And the unthinking partisan circle jerk continues. Can it please be two weeks and a day from now?

I was in high school when that episode aired. The week after, my English teacher announced that we'd be studying that poem next. She was initially surprised and thrilled at how excited much of the class was about that, but those were quickly replaced with horror and disgust that such excitement was due to something so crass and low as "The Simpsons." Ah, 1990. Such wonderful onions for our belts back then.

Andy Dwyer is pretty much the Corgi Friday of Thursday television.

Watching the Adventures of Jamie and Martin Gore of Tarth is the part I'm most anticipating, too. And yes, I think that's funny, dammit, and I'll fight any man other than Tom Petty who says otherwise.

It's sometimes too easy to read things in to art. Sometimes a donkey show is just a donkey show.

I was at a place the night of the hall of fame game where a few Rams players were as well (what a brush with fame!). After they left the waitress showed us one of the tickets and asked if we recognized the name. It was Janoris Jenkins, and he had taken care to draw big Xs across the tip line to make it just that much more obvious he was stiffing her (teed it up for ye lazy ones). Apparently first thing he said when he sat down was, "You have any discounts or freebies for Rams players?"

Or maybe it will be nothing like that and just like what was described rather thoroughly in the post.

Yeah, this hit just about everything. I'm cruising towards 38, and the time factor is a huge thing as more than anything else I'm finally serious about my career. Yet I have all these partially explored games sitting around. The last games I played all the way through were the Sly Cooper games. I don't even try to play FPS anymore and haven't for nearly a decade. In the late 90s I was involved in a QuakeWorld CTF mod (ThunderWalker) that was designed to be faster and twitchier. But now if I try I'm the "What button makes the gun go" guy. Part of that is because that experience burned me out on the whole thing. Still, at least back then the people questioning my sexuality and the farm animals my mother was inclined to had at least a partial college education! /olditry.

One of the major problems with the last few years (ok, decade) of "The Simpsons" is that there's an obvious and desperate need for the writers/producers to feel relevant. Too many of the jokes are spent trying to remind us that they know stuff that happened in the last year at the expense of the story or characters making sense. With "South Park" a lot of the reduction in what could be funny is a desperation to make the story make sense which I think results in a lot of endings marking an incomplete story being a "Fuck it, we gotta ship this thing" result from their schedule.

I'm waiting for Tommy's new iTunes U history book. "To fully grasp the hawrah of the Japs attack on Pearl Hahbah, you have to go awl the way back to Awktobah 1978. Bucking Fucking Nippy Dent."
