A screenshot from the documentary 'American: The Bill Hicks Story' (27 min). 'Only Bill would try Hallucinogenics before he tried alcohol'

American: The Bill Hicks Story (imdb) is a fine, must see documentary for all comedy fans and People of Counterculture. The movie shows us a man who during his own lifetime lived and breathed relentless dedication to speaking hurtful truths to barely receptive small-town comedy club audiences, but was privileged enough to witness the early days of his persona’s journey towards cult-like status.

You can buy your own copy or rent a stream (HD quality available) on the film’s site. A 720p copy can be downloaded illegally over bittorrent.

The documentary is definitely worth its weight in HD bandwidth thanks to a ton of gorgeous animations made from photo cutouts. Lazy, white-trash Finnish fans might however enjoy the free, subtitled low-res copy of the movie on The Finnish Broadcasting Company’s Areena streaming site (25 days of geographically restricted availability left at the time of posting).

New Beavis and Butt-head episodes in production?

Beavis and Butt-Head and it’s spin-off Daria are great sources for therapeutical insight and self identification for anyone who didn’t particularly enjoy growing up in a typical kindergarten-for-teens kind of high school setting.

B&BH creator Mike Judge later did a name for himself with cult movies Office Space and Idiocracy. Youtube#.

Llamas With Hats

Disgustingly funny, by the creator of Charlie the Unicorn whom one should remember from a few years back. There are even 1, 2 sequels involving poor Charlie.
