This is the last video my camera got to film before it broke.

A clown with a knife. What a fucking terrible way to go out, right? I bet he thought he would die at an old age, filming a sunset over a beach. Nope. Clown with a knife.

Not having a camera for like 4 days was agonizing. Having a ton of cool/crazy stuff going on just rubbed salt (and lemon juices from one of those little plastic lemons that is supposed to look just like a real lemon) in the wound. But, the saddest thing is I missed the opportunity to film something really really amazing when I had the camera (this was Saturday - it broke on Sunday). Are there any moments that you really regret not capturing? If so, check out this incredible site that collects essays from photographers, writing about the photographs not taken. My favorite is from Mark Steinmetz.

All this music is making me hungry.

I realized not too long ago that I hadn't really bothered to get any new music since moving to LA. Well, these last two weeks have definitely changed that. Now I'm siting on a fat stack of new stuff that'll last me weeks.

Here are three tracks that I've had for quite a while now but are still in the daily rotation. Maybe you'll like them too?

The Katt Williams Interlude (from Gangsta Grillz: The Album)

The Click - Hurricane

Clyde McPhatter - Mixed Up Cup

Happy Birthday Guys!

Anibal Rivera (not this one) came into his third period Global Studies class. He told his students that in Spring Quarter they would be welcoming two new foreign exchange students. They were twins from Australia. Their names were Adrian and Ashley. The boys in the class didn't respond with any jokes or snide comments like they always seemed to do. In fact, none of them said anything. It was because their minds were too busy, thinking of all the carnal things they could whisper in bed to both of the beautiful, blonde, Australians.

Spring came and just like Anibal had announced earlier in the year - so did the twins. Though the boys' fantasies about erotic pillow talk changed just as the seasons do. There were two reasons for this. One was because the Barbies they had spent an entire winter daydreaming about ended up being two small Chinese boys. The other reason was that the brothers who spent long enough in Australia to develop a thick accent - were simply too hard to understand.

Interview Man: Mr. Breeder, is this a full display of your acting chops?
Dog Q. Breeder: No, there is no karate in this film.
Interview Woman: D.Q. what is your new film like?
Dog Q. Breeder: It is a lot like "Window Water Baby Moving" sans the baby and more placenta.

I've been experimenting with editing a lot lately. These are two videos for two techniques I have been working on. One, is like spin art but with film - I'm still trying to figure out how to make it work (and I need to find a more cheery way of incorporating it in a narrative). The second is animation - I have been working on a cartoon with MS Paint for the last month, this experiment was to see if it would work.

So over the last few months I have been editing/adding stuff to Wikipedia (I have made almost 400 contributions). In my opinion it is the best site/database/resource on the internet. While the authenticity of Wikipedia is always in question - you just can't deny the plethora of amazing articles you can find there. Here are a couple of my recent favorites.

-List of TV series cancelled after one episode.
-List of self-contradicting words in English.
-The Big Rip.
-List of inventors killed by their own inventions.
-List of humorous units of measurement.
-List of jobs held by Homer Simpson.
-Ann Hodges.
-List of fictional computers.
-List of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles characters.
-Longest word in the English language.

However, none of these come close to the awesomeness of this next article.

-List of problems solved by MacGyver.

Where are you going to get facts like that? A dictionary? Pfff.
