Moe Corn STFU

Apparently, Blogger doesn't allow animated GIFs. This image was changed into a PNG during upload. Oh, well ...
Thanks to Sara, Moe gets his corn cobbed along with other guests. Yeeowza!

Bohemian Inline Skating

I gotta do some shirts for Bohemian Skate School's Decatur Parks and Rec inline skating summer camp and I have no idea what color or anything to use. All I can picture is just black graphics on plain white tees ... that's no good, is it? *Uhg*

This is the full color logo from the Decatur, GA Website.

Here's the final graphic that was created for the city of Decatur's (Georgia) McKoy Skate Camp 2006. Superduper thanks go out to Graphic Designer Marie of Art Studio Five in Boca Raton, Florida for correctly identifying the typeface used. I was told everyone liked it and the city's park directors even asked where their shirts were! ¡ Woo-Hoo !

This version of the Bohemian Skate School logo went on the back of the T-shirts.

Hopes Dashed!

H.G. Wells' War Of The Worlds

I followed the little hype there was and eagerly anticipated the release of this movie. Pre-ordered the DVD when it was announced that this movie was going straight to disc. Whoa! I was stunned in disappointment.

I think I know what happened, though. When it was discovered that there were others simultaneously creating WOTW movies and all chance of getting a last minute budget infusion evaporated ... this DVD is what remains. A movie devoid of proper computer effects rendering and film editing. The footage wasn't edited into a theatrically distributable form. Out of a love of the original idea, nearly everything usable that was shot simply got added onto the disc. "Take 1, take 2, take 3 ..." they're all included ad nauseam.

Just a little more time, editing and (of course) money could have saved this thing from being the lamentable epic that it is. Embarrassing to watch, really ... I'm NOT kidding. Resurrection anyone? Peter Jackson?
