Funny, because I think David actually spits milk out in that commercial if memory serves me right.

By the way, everyone: Jay Johston, Jerry Minor, and Brian Posehn are all featured in these Powerloafing videos. Just letting yall know.

Yeah, up theirs! I will probably post over there whenever this thread peters out or descends into inane chatter. But, still fuck em! Fuck them hard!

That's too hypothetical to answer, but the idea of it doesn't make me laugh, nor does the idea of the idea of it.

That's right, and also Carlos Alazraqui, Eddie Pepitone, Blaine Capatch, Matt Weinhold, Jakie Kashian and all kinds of other funny folks. And, we have upcoming guests that could induce heart palpitations in some BUTM members, but I can't reveal them just yet. We just shot an episode a month ago with Carlos, who plays Officer Garcia on Reno 911. BTW: Powerloafing has absolutely no corporate affiliation, and it's probably not even legal.

I guarantee the members of the BUTM community that once they experience Powerloafing the sky will become bluer, the birds will sing like they have never sung before, and their lives will enter a new state of true joy and wonderment.

I enjoyed the videos, so there you go. Where are you hoping this Powerloafing idea will lead, if I might ask?

Oh, and when you depart for aspecialthing, please don't tell them what a bunch of retards we are. I would say only 1/3 of the people here fall into that catagory.

Hey Mike, here's two non questions, bullet style.
  • That ketchup skit was the first thing I ever saw on the Chris Rock show. And it fueled the fire for about 3 weeks of terrible inside jokes among me and my friends. Thatís three weeks Iíll never get back.
  • Hereís a sketch idea Iíve been saving for a very long time, and I now present it for you. Pandas. Maybe something about how they donít like to fuck each other, I donít knowÖ that part doesnít matter.

Dear Mr. Mikey "My mom is dead and I'm a suck" Uppity:

Thanks for all the info! Your site is great. Keep the good comedy coming please. Forever.

Also:

Any chance of a BIG Mr. Show-esque reunion ever?

What ever happened with the "talks/rumors' of a sketch-movie?

Thanks for reading.

P.S. Sorry to hear about your mom.

I like this show, and I think it will grow on me even more to the point where I will like it even more.


I got a question for you Mr. Upchurch, I'm considering doing a masters paper on sketch comedy when I'm done my degree. Can I look at your paper to see if it's something that would be worth tackling? or if I should ignore that idea and move on to other dreams that can let me put the real world off for a bit.

Now, here's an opinion you can trust. Pali speaks from the heart. Not trying to tell anybody else what to think, or trying to show you how hip he is by using words like "satire" or "juxtaposition." Pali watched the Powerloafing videos, and they provided enjoyment, there you go.

Agent Punt, who is one tough customer, has seen Powerloafing and says it's "great," and further, wants the show to keep going on forever. If a discerning individual like Agent thinks something is decent, then it's great, and Agent thinks Powerloafing is great, so we're talking about a whole new category of entertainment satisfaction.

Is there a consensus forming here or what? Terris likes the show, and is confident that with each new show the liking will increase until it overtakes his body like a flesh eating fungus.


Let's have a big round of applause for the members of BUTM. First, the folks who have viewed this tread, which just blew past 400 views. And, how about Scotch who actually tracked down the preview site - that dude is on top of shit, and Creamy Center who was way ahead of the curve two days ago when he said powerloafing was a "hell of an idea," and that crazy nut TomWopat what's a thread without his crazy comments, and tjamick a guy who's watched by three government agencies because of his avatar, and that posting maniac CaptPlanet you pikers will never catch him, and how about JuanBallsac I like his next screenplay even more, and I totally forgive him about the mom comment - dinner at the Ivy on Juan everybody he can afford it, and Terris who's always the first to spot a good thread, and Pali who sticks up for BUTM for being 2/3rds not retarded, and Soma that guys got a Panda bit that will make you laugh until your testicles shrink to the size of a Panda's, and ME!!!, not me but the BUTM member who goes by ME!!! who's a spitting image of David Foley - that dude has been a fan of Powerloafing so long he's the first to be tired of it. Altogether: Hooray for the internet!

mike

P.S.: I missed some questions. Grandpa's too drunk now, maybe tomorrow.

Mike when my dad gets really drunk and tries to let us kids know what he really thinks about us, but disguises his feelings as good-natured ribbing, he sounds exactly like your last post.

I guess what I'm saying is that you re-opened wounds that I thought had healed long ago.

He was also kinda being a dick.

Regardless, I still have some questions about this Powerloafing thing. What's your involvement with the project? How did it originate? And, my previous unanswered question, where is the idea headed?

I use four exclamation points to avoid this problem. Wise up Mr.IwroteforMr.show.

P.S. If I suck your cock, can I meet Bob Odenkirk

irony free zone

This is the first thread I've started in any online community, and I'm not hip to the ways yet. So much sarcasm gets tossed around here that my previous post may have been taken as pure snark. My speaking voice sounds more like Clark Kent than Dennis Miller. Maybe I have to start using smilies.

When I consider how harsh some of the other threads in BUTM are this one seems pretty tame, but I'd hate to see this thread dissolve into a flameout, so, I'll try to be less jokey, and I ask the sensitive folks not to be such bleeding weeping sissies. (Kidding, only kidding.)

I also have a couple questions I still haven't answered.

Peace and Love

PS: You're not mad at me are you, Juan? You gotta know I'm kidding. Punt, c'mon you guys me flipped harsh, I flipped back. Ain't that the way it works here? Scotch, terris, soma, somebody jump in and say something positive.

Well Mr. Upchurch. I'd like to ask if you have any questions for us. We'd be happy to answer them.

If not, please stick around. I haven't gotten a chance to view these powerloafing videos yet (dialup) and I would love the chance to ask you a few questions. It's just that I got this whole thing going on right now, with ladies, and I'm going to have to save the questions for a later time.

Mike -

What happened to the episode with Blaine Capatch?* I think it got taken off or something. I was looking for it because I wanted to hear that line again: "Carl, I just saw him in the hallway..." -I also can't watch the Efficiency X-pert because it uses some other type of Realplayer that I don't have? Other than that, everything in the episode-watching department is fine.

And if you're going to begin answering questions, start with Pali's - those are some answers I would like to hear too if possible.

Thanks.


p.s. Oh, and I would jump in in your defense, but I don't know what the conflict is about and it doesn't matter anyway because you wrote for Mr. Show and so you don't have to explain yourself if you don't want to.


*who also wrote for Blue Collar TV I just found out (but I was a huge fan of "Beet the Geeks", so I'll let it slide).
