Sometimes I wonder

why I bother to maintain a jonsonblog when this guy sums up all my thoughts about life so eloquently.

You owe it to yourself

June 23, 2006

to be watching a show called The Thick of It, Fridays on BBC America.  Winner of two British Emmy's (called BAFTAs) for best comedy (beating out Ricky Gervais' HBO show Extras) and best actor, and drowning in universal acclaim, it's easily the funniest thing on television now that Arrested Development's been killed.  I watched the first six episodes, and it's on a brief hiatus now, but when it starts up again you should check it out.  Like Curb Your Enthusiasm, only plot points are scripted, much is improvised, and the result is the most natural dialogue I've ever seen on a show.  Likewise, the actors all have incredible comic timing.  The highlight of the show is Peter Capaldi (from Local Hero) as the Prime Minister's pitbull of an enforcer, Malcom Tucker.  Streams of profanity have never been so eloquent nor hilarious.  A word of warning: if you had a hard time following the language in the British version of The Office, this is not for you; with the rapid fire conversations, profane slang and thick accents, this is more like the nightclubbing scene in Trainspotting, but for the whole episode.

My awesomeness

Apparently, Google's PageRank is a living, breathing thing that constantly learns & evolves, and as such, rankings change from time to time.  However, for the moment, I'm delighted to see that as of right now, I'm the number one result for the phrase "Fucking nerds."  I may need to revisit my chart:
