On Saturday, December 21st I had the brilliant idea to do an animation for Christmas, with a whole 4 days to do it in. It would have dancing, singing, FX, multiple characters and... it's kind of like a college student's project, including the fact that I stayed up til 5am one night working on it.

Here is the hot mess that is the result. A short, just in time for Christmas. I present to you all: Cool Yule.

Subsidies cheat workers and taxpayers.  They need to go!

Yeah, it's crazy.  The Vancouver and games situation is extra crazy because Vancouver has at the same time, become a black hole of film production, sucking them in from across the globe.  It's an artificial economy poised for collapse, should local voters figure out just how much of their money is getting funneled back to Hollywood.

Reanimators Podcast is not dead!  Just... slow.  Episode 40 is LIVE with +Jon Jones +Mike Jungbluth +Rick Blankenship talking about Outsourcing in the games industry.  It was recorded late at night so pardon any delirium (or singing) near the end.

Also, we recorded Episode 39 of the Reanimators Podcast recently with well-spoken UI artist +Caryn Vainio, in the middle of the "misogyny in games" shitstorm that followed E3.

Check it out here: http://reanimators.net/?p=409
TOPIC: Sexism in games and gamers. Guest: Caryn Vainio, UI artist at Uber Entertainment. I bet you haven't heard enough about the Tomb Raider trailer debacle? How about Anita Sarkeesian and her “trope...

"How one Animator went from Baby to Batman! How one small indie studio went from average to awesome!" Do +Polygon writers get paid per alliteration?

Since I often forget about G+'s existance, I forget to share things here too.  But last month I did a chat with Ben Kuchera from Penny Arcade about the ground floor basics of what it is that a game animator does.  You can check it out here:

Super helpful! Small shops are always better service and knowledge. Thanks for fixing my guitar!

This is the 4th time I've shipped a car (2 open, 2 enclosed) and I've actually had a descent to great experience every time. I like to think that is because I have been diligent in thoroughly researching shippers before taking the plunge. Sometimes that means not going for the absolute lowest price available but I love my cars and want them to arrive the same condition they were loaded. Graham was my point of contact after submitting a quote online. He was very attentive, always called back quickly and even adjusted his quote to match another well-rated competitor. He was in contact before, during and after the process to make sure everything went smoothly. The car arrived 5 days earlier than promised! I have zero complaints and wouldn't hesitate to use Amerifreight again for my car shipping needs.
