I know the news is nearly always unpleasant, but it just seems like the past few days have been an absolute parade of ridiculous shit. I actually haven't bothered to read about the O.J. mess, just read the details of the whole Jena 6 debacle this morning, and it seems like the Taser incident is having the wrong aspects blown out of proportion. Hell, I wasn't there, but I think Jon Stewart nailed it last night: "possible police over-reaction combined with student douchebaggery".
I had to go to bed so I didn't get to see what Colbert did last night (TiVO will save it for me), but I did see something on CNN this morning about an Air America radio host being a little pissy about Colbert allegedly "stealing his joke" about the Republican candidates sounding like Klingons when they talked about having honor. Yes, who could possibly come up with that twice? But hey who knows, it could be an intended mock feud, the show does seem to have a few of those...
Anyway, thank god for real news, like Alicia Silverstone getting naked and saying she's a vegetarian. I have no idea what getting out of a pool all seductively has to do with PETA, really, and even if I was a sixteen year old boy, I'd still be watching it while cutting up a nice rare steak. (NSFW, it has bum in it).
No movies lately, though House starts next week; considering the cast is still intact I think his team may be back yet (though not in their usual roles for a while). I have Gandhi waiting for me (never seen it), though I admit especially after a long day it's a bit daunting to put a serious three hour movie in the player. Somehow I find myself opting for South Park. And I won't have a day off til the end of the month so Netfux, I'm sure, is thrilled.
