Jan. 20th, 2003

Well, I’m finally starting to update this website a bit. The links have been changed a bit. There’s a lot of new ones, too. I included a link to my new webpage, which is for my band, Trees Eat People. Check it out. It’s all being hand coded, unlike this page. 🙂 I think I’m getting the hang of HTML, although Dreamweaver does things a bit differently.

I finally exchanged my camera for a new and cooler one. I got the HP812 for Christmas, but I decided I wanted something a bit smaller, so I upgraded to the Canon s230 digital elph. It’s a pimp camera, man. It’s got all the features I wanted, including long exposures (up to 15 seconds!). Needless to say, I’ve already been taking advantage of that feature; it resulted in one of the best pictures I’ve ever taken. I’ll put it, and some others up eventually, but don’t hold your breath. I’d have to completely redo the menu bars above in order to fit in an “Art” tab. I’m thinking about whether I should add anything else before I commit. For now, I have a shitload of homework, including making some animated GIFs and some crazy buttons in Director. This is gonna be a busy quarter…

What’s up, y’all. I’m back at it after a nice long winter break. Of course, my work is never done; I’m in school right now working on improving my mad HTML coding skillz. Since I have none, this shouldn’t be too tricky. Yeah, the web looks different when viewed in raw code, but it’s somewhat like the Matrix, I guess.

Anyway, X-mas break was rather exciting, but nothing too amazing. I got too drunk on New Years Eve and I spent all of New Years Day in bed or puking. That sucked. I think I might’ve had a stomach flu because it was like no hangover I’ve ever experienced.

In other news, it was great that Matt and Niki came back for a brief spat of Christmas-time fun. We got some partying and some jamming in. I can’t wait to mix it, but I’m waiting for ProTools 6 for OS X. I can’t stand to boot into OS 9 anymore. I’m still working on the cover for our older jam sessions, too. I’m getting some good Photoshop practice, I think. I need more images, tho. I’ve got much of the interior done. Now, all that remains is the front cover. I’ve been waiting for inspiration to strike. I know it will have something to do with the Fibonacci series…
