Now, Where The Hell Did I Put My Magic Feather?

Anyone tired of Santas's Village?

Here's a nice underbelly shot of the first Dumbo's Flying Elephants ride vehicle. Weird, since it's Dumbo himself. Notice the ears which have hinges at the skull.

These early Dumbos featured 'ear flap' animation which quickly caused more problems then the effect was worth. The sculptor, Chris Muller, was commissioned to fix the problem by creating new casts from a fixed ear Dumbo with no hinges for movement.

Well, it was a nice try anyhow.

Sorry for no posts. Just find myself so exhausted when I get home, the last thing I want to do is sit in front of a computer again. I'll get over it....
Thanks for checking back! I'll start up the routine soon!

Thank God you updated.

Every night as I drive home and make a left on Grandview, I think to myself - "Ahhhhh... Jordan must still be locked away in there, dreaming up new and better posts for us."

Then I rush home to see yet again... Santa's Village!!!!!
