Jes and I have been pretty busy this week.

We've gone to a gigantic bonfire where we had a chance to perform ancient Arabic prayers to God in the light of sparkling fire. It was such a spiritual moment. Bruce and Basira were the ones we went to visit, we ended up making alot of fun of the night. Bruce even recorded some live material of Autumn Shade's, and gave us a copy. It is some great stuff and we're hoping to get it ready for releasing soon.

Later in the week we visited Captain for preparation for today's film shoot. After that, we went down to riverside and walked on the beach. The sand was littered with all kinds of interesting rubbish, like car shocks and wheel bits and metal scraps. I loved it, it reminded me of Planet of the Apes. Down on the beach I found a rain pipe exit tunnel on top of some concrete. I went up and said "Hello!" The echo reverberated wonderfully. I asked Jes to come up and s…

I've been asked to testify...

...From the Video Game Voters Network.
I wanted to let you know about the Video Game Voters Network. It is a website that allows us to take action to prevent the government regulation of video game sales. Join the network today and testify to tell your story about why you oppose video game regulations.

Submit Your Virtual Testimony

For years, video game critics have spoken out against video games, which has contributed to the myriad of legislation in multiple states across the country. The time for gamers to stand up and speak out is now. In your own words, please share with us why video games need to remain free of government regulation.

From Derick Snow

Really the only new idea with videogames is the concept of interactivity. What that allows is to cease to be simply a passive 'take in' character, but it allows us to 'role play', something we have been doing ever since we put a towel around our shoulders and went flying around the house as a superhero.

I find it very sad…

Originally uploaded by studiosound. Kinda late in the day, I know, but I thought I should tell you fine folks that Autumn Shade and I are going to be making some fantastic music and art down at Shades of Brown (Peoria and around 32nd St)...We'll be kicking off around 8p.m.

We have a very special guest tonight, it's a surprise! Come on down and you can hear a nice bit of instrumentation, including hammer dulcimer and violin!

I'm also in the Drunkard this weekend as Frank. Haven't done that in a month or maybe longer, but I'll be having fun!

I've been tasked with creating the new promo cards, the image is from the back of the card. Ain't I a scamp?

I'm finding myself into lots of art creation and I'm really trying to get my feet into animation of all things! Very cool. I hope to learn alot.

Well, I've gotta run away yet again!

Hope to see you at Shades!

Originally uploaded by studiosound. Well, in the grand sceme of things, this weekend turned out pretty well.

I got to create a painting, we got to go camping, and we got to visit thy Rennaissance Faire for free...



Jes and I had free tickets for the Ren. Fair this weekend, so we wanted to make an adventure out of it. We packed up and attempted to go on Saturday, but the rains prevented us from really getting to enjoy the outside too much. So we made a little road trip out of it.



We travelled down to Gore Oklahoma and drove around the scenic green country area not too far from one of my childhood homes. In Gore, we found a rather patriotic place..USA Cafe? I forget. Ah! Old Glory Cafe. When I was a child, it once was called Pirate's Cove. Now it's Red White and Blue! It seemed like a fun place to eat, so we went in and had a HAMburger. But the kicker was the owner was an Australian! How ironic and funny! We talked for a good hour to the owner and his wife. Great plac…

My room is a pit

I’ve got to clean everything out and then paint it! Problem is, I’m not home all too often to I’ve let it get out of control. So I’ve got things moved around, but I’ve got wallpaper shreds on the floor and I feel crazy when I wake up in the morning.I’ve got to kick it in the pants! See more progress on: clean up my room

Peter Pan was such a huge success, we've extended it to one last Friday!



I am impressed with all of our friends coming down and supporting us. Brother Howard, Mom, Dad, Carol, Captain, Fae, Grandpa Joe, Papa, etc., ect., I thank you so much for catching us!



We got to go to a party after the show and I got some great pictures from the show. I've put some of my silly faces into one nice lookin' cluster!



Jes and I went to Arkansas for her work Sunday night and got to stay in a fancy hotel on thier dime. It was a really long day waiting for Jes to get out but I had a fun experience!



Once we got back I had to go and work at a bored meeting that lasted until after 10:30! Crikey! So I went to bed right after that.



At last, I've been drawing more and more, and I love the power of the pencil lately. Perhaps I'll get to paint tonight!
