My Life on the D-List

December 11, 2008

I don’t watch much television, but Kathy Griffin’s My Life on the D-List is a nice diversion. AND in season 4 she dates Steve Wozniak, one of the Apple co-founders.

I haven’t laughed so much in a long time. Kathy is trying to set one of her friends up with one of Wozniak’s “geeky successful Apple guys” by double dating at the H’ckry Pit, a diner that’s “almost as nice as Denny’s” (Steve has very humble food tastes despite having a billion). Unfortunately, Steve’s alpha geek nature takes over and he ends up dominating the lunch conversation with really geeky conversation. Stuff like “I’ve put an electronic metronome in a friend’s locker” and “37 is a really great number, it’s the first irregular prime number”.

It’s priceless. Sadly, no clips on Youtube.

Aye Ayes Everywhere!

December 8, 2008

I’m not quite sure if its due to the Baader-Meinhof phenomenon, but everywhere I look online I seem to be finding Aye Ayes. Or (considering they’re an endangered species) is there a conservation effort trying to raise publicity for these vile creatures?

Arrested Development on MSN

December 2, 2008

Why did MSN get buy the rights for internet broadcast of Arrested Development and not doing any marketing for it at all?

Watch Arrested Development on MSN!

Arrested Development, for those of you who haven’t seen it, is a wonderful American sitcom about a dysfunctional wealthy family facing financial problems (perhaps not the most sympathetic of situations right now). No canned laughter, Varicam filmed (for that movie-look), machine-gun-speed joke-injection and a relatively large cast sadly did not make it a popular success on Fox, though it won several Emmys and various other critical awards.

One of the best things I’ve watched over ever. Not quite burst-out-laughing funny like Fawlty Towers, perhaps, but more of an I-see-what-you-did-there-oh-its-so-clever funny.
