Hope you all had a good Halloween! Me, for sure. Venkman and Stantz rode ECTO-1 into the Spotlight Club, where we danced the night away with all the ladies and nearly won the prize for best costume. $1.50 draws all night kept the suds in good supply, and people enamored with the Ghostbusters kept the discussions in good supply too.
I personally have never been able to laugh off rejection so ably. Holy other Van Halen lead singer, Batman, I heard every line in the book.
-Sorry, my friends are waiting for me;
-I'll be right back;
-I'll catch you later;
-I need another drink;
-I'm "on the other team";
-If you were dressed as Vanilla Ice, maybe;
-My ex-boyfriend couldn't afford cable (explains why she didn't get my obscure pop culture references)
-Here's my number (note: it was phony);
I officially gave up the chances of securing digits from anyone about 11. I had been rejected enough. Why? I don't get it. Whatever. They can have their losers, their punk ass bitches with low-paying jobs, their bad-costume dopes. The Aqua Teen Hunger Force Halloween Marathon is on, and you can't watch it cos your boyfriend can't afford cable. (.
Ahhh. There, that's better.
All that drama couldn't ruin the fact that the Venkman costume was my favorite EVER. I didn't want to take it off.
Speaking of The Aqua Teen Hunger Force Marathon, how awesome was that? I think it was 4 hours long, and of course, absolutely awesome. I had to turn it off at 1am after the "Mooninites" episode came on. That's my favorite one, and they just don't make stuff any funnier than that.
The idea of Moon People ("Mooninites") that are 2-dimensional, pre-Nintendo graphics with computer voices, who take every opportunity to remind us they are vastly superior to our race? Come on, who thinks of that? I challenge you not to laugh out loud when one of them fires their laser, and a giant square "beam" comes out, moving slowly about 1 foot/second. Carl, the guy they shot at says, "What the hell is that?" The Mooninite says, "Wait for it! When it gets there, you will be destroyed!" When it nears, he steps aside and the beam misses him. Of course, it bounces off the wall and hits him anyway. A "Game Over" sound plays, and he disappears.
They scandalize Meatwad into stealing some electronics gear, get him a tattoo, and start him smoking, leading to the funniest line:
Ignignoct: Now wrap yourself around that rack of DVDs.
Err: Smoke up!
Ignignoct: Smoke while you are doing so.
The Mooninites: Ignignoc (Green, left) and Err (Purple, right)
Of course, this exchange with crazy Carl on the moon is funny too:
Carl: Oh boy, this is what I've always wanted.
Err: Silence nerrrrrd!
Ignignoc: Prepare for a moon spanking.
Err: Now you drop those sweatpants right now!
Indulge me as I drop another quote.
Ignignoc: You and your third dimension.
Frylock: What about it?
Ignignoc: Oh, nothing, it's cute. We have five.
Err: ...Th, Thousand.
Ignignoc: Yes, five thousand.
Err: Don't question it!
Frylock: Oh, yeah? Well, I only see two.
Ignignoc: Well, that sounds like a personal problem.
Shut up and keep reading while I quote again.
Ignignoc: Well for one thing, the moon has one third less gravity than your earth, I don't know if you can understand that, but our vertical leap is beyond all measurement.
Frylock: So what you're saying is that your culture is more advanced, because you can jump higher?
Ignignoc: Yes, obverve. (Jumps 1 inch)
If only I could be that funny. Lord help me.
