This is amazing!`The first item you must find is the "triangle shaped bush" and they do not let you forget it by repeating it 5 times. FF to the 11:30 point because sitting through this is torture. I swear Mickey's Clubhouse is written and animated by a computer program from 1993. Triangle shaped bush.
“It ain’t a fit night out for man nor beast,” bellows W.C. Fields in the Yukon farce The Fatal Glass of Beer (1933), just before a snowball promptly blasts him in the face.
That snowball arrives on cue each of the dozen times Fields opens his front door and delivers the line, and the joke never gets old. Sure, it’s a twist on the old pie-in-the-face gag, but that’s just the surface. There’s no explanation as to who’s throwing the snowball, if anyone or why, and like much of the humor in The Fatal Glass of Beer, the real punch-line (if there is one) isn’t immediately apparent. If the lack of an obvious “joke” is what makes the film so utterly stupefying to watch, it is also what makes it so richly rewatchable and weirdly haunting. The pacing doesn’t anticipate laughter, and the dialogue lacks obvious comic emphasis. It would easy but inaccurate to say that this unusual tone makes the film feel “modern,” but it would just as wrong to say this strange two-reeler was “of it’s time.” The Fatal Glass of Beer is like one of the natural wonders of cinema, a totally bizarre creation that abides by its own rules and exists in its own world—and what a wonderful world to visit it is.
One of the dead pan funniest dead-pan short films of all-time
Hal Moffat who is taking wholesale revenge by murdering those he holds responsible for his predicament, is befriended by Helen Paige, a blind piano teacher, and he develops a warmth for her that leads him to add thievery and robbery - no big deal, he is out there anyway - to his murders so that she can be provided with the money for an operation.
Never knew that this was a great series of novels, thought it was just a horrid TV show. "Honey West is the nerviest, curviest P.I. in Los Angeles - or anywhere else for that matter. She's a cross between James Bond and The Avengers' Emma Peel - a girl detective with the sleuthmanship of Mike Hammer and the measurements of Marilyn Monroe, and This Girl for Hire is the first in a series of darkly funny and innuendo-laden crime novels originally published in the 1950s and 1960s. In this one, Honey finds herself playing strip poker with four murder suspects...and a deck that's as stacked as she is." Honey has her hands full with the corpse of a washed-up Hollywood entertainer, a battered beauty, and a poisoned pipsqueak - not to mention the guy who tries to get her to model a transparent bathing suit in his swimming pool "shaped like the body of a very large-bosomed woman." Fortunately, with her 38-22-36 measurements, taffy colored hair, big blue eyes, and baby-bottom complexion, Honey fits right in with the Hollywood types as she searches out the clues aboard a yacht christened Hell's Light. "Just bring a swimsuit and a toothbrush," says Sam Aces, the producer, but it's a good thing Honey's packed her .32, too.
I love this for all the wrong reasons -- Dick Calkins great art adds a perfect deadpan to Philip Francis Nowlan's Ed Wood like horribly, stupid writing. If it were published today I would think it was a brilliant comedy in the vein of David Boswell's Reid Flemming
An angry bull has taken its revenge on a streaker during the running of the bulls in Pamplona.
To the delight of onlookers, the bull singled out the man amongst a sea of people in traditional white shirts and red neckerchiefs and went for him.
The world famous, seven day festival is held every year and attracts runners from all over the world.
Last week an Australian man was seriously injured when a 1,200lb bull sliced through an artery in his leg. He is expected to survive.
The full extent of the streaker's injuries are not clear but he was able to walk away and was later arrested for causing a public disturbance.
He is unlikely to have been too unhappy about that, however, as he is clearly an exhibitionist and the attention probably made his day. It may even have made his whole week.
This psychedelic cartoon was produced by the U.S. Government with taxpayer dollars in 1976 to mark two hundred years of independence. It is both patriotic and trippy at the same time, and tells you a great deal about the aesthetics of the 1970's. I guess for once the US government knew what's citizens were doing and what they wanted to see wen they hired Vince Collins who billed himself as a pornographic, Psychedelic Animator.
