Coming pretty late in the day, here is the Visual Thing A Week for Jonanthan Coulton's song, I'm Your Moon. Jonathan's description of the song makes note that Pluto's moon Charon, is actually about half the size of Pluto, and that they revolve around each other. For artistic purposes, I decided to make Charon more of a motherly figure.
In other new, I just bought a new Mac Pro. Woo-hoo!
Mike AKA Halcyconsnow, one of the 700 hobo artists has immortalized me as a hobo. Words escape me. Thank you, Mike. Thank you all to hell.
"Pes, a gifted short-film maker, has produced a video-game tribute called "Game Over". He's recreated scenes from classic arcade games in stop-motion, using household objects and synching it all to the original game sound"Too cool!
This is for the song "You Ruined Everything" by JoCo. I think this is more of a personal image for me. I equated having children to leaving behind some of the other stuff I had enjoyed pre-kid. It's the same transformation that any parent has to go through. As my kids get older, I can start to enjoy some of the things I enjoyed as a kid and they can appreciate it more. Except for the Star Wars figures. Those are totally off limits.
JONATHAN COULTON WILL PLAY GUITAR NEXT TO A LOUD RIVERFor information, please visit Coulton or Lady Killigrew.
The Montague Bookmill/Lady Killigrew.
Sat., Aug. 19, 8 PM
Local author and impresario John Hodgman will soon leave the Pioneer Valley area after a summer of residency and internet-theft at the Lady Killigrew Cafe and the Montague Bookmill of Montague, MA.
But before he goes, he wishes to introduce the western counties to the song stylings of JONATHAN COULTON in a night of SONGS ABOUT ZOMBIES, MATH, AND FEELINGS.
JONATHAN COULTON, in addition to his masthead position of "Contributing Troubadour" at Popular Science magazine (absolutely true), is featured prominently on the audio edition of Hodgman's bestselling book THE AREAS OF MY EXPERTISE, and his many many songs (A NEW ONE EVERY WEEK!), including "Mandlebrot Set," "Re: Your Brains," and "Baby Got Back", have been heard on PODCASTS THROUGHOUT THE LAND.
Hodgman will introduce Coulton, and following the show, he will guest-bar tend at the Lady Killigrew while Coutlton will sit at the bar and guest-drink. EVEN IF YOU LOATHE BEAUTIFUL MUSIC, COME WATCH THIS STRANGE BIT OF THEATER DEVOLVE TO ITS INEVITABLE, TRAGIC CONCLUSION!
Both will sign books and CDs and discuss TOPICS OF INTEREST.
Three copies each of Hodgman's as-yet-unreleased PAPERBACK and AUDIO EDITION of his book will be given FREE to the first six people to purchase Coulton materials.
Maybe it's too much Dead Rising on the XBOX, or it's just my Monster Art pushed to a new level. But I just started a new Flickr group called "Zombie Army". In much the same way as the 700 Hoboes Project, I am encouraging artists of all skill levels to contribute images of zombies to the ever-growing Zombie Army. Pictured here is Catherine, The Zombie Gal, a homage to the female undead in WoW. Keep on the lookout for more zombies as I draw them. And please, feel free to contribute to the project.
This song was the reason I started doing the VTAW, and I never got a chance to draw it. So here it is. The song Re: Your Brains by Jonathan Coulton done for the upcoming karaoke CD. if you check my Flickr set, you will also see a badge I did of Bob the Zombie for a possible T-shirt design.
His pants are fancy. And the people love him. What can I say?
"Remember the feeling when you were in elementary school and you realized that today was the day the Scholastic books came in? The heightened anticipation of imminent MadLibs!Thank you to the blogger who loves our show enough to compare us to MadLibs. We love them too!
That’s the way I feel every time iTunes starts to download a new Jawbone Radio. Jawbone is that rare breed of “Couplecast” which is actually about a couple, not pandering to the lowest common demoninator."
"The Monster Engine Massive Multi-player Online Game (MMOG) is a place where kids rule and straight lines aren't welcome. Why? Because every last 3D piece of this world is built from actual kid's drawings."Totally rockin! Talking to Dave about this, the game is in very early developmental stages, but promises to be very cool. You can see the whole preview right here. If you scroll down about midway, you can see some of the preliminary artwork that my oldest boys helped create for the game. How cool is that? If I were 9 or 11 and I was helping develop a video game, I think my head would have exploded. So, we thank Dave for affording our kids the opportunity to contribute to such a unique project. Be sure to listen to Jawbone and watch the blog for updates as it moves forward.
