The Trailer Park Boys are bringing their new stage show ('Dear Santa Claus: Go F**k Yourself') to Michigan Theater in Ann Arbor this evening.
Anyone going to be there?
I wish I were. I love these guys.
This is completely off topic, I know someone posted a video of Michigan's offense every snap versus Ohio State this year, but I can't find it for the life of me. Can someone post a link?
Sorry for spamming your thread, I just don't have enough points to post :/
Just curious, but why the hell would you want to watch that stuff again? If we won that game, I'd watch it once a week until the 2014 season started, but I never want to see anything from that game again.
but I don't think I'll be driving through there to see any boys, Christmas lights, or anything else for that matter. Just a quiet evening watching NCIS.
Trailer Parks and the University of Michigan generally not referenced in the same breath. The SEC boards can be found elsewhere.
Sorry to be slightly douchey.
Wow, that was really douchey.
Freshman year we watched TPB in our dorm all the time. It's hilarious.
It is (or was) a hilarious show. Seriously. I know the name of it is kinda...off-putting, and the first time I heard of it, I was like, "ehhh..."
But check it out on Netflix; I think they have all of the original TV series seasons available (maybe 4 seasons total?), as well as the 2-3 movies they made later on.
Jim Lahey is without a doubt one of the greatest television characters ever created.
He's got a book out, too -- the "Dicshitnary."
I misspoke before; there were actually SEVEN seasons of the TV show...
So many great episodes... Guest stars included Alex Lifeson of Rush (can't remember if the other members appeared), Sebastian Bach and of course Patrick Swayze (sort of).
That particular episode was fantastic, however.
The actor who plays Lahey doesn't drink, apparently -- at all -- so his portrayal of a perpetual drunk is all the more impressive.
"Closer to the Heart" was the episode with Lifeson (and a great one).
I know that the Trailer Park Boys have been on stage at RUSH concerts before, which is just awesome.
Here's Bubbles with Alex Lifeson and Geddy Lee:
Shit-apples never fall far from the shit-tree.
If these guys performing is anywhere near as funny as the show, I'd love to see them. TPB is just hilarious.
J-Roc is the only character I find hilarious.
"I was just changin'!"
Know I'm sayin?
I wish I was closer around there.
The Tragically Hip had a video called The Darkest One, they were in that video with Don Cherry too, it was great as well.
Bubbles for OC?
Who's a good boy?
Saw both of their feature films, vaguely hoping it would be something like Strangebrew, eh. The second one where they get out of prison and try to pull off the Big Dirty, which winds up being some harebrained scheme to steal quarters, is the best one.
The movies are kinda hit and miss...the TV series was really where it was at.
Don't get me wrong there are some seriously funny scenes in both movies, the second in particular.
It's sold out though, and the few tickets I can find are waaaay too expensive. If they come by next year there's no way I'm missing this!
A mans gotta eat
I have two tickets (very close to each other but not together) available. Anyone interested?
I'll see you shitiots later.
Glad to see that this thread pulled you out of your hiatus.
It appears to be tailor made for you!
I wish, any idea if they're coming to NYC?
Yes sir, Saturday
Didn't know they "toured". Would be a hilarious act to see.
"You know what a shit-barometer is, Bubs? Measures the shit-pressure in the air. You can feel it. Listen, Bubs. Hear that? The sounds of the whispering winds of shit. Can you hear it?... Oh, but you will, my sorry little friend, when the old shit-barometer rises, and you'll feel it too. Your ears will implode from the shit-pressure... beware my friend. Shit-winds are a comin'."
I wish. Please report back.
You have no idea how much I envy you.
I retired from the Navy a few years ago, and was out-processing in Bremerton, Wash. I met with a personnel specialist the previous day, and on this particular day I walked right on through the "barrier" separating the common area from the specialists. Someone stopped me shortly after I cleared the entryway, and I told them "Corey and Trevor said it was ok to walk through."
I went to the show and it was a blast!! Really funny stuff, Bubbles totally stole the show. Ricky refered to Ann Arbor as "Anna Harbor". Lahey was great too and at his drunkest. Randy was great and had a hilarious/disgusting scene where Bubbles had him do a 'gut-solo' during the song "Liquor and Whores", lol. Smokey made an appearance too. Julian didn't do much, but did start a 50/50 raffle which slowly turned into a 60/40 then 80/20. They brought a few people up on stage and interacted really well with the crowd. I was in the balcony and my only complaint was not being able to hear some things very well. Overall fantastic show.
J-roc wasn't there? Know I'm sayin
Nope. No J-Roc.
Wish I could have been there
Loved the show. Will look into the musical.
