Our goal for the month of April was to create a promotional video for the Orange County Breast Cancer Fundraiser event, and that’s just what we did. The video showed at the event, with emotional and monetary response (I hope).

The Ten Thousand Dollar Mustache

It’s an interesting thing that women will never understand. I don’t even fully get it. But it’s you’re friend. It’s there, in front, leading the way. A twirling confidante in times of introspection and a member of the Moen family.


My producer at work suggested I meet his boyfriend, a casting director in LA, saying he could help get me a commercial acting agent. Which brought me to one of those times of introspection and questioning — How much would it take, in a professional setting, for me to shave my mustache.

Dick’s Sewage

Posted by jeff | Posted in Resourceful Living, Winnebago Experience | Posted on 14-05-2009

Dick’s learned to hold in his urine. And he can hold it a long time now.

May Film Shoot – “The Man Date” Recap

Posted by jeff | Posted in Filmmaking | Posted on 10-05-2009


Five months, five shoots. Five scripts/stories/projects to stretch ourselves. And we keep moving. This month, we attempted to make a comedy.

In the year of the Hobo, we continue to steam-roll along, creating something every month. So far…we’re still in post on our February and March projects, but we continue to shoot and those pieces are coming along well.

“How To Make A Corn Bomb After Flyfishing”

Posted by vern | Posted in Friends, Video | Posted on 01-05-2009

Recently myself and some friends went up to beautiful Oakhurst, CA so that I could (possibly) purchase a 1974 Ford Bronco from Matt Wignall’s dad.

In addition to buying manly cars, we went flyfishing, shot guns, panned for gold, drank beer, smoked cigars, and — since we were there with Master Corn Bomber Paul Wignall — we got a first hand introduction to the wonderful world of Corn Bombs.

Here’s the video:
