Farley

Featuring WoW Cosplay, Star Wars Animation, and Chris Farley!

Alright El Moochadores, time to get back on track. Or is this a road? The airport moving sidewalk we call Atomic Moo… the point is, it’s Morning Moo time and there’s a lot of cool stuff to share. Let’s start with some frigg’n amazing World of Warcraft cosplay from Phaleure Cosplay10433264_769795979760244_445073380078797727_n and cosplayer Ellie Marie (aka: Dust Bunny on the Deviant art). Look to the image on the right and you’ll see Marie’s Warsong Commander costume from Blizzcon 2014. I’ve posted a few more images below of the costumes construction but you can see way more on Phaleure Cosplay’s Facebook page. Also, click the above links to see her Deviant art portfolio. For the Horde!!! Actually, that’s not true. When I play WoW, I play Alliance. However, I do really like to bashing Horde players in PvP. Okay, that’s not true either. I mostly get the hell beat’n out of me in hopes of scoring a few honor points. Still… awesome cospaly.

Unfortunately Human

97858635270127926a65dd1467ad2f11_original

Help Fund a Very Cool Indie Comic!

Hello El Moochadores! Last week I interviewed Jack Holder, the creator and writer of Spells and Taxes (an imaginative new twist on a fairy tale) for an upcoming Moocast episode. Spells and Taxes is the story of what would happen if the princess kissed the wrong frog, and then that frog (now a young woman named Dwellna) had to deal with being a person.29f13e87338bbf6565ee6baa87a39593_original I’m currently producing the Moocast episode (probably #104… I think) featuring Mr. Holder, however; it won’t be done before the Kickstarter for the follow up book, Unfortunately Human, ends. Unfortunately Human is a 24 page issue that continues Dwellna’s story, and also features an 8-page short story Tea Time with a Goddess”, and they need your help to get it made!

So, here’s what we need you to do: in advance of the Moocast, go check out the Unfortunately Human Kickstarter page (the above link) and throw them some support. The book features the wonderful writing of Jack Holder and amazing art by Patch Silver. I’ve posted a few sample pages from the first book, Spells and Taxes, below, but check out the kickstarter link for more information about the comic and contributor rewards!

The Atomic Moocast #102!

Atomic-Moo-Moocast-Icon-600x600

“Wow!”, I hear you all saying. “Another Moocast and so soon! Thank you Mister Trog, you’re awesome!” Yes. Yes I am, and you very are welcome. So, here it is folks: episode #102, where in we talk with Inside Out actress:92a86df66c5238f4842cb2d222e0e6ba_400x400 Lori Alan!!! Lori has been in such great shows like Toy Story 3, Sponge Bob Square Pants, and Family Guy and now she’s here to tell us all about working on Inside out! Frigg’n groovy!

Just a real quick note about this show: While recording with Lori, the call dropped. Many times. Maybe it was Verizon, maybe it was Skype, I don’t know (wasn’t me) but there were a few times the call was interrupted. However, I’m a middling to good editor, so what follows is all the pieces put back together in a mostly seamless way.Mom'sSaddness Mostly… I would have mentioned all that on the Moocast itself, but I forgot. So, yeah, that happened, but it was still an awesome conversation and we are very happy Lori came on our show.

So, here we go folks! This Moocast is a fresh, steaming, load of podcasting excellence just waiting to ooze down your ear holes! Prepare yourselves! Go now and get a cool fizzy soda, and find that comfy spot, because you’re about to let the Moocast into your brain squidgy regions of your brain!

Enjoy!

MOVIES BY THE NUMBERS

JurassicWorld

Return to Isla Nublar in JURASSIC WORLD!

Join Numbers as he travels back to a remote island near Costa Rica and ponders at length about the latest Jurassic Park film. Views expressed in this article do not necessarily reflect those of AtomicMoo.com or its staff, even though they really should.

