Whats gourd for the goose...

Happy Halloween guys, it's time for the annual pumpkin update. As always mines on the left and Nancy's is on the right.

There's just something magical about plunging a large sharp knife into something, pulling out it's guts, then carving shapes onto it, without having to bleach the house and bury evidence.

That band from the 1990s LIVE is touring right now, so the radio keeps shoving their one song in my ear holes. The other morning while my ears were being force feed their sonic assualt entitled "Pain Lies by the Riverside", I made a dumb joke. I then felt compelled to take way to much time out of my day and conjure this joke into a tangible form. Please enjoy:

That's all I gots for you little ghouls and boils out there today, don't forget to wear reflective clothing and look out for razor blades in your apples.

Inappropriate day

I don't have a lot of time to write anything of any merrit so I'm just going to post a horribly inappropriate picture I drew for a fake animated show I want to not make. It's pretty self explanatory.

Happiest Puke on Earth

We just got back from Disney World and boy is my wallet tired. I want to send a big shout out and fist bump to my buddy Randy and his lady Brecken, who made the trip possible. Brecken worked at Disney over the summer and thus had the ability to get us all into the parks free for 3 days AND half off our hotel room. Without that amazing deal we would have had to take out a second mortgage just to buy lunch in the parks.

Our trip was framed by vomit. The night before we left Chewy threw up on the couch, and our last day in the parks we witnessed no less than 5 throw up related events. As we pulled into the parking lot of the Animal Kingdom park, and walked toward the entrance, there was a little Asian girl puking on the sidewalk. She hadn't even made it to the park yet. I'm was affraid her head might explode if she actually got inside. On our way to the first ride we had to avoid stepping in a large pile of vomit waiting to be saw dusted. At lunch a little girl was hurling all over her table. The small pieces of her breakfast that now stained the front of pink T-shirt that read "princess" detracted slightly from her cuteness. Later in the day we had to avoid slipping in yet another large puddle of regurgitated park food. Finally, after a long day of park hopping, we were walking the last stretch of road to our hotel room, when we heard a child behind us start coughing, followed by the unmistakable sound of a stomach angrily tossing it's contents onto the ground. It's a Small Hurl After All.

We had tons of fun and I can't wait to go back.

I started tinkering around with the intro to the show I'm pitching. I wanted to do an animated animatic, which is just a storyboard with very limited movement. I did the very first shot, and am waiting on artwork for the rest, but I was so excited I just threw some words up where the storyboard panels will go. It ain't much, but it makes me smile:

Wheels on my career go round and round

I have been working on a script or two for a show I want to pitch around. It's a great concept and wide open for some terrific parody of all your favorite 1980's toys and cartoons based on toys. I'm not going to tell ya too much, I just wanted to post the awesome picture my good buddy Todd Redner drew for me.

What I need is someone with clout to attach themselves to this project so I can get traction. I have no problem getting pitch meetings, but the industry is such that no matter how good your show might be, unless you have someone like Andy Dick attached, you won't get a second look.

So where my famous peeps? Lets get to show creatin'!

Here are the networks this show is good for, just in case you stumbled on this and you work for them,
Adult Swim
Spike
FX
SyFy
IFC
G4
Comedy Central
Mtv
and of course Lifetime for Women
