Crazed 20-Minute Cut-Up Re-Edit of “Blade Runner” #cyberpunk

I love this “radical edit” of Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner where the creator, filmmaker Leon Chase, has mixed in scenes of the principle actors from other films and characters from additional films that the actors also appeared in (or are associated with).

In this bizarre re-imagining of the film, Gene Hackman (who was in The Conversation, alongside Harrison Ford), John Belushi (from The Blues Brothers, which co-starred Carrie Fisher, who co-starred with Ford in Star Wars), and Steve Martin (from The Jerk, which also starred M. Emmet Walsh, Deckard’s boss in Blade Runner), are here recast as the Replicants. Oh, and also Greedo from Star Wars.

One especially fun thing about this re-edit is that it’s a cinematic cut-up and the Scott film title Blade Runner was taken from a William Burroughs book of the same name (which bears no relationship to the film). And, of course, Burroughs is known for the Burroughsian text cut-up technique. Holy looping referentiality, Batman!

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
