Sally Cruikshank’s “Quasi At The Quackadero”
Cruikshank was an animator for Sesame Street in the 70s, but her bizarre cartoon from 1975 is in its own class as a trippy, queasy, and visually inventive narrative. It follows two ducks and a pet robot at an amusement park in the future where time travel is exploited. You have to click over to YouTube to watch it.

Thanks too Lee for reminding me of this.
We recently got a receiver and speakers here at Slowmobile HQ. 200 watts of sound for only $40 at the thrift store. Hooked up the old record player after way too long in storage.
One of the first new records I bought was Sonny And The Sunsets’ “Hit After Hit” - and been playing it nonstop. It’s a bit reminiscent of old Jonathan Richman, Buddy Holly, The Ventures, all kind of fuzzy and crackling, warm and jangly. The songs are short and simple. Its a great summer record; wish I’d gotten it earlier when it was so hot.
You might be familiar with Sonny from his multi-media art exhibition 100 Records, for which Sonny wrote 100 songs and their B-Sides while in residency at Marin Headlands. He then recorded all tracks and built a custom jukebox to play them all on demand, which was exhibited along with a 7” record cover for each single, designed by different visual artists. The whole thing toured (and is still touring the world I believe.) I was lucky to have been invited to design one of the record covers, and we showed the whole thing at Okay Mountain gallery in Austin, Texas.
Hey everyone, I made this flyer for the band of a talented friend of mine. He is Geoffrey Dyer and his band is called Liftonpoole, based in Bakersfield, California. Ever heard of “The Bakersfield Sound”?
Another classic from Drea Cooper and Zackary Canepari, aka “California Is A Place”
Reality. Its real.
