Hair

Thursday, December 29th, 2005

So yea….I’ve been looking at my hair over the past few days, and it really is looking a little long…

I’m gonna look into getting an appointment for a haircut before New Years…

Hmm…maybe I’ll look into shaving too?

Recently I’ve been hooking up webcam conferences with some of my friends in Germany =P

Yesterday

Thursday, December 29th, 2005

Yesterday, I woke up at 7:15 and transcoded a video I had rendered over night into wmv format and threw it onto the web. I sent Clay an email and he reviewed it while I was at work.

I worked for just over 8 hours, then drove home. When I got home, I used the feedback from Clay to fix up the video, as well as finish editing. It was only a draft I had done up. I was home by 5pm, edited for 3 hours with a dinner break. Rendered that one, then edited another video to go on the same tape. When all was complete, it was 2am, but I had the final MiniDV in my hand for Clay.

It was a good 8am-2am (18 hours) work day yesterday. I’m a little tired from the five hours of sleep on either side of that day. But I’m glad I got the tape done =) He should be picking it up from me in about an hour.

Louix XIV

Thursday, December 29th, 2005

This morning I woke up to my alarm cranked up on volume…However, I may have just fallen right back to sleep if I hadn’t noticed the sound…it was a song from Louis XIV. At last year’s Whistler’s Film contest, I got an all-access media pass and I went and talked to these guys and they got signed a music release form for my team. We used two of their songs in our final video, and they were pretty key parts since we had nothing to put in place of them!

They gave me their cell numbers, and I was supposed to call them and send them a copy of what we made, but I recieved no answer whenever I called. I think I left a message, but it was months ago. Maybe if I saw them again….whatever…I still got the cell numbers =P

Yea, I realize that it was 7:15am, and the radio was just playing a filler song to kill time to get up to their 8am popular time slot. But it was still cool! I’ve heard them two or three times before on the radio too.

My logo…

Wednesday, December 28th, 2005

Awe…I have some bad news.

When I went to go fill in my timesheet, I noticed that they had removed my Christmas logo from the website, and we’re back to the regular logo. I mean, it’s just the first day back…only three days since Christmas. I still have my decorations up at home. But the logo has changed back.

Christmas is fading away. We’re fading back to normality.
