    I know this should saved for my journal but I can't help it.

    I just had the best day.

    1) I got tickets to NYC for only $170. $70 off the original price.

    2) A long appointment with a curator lead to a show in October. I will be showing some of my re-photography stuff which I have been dying to get out there.

    3) I go in to pay for school but before heading to the cashier, I stopped off at K. Dickinson's office because she left me a message about having some good news.

    She tells me to sit down.

    Not only did I win two scholarships worth $1000 (that was old news that I posted a while ago), it turns out Mark McCain added an award just now and they are giving it to me retroactively.

    Which means I don't have to meet any grade requirements or do well academically this year. I am guaranteed to have the money.
    Apparently, the head of photography digs my stuff and talked to Mark McCain.

    And how much? I got FULL TUITION: over $4600!!!! And because I am already covered for dental from work, they will be sending me a cheque for $120 in October to be reimbursed for the dental fee when I'm not paying it in the first place!

    I just ripped up the cheque I wrote to the school for $4613.

    Today is a GREAT day. :)

    Glad someone had a good day.

    I'm just finishing up work at one of the shitiest days I've had this summer. Needless to say I should have been out of here two hours ago and I didn't get a lunch break (started at 8:30)

    And I don't see you so it doesn't count.

    The funny thing is Mark McCain is THE Mark McCain. As in, the McCain family that makes smiley fries and frozen juice.

    I have to send them my CV and some documentation of my other work. I do porn and lots of media issues.. This is gonna be fun figuring out which pics I can send them that won't totally offend a corporation.

    Would you mind slapping him on my behalf? Or atleast whichever retard is responsible for their ad campaigns over the years.

    What, you have something against Roberto Alomar?

    i hope sunny doesn't get to do the "catch 'de taste" ads ... the possibilities could be haunting.

    We're still in talks about the penis-shaped fries. We don't know how well it would go with the 8 - 12 market.

    what type of stuff do you shoot? got a website?
  18. MoFo

    MoFo TRIBE Member

    No, I don't have a website with my pics on it. Just an online journal.

    I have yet to find someone to help me develop a website.. Any takers? I want something simple and I am willing to pay for it..
    As long as you have access to a huge scanner or a neg scanner.

    I shoot some jock porn, a little rephotography that talks about Asian mass-media, some self-portrait tableaus and I've always done snap-shot crap that's getting a little old.

    I can do professional stuff too but I choose not to. BORING.

    And right now, I'm really into doing depictions of canonized literary works.. I'm developing that for the future. Or I might do a banal body of work based on Scarborough and its bleakness.

    Right on Sunny that's amazing news! I wish I had my scholarship still, I pissed that away after first year and partying too much.

    As for the website stuff get in touch with Ben. If you need his contact info again let me know. He does that kinda stuff for a living and I'm sure you and him would be able to work together well.

    I'm looking for cheap and simple though.

    No flash, no designy crap.. Just thumbnails and a domain name. Would he charge me an arm and a leg?
  22. juice

    juice TRIBE Member

    If it's that simple and stuff I really doubt it. Send him off an email and let him know what you want. He can take care of everything from getting the registration done to the hosting etc etc.
