having a hut is good
yay - materialism can b good
but sometimes i feel way too invaded
and that people get rococo as u said
(i probably would have murdered herzog on the set of fitzcaroldo)* *
i was also a 'big' professional - may go back too but...
cats i don't like
cause they wake me up at 4 in the morning for no fuckin reason
dogs are my thing
synch can b relative
and the levels of time/energy consumption depend on the project to b sure
i gave up pizza but never will chocolate
veganism can b really scarry
i am just vegetarian
i saw a great tshirt the other day
vagitarian - funny
what made it 'better' was a hot guy was wearing it
i just think getting all warped out on how it is 'supposed' 2 b done
can suck the life out of a project
and having to look alot at ur footage within the sync process can bare some
