It’s getting somewhere

And so they spent months at sea, sailing through endless treacherous water

Knocked Up

Thumbs down. Fairly average. Not that funny at all.

Polar Clock 3.0

Tuesday, July 17th, 2007

I’m a big fan of Pixel Breaker‘s PolarClock, and it’s great to see that he’s remade the engine from scratch using Flash CS3 and Action Script 3 so it runs so much smoother.

I just love how it’s so simple yet, so beautiful.

(Ps. I feel so noob with my Action Script 1 skills…)

Changing thought patterns

Tuesday, July 17th, 2007

Throughout my work day, I’ve begun to realise that it’s hard for me to change thought patterns for work. Say if I’m concentrating on one thought pattern such as coding, I find it very difficult to change to something else like designing. And it usually takes a 1-2 hrs for me to really get into it again.

At work my thought patterns basically fall under two categories: logic and math for coding; and visual and space representation/imagination for designing, telling people what to do, and all the other creative heebeejeebee.

I usually find that after a day’s worth of coding, my creative powers are virtually non existent.

If you haven’t realised already, I can’t multitask to save my life.

Something must be done, Batman!

It’s time

Friday, July 13th, 2007

Time for a change. Time for some money. Time to get out there.

The Plan

* 1 to 2 months off starting from the first day of 2008, then…

* Try some luck with some animation houses

* If that doesn’t work then I’m gonna do something new and join my mate Toan, my long time high school art class friend

* If that doesn’t work then I’m gonna try to get some freelance gigs (3 days a week, the other days will be to do my own thing)

* If that doesn’t work then apply for work at Boost Juice (it’s been a dream)

Gate crashing parties on Facebook

Wednesday, July 11th, 2007

I’m sure I’m not the only one that’s thought of this but… YOU CAN GATE CRASH PEOPLES PARTIES USING FACEBOOK! Well at least in theory anyway. Hey, it’s not like I went on a search in Facebook for parties. People just happen to click on the “I am attending so and so’s party”, which in turn notifies everyone on their friends list in the newsfeed, which then gives you the ability to click on the link that takes you to a page with the party’s details.

Sad? Yes. But HOW AWESOME would it be to have the party’s address in hand so you can catapault wet toilet paper onto the unsuspecting-alcoholic-beverage-consuming patrons using a medieval trebechet such as the one below?

Rise of the Silver Surfer

Wednesday, July 11th, 2007

Thumbs up.

The Silver Surfer is the only reason to watch the Fantastic Four sequel. I couldn’t stop but awe at the Surfer’s make-up when he was walking around without his surfboard. His black eyes were captivating.

Oh and that thing that eats planets looks amazing.

Porn 2.0

Found this article very interesting. The Internet is a bad place.

2008

Monday, July 9th, 2007

Today I had a revelation.

I realised that after I’m done with Peter Paper this year, I’m finally going to be able to start working on other stuff I’ve been putting off.

2008 is going to be good.

I feel a tingling sensation in my gonads.
