I popped in to James Baxter Animation today in Pasadena and heard multiple complaints from the folks there . . . One said the donuts were stale. Another complained they didn't have Aeron chairs. The suffering was unimaginable. Seriously, it wasn't a walkaround at all, but a visit with old friends. The place is buzzing with focused activity, and it was fantastic to just stand there and enjoy the sound of flipping paper. Much as I enjoy CG animation, there is nothing like standing there watching someone skilled create animation on paper as you watch. The environment was invigorating. And I learned the secret to why Seward Street went silent. Tragic, but I'll leave that for Jim to tell.
