Got Sleep?

This is where I play a security guard for my friends final project, for his Film 21 class.
It was fun to shoot, and Eddie (the writer/director) was nice to work with, and I wouldn't mind being in any of his future projects.

(He bought me wings, and pizza on the first day of shooting, he won me over.)

Show him some love, and watch his short film:

Written and Directed: Eddie Rodriguez
Starring: Jimmy Arias
Cinematography: Phillip Leavenworth
Lighting: Joseph Herrera

Disturban Media: Paranormal Paranoia

Previously attacked by an distinctive entity, Jimmy and Grrsom venture off in pursuit of....Manny.
All music in this video was made specifically for this video by Disturban Melodies.

After Disturban Media had such a long hiatus, here it is... finally, a new video.

This video was super fun to film, and the concept of the video changed drastically, from what we originally intended, to what the finished product was.

I think that's the beauty of this particular project is like many things DM has done, it didn't go according to plan. We thought of an idea ahead of time, and by the time it was time to shoot that idea evolved to something a lot better that what we would've hoped.

For example this video was originally supposed to be uploaded to my channel, but things don't always go according to plan. So I guess we just have to embrace it, and hope for the best.

Special thanks to Manny, and Grr for their work on this video.

Free Stuff!

Okay, so I'm often told that nothing in life is free. Which is completely true.
Even if you're not paying in actual currency, you'll still have to "pay" with some sort of action to get what you want.

for example:

Let's say you really want this necklace, and it's a giveaway. You'll have to enter the contest. That right there is an action. 

And while we're on the topic of giveaways. My friend over at Happy Charms/HappyR0bot is giving away a MineCraft inspired "diamond" necklace.

All you have to do is like their facebook page, and like the contest post. Once the post reaches 100 likes they'll pick a winner, hopefully it's you. 

BUT, if you don't like MineCraft and would much rather buy something, you can check out their shop here, they have some awesome stuff.

and just a disclaimer: I am NOT getting paid to promote them. I really like their work, and I want more people to know about them.

I missed "Free Comic Book Day 2013"

For those of you who don't know, today was free comic book day. A "holiday" where comic book publishers, and comic book shops celebrate by giving away free comic books. This is a great strategy to attract new readers, and potential new customers to a store.

So why'd I miss such an awesome event?

Well, I'm already a reader. I frequent a comic book shop, and I buy more than just comics there. So I didn't see the need to go on a day where they'd be at their busiest. I'd prefer to go, take my time, and leave with more than just a stack of free comics.

Sure the free comics are nice, but as more than just a casual reader do I want a bunch of books with "free comic book day" printed at the top?
Nope. I'd rather buy the latest Deadpool, buy a few stickers, and make both the publisher, and the shop some money.

Besides. There was a huge line to get in to the store, already a sign that any books that I would've been interested in would be gone. So I skipped it. Maybe next year? Probably not.
I did however celebrate by playing injustice, Batman Arkham City, and by adding a new figure to my TMNT collection.

Happy Star Wars day, and May the Fourth be with you.
