no animation

There was no animation activity yesterday by the fictional animator Akre, the subject of my research. He had a day of long hours at his usual job and did not have the energy or the time to devote to his animation activities.

As usual in these days of animationlessness, I will again explore the animation past of my subject.

The third clay-animated Hibling film was called "The Terrorists." He made this film when he was in 9th grade. This was the late 70's, and terrorists were all the rage, just as they are today.

In this film, a group of small Hiblings, that look a little like the Prims, are a terrorist cell that threatens the peace of the peaple. The Hiblings like Fatty and Mr. Offal have to defeat them. The terrorist cave is burned out and so the day is saved.

There is a terrorist massacre scene that the young fictional Akre based roughly on the Odessa steps sequence of Potemkin as the terrorists stride thru a crowd shooting their toothpick guns.

The Terrorists includes the pyrotechnic skills of Akre's friend Nick, who set fire to a stash of gunpowder in the terrorist cave to burn them out at the stunning conclusion.

Anyway, that is enough yawn-inducing animation talk. Now is the time for the Pome of the Day Project.

there is no pome today
i have nothing to say

no pome to stir the soul
no pome new or old

i have nothing to lend
to you, my pome friend

no pome to surprise
you with its truth or lies

no pome to leave a stain
on pome-addled brain

no pome you can read
as if it were a seed

to pome like a flash
to bat your small eyelash

no pome big or small
there is no pome at all

Written in sincerity and with fingers,
Dr. Hubert Zork
