As Marvel keeps adding movies to the MCU it's natural to assume that they'll eventually make a movie that drops the ball. Especially when they advertise their movies for so long and get them surrounded by so much hype. However, Guardians of the Galaxy is not going to be the movie that drops that proverbial ball.

So, normally, I try not to rely on racial humor but this is such a funny combination of a premise and a realization of that premise that I had to share it. First, watch this clip from Aziz Ansari's special Buried Alive, which is available on Netflix: Now, watch this video from the youtube channel "Disturb Reality", where this dude shows some street magic tricks to some black audiences. I think this video took place in Compton. If that's the case, I give this dude a lot of credit for walking around with that much money out in the open.

While this is a stereotype, I don't find the video to be particularly harmful or racist as no one is being belittled in the process. Bottom line, it's pretty funny.
There's a list of shows that I've had recommended to me over the years that, for several reasons, I just don't watch. By the time I found out about Weeds, I was already well into Breaking Bad and the show was already several seasons in. In addition, it was on Showtime and I've just never had that channel. So all of these factors caused me put the show on the back burner and, this past month, I took it off. Weeds centers around Nancy Botwin, a recently widowed suburban mother who starts dealing weed to other suburbanites in order to maintain her family's lifestyle. She is joined by a, frankly, bizarre cast of characters: her crooked accountant Doug (played by Kevin Nealon); her fake best friend Celia (as well as her husband and lesbian daughter); her brother in law Andy; her two sons, Shane and Silas; and a constantly changing cast of gangsters, marijuana growers, law enforcement officials, and other things that you'd expect in that occupation. Nancy seems to constantly find her way into bad situations, sometime because of her and sometimes because of her friends and enemies. However, she tries to make the best of it and get her way out of it, sometimes with more gangster-like behavior and sometimes (more often than you would think would work) by just sleeping with someone, and it makes for a fun, sexy, and weird ride. The first thing I should say about the show is that I will probably have the song
