Even Steven


My hard-drive died.

Nope, didn't back up anything. Well, anything within the last 5 months. I took my laptop to some Mac data recovery place, they're currently anointing it with oils and soon will be sacrificing a chicken on it. I think I'm supposed to bath with it in a pool of fresh virgin blood. If I was still in New York, I know who could get his hands on at least a gallon, but in LA I think I have to settle for the frozen stuff. I'll hopefully hear back on Friday. I'm almost as late as Titanic mail on a freelance gig, but I saw light at the end of the tunnel. Man, I hope they can get my files back. I'm dreading the "dog ate my homework" call.

And then there's the other side.

I found myself on the Cartoon Brew recommended blogs list. I'm dumbfounded, and feel totally honored. So thank you Jerry and Amid for that.

If that wasn't enough, I got linked on Drawn! alongside my great friend Ryan "Seabass" Smith. He was there when Andy almost knocked my front row of teeth out with a bottle of Jack.

I also got to meet the super-nice, super-talented Jorge Gutierrez, whose pilot for Nick looks great (or at least the bit I saw before the DVD exploded). I also met his story supervisor Dave Thomas, but I don't have a fun link for him, but here's Wildbrain, and if you click on TV you can see a clip of the series he created that aired in Europe called "Poochini".

Work on the pilot at WB is going really well. We sent off animation tests to a few studios and should have some animation back in a few weeks. I can't wait to see what we get.

Now my boss is waiting for me to get off his computer so he can check his email and go home.

Uncle Phil

Hey Philabusta! Thanks for stopping by my blog. Congrats for appearing on Cartoon Brew! Thats so awesome! As for your cpu, sorry to hear. May it's soul rest in the digital heavens. Is Dave Thomas that guy from Strange Brew? I used to work for him at Animax years ago. Tell him I said hi.
