My Happy Place

Fabricating stop-motion sets relaxes me. I suppose this is a good thing, as my thesis film is in dire need of speed. GO-GO-GO!

Behold! One-third of the cardboard tower to be featured in "Gustave and Claude". I hope to finish the construction by Wednesday evening, and once that's done, we'll paint... boy, oh boy, oh boy...

You know a wedding is successful when your guests start doing the wave (fifth shot from the bottom) and dancing like Michael (as in Jackson... second shot from the bottom)... Photos taken by Max.

Room With a View

My gig at the JHC (Jim Henson Company) has been gravy. Like Fight Club, you don't talk about the JHC, so with that said, I shall move on to the other scintillating event that's been toying with my life - and le cub's!

Our new home. It's in Silver Lake (still in La-La land, my friends), and we're currently in escrow. Want a sneak-peek of our new pad? Mos-def? Look above! View from the deck of our new baby. *collective oohs and ahhs* Yes, we can't believe it either!

Starting to build out my version of the cardboard tower pictured above. (Source: ffffound) The structure will be making a snazzy appearance in the opening shot of my thesis film... Yup. Thesis film. Feels good to be working on my film again!

Apparently Beans agrees. He stays up when I stay up. Adorbs.

Trips Ahoy

Le cub and I were in the Big Apple this past weekend, and yes, we saw lots, ate lots, and shopped lots. Well, window-shopped lots. Ever the patient fella', he spent a grand total of 6 hours at ABC Carpet & Home with yours truly. What can I say? The shop is beautiful. It's a museum, really... and I was mesmerized by the thought of furnishing our future home (more about that later) in ABC's delectable ware. Dreams do come true, you know...

Pictured: Snapshot of the beautiful walnut table at Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s ABC Kitchen. (Isn't it goooorgeous?) Yep, the shop has a restaurant on its lower level. And yes, we ate there. C'mon... 6 hours! The decor is rustic... hip... whimsical. I ate it ALL up, dammit. So frickin' good. The decor and the food!

She's So Lucky

... "she" is me. I have so much to be thankful for, and it's not even Thanksgiving. A few reasons I've been so damn "gushy" as of late. (Read 'em and you just might understand.)

1) My boss is better than your boss. Being a Henson minion is so freakin' rad. I will be forever grateful for this experience.

2) Le hub and I are in talks to purchase our very own adult home. Don't want to jinx ourselves, so I'm not posting any photos or providing any details about location, but let's just say we are excited. Like, hearts pulsating out of our eyeballs excited!

3) New York bound. Vacay!!! Yes, I'm braving the storms to meet le hub in colder turf. Alas, this love is serious.

4) Max Wanger. He has sent us our wedding photos, and they are beyond wonderful. To be posted. Naturally.

Pictured: Our wedding cake topper as photographed by Max. Yes, I made it :)

Playing House

Put in another offer on a house. Le hub and I are hopeful that things will work out this time around. Plucked a couple of images from Elle Decor and Remodelista. Yup, I have high hopes for this second larger, GRANDER abode... I really do. In fact, I've already mentally moved in... *GOGOGO!*

Gustave and Claude

Pictured? Gustave the snail. Claude the pill bug. Stars of my thesis film, "Gustave and Claude". That's right, I'm just overflowing with creative juices. The duo is French. The duo is evil. (So French, that I plan to open the short with THIS song.) Oui, my thesis film is looking like one hot-mess. But it's going to so much frickin' fun to make!!!

Yes, Please

Beans and I groove to this. I have no idea what this cool gent in shades is singing about, but I don't care. I slap my knee to the beat... pretending I have a tambourine in hand... because I'm weird. Because I can.

Best Day Ever.

... since Le Cub and Cougar Wedding.

I start as a Business Development and Production intern at The Jim Henson Company next Wednesday. In addition to working for the coolest company on the planet, I'll be working for the coolest boss. 2011, you're off to a fantabulous start. I promise not to eff this up. THANK YOU!!!

Keeping Up with the Jones'

Jealous of Buttman's Jeff Koons acquisition, Gustav leases a sequin-encrusted vehicle to flaunt in his neighbor's face. His tactic works, for Buttman is left pondering the current worth of the banal piece of work before him...
