Yesterday I got the joy of speaking on the phone with my friend Tim Walker. Tim lives in LA in a huge warehouse/workspace full of offensive, captivating, and scientific mayhem known as Theory Labs. It is from within Theory Labs that he masterminds the scifi comedy experiment known as the Ministry of Unknown Science. Now, until recently I have only been able to watch the QuickTime trailer for this fantastically funny show, but last week he sent me a DVD (which arrived in my mailbox here at work...wrapped in Spider Man Underoos) of some of the mindblowing material they have been creating in Theory Labs.
Highlights of the MOUS DVD include:
Feeding thirdworld children to hungry fat people.
Gonad fondling/electrocution. (My personal favorite)
Blowing people up.
Cool white lab coats, like the one I wear at work simply because I think it is funny.
Making fun of Amish people.
Scenes of my friends (including Tokyo Rico, the best DJ in the whole universe) being really funny.
I got so excited as I watched this that I accidentally spilled a bunch of iced tea on a secret prototype Mac in my office. I mean, no big deal, really. It is not like they are insanely top secret and handbuilt at a cost of over $15,000 or anything. Well, mistakes were made...luckily it still works. So, the moral of the story is that anyone wishing to laugh to the point of convulsions and then destroy expensive equipment should immediately go download the Ministry of Unknown Science trailer here.
Ben Burling brought me more Juicy Juice today, which was pretty bonerific. This is seriously a hulking and massive amount of juice, not for the weak. Thousands of apple orchards perished to make this beverage. Only the most seriously thirsty need apply.
Looks like I have another winner of the Trade Towers necklaces. Monica from Astoria, NY bribed her way to success by sending stolen office supplies, including tea bags to make iced tea, a used spoon, hot cocoa mix, tiny PostIt Notes, and some pictures from her vacation to New York! What really sealed the deal was that she enclosed a photo taken at the Brooklyn zoo of some little, furry animals having sex.
