Happy Cinco de Cuatro

Yes, I know that's mangled, incorrect Spanish. Cinco de Cuatro is a holiday in Arrested Development, started by Lucille Bluth in a fit of spiteful racism against Cinco de Mayo. Immigrants started to embrace the holiday in order to sell more party stuff, and it lasted for 30 years in their peculiar part of Orange County. You'll have to see season 4 to find out how the "blowback" happens against the holiday. I'm just wearing my new AD shirt today and trying once again to write more on my Far From Over fanfic.

I was sad to hear that Almost Human got cancelled, though it's been on the bubble a long time. The TV upfronts ought to be soon, announcing more cancellations and new shows. I'm pulling for the Mission Control comedy pilot that features actors from Better Off Ted. I need my reunion of Lem and Phil!

All the movies I want to see right now, such as Belle, aren't coming out here until later in May, so I have to be patient. It would help if more movie websites and theatres would list their showings more than a few days in advance. They make it a chore to find out where and when specialty films are coming.
