Superted

I just realised how gay Superted was. I mean he lived with Spotty and the skeleton made vanity smurf seem like a tough guy.

I still love the show and wonder what the magic word was........ Anal probably.

Clerks 2 and KEVIN SMITH in Conversation

Clerks_II.jpg

I was lucky to get a free ticket for the Aussie premiere of Clerks 2 at the State Theatre. What was even better was having Kevin Smith do 3 hrs of Q&A after the film with the fans.

This was hosted by Popcorn Taxi which put on some great shows. They sell out really fast so I was lucky to get a ticket how I did. Thanks Julian!

The film itself was pretty funny and contained a few pretty crude scenes that the fans will get off on. Talk off ass to mouth, a donkey sex scene, debates over Star Wars Vs LOTR and cameos from a few famous faces.

The best part for me was hearing Kevin Smith talk and I'm not even a huge fan. The guy knew how to work an audience, which was all ultra geek, fan boys, but he was polite, funny and quick. He also gave really good answers to every question. It was almost like a standup routine with questions form the audience. I’d pay just to here him speak again.

I now have to rent the original Clerks as I hardly remember it.

I give Clerks 2: 7.5 /10 and recommend anyone who likes a crude comedy to check it out.

Walk down the wrong street in Spud City and you'll get mashed.

The effect I was hoping for didn't turn out that good. This has to do with my bad lighting.

New & Improved Mr.P!


New & Improved Mr.P!, View my Flickr stream here.

I went back and revised my Mr.P. The first one looked nothing like him when I checked reference photos (never do this stuff from memory). I'm pretty happy with this one and now I'll have to buy another Mr.Potatoe head so I can continue with my other mashups. As I don't want to dismantle the little guy.

New from Hasbro. It's Mr.P

With realistic voice chip with such sayings as

"I peel the fool"

"i aint getting in no pan fool!"

Deadwood pancakes

This Deadwood video cracks me up. It's that mix of swearing and edwardian like dialog that gets me. Half the time I have the subtitles on when I watch the show.

Xbox 360 games

There's 2 games for Xbox 360 which are looking pretty awesome.

deadrising.jpg
Dead Rising which makes Zombie games fun again (just kill everything) and

gearsofwar.jpg

Gears of War which looks like Ghost Recon with more firepower.

Both look liek great titles and with no revolutionary gameplay but a new twist on classic gaming.

Deadwood Cocksuckers 1

I love the show so much I've edited out all the words except "cocksuckers" and made a mini episode. ALl video taken form just 3 episodes!! So you can see how much swearing there is in the show. I will have to do another couple of videos to get all the "cocksuckers" done.

It's quite fun editing video I just wish Youtibe didn't throw the audio out of sync.

Red Zero Launches

red_zero_bb.jpg

After many months of development we (Soap Creative) just launched Red Zero for Pacific Magazines.

The initial brief for a "virtual magazine" many mionths ago stipulated they wanted the "page turn: effect. After pushing back on the client I thought we had won this battle.

Then as months pass the client kept asking for the page turn effect and we finally relented. Luckily Mike was able to decode the infamous code to allow uis to do all the dynamic stuff we needed for this magazine. And also make sure it played back at a decent speed. Flash 8 saved the day for Mike by allow pages to be cached as bitmaps and reduce load times considerably.

it was a huge learning experience for the designers of the magazine. We designed the framework of the magazine but the spreads and everything else was Pac Magazines.

We had many meetings with their designers to show them the possibility of the web and that you don’t have to lay everything out on the page. Issue 2 of Red Zero will be a lot tighter I feel as the designers now have a pretty good grasp of what’s possible.

I had little to do with this project after the initial functionality spec and think it's turned out pretty good.

There's a few spreads in there that look a little rushed but we had little control over this. Hopefully issue 2 will utilise online more by allowing more video, interviews, music streaming and other stuff like that rather than just trying to replicate the feel of a traditional magaizne.

Ideal

180px-Ideal_cartoon_head.jpg

I've been watching some DVD rips of Ideal, a new sitcome form BBC3 starring comedian Johnny Vegas.

It took a little getting used to but the showis quite original and funny. It took me a whole season to realise Ideal means "I deal" drugs. The show is about a small time hash dealer living in a low end suburb. It wont appea to everyone though.

I also watched a few episodes of Green Wing a BBC4 production but couldnt get into it. It just felt like it was trying too hard. I can see the appeal but just fell flat for me.

(Can't You) Trip Like I Do

Here's my first attempt at a filmed music video. I realise now that you need to shoot about 10 scenes to make a video interetsing as the 2 I shot for this makes for a pretty boring video. It's one of my fav tracks from when I was studying Crastal Method's "Trip Like I Do" from the Spawn Soundtrack. I havent even seen the movie!

I'm happy with how it turned out though and once I et a real editing program (IMovie is pretty limited) then I can really start to stretch my directors muscle.

I'm going to do a whole series of videos with these toys.
