My Unitarian Jihad Name is: Sister Katana of Patience.


Get yours.





I like it. Considering I do Aikido, this names fits me well.
You think they'll be willing to call me this in the dojo? XD

This is an official casting call for:

MALE VOICE ACTOR

Needed for a 15 second spot
Must be able to mimic a telecaster's/Infomercial narrator voice

This is for my final film project for my Flash course... while I understand that working for free isn't an acceptable option, I am willing to trade or be commissioned for a piece in return.

PLEASE CONTACT IF INTERESTED!

You would be helping out a LOT and get the pride of voice acting for a Werewolf Commercial!

Just dropping a line to everyone with some new updates!
Specifically, some WIP of the Totem Pole Stage prop I made for the production of "Rose Marie" last month.

Enjoy folks!

When life gives you lemons, you take those lemons, make lemonade and THROW IT BACK INTO LIFE’S EYES.

Recently I was in a discussion with a “friend” [now, demoted to “associate”] who couldn’t find a better time to kick me while I was down.
I have been freelancing for a while now, trying to make a small move into Studio job as opposed to self employment. Sadly, it has not been easy as a composition of problems arose:

1) I really don’t know how to socialize well in the industry. I don’t drink alcohol for medical reasons, and that puts a BIG damper on getting the next gig.

2) Clearly, my content and style isn’t big on demand… going on 500+ outright rejections and no bites. Freelancing is the kindest to me, yet planting myself in a studio isn’t. Something about my work that isn’t “studio quality” but “freelance” quality I suppose.

3) I have a hard time learning the new computer software’s, as they are ever changing and usually non traditional mediums.

While dealing with these, this so called “friend” decided to really have a go at me; passively aggressively teasing me about the fact that she “beat me” and “won” because she has a studio job and I didn’t.
Well, sad people are sad, and this obsessive competitive feud she has had since the days of Sheridan have been very one sided… I’m not into competing for a number of reasons that include very different styles [comparing apples to oranges], straining and stress in the workplace [honestly, hard enough to get the job done, why add another layer?], and lastly, I just don’t care. I want to focus on being productive- on bettering myself... so how does hating everyone else help this?

Even a broken clock is right twice a day, and she did ultimately have a point. So I figured… what am I going to do about it? Well, no sooner then looking for a solutions then I stumbled upon something that will help me with at least one of my problems; I’m starting an intensive 6 week course to learn Flash, and it does give me the option to continue to an advance course for action scripting.
During this time, I’ll also be finishing up stock for AC… I’m bringing awesome Deer skin medicine Bags, mini-drums, a full sized drum, Shields, my NorDesign pendants, T-shirts and more!

I admit, I’m looking forward to the course- first lesson is tonight. I have planned a small little animation with one character that I’ll be doing in Flash in order to test my knowledge that I am acquiring.

Exciting! XD

Dudes, DUDES.
I had the BEST weekend EVAR.

[Error: Irreparable invalid markup ('<lj-user=foxfeather>') in entry. Owner must fix manually. Raw contents below.]

Dudes, DUDES.
I had the BEST weekend EVAR.

<lj-user=foxfeather> and <lj-user=mbala> came up to my place for the weekend. If anything I have ALWAYS felt so in tune and aligned with the both of them, and it’s fantastic to be able to hang with people you consider family.
<lj-user=hewhowalkswithtigers> also joined the fun, and we all spent one excellent weekend in each other’s company- biggest highlight was going to the zoo together!
I can honestly say I haven’t had so much fun in a LONG time, and I am seriously looking forward to coming down and spending time over at Fox’s place.

That being said, Fox was great and advising me in promoting a graphic novel I have had in the works… and really suggested I start posting my concepts and other promotional stuff to gain some interest. So no doubt, That will be coming soon too.

I’m also considering doing a little “slave artist” thing for a couple of weeks in the summer. For $100, I draw your character every day in a new style/pose, fully colored and finished… if you want to substitute more sketches instead of color, also doable.

I'm working on designing some nifty little products for AC and my website... good thing too, 'cause today my CS5 Dreameaver came in the mail! It's about TIME. I have a little over a month worth of updats to my site, and I want to get all caught up.

Well, bakc to work for me. I am designing and it's fun and turning out surprisingly well!

For the life of me, I cannot update my DA journal and it BITES.

And you now what else bites? I'm going to have to miss the Rammstien concert. My flu became Viral Infection and I am;
1) Contagious
2) Infection and blood are leaking from my ear
3) My right eardrum is swelled to twice the size.

And while I would probably still fit in well at the concert, my newly prescribed anti-biotics and weak disposition say otherwise.

Dammit.

This morning I wake up painfully ill with the flu.
I woke up at 4:30 am to be exact.
And I had experienced some of the most agonizing- yet unique- muscle spasms, vertigo, feeling of weightlessness and over-wieghtfullness... it's extraordinary actually.

ANYWAYS... I made it a point that I'll spend the day in bed. But you know what? It's driving me crazy. When I get a little bit of energy, I'm thinking to myself- why are you not doing something productive?

So I am in a conflict with myself. I've been in bed all day- and only got out to make the bed, air out the room, take a shower, and make teas/food for myself. I want to get onto more productive things... but I know logically, the day of sleeping and doing nothing will help cure my ailments faster.

Why does being sick have to be so complicated?

So I woke up this morning a little feverish and a slight soar throat.
I’m gonna have to nip this in the BUD. I cannot get sick now… I’m worried about giving it to my mom before she goes on her trip this weekend.

On the bright side, I got me some NICE hide. Gonna be making lots of Medicine bags! Huzzah!

Pointless entry is pointless. XD

The last couple of weeks were pure mayhem- but I survived.

After FE I had to dedicate 100% of my time to getting the Totem Pole done for the Opera- which was a huge success. Both Outfit and Stage prop were delivered on time and satisfactory, and were returned to myself after the performance.

The OperaCollapse )
Part time and a PitchCollapse )

For the weekend, however, I’ll be working 12 hours days for double pay... Advance polls are all through the weekend, and that scores me a lot of finances over a small period of time. Good thing is, I can easily stay at the desk and work on my other projects while I instruct people where to go to Vote.

Aside from that, I’m still dealing with bad-sleep issues due to having my Irrational Fear Anxiety wake up. Looks as if a few people are trying to get me into a Waying [sp?] Ceremony to solve this little issue- however there are no Navajo ceremonies being conducted here, due to the lack of the Navajo facilitators. So I’m stuck with my Irrational Fear, and only words of guidance and wisdom from peers.
It’s amazing at the lack of productivity this creates, as most dead ends to this type of anxiety leads to “there is no point doing anything”... and it’s only magnified by certain female cycles that lead you to become very emotionally fluctuating. I’m hoping it’ll pass within a few days.
I seriously need sleep. XD
