Agony of Defeat

My fantasy football dreams of victory have come to an end. What went from a large lead for me ended with a loss in the last seconds of the Monday night game. I still had a nice lead as the Texans were driving down the field with 1 minute left. In that one minute, everything was flushed down the drain for me. Now most passes were going to my opponent’s player and he was chipping away at my lead. With mere seconds left and the team near the goal line, all that needed to happen was for my opponent’s receiver to not catch a touchdown pass. Then, that exact thing happened and my fantasy football season was over along with the 4th quarter. I’ll admit that I had already counted my chickens because it was a real long shot that he would be able to overcome my lead with one player left. It happened though and the receiver had one of those special games that you might get once a year out of a player and with it came a boat load of points. I’m still a little bitter and reeling from the loss. It’s still somewhat sinking in. I was visualizing my next match up and now I can only look forward to next year. Sigh.

I guess I’ll use my work here to distract my mind from what almost could have been. I’ll delve deep into the world of advanced programming, flash programming, and animation. I can easily get lost in the lines of code running logic problems in my head, planning out new additions, and furiously running through code to determine the cause of errors. With animation duties, I can get lost in the intricacies of making the inanimate come to life without looking like it is completely robotic, unless of course it is a robot that is being animated. So onward I go into the day distracting my mind. I should be good for the work week, but Sunday will probably bring back the bad memories.

Unwanted Visitors

My uncle has been staying with us all Christmas season so far to work at the Christmas tree farm and he’s supposed to be leaving today. He came a week before Thanksgiving and has been with us ever since and it’s a consensus among everyone that we can’t wait for him to leave. This uncle is from Florida and we live so close to the farm that he asked to stay with us and it seemed OK, but he has fully overstayed his welcome. Luckily an uncle who also works at the farm, and lives about 45 minutes away is taking a vacation from work at his normal job to be at the tree farm. That allows the uncle staying with us to not have to stay any longer. I just hope he actually leaves. In the past he has asked to stay for a week and ended up staying a few weeks. It’s kind of hard to kick a relative out of your house after you’ve already said they could stay. This morning, he was telling me how he needs to fix a bearing on his trailer before he goes and all I could think was that he was setting up an excuse for why he couldn’t leave yet. He’s been a slob and a moocher and he needs to go, but my Dad says he can’t turn away family. Patience is wearing thin though and we want him out. I will be really downtrodden if I get home tonight and he’s still sitting there. Even if he leaves me another mess of beard hair in my bathroom, but is gone, I would prefer that to him still being there and being clean.

Next Stop Hollywood

I found out last night that apparently one of the movies that some friends made for a festival is now listed on IMDB (Internet Movie Database). This movie ended up winning best film of the whole festival and they were invited to go to California to compete in a winner’s festival. The time they filmed this happened to be one of the times I was staying in Philadelphia, so I got to help out. I ended up getting to play one of the zombies in the movie in a chase scene. It isn’t much, but I’m in there doing my best mindless zombie run in a group. It was enough to get in the credits and apparently also enough to get listed on IMDB as well. So now you can find me on IMDB! How cool is that? The movie is called “Two of Harts” and I’m listed as zombie Jimmy. I’m now wondering if my role as a creepy shadow in the movie I helped out with last week will get me another IMDB credit. I might end up looking like I have a pretty good acting resume not too long from now, even though I can’t act. From now on, I guess you’ll find me in my luxury trailer on various movie sets munching on food from the Kraft services table. Either that or I’ll still be doing what I have been doing.

What I’m doing is working at Dynamic Digital Advertising as an animator, programmer, and 3D modeler. Every week holds something different for me as far as what type of work I may be doing. It could be animating in 3D, making an interactive application with Flash programming, or making an admin section to control a website’s displayed content with some custom programming. I, with my fellow digital savvy workers, can handle any type of media related work you can throw at us. That’s because our list of services is gigantic and encompasses all types of things like video production, digital photography, copywriting, graphic design, custom web design, search engine marketing (SEM) and everything else in between. Don’t think of us as just an advertising firm, that only makes up a small portion of what our actual work is. Think of us more as a digital firm, where we can bring any thought you have in a digital medium into a reality. So give us a call or visit and see what we can do for you.
