Got four hours of sleep last night; awoke at 5:00. Met up with Jacob along Davis, then hung out with him and Melissa in the Commons. Class began at 8:00. Felt alright about the exam. I nailed the vocabulary - vocab comes easily for me - and I feel quite confident about most of the slide IDs, even though I blanked out on a lot of the dates. Dates are more difficult for me to remember.

Left shortly after 9:00. Got home around 10:20. Loopy driving back. Had some rice crackers and milk before retiring to my bed for a four-hour nap. Aunt Pam mentioned I looked half asleep when I walked in the kitchen, where she and Uncle Larry were playing backgammon. Turned Draco's heat lamp on, flopped onto bed, fidgeted around until I found a comfortable position.

I had a dream about being in a parking garage where police were looking for a killer. I don't remember if I was the killer or if I was running from the killer, but I sure was acting sneaky. Heh.

Got up again at 3:00. Listened to a bunch of Massive Attack and Assemblage 23 while finishing my final two Printmaking graphic novel panels.

Going to render the rest of my Maya shit tonight and put it on DVD tomorrow. Will print my remaining linoleum pieces Wednesday before class, then bind the pages into a book at home.

AUGH IT'S ALMOST OVER.

HAVE A RANDOM MOOCHER GIF:

I FEEL LIKE PUNCHING MY FINALS IN THE FACE. :|

I'm rocking some epic dark circles under my eyes, too.

THIS POST IS COMPLETELY JUSTIFIED; let me explain. After class today (er, yesterday), Kat and I had one of our EPIC CONVERSATIONS (caps 'cause they're THAT EPIC). We are the Masters of Tangential Conversation: we covered Watchmen (and I briefed Kat on tons of backstory tidbits excluded from the film, mainly concerning Rorschach's childhood); Little Children; the love of cats; our cars; rain; school buses; annoying children (phahahaha); bizarre and raunchy IMDb forum threads; and CORNBREAD. That's not all, but that's the gist. Our EPIC CONVERSATION lasted for an hour and a half on our cell phones.

ANYWAY, Kat understands my persistent geekery once I've attached my interests to a new favorite oddball actor (one Jackie Earle Haley), but she hadn't known that he started out as a child actor. He was in the original The Bad News Bears (this elicited a revelatory "Oooh!" from Kat) in 1976 and Breaking Away in 1979. I'm making this post for Kat when she has Internet access again. 'Tis for amusement purposes, because HOLY CRAP when you realize this guy was Rorschach it comes as a kick in the face.

(TANGENT TIME! I JUST now remembered something: when Mr. Doering screened Dead Poets Society in junior year English, the DVD had a preview for Breaking Away. I remember the gorgeous quarry shown in the trailer, as well as the bicycling theme. I want to see that movie....)

Kelly Leak and Moocher became Rorschach? Yes, indeed! Caps from jeh_fans community. )

OH, but THIS scene takes the cake. JEH as Dukes in Semi-Pro. Dukes is an "especially dirty hippie" and is perpetually stoned. I don't need to watch the movie when I have this one scene (wasn't interested in the movie to begin with, but... just watch this):


^ Dukes' moment of "concentration" KILLS ME DEAD EVERY TIME I WATCH IT. XDDD

"HOLY SHIT I'M A MIRACLE!"

I hereby declare Dukes to be one of the greatest random characters in the history of cinema.

I had a good lawl. Hope you did, too.

Finished!

OH: yesterday's attribution quiz was a piece of cake. Go Leonardo da Vinci!

I've nearly completed another 9" x 12" linoleum piece for my Printmaking graphic novel. Yippee! Feathers are a lot of fun to carve from linoleum.

OH AGAIN: around 1:27, my cell rang. Restricted number. What the hell?

OH FOR THE LAST TIME: for some REAL hearty lawlz, check out LOLSCHACH's Journal! Aurora discovered it first. :3
