Random Ridiculousness

It's a slow news day, and I'm in a self-deprecating humor kinda mood, so I'm posting to bring you this inanity/insanity:

First, a love poem. "Ode to Val (Eau de Val)", by Shep Broke-Bayfield:


Hallmark Cards, call me. We'll talk.

Next, a happy-happy joy-joy pic of the Broke-Bayfield boys.


A little behind-the-scenes action, showing what it took to get that picture. I call this one "Sim Whack-a-Mole". The final "Kab frabbat!" kills me, every time.

In other uninteresting news (yet a departure from the potty humor), I changed my YouTube layout to match my site!

So I lied.

I am reviving this blog, because I need a non-Sims outlet.

I have nothing to say at the moment, unfortunately. I'll ponder a bit and see if any of those ideas I had running around my brain when I decided to reopen this blog will make a return appearance. Right now, they're AWOL. So, you're stuck with this.

Am I rambling? I feel like I'm rambling.

ACuppaJoe Productions

Anyone visiting my site in the last couple of days probably saw a lot of pages being yanked, put back up, redesigned, etc.

Obviously, ACuppaJoe has undergone a pretty drastic makeover. Not only did the name change to ACuppaJoe Productions (to focus more on the videos), but it now has a whole new look. Once I finally got the index page the way I wanted it, I got to work on the rest. CJ Cinema is done. Links...almost done. Still need some formatting. About Me is done. Ask Joe is making me want to pull my hair out. That page is not public, yet.

I'm tired, a bit cranky, and a lot headachy, so, before I finish up the "Ask Joe" page, I'm going to pop a few Excedrin and lie down.

I have to give a shoutout to Sinfully Liz for helping me out with the css!

It's funny how I'll get into a rut with videos, think I've lost the inspiration to do any more, and then BAM! I'll get into the zone. Right out of the blue. That's pretty much what happened with my latest video, "Only", by Nine Inch Nails.

This is a video I'd been envisioning for some time, but didn't get past the planning/brainstorming stage until day before yesterday. I was in a bit of a blue mood, and feeling restless, so I decided to try to film a few clips and see where it went. I wasn't committed to it, and thought I'd scrap whatever I did. Instead I stayed up all night working on it, from 8:30 pm until 9 am the next day. I uploaded the video to YouTube, and posted it at Cuppa Joe.

Then I took a nap.

When I awoke, I watched the video, again, and knew it wasn't as good as it could have been. So I yanked it off YouTube, took the link down from my forum, and did some more editing. This is typical of me. I work until I can't see straight, and prematurely put up a video. With a fresh perspective, I reshot a few new scenes. I turbo-charged it.

I think I'm done.

A Sim's Life updated

I have added a few entries to my Sim's Life blog. You can start here, with Scott and Val's wedding. Yes, that's right;I've decided to make my sims have a more "traditional" relationship. Which isn't to say it's without its quirks, of course. The quirks make it interesting!

Be sure to read the "accidents happen", honeymooners, and cheesecake entries. You definitely don't want to miss those!

I really hope to get a new video out, soon. There are two that I'm itching to make. I seemed to have lost my creative spark, however. Hopefully it will reignite, soon. Going through a bit of depression, so that's put a damper on things.

Maybe I need another trip to Zaxby's?
