Hands on!

What happens if you cross the Addams Family with Terry Gilliam-style animations and Akira?

Well, for one you get an awesome music video for a band named Noisia!

The Happy Tree Friends: See you Later, Elevator

Here's the latest cartoon about the Happy Tree Friends, showing the hijinx that ensue when they use an elevator. :)



I love those furry little guys. The way they combine a Carebear-style look with Tom&Jerry-style violence and Hostel-style depiction of the consequences of that violence (remember - in Tom&Jerry awful things happened to the characters too, but they always were ok right away again) almost always cracks me up.



Granted: Just as with Southpark the show loses some of it's initial shock value once you get used to it's style, but there's always moments in their clips that have me laugh out loud. I just say "Axe to the Face"...



Oh - just for clarification: I don't want to say that Southpark turned bad for me, I still enjoy them a LOT, but I never again was literally rolling on the floor laughing, gasping for air as at that first time I ever saw the show (episode: An Elephant makes Love to a Pig). Of course the episode itself really is funny, but what back then killed me was the constant feeling of "Oh no! They're not going to go *there*! DAMN! THEY DID!" I had. THIS feeling is now pretty much gone, because - well, it's Southpark and most likely they WILL go ANYWHERE. :D


We Come In Peace!

It's difficult to describe We Come In Peace. It's a series of Flash cartoons about... Creatures. Doing... Things?

Still Alive

Ok, usually I just post movies, but this time I need to send a warning ahead: If you, in the future, plan to play the game Portal and don't like spoilers, then don't read on and skip the movie - you'll be seeing it anyways... Oh, and don't read the explanation too...

These are the end credits of Portal which basically blew me away (see below):

(written by Jonathan Coulton (http://www.jonathancoulton.com/))

Here's a little background information:

Portal is a 3d ego puzzle game. Using the perspective every shooterfan will recognize at once (actually using the fine Halflife 2 graphics engine) it manages to be really tense and at times rather scary without any spacemutants out to eat your guts, guns and crowbars...

Adolf die alte Nazisau im Bunker - now also in English!



It took some time, but finally one of the loveliest German bits of youtube also got translated into English (or has been ages ago and I only found it now...). Ladies and Gentlemen, I give to you Der Führer! (above in German and below the English version).


Shaun the Sheep

Maybe you allready know Shaun. No, not the one of the Dead but Shaun the Sheep, the woolly sidekick of Wallace and Grommit in "A close shave". Obviously he got to the hearts of some people, cause a while after the movie was done he got his own TV series.
