Too many people find stuff on the internet and think "It's already public, I can use it without asking." This irks me no end. I have had people take my photographs off my Flickr site and try to pass them off as their own. Which in and of itself is pathetic, as I am not that good and only have a point n shoot. I wouldn't ask for money, but I would ask for attribution. Anyone who puts thier own creative energy into something deserves at least that. This is NOT an anti piracy rant. It is a give the fuckers thier due rant. If there is a picture or song or something on the internet I want to use and they specifically say No Attribution Necessary, I still do it. They deserve to have thier name out there.
Also, if I don't, it implies that it is my work and that is just plain wrong. As I do a lot of my stuff myself, it would be very easy to take credit by implication. As much as I want to be praised for my work (eventually), I want it to be for MY work, not someone else's. I want what I do to count. And if someone just likes the part that isn't mine, then that is invalid. It is valid for the person who did the work, not for me. I want people to look at my stuff and say 'That's cool" and know that I did it. Or that me and a team did it together. And that the team get as much credit as I do.
So, to sum up, it may be a few days before I actually get it done, and I am frustrated. I still have lots of time, but it still frustrates me.
I am going in to work for a few hours here in a bit. I missed all of my hours yesterday so I need to go in and get stuff done. When I get back, if I feel up to it, I will see what I can get recorded. I have a feeling it may have to wait until tomorrow, though. It is a 1/2 mile walk, and my leg bruise goes all the way to the bone.
It could have been worse. I could have broken my leg. I could have hit my face just a leeetle bit higher and done some really serious damage and maybe lost my eyesight. I could have gotten a concussion. Instead of pulling pieces of my teeth out of my lip it could have been a whole tooth or a bunch of teeth. I need to be thankful it is only as bad as it is, and it is only delaying me a little. And that I don't need major reconstructive surgery.
Will post again when I get a chance to finish it.
