Writer's Block: Desert Island Time

You're packing your bag for that magical desert island that happens to have electricity, a TV, and a DVD player—what five DVDs do you take with you?
1. Band of Brothers (this better count as it's the only dvd I am absolutely sure I would bring. :|)
2. Shaun of the Dead
3. The Fall
4. Slumdog Millionaire 
5. Ghostbusters 2 (so controversial!)

I need a new game to play. I just completed Mass Effect and I'm itchin' for another game EXACTLY like it. (truthfully, I just want Mass Effect 2, but Bioware aren't give that up any time soon...) I can't stop watching Enchanted, either. It's on ALL THE TIME on Sky Movies and it's just so glee-filled, I can't help but watch it! D: 



college talk

College is fun! I uh, haven't really done anything yet except tour the college, see where I'd be working and meet my class and my lecturers, but still! It's a really nice place and the people seem cool. There aren't many girls in my class (I guess Graphic Design is more manly than Fine Art? Who knows!) but I always get along better with guys so it isn't all bad. There's one guy who reminds me terribly of Scott Pilgrim and a few who understand and share my exitement for the Watchmen film! Not gonna lie, I was sitting with a group of four guys at lunch and we spent a good 20 minutes talking solely about how awesome Watchmen is going to be. So, yeah, I think I'll fit in nicely, haha.

My lecturers seem nice, too. I'm studying typography, screen printing, e-graphics, photography, drawing and probably tons more-- I can't even remember haha. I got to meet the animation lecturers too, and they're so cool I can't even handle it oh my god. Man, I wish I was good at drawing things out of my head, because SERIOUSLY, when a lecturer's first words to you are "Welcome to Fairyland!" you know your course is going to be amazing.

Oh, and we have to bring our portfolios in on Thursday and explain how our thought process worked while doing it. It's gonna be so awkward, haha. And because I'm really aware of the fact that I made this LJ for posting art and haven't actually posted any yet, here's some of my portfolio.


lots of imagesCollapse )


movies movies i love movies

I still have no real clue what to do with this Livejournal, so I guess I'll just stick images and artwork in it?

These are just some of my favourite stills from some of my favourite films. I'll probably end up adding about a million more I forgot about so I'll probably consider this as one of those indefinite ongoing posts. :D

First post and introductions

This is my first post on livejournal ever! I better make it worthwhile!

Hmm. Uhm.
