This is Halloween, This is Halloween

Today was my favorite holiday! It was pretty friggen sweet. I dressed up as Edward Scissorhands and thought it looked really cool, I couldn't stop smiling when I looked in a mirror, ha ha. So here are some picture of it...

We also had the play Romeo and Juliet this weekend, Shakespeare classic tragic love tail. Quite an adventure this has been. The two performance nights were amazing, it was so exciting! Oh yeah, the part I played was Mercutio whom is Romeo's crazy/insane/totally wicked/slightly gay friend. C'mon the guy never gets a girl if you know what I mean. I didn't get into that character until way late in practice. Then performance night I got the make-up and it was inspiring. And well-here are some pictures from the play too...

Brandon a.k.a. Gimpy (Benvolio)

Mikey (Tybalt)

Mac, Kaci and Tristin a.k.a. Charley's Angels

Jeff (some old guy) and I







It was an awesome play and everyone did an amazering job (That's Jack Quincey talk for better than amazing, k?)
Um, everything else has been going slow. Headless hasn't gotten very far since last time because I've been so busy on building Lego sets for it :( I'm going to have Jordan over this weekend and we're gonna think up some gags for the movie, that's always fun.
News on Emily, she has been doing really well lately. She's eating birdseed out of my hand now, its pretty sweet. So she's used to my hand (with a glove on it) I'm gonna slowly work on getting her out of the cage now.
Well I can't have a post without a movie now. So here is SHADOWS. A kind of weird horror movie that's not really a horror movie that I made back in 9th grade. I just redid the voices for it and added music (sorry Mr. Little :( )But its really kind of my first clay-motion movie.

Lesssee, what else should I post about that's of interest. Music stuff-nothing really new, I'm in the process of saving up for one of Danny Elfman's new CD's. It's called Serenada Schizophrana and its a concert work rather than a musical score for a movie. I don't think Elfman has done anything like this before, so I can't wait to hear how he does with no limits.
I've been playing Destroy All Humans for PS2, ha ha, its really funny. Your an alien and you terrorize the human race with out of this world weapons. When you beat the game it also unlocks this secret video that is an old film called Teenagers from Outer Space made back in the 50's, it was really interesting.
I better go to bed, Happy Halloween-every one sing to the pumpkin song...

Sand in a Sandbox

I'm back. That's a picture of Valentine from Mirror Mask, I drew it during math class! Tonight was a most interesting night. A possum got run over at the end of our driveway. I told my mom I would go clean it up, but more on that later...
This update is dedicated to my friend Cheryl! At the beginning of August this year I was asked to do a movie about Jack and Jordan for Cheryl's birthday by my other friend Jaseylyn. I gladly accepted and got to work on it right away! Unfortunately my camera started being a boob and I couldn't work on it for a while. But I finally got it done about a couple weeks ago. So here is the Jack and Jordan adventure, SANDBOX, the secret movie i've been working on! I hope you all enjoy it, especially Cheryl! :D

My birdy, Emily, has been being a little bit of a boob too (ha ha, that word is silly) She was doing really well and then she got really afraid of me again. So i'm working my way up to gain her trust again. She also likes to bite, really hard and that's no fun, but she's just scared.
OH yeah! The possum! So I went out with a shovel to scrape the thing off my driveway and it was worse then I thought. Upon approaching the Vermont I saw that's it's stomach was ripped open and some of its intestine was hanging out. Its eyeballs had popped out of their sockets and its tongue was hanging out. I laughed, it looked like something I might draw. In fact, I think it will be my next drawing project :D
So anyway...I downloaded Marilyn Manson's version of This is Halloween from The Nightmare Before Christmas. I'm not a fan of Manson's work, but it was really kind of neat to hear it in guitar and stuff. I also downloaded The Itchy and Scratchy Show theme song from The Simpsons, it's funny :P
I have to go take a shower now, so bye.

I found that old picture of Jack and Jordan and the Chocolate Factory and thought it looked pretty cool besides the fuzziness :)
I thought it was that time to update again, so here I am. The secret movie is done and I shall have it up here by next week. I've also completed another movie which was a History Project for a class in school. Jack and Jordan return this time to teach us about the civil war, however I don't have that one uploaded yet :( I'm sorry. That one will be next week too. In addition i've also completed editing my old claymation Shadows which I made about two years ago now. I redid the voices and added some music. Its actually kind of creepy, Mwa ha ha ha ha! I've also started work again on Headless, I'm still not that far into it but its a working progress. Jack has been busy...in his own crap. This proves I have way too much time on my hands, which I think everyone knew already :D
Well lets see, more fun crap...baby its cold outside! I absolutely love it! People hate the cold, and that's okay. I really prefer being cold over warm. I love stepping out in the cool frisky air and just smelling it all in, it brings me back to childhood days.
Hey guess what! I'm on Prozac now! I kind of really rather enjoy it a little bit. It gets my mood up, but it also scares me to death that I might be going overboard with it. So please please please let me know if I am getting on your nerves, I might tend to be a little more hyper sometimes, and I deeply apologize for that.
Oh I almost forgot, here is another old movie of mine of mouth movements and crap.
Mouth Movements

I'm sure i'll be updating again next week so I'll stop talking, goodbye.
