What are you doing so early in the morning and already checking comments on your computer?

I'm always up early.
Checking messages is the first thing I do in the morning after I take a leak.

Oscar: I like the headgear. I fear it will catch on.

Elliot: Thank you for yet another look into the inner workings of the artist (above).
I enjoyed your animation very much. (Not that my opinion should matter.)

Cheers Jack - very kind.
I'm not sure if I can provide much of an insight into the inner workings of Oscar but I can draw you some diagrams if it helps...

Un hallazgo, las "mitras" decareana y "londoniana".

This is what happens when you don't play vinyl records for a long time. A grotesque form of fungus can grow on the surface of the record. Thank God for progress, as this cannot happen with CDs.
Amusingly, in this instance, if you squint at the pictures, the growth looks almost like a human head! - they remind me of Francis Bacon's stuies for his series "The Screaming Poop".

sorry....that should have been studies; not sure what stuies are.

Nice to hear your ancient voice, Goldner!!!...The hat comes in two styles: mono and stereo.

ojota, que de Caro es groso, capaz si era otra tapa algo decia pero andar con De Caro en el marulo, es para sacarse la tapa del vinilo de la cabeza.

This cannot be a picture of a complete idiot, because only the head is showing!
Boom boom.

Hooray! A completely circular set of comments! The last one is the same as the first!

Oh shit, I spoiled it.

Let's have the twentieth commentary, Jeff, so we can move ahead...By the way, the other day I was having a cuppa in a "resto" near the Ealing Studios and I believe I saw your friend , the animator and syndicalist, "Flakey Foont"...Is he still alive or did I see a ghost?

Hmm. I always thought that Flakey Foont was a character created by some French cartoonist, Monsieur Crumb. So, either you are nuts, or I am. Only one of us is wearing an LP sleeve and that person also thinks he is seeing ghosts, so it is hard to judge. I do have an opinion, but it is your blog so I'll keep it to myself.

The only anarcho-syndicalists I can recall meeting are probably in jail.

Who are you referring to? Or should I simply take note of the date you posted your comment and "move ahead"?

I have posted a rather lame comment at the top of this page just to show I am willing.
