The State on DVD

Some of you know. Some of you know and don’t care. Some of you neither know, nor care, but I’m feeling great right now and want to share this.

I’ll have you know I’m in a really good mood this morning due to looking this stuff up right now.

Rumors about The State coming to DVD have been around for a long time, but my knowledge of the confirmation has only been solidified recently. I’d probably known for at least a month or two (thanks Lindsay!), but then forgot about it because it had been just a rumor for so long.

Here’s what’s up. THE STATE IS COMING TO DVD.

From Wiki:
The State’s official website reported in November that the DVD set was completed, but that their distributor, MTV, has “chosen not to release the set at this time. We don’t know why.”[5] As of January 29, 2008, Michael Showalter has confirmed that MTV is still delaying the release: “They have it. We’ve made the DVD, and it exists. It’s out of our hands, and I know who has it, but I don’t know why they’re waiting… we’ve done the commentary and the deleted material and all that stuff, but I just don’t know when it’s coming out. “[6] The State’s official FAQ currently states:
“There is NO WAY to get any episodes of The State on tape, unless you trade with other fans or buy bootlegs on eBay. The only other recourse is to beg MTV to rerun the show or to release episodes on video. Try writing MTV Home Video, 1515 Broadway, NY NY 10036, or MTV Programming Dept, same address. Or write to Comedy Central, 1775 Broadway, NYC, 10019.”[3]

If you’re a fan of Reno911 or Kids In The Hall or just good sketch comedy, MARK YOUR CALENDARS: July 14, 2009! Just in time to work up a good hangover for the sixth Harry Potter movie coming out the next day. 😉

People Scare Me

Horrifying. There are some truly scary folks in this world. Hopefully his prison sentence will mirror something like the conditions he kept her in, plus the fact that she gave birth to SEVEN CHILDREN over time… *shudder*

It’s confusing to me though – how did no one ever look in the basement? Did he live with his wife and forbid her to go down there? How did no one hear the girl? Did he soundproof the walls or build another antechamber? I don’t want to look up more details now, but I feel like I’m missing some major details.

Humans are too scary for the fiction bestseller list.

Jesus Vs the Dinos – link exchange

Starting you off with a balanced breakfast of 100 Links to Inspire Your Designs, courtesy of Mashable.com.

In other news: a tuatara!

Also, some folks at a church said they saw the face of Jesus in a seat cushion. Uh, that looks more like a Golem to me, but whatever works, I guess.

Parasitic Telepathic Octopii

Just wanted to let you all know that a coworker let me borrow Stephenie Meyer’s new book, “The Host”.

I’m about 2 chapters in, and my subject line seems to sum it up accurately so far.

It is late, and that is all. Tomorrow: more.

And thirdly, the link that almost made me put my fist through the monitor… remember that chick who decided that having EIGHT MORE KIDS was awesome? Apparently she can’t pay her bills with unconditional love AND IS ASKING FOR DONATIONS ONLINE

I am so COMPLETELY FLABBERGASTED at this that I want to just go curl up in bed until the world wears off.

Stephen Colbert Tells Kanye To Sit Down & Shut Up

…praise the lord!

I won’t even get into a full rant, because that would require too much energy. He just needs to go away now. My bitterness towards him might not be so overwhelming if my neighbors didn’t play his crap every weekend on the same looping playlist with MIA and Daft Punk and T.E.C.H.N.O. Not even anything good, just the kind you’d hear if somebody was doing a parody about it. They’re starting to put some older Smashing Pumpkins in their playlist now, which makes me sad because I like Smashing Pumpkins.

I digress. This is not a post about my neighbors, this is an anti-KW post. Oh, btw, I enjoy lots and LOTS of music, just… on my own schedule and maybe not cranked all the way up starting at 10PM.

Alright. So, “American Boy” is a good song, and only because Estelle sounds so good has it redeemed that garbage where Kanye stole “sampled” the beat from Daft Punk. “Slow Jamz” was good and only because of Twista and the beatz. Kanye himself was good when he had that one song out, “If iiiii ruled the world…”

Oh wait. That was NAS.

Anyway, I LOVE YOU STEPHEN.

Sunglasses display mannequin ftw, haha!

Let’s hope this gets contained and controlled quickly. In the meantime, I may never eat instant ramen again.
