18 randoms about David and Pickledog!

I happy to have been tagged by the awesome illustrator Jeff Brame (5 random things), the wonderful artist Linda Silvestri (8 random things), and the hilariously clever Shaky Mouse (5 random things). As a result of my procrastination I now owe a total of 18 random things about Pickledog and I.

18 randoms things...

1. The real life Pickledog is a Jack Russell Terrier with maybe a dash of beagle.

2. On my desk I have a dash board hula girl, which I purchased on a business trip in Orlando. Totally Random

3. I have three cats. Honey and Sneekers are sisters, and Ernie is their cousin. Sneekers sits at my desk with me while I draw.

4. Hockey is the only sport that I like. The first NHL game I attended was in Philadelphia (Flyers vs. Canadiens).

5. Pickledog and I grew up on a farm with pigs, chickens, goats, guinea hens, ducks, geese, rabbits, and one turkey named George.

6. My favorite star wars character is Boba Fett. He was also my favorite toy.

7. I worked in a hot dog factory one summer. It was cold, wet, and everything smelled like spices.

8. I love coffee, and the darker it is the better! I take my coffee with cream/milk, and no sugar, but it extreme situations I will drink it black.

9. I have only ever wanted to be an artist, except for a brief period when I wanted to be a firefighter, because Santa brought me the Tonka Fire Truck that sprayed water.

10. My favorite show is Battlestar Galactica. The final season doesn't start until April. : (

11. Dark chocolate is my favorite chocolate. To me it is pure concentrated coco goodness!

12. I have one brother who is an audio technician, and a D.J.

13. I have a tendency to say really embarrassing things when I am nervous.

14. My cat's breath smells like cat food.

15. I have shoveled snow from my driveway six times already this fall. (Technically it's not winter until December 21.)

16. I don't really like roller coasters. I don't get sick on them, and I'm not afraid of heights. I just don't enjoy them for some reason.

17. I enjoy restaurants that have all day breakfast. Bacon and eggs for dinner is heavenly.

18. My favorite time of year is late August.

IF - Excess

Hey kids, tell yer mom and dad to buy you a box of Ginger Nog, the official breakfast cereal of Christmas! All the taste, and nutrition of gingerbread, and thick egg nog packed into a bite sized cereal. Now with real candy cane bites!

Provides 110% of your daily nog requirements, and shreds the roof of your mouth at twice the rate of Captian Munch•.

The box isn't complete, but I wanted to post it for this weeks I.F. topic “excess.” I'm still working on the Ginger Nog logo, and such, but I will post it again once everything is just so.

• Mouth shreding results my vary. Ginger NOG is not a real cereal, (yet) so do not rush to your local grocer demanding “your sweet-sweet G-NOG.”

Pickledog's Top 25 Movies

A couple of weeks back I was tagged by my good friend and extremely talented artist Mike R Baker to list my top 25 favorite movies meme.

Keep in mind the list doesn't represent what I would consider the greatest films ever made. Gone With the Wind is great and all that, but when I'm sick, or want to chase the blues away I watch the Goonies. With that in mind I restricted my list to only include movies I have seen more than once, and/or own on DVD, VHS, or Betamax.

In no particular order here Pickledog's 25 favorite movies!

1. Star Wars IV
2. Star Wars V
3. Indian Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark
4. Goonies
5. Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring
6. Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
7. Shawn of the Dead
8. Hot Fuzz
9. Ghostworld
10. Groundhog day
11. The Princess Bride
12. Uncle Buck (I miss John Candy)
13. Fight Club
14. the Breakfast Club
15. Christmas Vacation
16. Ghostbusters
17. Beetlejuice
17. the Royal Tannebaums
18. One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
19. 28 Days Later
20. Train Spotting
21. Wizard of Oz
22. Twelve Monkeys
23. The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou
24. Time Bandits
25. Bladerunner

In keeping with the spirit of the game I must now tag five others.

Jeff Brame: Champion of Monday Art Day, and maker of miniature masterpieces for ATC!
