Best. Machinima. Ever.


I would have added captions, though. For me, Carroll's words are designed to be seen (read), not only heard.

Never mind that. WOW !!

Troy McLuhan

He said, "After being known mostly for humor, spoofs, and fashion (and apparently having a cute avatar) I finally attempted something serious."

I had to smile reading that, because when Carroll wrote Jabberwocky, he was purposefully trying to write a non-serious example of bad poetry.

Ironically, it's so bad it's memorable, and therefore, in a sense, good. LOL

Stephen Bentham

Which is why it was perfect! :P

Andrek Lowell

Wonderful machinima, loved it. Glad to of created a forest you could deem worthy of such a brilliant video.

I went to Project Gutenberg to hear the original audio recording (sans music) and found that they have over 30 recordings of Jabberwocky, including a great Brooklyn version! See http://bit.ly/FZpRX

Hamlet Au

Heh, that's a good one, Troy. You could use it to make another machinima where Jabberwocky gets whacked by the mob.

Stephen Bentham

lmao... I came really close to using either the Brooklyn one or the other one by the same guy and making a quirkier/light-hearted version.

QiQi Michigan

Wow, Stephen. It's a wonderful collaboration with Caliah. I was sorry to see you leave, your plurk posts were some of the rare insightful / serious ones. But as a farewell shot, this machinima takes the cake.

Barney Boomslang

Man, it's so great to see my gargoyle in that machinima. Made me smile big :)
