The Residents - One Minute Movies

You want bad dreams? Just play The Residents' original 4 Minute Videos a couple of times before you go to bed. The weird thing about it is that the images presented here are actually quite humorous and the endlessly clever combinations between sounds, lyrics and visual setups never fail to make me smile. That said, the revolving pig, the mantis-like creature, the dancing eyeball babies, the man stuck on the wall, come on, they're all disturbing as hell. Of course, The Residents made a career by combining strange, funny and scarry stuff, and if you need proof, check out their Demons Dance Alone LP from 2002 (and don't be turned off by the terrible cover art).
