Having some friends over this week to watch A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas in 3D. We planned to see it in the theater but were too busy to do so during the holidays. None of us have seen the movie yet (3D or not) and are hoping the 3D version and the movie itself delivers! Have you seen it and if so, what did you think?

Anyone have a chance to see the reincarnated Beavis and Butthead this past year on MTV? Not sure how he pulled it off, but Mike Judge (Office Space, King of the Hill) has managed to update the television duo from 15 years ago into today’s changed version of television media. No longer is Beavis and Butthead’s hilarious approach to criticism limited to just music videos. They now also watch and comment over television shows including reality programming, which in my opinion, produces often hilarious results.

The only time I enjoy watching Jersey Shore, if you can call it that, is when Beavis and Butthead crack jokes over the top of it. I wonder if Josh will lose all respect for me having simply mentioned Jersey Shore. Just like Mike Judge, I’m willing to take some chances.

I highly recommend Beavis & Butt-Head: Volume 4.
