“Have A Good Day!” is a short film by Joel McAfee & Ante Up Esau Entertainment created for the Two Day Film Challenge at WKU. I am proud to have been involved in its production.

They are as follows…

Character: Dave “Doobie” Wiley, Hippy/Artisan

With no further adieu, presenting “Have A Good Day!”


Two great clips from late night talk show appearances.  No bad language, but a few overlapping jokes.  Enjoy!

If you’ve ever watched “The Colbert Report,” you know that this kid has him down pat. The facial expression is perfect! It’s amazing what kids pick up on television.

“Oh! Emetophobia” is the fourth track on and the first single (you can watch the video at the bottom of this entry) from Showbread’s “Age of Reptiles.” I think it was a good choice for a first single as it is a well-rounded song to represent the “new” Showbread — less screaming, more synth, but still raw. Let’s look at the lyrics.

Dance with me baby, let me hear your voice
Oh if I didn’t wanna fall for you I never had a choice
Smear the makeup on my face
run your fingers through my hair
I can not keep my heart from you and I don’t even care
Yeah, you turn me inside out
You make me shake and I can’t stop
You give new meaning to drop dead gorgeous
And I’m about to drop

You are a song to me
And every note of every chord will set me free
There’s no time before you came alone
Three cheers for the end of twenty one years
Nothing else is going wrong

Reverberate and complicate my evenings and my days
And I will only love you more
I will count the ways
Dance with me and when you see my pulse beneath my skin
It’s racing now, I don’t know how to hold the burning in
You’ve taken from me my defenses
My will is under attack
And baby when I wrap my arms around you
I feel the bones in your back

Oh yeah, your voice is like music
It’s music to my ears
I’m not dying anymore, I’m alive baby!

Like the previous track, this is a love song — in fact, it’s part of a four-song run of love songs on the album. Yeah, some of the lyrics may be a little weird, but it’s basically just a song about how the writer’s one true love makes him feel. The one thing I don’t really understand, and continuing with the recurring reference to vomit, is the title of the song. Emetophobia is “an excessive or irrational fear of vomiting.” How that relates to this song? No clue. Got any ideas?

Next: Sing Me To Sleep

“Golden Toe” is a short film Gilbert Kerrigan and I filmed this year while at Greenwood Park’s summer camp. It’s meant to be a parody of modern teen horror movies. There are a few inside jokes that you may not understand unless you were at camp this year. Whether you all find it funny or not, Gilbert and I had a lot of fun making it. Anyway, on with the show!
