Don’t Worry, We Made It Wrong On Purpose…

I just read this article on gamespot about the new PSP and I have to say that I am dissapointed.

I still don’t know if I am going to get a PSP and even if I did it would most likely be to play turn-based strategy and RPG where the problem wouldn’t be that profound, but WTF?
Did a memo go out one day with the message “Hey guys. Today we are making the buttons and remember that marketing has found out that we are not allowed to fuck up more that one of them.”

Seriously, I am not an online comics guy, but this is one of the news that makes me wish that I were.

Shiny

We are still doing cleanup this week. The good news is that I seem to get faster at it. The bad news is that I am afraid the reason for it is that I am getting better at cutting corners and not because I am actually getting better at it.

In other news I just remembered (again) that I still haven’t written anything new for the “about” page, even though I promised to have something done by christmas.
So, in light of previous experience, I hereby solemly promise to do something for the “about” page no later than at some point in the future.
That should give me a bit of time.

Love In The Time Of Science

Lyrics from Baby Blue


Boxing shadows in my sleep
It’s the company I keep
The perfect exercise
As I grow older

I can’t believe what God has done
He took the heat out of the sun
And now it seems the world
Is growing colder

Apparently Emiliana Torrini had made more albums than I was aware of. That is something I must look into more.
For those who don’t know her, she is the one who sang Gollums Song in the end of The Two Towers.

Anyways, I heard that she is soon to put out a new album. I am both happy and worried by this. I very much liked the one I already own, but from what I can tell the new will be much different from Love In The Time Of Science. I really want to like the new one but I am not sure I will.
But at least check out Love In The Time Of Science. Very Recommended.

Aftermath

Things not to do when you want to make a photo-documentary about a natural disaster (or whatever that little blowabout we had last weekend is called):
1) Make sure that there is something interesting to take pictures of
2) Do not give cleanup time to get their job done
3) Do not take blurry pictures

Now you know, so do not make my mistakes :)

Rubble

No Roof

Wannabe artistic “No Roof”

In other news we actually had cleanup this week. Not the back-breaking, rubble removing kind needed on the pics, but the back-sagging, wrist wrecking kind needed to do animated features for the big screen. I have been told that I am getting quite good at it, but that doesn’t mean that I love it.
I do learn a lot of things that are usefull further down the road and that I like. Some parts are also quite mindless which is nice on top of a week like last, with Lawrence.

And yes, I am quite proud of the little rhyming there with the rubble-removing and wrist-wrecking…

All The Things That I Forgot.

Or at least some of it. This post should actually have been posted a long time ago.

So, that was that year. Hopefully the new brings more posts to this log. God knows that I started writing enough, but never got around to finishing them. I wil try not to do it like that any more.

This week has been, as my teacher put it, brutal. Friday was okay. The rest was starting school at 10am and going home at somewhere between 11pm and 1am. I fear that this is not much worse than can be expected from the business that I am getting into but for now I am blissfully ignorant. I refrain from asking about it because I fear the answer.
It was a very cool week, however. It really showed me a comepletely new way of thinking about images. I am still not sure that I get half of what the teacher was going on about, but that’s ok. I am sure that I will get it eventually. I just can’t help thinking about where I would have been today if somebody had beaten this into my brain 4 years ago.

As a reaction to thata I spend the entire weekend, bar a little time to write this and a bit of shopping, watching movies, anime and TV. I enjoy weekends like that, except they never seem very long and I never feel like I really got annything from them. I wish I could find a way to not do anything at all and at the same time get a lot of things done. But I guess we all feel like that.

Saturday also brought the worst storm I can remember. It probably wasn’t much compared to some of the tropical storms. In little mediocre Denmark, hovever, it was pretty bad. I got a branch in my head.

BitTorrent

I just read this article on wired which i found very interesting. I would like to say something profound about how I see the future of file sharing and the distribution of movies, but I can’t really come up with anything.

Instead you get this quote from the article:

The Pirate Bay is a BitTorrent tracking site in Sweden with 150,000 users a day. In the fall, it posted a torrent for Shrek 2. Dreamworks sent a cease-and-desist letter demanding the site remove it. One of the site’s pseudonymous owners, Anakata, replied: “As you may or may not be aware, Sweden is not a state in the United States of America. Sweden is a country in northern Europe [and] US law does not apply here. … It is the opinion of us and our lawyers that you are fucking morons.” Shrek 2 stayed up.

Do not take it as though I think that downloading movies is a good thing. It is not; it is illegal. I just don’t like the movie industry’s attitude. Serves them right.

Also, later, hopefully, I’ll have up another post.
