That's today's ultra-fun Twitter meme! Here are some of ours for your consideration:

"You had me at 'Thetans drop in a capsule from Venus and impregnate human women.'"

"I'm sorry, were you addressing me? I assume you're addressing me because there's no one else in my immediate vicinity."

"Here's looking at you, cameraman."

"I'll be back...after I improve my English just a smidge."

"I'm the king of this ship that's going to sink tragically in about an hour!"

"Mama always said life was like a box with your wife's head in it. Wait. That can't be right."

"Soylent Green is Go-gurt!"

You got some?

up-poster.jpgSo I'm getting more and more excited about the July show as it approaches. Angus MacLane, Shawn Levy, Robin Romm, Laura Gibson..it's a lineup and a half. And, as usual, I'm getting my stellar questions written. Here's just a sampling:

For Shawn Levy, author of Paul Newman, A Life:
How hot was Paul Newman? Am I right, ladies?
Did he ever ask about me?
If he was a salad dressing, what kind of salad dressing would he be?
Are you hungry? I'm hungry now.

For Angus MacLane, lead animator on Wall•E and animator on UP:
Did Wall•E ever ask about me?
That whole balloons carrying the house thing in "Up"...you can't actually do that, right?
Wall•E takes place in this dystopic distant-future where the world is overrun with garbage so humans have taken off to live in space on a cruise-ship-like spaceship. Was this the first Pixar documentary?

I mean, those are just a start. I've got tons more. What do you want to ask these guys?

The Live Wire Webster has arrived!

If you're on Twitter (Are you? Are you? Don't you wanna be? Huh?), you may have followed along on Saturday night as Jonpaul Mclellan, the Live Wire Webster let you in on the action onstage. Not to give too much away before we air, but there were geeks, chickens, Portugeuse Sidewinders, Yummy Nummers and Millard Filmore.

 

In July, he'll start offering up illuminating video of all the behind-and-in-front-of-the-scenes action. So come to the live show, and become a web STAR!!
