    My mom's got them young genes, but considering I've already been mistaken for her husband (and she's 59), I'm pretty sure I'm aging more like my dad.

    Try putting your donger in a dishwasher and see how that comes out.

    My dad looks more and more like Saddam Hussein with each passing year.

    I am definitely starting to feel a little pressure to accomplish more. I wouldn't say I feel old but I am feeling some pressure. 23 in a few months.

    hahahaha MKR....

    Maybe I don't feel "old" so much as "wow the past year fucking flew by"

    Also I'm one year closer to saggy boobs and not being able to hike up a mountain :(

    I want to be mobile for as long as possible, I think once it's hard to get around I'll be super :C

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    So you know how employers like to know how much time you spent on particular pieces of artwork?

    If I'm putting something in my portfolio, and I don't remember how much time I put into it...should I say "I don't know" and leave that out...or should i put in the amount of time I think it would've taken me to do? It's a recent piece so however long it took me wouldn't be too far off to how fast I could do it now.

    I'd just feel weird leaving that out if it's asked for.

    Okay, no. You're not allowed to do that. You of all people should not be feeling pressure to accomplish more, because it makes me feel like maybe I should be feeling pressure. Especially at 23. I kinda thought you were older than me.

    EDIT: And ND, I would say to go with the estimate. If you're reasonably sure it'd have taken you that long, I can't see it being dishonest or anything.

    I haven't had too many people ask how long I spent on something, but I don't talk to many video game art directors.

    I am getting better with each passing year.

    If you guys are mad about getting older, you are probably doing it wrong.

    ND: I've never had anyone at an interview ask me how much time i spent on artwork. Also i don't see it commonly listed on most portfolios.

    Edit: I turned 25 this year. Not so bad.

    High five, I was just about to say this. I definitely look older than I did when I was 21, and I think it's awesome. I'm also a lot smarter than I was back then and it's totally worth the couple wrinkles I've got. Try aging with grace, you whiny babies!

    Whenever I start feeling old I just go look up some article by bonafide crazy motherfucker Ray Kurzweil, and remind myself each passing year is just one step closer to having an ultrabrain and immortal robotic testicles.

    Yeah, my grandmother has Alzheimers, and it's kind of sad to see this incredibly smart and accomplished woman have to deal with it......although physically, she'd go swimming every other day until she was like 83...I'm striving for a similar goal when I'm older. :)

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    And thanks for the replies, guys...I think I'll just leave it out, then, unless it's been specifically asked for (some places I've seen ask for time spent on each piece).

    I feel old when I talk to kids about GI Joe and they look at me like I'm making it up. Other than that, I feel (and apparently look) 18.

    Edit: I look back and I'm happy with my life. 26 is gonna rock!

    I've never seen "time spent on each piece" is required part of portfolio submission other than at schools that want to see some gestures or whatever. That seems more like a 'casually going through your portfolio at an on-site interview' kind of question; when I get that I usually say something equally casual like "a couple hours" or "maybe half an hour?" or "a couple days", not a precise measurement like "25 hours, 10 minutes and 34 seconds. This figure does not include bathroom breaks."

    I wouldn't worry about it.

    Unfortunately, we were never promised robesticles. But I swear, if I don't have an immortal cyber brain by 2040, I am going to piss on Kurzweil's grave.

    ...Man, the singularity's not going to happen in our lifetime- if it ever happens at all.

    We haven't cured cancer or AIDS or any number of horrible serious diseases yet, but we suffer such a glut of development in the field of wang research that you can't watch television for over 3 minutes without being forced to watch an innuendo-laden wink-wink nudge-nudge commercial about how grandpa got his willy back in action and you really think that robotesticles aren't going to be right at the forefront of the transhuman movement?

    You don't understand human motivation at all, do you?

    Obviously you don't check your spam folder very often.

    Also I hear tell that women and some men have had access to mechadongers for quite some time now, with features you can't get on a normal donger. Motorized, dishwasher-safe. Try putting your donger in a dishwasher and see how that comes out.

    True mechadongers are going to be way easier to do than true mechabrains.

    True Mechadonger and the Mechabrains would be an excellent name for a band. [/Dave Berry]

    So, there's this Chinese place near where I am. Chinese food, run by Chinese people, Chinese restaurant ambiance.

    But if you don't want Chinese, you can apparently order Italian food instead. It's not Chinese/Italian fusion, there's just a completely different menu. Do I dare ever order off the Italian menu? It just seems so...random.

    (It's especially funny that the Italian menu let's you order a "Chinese Chicken Salad", but the Chinese menu doesn't.)
