DVD recommendation — The Drawn Together Movie: The Movie

If you enjoyed the Comedy Central series at all (and if you have no idea what it is, hit the previous link for the Wikipedia page) you owe it to yourself to check out this straight-to-DVD animated film. The Drawn Together Movie: The Movie! isn’t rated, but it might have a hard time even mustering NC-17 status. It offends in almost every way possible — animated pornography, strong racial humor, stronger religious humor and that’s just scratching the surface. It even includes two 3D scenes, one a girl-on-girl-on-girl in a Bedrock bar (don’t ask, just watch the movie.)

So, if you are easily offended (or a minor) avoid the Drawn Together movie, but if you are a fan of the now-cancelled series, or just like the bleeding edge of edgy humor this DVD is worth picking up.

Saturday video fun — Radiskull & Devil Doll

Filed under: Arts, et.al., Media, Technology — Tags: , , , , — David Kirkpatrick @ 5:46 pm

I can’t remember when this Joe Sparks creation was a big thing on the web, but I do know it was an entire epoch or two back from the net of today. I can also tell how far back it was by the state of my Radiskull and Devil Doll, “Now it’s time to kick it,” t-shirt.

Here’s episode one, “I am the Radiskull”

Marjane Satrapi’s “Persepolis”

Filed under: Arts, Media, Politics — Tags: , , , , , — David Kirkpatrick @ 3:54 pm

This autobiographical animated film from 2007 is an excellent view into the Iran of the last thirty years. It opens with the Iranian Revolution and the high hopes of all Iranians looking to get out from under the Shah only to find out the Islamacists ended up as bad or worse.

The film is informative, happy, wistful and more, and it was very interesting for me to watch after this year’s ongoing green wave in Iran against the hard line Islamic leadership and the election by the ruling despots.

A fascinating visual of Wal-Mart growing to 3176 stores between 1962 and 2007 across the United States.
