GIF maker extraordinaire?

I did it!  I made a GIF of Wesley doing his excellent pantomime on 30 Rock!  I can't figure out how to make it 16:9, but there you have it.  Oh, it is 16:9.

I have one with words in the works, too, which I'll add to this later.  WOOO!
Michael Sheen, you hilarious darling, you. *dies laughing*

ETA: The one with words is under here!Collapse )


"Stop doing that! You look idiotic."

 I need a GIF/icon of Wesley's "excellent pantomime" from tonight's 30 Rock.  Not want, but NEEEEED.  *goes on the hunt*

Eddie Izzard Stripped Too in Winnipeg!

On Sunday (to my Mother's dismay) I got up early, wished her a Happy Mother's Day* and was off on the road to Road Island Winnipeg!  Well, first I filled the car with gas, picked up Jeremy from town, then we went to Tim Horton's, THEN we were off on the road to Winnipeg!

*I was really tired, so I actually wished her a "Happy Smothers Day!" and smothered her in hugs to pretend I hadn't misspoken.

Eddie Izzard & Winnipeg Misadventures! (Pictures, too.)Collapse )

Writer's Block: Sheldon and Penny 4ever!

Fanfiction: Do you love it or hate it, or are you totally indifferent? Why?

I just wanted to answer this because I agree with the title 100%. SHELDON/PENNY ARE MY OTP!!!

That being said, I do like fanfiction.  Why anyone would hate it is beyond me, really.  Either read it and enjoy it, or don't read it at all!  No reason to hate on peoples' creativity *^_^*


In other news: Eddie Izzard was awesome!  Winnipeg was not.  More on that later when I am more well rested :)

Also, today was THE VERY VERY VERY FINAL DAY of VEDA!  I vlogged every day in April, and today too!  You no longer have to worry about my YouTube videos ruining your flists.  Hurrah!

I almost can't believe I did it.  There were a few very dodgy days there where I was feeling extremely uninspired and the last thing I wanted to do was make a vlog.  It may seem like a strange thing to feel accomplished about, but I'm super proud of myself.  30 videos in 30 days is a record for me, that's for sure. 

I hope you enjoy this look back, in my very final VEDA video:

This one was a lot of editing and sorting through footage on my external hard drive, but it's all over with.  WOOHOO!

Cheers, all.  I'm looking forward to your answers below.
- Linds.


[vlog, edit, export, upload] x 30

Phew!  This whole VEDA (Vlog Every Day April) thing is almost over and done with... I'm editing Day 28 right now, but for now here is one from Day 26!  You'll be happy to know that when my days free up a bit more (meaning, when I don't have to make a new vlog daily) it'll mean more blogs that don't ruin your flists with my videos! *^_^*

Why am I posting this today?  I--I'm not sure.  It does talk a bit about my Twitter excitement, though, and also some other random things.

Cheers, all!

The Benefits of Being a Night Person

 Firstly:  I finally filled up my icons quota!

Secondly:  I sort of want to make my own icons again.  I'll need a program with which to do so, first.

Thirdly:  I was up SO LATE last night, and that is the topic of today's VEDA.

Earth Day 2010

Holy crap it's Earth Day!  To celebrate my VEDA is all about things we can all do to help the Earth.  It was a bit windy outside...

I haven't been posting a lot here, but I've been around at several communities!  I did indeed miss LJ.



Last day.

 Tomorrow is my last day of working at the Curling Club.

I've worked there since September of 2008 (except during the summer when there is no curling), and I mostly enjoy it.  Since Summer is starting up again soon I'm being laid off, but school in the Fall will mean I can't work there 5 days a week anymore, if at all.

The Summer Job search starts now.  I already have a résumé in for an Office Clerk position, as well as a fun animation project I'll be working on for the next little while.  Still, though, it was nice to have the security of the Club.

I need to sleep to be well rested for my last day, but first: VEDA Day 15!  Beercycling.

- Linds.


Naps & VEDA

 I napped from 7:00pm to 11:00pm.  Do you think that will bode will for my sleeping tonight?

Me neither.

The only reason I woke up, really, is because of a bad dream involving very high waterfalls and slippery rocks.  My sleep pattern is already so screwed up and I don't stop working everyday until Friday!


In other news, it's VEDA Day 14!

Oh hey, look!  I got a few icons!  I'm going to search for more, but it's a start.  I can have 35, and so far I have 7... It's a good thing I slept for 4 hours already.  I'll use that time to find mooooore.

Cheers, all!
- Linds.


Chloe Bowie! (VEDA Day 13)

 Alrighty, so one of the reason why I haven't been around a lot (or at all) is because I've been Tweeting and vlogging.  I guess that's two reasons, but there you are.  Twitter really took over for LiveJournal in a way, but now I'm really missing making longer entries, sharing pictures that don't get lost in the followers-shuffle, and most of all the community of LJ!  YouTube sort of helped with the longer-entries bit, I suppose.  But hey, why not just DO ALL THREE?  HURRAH!

This month I'm taking part in something called VEDA, which is Vlog Every Day [in] April.  We're already on Day 13, and today's video is all about my cat Chloe.

