Evil Dead: The Musical!

I just got back from seeing the Off-Broadway musical version of Evil Dead, oddly enough called Evil Dead: The Musical. There were songs, dances, and lots and lots of blood. A friend of mine got us tickets in the Splatter Zone. I was front row but didn't want the free ponchos they were handing out so if you look to the left, you can see the horror that got all over me. I want to go back, in fact, I want to bring anyone to it who visits and says "Lets go to a Broadway play." You've been warned, future visitors.

Sorry Burke...I stole your point.

Here are some more pictures that I got today at work:

Happy Thanksgiving!

Although, I wasn't able to go home for Thanksgiving, my really good friend, Nick Gibbons, invited my cousin and I over to feast on the delicious fried bird of the holiday. Boy, was it good!

Before that, I went to the Macy's Day Parade Float-a-thon! It was rainy and cold...but you probably saw that...from the warm safety of your apartment/home. Still, it was pretty rad to finally see it.

Even BEFORE THAT, Nick and his wife and I went to the float infating thing. That too was really neat to see.

I hope everyone had a great Turkey Day and have a fun, safe Christmas! Be safe!

Big Apple ComicCon!

I went to the Big Apple ComicCon this Sunday and picked up a few things and took some pictures with some damn talented people. I was wandering around waiting for a friend to get there when I recognized the voice of Master Shake himself, Dana Snyder, lollygagging around, talking to another fan. I gotta admit I was a bit flustered when I approached him...maybe it was the lack of food and water or maybe because I think he's one of the funniest voice talents I've heard . One of those two. He's a really nice guy and I wish I could have talked with him further. Maybe for the NY ComicCon. And sure enough, I look like a dumbass when I take a picture with him.

Then I wandered down Artist Alley and bothered the insanely talented Khary Randolph while he was working on a sketch for a fan. He told me about a super secret project he was approached to design for, which I won't say here. Great guy and I hope he works on more projects...his work is so appealing!

So at the end of the Con, I made a "big" least for me. An original page from one of Jim Mahfood's Marvel comics. Next time, original Mignola work and definately Cory Walker art. This one is going in my home office...when I get a home office, that is.

And to the little tyke who lost (I'm assuming) her sock, my friend noticed it lying on the ground at Grand Central. We didn't take it...but we did steal its soul through the digital-soul-stealing-camera. If you go back now, you can probably still grab it...HURRY!!!

BSS Challenge: The Zombie Circus

Ok so it's a little messed up strip. I've decided that on top of the weekly BSS challenge themes, I'm going to layer my love for zombies into it. It was fun to do...quick and easy. Now if I could get the motivation to finish another Unlimited-Ammo.

A couple more Chax friends

Nestled atop my rarely used Nintendo least I used it something recently, right?

my new toy addiction

Nick Gibbons and I would occasionally have a little beverage adventure in the city and among our adventures, we would stop by Kid Robot and pick up some of his favorite dunnies. That dude LOVES his dunnies. He collects them. I never understood his undying devotion to those toys (though I've had my share of toy addiction...especially with Todd McFarlanes Movie Maniacs from years back) until I came across the Chax Colony series 1 and 2, also at Kid Robot. The one that got me hooked is the business man pinching the cheek of a smaller, more squirrely business man. This one...

Wow! How funny is that. Then there's one of a cute bear kneeing some passerby in the face. IN THE FACE!!! Luckily, I got that one on my second visit. The other ones are pretty dang cool too. Here are the ones I got on my second and third purchase. I had a dup of cupid rocket launching his love to the world so I gave it to my brother on his recent visit to NYC. So here are my new Chax Colony friends that will be forever displayed at my desk at work.

I have three other ones at work, so I'll take a snapshot of those and update this post.

BSS Challenge: Tinman

The competition this week was for The Wizard of Oz. Been getting inspiration from Calamity Jon.

Ya know...looking at it now, it looks more like the robotic Stay-Puft Marshmallowman. Dang...oh well...the next one'll look even better!

Flushed Away Audience Review!

Overall, I gave this audience an A+!

" A+" is probably what you're pondering to yourself. The reason for this is Nick and myself were practically the only ones in the theatre. There was a parent with her very well behaved kids a few rows in front of us. And because Nick is awesome, I gave the audience an A+...for Awesome plus.

The movie was way fun by the way...kinda slow the first 20 minutes but picks up after that. Lots of clever gags from 20 minutes in, to the end. Well done, Dreamworks Animators and Story team! (and Designers, Lighters, Modeling, Rigging, etc.)
