fly baby fly

I got 5 words: milfs milfs and more milfs.

Study After Cruel Intentions short film

The second half is really a mess but overall I can't complain. It's sick. The direction is hypnotic. The music is Simian Mobile Disco. The director is Saam Farahmand. I know not much about Saam other than that he's so in right now. You might know him from any Klaxons music video, or this (RIP McQueen). Can't say I'm a huge fan but I do love that he's "pitching to Hollywood a biopic about Tom Cruise. I want Tom to play himself."

Personally my favorite of his work is this video done for Simian Mobile Disco--compare/contrast:

"Hustler" video 2007

What is he saying? I don't know but I wish he was directing the sequel to Sex and the City.

RIP Malcolm McLaren

Legendary bastard Malcolm McLaren died today. If you're not familiar with who he is, he was a former manager for the New York Dolls and used his evil genius to make The Sex Pistols as anarchic as they were known for being. He created and starred in a very strange, semi-charmed film called THE GREAT ROCK 'N ROLL SWINDLE about The Sex Pistols (featuring Sid Vicious shortly before he died, but not Johnny Rotten, who thought McLaren was a raging, deluded asshole and wanted nothing to do with it). McLaren's partner-in-crime in the film is a silent lady dwarf, and by far the most memorable scene is their duet to "You Need Hands." That moment has always stuck with me but for some stupid reason it's no longer available on Youtube. Instead I offer you a few of his later songs, which are as varied and notable as they are inexplicably beautiful.

"About Her" fan video, popularized in Kill Bill 2

"Double Dutch" music video 1983

Madame Butterfly music video 1984

Don't know why, but that last one really gets me.

i am sam marine . com : updated

New site design for featuring my 100% authentic handwriting. I wonder if internet autographs will be a thing in the future? Maybe they are already. Anyway, enjoy it, try to make some money off it if you can. Included in the update is my old short from 2007, REAL GIRLS, because I recently found the accompanying storyboards we were required to make for Larry's class (and which he never looked at).

Yes, ridiculously anime, I know.

I also won a little blog contest held over at Michael Oshins's blog. He seems to be having on-going giveaways so check it out! Here was my prize:

Thanks Mike!

RIP Lurkey.
