Josh Radnor: This Decade's Zach Braff

Both annoying examples of modern Uhmerican masculinity, as portrayed in the MSM. Braff first gained prominence through the show Scrubs; he then wrote and directed Garden State. Radnor played the main character in the execrable How I Met Your Mother. He wrote and directed Happythankyoumoreplease and Liberal Arts - I borrowed a copy of the latter from the library, but beyond Elizabeth Olsen there isn't much to grab my attention. (Michael Weston's character is even more annoying - a few of the deleted scenes feature his subplot, and his character is an even bigger insult to masculinity than Radnor's.)

Finally, a Liberal Arts Movie?

Water Wars... No mention of peak oil?

I don't think there was an explicit mention of peak oil, though since it is Mad Max, there is talk of oil problems. Should have brought in "peak oil"...
