Cert III done. Guys were shaking hands and saying “Nice to have met you” and I was replying “Yeah, see you at forklift training”.
Today during the course, our Trainer pulled out one of those folio things, like an architect would use to take drawings in. I softly said to myself “He’s gonna show us his modelling shots”, and my table mate had a little laugh, then said it out loud to him, and got like half a chuckle out of him. That was my half chuckle. He didn’t even look back at me as if to say “hey it worked”.
Our trainer is an old fat guy. He looks like if a Bulldog became human. He gives us longer breaks because he goes down to smoke too. He’s got the worst smoker’s cough, everytime he does, I think “Just survive til the end of the week”. He’s alright. I would never fuck with him cause he seems to have one of those blokey short fuses. We had to do 1-on-1 private questions today where he wrote down our answers and he was adding more stuff from his book and just asking me, “agreed?”.
Short day tomorrow then we’re done for now and get out Cert III. Then we get to go for our forklift license. I think everyone’s quietly packing shit at the prospect of handling big machinery.
To be continued.
I wanted to send a dumb, random, nonsensical photo to someone on my phone but it turns out my MMS settings are broken. Can’t fix them. Great. No dick pics for anyone.
My mobile phone service provider is a popular energy drink, through the most notoriously bad coverage provider. Literally the butt of comedian’s jokes here. So my energy drink phone plan provider stopped taking on new customers last year, so I got a year’s worth just before the deadline. In October, I’m gonna have to find a new provider. None of that would make sense to ten year old me. Not because of the technological advances and corporations expanding into new markets, I was just kinda retarded as a kid.
Sorry, I’m bored.
You Stole My Artwork: An Open Letter to Anita Sarkeesian
Long Story Short: You stole my art, used it for commercial purposes, and won’t even…
I’m watching the doco ‘I Know That Voice” and it’s interesting enough, and there’s a couple of little bits that are funny and it’s always interesting to see the actors that do the voices. There wasn’t much I didn’t know, even the fact that Tom Hanks’ brother does Woody for stuff other than the movies. The most interesting part is seeing the process some of them go through, mixing impersonations and stuff but I’m dissapointed it doesn’t have Frank Welker, the man most recorded in animation. It’s made by John DiMaggio, who would’ve worked with him on Futurama. The only reason I could see why he’s not, is he is so busy working, he couldn’t do it. He would have some interesting stories. I mean, who gives a shit about how Comic Con relates to the industry. I want to hear more from the guy who does Megatron and little incidental animal noises, including Nibbler’s animal noises and his voice. You could make a documentary with just him. The most underrated voice actor ever.
