Bouncing Ball and This Weekend's Progress

Flash, I've decided, is a lot less temperamental than Maya ever was.

As for what I did this ridiculously long weekend, I was quite a bit preoccupied and couldn't accomplish very much in terms of this class, as I was taking care of some rubbish outside of town.

I did, however, unearth a rather cheesy Finals Week song I'd been writing back when I was toting Finals Week as a holiday...which I'm still doing, by the way. It was set to the tune of "Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire" and some of the lyrics are a little whacked, but I would totally animate something to my own voice singing that. It went something like this...

Files rendering for three days straight,
Blue screens flicker into sight,
Zombielike students with red, bloodshot eyes
Will find it hard to sleep tonight.

They know exams are on their way,
And they'll all scramble, rush, and try to get an A.
And their professors sigh, because they know
That those assignments were assigned weeks ago.

Everybody knows that finals week is really tough.
Although it's obvious, it's true.
And though you'll be pulling all nighters for days...
Do your homework.
Try to finish.
Don't forget when it's due.


EDIT: Inserted Suitable Second Line 7h30 EST, 22.01.09

  1. You should make the song your final animation for this class!

  2. Yeah, that's exactly what I was thinking too. Only I can't quite think of what to plug into that second line, or what I had originally put there.
