Insanely Twisted Shadow Puppets

Very Cool Animation! Check it out!

– The ever-innovative Michel Gagné has posted the twelve INSANELY TWISTED SHADOW PUPPETS interstitials and bumpers that he created for Nickelodeon’s “Halloween Shriekin Weekend.” They are short but ingenious pieces of Flash animation. Michel’s kinetic, in-your-face style of timing and animation creates an energetic mood unlike any other animated film I’ve seen recently. As part of his contract with MTV, Michel wisely negotiated that he be allowed to show the unedited spots on his website, and these “Director’s Cuts” versions currently on his site differ significantly from what aired on Nick.

16 and 32 PEOPLE!!!!


AGAIN I saw the man in action. Sets his hand up, looks at the crowd, looks back at the camera tweaks it a lil looks back at the crowd, turns smiles BAM!!! The 1 take wonder god gets 16 PEOPLE IN ONE SHOT! BTW – The contest is getting HUGE I think I got another person in on it and people keep asking me when I am striking next! Will I get it here? Will I strike in Italy! Tune back and see!

WOW, Gleny strikes back the very next day with this way over the top GEM – 32 PEOPLE! This is getting tough! Clearly these people were unaware of the contest, but I am the judge, and if Gleny cracks me up, well it is good enough for me! 33 Here I come!

Gangbusting Harold’s!

For those of you who do not know of Harold’s (a rather large deli/restaurant in Edison), let me enlighten you in our experience! For Dean’s birthday we took him out to his place of choice, Harold’s.

I have been there before and know of the magnitude of the food there! Their sandwiches are literally enough meat for a good 5-6 people, it is insane! As Jos put it, Dean, Billy and I were like GANGBUSTERS! hehe. We ordered 2 smaller sandwiches for 3 people! All said and done we had enough leftovers for another 6 sandwiches or more. I have my lunch still for tomorrow!

Dean went the bacon cheeseburger route, with at least a pound of bacon! Unreal

Check out just one of our sandwiches!

The cakes are HUGE! Dean said he literally cut 15 slices from one piece of cake last time he was there! Although it was Dean’s birthday, we all agreed to throw in the towel and NOT get the cake!

All in all, the damage was done! Don’t know when I will be ever back there again! It was a birthday event to speak about for years to come! Can we go back to hibachi next year 😉
