I have another New Media Final presentation tomorrow. I was going to make a flash movie using the story line that Gary came up with – the one about the bottomless pit, but instead I just finished up the one that I had started last summer – the Jeff Millionaire one. I’ll post it soon; it’s still not done! I have to present it at 2:00 tomorrow.
Well I’ve known for a while that I should be looking for new roommates but now I really will have to find somebody new because my current roommate just told me that he’s moving out in July or August. At least I won’t ever have to worry about the rabbit anymore. Steve Meldrum phoned me tonight to catch up on what I’ve been up to. Apparently he doesn’t read the blog. Anyway he is going away to Europe with his wife, Monique, for the summer. I knew they were going but the thing that surprised me was that they sold the house. From what I could tell he seems pretty happy about his situation.
The presentation of my book was successful as expected. To celebrate, Anna-Maria and I, are ordering pizza and watching Maid in Manhattan on DVD.
It might be too early to say that Maid in Manhattan is just a chick flick not worth watching, but I’ll give Anna-Maria the benefit of the doubt and sit through it with her.
The other night we rented The Count of Monty Cristo. I give it 7 out of 10. For those of you that don’t know, I can be very critical of movies. So a 7 out of 10 is pretty good. Anna gives it a 7 or an 8. Glad to see I’m on the right track, after all she is the dramatic one.
I finished the book for my still images class. It’s all ready for the presentation today at 2:00.
Here is a mediated version. It is highly compressed and on a good server so it shouldn’t take long to download, but the version that I copied to VHS is much nicer.
Update: I took down the file.
I’m back in business baby! I guess it was just a virus all along. Now I just have to fix what I broke while trying to fix it. At least my Internet connection is back up.
I came to the University this morning with Anna-Maria and her sister Lana. We went to the make-up shop and I had my face molded with alginate. It was really cold on my face but after about 10 minutes they took it off and it seems to have worked out pretty good. They are going to fill it with plaster and create a positive of my face. They did it as part of their independent study for their make-up class.
Jakob, Josh, and Lana all came to visit Anna last night. Jakob and Josh were supposed to sleep at my house, but Josh went to bed early and I fell asleep on the couch and the next thing I knew we’d all slept over and I had the biggest pain in my neck! I guess it’s my own fault for falling asleep. Lana and I are at the University now and we’re going to watch Anna-Maria’s final project for her TYA (Theatre for Young Audiences) class. Jakob is hanging out with Zee and Josh is writing the ACT.
I’ve been working super hard on my final projects. I am so stupid for leaving them this long. I have been at the school since 9:00 and I’m thinking maybe it’s about time I had some lunch. I can’t believe how much more work I still have to do before Monday.
Anna-Maria is going to make a mold of my face using plaster this Saturday. If you’ve seen the special features on the Fight Club DVD then you’ll know what I’m talking about because it’s the same process that Brad Pitt went through for his makeup in that movie. Anna said that when it was all over I could keep the mold. Anyway I better get back to work.
I’m done all my regular classes and just have finals and review classes now. I am really far behind in my multimedia projects and having said that, I’m going to get to work.
