Cruikshank later created animation sequences for Sesame Street,
the film Ruthless People (1986) and the Cartoon Land sequence in
Twilight Zone: The Movie (1983) film, another truly strange exchange of visual ideas.
A precursor to the film, Sally created the characters Quasi & Anita in her first panel of the only comic strip she every published in 1975."

made me think of another psychedelic film clip of a song called Chocolate Cake.
While Leger didn't hang himself, he did kill himself whether it was accidental, or not.

David Carradine out of the movie Q the Winged Serpent hung himself, too.
Controversies after death
Another Mayan legend is Ixtab
"Ixtab (Mayan pronunciation: [iʃˈtaɓ]) or Rope Woman was the Yucatec Mayan goddess of suicide according to Diego de Landa.
In Yucatec society, suicide, especially suicide by hanging, was under circumstances considered an honorable way to die.
Ixtab would accompany such suicides to paradise
(thus playing the role of a psychopomp).
Here, joined by people who died as soldiers or as sacrificial victims, by women who died in childbirth and by members of the priesthood, they enjoyed a delectable existence rewarded with delicious food and drink and resting under the shade of a pleasant tree, Yaxche, free from all want.

Since it occurs in a section devoted to eclipses of sun and moon, it may have been used to symbolize a lunar eclipse and its dire consequences for women, especially pregnant ones: Lunar eclipses exposed their unborn children to the risks of deformation and death.
No other pictures possibly representing Ixtab are known."

"I heard this song on Bob Dylan's Theme Time Radio Show and just had to animate to it.
The lyrics were a bit odd when I really listened to them, but the rhythm was a treat."
I have a copy of the above CD and I saw Bob Dylan play the
Byron Bay Bluesfest, where their mascot was a night owl.

"Note: see all that mud.It cost me a pair of shoes.
When I tried to pull my muddy shoes off,without undoing the laces,I ripped the sole off one,and ended up throwing them in the bin.
But they were my oldest pair,and I got some good mileage out of 'em...even though their sole/soul departed on the night ;- )"

"You should see the beautiful cells that were painted for this cartoon hell sequence in the movie TWILIGHT ZONE.
The girl in the parochial school uniform is Nancy Cartwright,
voice of Bart Simpson!
This segment was directed by Joe Dante."

"A spooky story about Whinsey and opossums in an old hotel."
"I designed and directed these main titles in 1987.
They were done at Playhouse Pictures in Hollywood.
A couple of years ago I was driving with the radio on, and I heard Mick Jagger talking about how he disliked them.
He sings the title song.
Sally says -
"An airport story I wrote long before "Snakes on a Plane."
For fast readers only.
This used to be on my site as gif animation, now set to music in Flash.
With Anita, Whinsey, and Mr. Pickles."
