What Others Are Creating #003
Good Friday morning! It’s the end of the week and we have a long three day weekend ahead of us (well, for most people in the states). Before you leave Friday completely in the dust, take a look at some of the stuff these people are creating. Perhaps you’ll find a new favorite or something to inspire you in your own creative work.
Rob Paravonian – http://www.RobPRocks.com – Rob Paravonian is a comedy musician based in New York. He writes hilariously funny songs that prove the point: comedy music can be funny AND catchy! Head over to his Bandcamp page where you can download some free samples to check him out. Not only is he using his music to entertain, he’s using it to educate! He’s got a new series of songs called Tip Songs that actually teach you how to do stuff. Want to learn how to tie a bow tie or eight click on your mouse? Go check out Rob’s instructional videos and he’ll bust some knowledge on you. Finally, if you are a fan of the TV show Mad Men, check out this video that Rob edited together of every tracking shot in the show set to a hilarious song about ending with a tracking shot. Rob is a funny guy and it is well worth your time to check him out.
Space Casey – http://www.SpaceCasey.com – Back around 2008, I was asked by fellow Podcaster, Christiana Ellis, to lend a voice to a project she created called SPace Casey. It’s a science fiction adventure that won a Parsec Award and a Gold Mark Time Award forScience Fiction Audio Drama. Well, Christiana is back with a whole new SPace Casey adventure! Head on over to the Space Casey website at http://www.SpaceCasey.com and subscribe so you don’t miss a moment of the fun. I was honored to be asked to reprise my role in this sequel so I got a sneak peek at the story. It’s great!
Kristina Ruiz – http://www.etsy.com/shop/mAdELmOaRt – Kristina Ruiz is someone I met through the social media service Vine. Well, I guess I met her though my close personal friend Uncle Interloper but, never-the-less, I met her through Vine. She is hilarious, a great mother to her kids and a really amazing painter. The cool thing about Kristina using Vine is that she often posts Vines of the progress on her paintings and they are super cool. She’s got an Etsy shop which I highly recommend you take a minute or so to browse. Lots of fun stuff. I especially like her paintings inspired by Pixar’s UP. Definitely take a look at those ones.
That’s it for this week. I’m always on the look out for new projects to feature so if you have something your working on and you’d like me to check it out for inclusion here, please let me know about it in the comments below! Have a good weekend!
