but i’m a creep, i’m a weirdo – r head

Courtesy of a post by d’log, here’s a site for interesting short films, with a tendency towards the unusual. The site’s called Small and Creepy Films. I recommend you look at the S&C Shorts page, and check out Spegelbarn, Dark Side of the Morning, and My Mum the Wrestler. Elephant Girl is good too, with overtones of Street of Crocodiles by the Brothers Quay.
