Most of you know that I’m a big fan of The Walking Dead. The past couple of years, I’ve been doing a “parody poster” for the season premieres. You can find the other ones – here and here. I even did TV teasers for Fear The Walking Dead just recently, you can view those here.

This year, I ran out of time but I had seen a web banner I really liked. It is simple so I created it last night and then with the help of Elizabeth, I shot some photos of my self then incorporated one into the design.

Below was my inspiration.

The Walking Dead – my take

by on Oct.18, 2014, under Creativity, Movie/TV Posters, Photography, TV

TWD_M_G_A_FB_CoverI’m a big fan of the AMC’s The Walking Dead. So much that I created some posters much like my other posters.

My sister in law, Maggie and my niece Angelica have indulged me once again. We are all fans of The Walking Dead and I wanted to do another poster commemorating the Season 5 premiere on Sunday Oct 12th.

Maggie was nice enough to let us go to her place in Boerne and shoot some photos. Thankfully, Elizabeth and Emma came along since I needed a photographer since I was to be in the photos.

Below are the fruits of my labor and a bonus. Action G-man! Click on the photos for larger view and use either on arrows on the bottom of pics to navigate or just use your arrow keys on keyboard.

I tried to stay as portable as I could so we just brought some reflectors and speed lights. Here are some of the behind the scenes photos my Emma took as well. Click on them for a larger  view.

Now…onto the season 5!

WHEN WORLDS COLLIDE!

by on Oct.24, 2011, under Creativity, TV

We were sitting having dinner and my little girl (Emmy) was watching one of her Disney shows. It’s called, “Good luck Charlie.”

Premise is about a family  and how their lives are turned upside down with the arrival of a new baby. Teddy, Gabe and P.J. Duncan must care for Charlie Duncan while their parents are busy – from TV.com.

As I was watching the show, I noticed something familiar about the Mom…then it hit me! She’s the woman that was in Will and Grace (comedy series) on NBC that would always lose to Will and Grace in board games or charades.

It took my brain a minute to acknowledge the fact I had recognized her and then the “Brain Freeze” kicked in. Oh…My…God! That’s her!

No one at the table knew what I was laughing about…and probably won’t ever but it sure made the show much funnier since I was thinking about how Grace would “taunt” Leigh Allyn Baker about how they won charades.

Sigh.

There’s something you don’t see every day…

by on Mar.01, 2010, under Humor, TV

So my wife and I were watching the newest episode of The Big Bang Theory and we laughed as the episode chronicled the nerds adventures in meeting their Demi-God, Stan Lee. It’s a good show, you should watch it.

The show ended and I was starting to flip through the channels when I came across a familiar scene.

A balcony view of an arena, in the middle was a big square white canvas surrounded by blue ropes, three to a section attached to four padded poles. You could see the audience cheering the numerous combatants inside the ring. A striped referee bounced from corner to corner.

I noticed platinum blonde hair, curly brown hair, straight black hair, snapping in all direction as short shorts and knee high boots thrashed around the ring.

I realize I have just described the attire of the male wrestler but then I noticed short cropped tops, bulging cleavage, eye shadow and lipstick! It was the WWE show with a female-all-out-fight/match…but with pillows! They were using the pillows as WEAPONS in a badly choreographed fight for the title!

Suddenly I snapped back to reality when I picked up Liz in my peripheral vision. She was craning her neck towards the TV and said, “What, is that?”

Quickly, I recovered and doing my best to feign disinterest, I calmly stated “Hmmm…that’s odd. It’s a pillow fight in the wrestling arena….”

I pursed my lips and raised my arm holding the remote to show I was about to change the channel…it was a tricky move to pull off, but I had to go for it.

“I’ll change it,” I stated, my eyes darted back to her and then to the TV. If I was greeted with the mannequin look**, well, I was ready to bolt like a Gazelle on The Serengeti, when it spots the rapidly approaching cheetah…

But before I could do anything, she yelled, “Wait! Don’t change it!”

I was startled and confused, an inexplicable variable had been introduced to my precarious situation.

She told me to not to change the channel.

I even mouthed the words back to myself to be sure I had heard it right. She didn’t want me to terminate with extreme prejudice the buxom, tanned, over acting combatants from the TV. Did she want to watch more?

I looked up to Liz and saw that she was staring at the TV, pointing…

Dumbfounded, I turned to the TV and saw something I hadn’t expected.

There in the audience, in the front row…no…in front of the front row, were Cheech and Chong, seated in leather chairs watching the match! They were laughing and pointing at the women in the ring. Having just the grandest of times.

Wow…that was a shocker.

And if you don’t believe me, below is the link:

WWE RAW Preview: Big Match, Bret Returns, Cheech & Chong By Ryan Clark | March 01, 2010 Tonight’s edition of WWE RAW takes place from the Ford Center in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Here’s a preview: – Cheech and Chong will host. Despite the fact that WWE is TV-PG programming, it appears the company will be playing off the comedy duo’s marijuana-based routine, as WWE.com lists the following preview for tonight:

I finally was “told” to change the channel so I clicked off the TV then noticed Liz smiling.

Smiling? Was she smiling? I think she rather enjoys seeing me in those situations.

**guys you know the look I’m talking about. When you’ve done something utterly stupidly wrong, your mate huffs, cocks their head to one side and then just stares at you motionless, like a mannequin..waiting for you to do something even more stupid.
