Honestly while I was watching the finished product with my classmates I was thinking: "Oh maybe I can tweak it, here, here, and here, make it the most amazing short ever made." I still think I could do some improvements too it, but I'm happy with the result.
Of course I could spend my whole life devoted to that minute and a half making every little thing perfect. But I think my time would be better spent working on making newer better animations and characters. Which I plan to do all summer before going to Siggraph in San Diego.
Also I have plenty of other projects. Finishing my post production class comes to mind right away. I could go back to work on the game, I could go back to the drawing board, the list can go on.
I guess I will always panic when I finish a project I've been working on for so long. Cause at some point you have to declare it done and bring it to the public. It's only natural I think.
That's all I feel like saying. Night kids, sleep tight.

More work work. Later.
"The next time I see you, you'll turn away. I'll say "Hello" but you'll keep on walking. The next time you see me, I'll turn away. Do you remember where we used to sleep at night? I couldn't feel you, you're always so far away."

For the longest time I referred to the other cartoon version of me as "Cartoony Tim". However upon writing this comic I thought of a better name for him...ME. That's right, I'm thinking of referring to Cartoony Tim as Me from now on. Any objections?.
That's it, night folks.

It actually happened yesterday, but I couldn't hep but wanna write about it. It seems too funny to me.
So on Tuesday at some bar Me and my musical partner Dan will be playing and open mic night somewhere on 19th and Samson (I think). I'll get more details on that.
I'm also freaking out. SCHOOL IS ENDING SOON!!!! I'll have to turn in my thesis by the end of the week, and I have to turn in my project for class after that. WHICH I HARDLY HAVE WORKED ON!!!! *sigh*

Well I turned in my animation and a still for thesis yesterday. Today they rejected my still and accepted my animation under the condition I finish it, as if I wasn't. Also Li said he'd let me put the still in if I work on it. So good times.

Yea, I'm tired and when I'm tired I say things without any real thought or care for making sense to other people. Haha.
"I'm not antisocial, and it's nothing that's reproachful. It's just natural! It's only me! I can't think of anybody else I'd rather spend some one on one time with. It's not that hard to see, It's only me."

Another over night at the lab so kinda tired. I must say Dave Thomilson is a warrior. Not only did he stay all night, he was going strong when I left. Shooooooooo.
That's all folks.

For those of you who don't know. Punkbot is my thesis project. He is currently dancing to "so many ways" by new found glory. Though he is most rememered for his puppet like dancing to "never going back to new jersey" by Less than Jake. He is iconic in a way around the lab. Cause everybody seems to remember him haha. Also this is his first appreance as a 2-D object.
That's it folks. Later.
"I know i want to but it gets harder every time. And if it's easier to give up everything. I'd give it all to you to relieve half this pain. Cause it's been hard. Yeah it's been hard."

The had word bubbles you could write on. Some pretty funny stuff man. I also got an honorable mention for my work. It was nice.
Hopefully render week will be just as much fun, WOOOOOO.

An animator who'll remain Eric came up with this idea. I just don't wish to subject people to seeing us dance haha.
"She said I think I'll go to Boston. I think I'll start a new life. I think I'll start it over. Where no one knows my name. I'll get out of California, I'm tired of the weather. I think I'll get a lover and fly em out to Spain. I think I'll go to Boston. I think that I'm just tired. I think I need a new town, to leave this all behind. I think I need a sunrise. I'm tired of the sunset. I hear it's nice in the summer, some snow would be nice. Boston. Where no one knows my name."

I sat in front of a computer screen most of the day. Only too leave to Sam's club and a diner.

However today I feel pretty good.
I'M BACK BABY, let's ride.
