Fat Fat And All That

B: ROX #90 is extreme in at least four ways.

At over an hour, it is the longest episode in the series to date.

It also has the shortest title: “Fat.”

This show covers more geographical area than ever before, with scenes shot in three states and Taiwan.

It took longer to make this show than any program we've done so far. J started shooting in February of 2003, and I finished editing in April of 2004. But unlike ROX #87, which also took over a year to produce, it's my belief that all the extra time that went into the show actually made it better.

ROX #90 Review

T Bill: “Fat” is funky and leisurely paced much like a Parliament record from the 1970's.

My favorite part may have been the visit to St.Roch's chapel and cemetery in New Orleans. Eyeballs on a plate is an image I won't soon forget. It still all remains connected together with a central theme reinforcing the idea of a heavy concept album. This could well be ROX's Sgt.Pepper.

Well maybe you should be able to get it there. Shit I don't know.

Anyway the point is that yet again J and B tirelessly take you just beyond the limit of normally acceptable humor to make you say “Oh my god!”.

You think I'm just shamelessly plugging this so that more... [More...]

Ski Lift
In ROX #90, we featured a snippet of video shot from this ski lift somewhere in Montana, for no justifiable reason other than that it looks cool.

St. Roch Statue
Saint Roch is the patron saint of dogs and invalids. He's also the patron of bachelors, surgeons and tile-makers. Not to mention diseased cattle.

J Breath
J's alcohol-laden breath melts the camera lens.
