So, as per usual, music is provided by the kick-ass To Slay Zombie Newton. Will I ever replace them as my soundtrack? I have no idea. Find me another band willing to let me use their stuff for free and with minimal credits, and I'll take a listen to them. *grins* For now though, I think I'll stick with what works.
I shot this whole thing in about a half an hour today, having originally planned to do something completely different -- which I guess I'll save for a later video I guess. The original idea was far less timing based, so I guess reusing it later would be fairly easy. Going down to the river at Putnam Park was just sort of a spontaneous diversion, and I'm happy with what I ended up with. It really was just absolutely gorgeous out today, and I do just love living right across from the river.
I know I've been updating less than normal, but I've been fairly busy. I swear, I'm pretty much pulling my hair out at this point. I had intended to make a few blog posts last week, including one where I pointed you to the full MarsCon 2007 Report - but it, like many things, just sort of passed by the wayside.
What kind of sucks is that this next week looks to be worse. On the upside, I can promise some new site content -- as I've made a short film for the NoBrandCon plotline, and just haven't added it over here yet. In theory I'll blog more - but as I have two midterms, a presentation, work projects, and quite a bit of other stuff going on... who knows. My sanity peters on the edge, I swear... and if I start bleeding out my ears and chanting "They're coming to get me" over and over again, I don't think anyone would really end up being surprised.
Fortunately, in a week, I go back to Milwaukee for Spring Break. I'm kind of excited about this, as I've been functioning at near melt-down levels just to get everything done on schedule. Seriously, I'm getting completely exhausted - and that's with making sure I get a reasonable amount of sleep. Spring Break couldn't come at a better time, I swear to whatever friggin' diety is convenient.
I'm going to cut this off here though, and get back to work on some stuff.
Your blog shows an example of two things that make me smile. I love that in the spring any set of stairs that was not regularly shoveled turns into a ramp of ice, and I love that whenever anyone sees a duck they're astonished and need to say "Oh wow, look at the DUCK!" as if everyone hasn't seen ducks about 20 times a year. I always do it, there's just something about ducks. I mean, who says "Hey, it's a sparrow!" or "Ooh, look at the fish"? No one. It's always about the ducks.
