Frivolous post about some very classy cupcakes I made last night.

In between editing footage in Premiere (ol' school, bitches!), I whipped up these (hopefully) delicious Sour Cream and Fig cupcakes with Cream Cheese frosting.

They're filled with fig jam, shhhh!

Bang bang, shoot shoot...

Last weekend I got to flex my puppet muscles. Literally. I was sore till Tuesday.

(You may think Richard is hiding from the camera, really it's the imminent shards of glass)

Richard O'Connor at Asterisk Animation was kind, gracious and all around just plain awesome enough to lend us some space for most of the day Sunday. He also single-handedly played the role of cameraman and lighting. Like I said, just plain awesome and I don't think I'll ever be able to fully thank him for it.

(Dear me, Dave! That Opossum's as big as your head!)

Dave Cowles flew in from Rochester, NY for the shoot and managed to snag an award or two at the ASIFA Screenings later that evening. A Sunday well spent, I'd say.

(Johnny's most demanding scene)

It's safe to say the whole day wouldn't have been half as fun without the presence of Johnny(A). Playing the role of gopher/puppeteer/comedian, he kept the pace going and the mood up.

And I guess I should also thank Dunkin' Donuts for the copious amounts sugar we consumed throughout the day. You can buy a lot with 30.00.

(Paint-roller and Mogubgub)

Next comes the tedious task of keying... UGH.

Animal House

Shoot this weekend for the long awaited They Might Be Giants video. It's been a long time coming.

Means this week was filled not only by my new full-time position as Flash extraordinaire at LBi, but also with about 4-5 hours each night making last minute mouths...

Painting rods bright green...

Keeping them out of cat's reach...

And wrapping their 'handles' with duct-tape for extra grip.

Look at him, getting into trouble!

Hit and Run

I was greeted by this sad sight on my walk home today.

With our music video shoot less than a week away and an overwhelming sensation I'm forgetting something REALLY important, I certainly can sympathize with this poor fellow.
