Also in this time, however, Same Guys, New Dresses appeared on my doorstep. At least I had the Kids to keep me company (I was, of course, at home, and not near those other kids, but I’ll be back at school tomorrow.)
- Dave and Kevin are mean. I like them, but they’re mean. Dave is especially mean.
- I think I like Scott better now, which is funny, because I probably saw him a lot worse than I ever had before in SGND. I think part of it has to do with him being the underdog. Everyone mocks Scott.
- Mark is exactly as I thought he was – exactly. It’s quite terrifying how exact I was in my assessment of him. When I was writing about Falling Angels I said "there’s a closed-off, businesslike streak to McKinney", so what do we get in SGND? A scene of him talking about the ‘business situation’. Hah.
- Mark mentioned Bruce’s lip synching to the lines in the first season! Major ‘hee’ moment there, if I could, in my illness, have made any kind of noise resembling a ‘hee’.
- Mark pretty much refused to say anything overly negative about Bruce in the commentary with Scott, which was really sweet. If Bruce had been sitting next to him, I bet he would have said something. Actually, the only person he was really critical of was himself – oh, and Scott – but that comes back to observation number two. Well, and he was also critical of Dave’s drinking, but Dave is a total lush.
- There wasn’t much of Bruce and I wanted more.
- Dave doesn’t think his going away to do NewsRadio was ‘it’, but everyone else seems to. I find it interesting that he included that in the film. He’s a ruthless director in that sense, I guess.
- You do kind of get to the point, (as is mentioned in the commentary), where you’re wondering what is ‘real’ and what is for the cameras.
- Bellini speaks! He speaks and he has a really weird voice! But he speaks and that’s just bizarre.
- I shall forever hate Dave Foley, and myself, for the ‘Dave’s Eye Surgery’ link on the DVD. David, why did you include that? Loz, why did you click the link? I’ve always been particulary squeamish when it comes to eyes. I managed to purge some of those noxious liquids after perusing that scene for a second, let me tell you.
- The cast bios are insane and so much funnier if you hear the Kids voices in your head.
- There was way too much footage of Abraham the robot dog. Yes, it was a bittersweet tragicomedy, but there were at least two scenes which could have been cut given the overall length of the film.
- Mike Myers said what every other man (and woman) thinks when viewing Foley in drag.
- I love the Kids in the Hall.
Brain Candy should be turning up in my mail some time next week. I can’t help but think of it apprehensively, since it was clearly a matter of great pain and annoyance for the Kids. It’s kind of like the Yoko Ono of Canadian comedy.
I can't tell you how glad I am I'm feeling better. I thought for a second I was going to the great spittoon in the sky. I still have more fangirlish drooling to do down here, thank you kindly!
