sock 4 lops. An idea explosion factory of bits of dreams
and bits of not-dreams. I've been adding small bits to
this for months and now i'm sick of doing it. I think this
one is quite long. I think my attention span is short.
Actually I know that. If you want music by Lackluster (who's tracks are featured in this ones) then go to http://lackluster.bandcamp.com

Fantastic

This was ac tually my favourite of all your cartoons, and I've seen all of them. It was hypnotic. I was thoroughly entertained throughout by your unique style. Can't wait for the next, you're basically the only author I look on NG for to see if there's another submission.

I liked pulch

You know people don't give you justice, they tend to look at your work and judge it without seeing the metaphors and what your trying to portray. But I don't think you need to clarify more, it seems to weed out the less promising folks the way that you do it. But on a better note, I've always really enjoyed your work and can't wait till the next one.

Another Firth cartoon is a sight for rabid eyes

David Firth has done it again with an excellent satirical commentary that jabs playfully at the "progress" of science and technology.

Neville gets the whites fantastically white using a comotose man's pancreas; and in order to stop an apparent pedophile problem, science professor Dr. Jelskraft invents, among other things, a computer that 'thinks' like a pedophile.

The film seems to be inadvertantly targeting the beaurocratic science sects of the world, but at the same time, 'Socklops' puts the weird back in the weird, unexpectedly and interchangably, with an evolved, transcendent dream-like, Carrolian scenario. (the narrator discovers he can shrink himself by pushing on his left hip bone.)

Thematically genius and crafted wonderfully, this piece soars kite-high.

"Why would a man of science turn against his audience like that?"

Thought Provoking, Firth

Inanimate objects becoming aware of themselves. A machine that makes anything you want, smokable (I want that) and a man who shrinks so far down into a particle of something or another, and discovers the entire universe is contained inside. Very though provoking.

I thought you might have been losing your magic with Pulch (which later grew on me anyway) but this is some of your best material yet.

"Why would a man of science laugh at his audience?"

The character telling the story is awesome. I want to see more of that guy.
