That word is so much cooler than “education.” Anyway, the education system in America, and possibly even the whole world, needs a major overhaul.  The problem lies with the tradition of students going to several years of public school, then attending a college or university of some kind.  Apparently (read: according to society), without this […]

“I hope they call me on a mission.” Recently I turned in my papers to serve a full time LDS mission.  This means I registered with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to leave and visit a certain area, assigned by Church authorities, for two years.  During that time I will give service […]

One day a few years ago I had a brilliant idea.  Tired of writing in a disjointed disorganized journal arranged in rough chronologic order but lacking connections between events and missing a basic overview of myself, I decided to revamp the way (or at least one of the ways) I write about my life.  This […]

Memorizing is for computers. I think one of humanity’s goals should be to make computers act more like humans, rather than to make humans act like computers.  Computers are obviously inferior entities which are as subordinate to their creators the humans as we are to God.  We made computers so they could do all the […]

This comic has more meaning for me every day: http://xkcd.com/149/.  I wish it actually worked like that (in real life that is). Recently I installed Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin on my Macbook Pro 8,2.  Needless to say, it’s having a hard time measuring up to Mac OS X.  Nevertheless, I am determined to fix most […]

I never thought this would happen to me. A few days ago, I was enjoying art a little more than I usually do and I got really torn up about the whole Concept Art thing.  I grew really jealous of the artists I was admiring and kept thinking to myself “Wow, that’s amazing.  I’ll never […]

Recently I read a novel for my persuasive writing class at BYU called In Defense of Food: An Eater’s Manifesto (written by Michael Pollan).  While I probably wouldn’t have bought it myself to read just based on the cover, I did find it rather interesting.  The main point of the book is to convince the reader […]

Or why I want to raise the price of gas. There is a simple solution to all of this energy crisis stuff.  Tax fossil fuels.  I’m not supporting a Republican or Democrat platform or even Green or Libertarian anything.  I’m an economist.  No political party, just logic. Unfortunately, this will never happen.  We love our […]

In case you were wondering about any of the links at the top of the page. The first is the link to this blog’s home page.  It will take you to the home page. Same with the About page, although you’ll probably find that one slightly more useful.  It provides basic background of me, which […]

I hate being a connoisseur of what I can’t replicate. I love concept art.  As far as animation goes, which is a pretty cool thing in the first place, I’m interested most in the very beginning and the very end – the visual development and character design and the final rendered pristine high definition movie.
