S.E. Cupp, one of the many things the Beefboy is thankful for in 2009!

I love the concept of Thanksgiving for two major reasons. First off, I love to eat, and Thanksgiving is about stuffing your face. Secondly, Thanksgiving is about getting together with family and friends and considering all the wonderful things that you should be thankful for. We typically spend about 364 days out of the year looking at stuff that irritates us; one good day to appreciate the positive stuff is really too little.

So, below is a short list of things that I’m thankful for over this past year. Why don’t you leave me a comment and add some of your own?

1. Megan Fox modeling (that means NOT acting)
2. The UFC
3. Star Wars: Clone Wars
4. The Beefboy’s large and fantastic group of friends
5. Freedom to choose Health Care WITHOUT government intervention
6. Arianny Celeste
7. Mistress Kitty
8. The Global Warming Scam being exposed – Finally
9. The Game
10. iPhones
11. S.E. Cupp
12. U.S. Navy SEALS sharpshooters
13. Hannah Giles and James O’Keefe, who exposed ACORN
14. Battlestar Gallactica ending on a high note
15. Sweet potato casserole
16. Leaked Celebrity Sex Tapes
17. Rockabilly girls with dark rimmed glasses
18. All of our brave men and women who are serving the country this Thanksgiving
19. Alex Sim-Wise
20. Robots
21. Cable news, talk radio and the blogosphere – because face it, that’s the only thing that’s feeding you the truth!
22. Capitalism
23. My parents being healthy
24. The growing number of Beefanatics out there, who are the best fans in the world!!!

What are you thankful for? Tell the Beefboy below.

Clone Wars Restoring the Force to the Star Wars Universe

Last night’s second episode of Star Wars: Clone Wars made me feel like I was seven years old again. If seeing Obi Wan Kenobi and Mace Windu kicking ass together doesn’t stir something within you then you’re either not a Star Wars fan or you don’t have a pulse. The finale of the episode complete with saving babies while a secret base crumbles into lava is the culmination of everything that George Lucas intended back when he created Star Wars as a modern version of the Flash Gordon serials.

Clone Wars is so good that it threatens to overshadow the source material it was pulled from in the first place. It’s easily better than the recent trilogy of movies. The aging Star Wars universe is experiencing a small bit of revitalization through this animated series. Lucas would be wise to take that momentum and do the same thing that saved Roddenberry’s universe… hand over the keys to the kingdom.

Star Wars: Clone Wars – Season Two Preview

Star Wars: Clone Wars on the Cartoon Network is the best incarnation of Star Wars since The Empire Strikes Back. Period. In fact, it’s the best thing that Lucas has had his name on for the past quarter of a century. Clone Wars is fun and clever, something the last three Star Wars movies seriously lacked. The Jedi battle scenes finally deliver what fans have been wishing for since Luke first turned on his father’s Light Saber.

And frankly, the cartoon version of Anakin Skywalker has more charisma than Hayden Christianson. That’s not necessarily a knock on Christianson. After all, Lucas managed to make Liam Neeson, Ewan McGreggor and Samuel L. Jackson into pieces of wood, and those guys are the best in the business!

The second season of Clone Wars is coming soon, and I can’t wait to see what they have in store for us! Here’s a preview of season two.
