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 time and space traveler, a kindred spirit, or simply a coerced friend or family member consumed with guilt, I do hope you’ll look around. My wife and life partner Hessie (after some consider pressure was applied) has finally consented to enrich the views from this overlook with some of her beautiful and gentle wise perspectives. For 50+ years we 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 was 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, including some creative (she is a much better painter than I) or technical (is she she generally more handy, and is the one who’ll read and understand an instruction manual, or remember where I’ve forgotten it). Unlike some better know personalities, Hessie’s career in “pictures” began back deep in the last last century as our glorious no-budget film ingenue. She doubled as our tirelessly competent and clover, unpaid editor who achievement included making something out of nothing from the scraps on the cutting room floor more than once. In recent years she has gracefully progressed to become our One-Take-Only World-Travel -Diva; plus our most trusted post-production 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 I, I am used to being my own stuntman) unstoppably lumbering into the sunset) at the very bottom of this and every page of this 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) live for hits, 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. It’s firstname.lastname@example.org Like to hear from you, especially if you can find something here that resonates. Positive feedback is always so welcome (but no faint praise, dutiful or otherwise please – double ditto for spam or worse.
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 thank webmaster and near speed of light traveler Joshua Gelwicks of NoDeadEnd. Josh was essential to the launching of weighty us and some of our stuff out into these cosmic fields…spatial ethers…seminal cyberwhatevers.
