SVARA SVARA SVARA

I CANNOT EXPRESS TO YOU HOW BADASS MY INDIA GROUP IS.

i screened the AV show today...

it is unbelievable.

the stories are told beautifully.
the transitions are SICK.
the sound use is incredible... both the sound we recorded and the music the av group chose for the stories.

OH MY GOD.

i am so proud to be part of this group.

FUCK!!!

i'm so excited! :)

i don't even care that my ass is becoming deformed due to WEEKS of sitting in a chair, staring at a computer screen.
i don't even care that it's been so long since i've been around new people that i've forgotten how to be social.
i don't even care that i may be losing friends because i have been literally living at school.
i don't care that there's possibly a rat in my house because it's a disgusting mess.
AND i don't even care that i only see people in color percentages of CMYK now.

that's how awesome this project is.

ohhhhh man. you should all be jealous.

APRIL 2, 2009.
we are going to blow people's minds.

peace.

rain drops

it just keeps piling up

fuck.

it's been a tough week.

end of last week:
-brought up some shit that needed to be dealt with in my india group. a few people got really pissed at me.

-since some were already mad at me... i decided to get the balls to call my mom and tell her about the tattoos. that didn't go over too well.

-then i saw my parents in person... and they let me have it for several hours.

-more color correcting

this week:
-car and phone issues

-upset more people today... to the point of yelling.

-and to top it off.. 380 more images to color correct. by tomorrow.

This project is consuming me.

you know, i hate playing this role. i hate being this person that has to bring up the problems. i don't like the drama. i hate it. i just know that if i don't do what i think is best for the group, i wont be able to live with myself. and THAT i would hate more.

i wish (and i know a number of other people wish this, too) i could sit back and say nothing.

bleh.

Anyways, on a more positive note . . .
i saw the pretty much final edit of the india book today!
it looks amazing!
if you didn't buy a presale from me, you should have.
it's soo cool to see all of our hard work put together into this beautiful HARDCOVER book.

We are awesome.






i miss justin.
sorry i haven't been a good friend lately, buddy.
i'll make it up to you soon.

and jbeezy.
live closer, dammit.

i miss scott. he was my best friend.
scott was the best at times like these; he always knew how to make me laugh.
i would go home to him after a long day of bullshit, and he would listen patiently and feed me.
then we would lay in bed and make fun of all of the bad actors on tv.
it was the best.
god i miss him.


fucking emo post.

it has to get worse before it gets better, right?
well i think it's time to get better.

i have some fun stuff to post up for next time!

...including a fun little sound bite.

i'm going to bed.

peace.

smeagol.

i am SO sick of color correcting.

this sucks. i have no say or real influence on the creative process of the book. i thought this session would be a lot of fun, but i'm totally over it. i was REALLY excited to help design the book. i even took tutorials on ask linda for indesign.

instead, i'm just doing technical work. bullshitbullshitbullshit.

i need a creative outlet. someone find me a project, fast.

i'm not upset with anyone in my group, or anything. i understand that having too many people working on the design and layout would be disastrous. someone has to do the color correcting, and i am good at it.

dammit, i wish i wasn't.

IT'S BEEN BEAUTIFUL OUTSIDE... and i've been stuck inside photoshopping like a tool.

i must say, it's easy to procrastinate when you're suppose to be doing something you don't enjoy.

i had so much passion for this project... but it's slowly fading. i guess i just thought i would be playing a more important role.

the book is going to be great, regardless. it's really coming together quite nicely.

seven more months of bullshit school work... that's it.

chop chop chop.

i'm SO bored.

does anyone want to play? i want to play some sort of game. like capture the flag! do you remember that game? think about all of the possibilities now that we are full grown! we could have the most epic game EVER.

i'm going to the beach tomorrow. that's fucking it. i'm so sick of working. i'm gong to take at least an hour out of my day to sit on the beach and read. i'm going to bring two capri sun splash coolers (best flavor ever), a water, and a book. dammit, i don't even know where to look in my mess of boxes to find a beach towel.

god i'm bored with myself.

i'll leave you with this...

my voice is a bit off because i'm still a bit sick.... i think.

peace.
