Anyways, lately I feel like I been slacking too much when it comes to the blog, not posting as much as usual.
Haven't really been feeling in the mood for picture taking this past few weeks. I blame in part that the scaled figures I been looking forward to the most got delayed or don't come out until next year. Then again is not like I have a lack of other figures to pictures of right now either.
Argh, I hate photography slumps, fellow photographers what do you do to get out of a funk? Do just wait it out, do you force through and take photos?
Speaking of photos, I have been mildly interesting in buying a micro 4/3rds camera to complement my Lumix LX5 and D3000. The main reason I have yet to buy a camera in that category is the doubt that perhaps I should save up my money and spend it on a full framed body to expand my lens selection. Then again that's a heavy commitment a least a couple grand if go for something like the D700 and the 105mm lens I want.
Curses why is every singly hobby I have so stupidly expensive?
I also have been distracted by such other mundane things such as my PC crapping out inexplicably for some reason. Somehow Windows managed to die in such a form that I could not even access it in safe mode and none of the repairs options did anything.
Oddly enough I could still access the drive and it's data from an Ubuntu boot disc. In the end I just reformatted and reinstalled Windows. No big deal since my data lies elsewhere in a separate set of hard drives.
On the good side because of this incident I discovered that my thermal sink and paste had not been applied properly. A quick trip for some thermal paste and reapplication later my PC runs cooler and way safer for my hardware. Good thing nothing seemed to be damaged.
Although because of this I considered buying a laptop since I only got my PC as my personal computer. I got my eyes on ultrabooks specifically Samsung's Series 9 ultrabooks but boy are they expensive.
Plus my friends have been coming over to play so that usually takes care of my free time during Saturdays which is usually when I have the time and mood to do my photo shoots. It's all cool though, lately we been playing lots of Dead or Alive 5, bouncy!
Which leads to this latest weekend where I went out with my friends to watch a movie, Looper. Man, that movie pissed me off!
I hate it when movies just hand wave time traveling, didn't like that the movie used both the theory where actions in the past directly affect a predetermined future and where different actions in the past create a new timeline.
The other thing that I found disappointing was the lack of Bruce Willis, his presence in the movie was not as much as I would have hoped. Plus I feel I got cheated out of the premise the trailer offered, a past self trying to outsmart his future self who has complete knowledge of all the actions he will take.
Oh well, not a bad movie, still liked it.
Aha! Now I don't have that many random figma shots to use. At least this way I will be forced to take new pictures for a post next time.
