July 13, 2012 – Upon a Mid-Night Awakening

13 July 2012 2am upon a mid-night awakening

Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray in dreams my soul will keep
And if I die before I wake
I pray my dreams will forever take
Me to nowhere land

Where never before
Have dreams come true
What is truly nonsense
Feels like nothing new

Where everything that ever was
Will stay that way
And foggy days seem
just yesterday

That sinking feeling falling
Freely backwards heels overhead
Oblivion a twitch too close
Reality a hair too real

Fend off the predators
Fall madly in love
Make the unlikeliest of friends
Or all of the above

Such that it can’t be true
I would never believe you.

Just synchronization
Of day and night
Dear, it is alright
Dear, it is all right.


July 5th, 2012 – Rough Cut

So I got to see the rough cut of FANTOMES for the first time today. Weird. Just cannot get used to seeing myself on camera.

So the one liner description of the film goes something like this: “Fantomes — about a black ops agent dealing with her unexpected pregnancy while on a routine job with her partner. Directed by Nik Green of Global Authority Media. Produced by Nik Green (Global Authority) & Yvette Lu of Rainfield Films. DOP Shane Smith of Red Salt Productions.”

And back to real life, where though I am not editing the film, I am still editing video for my project at the LABlab. EDIT ALL THE THINGS!!!

And now, a screenshot of my character, Amber, looking pensive:

March 19, 2012 – Last Day of Winter

It snowed today. Then it melted. Heather finally hit full bloom today @ SFU.

iPhone photo edited w/ Camera+ app.

March 18, 2012 – Big Sky over Vancouver

March 18, 2012 | Big Sky over Vancouver

March 18, 2012 | Big Sky over Vancouver

It appears that something tumultuous is going on there, weather-wise, in Vancouver.

Panorama taken with Photosynth for iPhone, edited in Photoshop on my Mac. Photosynth seems to only save low quality versions of files, which is disappointing. I think it would be fun to take a bunch of panorama photos from your neighbours’ balconies, and giclee them to canvas for the living room walls that aren’t windows. Voila! Instant awesome.

*EDIT*: March 19th – I think I may have found something better. Autostitch app for iPhone gives better resolution (check it out if you’ve got one of those godly big monitors like mine…much better than the dinky Photosynth business above!). Here is another version where 3 pictures were taken using the normal iPhone camera (could’ve gotten wider angle but wasn’t thinking of it at the time) then stitched using Autostitch, then edited on-phone for colour using the sunset setting and thick black border using the Camera+ app. You can use the Autostitch app to take pictures too but I didn’t have that app last night, now did I?

I like it.:)

My apartment gets awesome sunsets…many more big sky photos to come this year!

March 16, 2012 – Pi Day 2012

Pi Day March 14, 2012 | French Silk Pie

Pi Day March 16, 2012 | French Silk Pie

Pi Day festivities got cancelled this year, and were made up for only half-heartedly on Friday March 16th. I made the french silk pie on graham cracker crust that was a hit at last year’s party. I didn’t add enough chocolate this year, and had nobody to share it with, so it was highly unsatisfactory on all fronts. The only good thing to come out of it was a nicely textured photo.

There’s still some left if you want some.
