September 6, 2016 2:46 pm Your quality music selections rarely surprise me. A KISS track off of Hot in the Shade managed to do just that. Well done.

February 16, 2016 3:53 pm My school had the 1-2 punch of the carnation delivery AND a computerized questionnaire that matched you with your true love. I consistently got matched with the made-up students that people put in there with fake answers.
October 20, 2015 1:57 pm Totally caught that Colon blow reference, Josh. (oddly, because my cousin was the freelance writer that wrote that commercial)
August 6, 2015 3:59 pm I was lucky enough to have a professor (University of Florida 95- 99) who took a regular English Lit class and turned it into a dissection of sequential art. He was the official biographer for Carl Barks (Scrooge MCDuck artist /writer) and would send our papers and dissections to Barks for review. My final project in that class was a Scott McCloud "Understanding Comics" style dissection of various Carl Barks Stories. One of the classes I never missed.

June 3, 2014 3:08 pm I am a cg artist / professor at a media college, and I think my deciding factor on movie quality is if nothing pulls me out of the movie. Things like characters acting out of character to push the plot along, bad CG, huge plot points being based on coincidence, too many dream sequences, or boring sections that don't keep my attention add up to lessen my enjoyment of a movie. As for closely following source material, I love changes but also like Easter eggs for fans of the source material. I always think back to many years ago when I used to read TMNT comics (the kid versions) and I could sit in front of the cartoon and see exactly the same story word for word on the screen. It was like having subtitles appearing well before the characters say the things on screen and it ruining the flow of the film. Even at 11 years old, I was like why do I need to spend money on the same thing twice.
January 21, 2014 4:24 pm Jim, you should get commission for the Marvel Unlimited subscription you convinced me to buy. Marvel, make it happen. Until then, enjoy your percentage of my amazon/ifanboy purchase of $6 worth of Curious George birthday party invites.
October 17, 2013 2:23 pm On letters from Phish fans. "I'm going to get letters, but they're not going to finish them" YES. My coworkers now think I am insane due to my bursting out in laughter while staring at a computer screen that contained nothing funny.
April 23, 2013 2:40 pm She is really professional and great to work with. I commissioned some stuff from her too. Sent the reference pics to her email and had some really cute watercolor pieces in a few hours.
