Lots O' Nothin!

  • Never ending rendering - So my never ending project is about at an end. I really can't thank the client enough for being patient. Let's just say that rendering at HD res adds just a "wee" bit of render time AND Lightwave doesn't render the hypervoxels so fast at that res. I'm pretty tired of not having my main computer. That and losing a hard drive a few weeks back makes me ready to give my computer a little break. About 30 frames to go!
  • Running after being sick - I was sick for about 3 weeks. Not too bad of sickness - tired all the time, headaches, etc. So for about that much time I didn't really jog. So last week, I tried to start up again. Wow did I lose a lot of my runnin' mojo. Before I got sick, I was running 6 miles most days and close to 10 every other weekend. This week, I started at completing 2 of my 4 mile circuit and after a week of it, I'm only barely back at 4. The funny thing is I lost nothing on the lifting front....strange.
  • Pirates of the Caribbean - Saw this last weekend with some friends. To get ready for it, I watched the first one the night before. The movie was a fantastic popcorn flick...just a whole lot of fun. It was a little long, but not too bad. On the special effects front I just have to say, "Wow!" Davy Jones is the most amazing cg character I have yet seen on the screen. The greatness of Golum has been eclipsed and my mind is still reeling at the how's of it. It was a special effects smorgasborg and I can't wait to pick up the DVD to see the behind the scenes.

Sorry that you were sick guy. I've picked up running again here lately and I'm just happy I could do a mile without stopping after not running since last fall.

Keep up the good work and stay in touch yo.

I agree. Davy Jones is amazing. I gotta pick up a Cinefex magazine and check out how they did it.

Re: getting sick and losing muscle mass. It happens very very quickly, but is also regained pretty quickly. One week is enough to lose about a pound of muscle mass and stamina/endurance? Well,...yeah...those things come and go. But the good news is that this stuff comes back pretty quickly if we stay on top of it as much as we can.
