11:56 pm - The Deep
Interesting poem I found in the comments for a Donkey Kong Country song on youtube. I just love the imagery of it, so I wanted to post it on here for my own future reference.

I feel as if I'm sinking into the deep,
with all of my troubles left behind me.
My bubbles dance above,
ascending back to the top while I fall deeper.
Every ripple, every bubble is a crease in the timeless space my body has joined.
The light fades, and I become a shroud in the dark.
A shadowed form sinking slowly to places Man will never see,
to places I myself cannot see.
When the song ends I again am on the surface,
home to a reality I can see and feel but nowhere as real as the deep.

01:16 am - Kaleidoscope
The lights, they search for something.
But what?
Drifting. Faster then slower they collide with one another.
When up becomes down and down becomes up, I find myself there.
A never-ending reflection of my soul in this kaleidoscope of life.

A friend of mine posted a status on facebook saying he was an ever-changing kaleidoscope, and I felt inspired to write a short poem based on the thought of being a kaleidoscope. Enjoy.

05:46 am - Too Much Sugar + No Sleep + Disney teenage singers =
I'm currently sitting in the chair at my computer bouncing uncontrollably up and down at almost 6 AM. No joke. I'm actually concentrating to see the words I'm typing as I see them moving up and down in front of me on the screen. Curses to you, yellow cake!!!! And you too Jordan Pruitt and Aly & AJ. Well, I can't curse you: I love you all so much. But I can't even work because of this infernal bouncing. And if I'm not bouncing I'm shaking as I try to draw on my screen. Should I be worried? Haha.

05:00 pm - Some recent things I've been working on
Yeah, so I haven't had a whole lot of time to myself lately. Work has been crazy lately. I've been putting in a lot of hours. But, hey, at least it's something I like. I love me some flash! :)

So here are a few things I've been bouncing back and forth between but haven't managed to make time to finish. One of them is somewhat finished, but I'm not allowed to post it on my deviantART until my friend Emily finishes hers to go with it.

Oh, and sorry for not making them under a cut. Unfortunately I'm slightly unskilled with that kind of stuff and don't know how. heh. A small flaw of mine I'm afraid, but this is why I'm an animator and not a programmer. :-P

Jessie Bannon from The Real Adventures of Jonny Quest. I always loved her so much! I have to wait for Emily to finish her JQ picture before I can post, though.

Unfinished Brave Fencer Musashi illustration

Yeah, I know. Vomitously cute. haha

The girl from Secret of Mana reinterpreted in a realistic form. Completely being painted in Photoshop with nothing more than photos for reference. No sketch for this one.

Cornet and Ferdinand from Rhapsody A Musical Adventure. Yeahhhh. I haven't worked on this in months, but I really should finish it.

And lastly

So much left to do to this flash illustration, but it also is a work in progress.

So there's an update for all you guys. I know I don't update that much, but I just wanted an excuse to show you that I have been working on some stuff if you didn't see it on my deviant page. Take care!!

01:39 pm - Very weird dream... but AWESOME
So how about I had one of the strangest but most awesome dreams last night? I felt I needed to post this not only to share it with others but also to remind myself before I forget (you know how quickly dreams fade from your mind).

All right, so I was at this summer camp type of place, and there were a bunch of people there. Like all roughly around my age or older. And among the people there were also famous people including my most favorite Canadian musician/actor, Tyler Kyte. It was an awesome dream right then and there. Haha. But then it gets even better. I was walking with the group to one of the lodges, and they were doing some kind of group activity inside that looked more like something you'd do in a classroom. So I decided to keep from doing it I was going to pull some kind of prank. So I threw this balloon full of slimy stuff on the ground and had it splatter on some of the girls. And they said that to be fair I should have some of it dumped on me, too. So they dumped it on my head, and it ran all down my back. and I was like, "Ughhhh!!!! I feel like a giant block of Spam!! This is so gross..." So then we get over to the lodge, and all of them go in but me and a few other guys, one of which being Tyler Kyte.

So he comes over to me, and he's like, "Haha. That slime thing was awesome, dude. That totally rocked." And then instead of going into the lodge we went over to a place that had a porch swing made of like cedar and sat on it, and his friends stood around talking nearby. So then we start swinging, and he looks over at me and says, "Y'know, me and my friends are in a band. You should check us out sometime. I think you'd like our sound." To which I replied, "Oh, I listen to your music myspace like everyday. Haha. Yes, it's dorky, but I love your music." And then he said something about a goofy cartoon he draws from time to time, so I reply, "You know, I go to school for animation. Y'know like cartoons and stuff." He looks at me and laughs. Then he says, "Oh yeah? That's pretty cool, dude."

