Tales of A Rat Fink

The Beatnik Bandit #2 designed by Ed "Big Daddy" Roth.
We watched Ron Mann's film Tales of A Rat Fink this past weekend and what a great movie. I'm a bit of a fan of Ron Mann's even went to a premiere party in New York City in the 80's for his Comic Book Confidential at a shindig in MARRS nightclub. Did you know that Ed Roth used to paint custom cars and one day he drew some pics on his t-shirt. The rest is a cultural shift that you are probably reflecting right now...that is if you have anything on the front of your t-shirt. It was "Big Daddy's" idea. He hated Mickey Mouse and drew the Rat Fink. Like wow.

What beautiful car art. Ha, rats are coming up all over the place. The other night Psycho came running in the house with a rat clutched firmly in his sharp cat teeth. That was an adventure getting cat and rat out of house. Then we viewed Ratatoullie. Hope I spelling it right - and laughed and laughed and laughed our way through it. Now the cool green rat - this guy is pretty talented, isn't he?
