Hello! I’m Shelley Duvall.

When the internet was created, those involved most likely imagined a vast network where ideas could be shared across great expanses. Where great minds could come together to work on the most fundamental questions of human existence. Instead, here’s a video of Shelley Duvall, star of The Shining, introducing herself in almost the exact same way twenty four times. It is both maddening and hypnotic. Gaze upon its banal majesty and weep for what might have been.

(Also, let me just say, that this is, perhaps, the most terrifying thing one could hear upon entering a graveyard.)

    Well that would explain why Kubrick put her in The Shining. I would think being able to do the exact same thing the exact same way forty or fifty times would have come in handy for his directing.

    Fairy Tale Theater! The episodes were just as weird, if not weirder than the intros. Young Susan Saradon, Billy Crystal, Jeff Goldblum and Robin Williams reenacting all your favorite Grimm tales.

    Molly – I have to admit, I did not know about Faerie Tale Theatre, but after reading the Wikipedia page, I really want to watch it.

    Where is the remix song version of “Hello, I’m Shelly Duvall”? Because that would be awesome. I lament my lack of skill in this department.
