the bfa and other good things

yay so we got into the bfa program. i mean they tried to make it seem all intimidating and competitive saying they had way too many people applying and they can only take the very best. i don't know how true any of that was but i'm really happy that we both got accepted! amber's work has taken off drastically. she's been doing video installations and such and they've just really been top notch work. her mountains literally put me back west, and her dream machine was crazy. i liked my latest, as well. it was a mystical relic, a piece of alchemy working through the law of contagion. it produces introspection and individuation in the viewer- i think quite successfully. the critique for it went really well.

the french lit class has been good for us both. reading a lot of very inspiring and influential things, and also learning more about the origins of things that i already found inspiring, such as michel gondry's work, jean-pierre jeunet's le fabuleux destin d'amélie poulain, most certainly all of wes anderson's masterful work, as well as much more about the bohemian movements and the nasty bourgeois. my favorites so far have been arthur rambaud's poetry in illuminations and some of verlaine's poems. i also liked kate chopin's the awakening, although this was american french creole lit, but still interacting with the french literary movements.

next quarter i'm taking holography and an art history course. also, i'm taking another print class next quarter :S !! i don't know if it's a good idea or not, its serigraphy, so it shouldn't be too bad. it's with ian again. i just don't want the money, time, and life drained out of me again, but either way i know i'll make good work if i take it, so i'm going to. think it'll just be me and 3 print majors in the class so i'll be the odd one out. no one else in their right mind would probably volunteer for torture unless required.

so it was my birthday a few days ago. amber got me a trip to evolved which i haven't cashed in yet. don't know if i'm going to get another tattoo or stretch my earlobes, but i'm leaning toward doing the ears this time round. it was a good birthday, and i got a lot of good wishes from friends and such. you are only as old as you feel, so i decided for my birthday to turn 24 ;)

we got a pair of computers (laptops). one is a macbook, the other a dell. i'm hacking up the dell to turn it into a mac. actually it is hopefully going to run both windows and mac. i'm not very good at this kind of thing anymore, so we'll see what happens.

we went to yellow springs the other day and hiked. during we got sort of an idea for a gathering. i think we wanna do a winter solstice gathering in our place. our place is really conducive to that sort of energy and i think whether we have a lot of people or only a few it'll be really cool. haven't really developed any solid plans for that yet, but i'm kinda stoked.

i'm gonna finish messing with installing mac os on this dell for the night- i get a little further on it everyday only to hit another roadblock. i think i'm gonna go in the bedroom and do some sketches before sleep.
