Weekend Open Thread: Fun With Stop Motion


 Powered by Max Banner Ads 

Just a little video to share with you this week. The song may not be to your liking — though I liked it and my daughter literally ran into the room to find out what it was — but it’s the video that’s really a lot of fun. None of this will be entirely new to fans of Ray Harryhausen or Art “Gumby” Clokey or the Aardman Animations studios or some of other great stop action animators, but has the advantages of being tuneful, dreamy, and sexy. And if you don’t like it — well, you have the whole weekend to recover.

This is your Weekend Open Thread. Talk about this or whatever else you want, within general bounds of decorum and discretion.  And … sweet dreams!

In honor of Rand Paul, I was going to make a filibuster joke here — “stop motion,” get it? — but I shall instead be merciful.


About Greg Diamond

Prolix worker's rights and government accountability attorney and General Counsel of CATER. His anti-corruption work in Anaheim infuriated the Building Trades and Teamsters in spring 2014, leading them to work with the Democratic Party of Orange County Chair and other co-conspirators (who had long detested the internal oversight his presence provided) to remove him from the position of DPOC North Vice Chair of in violation of party rules and any semblance of due process. He also runs for office sometimes. Unless otherwise specifically stated, none of his writings prior to that lawless putsch ever spoke for the Democratic Party at the local, county, state, national, or galactic level. He tries to either suppress or openly acknowledge his partisan, issue, ideological, and "good government" biases in most of his writing here. If you have a question about any particular writing, just ask him about it and (unless you are an pseudonymous troll) he will probably answer you at painful length. He lives in Beautiful Bountiful Brea, but while he may brag about it he generally doesn't blog about it. A family member works as a campaign treasurer for candidates including Wendy Gabriella in AD-73; he doesn't directly profit from that relatively small compensation and it doesn't affect his coverage. He does advise some campaigns informally and (except where noted) without compensation.
