About This Site

This sweet blog of mine will serve as a temporary home for all of my content for the next few months as I ready everything organized with my own domain that I'll be getting sometime within then. If you'd like to check out my old domain, take a look through it here.

In the meantime, it will serve as a "collective" of sorts of all of my currently hosted pages, my blog, and links to all of my external stuff like Facebook and Flickr.

In my absence...

Yeah, so the reason I have been around in other places than this blog recently is because I've been finishing the spring semester and then getting married. Which sort of overlapped with each other, which in addition to moving everything and taking care of other excess paperwork, has obviously gotten me bogged down in everything involved. It's only now that I'm starting to find a swing of things to get into and becoming settled down in something resembling regular stuff.

Getting married was fantastic. I don't really have any idea as to why I took so long with Sharla, as she's the best thing that has ever happened to me. I didn't really realize how lucky I was until after we had become married and got to hang out with each other all the time. It sounds sort of stupid, but I don't care. Everything is just better with her there.

Now that I've jumped into this headfirst with her, I can start focusing on the Summer. Like most of the projects that I want to get accomplished. One of which will be buying a domain for my website and finishing the design for that. I hope to have that done by the end of June or the beginning of July at the latest.

Holy crap.

I didn't think I'd live to see the day...

    Original Unaltered Star Wars Trilogy on DVD

    In response to overwhelming demand, Lucasfilm Ltd. and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment will release attractively priced individual two-disc releases of Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. Each release includes the 2004 digitally remastered version of the movie, as well as the original theatrical edition of the film. That means you'll be able to enjoy Star Wars as it first appeared in 1977, Empire in 1980, and Jedi in 1983.

    See the title crawl to Star Wars before it was known as Episode IV; see the pioneering, if dated, motion control model work on the attack on the Death Star; groove to Lapti Nek or the Ewok Celebration song like you did when you were a kid; and yes, see Han Solo shoot first.

Of course, I am upset that this wasn't released in the first place. But that's beside the point. This is getting heavily hinted at for Christmas.

"Standoff"

This was the first Dirrty Apple short that I've been able to use within a class project. I used this as part of an art site that I did for graphic design, but the sucky thing is that I won't be able to find out how much my teacher liked it because it's part of my final.

Anyhoo, here it is. Hope you like it.
