Still plugging away with 3d modelling. [Dec. 1st, 2012|01:14 am]
I made a Wil Wheaton facial texture map today.

Haven't posted on LiveJournal in quite some time. Tumblr stole my soul.

Daz 3D [Sep. 15th, 2012|12:07 am]
Been learning to work with Daz 3D, which is a free 3D rendering package (Daz Studio, Bryce, and Hexagon). It's very flexible and very easy to use even if you don't have any previous 3D experience.

The Daz Studio works great. I haven't played with Bryce yet (landscape software), and Hexagon is very nice but buggy as hell (if it would work like it's supposed to it would be an amazing modelling program). Much easier all in all than working with Maya which some of you may remember I worked with briefly when I had a job as an art monkey making 3D props.

Much more fun working with figures than props I can tell you.

I created a couple of my own body morph models. An Ogre set and a Gnome set.

Which as you know means the next logical step is.

Hot Ogre on Gnome porn.

Or if you prefer Gnome on Ogre.

Still a better movie than Total Recall [Aug. 7th, 2012|11:12 am]
I had the weirdest dream last night. In my dream SCTV was a real TV station here in Hamilton. The staff, like Edith Prickly and Guy Cabolaro were real people but the actors in the skits were the actual actors. So there was an Andrea Martin and an Edith Prickly both.

I was supposed to be in this sci-fi skit with John Candy and the skit was supposed to end with him pressing a button on a prop and the prop wou
ld do something that ended the skit. Unfortunately the prop fell apart and John Candy struggled to put it together but it wouldn't work so he switched gears and decided to be his William B. Williams character and started interviewing me as if he was guest hosting the Sammy Maudlin show because Sammy was on vacation.

He asked me to talk about the new movie I was in. I suddenly felt this panic as John Candy went off script and desperately tried to come up with a movie idea while we were live on-air. So I told him I was in an animated movie playing a Merman who was a flamboyant Elton John like character who wanted to be a human being so he could have a penis so he convinces his friend who is an eel, played by Rodney Dangerfield, to be grafted to his body as his penis. The Rodney Dangerfield eel-penis is eager to do this thinking he'll get to have sex with all these women but the Elton John like Merman is gay.

By the time I get finished describing the movie John Candy fixes the prop, presses the button and the skit ended. I walked off stage and Edith Prickly was there and I apologised for the skit going off the rails like that and she told me not to worry about it because that wasn't the worst thing to ever happen at that station.

Spider-Man and Total Recall [Aug. 7th, 2012|03:14 am]
Saw Spider-Man and Total Recall tonight at the drive-in.

Spider-Man was overall very entertaining and a very good comicbook movie that only had a few parts that made me go "oh come on".

Total Recall. Not so much so. While the special effects were amazing (and really in this day and age there's no reason why the special effects shouldn't be amazing) the cinematography was way too dark at times making it very difficult to see what was going on. Lots of action and excitement but sadly there was just way too much stupid shit that made absolutely no sense what-so-ever. This wasn't helped by the fact that the opening text which was supposed to introduce you to the plot was twirling and flashing distractingly and on screen far too briefly to be useful. This movie is nowhere near as good as the original.

If gays have a "gay agenda" does that mean trannies have a "trapper keeper"?

Schrodinger's Lottery Ticket. [Jul. 17th, 2012|05:31 pm]
I rarely ever buy lottery tickets. When I do it's usually because I'm very depressed and need an "imagination aid" to help me fantasize about what it would be like to be rich enough to just spend my problems away. It's easier to imagine a life of wealth and leisure with a lottery ticket in your wallet than it is without.

The fact that I rarely buy a lottery ticket has nothing to do with the fact that I am rarely depressed. Of any given day about 75% of my waking time is consumed with feelings of overwhelming anxiety and when the adrenaline of my anxiety wanes then I feel a deep crushing depression until my mood swings back into anxiety again. The fact that I rarely buy a lottery ticket is because I've discovered a lottery ticket is only effective until you collapse it's quantum state.

Until I check my lottery ticket then it exists relative to my perspective as both a winning and a losing ticket at the same time. I am both a multi millionaire and a pauper. Once I check that ticket it's quantum state collapses and I am either/or with the odds being overwhelmingly stacked in favour of the pauper at which point the ticket merely becomes a useless slip of paper.

Because of my OCD I suffer from a slew of bizarre and puzzling phobias, many of them don't even make sense to me much less to others. Of these phobias one of the most strange and crippling is my chrometophobia, the fear of money. It is a very humiliating phobia because unless you suffer from it, it can't possibly seem like it is real. Of all my phobias it is the one that is the biggest obstacle in my path to happiness, success, and recovery. It is frustrating and frightening. I live in a world where I am afraid of one of the most important necessities of life in our modern society. My phobia embarrasses me in so many ways that I wasn't even able to admit to this phobia to the people around me until just a few years ago. Even in my own ears it sounds incredibly stupid to say "I have a morbid and paralysing fear of money".

This is another reason why I don't like to collapse the quantum state of a lottery ticket. While it is a bit of a bummer to discover your lottery ticket wasn't a winning ticket to me it would be a terrifying ordeal to suddenly discover I'm a multi-millionaire. My chrometophobia is a suffocating, dizzying, out of control fear like being dropped into a tank of sharks with bears riding on their backs. It's a fear that's hard to put into words. If pressed I could create a list of thousands of "reasons" why I am afraid of money, but the truth of chrometophobia is it is a fear completely beyond reason.

This is why fantasy money is so appealing. Without the cold hard realities of wealth I'm able to indulge in all the good stuff one imagines would come from it without being crushed under the negativities money brings. This is why I like to maintain the quantum state of a lottery ticket until some sort of deep personal emergency comes up where it seems money would be the only thing capable of getting me out of it.

Damn you Checkers! Damn you to HELL!!! [Jul. 15th, 2012|11:38 pm]
Once again I have been mistaken for CHECKERS THE NARCOLEPTIC CLOWN!

Crackers appears during the fake telethon episode, during which the clown plays a song on his accordion and also plays back-up music for other performers to dance to.

I guess it's because our nicknames are so similar and we both live in Hamilton.