Then I look away for a bit, and when I look back about half a minute later he's gone. And in his place Drew Barrymore is sitting there. She was like, "Let's dance. Come on! Get up and come with me." But instead of dancing we get on a fourwheeler, and I look at her confused to say, "Ummm... I thought we were going to dance. And won't we get in trouble for doing this?" She smiles and says, "Come on. You need a little adventure in your life, and I never get hurt. We'll be fine." So somehow the place is coated in snow, and she speeds off while I'm flying in the air barely holding onto her torso and then pops a wheelie. Then she gets thrown off the front, and I hop off the back. And the fourwheeler slows to a stop just before hitting her. When we get to eachother we realize that we're surrounded by a pack of fierce snow wolves who are very unhappy with us disturbing their territory. We look off to the distance and see a cottage and try to make our way there without getting attacked. Drew made it to the door, but I stood behind and braced myself as one of the wolves got close. The wolf sunk its teeth into my right wrist, and I started to scream like a little girl. It hurt SO bad. But then a cat ran out of the cottage and scared the wolves away. Haha.

After that, I think I passed out from shock and woke up to find myself in bed with Drew Barrymore. Tyler Kyte walks in as I'm coming to consciousness, and he's like, "What's going on here?! You and Drew???" To which I sit up quickly and say, "No! No! No!!! It's not what it looks like! I was attacked, and I passed out to find myself here." He walks out, and I chase after him. And I see that they're having a pool party outside the room I was in. As I'm chasing after him, I end up falling in the pool. But when I resurface I don't see him. So I swim over to the other end of the pool and see a man standing there talking to Alexz Johnson (whom if you didn't know is also a Canadian musican/actress. She and Tyler Kyte both work together on the TV show Instant Star). I just looked at her in awe, and then Tyler walks over and offers to help me out of the pool. And that's all I remember. It was SUCH a fun/weird dream. I wish I remembered everything about it, but that's pretty much all of it in a nutshell.

The Everything Test

There are many different types of tests on the internet today. Personality tests, purity tests, stereotype tests, political tests. But now, there is one test to rule them all.

Traditionally, online tests would ask certain questions about your musical tastes or clothing for a stereotype, your experiences for a purity test, or deep questions for a personality test.We're turning that upside down - all the questions affect all the results, and we've got some innovative results too! Enjoy :-)

You are more emotional than logical, more concerned about others than concerned about self, more atheist than religious, more loner than dependent, more lazy than workaholic, more rebel than traditional, more artistic mind than engineering mind, more idealist than cynical, more leader than follower, and more introverted than extroverted.

As for specific personality traits, you are innovative (86%), artistic (82%), adventurous (62%), romantic (57%).

College Student82%
Young Professional80%
Old Geezer67%
Life Experience

Your political views would best be described as Liberal, whom you agree with around 57% of the time.
Your attitude toward life best associates you with Working Class. You make more than 0% of those who have taken this test, and 98% less than the U.S. average.

If your life was a movie, it would be rated PG.
By the way, your hottness rank is 0%, hotter than 0% of other test takers.

11:30 am - Finally got one
Yeah, so I finally got a Livejournal. Pretty spiffy, huh? :-P I don't know if I'll use it that much. I'll probably just use this account so that I can leave comments and read certain people's blog entries. Or perhaps if I post a blog on xanga for my little hillbilly friends from back home to read, I'll go ahead and repost it on here for whatever intents and purposes. 'cause I know if you're reading this you're just dying to know every little detail of my life. So I guess I can go ahead and make use of this. I promise I'll change the layout and stuff as soon as I get everything under control.

So I've been having a lot of fun this past week (aside from my computer committing suicide when I went to bed on Thursday night). I finally got to hang out with Joey yesterday, and it was great fun! Despite not having anywhere to really go or anything to do, we still managed to keep ourselves entertained. Not a boring moment during our escapade which is a rarity, because most of the people I hang out with can't do that. We have to be doing something in order for it to be enjoyable, but I liked just being able to walk around aimlessly and talk. I felt like such a dork at points with some of the things I did and said, but I don't think he really seemed to notice or mind. All in all, I give spending time with Joey a 10/10. I definitely can't wait to do it again! :-D

So today I get to go to school and have a lovely time doing homework. Yes-sir-ree-bob, it shall be a blast. Haha. I guess this is all for now. Take care and have a great day!
