YouTubing-To-Obscure-Shameless-Self-Promotion Wednesdays: There Is Entirely Too Little General Zod on YouTube

I desperately wanted to post one of the many terrific clips of Terrance Stamp as General Zod in Superman II -- you know, in honor of that crappy-ass Richard Donner cut that came out yesterday -- but, alas, I came up empty. In its stead, here's one of the better shorts from Robert Smigel's genius TV Funhouse, long the only laugh-out-loud material on SNL. Tackling a favorite target, the breathtakingly cheap Hanna-Barbera company, Smigel goes after their little-known show Shazzan, in which a pair of teens (and a flying camel) frequently call on a genie to help them and enact vengeance that's far from commensurate with the acts that inspired them.

Yon Weekly!! A review (second down) of Nuri Bilge Ceylan's HD-shot Climates, plus an interview with local Repertory dude and filmmaker Michael Dennis. Also, Rep.
