It has now been five years since Dave Chappelle left the entertainment world to go chill out on his Ohio farm.  At first, his absence from Comedy Central simply meant a lot of unsuccessful sketch shows in his former time slot.  Now, the lack of Chappelle in the social commentary is hurting out country.  No other black comedian since has had a similar television show, and those that do (Tyler Perry) aren’t funny and show white America the “Family Matters” side of black America.  Chappelle made us all laugh at the blatant racism and bigotry that still exists in our country despite all the talk of equality and a “post-racial” society.  Whether it be the Gay KKK, Friday Night Sissy Fights, Real Real World, The World is Not Meant for Us, or any other sketch, Chappelle was not only making us laugh but also making us think just a little bit.

Alright, I’m not going to go into some diatribe about the socio-economic importance of black comic commentary in America, although I could, but that wouldn’t be in line with the Ranty McRanterson policy on seriousness (none is allowed).  So, Mr. Chappelle, if you’re listening…PLEASE COME BACK.  Here is a list of possible sketches I thought of for you.  You don’t have to pay me for them, just come back.  If you don’t, the possibility exists that Demetri Martin or Carlos Mencia would get a show again.  Do you really want that on your conscience Dave?  Do you?

DISCLAIMER: Paying homage to the Enduring Vision, I have decided to continue one of Josh’s regular features that I loved so much: Posting some Yahoo! Movie’s User Reviews. For some reason, you tend to see the most ridiculous ideas, spelling and punctuation on these forums. Anyway, I hope Josh doesn’t sue me. You see, I’m rebroadcasting with implied oral consent, not express written consent. Enjoy!

     I was watching Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith earlier today and was struck with the inspiration required for writing this post. I was considering the great debate about which is better, Old Star Wars or New Star Wars. The Old Star Wars Trilogy includes Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope, Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, and Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi, all released in the late 70’s to early 80’s. The New Star Wars Trilogy includes Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace, Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones, and Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, all released in the late 90’s to early aughts. The two trilogies have very different styles and I don’t feel like explaining all this so just look it up yourself. I can be a lazy bastard, it’s my post jerk.

     As my first comeback post, I decided to take it easy. No need to rush into anything willy-nilly and possibly pull a mental muscle. Therefore it will be another review.

     Just to put my biases out there right away, I think Grey’s Anatomy sucks ass. I have found only one redeeming quality about the show, and that’s that they played a Mike Doughty song during one of the episodes (I heard). Actually, I’m not sure if I like a show like Grey’s Anatomy degrading a Doughty classic. What I don’t understand is how a show like Grey’s Anatomy could become so popular. Let’s compare this show to some of the other medical related shows out there right now.
