Bea Arthur - My favorite comediene. She had the best delivery and comic timing ever. Anyone who aspires to learn comedy should study her work because she was the best I have ever heard at delivering a punch line. Perfectly served every time!
Her double takes were the perfect retort to many stupid questions
The topics that were covered on Maude were breakthrough for comedy television, when is the last time the lead character from a sitcom discussed the possibility of getting an abortion...and was still able to make it funny !
The opening title sequence and theme song are still awesome 30 years later
Here clips from two of my favorite episodes
MAUDE'S GUILT TRIP
Maude dreads the visit from old Aunt "Tinki"
Maude's Desperate Hour
Maude thinks that a workman that she insulted is coming to kill her
Bea Arthur's work on the Golden Girls as Dorthy was equally brilliant, but she will always be Maude to me...Right On Maude !
This is great time of year for hockey fans(Go FLYERS!). The NHL PLayoffs are in full gear. There are 16(well 15 now that St Louis is out)battling for the best trophy in all of sports - Lord Stanley's Cup ! The Stanley Cup however seems to have a life of it's own. The cup will tour to the home town of every player on the NHL champions team. The cup also has become a celebrity and an object of much affection!
Golly it was only last week when I though Twitter was so cool, now it has been drug beneath the greasy wheels of the Hollywood dream machine Oprah and Ashton Kutcher the polar ends of the who gives aFuck universe have usurped the masses yet again !
This is tne main reason why I do not eat at fast food franchises. I stick mainly to dinners and never order out as Joe Pesci said in Leathal Weapon 2 " They always fuck you in the drive through" - I am also concerned that any unsupervised food worker has the ability to fuck you as well Dirty Domino's
Hello, Mienfokers ! Today is the 2nd anniversary of MIENFOKS. It was a cold day in late March 2007, when out of shear boredom and curiosity that I crawled out of bed and started blogging.
How much I have learned about linking and embedding and copyright infringement ! What a long strange trip it has been (gratuitous song reference)
I thank every one: friends, family, Facebookers, Twitterers and people who randomly search google, who have visited MIENFOKS and a special shout out to those brave few who have actually clicked on the sponsor ads !
and especially - the real heart of the Mienfoks, the people who had their picture taken with a MIENFOKS t-shirt !!!
What can I say it has been a blast. Waking up every day a 5AM and data mining the popular news sites and Youtubes to bring you the latest in comedy and mockery, the pleasure has been all mine...
...and to those other more corporate bloggers who's content I have continually harvested as my very own I thank you !
This two year experiment in the blog-o-sphere has been nothing if not a huge outlet of my ego driven desires to manipulate the hearts and minds of the viewing public by distracting you from concentrating your energies on things that actually matter.
Some say it was for the money... and to be honest with you the ad revenue is up about 100% over last year, but 200% of nothing is still nothing(as well as mathematically impossible !)
Thank for reading, watching and in some extreme cases touching the screen of MIENFOKS
I wish you all well as this experiment has come to an end and I am quite burnt !
Peace and prosperity
