We’re pretty excited about his new book, I Drink for a Reason, not to mention his long overdue tour.
It’s the latest from the directors of Napoleon Dynamite, Jared and Jerusha Hess, and if it’s as awesome as it looks, we’ll forgive them for releasing Nacho Libre. Gentlemen Broncos stars Sam Rockwell and Jemaine Clement—both major pluses—and has a pretty hilarious premise:
Gentlemen Broncos tells the story of a homeschooled teenage outcast and aspiring fantasy writer. He attends a fantasy convention to show off his work and finds his idea, Yeast Lords, becomes ripped off by acclaimed novelist Ronald Chevalier, who has turned desperate for ideas.
Now we don’t know which comedy to be more excited about, Gentlemen Broncos or Mike Judge’s upcoming film Extract.
Check out the Extract trailer after the jump.
Captain Kirk is climbing a mountain…. why is he climbing the mountain?
I love that Katie Couric is a recurring character and just hope Buchanan becomes one too. Best moment: Buchanan’s fleeting guitar solo.
I realize that my IQ dropped about 20 points the moment I posted this, but I still kinda love it. Reminds me of the ‘futuristic’ TV programs in Mike Judge’s Idiocracy. And you’ve got to respect the execution.

I have a new piece over at HuffPost. Here’s a taste:
In what many have perceived as a reversal, president Obama upheld the controversial “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy by refusing to state his opinion of the film “Bruno.” The President, who attended a screening in Dupont Circle on Saturday night, was asked his opinion of the film this morning by former presidential correspondent and current member of the White House Press Corps Helen Thomas.
“Don’t ask me that, Helen,” stated an uncharacteristically flustered Obama. “Look, I’m committed to opening up the dialogue about this and, yes, changing my current policy, but now is not the time to address this.” [...]
Many activists contend that given the success of “Bruno,” the time is now for the president to speak out in support of non-traditional films such as the ones made by Cohen.

OR, we could bring ghostriding to the ‘Burg. Who’s with me?
