I’ve been seeing a lot of Bill Nye the Science Guy on my dash lately. And I thought as a public service I should share this Bill Nye gem from Almost Live! The Streetwalking Lawyers of Aurora Avenue*.
Bill Nye got his start on the Seattle sketch comedy show Almost Live! in the early 90s. Watch the show and you will see Bill Nye dressed as women, a speedwalking superhero and of course blowing lots of things up with science. His “science guy” character was one of the recurring sketches on the show.
Some of the Almost Live! characters would later appear on Bill Nye the Science Guy such as Billy Quan** and Uncle Fran, although they did have to clean up Uncle Fran a lot to make it child-appropriate (BTW the guy who played Uncle Fran wrote the screenplay for Nebraska).
*Aurora Avenue (well, parts of it) is Seattle’s Red Light District.
**Billy Quan perpetuates a lot of racial stereotypes
I’ve been waiting for this to show up on my dash again, it’s been like 2 years wtf.
hOLY FUCKING SHIT
okay so my history teacher showed me this and you shouldve seen her face when she said the last line
Oh my god. Holy shit. What. the. hell.
One problem here. Lincoln was not shot in a theater named Kennedy. It was at the Ford’s Theater. BUT:
Kennedy was shot in a Lincoln automobile, made by Ford.
One of the best TV commercials ever.
Help! I’m dying!!!!!! LOL!
(a related question: Is “Sissi” for the Germans what “Sound of Music” is for Americans?)
Na. She is an AUSTRIAN empress. not german. ( it is a little annoying to be mixep up. really austrian and german are not the same OTL )
Yes, I know that! I’m talking about TV audiences here not the nationality of the characters in the movie.
Look at the next line. By that same logic you would say that I’m implying the characters in “The Sound of Music” are American.
The film “Sissi” is very popular with German audiences, just as “Sound of Music” is popular with American audiences (of course both films are popular with other audiences).
See this. “Sissi” is one of the most popular Christmas-time films on German TV.
I love doing Tweets from the Barricade, but I’ve got to make sure I can do my work for real life too. And real life work just got much more complicated (long story). I want to continue with Tweets from the Barricade; I don’t want to quit. So I have decided to cut Tweets from the Barricade down to once a week. I had been trying to do it 3 times a week but now I’m going to have to switch to once a week. So from here on I will post a new Tweet from the Barricade every Monday at 7 a.m. Pacific Standard Time (U.S.).
This should be much more manageable for me.
