Free Animation at MonkeyTown
Hey kids- here's info on a show I'm contributing to. It's being organized by the guy that made "Space War" and "Barfight." I'm doing a bit of animation with an animator I met at Ottawa, Sarah Van Den Boom. It's set to some rock-and-roll. I mean, we got "Planet Caravan", the least rocking song Sabbath ever made. Heck. It was still fun.
November 1 Day of the Dead with Black SabbathMany years ago, before the turn of the century, a man named Christy Karacas thought it might serve humanity if he and some 40 other artists all made 1 minute videos for each of the minutes of Black Sabbath's first album. Then. Like an exquisite corpse, Christy would sew the entire slew together and a seamless mash of images and sound would emerge.Many of those artists have gone on to become much better known artists and now this very exquisite video corpse has formed a lustre that eludes description and welcomes your eyeballs and ear drums. This has only been shown a few times.
AND. Get this. In honor of tonight's gathering, an entirely new corpse is being sewn. Black Sabbath's second album will play immediately following the first. And again, 40 some-odd artists will provide 1 minute snips inspired by Ozzy, et al. AND. Admission is Free. There will be cheap beer. The beds will be removed. The sound: loud. And no food will be served in the back room. Get ready!
