One of the most hilarious dudes who ever lived would like to interrupt his regularly scheduled program of being ultra silly and school you on the misused expression (also my pet peeve) "I could care less." For folks who are scratching their heads, and who regularly use this, let's think for a moment. If you could care less, that means that the thing you're trying to say you don't care about, you do care about just a little because there are other things you hypothetically, could care less about. Mmmkay? But I'll let Cleese do it, cuz he's got cool charts and a better delivery.
Call us crazy but we think the Alexander McQueen Spring 2009 show is tapping into some kind of perverse cultural fear of snuggly critters with his very disturbing catwalk closing red eyed rabbit. We don't like to get too pop cultural around here but we simply can't help it. David Lynch's Inland Empire Rabbits, Donny Darko's monster bunny, Monty Python's killer rabbit and South Park's Woodland creatures are all part of a strange cultural lexicon of rabbits and upsetting circumstances. So much for a cuddly bunny huh? All we can say is RUN AWAY! RUN AWAY!
BBC America, that is. The American BBC has acquired the rights to all four seasons of Monty Python's Flying Circus — along with "a pair of specials the troupe did for West German television" — and will air them in a 10-hour marathon on Memorial Day, Monday May 26. According to Zap2It:
The Flying Circus episodes have been digitally remastered, allowing fans of the Cheese Shop, "How Not to Be Seen" and Spam a fresh look at the classic sketch series.
It also includes the lesser-seen pair of "Fliegender Zirkus" West German TV specials, including one in which Graham Chapman, Eric Idle, John Cleese, Terry Jones and Michael Palin performed new sketches in phonetic German.
Flying Circus has aired on TV in past years, though never on BBC America. Who else is making a mental note to set the TiVo on May 26?
