040 – Match Jake – How to Help (matchjake.org)

Hey folks. Here’s a project that’s truly important to support. I’ve sent out word about this before, but now we have a video to back it up. Brent directed and animated this thing, and did the score. Patton Oswalt (Remy from Ratatouille) narrated it, and Pete Horner did the sound design.

WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT: On February 17, 2012, at exactly 5 1/2 years old, Jake went to the doctor to try and figure out why in just one week he was bruising more than usual, had a very slight but persistent bloody nose, and was too tired to walk to school. Later that night we were stunned when he was diagnosed with Severe Aplastic Anemia. For reasons currently unkown, Jake’s bone marrow has stopped working – which means that it’s not producing red or white blood cells or platelets.


MORE INFO: What does that mean?

- First, it means life as Jake knew it prior to Feb 17 has changed dramatically. Kindergarten has been replaced with a daily regime of medications and a weekly regime of doctor’s appointments, blood tests and transfusions.

- Second, it means life for our family now requires a crash course in pediatric hematology, homeschooling Jake and constantly struggling to figure ways to keep his life “normal” but safe for a creative, busy, happy kid with no immune system and dangerously low levels of blood in his body.

- Third, and most important, it means finding Jake’s cure, a bone marrow transplant. This is where you come in… matchjake.org

039 – crazy awesome short film shot in MISSION CHINESE FOOD

Okay. This is a strange, but awesome tie in between Freeman’s, Mission Chinese Food, and Sunday Paper. A chef  won’t take any crap from bad customers, in this Tarantino-esque short. I love when the girl takes off her shoes. Great moment. And, they actually show some of the food. Just to be clear. This is not a documentary about Mission Chinese Food, so don’t expect that.


Freemans Sporting Club & Sunday / Paper present “Mission Chinese”.
