The Far Side, October 31, 1978, Stephen King’s house, Bangor, Maine.

Hour-long documentary, but well worth it.

Who knew that the red monster in those Bugs Bunny cartoons was named Gossamer?

A more realistic version of Snoopy’s Red Baron fantasies.

Looney Toons voice actor Bob Bergen explains the logic underlying Porky Pig’s stutter, which is surprisingly regular. This clip comes from the documentary I Know That Voice, produced by John Di Maggio, the voice of Futurama’s Bender. Mel Blanc, the original voice of Porky, never explicitly set out these rules, but Bergen’s reverse-engineering of them shows that Blanc had intuitively set out a highly systematic way of approaching Porky’s stutter.

The Butterfly Effect

The Butterfly Effect is an action-packed short animated “tale of mayhem” written and directed by London-based Dan Sumich of Passion Pictures that shows how one San Francisco man’s day takes a dramatic turn after going out to get some more milk. The Butterfly Effect was created in partnership with video game engine developer Unity to highlight their new Unity 4.0 3D software. The film is an homage to classic action films from the 70s to the 90s and is mixed up with a soundtrack by heavy metal Grim Reaper vocalist Steve Grimmett (which really adds an extra punch).

Remember that show “Pinky and The Brain”?  Well, so does my co-worker Katelyn.  We got this flyer from some other firm crowing about their two new partners.  The two of them look exactly how Pinky and the Brain would look if they were human.  She sent this as a submission to totallylookslike.com.
