Cooking with Tronne: TOAST!

It only took a month, but the next Cooking With Tronne is now available on Youtube!

Special thanks goes out to Ian Coombs for suggesting “You should cook toast next”!


What else is new… Hmmm….

I’ve been trying to teach myself some more Adobe After Effects and its starting to pay off! You might notice the (sloppily) animated toast man in this episode, as well as the cool “Woosh!” scene change effects.

I’ve been paying a lot of attention to freddiew on youtube. He does the best special effects on all of youtube in my opinion, and his second account, freddiew2 , has some awesome behind the scenes videos. If you haven’t checked him out before, I suggest you do. I’m learning a lot of cool things from watching his stuff!

AND one more thing:

I made a new HD version of the MissilePuppy production logo to go with our videos from now on. Seeing as we now have an HD camera, this makes a lot more sense. The only real difference is the resolution, the object proportions, and the stars. What do you think? I think it’s a nice improvement.

Cooking With Tronne: Ice Cubes

Whhhhh-hhhoooooooo! I am SUPER EXCITED! I finally forked over the cash for an HD camcorder!

I made sure to get a nice one too! Now I may not be able to eat for a couple of weeks, but I am able to bring you this:

The Sideburn Experiment.


Call me what you will, but I often get ideas in my head for (what I think) could be cool youtube videos. For the past 2 months or so I’ve had this idea mulling around my brain that if I could make it look like I lit a match with my sideburns, it would look tough and manly and everybody in the world would want to be my best friend. I’ve also been debating the merits of having such giant sideburns in the first place (other guys think they’re cool while most girls seem creeped out). So I figured I had better hurry up and create this documented evidence that I, at one point, had such sideburns.

J-Mann’s Top 5 Film’s of the Year

What’s that you say? There’s only a few hours left before the new year? Well then WHAT ARE WE WAITING FOR!? ON WITH THE REVIEWS!

Films seem to have been getting less focused on actually having a good plot and more focused on blowing up as many things as possible the past few years. There have been a few gems this year that manage to blow things up and actually make sense… AT THE SAME TIME! This is good news, and I hope it continues well into the new decade and beyond. I’m also super happy to have seen some really awesome Sci Fi movies come out this year (oh yeah, that might give half this list away) and I love me some good Sci Fi. 

Alright, LIST GET!
