Jonti Picking, the rarely referenced real name of Weebl, has an interview on Samsung.com, about how a daft English guy making Flash toons about mumbling wobbly egg-things can lead to everyone from MTV to makers of toast spread beating down his door for business.
weebl and skoo ride again!
Got back from Austin again — more watching movies with Mark. This one was his idea, but for once, we didn’t go to the Drafthouse. We went to the Dobie Theater instead.
They had a one-week only showing of Tokyo Godfathers. Great flick, if you’re patient enough to read subtitled Japanese anime. Another triumph of great writing, loosely based on the old John Wayne/John Ford western “Three Godfathers,” and great art direction, led by Nobutaka Ike and Mad House, headed by project director Satoshi Kon. (And if you’re not a huge fan of feature-film Japanese animation, those names should mean nothing.)
Remember the story I did about the Alphaville Herald? The guy who was basically running a subversive underground-type site for The Sims Online, name of Urizenus?
Edit: Well, I’m a moron. The old Salon article I referenced way back when said he was a prof in the lead graph. Durr.
(Shamelessly stolen from GBS on the SomethingAwful forums, which I’m trying not to make a habit.)

So I drive down to Austin to see Adam West live at the Alamo Drafthouse, where they’re playing the 1966 “Batman” movie. Hook up with friends Mark and Elan and head downtown. Mark gets a parking spot less than a block away, and is euphoric.
It would be the only time all night any of us felt that way.

Thanks for the heads up. I’ve fixed these. A dozen people have written me
about “fire wire” but you’re the only one to catch the other two.
Glad you liked the teasers.
