Powerloafing
 
Dear BUTM:

I am a former Mr. Show writer. I once wrote a sketch known as "Blow Up The Moon," for Mr. Show about NASA scientists endeavoring to destroy Earth's natural satellite with explosives.

I'm now addressing the important and influential online community known as Blow Up The Moon with utmost urgency about a new project called Powerloafing:

http://powerloafing.com/

It will eventually become an international phenomenon, but I wanted the BUTM community to know about it first. The project involves some Mr. Show folks, as well as other familiar faces, and we will be rolling out new material in the coming months.

Please inspect the site, and if it meets your comedic standards, I urge you to pass it along to fellow BUTM members, and the civilian public. Thank you for your time.

Mike Upchurch

I can't belive you are actually speakin to us, the people of BUTM, but i just thought i'd be a dick for the day:
The moon orbits around the sun, as recent studies have shown.

Other than that powerloafing seems to be one hell of an idea.

I was hoping the link led to a site with a picture of three old men engaging in sexual activity.

I love my lemonparty!

EDIT: I'm getting HTML in lieu of episodes?

This was up on the Brian Posehn forum months ago. So I knew about it first, cause I'm the shit.

Maybe it's because we're smart and use firefox.

Firefox (and Opera)
 
I love Firefox because it has the best user interface of any browser. Unfortunately, Firefox (and also Opera) sometimes has problems displaying graphics intensive sites, including Powerloafing. This causes me untold sorrow.

Try Explorer, Netscape or Safari. I'm working on fixing the problem. I hope this helps.

Mike, what was it like writing for Mr. Show?

What do you think of Bob and David as writers/performers/producers?

What was your favorite idea/sketch that you wrote/didn't write?

What's it like doing whatever you're doing right now?

Why does Paul Greenberg write for Blue Collar TV?

Thanks.

Mike, what was it like writing for Mr. Show?

If you were reading a magazine with your feet up and the boss walked in, you weren't in trouble. Hanging around with your co-workers cracking jokes was not grounds for termination. Sometimes your boss would give notes dressed as a Beatle, or in priests garb, or in gay biker leather. Other than that it was like any other job.

What do you think of Bob and David as writers/performers/producers?

Both have done admirable post Mr. Show work. Two totally random gut-laughs: David doing a promo bit with an exercise ball where the ball pops, and Bob as a retarded guy in a Channel 101 bit. I spit milk on both of those, (I drink milk while I watch comedy to gage its effectiveness.) I think both Bob and David have their best work ahead of them. They probably have a lot of their worst work ahead of them also, but they'll be working, which is important to their financial dependants.

What was your favorite idea/sketch that you wrote/didn't write?

That I wrote: It begins with a "B."

That I didn't write: (no particular order) Drugachusettes, Story of Everest, Civil War Reenactors, Mustardayonnaise, New KKK, Pre-taped Call in Show, Taint, Monster Mash Philouza, Coupon the Movie, Change for a Dollar. That?s all I can think of, but I'm sure there are more.

What's it like doing whatever you're doing right now?

I'm an apartment dweller in North Hollywood. I have fake florescent lights stuck to my ceiling, and half a cubicle in my living room. I spent a recent stretch of unemployment working on my own projects, which has been really cool. Luckily, I still have 1.3 million dollars of Mr. Show money in the bank, but as soon as that runs out, (about a month,) I'll have to get a job of some kind.

Why does Paul Greenberg write for Blue Collar TV?

Thank you for asking a Powerloafing related question, Scotch. A 4 to 1 ratio is not too shabby in these parts I would imagine. Paul Greenberg, the star of Powerloafing, worked on the first season of Blue Collar as a writer. Besides being a hilarious comedic actor, he's also a great sketch writer. He makes a comfortable living playing Carl in Powerloafing, but he loves to dabble in sketch writing occasionally, so he worked a season with Blue Collar for fun.

I hope I've fully answered your questions. Feel free to fill out an employee feedback form so that we may better serve you in the future.

I have another question: I noticed you don't link to aspecialthing.com on your page. Actually this isn't really a question, but fuck those guys.

scotch-romanian 03-29-2005 03:43 PM

Mike -

Sorry if it seemed like I was just throwing those questions out there, but I really am interested, and your answering them was actually the highlight of my shitty Spring Break.

I'm going to check out the Powerloafing site in more detail some time in the following week and then get back to you.

Thanks again.

p.s. I always thought CptPlanet was the grandfather of BUTM, but I realize now that it was you all along.

Tis I JuanBallsac.

Hey Mikey(can I call you Mikey?)

Any-hoo. Why does George Lopez have a career?

If he decides to start a band do you think it would be funny if he called it the Acne Scars?

Did you have anything to do with Dream of a Lifetime? If so I bow to thee. If not, I still tip my large cowboy hat in protective plastic to you.

What are the odds of you noting my script? 94 pages.
