A thing still it is

Saturday, December 01, 2012


In the late 1990s and early 2000s when I was teaching myself spittle effects animation, creating fake UFO footage was a fun thing to do. I posted some of the resulting shots on usenet and elsewhere without attribution, doing my part to sow seeds of confusion. Early this morning one of the UFO sequences turned up in the wee hours on the Discovery Channel (or one of its diluted offsharts) in a show called, approximately, "The Strangest UFO Cases Ever." Amused, I did a quick Google search and discovered those very same scenes have been uploaded by a number of different people over the years, none of them indicating the video didn't originate with them. At some point, a little story became attached to the video, which has followed the video from place to place, dutifully copied and pasted. A few creative individuals have even re-edited the video, and added festive soundtracks.  Ain't that spatial!

REPERKUSSIONZ is still a thing!
