War is God's way of teaching Americans geography. (quoted by Rick Shankman originally by Ambrose Bierce)
What I gathered from my brief wander into the store told me that this is a vintage store, but its not that typical vintage Victorian Era sort of store, but rather a mix of British Swinging Sixties vintage mixed with oriental vintage (with all the Japanese umbrellas and prints embellished with a bit of Pop art).
What I saw: Vintage ash trays, tables and chairs, coats, blouses, radio.

Through the sunshine and the storm
And my dreams are set in stone
And someday I’ll be who I want to be
For now I’ll wait
For the sun to shine again
And for now I’ll wait
For the rain to pass away
And I’m looking for the brighter days
When all my hurts seem to fade away
I’m looking for the brighter days to come my way
Faces come and faces go
But none seem to look my way
And walls have stood and walls have fallen
But my heart seems to wait
For now I’ll sit at the end of the road
And for now I’ll wait
At the end of the pathway
I’ll see the sun one day shine upon me
I’ll see the sun one day
And watch the nighttime turn to morning
But for now it all comes back around

In order to acquaint himself with his three lead actors, director Alfonso Cuarón had each of them write an essay about their characters, from a first-person point of view. Emma Watson, in true Hermione fashion, went a little overboard and wrote a 16-page essay. Daniel Radcliffe wrote a simple one-page summary, and Rupert Grint never even turned his in.

He brought over roasted pork. We ate it with Coke. Soo good. haha
And then we watched White Stripes - Under Great White Northern Lights. They are good. I love White Stripes because they do crazy but simple things. They don't spend millions to catch attention (as people in the age of Avatar do, spending billions just so people will turn their heads). The White Stripes do simple things. Play music that is outrageous and break rules. Shift beats and tempo whenever they want to.
Just a crazy loud and jarring electric guitar and drums. Thats all the band is made up of. Jack White and his sister. Minimalistic approach, as I have also mentioned in my previous blog about/inspired by It Might Get Loud.
They inspire me so much. About how much can be acheived with just someone you know you can do stuff with. Or just what you can do if you believe in your ideas and do it by finding any way to do it somehow.
1. Finding a right creative partner to do art and stuff is very important. Could be your spouse, brother, sister, cousin. I think someone who talks on the same wavelength, walk on the same light and who is moved by a similar thing that moves you is so important to doing something. Otherwise I find it might be better to do it on your own. (I might be wrong. But so far that's what I understand)
2. Doing the thing is more important than coming up with the idea. It's as simple as looking around you and finding out what you can do with whats around you. I have learnt in my little process of animation for Sirion Diaries the last few days, when on my first night I experimented animating I tried Flash (didn't work), I tried After Effects (I had no idea what to do after I opened it), I tried Corel Painter X (my computer shut down abrubtly because it wasn't strong enough to support a running Corel Painter X, and it shut down about 5 times. Five times of trying to paint, shutting down and restarting with system check [each time!] can really get on your nerve!) and finally I came back to Adobe Photoshop. I even prayed, I am not giving up. There's got to be a way around this. Animation isn't beyond me!
I started doing the age old method of drawing each frame and playing the frames 10 per second on photoshop. It worked. Simple, yes. But I was ecstatic.
I just realised I didn't just think about doing animation. It was a wonderful idea for promotion of Sirion Diaries. But I even did it. Found my own solution to publishing it.
3. Just do it, seems to be the theme, as cheesy as it sounds.
