Hey everyone! Remember when I mentioned blogs and such last time? Well, this here is the story-blog I mentioned!

 http://questionablyintelligent.blogspot.com/

The Chocthulhu mold is done, and I have pics for posting tomorrow. Then sometime after that I will start writing my game blog stuff and link that to you as well.

Now back to clay!

Well LJ, I just plastered my Etsy on one million different communities, so if you and I share interests I apologize for you seeing the same picture so many times.

Anyway, I figure I may as well post HERE as well because... um... because I'm on a roll or something? I don't know?

Also here is the picture:
The Colour Out of Space Cthulhu

Much better, I feel cleansed to have posted this on EVERY VIABLE LJ SPACE.

Anyway, this Sunday is Cthulhu night, and I am determined to bring many Chocolate Cthulhu Idols to the event to sell. Dark chocolate raspberry with sea-salt to be precise. Once Cthulhu night is over, those will pop up on the Etsy as well.

Once I force my attention span into finishing the details on the sculpture and then make the mold (all tonight) and spend all of tomorrow pouring chocolate over and over again. My mood swings and outright fucktheworld depression have been bad these past two weeks, but I seem to be normalizing enough to do this between now and Sunday. Then I need to write several articles for two blogs I am now writing for, because I decided I want to write again.

One of the blogs is my own, which I hope to generate ad money through by telling stories of my questionable legal activities. Hooray for reasonable doubt!

The other is http://nightmaremode.net/ which was started by my friends! So yay to that!

While sculpting these past two days I watched:

1. A Nightmare on Elm Street 2009 remake - Not good.
2. Friday the 13th 2010 remake - Terribly not good.
3 The Staircase Murders - This may have been a shitty made for TV dramatization that was edited into a movie.
4. This Film is Not Yet Rated - SEE THIS. It is amazing and very revealing of the ratings system.
5. Troll 2 - Everyone loves this, and I have seen it countless times, but wanted to re-watch it for the next movie.
6. Best Worst Movie - The ultimate Troll 2 companion film, such a hilarious look at Troll 2's history and fan-base.

Also I re-watched all of The Walking Dead - and hot damn is that an amazing show. Mostly because the comics are also amazing, and focus on the living people and their lives rather then zombies, which are just a looming threat and motivation.

So yes, that is what I have been up to. Not sure if anyone uses LJ anymore, but if you do - hello!

EDIT-  oh! If you like this, and have Stumble - please up thumb the Etsy! I would be eternally grateful! Or if you spread the link around, that is also awesome! =D

pleased, glad, elated, giddy, happy

The hardest part is over!

I am actually updating this thing! Like, for real!

Yesterday was a twelve hour film day - from 5PM to 5AM I forced my actor, the incredible Mike Rozycki, to suffer in and out of the makeup chair. At the end of the day, I had the highlight of my Division III emblazoned on DV tape - ripe for the editing table.

What was accomplished in that basement was nothing short of Hollywood caliber, and I am incredibly proud of the results we achieved.

So, mostly because I can't contain my glee, I present to you all a teaser image of Mike in full monster makeup!

I need a mini time machine to constantly go back and make the decisions that would be more fun - if less responsible.

Since when do I care if I am well rested before a day of work!? The heat is messing with my way of life!

In other news work alternates between tedium bordering on deadly and light hearted fun in a positive atmosphere. However I do know I want to do more practical effects next job, and without having to commute 3+ hours a day.

Also - Gabe's birthday dinner was pretty successful and fun.

Sleep.

Well would you look at this. I have a journal.

My knee dislocated again - this shit only happens at home, I swear - and I had a headache already, so I'm on painkillers and sorta drowsy.

But anyway - yes! Journal! I have not said hello to you in so very very long! Today I amend to fix this issue. I will try and update regularly, to be true and faithful to you as you both deserve and demand. But first - let us review.

