Before we begin with the episode, let’s just take a moment to appreciate what this episode’s title has for us.

Allusion to this episode featuring our characters and the high-IQ society, Mensa? Check.
We begin in Feeny’s classroom. Feeny’s about to pass back book reports. Cory has a red clown nose on and is silently creating antics. Feeny catches him. Read more
1. Duck Soup- Often referred to as the Marx Brothers best film, Duck Soup is also one of the best military satires ever made. Personally, I love the Marx Brothers. I find their humor brilliant. I think this is a film that everyone should give a chance and you might just find that the wit of old Hollywood is just as good if not better as the wit of Hollywood today. Oh and it just so happens to be number 5 in AFI’s Top 100 Laughs of All-Time if you don’t want to take my word for it. Also, the entire film can be viewed on YouTube below if you don’t have Netflix!

Welcome back! Last week I gave you your first five suggestions of things instantly streaming on Netflix. Let me reiterate since there was some confusion, these are not a part of any ranking or in any particular order. I have made a big list and these are just selections from my list. I hope you enjoy these and find something you haven’t seen! If you watch something from one of these lists let me know what you think! Read more
I’ve got Tony’s future planned out post-NBA career. Motivational speaker/children’s book writer. He can thank me later, and I will take a smaller percentage than his current agent. What a deal.
I figured if Lebron James can have cartoon children’s series starring Lebron, Lebron, annnndddd Lebron, Tony’s knowledge and sageness could generate beaucoup de moolah (French minor in me coming out). His Twitter feed is peppered with inspirational tweets and motivating messages. I think he loves brightening his followers’ day. As you can tell, I’m positively affected by Tony’s tweets.
I also considered Life Coach as an occupation for Tony once he’s won a few championships with the Grizz, but we all know there is no such thing as a Life Coach. That’s a title created by college students who choose to pursue “independent studies” as their major. I laughed out loud at a girl one time in a study group when she said her goal was to become a Life Coach. I cynically asked if her compensation was in chewing gum and butt taps? She wasn’t too happy. Sadly, I know some day my psyche will hinge on the encouraging words of a Life Coach on day when I’m a professional golfer. Still don’t know why I keep capitalizing both words, guess it’s my futile attempt to substantiate that profession. Read more

Season 1, Episode 4 – Cory’s Alternative Friends
Episode Summary: Shawn and Cory get split up from doing a project together, making Shawn work with Minkus and Cory with Topanga. Cory overhears girls making fun of his hair and decides to change it.
This week, we find our favorite boy meeting the world, his best friend, and crew in Feeny’s classroom presenting group projects. After the future star of The Practice presents a riveting biodegradable products presentation, Cory and Shawn present a passionate if misguided project on air pollution in Denver compared to Philly and how that makes the expansion team Colorado Rockies average four more runs a game than the pathetic Phillies. (Ah… those were the days!) Read more
Today we celebrate. Break out your Cristal, Don Perionne, and Franzia because our boy Tony Allen has been verified!!!! Far too long has this Twitter account laid in the shadows of Unverificationland. But alas, the light has revealed the truth. To date, this easily makes Tony’s top ten life accomplishments. I may be slightly hyperbolic in my assumption about this achievement, but aren’t all bloggers masters of the hyperbole?
Who knew a blue circle with a check mark could generate such authority. In life we seek verification as often as possible. We say and do things to help distinguish our legitimacy and knowledge compared to others. Even Twitter allows validation amongst your peers. Read more
I’m not the only one who sees the value of Tony Allen. My dear friend Bill Simmons, whom I’ve shared many a podcast with, recently wrote his annual trade deadline top 50 most valuable players article. Well guess who’s contract was deemed most desirable for teams to acquire. Tick tick tick.
What is Tony Allen for $300?
You would be correct! So if Bill Simmons believes in Tony Allen, why don’t you? I’m not trying to twist your arm to follow my Grizzled baller. I am, however, indian burning your arm to follow him.
Last week we broke down the numbers with Tony and saw the deeper side to ole “Trick or Treat” Tony (Boston C’s reference). Having spent such an inordinate amount of time with Tony’s tweets, I have noticed a few tendencies or “tells” in @aa000g9′s Twitter game. He likes to tweet about God and music. A lot.
Tony loves giving thanks to the man upstairs. I’m just not sure sometimes if the message is being delivered clearly because of some spelling issues. You see, Tony loves shoutin’ out (S/0) to “Farther God“. Read more
