Am beating my brains against the wall writing an SF novel based on the premise of a world devoted to gaming and role-play. The bastards at South Park managed to make most of my satiric points in a 30 minute cartoon show.

Caught "Idiocracy" in LA with Eric, Mike Judge's satire of a world of idiots. Evidently, this pissed off the executives at Fox and they've released it to only a few cities with next to zero publicity. I imagine they don't like the insult to their target audience. Their target audience being idiots, they shouldn't have worried. But, at any rate, I saw it at a movie theater as movies are meant to be seen.
Great movie. Yeah, a dead rip-off of the premise of C.M. Kornbluth's "The Marching Morons." But a great movie nonetheless. I won't bother with a plot summary. The above vid clip says it all.
Peace, ya morons.
