Back from aftershock central - and no aftershocks.

It seemed like I was there forever but now I'm a little pissed I'm back. It was FULL ON AS. Some might consider this a bad thing, but I'm the sort who needs to be constantly occupied as I am chronically bored.

So... best photo is:

Some guy on the beach at South New Brighton

I also just took some random boredom photos of my cat d'Arcy, who has been a pansy and following me around all day like a little shadow. He gets weird at this time of year and wants me ALL THE DAMN TIME. He usually couldn't give less of a crap.

d'Arcy being cool

On a different note, I just found out that I passed the year this year. Finally. Now I don't have to go through those bitches telling lies about me and then trying to bribe me off again.

I'm not wearing shoes.

In response to one of the previous posts in here - yes, I even respond to my own posts - I did my CD for Michelle Whitecliffe, and no one even collected it.

Last night was my 21st party. It wasn't really my birthday but oh well. It was great fun, although I got razzed by the door-bitch who needed a good punch in the ovaries. My music is also better than theirs.

Seeing as it was my party and I was like a celebrity or something, this "best photo" is not taken by me, but by my 6 year old cousin (second-cousin), James, of his older brother Joshua.

I'd Really Not Like to Get Too Into This...

I seem to be doing quite a bit of funeral-based work at the moment....... I wonder why.
Not exactly something I'd like to get too into. I can just envisage someone bringing me something I just can't fix, and then being mortally upset over it...

Anyway, here's what I've done so far.

Old photos I had to touch up that took me
around 9 hours

More photos that took ages to finish

Woohoo, design stuff too!

I've Finally Stopped Sleeping

This photo is late as and it's from the other night of Creeping's guitarist.

 Far out, the other night there was a HUGE accident near where I was staying at around 4a.m. No idea how it happened as there were no skid marks or anything, but somehow a van had managed to tip on its side, and a car had managed to plow itself into a building. No one was hurt but we had to stay there a while to help. Needless to say I slept most of yesterday.

Wooo My First Diwali

I did say that I'd post photos from the Diwali party I went to. I also said I'd be posting ONE good image from each shoot.

Here's the image:
Henna by Priya Chetty who is absolutely AMAZING! She
did her own henna - on both arms in the end.
I'm going to a gig with some more *international* bands (from Aussie but you've got to start somewhere) tonight. I'll post my best of that tomorrow.

As Usual, I'm Sitting

I'm a little bit peeved at the moment. I saw Michelle Whitecliffe (head of our university or something) who has JUST told me, with two days to go that I need to have all my work on a CD because she MIGHT want to use some of them for publicity for the university next year.

Thanks for not telling me earlier. I really wanted to have a relaxing weekend (minus the gig and Diwali party but they're minor (photos soon)) but now it looks like I'll have to go into uni. Dammit.

Also, what I've decided I'll do, is that after each photo shoot I will put my best ONE image up in a journal entry of some kind, so that my blog only showcases my BEST work and will hopefully make making a portfolio a hell of a lot easier for me.

I sold my first THREE photos today EVARRR!!
All to the same person to go down to Christchurch ^^
Really happy, seeing as uni has totally raped my bank account around four times this term. Also, I hate those images SO much. They're so ugly.

Here they are:
Yellow, Green and Blue *shudder*

Update: Here is a photo of them on the wall of their new home.

If you're allergic to rants or latex, you should probably steer clear of this post

I cannot begin to list all the bugs and issues both in set-up and design that are wrong with the new Myspace... but I'll try.

The Design Faults
You cannot has transparency!

Why is that THERE and not under 'My Profile'?
Took me forever to find the damn thing.

My friends are nowhere to be found on this page.
Well, that's inconvenient.
Now I have to click another link.

Why the hell is the comments module LIGHT GREY??
It TOTALLY throws out my colour scheme I worked so
hard on!

The Photo Uploading Process
Upon trying to upload a new image, once it's finished uploading it,
it sits there like that for about 5 minutes doing God only knows what.
Once 'Next' IS clickable, there is no linked thumbnail (circled).
On the way up the page to click refresh, you're raped by this
Myspace ad.
After refreshing the previous page, the thumbnail appears.
Click it and it goes through to this page where the image is
meant to be displayed fully, but isn't.
After refreshing the page yet again, and clicking 'Update Profile Picture'
and whoops!
SQUARES ONLY, not forgetting the WTF moment up in the corner (circled).

Other Faults
No CSS? Umm... piss off.
a) There is now no option to add CSS like there was previously,
b) It works fine when I click 'Save Changes' and view my profile, &

Initially we were given a choice to use the new Myspace profile, but now my friends, we are not. A massive suggestion to Myspace: please, please, PLEASE, before updating something, fix bugs and make sure it works completely (or at least 90% completely) first.
