Movie info:

Head Trip
A documentary film by John Law and Flecher Fleudujon
Produced by Central Services and Truth Serum Productions
In affiliation with Laughing Squid .

This film chronicles the journey of the Bay Area's iconic "Doggie
Diner Heads" on a singular cross-country trek to New York City. Just as the bombs started falling on Baghdad in early 2003, some of San Francisco most eccentric performers and whimsical characters
(Bishop Joey/Ed Holmes, Steven Raspa, Blake More, Jarico Reese, etc.) set out for New York City accompanied by three ten foot tall, three hundred pound fiberglas Dachshund Heads.

Careening across America, the crew visits the Grand Canyon, Graceland, the Gateway Arch, Mt. Rushmore, the Washington Monument and many other celebrated roadside attractions along the way. Hauled in tow behind the SF Cyclecide Bike Rodeo's 1966 Gillig Autobus, the Doggies encounter the spirit of America during a confusing period. Roadside encounters
with citizens and rendezvous with eccentric artist comrades through out the "Middle" States are the heart of this journey.

Head Trip is narrated by KPFA radio personality, cartoonist, erudite master of ceremonies, high priest of the Church of the SubGenius and national treasure Hal (Dr. Howlin Owl) Robins.

Interview subjects include: cartoonist Bill Griffith (Zippy the Pinhead), Ron Turner (Last Gasp Comix), Harold Bachman (designer of the Doggie motif in the 1950's) Cyclecide impresario Jarico Reese, and tough guy screenwriter & novelist Floyd Salas.

Music by: The Billy Nayer Show, Savage Republic, Brian Jonestown Massacre, Chicken John Rinaldi, Psychic TV, Phat Mandee, Sprocket Ensemble, The Phenomenauts, The Yard Dogs Roadshow, Nervous Cabaret, Polkacide, Kathy McKarty (singing Daniel Johnson,) Los Banos and Three Day Stubble.
