iLife ’06 – good news for all of us

Three things real quick-like: 1. I’m still alive and I haven’t quit – because I can’t quit you! 2. I just got iLife ’06 and the new podcast features in GarageBand will make my life so much easier! 3. That means I won’t dread the tedium and time of packaging a podcast (the way I [...]

An about me page

I guess I should have done this a while ago, but I always have felt that this site isn’t about me, but the guests on the shows. I’ve finally gone and made a page with all the juicy details about how I came to work in animation, as that subject (not me particularly, but in [...]

Where are you?

I know, I know. You want more shows. They will come, I promise. In the meantime, I just took a break and set up a Frappr map. You can go there and add yourself so we can all see who’s listening and from where. Be sure to use the Shoutout box to tell something about [...]

ASIFA-Hollywood Animation Archive

After working in animation for eleven years, I decided that it was time to participate a little more in the animation community. This site is an tangible, um audible, result of that decision (hope you like it). Something else I decided to do was to finally join ASIFA-Hollywood. So earlier this week I dropped off [...]

Enhanced podcasts are coming

From this point on, each show will be produced in two formats. The mp3 version you’ve come to love will still be available via the links on this site and through this iTunes page (iTunes required). The second format is the same audio, but in the AAC format. This allows me to do a few [...]

International Talk Like a Pirate Day

Ahoy mateys! Alas, thar be no new show today, and ye should be thanking yer lucky star, for this be “International Talk Like a Pirate Day!” Aaaarrrggh! I’d be daft to turn a blind ear to that siren’s song, and I’d be havin’ t’ talk in a sea dog voice. Today, I be too busy [...]

Long time no hear

First I want to welcome any visitors who have recently found the site. And for those of you waiting patiently (as far as I can tell) for the next show, thanks for hanging in there. All this time and no posts or shows and I’m just here to say life’s been busy. Funny how getting [...]

RSS is the way to go

Once again, Jim at Seward Street is absolutely right. The best way to stay up to date and not blow your morning jumping from webpage to webpage is to use the power of RSS to bring all the new posts to you. I know there’s a huge number of you who visit my site every [...]

Another event during SIGGRAPH

I got an email from Rick May at the CGCHAR forums asking if I could plug their event on Wednesday the 3rd at SIGGRAPH. It’s a presentation by a very talented group of animation pros including Doug Bennett, Henry Anderson, Jason Schleifer, Andrew Gordon, and Carlos Baena. I’d love to be able to go to [...]


SIGGRAPH is returning to take over downtown L.A. next week. The Disney booth is back too and we’ll have real live animators there to demo our tools and answer questions. They’re taking reels too, so bring it on! On Tuesday, I’ll be working the booth and driving the Maya from 10 to 12:30. Stop by [...]
