Whoa, Canada

Class War Films comes out swinging against ExxonMobil and their minions in Canadian and U.S. government circles. That simple. And in this case, very effectively.

This one's for the Stimulator at subMedia, whose web–series It's the End of the World as We Know It and I Feel Fine gave me an introduction to what he referred to as "The Muthaf***in Tar Sands."

You don't know what "The Muthaf***in Tar Sands" are, or what's on ExxonMobil's map to obscene wealth? Press play and find out:

H/T to LUV News (a/k/a Liberty Underground), among whose readers are the two who crafted this piece.

Coming Attractions: The Tunnel

Well, if this won't sink Disney and Jerry Bruckheimer's pirate ship franchise, I'm not sure what will. It is a new horror film called The Tunnel, and its Aussie production company, Distracted Media, went one better than the House of Mouse…

They took it directly to VODO.

Read on if we got your attention:

In 2007 the New South Wales government suddenly scrapped a plan to utilise the water in the disused underground train tunnels beneath Sydney. In 2008, chasing rumours of a government cover-up and urban legends surrounding the sudden backflip, investigative journalist Natasha Warner [Bel Deliá] led a crew of four into the underground labyrinth. They went down into the tunnels looking for a story — until the story found them.

Here comes the trailer, mates:

You know what to do, horror buffs. And a few extra greenbacks/Euros into their PayPal account probably wouldn't hurt.

Feature Presentation: Chicken chicken chicken

Well… why not?

You have to watch the whole thing to get "it," you really do. (You can also right–click to get the original Microsoft PowerPoint presentation and a PDF made from it.)

For those of you who are vegan or vegetarian, just kidding.

Except that what Promenade Digital does is quite a bit above poop. Stressing the word "quite."

Feature Presentation: Are You with Us?

For the more thoughtful souls amongst us, we bring you Rajesh Chittineni's Are You with Us?, made with the aid of his software engineer friends — all of them fed up with India's ever–enduring history of corruption (and how anyone can be affected by it), and able to craft a simple vignette based on the fight for the Jan Lokpal bill, which, according to India Against Corruption, would require that "investigations into any case should be completed within a year and the trial should get over in the next one year so that a corrupt person goes to jail within two years of complaint and his ill gotten wealth is confiscated."

Please do watch it:

Take a bow, gentlemen.

Feature Presentation: Kung Fooled

Tonight, we give our big screen over to Wong Fu Productions for a nice little smackdown of stereotypes and perceptions.

Or to cut to the quick: Did you just get Kung Fooled?

Oh, yeah.
