You may have already seen or heard this clip before. It’s a flight attendant on Southwest Airlines doing a rap of the airline announcements. It’s very creative and quite enjoyable. Over a million people have watched this clip on YouTube. The airline should give this man a raise for all of the free publicity he has given their company. Check it out.
This gag is not new, but I ran across this picture in a folder with some old email attachments. I thought it would be worth sharing for a laugh.
A couple of months back, my brother turned me on to a hilarious TV show called Arrested Development. It aired on Fox for three seasons from 2003-2006, when it was then canceled by the network. I had heard of the title in the past, but had no idea what the show was actually like. So I started renting the DVDs from Netflix, starting from the very beginning. Today, I have almost finished watching the entire first season. The show is very funny! It is a character show, and getting familiar with the cast and characters are essential to your enjoyment. You’ll find that the casting for each character is just perfect. If you want to check out the show, plan to watch four to five episodes before you get a true understanding of each character. Once you’re hooked, you’ll fall in love with this show’s humor and crazy whit!
It’s a shame that this show was ultimately canceled by Fox. However, according to Internet rumors, an Arrested Development movie is due out sometime in 2009! I haven’t been able to find a release date or finalized plot details, but IMDB already has a page for this future movie, which I assume is still in the making. What fun! I look forward to it!
This is one of the funniest, most ridiculous videos I have ever seen. It is a video from 1978 of William Shatner singing Rocket Man. I have had it on my list of favorites on YouTube for some time, and tonight I played it again, and almost fell out of my chair. It’s a must-see. Ha!
I watched Superbad this week! I had heard great things about this movie and couldn’t wait until it was released on DVD. That day finally came, and after watching it, I have to say I agree with the hype. It was hilarious! I simply loved it. The content will probably appeal most to high school and college kids, but anyone with the right sense of humor will love it too.
The story was great, the jokes were funny, and the casting was superb. The casting was what really made this movie. The actors chosen for these roles were perfect and absolutely spot-on. While watching this movie and rolling with its hilarity, I felt I was watching what would become a cult classic, whose magic could never be recaptured in a sequel. Bravo to the makers of this film! It was the funniest movie of 2007.
Since it is Christmas time, I thought I’d share this great holiday listen with you. This is David Sedaris on NPR from 1992 reading from his Santaland Diaries.
Have you seen this terrible reality show on the Sci-Fi channel? It is so lame it makes me cringe in embarrassment for the people on there. This show is a cheesy low-budget reality elimination show where a group of losers compete to be the next superhero. They dress in ridiculous outfits and spout lame taglines as they complete seemingly ordinary tasks that are presented on TV with an overlay of grade school quality special effects. The show is hosted by 85 year-old Stan Lee, who communicates with the heroes in their warehouse “lair”. It boggles the mind, but the contestants actually behave as though there is some real prize to be won or that they are actually going to become a true superhero. The lamest of the contestants is this chubby lady dressed in a maid outfit, complete with hanging feather dusters from her belt, who calls herself Hygenea.
In doing a quick bit of research for this post, I found a message board on the Sci-Fi Channel website where fans post messages about the show. I am in awe of the absurdity of their comments. Viewers write of holding their loved ones on the couch while watching the superheros compete, wiping back tears, and feeling overwhelming emotion at what they are watching. They then sign their posts with a photo of themselves in costume, complete with an ID card for their personal superhero character. Are these people serious?!
Let me be clear that I don’t watch this show! I just saw an episode on this week and ended up watching it play out in utter disbelief to what the reality show scene has become. I feel so embarrassed for these people! This show belongs on Comedy Central, not on Sci-Fi — if it has a place on TV at all. The grand prize should be a gun that they can off themselves with when the show is over.
