Math Is A Wonderful Thing

I had a feeling summer was winding down, but I finally got my proof yesterday.

My top two accomplishments for Tuesday, August 29th:
  • I finished watching my sister's complete series DVD of Freaks and Geeks. To the unfamiliar, unfortunate many who aren't familiar with this show, I say only this: watch it. It was one of those too good for TV programs that lasted a season and a quarter before being cancelled so Micheal J. Fox could make his triumphant return to network TV. It's the most true to life show I know of, but that doesn't keep it from being on of the funniest.
  • I purchased Arrested Development Season 3. This show just refused to stop being funny even as the good people at FOX rushed to shut it down. If the names Gob, Buster, and Tobias mean nothing to you, you are missing out my friend. I have yet to crack open season 3 (watching AD is definitely a social activity, and my fellow AD freaks are out of town at the moment), but I'm going to try to finish them before school starts. Homework has a way of getting in the way of my sittin' around time.

Also: I spent a lot of my downtime yesterday surfing the web with high speed internet. It's real nice. My highlights were this preview of a bitchin' Wii game called Red Steel, and these Sam Walker porno sites.

Hey all you U of M nerds, when do you leave for school? And Josh Mattson, when do you leave for your exciting new career? Everybody make sure to keep blogging. If I can make time in my busy schedule at BHS to post 3 or 4 times a day, surely you can fill some of your gaping spans of downtime with a little post now and then.

AD is a pretty good show, max. i'm not a hardcore watcher, but the few times i've seen it, it has made me laugh out loud, which is a feat few shows other than family guy and south park can accomplish.

Arrested Developmemnt was just far too intelligent for mainstream America, sadly. Hands down, one of the funniest shows ever.

I've seen the first season of AD a few times, but I would VERY much like to see more.

MAX.
i need you to make sure maya watches "the ocean walker" before she gets back to school so she understands my reference, k? k. thanks.

and see, i completely disagree on the "arrested development was too intelligent for mainstream America". Shit's funny, y'know? On any level. You know who it was too intelligent for? The Fox marketing team. Fuck them.

M: Was that part of your trick?

GOB:That wasn't part of my trick.

Next time...

GOB:It was part of my ILLUSION!

I hope that's the part you're referencing. And she watched it with me last night.

"Freaks and Geeks," I always wanted to see that show. I've only heard good things about it. I'll definitely try to find a copy somewhere.
