So maybe I know a mad scientist maybe I don’t. Maybe I am a mad scientist, maybe I am not. But I do know that an angry rat is NOT something anyone wants to be around!

Be well,

Your pal,

CLOWNLAND – A CLOWN-NOIR COMIC STRIP, Another LIFE STORY, and a whole bunch of T.O.T.S. live show dates!

December 8, 2008

Well, howdy doo folks,

It’s been a while since the last posting. I have been hard at work drawing my fingers to the bone and redesigning parts of the Blight Productions website. In this super sassy posting, I am premiering a new clown-noir comic strip called, “CLOWNLAND“. It’s about a bunch of characters that exist in a world where everyone is a clown, and not everything is funny. I have also posted another one of my “LIFE STORIES” a webcomic that is some how in some way loosely based on events that occur in my life. I am also posting the next few show dates for my band, “THINGS OUTSIDE THE SKIN.” So be sure to read this blog all the way to the end, then forward the link to all your friends, and maybe even a few of you enemy’s.

:::NEWS:::

In addition to drawing my fingers to the bone over the last few weeks, I have been updating the website like crazy and learning a few new little web tools. I updated the webcomics section of my site, so that it is a bit more organized and easier to navigate. And I redesigned the front page to the website to integrate a new tool that I discovered called “Friend Feed”, it is a pretty badass little widget that allows you to redirect all of your web activities, like blog posting, twittering, facebook, myspace, digg, youtube and a whole bunch more into one feed embedded onto your site, so that there is an always updated and active amount of interesting content on you website. Check the tool out here: http://friendfeed.com/. I have also been experimenting with a cool little tool called, “MINGGL”, this is a cool little toolbar plugin for your web browser, that allows you to manage all of you social networks at the same time.  Keep an eye on all the active status messages and twitters in one feed, as well as the ability to post your own status message to twitter, facebook, and myspace at the same time. It is a pretty amazing time saver. Check it out here: http://www.minggl.com/ . I have also posted my Holiday classic movie, “A CLOWN CAROL – The Marley Murder Mystery” on the website “Funny or Die” please check it out and vote my movie FUNNY to keep it active, also repost it to your facebook and myspace, share it with your friends and tell them to vote it FUNNY.  Click here to watch and vote: http://www.funnyordie.com/videos/15148744a7/a-clown-carol-the-marley-murder-mystery-from-blightproductions

Howdy there, my super funkdefied friends,

In this weeks blogaroo, I’ve posted up some brand new designs for some super cool postcards I am having printed up to give out to you and your friends next time you come to a THINGS OUTSIDE THE SKIN show.  Which, by the way, the next one is happening one week from NOW, Sunday, November 16th @ Arlenes Grocery, more details in the blog below.  I have posted some kick ass live videos that the folks over at Biff Juggernaut Productions shot at the last show, check them out, see what you missed, and see why you NEED to come to the show on the 16th.  Oh yeah, I also posted up another almost realistically real “Life Story” comic strip made by yours truly.

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!!!!!!

THINGS OUTSIDE THE SKIN (Featuring Blight the Clown)
OCTOBER 29th 2008
8:00PM – 11:00PM
@ THE ANNEX
152 ORCHARD ST
NEW YORK CITY, NY

-ANOTHER DEAD COMEDIAN-

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,
Blight the Clown
