I'm sorry if I'm being a little repetitive about Futurama lately, but I just saw Proposition Infinity (6ACV04) which talks about egalitarian marriage between humans and robots (obviously parodying gay marriage legalization).

Well, it turns out, in case you didn't know, in Argentina, egalitarian marriage (AKA gay marriage) is legal since July 15th. This Futurama episode was aired on the July 8th, so it was kind of premonitory (leaving out the fact that the law in Argentina was in discussion long before that :).

Anyway, cheers to all homosexual couples that can get married now in Argentina, and to all robosexual couples that will be able to get married sometime after the year 3000 =P.

The attack of the killer app

The attack of the killer app (6ACV03) is one of the best and geekest episodes of Futurama I've ever seen.

Making fun of iPhone and Twitter is really easy, and done everywhere now days, but Futurama does it in another level, in a level only geeks can enjoy that much. One clear example (leaving aside the title of the episode) is this little jewel:

Fry: Since when is the Internet about robbing people of their privacy?

Bender: August 6th, 1991.

Referencing the announcement of the creation of the WorldWideWeb.

Today is a happy day. Even when the new Futurama season started in Comedy Central some weeks ago, I completely forgot about it and I didn't see any new episode until today.

I really missed the sensation of viewing a Futurama episode that I didn't see several times before (there were some movies, but it's not the same).

Oh! What a beautiful series! Really good first episode, very well spent 20 minutes.

Futurama theme origins

Psyché Rock cover

I have recently found out that the Futurama opening theme was inspired in a very old experimental song by the French musicians Pierre Henry and Michel Colombier. The original song is called Psyché Rock, was created in 1967 and interpreted using bells, percussion, zithers and electronic music!

Fatboy Slim did a version of the song too.
