Thudian and Mundoose

If you like Ren and Stimpy and Indian food, check this out. It's the first episode of a cartoon created by my friend James Jacob, who drew on his Indian roots and his experience animating Looney Tunes to create some amazing characters. It's about 2 lazy, flatulent guys from Kerala, India, and their quest for food. You'll never be the same once you know what "loose motion" is.

KAWS blog

KAWS is a graffiti-ish artist who just launched the store (clothing line?) Original Fake. I used to see his work around NYC when I lived there in the late 90s, mostly adding cartoony elements to print ads... I wasn't that impressed at the time but I have to hand it to him, he ran with some simple ideas and developed them into something very distinctive and cool. Now he's getting some recognition as a serious artist and hopefully making some cash too. Nice work dude. Check out his blog, it's pretty nice.

Sesame Street Pinball Psych-Out

I think this clip is the reason I ended up playing guitar in a funk band after college - and probably had something to do with a lot of other bad behavior. The music is just too funky, and I don't know what they thought they were doing to kids with the psychedelic graphics. Yo Gabba Gabba's got nothing on this.
