As in the title 🙂

Totally forgot I had these, decided to make a few quick shots with them on and ended up doing a new picture for this blog.

The last two weeks

27 11 2006

I need to update this place more often. Anyway…

The last two weeks were odd. First I fell into a huge well of lazyness out of which I had to climb out slowly, (kinda like sadako, except I didn`t fail during my life and didn`t have to take revenge by coming out of people’s tv sets) and when I was ready to start working on a remix for someone, I ended up being pulled into a most unlikely project for me, I helped on animation. Me, who has problems finishing one simple image once in a while, ended up tracing over 150 frames in four days, from morning to evening, except the last day which was much shorter work. I`ll post some further details on the entire animation later, for now I`ll just say it is for an arts degree and the part I did will score me the limited 2cd edition of Angelspit‘s Krankhaus album, the sweetest bit of kinky industrial audio poison to hit my ears in ages 🙂

I have to wait for it of course as that edition is not out yet, but whatever, I`m happy anyway.

In other news.

I`m also on the last few pages of thumbnails for my comic book script, AND I found a second artist for a second project who currently is a bit busy, but that gives me time to finish some scripts. We’ll most likely do a short story before anyway to see how we work together and then I hope to do some longer series or a graphic novel with him.





Spreading out

14 11 2006

So yeah, I finally did it. I got myspace. On the right among the links there are two new:

http://www.myspace.com/borealis_aurora

personal myspace page for friends and stuff.

http://www.myspace.com/dinkrakatau

a page for my music project, Din Krakatau. Now if only the player on that site would stop showing “failed” when I try to play the songs it would be great 😛
(and yes, they used to play well few moments earlier). I`m too tired right now to battle with this.





Tonedeaf Test

11 11 2006

http://jakemandell.com/2006/test-your-musical-skills-in-6-minutes/

Quite interesting test. I scored 86.1% on it which I believe is not bad. According to the test results no one reached 100% yet so I guess I can`t complain.

Now if only I had good enough voice so I would stop hearing all the butchered notes when I try to sing 😛





A rocky start

11 11 2006

a rocky start

Oh yeah. Lost net for a week, then I didn`t feel like writing anything useful for two days. Not that this is useful, but at least it`s funny.





Getting along

2 11 2006

The christian friend story part II.

Yes, it appears we have solved the problem. After few days of arguing I think we came to a silent agreement not to touch the religous stuff and we just chat about other things. Mosfly food actually. I guess you could say all is well, or as well as it can be in a situation like that. Then again entire world is in a similar state, with all the religions/cults/beliefs/antireligions/politics etc clashing together. At least our “conflict” won’t cause a WWIII or anything like that.





Results of boredom

2 11 2006

Yes, I was bored 🙂
Sadly I lost the link to the site where you can make these, but it was some Ragnarok Online avatar generator so it should be possible to find it again someday, when I`m bored again.

Boredom also quite often results in doing silly online tests, some useful, most not. Here’s one for example:

Of course the test is not entirely right (as all online tests). Yet, quite a lot seems to be accurate, enough to be scary how answering 30 or so questions can tell everything about your personality.
