Dominic has been a driving force on three of the most popular primetime animated shows of all time: “The Simpsons”, “King of the Hill”,and “Family Guy”, all garnering him Emmy nominations.

Seth MacFarlane personally tapped Dom to direct two of the Family Guy Star Wars spoofs. Family Guy’s “Blue Harvest” not only became one of the most successful episodes commercially for Family Guy, but artistically it won the approval of George Lucas himself and got an Emmy nom for Dominic. It is revered by audiences and peers alike. Dominic’s life began as a child who fell in love with art and drawing.

Director cameo

He went on to study art at UCLA, where he earned a BFA in Art and a Masters in Animation. One of his first professional jobs was on the seminal years of The Simpsons, where he honed his chops. He was one of a great crew of animators that helped shaped the show into what we see today. After 20 years working on the top animated shows, Dominic knows the medium better than anyone.

He is an award-winning filmmaker with his recent animated short “Lovesick Fool-Love in the Age of Like” about his own creation based on his life searching for love, which he wrote and directed. It stars Lisa Kudrow, Janeane Garofalo, and Fred Willard, in addition to Dominic who plays a character much like himself.

The film has won “Best Comedy” and “Best Animated Short” in several top festivals. Dominic still sticks to his artistic roots where he has monthly art gallery showings. He is currently lending his directing talents to the cutting edge new show “Rick and Morty”.
I highly recommend you check out the Trailer for Dom’s Animated Film and keep an eye out because I think this will be a series for sure!

Lots to talk about on today’s show so let’s get to it.

But first my thoughts on JJ’s decision to amp up the Lightsaber.

 

ugh

ugh

 

First things first. Dear JJ....

 

Episode 97

 

  • 2:30  The New Star Wars and Batman movies. Why I love hating them!
  • 12.:15 JJ Abrams doesn’t get much of anything. EXCEPT free reign to ruin everything that was ever awesome. Mystery box my ass.
  • 15:10 Star Wars Ep VII The Force Awakens trailer. Uh, where are the fucking STARS?
  • 17:13  Superman Vs. Batman Dong of Justice. Affleck as Batman? I actually like that!  Better than that overrated  douche Bale.
  • 20:00 The Truth about your “Ruined Childhoods”. You know what? Fuck your childhood. Seriously.  Why  things can never be as awesome as they were when you were a kid.
  • 22:45 The Cartoon Curmudgeon rants about the internet and cartooning. Let’s rethink it a little. Hear me out.
  • 42:23 Join the Man vs Art Squadron on War Thunder!
  • 43:40 Definition of Artist, Theirs and mine.
  • 48:20 Spider-Man joins the Marvel Cinematic Universe! Geeks worldwide simultaneously oozed web fluid. Was it premature?
  • 01:05:20  Man vs. Art’s honest take on the Charlie Hebdo tragedy. Lot’s of “ists”. Cartoonists, Terrorists, Racists,  Satirists,  and assholeists. Why Freedom of Speech had NOTHING to do with this and why all of those pretentious cartoons were sickening.
  • 01:14:10 Super Hero Movies and the staggering load of Click-able Content, add revenue, and traffic that is created by us  for those poor media corporations.  Won’t you please help?!!

Ep: 96 Release the Curmudgeon!

Release the Curmudgeon!

Today I rant and rage about my experiences with youngsters. A little free floating hostility if you will.

Apparently  the “timeout everybody gets a trophy generation” has entered the workforce and they are in for a rude awakening.

Millennials suck! But it’s not their fault.

On Today’s show I blast MILLENNIALS for their lousy work ethic, lack of respect towards real grown ups, and their childish sense of entitlement. Their inability to handle hardship or criticism  doesn’t make for good artists. We have a generation of total pussies who expect everything handed to them.

stfu

 

I point this stuff out but I don’t blame the kids. I blame their Generation X Dipshit Parents for creating these monsters.  If every kid is special then no one is special. How could anyone not see that helicopter parenting was doomed from the beginning?

I’m hoping that my younger listeners will understand  what I am saying and not take it as insults but as the truth. Then they can do something about it. Suck it up and fight the pussified tendencies drilled into them as  kids. Millennials are some of the smartest, most talented and creative problem solvers around. When they put their phones down they can produce some really cool art, animation, and comics. Sometimes they can go as long as an hour without checking facebook.

Before we go on, check out the painting I did of  my buddy Spartacus!

ADBLOCK IS BULLSHIT!

1411044457197s

Adblock Plus is fucking over independent content creators and should be run out of town.  When you block ads, the content creator doesn’t get paid. Now these assholes at Adblock want to start an ad campaign to promote Adblock.

Are they fucking kidding me?

Finally I wrap up the show with the 7 types  of Facebook status Updates that make you look like as ASS DOUCHE!

Enjoy the show!

Spartacus

I’d like to take a moment to introduce you all to my new dog Spartacus. I’ve always wanted an English Bulldog and the opportunity came up for me to trade my services as an artist to a couple of  breeders who wanted a portrait painting.
