A new kind of nightmare

Thanks to my buddy, Peter Serafinowicz for showing me this slice of utter terror. The thought that must have gone into this…

I wonder if any of those kids watching ever slept again.

Mind-throbbing excellence from Alan Warbuton

Alan Warburton is a stunning visual artist and animator. A while back I posted his brilliantly freaky ‘Spherical Harmonics‘. Well, now his new film is out, and it’s, of course, fantastic. Enjoy…

From the people who brought you this, here’s why office workers should never do a ‘witty’ workplace rap. Get ready to tear your own skull out:

God saved my hamsters

Wow, this was a pretty freaky phone call, but thank the Lord all hamsters were saved. Look out for the wild horn-blowing. (Apologies for sound quality).

Definitely proud of the squeaks at the end….

Stunning animation from Alan Warburton

I can’t stop watching this. It’s so strange and eerie, and just so imaginative.

Origen’s Wake

Back in 2001, when I was working at Channel 4 in the comedy department, I was lucky enough to be able to commission the brilliant Waen Shepherd to make this amazing animation as part of the Comedy Labs strand. I recently watched it again and it’s as funny, spooky and horrible as I remember it. Just perfect…

Great music too from Waen too.

Lovely English language film

I love this. The dramatic scene is just so stilted and odd. Look out for Russell, the ‘pop singer,’ and when he plays the piano and sings, “Yes… I know…” quite mournfully.

Danke @tomparratt. Es war sehr gut.

Unspeakably terrible university recruitment video

This is seriously like something for some kind of cult. Not ONE of these people can hold a note. Also, ‘rapping’ while holding a recycling bin is something I have never seen before…

Thanks to @mylarmelodies. Altogether now… :L-S-La-La-La-La-La-L-S…’

Bowie v Buxton

How can I not love this? I love David Bowie, I love Adam Buxton, so when you put the two together…

Lovely animation too by The Brothers McLeod. Enjoy…
