Undead Pirate versus Ninja


I should have either done more work on this, or posted it a long time ago.

It was more than a year ago when I got my laser eye surgery. For a few days afterwards my eyes were really sensitive, so I couldn’t really do anything that I would normally spend my time on. I couldn’t read, watch TV, use the computer, or go outside in daylight. So, down in our basement-sweet-basement, I used some Stikfa action figures that my brother Troy gave me and made my first stop-motion animation.

I had meant to touch up the timing or add sound effects on this, but I stopped working on it and never really started again. So it here it is, as done as it’s probably going to get:

I’m not really happy with the quality that YouTube shows it in. It seems more¬†pixel-lated¬†than how I had uploaded it. But I guess that’s the best you can expect for free, huh?

Being Stefani


This weekend Tyler stopped by for a few before his brother’s wedding reception. Aaron was over, too, and we were just sitting around chatting, and then the next thing I knew, I was waking up on the couch several hours later, and they were both gone. I’d fallen asleep in the middle of a conversation.
This surgery and the corresponding drugs make my sleeping habits drastly different. I can’t stay asleep because my leg always hurts, but I can’t stay awake because the drugs make me drowsy. During my first class last week I kept falling asleep, and I couldn’t help it. (When I woke up and asked the guy next to me what was going on, it seemed that no one that had been conscious understood anything either, so I don’t feel too bad about it.)
The point is, of course, that now I know how Stefani feels.
