Allergies And Life Never Mesh

allergies are dumb
I'm having a slightly difficult time properly describing my absolute loathing of allergies right now. I need more Zicam.

And, keep helping me with my graphics class final project, please and thank you!

A Band (Help Influence Me!) And My Design Class

Posted by Nukaya , in Art May 24 2009 · 49 views
art project
Ok, so I need everyone's help for a project I'm doing in my graphics class. It's for my final project, and basically what it is is that I have to design a logo, a CD cover, and CD booklet for a made-up band. I have rough drafts for two different logos: number one and number two. I think my general style would be sort of alternativeish, but still kind of quirky, like Sia, Imogene Heap, lady danville, Dave Matthews Band, and a bit of Operator Please all mixed up together.

What I need help with is ideas for a band name and different names for songs. And since I believe y'all are rather creative peoples, I think you guys would dream up some great ones! I would do it myself, but the last time I had to make up bands and design CDs for them, there were track names such as "Mongolian Tribble", "Emo Emu", "Rum For My Parrot, Tea For Me", and "Sprinkles and Bullets", which I think weirded my teacher out quite a bit when I handed my project in.

So, many thank yous in advance if you care to assist me with this.

Also....some of my art projects from my design class, if anyone cares for a peek of what I've been up to....lots more to come later:
First project and a detail shot. Bleh. It kind of got....messy. And very last minute.
Object project: We had to take an object and warp/change it while still keeping some sort of recognizable elements of it. Take a gander at what I chose?
Metamorphisis project: Two AM, paper, and xacto knives are not a good combination.
Colour wheel project: The love-hate relationship with acrylics continues!

No Quiz

Posted by Nukaya , in Life May 19 2009 · 44 views
college, my professor is a butt
My professor (Kerry) this morning in class: "So due to the heat wave we've been having, I was too tired to write up the quiz for you all to do, so no quiz today.

As interesting as the half of that book was at one AM and my sudden mastery of walking up stairs and reading at the same time this morning, I couldn't decide if I wanted to do an excited fist pump or throw my book at him.

But he did like my typography assignment, so yay! And, my final for that class may be involving help from you all.

Let's See Just How Fast I Can Read

Posted by Nukaya , in Life May 19 2009 · 45 views
college, class
Because last Thursday, my professor was all "Oh and by the way, test on Tuesday. Make sure you're up to date on the reading!" But, since this past weekend was lovely and warm and sunny and perfect for running around (even though I didn't have anyone to really hang out with), being responsible and doing homework was completely out of the question.

So, we're going to see if my super crazy reading skills will translate over to this book about typography in the next couple of hours.

And the most gloriously random thing happened yesterday. So, I walk back to my dorm to grab my camera and its all sunny and 80 degrees out, a couple of clouds here and there, but I come back out and something hits me.

The next thing I know, these huge, fat raindrops just start pelting out of the sky, but at the same time, it was as sunny as it could be. And then it starts getting that smell that only happens right after it starts to rain and it hasn't rained in ages and it's all awesome.

A Peculiar Yet Very Nice Dream

Posted by Nukaya , in BZPower and LEGO, Life May 18 2009 · 39 views
dream, sign language
So I had a dream like a month back that I was at EW's house for some reason (though I don't know how I got there) and we were hanging out and then Tarik, Roa, ChocolateFrogs, Lady K, VF, and a bunch of other BZPers showed up out of the blue and we had a spontaneous party. And it was really out of the blue: as I recall, we were sitting there and people pretty much apparated into the room.

I forgot about that dream and I just randomly remembered it and I thought you all should know, because it was a good dream, until I woke up and was like "Dang it!"

In other news, I am absolutey loathing my lack of proper knowledge of ASL grammar. Translating songs sucks sometimes, especially when you don't want the literal English-to-ASL translation. As gorgeous as they can make songs and poetry and daily conversation, there are too many idioms in the English language that are a living nightmare when it comes to translating.

Spring Fling And Centrevol

Posted by Nukaya , in Photography, Life May 16 2009 · 50 views
music, centrevol
Basically yesterday went like this:

I go to the radio station at like 8:45ish and I'm doing my show and I'm there and it's going great, and I'm finding awesome music and around 11, Brian, our station manager calls me: "Hey, Maddison, there's a band coming in and I'm interviewing them, so I'm kicking you off the air an half an hour early."

Except, Brian didn't know what time they were coming and I just ended playing stuff until they got there, so it was pretty much the full time anyway. So, they (the band, Centrevol) finally show up and we're all in the studio, which consists of Peter, Kai, Jon, Nate, plus Peter's wife, plus me and Brian, and it's putting the place on the verge of squished because there's extra microphones and wires and things going everywhere. Anyways, Brian's still setting stuff up and I was playing one of the songs off of their promo cd, which is all fine and dandy until I go on the air and proceed to say:

"So, that last song was from Centr-uhm, ok guys, I'm sorry, but is it "Center-val"? How do you pronounce it? Oh jeez, I'm so sorry. Center-vol? Argh. Anyways, uhm, yeah that was their song off their newest album and they're going to be here today playing on campus...."

Now this probably wouldn't have been so bad if it weren't for the fact that they filmed the entire thing to put on their website. But, they were super nice and their interview with Brian went great, and we all headed over to the Spring Fling. Over at the event, they had a velcro wall, gyroscope thing, water slide, snocones, volley tournament, food, and frisbee spin art. And, of course Centrevol. I think their concert went pretty well, even though a lot of people were still just wandering around and playing volleyball, but they sounded awesome. At one point, Nate also yelled for me to pick a number to choose their next song, and then proceeded to inform everyone in the area of the college radio station and how awesome it is and how everyone needs to listen to my show. And while I'm standing there unable to decide to be completely mortified or flattered, it prompts my friend to ask "are you their groupie or something?", which caused me to completely facepalm and make a vain attempt to explain that no, I was not and that this is what I get for hanging around the studio during their interview.

I gave them an Heart in Oregon sticker to put on their van after Kai said my Heart in Oregon shirt was cool. After several attempts to convince me to go with them to Portland, their next stop in the tour, we all said our goodbyes and they drove away while I wandered back to my dorm to deal with a sunburn, photo editing, and some last-minute homework (and believe me, I was ready to just hop in the van with them and go to Portland and then somehow get back to La Grande at a later date. I so want school to be over with right now). It was an unusually great Friday.

Also, this quote made me giggle when I heard it today:

"And please eat more chocolate and please listen to more Coldplay." -Chris Martin

Hey, you don't know this yet, but Centrevol is going to try to get famous and then break up. Sorry about that.-FN

Two Things

Posted by Nukaya , in Eclecticness May 13 2009 · 40 views

One: EW has one of the coolest real-life full name ever.

Two: I have severe mixed feelings towards Disney's The Princess and the Frog movie trailer. The visuals so far look phenomenal, but I'm not so hyped about the actual plot. And, they're advertising it as "the story behind the most magical kiss the world has ever known". Oh, please. We all know that the one between Buttercup and whatisface in the Princess Bride is number one (at least according to the grandpa).

R. A.

Posted by Nukaya , in Life May 13 2009 · 42 views
R.A., college
My mother does not seem to realize that even though she wants me to take a job as a Resident Assistant next year at my college due to the financial benefits of not having to pay for housing or a meal plan for next year, that if I were take the job next year I would most likely completely lose it with being an R.A., the track team, everything that goes along with being an art major, and the rest of my life all clamoring for attention at the same time.

Though, I do now see why you never let me take dance classes as a child. Good move on your part. This class bites.

You weren't an RA. It was a good decision.-FN
