now i’ve done it

celebrate_classNow I’ve done it —

I applied for this job : :::this job:::

This required making a mini movie and sending it in. Which of course is kind of tricky since I do not own a movie camera or know how to do anything in i-movies and also just heard about this whole scenario a couple days ago and the deadline is Thursday. But —

This sounded like a very cool opportunity [hanging and working at a winery SO works for me] so I pulled out i-movies and LEARNED how to use i-movies and [because it was necessary too ahhh!] garage band and some other i-movie thingamajigs [and do not think that did not involve serious cursing] and —

Made a mini-movie.

[It probably would have been way better if I had any damn experience with the program and given more time I would have done some additional nifty things but in the end I was happy enough with it I sent it in.]

Wish me luck. I will post a link if they upload the movie. You all are going to vote for me right?


*i sure hope murphy-goode is a real winery and not some bizarro internet scam i probably should have checked that out first um oops


*btw i am insanely proud of the sound track in the mini-movie i am not a musician and have never tried to assemble music from scratch before that was completely unsane and hard for me and it is a little rocky but it works dammit

    Definitely. Sometimes that “primitive” touch can be just what they’re looking for.

    She seems to have a primitive touch, yeah! She reaches in and slowly tears you apart. She seems to have a primitive touch, oh oh oh!

    The way I look at it, anyone who’s done what you’ve done can certain do what you did. Table legs. People legs. Chair legs. Lots of legs. Very Warhol…or ZZ Top. I want more (not legs). “Merlot in the Rue Morgue”, perhaps?

  23. Yay for Max.
    Just getting ready for it.
