JOURNAL: SailorDeath (Sailor Death)

  • THings are getting worse and better. 2002-12-04 18:24:13 Well bills are piling up, but on the good side I just had a job interview in chicago, so I hope it works out., 
  • Joy! Things are already getting better! 2002-11-06 10:42:01 Well, I have work now. I'm not getting as many hours I'd like, but it's a new start, something I've been waiting for. If things get better, I may even be in line for getting my site started back up. But we'll take one thing at a time. Right now I have to dig myself out of this pit of debt that I have gotten myself into. I may even need to sell my car just so I can pay my bills. Hopefully it won't come to that. 
  • My ass, My ass My ass is on fire. 2002-07-05 01:01:57 It's not the 4th till someone is rushed to the emergency room. such as what almost happened to me today.

  • Gray skies are gonna clear up. 2002-04-28 02:22:15 No work yet on a hosting solution, but the first good bit of news is that I bought a new dvd player, and I was able to hack it using just the remote it came with. Now I have a region free player and can watch all of my dvd's an no longer have to use my computer. It's nice to finally be able to watch my dvd's in full dobly digital surround and on a nice 35" tv screen. Many thanks goes to vcdhelp.com for thier database of dvd hacks. 
  • Tough times ahead. 2002-01-21 06:41:30 A few things to squawk about.

    1. Still looking for work. I've been killing myself to find something, anything that will pay me enough so I can deal with my bills at the same time in a field that I'm well suited for. I really don't want to have to pay for my anime central trip with unemployment checks, or worse yet, borrowing money from my friends. Acen is the one thing I look forward to every year. what was worse is that I complained about how the dealers room was lacking in the "Import DVD's" department. In fact I was quite surprised to get an email from a con chair saying that "They'll Be sure to let them know" It would really suck if they brought imported anime this year and I couldn't buy any. Man that would really suck.

    2. I've already completed my primary entry for the Anime Central 2002 AMV Contest. I don't know if I'm going to send it to any of the other cons. I've always been one of those guy's who believe that 1 con is good enough for a video and it shouldn't be trolled to every one. (especially if it won at another con) But with everyone else doing it, I'm starting to think that maybe it's not so bad to do that. (though if by some miracle it does win something at acen I probably won't send it anywhere else) also on the hosting front, some people may have noticed that I have a single video up. I currently have it in a spot where I can pretty much host that file and not have to worry about fees or anything. But I can only host 1 at a time (which bites the big one) I may think about alternating them untill I can find a place willing to host them for free. I'm still upset over not having a site. It took me 5 years to build it into what it was. and to lose all that in an instant is very heart breaking. I'm still hopeful, if I ever get a job that pays me enough to have simple luxuries like paying for hosting fees then I'll probably be back up. Right now though that doesn't look like it's going to happen. At least I was smart and bought the name for 10 years, so I don't have to worry about someone stealing it from me.

    3. I'm trying to get started on my second entry for acen's AMV contest. I'm looking to try and enter a video into thier theme category. Movie Trailer or Commerical sounds like something really fun. I've experimented with one video idea, and I have a rough draft finish. After viewing it however I get the urge to destroy it. It feels too much like an abomination to mankind (much like my anime central 99 entry which has been destroyed, minus the few screener tapes that exist) Somehow Catholic High School Girls in Trouble seemed like a good idea at the time, but after a finished product has been pounded out it leave a really bad aftertaste in my mouth. I've showed it to a few friend, they told me it was hilarious, but the problem is that it's so raunchy that I don't even know if they'd allow it. I can censor the one nude shot, that's no problem, it's more like what's being implied on the screen. I also had a few cringes followed by a "Dear god that was disgusting" remark. So I don't really know if it'd be a wise decision to send it in. I'm currently working on another idea, I have 2 more to try out, I'll see which is better. What it comes down to though is what would the crowd enjoy more. I don't want to make a badly edited video that used a funny idea to win. I want to make something that's going to look nice and make people laugh so hard they either can't see straight or pee themselves. I have yet to create a video like that. I guess I'm not that funny. Oh well. When I get something I'll post the info.
