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?
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.
I have discovered the greatest music video ever created. Adult Swim asked Mastodon for a song for their Singles Program: ‘when they sent us this incredible jam, we knew we had to make a video for it.’ And they did. Watch on in awe.
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!
Just in time for Halloween, we have a proposition for you: 150 people dressed in white, an empty swimming pool, and more fake blood and guts than you can shake a stick at.
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 […]
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 […]
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.
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 […]
Kids seem to have all the fun when it comes to amusement parks and traveling shows, so why not give the adults some excitement? China sure knows how to do just that! As part of the Kerry Hotel’s “Pink October” campaign and raising awareness of breast cancer prevention, they added 1 million pink and green […]
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.
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 […]
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.
