State of the Site

I guess since I haven’t posted anything in three months I should probably put something up to let everyone know that I am still active even though it’s more on Instagram and Twitter than anything else. And as I write this, I am getting over a very bad cold that kept me out of work yesterday and my throat isn’t exactly 100 percent but I need to do this now.

Since I last posted (the last One Lone Cat vlog I did) I worked at my first Gem and Mineral show at the Herkimer County Fairgrounds. And then I followed that up two weeks later by working the booth at Herkimer Diamond Days. However, for some odd reason my younger nephew didn’t want to go to Diamond Days even though there was a car show as usual. I didn’t go to the car show so no video footage this year. I did have fun at both. I also took my nephews to the Herkimer County Fair again even though we didn’t do a whole lot this year due to lack of money. I wound up documenting this year’s fair on Instagram where we watched a circus and a Power Wheel demolition derby.

And when my nephews went back to Buffalo, everything slowed down because it’s fall again and as usual nothing happens in this area during the fall season that warrants a video or anything. The weather hasn’t been very good the last couple of months. It’s been rainy and it’s been very cold. However, I did start to renovate my house again. I started painting the living room, got rid of the couch in the living room which also doubled as my bed for the last year and a half and got a new chair. Right now I am in the process of replacing the living room window.

Also toward the end of the summer, I started uploading the remaining One Lone Cat vlogs and other videos that I uploaded exclusively to the site to YouTube because I was hoping to try again to regain my partnership after all the drama earlier in the year. But at the same time, I am sorry to say that One Lone Cat is on permanent hold right now because right now there really isn’t any more I can do with it without sounding repetitive. However, I do have some ideas for projects. For one thing, I’m toying with the idea of starting up the podcast. Then I also got another possible idea and that is to possibly do a sort of fanfiction where I decide to resurrect my Blackcatloner persona that takes place after I decided to transition from Blackcatloner to One Lone Cat and started uploading under my real name. Either way, it ought to be a lot of fun. Just need to get through the holidays first. Hard to believe it’s only two more weeks till Black Friday. It’s like where does the time go?

And I have an update on my weight loss: As of Wednesday I found out that I am now down to 185 pounds which means I lost over 75 pounds since April which is probably one of the biggest accomplishments I have ever done even though I haven’t worked out as much as I should have. Hopefully I can get back into that soon.

And that is pretty much the state of the site as fat as that goes. Keep your eyes peeled because soon I will be having new stuff coming.

Basic Photography Projects

And I figure for today I am going to do another photo blog this time showcasing my projects from my Basic Photography class where I used cameras that produced black and white pictures. Even though I have these photos on my Facebook photo page as well as on my Behance portfolio that I made last semester for my Communication Arts Portfolio, I figure I’d add them here as well. However if you want to check out that particular section of my portfolio, here is the link:

  • So anyway, here you go and enjoy. Hard to believe that my last year at Herkimer College is about to begin next week. 🙂

    Check Out My Portfolio on Behance!

    Hey, everyone. Just stopping by to share something with you today. Throughout this semester at Herkimer College, I have been taking a course called Communication Arts Portfolio where I have to post all of the projects I have done throughout my time in the Communication Arts New Media major. However, since I still have one more year to go in the major (I graduate next year because I changed to New Media from Radio/TV Broadcasting) I also threw in some of my Radio/TV Projects as well including some Audio projects from my Audio Production class and an audio project about how Twilight ruins relationships (which as you all know I later turned into a video.)

    And since I have been encouraged to make the profile public, I will enclose a link to it here: http://behance.net/timhaines

    So I hope you will check it out.
