Well first off I’d like to apologize to all the spam bots that actually read my posts here. It’s been quite a long time since I’ve actually posted anything here and I thought I’d take the time to say hey. I’ve been a little busy bee, trying to find a job while worrying about the on-coming winter and doing a few websites like DetroitBengals.com which I did for free…yeah I know crazy me doing free work when I need money. Well I guess anything that keeps kids being productive and out of trouble, which is needed in the fair city of Detroit.

I’ve also been playing Aion…ok, I’ve been play a LOT of Aion. So much so that I’ve probably shunned too much real life to play it. I guess now that I’m getting to the higher levels and stuff, I’m starting to dwindle down on my game time and get back to focusing on other things like web stuff and photoshop and the sort. So it’s back to the drawing board for me…6 months and you know what? I still like the design for downtownrobot which is like a record for me…I’m constantly redesigning and the sort…but I like the layout…so time to focus on the content…specially since I’ve got more work I’ve done since I last updated it…ah well…back to work!

Cogs, Dogs, and video game blogs

Posted by admin on Aug 24, 2009 in Aion, Gaming, Guild Wars, Lotro, Puppy Power, Random, TV, Websites, Work

So, I’ve been working on this website for a manufacturing website in Michigan…like they manufacture stuff like rollers, conveyor belts, etc etc.

Cogswell Cogs

Jetson's were Smart

I did not know that there were such a thing as cogs. Whenever I thought of cogs, the only thought that ever came to mind was Cogswell Cogs. The Jetson’s were awesome! So as my world unraveled with this added information I had to wonder what else in the world could there possibly be???

Then I got lazy and went off to walk the dogs and came back and read some tweets and blogs.

My dogs hate people. Really they do…I don’t know how they like me and Gabs. Seriously though. Like Mana, the mini schnauzer, hates pretty much everyone. Though he seems to have come around to my nephews, that was only after a cheese induced bonding session in which fatty was given all sorts of treats. Trogdor…chihuahua…nough said…he’s only fine if you pick him up. Pretty much if you put him in a stranger’s arms he won’t do anything but sit perfectly still, put him on the ground and he’s like a firecracker…he starts barking and biting and nipping…Those are the motley boys…they’re tiny terrors that like to protect the apartment from just about everyone and everything.

In my time of unemployment, since no one seems to want to hire me despite 4 years of college and having been working since I was 18 and having many years of experience in several different fields…I’ve been taking the time to visit a few things that I’ve been wanting to learn about and just didn’t have the times to do. I’ve been working on a few websites out of charity such as the Detroit Bengals (a non-profit children’s soccer team) and have been doing a couple sites/digital art for friends. Right now I just think that anything to keep my skills building and sharpened is good, even if I’m not getting paid.

Dont know what use this will have in the future, maybe the start of a series of pics

I’ve been looking a little more into Digital painting. This is closer to something I’ve always wanted to do. I really want to go back to school…maybe take a class or two on digital painting…if I could learn to do concept art that would rock my socks…

And I’ve been playing games…Aion is great…I wish it were released already…I’m getting a little tired of dealing with beta weekends and the impending doom of server wipes. I want to work on the toons I’m going to be playing and keeping forever. They also made the announcement about Guild Wars 2. They finally released the trailer after 2 and a half years of waiting for some kind of information. The trailer is just plain sweet. No better words can suffice to explain how much joy this brings me.

Well…that’s pretty much all you’re gonna get out of me for now…so whoever reads this…peace easy…and catch you on the flip side.

Time Management

Posted by admin on May 4, 2009 in Aion, Random

So it’s another day, another unseen resume, another futile wish that I were somewhere else…Every weekday I have to plan out how much time I’m going to dedicate to something or other that I’m working on…3 websites, a few print arts, the dogs, the job search, cleaning, gaming…More than not the last is the strongest urge no matter how tight money is…the thrill of escaping it all…unemployment…cleaning…the pale in the comparison to the death of 200 wargs at the point of my warden’s javelin. But I have to be a grown-up…or at least pretend to be one…

I’m so close to being done with downtownrobot that I want to get it done…but there are other things that need to be done…like shit I hope to get paid for…I need money…need it bad…Unemployment’s craptastic representation of the amount of work I put in at Circuit City is barely enough to survive off of…I need to change the font on pastepastepower…that will be a quick fix at least…I need to find a decent station on pandora…that will take a bit of trial and error…at least the lotro servers are down and can’t tempt me…but that doesn’t stop Aion from tempting me…Aion with all it’s winged glory…

Well, I guess it’s off to finish what I can for the day…Maybe I’ll get most of DTR done…I’ll definately finish up PastePastePower and hopefully get working on Lathrup’s image gallery. That would definitely make Gabby happy…
