Little Switzerland of the Ozarks??

Nice Job Vittles :)

John said...

Hate to break it to you but Ouray, CO is the Switzerland of America. What now, Eureka Springs?

bortosaurus said...

I didn't know Switzerland was fond of God, giant gorilla statues, and bluegrass clowns.

Heather said...

Well, they got one thing right: I always imagine God with impressive backlighting.

Digeridude said...

Thirty foot gorillas used to exist.

Anyone notice the Lawn Jockey in the yard as the depopulated tram rolls down the street in the beginning?

Yep, this is Arkansas all right.

WOW! I love the video clip, Eureka Springs!!!

Fat 'n Boring said...

Ah, so *that's* how the dinosaurs got extinct. They were eaten up by obese Ozark grannies in dewdrop glasses.

I wish God would bless me with the world of miniatures.

See the tigers in their natural, currogated-metal-and-wire-mesh-cage habitat.

Yeehaw! Country music, country an western music.. an God!

Though I have to admit that outdoor chapel thingy was pretty awesome looking.

I was sold until they told me I had to lug my VCR up into the Ozarks.

filmscience said...

I'm going to take a bold stand here and say I think this might be the best editing of the most terrible video I have seen yet.

Bravo, I say. Top notch.

Showbiz!

That zookeeper was obviously beaten and raped in her youth.

skeptifem said...

Wow, I have never laughed so hard on EIT as when they said "God has truly blessed the Ozarks, with the wonderful museum of miniatures"

Holy shit. I bet the narrator had to take a few cracks at that one before it sounded sincere.

I was positive that it was a swingers resort until they started talking about godjesus.

Then I got all confused when they put dinosaurs in the mix.

does this town contain any backwards talking midgets from another dimension?

been to eureka many times. Mayor was on cover of high times magazine one year!

very eccentric part of the world. nowhere else like it.

If you live close enough, I would definitely visit Eureka Springs if I were you. In their defense, the downtown area is actually pretty neat. And it's like the one place in Arkansas where white trash and hippie new agers co-exist peacefully. Like the other guy commented, it is definitely very eccentric.

I'm screening this clip at my wedding. God bless EIT.

"And it's like the one place in Arkansas where white trash and hippie new agers co-exist peacefully." I live in Fayetteville and it's the same way, at least in my experience.

Eureka Springs was cool, the one time I visited to see the Passion Play shown in the video. The bit they show with Jesus is actually the climax of the play; the audience went totally wild.

I still need to revisit to see the caves, dinosaurs, and Turpentine Creek (the big cats reserve).

Was this edited with a chainsaw? I mean at least attempt to get a decent cut or try again. I've seen 5th graders do a better job.

Yonder Vittles said...

as a matter of fact i only use period hand tools to do my cutting

Ironically, ES is the gay capital of Arkansas, my home state. I wonder why they didn't mention that in the promo vid?

wait, where are the gays in this video??? ES is the gay mecca of Arkansas, even know some folks who drive into ES from Tulsa just to go to a men-only resort there. I have always loved ES, and this video shows why. Pigeon Forge and ES are my favorite cities....they are living museums of bad taste and Southern kookiness. Back to the video, I don't know about you, but when the man with the sexy stache started to take his tie and coat off, i got sort of turned on...

This feed runs 24/7 on the Eureka Pubic Access. It probably didn't take much imagination or editing to put this piece together.

I've become frozen in attitude.
