One year in (very shortly) and we’re finally talking about things relevant to the 21st century!
Geeks of all stripes are lining up. Disbelief is being suspended. And Hedorah has filed an anti-defamation suit with the ACLU… Pacific Rim is coming and we’ve got the monster and lizard-like-thing perspective on the trailer!
On Friday, we’ll be nine years away from the Isle of Rangoon being ten years old! It’s all happened so fast!
Our first real review was the CGI tale of a gourmet chef who happens to be a rat. No, not that one. The OTHER one.
Rats, food-sensing goggles and the world’s worst CGI cat await you in… Ratatoing!
On the 25th, our show turns one year old. It seems like only a decade ago that I first stabbed myself with a needle while trying a baseball stitch.
This was our first review and boy, did it come in hot. We had great guest stars from the world of Transformers Fandom: Vangelus of TGWTG, Derrick Wyatt (character designer for Transformers Animated) and even Dan Gilvezan (g1 Bumblebee) and David “Walky” Willis (Shortpacked!, etc!)
The rest of our videos combined have almost matched the view count on this one.
The Isle Turns 1 on Friday! Mark the date, we have something special planned!
This is where the Isle truely came into its own. Our first riff with full sketch content and the introduction of our main villain, the Mysterious Malefactor.
The Isle is 1 year old on Friday. Basic motor skills and language capabilities are sure to follow shortly!
Speaking of Dgeypscun, this is our first crossover, with Imaginary Gary of Opinion-Ville lending his voice to speak out against a dread disease that affects thousands of puppets every year.
On Friday, the Isle of Rangoon is one year old.
This particular sketch was inspired by Dgeypscun of OpinionVille fame, I was greatly inspired by Jason-with-a-D and this Carl Sagan adaptation was my attempt at doing a pro-skepticism video.
We continue our march toward the 1-year anniverary on Friday, here with Old Man Cthulhu, the Elder God (it’s a playlist! Let it run and you’ll see ‘em all!)
Fun Fact: Old Man Cthulhu was the first Rangoon. Sort of.
The ‘Cranky Old Man Cthulhu’ concept, as a puppet, originated two years before Isle of Rangoon formed and before I even started to learn how to sew. Like many of my ideas it was tossed into a sketchbook to age. I’d vaguely considered having him made on commission, but I was too poor for that, so I instead learned to make puppets to have one.
He was the third or forth puppet I actually made. The first Starchibald was my ‘lets see if this works’ project, which I followed up with a dragon named Drosby, who was a test for OMC’s wings. Once I was comfortable with sewing, I moved on to the full foam-body-and-tendrils guy you see above.
On the 24th, the Isle of Rangoon turns 1 year old!
Sounds like an excuse to repost to me! We’ll start here, with the first Rangoon Riff, “Leave it to Roll-Oh”, a short film about robots and domestic slavery from the 1940’s World’s Fair! Robots, condescension and terror come together on the Isle of Rangoon.
