really far south park

Last night I downloaded a torrent of a new South Park episode from
btefnet.net. I actually don't watch the show regularly, but whenever I do I enjoy it. The episode was great, it involved feeding tubes, the Sony PSP, allusions to Constantine and Ender's Game. I'm sitting here in my apartment in Brazil, laughing my ass off to some up-to-the-minute smart comedy from the States on my Powerbook thinking "how freaking 2005 is this?"

Take some broadband Internet and Bittorrent (maybe throw in some RSS to automate it) and you can really live anywhere in the world and still be feel like you're in the USA.

In two hours I'm heading to the Florianopolis airport to pick up Mie, the only thing I need that I couldn't download :)
