i can’t get the image of a dancing-digging joseph smith out of my head, so why not post it here…
here’s a clip from “the book of mormon“, a new hit musical by south park makers matt stone and trey parker. in this scene, a young mormon missionary tells the story of prophet joseph smith to ugandan villagers.
i’ve always said that south park songs can easily compete with disney music. this is further proof of my statement.
if you get a chance to see it live on broadway, seize it! i hear it’s incredible on many levels.
this week’s quote is about taking a little time for yourself every now and then:
cartman: butters, you gotta learn to chill. live goes by pretty fast. if you don’t stop and look around once in a while, and do whatever you want all the time, you could miss it. butters: yeah, well, i guess that’s kinda true.
i think the movie reference in southpark’s most recent two-parter is pretty obvious.
however, if you haven’t seen either the cloverfield movie or the respective southpark episodes, here’s the juxtaposition:
some more southpark movie references that i recently came across:
in southpark season 8 ep 7 “goobacks”, the terms used to classify a time portal are in reference to three very popular movies. here’s what the news reporter has to say:
“alan, i’m standing at the time portal, which scientists say follows “terminator rules”. that is, it’s one way only and you can’t go back.
this is in contrast to, say, “back to the future rules”, where back and forth is possible, and of course “time writer rules”, which are just plain silly.”
