Well damn, where do I start?

I’ve been pretty busy lately, and it seems that the amount of work I have is inversely correlated with the amount of posts I put up here. But what can I do? Now that the winter break is officially upon us, I’m starting to miss all of the work I had. Wait a minute…no I don’t. I have been able to do a lot of the things I wanted to do though. For example, I recently released a new movie that Neon Penguin made. It turned out much better than I thought it would, but, as always, there are things I would like to fix.

While we’re on the topic of movies, I just want to say that the Sci-Fi channel has the best movies. Ever. Personal favorites include Raptor and Centipede!. Seriously though, these movies are so bad I wonder how they ever got released. And they were made in 2001 even! I think I felt nauseous while watching the horrible acting, blatant continuity problems, and just down right retardedness. They do offer a good laugh though and are good time wasters when you’re up at 2 in the morning with your crippled sister. Anyway, moving on…

The only problem I can find with the holiday season is the ridiculous amount of money that I end up spending. I’m pretty sure I don’t mean to but I do anyway. I don’t mind it as much as I probably would if I was already dead broke. I don’t know. It’s a bit annoying how expensive everything is these days. But hey, gas prices went down so I can’t complain that much.

The sis is back in town, and it seems she brought everything else with her. I can’t wait till I can build a fort from her old boxes when she leaves again. We’ll see how that turns out but I’m guessing that it will be able to withstand everything except maybe a nuclear warhead. I’ll take pictures and post them as soon as possible. Also, since the sis is crippled at the moment I have discovered how fun crutches really are. I’m sure the novelty of them wear off once you are actually a cripple but they’re still fun to me. They hurt your armpits though, I wonder how real cripples do it. They must have really strong armpits.

I’ll probably have a bit more to say after Christmas, that is, I’ll have things to brag…er…I mean review.

Happy Holidays everyone.

There have been rumors of a new, terrifying super villain. One the world has never seen before. No one knows where he, or it, came from. All we know is that we’re totally, completely screwed.

Sorta.

World, meet the Ego Destroyer. For the past week of so, my friend Reid and I have been working on this mini-musical type movie tirelessly just to submit it into the Evil League of Evil contest. Awesomely enough, we got it in just in time. Seriously, we were only 10 minutes early in sending it in. Talk about getting down to the wire. Anyway, the movie is about the super villain Ego Destroyer. Like his name implies, he destroys egos. Are you scared? You should be.

This was Neon Penguin’s, Reid and I’s production group’s, first musical. I think it turned out pretty well. I definitely learned a lot from making it. For example, make sure to compare the footage to the song during filming so you don’t spend hours slowing or speeding up video so it will sync up. I had to do this several times, and once it was so bad that we had to refilm a scene. Though, in the end, it turned out really well. There are obviously things I want to improve on (ie. get rid of background noise), but for a first, it turned out great. Also, this was the first movie made with my new Sony HDR-SR11 camera. Can you say sexay?

The video can be viewed on youtube or on facebook. But, for your convenience, I put it at the bottom of this post. You’re welcome. If you want the Ego Destroyer theme song for when you’re working out or something, then you’ll have to e-mail me about it. I’m not charging for it, obviously, I just can’t find a good place to put downloadable music. Any suggestions?

Enjoy. Also, please, please, please tell me what you think.
