shall be lifted never more

We performed our play, The Crucible, this last weekend and I thought we did marvelous. As most of you know, I played the son of a bitching Judge Hathorne-whom I found out is really an ass hole, ha ha, no seriously this bastard just yelled a lot, but yeah, it was really me. It kind of sucked because with an ass hole character you have to yell a lot and when the third performance came around I caught a sore throat, but it didn't cause any harm, so I am glad for that :)
I finished another scene in Horaro and I am trying to figure out what I'm going to do for the next scene. It's kind of cool because I used to play with Legos all the time when I was little, I would like build a set and just pretend they were alive and have them walk around and do stuff that didn't make sense, all the while providing squeaky voices for them while playing, and now I can do something productive with that :D It's pretty cool.
I have a new video for you today. This is a movie I made with my sister's husband, his name is Adam. Adam and I both love animation, so when I went to go see my sister, Misty, a few years back (when I was a chubby little dude) we just basically improvised a movie with clay and live action. It was a great time, check it out!
The Magic Pen!

There is also a another video I'd like to share, but this one is not mine. This was Tim Burton's first animation. It is called Vincent, I hope you like it.

I am archiving my blog now, just thought I'd let you know :)
That's about all. "Kidnap Mr. Sandy Claws?"

come out come out wherever you are

I made an animation for my good friend Emily, because she didn't get anything for Easter. So I made her this movie, here you go Emily :D
Happy Easter

Well lets see, it has been a while.
I wrote a new story called The Gum. It's pretty short, but I really like it. I will post it up here when I finish typing it up. I am working on a story right now about a mattress that likes to eat people. I find its fun when you take objects and make them come alive and be evil or somethin, its fun :)
Horaro has come a long way, its pretty awesome. I am pretty much done with the third scene in the movie where it's in a classroom.
I really like the movie Hide and Seek. I watched it a couple weeks ago and I got connected instantly. I really got drawn to the characters closely, mostly Emily and her father. While some of the other characters you develop an annoyance for and wish they would go away, he he. I couldn't help but love the freaky "pull back the shower curtain and find a bloody corpse even though its quite morbid" sequences. I loved the hanging bicycle in the basement too, that was kinda classic :D (You have to see it to know what the hell I am talking about) :P
It had a nice twisting ending too, just a great horror movie in my opinion.
Our play is coming up in less than a week. I guess I am not really nervous for it, I got my lines down mostly, with the occasional slip here and there. I still need to work on my background acting, but I think I have it under control, I hope all the other Drama Monkeys do too.
"You know I love you more than anything Emily."
"That's what mommy said...before she killed herself."
