This seems to happen whenever I get sick. Two weeks ago, it was poison ivy. The itching had me feeling intermittently crappy and I took that as an excuse to take a break from doing clerkish Sacred Scribe work. This usually means that I "splurge" on making artwork, normally a guilty pleasure, because the income it derives is LONG-TERM and that doesn't pay the limo lease bills, kow'm sa'in'? In this case I decided to celebrate my poison ivy by monkeying with Artmatics, the Final Cut Pro effects gizmos, Apple Soundtrack (for music) and old Bryce files that had never been animated. Thanks to THE GRIPTION CLENCH I have new gear that makes animation of old 3D scenes possible.
Anyway I set out to do gloorping Dobbsheads set to gloorping original music. I started with a few random gloorping Dobbsheads and some random ravey beats. Then I kind of went back and forth between the music program and the animation programs, a couple or three times, adding to the animation to match the music and adding to the music to match the animation until the whole mess was suitably crammed with eye and ear candy, all directed entirely at mindless hymnotic Adoration of The Dobbshead.
