alex is right we do need to record something or we're gonna implode

but it isn't as big a deal as he makes it out to be

we've been watching lots of obscure animators on youtube lately, really makes me want to try it myself.

i have this cool idea, a scene with me and louis and alex in the bathroom looking at a cockroach in our bathtub

i've been wanting to try animation for a really long time ever since i started getting into jack stauber back in the day, but after finding these new channels it kinda spurred me back into action

i've been particularly obsessed with this channel umami, he makes this series called interface and it's wild, he even composes all the music for it too

i spent three hours just drawing louis's background and his sprite, just need to now figure out all the facial movements and stuff like that, i think i'll make each mouth position and eye position a seperate image file and layer them on in the actual video editing porcess. i woulld have to first record all the audio and sounds first, that should be interesting

i also have a working script in progress, it's just difficult to write for louis and alex if they aren't with me at the moment

i'm also trying to learn how to do text effects like bill

i thinkk i heard him say one time that all of his text are actually image files with transparent backgrounds, that'll probably make things a little easier, if only blender didn't make me want to rip my hair out

i really want to make a music video for the last song i recorded on the seltzer page

i really want to go to a diner

i wish there was a way to thank her i really do

had everything not happened i wouldn't be where i am today

and yeah i'm fucking sad a lot of the time but i'm getting shit done
i'm getting it together for once

i'm not that stressed
i took a break from recording kind of involuntarily but i guess that was healthy in a way

near the end of the summer i went to this beach about thirty minutes away and i had this revelation
i think that was the first time i was actually glad i didn't go through with it

just looking out into that ocean that i looked at for my whole life

this ocean that i grew to just fucking hate with every ounce of my being

but now i was on a different beach, seeing it from a different angle, i'm a different person now
and that's terrifying real and beautiful

there's this girl i like a lot
i got her number yesterday

god louis please don't fuck this up for me

she seems really nice which is so refreshing considering most of the people i know

i'm looking back at all these entries, it makes me happy that i'm writing most of them

9/6/2019 11:37pm

off the schedule for now but that's okay, i've done so much just this past summer i might need a break, even if it is forced

had a really nice time out with my friends tonight

they're new

really uncomplicated
and nice

they don't seem like my other friends

i met a girl this week

8/31/2019 1:05pm

the real reason i even went down there was to see my friend i already talked about and this one other mexican guy who works there, him and i would be on the grill together and stuff and over the years i was working there him and i became really close. he would have birthday parties for his nephews and stuff and would invite us, i love that guy

it's funny, cause when i first started there we hated eachother, which is understandable because i was really shitty at my job

but if you told me when i first started there when i was 14 that i would eventually be really good friends with this guy, i would have thought you were crazy

but anyway, him and my other friend were the reason i went down there, and when i got there i said "hey man, remember that hibachi place we all went to in january? let's all go again before i leave, do you want to go tomorrow or friday?"

and he says tomorrow (thursday) is good for him and his brother and nephew and stuff who also work in the restaurant so it was all set. they were all confirmed and everything

i invited this older lady who i was really close with in the store, she's really cool, and she would share her weed with me and my friend after work sometimes, or even during work sometimes which was dangerous

then i invited this girl that used to work there a while ago, she stopped working there around the time i left too, so the other people hadn't seen her in a while either, she's really cool

then i invited this one other girl who works there now, i had only met her like two or three times before because her first day there was my last day there, she's nice enough though, she's 14. thought it'd be nice to include her since when i started working there i never got invited to shit

we get to the restaurant and everyone except the mexican guys show up. i guess there was some miscommunication or something so they couldn't make it, so that sucked, they were like the whole reason i came down in the first place. it was still nice though, i had a really nice time.
i worked there for so long, i forget that sometimes

most of my relationships with the people i worked with there precede the majority of the relationships i have today, and they're the only people down there that i would actually want to spend time with


it was nice to see them and i'm glad i did

reminds me that people still rememeber me down there, so that's comforting in a weird way

8/31/2019 12:52pm

finally got my own place, i'll be able to record in peace.

i still have roomates but at least i have my own room, that's a lifesaver

having to stop when someone walks in or trying to be quiet is just not a good environment for someone who needs to keep a schedule like this

and the lease is for like ten months so i really have a chance to spread out and be super comfortable
no more packing up after three months or so

ten months is a long time, it hasn't even been ten months since everything happened

that's crazy

it feels like it's been years, but it also feels like it just happened


one of my best friends is living in his car now, i feel really sorry for him, i offered for him to stay at my parents' place for a while but i guess they weren't all about it

that sucks

i'm really in debt to this guy i wish there was some way i could help him out

i mean i'm so far away from there now there's really not much i CAN do, once my parents clean up the mold in their basement hopefully he can store his stuff there
cause right now he's paying like $87 a month for a storage locker

i hope things work out for the best for him, he really deserves to have thinngs go right for him, he's been through a lot, and he came and visited me when i was in the hospital, he didn't have to do that, i didn't ask him to do that, but it made a huge difference for me. being trapped in that tiny room for so long by myself, for him to come in and just hang out was really nice of him, just to sit there and laugh and forget for just a second all the shit that just happened was so relieving, and i'll always be in debt to him for that

