      And it's name is WoW.

      orgzuh.jpg

      Well seeing as this is one of the exceedingly rare Zimmy journals, that for some reason people keep telling me to write, I should probably go into depth.

      I avoided WoW for the longest time, none of my friends played it and I doubted my PC could run it. It was a simpler time, a time that actually had time....

      Then FreeFall stuff kept getting more and more complicated and I was getting sick of sneaking into the Architecture computer labs to try and do editing, so after clearing out my bank and getting a few more personal loans I bought this:

      indextop20060516.png

      a 17" MacBook Pro, I'm typing from it now. Massive video editing power at the tips of my fingertips and what does my friend suggest?

      "We should start playing that World of Warcraft."

      So after seeing it from afar with Sev and now experiencing it first hand I can honestly say WoW is detrimental to film making smiley6.gif

      I suppose that's all for now, though if any of you want to look me up I'm Horde on the Aman'Thul realm. The names Zuhimmi, sound familiar to anyone?

    • A Black Friday for Freefall

      Zimmy

      Despite the rather grim title today was a very good day.

      Firstly it was the start of a 3 day weekend, a break from the complete and utter hell that comprises my job at the moment.

      Secondly, I went shopping smiley0.gif

      A friend and I have been planning to start on the film making scene and today was the most expensive day of either of our short lives in which we purchased:

      rode_ntg1.jpg
      A Rode NTG-1 Condenser Microphone

      MIDS10C.jpg
      A Miller DS-10 Tripod.

      And of course, the crux of any hopeful director, a camera.

      xl2%20angle.jpg
      A Canon XL2.

      Hopefull over the next few weeks we'll be able to start producing some shorts as we learn the ins and outs of all the equipment, with any luck even you Americans may get to go into a cinema and watch a movie from Freefall Films smiley0.gif

      In other news, a massive thankyou to Solid Syam for finding that GTA song for me. And Bessie (I know you watch me smiley6.gif ) he wanted me to tell you that "he's the man."

    • 3CCD or HD?

      Zimmy

      A friend and I are looking at video camera's to start doing some film making and have come across this descision, whether to use the slightly more reliable and cheaper 3CCD camera or to try and scrape up enough to buy the newer untested HD camera.

      So I was wondering if anyone here had any experience using either type of camera and whether you had any advice.

    • G Grand Theft Auto

      I own a car, it's a Hyundai Excel. 1998 model, I got it last year rather cheap and it has run amazingly up until now.

      It has spent the last few weeks in the garage, in the end I needed to replace the gearbox and the clutch. Now that hit my pocket really hard, nearly two grand down. Plus another grand from a while back that went to the insurance company, for an accident that wasn't my fault.

      Surely that must be the end of it? Nope, back into the garage the next day because something is wrong with the alternator apparently. Alternator was fine, but power seemed to becoming lost somewhere in the engine, mechanic told me to take it out and see if the battery would manage to right itself after a bit of driving.

      Doesn't seem to be improving, so I plan to take it in right after a night I'd been planning with my friends. Manage to make it there, but the next day the battery had completely drained overnight from whatever the problem was. An hour and a half and one tow truck later I made it to the garage.

      It's still there, waiting to see if they can find the problem so I can get my car back and go back to work. I'm a pizza boy, so I'm losing money each day I can't work in addition to that.

      In other news semi-car related, I purchased San Andreas and am obsessed. I have always hated that whole gangster talk, but it seems to be permeating my entire life. I used the word nigga, to a white person. She did find it quite amusing, and she tends to call me asian so it's all good. But still, talking like that can't be healthy nigga.

      I also notice that the number of users watching me is slowly increasing, why I have no idea since it seems I rarely do anything. But still a shout out to those, and appreciation for the thought. Maybe you lot (Or others who happen to come across this) could help me, in the original GTA there was a song that started "G Grand Theft Auto" and I would like to get a hold of it. But I don't know the title, the artist, nothing.

      There goes my nice long, content filled journal. For all those who wait for my quality filled rants, peace out homies!

      Ok, this girl has never seen RvB but I was talking to her about some of my new shirts and so she made her own spur of the moment fan art...

      Ironic that she didn't know it meant Cockbite when she drew it... Especially with that head :-P

    • Need Sleep....

      14 years ago

      Zimmy

      It is now Monday 4:12am Australian Western Standard time.

      Since Thursday 9:30am I have had a grand total of 11 hours sleep. Almost none of which was in the last 48 hours.

      And during that period, I was constantly at uni except for one two hour block.

      Now I need to drive my dad to the airport, then I'll probably be heading back to uni.

      More details to follow, soonish.

      Promised Edit {4:55pm}: I am helping out for an event run by the University of Western Australia known as Prosh. Basically we make a newspaper which parodies the less than amazing state newspaper and then a couple of hundred uni students dress up and go sell them for charity.

      The entire 24 page paper was written over that weekend, and was sent off to the publisher a couple of hours after this original post and a couple of hours before the deadline.

      Any costume suggestions?

      There was a request for a new journal entry so here you go.

      I turned 18 today, someone bought me beer. It was good :-P

      Does anyone else notice a downward trend in the quality of my journals?

      I don't know if milestones are a sponsor-only feature or not. I'd guess they aren't sponsor-only because some of the 107 I mentioned aren't sponsors and their profiles show the milestones. I know they aren't showing up for a lot of users, sponsors and non-sponsors alike.
