Vincent - Tim Burton 1982
First Burton's short film, 1982
Vincent Malloy is seven years old
He's always polite and does what he's told
For a boy his age, he's considerate and nice
But he wants to be just like Vincent Price
He doesn't mind living with his sister, dog and cats
Though he'd rather share a home with spiders and bats
There he could reflect on the horrors he's invented
And wander dark hallways, alone and tormented
Vincent is nice when his aunt comes to see him
But imagines dipping her in wax for his wax museum...
Please stop using the word existential the wrong way. Especially you broadcast commentators and op ed writers trying to sound intellectual.
It doesn't mean deep, meaningful, or really important.
-- Sam Smith
Wikipedia: A central proposition of existentialism is that existence precedes essence, which means that the actual life of the individual is what constitutes what could be called his or her "essence" instead of there being a predetermined essence that defines what it is to be a human. Thus, the human beings – through their own consciousness – create their own values and determine a meaning to their life.
...The phrase should be taken to say that the person is
(1) defined only insofar as he or she acts and
(2) that he or she is responsible for his or her actions.
For example, someone who acts cruelly towards other people is,
by that act, defined as a cruel person.
Furthermore, by this action of cruelty such persons are themselves responsible for their new identity (a cruel person).
This is as opposed to their genes, or 'human nature', bearing the blame.
As Sartre puts it in his Existentialism is a Humanism:
"man first of all exists, encounters himself,
surges up in the world – and defines himself afterwards."
Of course, the more positive, therapeutic aspect of this is also implied: A person can choose to act in a different way, and to be a good person instead of a cruel person.
Here it is also clear that since humans can choose to be either cruel or good, they are, in fact, neither of these things essentially.

Attack of the Chickens
He thought it was just a harmless shortcut,
but how was he to know what lurked
in the Bingham's backyard of death.
You will never look at chickens the same way again. Bock, Bock...
Love the idea and the execution and the music;
... an alternative to the Gunfight at the OK Corral,
but with way more drama.

the adventures and misadventures

while also studying at the famed improvisational comedy workshops of Second City.

The Stay Puft Marshmallow Man stomping
through New York
is one of the most memorable scenes in movie history.
Go behind the scenes of Ghostbusters,
and see how the gooiest movie
got on the road to its rampage. ..
The movie wouldn’t be what it is
if Gozer’s final form weren’t a puffy sugary sailor man,
but the journey from concept to the sticky final product
was a long one.
Almost everyone involved had doubts
about audiences buying into a killer marshmallow monster.
We’ll take you through this scene, including the story,
the effects, stunts, and pyrotechnics
(figurative and literal) that brought the Stay Puft Marshmallow man
