This is my personal weblog where I post everything that doesn't really fit into my other sites. If you're interested those can be found at storyFANATIC and Seward Street. The former is all about storytelling and screenwriting; the latter all about character animation.

Of course, everything online is kept in place at my personal homepage.

Now you know everything.

There is no animation business plan more foolproof than creating work from a foundation of creative integrity

Audiences are good people. They will watch mean characters like Walt Kowalski or Shrek or Scrooge, because they will quietly hope for them to change for the better and discover the good in life

Andrew Flavin:

Love those headphones (their earbuds are great too).  It doesn’t surprise me that Marco, the maven, is a Sennheiser guy.

I love them too - and pretty much for all the same reasons that Marco lists: great sound, cancel out external noise, and super comfortable. I’ve had two pairs in about 5 years. The last pair died because I kept taking them home over the weekend to play Call of Duty 4.

Best place to get them (price and service) I’ve found is: headphones.com.

Engraved Kindle

Cool idea, but I don’t think I could part from it long enough to have this done.

aboutalex:

This is my son’s first web ad, and I couldn’t be more proud.  In all his enthusiasm he, of course, made it in MS Paint and intends on having it flash (regardless of my advice that most people don’t like flashing ads).  In our kitchen there is even a countdown to when his website will go “live.”

At 9 years old he’s undertaken the monumental task of learning how to program computer games, starting with Java.  He spent the last year creating Super Mario World levels with Lunar Magic and, having grown bored with that, is ready to move on to the next big thing.
