Scott Alan and his wife Guinn are coming down from Seattle this week, and that will pretty much sum up my vacation this year. That said, I’ll be posting about what we did, so you’re not getting off that easy. Scott has a side business as a professional clown, was the president of Cartoonists Northwest […]


Time for a photo tour! We went to the Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween party last Sunday. If you recall my post about Project Flamingo, you will remember that my office is not having their usual affair, and that left me with a costume and a paper flamingo that needed a place to go. That […]

What mends a broken heart? Probably not what I spent today doing, but I wanted to get this project finished.

I finally finished moving my entire Blog into the new WordPress format. I didn’t realize until I went back through all of these posts that my first post was in November 2003. Back then I was starting a blog on the animation industry. I was pretty young and naive in those days, and I was […]


Last night I went to see the new David Zucker movie, An American Carol. I heard Michael Medved‘s review Friday afternoon and I already knew it was going to be uneven, and it was. I should have expected that anyway, as the Naked Gun movies began spiraling into parts II and III the jokes were […]
