I am panicing about my money troubles- it sucks. I need to find work pronto! Ack!

Last night I watched Girl with a Pearl Earring. It was a cute film. Johannes Vermeer was one of my favorite Dutch painters. In my travels, I’ve seen 13 of his 39 paintings in Amsterdam, Paris, Madrid, and DC. I know my oldest sister probably has seen the movie. I am going to call her tonight and see if she saw it and if she liked it. Quite a few scenes looked just like some of his paintings and it made the movie seem like a Where’s Waldo of Vermeer, but I’m not sure if the director had some embedded paintings in the movie or not. Anyways, its a good movie to watch with someone you love. The plot isn’t too deep but I felt the photorealism was great. I enjoyed how the director accurately showed how life was in 1600s. I’ve been trying to look at those clues like that as of late. Basically, I realize how far we’ve come as a civilization and the degree of specialization that has taken place. I can’t help but wonder how people will survive if they were forced to live back then, or possibly in the future where energy is not plentiful and people are forced to farm themselves. I’d like to take up farming someday simply so that I can take that skill with me to the edges of the earth.

The two renderings are decent. I photoshopped an image of Manhattan (on the left), which makes an interesting looking inner eye. I am rendering another image of NYC, but without the inner lenz. It should be ready in about 4 hours or so. After that I’d like to render an image I snagged of a delta in the Netherlands (its beautiful!). I think the movie was the stimulus to make this next one. It should look nice. Hopefully I’ll have it rendered by tomorrow or so!
