Clutch Cargo and Syncro Vox

This technique will never not be weird.

I agree about the weirdness of it, but at least that cartoon was from a time when Saturday morning cartoons were still family fare instead of training material for the "Future Psychos of America" club like so much of what our kids are watching today.

This is the kind of crap that came along when $$$ got into the way of quality!

It seems that eventually $$$ always get in the way of quality. How many restaurants have you eaten at that have been bought out by a mega company and the food quality goes rapidly downhill while massive advertising keeps the crowd coming in like lambs to the slaughter.

Many years ago when HMOs were first created and their assigned motto was "A quick death is a cheap death" I wrote an article on them. One of the things I wrote was the following.

"When something, like the insurance industry, is created for people it will be run by people who will do anything for people. But when it becomes about money it will be taken over by people who will do anything for money."

Over the years since I wrote that I have come to realize that the principle expressed in it can apply to almost anything.

One of the weirdest movies ever made is "The Forbidden Zone" with Hervé Villechaize, Susan Tyrrell and members of the Mystic Knights of the Oingo Boingo, and features appearances by Warhol Superstar Viva, Joe Spinell and The Kipper Kids. See the OFFICIAL WEBSITE for more detail. Knowing how truly bad this film is I was amazed to find anything on it with a Google search never mind it's own site.

The reason I am mentioning it here is that at one point early in the film it uses the Syncro Vox technique on a live human face. It actually looks weirder than the cartoon version.
