I've had a quick look at some numbers, and I'm not going to be able to buy that plane ticket to When Worlds Collide next month (when it will be cheaper), and certainly not if I want to buy stock to sell for Ottawa ComicCon. I'm very sad about it, as I am really eager to go.
I'm still determined, and so I'm looking into short term loans from various places.
I will get there. I will.
I'm just sad that I can't really afford it without considerable, and probably high interest rated, help.
In happier news, though, I might get to go to Ad Astra as well this year. I've been offered a ride down, and to split a hotel and petrol costs with three of the loveliest writerly folk I know. I'm thinking that I will do it, but I have to go over finances again.
So, not is all lost, I guess.
I will get to When Worlds Collide this year. I will.
In other news, with my latest painting all done, I'm taking a short break from painting stuff for my YouTube channel. I meant to have a video up by now for that channel, but I forgot to export the paintings, so I'll do that today, and hopefully have that video up soon. I have plans for a slightly more artistic bent to my channel than whatever mess I was doing previously.
I was a video editing fiend last night, fixing and re-uploading ep 04 of Nights at the Round Table, where we discuss The Day of the Triffids. I also edited and uploaded a bloopers video for the same programme, as it was a holiday, and I thought we'd celebrate it. Ep 05, in which we discuss the film K-Pax, was also edited and uploaded, but scheduled to air next Monday.
I edited, uploaded and scheduled all footage from my SMC Akwardly Plays segment. We're up to episode 21, but that won't be airing until mid-March. I did the same for CoOpted. There are fourteen episodes of it. To give you some idea of that that means, We've only aired three thus far.
That's a whole of of editing, and I didn't even get done all that I wanted to. I have two more episodes of Nights at the Round Table to edit together. Those, however, take roughly four hours an episode to edit, and then another couple to export, so it's going to be a little while yet. Maybe this weekend, if I have the time.
That was a tangent.
Instead of painting this morning, I'll be hunting for appropriate music for the YouTube video I'm planning to upload soon.
And since that is very time consuming, I'm headed off to do that now.
