RIP Wolfmother

I am a member of the Wolfmother mailing list. Today I received an email that said:

"Grammy Award winning rock band Wolfmother has announced the resignation of bass/keyboard player Chris Ross and drummer Myles Heskett effective immediately.

Singer/guitarist Andrew Stockdale now plans to find other musicians over coming months and to then begin making a new Wolfmother album."

LAME! This new band will not be Wolfmother. Wolfmother is dead. I have to say I'm pretty bummed. I saw them twice in concert. I very much enjoyed their sound and style. Mike Wills was right about the sustainability of the band.

Now don't get me wrong. I'm not mad about Andrew starting a new band. I just think he needs to acknowledge that it is a new band. Maybe we could call it Wolfmother 2.0? But then would that insinuate that Chris and Myles were bugs that were removed?

As a final tribute to yet another one album wonder band here is a little revisit to a video from my past:

Blast From the Past III

This blast from the past is a memory from childhood instead of a picture of me. (Sorry if anyone was hoping for another mullet picture.) I was singing this in the shower this morning and wifey started laughing. Turns out that she watched Chip and Dale's Rescue Rangers too.

No Longer a Student

So today has been a pretty crappy day. Earlier this week I had an interview for a job as a Flash developer. The thought that I could get a good job writing ActionScript code was pretty cool considering I started doing it as a hobby.

So Wifey and I got our hopes up that I would get this job and all of our financial woes would be immediately solved. The great thing about getting your hopes up is that when they crash down in is truly a fantastic crash. (Please note sarcasm here.)

The ironic thing is that I had my hopes up about getting a job that I don't think I really wanted anyways. I wanted the experience I would gain. And I definitely wanted the money. But I would have been working for a marketing team for Microsoft. I would say that's not exactly fulfilling my dream to become a filmmaker.

So now I am unemployed and virtually broke. I am no longer a student either so I don't really have an excuse.

Also I would like to apologize for the lack of videos on this site. I do have some more videos to put up. So if anyone actually reads this post and leaves comments saying -- "Hey hoser hurry up and put your videos online!" I will do it faster. The end.

The Fairy Congress

So here's the story. Last week I recieved an email from one of my teachers at film school. He was requesting that someone edit some existing footage of an event called the Fairy Congress.

I responded and was chosen for the job. I was quite flattered by this. The pay wasn't anything worth speaking of, really just a token amount, but the experience and exposure would be good. The video needed to be done in one week so I ended up sacrificing the chance to edit one of my other projects to get this one done.

In fact I even went above and beyond in helping them upload the video to youTube and getting it ready to be embedded as a Flash movie. So I'm all ready for this video to be somewhat prominently displayed on the Fairy Congress website (a little exposure for the donation of my time). Instead they poorly display the video tucked away in the photos section like some amateur video because the "consensus in the steering group was not to put it on the front page." And now you guessed it -- I am angry.

So with all of that build up here is the video:

Blast From the Past II

Well the follow up for my blast from the past is finally here. My favorite part of this old school picture is the sweet backdrop. Does anyone else have school pics with the same or a similar backdrop? Send them to me and I'll add them to the post.

I didn't steal my favicon!

So I was checking out the traffic cameras on the WSDOT site and I realized that my favicon looks a lot like theirs .

I didn't steal it. I promise. Who would have know that 'T' could be so popular?

Links to any other 'T' favicons would be appropriate and appreciated.

Looks like the Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority (MBTA) also sports the .
