Things I’m Having a Hard Time Believing Are Gone

24 is Gone – I can’t believe that Jackson Publick and Doc Hammer killed off Henchman 24. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised, The Venture Brothers isn’t the best animated series on TV because it takes the easy way out. Vintage Caveman has a nice obituary for everyones favorite Ray Romano sound alike henchman.

Mike and The Mad Dog are No More– Here’s one for the New Yorkers. In case you haven’t heard of them, Mike and The Mad Dog were a radio duo who covered sports in NY. I’m going to miss tuning in to hear those two together when I go back home. Especially when they’d branch into non sports topics. You have not heard unintentional comedy until you’ve heard them give movie reviews. Pure comedy gold those two. I’m paraphrasing but I believe that this was their review of the career of Stanley Kubrick, they were discussing him because Eyes Wide Shut had just been released:

Mike – A very popular director, a very straaaaaaange director.

Mad Dog – He was strange Mikey, very strange.

Mike – I did not understand this movie. You will leave this movie not knowing what just happened.

Mad Dog – He was strange Mikey, very strange.

  1. GODDAMNIT I HADN’T WATCHED IT YET, WILL.
    Fuckpants.

  2. I AM THE KING OF BASEBALL!!!!

    I wrote a screenplay adaptation of Shakespeare’s Coriolanus where instead of a Roman soldier, the protagonist was a New York baseball player. The bad guys in the play are The Tribunes, who are referred to as “the voices of the people.”

    So naturally, in my script, they were thinly veiled versions of M&tMD.
