So, The Grades Are In...

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
The "P" stands for pass. Nothin' too stellar, but nothin' bad either. Anyone that's been reading this weblog for the past little bit knows how much pain I went through in Typography class, and I know I'm not the only one. The last assignment we had to hand in* was a total abortion on my part, and I knew it. None of it's going in my portfolio, so I don't really give a fuck.
I can truly rest easy now.

*An ad re-design, which had to be done five ways: New Wave, "New" Typography, Vernacular, Memphis, and Retro. I suggest consulting Phillip B. Meggs A History of Graphic Design if you're confused at all.)

An Article Definitely Worth Reading

Illustration: Graphic Design’s Poor Relation by Laurie Rosenwald

A great for both graphic design and (especially) illustration heads. I happened upon this while checking out the blog of Steve Mack's Illustration Farm (which is pretty dope, by the way).
Well, back to work for me!

Rant / Something I've Learned

I fuckin' hate cell phones!
You already knew that, I'm sure, but they're the reason why I'm still stuck at school.
Some Sean Paul-lookin' motherfucker was on the school's free phone trying to get his stupid-ass cell working. For 20 fuckin' minutes. There's a 3 minute limit, fucko!
I had no change, for the record.

Something I've Learned
If switch the "safesearch" off on Google®, chances are you'll find nude photos of your favorite female stars when you do an image search. It's fun...try it!!

See, this is why I have this weblog: to share.

I'm In A Contemplative Mood...

- Just returned from the doctor. Got me some more Celexa®. Yum.
- It seems that I enjoy Christmas less and less as the years go on. Maybe because I've been broke for the last four of 'em. Don't get me wrong, I dig celebrating my saviour's birth and all that. I guess I'm just jaded. Boxing Day is Christmas to me now. Y'all know how much I dig Boxing Day.
- I'm really, really tired.
- An addendum to my second thought: I actually look forward to the turning of the year. New possibilities. Renewal.
- I got some Flash stuff to mess with. I'll drop that new site on y'all soon.

I got me some Fleshbot props/Wakka Chikka Wakka Chikka

Got 'em hip to the remastered Deep Throat Soundtrack on Light In The Attic. In turn, this morning they let me know about the free porn-influenced compilation available at Comfort Stand Recordings. I'm listening to it right now, and it pretty good! Color me impressed n' shit.

The Best Places To Sleep At RRC's Princess Campus

You've been up all night cramming/finishing an assignment/doin' nothin'. You are very, very tired. But where do you sleep? I'll tell ya:
  1. The Fifth Floor Futon: Provided there are no laptop-havin' motherfuckers in that room, you've got a one way ticket to Dreamland/IShouldBeWorkingOnSomethingAtThe Momentville.
  2. The Photo Studio: Also on the fifth floor. There's a pretty sturdy table in there, and it's super dark. Word.
  3. The Sixth Floor Futon: As comfy as the fifth floor one, but surrounded by first and second year Graphic Design students. They might look at you funny and/or make a lot of noise.
  4. The Sofas by Tim Horton's: Super comfy, but be forewarned that total strangers will spark up conversation around you, totally oblivious to your existance. I know this for sure. Trust me.
  5. The Sofas Across From The Library: The prime sleepspot. Akin to what the old Tower Lounge was to Notre Dame campus students, but without the large-ass TV. Bring a pillow to protect your head from the possibility of lice jumping aboard.

A Slight Cosmetic Change

Thanks to Ronnie Del Carmen (and no thanks to Blogger's tech support), I was blessed with the knowledge of how to change up my weblog header. Peep Sir Ronnie's steez here: http://www.ronniedelcarmen.com/

R.I.P Pierre Berton

I don't think anybody loved this country more than he did. Of course the folks at Canada's National History Society are taking it hard.
The National Post had a really nice photo of him on their cover.
