Stop Motion: Western Spagetti

(via Andrew Sullivan, who calls it a Mental Health Break. And it is. I could watch this over and over.)

More about the filmmaker, Adam Pesapane, at the EatPes website, and from a recent article in Animation Magazine

The concept was pretty simple: It’s the way I make spaghetti. The recipe is legit. I just decided to substitute objects for the food elements. In many of my films I use foods as other things—e.g. popcorn as explosions or peanuts as crying babies. I thought it would be interesting to totally flip this and make a film where everyday objects stand in for the food, such as rubber bands for spaghetti, post-it notes for butter, bubble wrap for boiling water.
