General Discussion / Re: What was the first stooge film you've ever seen?
« on: January 12, 2018, 09:26:47 PM »
Wow.  I have no idea what my 1st episode was!  It would have been in the early 1970's.  They used to run them on WKBD 50 in Detroit.  My dad would get home from work and watch the Stooges with my brother and I.  I am a 3rd generation kids 4th generation fans.  For Xmas I bought my dad the complete Stooge collection on DVD.  He deserves it.

Music That Sucks / Re: #1: Huey Lewis and the News

I know this is an old thread. However I couldn't agree more with your statement! I heard this awful excuse of music in the grocery store yesterday and completely forgot the level of suck HLN is. In the short period of ear torture, I felt suicidal, angry, depressed, sad, frustrated and then thoughts of going postal.

I suspect the CIA would use this album as a former of torture.

Preach on Brother! We need to revive this thread.

I always thought Moe swore in this one....does he not say, "Get the f*** off me!" at the 5:15 mark?

In any event, this one is one of THE best if not THE BEST.  Of all Stooge shorts, bar none.  This and Malice in the Palace are the high points for me.

One of my faves!  I love the part where Larry is making a sandwich for Moe, and he is talking to himself, "...and a little mustard....and I know he'll like that!"  Just the way Larry says it and his expression is priceless!

Watch SCRAMBLED BRAINS in the link above

      OK, folks, I have a confession to make.  I, Metaldams, a man of great control, virtue, and moral superiority, on Thursday night drank too much alcohol. Godfrey Daniels!  My head was throbbing all day and I feel much better now, hence I'm ready for this review.  I am ashamed to say I did not listen to Ozzy Osbourne's warning in the lyrics of "Demon Alcohol," so if there is a lesson to be learned, it's listen to those Ozzy lyrics, especially the ones penned by Bob Daisley.  You're welcome for the wisdom, I make these mistakes so you don't have to.  Now let's discuss some Stooges.

      Discuss some Stooges, I say, but this just ain't any Stooge short, it's friggin SCRAMBLED BRAINS.  Picture a nice sunny day, early 70's, and you want to visit a certain Larry Fine.  Chances are he might show you a Stooge short upon your visit, and the chances are great SCRAMBLED BRAINS would be the one he'd show you.  Larry was very fond of this short, and rightfully so.  Like Thump mentions below, there are very surreal bits in this short, unlike anything you'd see on other Stooge shorts, and the comedy and performances throughout are pretty top notch.

      First off, the doll and "mama" gag.  This is actually an old warhorse of a gag that I'm not too fond of in general, but the energy is so good in this short that the performers make it work.  It's Shemp's spastic reactions, Emil Sitka's bizarre glasses and German accent, and the huddle behind Shemp's back that make this bit fun.  Then what follows is the pill swallowing bit, highlighted by Moe trying to shove the entire bottle of pills in Shemp's mouth and forcing them down via Kung fu chop to the throat.  Ah yes, brotherly love at its finest, and in the real world, a drug casualty waiting to happen.  Fortunately, this is not the real world, so yes, this bit is pretty funny. 

      Ah yes, we must discuss Babe London, making her only Stooge appearance.  She's a bit older here than her Laurel and Hardy and Chaplin appearances.  In her younger days, she played what in modern terms would be known as a "BBW," if that's your thing (to each their own, my friend), but yeah, she's older now and a bit hideous looking.  I think it's by design, I'm at least hoping that gap between her teeth was false.  Her vocal inflection after Shemp states he's going to take her to a honeymoon on the isle of Stromboli, if memory serves me correct, if appropriately garbled and hideous.  One of the great ugly girl roles, right up there with anything Dee Green ever did, and the hallucination of Shemp thinking she's a young pretty nurse is a wonderfully fun and surreal bit.

      Speaking of surreal, Shemp at the piano, holy shittake mushrooms, Batman!  What a brilliant scene.  My favorite part would be the hands playing the swinging ragtime bit while they do the close-up of Shemp excitedly getting down to the music, but the whole scene rocks the casbah.  I'm also a big fan of the chopped off, isolated fingers slowly playing the piano as Shemp looks on in horror.  Overall, a Stooge scene unlike any other, a true stand out in this epic discussion we are having.

