Ugly Astronauts

So much real work last week, I got behind on my little videos. Pulled this one together last night right before falling into bed. I like it. Hope you do too.

Do you think Phil Collins is ugly? I honestly haven't given it much thought.

I'm still behind in clip production and have another full day of real work booked tomorrow. This would be a great week to submit that great DI idea that's been bouncing around in your noggin. I might just use it.

Hey, would you like to open up your big presentation with a Deadpan Inc. clip written especially for your audience, but you fear that your writing skills are woefully inadequate for creating an acceptably semi-funny clip? No problem. Hire me. You can do that. Just contact me via strattonbiz at sbcglobal dot net. I can be bought! For a shockingly modest fee! Interested? Let's chat.

I wonder if George Costanza would have been a better match for short fat and bald. I don't even know what Phil Collins looks like. I just know he's a great drummer and singer...

Sorry, no ideas yet. I'll work on some today though.

I thought about George, but decided to go with the more obscure pop reference. I like the idea of people wondering "Why Phil Collins? That's odd."

Much like Brad's random crush on Holly Hunter, which in no way mirrors any such crush I may have.

Still waiting for Holly to read one of these and contact me. A boy can dream.

How about a story about the 90 yr old woman who just graduated high school? http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090607/ap_on_fe_st/us_delayed_graduate Do you think she joined the cheerleading squad? Wrote for the yearbook?
There's also the gardening nudists story, although might be too similar to the nudist hikers. http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090609/ap_on_fe_st/us_odd_nudists_discrimination

But if humanity finally turned into a space-faring civilization, then surely our descendants would think of US as the lanky, hairy & ugly ones!

I'm wondering what idea I could submit that would result in an episode where you'd again press the "hurl" button. Hmmmm. How about a piece about Mel Gibson's recent launch into a crazed rant at his ultra conservative church where they questioned his morals - you know, divorcing his wife while fathering a child with his 39 year old girlfriend. It's said that he furiously paced back and forth on the church's altar.

Or perhaps the story of the New York man who is suing Bumble Bee Tuna, claiming he choked for more than a minute on the 1.5" bone that was in his can of tuna. He claims that the incident ended his lifelong love affair with tuna sandwiches.
