The Federal Communications Commission got 150 complaints about the content of this year's big game. They centered on two events: one was the phallic imagery generated by Prince during his halftime show (pic on the right). Can you guess the other one?
Yup, that Snickers ad with the two guys kissing (Snickers has since pulled the commercial).
The Smoking Gun has the documents, and some of the complaints are hilarious. One viewer says that Prince's giant penis guitar shadow had a traumatic effect on his son: "[my son] hoped to be a quarterback and now he will turn out gay...thanks CBS for turning my son GAY." Another viewer said "God knows I didn't turn on the Super Bowl expecting to be tricked into watching gay sex," which makes me wonder where he usually goes to not be tricked into watching gay sex.
I wonder what these people think about football players slapping each other on the rear after good plays, and then taking showers together after a game. NAKED!

Like all Adult Swim news, information is a bit scarce on this, but here's what I've pieced together: The Court TV series Smoking Gun, based on the popular Web site The Smoking Gun is getting a trial run on Adult Swim starting on October 23 at midnight. It looks like the series will run for eight consecutive days to begin with, and will be yet another fifteen minute series. I never watched the series on Court TV, but apparently it did have one special which was done entirely with puppets and animation, and occasional episodes would also be produced in a similar manner. It seems reasonable that the Adult Swim version would be pretty much the same. Right now, other than having the show listed on their schedule, I see no other information about it, not even on The Smoking Gun's site. If any of you know anything, and by "know anything" I mean you have links to reputable sources that verify your claim, let me know in the comments. Otherwise, I guess we'll keep watching Adult Swim to see what the heck this is all about.

Frey is on Oprah today, along with his publisher, Nan Talese. Oprah is a terrific interviewer so I hope she throws him some tough questions, instead of blindly defending him.
