Sunny Jim and Starch face the return of the Mysterious Malefactor! 

After months of slacking, the Malefactor is back and he has a disturbing marionette-filled short all about the joys and miseries of telephone operation for the Rangoons. He’s out to make up for lost time but an even more powerful force has its claws in his would-be victims: Starbound!*

Take a trip to the distant past, when telephones had dials, busy signals and sufficient mass to fell a mature bison with a single blow in… Adventure in Telezonia! 

*This video also doubles as a review of the Starbound Beta.

New Starchibald - Puppet

My first puppet was Starchibald, a simple sock-puppet like creature made from ProjectPuppet’s Glorified Sock Puppet design. As my first design, Starchibald had some problems. His arms were poorly sewn and could neither be manipulated or posed. His stiching was questionable, I had tried to glue in his tongue with fabric glue leading to discoloration and, in general, he was rough going. 

Still, I liked the character, and after having made another dozen or so puppets to build up my skills, I decided to make a new one. 

Starchibald 2.0 is far and away a superior puppet. He has a foam body for structure, better sewing techniques and fabric to minimize seam appearances, interchangable eyes affixed with velcro for future expansion of his facial expressions, better designed and attached inner-mouth features, a wire-posable tail (he’s some kind of Salamander or newt), bushier eyebrows and working arms (one with a removable rod, the other with a magnet in his palm for grabbing things/using a magnet-based rod.

With his eyebrows, his major features are completed. I plan on adding a puppeteer’s sleeve and possibly a pair of legs down the road.

Hey guys, Starchibald here, enjoy this screen test! We have a new lighting system and everything, I think it works!

Still tinkering with camera placement, though.

What can picnic supplies tell us about cars? More than we care to know! Learn how a Chevrolet made before you were born is like a pile of plates and straws and how child endangerment is like automotive engineering. 

All this and a hair-brained scheme from Sunny Jim!

Hi everybody, I’m Starchibald!

Welcome to the Isle of Rangoon! I’ve borrowed my roommate Trent’s computer to set up this tumblr blog so everyone can be up to date on what we’re up to. 

A little about myself:

  • I was born on the Isle of Rangoon in 1979.
  • I am a Notary Public and CPA but I really want to be in show business.
  • I am allergic to circus peanuts.
  • I like long walks in the park, Thai food and the comic stylings of Crow T. Robot. Clue is the best movie ever made.
  • My best friend since 3rd grade is a monster named Sunny Jim. If you know where he wound up in the US, please let me know. 

Thanks for dropping by. There’s more to come!
