Hi there! There's no place for an "about me" thing in the profile, so I'm posting on my own wall. If you're curious enough to come to this page, maybe you want to know something. So here are a few things, in no particular order:

* I have long names. Call me whatever works. I usually go by "Paul." "Rocky" works here. The full screen name is just there to amuse me.

* "Favorite" episodes are unsorted, and somewhat arbitrary. Depends on my mood when I watched. But I'm generally not one to pick favorites. I enjoy something or not, on its own terms. I don't like pitting them against each other to say which is better or not as good.

* I'm fairly open about stuff, and I like getting to know cool people. Feel free to drop me a line, ask questions, check out my FB profile. Or not. Whatever floats your giant turtle.

That's it for now. Have a MSTie day, and keep circulating the AVI files!

What's that? You're a total stranger with no references, no possessions, no income, and you won't even tell us a single thing about you beyond your first name? No problem! Come live in my house for free, take my son's clothes, borrow the car, and go drive off with my teenage daughter. I'm sure it'll be fine. Oh? You don't know how to drive? No license? Never been in a car before? Well, Betty can teach you the basics. I'm sure you'll figure it out. Say, wait a sec. You're not a Russian spy or anything, are you? Nah, just kidding. Forget I asked. Go on, have fun!

I've never seen a guy so actively disinterested in romancing his girlfriend. What was up with that? I think she'd have been better off with the android duplicate. (Or were those nightclub signs we saw on the way to dinner trying to tell us something?)

"Grog just threw a bone into the air, and it turned into a spaceship!" I'm betting you recognize the reference to the beginning of 2001: A Space Odyssey.

http://youtu.be/qtbOmpTnyOc

The monolith appears, the apes evolve. They learn to use bones as weapons. This is the Dawn of Man. The ape throws the bone into the air, and, as it tumbles in freefall, we cut to a bone-shaped spaceship.

The scene was parodied in a Monty Python cartoon:

http://youtu.be/bLfN9psJo_E

And then, decades later, when a local TV show got picked up by a national network, they designed their spaceship to look like a giant bone in reference to those two clips. (An old sci-fi movie and a riff on it.)

So Crow's riff comes full circle to the Satellite of Love.

If this was being riffed now, there would be so many Bernie Sanders jokes. Whatever you may think of his politics, it's hard these days to hear someone decrying income inequality without him jumping to mind.

Man. Joel, as a prop comic, really hates Gallagher (whose specials, which include prop comedy, frequently aired on Comedy Central at the time). He goes out of his way to say that Gallagher is really not funny in several episodes. I'm almost surprised that Comedy Central allowed it.

This whole movie is a roller coaster for me. Start with Mel ignoring rape to go back to making out with his girlfriend. Then the painfully stupid and awful gang fight. Then fantastic riffing mixed with catcalling. Then Mel, who let the rape happen, obstructed justice, fled from vehicular manslaughter, kidnapped an underage girl, set her up to be sexually assaulted again, and planned to sell her into prostitution in Mexico (all because the only thing he cares about is his car) gets to walk away scott free just for agreeing (under threat of physical violence) to testify the truth (most of which he didn't actually witness). Then some more good riffs and a mostly happy ending. Then the toxic sexism in too many of the comments below... I want to enjoy the nun jokes, but there's so much pain.

I see a fair number of people commenting on this episode saying they're starting to watch the series from the beginning. Don't forget season 0! Yes, it's rough, but there are some real gems. And it's cool to watch things develop. I also like watching the Sandy Frank episodes back to back: season 0 vs season 3. Same movies, mostly the same cast, but different riffs and different feel (entirely ad libbed vs entirely scripted).

It's been a while since I hated a movie kid as much I hate Davy; it's kind of refreshing, really.

So. So, I told Gary that I was going on this vacation. So he goes, "Well, then, I'm goin' huntin' with Jeff next weekend." Well, then, that's when we were at Nigh's. Well, then Lou sang Fernando, and Gary, oh he sings so good. You should meet Jeff sometime. Do you like Barry Manilow songs? I know that farmers need rain, but when it's damp like this, my hair just explodes! Just explodes. Ooo, I'm feeling kinda gassy. McNuggets, they make me so gassy, you know all that grease, you know. It really helps if you drink 8-10 glasses of water a day. But you know sometimes I drink 5, sometimes I drink 9 to make up for the other 3 I didn't drink. Coffee and diet drinks don't count, either. You know, this is pretty country, isn't it? You know it's really kind of a blessing in disguise that I didn't get accepted to college, huh? You know, I'm going to have to revise my twenty year plan, but... Oh, did I tell you about my twenty year plan? Okay, well. Okay, listen here. In year one, this is the year where I'm going to take off those extra seven pounds. You know that's equal to seven pounds of butter? Heh heh heh! So it's like I'm wearin' seven pounds of butter! Ha! Eh, oh... Where was I? Oh, oh yes. So my aunt and uncle here were celebrating their twentieth anniversary. My uncle wanted to sing Sunrise, Sunset. He wanted me to sing that, and I haven't sung that since Cindy's wedding, and, well, she never thanked me for that. Well, I'm still, uh... Well, she's probably really busy and all...
