I wish I smoked pot sometimes I do. I really wish I could curl up with an ounce of pot and watch cartoons all day. Because damnit, 10pm to 1am every night blows my nards off my body and then they roll around on the ground doing the Mexican hat dance.
I'll have to admit that I'm a little late to the party on the "Adult Swim"
front - but for the most part - it hasn't really smoked the masses - wait til "Get Your Was On" and "Boondocks"
come to the lineup in the fall.
I find edgy cartoons like Aqua Teen Hunger Force
and Robot Chicken
to be fucking amazing and not bound by normal TV criteria. There is no soul to look in with these mediums. The cartoon medium can depict sick twisted cut throat humor without trying to pull off reality. A satirist or artist can use inanimate (well animated but you get my point) objects as a device for their message without compromising themselves. Most of the stuff is silly, yeah. But, there are somethings that will make you wish you were 19 again and you could sit in someone's basement or in a dorm and suck down reefer and eat fried foods and watch Cartoon Network all night long.
