eerie shadows in the street lights.

    A figure came towards me. I grasped the mace in my pocket. He was tall, strong looking, and could easily over power me! Both hands were shoved deep in his pockets! Did he have a knife?

    As we got closer, I debated on whether to cross the street or keep my head down and walk on.

    A gust swirled up, blowing off the stranger's cap which playfully cart wheeled towards me. I retrieved it.

    "Good thing you came along!" he replied in a delightful accent that put me at ease. "This was a gift from someone dear for my birthday yesterday."

    "Happy Birthday." I said.

    "Could I treat you to coffee for saving my hat? " he asked.

    We crossed the street and I wondered if I was doing the right thing. He could be luring me in to his trap! But something about him didn't seem threatening, except for the bulge in his pocket! Could it be a gun?

    "Do you live nearby?" he asked.

    "Moved in last week." I answered.

    "Then we're neighbors." he replied. "Welcome!"

    "Thanks. I haven't had much time to get out." I admitted.

    "I'll have to show you around sometime." he offered.

    "I'd like that. Being in a big city can feel quite lonely." I told him.

    "I know that feeling, even when you're surrounded by people." he replied.

    He pulled his hand from his pocket, producing what looked like a jar of jam.

    "It's my Mum's jelly." he explained. "When I can't sleep, I go to this all night coffee shop, have some toast and spread on a little "home". I never seem to have any bread at my place. You should try some! It's amazing stuff!."

    "You carry a jar of jelly and I carry," I pulled out my can of pepper spray. "a girl's best friend!."

    He laughed deliciously, "I thought you were going to show me a knife!"

    We entered the shop and he ordered his "usual", making small chat until the toast and coffee came. He was quite handsome and I was happy he did most of the talking.

    We shared the jelly, toast and each other's warm company on this cool fall night. I felt comfortable with him, like an old friend I had never met!

    "We should do this again." he suggested. "I could use the company of a well equipped lady on my midnight sojourns."

    We both laughed at his choice of words, but I understood what he meant.

    I held up my cup.

    "To midnight sojourns, good neighbors, and Mum's homemade jelly!" I proclaimed.

    He smiled and touched his cup to mine and I saw his eyes! I could get used to looking in those eyes, even over a midnight latte'.

    The End or not.
