Hippies is a british sitcom that ran in 1999 for six episodes to then disappear into obscurity. At the time critics apparently gave the show bad reviews, but since then it has developed a small following. Most notable about the show is the cast (Simon Pegg, Julian Rhind-Tutt, Sally Philips, Darren Boyd) and staff (Graham Linehan and Arthur Mathews), all important names in the current british comedy circuit, as well as the past (Mathews worked for the 80s sketch show Alas Smith & Jones).
The show is set in 60's London, where Ray Purbbs, played by Simon Pegg, runs the underground magazine "Mouth". Julian Rhind-Tutt plays Alex Picton-Dinch, the straight guy in the bunch, smarter than everyone else  and with a whealthy upbringing. He is a writer for the Mouth. Well, I say he writes for the Mouth, but one of the main jokes is that Ray is in fact the only person in the office (and by office I mean his flat, and by flat I mean a weird crappy basement-thingy with a toilet), who seems to give a crap about the magazine and the ideals of hippie culture.

Throughout the show it becomes clear that the main cast doesn't care about each other very much and that they would abandon their friends for a chocolate bar.

Ray is the heart of the group, meaning nobody really likes him but for some reason everybody hangs out with him. He constantly states his drastic and radical political views, but it becomes obvious that more than anything else he is interested in becoming an important figure in the hippie movement.

I swear folks I discovered this site  completely by accident. apparently its a site dedicated entirely to podcasting on the phone.

its different from Skype in that you can have as many callers simultaneously chiming in. its really fun.

anyways here are the few experimental podcasts I made on that site so far. yes the matrix society is in development hell. don't blame me, blame my hectic work schedule.

Has anyone on the site considered riffing public access shows?  I had recently seen an odd show called Dancing with Frank Pacholski on youtube, and I immediately thought of Cinema Snob.

I feel this is a gold mine for you guys.  Anyone else think the same?

From my Soviet Counterpart's series, Mad Doctor’s Plot–—a review of a classic 1977 science fiction animated short from beyond the Iron Curtain, concerning the creation and employment of psychic robot tanks!

It does not go well.


Almost in time for April Fool’s Day, too–bah, “day late is one MORE than on-time. Iz one BETTER!” SALYUT!

    We can all name terrible movies that were huge hits (and probably spawned a series), but you might be surprised to learn how often it’s the other way around. All it really takes to rock the box office, let’s face it, is a good marketing campaign, with a trailer promising more of what we’ve flocked to in the past, so major filmmaking studios can get away with not sweating quality too much. (Grown Ups 2 ending up a major hit this year should speak for itself.) But when you have none of the above, as many up-and-coming talents and against-the-grain visionaries do not, your only chance at major success is usually to create something good enough to draw attention to itself. Most movies made in these conditions don’t catch on, but not because they were failed attempts.
