…It’s TGI Friday: Spamland?

Spamland

Spamland is a unique series of short animation clips from The Brother McLeod that takes the “semi-sensical text found in filter-busting portion of spam emails” and brings it to life. The style reminds me a lot of Don Hertzfeldt’s work, which is definitely a good thing, and the words take on an eerie meaning that is almost poetically beautiful (if it wasn’t for their origin). At least someone is getting some good out of spam.

…It’s Things Thursday: The Animation Show?

The Animation Show Posters

The Animation Show is a collection of very cutting edge animations put together by Mike Judge and Don Hertzfeldt. Mike is the creator of Beavis and Butthead, Office Space and King Of The Hill, and Don created Rejected, an Internet sensation. The show is more of a film festival than a movie, traveling across the country and usually just playing in a single showing per venue, but it’s definitely worth the price of admission. I have seen all three shows, including the latest one this past Tuesday, and it continues to impress me with the variety and the uniqueness of the included animations. If you get a chance, definitely check out a life showing, otherwise, the DVD collections will have to satisfy your desire for off the wall animation. My spoon is too big.
