The Making of Undead Hepcat's Monster Show Part 3 : "Take Two"
My first set of episodes were not what I wanted. Manually editing them together late that Summer really ground in the disappointment as I watched and re-watched my awkward delivery, washed out make-up and static set. Around the time that the Fall '98 semest...

After shooting the material for Season Two, while I was still on break for the Holidays I got a message from Scott Morschhauser that he had something for me and I should go to a show they were having in the Village of East Davenport to pick it up. I went, a...

No Cocktails Were Harmed in the Making of This Program: Undead Hepca'ts Monster Show Season 3
  Watching the work print for Season 3 was pretty rough -- I clearly was having a great time filming this*, but it was at the expense of the quality of the show itself. I trimmed the hour or so of footage of me rambling, flubbing lines, and trying to impres...

I never retained a copy of my original "work print" of original clips for the first season of the Monster Show since it was recorded with UNI-TV's camera (they reused their tapes so its most likely lost forever). However, I do have work prints for the secon...

Making Of The Undead Hepcat's Monster Show Part 1: Season 1 (Fall 1998)
When we last left our hero, he was skipping his way back to the dorm, mind a-blaze with the possibilities of closed circuit television stardom... I didn't have a real solid plan
for the character for the show. The creature features that I'd actually

"Enter the Phunky Phantom" (Or "I Was a Neon Zombie")
That dread season is upon us, and this year I've gone psychedelic with my haunted graveyard lawn decor.   Scowering clearance sales last November 1st, I found this articulated skeleton at a Spirit Halloween store. They'd marked everything 50% off, but my ey...

Savage Streets of the Seventies
For this year's PoorCon (The premier invitational gaming convention of greater Cincinnati suburban basements), I've put together an RPG scenario that's been on my "bucket list" for quite a while:  "street level" Marvel Comics heroes fighting crime in all th...

"Dude, that goalie is PISSED!"
Partially in anticipation for Slash-o-Rama , but mostly because I keep seeing these cheap masks online and the cool stuff other people have done with them, I knocked out this fun DIY project over the last couple days, and now it's all ready for my next camp...
