Songs To Wear Pants To

Have you ever thought "Man I wish there was an acoustic remix of Super Mario Bros. or at least a song about wearing No Pants. But I am no songsmith...what can I do?" Well why not let Andrew over at do it for you. You can make free requests for short, 70 second songs, or pony up some cash for a much longer one.

Funny stuff...check it out...

Darth Vader Jackass

I don't know why, but the first time I watched this I couldn't stop giggling for a few minutes after. I think it is the "gaze" at the end that gets me.

Aimesworth Amusements

I am in to my second week at ReelFX and so far everything is going really well. I have blocked out several shots and even managed to get one approved; it is good to be animating again.

Some people have asked what I am working on but I am not at liberty to tell all. However I can say that it is a fun little project for TV which will hopefully be airing later this year, around the the time people buy gifts and decorate trees.

The future projects here at ReelFX look pretty exciting. Go here to check out the development slate.

To Boldly Inspire...

What can I say? This is just too damn funny. My good buddy and movie spoiler, Paul Allen sent this to me and I laughed and laughed and laughed.

And once I was done laughing...I laughed a little more. I think I found my new desktop background.

For more hilarity go here.

Keeping it Reel

This week I started my new job at ReelFX Creative Studios in Dallas. They have quite an impressive talent pool and I am super excited to be part of their feature team. Several folks from DNA have come over to ReelFX and it's great to see their smiling faces after going through some turbulent months. Once I bring over Pirate Cove , all will again be right in the world.

Being laid off was kind of a bummer. However I can honestly say I enjoyed my "extended" time off between gigs. Hanging out with my wife and Wonder-pea for three months was actually pretty great. There were times that I would even say "wow this is great...this must be what it's like to be independently wealthy..and to be able to do whatever you want every day!". Then the bills would arrive and I would remember that I wasn't independently wealthy. And then I'd throw up.

It was an experience to be sure. One I hope not to experience again until after I win the lottery.
