    90 Day Wondering

    Look you all know it's propaganda and as soon as I hear "I'm a CIIIIIIIIII-Vilian again" I knew it was propaganda but it was entertaining. After all it's heartening to know that wanting to get out of the army gives you Tasmanian Devil like powers. I was half expecting "When you marry in the army, you get a 30% discount on wedding costs and/or a free house maid." You wouldn't put it past these animators, would you?

    ★★★★

    A patchwork of the emptiness that lives inside us as humans. While there is no discernible plot - only in the loosest sense do we know that a 16 year old with a tampered ID managed to get herself breast implants and has gone missing presumed dead. Instead of dealing with the case in hand of what happened to her, we're given a broad spectrum of the things that have cropped up in this day and age in society. It…
