Best of BBtv – Bill Barminski (animation and short films)

The Boing Boing tv crew continues their hard-earned snooze in the sands of a swingers’ resort on the south shore of Mars today, but we’re revisiting the best of the show while we slack off in outer space. (Robot! Bring me another red Rover martini.)

Today, we feature the work of animator, filmmaker, and music video director Bill Barminski, a longtime Boing Boing fave.

Above, “Drive In,” a soothing ambient work I like to watch before bedtime.

Another beloved Barminksi joint is below,
S.E.X.Y. R.O.B.O.T.: Pinker Tones music video by Walter Robot
.

Here’s a link to all of the BBtv episodes which have featured Barminski’s work.

My favorite appears in the second half of this BBtv episode: the “Fuji Apple” animated short from Barminski’s production team Walter Robot, with music by Boards of Canada (song: Roygbiv, from “Music has the Right to Children.”) I could just watch that over and over again, and I often do.

    There’s a really funny chapter in Harmon Leon’s new book on swingers. The book is called, The American Dream. In the book he sets out to live the American Dream by walking in many different subculture’s shoes, such as pot farmers, carnies, bible-bangers, arms dealers. But the best chapter is the one on swingers. I’d highly recommend reading the book.
