Rubber Scars returns

Anthony is bringing Rubber Scars back. The original podcast consisted of odd moments recounted by emotionless synthesized voices as though the speakers were unsettled by their memories, like robot radio theater of hypnogogic hallucinations. You probably missed it, which is too bad. The good news is, he's rebooting it in blog format. Check it here.

It Lives…

My Cartoonstitute™ storyboard pitch was today.

I stood before a Crush or Clobber or whatever the collective term for Development Executive is and pitched my short, The Sloppy Seconds, without once having to summon my mastery of jazz hands. I got a lot of laughs, which seemed to coincide with the jokes and gags in the board and not from my haircut or anything, so that was good.

The verdict? I got a solid Non-No, which means I haven't been cleared to go straight into production yet, but I also haven't been shut down. I've also apparently broken a short streak of flat-out "No's", so I'll take that as a positive.

Thanks to everyone who crossed their fingers for me and a special shout-out goes to the guy who sacrificed the chicken. I do appreciate it.
