Well, I know how much Stephen Colbert enjoys people "blogging" about his exploits, so I figured it'd be fun to do just that. Anyway, I read on the Newgrounds BBS that he was announcing his candidacy; I couldn't believe just a single forum post, so I decided to use my old pal google to research it deeper, and apparently it's... true. Here's the article I found on it, read on if you are intrigued.

Stephen Colbert to Run for President

By: Jake Coyle

NEW YORK (AP) — Stephen Colbert announced his candidacy for president on "The Colbert Report" on Tuesday night, tossing his satirical hat into the ring of an already crowded race.

"I shall seek the office of the President of the United States," announced Colbert on his Comedy Central show, as balloons fell around him.

Colbert had recently satirized the coyness of would-be presidential candidates by refusing to disclose whether he would seek the country's highest office — a refusal that often came without any prompting.

His recent best-seller, "I Am American (And So Can You!)" afforded him the opportunity to mock the now-standard approach to a White House run, complete with a high-profile book tour.

The Comedy Central host has often mobilized his fans ("Colbert Nation"), encouraging them to vote to have a Hungarian bridge named after him, for example, or to vandalize Wikipedia.com with his version of "truthiness" and "wikiality."

How far the mock conservative pundit planned to stretch his impression of a presidential candidate wasn't clear. Colbert rarely breaks character on camera, including at his memorable speech at the White House Correspondents' Association Dinner last year.

Colbert planned to get his name on the primary ballot in South Carolina, where the comedian is originally from. Earlier this week, South Carolina public television station ETV invited Colbert to announce his candidacy on its air.

When recently asked what party affiliation he would adopt if he tossed his hat in the ring, Colbert replied: "Both. I can lose twice."

In a guest column for Maureen Dowd in Sunday's New York Times, Colbert wrote: "I am not ready to announce yet — even though it's clear that the voters are desperate for a white, male, middle-aged, Jesus-trumpeting alternative."

Pretty crazy huh? Let's hope he does better than the movie did.

I can't believe this... the one game, ONE GAME, that I really truly absolutely wanted this year has been moved to next year... According to IGN, Gamespy, Game Informer and Game Trailers, Super Smash Bros. Brawl is being released February 10th, 2008. I was so eager to get it for Christmas, to play it with my friends during Christmas break this year. I guess I can safely buy Super Mario Strikers Charged without worrying about my funds. The only good thing about this is that it will be all the more rewarding when we finally do get it.

Well, it seems as though all my work has paid off! TU3 is doing better than any of my cartoons ever! ^_^ Just thought I'd let you all know.

Well, over the last two weeks I have been working almost non-stop on Tetris Unleashed 3! It's been tough, but It's really paying off in the cartoon itself. I have been staying focused with the rhythmic repetition that is Daft Punk's music. Animation is pretty tedious, and the rhythm really helps me stay on task. I also learned this week that I'm not addicted to Vault, in the sense that I don't need it to animate, I do fine without it. So overall it's been an awesome week! Wish me luck as I try to make my deadline of October 5th to release TU3!

Well, a few hours ago I got back from seeing Dragon Wars.

Link to a Movie Review I Made


Anyway, I am pretty tired from all that, an hour long car ride with your friends hyped up on caffeine does take a toll on oneself. When I got back the house was pretty dull, same-old same-old as I may have expected. I don't know why I'm making this post. I'm just bored.

Sort of a filler post...

Went up to my dad's this weekend. I hadn't seen him in a month, so it was nice to catch up. Didn't really get anything done with any of my cartoons this weekend either, I wanted too, it's just that my creative juices really aren't flowing at 2:00 AM, and I didn't feel like doing it at any other time. So yeah, just thought I'd keep you up to date on my happenings.

Important Matter to Attend to...

Wanting:

I hate to do this, but I really need everyone's help, anyone who is reading this to go to any of the following links, and give each of those cartoons a thumbs up please!

Preferably This One: http://crackle.com/c/Wet_Paint/Jim_Day_07/2012368/#ml=fi%3D%26fu%3D2243875

This One is Second: http://crackle.com/c/Shorts/Jim_and_Pals_Shorts_Episode_2/2012520/#ml=fi%3D%26fu%3D2243875

This one I don't care about as much: http://crackle.com/c/Shorts/Jim_and_Pals_Shorts_Episode_1/2012521/#ml=fi%3D%26fu%3D2243875

Explanation:

Now for the story, see I was watching Attack of the Show on G4 awhile back and I saw an advertisement for a site called crackle.com now, at first I thought it was a Youtube rip-off, but when they mentioned that some prizes included $15,000+ and movie deals, I got more interested, currently they are hosting a "Shorts" and "Wet Paint." Shorts is basically just submit a short video that you've made, and you could potentially win a movie deal with columbia studios! Wet Paint is a cartoon contest, that could lead to a possible sony-sponsored theater short, which could lead to a movie! So I am kinda excited, so please, please, please go to at least 1 of those links and give the cartoon a thumbs up!

Thanks in Advance, Jimtopia

Well, I've been busy today. I fixed up my DeviantArt account to look... well... to look a lot better than it did. You see, I used to just use my DA page for test cartoons and whatnot, but now that I've got it nice looking, I hope to keep my favorite cartoons there. Don't worry I wont upload anything there that wont be on Jimtopia.net first. Anyway, my DA account is http://jimtopia.deviantart.com! Take a look!
