Taking a page out of Kevin Smith’s book we got a bunch of friends together and had a great time making a movie! We are dropping this flick on July 1st of this year so head on over to our indiegogo to contribute and get your perks now!!
The EMC Monkeys have put together for your viewing pleasure a wonderful Star Wars/Star Trek mashup video. Check it out! Ever wonder how a phaser holds up against a lightsaber? What would Spock use against a Force-Wielder? Could Captain Kirk monologue a Sith to death using boredom? How many Sith does it take to destroy an Enterprise? The answers to some of these questions and more are in this video!!
Well this year was a hat trick for me. My wife and I recently joined up with the Saber Guild, a charity organization that raises money by dressing up as Lightsaber wielders and performing fights!! We were invited to Phat Collectibles by our sister organization The Dark Empire to troop for Free Comic Book Day and troop we did!
As my first event with this organization I had a great time. Taking pictures with kids and hanging with fellow Jedi is a great way for my May the 4th to go! Darth Vader made an appearance and Liz’s Aayla was very popular with the fans. I can’t wait for the next event where we’ll actually be doing a show! In the meantime check out the gallery and don’t forget to visit the links at the bottom! Joining up is a great way to becoming part of a larger world and becoming a real hero.
So did you know I was in a movie? Well, I was. The Oatmeal Man is a hilarious flick about a group of friends who happen upon an unspeakable terror. It’s got laughs, buddies, girls, breakfast, and a gooey monster!! What more could you ask for? Take a look at the new trailer if you don’t believe me.

But if you don’t know what a VHS is you might not be familiar with the ancient art of stop motion.
A relic of a forgotten age
You probably think the scene in Empire is just some old school CG or something stupid. Well guess what? IT’S NOT!! Someone built some badass AT-ATs and Tauntauns, shot them one frame at a time and painstakingly moved them through their actions!! (I’m guessing the current instant gratification generation is thinking “What does painstakingly mean?”) What if someone thought to do an AWESOME fight with stop motion. Someone with fighting skills. Someone who could actually do a cool fight instead of most of the stop motion crap adrift in the sea of mediocrity that is YouTube. Someone like… the EMC Monkeys. Well, then you might end up something you could enjoy watching! So here it is
…. enjoy watching!
Learn well young ones. Stop motion can be a thing of beauty… or hilarity.
