Americans were obsessed by disaster in the 1970s. Towering infernos, Poseidon adventures and, of course, the Rapture. Proof that Christians have a long tradition of (unskillfully) exploiting pop culture — watch here.
Those MSM dinosaurs (more on them later) persist on labeling MTV’s awards shows as irreverent or cutting edge. First off, awards shows are anything but. And, to paraphrase Kim Gordon from the "Homerpalooza" episode, MTV is (only slightly) about (crappy) music, (lots and lots of) advertising and (even more) youth-oriented product positioning. Hence the award given to "Transformers" — directed by the hackiest of hacks, Michael Bay — as "Best Summer Movie You Haven’t Seen Yet."
Not if MTV has anything to do with it.
As for the penultimate episode of "The Sopranos" — brilliant. We better get a two-hour finale next week.
Not a parody, but it should be — watch here.
The president (Peter Sellers) converses with his Russian counterpart — watch here.
