Apparently the season 1 dvd set of The Kids in the Hall is selling so well that TPTB are already going ahead w/season 2! Go over to the official KITH website & fill out the survey - tell the dvd producers what you'd like to see on the next dvd set! The website will start taking pre-orders on June 6, with the second season dvd's shipping by July 6.
I ordered the original set from this site way back when (last year) & actually had the season 1 dvd's months before they appeared in stores (I have no idea if that's the case this time around). Check out this season 2 episode guide if you need a refresher course on what's coming our way.
In barely-related news, Dave Foley is hosting the next round of Celebrity Poker Showdown on Bravo (hey, it's a job), which I just learned (thanks EW) is executive produced by Sports Night veteran, under-used West Wing castmember & apparent card nut Josh Malina. The new tournament includes Big Ticket favs Maura Tierney, Lauren Graham, Michael Ian Black & others. Check out the July 22 episode, which features four cast members of Arrested Development, and Peter Facinelli of the late, not-so-great Fastlane. Way to fill out the table, Bravo (add sarcasm here).
Here's an interesting piece by journalist Jason Burke about many misconceptions relating to Al Qaeda (via Purple States). It's worth a read.
If you've been reading me even semi-regularly, you'd know that I have much love for Jersey rockers RANA. Well, Ramie over at Rockslide has published some of its library to the iTunes music store, including this show from last year's South By Southwest festival: RANA 3/15/03 @ iTunes
