Grizzly Man is Coming!!

In case you haven't seen it...Grizzly Man is premiering on Television tomorrow on the Discovery Channel. It is quite possibly the funniest thing you will ever seen and made even more hilarious by the fact that there are people out there who actually take it seriously and think it is sooo insightful and touching. It is about a crazy man who went to go live with bears every summer for years until he finally got eaten by one. He always took his camera with him and he seriously thought these bears were his friends and that he was protecting them. But yet, when he would get close to the bears, there was no sign of friendship in their eyes and they never "accepted him as one of their own" like the monkeys did with Jane Goodall. He was just nuts. So you have to watch it and think about the fact that there is a whole group of people who think this guy was a misunderstood genius and actually gave this documentary an award. It is seriously reminiscent of a "Best in Show" or "Waiting for Guffman" mockumentary, but it is real.

I just want to say,

It was a CRIME that this incredible documentary was not nominated for an oscar! A CRIME!
If you have not seen this movie, SEE IT! LIKE TODAY! LIKE RIGHT NOW! They talked about it on 1310 The Ticket. I mean that is how awesome this movie is. You can not over hype how un real this movie is. It is just the craziest couple of hours you will ever spend watching your tv. SEE THIS FILM!! CRIME! SHAME ON THE OSCARS! THEY MISSED THE BOAT ON THIS ONE!