       Oh but wait, there is more.  The greatest Stooge phone booth scene ever can be found here, the boys tearing it up with Vernon Dent.  As for Larry, the close ups of him with broken egg shells on his head as well as the milk pouring all over him rank among his best shots ever,and with Larry, that's really saying something.  I can understand his enthusiasm for this short based on these shots alone.  Poor Vernon getting the cake in the kisser and the epic stunt dummy fall when the phone booth falls down are all great moments, as is poor Vernon's aftermath stuck in the corner, tangled up in wires, a complete groggy mess.

      One of the all-time greats, there are no other shorts like this one.


Here! Here!  A classic!!!  I love this one.   An Epic Shemp.....Oh Nora, oh Nora.....LOL!

A decent Curly.

Larry shines in this one. "An offspring!"

Every baby since that time I have referred to as "an offspring" including my two boys!  Good stuff!

"Millions for defense....but not one cent for tribute....and we're pretty tough ourselves!"

That line always cracked me up!

Yeah, that certainly looked like a catch to me--the ball didn't move until Dez hit the ground; but I wouldn't say that one call was the reason Dallas lost. It seems like the Boys had plenty of opportunities to put Green Bay away & after DeMarco Murray put Dallas ahead 21-13, I was ready to call the game--but obviously, that dude named Aaron Rodgers was not ready to call it a day....

I'm going against the grain, but I'm picking the Pack to shock the world this Sunday. And it goes without saying that Tom Brady owns Andrew Luck....

I concur.  I am not a whiny Lions fan, so I accepted this as a loss on the team, not the officials.  Murray's fumble, IMO, was the Bell tolling Doom.....and no pass rush, etc.  On to 2015!

Sheesh!  Why all the Cowboys hate?  Cmon,guys, AMERICA'S TEAM!


Bummed we lost to the Pack....but even more so for my 8 year old who could not fathom why Dez "non-catch" was that.  I could not explain it to him. 

I have a simple solution for all the NFL referee problems:  throw the current rule book away and go back to the one they used in 1970!

Go Seattle!

Thanks. And if Aaron Rodgers calf is a serious issue, the Boys will pull off the upset....

...and the Seattle Seahawks will host the NFC Championship........(with Dallas as the guest...I hope!)

If the Cardinals had anything resembling a good quarterback, I believe they could make a serious run at the Super Bowl--but you know what they say about "ifs" and "buts"...

Yep.  1st team out.  Always next year.  I felt kind of bad for them.  Looked completely lost tonight.

It might be a little harder now that they decided to let that cheap shot artist piece of shit Ndamukong Suh get out of his one game suspension.

True.  But I hope not.  Go Dallas!

I don't know about the Super Bowl, but if all goes right vomit, then I think Dallas should smash Detroit this coming Sunday....

That would be a great start (and not just because I live in Michigan).......and than a beatdown of the Pack, and I could be happy with that.

Cowboys are looking like a team that could make a lot of noise in the postseason....

I hope so.  As a LONG suffering fan, the 'Boys need to do get another ring.  Hate to see Witt & Romo go out without one!  Go Cowboys!

Romo is the highest rated QB in the league right now.  But can he keep it up in the playoffs?  I certainly hope so.  Happy Festivus to you all!!!!

"Of alll the clumsy idiots!"
Moe: "Beat it sister, we don't want anyone learning our trade secrets!"


"Is that not a swastika?"
"Yes that is a swastika!"
"Is that not a dirty rat?"
"Yes, that is a dirty rat!"

Love this episode.

Who wants to win the sorry ass mess that is the NFC South division; 7-9 might be enough to win it--imagine the outcry if that were to happen...


Yep.  Remember a few years back the 7-9 'Hawks made it in?

I wonder how severe the Carson Palmer injury is--although we know Stanton can win games. Bruce Arians continues to work his magic--yet, somehow I feel the sports stations still won't be talking enough about how good the Cards are. Oh well....

Sorry dude.  Bad.  Not good.  I feel for the man.  I hate to see ANY player get such a bad injury!
