Wargoon Flishe Watch

including the Pome of the Day Project

Saturday, April 22, 2006


This is Dr. Hubert Zork with another report on the animation actualities of the fictional animator John Akre.

Yesterday he only managed to animate one short scene. This is the scene where Barleyparsons comes across the idea for her company of Partial slogans for Partial times over the big sleeping body of Wargoon Flishe. It struck the animator as he was working on this scene that this might be a possible scene for cutting, for he will have to make some cuts to get his movie at the timing he wants. It also ties up the Barleyparsons character, and would leave her hanging without it. But it also lacks some lead up scenes that are in the book that might give the scene more context.

He went ahead and animated it anyway. He also recorded the narration for the eighth and last section of the script. He has just a few weeks of animation left to go, and then he plans to go back to the beginning and redo some earlier scenes.

Now it is the time for the Pome of the Day Project.

there are more animals than we
who live inside our house
a cat, and then another cat, some fish
but not a mouse

the cats can be our greatest friends
they like us to be home
their world is within our four walls
within those walls they roam

they ask us to be fed at dawn
in evening and at night
they eat as fast as they can eat
and sometimes they will fight

but mostly they curl up upon
our bed, the couch, the floor
and there they sleep until they hear
us coming thru the door

and then they greet us with their voice
and walk a circling walk
what stories they could tell of home
if we could read their talk

Written in sincerity and with fingers,
Dr. Hubert Zork
