A History of Animation
~ In 1878 Eadweard Muybridge captured movement at 24 frames per second, and it is safe to say most of humanity has been rather obsessed with this illusion ever since. I personally will note animation as my first bonafide obsession (well, maybe third after drawing and comics). For this reason Inkbot TV wants to share its History of Animation as part of its weekly Saturday morning cartoon feature. It has little semblance of a timeline but I still have hope that you will find it educational.

The Knee High Puppet Company
~ Inkbot’s own Knee High Puppets are here in nearly all their glory; that is, what can be contained of them. If you’ve ever been to a show than you know Bartlby, Artemus and the whole lot of them are notorious for their inability to stick to a script and their quick paced improve. These puppets are not your ordinary talking socks; living vast complex social lives vicariously through your own imagination, the Knee High Puppet Company specializes in ridiculous with a twist of profound.

Art Thoughtz: w/ Hennessy Youngman
~ Your not educated in the arts until you’ve heard it from Hennessy Youngman, A.K.A. Henrock Allah, A.K.A. the Pharoah Hennessy, A.K.A. Henrock Obama. Bridging the gap between the gallery and the hood Hennessy lays it down hard, crippling even. So to help make your art degree worth something in the real world, Inkbot is featuring Art Thoughtz weekly for the next few months. Enjoy!
P.S. You may want to cover the children’s ears if you prefer they avoid cussing. Though on the other hand, Youngman is particularly skilled at cussing so you may want them to hear it from a pro. In short, these videos are probably NSFW.

The Random Google Image Search
~ If your a longtime visitor to this virtual labyrinth we lovingly refer to as the inkbot, than you may remember this once weekly feature. Not the most exciting feature, but certainly worth archiving. The game was simple, select a word that has no tangible existence and find an image for it. Later this rule was replaced by, pair two words that semi-contradict each other and find an image for them. The results were not quit random. The words were selected with a bias and their subsequent images were handpicked with even more bias. Care to play? Just go to Google, start pretending to pick words at random and select an image. Feel free to contribute your results to the inkbot, perhaps with a written description of your process or something equally random.

Oh the Places You’ll Go - A Dr. Seuss Tribute
~ Here on the inkbot we have all that you need. We even have tributes to things that you read. Here is a tribute to a doctor named Seuss, who’s language was silly and rhyming and loose. He schooled us with pictures and words long ago, and gave us advice on the the places we’d go. So now that we’ve been there and back a few times we’ve brought you some nonsense, some nonsense that rhymes.
