…In actuality, I have very little…“free” time, that is… But I thought I take a break from the monotony, that is known as “my life” and check up on you guys… So…how’s everybody’s summer been?…Really?! That’s GREAT! Okay… Now on to more “pressing” issues… Like “why” have I decided to take the summer “off” from this web site? (and “technically”, I haven’t…I’ve written some stuff…just not as “often” – so get over yourselves) The truth is, I’ve been VERY busy this summer. I have been working my “regular” job. (Yes, someone actually “employs” me…they give me paychecks and everything) Some of you may also remember that I am working on the next “Great American Novel” (which is a complete fabrication) I’m “actually” still working on writing a couple “spec scripts” for sit-coms in hopes that I can find a “sucker”…I mean, a “suitor”. I really haven’t been paying much attention to the “NEWS” lately… It is awfully depressing. Sure, I have my thoughts on what is going on “globally”, but this summer, I thought I’d also take a break from the “B.S.” Don’t worry…it’s not “going” anywhere… and just as soon as I decide you people “need” to hear from me on some “hot button issues”, I’ll make sure you are furnished with all the information you need. … But back to “ME”… that’s why we’re all here, right? Well, this summer, in addition to writing some really funny crap that no one will probably ever see on “Network Television” (or even TBS) I have been trying to hone my “animation” skills. I have shared with those of you that read this little “gem”, quite a number of my “GoAnimate” videos. I trust that they have all been to your liking. In addition to that, however, I have taken it upon myself to try and learn “ACTUAL” animation. So I purchased the software and have been trying to do my best to learn how to use it. I’ll be honest, it is a LOT more difficult than one might think. I am an EXCELLENT artist (yes, I know…I hear that a lot) But when it comes to bringing those drawings to “LIFE”?…well…it ain’t easy. But it’s what I want to “do” when I grow up. (I think I can fit it in before I die) So, that’s what I’m working on…ALL in an effort to enlighten, entertain and inform… If any of you have been following this for the last few years, you “know” that’s what I’m all about. …That being said, I have really enjoyed using “GoAnimate” to compliment my arsenal of witty weaponry. It has aided me in learning how to use the animation software that I am tinkering around with. I want anyone that watches to realize there is “still” a lot of effort involved in making the “GoAnimate” stuff. I still have to “build” the characters, the scenes, the story, etc. … But “one” interesting thing has shaken out while using this website as a creative catalyst… “Douglass – The Renegade Vigilante Butt Bomber” He was kind of a joke meant for my kids. But he’s enjoyed a modest amount of success, of late…People seem to “dig” him. So for those of you with mobile devices or those who don’t ever watch the “Giddy Vids” in my sidebar, HERE is a peek at “Douglass” in action: … so… “funny”, right?… Anyway, for those of you who want to see what else I’ve been working on in my “free time” (cough, cough) I invite you to check out some of my other videos on my YouTube channel. http://www.youtube.com/user/danof89 The “channel” is really just another little “experiment” designed to try to get my NAME “out there”… By the way… my name is “Dan”… nice to meet you… I encourage anyone reading or watching to come back often and check on my “progress” (or lack thereof) I will resume my “duties as wordsmith” again soon… I’ve still got a lot on my mind… Thanks for checking in…I’ll be back, when I have a little more “free time”… ‘Til Then – Go Figg’r! Peace Out – Later
