Squirrel Nutz

John P. McCann has posted a single-panel preview from a storyboard that has been worked up for an animation project that Tom Ruegger has going based on an improv recording session between McCann and Paul Rugg. John describes the scene as "two squirrels whose argument on nuts soars into philosophic realms before descending to an earthier plane."

Alas, I don't think the squirrels mention the sport of curling at all.

John also recently posted his first video, which is suitably weird. I think I agree that it somehow is reminiscent of Eddie Fitzgerald's videos. It also reminds me of that audio clip I've heard of a pre-Muppets Jim Henson taking a walk through his own mind ("I have evil thoughts, too. I think everybody does. Hey, you wanna know my evil thoughts?").
