Mr. Universe see's a bald head

I'm an outsider here... In the land of Normal

Remember when people used to confront their problems in life, and face them head on?  
And deal with them?  
Remember when people would find solutions to our problems and issues and conflicts?

Yeah, me too...  I still practice it the best I can in fact.  

But for all those others who don't want to...  It's a good thing modern medicine has "a pill for that"

Pull your pants up...  And pull yourself together.
And I'll get off my soap box now.

And now totally unrelated and just for your viewing pleasure...

WTF is "a case of the Mondays"????

What a good weekend...
Friday was a great birthday party for a great man...
Saturday I sat behind my computer writing the "Animal Behavior" movie, and we haven't even finished editing the show yet, hahahaha....  Filmed part of a short film...  Then just hanging with an old friend...  And a nite at home to myself,
And Sunday...  Hung out with my man Nick and then a nice mellow Sunday nite on the porch with the cats.

And now it's Monday Morning...  I don't have that "I Hate Monday" mentality.  Monday is just like the rest of the days for me.  A day to live.  A day to be.

And the coffee I'm drinking out of my grandfather's mug and "Lovesexy" from Prince playing on my stereo are a great way to get it started...

“There must be more to life than having everything” - M.S.

Someone mentioned to me that I didn't give Prince a birthday shout out last week on my blog or on Facebook...
Oops...  I post about his amazing music alot, so I figured I would just listen to "Parade" and enjoy the day...
But...  So I don't have the Gods of Paisley Park but the wraith on unfunky on me...
Happy Belated Birthday Prince...

And speaking of influences and birthdays...
Happy Birthday to the late great Maurice Sendak

 For anyone interested in the Connecticut area I'm starting the the puppet making class at Paris In Plantsville again NEXT WEDNESDAY from 6PM to 8PM (that's June 12!)... 
In a six week class we'll make two small Muppet style puppets (one a monster or animal and the other a humanoid) and get a little puppet training in too! It's 25.00 a class or a one time fee of 125.00 and it's a lot of fun! 
Materials are not included - email me if you're interested jon(at)elmwoodproductions(dot)com

So I've been taking stock of the puppets...  So many puppets...
Some of them aren't great ones; from when I was still learning, and many of them we'll never use...
Look for cheap old puppets by weeks end on my Etsy page ;)
And maybe even some new ones!

and for no reason whatsoever...  MIKE!

New GAMRZ!!!

Here is Episode 4!
