God Bless The Onion
I haven't seen that yet, so I'll take your word for it. It is buried in my Netflix queue somewhere, so presumably, I'll know someday.

I didn't realize I was an apologist, I thought I was just a fan.

Brain Candy doesn't stand with the best of their work, it's true. I enjoyed it when I first saw it in a packed theater with rabid KITH fans, and I've enjoyed it ever since.

To borrow from its MYOF entry, it's far from fiasco. Definitely agree about Foley; it's a shame he basically quit the troop before filming began, and really was only fulfilling contractual duty. I still think it's a worthwhile effort that is more consistently funny than it gets credit for.

As I understood it, he simply didn't have time to fully commit because he was doing Newsradio at the time. The rest of them were basically unemployed.

That's what I always assumed. I was really just relaying it the way that Rabin talked about it in the MYOF entry.

Not nitpicking, but wasn't McKinney a regular on SNL at that point?

Nation Demands Fresh Celebrity Meat

Quote:

Ideally, ravenous sources said, the new celebrity should be under the age of 6, so that he or she can be slowly and fully devoured, much like what has been called the "perfect storm" of celebrity self-destruction: the life of Michael Jackson.

"Forced into fame by an abusive father, robbed of his childhood by a greedy public, and then ascending to superstar status, acquiring huge sums of money and even greater debt, growing progressively more and more insane, getting indicted for child molestation, and eventually dying of a heart attack brought on by massive doses of half a dozen different prescription drugs, followed by a hypocritical backswing into near deification after his death, Michael Jackson was a most delicious and bountiful feast."
