I didn't do any cartooning last night. Instead, I stayed up 'way past my bedtime transferring a bunch of Black & White cartoons from VHS to DVD-R.
These were broadcast by the Japanese Cartoon Network and contain lots of silent and early sound era titles. The funny thing is, that lots of the "silent" cartoons were broadcast totally silent! No added music or SFX - just a static-filled dead track!
So, nerd that I am, I burned a CD-R of heavily-edited music tracks culled from some 78 RPM records and added them as a music bed whilst doing the transfers. Next thing I know, it's going on midnight and I have to get up at 5:15 am!
Guess I was "in the zone!"
