Bells On Coos & Boos

Coo: Loved Gore's opening bit on SNL! It was a presidential address from a parallel universe in which Gore was elected president in 2000. Transcended the usual "Bush is dumb, isn't that funny?" level of their recent political humor. Laughed my ass off.

Boo: Why did the anti-polygamy working mom on Big Love have to be such a one-dimensional bitch?

Coo: If you haven't rented "Spirited Away" yet, do so immediately. I was pretty skeptical, as I generally hate all the animated features that people are always telling me I have to see, but this one is really as good as the hype.

Boo: The Donna Moss character on the West Wing, who has spent 7 years being underestimated and underappreciated, and who was basically Josh's right hand and second in command in the Santos for President campaign (not counting Janeane "what's up with my eyebrows, anyway" Garofalo and the other hired campaign guns), finally is rewarded for all her hard work by being made Chief of Staff - for the First Lady??? And she's all misty and happy about it??? WTF?

Spirited Away was good. Did you see Princess Monaoke? Its ok. Of course, for a guy, nothing beats Ninja Scroll.

I've never seen one second of "The West Wing." I hear I missed out. Is this true?

You haven't missed out since 2003. It was good until Sorkin left to go eat shrooms and make bad, stupid tv.
