Woah. A blast from my miserable (although not due to it, rather it was a ray of sunshine in the misery) past is coming back! Living again! Thanks to Adult Swim.
Adult Swim and Valve! It’s a union forged in places where unions I don’t expect are forged. Whatever could they be dropping? A Team Fortress 2 short? Something? Such?
There ain’t any certainty as to whether or not Dan Harmon will be running Community next year. Tots bummer, agreed. Whatever the results of that upcoming nightmare though, we will have ourselves some Harmon. The good lad is currently developing a show with Adult Swim. Here’s a description for you.
OFWFKTA continue their domination with their Adult Swim show. It looks equal parts Tim and Eric and Jackass. I know I’ll be watching. Definitely an acquired taste, and that taste is something like “juvenile dementia”.
Hit the jump to check it out.
[Is there a better way to celebrate the manger-birth of a superpowered messiah-baby than watching television? Hell no! Join Rendar Frankenstein as he navigates Spaceship OL through the Televised Days of Christmas!]
There’s no denyin’ that there’s some debate as to how Christmas should be celebrated. Religious-folk’ll tell you that the purpose of the holiday is to commemorate the birth of Jesus Christ, and as such there should be plenty of Nativity scenes and trips to church and prayers uttered. On the other hand, secular-folk’ll tell you that the spirit of season is to make a concerted effort to spend time with friends and family, honoring our fellowships with feasts and drinking-bouts and gift-giving sessions.
And somewhere in the middle of this Venn diagram, there is agreement. Peace on Earth. Goodwill towards men. Santa Claus. Zealot or heathen, we can all get down with these Yuletide trademarks.
But what if this harmony is actually overwhelming our senses, robbing us of the ability to hear the strains of discord? Could this seemingly beautiful concord blind us to the truth? With everyone getting along, giving one another the benefit of the doubt, how would we ever know if the most wonderful time of the year had a sordid past?
Well, we’d have to be visited by the Cybernetic Ghost of Christmas Past from the Future.
The fine folks at Adult Swim have used an unreleased track from Mastodon’s Crack the Skye as the soundtrack for one of the best videos I’ve seen in a long time. You’re guaranteed to love it – unless, of course, you don’t like puppets, gunshots, monsters, UFOs, robots, explosions, or metal.
And if that’s the case, I’m going to have to ask you to leave.
