A whole lot of misdirected energy.

Imagination Movers (Last Post of 2012)

Looking through my work from the past year, I found some things I've neglected to post here. Will 2013 be the year of organization for me? Probably not. Will this be the year I get better at editing weird background things out of my pics/just taking better photos in general? Maybe.

Two of my favorite balloons that didn't make it here are Imagination Movers Dave and Scott. If you have kids, you know this band. You don't have kids? That's no excuse.

We got to meet the Movers at a show last spring (and again last month at Sesame Place. We'll probably see them when they return to Sesame Place next spring. What can I say? We're fans.) Dave and Scott jokingly requested balloon versions of themselves and I can't turn down a challenge.

I still haven't rounded out the band with Movers Rich and Smitty. They're right at the top of my to-do list, just as soon as I feel like tackling Smitty's cowboy hat.

Meat Cat

30 Rock is back tonight! I was going to say something about it being the final season and how sad/excited I am to see how they wrap things up but meh...let's just watch this instead.

Is the Cheesy Blasters jingle good and stuck in your head now? Awesome.

Oh, hey, here's a Meat Cat balloon.

I'm what's inside ya!

Philly Phanatic

Another experiment in the giant mask genre, this one has an extendable tongue for realistic Philly Phanatic style raspberry-blowing.

There's video but I'm waiting to post until I figure out how to properly edit it. I'll probably settle for sloppily edited, but we'll see.

Garfield and Odie

I did these Garfield and Odie balloons, causing me to watch this 30 Rock clip 4 times in a row because it's wonderful.

My kids loved the Bill Murray/Breckin Meyer/Jennifer Love Hewitt Garfield movie beyond all
reason (a farting cat knocking a stupid dog off the couch and and dancing to terrible music is, apparently, comedy gold.) I sincerely wish Garfield 3: Feline Groovy with Tracy Morgan was a real thing.

Homer Simpson

As far as I'm concerned, Homer's much funnier in his underpants.

Bumblebee Man

Ay! Naranjas en la cabeza!

I'm feeling Simpsons-y. More stuff coming soon, possibly.

Now the rubber band is on the other claw! (Zoidberg)

When I did this last night, S and I spent some time arguing about the best Zoidberg quote to accompany my second Futurama balloon. His is the subject line, mine was "The president is choking on my gasbladder. What an honor!"

The debate was fierce but I've finally found the one thing that will bring us together:

"With my last breath, I curse Zoidberg!"

Note the detail pic of his little flip flops. I really like them.

Jabba the Hutt

The goal: get that blobby, roll-y Jabba appearance without it looking like a random pile of balloons and/or poop.

The result, after incorporating a couple of different colors and some Sharpie shading:

Abraham Lincoln

Happy Presidents' Day! Now get out there and buy a mattress or not get mail or...whatever it is you're supposed to do today. Me, I'll be hiding out until it's time to go get those fancy pre-Lent donuts tomorrow.
