My boys over at Cultural Compulsive Disorder (an illness I have been terminally blessed with) let me know that ADULT SWIM on the Comedy network are working on a cartoon version of the characters from one of my favorite films of the bast decade, Black Dynamite.
If you haven't seen it you need to add this to your Netflix list. It lovingly spoofs those 'blacksploitation' films of the 70s. Unlike other such films that make fun of a certain genre of films (Scary Movie), this one did so in ways that were subtle but ten times as funny. They told their story straight without a knowing wink to the audience and that is what made it so enjoyable.
The cartoon promises to be over the top with it's ghetto kung-fu style. I currently am in the running to win a signed copy of this comic book, also based on the characters from the movie. Can't tell you how great it would be to see this in my mailbox.
Now where is my Black Dynamite action figure with kung-fu action grip and ghetto playset? It's just a no brainer.
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
