Sigh

So I have been ditched by Rachael, Tasha & the others after I was apparently “not pulling my weight” in the group, even though I had already fulfilled the first part of my position within a week which was to build a website…. 15,000 lines of code for nothing, well not entirely.

Rather than bitch about it anymore I came up with my own idea from scratch already, and I’ll use everything I made for their group in my project which includes two brand new jQuery scripts I designed and wrote just for the project. Anyways my idea is to do a sort of “what would EVE look in real-life” movie but I also want to create a community around the project, and a project website. The project will be targeting players of EVE Online.

It’s weird, I have had this idea in my head for quite a while and now I’m actually going to be able to do it, better than I had hoped and get credit for it as well, awesome! There is one problem with the whole project and that is that I’ll need to buy a GoPro camera to be able to do the project. They are really small, high-quality HD camcorders designed for extreme sports such as Snowboard, Rollerblading, Skateboarding and stuff like that. But you can also get bicycle handle-bar attachments for it and that’s how I plan to film the biggest part of the project. The other parts of the project I’ll just hire out university camera equipment and shoot it with *sigh* DV Tape, which is always a pain in the ass to work with. SD is the future!

Where was I? Websites. This week I delivered by keynote presentation to the rest of my media class about my ideas for my project, naturally taking a couple of screen captures of the work that I did for *their* group and using it in my own work, why not? I did the work that they said I haven’t done so why should they be able to use it? A large chunk of the codebase in the website is proprietary to Project: Hazel and Squidwolf Syndicate anyways so even if it was ok in the university’s eyes to use it then they’d have to licence it from me and Project: Hazel anyway. Not that I’m bitter I just don’t like people saying I am not doing work or pulling my weight when clearly I am, the evidence is in front of you.

And here is the pretty camera, I also want to buy a chest harness for it to film FINALLY some of the Parkour that I do in Manchester and with Lexi, Adara, Kendrix & Kendra in Conwy when I am over there…speaking of which I haven’t actually done any Parkour at all this year and it’s almost April, sheet!!!! Anyways, plans for today? Lazy day, I am actually ahead for once with Uni work since most of it is done so just gonna chill out & watch True Blood with Bryony.

ok I don’t care who knows, I have fallen in love with Gilmore Girls. I have made it my challenge to watch every episode from start to finish before I leave uni. So how did I get acquainted with such an episode, well it was through my ex that I really started watching the show; but I did occasionally watch them on E4 while I was feeding my One Tree Hill addiction…I see a pattern emerging here!

Anyways! Relating to the video I just posted … niiiiice!!! These Traceurs from Latvia are amazing, WATCH THE VIDEO!!! As for my own Parkour YouTubeness, I will eventually get around to buying a GoPro camera so I can fulfil my dream of shooting a Mirror’s Edge-style series.

If you ever watched Dark Angel, it will be that sort of ‘ambient’ open world feel to it crossed with the futuristic rigidness that DICE brought us with Mirror’s Edge that I will be going for.

(for the record, I don’t do Parkour in the winter.)
