2 + 2 = 5

1) The gooback episode of South Park.
For not only distilling the entire illegal immigrant controversy into a hysterical 23 minutes farce, but for introducing the phrase "THEY took ourrrrrrrr jobs" into the lexicon.

2) Emma Nelson (as played by Miriam McDonald), character from Degrassi: The Next Generation.

Oh the joys of The N's* Degrassi: The Next Generation. It's a high school drama that's painfully earnest, politically correct and Canadian. The heart and soul of the show is Emma, a nerd-cutie who is all legs and really into the enviorment, school work and black guys. She's having a rough time what with her step-dad on chemo and an ex-boyfriend who is prone to making out with sluts in the hallways and stealing computers from classrooms. Despite all this, Emma keeps on truckin' and makes straight As. And I love her.

* For those unaware, The N is a channel aka Noggin. See Nickelodeon has this spin-off channel called Noggin. In the morning and afternoon they play shit for babies... Like Teletubbies. In the evening they switch it over to tween heaven and that's when it gets interesting (and that's when they start calling it The N).

3) "Venus Stop the Train." Demo/outtake from Wilco's Yankee Hotel Foxtrot.
A pop song that, in four minutes, conveys the following: it's winter break and you're home from college. It's raining outsude, melting the snow and turning the ground into sludge. You're at some party, you've smoked a little pot and there's this girl that's kind of obsessed with you and you'd like to make out with her, but you know it'd be a bad move. You leave the party, go home and lay awake in your bed until 4 in the morning, wondering if you did the right thing.

4) AIR playing with the Hollywood Bowl Symphony Orchestra / Sept. 26, 2004.
That's right, the concert hasn't even happened yet and I don't give an F. This was such amazing news and I have been waiting to see those frogs for so long that I am putting it on my list. So there.
