Gary’s Garden: Episode 2 – Porn & Cigarettes

Need to watch the first short episode of Gary’s Garden?

Here’s “Pot Rot” and a brief review.

Gary's Garden

Review:

Very different from the first episode, “Porn & Cigarettes” opened with a shameless Mormon zinger. Gary’s dream in the beginning was fantastic. Then, the episode started to dip into the realm of “what the…?” I’m not quite sure what it was that I just watched . . . I mean, obviously, it was a musical number sung by a former-Mormon turned lecherous undead-Sunflower guy visually accompanied by an interesting but nonetheless well-done montage. The lyrics were humorous but I had to re-watch it to fully understand what he was singing – at times his voice seemed drowned out by the score. Still, the gist of the second episode was successfully conveyed. This episode doesn’t feel like a musical in the traditional sense, rather it works as a tripped-out, psychedelic, music video . . . that’s off the wall and sometimes just straight up random ridiculousness. I wanted more from it, though.

Porn & Cigarettes (episode 2)

“Porn & Cigarettes” are the only suitable fertilizers for an undead former-­‐Mormon virgin plant boy. (This episode is presented as a musical.)
Eazy-­E…

(No, not the Godfather of Gangster Rap) Gary’s Garden features the grizzled narration of “Eazy-E.” Producers Ben Hethcoat and Eric Ekman spent nearly three hours in a cigarette smoke-filled white sedan recording miscellaneous audio from the homeless man. Highlights from the Eazy-­E recording session will be released later.

“We couldn’t afford a professional, so we turned to the streets of Echo Park and were fortunate to find the amazingly appropriate voice of Eazy-­E.” –Eric Ekman

“He took direction really well; it was surprisingly ‘eazy’ to work with him.” – Ben Hethcoat
