Hello Sailor
  • Have now seen the Star Trek reboot three times; still impressed. Yes, the Planet of Icy Coincidence is a bit much; on the other hand, Simon Pegg!!!

  • Alas, Dances of Vice is on hiatus until autumn. The last event, “Les Secrets du Boudoir” was surprisingly low-key, but I had fun (and finally had an excuse to wear that silk nightie Aunt Mary-Lynn gave me like 10 years ago). rm and marchek looked smashing in, respectively, a snappy new suit and spotless white underpinnings. redstapler, you’ll be pleased to hear that Luna Tart was well-received by the crowd. Afterward I went to Junior’s for the first time and had some of the best pancakes of my life.

  • I really, really do not need a new fandom. Nonetheless, I have a burgeoning infatuation with The Mighty Boosh. And then I ran across this, which really isn’t helping:



    That slice of awesome was directed by Edgar (Spaced/Shaun of the Dead/Hot Fuzz) Wright. The wheelman is Boosh co-creator/star Noel Fielding (“Vince Noir”), and that’s his partner-in-crime Julian Barratt (“Howard Moon”) with the curls in the back seat. Plus, for bonus glee we have Simon Pegg’s BFF Nick Frost next to Jules. I’m not familiar with the guy riding shotgun, but apparently he was also on Spaced, so.

I love that video like the proverbial pie. :-D I didn't know Other Guy in Car was in Spaced, I'd been meaning to find out who played him for AU fic purposes. And General Knowledge.

That vid is up there with Fatboy Slim’s “Weapon of Choice” and OK Go’s “Here It Goes Again” in terms of sheer batshit genius.

According to Wikipedia, Other Guy is a former DJ and bike messenger named Michael Smiley, whose character on Spaced is called Tyres O’Flaherty.

Tyres! I didn't recognize him with all his teeth.
