Yup. Can’t seem to get away from it, even if I try.
Oh man. James Newton Howard. Why do you do this to me? Unbelievable score for an unbelievable movie. I wish Shyamalan still made ones like this.
Wow. Just wow. Such a perfectly written score. Yes, I know it’s Pokémon, but it doesn’t negate the fact that it’s a wonderful piece of work. Besides, I grew up watching shows like this.
James Newton Howard - The Hands of Fate (Part 2)
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. James Newton Howard is my hero when it comes to music. This video might just be my number one favourite on YouTube. The screenplay mixed with the incredibly emotional score is just pure bliss.
Woah, dude. Woah.
Yup. Can’t seem to get away from it, even if I try.
Seriously. Bummer. I rarely go to my action Tumblr page, only the dashboard. But wow, the type is super small.
Anyone who knows me knows I like small type, but the point size in this theme is ridiculous. I even had to look closely to make sure I was reading the correct line.
Question is, do I keep it, or change it? Hmmmmm.
My God. So simple. So beautiful.
I said it before, and I will say it again. Amongst all the music I listen to, nothing will come close to competing with movie scores.
Ps. I hope to one day meet James Newton Howard and shake his hand.
This was the tagline on an advertisement for a post-secondary school—of which I cannot remember the name of. It was for a design oriented program. The original tagline read “Design More Than Just Art.” I decided to turn it around with a simple period.
EDIT: Just saw the ad again. There is an apple between the words “Design” and “More”. Not sure if that was intended as a period. If so, my post is void.
So I just started my first day at work today and decided to write down a little play-by-play of how the day went. But before that, I will describe my job.
I work as a junior designer at the Canadian Management Centre. I found out about this job from my previous internship at Scott Thornley + Company, so I am truly grateful to them. I am on a 6 month contract with possibility of full time employment afterwards.
Okay, enough of that. On to the day. It started really strange. I woke up at 6am, an hour before my alarm went off. Not really sure why, but it gave me an hour or so to go on the good ol’ internet. When time came, I showered and was off to work. I was perfectly on time, and from my estimate, would have arrived at work with 10-15 minutes to spare. But then of course, the TTC popped in at the perfect time.
I was stuck on the train due to a delay at Castle Frank station. Apparently there was a medical emergency which the paramedics had to attend. So I lost my 10 minutes there. But we eventually started moving to many people’s delight. We kept going until I reached St. George. I was waiting for the southbound train to head to Osgoode station when all of a sudden a train reversed into the station. It was very confusing and it kept honking so everyone was a little freaked out. But then a big announcement came on through the speakers saying this train is running like normal, so we all got on. Of course this lead to another delay. Apparently something failed with some sort of signal on the tracks and the trains had to move extra slow to avoid any dangerous situations. Worst.
I was stuck again, but thankfully not that long this time. I finally reached work after the TTC fiasco, and was late by 12 minutes. Great. Wonderful way to start the first day. Luckily, and surprisingly, nothing came of it. I was taken to my station, introduced to everyone—which was/is super hard to remember and keep up with—and shown my schedule for the day. So, like any good worker, I got right to it. And by that, I mean kind of just sitting there trying to figure out what to do. But then came lunch.
Ah lunch. So delicious. I was taken to this great sushi place called Fune, and it was scrumptious. There’s a little tradition here that when a new member joins the marketing sector, the whole team (Kelley, Natalie, Andre, Mai, Sandy, and now myself) would go out for lunch. We ordered a good amount of food and ate until most of us felt sleepy. Andre paid for the whole thing too. What a guy.
After lunch we came back, and sat down to start working again. Since then I’ve been sitting here working on some edits to a project. All in all, a good first day. My co-workers seem fantastic and super nice. The working environment is great. There is a big, diverse mix of people to work with in terms of race, gender, and age. There is free food and drinks usually within a few feet away. I also get this special privilege of using the swimming pool, hot tub, and gym at the Hilton at will. I guess it’s one of the perks of working here. Awesome.
Also, I believe I forgot to mention the marketing team which I am apart of now. There is Kelley who is one of the designers. Natalie who does project management. I share the room with them two, and they seem really nice. There is also Mai, who is our manager. She is super sweet and really easy going. Then there is Andre, who is the VP of marketing. Again, super nice guy and seems very laid back.
Phew, that was long.
They do, oh so very much.
Here’s hoping I can engage in more.
