Um, that was brilliant. Thank you. (Plus, it's blue on one side and white on the other.)

Bloody(sorry) funny film man.

Funny, but tedious. Good link nonetheless.

ABC's of Sex Education for Trainable Persons.

Wow, did that cost $2,000,000 to make or what?

Well, that was not the film they showed us in the sixth grade. And who knew Corky's* sister had a future in feminine hygiene films?

wow, what a weird piece of work...

that's totally not the same film we were shown in canada when i was a kid. we got one called something nuts like "libby and the curse" and it starred a preteen dini petty who went on to become a toronto tv celebrity. i remember one year when dini was still anchoring at citytv they played a clip from it on her 30th or 40th birthday during the news, heh.

The sudden appearance of the dog makes for a shocking and unexpected conclusion.

Someone should replace all the dialogue with lyrics from the Jay-Z album.

"A-is for ATOM" rocks my world too...

i've been looking for a digitized version of a 60's or 70's era animated flick titled "the boy who walked on his hands" ... has anyone seen it ? stashed out there somewhere? ... it gets my nomination for the best educational flick of all time - especially in these times.

The repetition is so very much like Blue's Clues. It's really disturbing.

I so want to set this to the Twin Peaks theme song.

This one on protein synthesis is very amusing.

It's a play on words; a pun. Ain't watching it. Figures this would be popular at Leftifilter.

Is that the one where they warned kids not to stand to close to the curb, so you don't get "Banana Feet"?

From dgaicun's link: "Slim knew his big sack would be hard to handle"

Almost as bad as vigorously petting the doggie.

This could be done. Because as I understand it, Jay-Z released an a capella version of his new album.

Using an old educational film to surreptitiously call attention to an atrocity is the oldest trick in the book. Well done, ColdChef.
posted by shoepal at 7:03 AM on March 15, 2004


Jay-Z released an a cappella pressing of the album - many hip hop stars do - so that people can make remixes. So it's possible, ejoey.

Oh, gawd. I can't follow the link - DNS is effed up at school - but I gather that "Sex Ed for Trainables" is now available online. There's a bar by my house that shows movies and old advertisements, and someone brought SEfT, along with some 60's era anti-drug clips. "Trainables" is downright dusturbing.

One day God had to get off his ass
He had to walk to the kitchen and get his own glass
To this glass he had to pour his own booze
For this, his woman had to pay the dues
Now all women must pay this terrible bill
That arrives every month against their will
A crescent hang over, half-irritated smirk
Full migraine cramps, and Maxi-pads don't work!

I've shaken filmgoerjuan's hand.

Was it sticky?

(I know from experience that it's blue on one side and white on the other.)

Who knew David Lynch got his start making educational films?

Wow, I feel . . . uh . . . much less disturbed about menstruation than I did before I watched this.

Sadly, the video ends before we can find out if the dog is named "Spot".

BTW, I feel that credit should be given to Piss Resort which is where I found the link in the first place. An excellent source of linky goodness.
