Thunder Dogs

It's raining in Long Beach and Coco is scared of the thunder. My knee space has become his hiding cave

Poison - Ozono

So in 2004 I had the privilege to work with Malin Ackerman, aka Silk Spectre II from Watchmen. I was 16 years old and in a New York Film Camp for music videos. Her band at the time let us shoot them and our setting got to be the abandoned lab from Jurassic Park II on the Universal Studios lot. My teacher was Mike Sloat who, among other things, was really good friends with Chris Milk (see previous post).

I think they changed their name to Petal Stones or something.

Update 10/16/10: I just found out through youtube searches that they used our recorded footage from 2004 for future editing classes to work with. Damn, can we film some footage or what?

Wilderness Downtown

The most original experience you've ever seen so far. Chris Milk has showed his talents in many of his music videos, but this one is by far the most creative I have ever seen. Bravo Mr. Milk, and bravo Mr. Fire.

get a little wild

Snuggy.... Now with Small Pox

Ok, so as the story goes, settlers come, discover America for the 2nd time, slaughter a bunch of natives, but what I want to know is how on earth did John Smith successfully deliver smallpox infested blankets to these people? Wouldn't the white guy that dropped them off get smallpox? Would he already be in some sort of stage 1 smallpox that is easily noticed by the Indian? Wouldn't he act suspicious in some ways? I could imagine,

"Hey I have a gift for you!"
"Sweet, what is it?"
"Nice warm new handmade blankets!" 
"Rad, I'm like so cold at night."
"Yea no prob bud."
"Cool... well, where are they?"
"Oh just on the end of this rope, a half-mile away"
"Oh, a bit odd, but sure. Ill just pull it i--"
"No no no no!"
"Lemme just, uh, just let me get to a good distance."
"Yea... uh.... because you're gonna be soooo surprised. I just want to give you enough room"
"Yea so just enjoy. Be sure to stay warm tonight in those. Roll around in them and stuff."
[Captain Joe Shmo walks away]
"What a strange person. But I sure can't wait to get me some blanket action!"

I would be a little weary of those blankets from the first smallpoxy "achoo" coming off the guy (they sneeze right?)

Maybe they Just made them super fashionable and everybody went nuts for them regardless.
"This blanket makes me itch..... but it goes perfect with my buffalo skin leg warmers!"

Fred: The Movie!

My prayers have been answered! Also I think this is John Cena's big comeback to the big screen.

Computer 4 Dead

I bought Left 4 Dead a while back and have had endless difficulties being able to play it. Either wrong processor or not enough memory and so on and so forth. Yesterday was its release onto Mac OS X so all of the Steve Jobbers can play too.... except for one of them.

I suppose it is time to face the music and deem my laptop as obsolete in this cruel cruel world, and this time I DID have the right processor and just enough memory! Although, without a proper graphics card, where does that leave me as a wannabe graphic designer? So I suppose declaring my next purchase to be a laptop to benefit my future is a strong and acceptable statement. Plus I'll get to use my old laptop as one of those stay-at-home laptops, you know, the ones that just sit on the desk and are constantly plugged in! You just open it up and treat it like a desktop computer even though it's like "I aint no desktop computer! Why haven't I left this desk in weeks? Do you still love me?"

At least I can still play CS: Source

Phil's Song

Have you ever put in a cd that iTunes didn't recognize, so it just put the song titles that they thought were the right ones in it's place. Well my dad enjoys writing and recording his original songs every now and then and also enjoys putting them on discs. Well lucky for us his car has the same "title prediction software" for it's display screen as iTunes.

My new favorite song by him is now "I farted on santas lap."

I've added a new page to my blog. I now am selling my art prints directly from my blog to cut out those GD fees from Etsy. I will still post my works on Etsy, but I now offer this artist friendly alternative as well.

Enjoy my new collection!....  click HERE to see it, but also click over there (points to right side of page) to see my "Art For Sale" link.

I'm out!
