Tales of Mere Existence

Although originally posted in 1999, Tales of Mere Existence bears a repost, as the site has been updated since then with lots of new and hilarious films and comics about "stuff you think but don't talk about." (QT)

The films from '94-'01 are great, too. And here is a good article about Lev, although unfortunately Jump Cuts was canceled or never ran.

i don't think it counts as "nsfw" if it's behind a jump on the first page. it's also animated...

is there some kind of statue of limitations on double posts? :)

I don't know, there have only been 46,031 other posts since then. I'd give it a little longer.

[this is still good.]

In a previous life I owned a indie film video distribution company and one day out of the blue a video arrived with a fucked up Sesame Street-esque feature on it. It was very strange. It was made by Lev. I didn't put it out but I had to think hard before turning it down. It wasn't animated but had live puppets. Too bad it's not on the site (that I could find).

Yeah, I knew I wasn't really going to get called out for a double post, but if I didn't mention the original someone else would.

This should be flagged NSF People Who Remember Surfing in 1999 and Now Feel Old.

I've always thought that the big internet hit of 2001-2002, oddtodd.com, was a total ripoff of Lev's Tales of Mere Existence. Same deadpan voice and humor, but a total ripoff.

And actually, his spots did run on Comedy Central. It was one segment from an animated show they ran just a couple times to fill some time slots though.

But am I the only one who wants to know what a statue of lmitations looks like?

This is good and I haven't seen it before, so thanks. Cute, sad: Jealous is inspired.

A statue of limitations just portrays Brittney Spears.

Yeah -- I think that was called Jump Cuts, which was actually a pretty cool show. I dug it. They had some really great stuff on that one.
