Yes friends, I imagine by now most of you know this, but at long last Madame Tutli-Putli is available here in the good ol US of A!!! There was a bit of a mad scramble when it was released in Canada and to International Customers but not here.... I think quite a few US citizens frantically sought out and befriended quite a few Canadians (I know I did!!). Little did we suspect the wait would be so short!
Breaking news.... you can watch all of this year's Oscar nominated shorts online at Ticklebooth.com... that includes Madame Tutli-Putli AND Peter and the Wolf!
And my eyeballs are sweating waiting for this one!!! Finally a DVD by Bruce Bickford, released as he intended... not another Zappa concert thing with inserts from Bickford's films chopped up and rehashed, or cutaway shots used in the Monster Road documentary. Very soon we'll be able to order Prometheus' Garden (the clip above is from it) through the Brighteye Pictures site. Brett Ingram isn't saying much about it on his blog, but I subscribed to the newsletter for info a while back, and if I remember correcty the release date is set for Feb 2nd (or was it the 1st?). Not sure, but anyway, check the link I posted above.... there should be some official announcement soon! And meanwhile, to whet our Bickford appetite, feast your head on all the Bickford goodness posted at Youtube!!!
