In the summer of 1970, Pittsburgh Pirates right-hander Dock Ellis' tossed a no-hitter in a 2-0 victory over the San Diego Padres. But according to Ellis, the real feat wasn't silencing the Padres' bats; it was doing so while under the influence of LSD. If you're looking for footage of the fabled game, you're not going to find it — no tape has ever surfaced, and Major League Baseball hasn't rushed to dig through its archives for documentation of the psychedelic affair. But animator James Blagden has created something arguably better: a black-and-white short film to accompany Ellis' own account — taken from a 2008 interview with American Public Media — of his trippy day on the mound.
The video's minimalism makes way for Ellis' rich retelling of the story. The middling hurler — whose career record stands at 138-119 — claims he dropped acid not knowing it was a game day, and took the hill despite being "high as a Georgia pine." He tells viewers about imagining Jimi Hendrix in the batter's box, Richard Nixon calling balls and strikes and coping with a ball that constantly shifted in size. But despite these drug-induced hallucinations (and eight walks), Ellis stifled the Padres, striking out six. It may not be an achievement Major League Baseball is eager to commemorate, but Ellis would likely find Blagden's cartoon tribute enough. He died in 2008, after retiring from the major leagues to become a career drug counselor in Los Angeles.

Your tail wagged at me. - m4w - 35 (plaza terrace)
Everybody here's the situation last Friday. I see this girl walking her 2 dogs and OMG does she have a nice tail on her. It's not to big but man does it have shape. She's got those kind of boobs that bounce when she walks. I am mesmerized and everything just went to slow motion. I get lost to where I am going, you made me dizzy. Well that worked out well because of being lost I bump into you to again but EVEN closer, niceeee. You bent over to pet your dog, one small and the other taller both white. Nice hot pink panties BTW. I can only manage small talk, so I say " What kind of dog is the taller one?" I don't know what the "f" you said, I just wanted more time to drink you in. It worked. I said I liked the taller one because of his pointy ears. Dam baby you are H-O-T. I am chocolate and you are vanilla. Let's swirl together.

Girl in white skirt at chopstix last night - m4w - 24 (Gainesville)
You were so hot waving your arms around in a drunken frenzy. You were the bell of the ball in your tacky knee high boots. The cellulite hanging out from beneath your slightly stained white one piece way-too-shirt skirt was so arousing I found that I had to put down my Philadelphia hand roll and go squeeze one off in the bathroom. I was impressed with your drinking most of all! When I left you were on martini number 5, and by the looks of it, had no interest in calling it quits. However, whoever you were there with was not impressed with your antics. Idk if thats your husband (saw a ring on his finger), or you're his mistress, but as I mentioned, he was less than thrilled to be the object of your drunken pawing and flailing. So, since he wasn't interested, I am! I'd love to eat your stretch mark covered ass and pull your greasy short hair. I hope to hear from you!

To the girl I shagged last night - m4w - 26 (Awesomeland)
You're welcome. I know that was quite the experience for you, despite either of us remembering one another's names. What are names anyway, besides things to get wrong in the throws of passion? In any case, you experienced quite the treat last night and I just wanted to give you the opportunity to thank me for it. That is, assuming you have enough manners to do so (however judging by your demeanor in the boudoir, I'm skeptical as the the success rate of this endeavor). I'd also like to apologize. I know that no other suitor from this point forward will be able to properly slake your lust. This bittersweet realization comes as no shock to me, and while it pains me to have imparted such a burden upon you, I feel it will be a blessing in disguise for years to come as you fumble through whatever inept male stable you regularly keep to.
P.S. Feel free to leave me your phone number. I'd love to forget to call you later.

Hipster Boys Grocery Shopping - w4m (Lake Ella Publix)
I saw you guys buying milk and it looked like you guys cook and bake. I love indie boys who love to bake. One of you is Asian and you dress really trendy and the blonde one had a camera sting hanging from his back pocket. If you're not an international gay couple me and my friend would love to go to greenway and listen to some Paul baribou with you guys. Tell me what you were buying so I can know that it's you.

Dude that works at Hot Topic - w4m (The Farside)
dear girl who is now apparently dating the generically decent looking hot topic bro with a weak ass chest piece, if you are a decent girl who is looking for a mildly healthy relationship, RUN. with your little post you have brought on your own impending doom. homeboy is a manipulative liar. give him an inch and he'll take a mile. he hits on any mildly alt chick with legs. his decent beard hides a baby face that matches his maturity level. oh and his metal is total weak sauce.

Bullwinkles - w4m - 22 (Tally)
We started talking about spring break and our europe trips. You were a cool dude with a cool name, Bosco. Too bad my friends were leaving and I had to go with them. :( We never exchanged numbers. Not sure if I you read these things but what the was worth a try.

** Chuck&Cheese** - m4w - 39 (OP, FL)
I hope you remember but I was staring at you on this past Friday at Chuck&Cheese. It was between 7pm through 9pm. You were wearing a jean with a white t-shirt with a beautiful long curly hair. You were with your kid. And you have this SEXY look. If you know who you are contact me. I would love to meet u.

The girl in my dream last night - m4w - 25
We were at some kind of movie or something, but for some reason the seats were reclined about 45 degrees. We ended up a lot closer than the seats would normally be and started playing finger footsie and holding hands. I told you you were really hot, and you said, "So are you." Then you went from holding my hand to my crotch. You had blonde hair and had that cute/hot thing going on. Sorry this is so vague -- it was a dream, after all, and quite regrettably, I believe I woke up when you started fondling me. Anyway, if you see this and still wanna hook up, I'll probably be going to bed tonight around 11:30-12, and REM should follow 4-5 hours later.

Nice Butt Krishna lunch - m4w
Hey girl i saw you at krishna lunch, dark hair, in the black leggings, with a real nice butt. a big old beard tickler! a real lip dribbler! you could get into a lot of trouble with a butt like that. I mean to say that is a lot of trouble going on back there. that butt belongs in the parthenon or at least on the mudflaps of a volvo tractor trailer! hooo man, do I get worked up. just cant control myself, thinking how does it jiggle!

PS dont let this old crocodile get a grip on that butt cause I wont ever let go!!! signed,Fatty Beltbuckle, lover of posteriors, derrieres, and big old nasty ghetto ass drippers

Learning is fun

In class the other day, our assignment was to take an old graphic and learn how to retrace it in Illustrator. Thus enabling us to color in the vector lines. We also had to hand draw a border and scan that into a vector. Finally adding a title to the whole thing. I present to you Slasher, a recreation of an old Jim Phillips graphic.

I'm looking for the Birthday Boy who Just turned 23! You were celebrating at the Sharab Lounge upstairs. You were wearing a blue shirt, and I had on a cute black and white dress! The girl you had with you brought me over to give you a dance. I was wearing a penis name-tag that read Virgin. My friends made me leave before I could get your number. You were hot. Maybe we can get to know each other?
