RICK AND MORTY AND THEIR ADVENTURES























Has there ever been a better television show than Rick and Morty? It's not even a question, rhetorical or otherwise . As good as, yes; better than, no. I mean, The Ascent of Man was great, but is nowhere near as funny. The Twilight Zone didn't have a man with ants in his eyes. The Prisoner never turned himself into a pickle. When one is tired of Rick and Morty, one is tired of life. Seriously, the universe is no longer for you, and you need to get your shit together, get it all together and put it in a back pack, all your shit, so it's together. And if you gotta take it somewhere, take it somewhere, you know, take it to the shit store and sell it, or put it in the shit museum. I don't care what you do, you just gotta get it together. Get your shit together.

THOR THING


























Contemporary (well, 1966) cartoon adventures of the Norse God of Thunder. It's categorized as animation but, mainly, just the mouths move.

THAT ESCALATED QUICKLY






















Scanners, d. David Cronenberg (1981)

Tense, nervous headache? You probably have a Scanner in your noggin. There's no disengaging, just disassembling. It's going to get messy but, on the plus side, your skull ache will soon be gone.

I love 70s and 80s Cronenberg very much, but I also love the work of Brian De Palma from the same period. It's worth pointing out that Bri covered this very phenomenon in his 1978 classic The Fury, blowing John Cassavates into offal using only the power of Amy Irving's mind. If you ever want a high quality exploding human double bill, you know what to do.

DEGRADATION


























Poor quality analogue + digital = the strange psychedelia of decay.
