Monkey Bus (A sort of poem thing)

Monkey Bus

Just checking everyone still has their tickets. No excuses here or there, not there or anywhere. If you've lost it down the sofa, lounge, or by gopher. Common be dog, or the wind, it's evil claws and swift fin. There is no way to claim, your ticket fell down the drain, because in the end we all know you are liars.
Spot one, spot them all, a scarf and a black cape, a mole and a shower cap. A liar here, there, every place we turn. Without a ticket there is no entrance, no eyes to read, no heart to love our foul foul words of wisdom.
Without a ticket you stand, bland, in a puddle of shame on the sidewalk, pavement, lane, crying in pain, you've not been framed, you've just been thick. As a brick, with no tick on my clipboard, no seat for your butt. No space for your cigarettes, you've just got bad luck. No shoulder by the window, no sunny outside, no mother of baby, no runaway bride. No fat man sitting, no magician with a box. Your eyes will be just fixed, on the door as it locks.
With no ticket you'll just stand here, alone and forgotten. You'll be in the rain, cold and feeling all rotten.
I got no reason, no feeling to care, you've got no pity from anyone, not anywhere. Your mum ironed your ticket, your fire ate it up, your monkey shredded it or you drank it in your favourite cup.
There is no inside, no warm safety now, you needs to keep your head on straight fool. Don't be a smelly cow. Look where you are going, write down some lists, Even when it is snowing, concentrate on your fists.
Don't run here, there playing cricket, vomiting chunks of laze. Just remember your prickly ticket! And avoid that really complicated maze.

Now run away foul monster, you've made a fool of yourself. Go sit in a dustbin aching, dribbling in the filth. There is no place for you here, you were never tall. And call up the next failure, this lines getting small.

Trouble in the dusty town of Squelchford

Twas a hairy night in Squelchford and a time of year worthy of celebration. Mr. Blechqwaff and Mrs. Michepogs were both planting mystical red seeds into the dirty clumps of the haunted mine. In three mighty years four glowing royal flowers will grow from the rippled soil of the mines floors.
These flowers will ooze a beautiful perfume that will cure the people of Squelchford of the mass disease, 'The Dreaded Cold'. This disease has jumped from one victim to another over the last week, bringing four deaths to the people.
"Fred Wilbert Henry the Flurge was a young and very brave man. A son and mother and father and uncle to at least seven fat children of the north. "
These words were spoken at one of the victim's funerals of pain and suffering.

"ME? WHY I AM MIGHTY WARRIOR Peke Sheif. We come in peace little people."
The two magical warriors stared down at the small fat children of Fred Wilbert.
One child said this, "In the future, what is to happen to our people? Do the magical medicine flowers finally bring their mega power upon Squelchford?"
Peke smiled, "THEY DO."
"And are we all saved from death?"
Benson stepped in, "I CAN Answer that one young child."
"Go ahead then."
"Everyones gunna die of the Cold. Sorry."
The fat children alll began to cry.
"Yeah.. the flowers take three years to bring forth their medicine. But cold kills everyone in like, a week. So its like..."
Peke burst in, "Da maths just don't add up chakow?"
"OH yeah."
"No yeah."
"Potaa... sorry Benson. I got a bit carried away there."
"That is ok Peke, after all, its the kids that are going to die."
"I say it is because they eat so much, makes the Cold want to eat up their lunches... which is in their stomachs, you know?"
"Peke, the kids are standing right there. Watch what you say..."
"Oh sorry Benson, sometimes you are pretty smart when it comes to my social disability."
"I know, deal with it. But seriously those kids are pretty obese."
"Sorry. It's getting late. Should we head back to our own time?"
"Yeah sure, 1995?"
"Yep. So long Squelchford."

Animations this Week and

THERE ARE VIDEOS IN THIS POST. So if you cannot see them but you realise i am talking about them. I have not got insane... or anything. Unless of course you have hurt my feelings in anyway. I'm looking at you!!! My tears are like rain buckets.. or rain. Buckets of rain i mean. No.. well they are not like huge buckets, they are not buckets, the tears are filling buckets, like rain does. You know? The videos are just invisible to you. Not deliberately. I'm not excluding you from anything. It just means you are reading this from an email address. For great animation vids head over to.. here... http://dailybloog.blogspot.com

Here are some brilliant animations we found online recently.

This is Out of Sight.
An amazing and very cute story about a little girl's adventure through the big world, with a twist.

I'm not exactly sure what this is. But i do know the animation is by Studio 4°C (The makers of Tekkonkinkreet).

If anyone can tell me where this stuff is from, or if it is just a music video let me know!

Adam Phillips

It has been a while since The Daily Crumb has talked about anything other than it's own production. But now production is ending Adam Phillips is back on the Daily list.

Here is working two projects now.
Most of you will know he is making the BITEY game, Dashkin. A running game. It is going to be an excellent experience.
I remember someone who had played it said it was like 'being inside the brackenwood movie'.

You can watch the gameplay preview video here. And head over to Facebook to check out the screenies

Also Adam is working on a music video for musician, Cilla Jane.
According to Bitey.com she came across his film. Little Foot, and wanted some very pretty grass in her next music video.
I did watch one of her videos, i believe she was trying to be a cat. Also there was an old man in a dress. Lets hope Adam's involves such great features.

Here are some screenshots from bitey.com

Once again that is Adam Phillips at Bitey.com

Rainbow Animation

Cliff and the End of the Rainbow animation kind of finished today.
Not completely as I may want to add tiny things or my assistant director may want something changed or added.

But scene animation was completed today.
I think there are 7 scenes all together.
The final scene, as it was quite intense with the effects needed to be splitted into three parts.

Here is a screeny from the last scene i animated
