colbert is brilliant.

I kept forgetting to post this link. Stephen Colbert and his writing staff must have shown up early the day they gave out genius. This edition of The Word is so spot on, it’s beautiful. By using satire and sarcasm to take the ugliness in various ideologies to their logical conclusion he often holds quite a bit of truth within his humor. In this case, he does a remarkable job pointing out the racism surrounding the Sotomayor nomination, and not only there, but hiding within so much of our cultural landscape. I get so tired of ‘white’ and ‘neutral’ meaning the same thing, as if white people aren’t biased, and don’t have cultural hang-ups, but everyone else does. I keep typing sentences and erasing them because I am getting worked up, and the people closest to me are probably tired of hearing me rant about it, so I’ll stop there and let Colbert do the talking. If you haven’t seen it, you should check it out here: Neutral Man’s Burden.

However, I would love conversation around this stuff, so feel free to comment or email me or call me or whatever!

Ricky Gervais. Stephen Merchant. Ralph Fiennes. What else could possibly need to be said?

despicable me. [trailer park.]

I’m interested in this based almost entirely on the fact that I love the cast. However, it should be noted that as Fanboys so clearly showed, having a large number of funny people involved can still easily result in a completely flat and humorless movie. As always in these situations, I’m hoping for the best.

one more thing.

I promise this is the last OSS 117 post for the day, but apparently the funny similarity between Bond and de La Bath is because Bond copied 117, not the other way around. According to wikipedia the first 117 novel predated the first Bond novel, so 117 came before 007. To read about the original, more serious version of the character, you can go to the wikipedia page yourself: here.
