There would have been a video here but the Blogger wouldn't upload the video right and Vimeo was also having some problems.. Throwaway montage this week, for sure.

Rudy Ray Moore - R.I.P.

Rudy Ray Moore passed away early this morning. Special thanks to Peabody to bringing it to our attention. Rudy Ray Moore was responsible for such films as Dolemite and The Human Tornado. He also gave us Beaster, which was a glorious holiday we celebrated in Chicago a few years back. Next time you're out, pour a little bit of Old English out for him or pimp out your finest lady. RIP Rudy.

Throwback Sundays - 10/19/08

This was an attempt at a stop-animation introduction for the Newskool video. Originally the name for the Newskool video - "The Newskool Web" was going to be cancelled, so we had to figure out another introduction-type clip to use for the beginning of the video to go with the new title of the video. We seriously spent hours on this and the end result was absolutely horrible.. but it's funny to look back at this for a laugh or two.

A few of us are off to Bethlehem for a quick little Saturday exploration.. Points of interest so far are the Comfort Inn, Home Base Skateshop and a few steel mills along the way. Expect a few flicks and clips when we get back from our trip on Saturday night.
