movie #11 - National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation

so today we shot the National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation photo for the month of December in the upcoming calendar. miss kate funk was really excited since this is her all-time favorite christmas movie. i got to play the awesome Randy Quaid, sans a glass of whiskey - which we discovered from the last shoot that i am not a big fan of. we actually got a shot right away since my modeling skills are constantly improving. so there's not much to show from the shoot. here i am before the shoot. i was waiting for miss kate to leave because i really wanted to eat the trees on the set, but she kept guard over them the whole time. super lame.

so we've only got one photo to go. and it's the one i've been dreading since i'm not a huge fan of cross-dressing. there are sure to be lots of good photos from that one, though, since every time kate and jay try on my costume they can't stop laughing at me. ugh.


movie #10 - Animal House

so we took the photos for Animal House today! i got to be the beloved character, John Blutarsky, in his famous pose. sadly, we discovered that unlike miss kate funk - i am not a lover of the Jack Daniel's. due to my inability to hold a bottle of whiskey we had to get creative on this one and kate had to make me a fake arm. the effect didn't really work out that well - but it still looks pretty hilarious.
anyways - here's some photos from the shoot of me not cooperating and a close-up of my very fancy fake arm covered in catnip.

talk to you later dudes.


movie #9 - Rosemary's Baby

so miss kate funk finished up another calendar photo today (we're just flying through these now). it wasn't a whole lot of work on my part - since i didn't have to wear a costume, just pose. and she did cheat and use photoshop for the first time ever - which she seems to feel guilty about. but she really wanted to do Rosemary's Baby for the Halloween photo. she loves all things fall and Halloween, and Rosemary's Baby is one of her all-time favorite horror films, so after lots of hemming and hawing she decided to go for it. We can't show you anything from the shoot - since there was very little going on. but i'm pretty sure you all know where we're going with this.
onto the next...


movie #8 - The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

so we just finished up shooting for the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. miss kate funk had actually never seen it before, but wanted an excuse for me to wear my brand new fancy cowboy hat. she had to go out and rent and watch it first. it was much better than we both expected, neither of us being western movie fans. kate grew up with her dad watching westerns all the time, but this was the first time she actually sat down and watched one all the way through. plus a younger Clint Eastwood wasn't awful to look at for 2 and a half hours (her words - not mine).
anways. there aren't too many photos from the shoot to show, since i did awesome this time. she didn't even need a helper i was so good.
here is a photo of me looking very manly with my hat, though, that mister jay took.

onto the next...


renegade recap

so miss kate funk and mr. brennan returned this last sunday from the renegade craft fair in chicago with lots of awesome-ness to share with me. i hear it was the best so far for sales and everyone loved the new photos of me from the upcoming calendar. the strange part is that they left with a car packed to the ceiling with things and the one thing they both forgot was a camera, so there was little to show me from the actual fair. kate did snap this one photo from her phone of the awesome show put on by mucca pazza. they made a stop right in front of her tent. she couldn't get out any further to see them with the crowds - but i hear it ruled.

she did come back with a bunch of awesome purchases (although nothing for me for once. lame. last year she was next to a cat toy booth, but they weren't there this year.)
here's some of what she got:

an amazing shirt by fuzzy ink

more awesome coasters from her friends at the found

and some awesome cards by dude and chick

movie #7 - Half Baked

heya peoples!
so i had the honor this morning of playing Brian from the super 100% awesome movie, Half Baked, for another photo for our calendar. it was so much work. here's me taking a rest afterwards.

i got to wear this super ugly but super delicious Jerry Garcia's ashes satchel mister jay and miss kate made for me. it was kinda distracting while we were trying to shoot and kate had to keep pulling it outta my mouth. but once we were done she let me chew on it for awhile. so good.
