Battlestar Galactica

Oh, I mean that in a good way, just so you know, the title that is. Lately I’ve been watching less movies, and instead I have been watching more TV shows. I think the reason for this is that so many of the movies that have come out recently are just boring. Not that there isn’t a bunch of fantastically horrible TV shows, because there is. But there is also a large amount of great series that I’ve missed over the years, and the one I’ve decided to watch now is Battlestar Galactica.

Week 8, Blocking!

Sunday, August 23rd, 2009

Holy crap, week 8 of class 3 at Animation Mentor is over already. Time flies by way to fast these days, I can barely keep up. This week has been all about blocking out the final assignment for this class, and it has been loads of fun, as the blocking part of the animation process usually is. Then you enter the part that every animator knows and loves, spline-hell, the part where you often wonder why the hell you’re doing this in the first place. In the end it’s always very rewarding though.

Expanding my Movie Collection

Saturday, August 8th, 2009

I decided to spend a tiny little bit of extra money on myself before I gotta pay AM again, because, hell, I just wanted too. So I figured I’d expand my movie collection a little bit. For that I did what I always do when buying movies, browsed through Play.com and filled my shopping cart with ridiculous amounts of stuff, and eventually had to trim it down as not to bankrupt myself completely. Great fun.

Last Time, I Promise!

Friday, August 7th, 2009

I just couldn’t help myself. You see, I had this one little Photoshop file laying around with and old design idea that I had been playing around with, so I decided to have another look at it, and it ended up with a new design for my blog. But this is the last time I’m doing a new desing. I promise! After a little while I really wasn’t happy with the old white one, but I’ve been using this one for a while with the Theme Test Drive plugin so that only I could see it, just to make sure I would get tired of looking at it.

YouTube, I hate you.

Wednesday, August 5th, 2009

And I know that deep down inside you feel the same way. YouTube has a strange ability to completely ruin my productivity. I have yet to figure out how it does it, but one day I will. Trust me. This time around the reason for my lack of doing anything remotely useful during my day is Eddie Izzard. Thanks to a video HerrMyklebust posted on his blog.
