I'll need a dog-sitter for Sasha from December 18-28. Such a position would be compensated (if desired) by money or a nice dinner or whatever.

This (the first half of the clip. Haven't watched the second half.) is a great example of one of the many reasons why I love the Armored Core series. Epic scale? They has it.

So I got into the show at Fort Whoop-Up this summer. They usually do a murder mystery, but this year they've decided to go with a gunfight. We'll be using actual black powder blanks, so this is NOT your standard cap-gun fight. We're bringing the freaking cannons into play. If you'd like to come see it (I recommend it), the shows are the evenings of:
JULY: 9, 10, 11, 17, 18, 24, 25, 31
AUGUST: 1, 7, 8, 14, 15, 21, 22
I believe there's some sort of meal that's a part of the event, so if you're interested call the Fort at (403)329-0444 for ticket prices, details, etc.

Next order of business: For those who don't know, I consider the Pontiac Aztec and the Chrysler PT Cruiser to be two of the ugliest cars ever designed. I have recently found out about a new car that gives both of them a run for their money. The Nissan Cube:
Now, don't get me wrong, the idea is neat. It's an inexpensive "car" (~$17,000) that's designed to be non-conformist. At least, as non-conformist as a box on wheels can be (hence the name "Cube"). For one, it's intentionally asymmetrical. Not necessarily a bad thing, but again, the Nissan Cube is fugly. For two, it has an optional interior shag carpet (yes, you have to pay extra for it). It's not even in a useful place (the floor), but rather it is a 5-7 inch circle on the dashboard. Again, this could be cool if you could use it as a place to store your cell phone/iPod, etc. but it in fact comes with a large label warning you against putting anything there, as it'll just fall off or become a hazard while driving.
They. Make. You. Pay. For. A. Fucking. Circle. Of. Carpet. That. Just. Sits. There. And. Doesn't. Do. A. Damn. Thing!!!
While I'm sure it'll establish a fan base, I personally want to shoot whoever decided to give this entire project a green light.

So I just went through an incredibly fucked up hour or so. To put it one way, it was as though somebody kicked my imagination into overdrive, but forgot to tell it to make any damn sense!

It started as an incredible surge of creative energy that felt like it was rushing to my fingertips, but couldn't come out. Then I started getting random snippets of thought: names, colors, shapes, motions, whatever. None of them really correlated to each other in any way, just kinda spilling forth as they pleased.

Eventually, I got restless enough that I chose to go out and walk around; just see where it took me. If you're familiar with stream of consciousness writing, imagine full body stream of consciousness for about an hour or so. I swear I must've looked like I was doing a really fucked up dance around Nicholas Sheran Park (yes, it took me around the whole park).

I just did whatever my creativity wanted to do. If it said go left, I went left. If it said shrug my shoulders, I did that. It had me shouting, whispering, spinning, twirling, swearing, questioning...

At the end it got colder outside, or maybe I just began to notice as it petered out, but eventually it just cooled off, and I came home. Figured I'd write the experience down in case anyone wanted to read it, though I guess it's the kind of thing people probably wouldn't be interested in. Though, if you did find it interesting, kewl.

So I applied for a theatre-based job today. Probably one of the most awesome offers I've ever seen.

The job offer is from Consort School in Consort, AB (east of Red Deer, like Medicine Hat is east of Lethbridge). They're putting on a production of "Pirates of Penzance" (by grade 8, 10, & 12 students), and they want a University drama student to come up and help them out.

The job would be only four days (two in April, two in June), and would involve teaching the very basic fundamentals of stage action such as movement on stage, stage combat, characterization, etc.

Doing this would garner Assistant Director credit, room and board are provided, and pays $800!!!

If you ask me, that's a sweet deal.

Pulled out of Emo-angsty-ness. Thanks for the support!

Any of you whom I've talked to about my Angel/Demon movie idea knows I've talked about the idea of swords with angel/demon wings as the blades. For those who don't know, here's a brief summary:

Angels and Demons, existing on other planes of existence from this one, are unable to affect objects existing on this plane of existence. As such, they partner with a human whom is granted a sword of an angel or demon's wing. The sword must be wielded by the human, as it exists on this plane, but channels the angelic or demonic powers of the human's partner.

Well, I finally got down and drew a concept sketch of the swords. Not really very refined, and I wish they were more polished, but I really just wanted to see how the blades and guards looked. Check it out on DeviantArt if you want:
(no, I'm not doing the thumbnail again because DeviantArt and Livejournal hate each other.)

Lastly, there's a girl at work whom I've always found highly attractive (physically, mentally, and personality), but have always considered a non-option since she had a boyfriend. She has recently broken up with her boyfriend, ending their long relationship. While kinda bummed out and sorry for her, I kinda can't help but do a little happy-dance inside. Though, of course, true to form I'm muddling up all my thoughts by thinking too much about it. I'm just gonna try to step back, get my thoughts in order, and not least of all: give her some space and time!
