No Time
No Time
Nobody can tell me, why time has to flow,
Or why it doesn’t stop, instead it will go.
My one wish, is to be able to bring time to a halt,
To give myself some time, to rectify my faults.
Irony strikes, in how stopping time gives you more,
In theory anyway, the actual science is a chore.
The things you could do, the time you’d save,
There it is again, that word, returning like a wave.
Now if I had the ability, to halt it at will,
Would I use it to help myself, or do deeds that are ill.
If I saw someone, looking danger in the eye,
I could close my eyes, stroll over and perhaps they won’t die.
The other side to this, is applying it wrongly,
Perhaps robbing a bank, or petting someone strongly.
Thus raises the question of morals, good taste and ethics,
Time is fast becoming confusing; I might not ever get it.
It would give me the chance to experience things at pace,
If say on holiday, I could keep the sunset in place.
Or if the perfect moment suddenly arises,

A Dance Macabre - P1
The girl was screaming as the demon lunged for her a second time.  Its claws ripped the air beside her head as she leapt to the side, almost stumbling on her high heels.  She began to run, heading for the nearest viable way out and grabs a fire escape ladder.  The demon snarled and thundered towards her, gunning for the sound of her heart thudding like a blacksmiths hammer.  It grabbed her ankle, pulling her down from the extendable ladder, and throwing her on the ground below.  Following suit, it jumps down and stands straddled over the quivering victim to be.  It raises it’s claws, poised to swing down and plunge into her chest for the prize, the heart.  She closes her eyes, knowing what was to happen next, praying.
   3 gunshots reverberate off the cold, wet stony walls of the alleyway.  The girl’s eyes open in shock, swiftly, expecting to be missing o

Ah, spring.  A month of new beginnings, a month for reconciliation ... and even more god damned assignments!

But lets talk about what good things are going on in the land of me.  Well, I've started to dabble in the world of PSP Homebrew production.  What was once a brick posing as an mp3 player, is now the portal to my gaming heritage thanks to custom firmware.  So now I've decided I'd take a stint at the old homebrew side of things and see what I can come up with.  I've done C++ and OpenGL programming before, so I should hopefully be able to throw some of that about and see what the little thing says about it.

Actually, I may start by doing something simple.  We'll see.

What else ... oh yes, my assignments.  As much as I despise the little buggers, some are actually quite creative and fun.  Creative Technologies, for example, asks us (as in groups) to create something to do with IPTV.  In our groups case, something like Top Gear but for video games.  Should be a riot, provided we all pull our weight on the workload.  Data Networks and the Web asks us to make a *gasp* Website that connects to a database (i.e. e-mail notification system).  As tediously simple as that sounds, it gives me a chance to splash out on the site design itself.  If anyone has seen flyakite's website, thats a similar concept to what I want to achieve ... sometime soon D:

Personal stuff now.  It's all a bit quiet on the homefront, quite boring actually.  I've just finished my last bit of commission work and taking a break.  So if anyone wants to drop me a line on anything 3d based (not characters, at least not yet) please do so ... just give it a week or so.  Friday just gone was quite fun, saw a buddy outside GAME at around 8:30am with his girlfriend waiting to pick up FFXII on it's release.  I thought it was quite cool of them, til they told me they had been there since 5am o_O.  So I hung around in the off-chance they collapsed of sleep-deprivation.

In a previous entry, I mentioned a fan-fic I was contemplating.  Well, as slowly as it's going I'm in the process of writing up the intro.  Be warned however, I (and this is with extreme emphasis) suck at writing stories.  Scripts, piece of cake, but into actual narrative?  Like pissing on an oil rig fire, pointless.

ANYWAY, I'm sure you filthy rabble have better things to do than sit around reading about my woes and such.  So get on out there and do something productive.

Like what?

Hell if I know.
