SKATE BITCHES

Posted by on Tue, Jun 19, 2012 at 12:57 PM

I've long maintained that the best thing in the world is Danny Plotnick's 1986 short film "Skate Witches":

That's why its Australian DIY descendent “Skate Bitches” won me over; it's equal parts "Skate Witches" and Ladies and Gentlemen: the Fabulous Stains. Seventeen ramshackle minutes of feminist punk (“I bet she doesn’t even know who Valerie Solanas is”) and dialogue taken straight from Smashing Pumpkins and TLC lyrics. Also, the director Samuel Shanahoy used two songs from NW bands Pony Time and RVIVR!

I've always loved Skate Witches more than I can describe with words.

Skate BITCHES as soon as I have a free 17 minutes. There better be rats!

Hell yea there's definitely big dedication to rats. I was sitting by Samuel at a showing of this at Lovetunnel, and I am certain Samuel was shy at the Jr. Rat Queenie scene but such a wicked film. I felt so proud to be there :)
