So, I originally put out this post without including 73/365 from yesterday. I totally thought I posted it and was completely on my game. I’m still not convinced. Either way, here’s the edit, including the photo from Saturday.
9.7.08 – “Spontaneity” – 74/365
Today was my birthday and I was sitting at home on the computer when I got this incredible itch to do some stop animation. I’ve never done this before and was really excited. So I knew I needed a story and an inanimate object. I happened to have a major hankerin’ for a pickle and thought "well, a pickle is about as lifeless as it gets", so I set up the ole tripod and went at it. This is one of the many stills from that project which you can view here.
Last night a huge group of my friends and I went bowling in celebration of my birthday, which isn’t really until tomorrow (the 7th), and had a swinging good time. Afterwards we ate incredibly too much at Denny’s and made the terrible mistake of heading back to campus where we used to entire Fine Arts Building as our personal playing field for serious games of Manhunt and Capture Flag (multiple levels, multiple staircases, elevators). Needless to say after three hours and by 2am we were all ready to puke, but pretty much decided we needed to turn our antics into a weekly league and meet every weekend. It’s going to be great and I hope it actually happens a few times before I move!
I created some animated gifs of the “better” bowling techniques I noticed at the alley and put them in this set for my friends and fellow Flickrites to enjoy.
