Keen as we are on showing off home grown music videos allow me to present Riot regulars, The Feldons, and their latest bit of YouTube goodness: Down on love.
Most peculiar imagery. Is that some old movie?
Yeah, Mark made the clip.
Frankly, i reckon it’s just weird
Thats not just ‘some old movie’, its from the 1932 movie “Freaks”, originally banned in Australia for a while, banned in the UK until the mid 1960s, and never actually unbanned in the US.
The scene in that footage are from the wedding scene, where one of the norms (Cleopatra, wearing the earrings) marries Hans the midget (smiling ‘kid’ in a tuxedo) for his large inheritance. She slowly poisons him for his money and plans to run off with the circus strongman (Hercules), but the rest of the freaks take revenge on Cleopatra and Hercules,
Together they castrate Hercules, cutting out her tongue, one eye, her legs, and she is forced to join the freakshow as the “Imbecile Sqwuaking Chicken Lady” to eke out a living.
It killed the career of its director, who eventually became a recluse, dying in a friend’s bathroom at the age of 80.
Not a movie for the children.
Well done that man!
Oh my gosh, I went out drinking with these people!
*gag gasp retch … a whiter shade of blue*
Surely a spot of meditation with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi or some nice anger management would suffice?
I assure you that I had nothing to do with this video
However, I can post another that is not so weird…
(Although, I kind of like the weirdness in this one…)
I think I do know you’re as harmless as a daffodil, that man!
The video is cool!
Is it time to retire the tally room?
