Welcome!Hi, I’m Tony, a Longshot Lucky Winner – same as You. Whether you have landed here intentionally or at random, whether you are a fellow, read that “curious,” time & space traveler, a kindred spirit, or simply a coerced friend or family member, I do hope you’ll look around. Please note that my too modest, talented wife and life partner Hessie (after the application of some considerable pressure) has joined me on what is now Our Overlook. As those of who have visited lately have seen, the views out here have been greatly enriched by her wise and evocative perspectives. NEWs FLASH: Hessie has just published her critically acclaimed memoir, “The Once Was A Girl: My Philadelphia Story.” It is available on Amazon in paperback or as a Kindle book.
For 50+ years Hessie and I have partnered on a variety of projects, most importantly: making our way in this world; begetting, raising and caring for our children as best we knew how, and lately, as adoring and all-knowing grandparents. When I first met Hessie, I posed as an engineering student pretending to be an artistic type (or was it the other way around ? – probably both). I showed her pretty face some of my artwork (if it wasn’t very good, it was in my Physics Book which I correctly surmised might prejudice her favorably – bingo). Ironically, it didn’t take long before I was forced to realize that she has as much or more talent than I in many matters, than including some creative (she is a much better painter than I for sure) and technical (she is generally more handy, and is the one who’ll read and understand an instruction manual, or at least remember where I’ve misplaced it). Unlike many bigger, better known flash in the pan personalities/egos, Hessie’s career in “pictures” began back in the deep trough of the last century. After disappointing some by not seeking a Hollywood career, she began as our unpaid (no-budget) film ingenue. She doubled as our tirelessly competent editor. Her achievements included than once making something from nothing scraps found on the cutting room floor. Since those early days success has followed her down a long mirrored hall as she’s gracefully evolved into our one-take-only world travel diva, and my most (only) trusted video pre-release critic. In our Video section there are links to many of our 40+ years of video and film. There you can enjoy some by clicking on the title. And/or you can head over to our largest video sharing channel (Youtube: >50 videos and growing) just by clicking on the avatar of me (yes it is me/ myself/I – making a rare appearance on camera – lumbering into the post sunset glow) at the very bottom of this and every page of our website. From this “Overlook” home page you can navigate to any of the our content categories by clicking on the headings at the top of this page or, alternatively, clicking on the Categories buttons to the right (yeah, we’ve got got system redundancies, belts with suspenders stuff – but the button option will bring up more embedded art.) Non-commercial downloads? Sure, but since (as opposed to Hessie) I live for hits (a slight exaggeration), attribution would be nice. Please be kind. Everything on this site is original and copyrighted. Spammers, life is too short, your hits I do night need or want. Want to leave a comment? Questions? Ideas? All fine. You can do so on the site or email us firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com We’d like to hear from you, especially if you find something here that resonates. No faint praise, dutiful or otherwise please.
Do come by again if you are so inclined. I am sentimental enough to sometimes enjoy reunions, the good ones anyway. Sincerely, Tony (Longshot Lucky Same As You)
P.S. I would like to again thank intergalactic Pro Joshua Gelwicks of NoDeadEnd for launching weighty us and some of our stuff out into these cosmic fields…spatial ethers…ultra gravity horizons…seminal cyberwhatevers.
