THINGS OUTSIDE THE SKIN @ OTTO’S, THE SPIN CYCLE & PHOTOS FROM THE WEST COAST!

January 20, 2009

Howdy,

I have a bunch of events coming up this week, my band THINGS OUTSIDE THE SKIN is playing a show Tuesday night (TONIGHT) at Otto’s Shrunken head to celebrate the inauguration of Obama and two of my friends birthdays. Later in the week a play that I created a bunch of video for called THE SPIN CYCLE is beginning a 3 week run and I am also posting some fun never before posted photos from a trip I took to California. Enjoy!

There is no new comic this week because I have been going crazy busy with the SPIN CYCLE videos and my new clown movie, hopefully I will get a new comic out next posting.

-THINGS OUTSIDE THE SKIN LIVE @ OTTO’S SHRUNKEN HEAD-

Inauguration Day show! Will be the final performance of the current version of t.o.t.s. “American Way”. Come out out and say goodbye to Bush.. have your photo taken with a headless George W and the band!

For all you locals, its also Father Vincent’s Birthday Party! If you have EVER been to OTTO’S you know who he is! Come out and show some love! We will be sharing the stage with “Tripping into Madness” (http://www.myspace.com/trippingintomadness) who take the stage at 10PM.

:::OTHER CLOWN NEWS:::

My good friend and clown mentor Jef Johnson is doing something very special with his amazing Clown Lab this month and you all should check it out:

The class will be limited and already there has been alot of interest.  Slava Polunin has called Chris Lynam “one of the world’s funniest clowns”.  This is a special opportunity.

Jef Johnson’s CLOWN LAB  presents
MODERN CLOWN WORKSHOP

with Chris Lynam

“What happens when you wake up and find that you will never wake up again, that everything you make up is down, and everything you make down is up?

That piece of toast you had for breakfast is really a piece of beach in the Caribbean, your wife is a fruitcake and your children are raspberries.

In amongst all this confusion it becomes apparent that something very important is missing from the backbone of man’s existence…”

CHRIS LYNAM is renowned for many things, but mainly for bringing his brand of crazed humor to bear on unsuspecting audiences.  Known as The Beast of British Comedy, his work is both dangerous and exciting, stretching variety to its limits.  The New York Times called him “a brilliantly bizarre antidote to today’s truculent society.”

Monday, December 29
6:00pm-10:00pm

Cost:  $125.00

:::NEW DEMO REEL:::

-THE 2008 BLIGHT PRODUCTIONS “PRODUCING” DEMO REEL-

I just put this reel together of some of my favorite clips from productions I have done over the past few years. If you dig the work please check out some more of my stuff.

The clips featured are:

(Nominated for a 2006 EMMY)

I Killed A Moose

ART or something like it! – A television series about artists
(Nominated for a 2007 EMMY)

A Clown Carol – The Marley Murder Mystery

Barry Mitchell, Lloyd Kaufman, Bill Plympton, Scott McCloud, Gregory Barsamian, Patrick Smith, Smadar Levi, Martina Secondo Russo, Todd Robbins, Eric Davis, Jerrod Bogard

:::DEVIANTART SUGGESTION THREAD CRAZINESS:::

So I am a pretty active member of this Social Network site called DeviantART, it boasts to be the largest online community for artists on the internet. They have a forum for suggestions on the site. I thought that it might be a good idea to create an EVENTS feature to help artists promote their art openings, film screenings, performances, and other things like that.  With the idea to keep it well organized by City, Date, and Time.  Pretty strait forward idea, but some of the responses I got were rather wacked out.  Check out the posting thread here, it’s still going on, so be sure to read all the pages and let me know what you think: http://forum.deviantart.com/devart/suggestions/1204686/

:::OTHER NEWS:::

I am fully stocked with some kick ass postcards, so if you want to help promote my Clown Carol movie or my comic strip please let me know and I can send you a stack of postcards to pass out in your neck of the woods. Just use the contact form on my website, and I will get back to you ASAP!

Lovecraft” inspired drawing.  Peruse through all the pictures and video my friendly “T.O.T.S” fans made during last weeks Halloween spooktacular.  And swing by the fancy new online shop I set up, so you can buy you favorite full color Blight Productions T-Shirts for less than 20 bucks a pop!

::NEW COMIC STRIP::

Please note, this weeks Blight the Clown comic strip is based 100% on a real conversation I had with my brother.

(Click here for the comic archive)

Yes folk’s, just before last weeks Halloween spooktacular, Chvad had asked me if I thought it would be cool and funny to put some cat shit into the candy bags I passed out to the audience during the show.  The idea being some bags would have just candy, some would have a voucher for a free TOTS CD, some would have a voucher for a free crappy horror movie, and some would have CAT SHIT! His idea being that some would be TRICKS and some would be treats.

I only wish at that moment I could of reached through the phone and pied him in the face for real.  With that being one of the WORST ideas I had ever heard!  Do not worry folks, I made the candy bags myself and filled them with only good things!

This is a little drawing some how inspired by H.P. Lovecraft.   A bit zombie, a bit clown, a bit tentacle demon, a bit monster.

:::NOTES FROM THE 10/29/08 HALLOWEEN SHOW:::

A good amount of people came out to the last show.  It was really damn fun.  A bunch of amazing photographers and videographers came out to document the night.  Below are a few of the images followed by links to their perspective online galleries with more photos from the night.

Check out the video that Elias of Biff Juggernaut Productions shot and edited for us from that night:

I am a little bummed that you can barely hear my bass in the audio mix, but at least this gives you an idea of the insanity that comes with a live TOTS show.

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-
(Click the image for a larger version)

(Click here to purchase a print)

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.

So, just for your information, if some of you folks have not been paying attention, Blight the Clown has in the past had an allergic reaction to makeup around his eyes.  In order to prevent any nastiness while performing onstage, I have developed some super cool, Blight the Clown eyes.  They will create the living comic strip character even more.  Check out a crappy little photo of them here:

:::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.
