I guess just becuase you went to school with someone for 6 years or so and spent lots of time with them doesn't mean they're going to remember you exsist once everyone's off to college. Just remember that when you go to see your old high school or even college friends years later, they're not required to remember you, so don't get upset.
Meanwhile, on the internet. A certain website does not yet exsist, due to some unknown difficulty with my partner getting the website hosted. I shall try to contact him soon as I can to get this fixed, as I would love for people to be able to see all our (read my) hard work.
Oh wells, enjoy your breaks and stuff!
Oh yes, and for those who I won't see before then: Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
Yeah that's right, I said it. Christmas. None of that Happy Holidays bushiness.
So if my partner keeps his end of the deal, TheBlook.org will be up on Christmas. It will be fully functional shortly after and you're all welcome to enjoy and tell your folks. Only real things holding me back from finishing it all up is not having the hosting server yet and being a terrible designer. It looks fairly clean now, but I'd like for it to have some more color to it and not look quite as plain. If anyone wants to help out for a part in the project, I'd love it and you could email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can talk.
I'm so very glad I won't have to take Epics or Earth Science ever again. Earth Science consists of memorizing boring things about the Earth's crust and the environment, and then goes off into all kinds of theoretical bullcrap about the beginning of the universe and the Earth itself. Why does anyone care at all about how the universe was formed? Sure, learning about our History can be helpful in learning about current day people and making guesses about the future, but that's only useful when you're talking history as in the 1400's or something. 4 billion years ago (if, in fact, the earth is anywhere near that old) offers nothing about today. You, your children, and the next 100 generations after them will all be dead long before the universe collapses in on itself or whatever crap people think is going to happen. I also like how theories like black holes and such come with excuses for not being able to prove it built into their definitions. I'll believe all that mess when I see some video tape of the first stars forming, or some photos of a black hole, heh. Heck, if someone wants to take me up in a spaceship and go see one, I'd be up for it.
Until then, it doesn't matter, and I don't believe it. So ha.
Goodwinlabs was the name I used on my original website hosted on my friend's server before he reformated it and didn't feel like setting the web server back up. It had all my cg works in progress and finished products in a nifty basic html page. The biggest part of the site I was proud of was the image map I used for the main page. Too bad that image doesn't exists anymore, I took lots of time to make it. With M$ Paint, mind you.
On a side note, I can now type with decent accuracy without looking at the keyboard. I still hunt and peck, but I'm a seasoned hunt and peck-er, so it looks good still.
This is a free video about various camera techniques.
Various cartoons by students and such.
This is lots of experimental video and such from some students, but they're linux users and like to bash on windows and whatnot on occasion, so I enjoy.
So yeah, try em out, and let me know if you know of some amazing video podcast that I don't know about.
Meanwhile, no more classes, and no more assignments from lame classes like Earth Science and Epics. I'm so very glad that's over, cause I definitely don't want to do more of it. I turned in all the Earth labs I had left and completed all the Epics Papers we needed for our presentation today. Fortunately, we didn't win for our class, so we didn't have to go back later that day and stay for about 5 hours for the inter-class competitions. My roommate got second in his class, so he got to go and spend his evening being bored to tears waiting his turn. Silly him. So while he was gone, we went up to the ORC in Mines Park and watched movies on the big screen while the kids who had money left on their meal plans burned some of it for the rest of us. which reminds me, I have a drink to go grab and sip on.

So yeah, apparently the guy who came up with the whole idea of theblook.org has found himself a new job. He split the idea 50/50 with me if I would help him write the code necessary in the background for such a site, but now I'm a 75% owner since his new job means 10 hour days and lots of travel. I'm glad he's doing well, but meanwhile he was the one defining theblook's look and style, and he can't do that anymore. So I need me someone who can make things look prettier than I, otherwise I'm gonna do me all kinds of learning the hard way.
