But I'm Not Wearing Any Sundae Monday
This week is going to be all over the place because there's a lot going on right now.
First, I want to mention the passing of George Carlin. He will be remembered for his roles in Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure, Dogma and Shining Time Station. But he will be best remembered for his stand up comedy. Carlin is held among the highest ranks with Richard Pryor and Lenny Bruce. Enjoy those Seven Words:
If you haven't seen it yet, you should go and see The Animation Show Year 4. I think that The Animation Show is extremely important in the world of animation for giving a decent release to a collection of short films, something which is sorely lacking from the rest of the film world, except that time in February when the Academy Award Nominated Shorts get their own program. But The Animation Show attracts a different sort of audience. Hopefully someone like Judd Apatow can curate something similar for live action shorts. A man can dream. Some films from this year's lineup are available online.
Finally, I want to share this for those of you who did not see it this past Thursday. Stephen Colbert has spent over two years trying to find what he terms a formidable opponent. He finally has.
