No Mas: Dock Ellis & The LSD No-No by James Blagden

In celebration of the greatest athletic achievement by a man on a psychedelic journey, No Mas and artist James Blagden proudly present the animated tale of Dock Ellis’ legendary LSD no-hitter. In the past few years weve heard all too much about performance enhancing drugs from greenies to tetrahydrogestrinone, and not enough about performance inhibiting drugs. If our evaluation of the records of athletes like Mark McGwire, Roger Clemens, Marion Jones, and Barry Bonds needs to be revised downwards with an asterisk, we submit that that Dock Ellis record deserves a giant exclamation point. Of the 263 no-hitters ever thrown in the Big Leagues, we can only guess how many were aided by steroids, but we can say without question that only one was ever thrown on acid.

Sadly, the great Dock Ellis died last December at 63. A year before, radio producers Donnell Alexander and Neille Ilel, had recorded an interview with Ellis in which the former Pirate right hander gave a moment by moment account of June 12, 1970, the day he no-hit the San Diego Padres. Alexander and Ilels original four minute piece appeared March 29, 2008 on NPRs Weekend America. When we stumbled across that piece this past June, Blagden and Isenberg were inspired to create a short animated film around the original audio.

Epuron - The Power of Wind

The wind as Harvey, Snuffleupagus, and the invisible it. I have always had a tendency to anthropomorphize everything. Still today I unconsciously think silverware have personalities. I’ll catch myself– especially when they won’t put themselves away in the drawer. This may have started sometime around seeing the film ‘The Red balloon’ as a tot. Pascal a little boy and his friend the red balloon wander the streets of Paris. This commercial leaves me with a similar feeling– that is sad, funny and poetic.

[Aside: People, when they first see this almost always ask is he real? When I saw this I was astounded at the life like CG character animation, but it turns he is real.]
