This is the website for Dan and Jim's movie MISFIT HEIGHTS. There is no trailer yet, but you can see some photos of the amazing puppets and filming process. Some favorites are Tiny, the shots of puppeteering, and Zoltar's Map of Domination. Even if you don't know Dan and Jim you should check it out because it's going to be awesome.

So I went ahead and graduated. Then this happens.

I feel you, W. It's a sad day for the country. My flag is at half mast.

Hi everyone.

If you are a CalArts School of Theater alum or student then you should go to the CalArts Mafia page. You probably already know what the Calarts Mafia is, but in case you don't It's the network of students and alum from the theater school that work all around the country. We're a powerful force and now we are connected. Looking for help? Looking for a gig? Looking to move somewhere and want to connect with other Calartians in that area? Then become a member of the CalArts Mafia online.

Apr. 25th, 2008 @ 11:00 pm A Grilled Charlie has peanut butter LAST!
For those of you who don't know, the subject line is a quote from It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. If you don't know what that is you should stop reading this and go find out what I'm talking about. It's hilarious and really clever.

In this episode Frank is trying to make a Grilled Charlie while Charlie tries to walk him through the proper steps.

The quote is,

"A Grilled Charlie has peanut butter LAST!
Peanut butter outside, chocolate inside. Butter inside, cheese outside!"

If you are like me you are wondering exactly how the hell that works. What the hell, Charlie? What are you putting in your body? Gross.

Well, I've found the recipe for those of you bold enough to try it.

Using the quote exactly for a 'sandwich blueprint' if you will, would look as follows: Cheese -> Bread -> Butter -> Chocolate -> Bread -> Peanut Butter. To properly make a grilled Charlie:

1) Butter one side of a piece of bread to hell and back. Put the bread butter-side down on a frying pan which has also been endowed with copious amounts of butter.
2) While frying, place cheese (1 slice) on the bread. as the cheese melts flip the bread and fry the cheese (NOTE: take care as to not let the cheese stick to the pan…Should not be a problem if the correct (and absurdly disgusting) amount of butter is applied). Remove bread from pan.
3) Making sure there is still plenty of butter in pan, place second piece of bread in pan. While frying, add decidedly more than a drizzle of chocolate syrup (Hershey's) to the top of bread and proceed to flip. Quickly (as to avoid burning) fry chocolate. Remove from pan.
4) Construct sandwich by placing bread together, cheese on the outside, and butter and chocolate on the inside. Spread thin layer of peanut butter on the previously unadorned side. Enjoy.

(the poster of the recipe has) made and consumed a grilled charlie, and let me tell you, if made according to Mr. Kelley's description, it is quite delicious, although, (he) felt extremely dirty while and after eating, so exercise extreme caution

A real update
1.) I moved. I'm now living in Jim, Tara, Alexa, and Lyssa's apartment. It's pretty cool. Jim will be leaving soon to make his movie, so I'll take over his room when that happens. Now I'm living in the living room. Appropriate and slightly reminiscent of my first apartment out here with dan.

2) I moved because Dan proposed to Becca and they got their own place.

3.) I have a full time job working at a theater manager / audio tech at USC. So far so good. I've been there for almost 3 weeks.

4.) In those 3 weeks I've already been assigned a sound design for one of their shows. I'm getting a stipend on top of my hourly rate and it's fun.

5.) I graduate in a few weeks. Then I'll be a Sound Master. Take that, fuckers!

6.) I already have 2 sound designs lined up for the summer with a third pending.

7.) I got Logic 8 recently and I've gotten a chance to play with it. It's awesome! I dig it.

8.) MIDI is a kind of digital signal that allows different pieces of hardware to talk to one another. It has 5 pins in it, but only uses 3. The standard distance that MIDI can run without a MIDI amplifier is 50'. My friend DAVE made a MIDI to XLR cable that allows you to fire MIDI codes down the much more reliable, shielded cable much further. All you do is connect the 3 functional MIDI wires in the cable to the 3 XLR wires. Today I built one of my own and successfully sent a signal 600' before I stopped because that's more than what I need. But now I'm curious how far XLR can send it.

9.) I've stripped the vocals out of 4 songs for the show I'm designing, each one requiring a different solution. It's a fun exercise.

10.) I wrote another story for The Keyhole Opera. It's an interview with a Luck Slinger. I like it. It explains the reasoning for knocking on wood.

Mar. 9th, 2008 @ 08:50 pm Another Call to Friends
Okay everyone,

I'm putting another call out for artwork for The Keyhole Opera. I would like to request that the artwork is kept vague, as I do not like it when the illustrations dictate to the reader how to visualize the story. No faces, use general iconography or however you go about cooking up your imagery.

You can go HERE to download a free copy of it to peruse. The stories that I need artwork for are as follows:

Elizabeth Twinkle Toes; a charming story about a girl daydreaming with her brother.

Eloises Saturday Morning; a look at a typical saturday, playing chess in the park.

Lillian's Delight; A little girl who is learning the definition of Delight.

The Beekeeper; a poem about the harbinger of all things magic.

Megan's Mandolin; a poem about a young thief who uses a magical mandolin to lull her victims to sleep before she filches from them.

The Ballad of Mayor Reynolds and Reverend Morgan; a poem about betrayal and revenge.

The Chimney Sweep; a man with a broken heart searches for salvation.

Crowded Andy; a man in the city has a necklace that prevents him from changing into a werewolf, but the longer he holds back the more furious he becomes. Can he get out of the city in time?

The Coward; an epic poem that validates the necessity of violence in certain situations.

So, everyone, please. Message me or call me or just download the stories and draw, color, paint, photograph, or whatever it is you do and send it to me.

Please. Thank you.
