The King Is Gone But Not Forgotten

  • The Monologue:
    • Drew Brees won Sports Illustrated's Sportsman of the Year award, the most shocking news since the sun came up this morning. (For the record, I wanted Josh Hamilton.)
    • To protest a rule that low-income people could not use WIC to buy white potatoes, a man in Washington ate only potatoes for two months. The U.S. Department of Agriculture responded by not caring.
    • Interpol is searching for the head of WikiLeaks. If only there was some sort of organization that could release information on where he's hiding...
  • Random Pop Culture:
    • After a relatively weak (or, more appropriately, meandering) season, the Sons of Anarchy finale was outstanding. The whole episode was good, but the point from when SAMCRO was waiting for the Russian Mafia on? Great music, great camera work, great twist, satisfying ending down even to the setup for next season. Bravo.
    • Thursday night, 8PM, TNT: Heat at Cavs. I won't watch the whole thing, but I'm sure as hell watching the beginning and tuning in a couple of minutes early.
    • I'm going to have to see this movie at some point after this spectacular review. The best is the director's Uwe Boll-esque -- minus the curses -- sentiment at the end.
  • Random Video:
    • More from 1992. It was a sick year. At some point, I'll list the albums that came out.
