Clichés and Big Games

June 23, 2005

Spurs vs. Pistons, Game 7, tonight. If you're not interested, you're just not an NBA fan at all. I know people who have grown dissatisfied with the pro game, who have barely watched at all in years, who told me that they'll be watching tonight. As for people who want to say that Tim Duncan's legacy is on the line... they can blow it out their ass. Duncan has two championship rings and is on his way to becoming one of the all-time best power forwards (if not THE best) that the game has ever seen. That's all I have to say on that for now.

MSN has a great article about the 10 Worst TV Sitcom Clichés of all-time. The list reminded me yet again of why I tend to hate sitcoms in general, and why the decline of the genre has been something I've thoroughly enjoyed seeing in this decade. Granted, I don't know that the likes of I Want To Be A Hilton are that much better, but at least there's no laugh track. I hate laugh tracks. I despise them. I loathe them. I think you get the point.

Something tells me that I'm going to make a strong effort to see The Aristocrats -- and that I'm going to thoroughly enjoy hearing people go into a rage over it who never actually saw the movie. I mean, one can only imagine what the we-know-what's-best-for-you types will say about a film with a tagline that reads: "No nudity. No violence. Unspeakable obscenity." It drew rave reviews at the Sundance Film Festival. The fact that what makes it so offensive can't even be described in most publications will draw people in, with the curiosity card being played in championship form. It's slated for an August 12 release, the same weekend as Deuce Bigelow: European Gigolo. A Rob Schneider sequel? Now that's offensive.
