Dr. Kahns Camper of the Day – Friday

Donkeylips

Eddie “Donkeylips” Gelfen

This is Dr. Kahn, your camp leader, with the Camp Anawanna camper profile of the day. Every group of pre-teen misfits needs a fat kid who goes by a nickname that accentuates his fatness. Our resident chunker is Eddie “Donkeylips” Gelfen. In the grand tradition of Chunk, Fat Kid, Cartman, and Vern, Donkeylips is husky, sweaty, and constantly dreams of fatty foods. He is not above eating rock-hard, painted macaroni during arts and crafts. Despite his girth, he proved his worth during the camp’s game of capture the flag. In addition to being the token fattie, this is a man at the heart of a love triangle. He is torn between serving as Budnick’s sidekick and enforcer and being Sponge’s best friend. With Budnick, he is feared, but with Sponge, he can be himself. Despite this identity struggle, he remains honest, loyal, and smelly. Where would we be without a fat kid?

The Great Salute Your Shorts Debate: Michael vs. Pinksy

michael_vs_pinsky

In Season One, the new camper was the blond, athletic Michael Stein. In Season Two, after Michael left camp due to a case of the chicken pox, viewers were introduced to the floppy-haired, smooth talkin’ Ronnie Pinsky. Budnick ran both of their shorts up the flagpole. However, this is the only similarity between the two characters. SYS fans are divided, placing the debate over Michael and Pinksy alongside arguments about Mike vs. Joel and Claudia Wells vs. Elisabeth Shue.

Dr. Kahns Camper of the Day – Thursday

zz

Z.Z. Ziff

This is Dr. Kahn, your camp leader, with the Camp Anawanna camper profile of the day. Today’s camper can either be found sitting under a tree singing a song about our sweet Mother Earth or standing on first-base thinking about a poem, much to Telly’s chagrin. She is Z. Z. Ziff, our sweet but somewhat absent-minded hippie Earth child. However, don’t get the impression that she is dumb. She once cooked up a scheme to bribe her fellow campers with a trip to a waterslide park so they would help her clean up trash around camp. With her goofy side ponytail and planet Earth earrings, she could certainly be seen as cute, but don’t get any ideas fellows, she is married to the planet!

Dr. Kahns Camper of the Day – Wednesday

camper_sponge_harris

Sponge Harris

This is Dr. Kahn, your camp leader, with the Camp Anawanna camper profile of the day. Today’s camper is the camp genius—Sponge Harris. The rumor is that if you squeeze his head, random bits of information will leak out. Smart beyond his years, he has developed a rather astute assessment of camp, noting, “The food bites, bugs bite, activities bite, everything bites!” Of course, we can’t use this slogan in our marketing and recruiting efforts! Poor Sponge often has the best of intentions, such as starting a camp newspaper and trying to gain weight for the camp’s wrestling team, but is usually taken advantage of by Budnick and/or Pinsky. And who could forget the time the entire camp made him stay awake so he could win a radio trivia contest? Ah, Sponge, we salute you!

Dr. Kahns Camper of the Day – Tuesday

camper_dina_alexander

Dina Alexander

This is Dr. Kahn, your camp leader, with the Camp Anawanna camper profile of the day. Today’s camper is Dina Alexander. Her family has a zillion dollars, so she can afford to work on her tan and read magazines all summer. When she is not out sunbathing, she spends her time gushing about her favorite singer, Jamie Mallet, Jr., and avoiding Donkeylips’ drooling advances. Many around camp would label her as the camp’s “hottie.” Not me, of course, as I am a fully-grown adult with some type of doctoral degree that enables me to run a camp without ever being seen. Anyway, Dina once played the lead in our camp’s production of Cinderella with disastrous results, and it was rumored that she had dinner with Janet Jackson. They had “Norwegian salmon, all the way from Norwege.” She may not be the sharpest arrowhead at the archery range, but she has spunk and certainly has broken a few hearts.

Dr. Kahn’s Camper of the Day – Monday

camper_bobby_budnick

Bobby Budnick

This is Dr. Kahn, your camp leader, with the Camp Anawanna camper profile of the day. Today’s camper is our resident troublemaker—Robert “Bobby” Budnick. He is known for his carefully crafted mullet and his love of camouflage coats and Megadeth. Be weary of his schemes and his crazy stories about Zeke the Plumber. Budnick is an expert at feigning sick and never passes up an opportunity to run a new kid’s shorts up the flagpole, much to the chagrin of his arch nemesis, counselor Kevin Lee. However, he knows his limits. At one time, he thought Dina was the perfect girl, but, in the end, he could not let her take away his most prized possession: his long red hair. He was last seen being pushed aside in a video arcade by the T-1000 in Terminator 2.

Essential Seven Movies Better Than The Books That They Are Based On

7books_prince

On July 15th, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince opens nationwide. When it comes to the Harry Potter film adaptations, most hardcore Potter fans and casual readers alike agree on one simple fact: the books are better. Sure, the movies are fun and extremely well-cast, but many fans prefer to dive into the more detailed and epic books. Though we could probably make a strong case for the adaptation of Prisoner of Azkaban, we’ll agree with this assessment. However, it got us thinking: Are there movies out there that surpass the original source material? The short answer is “yes,” there are, and here are the essential seven:
