One week ago marked my 10th anniversary of joining the Clock Crew, so I wanted to make something kind of special this year. What I ended up with isn't what I set out looking for but I hope you enjoy, because I had a lot of fun making this one.

Big thank yous going out to ZombieLincoln for the Clock Day logo, as well as Golden and Slurpee for their contributions to the project. {{{}}}

Happy Clock Day!

Don't waste your time on this crap. Just move on.

OK, so I watched this a bunch of times now. That's how good it is.

I mean, the story is great. It's something I relate to both as an old friend and fellow clock dealing with the balance of real life and love for this site/the CC.

But the reason I love it most is seeing how much you've developed your skills in the near-decade we've known each other. The drawing style itself is just fantastic... your ability to convey emotion with the clock faces is top-notch. The FBF animation (the cig lighting and punching thru P-Cat come to mind) shows such a subtle attention to detail... Just really great job overall.

The Speakonia voices gave me a hearty chuckle. There is something really endearing about this animation. It is like a simple, bespoke rocking chair someone's grandparents might own and it conjures a warm nostalgia. I think the most visually fluent scene is when the protagonist sits down on the ruined couch and lights a cigarette with a sigh and turns on the television and flicks ashes into an old trophy. If I were an actor or a playwright or a writer of any kind, I think I would describe that scene in a simple sentence if I were storyboarding it or blocking it for a play or acting through it. It is a straightforward, evocative scene that shows us more than tells us, which is always the sign of great creativity. You sense a semblance of melancholy, which is not lost on the guitar, which seems to amble on like a small funeral march. Well done. Kudos to RobertClock & to GoldenClock.
