Sammy and Jim…

Hard to believe 25 years ago today I was a freshman in high school, walking home on a sunny may day listening o my Walkman… Playing a Guns N' Roses tape, no doubt. And I got home to find out the two of my artistic "idols" and influences had both passed away…

Here's to you, Sammy and Jim...

My face made the cover of the local paper!

And no one has rioted yet!
Check it out here - click the image to read the whole thing:


Even though "Animal Behavior" is mentioned as "Family Matters" it's still an awesome article!
It was nice to come home from work today and find this in my mailbox!
I wonder how soon before the editors get letters because the ugly guy in the cover is scaring people!  Hahaha!

Thank you Mr. Sutton for the article!!!

Elmwood Lampoon's Puppet Vacation...

With HEAD premiered and available, and spring just starting to kick in I'm taking a internet vacation…
No bloggin', no Facebookin', no Amazonin', and so on and on…  
I'm gonna prep for a wedding, drink coffee, make puppets, write some scripts, and pet my cats...

See ya in a month or so!



And thanks to everyone who came out to see HEAD this past weekend.  I feel blessed.  We made a goofy horror movie and you all came to see it, bought DVDs and got a kick out of it.  

And to everyone who worked on the flick - Rick, Russ, Mike, Gabe, Manda, Keith, Sally, Steph, Nick, Theresa, Finberg, Pat, Jim, Joe, Brian, and of course Ben! - 
Without you cats the past year of Elmwood would have been even more stressful.  Hahaha!  We made it happen guys, we made HEAD…  It's been brewing for 5 years.  And now, just after the fifth anniversary of the first draft of the script we've screened it and it's out there in the world.
Can't wait to see what we cook up next.

Elmwood premiered HEAD and we sold out!  Yay!!!!
Now I'm going to sleep for a few extra hours!
Hope everyone liked the flick who saw it!

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!
