The Cow Bell Tolls For Thee

oh130123I do a decent Christopher Walken impression (along with half of the planet).  Some day I’ll screw up the courage and post a video.  Not today.  Today I have more important things to do:

1. Check Odd Squad Goodreads.com reviews

2. Check Odd Squad Amazon ranking

3. Search Google for Odd Squad mentions

4. Think about writing week of Hedge

5. Repeat.

Feline Future News #2: Lebron James’ Neck Beard/Kanye West’s Twitter Feud

Behold FFN News #2.  Produced by me and the fine folks at Ralph Smyth Entertainment.  My role is mainly to stay out their way.  Which I do quite well.

I think this episode is a big improvement over #1.  The kittens were so much more cooperative this time.  We gave in to their demands for private liter boxes and hemp yarn.

If you like it, please share.   Far and wide.

But mostly wide.

How To Make a Balloon Descending Coronary Artery

As usual, I forgot we posted the blog address in the strip today to prompt everyone to learn how to make your own balloon animals.  I’m sorry to report I couldn’t find anything on making balloon animals, but I did find this fascinating video on how to make a balloon descending coronary artery (i.e. frog).

The One Where We Rip Off David After Dentist

Over the Hedge

David After Dentist is an amazing piece of cinema verite.  As a parent, I can remember many amazing “kids say the darndest things” moments.  I just didn’t have a video camera at the time.   And if I did, would I film it?  And if I filmed it, would I post it on YouTube?

I don’t think I would.

As funny and charming as DAD is, I think it’s exploitive.  They’re running an ad before the video, so someone’s making money off it. Maybe they’re giving it all to charity.  I don’t know.   But think of David.   That video has 80 million views.  For the rest of his life, he’ll be the goofy, spaced out kid who said, “Is this going to last forever?”

No, I don’t think I would have posted it.

Would you?

The Road to Losertown

Vodpod videos no longer available.

This is a video I did for my friend Jeff Barton who ran and lost for Hays County Judge here in Texas.   It’s one of those things that seems like a great idea until you’re up at 3 in morning for days on end trying to get it done.  I kid.

Sort of.

It’s very inside baseball.  So here’s some backstory bullet points for those of you not fortunate enough to follow the internecine affairs of Hays Country politics

Jeff comes from a politically progressive family.

His dad is a former State Representative.

His mom is a Jungian psychologist.

His son just got back from a semester abroad in Argentina.

His daughter pole vaults.

During the campaign a smear was floated by the opposition that Jeff was estranged from his sister.

Jeff does not have a sister.

Jeff was fired as editor of the Baylor Lariat in 1980 when Playboy came to shoot nude photos of coeds.

Jeff isn’t a furry.  But then again, how well do we really know our friends.

Jeff ran for Country Commissioner against the reincarnation of Edith Hamilton.   Really.

Jeff was defeated this November along with every opposed Democrat (new or incumbent) in Hays County due to Republican straight party voting.

Jeff’s campaign slogan was:  Building Bridges.

Jeff’s a great guy with a great family and I’m honored to be his friend.

And yes, I owe Jeff money.

Live Nude Baptists

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Here’s another short film I did for Babelgum in which I recount my student cartooning days at Baylor University and the time when Playboy came to shoot Girls of the Southwest Conference.

Playboy coming to Baylor was big news for the student newspaper The Lariat where my friends and I all worked. We became embroiled in a test of wills over whether a student newspaper at a private college had the right to editorialize that adult women should be able to do adult things.  It doesn’t.

Scholarships were yanked and we were told we would be happier elsewhere.  Those of us not graduating packed up and headed to Austin and the University of Texas where we were hailed as conquering heroes.

For about a day and a half.

It was a important lesson in real politics at a young age.  Baylor never cared about Playboy or bare breasted Baptists.  By shutting down The Lariat and encouraging publicity from Newsweek to The Washington Post, they were sending a loud and clear message to Baptist fundamentalists who were threatening to take over the Board of Regents.   The message was, “See, we have a handle on this place. We can get medieval on these sorry heathen student journalist asses. So, no need to worry about this place becoming Sodom and Gomorrah on the Brazos.”

For me, the whole thing was a clear sign from God that I become a cartoonist.  And I always listen to God.  Especially when he speaks to me through Lisa Welch, Miss September 1980.  Her turn-ons include: sexy men, fireplaces, sunny days at the beach and cartoonist.*

*Lisa didn’t actually write that. But I could see it her eyes — eyes that looked directly and only at me.

Another Film by Me: No Experience Necessary

I had to shoot, direct, edit and produce this myself.  Mostly because I couldn’t figure out who I had to fuck to get off this picture.
