Awesome, this is some good news, that I sorely need. My buddy Jason Connell has launched the website for his debut feature film. Jason and I met on the set of a Martin Lawrence movie, Rebound, and began talking about the strange world of extra work. Well, my man Jason ran with the idea and filmed a Freak'n fantastic film all about the shittiest job on a set, the Extra.... or in this case, the Background Artist. So please check out his trailer and support this film. Strictly Background
It's finally happened, ninety-two year old Grandpa Woo is going down fast. The cancer is spreading rapidly and there's nothing anyone can do. I am flying to DC this weeked to pay my last respects... This SUCKS! Anyhow, Woospace might be down for a few days... as the Woo family prepares for the loss of it's great patriarch, Woo Chi Ming. Long live the HUs!!
Okay, if cyclops kitty wasn't a big enough sign of troubles ahead, now Taiwanese scientists say they created flourescent pigs by adding genetic material from jellyfish into a normal pig embryo. These transgenic pigs are freaky... Green Pig BBC Story
The outpouring over this little frail creature has been amazing, so much so, that lil "Cy" has inspired the planet. Here is a beautiful painting in honor of the little cat that is no more.
"Cyclops Kitten" is featured on Yahoo's "Buzz Log" as one of the most searched keywords of the moment, and there are even blogs with poetry dedicated to this strange and delicate creature.
We weep for thee, kitten. Rest in Peace.

The year of the dog is approaching. Here are some weird, wonderful songs about Chinese New Year. For example, one of the songs is called "May All Your Businesses Prosper And Improve". All the songs are in English too, even though it's about Chinese New. These songs are infectious, and you'll want to share them with everyone you know. beautiful songs

I'm here in L.A., where the weather has been warm and I just finished up my time working on a movie called Holiday with Cameron Diaz and Kate Winslet. I know, kind of a strange mix, but I'm sure it will look beautiful, as I work in the art department and have been working hard to make everything look pretty. Next week I'm moving onto a David O. Russel film, with Vince Vaughn, should be interesting. But what I'm most excited about is the work I did on American Dreamz, the new Paul Weitz flick. This one is going to ruffle feathers, which I think is great. Let's put it this way, you've never seen anything quite like this. Check the trailer out here. Let me know what you all think. And by the way, the painting on the back of the newspaper Dennis Quaid is holding is a Woo original... out.