8/27/2019 11:05pm

my vcr is broken

i opened it up and noticed that the fuse is blown so i'll stop at a truvalue or something and fix it when i get back because i left my soldering iron there

now i just need to find a real vhs camera, there are plenty of ebay and craigslist but they're either *untested* or $200

with no middle ground

guess i'm just gonna have to save up

after we found that food pantry thing money isn't as tight and i think we'll be able to save up within the next month to get everything we need

i'm so excited for the future

i feel terrible now, but that's okay, that just means i'm human. this is the exact reaction that a human should feel after everything that happened

that's not super comforting though, people like to think that they're, but in the grand scheme of things they're really not. the earth is so monumentally small, and has been around in the universe for such a monumentally short amount of time, and humans have only been on the earth for a tiny fraction of how long the earth has been here.

and what's a life? like 80 years or so? that's literally nothing.

not even able to be calculated compared to the age of the universe

we do not exist

the entire human race will have come and gone in a tiny tiny tiny blip of existence in this infinite void that the earth is hurdling through, making everyone's individual lives undoubtably meaningless

we do not exist and yet

everyone still thinks that they are important
everyone is still trying to carve their name out in this planet's history, in some futile attempt to seek happiness
and for a long time, i resented people for that

why is everyone wasting their time with that when life is so meaningless?

but thinking about it now, that's really beautiful

in the face of such a mind-boggling nothingness of existence, people still do what they can to find happiness
in thus huge, unforgiving, mean, beautiful, unfamiliar world

people put aside these thoughts and focus on what matters to them

and shit, who am i to stop someone from seeking happiness, everyone deserves happiness, including me, and i wouldn't want someone to try and stop me in that pursuit

everyone is on ther own journey, and i think that's really beautiful

and everything is really beautiful

sorry about that

he's right about fl studio though it kinda sucks. money's just tight so we gotta live with it for now

getting an electric guitar tomorrow so i think that will make things a lot easier and pretty cool

he's also right about the craigslist thing i like his idea it has some traction, we just can't get too far ahead of ourselves, he always just wants to speed through it and get to a finished product as fast as possible but we both know that the last that the last three projects ended up being crappy because he pulled us throught them too fast

we did make a craigslist song today and i think it turned out pretty good, vocals aren't great but that's okay

winters are hard

but fair

when we were kids winters were always so wonderful
snow days
hot chocolate

now to me winter has just become synonymous with heartbreak

thinking about how i spent the last new years eve
can't get any lower than that unless i try really hard

this will be my first winter away from that shithole of a town and hopefully it'll do me good

gotta get away from everyone

gotta get away from myself

alex has been trying really hard to get out lately and i have to keep trying to calm him down before he makes a fool of all three of us

7/25/2019 1:10pm

bought a power drill a couple days ago

guess it makes me feel important

7/25/2019 1:05pm

woke me up to fix my door

my door isn't broken

7/8/2019 12:33am

can't fall back, gotta keep going
go on without me

gotta keep going

gotta leave alex behind

saw louis this weekend, it was nice to catch up with him
but i hate him with every ounce of my being

gotta keep caring for alex so that louis doesn't keep knocking on my door

god, if she could see you now.....

7/8/2019 12:27am

think i'll go back to the sculpture place this week

gotta get rid of bad associations somehow

been in a bit of a dip lately.....i don't know if it will help or make things worse

taking the weekends off is hard, not making things is difficult and leaves me to my thoughts which is never a good thing
but i have to keep it that way or it will never stick

definitely gotta go to the sculpture place again, i just hope i won't see who i think i'll see there. but very unlikely...hopefully

it's so peaceful there

it reminds me of a time when i was really happy

7/3/2019 11:57pm

don't need to do much to do anything, really

7/3/2019 6:02pm

maybe i'll move to a city where there are less people trying to do the same thing as me

7/2/2019 6:37pm

the schedule is working, i love the schedule. just need to get it to keep working or else i will implode

6/26/2019 1:38pm

i know that if i was satisfied with something i make i would be doing something wrong, but it's hard putting stuff out that you despise in the hopes that you're wrong

6/26/2019 1:35pm

why be productive when you can be the opposite instead

6/17/2019 4:48pm

does the pope piss in the shower?

6/17/2019 4:40pm

you can find my merch in your drawer

6/15/2019 7:03pm

how much disk space does a lamb gyro take up?

6/14/2019 12:50pm

lizards are like the cacti of pets because they're both from the desert and you barely have to do anything to keep them alive

6/14/2019 11:07am

the more nothing i do the more my hands hurt as if i was doing more something than nothing

6/14/2019 1:32am

sticks and twigs are tree bones

6/14/2019 1:02am

website-making is a little harder than i thought but i also think that the report of the week is comedic genius

go back
