GREAT MOMENTS IN PHOTOSHOP EXCELLENCE 03 - “BLINKING JAPANESE PHONE BOOTH”
Question: Do I regret wasting twenty-seven consecutive hours creating this animated GIF in photoshop?
Answer: No way, it’s sooooooooo awesome.
Question: Do I regret missing Vicki’s 30th birthday bowling party to create this GIF?
Answer: No comment.
Question: Does my black eye hurt?
Answer: Maybe.
Question: Seriously, was making this GIF worth it?
Answer: Not really. I actually start to get sick if I stare at it for too long. Ughh… make it stop!
Anyway, my main man Nick just wrote a really cool story about the photo behind this GIF for a new website called SAINT LUCY. If you like photography, creative writing, and/or Baltimore definitely check it out!
Oh, and my main man Nick also just started a Tumblr of original artwork inspired by the hit 90’s television show Beverly Hills 90210. It’s called West Beverly High Art Club, definitely check it out as the artwork is quite impressive. Also, I believe that they are accepting submissions, so you may wanna think about digging up that charcoal drawing you did of Luke Perry’s misty eyes in 1995.

RIGBY IN JAPAN 01 - “RABBIT RIDIN’ RIGBY”
Yep, it’s true, we shoved Rigby in a suitcase and dragged him to Japan. He immediately became obsessed with Japanese game shows and rarely left our hotel room. This unfortunately means that he was not in too many photos. However, he made a brief public appearance once he heard about our new rabbit friend. Rigby’s a lover, not a hater, and he especially loves other animals that may, or may not, be real (much like himself). RIGBY IN JAPAN 01 - “RABBIT RIDIN’ RIGBY”

COOL STUFF IN JAPAN 19 - “LITTLE SHRIMP CREATURE FROM HELL”
This was the only worthwhile picture that I took while inside the Kochi aquarium and it took FOREVER because…
a. Vicki couldn’t hold the damn magnifying glass still
b. The little shrimp creature from hell wouldn’t stay still
c. I couldn’t figure out how to focus my my damn camera
Answer: Definitely not “c”, but I’m torn between “a” and “b”.
Also, I can neither confirm nor deny that this creature is in fact a shrimp. But what I can confirm is this… it is certainly, without a doubt, from HELL!!! COOL STUFF IN JAPAN 19 - “LITTLE SHRIMP CREATURE FROM HELL”

COOL STUFF IN JAPAN 16 - “COOL COWBOYS LIVE IN OLD MOVIES”
This sign was so awesome, yet so confusing, all at the same time. Here’s how our little sign adventure went down…
Me: “I’m so confused? Is this sign pro-smoking or anti-smoking? I think it’s gotta be anti-smoking, right? But at the same time it’s making me want to smoke, so I’m not sure what to think. I’m torn Vicki… I’m a torn man.”
Vicki: “Good grief torn man! It’s not even about smoking! It’s about littering.”
Me: “Really, I don’t think so, I’m pretty sure it’s definitely about smok”
Vicki (yelling): “IT’S SO OBVIOUS!!!”
At this point I give Vicki a grumpy look and then proceed to closely examine the sign for about thirty seconds.
Me: “Hmmm… I see what you’re saying, but the question nonetheless remains… is it pro-littering or anti-littering? As such, I remain a torn man.”
Vicki: “AGGHHHHHHH!!!!!!”
An awkward silence ensues. After a minute or so I break the tension with this little gem…
Me: “So, whaddya think the odds are of us actually finding chicken teriyaki today?”
At this point Vicki threw her cup of coffee at me.
Me: “Looks like someone is living in an old movie!”
Vicki (reluctantly): “Okay… that’s actually kind of funny.” COOL STUFF IN JAPAN 16 - “COOL COWBOYS LIVE IN OLD MOVIES”

BOX FULL OF AWESOME
No, they’re not mogwais, but still, pretty damn cute. My only gripe is that I wish the one in yellow was wearing blue so they could be named Alvin, Simon, and Theodore.
Also, thank you everyone for your brilliant replies to my previous post where I asked the following question…
"At what point after midnight does it become safe to feed a mogwai?"
Although I received several different ideas and suggestions, they all seem to suggest that an 8am pancake breakfast with a mogwai would be safe. What a relief! Thank you! BOX FULL OF AWESOME

WHALEORAMA DIORAMA
As I was walking through Kochi Castle in my socks I stumbled upon this rather incredible diorama. Even if you’re a die-hard animal rights activist you’ve gotta admit two things…
1. This diorama is better than any diorama you’ve ever made.
2. Their teamwork is better than any teamwork you’ve ever had.
Here’s a few more pictures…

STING RAY SUPER TUBE OF MINNOW MAGIC
Had one of these things existed when I was a kid my head would literally have exploded from “awesome overload”.
Seriously, I’m an old married dude and as I was walking through this tunnel I could literally feel the “awesome meter” in my brain getting close to the danger zone. Had a shark swam by in a Santa Hat my brain literally would have exploded and Vicki literally would have killed me. STING RAY SUPER TUBE OF MINNOW MAGIC

CRAZY CHRISTMAS DOLPHIN SHOW IN TOKYO!!!
Normally I try to boycott dolphin shows as I believe that they (dolphins) are way to cool for captivity. However, when I saw the dolphin trainers walking by in amazing Santa suits all of my deep convictions about dolphin captivity flew right out the blow hole. Do I feel bad about watching the show… yep. Did I enjoy the show… hell yep. Do I think dolphins should be kept in swimming pools… hell no. Am I a big hypocrite… hell yep.
Anyway, here’s a bunch of photos from the most cheerful dolphin show ever. 80’s American Pop Music was blaring the whole time, it was a feel good fun time for all (except maybe not for the dolphins).
