Con Air Viewing Party

As some of you (hopefully all of you) know, Elephant Larry's spring show will be entirely about the 1997 Jerry Bruckheimer blockbuster "Con Air" which occupies a very special place in Elephant Larry's heart. Meaning that we've all seen it about 15 times or so. But you probably haven't!

So to rectify this problem, we're throwing a Con Air Viewing Party, this Saturday at my (Stefan's) house. There will two limited edition Con Air posters for the first fifty guests, plus we will be serving prison wine. Yum!

Here are the details:

Con Air Viewing Party @ 8PM
Stefan's Place
321 7th St. (between 4th & 5th avenues - it's the apartment under the stairs)
Closest trains: F to 4th Avenue, or the M/R to 9th St.
Any questions, call me at 917.579.8437!

And remember, they were dangerous on the ground. Now they have wings.

Swing and a miss

Don impersonators make me sad.

The announcer for this movie trailer does not have an easy job. The dialogue he was given to read is awful and it seems to spoil the entire plot of the film. But he gets through it as best he can...

...until the end. It sucks for him that his last sentence ends on the words "sleep dealer" and then he has to say "sleep dealer" one more time right after that. But boy oh boy, that last "sleep dealer" is not good. He almost sounds like he's announcing the name of a romantic comedy or dog movie.

This is the saddle Alex was previously talking about.

Go, Zalben, Go!


Related Item #1: According to Alex, all Zalbens are closely related. Ask him about it if you want. I can't do everything for you.

Related Item #2: We filmed one of our first videos ever at PB&Co, and it feels really really surreal to watch it again 5 years later.

Ron Silver, Rest in Peace

Very sad news, Ron Silver passed away this morning. And though some of you may only know him from The West Wing, but I know him from two of my favorite things ever:

Live! Spanish! Simpsons!

This is so much more awesome than either Geoff or I initially thought it would be:

Jon Stewart: One of Our Best Guys

It's been linked elsewhere, but Jon Stewart giving Jim Cramer his marching orders is worth watching all the way through.

"Back In The Saddle Again..."

...Alex exclaimed, pulling the white jockstrap up and over his black nylon tights.

That may sound like the beginning of a "compelling" short story, but it actually happened last night when we got to perform a very old, very out-dated sketch. Here's a live version, if'n you're interested.

Thanks to Aaron and James for giving us an excuse to once again embarrass ourselves in such a strange and interesting way.
