Over the past week I have been working on a new website for school. ViComm.org is a community website for the Visual Communications program at MATC.All of the site was put together by me. The banners at the top are created by various people. I am pretty proud of how it turned out.
This semester I have a 3D modeling class. So far we are on the basics, and most are struggling with the whole 3D space thing. Where as I taught my self some 3D with Maya PLE, and I am just struggling with the shitty 3D modeler called “Strata 3D”
I have managed to get some ok looking basic stuff to come out of it though. Here is a peanut butter jar.
This guy was made for a group project at school. Someone came up with the crazy idea about a vampire bag puppet going to the bank to get a loan to open his own blood bank.
Done in about 20-25 mins. In class. They seemed to really like it.
Still working at SVA, not been too creatively motivated after work when doing it for 8 hours during the day. Quite a lack of updates here.
I will be starting school the last week of August and am looking forward to that greatly.
I had a small severe bout of depression this Monday, I woke up from a dream that made me feel so lonely and depressed I did not have the energy to even get out of bed. I know when it is plainly written like that, it seems impossible to feel that shitty, but it is. Hopelessness is quite heavy. Because of this I missed 2 days of work. The good news is I am feeling much better, and my boss was quite understanding about it. Along with my co-workers. Marcomm dept ftw.
In other matters
Sheep in the Big city is so damn punny.
Halo 3 will be amazing.
I have re-designed the Warrior World information page I had created, and made it more presentable. It will also eventually have videos of each episode I have posted too. Currently it only has a hand full. I have been playing with this off and on for awhile now, and over the past 2 days I managed to get things rolling a bit better on it. I can’t guarantee and speedy updates to the site, but I expect to get it updated when I can.

Here is the video I mentioned in my previous post. I was editor and camera on the project. The rest is Ben’s work. He entered just for the experience of creating something and submitting it. It turned out rather good for his very first outing in creating a short film.

The other day I was in the cafeteria eatin some lunch and a guy walks up to me and asks if I download music. I stutter some kind of response and he hands me a card and says I can download 10 songs from iTunes with it. Its a card promoting the National Guard. Yeah, giving me free songs really helps me warm up to the idea of going to Iraq. Not.
Anyway, here are the songs I got. I know you have prolly not heard of any of them, and actually I have not either. I found them via the “what others bought” relating to my new favorite group “Soulwax“.
1 Boys Wanna Be Her (Tommy Sunshineâ€™s Brooklyn Fire Retouch) – Peaches
2 My My My (StoneBridge Remix) – Armand Van Helden
3 Wouldn’t It Be Good? – Soulwax
4 Seventeen Years – Ratatat
5 Wildcat – Ratatat
6 Something to Lose (Cedric Gervais Remix) – Creamer & K featuring Nadi Ali & Rosco
7 Take Me Into Your Skin – TrentemÃ¸ller
8 Feel It – DJ Rap
9 Miss Alissa – Eagles Of Death Metal
10 It’s for You – Out Hud
