Wargoon Flishe Watch

including the Pome of the Day Project

Monday, April 03, 2006


This is Dr. Hubert Zork, and I have no jazz wisdom to offer you. Instead I have another episode in the life of the fictional animator, one John Akre, and I also have the Pome of the Day Project when we get to the end of this report.

Yesterday was a day of more animation. Akre drew several scenes about the moviemaking process, which Wargoon Flishe is embarking on. He animated several scenes of Wargoon writing his script. Then there was render time on the computer.

It was a rainy day, so it was a good day to stay inside and look out the window and work on animation. Akre also drew, scanned, photoshoppped and animated another chorus, this one praising Wargoon Flishe and his penmanship. Akre continues to use his latest animation revelation, the simple act of slightly moving over the next note card to follow an action. These lessons, he believes, are best learned by running your head against that wall, and learning from experience, and learning from just having to do it.

Here is the Pome.

the hue and cry hit all the air
it was less of a cry than a barking
that what the land needed, most of all
was simply more space for parking

the particular condition of schools or shoes
did not get the folk meadowlarking
but what got their undies in a bunch
was the lack of more space for parking

the ice of the poles may melt away
the oceans may rise above marking
but the state of the people, expressed in one phrase,
"I think we could use some more parking."

Written in sincerity and with fingers,
Dr. Hubert Zork
