Out of Midnight Oil, Day 196, Burning Daylight in The Year of Fun.

Out of Midnight Oil, Day 196, Burning Daylight in The Year of Fun.

1. Good News: The Paula Deen Cookware is Deeply Discounted.
Bad News: The Paula Deen Cookware Only Cooks Cajun.
Better News: The James Deen Cookware is Also Deeply Discounted.
Worse News: The James Deen Cookware Only Cooks, Well, Everything, But Needs Oil.

2. Pretend It’s Thursday Day.

3. The Average Person Poops 9000 Pounds of ‘Material’ in Their Lifetime. So, One Big Push and 3,122 Pounds Later, and We Should Be Finished.

Pop Culture Today: Four episodes into Orange is the New Black, Weeds’ creator Jenji Kohan’s new show on Netflix based on the book of the same name. OitNB shares much of Weeds’ tone with much different stakes. As a prison dramedy, OitNB also subverts many prison show cliches seen on cop shows and Oz. (Every Oz plot — Bad guy tries to reform, makes small positive changes, is killed.)
If you liked Weeds, you’ll like this. Lots of interesting characters. The difference between good and bad people often comes down to a single mistake, a theme proved over and over on the show.
