    Sorry. I know how it feels to lose photos, because I lost them all last year.

    I finally watched the season finale of Seth MacFarlane's The Orville today. Wow, what a show! It is noticeably very different from anything else Seth has produced in the past. In addition to the silly jokes it also has action, drama, sad parts, scary parts, romance, etc. Where most of his other shows are VERY joke heavy, this one is unique in that juvenile humor isn't the focus of the show and such jokes are surprisingly (by MacFarlane standards) used sparingly. This episode was where one of the main characters Kelly found a planet where they worshipped her like a God. I'd never heard a show use such a creative concept before. It has a very clever way of using original plot ideas that I'd never seen anywhere else. I'm not going to spoil anything about the episode because it is truly something that needs to be seen all the way through. It was actually an emotional rollercoaster ride and while I'm not going to say what it was about, the ending almost had me tear up a bit. That's a first for anything Seth MacFarlane.

    I think I finally figured out what bothered me so much about the cat sketch. I was worried about what people would think of me when I tell them that I like stuff like that. At the time I first saw it, I had just recently started using Robot Chicken more frequently in my YouTube videos. To the point where it seemed like I was basically promoting it. I was afraid that someone would check it out just to see what I was referencing all the time and think I'm crazy if they happened to start off with an episode like that one. I then decided that considering I have a Happy Tree Friends avatar and have been constantly referencing Family Guy in my videos pretty much since day one that most of my subs probably enjoy that kind of stuff as well so there isn't much to worry about.

    Went to see one of the elders of our church in the hospital.
    He's going through dialysis, which, trust me folks, is not fun.
    Basically, when your kidneys shut down, they need to stick a tube in you to help remove the toxins from your blood.
    You can't pee, so this procedure takes place.

    It means lying absolutely still for the better part of an hour.
    But I was happy to stay with him through his ordeal.

    After all the times I was lying in a hospital bed with tubes and wires coming out of me, it always felt good to have visitors.
    today I got to return the favor.

    Oh my gosh you will not believe what Robot Chicken had a parody of last night. It was.................wait for it, FUNNYBONES!

    Yeah, I'm still pleasantly surprised that they referenced such an obscure thing. In addition to that last night's episode had clips about Darth Vader making puns, one of the kids from Saved By the Bell joining The Avengers, The Joker doing a make up tutorial, and Wile E. Coyote at an art museum. Trust me, all of those were freaking amazing. Plus, alongside all of the awesome skits I just mentioned they had a parody of Fight Club featuring this hilarious conversation:
    Tyler Durden:The first rule of Fight Club is, you never talk about fight club! The second rule of Fight Club is, you NEVER talk about Fight Club! Got it!?
    Club Member #1:Ummm, you do realize that you just repeated the same rule twice right!?
    Tyler Durden:Yes, I did that so I could make it absolutely clear that you are NOT allowed to talk about Fight Club.
    Club Member #2:Excuse me. What if when we have like tea parties and things like that, are we allowed to talk about it then?
    Tyler Durden:Yes, as long as we are in Fight Club you can talk about Fight Club.
    Club Member#2 *grabs his phone and calls his wife*:Yes, hello I'd like to tell you about this-
    Tyler Durden:YOU IDIOT!? WE MAY BE IN FIGHT CLUB, BUT THE PERSON YOU JUST CALLED IS OUTSIDE OF FIGHT CLU-Never mind, screw this. I'm not real anyway!
    So yeah, it was a great episode that made me night. On the other hand, they did have a skit about Jesus that I could've done without but they kept it so short (being only 5 seconds at the very least) that it didn't ruin the rest of the episode for me. But overall I definitely consider the most recent episode to be among my favorites in the show's long run so far.

    My friend Jordan (formerly my cousin Lauren's husband before they divorced a couple months ago; not really surprises to be honest) posted this as his Facebook status.

    "Facebook.... More like complain about people with different opinions and political views than me book"

    Could NOT have said it ANY better. This is why I rarely log on there anymore.

    Facebook and Twitter is just nothing but political anyway.

    I have not heard this in FOREVER. I'm so happy to have found it on YouTube.

    Though I won't lie when I say Sid's extended scream sound effect in this version scared me a little as a kid.
