Basement Redux


Finally managed to get this one up. It replaces the one that was taken down. "Ramones Cartoon I Dot Wanna Go Down To The Basement"
Audio used for the newer version is The Demo of that particular track. As far as i know it was never officially released on any official recording.
This was the first thing i did. I liked the idea of those old 50's horror comics. This was printed on newsprint paper. Its been weather'd and left out in the sun  it bit for that aging effect. Its one of the many things i couldnt squeeeze into the actual video .


A few gags bit the dust to fit everything in . This is one of them . Maybe an excuse to make a different edit made up of lost scenes.
Always loved those creepy cartoons from the 30's and 40's particularly Disney's Mickey Mouse short Lonesome Ghosts and The Fleischer Titles . Popeye and Betty Boop stuff. So Less Hanna Barbera Scooby Doo more
Fleischer, Disney. That was the inspiration.
Sabrina The Teenage Witch was in the original version from  2007 . But nothing like this.
Isnt she in The Archies Sugar Sugar video as well ?

Heatwave London

Currently in London it's topping 90 F . Excuse enough to put Ronald Searle's illustration of London in the heat.

" I Hate Everything "

I saw a girl with this on . Rather than take a photo ( no camera and maybe intrusive) A sketch from memory . 

Projects

Some of the things i've been wanting to finish . Above is a Yellow Submarine tribute that's been on the go for quite some time .
And the other two screen shots are for The Ramones cartoon that im endeavouring to complete.
Was sort of in two minds as i am at the complete mercy of Warner Music Groups copyright policy.
They can block content containing music that they own. 
I'd like to get them up for everyone who'd enjoy seeing another. Watch this space.

A Searle Christmas

Nobody captures that wicked Christmas spirit like Ronald Searle.
