XO, Deadpool, Stop Motion, Dreams

I got a third draft of XO #10 done.  I figure I should go ahead & write them when I can & hope Melissa can catch up with drawing after she wins the lottery.

Talking to Nick Marino about changing our stickman Deadpool fan comic into something with our own characters instead as he says Deadpool’s popularity is waning.  So I’m not sure exactly what is going to happen with that.

I got out this month’s email newsletter.  I think I’m losing subscribers faster than I’m gaining them these days as people change email addresses without updating things.

Working on stop motion animation stuff & it’s going a lot slower than I anticipated.  A minute of footage took me about 3 hours to make & I kinda ran out of things I want to do in the video with over 2 minutes of song to go.  It’ll probably still be a couple of weeks before I get it finished.  Here’s the first few seconds.

Last Night’s Dreams:
I’m at some store & the person I’m with is trying to get me to ask out the checkout clerk & I say “That girl’s a child, she’s probably 17 years old.”

When things were bad I’d wander through the city at night.  Waiting for my body to get exhausted enough to collapse.  I’d sleep wherever was convenient.  A park bench, under a bridge, wherever.  I’d wake up either from the sun or the cold.  The dew having settled on me in my sleep.  It made the world real.  Let me know how good my life was.  How luxuriously I lived; sleeping indoors, some place warm.  All of my problems are reserved for the privileged.  My problems were all ones I had personally sought out.  & now here I am a dozen years later.  & it’s starting to get cold outside.  & I’m losing weight.  I just want to sleep outside & let nature take its course.  Let my body go cold.

    good job on the video. the look of it is cool. maybe make the guy move too in the next two minutes you have to fill. ps out of an hour of video i usually wind up with something around 5-8 minutes. so good luck on the rest of that.

  2. There’s another 30 seconds from last night of the paper doll moving around & fighting giant bugs. There’s five versions of the doll in different positions.

    Guess what, I had some trouble getting the lighting to be how I liked. & what I did to accentuate the feel of stop motion when there was essentially no motion was using some slowburn christmas tree lights as off camera accent lights to cause some lighting variation. Oh, & the background is a Silvertone guitar case.
