Friday Filecabinet 8.3

Posted by Adam on August 18, 2006

A little bit of everything to disucss, but thus is the point of the filecabinet.  Movies, sports, television, and plenty of mindless banter.  Let’s get it on!

  • Last week NBC was kind enough to deem us a Last Comic Standing, and that comic’s name is Josh Blue.  For those of you who didn’t watch the show, Josh has cerebal paulsey and is physically handicap.  Is that the reason he won?  It isn’t the only reason he won, and I think that’s the best way to put it.  Mr. Blue is a funny dude, but so was his co-finalist Ty Barnett.  It would be silly to think that compassion and pity didn’t have a role in the final vote, but that’s not to say the result would’ve been any different.  Josh is very clever and quick witted, with much of his routine being very topical, but there is no defining bit of his that can easily be recalled and retold to your friends who haven’t seen him.  This is why Josh Blue will never make it big.  Kudos to him for winning though.
  • In other television news, G4 (the station formerly known as TV for gamers, but perhaps now known as the station that airs lots of Star Trek) will start airing Arrested Development weeknights at 11:30 starting September 4th.  While the episodes won’t be new, this is still very exciting news as Arrested Development is one of the funniest, if not the funniest, comedy to air in the 21st century.  G4 has been trying to compete with Adult Swim for viewship for the better part of this year, and while Banzai, Ed the Sock, and TV Funhouse may not have made the splash they were hoping for Arrested Development should draw away some viewers.  After all if I have to decide between watching an episode of Family Guy for the 20th time or AD for the second, I’m going with the Bluths.
  • The minds behind Aqua Teen Hunger Force have made a movie that was first rumored to come out this past Spring, but now is rumored for a September release.  I say rumored because I have not found an official release date, and seeing as how September is just weeks away and it has already been bumped back once I am hesitant to commit.  When it does come out I will waste no time in seeing it though, as ATHF is non-sensical comedy gold.  Some information about the picture is available, including its fantastic title:  The Aqua Teen Hunger Force Movie Film for Theaters.  Also to be rumored as part of the movie was a 40 minute drum solo by Master Shake . . . sadly this scene doesn’t appear to be part of the final cut.
  • Evander Holyfield is schedule to get back in the ring and fight again tonight against some guy I’ve never heard of.  Based on this information I am going to pick the unknown guy to win in six rounds.  We’re getting close to the point where Holyfield is only going to retire when he can’t physically make it into the ring on his own.  Is it too cruel to wish one of these guys kills the man?  OK, maybe murder is a little harsh, how about just maiming him to life in a wheel chair?
  • In other ridiculous sports news, Junior Seau retired Monday after an NFL career sure to secure his place in the Hall of Fame.  Not so ridiculous sounding, right?  Reports have surfaced that Seau is planning to sign with the New England Patriots today.  Can’t John McCain pass some legislature that makes retirement in professional sports binding?  This sort of stuff happens all the time.  At least in professional wrestling when a guy loses a retirement match they wait a few months to a year before bringing him back, and even then they usually attempt to repackage the guy as a different character.  And on that note I’d like to announce my retirement from the Stream of Consciousness … at least for today.
