Epic RPG Quest

2012-09-05 19:56:36 by sirjeffofshort

For anyone who might be interested in such a thing, I have decided to embark on what I am calling the "Epic RPG Quest." My goal being to collect and play every singe RPG ever made for the original Playstation game system.

I have compiled a list of 68 games with an estimated retail pricing of 2,601 dollars that I plan on accumulating over time.

For anyone who finds this an interesting or confusing bit of insanity, I have decided to chronicle the entire process as well as my personal reflections here...

http://epicrpgquest.blogspot.com/

At the moment it is a lot of exposition as to how we got to the point we are at, as well as a single personal reflection on Final Fantasy VII, however I will be adding to it as my story unfolds.

I am not setting out to review these games, but rather to chronicle my personal experiences in collecting and playing them as well as the journey of self discovery and reflection that it brings about. So although this is mostly something I'm doing for myself, I figured I'd throw it out there for any interested parties to check out.

So stop by if you feel like reading about it or leaving your own story behind a particular game. If it's not your bag of cheese (a phrase I just made up but will be using a lot from now on) then you are probably a much cooler person than I.

Luckily I live in L.A. now and the rest of my family is fine but still... Tornadoes in Mass? Pure insanity.

UPDATE!

The above video states that the tornado started in Westfield, the town I went to College in.

My home town got FUCKED UP!



A friend of mine and writer on a number of my ventures (Both animated and non) has begun a podcast. In stark contrast to the many podcasts on the market which deal with either pretentious know it all's trying to solve the worlds problems or people giving their opinion on the latest pop culture or nerd news, Karl's podcast is focused entirely on feces.

Interesting stories of people pooping themselves, farting in inappropriate places and any other such bathroom business. It is for these reasons (coupled with the fantastic hosts themselves) that I find this show hilarious and needed to share it with the world.

Check it out if you are a true fecalfeliac at heart and perhaps if you have an interesting poop story of your own you can contact them for a future show.


Wondercon!

San Francisco! I figure it's a free ticket so why not... I'll be there this weekend along with Bill Rinaldi. Not promoting anything this time around, so we'll mostly just be wandering the floor.

I'll also most likely have my 3DS with me with my copy of Streetfighter 4 3D in, so if you are there under the same circumstances there is a chance we will "Streetpass" and Fight... or something... I don't know, I'm terrible at streetfighter... but getting my ass handed to me has never looked so good!

So, that's all from me, anyone else planning on being there?



Hey everyone, just letting you know I put out a new cartoon...

Long story short, I was asked by author Neil Strauss to create a cartoon based off of his new book "Everyone Loves You When You're Dead." He told me that he had audio recordings of numerous celebrities that had never before been released from various projects that he would love to see animated. We decided to do Rick James to start however if the response goes well we may be doing more.

Check it out and let us know what you think!

A friend of mine made a funny little youtube mashup of Charlie Sheen stuff and I figured I'd share.

Network Pitch & Other Big News

Here it is. The two big bits of news for the first quarter of this year in one single news post!

First off... Next week Bill and I will be going in to pitch a new show to Nickelodeon. I'm not sure how it will go as we've never been this focused on a show for younger audiences before, however it seems that we've got a really good concept that (we think) will play to all audiences much like the Nick classics that we still love to this day.

Second off (and a more tangible bit of news) I have been working with actor Joe Lo Truglio (if you don't recognize the name, click the link, odds are you may know who I'm talking about.) for the past few months to create two new show ideas which we will be recording within the first half of February. They are both shows with a very strong emphasis on horror, comedy and an extremely dark facade. You can also expect to hear a few VERY familiar voices throughout each series... updates on that as they come. As these pilots progress I will keep you guys updated and even though they may not end up on Newgrounds I will be sure to get you guys as much content as possible this year.

So that is what I have been wasting my time with for the last few months. I do promise though that with the help of some fantastic animators out there we will try to bring more Sketched to NG as soon as possible.

Sketched WILL return! (Anyone want to animate?)

2011-01-18 13:46:59 by sirjeffofshort

SO THE NEWS IS that after a year of making the rounds about town, the Sketched property is now officially 100% mine again. Although the show did not get picked up it DID open the doors for some new work... but that's not what I'm here about right now.

I have decided to return Sketched to the internet. That's not to say that it'll never be seen on television, but I would personally rather keep breathing life into it via internet installments rather than let it die while making the rounds. Perhaps in the future I will seek a sponsor for it, but for now I think we'll just keep on the track we had been going before it was picked up.

HERE'S THE CATCH! As I mentioned before, the events of the past year have opened up the doors for several amazing projects for those of us on the sketched crew. (AMAZING projects that I will announce as soon as I have the go ahead to do so, I promise) For this reason, although it will be the same team writing and acting in all of the episodes, I have decided to appoint a good friend, JOSH METZ as the head animator of the Sketched series. In many ways this will likely prove a fantastic move for all parties since he has been helping with the series for over a year now and fully animated my favorite looking episode SOUVENIRS. So we will be recording new episodes soon and you can start expecting them soon.

ON THAT NOTE! I have also decided to open up the series to special guest animators if there are any interested parties. I really only have a handfull of rules when it comes to the animation, you must use the seven mouth style of lip sync rather than just the anime open close style of animation and all tweens (if used) must be broken down into 'two's so that the animation translates well to video. If you're not quite sure what that means I'll be more than happy to explain, it's really pretty easy. Other than that you are in total creative control over how the cartoon looks.

ANYONE INTERESTED IN ANIMATING a sketched episode, drop me a PM with some sample links and I'll let you know. Until we find a sponsor for the series, I am willing to give the animator of an episode 100% adshare revenue of that episode (no lie) as compensation.
