My teammate for the final project in my filmmaking class just ditched me for a group that was already three without her, leaving me in a group of two with an agreeable but uninteresting partner whose accent and mumble at times makes him hard to understand. And to think I picked her partially for thinking she was reliable. I think I should’ve been more explicit annoyed I was at her when she told me, cuz now I worry it’ll just boil up. But maybe I’m just subconsciously mad because I’d accidentally written myself into a romance with her, which, while not my original intention, rapidly became an object of anticipation. I knew I should’ve let this possibility get to my head. Whatever. I’ll just direct a bunch of theater students and leave it at that. Still, the biggest reason I wanted to work with is that she’s a friend, and I like being around her. Now my project will be less me interact with people and more me directing my tools. And who knows, maybe the teacher will say my script’s unworkable. Maybe we’ll just merge with another group of two we’re friends with. Then again, I clashed a lot with one of them when he directed our last project at an abysmal pace, but he won’t be directing this time. However, merging would likely mean sacrificing my script and directing. I put a lot of time writing and rewriting it, and I love directing and haven’t had the chance to do it in ages. Sigh I guess I’ll just do what I usually do in the face of my life not going great and retreat inwards into my shell and my stories. And to think things were going so well for me. This just really killed my mood, probably because it also caused it. Maybe I’ll bust out the game Florence I bought in case of such situations instead of my usual short films to put behind glass saying “BREAK GLASS IN CASE OF DEPRESSION”. I really hate my life.

UPDATE: Having thought about it some more, it really isn’t the romance getting to me. I just feel like I’m being casually abandoned. I feel like my friendship isn’t valued, and I don’t think she realizes how much that hurt me.

SECOND UPDATE: Feeling much better today. Small things like that can sometimes trigger the emergence of my deeper issues, but I’m fine now. Quite pleased and surprised that it only took one day to feel better.

The dreaded article 13 has been passed

Based on a quick Google, they exempted memes and GIFs under parody, so it’s not that bad. That said, I’m not aware of the other deatails, so maybe it’s actually still terrible. Was Brexit about the UK trying to save its memes?

Though what I’m truly worried about, is if A). The upload filters will be all fucked up and accidentally fuck up the internet beyond repair, and B) It will ban copyrighted images from IMDB and Wikipedia (though maybe not wikipedia as it has the ‘fair use’ liscence

Someone on the forums PM’d me, asking for links to Q2 (Thunderclap)'s Fall of the Jedi prequel fanedits. I pointed him to info and explained using JDownloader with MEGA. Then he says he can’t download from MEGA and would I please upload the edits to Google Drive.

So I was planning on shooting my film tomorrow, and the rough cut is due next Tuesday, but I can’t for the life of me find an actress. None of this would’ve happened if my partner hadn’t ditched me.

Also, isn’t that Banana Splits reboot basically Five Nights at Freddy’s?

You know how when your driving a car and all the traffic stops, and you learn there has been an accident and you can’t move until they pull the wrecked cars off the road.
That’s how my life feels right now.
I can’t move forward, I can’t move backward.
can’t play the radio or run the AC because I might run out of gas and batteries.

Think of it like this: at least you weren’t the one who got in a car wreck.

I was harassed by this ice junkie dude in the bus yesterday. I thought that his expletive filled muttering were him talking to a friend on the phone but then he stood up and yelled at me to “fuck off” despite me having not done anything. He swung his backpack at me a couple times but I wasn’t hurt. He looked to be in his mid twenties but he had cold sores all over his face and was missing several teeth. I decided to get off the bus at the nearest stop and as I stood up to do so he thought I was going to attack him so I had to tell him that wasn’t my intention. As I walked off the bus he shouted at me to “go back to England.” I’ve never stepped foot in the UK all my life.

Crazy and racist, charming man.

I actually had to look that term up. Yikes.

Was the bus driver aware this guy was threatening you?

I think so, but he couldn’t exactly do much since he was driving at the time. He didn’t say anything, but neither did anyone else. I feel like they were either scared of him like I was (there were families and everything on the bus, with small children who they probably didn’t want falling in harms way) or they didn’t see what was going on exactly, maybe they thought I had goaded the dude into yelling at me.

I have a bad feeling about this.

I feel like every thing that I like in this world is dying out.
It looks like COPPA is going to kill YouTube in 2020.
Thankfully I never made any videos of my own. But most of what I watch may go away. But I am scared for the internet as a hole.
Its getting harder and harder to find people online that have the same interests as me. Its almost as bad as real life.
You ether do what you like alone.
Or do stuff you hate with others.

In the words of marvin the robot from hitchhiker’s guide to the galaxy.

^ I’m not up to up speed on COPPA - what are they planning to do in 2020 that they have not done so far mate?
 

As for people sharing the same interests online - have you checked the various reddits, facebook & twitter groups for like-minded people? (older forums are great too - though some are not easily found via online search engines these days; sometimes it is not the forum themselves - but links and sources of info provided within)

In real life, try easing people into your interest - introduce the subject butlet them find their own way and make their own thoughts - and talk about it with them… hopefully it may become more of an interest to both them and you.

I find that answer vague and unconvincing.

I feel so lonely having never had a girlfriend. At my age most people are sexually active while I’ve never even kissed someone. It’s not like I just want a relationship to not feel left out, it’s that I want one anyways and everyone else having one makes it feel so much worse. I don’t get involved with incel communities since they’re a bunch of misogynistic fatalists (to varying degrees, but even r/incelswithouthate has a pinned thread for members who killed themselves, so I don’t feel at ease there). I always try to have a positive outlook on life, and while I do what I can to focus on other things for the time being, after a while you can’t help but let your thoughts drift back. It’s not really something you can indefinitely ignore. I’m alone and it hurts.

Sure, I have friends, but I’ve recently been coming to terms with how finite all these relationships are. At least online relationship are potentially permanent. A Discord server I founded on this principle is approaching a year of age, and while it did become pretty barren in some parts, it’s relatively thriving now, with many of the original members still present. 19 members is pretty good. That said, I’m still doing 90% of the posting, but maybe I just post too much, doing so several times a day.

Meanwhile I’ve done fuck all to further my film career. What can I say? It’s hard to develop and become invested in project that’s limited to a shoestring budget. I’m used to writing fantasy, so you can see how this is difficult.

I can empathize. All too well.
