Robot Chicken, Season 6 Now on DVD/Blu-Ray

“More masturbation.”

That was part of the motto for Robot Chicken writers for Season 6 — and yes, there were tons of masturbation — and bodily fluids, disemboweled body parts and incredibly inappropriate jokes. If you’re not laughing at Robot Chicken’s antics then you’re probably dead inside. . . or your sense of humor is just boring and barely exists! As most of you know, the show is the brainchild of Seth Green and airs on Adult Swim on the Cartoon Network. The premise of the show is stop motion animation with the toys most of us are familiar with and making them do things we all did when our parents weren’t looking.

INTERVIEW: Kate Drummond of ‘Splinter Cell: Blacklist’

Kate DrummondRecently I was lucky enough to conduct an interview with charming female Canadian actor Kate Drummond. Kate plays Technical Operations Manager Anna ‘Grim’ Grímsdóttir in the video game Splinter Cell: Blacklist. We conducted most of the interview over Skype and before the interview officially began she showed me her Splinter Cell mug that displayed the image of Sam Fisher when hot coffee is poured into it. Pretty cool, right? In this interview Kate talks about Grim, what it was like to act for a video game, her online cooking show, the incredible story of what inspired her to pursue an acting career, and her passion for working with children. She also shows her geeky side by talking about why Iron Man is her favorite superhero.

It was such a pleasure chatting with her and it’s one of the few times I felt like I was having a conversation with an old friend. She also totally channeled Grim during our interview and handled a situation when we were starting to have technical difficulties. Frankly, Kate’s pretty awesome.

Tell me about your character Grim in Splinter Cell.

Well, she’s the Technical Operations Manager of Fourth Echelon. She does all the analyzing, all the data, getting all the information to Sam while he’s on the field. She’s a really skilled hacker and super smart and super by the book. She’s a woman in a man’s world and so she’s one of the guys in a way which I love about her. I grew up with an older brother and all his friends and I was five years younger. I was always so excited to be a part of their group and hang out with them and play road hockey. I grew up as a tomboy, so I feel that Grim has that sort of strength and a sort of presence that she’s able to command in the Fourth Echelon because she has those skills and a strong opinion on those sorts of things.

WEB SERIES: Girl and Boy

When farts meet smarts, it’s high brow potty humor, for the low brow comedy lover.

Girl and Boy is a new animated web series created by Barry W. Levy and  Helenna Santos Levy. The main characters appear to be the silhouette “girl” and “boy” logos for public restrooms (hey, we use the same logo too!) with voices that are also provided by Barry and Helenna. Girl and Boy spend their day sitting on the potty discussing celebrities, crushes and all things that are important in life.

Despite the simple animation style of the series, Barry and Helenna breathe life and personalities into their characters with ease.

All 9 episodes of season one are available on the website. Give it a watch. Unless you’re offended by farts. If you are, what’s wrong with you? …Seriously. Lighten up. Farts are funny.
