The Fine Art of Poisoning



Music by Jill Tracy, directed by Bill Domonkos.

I wanted to go with something Easter-themed, and what's more topical than poisoning by arsenic chocolate? Enjoy your weekend, Jesusheads -- no, not you of the fundie variety, you can go Cheney yourselves -- and secularists. Don't stay in bed too long and while you're out visiting grandma, be careful parking.

And watch out for exploding stars. It's bad enough gas prices are blowing up.
"Unka Dick, we should get one of those. Kill a lotta turrists, heh, heh."
"Grr, grr, GRR, G-R-R!"

As for me, I'll be in the middle of an all-day ritual to appease Cthulhu so he'll eat me last. Now where did I put those virgins....

I love how you bring back the cthonic spirit to Easter. No bunnies, chics, or lily for your Easter. Death, decay and despair--all the stuff I have come to expect in my Easter basket.

Thanks for the tip on B.Domonkos. Never seen these.
I love the High/Low tech and surrealist bent.

Hey, I went to a dinner party at that house once. Whew! And I'm still around to tell the tale. Now that I think back on it, no one was eating or drinking from the buffet. Seriously, great video. I'll have to show this to my hubsand. He'll dig it.

LBR, everything born must eventually die. Plus I generally don't do 'happy,' as you've noticed. Though Duke DID end up losing! WOO!

m.yu, it's really good stuff. I'm a Jill Tracy fan, and I hadn't heard of him until he did this video for her.

angie, you know, I don't think I'll be inviting you to any dinner parties any time soon. It's a great video and she's got, er, killer songs.

You might not "do" happy but you "do" sarcastic on a pro-like level. Go pray to the chocolate easter bunny.

Frederick said...

That's a kick ass video.

Scarlet W. Blue said...

I think he's getting a lot of that.

Alumni of Miskatonic U. send their usual regards and sorry, but I'm at the end of the line.

meanwhile back the NCAA tournament, dcap continues his long slumber

I like it. A Pagan twist to the searching for Easter egg tradition... hide-n-seek with virgins.

(I hope they have wi-fi in jail tomorrow.)

Oh, the accidental occurrence of consciousness. Damned if it doesn't make us all look foolish, huh?

Tom Harper said...

About those virgins -- I bet I'll get more of them than you. I'm gonna get me 72 virgins. All I have to do is kill me an infidel and then kill myself. Death to America!

Oh wait, uh, was it 72 virgins or 72 Virginians? Back to the drawing board...

Dean Wormer said...

Silly randal. You can TRY to appease Cthulhu but he'll still eat you first just to be a smart ass.

It was Easter?

Randal Graves said...

fot, and end up with more chocolate bunnies? That's all they dispense!

frederick, it truly is. I should be getting her new album in the mail this week, so hopefully they'll churn out some equally groovy ones for that.

SWB, I did, but that's why I bought those antibiotics. I'm better now.

susan, sorry, I couldn't hear you over the squishing of Innsmouth feet.

dcap, even during the Davidson-Georgetown game? Oh, the pain, the pain of it all!

FB, it's funny, the whole virgin tie-in with various rites. Hell with that, I want someone who knows what she's doing, dagnabbit.

will, and if humanity is nothing else, it's certainly foolish!

tom, better hope you don't end up with 72 copies of The Virginian on tape, instead!

dean, my theory is that if there's a big pile of virgins, he'll go merely by amount of available flesh to eat, thereby attacking them first instead of ole Randal.

poli, I wasn't sure myself until some giant rabbit accosted me when I went to get the paper. He said I had to color some eggs or the squirrel gets it.

I finally got around to watching this video after ignoring it a few times. Awesome!
