Childhood regrets

In a rare analysis (including lots of Aristotle) of the humor of Beavis and Butthead and it’s creator Mike Judge, the Mockingbird Blog writes:

While many of us may have wished we spent our summer days learning Latin or playing the cello, the reality is that MTV and bathroom humor consumed a lot of attention and energy.

While I was strictly forbidden from ever watching Beavis and Butthead and actually DID spend the summer 1996 doing things like working on the Haydn trumpet concerto and getting the DirectX 3.0 .dlls to link and compile in Borland C++ (what a mess), I must admit I also sang along with “Damn Feels Good to Be A Gangster” from one of Judge’s other creations.
