Not a coffee

But sometimes just as important to making puppets...

Good Friday

It isn't the first time the Crowes have split up…
Who knows what the future will bring…
But it does seem like this is it…

These guys kept my groove on during some strange times, and I'm glad to say I saw them live a few times…
So , for now Rest in Peace to the Black Crowes

He better have a Chevy...

HEAD!!! It's coming!

is a one of a kind film starring an all puppet cast in a throwback to the slasher films of the 1970's and 1980's. A group of twenty somethings go for a nice fall weekend camping trip and end up in the middle of nightmare they may never escape from…

Elmwood Productions invites you to join us March 28th and 29th at Paris In Plantsville Gallery and Studio for the premiere screenings of HEAD.

Following the film the film makers along with cast members will be on hand for a Q&A session for anyone interested.

Tickets will go on sale February 1 on Paris In Plantsville's website or directly at the gallery, and are $8.00. the 3/28 screening starts at 8:00 PM, and the 3/29 screening is at 7:00 PM, doors open an hour earlier both nights.

HEAD is Rated R, for gore, horror, four letter words and anything else you'd expect in a horror movie starring puppets, so we advise leaving the kids at home!

Stay up to date on the Facebook Event Page, or on The HEAD Production Blog -

It's A Crash Course For The Ravers...

Little after ten AM, New Year's Eve…
Just saw my dear friend Gabe, and we laughed.

Home now listening to Bowie's new set, Nothing Has Changed and enjoying coffee as I prepare to get some art on for the rest of the day.

It's been good year.  Hell, overall it's been a great year.  And maybe nothing has changed…  But as the song says: "Nothing has changed…  Everything has changed"

Looking forward to the madness 2015 will bring.

And speaking of Bowie…
