I haven't posted in a while and here's why. The Eureka Reporter website doesn't put my stuff up in a timely or easy to find fashion, so I didn't get my column up at all last week. This week I plan on getting off my computer at work and putting it up in time for ya'll to use it. The weekend is here, and I know you are all dieing to know what do to. I'll also be putting up the stories I wrote for E (Eureka Reporter Entertainment section).
Since I don't have those things for you yet. Here's a list of things you might find funny, because I do.
- Venture Bros. - An Adult Swim cartoon about a family (super scientist dad, teen-age boy adventuring brothers, and body guard) who goes on adventures and fights evil and has scads of problems of their own. It's a situational comedy that builds on it's self, not unlike Arrested Development, so renting the first season and watching it all the way through will really give you a better understanding of the characters and plot lines. For years I had been shown random episodes (the one where they are working on a space ship and the astronaut's name is Major Tom, and something goes wrong), but they have never hooked. Now I'm addicted.
- Metalocalypse - another Adult Swim show. I never watch TV anymore, just TV on DVD, and I love it. No commercials... just straight up entertainment. Anyway, Metalocalypse is the story of a massively successful metal band called Dëthkløk. All the music is done by Brendon Small (creator of Home Movies - if you haven't seen this series you would do well to rent it or buy it). Also, I would advise watching a couple episodes before passing judgment, also if you don't like gore, blood, spikes, fish, humor or Scandinavians - you might not like this show.

P.S. I just checked the ER website and my stuff is up and looking pretty, so you can check that out now. Also it's Friday and the free paper is on the stands, you have no reason to pick one up and grab the E section and keep it all week (even if you have to go out of your way).
