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

Somewhat verbose worker's rights and government accountability attorney, residing in northwest Brea. General Counsel of CATER, the Coalition of Anaheim Taxpayers for Economic Responsibility, a non-partisan group of people sick of local corruption. Deposed as Northern Vice Chair of DPOC in April 2014 when his anti-corruption and pro-consumer work in Anaheim infuriated the Building Trades and Teamsters in spring 2014, who then worked with the lawless and power-mad DPOC Chair to eliminate his internal oversight. Occasionally runs for office to challenge some nasty incumbent who would otherwise run unopposed. (Someday he might pick a fight with the intent to win rather than just dent someone. You'll know it when you see it.) He got 45% of the vote against Bob Huff for State Senate in 2012 and in 2014 became the first attorney to challenge OCDA Tony Rackauckas since 2002. None of his pre-putsch writings ever spoke for the Democratic Party at the local, county, state, national, or galactic level, nor do they now. A family member co-owns a business offering campaign treasurer services to Democratic candidates and the odd independent. He is very proud of her. He doesn't directly profit from her work and it doesn't affect his coverage. (He does not always favor her clients, though she might hesitate to take one that he truly hated.) He does advise some local campaigns informally and (so far) without compensation. (If that last bit changes, he will declare the interest.)
