International man of misery and jerk of all trades Adam Goldberg takes on the poem rants of reluctant icon and failed visionary John Tottenham. These are a trilogy of short filmic adaptations, illustrations of Mr. Tottenham's poems which most often chronicle his inability to write, long naps, and the ever encroaching day of his demise.

Mr. Goldberg, who can relate, shot these on 16mm and slide film over the course of 3 days. And then procrastinated their editing for several weeks.

The codec seems to have degenerated on this site over time corrupting the 16mm with unsavory digital pollution. Neither can be bothered to do anything about it.
