You can divide the look up any way you want, if you want to sublet 2seconds it's totally up to you. You can scalp too, so sell the half look for $100 bucks and then get 4 more looks that are pure gravy.

you have the cast and equipment, so if you don't plan on doing that, you should now.
Powerloafing is strictly for Powerloafing, and it's taking most of my spare time. Here's two realplayers of stuff I did with no budget last fall:

http://powerloafing.com/MiracleSpray.ram

http://powerloafing.com/drunktech.ram

These were shot in a day and edited in final cut pro with images from Google images. Actually, I lied, I may put these two spots as banner ads on Powerloafing.

Can I answer these too? Shut up I'm doing it anyway.

How did I hear about BUTM? I don't remember. Clicked a banner ad somewhere most likely.

In what year did I first become a Mr. Show fan?

2001 (shut up I'm only 19). I had been peripherally aware of it for a few years and I remember seeing Bob or David or someone plugging it on the Daily Show (back when Kilborn hosted it) in like 1997 or 1998, a long time ago.

He was funny and it looked awesome and I wished that my parents would spring for premium channels but whatever. I didn't actually get to watch it until we got broadband and I could steal hours worth of content with the click of a mouse. I wound up later buying the DVDs so that good people like you could afford to finance your moral decay for another week.

What are the 3 best comedy shows currently on Television?

Arrested Development
The Daily Show
Aqua Teen Hunger Force (it's starting to slip in quality a little bit but I still enjoy it)
Fox News?

What's a show that you're probably not famaliar with that you should give a look?
Even though it's a sketch group and not a television show, I'll give the guys at Secret Pants a mention. One of their members was on here awhile ago self-promoting, and I hated it at first because he was pimping their worst sketch as their best, so I naturally figured all the rest were worse, but then I started clicking around and found some pretty good stuff. Here are my favorites:

"Fun Learning Time":
http://secretpants.net/sketches/mov/puppet.mov
"AA":
http://secretpants.net/sketches/mov/aa.mov (pace drags in a few places, skip forward a little bit)
"Resolutions":
http://secretpants.net/sketches/mov/resolutions.mov

1. Google

2. 2000. I read an article about it in SPIN and coincidentally got HBO at the same time. I was able catch an episode here and there at bizarre times (much like when it was in first runs ).

3. Arrested Development
Scrubs
The Daily Show

4. Honestly? I have none. Most of the comedy shows on TV are either horrible or are really good and have rabid fan bases. There really aren't too many funny hidden shows.

I think you're just being crass. I don't believe that you actually edited that.

Wait, what? Mike who?

Mike, when is the Powerloafing crew going to film its episode of Celebrity Poker Showdown?

I dunno. I think I was looking for Mr.Show Transcripts and got this site confused with unoriginal.com maybe. It has that same orange/red thing.

I had originally wrote a long story here, but let's just leave it at this:

I can remember watching a few episodes first-run during the last two seasons. That made me like the show.

Then it came on HBO Comedy. That made me love it.

Then the DVDs came out. That made me complete (even though I don't have season 4 and my season 2-3 case sleeve thingie has sticky stuff on it).

Wondershowzen, definitely
Arrested Development
Late Night with Conan O'Brien

(I probably forgot some good ones)

I watch a lot of PBS. They have good programming. I especially heart Austin City Limits.

some time in 1998.

I was introduced to the show after hearing someone talk about "Coupon the Movie, The Ride".

The first person I tried to convert to Mr. Show hated it... we were watching it on TV and the "My father touched my butthole" sketch came on. The girl unfortunately HAD been molested by her father so yeah.

Thanks for the words.

And then I drink a bunch and get fat and make bad romantic comedies.
