Crazy Fans!


And no, I’m not talking about Video Copilot fans, although we have our fair share :) Actually, I’m talking about my Indiana Jones Costume! Well it wasn’t easy but I managed to finally put together an Indy costume that I wouldn’t be ashamed to go outside in.

The hat is from Disneyland, I even had to buy a woman’s purse so I could use the buckle for the army bag strap. Sure the real Indy didn’t have his logo on the outside of his hat but that’s ok.

I used to make fun of all those Star Wars fans that would dress up but now I know how they feel… but that doesn’t change my thoughts about those desperate fanboys. It just makes me a hypocrite and I’m plenty fine with that.

Still working away on the new stuff, stay tuned, just keep your radios down.

I'm sure Andrew will release this tutorial when he's ready, and sure that it's good enough. He also has a family to look after, and he is doing a very good job so far.

Patience is a virtue, so I'm told. Keep up the awsome work Andrew. Your Tutorials are the greatest.

WOw holy crap. Talk about inpatience. All you guys are doing is going to have Andrew rethink when he shows us a 'preview' next time of any work he has in the pipes. Why show it when he has to hear all the constant whining.

Let the man do his thing, and be happy you have tutorials you probably havent even watched or tried yet anyways. Theres a thousand different things to do on this site, instead of complaining when the next product will be out, or when the next FREE tutorial will be introduced.

Did I mention he does the tuts free? Nada? Zippo? Zilch? Zero? Comprende?

HEY! I resemble one of those "desperate fanboys" that would dress up in their Boba Fett costume at halloween each yeah. One year I even deviated and dressed up as Ace Frehley from Kiss but that was a disaster and it was back to Boba Fett.

I actually feel sorry for myself as I type this. Think i will go and cry in my Boba Fett helmet.
