Best Quote of the Week ~ [2/24/13]

          "Until the image of the black man in the mind of the black man has been changed, there will always be delinquency, parental and juvenile. The idea is not to change the attitude of the white man to the black man but to change the attitude of the black man to himself."
~Malcolm X

Best Quote of the Week ~ [2/10/13]

Disney's Paperman And The Tech Behind It

          I found this great Disney short today and thought I'd share it with everyone. It's an amazing blend of traditional 2D animation and 3D animation. Also, a good story in classic Disney fashion. Watch it below.

Paperman, Disney’s Oscar-nominated short film from Shon on Vimeo.

          I thought I'd also share the behind the scenes video of some of the amazing tech that went in to making this impressive short.

Virtual Gaia Network Is Going On Break

          Virtual Gaia Network is going on hiatus for awhile, while I catch up on school. Best Quotes of the Week will be up this Sunday, but won't return until the hiatus is over. Elevator Music's next Update will not go up this month. I'm sorry, guys, but I am really stretched thin right now. It's doesn't mean all that stuff is done or that a post won't find its way to the site, but I really need to focus on school right now. Also, there are a few other things I want to try and learn, but can't do them while I'm doing 50 other miscellaneous things. Anyway, hopefully it won't be long. Bye for now.

Best Quote of the Week ~ [2/3/13]

Not the correct John Wesley, but it is the best John Wesley photo.

          "Do all the good you can. By all the means you can. In all the ways you can. In all the places you can. At all the times you can. To all the people you can. As long as ever you can."
~John Wesley

This is the correct John Wesley.
Also, none of the aforementioned John Wesleyes have anything to do with the John Wesley Bob Dylan named this album after. Like the first John Wesley, this one does end his name in Harding, though unlike the First and the album, he loses the 'G' (Hardin). 

The Music:

As I Went Out One Morning by Bob Dylan from John Wesley Harding

Sing Your Own Song by John Wesley Harding from The Sound Of His Own Voice
