Bananas, not GMOs,  for bluths

Do you care about where your food comes from? If you do, the State House is the place to be today, as the international March Against Monsanto comes to Concord at 2 p.m.

With House Bill 660, the food-labeling bill to alert consumers about genetically-modified produce, doing no more than languishing in committee, Concordians are taking to the streets to voice their distaste for GMO behemoth Monsanto (the company fighting and winning a legal battle to stop average Joes from owning the rights to their own seeds). We can only speculate as to whether there will be a counter-protest of folks slinging freakishly large, genetically-modified tomatoes at the masses. For more information, look up “March Against Monsanto New Hampshire” on Facebook.

Switching gears from tomatoes to bananas, you’ll want to put on your best Shemale sweatsuit, munch on a frozen banana, fire up Netflix and stay up all night watching the revival of Arrested Development. The greatest sitcom of all time was cut down in its prime by low ratings; Netflix has stepped in to rectify that huge mistake.

The whole Bluth gang is back in town, and although creator Mitch Hurwitz warned viewers not to watch the whole season in one binge TV session, we know there are plenty of devoted followers like us who have been waiting seven years to get back into that model home. Think about it: If you don’t watch every episode the instant they are available, you better kiss Twitter and Facebook goodbye until you do, lest you get spoiled faster than a piping pot of hot ham water.

If you have an Arrested Development theme party to marathon the episodes, send us your pictures at news@the
concordinsider.com. Otherwise, you blue it! The new season debuts at midnight on Netflix.
