Brothers Quay

Haven't posted anything in a while, but I shall soooon! Scouts honor! I hated cub scouts actually. At least I was never an alter boy, haha. It's amazing how much the internet has done to increase the flow of information in our world. Almost any piece of knowledge you want can be found, or at least you can find out where to get it. You can bit torrent almost any book on any subject written or get any piece of software you want. Just think what it'll be in ten years. You'll be able to illegally download your groceries! (...i thought that was funny at least)

Looked up my favorite short-film/music video ever by the Quay Brothers. First saw this a few years ago and I've always been fascinated by it. Truly the masters of stop-motion avant garde pee in your pants doing acid gothic flimmaking, or whatever you want to call it. I don't care, its amazing. The awesomely emotional music by His Name Is Alive compliments it perfectly. It reminds me a little of something Tim Burton would do, but just a LOT more powerful for some eerie reason. I love these guys. Kind of how I like Ho-Ho's. Here ya go:

They've done a lot of other work that is worth checking out.
