I didn't really get the video, but I've just had fun reading through the comic. I liked this one.

That's some genius right there.

That's awesome. I especially enjoyed how, every time he goes to open a drawer, he stares at the camera and reaches into the air, completely missing the drawer.

The videos are kind of Tim and Eric-esque (especially the long shots where the character isn't speaking or moving much).

Mitchell has some very interesting things inside his study drawers.

Yep, the dude puts 'em on Channel 101 New York. He also does Mister Glasses, which I like a lot better.

Oooh, the second episode of Mister Glasses was a thing of utmost beauty! I simply must watch them all!

It's like Look Around You on a zero budget.

Frankly I could watch absurdity like this all day. And the song is 100% Gold.

"My love for you is more rigorous than modern architecture." I'm so grateful that I've lived to see that day that the world has come around to making something like Mister Glasses. You wouldn't believe how lonely it's been until now...

Wow, Mitch and Dyna in the blue. Never expected that. Some background and random related links:

Welcome To My Study aired for the first time at a Channel 102 screening - June of 07 - and came in 6th out of 8, thus dooming it to failure. Still, it was much beloved by the core 102 community, and wouldn't get revived until Mister Glasses began it's steady run - much to our delight and the confusion of the audience.

Welcome To My Study was a finalist for the Andy Kaufman Award.

Dyna Moe (who you may know from those Mad Men wallpapers that the kids are going crazy for) directed and edited Welcome To My Study. She's also got a hand in Mr. Glasses, and also brought the world Cakey.

Mitch Magee is both a gentleman and a scholar.

If you like Mr. Glasses and/or Welcome To My Study, you may also want to check out Sexual Intercourse American Style, Mitch's other long-running show, and by far my favorite thing that's ever come out of Channel 101/102.
