Tales of the Texas Rangers (opening and closing)
This is the indelible start and finish of each episode. (Spanish subtitles kind of obscure parts of it, but it's the best I could find.) We kids used to sing, "These are tales of Texas Rangers, a band of dirty men".

Seraffyn and Cherubim the Wandering Minstrels (1956)
Seraffyn and Cherubim (Donald Mork and Ania Romaine), two roving troubadours earn mixed reviews in their knight's tour of the castles and shires of eastern Massachusetts. 16mm film shot in 1956 by Phil Mork (with a few bits of wild-sync sound matched up for the first time in 60 years). That's the Castle, a dormitory at Brandeis University in Waltham, standing in for Château d'Aspach-le-Haut.

Seraffyn and Cherubim - The Troubador Song
Film made in 1956 by Phil Mork in Needham, MA. The sound was on a separate tape, which I matched with the picture and it wasn't an easy task, but worth it. The song? Not an authentic folk song, apparently, and recorded by Burl Ives which perhaps is where Donnie and Ania heard it. Don't know who wrote it - but hey, ain't it pretty?

Felix the Cat in Forty Winks (1929)
A late silent-era Felix, (with a typical shoddy potted-in soundtrack) that's full of fun; the settings and situations keep changing so it's like you get five cartoons in one. The running pants are but a highlight. The video runs at correct silent speed, with soundtrack pitch digitally re-tuned up a third to avoid that "oogy" sound of a film that's running too slow.

Run It Backwards presents Terrytoons!
It's 1963 - you're at summer camp and it's raining - no fun. The counselor sets up a 16mm projector in the mess hall and runs a reel of cartoons. But it ends, so what do you do next? You run it backwards! Fun is back, and funnier than ever! Part 1 of a series - and yes, I take requests.

How a Mosquito Operates - Winsor McCay, 1912
True-life saga taken from raw nature at its most ferocious. The wild mosquito ruthlessly stalks its succulent victim. Ooh, I can't watch! (I have edited out some of the more awkward "back-and-forths", bits where a set of drawings gets repeated backwards and forwards - something McCay did a lot, and not always adeptly - in order to bring out the smooth flow of the animation. Yes, I know I'm messing with Film History, but heck, it's only YouTube.)

Fables Studio - Little Parade (1926)
A silent cartoon to which a music and effects track was added. It was shown on the Cartoon Network, played at silent speed (16 fps), which meant the sound was slowed down along with the picture and sounded all oogy. I took this YouTube video, originally posted by someone else, and used software to raise the pitch by 1/3. Also fixed the sync, and some glitches. I'm used to seeing later Terrytoons from the sound era where the cats are all selfish and treat the mice shabbily, so what a surprise to see the ringmaster cat shed a tear for the (assumed) demise of the girl acrobat. That cat has heart!

Christmas boar's head ceremony with Seraffyn the Minstrel at Sturbridge, Mass. (silent)
A traditional Christmas Boar's Head Ceremony, presided over by Donald Mork, a.k.a. Seraffyn the Wandering Minstrel, at the Col. Ebenezer Crafts Inn in Sturbridge, MA, circa 1960. Three years ago I posted a different film of the ceremony, performed at a different inn in Williamstown, MA. The present clip, roughly edited, is in black and white and has no sound, but in some ways I like it more. It has a very Christmasy feel, being lit mainly by candles. The guests at the Inn do a spirited sing-along, and there's a jolly-looking beefeater. In the film, Christmas candles are lit, the wassail bowl is presented and the Innkeeper offers a toast. A boar's head (in this case a stuffed one) is brought in and various dishes are laid on the table. The yule log is put into the hearth, doused with Christmas cheer (of a high alcohol content, by the look of it) and sprinkled with frankincense. The housemaids are teased by a jester, the rafter is decked with holly, and the evening ends in rousing song.

Radio Tirana - Ford pardons Nixon (1974 commentary)
From Radio Tirana (Albania), an English-language broadcast including three songs and an editorial, "Ford's Pardon and the Falsity of American Democracy". Recorded from shortwave radio in Sept. 1974. I used to enjoy their broadcasts. There were two women who did the English programs, one who sounded old and one younger. They had this flat delivery, and I pictured them wearing starchy uniforms and furrowing their brows as they extolled the latest achievements of Comrade Enver Hoxha. Albania was a very closed society then, you couldn't go there but listening to these broadcasts you just knew they had built a Worker's Paradise - they said so every evening.

It's hard to be depressed when you're feeling so high, it's all about the way I want to be - why - it's not the way you look it's not the way you laugh. I've hardly thought about that.
