Some Things Just Shouldn't Happen


I wanted to wait a while to blog about, "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the long Title". It's been a week so here it goes.
It's been almost 20 years since the last Indy movie. I wasn't really expecting a whole lot, but this one was a little bit on the weird side for me. I mean, there were animated gophers and the janitor from Scrubs, not to mention the alien at the end!!!That's what ruined the movie for me.

There was almost everything you wanted from an Indiana Jones movie. There were action scenes, ancient ruins, humor, slimy creatures and the fedora. It was missing things. For one, Sallah was M.I.A. Also, there were no Nazis. I guess because it took place in 1957.

I'm not totally bagging on the movie. I'm glad they brought back the lady from Raiders. I also liked the way they tied in some aspects from the tv show ( Indy hung out with Poncho Villa). I even liked the relationship between him and his son, even though I HATE Shia La Whatever with a passion.

Then of course was the aliens. Really?!, George and Steven, aliens?! I know they're both sci-fi guys, but you don't bring aliens into an Indiana Jones movie. I wish they would have made the movie ten years ago, (Like they were supposed to do in the first place) and made the movie set in WWII where Indy and his friend, Mac were double agents. That would have been a more awesome movie.

I'm done venting.

Haiku Time

Paddy runs away
Ooongatz is gonna eat you
Oh, run Paddy run

If you've got a silly haiku. I would like to hear it!

Here's the movie one more time

Friday, May 23, 2008


A lot of people have asked me where I get my ideas from when I make an Ooongatz movie. I try to be as original as possible. There is a Teen Girl Squad aspect to it. My ideas also come from South Park and probably every children's book out there. My main inspiration (even though I don't really show it) for the movies was older Peanuts comic strips from the 50s.

I checked out a book from the library about Charles Shultz and just started looking at the artwork. I saw how basic their faces looked way back when he started. My original plan was to make a comic book, but to make it look like a five year old wrote it. Then, after I drew the pictures, I decided to make it into a little movie.

My next inspiration was an accident. This happened when I originally wanted to make it into a comic book. There was an episode of The Simpsons where Bart created a comic book called, "Angry Dad". In the comic, Homer was out of model in every picture. That's when I decided that it was going to look like a child wrote it.

While I was creating the first one, half way through, I was just thinking that this was gonna be like a low budget Teen Girl Squad. That's something that I just didn't want. Then after I watched it a few times, I realized that it was different.

So here's the movie again. Watch it! It'll make you feel good.

And here is a response.

The New Movie Is Only Mostly Finished.

I hope Rob Reiner and Billy Crystal don't kill me. The title for this blog is a play on words from a line in The Princess Bride ("He's Only Mostly Dead"). For the first time ever, I am unhappy with my movie. I'm done with it. the movie just looks a little on the sloppy side.

Even though the point of these movies is to make it look like a five year old made them, I want to make sure that it's edited just right, all of the timing is right on, and I want to make sure the music fits the scenes. So what I'm gonna do is show it around before I put it on the internet. I want to see what other people think about it. If I get a positive reaction, I'll get it up by Monday. If not, It'll be up and running later next week.

This morning I got done with it around 3:00. I rushed the past couple of days because I just wanted to be done with it. Like I said in a previous post, I've been wanting to make this movie since Jamuary. I had the script done in January or February. I really didn't feel the desire to make the movie until now.

The Glorious Picnic came out in August. Down with the Sickness came out in November. Christmas with Paul Wallace / Paddy's Christmas Carol came out in December. Five months later, Ooongatz Goes Hollywood will finally see the light of day.

Coming This Summer To An Internet Near You.

Since January, I've been working on a new Ooongatz movie. The script was already done and all I had to do was draw the pictures. I've been lazy and the desire just was not there to make a new movie. Last night all of that changed. I ended up drawing 60 pictures on 30 pieces of paper. Since the hard work is now done, I just have a few things to do. It should be done in the next week or too.

So here's what's going on for the fans out there. It's a story based on ideas from me and my cool friends, Amy and Nathan. Ooongatz goes crazy in Holllywood., which means there are also going to be a bunch of celebrities ranging from Alec Baldwin to Richard Holt. That's about it.

The Problems With DTV

So I've had my DTV converter box for about a month now because I don't have cable or direct tv, and since then I have had problems with the signal. I don't really know if it has to do with the weather or not. First off, Sometimes the show I'll be watching will be scrambled. Also, I can't get channel 9 in at all. Which sucks because I am not able to watch the old episodes of Scrubs. I don't like to go online to watch tv. So if anybody knows anything about this sort of thing, comment me back.

