Fun Fact: Khloe Kardashian’s aborted fetus is a boss in 2014’s South Park The Stick of Truth

Fun Fact: Khloe Kardashian’s aborted fetus is a boss in 2014’s South Park The Stick of Truth

Think about it. That’s Lamar Odom’s baby. I just thought with all that went on recently with Lamar, that this clip from the 2014 Xbox360 game was even that much more relevant–from a “my own personal amusement” point of view.

I’m friends with a TV exec. that emails with the South Park guys regularly… I really wish I could get in that writers room. The reason that show is so relevant after all of these years is simple: they have a team of rule-breaking, edgy writers that know how to push the envelope. They turn around things fast! If something happens in popular culture, they’re there literally making fun of it a week later. And now they have a brand that is bulletproof. 

Yeah, Yelp sued them for making fun of their shitty service (allegedly), but they pretty much have creative license to go-in on anybody. Like right now, if I was at their compound and in the writers room, we would so be going in on Ronda Rousey. She’s such an easy target right now though, so it’d only be fun if you went after Ronda Rousey (got knocked tf out), Dana White (protected Ronda from having to fight Miesha Tate–yet she still got eviscerated), and Floyd Mayweather (throwing 5AM twerking parties doesn’t prove your literacy)–all at the same time. But I digress… 

Shabooty Review: “Master of None” (Aziz Ansari’s New Netflix Show)

Shabooty Review: “Master of None” (Aziz Ansari’s New Netflix Show)

Some facts: I’ve only watched the first 3 episodes. I was never a huge Aziz Ansari fan. It annoyed me that he got to parade around in Jay-Z and Kanye West videos… while the rest of the world sat at home and watched along on YouTube. Well, my have the tides turned… the rest of the world is sitting at home and watching his new show on Netflix and it’s a breath of fresh air.

Again, I’ve only seen the first 3 episodes, but it encapsulates so much that is rarely shown on TV. But basically let’s put it this way. If you’re a minority, if you’re a single guy, if you’re a nice guy, if you’re the funny, nice, minority guy… your plight is mostly overlooked in America.
No one gives a fu*k if the guy working behind the counter at 7-11 has trouble dating. No one cares if his parents went through hell and high water to come to this country and make a living for their children. But this show shines a light on all of that.  But not in a heavy way. In a funny way. That’s not an easy accomplishment. Sitcoms are dead. This breaks that mold. I am officially an Aziz Ansari fan.

Oh, and his real father appears on the show, and I consulted google. He really is a real doctor! Imagine if you’re getting a finger up your ass and you realize your doctor is the same guy on Netflix. Awkward. Do you get him to sign his used glove afterwords? But I digress… instead of watching Shia LaBeouf watching himself, run, don’t walk, to watch #MasterOfNone on Netflix. 4/4 STARS

For the life of me I can’t muster up the energy to hit the play button on Aziz’s new Netflix series. I am sure it’s good and I’d likely watch it, I am just not in the mood to be sucked into a marathon viewing. I will eventually find a weak moment though and watch it and then love it (maybe). I dunno. We’ll see. I know Hanzi loves it.
