It depends on the type of music, but I love the radio. Some of the more popular stuff I don't like though, but that's just because its sounds awful and took no actual musical talent to make. But I will listen to a little bit of everything from classical to any modern genre.

It's not funny when it's so blatant. The comedy made from satire comes from the subtle attacks that fly under the radar. For example, we all know that having facebook friends is pointless and its easy to get sucked in. There is nothing clever about an episode dedicated to somebody actually getting sucked into it.

I won't bother since Zazaban already threw some out there.

Sometimes the best content comes from when writers are just messing around trying to have fun. Not having the pressure and history to be funny, clever, and groundbreaking. Also, writers opinions of their won work generally differs greatly from the general public's opinion of it.
I'm not saying modern South Park is not funny. I enjoy every season of South Park. But the core essence of what it was is gone. It was about 4 potty mouth kids that had an innocence about them, because they were kids. They did not always fully understand the events or even words around them, and that effected their actions. Now their actions, and knowledge of life is that of adults, which makes no sense considering their supposed to be 9. Even their voices have gone from sounding like kids to sounding like adults.
That's right, a mothafuckin bunny!
I say the whole world must learn of our peaceful ways. By force!
I'm not arguing that modern South Park is good. Seasons 12-14 suck.
I'm arguing that season 1 also sucks. It's a show for children.
Seasons 4-7 and season 11 are wayyyyy better than seasons 1-2.
They were just poor writers back in season 1. I remember a particularly unfunny joke from the early seasons: Kenny mumbles something, say, "Yeah, whatever." Then another character says "you can say that again!" so Kenny mumbles "yeah, whatever" again. This is a predictable derp joke.

This is what is called "nostalgic value" or "sentimental value."
If you take that away and look at the season for what it is, it's just not very good.
yes i undrestand what you are talking about with nostalgic value and even now i know that the episodes are not as good of storylines but if u were to sit your little kid in front of the tv with the first season of southpark on they would find it way more funny than a group of adults would(and vice versa with the new episodes). the episodes were very crudly made and the storylines were not very planned but they are withought a doubt more funny for kids than us adults. honestly people who watches south park for the messages behind the episodes just sit back and let the funny hit you (LIKE A KID WOULD)
