This story begins with a really strange moment from my childhood, that somehow is connected to all of this, a spark that bounced off into the distance from when I can hardly remember. At about the age of 5, I saw Toy Story in theaters. I had seen many animated feature films before this one, but for some reason, a peculiar feeling came over me. After seeing that movie and going home, I asked my parents about animation. I somehow knew, after discussing it with them, that I would be making animation, in Georgia of all places. I remember asking them where Georgia was—it was all pretty weird to say the least. It was odd, even at that young age, to imagine doing something for a living in a place I hadn’t really heard of or knew anything about.… Read the rest
House of Cards presents a hidden agenda against social security. President Frank Underwood says “entitlements” are killing the country – and everyone watching House of Cards takes his words as fact. And besides, if it weren’t for social security, our streets would be littered with elderly people.

Un-Redacted: Activist comedian Lee Camp and his news show, Redacted Tonight use comedy to uncover the truth by covering all the stories you won’t see in either comedy or on the news.
How do you make School of the Americas, climate change, the military and prison industrial complexes, corporate personhood and income inequality funny? And perhaps more importantly, why should they be made funny?
Lee Camp, activist comedian and ‘intrepid newshound’ host of the news comedy show, Redacted Tonight, explains.
“A lot of these issues I try to tackle are simply too depressing when tackled straight on. People avoid them or look the other way,” he says.
“But with comedy, people will listen longer, they’ll forward it to friends, they’ll not feel completely defeated by everything we’re facing. Even people that disagree with me are willing to watch a comedy show.”
