The Answer Is Yes...

 So the puppets for HEAD were built in a hurry...
We decided a little under two months of shooting to do the film with puppets.
I had ideas for the look of each character.
For example, I'e keep it no secret that the character of Bruce is intentionally designed to look like Ash from "Evil Dead".

But one puppet that never really got analyzed by anyone was Vicki.
Originally I wanted the puppet to be a cross between Velma from Scooby Do and Kim Basinger.
But that wasn't working.  
So three years after the flick is done two people recently asked if Vicki was intentionally designed to look like Francesca from "Mad Monster Party"
And she is!  Just a little less busty, hahaha...  
I didn't want her to look exactly like Francesca, just a little...  Like a long lost relative, or something.
 I'm a huge Rankin/Bass fan.  And love "Mad Monster Party".  
Wanted to throw a little tribute into HEAD.  I've been found out!  Hahahaha...

And don't forget to check out HEAD on VHX now!

B&W - Day 2

B&W - Day One

I got "challenged" on Facebook by my wife's cousin Kara to do this thing that's been floating around FB for a few weeks where you post a black and white photo with no humans in it.
Looks like this:
Seven days. 
Seven B&W photos of my life. 
No People. No explanation. Challenge someone new every day.
Day seven, photo seven 
Challenge: Jon Bristol
So...  I'm doing it.  But posting the pics here!
Here's the first one, but instead of challenging anyone, I'll leave it up to you if you want to do it!

Happy Halloween!

Evil Doll
Hand Puppet from "Christmas Wishes"

We had a lot of fun making this short...  Look for it soon!

Here's some making of pics..
 It started with a store bought doll, just cut opened and gutted! 
Then I pulled some of the armature wire it came with out and made a mouth and eyes.  Added some classic yarn hair, and a little weird dress!
And she's ready to kill!

Tomorrow Nite!

I don't know if they'll be able to top last summer's spectacle...  But I now it's gonna be good!

I write a lot about Prince on this blog...
Gn'R have a very special place in my life n' heart.  Someday I'll delve into more.
In the meantime I just wanna rock out.

Sunday AM...

I've said it before...
Some folks got to church on Sunday...
But I listen to Prince.
Coffee in hand, cat on lap.  So far a great day.

Sweet Dreams Mr. Petty

Thank you for being part of the soundtrack of my life...
I know somewhere, soon, my mom and brother will be enjoying a show among the wildflowers.
