Steve's Week Of Free Movies: Part 2 ...

I've only had part one up on here for about two or three hours and yet I'm already jumping right in with YET ANOTHER free movie because that's how I roll.

... and also one of the rims on one of my tires on my car cracked and popped the tire, and I can't drive 45minutes to my work on a small, dinky little spare, so I'm pretty much on house arrest for the weekend.

Bored, is what I'm saying.

So lets all watch some movies together ...

"Wesley Willis (May 31, 1963 – August 21, 2003) was an American singer-songwriter and visual artist from Chicago. Diagnosed with chronic schizophrenia in 1989, Willis began a career as an underground singer-songwriter in the outsider music tradition, with songs featuring his bizarre, humorous and often obscene lyrics sung over the auto accompaniment feature on his Technics KN electronic keyboard.

Willis gained an enormous cult following in the 1990s, mainly upon the release of Greatest Hits in 1995 on the Alternative Tentacles label. The album was released at the urging of punk rock pioneer Jello Biafra who compiled its tracklist. In addition to a large body of solo musical work, Willis fronted his own punk rock band, the Wesley Willis Fiasco. He was also a visual artist long before his forays into music, producing hundreds of intricate, unusual, colored ink-pen drawings, most of them of Chicago streetscapes and CTA buses."

"In 2008, the documentary film Wesley Willis's Joy Rides made its public debut at the Slamdance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. The film comprises footage of Willis collected by the filmmakers over a period of five years, interviews of family and friends after Willis's death, and animations created from his artwork. Wesley Willis’s Joy Rides won the Gold Hugo for the Chicago Award at the 2008 Chicago International Film Festival. It has since been shown at Noise Pop Film Festival, Hot Docs, SXSW, and The Starz Denver Film Festival."

My guest post on GUITARDEDBLOG about my personal experience meeting (and headbutting) Wesley Willis - a good read!!!

So here you go - the full Wesley Willis documentary, along with some music videos, movie previews, vintage drive-in ads, and the usual craziness.

Enjoy ...
