Good news, everyone!
April 28, 2008
SUCH GOOD NEWS. Our stocks of awesome humans needed replenishing.
(Can you imagine the pressure on that kid, though? Geez, it’s like growing up with two brain surgeons for parents, except instead of “…wow, you dropped out of med school? No, no. I’m just surprised.” people would be all “Look, I’m sure you have your own talents. Not everyone can be funny.”)
Did you guys, speaking of Will Arnett and hilarious things, see 30 Rock? I don’t understand how they can pack so much greatness into 22 minutes. The porn video game! The Amadeus references! BUSINESS DRUNK. The Uncanny Valley concept as illustrated by Star Wars!
“A porn video game can’t be done. History’s greatest perverts have tried: Walt Disney, Larry Flynt, the Japanese…”
I think that tonight I will watch it again.
Something else I would recommend watching is Carrier, a limited-run docuseries currently airing on your local PBS affiliate. It is so excellent! (I told Naomi to watch it, and she said “I don’t think I find aircraft carriers as soothing as you do.”)
The only thing I didn’t get was that the opening sequence is set to The Killers’ “All These Things That I’ve Done”, you know, with the refrain of I’ve got soul, but I’m not a soldier?
…yes, that’s right, I believe that you will find that you’re in the Navy.
Even so! I think it’s excellent, and you should watch it. It’s sort of like watching The Office if Dunder-Mifflin Scranton were afloat and you got like 20 Todd Packers and gave them all Hornets.
