How Disney villains die.

I have noticed how Dis­ney vil­lains always had to be respon­si­ble for their own deaths. The good guy can’t straight up kill them. The pre­ferred method has been to have them cause their own fall from some great height. This also con­ve­niently allows them to dis­ap­pear from sight, so the young audi­ence is spared the ugly after image.

I am happy that YouTube user Chief­BrodyRules has put together this super cut of Dis­ney vil­lain death scenes. (mostly deaths, some are just falls.) While not specif­i­cally com­edy, there are some funny moments added in, usu­ally pro­vided by the side­kicks. Some vil­lains are a lit­tle ridicu­lous to begin with, so humor works bet­ter with them. Oth­ers are por­trayed as truly fear­some, so it’s more appro­pri­ate to keep their deaths serious.

Roberto Begnini’s observation of Chaplin’s ass.

Chaplin's Ass

Since today is Char­lie Chaplin’s birth­day, I’ll repost this lit­tle tidbit.

Roberto Beg­nini is the Ital­ian come­dian respon­si­ble for the Acad­emy Award win­ning film “Life is Beau­ti­ful”, and one of my favorite films, “Johnny Stechinno”.

Accord­ing to IMDB, Beg­nini is quoted as saying:

Chap­lin used his ass bet­ter than any other actor.  In all his films, his ass is prac­ti­cally the pro­tag­o­nist.  For a comic, the ass has incred­i­ble importance.”

Jimmy Slonina

Jimmy Slonina is my kind of per­former. I dis­cov­ered him when one of his lip sync videos showed up on Boing Boing. Here are three of those. These are great for watch­ing how faces move, but equally, if you are cre­at­ing lip sync you might want to cre­ate ref­er­ence that goes to this level.
