Gome of the Week
I just read that they cancelled the Andy Richter show for this hunk o' crap. I don't know how they managed to rip off The Wonder Years and Malcolm In the Middle all at the same time, but boy, they did it.
A big "what the hell?" to David Cross for narrating this mess. Thought you were cool, dude.
This Week's Link That's Probably Not That Great
Another CAC? - This is a weird one, to say the least. What are the odds?
This Week's Movie You've Probably Never Seen
The Maxx (1995)
Dude, it's about time I tracked this one down. It's been way too long since I've seen it.
It's really amazing that MTV had their act together enough to put this on the air. It was about 8 years ago, so I guess things were simpler back then. Ah, good times.
The Maxx is a crazy purple super hero who is also homeless, and he can't figure out if he's really homeless or a superhero. It's fairly complicated.
Anyway, I don't usually like comic book superhero type stuff, but this is the bomb diggidty.
This Week's Record You're Probably Not Listening To
Russell Simins - Public Places (2000)
The drummer from The John Spencer Blues Explosion goes solo and makes a weird drum machine acoustic album that is pretty damn good. It's kind of all over the place, but what the hey.
If his biggest gripe is that his girlfriend wants him to get it on with him in public places, I think he'll be alright.
