Frasier

I have finished my extended trip. It was a journey into the mouth of madness, and I have emerged a changed man. Changed for the better? When does anybody change for the better? So, you know, I haven’t had a ton of time to really delve into 90s pop culture. Did I listen to a bunch of Pavement on my drive? Of course, but that’s every drive. However, here is something I did do. I watched a lot of Community reruns, but I also watched a couple episodes of Frasier. Where did I watch them?

On the Hallmark Channel of course. What’s the Hallmark Channel? I think they show sappy movies. I don’t know what their schtick is. All I know is that they had a few Frasiers on in the middle of the night. They were from the third season, so I had already seen them. I am almost done with season five. These were my first Frasier repeats. I regret nothing.

I also watched the end of Josie and the Pussycats again.

Death to driving.

The Greatest Frank Of All

(Note: My final pre-written, pre-scheduled post. After this, all future posts should be written in the present, and not the past. Or, at least, closer to the present. And all future crimes shall be stopped by precogs.)

Look, these four days where I have been traveling like a Wilbury has been just stuff I like and have written about before. That’s not going to stop now, because here is my favorite song from Mystery Science Theater 3000. More than “Creepy Girl.” More than “Sodium.” More than even “Idiot Control Now.” Now, let us be frank about Frank: http://youtu.be/y259WQIvBNo

(Note: This is post three of four of my traveling pre-scheduled posts. Enjoy, if it posted properly.)

These pre-made posts, which are like making dinners in advance and then just heating them up when the time comes, has basically become a litany of my hobby horses for this blog. Which, you know, to be fair I don’t really have the usual research time I have generally speaking. And by “research time” I mean “poking around Wikipedia time.” Anyway, here is a concert done by Polaris, the band from Adventures of Pete and Pete, posted on the YouTube channel of Mark Mulcahy, of Polaris and Miracle Legion. Their music is actually quite good: http://youtu.be/dNK_ZQeLmIM

(Note: This is post two of my pre-scheduled posts for whilst I travel. Enjoy it in all its brevity.)

Here’s a little thing about the creation of Futurama. I’m having trouble with the whole embedding thing, and it’s a poor day for that because I am doing all my pre-scheduled posts on this one day. So, just click this link: http://youtu.be/pmkYYJboTPM

And here’s Matt Groening on David Letterman, but back in 1989: http://youtu.be/bSpFPM92goU

On The Road Again

(Note: This is the first of four posts that I have scheduled to auto-publish while I am traveling. So, if you are reading this, all is well. I didn’t want to stop publishing whilst I traveled, to try and keep the whole consecutive posts thing going. Trying to get up to two straight years, and I don’t have any real reason why. I’m Edmund Hillary all up in this piece! Also, these posts are going to be short and to the point.)

I’ve posted many a GIF of Salem, the weird puppet cat from Sabrina, the Teenage Witch. However, in truth, I had never watched him in action. Now, I have. It’s even weirder and more off putting than I had ever imagined. He’s like an animatronic thing. It’s alarming, yet beautiful. And I couldn’t get it to embed.

Existential Parachute Pants: A 90′s Pop Culture Podcast – Episode 84: The Weird Al Show

Posted

90siTunes

Weird Al. He’s a musician. He’s an author. He made a movie once. He put a bunch of musical videos on the internet. However, once upon a time, he had a televisual program for children. It was called The Weird Al Show. It has no connection to Al TV, his other television program. Did two adult men enjoy a show that was, ostensibly for youths? Wouldn’t you like to know!

Richard; links later………..links now.

iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/existential-parachute-pants/id680253940 Rate the show and subscribe and leave a comment or whatever.

The theme song remains “Her Favorite Bra” by Dan Emery Mystery Band. It probably isn’t as good as The Weird Al Show’s theme, but that’s OK. Thanks for listening. We’re handing things over to Corky for a little while.