If this is ruining your friends page without an LJ cut, let me know *^_^*  It's been a long two years.  I sort of forget the etiquette of it all!

- Linds.

Now to update my icons.  Yikes! *goes on the hunt for sexy Michael Sheen ones*


Apr. 12th, 2010

I miss you, LiveJournal. I know it's been two long years, but... can we still be friends?

I promise to update my icons, my layout and everything!

I've been filling the void with Twitter and YouTube, but I'd like to embrace you once again. (While still totally embracing Twitter and YouTube.)

Wha'd'ya say? Friends?

Here it comes to save the day!

I am now the proud owner of another technological product:

It scrolls up and down, it scrolls right and left, it has squeeze buttons and even right clicks! Once I get a 1TB external hard drive this thing will really help my computer become a super editing machine!


Also, a few of my friends have blogs over at Wordpress and I was thinking of joining them. I would still be on LJ, of course, but Wordpress looks so neat and tidy. Do any of you guys have blogs there? What are it's pros/cons?

Pods and Projects.

I need to get up in three hours to go to the school and edit, so in all sane worlds I should be sleeping. . . but instead I'm updating my iPod's firmware and adding my Sigur Rós library to it. I'll need some music to listen to while I sit at the computer all day tomorrow. I was exhausted today, too, but then when it comes time to sleep I can't. Oh well, it's been like that my whole life. By "it" I mean me?

I'm actually really excited about the project we're working on right now. It's based around a campaign that our college began two year ago about respecting everyone, no matter what. . . We have some strong interviews already with people like the President of the college, the student counselor and various members of the student council. Tomorrow we have one last interview with the guy who pretty much runs the campaign, and then we need to shoot some b-roll of students in halls, eating lunch etc. in the hour that Jeremy has between his classes to teach. During that time I will be editing, and hopefully we will have it done by 4:00 on Saturday! We have until Monday, but there is a shag (our name for a "Stag & Doe" party in Northern Ontario, don't think inappropriate things) on Saturday night and I'd really like it to be a celebratory drunken one.

With the help of Motion I have already designed the lower thirds and beginning titles. Exporting those with different names will take no time at all, but I do have to work on the end credits and finding music. In any case, that's one of the LAST things to do, then you can tweak the cuts to the music a bit.

Today we went in at 8:00 and worked pretty much non stop on it until 4:00 this evening. We began with just the dumped footage, but it actually looks like something now. Jeremy made a hard copy of what he thought the layout of the video should be, so it's more or less set, I just have quite a bit of sound mixing to do tomorrow if I can figure out the proper way to make a noise print. Also a bit of colour timing because I didn't light the interviews consistently at all, and now I'm kicking myself for it. We shot the president on Valentine's day so she wore a bright red jacket and we were shooting with DV! It bled like crazy, but after a bit of colour timing it looks decent.

I think we can have it done by Saturday, no problemo.

Off to bed/more CD importing I go. I'm in the process of picking and choosing only a few of the 2000 picture on my computer for my iPod, too. Cheers!

*Do you think the US government will hack my LJ for this phrase? I mean we shot her interview!
I have a new toy and it's called Psychic Paper. That's pretty much what it is!

Only 8GB, but I really don't need more than that. Plus, it's the difference between $300 and $400 for the 16GB. WOOT! I'm in the process of downloading the new weather, maps and email apps right now. No hacking for me!

I've never had an MP3 player before, save for my cell phone. I'm thrilled!

Le Lune.

We're having a Lunar Eclipse and beer drinking get-together tonight! Tune in, we all get that channel*.

Newfoundland ~ 11:30 p.m. - 12:21 a.m.
Atlantic ~ 11:00 - 11:51 p.m.
Eastern ~ 10:00 - 10:51 p.m.

Mountain ~ 8:00 - 8:51 p.m.
Pacific ~ 7:00 - 7:51 p.m.


*Unless you are in Asia or Oceania.

14 is my favourite number.

I wasn't going to really do anything for Valentine's Day, but I think I have blank paper and a few pencil crayons downstairs so why not? A few hand-made valentines for my close friends, I'll pick up some chocolates tomorrow. . . it's going to be a good time *^_^* When you have no one particular person you can visibly express your Valentine's Day Love for, why not everybody?


I made a new icon! I'm rusty so it's crap (they've always been rather crap, haven't they?) but I was inspired but Sweeney music.

I should probably sleep. It's 5:45 a.m.

jPod, NOT iPod.

If you consider yourself at all a geek and you like a quirky one-hour serial drama then I think you will love jPod. If you're in Canada it's on Friday's at 9:00 EST on CBC.

It's base on the book of the same name by Douglas Coupland:

Click the link and then the red square to watch full episodes on the CBC site!

Full jPod Episodes!


ETA: Apparently you can only watch them on the site if your IP address is Canadian. I've run into the same thing when I try to watch shows on NBC.com, Hulu.com etc. because I don't live in the US. I wish they'd make it all of North America since I get NBC anyways. . . and so you all can watch jPod!
