Like every project I undertake, it always takes forever longer than I originally thought to finish.
On January 8th I had 42 shots left to animate. It's January 22nd and I have 20 shots to go. I was hoping to be at least done with the animating by now, but now that I know the post-college-no-girlfriend amount of animation I can churn out on average each night, I can see that I had quite unrealistic goals.
I am indeed no Jack Bauer.
But it is all moot since any sane American (or Australian) knows that the liberal left wing Jew run media doesn't pay much attention to a slow and steady progress report on an animated short, they only care about those first frazzled 100 hours of animation. So let us look back at what I did in those first 100 hours:
-Animated some stuff.
-IMed people way too much while I was supposed to be animating stuff.
-Updated this blog.
-Made several prank calls to the Amalgamated Transit Union Local 689 for which I'm sure to pay dearly.
-Raised the national minimum wage from $5.15 to $7.24.
-Passed a bill broadening the range of stem cell research to encompass even the radical "Stir Fry Cell" experiments in which fetal stem cells are used as a secret ingredient on an upcoming episode of Top Chef.
-And finally, I watched Clerks 2 on loop for several days, and then watched seasons 6 & 4 of The Simpsons (both with and without audio commentary), season 2 of Futurama (again with and without the commentary), season 2 of Curb Your Enthusiasm, several discs of season 2 of Kids in The Hall, the first full fledged season of Aeon Flux, a couple Garth Merenghi's Darkplace episodes, and listened to several This American Life episodes.
Ok, that was stupid and this has taken way too long to update. I'm outta here.
