Facial Hair Friday, Week 6

25 Sep

Six weeks of Facial Hair Friday!  How crazy is that?  Well, to celebrate I’ve decided to show you a picture of one of my favorite directors of all time.  He hasn’t done anything in a while, but that has apparently given him the time to grow one of the most impressive beards I’ve ever seen.bakshi

Mr. Ralph Bakshi.  One of the great innovators of animation, Ralph Bakshi steadfastly refused to make the same cartoons as everyone else.  He was making his own animation in a time when the only cartoons coming out were from Disney or Warner Brothers.  This is the man that brought us Wizards, The Lord of the Rings, Fritz the Cat, the always controversial Coonskin, and many others.  This is a man referenced frequently by Quentin Tarantino, The RZA, and others.  And if you know me, then you know how highly I value those two men’s opinions.  And if you know me, then you know how highly you should value my opinion.  Go buy something by this man.  But don’t start with Cool World, that is strictly for the Bakshi fan.

longing for the day Coonskin is re-released on dvd,
