I approve this message

I just came across this Brit-Tshirt company and it just so happens that I think they're pretty clever. The idea of printing up tshirts with movie titles, poster art, logos etc. is kind of tired to me. Of course I say this after having bought a totally sweet 16 Candles shirt which is essentially a print of the poster or as I learned the "one sheet" in industry speak. But I digress, these peeps are creating their own branded logo designs based on a movie. It's actually pretty cool and uber nerdy in most cases. I feel like these guys must be corporate graphic designers. The designs look very clean and also any of them could actually be used for corporate branding purposes.

Behold "Jack Burton. Me!":

I'll give whoever something if they can guess what movie without looking.

New toy

Today at my job they gave me a little gift because I've been there for like, ever. Anyway i got to pick out my own gift which is a pretty sweet deal beacuse it means you don't end up getting something horrible, like a gold plated watch. What did I pick? Awwwww yeahhh! I got me a Holga twin lens reflex camera. It's pretty fucking sweet! I can't wait to get down to business. Also on an up note I received my second shipment from my cheese of the month club. I'll be going into depth about that later but just so you know this time around I got a nice looking port salut, an English chedder, and a St. Andre triple creme. God dammit!

Wherever you go, there you are

Started me up another blog. Yep

So I started another blog solely for the purpose of establishing a sounding board for ideas for stories and screenplays and perhaps some kind of grand collaborative project. I figured peeps could leave me comments with notes, edits, ideas and perhaps even add their own words etc. I called it the Sea Monkey Book Club, for no good reason other than I don't think Sea Monkeys are given enough literary credit. Anyway I don't really plan to send out announments when I post something becasue that would be silly. But if peeps happen to stop by, and perhaps if they want to be added so that they can post too it as part of the above mentioned collaborative effort then by all means that's awesome. I'd really love to get a screen play, besides my A-Team homage, rolling. I have this idea for one that I started working on and now I can't find it on my laptop which means I'll have to start again. But in the meantime, I told Steph I'd start working on the "novel in a month" thing back in November. Yeah, I'm still working on that. I mostly do it when I'm on the train to and from my job where I work. Anyway. Have at it. SEA MONKEY BOOK CLUB
