I am catching up, very slowly, on the show via my DVDs. Rude observation time: Sonja Sohn is the weakest member of the cast. She’s quite beautiful and her character is well-drawn, but she just has that same delivery for every line – that sassy head shake and lurch forward. Maybe she improves after season one?
Omar Little, however… is an American hero.
Either the DMV camera has a special face-expanding widget, or I need to eat some damn less.*

I’ve got an interview with Venture Brothers co-creator Jackson Publick up at Reason. I’d wanted to talk to him for a long time, and it was a bit tough to restrain my fanboy instincts. Seriously, if you haven’t seen the show, rent or buy one of the two seasons out on DVD.
The plight of the Duke Lacrosse team seems a little less tragic now, eh?
Christopher’s wife is the sleazy Jersey girl from Kicking and Screaming? I’m in hipster nirvana.
All rap videos will now be forced to sound like this.

In one day I watched the Aqua Teen movie and met Bob Mould.
Fun fact about the ATHF film, by the way: It only cost $750k to make. It made back its budget at around, oh, 11 p.m. Mountain Time on Friday. Also, my screening came with a trailer for Paprika, an anime that looks… well, like Akira, and one of the blurbs in the trailer is about how Japanese animators are the shit while American animators “are playing in the sandbox.” That got a laugh out of my cinema.
Margaret Carlson on Fred Thompson:
He does look like the dad. He has everything that Pat says. Heâ€™s handsome, heâ€™s charming, he sounds like a president, he looks like a president.
He’s… handsome? What? I’m pretty darn gay, myself – I can imagine snogging Hugh Jackman or Anderson Cooper or that one guy from Fall Out Boy. But Thompson? Fred Thompson? Really? He looks like a novelty candle melted under a nuclear bomb blast.
This is all proof that our society is hopelessly patriachal and we need to elect a Unity08 ticket of Hillary Clinton and Rosie O’Donnell, or something.
Slow blogging of late because I was working on an article about The Venture Brothers, featuring a long interview with creator Jackson Publick. It’ll be worth it.
Here is every intro sequence to Urusei Yatsura.
And here is every intro sequence to Doctor Who – except for Peter Davison, sadly.
