I think I’d rather have a Royale with Cheese than a Hachis Parmentier, but this is a really nicely done adaptation of “Pulp Fiction” in quasi-Shakespearean language and setting. I like to think I could have written it better (but I could easily be wrong), and I’m pretty sure it could have been acted better, but it’s still great.

I’ve been neglecting this blog lately, busy with job and leaves and holidays and such, but I pretty much always have to blog about Improv Everywhere ‘s spontaneous musicals, like their latest, the Mall Santa Musical. I don’t know if it’s their best work (OK, I’m pretty sure it’s not), but it’s still nifty.

Curds In Space

So, the first private payload has been delivered into space, and it was a wheel of cheese, apparently in honor of Monty Python, whose “Cheese Shop” sketch is one of the all-time classics.

I’m a huge Python fan, so I like this (and I really like the payload label’s tribute to “Top Secret,” a criminally underrated and underappreciated ZAZ movie), but I have 2 big questions:

I’m a total sucker for mashups that reveal the chord progressions behind familiar songs, as I’ve mentioned a few times before. This one, by the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain, is particularly nifty because they actually do all the songs at the same time, from Eagles to Flack to Gaynor to Handel (see what I did there?) and a few others besides. (If you have the same buffering problems as I did, just let it play through and then start it from the beginning again).

Thomas F. Wilson, who played the bully Biff in the “Back to the Future” movies, sings about what it’s like when people recognize him and ask him questions — apparently the same handful of questions over and over and over and over again, like “What’s Michael J. Fox like?” and “How much do you make?” (for the record, his answers are “Nice” and “More than you do”).

It turns out Linksys gave the wrong phone number on the documentation for one of their routers, so people looking for help with getting hooked up can end up getting help with getting, um, hooked up.

I guess if they wanted to get online for porn, this is a feature rather than a bug.
