It's been a long time...

Apologies for all the terrible jokes in this post. It's how I get when it's 1:16am.

Gracious me it's been a long time. But never fear! I've been diligently saving up my blog topics to do all at the last minute like the outstanding student I am. HDs please.

But for now, tonight - or should I say this morning - I'm just going to do a bit of an update on what I've been doing in the subject, and what I plan to do for my final assignment.

That's my BenRobot assignment. I got 80% for that one. I was very very pleased. It was a big, big slog to do though. It worries me for this upcoming monstrosity due in three weeks' time.

What genius do I plan to unleash on the internets this time around you ask? Well considering it needs to be "more-or-less ten pages" I was thinking I should pull the vanity site card. I don't have one you see, and because I'm incredibly full of myself I feel like I need one. It's like, the law.

Vanity sites suck. They really, really suck. They're full of pictures of cats and out-of-date stories about what these people do for a living. It's genuinely depressing. Fortunately for you, I don't own a cat and I don't have a job. Smiles all 'round.

Instead my vanity site will be awesome. I'll be making a gallery of the pictures I draw. I also used to take artsy-type photos. I've still got some kicking around from last year, but I don't have any recent work. Still, it all needs to get put on the internet somewhere or else my ego will srivel and die like a leech in a salt-shaker.

I also make videos for the internet and I have another blog that I write in. I'd like to integrate that blog and those videos (dynamically) into my site if I could - although I've got no idea how. Imagine that - Rohan with his own url. People would literally flock there in their dozens.

In terms of style, it would be red, or more accurately maroon. It's the colour that most of my online presences present themselves in, mostly because it's more exciting than blue. Also the site would be heavily populated with chickens and ducks. It's a bit of an in-joke of mine. I covered the chicken and the duck in a previous post back when I was musing on the abortive Assignment #2 GIF image.

I'm envisioning a gallery for comics (with a number of pages), a gallery for photos (with a number of pages), a bio page, a page to host the blog in (if that can work?) and a page to act as a gateway to my other artworks (the Google Mosaic and BenRobot). I have no idea how I could incorporate my YouTube videos without manually cutting and pasting the HTML code each time I make a new one.

I don't want to do that. That's a sure-fire way to make sure I never, ever, update it. Ever.

In other words - if it doesn't dynamically update, I don't want to know about it.

And... the end.
