Lo-fi ultraviolent cartoons are the new hotness, and Grey Girling, aka BarfQuestion, brings the heat. Or, at least, inconstant toasters.

What do these do that Itchy & Scratchy or Ren and Stimpy don't?

Not snarking, it's just they aren't so much the new hotness, as the perpetually hotness.

There's funny lo-fi stuff, and then there's faux lo-fi stuff that looks like it was designed by the PeoplePC Dial Up team after appletinis, then contracted out to the laziest kid at Columbia College, Chicago circa 1986.
Sorry if this is harsh, but c'mon. student films have come a way.

Great link, maryh. But I like the BarfQ guys, too.

Yeah, looks like more Don Hertzfeldt imitation.

i was hoping for somethig more along the lines of this bit of animation.

I see the Don Hertzfeldt grip but I thought they were stylistically unique enough to be enjoyable.

Slap*Happy, these really made my breakfast!

Not griping, just contradicting "the new hotness." Gotta appreciate the legacy of this style!!

I don't have any nitpicking to do, so I don't know if I should comment. I did enjoy the videos though. The music was great, especially when Supervillain was dancing to the techno Hall of the Mountain King.

It's times like this that I miss Liquid Television.
