One more....


This is an old Frank Capra expository cartoon about blood (blood cells) called "Hemo the Magnificent."

If you can get past the blend of live action and cartoon this is just about some of the best pedagogy you'll ever see&hear and turns out to be quite informative:

Cannonball Run


Just seemed like a remake of Gumball Rally to me.
The problem is deeper than reporters asking tough questions of both sides, but the view of politics these questions reflect. Simply put, this view is the one that Trump rode to victory on and built his cult with.
Democrats and progressives want politics to be about policies that will help Americans and solve problems; Trumpists want to make politics about lies, insults, personalities and tribal warfare, so that the American people continue to believe that politics is just a sideshow that has nothing to do with their lives.
Journalists should hold politicians accountable on both sides of the aisle, but they should do so in substantive ways, not by asking irrelevant questions that look more like gotcha oppo research than substantive questions about policy. At a deeper level, the choices that journalists and media companies make right now will have an important impact on whether we as a nation are able to rise from the destruction of January 6th to revitalize our democracy, or to slide helplessly into fascism.

Cannonball and Gumball were actually filmed at the same time and released the same year, usually when this happens it means either something made major headlines or someone shopped the story around and one studio rejected it only to steal the idea and make something similar. Gumball and Cannonball both are loosely based on the race or the idea of it.

Cannonball Run which came later, is a actually a silly recreation of real events that occurred in the race. Many of the cars involved in the film were the ones actually used, the entire ambulance plot really happened, Hal Needham the director and writer drove that very one in the race. It's not a remake, it's proper telling.


F.Y.I. There are still people doing coast to coast runs and there was plans to run the race again in 2019 by a group of people who do it but I think word leaked or something and it was cancelled.

Just finished "The Escapists"
I bit misleading on the premise but still good.

Been watching Big Fat Quiz. It can get a bit British at times, and occasionally I can;t even understand some of the guests, but it's fun to have on in the background.
I love David Mitchell and Richard Ayoade.

Disenchantment,  honestly, they did so much world building , the CGI's really nice, looks like very high res render, No aliasing.


There are some forced moments, but it's still the first season, they've got alot to work with, good foundation.  It's made by the same Futurama guys.

The Castle CGI is gorgeous.