So my last entry was (leaves to check) between semesters! Goodness! Here I am in the summer after my third year, practically standing on the cliffs edge of my Div III year. How time flies. So - Spring Semester:

Academically speaking this was one of my best semesters - I wrote a screenplay I love, a noir horror-comedy set in a modern Lovecraftian MA. I learned how to use Foam Latex and really improved my sculpture skills, casting skills, and molding skills in preparation for Div III. I made some goofy and fun video projects while learning to enhance my video capabilities with Video 1. I also animated again after a bit of time away from the craft for Topics in Animation, finishing up with a fun compositing project.

The youngest sibling unit has just given me an ice-pop - yummy!

Godless skies! I popped it out again ::whimper:: what the hell is up with my knee today?!

-Anyway-

You can see some of the things I just mentioned via these convenient links!

Leave of Leave! - An action movie trailer featuring all the big names in acting today!
Transformation of the Grotesque - Me playing in After Effects and Fusion 5 (before knowing how to de-interlace)
Blobz - Sci-fi horror trailer from last semester!
My YouTube profile page! - For other stuff

I'll post the Foam Latex stuff when it's cleaned up some =)

Socially speaking this semester saw me finally getting to know Alice some! ::gasp:: Yeah, a bit late in the game, but still very nice to finally sit down and hang out with her. Watching Pan's Labyrinth with her was delightful and then she surprised us all by coming back to Hampshire and helping with some of the Spiff Sprocket stuff =)

I also got to know Julia - one of my orientees from this year - at the very tail end, which was nice. It's good to see people enjoying themselves at Hampshire! She came out to dinner with us and saw just how silly we all are - and will be when shes around over the summer! Waha! So many people are around this summer!

Except Alice ::sniffle:: If only she would come and play with us!

So yes - then we have mental health part of the semester. I so dropped the ball for parts of the semester. I fell back into unhealthy work habits which intermingled with not healthy feelings and such. Messy scene - but one I clawed back out of! Isn't that vague!? I'm trying to finish a part of my life in a good clean fashion without it causing trouble with other parts. It's interesting - but I need to move on... just without moving very far... I don't know! ABSTRACTION!

Moving on.

The last bit was graduation! I watched so many wonderful people step up and receive a piece of paper that says they are now educated. Everyone did so many different and wonderful things, immense projects and films and researches and reports! I don't often brim with pride - but I did, as I watched so many awesome people close a chapter of their lives with big blotchy dabs of ink. They best keep in touch... Peter... Becca... Will... I am pointing long bloody implements at you menacingly.

Recapped and wrapped - we progress!

I am currently home on Long Island until Sunday - at which point I drive my new (yet old) car up to my apartment in Amherst and begin my internship at Powderkeg Studios. I get to do compositing, animation, and in general, effects. So needless to say - I am excited.

In the meantime - lots of fun with Niraj and Steven - soon Jimmy as well, Richie too! I visited the High School today and heard about more stabbings and shootings - Lowes donated a fountain rather then money - making for the most out of place fountain ever. I busted my own brother for cutting class by mistake while their as well! Tonight I see Pirates III for the first time - but not the last time - in theaters =)

I also look forward to visiting Ellen in that place she lives this summer for a bit - if my schedule can come together in a smooth and reasonable fashion regarding this. So that should be fun! I get to meet all the people she has told me so much about for the past two years.

So I lack focus when on drowsy inducing painkillers and lost any plan of attack I had for this update - so you all have this wonderful mess of text.

I am excited to open a new chapter in my life this summer - to live with Gabe and Colin - to have Jacob and Lindsay down the street - to have Julia, Jerusha, and Panda a town away - with Keegan and Andrea a few miles away - and Flarnie and Angela and Josh and Steven and Vikki and Dan all around as well! ::splodes::

Once again - if Alice were around it would be perfect! (No pressure)

I want to play and read and work and do projects and so much more with everyone! But for now I will be content with talking to people online while hyper-tired and waiting for Pirates III.

Also I am thirsty!
