Thank You!


So last Friday was a big day, made a lot of new friends and met some great people and I owe a lot of that success and shout out to a great person...Alex of Alex J. Cavanaugh. Okay there are many of you who come here regularly and that is awesome, but on Friday Alex let me come to his place and do what I do best... talk about myself. I got to brag about my "New T-Shirt Designs" did you get one, talk about the Howlin' Wolf and great composer friend Edwin? Wink!


Today is Monday and it's my wife's birthday so... we are going to be celebrating, mostly me making it a spa day for her, like every day. Though today I will be extra special, so in the immortal words of Bill and Ted... "Be Excellent". I will be away for a few days working on getting that full time gig... that will fuel up the fire. See you soon.

Girl in a BATHTUB... Awaits You! Say it with a SMILE!


So lots of cool and interesting things going on today, funny thing is that they are not happening here... nope. So I got a great interview with composer "Edwin Wendler", which is you should enjoy... well you better, I try to bring new faces to the world. Second the label I work for "Howlin' Wolf Records" just released it's 14th release "In The Name Of Sherlock Holmes", this is a great piece of music from another great artist "RĂ³bert Gulya"... and a special direction for the label.


And last I have been working with great friend Alex J. Cavanaugh for a few weeks on some projects... also I am guest hosting there today to tell you a little more about it. So the truth is nothing is happening here, it's all at the other sites... so click a link and you will be magically transported...


I got you here with the teaser post header, now I want you... need you to click away!  It's great to have good news for a change... now go! Click Now!

Now I also want you to come back and report your findings... it's okay you have all weekend!!

Favorite Bro Codes for YOU?


So the question is what is your favorite "Guy" or "Girl" code you lived by... or a friend made you part of?

30) A Bro doesn't comparison shop.

31) When on the prowl, a Bro hits on the hottest chick first because you just never know.

32) A Bro doesn't allow another Bro to get married until he's at least thirty.

33) When in a public restroom, a Bro (1) stares straight ahead when using the urinal; (2) makes the obligatory comment, "What is this, a chicks' restroom?" if there are more than two dudes waiting to pee; and (3) attempts to basketball toss his used paper towel into the trash can like a basketball...rebounding is optional.

34) Bros cannot make eye-contact during a Devil's Three-way.

35) A Bro never rents a chick flick.

36) DD: When questioned in the company of women, a Bro always decries fake breasts.

37) A Bro is under no obligation to open a door for anyone. If women insist on having their own professional basketball league, then they can open their own doors. Honestly they're not that heavy.

38) Even in a fight to the death a Bro never punches another Bro in the groin.

39) When a Bro gets a chicks number, he waits at least ninety-six hours before calling her. The reason is Bro-flation. An unreasonable increase in female expectations about how bros should act. You call a woman the next day, she tells her friends that you called the next day, and soon enough, women everywhere will expect guys to call them the next day. Before you know it, bros the world over will find themselves trapped in relationships and all because you couldn’t wait 96 little hours.

40) Should a Bro become stricken with engagement, his Bros shall stage an intervention and attempt to heal him. This is more commonly known as "a bachelor party." 
 
Big day on Friday... and I am glad it is almost here, as I make it closer and closer. Step... by step...
Why is it that girls don't like the Three Stooges? 
When was the last time you heard "The Curly Shuffle"?

What the WORLD needs now is LOVE!


So what did you think about the ALIEN BLOG-HOP? I am so entertained that there are so many choices and so many great picks... How would you shoot your alien, if you could have a photo shoot with your favorite.. what would it wear?





It's not always about being a pretty face... it's working it.... big news coming at the end of the week, well it's pretty big for me.

Can you tell me what Bradley Cooper is shooting for?

'My Favorite Martian' Bloghop and Me!


'My Favorite Martian' Bloghop brought to you by the GEEK TWINS where we share our favorite and so I thought about it for some time and went with my first thought... I give you all "MUTANT" from the 1955 classic science fiction film "THIS ISLAND EARTH"...


About the film: Dr. Cal Meacham, a noted scientist, receives an unusual substitute for electronic condensers that he ordered. Instead, he receives instructions and parts to build a complex communication device called an interocitor. Although neither Meacham nor his assistant Joe Wilson have heard of the device, they immediately begin construction. When finished, a mysterious man named Exeter appears on the interocitor's screen and tells Meacham he has passed the test. His ability to build the interocitor demonstrates that he is gifted enough to be part of Exeter's special research project.


I know it looks like a upside down ball-sack...  well maybe you didn't see it that way, oh well now you do. Please stop over and visit the others, see who they have chosen to be their favorites. Thank you... "THE GEEK TWINS"

Scream and SHOUT OUT!





This is the point that I try to promote something... this time it is me... I do this every so often, this year will be no different. I got some sad news, that I cannot share... it is a real tear jerking blow to some of my dear friends... which I cannot express my sadness to them. My heart and love is sent, may the gods shine bright in these dark times and you can punch the wall that is in front of you.


I am sorry wanted to share that, which has nothing to do with my reason for the post. I am trying to raise your awareness to the things I have to offer you all in the world of blogging.

Everything I can do for you and your blog/site:

Banners*
Headers*
Backgrounds*
Badges*
Book/ebook Covers

Want something animated, slideshow [video] or a t-shirt… well then look no further!

I have been around for five years blogging and designing things for many of you and I wanted to open it up to a larger audience. You will get my attention, I will listen to your wants and needs… you dream it, I build it. Corny yes, but I am one who cares how you look… It’s time to be different, so be different!


