    • Breakfast Roll Pride

      Today I woke up, dying of what is almost unfair to just call a hangover. It was an assault on all the senses I thought I had and more. But even though the walk up to the shops to get my recovery breakfast roll made me feel like that part in lord of the rings where sam and frodo get TO mordor but then you're like 'shit dude they aren't making it back are they' (minus the fire and lava and fate of all mankind), I couldn't help feeling this amazing sense of happiness and comfort the whole way there. Because as of yesterday, I live in the first country in the world to make gay marriage legal at a constitutional level by popular vote. I'm not gay, but just the notion that enough of the people walking past me on the street care that much about equality might mean that my cousin might now feel comfortable enough to hold his boyfriend's hand in public...shit I don't know, I'm getting emotional thinking about it. I'm probably still a little drunk.

      It's just a really sincere example of one of those 'faith in humanity restored' kind of feels.

      This breakfast roll by the way...

      I just got in the door from a day trip to Paris, and here's why:

      Two years ago(ish) when I was at the height of my fandom with the animation department at Rooster Teeth, (Shane Newville's Megaman X short had just come out, RWBY trailers I think were just at the Black trailer and I was watching the White trailer at least 20 times a day, and playing back the music, thinking up my own sequences), when Patrick posted a short film made by a student from a school called Les Gobelins Ecole de l'Image. In the space of the 3 minutes of the short, everything I wanted to achieve with my animation took a serious, if not subtle shift. Although the theme of this short film Myosis has been done to death, the masterful work the went into the technical side of things: the animation, direction, the musical score, everything was all I had wanted to put into my work and more. It didn't matter that the subject matter had been done to death, it was clear that someone had put so much of their soul in to making that film. And thus started what is currently a 2 year-long (and counting) obsession with the animation programme at Gobelins. Since then I've been pushed to draw for hours every day. I now regularly attend life drawing classes and have even taken up a portfolio class so start getting ready to apply in 2016.

      But jump back to today specifically: I'm just in the door, tired and cranky, warn down and honestly really dissuaded from work. Today was one of the school's open days where hopeful prospective students would come from around the world and see the standard of talent it takes to attend a school like Gobelins, and christ on a bike that's a high standard. Some of the entry portfolios actually had fully fleshed out fish-eye perspective drawings and ugh, I can't. But even though I'm crazy down on myself, self-conscious about my own level of talent, I know from personal experience that really I'm in the perfect frame-of-mind. That something really special is about to happen. Because all this is is the next stage. Despite my quick progression over the last few years, my learning rate seems to have found its own comfort zone, and I have a strong feeling that today is going to be exactly the kick in the ass I need to push through this one final year before I apply to attend Gobelins. Its not a pleasant feeling at all; more like that part of the marathon everyone who's ever ran a marathon tell you about called 'The Wall'. It's huge, and it's daunting, and it's in my way, but I figure I want whats on the other side bad enough to try climb it. Did that metaphor make any sense? I don't even words any more I'm so sleepy. But I wanted to at least write this as a little place holder for what today is to me: the turning point for my final year's stretch of the marathon that ends on Boulevard Saint-Marcel.

      ...that's where-that's the address of the school in case nobody got okay I need to sleep now bye night

        I was all over the SnK anime when it was running, soooo good. Yeah tho, nge is one of those anime I know is going to be good from reputation so I just save it for a rainy day :) it took me years to get around to Cowboy Bebop like. and I still have Trigun, Code Geass and a few others to get to! so far so good with Eva tho! on episode 2 and super impressed :)

      • Kaoru27Umi Princess of Mars

        4 years ago

        Yes! It's great, I definitely recommend it! (the anime too was fantastic!)
        You've never seen NGE?!?!?! Stop what you're doing and go watch that. All of it. It's crazy, but it's crazy brilliant!!

        oh is that really that good? I've a few friends who're craaazy into the SnK manga but I've never tried it myself. not reading any manga atm, but I'm about to start watching neon genesis evangelion for the first time. I've seen and heard so much about it but never actually tried watch it. that and I'mn a few episodes into HunterxHunter. and I never finished Gurren Lagann. I need to watch all the things O_O

      • Kaoru27Umi Princess of Mars

        I'm reading shingeki no kyojin monthly, and some other girly silly ones for the hell of it. Other than that I haven't kept up with any others. I'm moreso watching anime weekly instead. How about you?

      • Lukey

        4 years ago

        yeah, its tough man. I used to meet up with the chap who got me into naruto and we'd read the newest chapter together after lectures every wednesday. now I haven't seen the guy in months lol. are you into any other manga atm?

      • Kaoru27Umi Princess of Mars

      Hey common musical interests buddy! smiley0.gif . How's it going? and what's your favorite Eyedea song? lol

      • Dice wOrk

        4 years ago

        I've been into a lot of pop punk, like FoB, panic, cartel, that kind of stuff (marias trench). I'm mostly just trying to listen to a wider variety of rap.

        First born works best if you can listen to the album all the way through.

        What you studying? smiley0.gif

        Awesome! Oh my god, I used to be obsessed with Burn Fetish, it was the only E&A song I listened to for ages, dat wordplay. By The Throat was just a great album. The same friend who introduced me to eyedea has been trying to get me to listen to First Born ever since but I never gave it a shot. Bored out of my tree lately studying tho, I might give it a listen tonight. Would you be mainly into anything else that isn't rap?

      • Dice wOrk

        4 years ago

        Omg I love Even Shadows Have Shadows. I think my fav is Smile, but I love Burn Fetish a lot too. smiley0.gif . Have you listened to his First Born album? It's weird but interesting.

      • Lukey

        haha, hey dude. not bad, how're you? faaaavourite eyedea song is probably Here For You, but Even Shadows Have Shadows is a close second. what about yourself?
