@KP: episode 2.2 (Roy's "heart attack" is a brilliant moment), even though 2.1 is definitely the best of all 4 seasons.
Avatar Sat. 3/16/13 5:16pm Holly in NC:

I'm fine, Noah, and love Terre's show! Cherry Blossom Clinic usually = at least 2 of the 5 saved shows I have on my phone at any given time. Currently it's 3 ;-)

No prolly. Yes i recognize the episodes. id have to say my favorites are the one with the cannibal murderer and the Gay play. The latter just because i t was the first i saw.
Avatar    Sat. 3/16/13 5:21pm Caryn:

@the Gay play is 2.1! I just love how the awkwardness escalates and escalates with all three characters.

Avatar    Sat. 3/16/13 5:32pm Caryn:

@KP: controversial comedy genius. "IT Crowd" was a rare moment of him working on something other than his own stuff (played Denholm). I recommend all his stuff, but especially "Brass Eye", "Jam" and "Four Lions".

Avatar    Sat. 3/16/13 5:49pm Caryn:

@KP:I'm guessing that they're gathering money so quickly that they are waiting until the last moment to set a goal, just so they don't go over 100 % before time, thus potentially discouraging pledgers.
Avatar Sat. 3/16/13 5:51pm Andrew Waterloo:

Seems the trend is to reach the goal and simply bump it up again

The only thing I know of Chris Morris is a brilliant and chilling clip called "Unflustered Parents" that got a lot of airplay on WFMU about 10 years ago. Horrifying and great.

@Caryn 5:49PM: I think that's how it works. In past years they set a goal early in the show, and would often overshoot or not come close, neither of which was good. So now they wait till the halfway mark or later to set a goal they can see they will at least come close to.

Here, with Tom as a fundraising wildcard, they were thinking like you said, I bet, Caryn...

I preferred the open goal format. I think it motivates.Can always adjust a little.

The Blue Jam radio series (which was adapted into the Jam TV series) is absolutely brilliant. One of my favourite radio/comedy things ever. They're all available online.

@cklequ: the weirdest thing is, the DVD version has an option which supposedly gives the show full control of your DVD player. I tried it out once, and, indeed, the player wouldn't respond to controls at all. Had to unplug it from the wall to make it stop showing "Jam".

Hey Noah. Things going pretty good here. Successful marathon so far this year.
Avatar    Sat. 3/16/13 6:03pm cklequ:

I've read that a lot of the skits on the tv show were taken directly from "Blue Jam" with the actors lip synching. Which makes the whole show that much creepier. I think the "unflustered parents" was one of those.

On a related note, I turned off the radio in my truck a while ago (during tjis show -- had to use voice command on the phone) and it stayed on even with the button physically in the "off" position. WFMU is now in control of my radio.

@cklequ: true. It adds to the otherworldly quality.
