…It’s Things Thursday: The Animation Show?

The Animation Show Posters

The Animation Show is a collection of very cutting edge animations put together by Mike Judge and Don Hertzfeldt. Mike is the creator of Beavis and Butthead, Office Space and King Of The Hill, and Don created Rejected, an Internet sensation. The show is more of a film festival than a movie, traveling across the country and usually just playing in a single showing per venue, but it’s definitely worth the price of admission. I have seen all three shows, including the latest one this past Tuesday, and it continues to impress me with the variety and the uniqueness of the included animations. If you get a chance, definitely check out a life showing, otherwise, the DVD collections will have to satisfy your desire for off the wall animation. My spoon is too big.

…It’s Things Thursay: Penis Pokey?

Penis Pokey

Penis Pokey is the perfect gift for the guy who just can’t seem to tie down his trouser snake or control his cyclops. An illustrated book with a large die-cut hole in its center, “every spread features a dazzling full-color illustration with one thing missing: a banana, perhaps, or a fire hose, or a sea serpent”. You then use your own imagination (and body appendage of choice) to complete the illustration. Fun? Definitely. Appropriate? Probably not. Just make sure to avoid this one at the used book store.

…It’s Things Thursday: The Collective?

The Collective

The Collective, a Freeride Mountain Biking video, is one of those films that makes you wish there was some way to rent enough skill and enough stupidity (or is it luck) to throw yourself off of a cliff with nothing but a bike to break your fall. Shot entirely on 16mm film, the movie has a grittiness and a rawness that puts your right in the middle of the action. “The Collective has created a film that portrays the newest, cutting edge images of the Freeride progression, while exploring the thoughts and personalities of the riders leading that progression”. Though it was produced in 2004, The Collective is still as cutting edge today as it was when it was released, and continues to inspire the entire extreme sports video industry. Be prepared to be amazed.
