Family and Friends

I know there's meant to be some sort of Halloween thing going on at the moment but I'm not sure what the hell that is. In Australia it would go something like this;

[Knock Knock]

Rich: [Opens door] What on earth is your damage?

Person dressed as Ghost: Trick or treat!

Rich: Huh?

Person dressed as Ghost: Trick or treat!

Rich: Shut up idiot. [closes door] Release the dogs.

So instead of talking about something I know nothing about I think I'll talk what's going on down here. Over the last few days I've been giving a lot of thought to my family and friends. There are certain times in your life when you focus on those closest to you. Sometimes for happy reasons, sometimes for other reasons. This is one of those times when it's for happy, Happy, HAPPY reasons. Yup! I get to be an Uncle again, there's nothing better than being 'Uncle Riiiiichie, your craaaazy'. I'm so happy for my older brother and his wife! It's their first and is due in June. That'll add some warmth to Winter.

The video below has absolutely nothing to do with the birth of a new member of my family but it does hark from an equally happy time. A couple of years ago one of my oldest friends (I've known them for a long time, they're not old) got married and asked me to video their wedding. This is not something I would normally do, it's never a fun gig, but there was no way I was going to say no to my beautiful friends. But of course I had to do it my way. Enjoy some of the secretly shot Hens night footage... I would show you some of the Bucks night but why would I get myself into trouble.


Oh, and Congratulations again to my Sister In-law and Brother. Woo Hoo, good one ya virile old bastard.

[Update] Oops, I forgot. Everyone should go and see B-Hip and his Halloween movie. It's great! Cause I got a Cameo. Of course it makes the film :)

Take: 76

Jinster! How dare you use that type of lnaguage on my blog!

Ha! You can say whatever you like and be as slightly disappointed as you want as well. There was plenty of the other type of cock as well that night but no video footage at all. The bucks party, there was plenty of video... I wont put anyone through it (read: there's no way I'm putting strippers on my site)

Ok...so...yeah.... I'm pleased as punch for them :)

It was pretty funny actually for the Bucks night extra on the DVD I put about 20mins of us guys playing poker and having a really boring conversation.

It's totally OK MH, I understand. When a monkey is in need of having his tummy rubbed from too much candy he's bound to miss a thing or two.

I disagree, babies are no fun at all. They never pay up when it's their shout. Seriously though, I a big fan of kids who can talk back. Pooping and sleeping are only entertaining for so long.

Had the Sony person here again, googling through from the Beast Adrift post where I mentioned RoughCut a Sony sponsored event. So I went to check out what they were looking at, nothing, yup, none of my old videos were working. They are now after re-embedding them all.

Screwed me again didn't you Vidilife! Is it too much to ask that a notice is sent to say 'due to an upgrade some embedded videos may not work'. Ayyyye. Glad I've changed hosts, I'll gradually migrate everything over to Google Vid me thinks.

In other news, I will be missing RoughCut this year due to a scheduling conflict but it is an awesome event. I hope Sony keep sponsoring it.

In other, other news, this little video has now been played more than all my other videos in less than 24hrs. It's true, people just use the web to surf for sex. Ha! Jokes on them!

Vidilife is a dirty whore.

I disagree on your stance about babies. Pooping and sleeping are simply delightful compared to storming off, running around the house like a crazed rabbit and refusing to do homework.

I rest my case.

Anonymous Rich mused...

I stand corrected! I can see how that would get tiresome after a full day of it. On the other hand, I'm an Uncle, I just hand the kid back and say 'You're being a little... Go home to your mother!' That level of responsibility suits me just fine at the moment.

PS. No, no Vidilife are not, that would imply I pay them. They are a dirty slut.

I'm all a flutter... wait, no I'm not! I don't want the no stinking treasures unless he wins. And there's no way you've been collecting for a year... it took me at least 6 months to send you the Aussie care package, so it could only be for the last 6 months. (tee hee, I'm stoked)

Yeah, the first time my niece said "can you wipe my bottom" after using the toilet I was, ewwwww, and then got my girlfriend to do it. Ha!

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but you couldn't uncover the cock's cock if you wanted to. Birds don't have cocks. They have cloata. Both males and females. Meaning you have to be especially careful on blind dates if you're a bird.

LOL @ your last comment at my place...the cake arrived safely BTW!...but, I have to tell you what happened! I can't put it on my blog because there's a good chance it would be seen by undesirables!

I have a 3-tier 75+ pound cake to serve 200 people, the table they have set up for me is crappy compressed wood with 3 wobbly legs!!! I track down the chef to tell him I need a different table. After 20 minutes he decides he can't help me & puts me on the phone with the country club manager (why was she not there? I have NO idea!) who insists to me (in a condescending tone) that I MUST set that cake up on that table because the bride wanted it there!
*insert jin getting pissed!*
I say, "I AM NOT putting a heavy cake on a wobbly table! If I do I can guarantee to you that by the time the reception starts, that cake will be splattered ALL OVER THE FLOOR! I WILL NOT be held responsible for that. I'll set it up elsewhere, when you come in YOU can set it on that table yourself if you want to."

You know, the whole time I'm talking to her, the word *glint* is flashing in my mind!!! Thinking, DAMN you rich for planting the seed! LOL!!!
Anyway...I don't know what happened with it, I left it on a STURDY table. I'd have LOVED to see this chick try to pick it up herslf, much less balance it on a wobbly table! LMAO! Pictures will be up later tonight.....

Sunflower, I'm sorry I kept reading that as kiss-ass-unflower. I had to shorten it.

The simplest answer to that is... No, haven't really written about it. Um, well, I was always top of my school in art, that helps with the drawing/painting part. Then what I did was got a couple of programs, namely Photoshop, Premiere, and AfterEffects. Then I played with them until I knew how they worked inside out, that took a while. And then I thought of things to animate and, well, Voila!

If you're interested in animation you should check out the ever cool ArthBard's site. He has a wonderful explaination of how he's just produced his first animation.
