Quote of the Day

In our age there is no such thing as 'keeping out of politics.' All issues are political issues, and politics itself is a mass of lies, evasions, folly, hatred and schizophrenia.-- George Orwell

“I would rather be a swineherd at Amagerbro and be understood by the swine than be a poet and be misunderstood by people.” ― Søren Kierkegaard, Either/Or: A Fragment of Life

Sordid Tale

For those unfamiliar with, new to, or fuzzy about the details of what happened, here is the entire sad, sordid story of the rise and fall of Will Vinton Studios.

In 1977, I was introduced to Vinton at his Northwest Portland studio. There it was, the Oscar statue Vinton and Bob Gardiner won for Closed Mondays, the short Claymation film that started it all.

Vinton pulled the Oscar down and let me fondle it before placing it back on the shelf behind his desk.

The article is 3-years old but worth a read.
