GET WELL SOON - Roland I Feel You (Vimeo, NSFW) is a music video that pays homage to Alejandro Jodorowsky, Ray Harryhausen, and Italian horror. Contains nudity and gore and zaniness.

That's pretty excellent.

That's a better homage than I expected.

Also, I think maybe the eye-patch is a reference to Vibenius' Thriller? At any rate, if it were a martini, the Jodorowsky pastiche would be the gin, and all the other references would be the dash of vermouth swirled round the glass.

In conclusion, that is awesome and I would watch the hell out of it if were a real feature film.

Another interesting, original thing compromised.

Wee.

This is pretty great. It's also far better than anything Jodorowsky ever made, although that's not that difficult, since he's a completely inept filmmaker (not to mention a pretentious twat).

You are making my ex-roommate cry with this talk. I hope you are satisfied, you monster!

I only just now got to watch the video after faving it at work last week. (Thanks for the NSFW on that, BTW.)

HOLY COW. It turns out that a Jodorowsky/Argento/Harryhausen mashup was exactly what I needed today. The song was kind of backgroundy and forgettable, but the visuals were just lovely. Thanks, Sticherbeast!
