Midnite Movies: Jodorowsky

He is the father of midnight movies after all. From the new Anchor Bay box set:

:WARNING: This shows the end of Holy Mountain, which is one of the best ends of a movie in film history. View at your own risk or after you've seen the movie.

A longer interview:

Got me through college

Online Videos by

This film actually and truly garnered me a BFA from the Savannah College of Art and Design in Animation. The following was my actual proposal.

Film Proposal. At best.

A banana begins to scoot across a kitchen counter, my kitchen counter. At some point it catches on fire. It burns for a while and then begins scooting once again. Then the drawers and cabinets fly open. Knives come out and dangle in the air. Banana stops. Everything returns to normal. Banana moves again. The End.

Most of the film will be rotoscoped. The portions where the least amount of action is happening will be the most labor intensive. Sections with lots of action will be simple or simply source video footage. I want the maximal amount of production for the least amount of product.

It will be one take, one shot. The action will be controlled by strings. It will probably be about a minute in length, but depending on how I’m feeling, it could be anywhere up to 15.

The sound will be that of waves gently rolling in. When the banana catches on fire there will be one sound of a seagull. That is all.

The film will be titled: “A Banana Begins to Scoot Across the Counter. At Some Point It Catches On Fire. Drawers and Cabinets Open Up and Things Come Out of Them. Parts of It are Rotoscoped.” Either that or: “Douglas Kinsey, Resulting in The Great Confusion.” But it wont be called that.

The why is because this is no less pointless than anything else being made. I happen to find it much more hilarious than any scenario I could devise involving any combination of characters involved in humorous menial sturggle. As long as large video game studios are producing games like “Uber Soldier” for thousands of dollars, where you assume the role of a resurrected Nazi super-soldier zombie, fighting with the French Resistance; and movie studios are financing “Jurassic Park 4” in which dinosaurs are crossed with humans, as well as robotic components, which costs millions of dollars. I see no shame in producing the dumbest, least entertaining, least interesting, least funny (except to me) film for absolutely no cost. In that regard I’m clearly the victor. It costs me nothing to not accomplish anything …thereby accomplishing something. Thus we go on and on ad nauseum.

My apologies. I recognize that I am misplaced. It is not my intent to be any more of a pain in the ass than necessary. I merely wish to be left to my own devices, and make these stupid, esoteric films. Oh yes, and graduate college will a BFA in Animation.

Germs Decline of the Western Civilization

The Germs were my life changing band. The one that sent me over and into the void; never to find my way out. Before the Germs, it would have been incomprehensible to me that any band could be that horrid and have that much power, and be so good. Not like New York Dolls bad, or Sex Pistols bad. The Germs were a whole 'nother universe of disjointed and furious shit.

I saw the reformed Germs play their first two shows in New York two winters ago, and it was still one of the best shows I've ever seen in my life. Even without Darby that band has a power and a fury that has never really been matched.

If only there were still bands like Suicide instead of bands that just sound like suicide.

Midnite Movies: Dead Kennedys

Dead Kennedys have always been one of my all time favorite bands. These videos were a great find. From a lost recording session. All of these songs eventually ended up on the excellent Plastic Surgery Disasters EP.

Moral Majority

Nazi Punks Fuck Off

Hyperactive Child

To tie in with my post on Smart Now I have dug up some videos of the creatures of my nightmares as further illustration.

The Goliath Bird Eating Spider (chicken eater is supposed to be even larger):

And the Camel Spider, which is surrounded in controversy, but this one is clearly eating a gecko.

Midnite Movies No. 23

And why not. Here's one of my old contributions to the internet. Assembled completely out of clips from the film Cannibal Ferox, which is not a good movie under any circumstances.

Midnite Movies No.22

Blast the past with Question Mark and the Mysterians- 96 Tears


A REAL Nightmare:


Comment code:

From my position of little influence, I urge those who would make decisions to exercise caution before charging wildly into untested areas, particularly on issues concerning private citizens personal information. One of my many fears, and that of many citizens is that the REAL ID act makes us less secure against not only potentially corrupt governmental monitors, but criminals as well. It is my belief that, regardless of laws or regulations, the more information that is available, the less we can control it. Please consider the possible repercussions before hastily requiring all citizens to compromise their own security.

I urge all five of you to voice your opinions on this subject. HERE is a link to the Privacy Coalition which will help you to donate your two cents. But you must act before May 8th, because the doors will be sliding shut, and we will have even less say over where the dust settles.
