Imagination was given to man to compensate him for what he is not, and a sense of humor was provided to console him for what he is. - Oscar Wilde
Animation, Art, and Other Shiny Things
One of the nice things about long holiday weekends is that you don’t have to think – you can just kind of experience life as it goes by. Well, this video doesn’t give you a choice – you can’t think and you will experience it as it screams along. That’s not a bad thing but do hold on.
Animation by Mattias Gordon.
Music by Hazmat Modine.
Hazmat Modine describes itself as “blending elements of early Blues, Hokum Jugband, Swing, Klezmer, New Orleans R & B, and Jamaican Rocksteady” and I would say that this song hits every one of them on it’s meander.
And speaking of meander… This video does that too in an incredible stream-of-conciousness way. By the time I asked myself “What in the hell am I seeing?” I had already gotten absorbed by the blues-boppy tune.
