The Slim Shady Show is Fucking Hilarious

WOW! I don't know how I never saw The Slim Shady Show before, I must not be as big an Eminem fan as I think I am!

Fuck that! I am a BIG fan, I'm just a fucking reclusive, shut-in who reads too much and doesn't have cable because I am trying to protect my brain from accidentally seeing bullshit housewife survivor K-Krap shitshows. The Slim Shady Show is fucking hilarious! It's so dark and violent and full of cursing and celebrity bashing. It made me laugh so hard because it was so cocky and raw.

Slim and his bully sidekick Big D beat the shit out of Leonardo DiCaprio, taunt Fred Savage, annihilate Ben Affleck with his Oscar, and insult the shit out of Matt Damon. I like all of those actors but that shit was still fucking hilarious! It totally reminds me of my comic book (which came out in 1997) and I am kind of glad I never saw Eminem's cartoon before now because I really need inspiration to get my animated pilot of Bathroom Girls done and now I have it! In a way it made me sad that I have toned down the violence and cursing in Bathroom Girls to get it network ready, it had to become something different, and it will serve a different purpose. The comic book will always exist how it was created, full of my teenage angst and rage.

Some interesting similarities between Eminem's cartoon and my book:

In my book the bathroom girls crash a party of some girls who they competed with earlier in the day. One of them slips drugs into the punch at the party.

In Slim Shady show Slim and his gang lose a basketball game against some other kids (south park gang!) and crash their party to taint the punch with drugs. 

They also have a big fight in front of 7-11 type store. 

The Bathroom Girls and Slim Shady's gang go cruising in their car from one violent encounter to the next... just small similarities that flipped me out when I saw them, I feel less alone as I move forward to work on my animation.

Once again Eminem's art keeps me going.

PEACE AND LOVE TO U MM WHEREVER YOU ARE!
