  1. enjoyable as always but… gee whiz guys…

    we have several experts at URTV who can show you how to focus and/or properly render video for streaming on the internet. … for free.

    still, keep up the good work!

  2. The best part is when Steve called the artist’s artwork “weird”, but I think he meant to say “progressively hip”, but don’t take my word for it, just google him.

  3. Not all of us are smooth, hip-shooting stand-up comics, eh LYAO? Still, I think I’m doing OK for a guy who absolutely hates being filmed, and is blindly ad libbing from a handful of scribbled notes.

  4. [b]LYAO:[/b] Thanks. Heckle away, actually. I’m rather surprised that Bugg hasn’t shown up and made a comment about my beard or something.

    You boys need to get some interaction going — a little comic by-play wouldn’t be bad. Anybody got a whoopee cushion? How about some theme music? Or some props — I’m thinking pogo sticks.

    Steve you are a big ol’ bear.

    Steve in a bear suit…this has potential.

  7. Steve in a bear suit with a diving helmet on his head and we can make a REAL movie, like 1953’s “Robot Monster.” Okay, okay, they actually used a gorilla suit but we on a budget here.

    I’ve already cast Jason Bugg as the government scientist who discovers the alien monster and fails to recognize it as such (he thinks it’s one of his cousins), unwittingly releasing it on a cowering humanity. Only by the brave efforts of a knowledgeable newspaper editor, who wears dark rim glasses and the daring movie critic (who steals the movie but returns it by the third reel) is alien conquest averted.

    Coming to a theater near you as soon as we find the bear suit and film it. Retakes? We doan need not stinkin’ retakes.

  8. [b]Thanks for always mentioning my silly little column![/b]

    How could I not? Your silly little column is one of my favorite parts of the paper.

  9. [b]WHAT ABOUT ME?[/b]

    You are far and away my favorite person to take insults from. That should be enough for anyone.

    And you post good threads on the forums, too.
