The Soup

5 Nov

In my humble opinion, the most consistently funny show on cable television is The Soup. For those unfamiliar, it is basically a thirty minute block of humorous clips from various talk, reality, and news shows during the week. I suppose that in the realm of comedic television, this show has an unfair advantage, seeing that it doesn’t need to actually write a fresh new script every week, but it never fails to entertain. The great thing about this show is that it exhibits all the ridiculous bits of shows I either don’t have the time or wouldn’t be caught dead watching (RuPaul’s Drag Race, Wendy Williams, any VH1 reality show, any reality show involving the “height-impaired”). The host, Joel Mchale is also a highlight, managing to toe the line between being outrageously funny without being obnoxious. Give the show a chance, I realize that its on the E! network, but its worth it. It airs every Friday night at 10PM, which I always miss, but it gets rerun throughout the week. Its sister show, The Dish, hosted by Topanga, is also pretty good, but she lacks the charisma of Mchale.

This show makes me want to stab my eyes out.

In Case You Missed It

4 Nov

Last night South Park aired the second installment of it’s superhero-themed “Coon and Friends” saga. At this point the story is getting ridiculous, but its still pretty funny. Last week they did a spoof of BP CEO Tony Hayward’s “I’m Sorry” commercials. This week they decided to stick with the same sort of theme but instead parody Lebron James’ “Rise” commercial. I guess it might be more humorous if you actually watched the episode, but if you don’t watch South Park……I don’t like you.

And the original:

Crusty

 

Crosby decides he’s tired of being called a pussy and decides to throw down with Matt Niskanen. Maybe all these Flyers fans will stop making fun of him now. If only he could grow a real moustache…….

Honestly, I think fighting in hockey is kind of getting ridiculous. It seems like every game somebody has to drop gloves and go after someone else. Half the time, it seems like they aren’t even trying to hurt the other guy……like they are just doing it for show. The refs usually just stand around and watch. I’m all for a little bit of bloodletting in sports, but at least make it interesting and show some effort.

George Bush on Kanye West

3 Nov

It has come to this. Dubya is making the rounds in promotion of his new book, “The Decider.” After a president is finished his term of service, it has become customary for them to release a book looking back on their time as the Head of State. I suppose in this case, W. has a lot to answer for, and this is finally his chance to come clean and try to paint himself positively for the sake of future generations. For the record, I am certainly not a fan of George Bush nor his brand of politics. However, I find him very interesting and I’d like to hear more about what he has to say about various issues. You can’t forget that he is a politician at heart, taking his words with a grain of salt is recommended.

Voting

3 Nov

Before she discovered Pizza Hut

I didn’t vote. Suffice it to say, I didn’t have anything cool to post on Facebook to prove to everyone else how “aware” I am because I was exercising my civic duties. I didn’t vote because I’m an uninformed, lazy college kid, although in some respects I guess I am. I didn’t because I’m jaded (Really?).

Break=Over

3 Nov

So I took another break from writing for about a month. I realize that I had already taken a sizable hiatus due to my departure to OCS over the summer, but I’ve had alot of things going on in my life. School and work once again are infringing on my precious “me” time. Other than that, I have tried to maintain some semblance of a social life. This is a weird part of my life. I’m finally coming to the end of college, yet I’m still stuck in the day to day grind of writing papers, preparing presentations, and working like a Hebrew slave at my job. I’m doing my best to stay positive and to face every situation that comes my way like a champ. I started lifting weights again and have been eating at some amazing new places. Life is crazy, but you gotta do you.
