Adult Swim New Years Bash. It was so great! There was one part when Zorak from C2C and Zorak from the Brak show were both there. Then when they announced that Brak show was cancelled (is it true, or just some hype?) Zorak and dad were looking for other jobs. There was a sendup of George Lowe going on about his book "Boned by the master" or something like that. Moltar convinced Carl to go hit on Debbie, and so he did, and she embarrassed him to the point that he just said "I'm impotent" and walked away. So, Moltar says "How'd it go? Is she pregnant?" and Carl is like "Not by me, that bitch is psycho!" There was a part in the brak show where they were all turned into penguins, and Brak's mom penguin says to another penguin "I'm Brak's real mom," and another penguin sounding quite like Marsha Crenshaw said "Check the internet, honey. I'm the real mom."
On ATHF, all the villains were gathering, and Inignot and Er were taking roll, and they got to the Pluto guys, and they read their names, paused, and said "Not invited! Hahaha! Cuz Plutonians are teh s uck."
It was well funny. I hope Brak Show isn't really cancelled.
Wild Horses Ok, I know I didn't have my glasses on, and I was only half-awake, but I didn't quite notice "Columbia" on the side of the space shuttle in Doohan's hanger like I noticed last time. I wonder if it was edited or something. Well, I hope not. I hope that's just me being half-asleep and not wearing my specs. It's cool that it says Columbia, even though it dates the show.
and other episodes
The villains are really lame looking. I am wondering who was the coolest episode villain (and by villain I probably mean bounty head) in the series. I ain't talkin bout Vicious, I'm talkin bout the episodic folk. But, does that include the movie, which is like a long exceptionally beautiful episode? Well, if it did, Vincent would win. So, in the 26 episodes, in the 22 or so that have a one-shot bounty head, which one is the coolest? The red-eye guy? Hakim? The old lady and her kids who are gonna blow that gateway thing? that "kid" with the harmonica? OK, I'm not going to mention that guy that VT helped them out with. He was way lame. The guy who's sister needed whatever because of the Venus flower pollen stuff, he don't count. Neither does that lame-o that Jet's ex is dating. OK, Gren? Gren counts (Jupiter Jazz). Chessmaster Hex? That ex of Faye's? No way, he was totally lame. That guy that shot Jet, or that Jet thought shot him, or whatever (I can't remember whodunnit)? That guy was kindof a badass. Domino? Those losers I mentioned earlier in this section, with the nav computer virus thingy? The fat crazy guy? The teddy bomber? (OK, no way is the teddy bomber one of the coolest.) How about that guy who made that one cult videogame thing, or Ed's dad? OK, I think I got 'em all.
So, for those of you keeping score at home, here's who don't count:
Guy with dragon tattoo and glasses from "Heavy Metal Queen", because he was a total pansy.
Guy with the blind sister from "Waltz for Venus", because he was a good guy.
Jet's ex's current, because he was a total l0jUr
Chessmaster Hex, because he was just an old guy
Faye's ex, because he was just a con artist
Ed's dad, because he's Ed's dad.
OK, those don't count. Neither do Vicious or Vincent. Hey, wait, is there a V-theme in here? What, no Val? So, here's the list I'm going with, from baddest-ass to lamest.
1. Guy who allegedly shot Jet's arm off back in the day (I really did forget whether it was true that his partner shot him or if it really was the bad guy. DVD purchase tonight, I think.) He was a bad motherfucker.
B. Red-eye. He, too, was a bad motherfucker, but he needed the red-eye so not as badass as #1.
four. the "kid" who was like 100 or something
tie for 5th - Gren and cult videogame guy
VIII. Crazy fat guy - just too creepy to maintain badass status
nine. old socialite and kids
J. teddy bomber
eleven. three guys with harpoon virus
Yep, you saw it here first. Three guys (Ruth et. al., Ruth being my middle name so I notice it) are lamer than the teddy bomber.
As I think of more fun excercises like that, I'll let you know.
