Step one: record an embarrassing video of yourself (RealPlayer link). Step two: Let the video fall into the hands of the internet masses, and become the hero you've dreamed of (also RealPlayer).

it seems step three is sue, despite efforts being made to give you free cash and ipods from other nerds who feel your pain...

Step Four: post it on the internet 2 months later.

I like the split second of a basketball game tacked at the end of the homage. That's an eye for detail, my friends.

And speaking of, surely you screwed up the links in your post, ewagoner? Or am I missing the connection between the Star Wars kid and Tenacious D?

No connection, turaho. Well, there is one, I suppose. Andy Merrill is the fellow in the costume and also the voice of Brak, and the Space Ghost clip is from an episode titled "Sweet for Brak". Really, I just wanted to parrot the original Star Wars kid post, and (without a "remix") needed a Space Ghost clip to complete the post.

I love the Williams Street gang! If anybody else had done this, I would have shook my head in dismay, but seeing the ol' Ghost prancing around breathlessly again brings chills down my spine. Now if only they had that wacky Cartoon Planet opening music! [mp3]

a shame it's not in some open format.

I don't get it - what does soyjoy have to do with it?

ewagoner, there is such a thing as reaching too far for a joke. Just the Andy Merrill clip would have sufficed, although the post still would probably have come in for some criticism for not being discussion-worthy.

It actually may be discussion-worthy. I was having a conversation with friends about how Sealab/Birdman/Aqua Teen are the most wonderfully bizarre shows on TV right now. We all agreed that the popularity of these shows is related to how tiresome sitcoms & reality TV shows are in America. And the more they rehash the same tired malarkey, the further they push us away (and toward shows like these).

Anybody know what the state of television was like in the UK, when Monty Python was at it's peak?

even further related, the first wave of adult swim dvds are due out in july, starting with space ghost: coast to coast before including the most recent entries into the william street programming block, like sealab 2021 and aqua teen hunger force.

I just saw aqua teen for the first time last night (I'd caught Harvey Birdman and Seallab once or twice before). My ReplayTV has been informed of it's new duties.

There can be...only NONE!!
posted by LairBob at 3:35 PM on June 10, 2003

dammit - the dvds are due out july november 18.
one day, i will be able to concentrate on relaying the facts.

But what does soyjoy have to do with this?

(I suspect chrisroberts was reacting to soyjoy's four comments in thread 26308, and typed in the wrong window).

perhaps i am not the only one who is mystified by chrisroberts?

Brak is my personal saviour.

adult swim makes me happy and heals my soul. i only wish that it would start earlier @ 10 so i didn't have to fall asleep in the middle of it.
