Are You Hungry?
We offer a cinematic Broth of Vigour spiced with Cayenne and Bitter Herb plus a (Progressive) Touch of Apple Sauce and Meats cut To the Bone (slicing Under the Fish Scales.)

Our 37 films are all Memorable, providing Something To Remember until next Weekend and beyond—because we don’t use an Algo-Rhythm, we seek Gusts Of Wild Life! All humans are Awaiting Death and a trip across the Styx, of course, and some will End Up In Jail. But these 37 great shorts (Examine the list!) at Least show us sunshine through The Rain. Whether you’re a Baby Mommy or a Baby Dyke in Dungarees, we’re here for you. So Stay Awake, Be Ready!

— Yours Sincerely, the KFF Team.
