Best Quote of the Week ~ [9/23/12]

Wandering Star by Audrey Kawasaki

An Exercise in R

          The round man with his red tie, rosy cheeks, and rotund belly, runs, I kid, rumbles down the street. He makes a right turn on Rosalind Ave., slips and rolls down the hill. On his riotous fall, he rams into a registered nurse, passes rowdy bunch of punks, and crashes into a record store owned by retired Randy Regal. Red Hot Chili Peppers play on the radio as the two men share a rustic looks. The ringing of the store bell returns owners glance to the store’s entrance revealing a rigid looking old lady with eyes like rubies. She commands respect and when she has it she tells them a riddle. The one who remarks correctly gets a great reward. The plump one goes to response, but the owner throws a recorder at him, rather rude of him, and gives his own answer. The woman reports that his answer was indeed correct and gives his 300 rubles. Roland, the fat man, roars with laughter. Rejoicing and unhurt, he walks out—the broken window made he rocketed through earlier.

          I don't know if I'll continue this, but if I do you will find it here.

Virtual Gaia Network Is Taking Some Down Time

          Hey, everyone. Virtual Gaia Network (including Virtual Gaia, Virtual Gaia Games, and Virtual Gaia Projects) is going to be taking some down time while I take care of my duties at college. College should be my top priority and I really need to focus on that. So for the time Virtual Gaia Network won't be update as frequently. I usually at least update Virtual Gaia weekly with Best Quote of the Week, but as of right now everything not school related is going to take a back seat for away. Thanks for reading. See you next time.

Elevator Music Video Update 8 ~ [9/17/12]

          First thing first. The Script for the first episode has been updated. I'm nearly finished. Also, I spent the week making a sort of guide as to what will need to be done with this Script once I finish. There is going to be some revising. Along with that I made a Thematic Outline--what I want to accomplish with each episode of the season story and theme wise.

          Next, I'm taking a bit of a break. What I mean by this is that I really need to focus on school and I can't spent part everyday trying to find time to write everyday... or worrying about that. I'm not stopping but the schedule is going to be more lax. This also means I'm not going to be doing these video updates every week. I was thinking about doing it on a monthly based, but we will see for now. As of right now I have the next update scheduled for the end of October. I need to focus my self on school.

          Anyway the Script is right below. Please take a look and comment. See you next time.

A Girl And A Tiny Portal Need Our Help

Meet Fern. She needs our help.
          A Tiny Portal is a wonderful short film project that needs our help to get fund. The story is about a shy girl named Fern who has a lot of trouble connecting with people. She tries and tries, but her efforts never go right. However, she receives a mysterious gift from her elderly neighbors that allow her to travel through secret portals. Will this gift be Fern's way to reach out to the world around her? Maybe? But there's a problem. Fern's story will never be completed without our help. 

          Stephanie Gumpel is the director and writer of this short film. She has brought together amazing talent to help ensure this will be highly successful and enjoyable. The crew crew includes composer Perrin Cloutier of the band Beirut, Ann Benson from NBC's hit Betty White's Off Their Rockers, Richard Riehle who has been in over 200 film including the The Fugitive, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, and classic Office Space, as well as others.

          This project is currently listed on Kickstarter trying to reach it's goal of $12,500. $7,044 of that has already been pledged. It has 5 more days to reach its goal. Be apart of this great film project and get cool rewards for your pledge. Please help this film and Fern connect with the world! For more information on the film visit their Kickstarter Page.

          For those of you who have never used Kickstarter before this is how it works. You pledge a certain dollar amount to a project and if that project makes its goal by the set time frame it gets funded by us. Also, you'll get rewards from the project creators based on your pledge amount. If the project doesn't reach its goal then all the pledges are returned to the backers, the project fall through for now, and the backer don't receive any rewards. For more details visit
