I agree. I've enjoyed your breath since 98th Street.

Mickey Jones, ubiquitous yet frequently forgotten or ignored character actor (warning: WMV trailer) and drummer is the Zelig of both the '60s folk and rock scene (very recently seen in No Direction Home) and television and film, linking Don't Look Back (1996) to Don't Look Back (1967).

wow i had no idea that guy was anything besides someone's gun-toting tough-guy sidekick. and i'm a big dylan fan, so shame on me.

haven't watched the documentary yet, but taped both episodes for viewing this weekend

The first sighting of Mickey Jones in the doc last night instantly prompted me to go WAIT, is that, that guy from slingblade?! And I immediately spent some time researching the guy at imdb. Good post.

Really interesting post, Hat Maui. I've seen this guy dozens of times in dozens of shows and movies, and never given him a second thought.

He looks like a Mickey Jones.

There was an episode of Home Improvement where he plays drums as part of the "boys from K&B Construction" and it looked to me like he really knew what he was doing. I just assumed he was a hobby drummer, little did I know.

It must be so difficult being the love child of Mickey Dolenz and Davy Jones.

Has he reinvented himself yet again?

I also did a double-take when they showed him on the Dylan documentary last night.

The same guy who, thanks to countless movies & TV shows, became my benchmark for a longhair redneck was Bob Dylan's drummer during the infamous 1966 acoustic/electric "boo" tour!? Wow.

I did not know that.

...so difficult being the love child of Mickey Dolenz and Davy Jones.

That was my first thought too, briank; Mickey has two daddies. (Growing up with famous parents must be quite stressful.)

Step five: wait until a complete asshole needlessly insults you six hours later with same "lame joke."

huh?

how am i making the same joke? what i did is known as "mocking" which is a derisive stance toward a particular joke or expression, not an embrace of it.

look, dude, calling me an asshole might make you feel better, but it won't change the fact that that whole "profit" bit is the most tired thing on all the internets. and yours was especially unfunny. sorry, but it's the truth.

hey, i hear fark has open signups!

Look "dude" you don't think it's funny, fine. You could have ignored it completely. No you appointed yourself humor cop. You insulted me for NO reason.

I see the "profit" thing on about thirty recent threads here on Metafilter so you better get to work there, Marshall Dillion. Oh. but you singled ME out.

Therefore you ARE the very definition of a humorless asshole. And a non-asshole would apologize at this point realizing his mistake.

"profit" bit is the most tired thing on all the internets

No. Calling the internet "the internets" is the most tired bit. But repetition and timing are key to humor, right?

hey, i hear fark has open signups!

So what's keeping you, Sheriff.

man, you're sure angry that i didn't like your dumb joke, mr. christ.

I see the "profit" thing on about thirty recent threads here on Metafilter

so? what are you, a robot? MUST.EMULATE.SOUTHPARK.JOKE.

You insulted me for NO reason.

you're awfully thin-skinned. i insulted your joke, sure, because it was fucking lame. apparently, suggesting that your wit is really just "wit" is on a par with calling me an asshole, twice. i'm curious to see what your response will be when i really insult you, as i'm about to do now:

you're a jerk, tkchrist. a complete kneebiter.

as for apologies, here's one for you:

i'm really fucking sorry you made a dumb joke, you unfunny douchebag.

but you singled ME out

er, yeah, sorry for that. but since i started the thread, i couldn't let that dumbass joke slide. i mean, if it had something redeeming or funny in it, i would have left it alone. but what's funny about plugging "grow a big hill billy beard" into that south park setup? i ask you, how was your joke funny?

Step One: Appoint self humor cop

Dear Hat,

Thought I'd end this with a post as witty and insightful as yours.









Love,
