And it’s here!
If you don’t know me: Hi. Nice to meet you. Crazy weather, like whoa.
Anyway, I do comedic movie reviews on the web. So bad it’s good movies, cult classics, genre shows, and miscellaneous mishmash in between! You can find me here.
Patreon is another way to support content…
At the risk of self-defeating, Lupa also has a Patreon!
Got extra money rattling around in the couch you too can make a great difference in the Rangoons’ lives… or at least it will help us do a better show more frequently!
Patreon lets you support your favorite shows (like/and The Isle of Rangoon) by setting amount to donate with each video release! And you can get neat bonuses for being a patron! You can also set a monthly backing limit, so you don’t have to worry about straining your budget.
Check out our pitch, and if you’re not familiar with us, check out our blip.tv channel here:
Does the island have a Slender Man? Do you think they'll ever feature ol slendy in a psa, or would that be in bad taste?
The Isle is a bit low-rent for your really meme-worthy pasta creepers. We have our own mythical terrors.
There’s old Man Cthulhu, of course, but he mostly just yells at you to get off his many-angled lawn.
There’s the South Olbenshire Ragpile Hag, of course, but that turned out to be a gang of bonobos with a sewing machine.
And there was the Fleeceland’s Strangler, who in the late 1990s baffled police and evaded mob justice by leaping over fences and spitting sparks from his mouth. This turned out to be a duck with its foot stuck in one of those old soda six-pack rings.
But for monsters we haven’t debunked yet, there’s the Under-walker. Legend has it the Under-walker is a terrifying creature, huge with pale skin, wet eyes and limp hair that lurks behind and slightly underneath its victims. It’s said you can feel his presence by the sensation of bony fingers with less-than-ideally-trimmed-fingernails ticking the inside of your snout. When you feel him, you must never, ever look at him or acknowledge his existence or time will skip back to the start of the last sentence you’ve said, dooming you to repeat events endlessly until you satisfy his unknowable standards or he decides it is “good enough”.
Who’s on the frontpage? We’re on the frontpage!
Even a good message can be told poorly. Try and tell an important message with ear-bleeding calliope “music”, clunky forced rhyming and animation that makes “Deputy Dawg” look like “Akira”, and you’ve got a disaster even before people get to the horrific world you’re setting up. There’s more creeps on the streets in this short than in “Hobo With A Shotgun”.
So just because “The Cautious Twins” has good advice at its core… really, what the hell, short?
As a director they can give you real clarity about when small moments/things work, sometimes they are more fluid than actors. The technicality of puppetry does set performance parameters, but when done well puppetry transports audiences utterly.
Lets talk Patreon
Hey fans of the Isle.
We’re looking to launch a patreon campaign, to help get things solvent and hopefully help us increase our release schedule.
The big question is, what kind of rewards should we offer? Exclusive rifflets? Puppet-building tutorials? Hand-burned DVD specials? Google/Skype hangouts? Seriously, we’re open to any suggestions and ideas.
Reblog with your ideas or kick us an ask. We could use the help.
so, Marionettes are the demons of the isle?
Sunny Jim and Starch face the return of the Mysterious Malefactor!
After months of slacking, the Malefactor is back and he has a disturbing marionette-filled short all about the joys and miseries of telephone operation for the Rangoons. He’s out to make up for lost time but an even more powerful force has its claws in his would-be victims: Starbound!*
Take a trip to the distant past, when telephones had dials, busy signals and sufficient mass to fell a mature bison with a single blow in… Adventure in Telezonia!
*This video also doubles as a review of the Starbound Beta.
