Fish Heads (1980) [Apr. 19th, 2007|03:00 pm]

[Special Music |Barnes & Barnes - Fish Heads]

I remember, as a child, watching this video on MTV. I caught the tail end of this short film / video. I thought it ruled. Never did I see this video after that moment.

When I was almost of high school age, my friend Brad and I were fishing on the lake near my grandfather's cottage. We caught fish. We brought them to my grandfather to clean, since he could prepare the fish more efficiently than we could. We watched him behead the fish. As he began to de-scale the fish, we took the fish heads and began to play with them.

One fish head considerably dwarfed the size of the other fish head. The beheaded fish heads also continued to open and close their mouths at us repeatedly. The nerves continued to fire for some minutes, mouths opening, closing, opening. At one point, we stuck the little fish head into the mouth of the big fish head. We watched, with glee, plus many chuckles, as the big fish head swallowed the little fish head. Out the little fish head came from the back of the big fish head, through the opening where the throat would continue. We continued to feed the little fish head to the big fish head until the nerves stopped function.

Today, I found the Barnes & Barnes short film / video that I had caught a glimpse.

Thank you, Barnes & Barnes.

Fish heads, fish heads
Roly-poly fish heads
Fish heads, fish heads
Eat them up, yum!

Bahahaha!!! Oh wow, I remember that song from a million years ago also. I think I first saw it on an episode of Beavis and Butthead though. Thanks for posting!

Re: wow...

I love YouTube. All the stuff I saw maybe less than a handful of times in the past, just there, waiting to reconnect the dots.

Unsure of how familiar you are with my Bill Paxton appreciation . . .

I didn't realize that was Bill in the Fish Heads video. That was real early Bill Paxton, and the vid's blurry, so I had no idea until I checked the IMDB listing.

Also, Fish Heads feels very similar in a couple of respects to the relatively unknown Nirvana track, "Beans."
