Graphics Section / Photography studies
« on: October 08, 2009, 03:37:08 PM »
I am thinking of formalising my photography by doing short courses starting next yr because i work full time.
evenings are all i have available...maybe some weekends.

I have checked at mainly City Varsity & Ruth Prowse school of art (i'm based in CT)
The durations and syllabi seem to be the same :
7 - 10 wks

but the costs differ dramatically

CV - R4200
RP - R1600

But I can only find bad reviews for CV on the net...
Can anybody vouch for either of these?
Especially Nat - since you're in the industry.

PS - When you quiz lecturers on industry connections and feeder programs they draw a blank mostly.....sigh

Help.

don't mean to "hate" or derail the thread, but can someone tell me what i'm missing with this dude?

his joints sound very 'poppy' to me.

Yes, his joints are very very "Pop orientated".
That's why you go to Ameen.You go to Ameen when you want a beat that is going to have ma** appeal.Something that is going to get you radio play.

I have told Ameen that I dont like some of his beats and I gave him reasons as well.
But:

Ameen is a trained musician who plays the guitar as well as the piano.He is schooled in sound engineering.
this comes to the fore when you listen to his beats...they have that "crisp" element.
And , (I'm not a producer) but they always have this "full" sound.
Ameen builds beats from scratch.
I LOVE PRODUCERS WHO SAMPLE ( Like Hipe, Ooz and Nyambz who astound me in their ability)
But .....there is also something magical about building a beat entirely from the  foundation up.

that's my five cents.

at trompie...I have said this many times before ..you do good work.
keep it up my brother

And its usually cheaper than other wine they have. Am I right?

Yes.house wine tastes that cheap "Ta**enberg" dry red....that "nagmaal wyn" (ask the catholics)...

Housewine should only be used to ply someone with alcohol whom ,you dislike but, is sponging off you for the day.

Stay away from the Housewine.
I agree with Baldi..you let them pour that shit infront of you!
otherwise ...rather just stick to beer in restaurants and drink wine at home where you can experiment with which one you like.

Ps - dont buy the WINEGUIDES in shops ...the jargon is f***ing confusing.You dont want to have a doctorate just to buy a bottle.
just experiment and see what you like.

a house wine is the restaurant's particular wine.same with the store.
like a "this is OUR shit"
see it as their "generic" offering.

that's my understanding.

aint nothing wrong with 4 cousins rosÍ if you like sweet wines.
also try the ROBERTSONS SWEET RED or their ROSÍ.

If we are talking dry reds then u cant go wrong with either

Spuitsdrift shiraz ( R30 max)

or

Nederburg Baronne (R90 - 120)?

and then the alpha & omega for me is
Constantia Uitsig Cab Merlot blend (maybe max R180 now)

ps - four cousins is cooldrink  ;D

My Roots initiation started with "Things Fall apart"
Good album.
Read the liner notes and see if you can figure out all the subliminal references (numbered for your convenience)

also ...listen to this album with your headphones cranked up loud.
enjoy.

one month notice ..you're gone...nobody notice.

(a poem about renting and moving)
--------------------------------------------------

nomadic movements.
prevent large scale home improvements.
always near to major transit routes.
whether in john drake formals or dickies boots.
innercity travel and daily busk.
does uprooting result in a human husk?
 
interesting paradigm this.
when i call insurers and memberships to change their contact lists.
changing neighbours.
but attitutes stay the same.
the ebb and the flow.
saps nightly siren lullabies always there.
whether you come or you go.
whether you rich or poor.
its the predominant soundfrequency on the air.
metres squared.
no inch is spared.
 
your life in boxes of coardboard.
We circulate the cash between elliots & van lines of stuttafords
we are the renting ma**es , we are the flippin hoard.
we are the ants that gather the crumbs to the nest
and accumulate profits at shareholders behest.
we never rest.
but never with stability blest.
compound interest the ghost that press on the chest.
 
we are no better than the breed of bedouin bedded down in tents
no better than the refugee-like sediment in temporary unrest settlements
never resting
steal your levis from the line quicker than your blinking.
soon as the lease agreement has dried from your hasty inking.
wake up your neighbours screaming ...and what the heck was i thinking.

-----
"Witness in silence"
, I chronicle untold tales of
modern human violence.

even what we call good hiphop has that element of crap in it.

look at the built for cuban linx thread.even one of our favourite MC's ghostface spout's some of the most vulgar rhymes.

even common in kid cudi's "made her say" track says some very ignorant stuff.but let's be candid and say that the media in general has set PEOPLE back. ::)

When I was in grade 2 (That time it was still called sub - b) and we heard "prophets of the city" were coming to our school.
I thought they were a white rock group.

i was blown away when i saw ramone spin on his head , jazzmo beatbox.

and then I held their vinyl.
it was love.
