Price Adjustment

Today I received an email from GameStop advertising their Spring Sale where a whole butt load of games were on for ridiculous sale prices (like 90% off). So I figured I'd take a jaunt in there to see what I could see see see. Upon rechecking the email on my phone I discovered that only select titles were 90% off, so my original plan of getting Skyrim was destroyed, but I did see Bioshock 2 in the email list for $4.99 which I figured wasn't a bad deal at all. I've been looking at getting Bioshock Infinite because it looks adequately awesome, so I decide I'd give 2 a play to get me back up to speed on the Bioshock Universe.

Anywho, that's all.

Drum Roll Please

Well folks the deadline is here and the judging shall commence shortly.  In case you are reading this and have absolutely no clue whatsoever as to what I'm talking about, I'll fill you in.  Recently I took part in a 48 hour film challenge and the submission deadline for the whole rest of the festival is today.  I personally don't have anything else to be handing in for it but this means that the judging should be starting within the next day or two here.  On April 9th I should know how my team and I fared, so I will be sure to post the results here, along with a link to the unlocked video on YouTube.  In the meantime check out the poster for the movie.

Film Review - Oz: The Great and Powerful

I am just doing a quick copy/paste job on this one under a new title to keep things uniform since I'll probably do more of these.

So today I saw the new Oz movie with James Franco: Oz, the Great and Powerful. I have to say although it sat a little strangely at first, Franco's over-acting really sold it for me in the end. It was very clear that it was intentional and I don't think he could've done that much of a better job than he did, so good job James Franco, you nailed it! The movie definitely had a few good 3D moments but I actually think the 2D version does it enough justice. Without spoiling anything, I will say the ending makes the whole movie worth it. If you ask me if I recommend it I would say yes, go for it.

Anywho, that does it for the film review post for now, tune in next time for some other movie, possibly Jack the Giant Slayer. Cherio humans.

Back From Outer Space

It's been a few days. I've been away in the mountains for a while, way outside my regular data coverage zone, and I'm just back yesterday, so this is my first opportunity to get back on posting. It was a pretty good trip, and I tell you the beds in the hotel were AMAZING. They were soft and for once sleep was actually a welcome part of the day. Then again the days of walking probably helped tucker me out a bit. I managed to get a supply of Mars Planets from the candy shoppe as well so I'm set for a while in the chocolate department.

Also, I found a sign with a Bruce Willis sticker on it.

There will be more posts to come, probably even later tonight, so stay tuned and stuff, I have a few things to talk about. Toodles.

Follow The Yellow Brick Road

Oh sorry, did I say yellow brick road? I meant snow-white, bumpy, icy, semi-asphalt excuse for a road. I'm off to see the wizard at any rate, the wonderful wizard of the mountains. That's right I'm headed off to Banff for a few days and hopefully get some severe "chillaxing" time in. Maybe it'll be a good time to get some writing done.

Ok that's enough for now. Bye bye now.

Oh So That's How This Works

I am very quickly realizing that when there isn't a lot going on, things are moving slowly, minimal homework to do, etc. it is more than likely that more nothing will continue to happen. But as soon as things start picking up, you make plans and you're back to being busy, every single opportunity you were looking for before comes up as a possibility.

Ok so maybe not EVERYTHING I wanted to do is coming up now, but after quite a while of a very calm existence, I'm starting to get invited places, asked for help on things (important things)...

On the bright side, I may be helping work on a feature film in the foreseeable future. So that's pretty cool. If you guys are interested go check out the trailer on the CineCoup film accelerator website:
And then go check out the Facebook page for the film:
As well as the production company's website:

Anywho that about does it for this little instalment, stay tuned and stuff. Alveterzane.

3 Days More

3 days of rest left before I start filming all over again. If I don't have any entries between now and then, you can just assume I'm sleeping.

Bye bye now.

How Do You Sleep?

No seriously how? Before you ask, I am at 3 127 sheep.

3 127, 3 128, 3 129...

I just finished walking around the set of our short film all day, from 9:30am until now. We think it turned out really well, but there were casualties. 10 in total. 5 pairs of feet are now almost completely obliterated. Well it was worth it, this was by far my favourite film project to work on yet, not because of the content of the story, the location, or anything else like that, but because of the crew I got to work with. I'm not used to being able to work with people who are just as committed, creative, and willing as I am, and it was a super amazing experience. Now that I know where to find these people, and they know where to find me, I can foresee myself working with them a lot more. We had great equipment, great actors, and a great crew, and now that we are heading off to post production, hopefully a great product. Wish us luck!

Film Festivus

Well it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas and today at 4pm I begin the pre-production for a local 48 hour film festival project. I'll actually have a team this time around so that'll be a nice change of pace, I'm sure it will be grand.

