Another favorite Boondocks episode

"A Date With The Health Inspector" - one of the funniest episodes in the series, including a tribute to Pulp Fiction. Featuring Charlie Murphy as Ed Wuncler III and Samuel Jackson as Gin Rummy. I can't wait to see the uncut version on DVD!

Part 2

One of my favorite Boondocks TV episodes

is "Riley Wuz Here". While the comic strip was more focused on Riley's revolutionary-in-training brother, Huey, the TV show places more emphasis on Riley, because he is by far the funnier of the two characters. This episode shows a more serious side to Riley, and has a touching ending.

Most of this episode was uploaded to YouTube:

Part 2

The art teacher appears to be inspired by Bob Ross, of the Joy Of Painting fame.

As of today, the Boondocks First Season DVDs are the #3 top seller at Amazon. I guess this helps explain why between myself and several coworkers, we have found that five area Target stores were ALL sold out of these DVDs. I plan to get my own copy when I return from vacation.

New Blog links added (Choro Music, Physical Strategies)

Choro is one of my new favorite Brazilian music styles, as mentioned earlier. I'm happy to see a blog devoted to this wonderful art form. Thank you, Durium!

Physical Strategies is a new blog started by martial artist and fitness trainer Tom Furman. Tom has an infectious enthusiasm for the martial arts and has an interesting perspective on training, as a theater worker with a highly irregular schedule.
