Been A While....
And I figured there was no better way to get back in the swing of things than with a minor rant on a useless topic.
When South Park really came into its own, it had a real leg up on other comedies. By the time they replaced the construction paper cutouts with virtual ones, they could create an episode in a matter of weeks, rather than months. If I recall correctly, The Simpsons has a lead time of at least 7 months.
But now, something else has come along.
Yes, what used to be the domain of those little web games that suck you in- Bookworm, anyone? It's now becoming the new wave of animation outside the computer screen. Shows like Mucha Lucha, This Just In, Home Movies, and such. It even looks line the long awaited Clerks sequel will be in Flash, rather than traditional animation.
I can't quite expalin it, but that style just bothers me. I always think my TV's going to crash, or I'll get some sort of pop-up ad for refinancing my mortgage. And since it's cheaper, you can just bet we'll be seeing more of it.
Maybe I'm overreacting. Hey, at least we can always count on Disney for true animation, right...?

You know, back in my younger days, I hated when my parents would find out about one of my schemes/scams, and instead of just busting me on it, they would give me just enough rope to hang myself by letting me lie right in front of them.
I bet Donald Rumsfeld feels like that right about now.

Toothless Agression Lives!!!!
Big ups to Chris Benoit for achieving the impossible dream and making HHH tap like a little girl to become the new WWE Heavyweight Champion!
I've got a whole lot of other opinions about Wrestlemania, but you'll have to tune in to 1310AM The Ticket Wednesday night starting at 8.I, along with the P1 Wrestling Panel, will break down the matches and tell you the good, bad and ugly.
On a completely unreleated note, I'd like to ask for all your good thoughts and prayers for my mom, who's going through a bit of a rough patch healthwise. I appreciate it.

Was at a Dallas Desperados game the other night, and in between the contests for free wings at Hooters and YMCA dance contests, the people in charge of the huge video display above the field played a clip from "Pee-Wee's Big Adventure", specifically the part where he does what we all know as the Pee-Wee dance in the biker club.
Which leads me to my question:
Can we all enjoy Pee-Wee without shame now? I know the 'incident' was back in '91, but I don't remember getting the all clear signal.