So for what I can do and the very.. reasonable prices I have, it's like hiring your own personal designer. If you look around you can see some of the things I have done, it speaks for itself...

It's all about BOOBS!




Grabber title, of course I mean that I am in my nerdy-toy-sharing-mood... I shot these when I got my new camera a few years back. I have always wanted to take all of my toys and shoot them on one big table with a white backdrop. I don't think my brain would allow me too make it happen [damn dominoes I am sure], do you like my child/teen/adult toys... want more?

Leslie Easterbrook - Days of the Dead [Interview]


Some of you have found this on Friday,  but I wanted to share this with you... The lovely and talented... Leslie Easterbrook and I. Over at the "Howlin' Wolf" I had the great pleasure of interviewing her and as I have said... a pleasure. Please stop over read it, leave a comment... I told her that there were many fans of hers and I would prove it... [Click Here].


You don't want me to be called a liar?

What is WORSE than a MONKEY on your Back?


Yikes!! [Image from unknown source on web]

So I promise no more DAYS OF THE DEAD stuff, well at least the people I tried to contact for an interview... those people are still being revealed as I get them in. Stop back on Monday for one of those that I have been holding onto until the last of the crazy new year ends. Here is the always lovely "P.J. Soles" from Halloween, Stripes and Rock N Roll High School... Followed by Nivek Ogre from Repo! The Genetic Opera and band SKINNY PUPPY.



Have a glorious weekend... may the sun be bright. TOTALLY!!

So These are MY toys... Can you name them?


I figured out my problem in the new year with posting, there is nothing really happening in movies, just bad news. I find it very difficult to get the jump on these post as I find myself doing a lot of helpful designing... cause it just helps me get out of the winter blues. So I thought I would bring the best kind of blues and share you up some of my toys.


I was to have a child someday, but that ship has sailed, so I meant to give my kid these toys from my past... I managed to keep all of them. Got this idea from good friend Alex, who referenced Battlestar Galactica in his post on Wednesday. I was a kid who saved up like 20 cereal box tops to get a "VIPER" cardboard dashboard, I played with it for weeks.


Does anyone remember that toy offer from late 70's early 80's? I know you all are saying there is no photos of it and a bunch of GI: Joes/Cobra... if you can help on this VIPER please do?

Just Because... Gemma Arterton

GeMMMMa
 If you know me, then you know I have been working on a few friends sites and cannot breakaway from the cyber-madness...

Slang: Ballambangjang. The Straits of BaUambangjang, though unnoticed by geographers, are frequently mentioned in sailors' yarns as being so nanrow.and the rocks on each side so crowded with trees inhabited by monkeys, that the ship's yards cannot be squared, on account of the monkeys' tails getting jammed into, and choking up, the brace blocks (Hotten).

So For Me... COUGARTOWN is... Funny!




It moved from ABC to TBS... with this make it any better, I think the name is the biggest problem... cause these cougars are to much like weirdos... I liked the show Scrubs and some of the characters crossed over nicely. As I am a fan of the group called "THE BLANKS", you might remember I had got the chance to design their last "CD" cover and interview them for my other "WOLF" site. I thought I would just like to toot my own horn on that, it was a great adventure and opened a door/friendship to them.



Yes, I made a whole post about CougarTown... Bazinga!

More Crap About 2013... Good Crap! Part: One

COMMANDO SEQUEL?
There are so many great [hopefully] films coming in 2013 I thought I would share some of my highlights and I am not even going to flinch, review or budge on them.

All Superheroes Must Die
Friday, January 4, 2013


Four superheroes awaken in a seemingly abandoned town, stripped of their powers and at the mercy of their sinister arch-nemesis who forces them into a series of brutal challenges where the stakes include the lives of the innocent, as well as their own.

Crawlspace
Friday, January 4, 2013 


Follows a squad of elite soldiers sent to infiltrate and extract the lead science team from Pine Gap, Australia's top secret underground military compound, after it comes under attack from unknown forces.

Guillermo del Toro Presents: Mama
Friday, January 18, 2013


A supernatural thriller that tells the haunting tale of two little girls who disappeared into the woods the day that their parents were killed. When they are rescued years later and begin a new life, they find that someone or something still wants to come tuck them in at night.

Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters
Friday, January 25, 2013


Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters takes place 15 years after the siblings' incident at the gingerbread house. The two are now specialized bounty hunters looking to put down the cackling black-hat set.

Will I get to see all these in the show, most likely not... many will fall off the grid before you can say "Neo, comeback from the MATRIX". [Only a few will get that joke/pun].

Where... Do We... Go From Here?


Getting all my ducks in a row for the last couple of days... backing up, doing some designs and thinking about 2013. I know I need a job, what kind of a job will have me... this is year four without a steady place. Mostly freelance and the good heart'd donation I get once in awhile. I have joined forces with Howlin' Wolf Records and things could not be better... it's the family I would love to work full time. 


I have added a few sponsors/contributors to my in the last week, I am thrilled to death... tell you more as I know more. Many great coming interviews and the last of the photos from the conventions I was fortunately able to go to like "DAYS OF THE DEAD"... and upcoming ones too. Last my great friends here is cyberspace, those who keep encouraging me to keep moving forward... look behind noticing the bad stuff as something learned.


So looking back, never look back you are all too good for that... I think I asked before "Where Do We Go?" So let us welcome in the 3013 with open arms, so where the journey takes us... please for goodness sake, go forward. I hope to bring some SHOUT OUTS to those friends, this year... there are great people out there and you should know them [maybe you do all ready].
