Clerks II

 
Put simply, Clerks II is a cesspool of moviedom, and I want more.It's 5 years after the events in the classic Clerks, and we hope that Dante (at least) has moved on with his life. You would have thought all that rhetoric about "shit or get off the pot" would have come to something, right? If so, please write "optimist" in black sharpie on your forehead. Dante is still working at the quickstop, and it's time to open.At this point, the filming is still black and white, faithful...

And Zathas said, "Time? There is infinate Time."

 
Sometimes I honestly don't know what I'm doing withNovella anymore. It seems since I posted the Revision 4 Outline sometime last month, I've been at a lost with the whole project. In the last revision, I had clearly defined goals I felt I could fulfill. I was to reformat the outline into a clearly defined sections, breaking up the 13 page list that predominated the previous revision. I added Character Bios so that I could finalize details like height and eye color. And finally, I spend a...

So, here's the plan:

 
With all the attention I've been giving to setting up Drupal and tessflynn.net, I haven't had much time to work on Novella. In fact, the time I had given myself to put up the site has bled over from three days to a week. As a result, I'm now short a week for working on the story.Part of the goals I decided upon for Revision 5 included the establishment of web technologies for the project. Originally, I had planned on using WordPress and a specialized theme for the site. Since discovering...

Tomato Soup of Doom

 
Aside from cringing in pain for several hours this afternoon, I haven't done much that I consider "useful" today. Thankfully, the Tomato Soup of Doom seems on it's way out of my system now. (Note to self: Never use soy milk in condensed tomato soup -- at least the "Healthy Request" kind.)Earlier today I did manage to get out of the apartment and work on Novella for a few hours. I'm trying to make a habit of traveling to a coffee shop and working on the outline over a...

Welcome to deninet5.0r!

 
So, after nearly two years of deninet running on my own content manager, I give up on it. Sad, huh? It feels like I just finished writing Gazelle when I tear it down and put up a completely different system. Figures, eh?There's a distinct purpose that I converted the site to a new system. For the last several years, I've been working very hard to create my own content manager, while pushing away my other project ideas. Novella is one of those ideas. It got to the point that I was actually using...

Black Beauty

 
A Specialized 2006 Crossroads. I've already modified it with a Cateye speed sensor, a Specialized Mini Airforce II pump, and a Blackburn trail rack. The water bottle is also new, a magenta Polar Bottle.A girl has to put her toys somewhere.I've been having a lot of trouble with my Schwinn mountain bike as of late. A lot of blow tires, one after another after another. I named her Ino, after the Naruto character. She was a cheap bike, but did not wear well when I started to bike seriously. My building...

Gardens in Portland

 
Chinese Classical Gardens Tower of Cosmic Reflections The upper floor was where the unmarried women of the family were cloistered. In Chinese society, it is improper for a lady to be seen, unmarried women especially. Now this building serves as the garden's tea house. Bamboo This was the first time I had seen real bamboo. I have had "Lucky Bamboo" before, but that isn't the same type. This kind was growing from the ground, something that seems unimaginable to me. Limestone...

Her name is Rei

 
I have a curious habit. I name my computers. Usually, I name my computer after an character I like after an anime I've recently watched. When I bought my vaio, however, there wasn't any characters that I liked enough. So, it when unnamed for a while. My work laptop was having some troubles, so I decided to bring mine instead. When I'm traveling for work, I only bring my Vaio, since I'm far more comfortable with it. While working in my cube, I looked over my shoulders and found myself looking directly at...
