    Wow, are they making a video for every song? I’m heavily in favor, if that’s the case.

    Wasn’t so fussed with the music, but I loved the ‘Fritz the Cat’ vibe on the video.

  7. AikeaGuinea says:

    Somewhat related, but I love the Brazilian name for Daffy Duck. Pato Louco. Crazy Duck.

    i remember the duckjob wav they’ve sampled here, i could hardly open my email a decade or so ago without someone mailing it to me… think it was from a radio show.

    @AikeaGuinea Daffy Duck is actually called “Patolino” in Brazil.

    The “duckjob” sample was from Alex Bennett’s morning radio show (Live105 San Francisco). Not sure who did the voice, Billy West? Proops?

    The Spirit of Apollo is a great album — for something similar also check out BK-One with Benzilla, “Rádio Do Canibal”

    Music good, graphics good, cockroaches beyond good, but for some of we women, the adolescent male sameness gets so friggin’ fatiguing sometimes… Hot-bodied babes live only to ornament and perform for loser dudes. Fantasize on, guys.

    NEVER seen this design. I did everything alone, design and script (which has a Duck as a character). I drew using photo as a BG, I made this clip in my neighborhood, in Brazil, in my home on my computer. Disney was using animals as characters. You’re talking shit. is the outside world, which creates and lives without having to copy anything. Never been to America, not to copy anything. Design for 24 years this way. Was inspired in Crumb, Niquel Nausea (from Brazil) and Jano (from France) and other designers from other countries and Brazil. Must have thousands of drawings like the world before you talk about search meet other artists from other countries. Thanks
