    It’s Sunday: Week Review

    by

    This half of the week passed in a blur! I also needed to get my stuff done asap before I left on a class field trip to a Buddhist Monastery in West Virginia. Internet access isn’t really an option,  as the main point is to cut off from society. It …

    It’s Wednesday

    by

    This half of the week has been pretty slow for the Hit Me gang. Since our discoveries about the identities of our clients last week, the gang has needed a bit of a breather.

    We are in the process of calling each other to make sue that we all know …

    Week 12: What’s Happening Here

    by

    So, this week we started the final stretch for this class and created our Agency websites and went ahead and began compiling information and “clues” sent to us by the professors. My group’s mission is called, “From Russia With Love.”

    To be completely honest, I was a bit lost this …

    The Beginning of the End: Week 11

    by

    I have to be honest, I started this week with the thought, “what the hell are we supposed to be doing.”

    I mean, I set out all the assignments and junk as per usual to keep myself organized and on track, but still had the, “ok well what the hell …

    To Quote Some Dude…

    by

    “I don’t like green eggs and ham.”

    I was struck with the potency of these words.The poor guy was trying to impart what he liked and didn’t like, but was constantly belittled. The “moral” of the story was to try new things and to be open to change. I think …

    I Can’t Believe I Watched This Movie

    by

    So, I’m hitting up the cinema the other day with my friend Shirley, and we decided to go see a re-showing of Snow White and the 7 Dwarfs.

    This is, surprisingly, the first time I’ve ever seen this film. I think I can sum up my whole opinion on the …

    Will Work For Lipstick

    by

    I have finally put my writing talents to work and have created a resume for you all to enjoy. I must say, the one page format was rather limiting, and unfortunately I could not include ALL of my banking experience. However, if you must, go look at it.

    Also, as …

    I was at the gym this morning, and on my way back I overheard perhaps the best conversation I’ve ever heard in my life. I feel blessed. This is a poem based off that beautiful chance encounter. I would like to share it with you. I hope you are as …

    PILOTS WANTED

    by

    For this assignment we were to create a propaganda film from the 1930s and 40s. I guess I kinda did that… if the 1930s and 40s had giant fighting robots that is.

    I mean, I wasn’t there how am I supposed to know? Victoire had a ds- she did a …

    Jaeger Bomb

    by

    So Pacific Rim is one of my favorite movies. Mainly because it’s the stupidest movie I’ve ever seen and I love every second of it.

    If you haven’t seen it, shame on you. SHAME.

    There’s no Victoire reference here at all. I just REALLY like this movie and am PUMPED …

    Is This Your Final Decision?

    by

    The moment we’ve all been waiting for.

    The decision.

    The decision whether or not to continue working solo, (like the wolf) or to join the pack and work with someone to collaboratively make a kick ass final.

    Well.

    I will be working with Erin Clark, and Stephanie White for the …

    Tea Time Bitches

    It may come as a surprise, but Victoire Absinthe isn’t much of a domestic goddess.

    When it comes to her domestic abilities, she kind of draws the line at basic hot drinks. She’s got enough money an suitors to fill the rest of the meals of the day, to be …

    You’re Burning My Biscuits

    by

    For today’s daily create we were to create a motivational poster of our own design.

    Personally, I have always wanted to look at someone, deadpan, and say…

    “You’re burning my biscuits here, bro.”

    Unfortunately, whenever the opportunity arises, I either forget to say it or chicken out and afterwards I’m …

    Words Seared

    by

    Victoire missed her dead brother.

    Did she ever tell you she had a brother? Probably not. Some things are best to keep close and not let other people see. Lest they use it as a weapon against you.

    He died in the War. It was something that tore Victoire apart. …

    Na-Na-Na-Na I Wonder If Batman Likes Bananas

    by

    For today’s daily create I made a 15 second drawing of something batman related. So, here you go! For 15 seconds, I don’t think this is half bad. But that’s just me.

    But for real though do you think Batman likes bananas cause his theme certainly sounds like “bananas”.

    Most Important Meal of the Day!

    For today’s daily create, I took inspiration from that sponge bob episode where mr krabs tries to scare the drinking hat off of sponge bob with a ghost drawn on the back of a shopping list.

    What a classic. Truly inspirational. I could only find this really crappy clip to …

    It Is Me… Victoire

    by

    This video is a shout out to Victoire… I thought it might be fun to dress up as her to do this quick video. The original assignment was about bragging about yourself, and I figured Victoire would probably be really good at that so I gave it a whirl.

    I actually had a hard time creating this video. It took a lot of time for me to learn how to use all the different types of software, and to implement them into the video itself. Watching the movie took awhile to do …

    Tis Hard To Be A Dog

    For this assignment, I took pictures of my dog from earlier this winter and put them in black and white, and tried to do a noir version…. kinda like Henri the Existentialist Cat. Pretty sure I’m not on that level yet, but hey. I’m trying.

    Weather’s A Real Pain In The Ass

    Today’s daily crate was about writing a poem about the weather. Specifically, rain. Oh, would you look at that! It’s raining out side today. ALL DAY.

    Rain, Rain,
    I see you’ve come again.
    Knocking on my window panes,
    Messing up road lanes.

    Aight so I listened to the noir radio “Dinner at 6″ Thursday night…. the general premise of the show is like the game, Clue. There were a bunch of characters and their host was killed- so the group is trapped and has to find the killer among them.
