Today’s Quote: “Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is not putting it in fruit salad.” — Mandy


I happened to see yesterday that Drawn Together will be returning to Comedy Central soon. I’m hoping that it will be as good as the previous seasons but I’ve seen Comedy Central screw up a great program before. I also see they are bringing back The Sarah Silverman Program. Haven’t we suffered enough? I think she has potential if she can wean herself from the Comedy Central teat. I’ve actually seen her be funny once. You’d think that a network calling themselves Comedy Central would know something about what’s funny.

There was a time when they had lots of funny and humorous programming but now it’s mostly asinine, pre-masticated pap for the hoi polloi. But the hoi polloi prefers everything homogenized and pre-masticated for them — their entertainment, their fashion, their morality, their patriotism, their culture, their education, you name it, it’s packaged for them.

Is there a logical reason why only the first season of Drawn Together is available on DVD? Where can I get the other seasons? And I’ve got to get the complete Coupling DVD set. I love that show, more with every episode. There is so much wisdom in that show and so many other elements you never see or hear in lame American television productions.


Yes, there was plenty of mastication this evening, probably too much of it. I feel a bit guilty about it now.
