Sorry peeps, not a lot going on or anything to talk about, except a ripoff from my Blog Brother LIO's most recent post. He posted links to Corky Quackenbush's excellent Mad TV claymation Cops parodies:
I really dig this stuff! Kind of like the forerunner to Robot Chicken, but cruder (visually) - more handmade, and with a much stronger artistic feel to them (especially in terms of lighting and atmosphere). Also the humor is (a little) less sick and twisted, and a lot more creative. I watched these over and over, and I love the darkness and all the practical lights - windows, streetlights, flashlights, police flashers etc, as well as the constantly moving camera. There's something magical about the scene where Gumby is sliding along the street on one foot through pools of darkness, only occasionally passing through a lit area. Also, while Corky's films do have that handmade quality that gives them a certain charm, they're always very elaborately done. It's amazing if you really look at all the props and how good most of them look. I'm guessing he didn't do these completely solo? Probably had assistants to help crank out all the stuff. Anyway, just thought I'd share something so people don't think I fell off the face of the earth!
