Don’t Stop Believing!

Posted on August 14th, 2010 by Alastair Craig

When I recently left a lucrative supermarket job to pursue my Starving Writer phase, I couldn’t help feel survivor’s guilt.  I fled with my soul intact, but how could I lend moral support to those left behind?

Then there was the question of my legacy.  What would my loving contribution mean to Coles Supermarkets Australia Pty Ltd ten years from now?  I had to leave behind a message for the ages.

Also, the staff room really needed some coffee mugs.

THE BELIEVING!  IT JUST WON'T STOP!

Communal diseases are a small price to pay for the POWER of BELIEF.

There they remain to this day; silent sentinels to the stars.

Internet, let’s make YouTube’s vile comments section a better place.  Follow a video of your choosing with a bizarre comment – not negative, nor offensive, but simply designed to make a stranger’s day that little bit more surreal – and share your contribution with us.  For example:

Review etiquette states one shouldn’t judge outtakes as harshly as proper cinematic output. To that notion I say “balderdash”, for as this short piece of improvisational theatre proves, unscripted material can represent the purest of unfiltered artistic visions in the right hands.  And the hands of YouTube user “LalaaLou” prove very right indeed.

Following the groundbreaking double-punch of crowd pleaser Birthdayy and the introspective Tom and Katy 2, one could be forgiven for expecting this young up-and-coming auteur to scout for further untapped potential in the documentary sphere. But LalaaLou, long perceived in the YouTube community as a daring visual pioneer, is as always keen to corageously explore and map entirely new artistic landscapes.

Under this Spielbergesque directional gusto, the ensemble cast acts flawlessly as a single entity; so perfect a muse that the original vision and performance are inseparable.  One must gaze beneath the surface; beyond petty technical issues of timing and choreography, to find the poetry in this very discordance; beauty in the eye of the storm; the calm, if you will, in the chaos.  Only then does one discover the rich emotional subtext: it is not about the end product, but the journey.

Future generations might very well admire – nay, worship – this 0.38 minute manifesto as the definitive template, if not the outright final word, on Chad Kroeger commentary. I laughed. I cried. YouTube video designate elv4kGQv8EI works on every possible level, and then some more. The best independent film ever made?  Quite probably.

Comment on a YouTube video and report back to us below in our own, less vile comments section.
More reviews will be added intermittently.

Alastair: Once more, TRC alumn and newly baptised podcast initiate Chad McCanna was kind enough to travel back in time to a 2004 poetry night to help pad out this slow, rhyme-deprived month.  Ta, love.

Alastair: To appease you, the hungry masses, between episodes of Our Excellent Podcast, we asked Emmy-winning filmmaker Chad McCanna if we might kindly raid the vaults for this gem. He politely nodded.



Amazonian Ethel

Reader Reviews from TRC’s Resident Puritan Nutcase

We’re sorry – we really don’t know how it happened, but what’s done is done and there’s no use making excuses. Somebody has introduced our favourite fictitious fundimentalist critic, Ethel Roberts, to Amazon.com.

Yes, Ethel Roberts. Crusader for the good and champion of the pure. She emerges now, shielded with self-righteousness and sething with strongly worded paragraphs, here to let the world at large now how she feels about not only this, but also that. Especially that.

Come with her now as she snaps on the rubber gloves and runs a finger around the inside of Amazon.com’s Reader Reviews section.

Crap Comic: Unsolicited Guest Strips

Posted on October 28th, 2005 by Mister Bung

When Aussie Ben began his Crap Comic series – nay, confronting sequence of contemporary masterpii – he gazed up at the glow-in-the-dark Glow Zone stars on his bedroom ceiling and said: “Some day, world. Some day, I’m going to make it big”.

And here he is, two years later, producing guest comics for the finest names in the business: Penny Arcade.  PVP.  VG Cats.  Calvin & Hobbes.  Garfield.  Batman. The list goes on and on. In hindsight, though, he probably should have asked for their permission first.

Dear reader, would you care to Hassle People of Importance with us once again?
