The deadline at Hurd Studio is wednesday, and we are going to make it. Or at least my stuff will. Good thing I have been spending every minute except for sleeping there, or I might not have.

First real, serious gig I have to say. Very good experience. Excatly what I was looking for. Learned alot, did alot, made a good impression. Cept my lighting skills could be better and faster. But I knew that. I have never done it before.

And regarding the title of this entry. I just finished reading 21 seconds of giberish I orriginally recorded for my short, but passed on because it just was not the right energy, But it will be a blast and one hell of a challange animating to. First real effort at lip synch in 2D. Here we go.

I've been lucky enough to be working on rendering at hurd which leaves many stray minutes to paruse blogs such as the art of Glen Keane. Wow. Talk about inspiriation and motivation.

Goodbye summer. Although I miss not your heat waves, and dissaprove of your behavior in July and August, it was fun.


I want one and I don't know why. Or perhaps a reason to put it to good use.

Good to be back

Spikes covering his fore-arms, tattoos and scars on his the face, the frail, drunk little man shakes my hand,” good to be back in jersey ... I went through a lot of fights to get here.”

“Worth it?” I ask.

“I don’t like fighting.” He says, executing a miraculous, stumble-free dismount off the escalator.

Let There Be Sleds!

So I have all the kids in the neighborhood pulling sleds now. Cept for the teenagers cause they are too cool to show any interest at all. And its not sleds plural, its my sled, and only once, but that is besides the point.

After I was done on saturday I let em have a go at it. Nothing like the biggest, bossy-est kid in the group talk tough about how easy it is, then first time he takes off, jerk to a stop like he's tied to the wall.

The picture blow, although not me, is a about what you will see on the side streets of jersy city three days a week. Cept more weight, hair, side burns, and a sexier ass.


And my dog is dead. Put down this morning. it being, 666 and all, maybe satan will be pleased. Now I don't need to sacrifice any virgins.

Word of the Day

Today's word is "blivit." Definition: "10 pounds of nonsense in a 5 pound bag."

Food for thought ...

Ever have one of those days ...

The soon to be proud owner of a protable personal audio device. Good bye cruel world and sideways hat wearing doofus who assumes everyone else on the train wants to hear the latest lame hip-hop via your cell phone turned up as loud as it goes.

This is going to be a good month.

web site HO!

And I start down the time consuming task of making a web page. Now there is at least the possibility of others seeing how much time I am putting in huddled over light boxes, computer screens, and citique tablets, other then my two animation comrades.

Who knows maybe someday Naked Apple will be a house hold name.
