For those who are shit-ignorant of the late-night Adult Swim programming block on the Cartoon Network, this film of the Aqua Teen Hunger Force series may strike you as balls-out strange, since it involves neither teens nor water. Even us fans know you could bottle this animated series about foulmouthed fast-food products from New Jersey and call it instant stupid. No way do the show's writers, directors and voice actors Matt Maiellaro and Dave Willis fill eighty-seven minutes of screen time with nonstop laughs. And to call the animation crude would be high praise. But they succeed enough of the time to make a perversely entertaining movie. ATHF is better in small doses, but it whups the ass of the maddeningly successful TMNT as multiplex mischief. With sassy Master Shake (voiced by Dana Snyder) calling the shots for Frylock (Carey Means), a flying box of sarcastic fries, and Meatwad (Willis), a dumb-ass ball of beef, the world will again be safe for a penis-shaped alien, a man-raping dog and my fave villains from the Mooninite Army, Ignignokt and Err. OK, I've told you Aqua Teen newbies what you're in for. It's your call.

    “Money For Nothing”

    Dire Straits | 1984

    Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
