Countdown What?

CoC Page 7 is up HERE

No seriously, there's actually a countdown clock for us seniors that counts down to the second when our thesis is due. Yeah, there's pressure, but as the days wind down I've come to accept falling short on goals only so much as I've realized what I'm willing to, and not willing to compromise.

My time at CCS is almost over and I'm grateful for the distraction of the final workload because leaving this place will probably one of the hardest things I've ever done. I've met a lot of amazing people here and hope to keep in touch with many of them for years to come.

Next, just a quick thought on art books and cross-media. About a month ago I purchased Kristin Hersh's art book for her album Crooked which is beautiful to say the least. The book itself is a collection of essays, photos, and lyrics all related to the album as well as opens access to more material on her website. It's a labor of love and I enjoy seeing different arts coming together to help create a larger, more complete vision.

And finally, luchadore number two:

This past weekend I was at Paint and Pixel in Northhampton, Mass and for a first year little convention it was great! I got to meet a lot of really cool people and to thank Howard Cruse for coming to CCS. If I'm anywhere near the area next year I'd totally go again. Well, unless it's the same weekend as King of Trios again because damnit, I'm determined to go next year.

And one final note, if you're a fan of Weird Al and grew up listening to him like me, check out his Lady Gaga parody "Perform This Way".
