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

:::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.

Blight feels the pressure in comic #21!

September 14, 2008

Well Howdy Folks,

Back flippin’ biscuits and jingle jangle spores,
Blight the Clown’s sleepy time and really loud snores,
I made a new comic and I finished just in time,
To post it in the blog after this little rhyme.

:::OTHER NEWS:::

In the spirit of helping promote the art community, here is a trailer for my friend Mario’s (AKA. MaRs Attack!!!) newest film.  Enjoy!

-El REGRESO de LENCHO. Volume 2-TeASER #1-

:::OTHER OTHER NEWS:::

As most of you know, promotion is the most difficult part of being an artist.  I can make stuff all day long, but if no one ever sees it, what’s the point, other than a bit of therapy for the soul.  The challenge as an artist is to make things that people are interested in.  I am not the best mind reader in the world, I have no idea what the world is interested in, so I make things that interest me and hope that it is enough.  I like to think that if I am interested in it, that someone else somewhere else in this great big ball of a planet might find it interesting as well.

In this current age of digital revolution, there are half a million ways to promote your work.  The key is to tap into the right ones.  I really have no idea what the right ones are, so I have tried my best to make some kind of connection with all the networking tools I have been able to access.   The best most reliable connection seems to be a direct email list, but I don’t like to send emails to folks that are not interested in my work; but how are they going to become interested in my work if they have never seen it?

Social networking.  I have tried to make profiles on every damn social networking site that seems worthwhile.  Although, it’s rather hard to figure out what sites are worthwhile and what sites are not.  For links to my various profiles on social networks please click here: BLIGHT PRODUCTIONS SOCIAL NETWORKS.

But I still believe that direct email is the best way to directly keep you informed, so if you are not signed up to the email list, or you know of a friend you think might be interested, please visit the site here :BLIGHT PRODUCTIONS, or send your friends a link to the site: http://www.blightproductions.com.  I got some really cool stuff in the works, so stay tuned.

Your pal,
