From the world I was born into!

Look, I know everyone loves the final action sequence with the snake made out of guys, but it's got some really good dance numbers as well. Heck, the one linked above is with the creator of the robot. The one with the robot itself is just mind-numbing.
This reminds me that I need my own robot.
Old enough, but still fun. Drag acts are always funny.

For some reason, I always see "Star Blazers" in my head when this track plays.
But then, I have some massive plots in my head.
It's always sounded like a chase to me. A horrible horrible chase.

Dave looks back fondly at a true cult classic.

I have to say, he's not half bad on the slap-bass.
This won the Animation Grand Jury Prize at the SIFF 2009 Short Film Jury Awards.

And then I remembered this video. I only know about those guys because someone one sent me this very addictive track.
Now, while I'm typing all this, I hear another rhythm and think about typewriters and printers. Even animated printers can be cool.
This also makes me think about tap dance and that sound.
And I also think about the little musical numbers from Zatoichi and the rhythm of daily life.
But honestly, it reminds me of this.
So. Many. Remixes.
BONUS: Here's some Jim Henson and Ken Nordine. I'm feeling kinda Beat tonight.
So I was watching this video and playing the track below and I was very pleased by the results. There's something very William Gibson about it.
Meat Beat Manifesto - "She's Unreal"
(Start the song, then the video. Mute the video.)
I do this: watch videos with the music off and play music. I'm tellin' ya, watch "The Backyardigans" and listen to old skool rap. YOUR LIFE WILL NEVER BE THE SAME.

Remember what Matt said about The Worst Movie Ever Made and then ask yourself why they're religious. Or about trains.
Actually, thinking about it, an ellipsis should only be three dots.

We used to play this game in high-school. Any object will do.

Events for the Superbowl have been insane, due to weather. The band for the above video, Deerhoof, was supposed to play with another group, Yann Tiersen. Yann got stuck in the snow and missed the gig. They still played some music, however.
I'm hoping that these two videos can be of some inspiration: nothing is too hard to do, and make good use of your time.

I have no idea what they're talking about. It could be a deconstructionist argument a la Derrida (and in my mind, it is better if that is the case). I just like the animation.
I am pretty sure the voice for the rabbit is the same talent as the voice for the jackal in Маугли, but I'll have to check on that.
Some of his famous heists...
C'mon gang, sing along!
Aye, yii, yii, yiiii,
I am the Frito Bandito.
I like Frito’s Corn Chips,
I love them I do.
I want Frito’s Corn Chips,
I’ll get them from you.
Aye, yii, yii, yiiii,
Oh, I am the Frito Bandito.
Give me Frito Corn chips
And I’ll be your friend.
The Frito Bandito
You must not offend.
