Dark fears, black humor and oral

The Sick and
Twisted Animation
Festival
Various Directors
by Austin Ratner
D espite its title, The Sick and
Twisted Animation Festival is not
simply a bunch of offensive and dis-
gusting sight gags - although ab-

horrent images like, say, oral
necrophilia, pop up -in more than a
few places.
In spanning the full off-color
spectrum, the festival entertains with
black humor and sometimes re-
pulses. It creates an interesting mon-
tage of artistic glimpses into the
deep, dark well of human fears and
emotions, and into the human expe-
rience of the body.
The cartoons fall roughly into
three or four categories. The best of

the harmlessly scatological was
probably Steven Lee's funny skit
"Da Butt," in which a young girl's
heavyset and oblivious father re-
peatedly crushes her by sitting on
her while she tries to watch TV. The
crowd at the Michigan Theater,
which had been whipped into a
frenzy by the animated orgy of defe-
cation, fornication and violent in-
juries, seemed not to appreciate this
one. Hard to believe that something
called "Da Butt" could be too subtle,

necrophilia
but this pack seemed to be out for
hard core only.
Craig McCracken's "No Neck
Joe" was another fairly innocuous
joke, having absurd fun with a
character who literally has no neck.
Sick and Twisted fans liked this one - --
better. --
The ironically titled "Quiet -
Please" by Mike Grimshaw repre-
sents the class of films which exper-

WV hen Weekend etc. takes a look at
the best of Ann Arbor this school
year, our most important category
will inevitably center around sex.
Why are we here, after all? Here's
what you had to say about sex and
dating in Ann Arbor.
Best Place to Meet a Date: Class
OK, maybe we are here to get an
education. But why let that stop you
from getting some sexual develop-
ment as well? Make romantic reac-
tions while you're cramming for that
chem exam. Just let your eyes wan-
der around your Shakespeare lecture
hall and, but soft, your eyes will
alight upon the man/woman of your
dreams. Stalk him/her for three or
four more lectures, work up the
nerve to sit in his or her row and the
rest is History 366.
Our choice of course, is the
graveyard on Geddes. Come on, be a
little selective. Everybody goes to
class.

... interesting locales for that very
special first encounter. Your winning
vote was for an anonymous restau-
rant. Come on folks. The Earle and
Steve's Lunch are both restaurants.
The Fleming building and the Hands
On museum were runners up. All the
so-called nature lovers voted for the
Arb. We prefer the graveyard on
Geddes.-
Place for a first screw:
The immediate aftermath of the
first date. Remnants of Rick's vodka

jello slams are still inspiring those
who cast the winning vote for Rick's
bathroom. The academicians who
met in class prefer to do it in the li-
brary stacks. The Dude is lurking
Oedipally in some people's psyches,
because the Fleming Building and
Duderstadt's house were popular
choices for gettin' down and dirty.
Our vote: the graveyard on Geddes.
