The Daily Show: January 15, 2007

Jon Stewart"Strangers with Condi" (heh, they even used the Strangers with Candy image... Nice): Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice faced a barrage of angry Senators on Thursday. I had a nice laugh at the inclusion of Principal Vernon from The Breakfast Club and Senator William Wonka (that scene from Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory always cracks me up, for some reason). California's Barbara Boxer seemed to imply that a huge reason why Rice fails to see the trouble we're in is because she doesn't have any children. Jon decided to take one for the team and seduce Rice... Yes. All for the good of our nation. The mood lighting! The music! The huge book of Russian history! So hot. Never has the word "redeploy" sounded so sexy. Rawr.

South Park season eight on DVD August 29

south parkSouth Park has been doing a fine job of getting the season sets out in a timely manner, and on August 29 the eighth season will be available. Some of the episodes, such as "Awesom-O" and "Stupid Spoiled Whore Video Playset" are already available on the recent "best of" DVD, but this season also had some other great episodes, such as "The Passion of the Jew," "Good Times with Weapons" (in which Butters is accidentally hit in the eye with a ninja star so the boy's dress him up as a dog and take him to a vet), "Something Wall-Mart This Way Comes," and, possibly the best South Park Christmas episode ever, "Woodland Critter Christmas." The set will contain all fourteen episodes from the season, and the usual mini-commentaries from Matt and Trey.

Joe Rogan loves it when his fans hate

by Adam Finley, posted Apr 19th 2006 2:06PM

joe roganFirst, comedian Joe Rogan of Fear Factor got into an online debate with a kid half his age, and then later smoothed things over with the kid. Now Rogan may be courting controversy again with this fifty-page thread on his messageboard. The thread wasn't started by Rogan; it was actually started by a board member who found out that another board member, whom he disliked, was part of a support group for obese people. Apparently this was the culmination of an ongoing battle of wits among the members of the board, and like most messageboards, conversation eventually devolved into personal attacks and racist insults. This kind of behavior on messageboards is hardly news, but apparently Rogan decided to toss in his support for the thread, even adding a few insults of his own. Rogan apparently loves the raw and unfiltered power of the internet, even if his participation in it might be construed by some as indirectly supporting anti-Semitic sentiments.

Oprah's book club: a Holocaust memoir

by Anna Johns, posted Jan 17th 2006 10:07AM
It looks as though Oprah Winfrey has been browsing the nonfiction aisles of the bookstore. While the authenticity of her last Oprah's Book Club selection is still in question, she has moved on to assign her faithful readers another memoir: Night, by Elie Wiesel. You may recognize his name for the Nobel Peace Prize he won in 1986 for decades of writing against hatred and racism. Wiesel's first novel (he calls it a memoir) chronicles his family's experience in Auschwitz during the Holocaust. Oprah said the book "should be required reading for all of humanity." Next month, Oprah will also hold a high school essay contest about the book, in which 50 selected writers will be flown to Chicago to be part of the audience when Wiesel is a guest. She will also visit Auschwitz with Wiesel, which should make for one very powerful hour of television.
