So I just noticed today that my journal made Mushu’s vaunted Approved Journals of Awesomeness list. I’m honored . Makes me wish I had some cool pics to post today, but sadly my camera has been quiet of late. Not to say that I have as well! Tuesday was of course the crazy gym night, I was just too tired to post yesterday. I also messed up on a trick on tramp and now my back is a little sore.

So I hit up GG today to learn that T2D is only “days away” from release. I can’t frikin wait!! I want to program again soooo bad. I haven’t programmed anything for almost two months now!! It’s killing me! AUUUGGGHHH!!!! *choke gasp gurgle*

*pants for a bit before recovering*

Damn that was close. Almost seized up and died there.

While browsing the IGDA forums I came across a post in the Lounge about a Star Wars fan film called Revelations. I checked out the trailers and the documentaries – really cool looking film, for the budget anyways. The lightsaber fighting they showed in the teaser/trailer was a little fake-looking, especially from my standpoint as a stunt actor, but it’s hard to know the film like that considering the kind of dedication and spirit that obviously went into making it. I wish I had found out about it earlier so I could have secured tickets to the premier before they sold out. I really hope they decide to release it again – I can’t see why you would go through all this and then release it in a theater only once.

However this film brought back my eagerness to direct, produce, and act in my own fan film. I already have the script written. I guesstimate the runtime at ~15 minutes. It’s an action-oriented feature with 4 lightsaber battles/scenes. Since all my buddies are fellow coaches/martial artists, the fights will of course be fast-paced with lots of gymnastics and martial arts. The thing I like best about the script is how it focuses on the essence of Star Wars, the battle between Good and Evil. I hope to begin production (finally) this Summer. We’ll see.

Finally, I’m still having so much fun driving around in my new car . Just had to say that, cause it’s awesome. I’m going to show it off to some more of my friends tomorrow night. And I also just realized a few minutes ago that today would have been perfect to take my pic with the car. Dammit! Tomorrow it’s supposed to snow again. Stupid snow…

Ok ok, wrapping up here. I decided I needed a cool little “column” or something for my journal, so here it is: Bookmark of the Day. Similar in concept to my Blast From the Past entries, I’ll post a cool bookmark of mine every journl entry. To start:
