Marc Evan Jackson & JK Simmons - I'm Gonna Kill You Someday
10 plays

My favorite song from “The Piano Has Been Thinking”, for your enjoyment.

Let me give you an illustration of why Ben Acker is a great collaborator: at one point, we were stuck on how to end the bridge. I asked “Is it too stupid to say ‘if killing you is right, then how can killing you be wrong?’” Ben said “Not only is it stupid, it’s sooo stupid that I’m putting it in right now.” This is why you want to write songs with Ben Acker.

Well, well, well. This actually makes a lot of sense and I’m surprised I haven’t already written fanfiction about this a hundred times already.

Picard: We need to find things out about this planet. Send down our chief engineer, chief medical officer, head of security, and second and third in command.
Picard: And, I dunno, throw together a research team or something. Maybe folks with backgrounds in environmental sciences. I dunno how much use they're gonna be, especially since we're already sending an engineer, a doctor, and a combat specialist, so really all our bases are covered.
Picard: I'd love to come with you, but my background's in archeology, I can't see that being useful for learning about places.
Monty Python Live (Mostly!)

It was good. Mostly.

There are a few transphobic jokes which haven’t aged well. I cringed at “you’re not even a proper woman.”

A lot of the songs got upgraded, which was simultaneously nice and kind of annoying. Eric Idle is very good at show-stopping numbers but the problem with them is inherent—they stop the show. There’s a damn good reason even Hollywood Bowl used them sparsely. We’re here for sketch comedy. And that aside, some of the musical numbers are already as good as they’re gonna get—Meaning of Life had more money to toss at “Every Sperm is Sacred” and “Christmas in Heaven” than this did, and it shows. (Only a couple of surprise cameos saves “The Universe Song” from being just as dire.)

All that said, “Isn’t It Awfully Nice To Have A Penis?” got a second verse about vaginas, and I swear you could hear a fucking pin drop in the theater during it. Totally worth it.

There was also a lot of Flying Circus footage getting reused, mostly the Gilliam animations but occasionally some of the film segments. I get that they needed to cover for set changes, but at the same time between that and the musical numbers (most of which relied on a chorus and involved one or two Pythons at most) I couldn’t help but feel it was less a reunion and more a clip show. This feeling, granted, goes away in the second act, as the lines between sketches start blurring and it becomes abundantly clear that they’re trying not just to recreate the sketches but the actual atmosphere of Flying Circus. How well this works is…debatable, frankly.

That said, the bits we got that actually involved the Pythons doing sketch comedy were well worth the price of admission. There were a couple of instances of corpsing, a few blotched lines, but honestly I didn’t mind, as it made it abundantly clear everyone up there was having fun. It was, admittedly, largely just the greatest hits with a few self-deprecating gags tossed in (good ones, mind, but still.) But who cares? The greatest hits are hits for a reason. And there are some new bits, and funny ones, too, but I’m not gonna spoil them.

So, yeah—if you like Python, and want to see them back together but also really really like the idea of a version of, I dunno, “Sit on My Face” with about fifty more choir singers than it really needs, this is the show for you.

(Also, if anyone thinks the “gone to see Dr. Chapman” line in “Dead Parrot” is the only homage Graham gets, well, you’re in for some fun surprises.)

Most very kindly, uh…find the looky-switch which is nice and is sitting there with green label which leaves you singing.
They’re phony! Oh, that’s what it means to be Isaac Asimov, I guess.

How come Crow never used his scanning abilities since this, as far as I know? Anyway, I love that Mike is the voice of the doomsday machine, and their Asimov sideburns and glasses are totally adorable.

Behold! Five seconds of the second season of Gravity Falls!

FINALLY!

"New Gravity Falls?!”

Man, the narrator sounds just as confused as we are. “Wait…new episodes? Like, actual new episodes of Gravity Falls? Really? You’re not just fucking with me, right?”

bluestbluebox asked:

Hello, I was wondering, did you read the entirety of It's Walky or just the part of it that has been officially reposted? And if the former, mind if I ask where you found it?

I read the entirety of it back in 2010 and a number of times since. You can find the whole thing here.

Unfortunately I don’t have white makeup, so I couldn’t be completely authentic.

Frankly, though, that’s a pretty good Sinister Seymour cosplay, you just need a suit jacket.
