MTV is in search of some cred and they are trying their luck with the new sketch comedy show The Human Giant. I like 'em. Funny guyz Paul "Babyface" Scheer, Rob "OliveGarden" Huebel, Aziz "Wonderboy" Ansari and director Jason "Smartguy" Woliner have made a name for themselves on the 'net but Thursday, April 5th, 10:30EST is their American TV debut.
The first free episode is on iTunes. There are lots of short films, leaks and clips around. They tend toward the weird and wacky (lots of wigs and oddballs) and have an background in improv, friendship, and being funny.
Alright, this is for the Scattergories players from last night. Including Alice's added point for angina, the scores are as such: Ken 13, Maryam 35, Alice 35, and myself 44. (I didn't cheat, I swear) And three cheers for Willow. Truly a classic movie that I should have seen in full much earlier than last night.

Meet James Porter, above, a dignified, successful and very well-dressed business executive, who arrives at an upscale restaurant for an important meeting, only to find that this is a restaurant with some VERY strict requirements.
All comments, thoughts, criticism, suggestions are appreciated! Any details left out? Tell me!
Goal: To create the worst ad ever for a cell phone company which is trying to sell phones to the pre-teen market.
Scene (:30 sec) Fade in...a young boy with thick black rimmed glasses wearing a bulky winter coat is struggling to get his backpack off inside a school hallway. Once the backpack is off he unzips the bag, pulls out all his books and starts digging around in the bottom of the bag. After 5 seconds of searching he produces a quarter.
He piles his books up and sruggles to push them toward the wall where 2 payphones are hanging. Using his makeshift "book step stool" he strains on his tiptoes to reach the slot to insert his quarter. Sadly, he cannot reach high enough.
He sits down sadly on his pile of books, when a young female classmate walks up and hands him hercell phone. The boy looks at her with thanks in his eyes and flips the phone open displaying the brand name on the phone display.
Voiceover (female "motherly voice") "Sometimes you just need to talk to your mom"
The boy lifts the phone to his ear. "Mom? The gym teacher touched me again"
Fade in - Product shot w/voiceover
"The new XXXX from XXXXXX - don't you wish you could always be there"
A drab gray room has several men in fatigues, with large knives, standing behind American TV personality Mark Hopkins, of the Mark Hopkins Show, who wears a jumpsuit and is blind folded. He bobs his head as if he hears a song in his head.
A man with a large sword approaches him after he adjusts a video camera, catching the whole scene.
What are you doing Hopkins? There is no music in here!
I can't get this song out of my head: "Hey Mr. Taliban, Taliban banana, Bagdad hot and I wanna go home."
“Hopkins, you are an infidel! An infidel, an infidel! By the way, how was your breakfast?
Not bad, thanks, but a bit spicy, so don't be offended if I'm a bit gassy. (farts)
Infidel! Infidel! Infidel (coughs) (waves hand in front of his face) Jeez, who's killing who here! Where was I?... I have bad news and I have good news for you.
“What’s the bad news?”
“Your head comes off on Monday”
“Damn, I hate Mondays, I never have anything good happens on a Monday”
Executioner: (crosses arms smugly)
“So, ready to plead for your pathetic life?”
“I’m not really the pleading type, besides, I’ve been Pretty depressed lately.”
“OH, come now, plead just a little bit?”
“No, not my style. Just get it over with, With Seinfeld cancelled and only reality tv, You might as well cut my head off.”
“Trust me, you’re no Seinfeld...you have too many puns and your humor borders on the tasteless... Oh come now, plead a little, we’re wasting tape!”
“Hey...I thought you said you had good news?”
“Oh, I’m saving a ton of money on my car insurance.”
Hopkins: (pulls off his blindfold) “Can I have their number?”
‘Sure, my friend, I give you the number Tuesday.”
“Cool,....hey...wait a minute...Tuesday?
Both start laughing with their heads titled back, give each other a high-five And freeze frame.
