two things i found online or "why i love the internet’

okay, one of my favorite indie animators is a guy named pat smith. i was reading his blog today and i found links to two other great sites.

when i first learned flash, i wanted to make all these cool experimental interactive animated playthings. i never really followed through, because i am a dorkface, but thank goodness this guy did:

(that site ate up most of my evening!)

aaand, last time i visited my parents, my dad told me he thought that i was too critical on my blog movie reviews. of course, defensive, i said, 'no i'm not! it's important to be critical of things!' or something equally whiny. anyway, i've been thinking about that a lot lately. in fact, i haven't posted any movie reviews since.

so when i found this: i smiled. i was reminded at how important it is to critically analyse art and storytelling. (that post is a long read, but worth the investment)

i hope you all are having a happy monday. i might go see 'burn after reading' tonight. maybe i'll tell you how i liked it =)

art for sale?

hello again,
i'm going to be working with topher at the label over the next week or so to try and get some of my paintings online in the astonish store. i'm really excited to see how that goes.

in the meantime, i set up a little shop at to sell smaller stuff: block prints and small works on paper. if you get a chance, i'd love it if you dropped by and checked it out.

thank you linton!

we just got back from playing the linton music festival in indiana. woohoo, it was awesome!
we played there last year and had such a blast. we couldn't wait to play it again this year.
we got a chance to unveil two new songs, from our new album (coming out early next year).

we met some absolutely fantastic fans. i got a supercool gift from karl and meg:

thanks guys! and thanks all of linton. we're already excited about LMF 09.
