An interview with the creators of South Park, right before the airing of the episode that reminded us yet again of radical Islam’s deep and unyielding respect for freedom of speech and diversity of opinion:

Has Audi turned fascist?

That’s a conclusion to be drawn from this Super Bowl commercial, in which the so-called Green Police arrest citizens in their homes for overheating a hot tub, using the wrong light bulb, and basically doing anything that the Alvatar himself wouldn’t approve of (all set to a light-hearted soundtrack). The company will probably say the whole thing’s tongue in cheek. I think it’s creepy.

Adios, Conando

I didn’t watch too many episodes of The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien, thereby probably contributing to its lower-than-expected ratings, but much of what I did see was pure genius. Of course, I’m biased, since I’ve been a fan of Conan from his Late Night days. He was (is) nicer than Letterman, more off-the-wall than Leno, and he had (has) a talent for making interviews with even the most astonishingly boring guests fun. But while I think his humor transferred well to Los Angeles, I still associate him with New York. Whatever happens, here’s hoping his next show isn’t in a 7-Eleven parking lot.

The Dirty Bomb Diaries

Posted in television on December 18, 2009 by Jonathan

As Hollywood continues to veer Leftward (Avatar opens Friday), the Internet seems the natural medium through which conservatives, libertarians, and all other non-Leftists can present their politically-charged movies.

The Dirty Bomb Diaries, according to this reviewer, isn’t an overtly political show — it’s about a young woman surviving, as the title implies, a dirty bomb detonation — but it has things conservatives can appreciate, like the idea that you can’t rely on the government to save your life. (That the trailer shows the young woman buying a gun for protection is a bonus.)

The DBD is, thus far, distributed solely through the Internet. We’ll see if it makes it to network TV at some point.
