southern fried bigfoot
about two years ago, i met up with writer/director/bigfoot documentarian sean whitely on myspace and, since i know a little bit about the subject and have a close personal friendship with the big guy (see above), sean offered me a chance to pre-view his film with the hopes that maybe i'd write a blurb for the dvd cover (ha! thought i. what a maroon! like anyone would care what i thought of anything...) i tried to tell him that he was making a big mistake, but he was kind enough to send me a copy of the disc anyway.
that was, like, november.
in my defense i'll say that though i, of course, devoured it right away, the screener copy that sean sent me was clean all the way through until the last ten minutes where is suddenly started to stall and digitize and was all corrupted and stuff. so i never got to see the entire thing.
until last week. 'cause sean was nice enough to send me a new clean copy that i eagerly loaded into the player the other night and just got lost in it all over again.
now, having immersed myself in the entire southern fried bigfoot experience. i humbly submit the following...
"While most of us feature the Pacific Northwest as the generally accepted stomping grounds of anything Sasquatch, Sean Whitely and his talented Crew beg to differ and offer, as a complete and compelling argument, this comprehensive journey through the swamps and backwoods south of the Mason-Dixon Line to shed some light on the other American Bigfoot Legends--the ones we've heard far too little about!
"The Filmmakers not only expose these hidden hominids to the light--The Fouke Monster, The Honey Island Swamp Monster, The Florida Skunk Ape, and The Lake Worth Monster--relating tales of sightings and incidents via first-hand eye-witnesses when available, but also delve into the history of each area and the folklore that surrounds these crypto-creatures.
"Southern Fried Bigfoot is the closest any true Bigfoot Researcher is going to get to going on an expedition to track down the elusive giant without actually getting off the couch!"
Todd Dezago--Writer, Sensational Spider-Man, Tellos, The Perhapanauts.

so, i'm still neck-deep in alice in wonderland and though i'm having huge fun, it is both time-consuming and exhausting. and (a little frustrating--i'm having a hell of a time with people who jerking me around regarding elements of the set. like, the whole set.) saturday was load-in and i spent the dqy approving costumes (and having fun lunch with the girls...), drawing and coloring props and scenery, delegating various prop constructions, building a hookah, cutting out flamingos, balling yarn, and watching martina create some amazing things with make-up!
it's gonna be fun, but here are a couple of the images i used for inspiration...'cause i got nothing else...
i gotta go fight with a guy about a jungle gym.
smell ya later~!
