I thought I’d let anyone who reads or accidently stumbles upon my blog that I’ve started a new one on Tumblr.


The title of today’s post is in honor of Neil Gaiman’s new two parter Batman story Whatever Happened to the Caped Crusader. It’s awesome and you should all check it out. Don’t worry if you didn’t understand all the recent Grant Morrison stuff. This has nothing to do with that.

Be sure to check out my new site for all the same funny stories, videos, and general rambling that I’ve done here. I update it every day (just like here).

Thanks to blogger for getting me started. In the future I may post here on occasion, but in general everyday stuff will be on the new site.

Thanks for visiting!


Schools out, and in honor of the beginning of a long break from independent original thought I’ve found an awesome clip. It’s 40 inspiration speeches from various movies mashed into a two minutes and 15 seconds. via Overthingkingit.com


Since Wednesday is probably going to have me pulling my hair out while trying to finish every possible assignment I’ll post early. Here’s a cool video I saw a long time ago on Digg, then preceded to forget about. Now It’s on Youtube.

Here it is, give yourself a pat on the back if you can successfully follow the video and explain it in detail to someone else.

Imagining the 10th Dimension:

In lieu of back posting my way through the months of October and November I’ve elected to skip over them in video game fashion. Don’t you remember when you learned about the Super Mario Brothers cheat that allowed you to skip to the final boss while only completing a fraction of the levels? I’m sure the programmers were happy that all those levels in between were deemed throwaways. What’s a thousand man hours anyway?

Just to recap the last couple of months:

October highlights: The major highlight of October was the Threadbanger Handcrafted Halloween party downtown (NYC). We all had a blast and some lucky winners even won some prizes. Plus we had Indy Mogul Steve and a great metal band play.

Lowlights: The killing of the original Burlesque party the Threadbanger wanted to throw. KIA by the powers that be.

November Highlights: Cousin Wendy’s Bat Mitzvah’s and Turkey Day of course. I’ve got the whole thing chronicled on flickr.

December: At a glance, classes will end this week (for one) and next week for the other. I’m currently on track to finish all my work for the end of the first class, so I’m free of one class after Thursday (this is me cheering).

After next week it’ll be smooth sailing and regular every-day work till Christmas. I’m not making an special gift plans as I’ve already gifted myself a ton of toys this year.

Looks like Ben and Rusty set up quite an election party with Amber. Obviously the big day is November 4th. While most are given to rampant speculation, I currently am of the opinion that this horse race won’t even be close. Do I even need to say it?

So come party with us and ring in the new administration.

Tickets are $15.

Our own Jeaux Janovsky has recently been asked to submit a custom Barack Obama doll for a Toy Tokyo art show called Art + Action=Obama. Here’s the bulletin:

ART + ACTION = OBAMA 08, presented by Jailbreak Toys, is coming up on October 17th in New York City. ART + ACTION is an exhibition of custom Obama Action Figures by contemporary artists, graf writers, and toymakers. Visionary pieces by Mars-1 and Jason Alberto Garcia, edgy versions by Damion Silver and David Choong Lee, as well as completely reconstructed custom toys by Brin Berliner, kaNO, and so many more will line the walls of The Showroom NYC at Toy Tokyo. Ron English will be there signing his Abraham Obama posters. There will also be signed Obama posters for sale by legendary Obey-creator, Shepherd Fairey.

Brooklyn-based funk archivalists Truth And Soul will heat the place up with fat, juicy grooves. Singha Beer will cool the place down with Thai-style pilsner. This event will be fresh, funky, thought-provoking, inspirational and one-of-a-kind. Be there.

On a lighter note Erik recently finished his bigfoot feet for his most recent project. He clomped around the office to show them off.

Lots of Barely Political videos going on now that the election is looming. I’ll be sure to post pictures as the videos are released. Here’s some of the latest.
