The Yin and Yang of being a creative soul...

Those of you who follow the Facebewks or the Tweeterz may have noticed a desperate plea from me the other day.

I was kinda down. Some random tool who blogs for decided to pimp his parody of Cee Lo Green's "Fuck You!" by turning it into an article about why people shouldn't make parodies. And of course, that meant he had to talk shit about all the other parodies, which drove the mindless masses to those parodies with the intent of talking smack. And talk smack they did. The thumbs downs and the "this is crap" comments just piled up, and in response, I took it personally and just got more and more down.

So down, in fact, that I ended up making a desperate plea to the internets for love (in a way that didn't involve Craigslist).

And, because my friends are awesome, they responded with love. Some of that love was tough love, too. I *WAS* being stupid about the whole situation. I know that the idiot trolls will just jump on the hate wagon because it's the cool thing to do. But some of my friends responded with straight up facts:

Random Troll

2: Total Upload Views: 0

1: Subscribers: 79
2: Total Upload Views: 52,327

And really, that's what knocked me out of the slump. And so today started off in a better place than yesterday.

But then, today, I found out something that I SOOOOOOOOO wish I could rub in the faces of every one of those mouth breathing hate mongers...

I'm in the credits for a documentary that is appearing on a BluRay set for a HUGE movie that came out this summer. I'm not going to say which movie, but if you think about it hard enough you'll likey be able to figure it out. It's the coolest thing knowing that something I did was used for a project that is going to be shared around the world... and I freakin got credit for it.

So ya know what You Tube Haters and CrackedHeads and Cody Johnston? I could give a crap about what you think about my work. How many DVDs has your name appeared on?

This is my second. So suck it.

Still awesome after all these years...

(oh yeah, and thanks for the nearly 1000 extra views you got for "Frak You!")
