Watch Conspiracy Theory Rock, the skit which has been pulled from SNL re-runs.
  • The 1998 SCHOOLHOUSE ROCK parody, animated by J.J. Sedelmaier Productions, criticizes corporate ownership of the media and takes some sharp jabs at NBC owner General Electric. Needless to say, the cartoon aired only once on NBC.

Softball on the Mall Was Bipartisan Fun Till Politics Intruded
  • This is such a great true story, you'd think it was fabricated. The Democrats wanted the year-end playoffs to be "socialistic" - high teams against high, low against low, to give the bad teams an equal chance. (The two top teams would play one another in the first round!) The Republicans favored the usual high-low seeding.

The Spanish socialist party says apes should be given rights equal to men.

The first eight minutes of The Proposition
  • "Set against the harsh and unforgiving landscape of the 1880s Australian outback, 'The Proposition' is a visually stunning tale of loyalty, revenge and the quest for justice in a lawless land. Charlie Burns (Guy Pearce) is a renegade. Along with his two brothers, Arthur (Danny Huston) and Mikey (Richard Wilson), he is wanted for murder. When Captain Stanley (Ray Winstone) captures Charlie and Mikey, he offers Charlie a proposition in an attempt to end the brutality that surrounds them -- the only way to save Mikey from the noose is for Charlie to track down and kill Arthur, his psychotic older brother. An impossible moral dilemma leads to a murderous climax."
