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!

By Thomas Rawle from Papa Vs Pretty in Video on Wednesday 25 May 2011

This video is amazing. I hope somebody does half the stuff they speak about. Regardless, the animation is flawless, and the way it follows the spoken word is so precise.

Lamia Larkin Reader Find

By Lamia Larkin in Video on Friday 25 March 2011

Laurina Paperina loves contemporary art, especially contemporary artists. She loves them so much that she has several videos depicting ways in which she would kill them. Like Marina Abramovic dying from running into her lover several times naked, or Takashi Murakami being eaten by one of his flowers, or Damien Hirst being attacked by butterflies! Apparently you can love anybody to death.

This animation takes me all the way back to kindergarten, when this is all I knew how to draw.

Thought-provoking educational clips by RSA Animate

Nini Baseema Contributor

By Nini Baseema in Video on Monday 8 November 2010

Social and political education has a history of oftenwise being dust-dry. The Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce (RSA) have set out to change this. They’ve come up with a video series called RSA Animate in which a talented illustrator draws images as a speaker presents a topic. These short videos are real thought provokers, they are both entertaining and educating at the same time, which I think is phenomenal.
