Hello everyone,

I need a nap.

Here’s what’s new on HoboTrashcan.com this week:

Review – South Park: The Complete Twelfth Season
It’s no small feat that after 12 years, South Park remains one of the sharpest and edgiest shows on television today. This week, Joel Murphy takes a look at season 12 of the hit Comedy Central series (which comes out and DVD and Blu-Ray March 10) and reviews the top five episodes.

Lost: Down the Hatch – Let’s get ready to rumble
Juliet and Sawyer played house, Horace had fun with dynamite and Richard Alpert showed up looking as dreamy as ever. Chris Kirkman provides a brief recap and in-depth analysis of the Lost episode “LeFleur″ and shares the recipe for The Homewrecker, which is this week’s episode-inspired drink recipe.

Murphy’s Law – One Shot: Late Night with Jimmy Fallon
Since day one on HoboTrashcan, Joel Murphy has made his hatred of Jimmy Fallon quite clear. With Fallon taking over Late Night from the far superior Conan O’Brien, Murphy decided to tune in to Fallon’s premiere this past Monday to give the comedian one shot to impress him.

Note to Self – A novel approach
While many sportwriters take the easy way out and automatically blast Daniel Snyder whenever he makes a big signing during free agency, this week Brian Murphy offers a better way to cover the Redskins. Instead of bringing up Jeff George, Bruce Smith and/or Deion Sanders to take shots at the team, Murphy suggests doing some homework and actually looking at the moves the team is making now.

Outside of the In-Crowd – Things Assholes Like 2: Things suck at present time
Continuing her popular series, this week Courtney Enlow looks at another thing that asshole like – hating everything. This week’s column focuses on the assholes out there who insist on telling you how great things used to be back in the day and how much better bands and actors were “before they sold out.”

Overrated – Dan Rooney
Pittsburgh Steelers owner Dan Rooney may run a franchise that has won two Super Bowls in the past four years (and one that holds the record for most Super Bowl wins of all time), but that’s not stopping Pittsburgh Steelers fan Ned Bitters from calling Rooney overrated.

From the Vault – One on One with Gbenga Akinnagbe
Change is the only constant on the streets. Just as the good folks of inner-city Baltimore got used to Avon Barksdale calling the shots, he was sent to jail and a soulless monster named Marlo Stanfield was suddenly the most powerful drug dealer on HBO’s hit series, The Wire.

A cold-blooded killer like Stanfield has no shortage of enemies. That’s why a right-hand man like Chris Partlow is vital to protect Marlo against rivals. Partlow is a loyal assassin who does whatever it takes to guard Stanfield without ever asking why. Last year, we had a chance to sit down with Gbenga Akinnagbe, the talented actor who plays Partlow, to talk about life on The Wire, working with Philip Seymour Hoffman and his amateur wrestling background.
