Merry Christmas!

So I am in Boston, which has just been hit with a metric ass-load of snow.

Just felt like posting on here since I hadn't done so in a while....

I wanted to chime in on this whole "War on Christmas" thing....

As a Catholic...I celebrate the birth of Christ by going to church on Christmas Eve, and then spend Christmas day meeting up with friends and family to celebrate a time when everyone has the day off and can get together and eat and drink and be merry.

Honestly...I have never been offended by anyone saying "Happy Holidays"...moreso...I completely understand when multi-billion dollar corporations like Macy's or Walmart say "Happy Holidays" instead of "Merry Christmas" because its more of a catch-all for ALL of their customers... some of which may not celebrate Christmas...this may be difficult for some people to understand...but there are all sorts of ways to celebrate the holidays...does this mean that Walmart hates Christ? Don't be ridiculous.

So the war on Christmas is really just crap made up by people looking for a reason to complain. If you are a Christian...say "Merry Christmas!" But also be open and receptive to all others...this is a time when we can all come together for the "holiday season".

And please...if someone say's "Happy Holidays" to you...don't be an asshole and correct them about the fact that you celebrate Christmas. They were trying to be pleasant and offer you good cheer in a time when people are going homeless, families are going hungry, and jobs are becoming harder and harder to find. We all celebrate the way we want to. Just be pleasant back to them and respond "You too!" And smile for God sake''s Christmas!

Merry Christmas! Happy New Year!

A whole freakin year...

Yes, it's been over a year since I last posted.

I suppose that it would be good to let you all know what I have been up to, since that is really what keeping a blog is really all about.

I started my own production company, octobertwenty productions inc.. I have directed two projects so far...a music video for a band called "Maika" and a set of puppet-clips for a show called "Bunraker".

The video will be online soon...we are in legal dealings and trying to get all the distribution figured out...then we will get it up and running.

The puppet-clips can be found by searching YouTube for "Bunraker" or go to: or

It's pretty cool. I have also been working with friends to develop a few new projects, so we shall see if those go somewhere.

All in all, it's been a very very busy year.

I will keep you posted...hopefully more frequently than my last post...hah...
