!! OMG, better yourself: Sleep it off with Snapdragon !!


On this New Year’s Day, filmmaker Jake Sherman‘s docu-style short film The Meeting reminds us that self improvement can happen anywhere. Max Kelly plays the role of a cult leader/sleep therapy guru named Snapdragon who attempts to reconnect young men with their sexuality in his garage.
BONUS: After the jump, watch Sherman’s sort-of-NSFW two-minute film The Desert Man, also featuring Max Kelly this time wandering (eventually naked) in the Nevada desert.

!! OMG, if you think you had it bad: Bette Davis Tells Her Children They’re Getting War Bonds For Christmas (1943) !!


I love the look on Bette Davis‘ kids’ faces when she tells them they’re getting war bonds under the tree. They really shit themselves. They are not pleased. I would not be either.
To be fair, Bette was actually being totally responsible and practical during World War II. Rather than heading to the mall and handing her kids the credit card — she was trying to cut back and help pitch in to “protect her country” and stuff, so we’ll give her that. (Even though she probably got paid bucket loads to shoot this.)

!! OMG, a card makes Christmas complete: Terry Gilliam’s ‘The Christmas Card’ Animation (1968) !!

231664011_640.jpg
Terry Gilliam, director of several cult classics like Brazil and Time Bandits, and known for his work on Monty Python made this awesome animation out of Victorian Christmas cards back in 1968. Here’s what Terry had to say about the making of this awesome, short animation:

Gilliam was asked to prepare something for a special show to be broadcast on Christmas day, 1968, called Do Not Adjust Your Stocking. Looking for inspiration, he decided to visit the Tate Gallery. In The Pythons: Autobiography by the Pythons, Gilliam remembered the project and how it figured into his emerging artistic style:
“I went down to the Tate and they’ve got a huge collection of Victorian Christmas cards so I went through the collection and photocopied things and started moving them around. So the style just developed out of that rather than any planning being involved. I never analysed the stuff, I just did it the quickest, easiest way. And I could use images I really loved.”

!! OMG, The ‘AbFab’ movie is actually happening says Jennifer Saunders !!

ab-fab-fashion-moments.jpg
Grab the champagne and the plastic cups, darling! It looks as if AbFab may be headed to the big screen!
Jennifer Saunders posted an AbFab movie poster (dated 2015) to her official Facebook page over this week, and according to NewNowNext, a new AbFab feature film is on it’s way:

“There isn’t [a movie] but there will be,” Jennifer told UK chat show This Morning’. “I’m close to picking up a pen, that’ how close it is.”
Saunders on-screen costar Joanna Lumley confirmed the AbFab movie, but says she has to pressure Saunders to get to writing the script. “I think with a little bit of, not too painful, pressure, a little bit of vice-like grip and a Chinese burn on the arm, up behind her back, I think it’ll happen.” Joanna Lumley told TV personality Jonathan Ross. “Jennifer tends to work to deadlines, so we’ve got to create a deadline and then get her there.”

We’re leaning towards a yes on this. It would be too much of a cruel joke if Saunders had released a poster with a 2015 date on it, and had no intention of following through on it, don’t you think? Will you be checking out the AbFab film upon it’s release?
