mentioned on the home page, here is the dancing foetus with maracas!
curious as to why exactly I created a dancing foetus with maracas
(not that these things necessarily require explanation), let me
take you back to an evening in 2009...
watching the film '4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days', along with my
boyfriend at the time; Jamie. For those unfamiliar with it, it's
a Romanian film about illegal abortion, so nice and romantic! Anyway,
as you can probably imagine, it's quite a bleak and emotive film,
so imagine our surprise when the closing credits suddenly erupted
with this jingly jangly, inappropriately-cheerful music. It wasn't
the Mexican Hat Dance (the music I've used above), but it was close
enough! Jamie joked that there should be some kind of image of a
foetus dancing with maracas. I said how I was going to make one.
He quite likely assumed that I was also joking, but he was off somewhere
that coming weekend, so I found myself at home, alone, with my computer
and the notion of a dancing Mexican foetus in my head - how could
I not create the above abomination? It's what everyone
would have done in that situation, no? No?! Oh.
