Going through my archives, finding the stuff I've saved and never posted. So, hopefully, that will be my week-- a bit of house cleaning! Starting with outtakes from The Mighty Boosh, Series 1. Lot's of laughs!

A behind the scenes look at Luxury Comedy: Tales From Painted Hawaii from The Velvet Onion. Cast interviews, a few outtakes, and lots of laughter. Bless them for being there for us!

I'm sorry I can't credit this picture because I have no clue where it came from--I'm guessing it was a fan photo from Tuesday evening after the NMTB taping. Anyway the person that captioned it mentioned "Pip's coat". My husband saw the picture before I did and read it to me and then wondered aloud "who's Pip?". And without even thinking about it, I said "Pip Valentine." Yes, that jacket will always say Pip to those of us in the know!

Not something I'm familiar with in the US, but there is a nice article about it at The Velvet Onion and we get to hear Julian's smooth voice. I actually get a kick out of the commercial, the wife's glance at Fred, the husband's questioning look. It's a win-win!

My first true obsession was Tolkien's Middle Earth and it started with this animated TV event. I had a teacher that was a huge LOTR fan and he recommended to our class that we watch this-- which a friend and I did, and then we read the books and re-read them and saw Ralph Bakshi's Lord of The Rings multiple times. I spread that love on to my husband and my children when Peter Jackson made the movies, better than 10 years now. Yes, my obsessions can be long-lived!

The 28th season of NeverMind The Buzzcocks will be starting soon with Rhod Gilbert sitting as permanent host, the first since Simon Amstell announced that he wouldn't be returning in 2009. Yes, there is excitement at my house. We've been rewatching past years in anticipation!

Joseph Lynn's behind the scenes documentary, which I believe is included on the DVD. But, if like me, the chances of getting the DVD are slim, watch it here! It really is a good look at the fun the crew had making Luxury Comedy. And they call it work...

When? Where? I don't know, but we've all seen that hat enough to guess it's around 2007. It has the feel of a photo shoot for a magazine article to me, but it could just as easily be publicity shots. Whatever, it's definitely one of my favorite shots of Julian. And I want Noel's coat.

A couple of pictures from The Velvet Onion's Twitter, taken on Monday, (Sept. 15), just days before he colored his hair back to black. I'm a bit sad about it-- just look at that second picture.

Going through and "cleaning up" some stuff that I saved to use earlier and somehow missed. Noel did this interview for the premier of Luxury Comedy: Tales of Painted Hawaii. While discussing the first LC series, he states that it was a reaction to his experience with The Mighty Boosh:
"Julian and I got grossly popular – that wasn't supposed to happen! That was not in the script. "
Unlike so many interviews that he did pre-LC that mainly discussed his upcoming TV show, this one covers many topics, Julian and The Mighty Boosh being mentioned often. He ends it by discussing Never Mind the Buzzcocks and his upcoming Stand-Up gigs. It's a good read. Read it Here

This is the last one--yes, we waited with bated breath for a year for five episodes. But they were quality, so it was worth the wait!

A companion to what I posted yesterday. Is it any question that Julian and Noel were meant for each other? Definitely, we can see the seeds of The Mighty Boosh and Luxury Comedy.

Today, enjoy Episode 3, Reality Man. This episode features Richard Ayoade as Reality Man, and of course Fantasy Man and Big Chief Whoolabum Boomalackaway are featured characters!

So today I'm reposting the second episode, Saving Terry. I love the music at the end-- yeah, Serge!

I previously posted a couple of episodes of Tales From Painted Hawaii, but they got shut down. Having found them again, I'm going to repost them and hope for the best. This second series has a coherent story line, whereas the first series had a very loose, barely there story line, so if you really didn't care for the first series, take 23 minutes and give this one a chance. If you did like the first series, I think you'll be delighted to see some of our favorite characters are black, plus a few new ones. (Personally, Curtis Tony and Tony Curtis slay me, every time!) Basoo!

More of The Culture Show, this time talking about The Mighty Boosh performing live. I've seen stills from this and didn't know where they came from-- now I do!!! Noel and the green coat. It's worth watching, just for that!

Cleaning up some of my "archive" and I found this hidden treasure-- an interview about Series 3. I had forgotten this, so it's like I'm watching it again for the first time! They talk about their early influences. I really don't know anything about this interview and it isn't something I've seen pop up on other sites. So, please enjoy it as much as I did!

It' over, all too soon. The anticipation built for a year, and then in five short weeks, zip and we're done! Sooo, on that note, I'm posting a short teaser that I never posted with Tom and Mike. (And yes, I thought it was worth the wait!)

Why do we love Noel Fielding? Because he dresses up as Old Gregg in a see-through tutu with only his y-fronts on underneath. And why do we love Julian Barratt? 'Cos he acts like that's a natural thing to do.
Well, those aren't the only reasons, but I think it's a good start.
