The Cheese Triangles arc (Pt. 5)

Jack rushes to warn his pal Jim of the dangers of « abusing cheese-triangles by snacking before bed – but alas, it would have been better if he hadn’t said anything to him at all! For Jim, the temptation to glimpse his future – no matter how plastic, day-glo and horrid it might be – proves to be too great…


I’m A-Glow!

As I said on the official Facebook Page yesterday, I’ve had a few medical distractions lately, so I’m especially pleased to have met my self-imposed Wednesday deadline again. IT’S A BIT OF A RUSH-JOB, QUALITY WISE – but it’ll have to do for now. Sorry 🙁

I’m sitting in the Clinic at the moment awaiting word on my SPECT/MRI scan for my back troubles, and I’m having to keep my distance from other people – especially pregnant women and children – for 24 hours, due to the radioactive substance that they injected into me! I don’t look like Mark Pillows’ Nuclear Man character in Superman 4 – or even the Ready Brek kids, glowing while on their way to school, but I’ll consider my daily breakfast of Ready Brek in the 1970s as good preparation, as I contemplate my next 24 hours as a walking Radioactive Bomb!

Someone’s been eating his Ready Brek! Mark Pillows, as Nuclear Man, in Superman IV (I accidentally typed ‘Unclear Man’ at first. Hmmm. That gives me an idea…)



Back to a Job in Animation?

I’ve recently been thinking about going back into the animation industry. It’s absolutely booming here in Ireland, with scores of home-grown companies operating and producing award nominated and award winning films and to shows. I’m talking about Emmys, BAFTAs and Oscars!

Web Design really wasn’t good for me over most of the last 17 years or so, and besides, everyone’s at it now and jobs are scarce. It’s also becoming more and more horribly technical and annoying! It was a waste of my rarer abilities. Oh, and there’s a race-to-the-bottom going on in that space.

So we’ll see. I’m going to start meeting some animation people and discover what I might have to offer them. Maybe I can get back to doing a job that’s actually creative and fun, and that uses my favourite skills. It’d be quite a thing, if I was to come full-circle, back to animation, after 20 odd years.

20 very odd years.

I hope you enjoy today’s episode, gang.
