Bud Fallbrook 2.0

New Bud Fallbrook

Hello Friends!

I hope everyone is safe and healthy and doing the best they can to help each other. Yes, that’s the “new” me on the right and the old me on the left. What happened? Kind of a lot really.

A few years ago, the “old” Bud kind of had a shot at actually getting on real television, on a network we can’t name, but let’s just say it shows a lot of cartoons. That led to all kinds of delays, dashed hopes, “exclusive” lockdowns and sometimes less-than-cool behavior. So the project kind of died.

In the meantime, real life got busier for our overlords at Blunt Farce, much too busy to spend hours and hours animating me (for no money,) and I pretty much became a “good idea that never really got off the ground.” But now, with the world “on hold” and more free time/unemployment, it looks like I’ll be coming to life again soon, back on the Blunt Farce Youtube Channel, with a new look, a new format and some new friends.

But why the “new look” ??

Believe me, it wasn’t my idea. The company that makes the animation software used to create me decided to “pivot” away from being a platform for serious cartooning and instead morph into something simpler and more suitable for sales and marketing presentations… but they have also added a lot of interesting functionality that wasn’t available a few years ago when we made our original episodes. To my way of thinking (and the BF overlords agree) that just makes this kind of “vanilla” imagery all the more ripe for subversion.

Be Safe & Stay Tuned !

Updates and a new Highly Rated Video.

Hello Everyone!

Thank-you for your continued patience and support. The overlords at Blunt Farce have been dealing with some technical problems with the long-awaited Episode 5, but I’m told they are working feverishly to get back on track. Meanwhile I’ve been flattered by more and more people finding/friending me on Facebook and on Twitter… which makes me feel like I’ve really been dropping the ball when it comes to posting new material, musings or related silliness… so I’m going to try to do better.

…and why not start with a new “Highly Rated Video Pick” like this one?

Very enjoyable when in the right frame of mind.

Six Figures. Sweet.

Thanks to everyone who has watched and shared and tweeted and reposted the episodes so far. The overlords at BluntFarce tell me they are hard at work animating the next episode!!

New Year. Still Here. Hear Hear !

Wow and hey. We’re nearly a week deep into the brand-new year and it is already shaping up to be a great one. Episode 4 has been released into the wilds of youtubery and has so far gotten some nice feedback. Meanwhile all VO for episode 5 has been recorded. I don’t know if they’ve edited the audio all down yet, but I’m told they’ve started doing some animation tests. Should be a good episode. The corporate overlords at Blunt  Farce also tell me that they’ve had some tiny tiny bits of interest from some bigger fish. I don’t know what that means exactly, but I assume it is a good thing since they were smiling when they said it.

All I can say is thank-you for such a great 2011. Connecting with old friends and new fans on Facebook and Twitter has been a treat. I thank everyone for every repost, retweet and external link that has helped get the cartoons to more and more people. I hope everyone feels like I have adequately returned such favors. I DO love telling my friends about other cool stuff that you are all doing… so keep up the creativity and sharing… It is still a big world out there and it needs to be filled with joy and magic, and yeah, I might be a little bit ‘medicated’ as I type this.

As for 2012 resolutions, I’m going to try to post more regularly here on the this website. I had no idea people actually wait to see -and share- my “Highly Rated Video Picks” …so I promise there will be more of those. I also resolve to get better at twitter and to really start expanding on that. …but most importantly I’m hoping we can crank out new episodes of the cartoon at more regular intervals.

I hope we ALL have a great 2012.

Me. You. Blunt Farce and…

my beloved HANSHIN TIGERS  !!

July

Getting warmer here. All voices for the next two episodes have been recorded so now it  is up to the folks at Blunt Farce to put the cartoons & music together. Hopefully soon. Meanwhile I’m enjoying the Summer and enjoying the suggestions people are writing in for possible new “Highly Rated Video picks.” wow. Lots of great suggestions and, of course, a few who miss the boat completely. ah well. So here is my latest Highly Rated Video Pick… that a friend forwarded to me.

Very enjoyable when in the right frame of mind.

A new “Highly Rated” Video pick.

We’re (finally) hard at work on both episodes 4 and 5. It is looking like they’ll be a little bit shorter than our usual 5-6 minute magnum opuses. It is exciting to be back to work – so I’ll be keeping you all posted on that.

In the meantime, how about a little trippy eye-candy? …Here is what happens when you attach a videocam to a hula-hoop. Awesome.

Very enjoyable when in the right frame of mind.
