Good News Round-Up

Arrested Development has been renewed! In spite of the network’s record of canceling worthy shows and giving its timeslot to Seth MacFarlane’s hack factory, Fox’s new president announced the show has been picked up for a third season. If your still not watching the show, buy the season one DVDs and wait patiently for Fox to rebroadcast episodes at random and inconvenient times during the summer. If you don’t want to subject yourself to promos for shit like Stacked, season two will probably come out on DVD sometime during the MLB playoffs.

While this is good news for the world at large, you are probably asking yourself, “But how does this affect Brian McFadden?” Well my creepy stalker friend, it means that my favorite show still exists and that my lame spec script will still be relevant for at least another year.

In other news, gay marriage in Massachusetts turned one yesterday. The trains still run on time, the water supply hasn’t been tainted, and not a single god-fearing asshole’s head exploded. Two out of three ain’t bad, so it looks like it’s here to stay. The prospects for a proposed ballot initiative against gay marriage in 2008 look dim, as most of the country, including the retarded portion, are warming up to the idea that butting into other people’s lives is so 2004.

On a personal bit of good news, as I was buying a new pair of jeans (Boys 16 Husky), I noticed my local mall has a Popeye’s.
