Counterculture Boutique

I've had a number of links sent to me that were too good not to share with you all. A veritable boutique of counterculture:

- Donkey Bong
JoeCartoon clogged up many networks in the late 90's with his un-PC and puerile flash animations, creating characters like the Cheech & Chong 'Stoned Fly' and Gerbill. The most memorable animations like the frog in the blender and gerbil in the microwave allowed office workers to unleash the passive sadism that lies beneath us all and put the phrase Who's ya Daddy? into popular English usage. His work has defined what a viral campaign is. He is back with another dollop of surreal weirdness and ultraviolence. More on it here.

- Graff Jewelry
No not Graff - the most fabulous jewels in the world, but graffiti enabled by the reverse setting on a diamond ring by Tobias Wong. Get caught making use of your ring to make your mark on the world by tagging car and train windows, luscious pearlescent paint work on a TVR or your boss' computer screen. You can see Tobias' diamond project here.

- American Public Money Spent on Vanity Corporate Film On Adult Entertainment industry
OK, we are currently pitching for a UK-based adult entertainment orientated television channel and web site, this this website designed to complement a PBS Frontline documentary on the adult entertainment industry was useful for research into the business . Seriously though, looking at this, there are some scary people out there, interesting facts - a starlet in the industry has an average career lifespan of just 12 months. Sombre, disturbing and yet compelling reading here. Glamourous like Boogie Nights it ain't.

- Jump Up & Get Down Massive Scene!
Email text from Supercharged Records: "Click on the link below to hear an exclusive preview of all the tracks from the forthcoming Freestylers 'Raw As F**k' album!
