Introducing Dan Deacon

I saw Dan Deacon perform last night. It was so much fun. Here's a taste of him.
Different? yes. Weird? yes. Energetic? Yes. Fun? yes. Sweaty? yes. Colorful? yes. Enjoy.....

"Dan! Can I get a photo of us??...It's me, Captainyolk!"

A side note about the banana ipod.
He hates using the Ipod. When pausing and then playing, the music slowly fades into the song....instead of just playing instantly and loud. This pisses him off....but the show must go on.

Here we have our family dog. Corky is a 15 year old Cocker Spaniel who has arthritis in his joints. He was attacked yesteday by a dog the size of a bear. Seriously, have any of you ever seen an Akita? My sister was walking him (on the opposite side of the street)when the bear attacked (crossing the street). I had to pull the beast off of him by the scruff of his neck while my sister sat in the grass screaming. I could barely budge him. The owner came quickly and we both got him off. Sad thing is, the Akita had no collar or leash on, he had broken out of it as he lunged after his next meal. Corky now has 2 deep bites on either side of his neck. A little note to all of you Akita owners: Use some common sense next time your 7 year old kid wants to walk a dog that weighs 3 times their weight. People are insane and idiots.

Corky is doing all right now. He's on some meds and is finally wagging his tail.
Here's a page I drew up while waiting at the Vet's office.

Surf's up is fantastic!

I really didn't think this movie was going to be anything special. Boy did they prove me wrong.
Go see it! It has heart! Yes it's true it really does! Great characters, great writing, and the main character is likeable. It has caricatured animation. Stretch and squash! The characters have weight! You feel like they could really be injured! Funny gags that aren't cliche. Great designs! And most importantly, each character is well thought out and HAS A BACK STORY! Which in turn makes the acting outstanding!

My hats off to you Sony animation crew.....and to Jeff Ranjo, head of story. Damn Jeff, you got me choked up in some scenes. You are my hero. I will see this again in the doubt.

Well this is interesting. This is from an interview with Jeff Bridges and Shia LaBeouf...the 2 main voices in the film .

"This film was different than other animated movies in that you were given the opportunity to actually be with the other actors while recording your voice. How did that process work?

Jeff Bridges: “It was in a room about the quarter the size of the stage and they had video cameras set up. We’d all play together and they’d video us. There was lots of improvisation.”

Shia LaBeouf: “They’d set up mics at different locations. We’d move across the room and there’d be a mic set up over there and Jeff would be in the middle of something. I’d be walking from there to here and there’d be a mic set up here and we’d block it just like a play.”

This guys goooood!!
