“McCain Girls” update!

March 31st, 2008 by Bill Corbett · 27 Comments

Oh dear. The leading lady of the McCain Girls video is quite cheesed off.
WARNING: nasty language involved.

There’s still part of me that doesn’t quite believe the whole thing is real.
Then again, I have a tin ear. I thought this was a put-on, too…

… but it’s 100% genuine. *

Spontaneous food court musical.

March 30th, 2008 by Bill Corbett · 16 Comments

I’m not a big fan of making people an “audience” without their consent, but this has a nice, light-hearted spirit to it. Kinda brilliant:

The group doing this is called Improv Everywhere, and you may have already seen this rather amazing stunt they pulled off:

For the record, though — I can’t condone or recommend Improv [...]

Professor Mack A Player…

March 28th, 2008 by Conor Lastowka · 7 Comments

Wanted to say “Have a Great Weekend.”  And if any of you are the oh so clever kids who keep calling his house at 2AM and shouting “Where my money at?” or inquiring as to the location of the “Player’s Ball” before erupting into a fit of giggles, he’d like to remind you that he [...]

Rifftrax had nothing to do with this political ad.

March 28th, 2008 by Bill Corbett · 42 Comments

You’d be excused for thinking otherwise, though.

Please enjoy these highlights:

1) At 01:03 — older woman on left becomes transparent, literally, as her clothes blend in with green-screen background.
2) At 01:27 — first appearance of floating John McCain head.
3) At 01:41 — multiple McCain Dolls begin to pour down from the firmament.
4) At 01:59 — [...]

Churros Zen

March 28th, 2008 by Conor Lastowka · 31 Comments

This churros stand, which was discovered on my first ever trip to Tijuana, truly speaks to the conflicted nature of Mankind. Honestly, at the core of our being, what are we all other than a churros stand apologizing for its lack of churros?

Speaking of puppets…

March 27th, 2008 by Bill Corbett · 29 Comments

… those of the hairy monster variety, and otherwise…
Both puppets and more standard human-types inhabit the witty, wild, and tres-naughty world of AVENUE Q — the Broadway hit now touring the country.
Mike, Kevin and I had a chance to meet some of the Avenue Q cast and crew last summer during Comic-Con in San Diego, [...]

Get your Hairy Monsters Straight!

March 27th, 2008 by Conor Lastowka · 8 Comments

Few things can bring a dignified cocktail party to a screeching halt like getting your Hairy Monsters mixed up. I can’t tell you the number of top shelf martini’s I’ve had spittaked on me by monocled members of the upper class, the number of country clubs I’ve been forcibly removed from, from a simple [...]

All is well.

Thank you for your concern, but I am fine.
And I am greatly indebted to Bacon for showing me the error of my ways, without punishing me unduly. What was meted out was well deserved.

Thank you, Bacon. (And anyone implying this is a sentient, highly advanced creature with octopus-like appendages [...]

See you in hell, Pacific Beach

March 26th, 2008 by Conor Lastowka · 18 Comments

I’ve spent my past few weekends participating in one of mankind’s darkest rituals. An exhausting, taxing marathon of an ordeal which sapped my soul of its strength and rendered my normal personality, (usually described as “bubbly”), into something more resembling John C McGinley in Point Break. At some point in time, I found [...]
