Dearest Students,

Hell’s Bells.

Can you DIG it?

I knew that you could!

Extra Credit. Do drawings from this. Watch it and then hit the spacebar and give yourself three minutes to draw the picture in non photo blue. Draw not just the character but everything in the frame. The ground. The walls. The flames! You can see so much more about how pictures work when you draw everything in the frame.  Hell’s Bells!  I love the drawing in this cartoon.

Day Ten: Crispin Hellion Glover - “Ben”

The 2003 remake of the 1971 film Willard, about a young man’s strange and powerful connection with rats, is something of a fascinating mess. Helmed by X-Files alum Glen Morgan and driven by an incredible performance by none other than Crispin Glover (in a rare lead role), the movie was severely screwed by New Line Cinema’s discomfort with it. Demanding numerous re-shoots and re-cuts to make the film more palatable for a mass audience, the studio drove the final nail in its coffin when they ordered it be cleaned up and and given a happy ending to achieve a PG-13 rating. Gone were Willard’s ultimate comeuppance and R. Lee Ermey’s masterful use of vulgarity in the role of Willard’s evil boss, leaving the movie a wishy-washy shell of what it could have been.

What retained its artistic integrity, though, is the music video shot to promote the film. Glover himself (returning to a music career mostly abandoned after his fascinating 1989 album The Big Problem ≠ The Solution. The Solution = Let It Be) recorded a cover of Michael Jackson’s “Ben” (a song written as the title track for the sequel to the original Willard) and directed the accompanying video art film, enlisting R.Lee Ermey to play several characters. Like Crispin Glover himself, it’s perplexing, fascinating, and beautiful.

The Willard DVD is worth tracking down, not just for the movie itself, but because it features a great documentary and commentary that are brutally honest about the movie’s flaws, as well as this video and its own breathless Crispin Glover commentary.

And, as long as we’re talking Crispin Glover nightmare fuel music videos, here’s Clowny Clown Clown.

Werewolf credits vs. real songs

I have an obsession with the medley at the end of Werewolf. It has come back with a vengeance since I watched “The Americans” and found out “Tusk" is a pretty cool song.

is this the rise of the brave tangled frozen dragons

no actually it’s even better than that
this is a still from a 1990 television special entitled, “cartoon all-stars to the rescue,” which, literally, was absolutely nothing but half an hour of beloved children’s cartoon characters attempting to get that kid in the blue to stop smoking pot.
it opens with a brief clip of george h.w. bush and barbara bush sitting in the oval office, petting their dog. the president of the united states looks into the camera and says, “some of your favourite cartoon characters will help you understand how drugs and alcohol can ruin your life.”
and that brief clip alone would be worth the price of admission but then we get into the actual story, which begins with a teenage boy smashing his kid sister’s piggy bank to buy pot. while alvin and the chipmunks look on in abject terror. and winnie the pooh exclaims, “oh my!” and then the kid runs off to buy pot in an alley and bugs bunny appears out of nowhere dressed as a cop, picks a joint off the pavement, and launches into an anti-drug spiel.
it’s actually really not the kind of thing that can be put into words so here’s the full half-hour video, knock yourself out
