Great episode. It was probably one of the better episodes. It didn’t lack in humour and was as politically incorrect as usual. It’s a shame we’re only getting 2 more episodes before it all ends. But I guess we should just take what we can get. Here are some of the screens of last weeks show:

We saw it a couple of years ago when niche directors like Wong Kar-Wai, Ang Lee, Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu were offered to create short and unique films featuring cars from BMW. "The Hire" featured 8 films with various directors, which all starred Clive Owen, were highly entertaining and allowed people to forget that they were watching a long ass commercial about BMW. Since its success, Nissan tried to capitalize and produce their own short film with John Bruno (directed True Lies, T2: Judgement Day). American Express recently followed suit with their own unique 2 minute short films featuring directors and "sell outs" (im just kidding, id do the same in a heartbeat) Wes Anderson (Royal Tenanbaums, Bottle Rocket, The Life Aquatic) and M Night Shyamalan (Sixth Sense, Signs, The Village). Although not as entertaining as BMW's or Nissan's films, the two directors manage to put their own trademark/style in their commercials and did an excellent job not cramming American Express down our throats.

Ah its the end of Season 6-A for The Sopranos. But i'm not bitching. Since the Sopranos are over for this year, it only means that Entourage is starting up again. Yup. I'm been waiting for this to come. Yes. its JUST a TV show. I'm such a loser. I know but this is motherfucking Entourage! It's not your typical network television show. In my opinion, its probably the most entertaining show on tv right now (with the exception of The Sopranos and Lost, both on hiatus) and it definitely kept me wanting more after the first 2 seasons with its laugh out loud and witty quotable guy humour. When it comes to guy humour, they're bang on with the dialogue that most guys have. Season 3 premiere was no different. It wasn't the greatest episode I've seen and definitely seemed kinda off. Like it didn't have the same feel as the first 2 seasons. Perhaps it was all the media hype that came with the premiere but I expected the best episode ever. It was definitely short on laughs and jokes but as a loyal fan I'm definitely not going to stop watching.

 


MTV commercials have always been ultra creative and innovative but this motion-graphics commercial to promote MTV's new HD channel produced by Psyop, a New York-based firm, is truly breathtaking. Vector and rendered images of morphing black birds and trees are set above the musicial score of Beethoven's "Moonlight Sonata". TRUST ME, its worth checking out.


Chappelle Come Back!

You MUST watch this!

I was listening to his stand up on the way to work. "For What It's Worth" is by far his best material to date. I've listened to this at least 3, 4 times and still cracks the shit out of me. I forgot how funny the guy is. I swear I was smirking the whole trip to work. Of course the people on the MTR were giving me weird looks.

"White people drink grape juice. Ya'll didn't know I knew about grape juice didja? Black people have grape drink. You know that Sunny Delight commercial where all those kids look in the fridge and they all look and go YAY SUNNY D but the black kid's like "Hey, I want some of that purple stuff." That's grape drink. That's the ingredients, sugar, water, PURPLE. Go over to your white friend's house, Todd, can I interest you in a glass of grape juice?" "What?! What the fuck is juice? I want some grape drink baby. Mmm its purple." "I dunno what grape drink is." "What?!" "I have some apple juice if…" "Nigga what the fuck is juice!! I want some apple drink!! Its green!!"" (Chappelle, For What It's Worth, 2005)

Haiii…its a shame Comedy Central and Chappelle can't just get along and work things out. Oh well. Fortunately for us fans, Comedy Central will be releasing a couple of episodes sometime mid summer which were supposed to be part of season 3. Good ol' Charlie Murphy will be hosting them.
