Rough Cut

Well, I could not do it.

I could not make this animation come together.

Since you might be ever so bored, I am posting what I had-a little unedited, and the part where they are dancing runs really long because I kind of mesmerized myself.

  7. Ah, it might be something of a cliche since Shakespeare wrote of it, but the fragile love that exists twixt sci-fi alien and leathery chicken never gets old.

    Have you noticed how many dollies . . . I mean action figures, including Spock there, have 'imploring hands' ?

    It's almost as if they WANT you to make stop motion videos with them.

    1. NO! But that is a good idea-a little smoke or fog makes music videos that much more spectacular

    1. I was studying escapements the other day (part of the internals of a clock) and was thinking about building a grandfather clock. Watching the oscillatory Spock-Chicken Dance gave me several ideas for a pendulum. I guess I could caLL it a Grand Spock Clock.

      Then I was also reminded of Sheldon's "Rock-paper-scissors-lizard-Spock", which after your cinematic effort wiLL now be "Rock-paper-scissors-chicken-Spock" in my mind.

      The rules of Rock-paper-scissors-chicken-Spock are:

      Scissors cut paper
      Paper covers rock
      Rock gets stuck in gizzard of chicken (causing indigestion)
      Chicken wakes up Spock
      Spock smashes scissors
      (shiny) Scissors act as a mirror, scaring chicken
      Chicken wads up paper
      Paper disproves Spock
      Spock vaporizes rock
      Rock crushes scissors

    2. Thats too bad-I wonder why they won't work-sorry
      Your game design is truly elaborate, with a dash of strange

  10. Love.

    My favorite part had to be the end with the words "Can't stand to be kept away... from your body..." while focusing on the chicken's voluptuousness.

    1. That was the whole reason the rest of the video existed-because of the how silly it struck me that Chicago would sing passionately of a leather chicken's body

  11. Good heavens that is HILARIOUS! I had NO idea Spock was so suave. As for Miss Chicky, well, she is voluptuous. What's not to like? Gween, you are, once again, awesomesauce!

  17. I laughed - out loud, loudly - through this entire video. My favourite bit was Spock doing a pirouette. Amazing.
