Black Dynamite: a homage to Blaxploitation on Adult Swim

Linus Boman Reader Find

By Linus Boman in Video on Wednesday 29 August 2012

If you missed Michael Jai White’s pitch-perfect homage to the Blaxploitation genre in 2009, you done messed up you jive motherfucka! Don’t make the same mistake twice. Now White has teamed up with some key producers from the acclaimed animated series Boondocks to bring this absurdist universe to the small screen. With twisting plots centred around pop-culture icons like Michael Jackson, OJ Simpson and Richard Prior, this shit is more addictive than a smack epidemic at an orphanage. You dig?

The Adult Swim issue of Juxtapoz Magazine

Jessica Birkett Reader Find

By Jessica Birkett in New Design on Thursday 21 June 2012

Despite the recent eclipse and the passing of Venus across the sun, there’s been no recent cosmic event quite as spectacular as the Adult Swim issue of Juxtapoz magazine, hosting Kevin Kirkpatrick’s hyper-realistic bust of Carl Brutananadilewski from Aqua Teen Hunger Force, following a nostalgic and booming response to his Beavis and Butthead.

Superjail! cartoon series on Adult Swim

Matt Bauer Reader Find

By Matt Bauer in Video on Thursday 26 May 2011

I fell in love with Superjail from episode one and I was worried that there might not be a season 2. But it’s back! It’s probably not safe for work, has endless super graphic violence (though cartoon), and sometimes it’s just plain wrong. If you crossed the HBO series Oz with a Bosch painting and a Trapper Keeper bursting with drawings of unicorns and dragons and robots, that would be kind of something like Superjail!

Quandulums JukeBox: a mini-animation by Steve Piro

William Vale Reader Find

By William Vale in Video on Wednesday 7 August 2013

This is what happens when you take either too many drugs, or possibly not enough. Piro’s collection of ‘out there’ wacky mini animated vignettes is clearly the markings of a creative madman. You can’t help but laugh at the absurdity and rawness of each video. If AquaTeen and Monty Python had a kid, you might […]

Animated video for Holy Ghost song Some Children

Jeff Katz Reader Find

By Jeff Katz in New Music on Monday 22 August 2011

Lilfuchs has a unique, psychedelic style to his animations where drawings seamlessly morph into one another. When an artist of this creative caliber teams up with an awesome band like Holy Ghost!, along with Adult Swim, the result is bound for greatness. Throw in a one-eyed, God-like figure into the equation, and you’ll get this […]

Interview with Ghostshrimp

Ilana Kohn Reader Find

By Ilana Kohn in New Illustration on Wednesday 29 October 2008

Though you may know him as the driving force behind the amazing Ghostshrimp, his name is actually Dan James. To reminisce a little, Dan and I both attended Brooklyn’s Pratt College around the same time and he lived with a good friend of mine in our sophomore year. He really had a pet Ghostshrimp; I remember my friend pet sitting on it on occasions.

There’s a goldfish in my tea! Now you can turn any teacup into a charming fish bowl

Nicole Hughes Contributor

By Nicole Hughes in New Food and Packaging on Tuesday 18 November 2014

We’ve all seen and had the tasty cheddar snack Goldfish as children. As adults, here is a more sophisticated goldfish to have swim around your teacup. Charm Villa is responsible for this clever tea infuser. Before hot water hits these teabags, they don’t resemble much of anything. Then, as soon as the kettle’s done and you pour your water, the magic happens.

No smoke and mirrors are needed to make this swimming pool disappear. All you need is good ‘ol fashioned science and engineering! Take that, Houdini! Israel-based ‘Agor Creative Engineering’ has created a swimming pool that can be tucked away when it’s not needed, giving users more space for their home during non-swimming days. The pool […]

Beautiful photo of a Yosemite National Park waterfall

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in Cool Travel on Saturday 21 July 2012

A waterfall in the Yosemite National Park, glowing in rainbows. We first saw a picture of this by Canadian photographer Justin Lee while reading The Bangkok Post, and when we saw it again online, we had the indescribable urge to do rainbow jumps and crash into stars in the excellent Robot Unicorn Attack game straight away. Which is what happened next.

Superjail: a savagely funny cartoon

Earl Barrett-Holloway Reader Find

By Earl Barrett-Holloway in Video on Tuesday 8 May 2012

When my girlfriend first showed me this cartoon I thought something was happening to my body that was going to end badly. Superjail is so savage, funny, and well done, that I don’t know what to do with myself. I was talking to a friend at MoCCA Fest last week and he said his wife […]

Robot Chicken lampoons pretty much everything

Xavier Toby Reader Find

By Xavier Toby in Video on Wednesday 14 July 2010

The creators of Robot Chicken seem to have hit on an indestructible comedy formula that involves making claymation characters of either a television show, celebrity or popular myth and hoping something funny happens. If that doesn’t work the character is exploded, murdered, battered or sexually abused — which is fine because they’re not real.

Viva Caligula

Gerry Mak Reader Find

By Gerry Mak in New Trends on Wednesday 10 October 2007

While not as sexy as the 1979 quasi porno starring Malcolm McDowell and Peter O’Toole, the latest take on one of Rome’s most notorious Emperors is ten times more satisfying. Viva Caligula is a flash game where you play as Caligula. The goal is to sadistically slash your way through the Roman populace using 26 […]
