okay so alan tudyk is at new orleans comic con
and someone asked him one of his favorite memories from filming firefly and he told the best story from filming “objects in space”
so basically since wash and zoe and most of the crew are locked in their rooms for the episode, all alan had to do was lay in bed for filming
so he got there early so he could sleep on set and he was about to fall asleep when gina came in and went “damn it. looks like we had the same idea. okay, scoot over.” and they napped together
how fucking cute is that
in 11th grade art we had to make mythical creatures with clay but i didn’t want to do that so i made a log and added a lil worm friend on top of it but my teacher got mad and said i had to make it mythical so i added a horn to it and made it a uniworm
this is why art classes in schools suck. That is a bloody amazing log. look at the texture, the colour. The worm is incredible and the teacher is unhappy because it was supposed to be mythical? Who the fuck cares? will the teacher have their pay docked if a student makes a logworm instead of a basilisk???
This furthers the argument that school is about following instructions, not learning. That really is a great sculpture, by the way.
Imagine doing a sculpture on commission and they want some mythical creature. And you give them a worm on a log. Now imagine you’re the commissioner and you wanted to use the sculpture somewhere, even giving the artist a lot of creative freedom. You say, maybe a little disappointed: “That’s not a mythical creature” and the artist just goes ahead and half assedly adds a horn as to say “well look it’s a mythical creature”
School is designed to prepare you always just giving you a shit ton of knowledge. Though I do agree that how art is teached quite sucks because I believe you have to teach people problem solving skills and how to gain knowledge instead of feeding this knowledge to people. It doesn’t give deep understanding of anything. Especially in art school doesn’t make you make connections. At most maybe sometime when you need the information you’ve learned it’ll probably be like ‘ahh I heard about that in school I believe./Google search’.
But on this particular topic oh school is so bad it makes you follow instructions. Well, that just helps you understand how much you can do when you OFFER YOUR SERVICES to people. The other case would be you OFFER YOUR PRODUCTS to people. Though the same thing is in play again. What do people want who give me money. And then there is PERSONAL WORK you can do whatever the shit you want. You sacrifice your OWN RESOURCES. This is your money, ‘your’ time.
Even though I’m basically saying do your worm on a log in your free time I am totally with you guys. Fuck this. Life makes me mad.
If you were making a sculpture on commission for someone, that would be THEIRS. But in art class, whatever you make is YOURS. Plus, when you do commissions you get paid. That’s a pretty good motivator to do whatever the other person wants.
Eh, it’s still an assignment (and in most schools, at that level, it’s in a class you have to choose to take). And, for better or for worse, when you have an assignment, if you don’t follow the directions, you’re going to get punished. You couldn’t, for example, decide for your history class “no, I don’t want to write an essay about the Russian Revolution, I’m gonna go write about Charlemagne instead.” Creative type classes are no different.
