I should make an active attempt to be more... uhh.... active here. there are lots of loved ones who i feel like i've been so disconnected with, and this is one good alley to re-establish those connections.
but i think i'm also gonna weed thru my friends list and trim it up a bit. if you'd actively still like to be included, give a shout. happy to do it.

so, in the world. a lot is happening. i'm home. for the first time in a few weeks. my dad is visiting which is super rad. we cut down some small trees today. we're invincible together.

camp is coming up, which i'm stoaked for. and school starts on monday. i will be teaching in the fall, an intro to lighting course. and @notmyjournal and i are super good and gonna go and get married.

and right this very minute i'm feeling a strong need to ask the world to work on clear honest communication with me. I could go for some of that.

the end. much love to ya'll my homies.

I am in the process of trying to get calversion13.webpress.com on it's feet as a webpage for my professional stuff. It's free and pretty easy, and I thank goodness that transversely told me about it. But if anyone has any nudges, suggestions, critiques or otherwise useful or not information regarding a swifter, smoother process, please do it.

The Ailey gig last week went splendidly. Everyone was happy with everyone, and so hopefully we'll be able to do this more in the future. Once I get pictures back, I'll show ya'll some stuff.

Also, tonight I stumbled upon a photobucket account from about 4-5 years ago. I re-downloaded everything and got a lot of pictures that I thought were lost and gone forever back. I also remembered another photo site, but downloading wasn't as smooth so I gave up.

notmyjournal and I have been travelling like ...well... travelers this past month. I now stay home and get ready to start school again, and she continues on in her process. We've been together almost every night for about a month now and it's been awesome. It kinda feels like an end of that awesomeness with starting school again, and her doin her thing that involves places no where near me for multiple days of the week. ::sad panda:: But it will be what it will be, and good and wonderful.

What else? I'm really really excited for Queer Invasion. Like really.

::sigh:: and now I think it's bed time. "Single Ladies" may or may not be playing right now, and the girl, on her way to bed, may or may not have just danced her way there.

Alvin Ailey Dance and me  
01:37pm 20/12/2009
Been working with, and hanging out around Alvin Ailey Dance Co. more frequently these days. Over break, we (the lighting grads) have the opportunity to design for the Ailey School winter performance. Very exciting. So very exciting. In doing my homework on the two choreographers I will be designing for, I happened across a really f-ed up story about a guy, upon entering the Israeli airport, was forced to dance in order to prove his identity with the dance company (the dance company being with him, and also having programs with his face and name in them)

the reputable source

the blogey source

In the rest of the world, school is still pretty darn great. I'm loving it, learning a lot, getting good feedback, learning learning. Friday night, notmyjournal went to see a show that I had designed last year, but not this year. The designer, for the most part used my plot and design and changed somethings up. Watching it, I was surprised by some choices that maybe I made or she had made, that now, knowing what I know about color, I totally wouldn't have chosen. Kinda amazing. This semesters show went splendidly, but still don't know if I can put the video up, nor, honestly do I know how to right now. It's a hunkin big file. Next semester I'm assisting/associating the same guy for lights instead of of projection for Tommy. Also super excited about. And I'm itching to design again. I think this is the longest I've gone without designing something. ::itch itch::

Today is a snow day. I'm watching the plows go by, the kids with sleds heading towards the steepest hill, people slip sliding up and down the street. I'm cleaning, listening to christmas music (it's notmyjournal's fault. Maybe tonight we will see Christmas lights. I guess it depends if we're still in a snow emergency.

::sigh:: it's good to have a life again.

we open the show tonight. Galileo. Been working on a 2 minute sequence that has taken me about 3 months at approximately 10 hours a week to complete. Except for this last two weeks when it was about 10 hours a day. What's the math on that?? 10x12= 120 + 10x14= 140 =260. Yikes. I think I liked it better before doing the math.

Anyway. Huge undertaking. So proud of the video for it. Proud of my video too. Wanna see?

working during tech  
08:55pm 21/11/2009
In the last 15 minutes of tech... question for ya'll.
First- transversely, what do you use for your website? Why'd you pick it?

Secondly, to everyone- which do you like better?
Calversion Design
Calversion Lighting
(my first name)(my last name) Design
(my first name)(my last name) Lighting

And do people have good websites? What do you like about them?

Please and thank you.

Otherwise. I'm looking forward to some time off. Tomorrow- i'm gonna sleep as long as I want. notmyjournal, any interest in a hottub? Taking the train home for the holiday. Will allow me to read and do homework that does not require a drafting board. oh. i'm taking a train home because the brakes died on the truck a few days ago. But now trucky is at a reliable mechanic getting everything fixed. This is the last big fix I think for dear trucky. Have begun squirreling for a less old, less falling apart motor vehicle. ::sigh:: i love that truck.

The end for now. 6 minutes left.
