Goodbye To Calvary Chapel

Since I’m moving to Korea to teach English, I had to resign from my position at Calvary Chapel last week. This was my first week of being officially unemployed, yet I couldn’t keep myself out of the editing chair. So here is a completely self-indulgent goodbye video to the best job and crew in the world! Although teaching in Korea will be rewarding in its own way, I hope and pray that God blesses me with another opportunity like this one in the future.

Yo Gabba Gabba!?

Yo Stabba Stabba

Since I produce a kid's show, I always try to pay attention to what the tots of America are watching these days. That's when I found "Yo Gabba Gabba." I was instantly hooked! I did a little research and found that the show was produced and created by some of my favorite artists and musicians. I quickly realized this show wasn't just crack for kids, but crack for geeks like me as well! I said to myself, "Man, where were shows like this when I was growing up?!"  Then I felt it, the overwhelming sense of betrayal to my own childhood. I was brought up on shows like "Sesame Street," "Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood," and "3-2-1 Contact!" Now here I was, bedazzled by the glamor and glitz of "Yo Gabba Gabba"...stabbing my childhood shows right in the back. I was joining a gang, signing up to be a "Gabber," if you will. I could see it now, DJ Lance Rock leading a mob of rainbow-colored ruffians through "Sesame Street" and "Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood," taking what they felt was theirs. It didn't matter if you had a juiced-up snuffleupagus on your side, or a trolley for drive-bys, it was judgement day and the streets ran red with blood, yellow feathers, and purple-panda fur.
