So slide in the side-door as we present a speakeasy of films serving up a slice of what was once deemed too much for John and Jane Q. Public.

Pre-Code titles available on Warner Archive Instant include:

Heroes for Sale - Jim Morrison

17-year-old Kiwi rockers Fraser Hunter and Adison Whitley go literally balls out on this new video by New Zealand directing duo Thunderlips. Calling it a ‘romp’ would be a bit of an understatement - nudity abounds, cock socks, babies, pillow fights. C'mon. Get into it. Jeff the Brotherhood would be proud. You reading this, boys?

how the heck is Lecrae so versatile

It’s like one minute he sounds like a southern rapper

the next he sounds like a new york rapper

then he be soundin like a reggae man 

now he be soundin mexican

I can’t wait to see him rap in an angry German accent in the song “eins eins sechs”

the most beautiful pieces of art come from the ugliest situations,
So I praise Him, rejoicin in my sufferin cause I know
He’s got a masterpiece in the makin,
and I ain’t scared of death nor Satan,
cause I know who’s hand that my name is engraved in,
