Whoop! There she is!

Hello everyone.
Well, even amidst the turmoil, there is always a ray of light. My roommate (and one of my dearest friends) finally came home today!! :D I'm so happy to see her! She's back safe and sound, toting many goodies from her parents. I missed her so. ^_^ Welcome home, Anat!
Let's see....final film is going wonderfully - got all of my shit signed off nice and early! Onto layout tomorrow....three days ahead of schedule! Woot!
If I can remember to scan them, I'll post up a picture of my final film character designs for my two pooches - Astos and Argo, the werewolves. ^_^
Yeah.....other than that, nothing really else going on. Well, nothing that I'll post, anyways. *cough*
To layout!
Well, to bed first
Goodnight, everyone.
PS - While exploring another great blog, Cartoon Brew (cartoonbrew.com), I came upon a great little competition that was held a while back: introducing the Top 10 Most Influential Flash Shorts in "Cold Hard Flash!" http://www.coldhardflash.com/2006/09/flash-animation-10.html
Have fun!
PPS - Am I the only one who thinks the John K. one (George Liquior and Jimmy the Idiot Boy) is fucking stupid, poorly written, poorly animated, and just all around blows?

O-M-G - Where's the ring?

Don't worry, I found a new one. :D
Can't get enough of that video. Maybe that's how I should make my flash film...
Things...are going well. There's....a....well...to word it delicatly, a bit of an "internal conflict." Things are getting rather tense, you see. Actually, I'm the one instigating all of it, but a blog is really not a very appropriate place to be posting things like that.
Final film is going rather well, in my opinion. I just got my storyboard signed off earlier today, and I just need to drop my exported stills into Adobe Premier for editing and timing. Then, it's onto character design and...yeah! That will be an early deadline met (woo!), then it's onto layout!
To all of those who are actually listening, I don't know what I was freaking out about. Final film is actually really fun.
Be aware that I'm probably going to eat those words VERY SOON. :P
Yeah, other than that, things are alright. I bought Ookami yesterday....what a beautiful game! Man alive! I feel it has sort of a wierd, "Ecco the Dolphin" sort of atmosphere, where you're an animal character inside of a huge world. I've only gotten to play about two hours of it (I'm sure a certain SOMEONE KNOWS WHY.....>_< ), but man, is it ever cool. Highly recommended.
Well, I'm actually going to fall into bed....Being angry really saps the energy from you, doesn't it?
Love always,
PS - Hi Laurel!!! :D

It's Cady Time!

Hello dearies.
Dun dun dun....! A little anti-climactic (or should I say belated?), I know, but, my internet has been rather tempermental as of late.
So....my class started final film yesterday. Yup. THE final film. The final film, as in the one that we've heard SO many stories about...wah. I'm scared.
Honestly, though, we're just on character designs, storyboard and leica reel right now, and it...well, it almost doesn't seem real. Or, I should say, I don't feel that we're in any reel danger. See, there's a bit of an animation joke, you know, 'reel,' instead of...? Yeah. Nevermind. :D
Even though there's a lot - I mean, a LOT - I mean, huge, HUGE amounts of work, but, as the elected official of my class, I have a lot of faith that some fucking kick ASS films are going to come out of this year. Go 63!
Anyhoo, last but not least, my final 'wah,' because a couple of new games I preorded are coming out during final film:
-Ookami, for the PS2, coming out....oh! Tomorrow! Crazy japanese ink painting game with a sweet-looking wolf god. Woot.
-Final Fantasy 3 for the Nintendo DS, coming out sometime in November. The REAL number 3, not 6.
-Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner, for the PS2 again. Hey, if Atlus slaps an SMT in front of a title, you KNOW it's gonna be fucking sweet.
-Phoenix Wright: Justice for All for the Nintendo DS. I have NO idea when this is coming out, but we have a preorder SKU for it. The date reads 01/01/06. Uh oh. Looks like I missed the boat on this one. o_O;;;; Get it right in coding, you morons!!
Well, I'm off to play Lego Star Wars 2. Can't recommend it enough. Taste defeat, Empire! Hah!
Love always,

Lord of the Rings parody

So sleepy is this post...

Hello, everyone.
Sorry for not updating in a timely fashion, but much has been going on.
First off, I found the source of my chronic sleepy-time - after a blood test, I was diagnosed with iron deficiency anemia. Not the end of the world.....It's like my asthma (to a point): I won't die from it, but I need to watch it closely and treat it properly. It just sucks, more than anything. But hey - it could've been worse. I should count my blessings. :D I also get a valid excuse in case I sleep in.
Hmmm....what else....oh yeah - FINAL FUCKING FILM!!! AHHHHHHH!!! We have our pitch with the head of the department tomorrow, and we START FILM ON MONDAY. Holy. Crap. o_O;;;
We'll see what happens....I've got my stuff ready; maybe I should scan some of it in.
Y'know, come to think of it, not a whole lot else....it just feels like a lot of time has passed. Oh yeah - Lego Star Wars 2 is fucking SWEET! My roommate and I got it for the PS2, and it's great. Although, personally, I can't WAIT until Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner. Got mine preordered and ready. Now, to wait. :D
I should really post some art....I'll wait until something cool comes up. And I actually remember to scan it. ^_^
I'm probably gonna head off soon....see ya!

Rough ride...!

Hello, everyone.
Been a semi-busy week....labour day long weekend (hah! What weekend? I worked the whole damn thing...), but it doesn't look like everyone got some well-deserved rest. I hope my poor class is going to be up for final film....! o_O;;;;
Nothing much else going on, actually....I've been a bit 'under the weather,' and I'm waiting for my blood test to get back. Good times. :P Probably nothing, but it never hurts to check.
Yeah....actually, I've got nothing. Starfox Command for the DS is pretty cool...controls are a bit difficult. I spent a bit of Saturday getting totally owned by my assistant manager. It was nice. :D
I'll try and make a decent drawing to put up soon...hmmm...brain...melting....so...tired...
Good night. ^_^
