A few weekends back, the weather was turning warm, and I started noticing inchworms everywhere. They would dangle from trees on their little silken strings and let the wind carry them somewhere. I found it incredibly beautiful (and probably pretty fun for the inchworm too). I’m not sure if anybody’s ever filmed inchworms dangling before. I found YouTube videos of their incredibly cute walk, but not of them dangling about, so I decided to make a few. These are quite long and possibly boring, but that’s why they’re experiments:
Your head is like a yoyo Your neck is like a string Your body’s like Camembert Oozing from its skin Your fanny’s like two sperm whales Floating down the sand Your voice is like a long fuck That’s music to your brain
One of the greatest songs I’ve heard recently is by the group The Art Ensemble of Chicago. Theme De Yoyo is the first song off their album Les Stances a Sophie which was made in 1970 as a soundtrack album for a film, but the whole album is great. As I understand it, I don’t think the music was actually ever used in the film. I’ve bought several other Art Ensemble of Chicago albums and they have all been a little too noise/experimental for me. I think they strike the perfect balance here between chaos and melody (at least for my taste).
