2007 Oct 25 ¡Schitt! ê! ü! æ! The Worst Performance Ever genre: live performance runtime: 08:54 The problem with most "worst [x] ever"s is that they're usually crafted to still be entertaining in some kind of hyperbolic way.

Then we went and did it at the Neutral Ground Coffeehouse's open microphone night, breaking a spoon and shattering their tambourine in the process. We recorded it. Four years later I drew some really bad pictures to make this video you're either about to watch, or are about to close and forget you ever saw it. In any case, this is really bad.

FILM Jimmy Makton & The Counting Room Three Comedy / Western
runtime 9:10 released April 25th 2016
This film is a prequel to "The Bounty Hunter And The Butcher" focusing on the back story of one of its main characters.
Jimmy Makton is a Pinkerton Agent and two-fisted Chicago hero in the 1870s who nearly meets his match when he tracks three vicious bank robbers to their hideout -- well, according to what he tells the press anyway. At a certain point, the reputation does all the work. There's more than one side to a story and Jimmy's got them all covered, depending on who's listening.
This film takes settings, characters and situations from "Targeted!!!" and adapts them into a more mature and coherent story and film.
In 1874, acclaimed local hero and Pinkerton Agent Jimmy Makton is called in from Chicago to California to track down Billy the Butcher, a vicious murderer targeting soldiers and lawmen. Paired against his will with the wild bounty hunter Samuel Barnet, Jimmy soon finds that he may not be as ready for the frontier as it is for him.
It's a frantic ride of guns and blood for Jimmy, and it's only just started -- the Targeted series begins here!
FILM Targeted!!! (A Western Written By A Seven-Year-Old) Comedy / Western
runtime 18:39 released April 11th 2016
See what happens when a script I wrote when I was seven is shot and played completely straight.
In the 1980s, a seven year old wrote a western movie script. It made no sense at all. It was soon forgotten... then found again over 20 years later. This short film was shot from that unedited script.
Jimmy Makton is a naive greenhorn who's found himself in the wild west. Luckily, Samuel Barnet's showing him the ropes of how to survive in the area... but Bickerin' Billy's in town looking to get back the money Samuel owes him by the deadliest means.
