bloodyrosemccoy: (Wassail ... In CANS)
I am actually starting to recognize actors* in Coronet educational shorts. ("Hey, look! It's Huge Forehead Guy!")

My claim that I’m watching them partially FOR ANTHROPOLOGICAL PURPOSES may be wearing a bit thin.

I have started trawling the iRiff archives. It’s like a vending machine—spend 75¢ - $1.25 and either get a tasty snack or the machine eats your money, causing you to rattle it and swear until it falls on you and crushes your lower torso. I’ve found ones my siblings and I have quoted to each other for weeks, and some I couldn’t bear to continue watching.** But I must admit, the shorts are always entertaining.

Also, I just saw the first 50’s short narrated by a WOMAN PERSON. You find all sorts of treasures buried in the archives—well, almost. I have yet to find a girl to RIFF, but all things in time.


*Or, at least, the people in front of the camera.

**As I described one to my brother, “it was like watching a Beavis and Butthead riff, if they spoke it through a cardboard tube.” Turns out “Hurrrrr, shirt, hurrrr hurr HURRRR” is not a worthy riff.
