I've really learned to appreciate slapstick comedy as I've gotten older. I think of Charlie Chaplin knocking over a bunch of things or someone running head-on into a wall and I think, "I can relate to that!"

Creative Procrastination

If I ever want to get something done, I just find something else I have to do and then use the energy to "avoid" doing that thing to get the first thing done. I call it "Creative Procrastination". I learned the word procrastination my first year of high school. The teacher would give us a list of words to learn and then test us on it. When I learned the defintion of this word I thought, "That's the perfect word to describe my father!" I didn't even have to think when this test question came up. It was the first time I used "word association" to remember anything.

Looks like autumn is here. I am just working on some new animations-rather revising some old animations. I'm trying to put soundtracks on them. If anybody has good ideas on how to do this let me know. You can see some of the animations inwork on my site-markzman.com. So, John Lennon would have been 69 today. Hard to imagine-"Imagine". Put the new site up on Wednesday.
