Hollywood - isn't she lovely

Pictures I took on the way to the New Beverly Theater.

Matador 4

Did I ever show you the apartment?

I don't think I did. These pictures are from when we first moved in so the poster arrangement has since changed (several times) to include mostly a lot of Dark Knight, but all in all this is where we live.

oh and the curtains there on the far wall are our screen. We have a projector. It's our home theater... with actually red velvet curtains. I made them myself :) with window curtains to match.

And when I say we I mean myself and this guy.

Don't worry. He's not as deep as he accidentally looks here. Not even close.

Recent Food Adventures

1. I invented a soup.... or well made up an awesome recipe. It's something to the effect of roasted eggplant curry soup. It's delicious. If you wanna know how you will have to ask me.

2. I made green salsa (salsa verde for those of you keeping track). Strangely one of the tomatillos had a penis. I used it anyway.

3. I made a banana cream pie for the first time. It didn't really turn out. Fist and for most I did not have a mixer so I had to whip the meringue by hand. It was nearly impossible so that part didn't work quite right. Second the pudding (cream part) never got thick and solid. It stayed pudding so it was an all around failure. I will do better next time. The guys in the office will make sure I at least try again.

The Buddy System

I have been talking with a new stop motion studio called Buddy System Studio. They are eager to have my help on their current projects and I am eager to oblige. They used to work with the Robot Chicken/ Moral Oral crowd at Shadow Machine, but have decided to move on and create their own studio.

I worked with them briefly before on a project for ESPN that was never aired. I enjoyed working with them quite a bit and was very excited when they called. Currently they are putting together a commercial for Penski trucking that will be entered in a competition to be played at Lambeau Field. Good ol' Wisconsin :) so you know they are good guys. Check out their reel HERE
