Saturday Movie Night: The Mysterious Explorations of Jasper Morello

Well, I didn't make the deadline for the SMN this week - second week in, and already I'm slipping. Oh, well, overtime will do that sometimes. But at least it's still Saturday somewhere.

I thought I'd try to expand on the concept a bit by including a little round-up from the last week. More to the point, I'll give you the three best post I've read over the previous week. Before I get started, I need to include a little disclaimer. I am not setting myself up as an authority on good blogging, or even on penmanship. Further, while I try to read most posts on my blog-roll, there will be stuff I miss. So, if you feel left out, that's my bad, not yours. Now that that's out of the way, here's the stuff I think you should read if you haven't allready.

Round-up for week 42

There you go. My top three, in no particular order. I'm not sure if I'll make this a regular feature. We'll see next week.

Now onto tonight's main topic. This time I have two videos for you. The first I picked up on Thursday when Leketøys, one of the BoW-players, VJ'ed at a local bar. There was all sorts of really neat stuff on his play-lists, but this one made me take notice. Here you go, brilliant, disturbing, and confusing UNKLE.

And now the main feature of the evening, The Mysterious Explorations of Jasper Morello. I've posted this on this blog before, but I know there are still may out there who haven't seen this awesome film yet. And it is a big inspiration for the Outsiders of the BoW. I hope you'll take the time to watch this Lovecraftian steampunk marvel of an animation.

Ha en fin kveld, godtfolk.


  1. Thanks for the kind words, Harald! The Mysterious Explorations of Jasper Morello is really cool, too. I caught it on IFC (I think) a couple of years ago, without any explanations and really dug it.

  2. Awesome videos are awesome (and a bit creepy)

  3. I would love to see this be a regular feature. I always like to see what piques another person's interest!
    Loved the movies.

  4. That last film was amazing. Thanks for sharing!

  5. I'm really glad you guys liked this one. It's nice to go off-topic now and again.

    Don't mention it, mate. I'm right impressed by what you're doing over there.
