Superjail!: The best show ever!

Ok, well, I guess Mad Men is better, but I think that’s about it for list of shows I definitely can say is better than Superjail!

Superjail! is the new cartoon series on Cartoon Network’s [adult swim] programming block about a secret underground jail which kidnaps the most dangerous inmates from real jails around the world for a super-advanced incarceration. And, David Wain is the warden of the titular mega-jail.

David Foster Wallace is dead?


This is a really sad day.

Jonathan Franzen may finally get his wish to destroy experimental fiction fulfilled.

One can only hope this is some sort of a horrible joke, which is definitely a possibility since David Foster Wallace has been known to be quite an eccentric.

Delta Air Lines safety video on WSJ.

WSJ., the new “lifestyle” magazine from The Wall Street Journal, has an article on safety video shown by various air carriers around the world.

The WSJ. article picked Delta’s new safety video as the best, noting that the narrating flight attendant has a striking resemblance to Angelina Jolie.

And, I agree. Assuming “striking resemblance to Angelina Jolie” is a code phrase for “striking resemblance to transsexual party promoter Amanda Lepore,” of course.

There Will Be Blood Blu-ray disc sold out

Blu-ray version of There Will Be Blood, which goes on sale today in North America, is sold out, and it’s only 3 a.m. on the east coast.

Is it the killer title Blu-ray camp has been looking for, or did Paramount screw up manufacturing and couldn’t deliver enough discs on the release date?

Xavier: Renegade Angel premiere is tonight at 6 p.m.

Xavier: Renegade Angel, the new show from Vernon Chatman and John Lee (of the Wonder Showzen fame), centers around Xavier, half-man, half-bird superhero with a snake for left arm, who travels the world “[f]acing rednecks, inflicting righteousness and preaching religiously about the ‘strong, silent types’ and moralism.”

The premiere’s at 6 p.m. ET on [adult swim], which, of course, is not available in Canada.

I guess I’ll be watching it… umm… some other way that may or may not be entirely legal.

Update: The first episode has now been posted in full.
