This Week: TOTS LIVE!!! A Life Story, and a TOTS Music Video!

October 27, 2008

Well, well, well,

It’s a new week, lets see what the Blight Blog has in-store for you good folks.

Well, only 2 days until you crazy die hard fans journey all the way to New York City to see your favorite band, “THINGS OUTSIDE THE SKIN“, perform live for the first time in over a year!  I dug out a crazy comic strip from a few years back, because none of you have ever seen it!  I posted an old TOTS music video, just to remind you of what you all will be experiencing this Wednesday.  And of course, some special Halloween Youtube madness.

-LIFE STORIES #1-

So you might notice, there is no Blight the Clown comic this week.  I have to apologize for that, but I was dragged out of town for a film festival and reunion style thingy.

Last week, I posted on the blog a short film that I shot and co-edited featuring 5 year old kids called, “MacBeth“.  Well, to my surprise it got selected for a film festival last Friday and WON!!!  After 10 years it gets screened and actually works.  That was a pretty cool experience.

I also had to accompany the little lady, some of you folks might know as, “MY RED BALLOON PAL”, to her 10 year college reunion.  Boy oh boy, was that an exciting shindig!

But the real reason that there is no Blight the Clown comic this week is because I have been busting my ass editing a special fun filled horrific horror movie montage to project at Wednesdays, “THINGS OUTSIDE THE SKIN” Spooktacular Halloween Concert!

DON’T FORGET!!!

ONLY 2 MORE DAYS!!!!!!

This is an older music video I made for my band a few years ago.  You can hear my bass in the music, but you don’t see me.  This is because I was behind the camera.  Sorry, next TOTS video I make, I promise will have Blight the Clown in it!

:::YOUTUBE MADNESS:::

Lastly, I will leave you all with an old classic Youtube video, in good Halloween fun.

Your Pal,

:::HALLOWEEN CANDY WARNING:::

-Deadly Candy 4 Halloween?. . .-

Halloween Candy May Be Laced with Melamine! The Same Ingredient that Harmed and Killed Tens of Thousands of Pets last year!

This awesome toy review guy reviewed the Domo Kun Exclusive Halloween Products about a week and a half ago, and Noticed that the China Made Chocolate Candies contained Powdered Milk Ingredients. These Candies were likely made when the Tainted Milk Problem was beginning over the Summer. They would take several weeks to ship from China to be on Store Shelves in Early September.

The Melamine Tainted Milk Crisis BROKE around September 16th 2008. It is possible that MANY Chinese chocolate candies may contain this Dangerous Ingredient!

:::WACKY YOUTUBE MADNESS:::

From the folks that brought you the insane movie, “LOVECRACKED” that contained animation and music from Blight Productions, comes an all new vampire horror comedy:

-Dead Sucks (teaser trailer)-

1st trailer for the new vampire comedy from BiFF JUGGERNAUT Productions. Find out why it sucks to be dead at www.deadsucks.com.

Also,

While I was poking around on Youtube I found an old creation of Blight Productions.  This was the first collaboration between Marie Films and Blight Productions.  I shot this little video while a bunch of 5 year old’s were hanging on my back.  Beau Marie and I edited the shit out of this thing to try and make unintelligible 5 year old’s understandable.  Enjoy!

Shakespeare’s greatest tragedy brought to life by a tiny group of 1st and 2nd graders.
