Arturo the Birthday Boy

This is Art. It’s his birthday. He loves this photo. Cake in the rollover. It says spanish stuff on it.

Luxos Held Hostage

Today at DreamWorks we rounded up all the Pixar Luxos and destroyed made them disappear. Don’t they looked frightened with their little environmental bulbs? One made a run for it. It wasn’t pretty. Oh, and this is a brand spankin’ new point and shoot Canon sd880! So I did a pano. Because I do that […]

Japanese Village

It was really nice and clear today but stormy looking! We headed downtown to go to the library. I know, right?! I have a library card. Apparantly, with the economy, library card applications are on the rise. Then we ended up in Japanese Village for dinner at Oomasa. After dinner we walked over to Yogurtland, […]

Wastin’ Gas

We just drove around today. Until the sunset and then got yogurt. Red Mango. Which as of this late writing has gone out of business.

Long Beach Aquarium

After the Doo Dah Parade we headed down to Long Beach to go to the aquarium. To see the aquaria. They were reopening for the night between 5 and 9pm. From Pasadena we stopped by the house, then Yogurtland for a quick treat before heading down. We did a little tour of Long Beach then […]

Doo Dah Parade

I’ve been to the Rose Parade a few times and frankly it’s a much better experience on an HD TV in the comfort of your own home. No cold night sitting on the curb, no sleeping whatsoever, no hunger, nobody throwing things at you from their cars, and no trying to drive home after all […]

The Jim Henson Creature Shop / A&M Records / Charlie Chaplin Studios

Liza got back in town Monday night! She’ll be here for a few months and off we went tonight to the Jim Henson Studios, formerly A&M Records, formerly formerly Charlie Chaplin’s studios. Jim Henson’s Creature Shop was doing a demo of their technology and also held an open house. They did some motion capture demos […]

Team Freak – Monsters Vs. Aliens Lunch

Each lighting team on Monsters Vs. Aliens is named something monstery. So far I’ve been on three teams on this show. Team Freak, Team Thing, and Team Gort. Team Freak leader Robert took us out to lunch as we wrapped up our sequences. We ate at Picanha in beautiful downtown Burbank. Russell on the left […]

Greystone Mansion

For no reason other than Meat Loaf shot that video there I thought I’d check out the Greystone Mansion. Turns out a lot more than that has been shot there over the years. Most recently that crazy ending in “There Will Be Blood“. Apparently they got a cut in the rate to film there for […]
