My side project is a 3d model of my house :)

I also need to get on my painting and sell more. Fuck I am way too fucking busy.

What wut? the side project or the painting? I assume the painting.

I have 4x4 inch canvases, right? And I get fortunes from fortune cookies, yeah? And I paint a scene based on the fortune, glue the fortune on, and sell em for 10-20 bucks depending on how much I like em.

Example: You're future looks sweet.
So I drew a giant ice cream cone with ice cream on top, put a bikini on it and some lady eyes and lips, and had a human male and her toasting with mugs of beer. I was trying to show that he is getting her drunk and having sex with ice cream, possibly.

Another example: Do something unusual today.
A man is walking and shoving a clown into his mouth while a tree looks on in shock. It is my favorite one :)

Kid, what happened with that installation of your work? I thought some of your stuff was going to be showcased for all the world to see.
Biscuit AWAY!

Well, two of my 3d models (well, pictures of them, natch) are hanging in one of the display cases at work. The cases are split between Game Art, Game Design, Movie-making, and Interior Design students. And there's a picture of me finally by my work so it's pretty cool being recognized and being told my work is good.

I finished my tank today finally for the final project (we are gonna animate the tanks!) and the teacher did a critique on all of them in front of the whole class. He looked at mine first and said nobody beat mine and he would be hard pressed to make one similiar, with as few polys. I was so proud :) My teacher did alot of modeling work on the soon to be released Stargate MMO so he just may be the "in" to the industry.

On unrelated note, my old roomates and best friends, Ryan, Sean, and Alex, of the band This Century, just got a new booking agent. The agent? The same man that works with Panic at the Disco, Fallout Boy, and others. Very exciting shit!!!

Btw, if you want to check them out: http://www.myspace.com/thiscentury

Probably not your cup of tea, but it's not your tea they want to replenish.

So I'm writing a Game Design Document for a class and fuck is it hard to type and not check up on myspace for messages, facebook for high scores (none of you ever beat me!!), and basement x for riveting conversations.

fuck!

Jack told me you may have the Mallmonkey's cd containing all their webcomics before they shut down, do you by any chance still do? Because I'd frickin LOVE to get my hands on that, been trying for it for years...

And yes, major school work like we're all stuck doing sucks major ass balls. I need to be working on a huge project but instead I'm letting Jack try to get me drunk, which he failed to do cause the stuff I wanted to buy evidently is the "weak shit". Blurg...

Jedi - I do not. I totally forgot about MallMonkeys, wow. Blast from the MOTHERFUCKING past right there!

Let's see let's see. Sorry for lack of posting but I've been busy.

Work - Saturday is my last day at Fry's! I took a test at a company called 2wire and I passed with flying colors. It's a tech support company I suppose, phone work but it pays pretty well and I am looking forward to making more money. Technically I don't have the job yet, the interview is Thursday and then I have to go through Orientation. I was worried about money since I do live paycheck to paycheck but getting tax refund this year gave me a little wiggle room. Plus i have 20 hours of vacation that I get paid once I leave Fry's. If I don't get the job at 2wire I am pretty well fucked but I do not see this happening.

School - Got a B in all 3 of my classes which is more or less what I expected. I was hoping for an A in Animation but eh... My modeling far surpasses my animation work, and I'm okay with that. I will probably have to switch to night classes if I get the 2Wire job, which sucks because it means I won;'t have classes with all the people I know. But I suppose them are the breaks.

Fun! - Started watching more One Piece, I'm all caught up with Naruto, and I will start Bleach again sometime in April I assume. Been playing alot of Wii games, and alot of Call of Duty 4. I really need to remember to play Gears 2 with Brian. I think we just have different gaming schedules. And sometimes if I'm on playing COD4 and I see him on, I feel like a douche because I'm probably about to log out anyway. Sorry bribri!

Parties - Oy, too much partying lately it seems. Always a good time. Fort Dude (my house name) is good friends with another house and they always have parties and... oy, too much partying lately! I am meeting a lot of people so that's nice. I do feel like I should be slowing down but ehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Girls - Tierra and I are officially over. I'm messing around a bit with a friend named Stephanie but I have my eyes HARD on a girl named Lyssa. She recently got out of a 2 year relationship and I'm not sure how she's vibing me. Hopefully it will turn into something because she is basically me as a female.

Fort Dude is also going to start playing DnD so the nerd factor is at critical levels in the house.

I think that's all I need to type for now.

Perc, vic, yes.

Stocky - Yeah it's pretty nice. Pixar couldn't handle my rebellious youth and the unpunctuality that comes with it.

Brian - Damn, nice dude. I still haven't gotten past the underground part with the giant worms haha, too busy with other games. If you do get CoD4 that would be fucking awesome :D
