Bravest Warriors: Animated Space Adventure Series by the Creator of Adventure Time

Bravest Warriors

I spent my evening last night watching these 5 minute episodes of Bravest Warriors, the new animated space adventure by Pendleton Ward the creator of Adventure Time.

I’ve only recently been inducted into the Adventure time cult, but I’ve fast grown to love the show, these episodes have everything that makes adventure time fun, just condensed into an even shorter time span and…

IN SPAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACE!

The episodes are to air exclusively online on the Bravest Warriors YouTube channel, and Boom Studios are releasing comics based on the show that you can buy now!

The Art Style is adventure time, the humour is adventure time, the voices are for the most part adventure time, and it has a chip tune theme song, what’s not to like, I’ve embedded the first few episodes here so you don’t have to go anywhere to watch them, you can thank me later.

Life Imitates Satire In US Elections


I was moaning about US politics and how rubbish their election system seems from the outside with people queuing for hours on in just to exercise their right to democracy that they are so proud of, and the breaking up of areas so that it’s actually difficult for certain minorities to vote (This is apparently called Gerrymandering), when @GladleyNet pointed out to me that Arizona had printed election material with the wrong date on it.

I thought she had the story wrong, as I remembered 8 years ago the outrage people exhibited when they had misinterpreted an article in the Onion about republicans urging minorities to vote on the wrong date, I even remember sharing the article with an American friend on Yahoo! Chat! (Wow that brings back memories) with the intention of getting a laugh out of it, she thought it was a serious article.

This time it seems that life is imitating art, there are actually election leaflets out there urging minorities to vote on the wrong day, whether this is intentional or not it unclear, it’s certainly a horrible thing to happen, it is only 50 cards of however many were handed out so it’s not likely to have much effect and the outrage at this story surfacing will probably make even more people vote.

 

Who’s the robot that won’t cop out when there’s danger about?

I’m not even going to bother to comment on this it’s just too funny…

 

thefrogman: Who’s the carbon steel investigation robot that’s programmed with 5,000 sexual techniques guaranteed to please all the chicks? YOU’RE DAMN RIGHT. Who is the driod that would risk his vital circuitry for his compatible counterparts? CAN YOU DIG IT? Who’s the cybernetic feline that won’t malfunction when there’s danger all about? RIGHT ON. You see this cat Mechanical Shaft is a bad mother— I’M ONLY TALKING BOUT SHAFT. He’s got a complicated 128 bit encrypted operating system but no one understands him but his female cybernetic translation matrix. Oh god why am I laughing so much at this!?
