Jack-O-Melon 2012!

     Okay, so I bought a buncha fountains again and crammed them into my Jack-O-Melon for this year’s festivities.  I did one with six fountains going off sequentially and another attempting to have all six fountains go off simultaneously.  One lasts a little longer than the other but in the end I couldn’t decide which one I liked better so here’s both of them for your viewing pleasure:

     Here’s last year’s video if you like to compare and contrast all the subtleties and nuances.  Hope you had a good 4th!


(I know I know, I’ll get this ding-dang blog back in shape here soon.  I’ve hit a few snags lately.  Bear with me.)

Jack-O-Melon 2011!

     Since both 4th of July and Halloween are my two favorite holidays, this year I decided to combine the two by carving me a watermelon and jamming some fireworks in it, like so:

     Now before you say, “Oh no, mister! That was a PUMPKIN!”, watch it one more time and pay special attention to the beginning when I’m lighting it. After the fuse is lit and I move away you can see the brief flash of watermelon green as my flashlight passes over the front of the jack-o-melon.  That brilliant Halloween orange is all from the fireworks, baby!  That was two small fountains called “Tequila Sunrise”.  I’m gonna buy 50 of them next year : >

     Anyway, I hope your 4th was pretty dang awesome and thanks for stopping by, you crazy kids!

pumpkin guts, beer and shadowzone

     Booyah!  It’s Hallowfuckingween!  This makes my 31st Halloween-specific post this month containing original artwork by yours truly and I couldn’t be more tickled with myself!

      What I have for you today is the result of my latest pumpkin carving efforts and a little amateur video.  From the makers of Flickering In The Dark, comes a new short film:

The players:

Jack “I Love My Job” O’Lantern

     I apologize for the embarrassing names but my brain is a bit fried from having to work Saturday, two beers, way too much Chinese delivery and my first viewing of the Full Moon classic, Shadowzone.  Not a bad flick, by the way.  Some pretty decent sci-fi, horror action plus boobies and wang.

     Well, my hands still smell like pumpkin guts and I’m awfully greasy from a day’s work so I’m going to go stagger into the shower.  Thanks so much for stopping by and have an amazing Halloween.

flickering in the dark

     As promised yesterday, here’s the video. Nothing too exciting, just some nice, soothing flickering:

     The roaring sound in the background is the air purifier in the living room.  I just let the camera sit there and tried to draw out the jack-o-lantern’s very soul!  Sorta like one of those Andy Warhol living portrait films where he persuaded people to just sit in front of the camera and do whatever they wanted.
