Somewhere

Somewhere Script

Everything in Movieland moves so much slower than most people realize. A few months into 2009, Schell Sculpture Studio was contacted about being featured in Sofia Coppola’s newest project, “Somewhere.” By middle of the year it had been shot, and by the beginning of 2010, I had gotten to see the final product (sitting immediately behind Sofia, no less). So for some reason (I think something to do with pregnancy), it has only just come out. If you manage to find it in the theater, you can see me life-casting Stephen Dorff (translate: doing my job). You can also see me doing it briefly in this trailer:

I know this film has caught some shit from critics, but I really believe that it would’ve gotten nothing but praise had she not already made a film with similar themes and tone (Lost in Translation).

The image at the top of this post is from a shooting script someone left behind, and I kept. It links to the artwork from the t-shirt that I’m wearing in this film.

I Got Married

Wedding Invitation

Sorry, ladies, but Joey (that’s right; that’s me in the 3rd person) is off the market. On September 18th, I up and married my favorite person–Jennifer Rocket. And before you start thinking I married a blood relative (I am not my parents), Rocket is her married name. Previously, she was Jennifer Bailey, half of the infamous Bailey twins. The image above was our wedding invitation. If you would like to know more about my Love, you may visit her website, which I built, because that’s what men do for the women they love. They build shit. You can find it here: JenRocket.com

My Constitution is Strong

I went a whole year without blogging. That’s how powerful my will is. I’ll add a piece of art here later.

It has come to this.

I threatened to do it, so buckle up, sluts. It’s time to get this party started.

I found something wholly magnificent at what I call Mexican Gabe’s. For those of you unacquainted with Gabe’s (short for Gabriel Brothers), it is a chain of stores that exists in six states toward the eastern lump of these United States. Each store is stocked to the gills with second-run, slightly-irregular, and (way) off-brand products that are bought at a fraction of normal cost and sold to consumers for a penny more. And for those of you unacquainted with Mexico, it is a third-world country that resides mostly in California–it has delicious Coca-cola, exquisite diarrhea, and no understanding whatsoever of personal boundaries.

Cut to the chase: I love my new Pro-Joggs. That’s right. I’m blogging about my sneakers. Suck it!

These cost ten dollars, and I love everything about them. I love their flinty blue nylon off-set by their saturated navy blue suede. I love their skinny-plastic-skateboard, like Duane from “What’s Happening”, style. I love their bright white vinyl, vaguely trademark infringing swoosh. I love their natural latex colored sole, which squeaks like the first day of school with every step.

Look at this logo! I am a damned fine designer, and I don’t think I could design a more boss logo if all of my candy was in jeopardy of spontaneously turning into celery. These might be the finest shoes ever crafted.

If you Google Pro-Joggs, you will get an address for the manufacturer but not much else–no official website. If you do an image search, you’ll get mostly pornography, because Joggs seems to be interchangable with jugs. I am truly blessed as it seems these shoes were handed to me directly from Jesus (which is a Mexican name). Did I mention there was only one pair sitting all alone on the shelf?

Kismet!

This is the perfect period at the end of the sentence. I’m sure this is a rip-off of Adidas or some other shoe company, but I just love the audacity of a shoe company that makes bo-bos (street slang for knock-off kicks) proudly and blatantly flaunting their bullshit branding. That’s right, world. I’m wearing Pro-Joggs!

Thanks, Mexico.

New Hair and Uploads

New Hair

So, a couple of weeks ago, I (with the help of Jennifer) finally died my hair to look like a chipmonk. This is a hairstyle I desired to do for a decade. I wanted to do it on Daisher, because he was the canvas for my two greatest hair creations ever–leopard head (which got ripped off to no end, and is now, sadly passé), and clown hair (hair died green shaved into the shape of male pattern baldness).

Also, let it be known that the galleries are now populated with years and years worth of my time-wasting, as is the media section. Here is a rarebit to whet your appetite:  

This is the seldom seen “Freezer Burn” without the musical score. I always felt that this one could stand on its own without the score (which was excellently produced by Beau DeMonte). I felt that the score pushed it more towards being a cartoon (which is fair for this piece). However, without music, the piece feels more oddball and unique, and I kind of like that.
 

Bon appétit!
