OMG I had such a hard time, its been so difficult etc, etc, blah, blah, blah,
Well I have something to celebrate, so I thought I’d just pop a bit of a blog up here, for your delectation and enjoyment.
I was doing that 3D thing, its so easy to do the 2D stuff, but the 3D, blimey! I’d got this character right, but then I found she couldn’t twist without coming apart, that was last week, then I solved that, pretty easy really, but it took days to find out the 10min solution! Then yesterday, I was ready to animate this other character, and it was worse than ever! Anyhow, today I found a solution – every time you find a solution, another unexpected thing happens!
I was a Teenage Smoker!
So anyhow, here’s my idea for todays blog, I was a teenage smoker! Yeah, I started smoking at 14, weird really, cos there was a guy at school smoking at 12, and I though it was so disgusting! And yet, I ended up hooked too, so smoking – why do we do it eh? Well, its perhaps a nipple thing? You know the suction? I don’t know what babies think about when suckling, presumably, life the universe and everything – well thats what we smokers do, we look real cool, we don’t give a fig that we’re all gona die horribly – way too cool for all that, when the time comes, we’ll just go “Fuckit” and blow our brains out! 🙂
No seriously, I gave up smoking when I found out about vaping, I had one foot in the grave, my chest was hurting, I couldn’t figure out what to do about it for the life of me, but then I found out about vaping, it was fine! Ok, I don’t look so cool as I used to, but at least I smell better!
So anyhow, why all this reactive addictive behaviour? Well I do still find that as soon as I have a vape, my mind drifts off into a bit of a dream, (its part of the addiction of course) But how deep does it go? Very deep I’m afraid, I mean, if I was ready to do myself in over smoking, obviously vaping is pretty much the same thing, but without the tar. So anyway – it was tea break, so I got out my phone, and was looking at some pictures of this guys wedding, I don’t know who he is!! OMG< what the heck? I’m having my tea break, and eating my sarnies, looking at some random guys wedding photos on flickr, and I’m thinking why am I unmarried? Why is everyone so happy to get married in the first place? WTF?
So I’m looking at thing guys photos, and everyone looks so happy, and I’m thinking if I got married, I’d be so happy I could just shit all over the place!
So I go outside to have a quick go on my vape, and I continue my line of thought, why was I never married? I was thinking back to my childhood, back then in the 70’s we thought the world might end at any moment due to nuclear war, you know, the Russians and the Americans, and us in the middle, so why bother to get married if the worlds about to end? Oh, the happiest day of my life! Boom! Blast! Bang! WTH??
Nowadays of course, we don’t have the nuclear threat so much cos now its germ warfare, Putin started it cos he got a flea up his nose which irritated him, so our leaders realise they have to show leadership, cos people are happier if they’re led, so if a leader is prepared to go to war, its better, you should try it! You might like it!
Oh well, that was as far as I got with my thinking, I thought it was pretty deep, perhaps I didn’t get married, cos I thought it was all some kind of sticky plaster, rather than a solution to the worlds problems? I mean, why say oh its the happiest day of my life, when there’s much bigger problems that need fixing first? So thats my advice, just get a divorce! Think that shit thru better next time k?
Now, where was I, oh yeah, I’m doing this fairy tale thing I’m working on, here’s the first 3 characters – I just love em! They look real cute, real looking, but cuter! Thats so weird!! I shall hopefully post them animated shortly, but you know I keep getting waylaid and distracted by this and that! 🙂