Bye bye now.

Crane Shots to Solicit Emotion

So the new episode of Community was pretty great. I really liked the old documentary style ones, but I also enjoyed the pov swaps in this one.

If you have no idea what I'm talking about, go check out "Community" on NBC, new episodes air every Thursday, it is the funniest show on the planet! Also be sure to wait for the credit bit at the end!

Anywho, that be it for me, cherio lads (and lassies).

I'm Dreaming Of A Green Summer

Snow continues to fall in the Great White North. We were almost clear, but nope, more snow. We must be at almost a foot overnight. Sigh.

On The Road Again

I am on a bus. A stationary bus, but a bus none-the-less. We are meant to have left by now, but the person who is actually supposed to be in charge remains MIA. Now we wait.

Bye bye now.

That is all.

Skeletal Design

So apparently there is now a way to make a website without actually making a website. We in the biz call this wire framing and it's pretty much let's you make a fully functional website that has the potential to look as good or bad as you want. It's really meant for planning the real version but of course I am going to attempt to use it to find a way to cheat my way out of learning C++...

Anyway, bye bye.

Another Day, Another Destiny

I am writing this with one express purpose. People must go on the Internet and find the Golum version of "I Dreamed a Dream". It will change your life.

That is all. Farewell.

Close One

Just about missed a day of posting. That could have been catastrophic. Well today I slept in, watched last night's episodes of the walking dead and talking dead, had a massive bowl of Crave cereal, and played Sleeping Dogs, followed by listening to the cazzoo rendition of "one day more" from les mis. It was amazing.

But now sleep time. Cheers.

Does Whatever a Spider Can

Just some dudes on an electrical tower. Y'know, doing... Stuff.

T- 5 Days and Counting

Thus concludes my epic adventure to in both real life and fantasy.

The trip was crazy beyond all reasoning, and everyone is pretty much dead tired except the few of us who are accustomed to late nights and early mornings, but it was totes worth it.

In Dungeons and Dragons news, we completed the first encounter, but that's essentially as far as we ever got. Oh well, back to our regular characters now I suppose.

I also seem to really want to go see a movie today, so maybe I'll do that when I get back home. There are actually a lot of good movies playing right now, maybe I'll see more than one, who knows? I don't have any classes tomorrow morning so hey, maybe I'll see ALL the movies!

Any-who, this is getting pretty long so I'm going to sign off for now.


Home Away From Home

Well the good news about breakfast this morning, is that they have rice crispies here. This breakfast has been saved, thank you Kellogg's.

Anyway, that's it. Cherio.

If a tree falls in Blackroot...

Today, I played dungeons and dragons with a crew of folk and we cruised through the first encounter in a stunning 2 hours. We are currently taking an extended rest (in real life as well). Before the rest however, I cut down a tree which we intend to have our artificer who is also a master alchemist turn into gold when we resume. We'll see how that goes.

Any-who, we're taking a siesta to prepare for our late night continuation. Cherio.

Magically Delicious

Today I broke open the lucky charms. No milk or bowls to be had as of yet, so I'm going cakeless- I mean milkless, and just eating them dry. It's quite amazing.

It's the Fuzz

We just got passed by a bunch of cops. Thought they were pulling over the school bus a ways in front of us for a minute. Sadly they weren't. Alas, my cell data is screaming in pain.

So cherio

Cheese With That?

For supper today, I went to Wendy's and tried to order a Jr. Cheeseburger, but apparently that isn't actually a thing... So instead I got a cheddar cheese burger and it is essentially cheese, with a side of burger. Not only does it have sliced cheese, but also cheese sauce.

In other news Korea. If this doesn't make sense to you, just type "Korea" into Google, the auto complete should tell the story for you.


Getting down

It's Friday, and thus the end if the school week. *content sigh*
Now since there's no wifi at the bank, this is chewing through my data so I'll make this quick. Tonight at 6pm I am headed off for a weekend of cabin life, complete with Cinnamon Toast Crunch, no-name sparkling pink grapefruit drink, and a potentially chaotic game of Dungeons and Dragons.

May not get the chance to post anything while there, but I shall try for pictures!

Just figured out how to put a hit counter on here... you'd think Google would just have a wigit for that, but nope.  Oh well, although I will probably never get those precious minutes back again, it was a learning experience.  Anyway, just thought you should know.  As you were.

Nick Clark. Hi.

Welcome to the blog of me!  As fair warning to you internet, I am absolutely terrible at being regular about anything, especially when they require me to log in, but hey maybe my memory will actually keep me in line this time.  But enough of that, have some info about me:

Video games, internets, books, movies, and writings.  That's what I do.

Anyway, I don't know how to end this off so cherio.
