I do love anthropomorphic worlds with charming animals going about their lives in human like surroundings. But, they always seem to be full of species related puns. Things are 'ruff' at times for dogs, while a cat's day is often 'purr-fect'. These two guys are always friendly. They never get 'snappy' with each other.
Somethings are quite similar, yet so very different. I don't suppose that a creepy little guy like Gollum could really take out a Jedi Master like Yoda, but hey.
I thought Eowyn was a pretty cool character in LOTR , but then I started to wonder how hard it would be for any guy to live up to the standard that she had already set.
I'm not sure where this came from. There's a bit of Octodad, Gary Larson and even Scarfolk Council as influences. I do like the look on the goldfish's face. He's all like, 'Mr Squidman, you're here to save me.'
After watching the first season of Stranger Things, I was thinking about how human's tend to rationalise everything. If I saw a weird creatures face emerging from the wall, would I think it was an entity from another dimension, or would I look for some more reasonable explanation? Honestly, I don't know. Honestly, I hope I never find the answer to that question.
I love old sci-fi movies and TV. The Twilight Zone was great, and the punchline to this episode was both terrifying and hilarious. Mostly hilarious. I thought, 'if you're going to have a double meaning for "to serve mankind", why not take it all the way.'
Sometimes, organisations like the Department of Education make decisions that they honestly believe is in the best interest of everyone. But sometimes, these decisions are so horribly misguided that you just have to wonder, 'what the heck where they thinking?'
I had some neighbours. And those neighbours were terrible. No, they didn't carry an axe around like some b-grade horror movie antagonist. They just played their music so incredibly loud all the time, that I wanted to carry an axe around like some b-grade horror movie antagonist.
I love Alfred Hitchcock films, and I had an idea for an animated short film about a cat that witnessed a dog committing a murder. I never got around to doing it- maybe I will one day - but in the meantime, I had to get the idea out in some form.
Like many, I had mixed emotions about Disney buying the rights to the Star Wars franchise. It was great that there was a new commitment to producing new films, but there was a tiny hidden fear that some of what would come out of it was just wrong - very, very wrong.
