National Squirrel Appreciation Day

January 21st is National Squirrel Appreciation Day . . . that's right, there's a national holiday dedicated to appreciating squirrels, for some reason. Ours is not to question why, though, so here's some special new artwork dedicated to showing appreciation for squirrels out there; at least Easter Egg is showing she cares by showing concern for their sodium intake.

Mustn't let squirrels have too much sodium

And, say, why not take a moment to go back and take an old personality quiz to see which of The Squirrely Squirrels you're most like?

A New Christmas Quickie

After completing a new Steve D'Monster puppet, I decided to also build a new Ella the Elf puppet, and have them do a new skit on YouTube for Christmas; the final results are:

Steve's First Live Stream . . . A Bust

Steve had his first-ever live stream on both Facebook and YouTube earlier this evening (well, technically, last night, since it's after midnight now).

This wasn't my first time doing a live stream, but it was my first time doing it on two different outlets at once, and unfortunately, the results weren't so great. Facebook has really been falling to pieces in recent months, and this stream was no exception: for whatever reason, the comments stopped refreshing during the stream, so there were a ton of comments that were being posted during the stream that weren't showing up on my end. Because of this, the stream was cut short, but for archival purposes, here is a replay of Steve's first-ever live stream:

The main reason the stream was cut short was due to my cellphone ringing repeatedly, which turned out to be someone trying to call me to let me know that I was missing out on a slew of Facebook comments.

The Martian Hop Music Video

The Ran-Dells' "The Martian Hop" is a quirky little novelty song from the oldies era that I've been wanting to do a music video for for years, the problem is I never was exactly sure how I would approach this . . . I really couldn't see myself constructing some martian puppets for just one little music video.

It finally donned on me that with the upcoming MORON LEAGUE 4 in the works, that said martians for the music video could be none other than the Nerdlucks! As much as I denounce the excessive overuse of chromakey in modern film and television, the work I did on this music video turned out to be roughly 99% chromakey! Some had to be done with green screen, other with blue screen - it wasn't perfect, and the keying didn't turn out perfect either, but I suppose I got the job done for what I wanted to do.

So, finally, here is my music video for "The Martian Hop" by The Ran-Dells, with the Nerdlucks (and also featuring cameos by characters from SEINFELD, SESAME STREET, and ALVINNN!!! AND THE CHIPMUNKS).
