IMAGEMAKERS: BETTER THAN A GAGA/TIMBERLAKE SNL FINALE?
CHICKEN HEADS (BOTTOM PIC): this short was about a boy who lives in rugged, sandy, hilly, mountainous terrain and is enamored with two particular pets, a gazelle and a dog. he lies about what happened to his father's prized sheep, blaming the dog, almost dooming the dog to eat poisoned chicken heads as a fatal punishment. that's one angry father, no? turns out, the dad sprinkled the chicken heads with flour, not poison.
BUNNY (TOP 3 PICS): this short was rugged terrain as well, except this time it's a rough, run-down neighborhood. another tale of a boy and his pet, this time a pet bunny. there's a boy and his oft-acquaintance, a street tough who fakes a badass game but is really just all mushy and crying inside. when the street tough steals the boy's prized bunny, it's on. eventually, the street tough's mother gets in on the act and demands to know why a bunny is in her house. the boy realizes the street tough needs something, ANYTHING to love, so he relents and lets the street tough keep the rabbit.
1. name an experience of yours involving chicken heads.
2. in BUNNY, i loved how the boys would treat their bicycles. when they were at their destination, they brutally slammed down their bikes without a care in the world, as if the bikes were but momentary trash to be thrown away. what prized possession of yours do you find yourself treating badly?
