Expression, Fifty-Eight Days Down (Half-Way Absent)

I must have eaten six or seven of these with lays crunched in the middle.

Spotting the musical is so much better with my best friend there (see below)!

After school we went to Campos and this lady said I was the only "normal" one amidst the rest of my friends who were shouting off inappropriate things in front of her daughters.

Jada Pinkett Smith was filming her movie "The Human Contract" near my house. I was so excited to be so close to all the filmmakingness. I was getting really gittery and Ben had to hold me back. He wouldn't be so gittery because his father is a producer and he's been on sets numerous time. I couldn't get enough on seeing all the crew there working and doing what (I would hope) they loved! Cause if they didn't I would love being in their place! Today would mark the first day I have been so near a set "on location" since I began my love for film.

Another great video from Matthew Metoyer, creator of the amazing titles video for "And He Gets The Girl" (see both his videos below)

Here is his latest that he titles "Expression"
You can definitely see a lot of videocopilot influence stuff in this video. I think he even uses some of the new Evolution stuff.

Here is the first video he posted based on "And He Gets The Girl"

Lupe expresses himself with The Cool

Oh yes, if anyone was wonder this is the way Whoopi and I would distribute the comic online as an alternative to just plain images. The way Heroes does it is cool but I think they lack with sound effects . I think we would take their concept and expand on it. Possibly even do voice overs if we can.

Things You Learn from the Movies, Fifty-Seven Days Down

It's finally out. I've been reading the online comics since last season but now it's available for purchase at a book store near you (hint, hint wonderful X-Mas gift isn't it?)

I think he likes his gift.

I'm underway with writing the comic book script for Whoopi vs SilentBat: The Fall of Ashten

We had Panda for food at the musical tech rehearsal

This shirt below is amazing! IT will be too small for any of you to read, thus, I will mark it out for you through numbers in photoshop and my description below (I put stars next to my favorites):

1. Even when driving down a perfectly straight road, it is necessary to turn the steering wheel back and forth.

2. It's easy for anyone to land a plane, providing there is someone in the control tower to talk you down.

3. If a tapping sound or flashing light represents Morse code, there is always someone near that can decipher the message.

4. One of a pair of identical twins is sinister.

*5. There is an amazing view of the Eiffel Tower from every window in Paris.*

6. During all crime investigations, it is necessary to visit a strip club at least once.

7. Good guys never run out of ammunition or have to reload.

8. TV News bulletins contain a story that affects you personally at that precise moment.

*9. When you turn out the lights, everything in your room will be completely visible, but slightly blue.*

10. Bombs always have a big, blinking, beeping, timer displays.

11. When chased to a staircase, always run upstairs rather than down.

12. Any lock can be picked with a credit card or a paper clip.

13. If being chased through town, you can take cover in a passing St. Patrick's Day parade any time of the year.

*14. A man will show no pain taking the most horrific beating, but will wince when a woman cleans his wounds.*

15. There is always a parking place directly in front of the building you are visiting.

16. Dogs always knows who's bad, and bark at them.

17. Cars never start the first time when you're running away from a bad guy.

*18. Explosions in space make noise.*

*19. A police detective can only solve a case after he has been suspended from duty.*

20. You can travel for days and never have to use the bathroom

**21. You're likely to survive any battle in any war unless you show someone a picture of your sweetheart back home.**

I don't think we'll have problem with lightening Whoopi vs SilentBat II at night in three weeks.

As I waited for my father.

I discovered my camera can shoot in widescreen!

So I tested it out!
Love it!

OSX Leopard?, Fifty-Six Days Down

CLARIFICATION: Lillian and I are friends! (Really good awesome friends, but friends no less. Unlike the folks below). People's comments on my last blog may very well be misleading and I know there are bunches more people who read this blog who don't comment on it so ... just to sort things straight ... onto today's blog!

This banana I had this morning was extremely curved. Definite phallic symbol.

I totally got OSX Leopard. But it seems to have effed up my computer and I'm not sure how to get the disk out because the computer won't turn on now. Sad face.

So they are official. I think they most definitely rushed into it but that's just one man's (this man's) opinion. Oh and by the way, do not tell them I posted these pictures on my blog because they actually specifically asked me I not post these anywhere (or at least Alan did, Candace didn't mind) but I totally am.

The stalker has been spotted!

Left alone?

Course not! He's back for more already!

So big update on some Whoopi vs. SilentBat. Whoopi and I are in the very early stages of making a comic book/graphic novel for the series. It will take place starting from a year before the events in Whoopi vs. SilentBat up until the very moments before Whoopi vs. SilentBat II and all the places in between. I've noted out the whole script (see below) and now am working the official comic strip which actually has a specific structure, believe it or not (see below to see the guide I'm using). Once the scripts done Whoopi and I will ask around for some artist help to do the pencils and general drawings. I will be doing inking and color (or just coloring, it depends) and we'll have someone else do the pencils for the comic and another artist do the cover title. Very exciting. Very exciting.

In other Whoopi vs. SilentBat news we haven't practice in a very long time so Sunday will be our first full day practice which I think we'll help a lot. I actually think we'll be able to choreograph the whole thing at least generically but not developed. We also still need to work on some line memorization for some of our acting scenes but we'll be cool. I also need to work on a schedule for all the flash back scenes and gather a large crowd of my friends and peers to be extras in the movie for said scenes. I also need to notify Doug Burch (look at the Whoopi vs. SilentBat credits to find out who he is) to see if he's still good to go! The score is at a stand still for not but I don't think we need to worry about that just yet. So all is good with that.

This is the comic guide I use. Have been using it for a good 7 years now I would say (since I turned 10 years old). It was a b-day gift and a mighty useful one I should say. I've always had some use to refer back to it.

Lily-Ann-Twone Day Parte Dos

I got up super early...

And took the 484. Downtown L.A. is deserted at 7:00.

Pretty, ain't she?


En Route: Chinese Market

It got hot. So we took off some of our clothes.

Before "This Christmas"

"Is that good?" said the lady as Antoine left to buy dip n' dots. Lillian, bewildered looked around to her. She was taken aback that she would speak to her so quickly after Antoine left.

"Y-yes," she shuddered as she thought, "Where's Antoine?"

She's total magic.

En route: Her house.