Hard to believe it now, but there used to be a time when “movie magic” still meant something, and CGI was an unproven, budding post-production tool rather than the overused eyesore it is today. Steven Spielberg’s groundbreaking 1993 film Jurassic Park, based on Michael Crichton’s bestselling thriller novel,Jurassic-Park was celebrated for its incredible special effects that still hold up over twenty years later, including prominent use of computer effects before that was a given. More than just a tech demo, the film awed audiences around the world with its believable human characters, palpable tension, incredible soundtrack, and breathtaking visuals. Jurassic Park defined its decade and shaped the face of film making for years to come.

But how do you follow a legend? They certainly tried, with a follow-up novel and two movie sequels, none of which were quite as good as the original, and certainly did not have its impact. Perhaps the answer was simply to wait.

Check out this series of Marvel ComicsJim-Phillips-Screaming-Hand-273x400 inspired Screaming Hand skate decks from Santa Cruz.

Nintendo Fan Crochets Super Mario Bros 3 Map!

11535850_10155707748930581_2303210292079550428_n

Via Laughing Squid: It took a Denmark based computer programmer, Kjetil Nordin, six years to crochet this blanket of the grasslands map from Super Mario Bros 3. According to Nordin;

The hardest thing has been to accept that it took such a long time. I’ve spent 800 hours crocheting and many hours researching and searching for the correct yarn

Wow. Wait, is that better than playing 800 hours of Mario Bros 3? Really, either would have been impressive. Anyways, I’ve posted a few sample photos below, but hit the link to see more.

Crowdfunding Advice from Gary Vaynerchuk

Good morning El Moochadores! Super quick post this morning, mostly because I slept in and I’m late for work. It’s okay though, I hate my job. Anyways… Via Black Mast Studios and CrowdCrux: We often post about the Kickstarter, and other crowd sourcing, campaigns by creatives, and it is always awesome to see independent ideas get funding and made. So, to help future projects along, check out this Q&A video from Gary Vaynerchuk. Vaynerchuck is “a social media celebrity, serial entrepreneur, and the author of Crush It! Why Now is the Time to Cash in on your Passion.” Yeah, I just heard of him too, but the video is pretty great and chuck full of solid advice. So, give it a watch, learn from it, and let’s all stop this working for other people nonsense.

Enjoy.

Featuring Fun Cosplay at a Water Park!

Good morning El Moochadores! Today we’re featuring more great Cosplay coverage from Beat Down Boogie’s trip to Kalahari Resort in Sandusky Ohio! Wait, Sandusky? Wasn’t Tommy boy from Sandusky? Anyways, before you scroll down to see lots of great cosplayers in skimpy outfits, check out this little bit of inspiration I found on the Facebook. Via Paolo Libunao Illustration; take a look at this definition of a professional. I just copied and pasted the text here, so hit the link to follow it back to its source, or to check out Paolo’s stuff.

What makes a Professional Creative

I have met a lot of creative people who are hobbyists, amateurs, students, even professionals. There are graphic designers, illustrators, comic book artists, painters, even cosplayers. But professional are the ones that stand out from the rest of the group. From my observation here are some things that I’ve noticed from professionals.923465_800795553270159_62552319_n (1)

• Pros got a high skill level. There are amateurs who are very good at what they do but pros really put a lot of time and effort learning and refining their craft. Employers and clients demand a high quality of work.
• Pros use their skill as a business. Amateurs may make money with their art but they create because it’s what they like to do or it’s a pastime. Pros are in the business of creating because it’s means of income.
• Pros value their work. They get paid for the job done. They will not work for free unless it’s for charitable purposes. Amateurs take jobs that don’t pay but are a lot of fun.
• Pros sign contracts, NDA’s and all that legal stuff for protection. Don’t forget they ask 50% upfront.
• Pros have a timetable. Amateurs do their work only when motivated. Pros are self motivated because they need to beat deadlines and need to be credible among clients.
• Pros have people skills. Sure, creative people like being left alone in one corner so they can work. Pros need to interact with people; they have bosses, clients and are team players. When they advance in experience they may become managers and directors. That’s when leadership skills come into play.
• Pros also love what they do.

So what about you? Are you a pro? Are you ready to be one? How about we hear what you have to say.
