I bought the South Park movie the other day for 5 bucks because I somehow didn’t own it. I’ve seen it plenty of times, but watched it again because that’s what I do after I buy a DVD. I was literally crying during Cartman’s song about Kyle’s mom. Tears came out. That song never gets old and movie in general is so re-watchable. Remember it was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Song for “Blame Canada?”
Just reaffirms how good this show is. Nominated for an Academy Award, nominated for 7 Emmys, winning two of them for “BFF” and “World of Warcraft.” The South Park movie got an unbelievable 81% on rottentomatoes.com, a site that polls major reviews of every movie. That’s so good for that site. For a movie/show that doesn’t take itself seriously and blatantly abuses crude and lewd humor, it must be really good to get such good reviews.
If you still think Family Guy is better, I feel sorry for you. You’re either uninformed or stubbornly ignorant. At least go to http://www.allsp.com/, click on the 10th season and find the episode called “Cartoon Wars.” If you still think Family Guy is better….well you’re just a chooch. I guess the Teen Choice Awards voted FG the best animated series over SP in 2006, so at least you have some pubescent brace-faces on your side. I’m sure they have their reasons.
So, Ralph Nadar is running for president again?
Wouldn’t be a big deal to except that political experts say he’ll most likely hurt the Democratic candidate, which will incite me with anger if he swings the race from Obama to McCain. Once I found out he was running I thought to myself that I feel like he’s ran every year since I can remember. Turns out, after a quick Wikipedia, he’s run every four years since 1992. What!? Give it up, buddy.
Funny that Derek Jeter is the voice of baseball. Not really that it’s him because, let’s face it, who else would it be? But more because anything he says is made into a headline and held almost as gospel. For instance, he said he would welcome blood testing in baseball and it was a headline. OK, well that’s just one person’s opinion. Am I supposed to be convinced by this? And I remember back during the Clemens hearings it was “Jeter says hearings bad for the game.” Well, alright, I agree, but isn’t that kind of obvious.
Reporters just ask him a question about a subject, see what he says and then it’s an auto headline. Weird that he’s pretty much the only guy in sports that this happens to.
Love that the Sox extended Francona. Great move. Always been a big fan of his. He gets a lot of shit (Francoma) but it’s really not his game management that I’m overly impressed with: it’s just his overall professional approach. Guy handles everything and everybody perfect. Lot of egos, superstars and personalities in that clubhouse. Plus the overall media and fan scrutiny/pressure playing in Boston. I think people sometimes forget that the Sox being normal is a relatively new thing. It used to be crazy in that organization. The fact that spring training now goes on without any drama is amazing. The club has certainly come a long way and I think that’s in part because of Terry. So respected and professional. Love it.
