This is a Flash piece I wrote last night. I took photographs of the flowers in my front yard, and then brought them into Illustrator and ran Live Trace on them (converting the image into vector form). I then separated out twenty of the most interesting shapes, brought them into Flash and made them movie […]

New Wacom Cintiq — 12 inch!
Oh, my God, I really, really, really want this badly. This is the new smaller Cintiq, which — if you’re not familiar — is a pressure sensitive LCD drawing tablet. You draw right on the display, and the stylus is both pressure and angle sensitive, which makes digital drawing as natural as real drawing. Probably […]

Coilhouse » Blog Archive » Mondo 2000: Where Are they Now? So, what made Mondo 2000 so special? It was, in my opinion, the best alternative culture magazine that America ever had.

We’re going to record all live instrumentation + vocals at Ryan Marth’s home studio. ‘Cause he’s got a […]
An Open Letter To America
Hi, America. Josh Ellis here. So I’ve been noticing, for the past couple of years, a rising backlash against the current presidential administration. I hear a lot of you talking, wide-eyed and horrified, about Bush’s lies and the excesses of the NSA and Gonzalez’s Justice Department, the stupidity of the war…you know what you’re all […]
…is officially my new favorite TV show. It’s from Bryan Fuller, who did Dead Like Me, which used to be my favorite show, until it got cancelled. It’s about a guy who can quite inexplicably make dead people come alive again. But if he touches them again, they die; and if he doesn’t touch them […]
Well, this is gonna be a fun trip :-)

The Floating World
Written for a girl I was in love with, a long time ago. FLOATING WORLD The others are sleeping now, Cold as comfort in their Eddie Bauer blankets And the loft at the top of the honest Yankee cabin Where Bowery mothers come to tan their ankles in mountain sun And kiss the air that […]
