Slumberland

It is thought that 140 years ago today, Winsor McKay was born. An incredible artist, he is also pretty much the father of film animation. The following is his first film, completed in 1910. The colors you see were painted on the frames by McKay. This film was the result of a gentleman's bet that he could not produce 4000 drawings in a month. The last two minutes you will see are the results of his efforts. Astonishing and incredibly inspiring.

There are times when music affects me in such a way that I physically hurt, damaged by the emotion of the piece. The pain is double because I still feel deep down that I am incapable of producing such a thing myself. Trying to prove myself wrong is a constant exercise in frustration...

No A/C...

Hopefully Monday will see this turn around, but for now, I am hot as hell and not feeling too great...
