IPOD TO: Missy Elliott - Under Construction
WEB TO: Domino Topple!

So Jimmy Gass and I came up with an idea for a movie today. I won't elaborate on it, but I can admit to you it's genius! It has car chases in it! Perhaps i've said too much. But wait until you see it before you judge. I predict this will be a really, really fun project. It has no working title yet.

Busy as all get out at work. Several cool projects in-house. I mean COOL projects that of course, I can't talk about until they're officially released. They are in the style of Area-51. You'll likie.

A relocation of residence is about to occur for Kungfukoi. ( read; Kim and I ). We're moving to Oak Cliff, into a dream house. I'll post more on that as it occurs. But wait until you see this house.

IPOD TO: Madvillain - Madvillainy
WEB TO: Rex Steele - Nazi Smasher!

It is becoming more and more apparent to me that you make your own destiny. It may sound silly with a hint of cliche', but it's true. I think that when all things are observed, the correct path, or path of the best outcome, becomes obvious. It might seem like common sense, but it never seizes to amaze me how much of the population is oblivious to this fact. Many will even try to resist, and fight you as you forge ahead. The best defense is to power up, stay grounded, cycle your chi, and find time to recharge. In the end, a well grounded assault on destiny will defeat the weak paper tigers of the resistance. Positive visualization is real. I think it's humanity's connection to the universe. That's all I got on that.

IPOD TO: Fu Manchu - California Crossing
WEB TO: Ong Bak Trailer

Went and saw Ong Bak last night. If you are into Martial Art Movies... then you have got to see Ong Bak. The star Tony Jaa, is going to be the next Jacki Chan or Bruce Lee.
In other news, i broke down and update the site one more time. Lots of things in links, and the misc section is now back open. A little classier now. I hope to get some time this weekend to sit down with Invasion. but being that it is "Valentine's" weekend, I am not hopeful. I have a couple of AWESOME projects going on that I cannot talk about yet. So keep checking back.. I anticipate a big press release for one of projects in the next few weeks.

IPOD TO: Judgement Night
WEB TO: All SuperBowl Commercials

This last weekend has been interesting. I went out to the DAMN SHORT FILM FEST and gave a seminar on "Short Film Animation". This was the first year for the fest, and had an impressive turnout! The seminar went great I was told! I got to meet lots of great Filmmakers and watch a host of suprisingly impressive shorts! Both animated and Live action! I had a blast, and look forward to returning where we'll be able to spend more time sight seeing... and VEGAS!!

I'm hoping to update the site here soon with some new content. I need to go ahead and remove the AWN link, since it's from 1998! I think whoever was in charge of that has died off, or lost interest. I also want to post some new Future Girl animation. I've been reworking her, and can't wait to show off the new stuff.

IPOD TO: Upgrade to 4.7.1
WEB TO: Good Omens

So, that dinner to Outback I keep talking about... It was awesome. I'm not really impressed with the food in general. It's good don't get me wrong, but it's not worth all the hype I think my friends are into. Either way, it was a fun time among friends. Well, it turned out that the friends who invited us ( my wife and I ) to go to dinner, also invited Mike Knapp who was also in town. Mike Knapp is an illustrator, and is currently a creative at Blue Sky Studios. He has just finished up "Robots" and is moving on to Ice Age 2. He's a great guy, and an even better artists. Check out his stuff in the new "Art of Robots" book. I sure love to talk about Animation and Storytelling, and guess what, so does Mike. So we talked show for 4 hours! It was a treat! In the same weekend I got to chat with Jason Taylor, who is an animator at Blur, who just recently found out "Gopher Broke" was nominated for an Oscar! Congrats to Jason, and everyone at Blur.
