It's a life-long fantasy of mine -- and maybe this is true of many creative people -- to find a group of like-minded artists that could I band together with to form an experimental collective, living solely for our art. The Rude Mech's Method Gun explores the dynamics of one...

Pinoy Sunday (2010) Taiwan, Directed by Wi Ding Ho It’s The Puffy Chair but in Taiwan. Which makes it better than The Puffy Chair. But not by much. Does mumblecore work in...

Glasgow, Scotland's Errors roam through all landscapes -- terrestrial, aquatic, otherworldly, rave-y -- in this video for "Magna Encarta", sometimes with a chicken as their prime focus, and sometimes not.
