I was Marc's guest last night on his Live Chat show, if you missed it, you can replay it. It was a lot of fun nerding out with everyone and I hope to do it again sometime soon.

It was really great to hear from you 'in person'. My favorite part was learning that you had been working at Pixar for a couple of years when you decided to create this website... you can take the animator away from the puppet but, you can't take the puppet away from the animator.

That was great - thanks for doing the live interview Anthony!  It comes in the middle of my working day so I don't always get a chance to turn up, but I'm glad I made it for this one.

I forgot to tune in to it. I'll be sure to listen to the next one live.

I'm assuming there's no show tonight because of the  July 4th Independence Day holiday here in the USA. (no offense to you guys in England )

Great News, Marc is planning on doing a Live Chat show TONIGHT. (Thurs) He postponed the show instead of cancelling it.

Woo-Hoo!

AAArrrrgggghh.  My wife got home and immediately hogged the computer.  AAARRRGGGHHH!  Maybe next week.--- Just saw that the show has been moved to tonight, that is GREAT!  See you all there.

Here's your happy weekly reminder to get yourself over to AnimateClay.com for the Live Chat show tonight at 8pm Central Time. So set your stop motion clock alarm for that time now. Don't forget to bring your puppets, surface gauges, and X-sheets! (you won't actually need them but, it's just the right thing to do )

I am already on the site, waiting breathlessly. . . .

Iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit's Wednesdayyyyyyyyyyyy!!! I'm excited, you excited?

There will be another special THURSDAY EDITION of the Live Chat show on AnimateClay.com TONIGHT!

Last night the usual crowd of stop motion enthusiasts showed up but, NO SHOW??? We had a bit of fun in the chat room waiting for Marc (our lovely and gracious host) to show up but............. he never did. As it turns  out, we eventually figured out that it was Marc's birthday and that little factoid had been posted on Facebook but nowhere else.

So late last night I got an email from the man himself   and he wanted me to inform you all that he will be putting on a rain-date show tonight at the usual time!  8pm Central
