The Drunken Wine Critic #5
Monday, January 12, 2009
(First of all, a quick plug, Mal Jones redesigned the DC Conspiracy site and it's hot. So go check it out.)
The Drunken Wine Critic was something I started early last year, got some great feedback on, and then abruptly stopped doing it in March after filming the fifth episode. People are always asking me when the next one's coming out and I keep telling them, "eventually." This one was a bitch to edit - there was around four hours of footage and I could have easily made an hour-long movie. Of course the rule of the internet is to keep it to five minutes so I had to kill a lot of awesome (embarrassing) footage. Also, after filming this video I spent an additional two hours sitting down in the shower naked, occasionally puking on myself. I don't know if that's an endorsement for Lil' Jonathan wines or what, but watch the movie and decide for yourself. This video is being cross-posted at the Drunken Wine Critic website.

Two more videos. The first one is the Follow Me Reprise. It has one of my favorite gags towards the end.
The second one is The Sermon on the Mount.
Next time they'll be blow-up dolls and Dan will be playing the part of an ass.
Jesus Christ MegaStar - The Video (Parts 1 and 2)
Wednesday, November 14, 2007
Well...I haven't done any original content for this site in some time and figured I should get on that. I will be uploading a series of 19 videos that make-up Jesus Christ MegaStar...with commentary. Those of you that have been coming to this site for a while are likely familiar with Jesus Christ MegaStar. I've blogged about it several times, even mentioning it in one of my first posts. I talked about the famous blow-up doll prop here and gave a bigger picture of the show here.
Well...Guam sent me a DVD of the show and I decided I needed to share it, despite how bad it is now. The idea is still fantastic, and we're talking about rewriting it now that we're, you know, good writers, but, man...there was some sloppy parts in the original show. Which is fine, because we went from concept to final product in one semester; not bad for a couple of college kids.
Anyway, I'm pretty sure this recording took place during our test performance. The show is incredibly insulting but it has an overall message of redemption and salvation (although we need to bring that out more in the rewrite). For the first show, we essentially invited all of our Christian and Jewish friends to see how many of them walked out. Ironically, the only person that left was PJ, our cameraman, as you can tell by the fact that the camera eventually stops moving. Everyone else had a good time.
From what I understand this show could be performed twice this year, once at Improv Boston and once at some college somewhere.
Well, at any rate, here's the opening:
As I describe in the commentary we advertised the show as this huge event. Then we informed the audience that I'd be playing all parts, the orchestra was replaced with a keyboardist, and we started ten minutes late.
And here's the opening number:
When I finished that song there was a sea of shocked faces in the audience. Pat's line was crucial to let people know that, yes, we meant to make it offensive and, no, we don't support those views.
Enjoy! More coming! Should I also post the versions without commentary?
