This Animé “MFKZ” Has Some Of Everybody Doing Everything R-Rated In It (Trailer)

Rated R? That all?? Looks like it could be ‘stronger’ with the warning. Bloody violence, check! Foul language, check! And sexual content, aaaand check! Yep… checks all the boxes for some dope, slick, sick anime that fans like; just like they like it!!

The film [“MFKZ”] centers on young Angelino and his skull-and-flame pal Vinz, who live in a seedy tenement in an LA-inspired dystopian metropolis – a burnt-out, gang and cockroach-ridden neo-urban hell. Following a scooter accident, Angelino starts experiencing migraines and strange hallucinations, as well as fits of rage-inspired superpowers, as he slowly awakens to the truth of his origins: he is half human and half Macho, a supernatural alien race that is bent on taking over the planet.

Check for this [very] limited engagement anime film in theaters October 11th and 16th.

Randy Houser – “What Whiskey Does” (Lyric Video)

Unapologetically country! Why post it here though? Because when my Mama (yes, Moms) first shared this with me, I chuckled. Then about midway, I realized there was a bluesy feel to it, then I pulled up the lyrics on Genius (linked here)… and started thinking: Does this guy need help?

Hey, all in all, this “What Whiskey Does” is good music doing what it does; taking me on a journey and affecting me during and after the trip. Affected me so much, I am still kind of ‘tripping.’ Check out Randy’s joint. Not our usual fare, but worthy!

Executive Producer Thandie Newton Presents “Liyana” (Trailer)

You know the movie is going to be powerful when the trailer touches your heart and wells your eyes with tears. With animation in it no less. Incredibly compelling film!

Under the guidance of acclaimed South African storyteller, Gcina Mhlophe, five orphaned children from Swaziland collaborate to craft a collective fairytale drawn from their darkest memories and brightest dreams. Their fictional character, Liyana, is brought to life in innovative animated artwork as she embarks on a perilous quest to rescue her young twin brothers. The children’s real and imagined worlds begin to converge, and they must choose what kind of story they will tell – in fiction and in their own lives.

This genre-defying film weaves an original animated hero’s journey with poetic documentary scenes to create an inspiring tale of perseverance. LIYANA is a tribute to creativity, the strength of the human spirit, and the healing power storytelling.

Critically acclaimed, and executive produced by award-winning actress, Thandie Newton, LIYANA has won more than 25 jury and audience awards and screened at more than 80 film festivals around the world including the British Film Institute’s London Film Festival and MoMA’s Doc Fortnight.

There Are Almost 8 Billion People On Earth. But How Many Is Too Many? (Video)

PBS picks up the conversation topic Bill Gates was speaking on in the post on here from a couple of weeks back – overpopulation.

Is overpopulation real? Is Earth filling up with too many humans? How many people can Earth hold, anyway? As our species approaches 8 billion, human overpopulation is a major concern for many people.

Could Ant-Man Be The Most Powerful Avenger? (Video)

This one is more [theoretical] science than science fiction, and I will tell you in advance… I did not get it (even after the second watch) totally. But that last ‘outtake’ point that Kyle makes… I got that the first time! In fact, me and @RealSuperKing were talking about the ‘mass problem’ on “Ant-Man” in a different way while back: When he gets super-tiny, but retains his mass, wouldn’t he crack anyone’s arm he ran up?? SCIENCE!!

When you think of powerful Avengers, you probably think of Hulk or Thor, but should we be considering Ant-Man too? Kyle has the quantum realm science on this week’s “Because Science”!

This ep is awesome to watch. Now, do NOT let all this ruin your movie-watching experience. I won’t. In fact, I’m hoping to see an ‘easter egg’ in the “Ant-Man And The Wasp” movie that hints at Ant-Man giving Thanos the business… and saving the world #InfinityWars #HelpUsScottLang #MaybeOurOnlyHope

An Extended First Look At ‘The Death Of Superman’ Animated Movie (Trailer)

I remember buying my brother TWO copies of the ‘Death Of Superman’ bound volume comic when it came out decades ago. Not because I was thinking “collectors’ item… ka-CHING!” Nah, it was because I knew we’d be wearing that thang out reading it; and it was prudent to keep one ‘in the clip’ as a backup.

Epic story. Supes went out the one way he was supposed to… not withering from waves from a green glowing space rock… but from defending the earth, his home (Metropolis) from Doomsday… and falling dead on the battlefield with HONOR. The Super Scout and The Monster BEAT THE F**K OUT OF EACH OTHER!! A fight to the death!

And now DC is doing a movie about it… again. Remembering that they kind of screwed the Krypto with the Doomsday angle in the bloated Batman Vs. Superman movie they did, I’m just saying, “DC, do NOT screw this up!!”

Watch This Short Film On The History And Musical Impact Of The Soulquarians (Documentary)

The Soulquarians were born at the Electric Lady Studios. Questlove and D’Angelo loving to make music with sickness in it. Common & Erykah Badu came in and got down with the sickness. The fam kept growing… and the brothers James (Poyser and Yancey) rounded out the core… but the story certainly doesn’t stop there…

In 1998, the Neo-Soul movement was near its peak when a collective of like-minded artists came together to push the wave even higher. They called themselves the Soulquarians, and before the decade ended they’d help birth some of the modern era’s greatest recordings.