Adventures in Youtubia

I found this on Youtube. All I did was type in Lil' Kitty and this is what came up....

Wednesday, May 14, 2008


What is this world coming to. Yesterday at about 2:15, I walked into Taco Bell because I was hungry and I needed to eat on the way to work. Then I waited in line for about a minute and realized that I forgot my wallet at home. So off to work I went. Then I get on my bike and it was completely flat. I had just pumped some air in my tire before I left home. Then I looked at my tire and saw a razor blade hanging outside of the tire. The cool thing was, I was only gone for a minute.

Wasn't it a year ago when rival "party crews" got into a "party crew" fight. Ten years ago Downey wasn't that bad. Now I gotta go and get some special tires for my bike? This shouldn't happen. Let me rephrase myself. This shouldn't be allowed to happen. As my boss said, while the girl I worked with got pregnant, "everybody makes mistakes".

Go Speed Racer Go

I don't remember the Speed Racer cartoon that well, My dad rented some of the old episodes for me on video back in the day. That was his favorite cartoon. All I really remember from the original cartoon was a race and a kid and a monkey hiding in the trunk.

So the other night I went to see the new movie Speed Racer. Judging by the trailers, I thought it was going to be just another remake to get today's kids intrested. It was made by the guys who made The Matrix so I thought it was going to be intresting to see how they made it, plus John Goodman's in it so it's gotta be worth seeing.

The movie blew my freaking mind. Let me just tell ya it was incredible. It had a good story. They used good actors (except for Racer X. I'm not a huge Party of Five fan). The effects were wow! They used some of the original music. I guess the only way it could be any better is if I was tripping on LSD or E. It was good PG fun.

*NOTE- I have never tried or tripped on LSD or E. I've just heard cool things about them.

Adventures in Childhood

In life there are certain things that teachers give us that doesen't really click until about ten years after you graduate from high school. This is one of those things. My high school government/economics teacher, Mr. Doty would always give us this piece of advise, "This is your childhood I I. Soon you'll be eighteen, and this is now your childhood I I". Out of all my years of growing up, that is just something that would always stick. Even now, ten years later.

I have come to realize that I never had much of a childhood growing up. My dad always barked out orders at me. My mom was always there for me, no matter what the circumstances were, but I don't think I have ever connected with them.

I never had a lot of real friendships growing up. My parents thought it would be cool to put me in D.J.A.A. (Downey Junior Athletics Association), and I had a few friends on my team, but nobody I really hung out with. Scratch that. There was Daniel Duke. He always looked out for me. I don't know why, he always seemed to be there for me. Some time in middle school our friendship kind of drifted away. There was also Nick Allen. He wasn't on my team but he was my friend, but in middle school our friendship driffted away.

I wonder why that is. You become best friends with somebody and then the friendship just fades away. I think there's a point in the friendship where either you or the friend becomes cool or something and it just kind of fizzles out. There was only one point in my life where I was the "cool" friend.

There was this group I hung out with in high school for about two and a half years (most of my high school life). The group consisted of a bunch of "A+" students who were really into science and math (you would think some of that rubbed off on me, well it didn't). We got along pretty well, but I never hung out with them outside of school and all we ever did was talk about The Simpsons, Top Gun, Star Wars, The X-Files, and Married with Children. Those conversations just got repetative. Sometimes I wouldn't hang out with them at all and I ended up wandering around campus trying to find some new "friends".

So one day I wandered where all of the cool people were. Then, I had an insane crazy thought in my head. What if I just came by and hung out. Sorry girls, This is where it gets a little graphic. I felt my balls growing and I did something a nobody like me would never do, I kind of just started hanging out with the cool kids. The jocks. A while back this guy, Jeremy Sclitinhart told me jokingly that I should hang out with him and his friends. I don't think either one of us took him seriously. I ended up hanging out over there. Nobody seemed upset. I feel that they were just suprised that I would have the balls to go and hang out with them. They were actually really cool to me and for the first time in a long time I felt accepted.

I got to even hang out a few times with these guys. I went to a few parties with them. We hung out after school. Out of all of this madness, I became really good friends with the infamoous Jeff Barrick. Then, he asked me one day if I wanted to go to church with him and I ended up making more friends. Some of those friends I still have today.

Sorry for the Jason Parks sized blog. I am actually thinking about writting a book. It will be called, "Manchild- The Story of the World's Oldest Child".
