Why have I suddenly started thinking about the Snorks?
If you’re gonna animate almost everything in the Speed Racer movie why not just go ahead and animate it all?
The guy who wrote Office Space, also created Beavis & Butthead, King of the Hill, and Idiocracy. I wonder sometimes if everything he’s done since Beavis & Butthead isn’t just a kind of apology for it. Clearly he doesn’t like the dumbing down of America, yet he unquestionably contributed to it. I think that must keep him awake a night… while he sleeps on his bed of money.
When I was in school I went on an art trip to Santa Fe. There was an art gallery that had random, lame, high concept, no content, art. One of the pieces was an original drawing by Mike Judge, set in a cigar box made to look like a movie theatre. Which is the closest I’ve ever been to a famous person.
The dude I was with started flirting with the girl watching the gallery. She was at least mildly charmed. His trump was to cleverly criticize a few pieces. Her expression went from flirty to annoyed.
“My mother made those.”
