Please invent!

Someone should invent the cartoon network adult swim show "Comic Stripclub."

Arizona Daily Wildcat Storms Mormon

The Arizona Daily Wildcat's Astrid Duffy reviewed my book today. Here's what she had to say:

"Villarreal manages to balance his characters' opinions of Mormons as annoying with a clear understanding of Mormon principles so that the novel remains fun and humorous rather than sinking into a pit of mean-spirited Mormon bashing, as the plan might suggest.

Also fun is the fact that the novel is set on the UA campus so when the characters rendezvous at O'Malley's or that cute bagel shop north of campus, it is extremely easy to picture them, and rather comforting to hear our hometown (at least for a few years) made immortal in ink.

"Stormin' Mormon" is an easy-to-read romantic comedy with an unusually religious twist, and would be a good book to take on spring break in case of homesickness."

The Simpsons

"The Simpsons" is such an awful show now. I watched last night's episode and felt like I was watching "King of the Hill." By the way, it's amazing how someone can go from making a show so perfect - "Beavis and Butthead" - to such wretched, hacky nonsense.

The sorrow and the pity

After watching Arizona get crushed by Arizona State in basketball today, I'm pretty sure that I alone on the court could run a more effective offense than the entire Wildcat team. Other than Jerryd Bayless, no one on the court is worthy of being drafted by the national sweatmopper league, much less the NBA. If this team flops into the NIT, ruining my annual Vegas trip, I will bet $100 against them in their first round game.

That's m'boy

Last night as I watched Arizona get humiliated by UCLA, trailing by 20 in the first half, I slammed my hand on the floor in disgust. My 1-year-old son, Luke, did the same. How does that make you feel, Kevin O'Neill and company? Your team played so poorly you managed to piss off a toddler whose standards are so low he eats Cheerios he finds underneath coach cushions.

All I could say to him was, "Son, if you think this is disappointing, just wait till you see this program in the first round of the NCAAs."
