2012 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 2,900 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 5 years to get that many views.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 4,600 times in 2011. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 4 trips to carry that many people.

Demo Reel

This is my first attempt at a demo reel, it’s composed of motion graphics I’ve done for various clients (mostly pro-bono). Most of the clips are presented at twice their normal speed so none of the original audio from said clips is used.

All my “Topps-themed” videos can be found here:

The “Panini Unwrapped” and “Beckett Box Busters” bumpers can be found on their respective videos although the motion graphics are presented in their entirety (sans audio and normal speed) below:

Jake’s Gypsy Queen haul

First post in over a month, school will do that.

So here is what Jake got out of two boxes of Unconscious Rape Fantasy Fulfillment (URFF)

Photobucket

/10, not the best stamp, Arkansas has older stamps, like:
Photobucket
1936

Or,
Photobucket
1968

He got another one:

Photobucket
pretty good stamp selection there.

He got 2 Leather minis
Photobucket
Photobucket
both /10

and some autos/mem

Photobucket
Photobucket
Photobucket
Photobucket

Plus Youkilis and Werth jersey cards I didn’t feel like uploading

The BIG MOJO however were the two following ACTUAL GYPSYS:
Photobucket

Adara is a bad Gypsy, Olga is kind of plain looking.  If you look in the upper middle of the scan, you can see how when you put two of these “Gypsy Queen” cards together how it forms the faint crucifixion symbolism.

Video to come

2011 Sage Big Time Alien Skulls

2011 Sage has a weird insert called “Big Time”, with all sorts of embedded vulgarities and other such strangeness.  (See video):

Here is the preview image for the card I was zooming in on in the video:

Zoomed in:

Its like an alien skull or something, freaky!

Here’s an equalized (in Photoshop) version:

SKULL!
