Zen and the Art of South Park


A fun curio: A series of animated films produced by Trey Parker and Matt Stone of South Park fame, based on excerpts from the lectures of Alan Watts. The clips are actually five or six years old, but they've been bubbling through the Internet again recently and they're worth a look.

On a related note, an exchange from Reason's interview with Parker and Stone:

Reason: How were each of you raised religiously?

Stone: I was raised agnostic. There was no religion in my house.

Parker: I was pretty much the same. My father tried to raise me Buddhist, as in Alan Watts Buddhism, which is Buddhism in a way.
