Yep, Fox has said I could give a Bluray of Wilfred away to coincide with it’s release on DVD and Bluray later on in June. It’s open to people in Canada and the US, and they will ship it right to your door. If you have one. If not, it will come to wherever you tell them to send it.
When they got in contact with me I was all like, “I wonder what Wilfred is? Must be a mini-series about the life of Wilfred Brimley.” Then I remembered that he spells it “Wilford”. I looked it up on Wikipedia and thought it looked pretty cool, so I started watching season 1 online.
It’s fucking hilarious. Check out this 30 second clip. It doesn’t show the whole pelican scene, but you kind of get the gist. The dark humour is fantastic, and Frodo’s timing is bang on, as is that of Jason Gann, who plays Wilfred.
I seriously get short of breath, laughing at some of this show. It’s not for everyone, but if you don’t mind potty, drug, and sex humour, you should really enjoy this. I would watch season one while they are mailing this one to you. You’ll be happy you did.
I took the time on April 20th 🙂 to watch Cheech And Chong’s Animated Movie. Even though I was sick as a dog, I took an extra shot of Nyquil and settled in for 83 minutes of fart and weed jokes. I want to be able to tell you that it was filled with amazing wit and animation, but that would be less than truthful.
The licence plate says MUF DVR, in the movie.
I was expecting it to be fucking hilarious, because I had watched and loved all of their movies back in the 80s, but it wasn’t really comparable. It turns out that this was just old album material that has been rudimentarily animated and put out for public consumption. Continue reading →
Well, this worked out in my favour. I was going to not write a post for tomorrow, because I’m bed-ridden with flu like symptoms and an overdose of Calmylin. As I was crying, because I would be letting down so many adoring fans, an email came in from the absolutely lovely Mandy over at Think Jam. She has offered up a couple of DVD’s for a giveaway, and I gladly accepted. I guess we’ll just do it the regular way. Put in a comment, and on Friday morning we’ll do a draw on the Facebook page.
Okay, now read and comment. Or don’t. I guess my nephews and nieces would use them if you don’t want to.
Top Australian Animated Characters
To celebrate the release of Koala Kid on DVD April 30 featuring Johnny, we’re going down-under to explore the exciting world of Aussie animation. Our research has led us to a crowd of friendly critters, both old and new. We’ve listed best of the bunch below!
The Tasmanian Devil
Often referred to as ‘Taz’, the character is the youngest of the cartoon characters from the Warner Bros. Looney Tunes series. He is a ferocious yet dim creature with an extremely short temper and boundless appetite. Distinguishing features include communicating mainly through grunts, growls and blowing raspberries. He also has the impressive ability to spin like a vortex when on the chase for a tasty morsel (Bugs Bunny or Daffy Duck). Continue reading →
You know what? Fuck you, Fox. Why’d you have to make me get all weepy with this feel-good comedy about grandparents struggling to be a relevant part of their grandkid’s lives? I’m just kidding. I like getting all nostalgic and emotional. It’s cleanses my essence, and we all know how dirty that is.
Put a comment on this post and win this movie. Maybe. If you’re the only comment you will.
Now I’m going to do something I’ve never done. I’m going to tell you that this was a very heartwarming flick, and that I really did enjoy watching it. I’m also going to leave it at that and copy some of the press release in here to tell you about the movie, and urge you to watch it. Especially if you are one of my generation. You know, with parents who got pregnant in their early 20’s or late teens, and just raised you as best they could with what they had. No baby monitors, Google, or car seats for that matter. Just instinct, homemade wine, and guts. By guts I mean threatening and sometimes having to follow through when you call their bluff. Continue reading →
This will go to a random commenter. If nobody comments, then I guess it stays with me! Oh, there’s a DVD in there too.
Luckily for me, I don’t need to find out how many pans I’m allowed before I get cut off. Well not yet, anyhow. This little short was gratifying to say the least. I really got a kick out of it and watched it twice, because I wanted to make sure I caught the whole thing. All 22 minutes of it. Continue reading →
