Podcast! Puppets! Winstons!


Hey hey! Many things have been happening. Things I can't talk about... for now... you will know soon though! For now, check out my very own podcast, called Precious Joke! This first episode is the start of a comedy podcast I am going to do on a semi - regular basis. It will be loads of fun! Just click on that ridiculous looking logo to your right. I encourage you to crank up those fatty speakers of yours for the full effect.

Just in case you don't know, a podcast is like a radio show you can download for free. The "Precious Joke" logo should take you into itunes, where you can download or "subscribe" to my podcast, which will automatically download a new episode when it becomes available. It's really fun, trust me.

Future Episodes will include...

• Dramatic reports "from the pit" of a Slayer concert from the viewpoint of a hardcore conservative evangelical journalist!
• Reenactments of hilarious letters to the editor of bondage magazines from the 40's!
• Interviews with funny people who are actually somewhat "real"! Guaranteed!
• Funny found audio collages and snippets!
• Immersive movie reviews! Experience the madness of ridiculous films first hand! Through audio!
• Oh so much more!


I'm looking forward to supplying you with fun humorous stuff.

In other news, I am working at Screen Novelties as a puppet fabricator, which is amazingly fun. Check out their reel on their site. Amazing cartoony stopmotion.

In not so great news, Effects master Stan Winston passed away on June 15th. He was an amazingly innovative man who led probably the best physical effects studio in the world. They are responsible for the creatures in films like Alien, Jurassic Park, Terminator and Predator to name just a few. Just wanted to give some respects to the Stan Winston legacy. And no, I'm not related... Here's an awesome picture from the book about his studio that I just read recently.


The object in this photo is a test mockup for the Alien in the movie... Alien. It is made from cardboard boxes and garbage bags and stuff like that. I love this photo because it shows that even with the most high - end special effects, you have to start simple to understand what you are doing and getting into. You can learn from even the simplest doo-dad.

Ok then, I hope that you enjoyed this long post. Check out the podcast!
