ahem..

February 17, 2009

*crickets are heard* I know. We’ve been rather silent lately. Things have happened, people have traveled, some have been too busy. The good news is that in a few weeks we’ll be all yours. We’ll be more active here that’s for sure. I promise to post more random youtube videos once I go back to Canada (I am currently in Malaysia for another 3 weeks and the internet is f’in slow it’s terrible). We’ll also add more work to our already well-seasoned portfolio. Promise.

I’ve already started the awakening by updating my own portfolio: http://www.makeshift.ca

Will we update our site design here as well? Hmm probably not. To be honest, we like it a lot. it just works. Maybe some small tinkering.. and maybe fix the dropdown menu that is suppose to appear on the portfolio section.. it borked and our programmer ditched us for white water rafting. Hmpf.

happy new year, minions!

Christmas movies lineup

December 26, 2008

Hope you all had a good xmas time :) Here’s a short review of each movie we saw in the last 24 hrs:

Gran Torino: Movie of the year for me. Top notch from start to finish. Clint is still the man. 10 eggrolls out of 10.

The Spirit: What the hell? What a piece of crap that was. Incoherent blabber crap with cool visuals that sadly does nothing to save the movie. The only thing that *might* have salvaged this wreck would have been to show Scarlet Johansson naked. At least give us something, assholes. 2 quick DVD releases out of 10.

Zach and Miri Make A Porn: Kevin Smith makes another gem. The storyline was predictable but the script is very solid and hilarious. 8 dildos out of 10.

The Wackness: Very well filmed, surprising acting from Josh Peck and a storyline that draws you in. Charming movie. 7 weed smoking psychologists out of 10.

Choke: Solid start to the movie based on an original and refreshing concept, but kinda tails off a bit in the end. Nonetheless, worth a view. 6 holy foreskins out of 10.

The Wrestler: Darren Aronofsky is my favorite director and he shows why again. Mickey Rourke delivers, you’ll see him on the Oscar ballot for sure. A very compelling and touching story. 10 ram jams out of 10.

Next up are Frost/Nixon, Lakeview Terrace, Benjamin Button and Valkyrie (maybe, my fiance can’t stand Tom Cruise). A full week of movies!

The Web 3.0

Watch the video and be amazed. Considering it’s in alpha and still blew my mind, it’s very very promising.

Yes, we are still breathing. We’re just lazy. I admit it.

We just finished some shirts for NIN’s new tour, but in the meantime you can grab a “Ghosts” one from Hot Topic here: http://www.hottopic.com/hottopic/store/product.jsp?FOLDER%3C%3Efolder_id=2534374302028381&PRODUCT%3C%3Eprd_id=845524442181369&bmUID=1215623748436

Cats anyone?

Sharkwater

May 12, 2008

http://www.sharkwater.com/

Go see it or download it, but make sure to see it. It’s time we do something to save them. I never knew sharks could impact our world so much. Basically, if they go, we’re in deep trouble.

Also, sign this petition to stop shark finning at Alibaba.com (the stupidest bs ever): http://www.thepetitionsite.com/takeaction/400108473

Busy Week

May 5, 2008

Was pretty busy this week working on numerous projects at the same time. I did 3 shirts for 30 Seconds to Mars, 2 for Rage Against The Machine, and some web work for my regular clients. I had to work during the weekend to finish stuff up because I am going on vacation tomorrow. :) We were suppose to go to the British Virgin Islands (paradise on earth to me) but we found out she needs a visa just to transit in the US (pfff). It costs 130 bucks and it takes 6 weeks, so we were too late. We settled on going up north to do some kayaking and other outdoors-y things.

I just bought the new Canon EOS 450D DSLR as a reward for my hard work. :) I’m really looking fwd to playing with it and using it to grab textures and elements for my work. I also look forward to bug Dennis and ask him more photography questions every 2 minutes.

Will post pics of my trip (taken with my crummy pocket camera!). :)

Interviewings

April 17, 2008

French Design blog Artskills did a neat interview with yours truly. He asks us about our workflow, inspiration, and future plans. It’s in french though so you might need Google to read it.
