All that lives on earth or in the heavens is bound to pass away: but forever will abide thy Lord’s Self, full of majesty and glory. (Quran 55:26-27)
Hey orang muda, jangan sangka matimu tua,
Hey orang tua, jangan sangka tak mati langsung. (Urdu sikit)
-Ustaz Haslin Baharim
Kematian itu sama seperti ujian mengejut.
Jadualnya tidak akan pernah diberitahu.
Kerana jika diberitahu,
ramai orang yang akan kabut untuk lulus ujian.
Kematian bukanlah ujian yang menguji satu atau dua bahagian,
ia menguji kehidupanmu sahabat.
This photo set was initially planned to be a live feed from yesterday’s event - the “Unterländer Biertage”. In plain English, “Lowlands beer days”, right here around the corner in a sports hall next to the Zurich airport. Oh and sporty it was, no doubt. From too much sport (of course, what) I gave up almost immediately the idea to drink and write at the same time. Not that I’d sample ‘em beers that fast, but there was way too much chatting and all that and it would have been so very impolite of me right? Apologies accepted. Because I’m an orderly person I ordered only samplers and here they are, the producers in the order of tasting: Gutknecht’s Hammer-Bier (from Rümlang, next village that is), St. Laurentius Craft Beer (Bülach, again like twenty miles away), Brauerei Hardwald (that’s a few miles south in Wallisellen), Braumanufaktur Schlachthuus (Lufingen, guess where - ten miles east) and finally UHB Üelus Homebrew (oh no, Burgdorf is 100km from here!). Mostly local brewers, presenting their tasty inebriants to a moderately huge thirsty crowd. Not everything was to my taste, yet ironically what I disliked most was the best as seen from a teammate so whatever, there was obviously something for everybody. My favorites were the Saison Abricot from Hammer, a tasty fruity smooth elixir, then the Hopfengold from St. Laurentius, light and hoppy and refreshing and just a hint sour, then a malty thick dried fruits extract called Balthasar from Hardwald and finally the American Wit of UHB Üelus, spicy and full-bodied and just yum. Had I have more time to ummm deepen my knowledge.. I think I definitely should go more often to these tasting events.
(Sorry if my english is wrong) Hey Max! (I mean... Mr. Atoms xD). Do you know any way where I can see every storyboard from each episode/short/movie of B&M/ECC/UHB? I would find them very useful. Thanks anyway.
Back when Billy & Mandy was being made, I used to walk everywhere with a six hundred page storyboard under my arm. Technology soon changed that, and I was instead walking around with a USB drive in my pocket and weaksauce, noodly arms. Unfortunately, the change didn’t come soon enough to save Billy & Mandy storyboards.
Those were done almost entirely on paper, and before everyone had easy access to digital media everything physical was shipped off to a place called “Iron Mountain” when the production ended. Think of it as a sort of “Raiders of the Lost Ark Warehouse” for film and media.
Somewhere in that place is (probably) every old workprint, storyboard, piece of development art, title card, and little bit of TV and movie trivia you’ve ever wanted to see. But until someone decides to archive it all and put it online, it’s just sitting in a box in a pile of salt.
I’ve been really bad about keeping “stuff” from the stuff I’ve worked on, but I think I have a few boards somewhere. I’ll look into it!
