Corner Gas

This show is hysterical! I hate to say it, but it's kind of like a Canadian Seinfeld. A show about nothing. Each show is independent of the other, no running storylines. Each character could be spun off on it's own, but as a whole, the cast is great. I read that they are going to stop production, but it's been on for 6 seasons, so I have a lot more to catch up on. WGN is going to start running 3 in a row in the early mornings, so my Tivo will be working hard!

Andrew McCarthy ... sigh ... what's happened to him? I tried ... really really tried to watch a movie he did called New World Disorder. I couldn't get through it! It was interesting at first because Rutger Hauer played a really fat cop and McCarthy played a bad guy, but he was really awful and it broke my heart, so I had to delete it before getting into it for longer than 30 minutes. Bad Andrew!

There's a song going through my head. You can hear it on the Toyota Prius commercial where a car literally is made out of sticks and grass and then decomposes back into the earth. The song is haunting ... here's the commerical:


The song is called Hometime by the band One EskimO. The entire song is fantastic and it is supposedly available on Itunes, but it's not :( the video for the song is on One EskimO's website and it's a haunting video too.

I forgot to mention that another reason why I'm digging Nip/Tuck is that the guy from Aliens In America, Raja, is in it as a young doctor. It really bummed me out that they cancelled Aliens in America, but at least one of the characters found work on another very cool show.
