Today I named the floater in my right eye Hal.

From now on, he is important to me.

He flies around and redirects my attention.

My own personal Navi.

Hey!

Listen!
So I've been learning Adobe After Effects and it's blowing my mind.

I.  Love.                                        It.

I had no idea what it was really capable of until I really got my hands dirty, but now that I've made a few test renders... woooo buddy.  I'll probably be posting some of that stuff maybe, but I'll definitely be taking a stroll down animation lane here in the coming winter times.

You can animate liquify, man.  It oozes around and you can ANIMATE IT.  Any kind of effect you can apply in photoshop can be brought to life with After Effects.  It's unbelievable.

dotcommer knows what I'm talkin about, don't you dot.

Teach me.  Learn me.  Love me, dot.

just checking in to let you know justhost is still pissing me off.

this time they're billing me after I've canceled my account.

that is all.
is a pile of shit.

for any of you unfortunate enough to currently be with them, try to cancel your account.  It's okay, you have to go through a million steps. You couldn't do it if you wanted to.  After you send your initial request to cancel your account, they make one last groping effort towards your service by offering you 6 free months of hosting.

So if any of you have this horse asshole as your webhost, you can either leave like you should, or send a request to cancel your account then accept their offer and steal 6 months of hosting from them.  Hell, in 6 months, try it again.  I bet it would work.

Good day.
oooooOOOoooh

I'm not dead!  HAHA!  On the contrary.  I've been working on another spot the difference game and it's nearly done.  What I'm excited about is submitting the levels here so you can all see that I haven't been a useless sack for the past few months.

I'm going to be submitting lots and lots that I've been doing lately and putting them up for prints too.  I'm kind of surprised I haven't set up a prints account before, I just figured no one would buy anything.

WILL ONE BUY THING?

TIME WILL TELL...

The differences in how babies and adults pay attention are primarily caused by the unformed nature of the prefrontal cortex, a brain area just behind the eyes. While the prefrontal cortex has been greatly enlarged during human evolution - it's responsible for a wide variety of cognitive abilities, from directed attention to abstract thought - it's also the last brain area to fully develop, and often isn't done developing until late adolescence.

Although scientists have long held the lack of a functional prefrontal cortex responsible for all sorts of "childish" behaviors, researchers are beginning to realize that, sometimes, it might actually be better to allow the prefrontal cortex to loosen its grip.

A recent brain scanning experiment by researchers at Johns Hopkins University found that jazz musicians in the midst of improvisation - they were playing a specially designed keyboard in a brain scanner - showed dramatically reduced activity in the prefrontal cortex. It was only by "deactivating" this brain area that the musicians were able to spontaneously invent new melodies. The scientists compare this unwound state of mind with that of dreaming during REM sleep, meditation, and other creative pursuits, such as the composition of poetry. But it also resembles the thought process of a young child, albeit one with musical talent. Baudelaire was right: "Genius is nothing more nor less than childhood recovered at will."

this is such an unadulterated example of art, I don't have the words.

audio/video editing coupled with a brilliant rebellious web design, colors and a good url... this is the new bar as far as I'm concerned.

take notes.
when I'm browsing the internet and hear "CONGRATULATIONS YOUVE BEEN SELECTED TO..."

I immediately close your stupid fucking web page.

"Adobe Photoshop requires 1.1 GB of free disk space.  You have 912 GB remaining"

yes
"If there's one thing I wish I could go back to highschool and do, it would be to get up out of my seat and start a fight.

All his friends would have beaten the shit out of me, but it would have been worth it just to land one solid punch.

I still fantasize about holding his hand down to the bandsaw in shop class.

To tell him it was for all the mean things he'd said earlier that day, or yesterday, or last year, or whenever.  That would make it justice.

One finger comes off for every person you've made fun of so much that it's left an impact on their psyche.

I'd sit there, listening to him make mean jokes to the kid sitting in front of me.  Wondering why the teacher heard all this and never did anything about it.  There was never any justice.  I'd stare at the back of his neck during class and wonder how hard I'd have to stab him before my ball point pen would break the skin.  Where I could stab him without running the risk of killing him.

Daydreaming.

Feeling the solid crack of the school's fire hydrant over the back of his head when he wasn't looking.

Busting into the bathroom and holding his head under the toilet water until he passed out.

I would be expelled but I would make god damn clear to the teachers what my reasons were.  I'd repeat word for word all the nasty things he'd said.  I'd tell them what it was like to watch him make fun of the same people day after day and how the teacher did nothing.

"Not acting out against violence is violence." I'd quote to them. "...and that means psychological violence too."

But then he'd just be seen as the victim of a violent outburst and not an asshole who got what he had coming to him.

People would say to him "I'm so sorry this had to happen to you, ***** was just a sick twisted individual.  I hope you have a speedy recovery, everybody loves you."

It makes my jaw clench.

For those of you who are still in school, know your enemy.

It's not always good to stay seated."



found this on 4chan.  the guy asked if what he wrote reminded us of anyone we knew/know in school.  it sure as hell did for me, so thought I'd post it here.  until tonight I'd forgotten about some of those same feelings I used to have in school.
