Wargoon Flishe Watch

including the Pome of the Day Project

Saturday, March 25, 2006


Once again yesterday there was more animation in the life of our fictional animator hero, Akre. He took some time to make animation of Wargoon Flishe's first great media adventure, the commercial for the Target Dead. This is Dr. Hubert Zork with such news.

The animator made a logo that, under the powers of animation, turned a smile into a target. He recycled one of the gun props from an earlier episode and ensured that Hardleyheavers was in the background and grinding his teeth. He put Wargoon Flishe inside of a TV set from one of the old Life magazines from which he has drawn collage material.

Last fall he picked up several old Life, Look and Saturday Evening Post magazines from the late sixties at a church rummage sale up the block and has used scans from those mags for various purposes in his animated novel as feature.

He enjoys this animation. It makes him happy. It relaxes him and gives him a fictional sense of accomplishment. And so he shall try to fit in bits of animation time in between his busy work and volunteer responsibilities.

Enough of that talk. Now it is time, as promised, for the Pome of the Day Project.

snow is the memory
of all winter

cigarette butts, candy wrapper
crap from dog behind
burger bag, beer can,
plastic of the broken kind

snowdirt-stained lawn furniture
parsley green but flat pancake
snow mountains have receeded
drift turned to puddle lake

the snowmelt drips away
and i forget

Written in sincerity and with fingers,
Dr. Hubert Zork
