How Are You I'm Fine Thanks: Apparently there’s a new app for shooting stop-motion Lego films?...
Making stop-motion Lego films was one of THE most fun things I ever did as a child. I really want to find them again. They were magnificent.
The first one was a collaboration between myself and my siblings. It involved a woman stopping to pet a kitten, and then getting brutally eaten by a dinosaur (I supplied the anguished screams), and her skeleton getting spit out afterwards. We were so proud when we showed it to our parents.
After that I did a series of short movies about a superhero I named “Swamp Woman,” whose sole power was to…rise out of the swamp. Like, she had an apartment under the swamp, and she would rise out of it at the beginning of every episode. A voice would say “Swamp Woman riiiises out of the swamp!” First her hat would appear, then her head, then her torso, then her legs, and then her cape would flap in the wind a few times. Then she would take public transportation into the city where she would fight crime in a very normal way (mostly by standing in front of criminals and saying STOP). She had a husband named Swamp Man who never left the house, and a cat named Kitty Baby who was secretly a criminal.
Man, I should adapt that into a feature comic or something. Swamp Woman. Pure gold. Call me, Marvel.
