This summer has gone by fast and I've been having too much fun. It's been a relatively mild summer compared with the past two I have experienced. I really wish I could have made it back to the US to visit all my friends but the airfare is ridiculous. I still haven't been back. At least I'm trying to make the best of it. My sister will be here in two days. I'm looking forward to that. I'll try to get back into the swing of things with my blog and videos. I bought a new hard drive, so I have the space! That's all for now! Later!

There is a long story behind this movie. A long long long one. But I will post about that sometime later.
I don't like to George Lucas my artwork, go back and fix it and those things but this one I did and it was all in the audio and title slates.
Originally, the music that I had in there was by a band named "Harley Poe". The music fit but... Thats their music. Copyrighted.
I wanted to avoid copyrighted issues so I went into Garageband and 'John Carptenered' my short. Which turned out fine.
I will probably use the same process from now on.

I'm sitting here conversing with Karl over skype. We were watching animated shorts and sending links and the like. Most of the animations were flash based. Then I thought.
"I haven't been here in forever".
So I headed over to Newgrounds to check on my account and I viewed an old project of mine.
I watched it and felt depressed. Partly because nearing the end of 2005, I stopped working on Flash/2D to focus on CG. I thought I wanted to work on computer animated films and video games.

I haven't been drawing much as of late. Not that I can't or don't want to, its just I'm lazy and finding other things to fill the void. Sometimes, I say to myself; "if its not worth drawing, I'm not drawing it." Which is kind of a stupid way to think cause really I would never get any better at the skill but I don't care much about that anymore.
In other news. I talk with people, one of them I talk with Karl; I have talked talks many of times. Whom I don't have a... Wait, I do have a picture of him.
He's not Japanese. And B.G.F.L. stands for "Black Guys For Life". That was a stage in my life... That sometimes I have a hard time getting over.
But, when we converse, sometimes we say silly things. For instance, this happened today.
me:i might train up
i like alternate forms of transportation
that involves me not driving
luckily train fare is coming down
trains are... fun
me: think karl
when you are on a train, if you rode one say for 3 hours one way
thats like 5 and a half goosebumps
Karl: oh man.
F.Y.I. Karl reads... Fast.
But sometimes I think it would seem fun to turn normal dialoug like this, into comic or movie dialoug. Or to measure time, not by the sun and moon but in "Goosebumps" which would be realative to Karl.
And if you have never read a goosebump... Shame on you.
me: one of these days, you and me should tag team a book
i read half, and you read half
but neither of us will ever tell the other what eaches halves were about
it will be awesome
and it will be an amazing story of lore
To be continued.
