Like many of you I grew up watching Saturday morning cartoons. As a matter of fact, I called Saturday “cartoon day” until I was about seven years old. Back in the golden era of Saturday morning animated entertainment we had incredible (yet bizzaro) shows like Transformers, Thundercats, and the U.S.A. Cartoon Express. While programming like Star Wars: The Clone Wars still provides kids with a bit of “magic”, I fear that the days of utterly ridiculous 80s-style cartoons are long gone… Enjoy this April fools joke from the fine folks at IGN. For the record… I would watch the poop out of this show.
I am what you might call a comedy nerd. I love comedy and standup, and I’m a sucker for a sitcom. Arguably the greatest sitcom of all time is now on sale on Amazon for a measly $84.49. I have not pulled the trigger on this yet, mostly due to an impending move and all the lovely expenses that go along with it.
Also, while I’m on the topic, if you are a Seinfeld fan, you should hop on tumblr and follow Daily Seinfeld. It gives me a smile every day when I get to work.
Augh screw it, it’s an all Seinfeld post. If you have not, for some unearthly reason, watched Comedian yet. You absolutely must. It is a great look into a how a comedian works, what he does, and how he got to where he is. I’ll tell you, it’s not through sitting on his ass. He writes and writes endlessly. Constantly progressing through his bits and tweaking them until perfect. There are a bunch of appearances from other NY comics and it is just a fantastic documentary. So there you go, do it, buy these things and make yourself happy.
