Brandon over at TripleBeard was nice enough to take some time and do a phone interview with me for his new blog.
Brandon just started his blog and he can use some love. So please check out the interview and if you like his style (and I will say he did his homework on me) please check out some of his other interviews. I think he’s hitting up Jace next!!!!
Thanks – Todd
If you were like me, you were getting your child brain blown up by the Empire
This is the greatest movie ever made in my book. (well maybe)
Character, imagination, drama, music, special effects, twists, and sacrifice all played out perfectly among our heros. I saw Empire when I was 9. It was the first time in a movie theater, I actually had ominous feeling that permeated the entire viewing. A foreboding for the cast came over me…like nothing ever had before. I was scared for our heros. Seriously! They just kept getting f’d up worse and worse as the movie went on. Pure awesome. Sometime I like to think it would be cool to show my 6 year old nephew the trilogy spoiler free. But with the fricken horrible prequels everywhere, he already thinks stormtroopers are good guys. WTF!!!!@!!#@
Anyways, any Empire memories? - Todd
I dont’ want to either really but here it is damn it!
WTF IS THIS?
Back in 1999 I made a kung fu web series, it was a kind of an expensive hobby. For promotion and to try and meet hot chicks, I would go to conventions – even had the series on DVD so I could sell it and make money to buy food. Sometimes I would go to conventions and not even know what the con was about…as with the Fanime convention in the above video. Funny side note, it was during the processes of making these kung fu flicks back around 2000 that Jace found the series online. That is how we met, and now, 10 years later, Jace has brought me here to Warner Bros with him and he gets to see me every day. Kind of a dream come true for him me thinks!
Enjoy – Todd
Don’t know who or what Pogo is? You are in for a treat! Basically he is this kid in Australia that takes movies sounds and voices along with his own base lines and …well makes magic! Click here to see his youtube channel. Yes I am a fan. This latest video of his is a bit different. He uses real world sounds and his moms voice – a mothers day gift from a very talented young man.
Part of the reason I love this stuff so much is that here is a kid, that is creating a new art form that 5 years ago, might not have been as possible (it certainly would not have reached millions of folks it has to day then) This kid has had access to cheap powerful computers, software, HD cameras and world wide distribution via youtube, tools that he essentially grew up with. It never occurred to him that this can’t be done – it was obvious. Now, me on the other hand, well I’m up there in the years and creative innovation like what this kid is doing would be harder for me to see, which is also part of the enjoyment I get out of watching his videos.
Please let me know what you think, I would be very curious to hear from first time viewers of his content!
Lately I have been adjusting my online diet to reduce Facebook time. Mainly because I am tired of getting emotinally involved with cute single girls only to find out they are big fat men pretending to be cute girls. As if that was not reason enough, I came across this article with a timeline of Facebook’s Bad Polic

Every day I discovery many cool new things on the internet that I never thought possible or even heard of – laser jackets, out of controld satellites ,stories about amazing awesome people. Then I found this video!!!
Must Not Fap!
Until today, I didn’t know this was possible! In all my experiences, this never occured to me. I see now that I limited my imagination in a highly critical key dimention of my life. You see, I think of myself as creative and inventive, (an aspect of this process can be seen in The Jace Hall Show I like to think) but by coming across this video demonstrating a technique that until now never crossed my mind reveals to me that I do have creative blind spots. Every day is indeed an adventure of self discovery and my universe has truly expanded – Thanks internet! And thank you hot blonde chick in the blue silky pants that I guess must be crochless! I hope YOU read this and find me on Facebook!
For those of you who didn’t get a chance to catch The Streamy Awards last month, this is pretty much what it was like.
Sorry! Couldn’t resist taking a shot at that production again. But seriously, when I watch the above video it really captures that night…except the awards show had a lot more penis references, nudity, F-bombs, porn jokes, molestations, pimps…also there was no food, and the valets lost some cars…but the video is still pretty close. Anywho, the reason I bring this up is there is some politic’n going on between the Streamy’s and the IAWTV. I think the wonderful Casey Mckinnon breaks it down nicely on her blog. Check it out and let me know what you think. – Todd
The Original Up-Rockers indeed! Little Friday fun to get you through the day! If this does not make you smile, you are dead inside! Enjoy! Todd
YAY – two things I like coming together: Playing WOW and The Jace Hall Show
Behind every successful star stands a savvy, creative, inspired producer. In the case of TV and video game producer Jace Hall (The Jace Hall Show), that producer is Todd Roy. Todd pretty much epitomizes today’s casual yet completely gung-ho WoW player — only he does it from a perspective that includes rubbing elbows with some of the most well known figures in gaming and geekdom today. We talked to Todd about finding time for WoW while working a Hollywood-paced schedule, cracking up over Stan Lee’s infectious laugh and whether or not Olivia Munn really is that hot in person … All after the break.
The amazing Lisa Poisso wrote up a nice little article about my World of Warcraft habits and what I do for and my experience with The Jace Hall Show. Hope you give it a read and find it a tiny bit funny! Thanks Todd
As the producer/director/editor and sometimes talent (HAHAHAHA) on The Jace Hall Show I feel it my duty chime in here. First off, I love the site. For the last couple of years the Jace Hall Show has been scattered over multiple websites and destinations. geo-blocked for some, and hard to find for others. But now, after months of testing and tweaking, we have a single location to showcase all the hard work we did to bring The Jace Hall Show to life. If you are new here, I hope you stay awhile. Second off, I’m going to start posting articles on here but my brain works very different than Jace’s (something we are both happy about) While he may enjoy bringing a thoughtful, cerebral level of dialog and discussion to surround his postings, my A.D.D. forces me to find stuff that is more on the silly/OMG/WTF side. The Internet is awesome. For example, if the internet didn’t exist, would we ever have learned how to make Iced Tea from this creepy dude?
- If any of you find weird videos, please post them in the fourms. Thanks. Todd
