We’re putting together a flyer for our friend Carter’s monthly Horror Filmfest, and it turns out the pictures from our photoshoot had a dark side lurking beneath the surface.
Apparently, I thought this was so funny that I transcribed the prayer and saved it to my desktop. I found it while doing some computer housekeeping, and I share it with you as a dear man friend. By the way, that was Ray Wise bouncing across Eric’s bed.
Our power is to look really dramatic in front of a steaming pile of rubble on a stormy day. There’s no particular order to the grouping, except that we’re alphabetical by first name from left to right. Also Ed is holding a sword, which automatically moves you to the front. We really did have a photo shoot not too long ago, but not for the sole purpose of parodying Heroes. Click the image if you want to see the full size version. You can also see the original Heroes wallpaper I based it on after the break, which is a pretty good model for way too dramatic photography and graphic design.
I’ll admit, when I first saw the post about this on Boing! Boing! I was skeptical. I’m so happy to say that my expectations were totally, 100% blown out of the water. Prepare to be amazed.
(deep breath) AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME!!!!!!!!!! If it turns out this well, could they finally just bring back The Muppet Show?
What I love about this is that even though it goes on way past the point when you’ve already understood the joke, and there are no new developments after that, the editor stays just as committed to making this look believably awkward and terrible at 2:52 as they did at 0:15. Also, the sudden drop-offs into silence.
I got a new SMS app today, so I was going through my old messages and found this little gem of a conversation between Patrick and myself. I’m not sure what brought on the Star Trek, but it happened for some reason.
