In case you didn't catch Neko Case and Kelly Hogan as a pair of frisky Sirens on Aqua Teen Hunger Force this weekend, you can watch it here
If you aren't aware of how cool the Sunday night Adult Swim lineup has gotten, I encourage to check it out. Live in a cable-free household? Most of the Sunday night line-up is available online at adultswim.com. Here are a few of my favorite highlights. (If you're at work, put your headphones on.....now)
First, from the crazy-ass freaks who thought up
I give you.....
Xavier: Renegade Angel
Remember the Saturday morning action cartoons(He-Man, ThunderCats) that came on after Looney Tunes back in the day? Xavier is a take on them by the kids who brought you Wonder Showzen. So basically it's like you're 10 and watching a serial action cartoon after accidentally eating 2 or 3 of your parents pot brownies. Wikipedia provides this plot synopsis:
The show follows Xavier (a Native American-influenced faun-like wanderer/seeker with a snake hand, backwards knees, a beak, heterochromic eyes, and six nipples), who is traveling across America to find out the truth about his mysterious and uncertain origin, and uncover his parents' murderer. Occasional flashbacks to his past show that he himself killed his parents after starting an accidental fire in their home, but on the rare occasions when he is presented with the truth, he subconsciously rejects it.
Each episode begins with Xavier walking through the desert, musing on the themes of that episode, before entering a town, where he will usually meet someone whom he thinks needs his help. His attempts to help, however, are hamstrung by his own abject incompetence, and many episodes are based purely around Xavier trying to limit the damage that he has caused. Most episodes end with him walking back into the desert, thinking that he has managed to do some good, when he usually has not.
Not your cup of tea?
How's about some satire metal?
Or some ridiculous sketch humor?
Tim and Eric Awesome Show
Or reflexions on the white-trash life of some hillbilly squids?
If you didn't laugh at least once during the previous clips, I'm sorry, we can never be friends.
