You probably know Cartoon Hangover as the home to 'Adventure Time' creator Pendleton Ward's outer space adventure tale 'Bravest Warriors'.
They produce a bunch of other fresh to def shit too though, including their Too Cool! Cartoons series, which has given us the stoopid def short 'Manly' from Jesse and Justin Moynihan!
It's about crazy space Gods, war, sibling rivalry, asshole fathers, a wicked awesome, super violent, super sensitive young heroine with a weird sidekick who lives in her fanny pack, and deep, deep philosophizing.
I love the shit out of it, and think there really needs to be a 'Manly' series.
So, NBC is taking a crack at adapting D.C. Comics' Alan Moore (sorry Alan) created 'Hellblazer' series with a new program following the exploits of magician John Constantine titled (what else?) 'Constantine'.
I didn't hate the big-screen adaptation of 'Constantine' starring Keanu Reeves, despite the fact that they Americanized the character, mostly for it's stellar supporting cast. Tilda Swinton is always a favorite, as is Peter Stormare whose turn as The Devil is one of my favorite silver screen depictions of Old Scratch.
And while NBC doesn't have a great track record with things like this (other than 'Hannibal') and usually backs away from heavier content (except for 'Hannibal') this isn't looking too bad. In fact, it feels an awful lot like a show I love, 'Supernatural', which is hilarious since that show's angelic protagonist Castiel is a tribute to the John Constantine character.
Anyway, I'm holding out hope they get this right this time and don't shy away from making the material dark, magical, and weird. Like I said, it's the New Bavarian Conspir...I mean National Broadcasting Network, so we'll just wait and see. At least they made him British this time, right?
One of my favorite things to watch on Netflix instant is episodes of David Lynch's quirky early-nineties series 'Twin Peaks'. Don't get me wrong, I love the weird humor, and I especially love the obscure occultisms its later episodes are littered with. But I often find myself hungering for cherry pie after watching the denizens of the wacky northwestern town scarf down slice after slice of the stuff for hours on end.
It was the year when they finally immanentized the Eschaton.
Imageyenation is an online cabal of "free thinkers" dedicated
to "immanentizing the eschaton". We propose to complete such a momentous
undertaking via nothing less than the dissolution of nation-states, the
desecration of organized religion, the abolition of private property,
the redistribution of wealth, rampant miscegenation, Gay marriage, the
abuse of psychoactive substances, using your tax-dollars to pay
for healthcare (including abortions!), and the summoning of unspeakable
"supernatural" entities via the performance of debauched rituals. To that
end we'll also be posting TONS of streaming MP3s, record, book, and film
reviews, funny photos, and streaming video clips, not to mention in-depth
essays and editorials, directly to the undercurrent of the underground
stream that is "the internets".
