Disneyland 1959 8mm Movies

So while I was home for the holidays, my parents got some of their old 8mm movies transferred to dvd. They had some really neat Disneyland movies circa 1959, and I just had to share them! This was the first year the Matterhorn, Monorail, and Submarine Voyage was open. Keep an eye out for the Rainbow Caverns, Keel Boat, Captain Hook's Ship, and some other great rides that have long since gone.

Dinosaur Choco Eggs!

Oh man, these are my new favorite things ever! They are Dinosaur Choco Eggs by a company called Futura. I found them in a little Japanese Market. They are chocolate eggs, and when you crack them open, you get a toy dinosaur inside!! They're anywhere from 1-2 inches tall, and the quality is incredible. Plus the chocolate is pretty tasty too ;-)

Coolest Thing Ever!!

To anyone with an extra $2,000 lying around, here is what I want for Christmas:

Monday, November 10, 2008


So I swore up and down that I would never sign up for Twitter. Mostly because of this comic. But, I finally succumbed to the peer pressure last week and signed up. I must admit, it is rather fun, and a great way to keep in contact with friends and co-workers. It's really great for sharing links and I view it as essentially an instant messenger crossed with status updates ala Facebook. So in short, it's not so bad, but it is highly addicting. You can see my latest update by visiting my Twitter homepage. Good times!!

No Ticket.

So today I finally was able to put together the scene from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade that I've been wanting to make since I first saw the movie.

Indy and Henry in the German motorcycle!

Lego Ferrari F-40

Here is a custom Lego Ferrari F-40 I made a few weeks back. I had a very limited number of parts, but I think it turned out fairly well! Click through to see more pictures!

Mickey's Follies

In honor of All Hallow's Eve, I present perhaps the scariest and oddest bit of animation of Mickey Mouse, which is found in the short "Mickey's Follies" (1929)

You can thank me for the nightmares later.

Who So Serious?

Why So (Yahoo) Serious?

A funny poster I made staring "Young Einstein" star Yahoo Serious, based off the Batman Dark Knight Why So Serious Joker posters.

The Mask

So today I headed over to my local Fry's Electronics, because I heard they were having a sale on some Blu Ray movies. I hate going to Fry's. The parking is always a mess, and the actual store is a dump. But hey, I couldn't pass up Mrs. Doubtfire on Blu Ray for $14.99.

But his post isn't about Mrs. Doubtfire, it's about The Mask. Not the movie with Cher and the weird looking kid... but the one with Jim Carrey. Fry's was actually playing it on one of their demo TV's. Why? I don't know! Anyway, the bug was planted, so I had to pick it up on DVD. I used to love this movie when I was a kid, and I even had a cassette of the soundtrack! I haven't seen it since the days of VHS, and I wanted, nay, needed to see it again. Mostly out of curiosity I suppose. Was it still good? How does the 14 year old CGI look?

So? How was it you ask? Surprisingly good. It holds up really well still, and CG still looked decent. A heck of a lot better than those monkeys in Jumanji at least. I was also surprised on some of the adult jokes I never caught. In one scene, the Mask is making balloon animals, and when he reaches into his jacket to pull out a balloon, he pulls out a used condom. I kid you not.

I highly recommend watching it again, especially if you used to like it back in the day. And heck, for $7.99 on DVD, you can't go wrong. I'll leave you with this:

My New Car!!!

I've been wanting to buy a new car for a very long while. Sure, my truck is great, but it's strictly utilitarian. It comes in handy, but it's not what you would consider "fun." So a few years back, I started slowing saving my money in hopes to get something more..... sporty.

A year or two pass, and I finally decide on getting a new Mustang Convertible. Fast forward another year or so, and I finally have enough for a healthy down payment! Over the 4th of July weekend, Ford was having some insane incentives. The time was right!

It's a 2008 Ford Mustang GT California Special convertible! 300hp, 18" wheels, two tones interior, Shaker 500 audio system, and a slew of other sweet options.

I'm stoked, to say the least!

Friday, June 20, 2008 Re-Design!

Hey everyone! So, I've decided to re-design my page yet again. It's been quite a while since I've updated it, so I think it's time for a new look. I'm trying to incorporate the use of both Flash and html seamlessly, in order to get the best of both worlds. I also have a cool feature where the home page reads the feed from this very blog and shows the latest 2 entries automatically. Right now, only the home page and resume page are working. Let me know what you think!!

Check out my re-design here!

Take care!

Star Tours

I recently found a video of Star Tours (the Disneyland ride in Tomorrowland), taken directly from the source on the ol' intertubes. It had timecodes, and the sound was not too great, so I went ahead and made it true widescreen, added the doors opening and closing, and synced it to a new, better soundtrack. Check it out!

Mighty Muggs He-Man

Hey everyone. I've just discovered this really cool new line of collectibles called Mighty Muggs! They're super stylized vinyls from a number of iconic movies, such as Star Wars, Indiana Jones, and even the Marvel Comics universe! Since they all use the same body, they'd lend themselves really well for customizing. I thought it'd be cool to design a He-Man and a Skeletor in the Mighty Muggs style. Here's what I've come up with so far. I've just been messing around in Flash working strictly with lines, so everything is vector. Perhaps when I get some free time, I can actually make these for real! Let me know what you think!

I just got back from a 2 week tour from Italy! It was amazing! I'll try to do a more in-depth post later, but until then, check out my pictures!

New Camera = New Pictures

Panorama of my Room

I just got myself a new camera! It's a Canon PowerShot G9, and it's crazy neat. I was fooling around taking pictures and started playing with it's panorama mode. You can take a picture, then it'll use that previous picture as a guide while you take the next picture to help you line them up. I then used the Photomerge option in Photoshop and it automatically merged all my pictures together. Pretty rad, eh!?

Here's some more pictures:

New Design!

Hey everyone! So I decided to create a new design for my blog. I was never really satisfied with the old design. I was trying to go for an old-timey-steam-punky look with it, and it just didn't turn out right.

So now, I decided to go with a more art-deco style rather than steam-punk. What do you all think? I'm pretty satisfied, and I had a great time coming up with the logo! I hope you like it as much as I do.

I'll try to update here more often, and maybe this new design will help to be my catalyst!

And remember, don't forget to pick up the new Boston Balcony Clappers cd, in stores now!!

Zombie Goasts Leave This Place!

This is my new favorite video! It's an actual fan-fic written by 9 year old.
