Back in the closet...

At the risk of overshadowing my (for once) thought-out blog post yesterday, I can't resist posting this. I've had a bad day, and this news really gave me a great pick-me-up. If you're sick of my superficial bullshit, refer to the previous post and read that instead. However, if you're yearning for more superficial bullshit, have I got the post for you!

Today I read on EW.com that R. Kelly is not only planning to continue his oft-mocked hip-hopera "Trapped in the Closet" -- he's already produced a bunch more chapters! According to his interview with the BBC, he's got 38 chapters done so far (the first round clocked in at 12). Ten new chapters will be released on August 21. This is the best news I've heard in a long time. I guess the first release of the new ones will be on the Independent Film Channel's website. Before the release, IFC will run the 12 old chapters on television. So if you haven't caught VH1's many Trapped In the Closet marathons (snarky commentary included), catch it on IFC. Or you can borrow the DVD from me. (Director's commentary is UNREAL. R Kels is serious about this. This is NOT a joke. If you want to know more about Trapped in the Closet, just ask me. Sadly, I'm an expert. There's something about this that I'm strangely drawn to...)

So start getting excited about the new releases coming in August and the marathon on IFC. And in the meantime, here are the original first 5 chapters, in case you haven't experienced the Closet yet. Seriously, watch it. It's hilarious.

Trapped in the Closet is heavy stuff...real life drama there...if I had a dime for every time a midget got wrapped up in a Love Parallelogram with me, my wife, and girlfriend, I'd be Scrooge McDuck.

Sadly, I've got the DVD of 1-12...Don't even know where he's going to take the next however many chapters, but yet...I'll watch...
