I need to just buy a new ripper...

I'm sure Jack could help you with finding a new ripper...

*rimshot*
*groans from around the room*

How does one go about making an MV, anyway? I've done it with home video footage, but not with film footage...

It's harder to explain than to do. I have a Windows Movie Maker that does most of the work, although it's lousy compared to the system that scooby has. Mine has to be a few years behind everyone else. Mine doesn't have an of the cool graphics. And it doesn't look as professional.

*groaning still over the joke* Abby....

*shakes her head in shame* I'm sorry. I couldn't help it. There was something in People magazine recently about there being a new Jack the Ripper, and I couldn't resist. Sorrysorrysorrysorrysorry...

*makes a face at WMM* I personally prefure iMovie on a Mac. I made my fifteen minute Senior Video - ALL BY MYSELF *tries not to tear her hair out* - on iMovie. I have no idea if the format is the same, but I'm looking forward to trying it when I get my Mac book.

See, I don't have a Mac. I'd love to get this computer upgraded since I has to drives in it and all the bells and whistles, but it's three years old and some of the programs need to be updated. The WMM takes up so much of the CPU that it'll freeeze the entire mainframe up sometimes. It's frustrating.
sean_montgomery: Clark - oops...sean_montgomery on January 3rd, 2007 12:43 am (UTC)
I don't have a Mac either, but the movie system I know is iMovie, and it only comes with Macs. It's just something I trust since I've got experience with it. Our computer, though, is slower than week old Molasses going uphill in January. Seriously. You have no idea how long it takes to upload things sometimes.
Loiskalalanekent on January 3rd, 2007 12:56 am (UTC)
All of that works fine here, it's only that one program. But I won't give it up because I know how to use it. I'm so old-fashioned sometimes.
sean_montgomery: Me-amusedsean_montgomery on January 3rd, 2007 12:59 am (UTC)
Nothing wrong with being a little old fashioned. I'm old fashioned myself, actually.

You know all those romantic parts on OtL, or TD? I wrote those without personal experience...
Loiskalalanekent on January 3rd, 2007 01:11 am (UTC)
Nothing wrong with that. You should see so of the stuff I wrote before I gained any experience in that arena. I think you handled it beautifully.
sean_montgomery: Me-amusedsean_montgomery on January 3rd, 2007 01:20 am (UTC)
Nothing wrong with that.

I know there's nothing wrong with it. I'm actually kinda proud of it (can you say dateless existance?). It just makes writing it a little more difficult.

I think you handled it beautifully.

Well, I've got an overactive imagination... *grinblush*
Loiskalalanekent on January 3rd, 2007 01:22 am (UTC)
*LOL* You should have seen me at your age. *Laughs harder*
sean_montgomery: Me-amusedsean_montgomery on January 3rd, 2007 01:27 am (UTC)
I'm not much younger than you!

*stops and thinks about it, counts on her fingers, laughs*

Okay, you're THAT much older than me. But you've got me all curious, now. Just how bad were you, Lois? Hmm?
Loiskalalanekent on January 3rd, 2007 01:49 am (UTC)
I was a very curious kid. Didn't help that my mom kept us on a pretty tight leash. She wasn't mean or anything, but grew up in a household that was *very* Old School. I did my share of drinking and sneaking out. Experimenting.

Fooled around more than anything else, but nothing that would endanger me. I was pretty smart. I had alot of girlfriends who were more gutsy than I was and heard them tell tales. I also went to an art school, so you just had to know the right people. Tried a couple of things. Didn't do anything for me. Stopped it all cold.

But the first person I was with... *LOL* I think they're still recovering, eventhough it was a serious relationship. See, I was also writing a Anne Rice-styled Dark fantasy novel at the time and you know hormones... :D

*snark* Or in Caroline's case, it would be an album of Brandon pics...

*LOL, blushes* I can't believe I wrote that out...
sean_montgomery: Me-amusedsean_montgomery on January 3rd, 2007 02:01 am (UTC)
*blinks at the above, then giggles*

I can't believe you did either...

Yeah... hormones... that was the biggest reason I didn't date period in high school/junior high. You're so out-of-whack at that stage of life, you know? I figured it was more worth me discovering who I was and my grades than getting involved with boys.

When you graduate and get into your twenties, though... heck, I think I'm kinda cool. What's the hold-up? : D

Everything along the lines of the lunch of OtL? All imagination. I'm just happy to know people thought it was realistic enough.

Yes, there are some *VERY* intelligent young adults out there, folks. You're brilliant, Abby. I wish I had figured out that dating wasn't a big deal. Wouldn't go too far, but annoyed with myself for some of what I did. It sucks to want to be liked, though. That was alot of my problem. Then I woke up. :D

That's a little that got put into my Lois. But she decided after the first time, she'd wait until she was older. It was one of those "You've got to be kidding me" situations. Besides, she was too busy and living with Perry, too. She grew up really quick.

*flushes* Don't think that meant I didn't want to be liked! Aw, heck, I went through MAJOR emotional issues back then... borderline suicidal (didn't think I could be, did you?). I went through three years of my life thinking people hated me, so that kinda helped in the 'what's the point?' thought process for dating. :D If no one liked me back, what was the point?

There WAS this guy though... I had this major crush on him for several years and was convinced that when I grew up, he was going to like me. Well, I went through this suicidal phase, and he ended up starting a secret relationship with this girl two years older than him... it was just a big mess. When I realized that it wasn't 'meant to be' (or whatever), I just decided that staying out of the game was better than getting hurt.

It definitly means I have NO CLUE whatsoever when it comes to being romantically involved, but I'd rather have that than mistakes on my record. Besides, creating the romantic drama, to me, is similar to creating dramatic tension - you've just got to understand where your characters are and what they're in.
