Good Morning!

Yesterday I did another episode of the podcast  "Let's Chat" and it was a blast.  I think it'll be up by Friday.
And now I'm kicking back, listening to"Musicology" with a cup of hot coffee on this cold spring morning.
I'm feeling good.  I hope you are too.


I haven't posted any new puppet pictures since Mid-February.  I haven't built anything I can share, really…  The boat will be sailing gain after this weekend though.  I'll be back into full on prep mode for the next Elmwood adventure!

Speaking on this coming weekend:
And now the obligatory HEAD plugging!

I chattered with Quirk!


My buddy J. Timothy Quirk has a great entertainment/news site called Nutmeg Chatter and he was cool enough to ask me to  sit down with him for a bit and discuss Elmwood and HEAD

It was a blast, and I love the pictures he took!

Good Morning!

I finished my ADR for "HEAD" yesterday, then went and recorded a podcast with my buddy Ray.  ANd before and in-between it all I got some writing done while hanging at my office away from home, Paris In Plantsville.  
I love creative days like that


A new coffee maker!
And it's awesome.
Yes coffee is that important to me that I'll blog about it.  
My awesome future in-laws got this for me for the birthday.
Like I said, I'm a lucky guy!

Here we go….

Coffee's is in the mug…
Queen II on the turntable…
And prepping for a creative day.  
Perfect start to 40.

I'm a lucky man to have the things in this life I have, family, friends, food, two crazy cats, and the opportunity to be constantly creative.

I'm 40?

“I didn’t promise anybody anything. What do I know about Hollywood anyway? Just the dreams I got from sitting through too many double features”

“So why did you leave the swamp in the first place?”

“Cuz some agent fella said I had talent. Hmm, he probably says that to everybody.”

“On the other hand, if you hadn’t left the swamp you’d be feeling pretty miserable anyhow.”

“Yeah. But, then it would just be me feeling miserable. Now, I got a lady pig, and a bear, and a chicken, and a dog, and a thing; whatever Gonzo is. He’s a little like a turkey.”

“Yeah, a little like a turkey, but not much.”

“I guess not. Anyhow, I brought them all out here. Into the middle of nowhere. It’s all my fault.”

“Still, whether you promised them something or not, you gotta remember: they wanted to come.”

“But, that’s because they believed in me.”

“No. They believed in the dream.”

“Well, so do I, but…”

“You do?”

“Yeah, of course I do.”

‘Well then?”


“Well then, I guess I was wrong when I said I never promised anyone. I promised me. Hmmm…”

I agree sir...

Josh and Todd...

With all the hype for "HEAD" since last summer (with the Kickstarter, the behind the scenes videos, the screenings coming up) it's easy to miss out or forget that Elmwood has made other things.  Hahahaha!

One of them is our first feature film; "Josh and Todd: The Story of A Man and His Puppet"!
And tomorrow we'll be posting he movie in full on YouTube.  
I'm not going to do a huge crazy post about how we made the film, like I did with "HEAD" earlier this week.  But, I am going to say thank you.  
Thank you to everyone who worked on the film, and performed in it.
Thank you to everyone who came to a screening over the past few years and laughed.
Thank you to everyone who got a hold of the "Official Bootleg" DVD and dug it and shared it.
Thanks to everyone who put up with me while making the flick.
And thank you to Brie!

So come back tomorrow to see the flick!
And now some pictures from the movie…  
The crazy people who made it, were in it, and helped get it screened!
