The End of YesButNoButYes - Goodbye from Jeem
jeem_240.jpg

(Note from Scaramouch: As part of our final celebrations, I reached out to past and present writers and asked them all to contribute a final story. This one's is from the Dude hisself, Jeem. Enjoy)

Goddamn, this is hard. I told myself I wasn't gonna cry. I just really never thought this day would come, man. It's always in the back of your mind, of course -- the possibility of that 3 a.m. call that jolts you wide awake, or if you're already wide awake, then momentarily away from that home shopping show with the two hot chicks who sell dildos, with the unspeakable news. But you never expect it to actually happen.

No, you never expect that your smart, young, vibrant blog is going to pass on before you do. Minor stroke or heart attack, maybe -- there is a lot of bacon up in here, after all -- but shuffling off this mortal coil? At only five years old? Just a baby, ferchrissakes. Fuckin' A, man.

Romeo and Juliet's Sassy Gay Friend

Would these star crossed lovers have met such a tragic fate if they'd had a Sassy Gay Friend™?

Fake Arms vs. Fake Fake Arms

One of these TV commercials is real, and one is fake. Are you a savvy enough consumer to spot which is which?

On the left is the Hug E Gram; on the right, the G. F. Spooner.

Answer after the jump!

Putting the Fear of God in Halloween

I've never been a super die-hard spookhouse fan, but I must admit, I've always wanted to go check out one of these crazy-ass Fundamentalist Christian Hell Houses at Halloween...especially one with actors that say "hoochie mama."

Monty Python Reunion
monty_python_truth.jpg

Starting this Sunday night, IFC will be airing the 6-part documentary Monty Python: Almost the Truth (The Lawyer's Cut). It's an exhaustive start-to-finish history of the groundbreaking comedy troupe, featuring interviews with the original members, archival footage and conversations with people they've worked with and influenced over the years, like Lorne Michaels, Eddie Izzard and Stephen Merchant.

According to Python member Terry Jones,

This is the documentary I always hoped that would be made -- something so complete and so faithful to the truth that I don't need to watch it.

Six hours of in-depth Python interviews and never-before-seen material? I think I just soiled my Spanish Inquisition robes in excitement.

To celebrate the premiere of the documentary, last night the Ziegfeld Theatre in NYC hosted the remaining members of Monty Python (plus a cardboard cutout of the late, great Graham Chapman) for an extensive audience Q&A -- full video after the jump.

Splunge!

Blame It on The Alcohol

Alcohol? K-hole? Avant-garde theatre performance?

R.I.P. Captain Lou Albano

Wrestling legend Captain Lou Albano passed away today at the age of 76. (Non-Wrestlemaniacs might remember him as Cyndi Lauper's dad in her video for "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" -- she also wrote the foreword to his autobiography, released last year.)

I might just have to stick a mournful rubber band or two on my face for the rest of the day...

UPDATE: Since the original video of NRBQ rocking out with their former manager Capt. Lou was taken off YouTube, here's another good sampler: an interview with Greg "The Hammer" Valentine by Mean Gene Okerlund. Nobody could rock a beer gut quite like Captain Lou.

Regardless of whether the JesusFish on your car has feet or not, you cannot deny the sheer awesomeness of this kid. ¡Qué cojones!

Larry David vs. Plastic Package

We've all been there.

Great opening to the last episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm -- I'm really looking forward to the Seinfeld not-a-reunion story arc that starts this weekend.

Oz Yourself

So I guess The Wizard of Oz is coming out on 8-track or something next week, so Netflix whipped up a promo tie-in even more creepy, unsettling and fun than a barrel of flying monkeys -- Oz Yourself.

Unfortunately, my afro didn't translate, but it did keep my shades, which was pretty cool. And by "cool" I mean "nightmarish."

Have fun with it, kids -- I think I'm going to try uploading a Darth Vader pic next....

(Update: movie now after jump...stupid autoplayers.)

Seniors, Flu Shots and...Strippers?

As a Floridian, national news stories from my back yard are usually a source of disappointed sighs or outright face-palms. But this story on CNN today, shot at the gentlemen's club right up the street from where I live, had me wiping away tears of pride.

I'm Still Not Here to Make Friends

Reality TV fans: if you thought this phrase was, like, sooooo last year, you're more wrong than a Tila Tequila-brand chastity belt.
