Last weekend I tried a Creation that I had thought up. It's basically a phone booth in an alley with a fence, an aerial, a tramp and a load lot of minifig-scale rubbish. BUT!! The inside of the phone booth and the light box on top LIGHT UP! WAW! :O! Basically, I used fairy lights and blu-tacked them behind these areas. The pics I got weren't very good, soz, but enjoy them anyway!
Ok, Luke said I should put the YouTube vid of his logo on here, so I'm doing it. Fine.

Would YOU like a cool screensaver for your phone? If it has a 240x320 pixel screen (ie. portrait), like the Nokia 6300, you can get my latest screensaver, with lots of planets and stuff on it! It's cool!
Yesterday I created an animated logo for Studio 3, Luke's films studio. It's pretty cool, but it took AGES, because I had to export it from Flash as lots of .png files, then import them into iStopMotion, animate, then export that, then import it into iMovie '06, add music, and export. Phew!

Yep, I updated my YouTube channel. It's great, you can have your own custom picture as a background now, not just one on a webpage with a less-than-61-digit web address. I've just put on a d. grey-to-black gradient one with reddish bits on the side. These are Crescent Studios' newest colours (since our logo is red, and I like black too, it seemed to fit). Ok, enjoy. Oh, those of you who were on the channel whilst I was updating it, sorry 'bout that. I tried many different colours and backgrounds. The address is www.youtube.com/crescentstudios.
Oh, the new iPods rock. I'm now in love with the song 'around the bend' by The Asteroids Galaxy Tour, but it's not on iTunes so I'm sitting here listening to it off their website.
Hi again, guys! Please PLEASE check out my newest blog, Best of Brickshelf. It used to be called 'Best Lego...ever!', but I've rebranded it with some kick-ass graphics AND I've enlisted my friends to help me in my search for the ultimate MoC. There are two on already: Luke (aka James Blond) and Genesis (a Brickfilming friend of mine). Please subscribe to the blog, it means a lot to me. I'm also trying to get Tom, Tim and another Tom into the blog as well. Here's a logo!

The Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland (just) turned on just two days ago, and I made an interactive flash slideshow about how it works, yay! I've uploaded it to Newgrounds, and in its first 12 hours it's already had 700 views, 300 ratings and 19 reviews, most of which were complimentary ones!
It's a whole new venture for me. I've already updated the Flash file, and please check it out at: http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/459483 . Please rate and review, and get that view meter up!

Hello again, readers!
I've just updated a few of my websites and published them to the net. The first is the CS podcast, which I had updated last month but hadn't published, so if you're subscribed to it then you'll get two new films sometime soon.
I also published the third generation of my Crescent Studios website, which is now much smaller and much more efficient, so you don't have to wait for the RAM-heavy backdrop to load up and the backdrop won't tile on web browsers other than my Mac's. There is also an updated 'Contact Us' page, though the film pages are not yet finished so don't go complaining, punks.
I also did a few other sites, like my site for my new multimedia company NewRabbit Studios, which should launch soon. I'm still doing graphics for it, so it won't be done until later!
Ok, enjoy! Oh, happy birthday to the LEGO minifigure! Here's the logo!

Yep, after a weird day of filming with Tom yesterday, I've uploaded the first of a few mock adverts we made. This one is advertising the PetGun™: the easy way to brighten up your pet's life, with cocaine! I hope you enjoy it. It should be on my YouTube channel as of today. Oh, here's a picture of me licking a Cillit Water bottle. Don't worry, It'll all be explained in the Cillit Water ad that I should upload soon!

Hi, just to say that my film Beige has had 68 views and no fewer than FOUR ratings of five stars, and it's only been on for less than a week! Oh, it's also had five comments, so the space below the video on the page is looking packed (though I know two of the people who wrote the comments, and one of them can only be described as spam)! Please boost the viewing figures by watching the video again here:
Yay and w00t! I've really taken Newgrounds by storm! Yes, my most recent audio submission, 'Eat my bass' has already had two comments, both of them liking it! It's also had 3 downloads, which is a new record for me ('My acoustic day' got 1, sadly)! Anyways, here's another picture!
