What If…


“What if I became so awesome, humanity couldn’t handle it?”
“Everyone dies?”
“Yeah.”
“I think there’s a fear of that.”

Dialogue I wrote up for this week’s Friday Phrases after seeing a Tweet about “Mephobia” and found it amusing. Humor aside, I wonder if there isn’t a bit of this in many people, myself included, that are hesitant of trying their best for fear of things actually going well for them. The flip of that, is clearly there are plenty of people who put things out there whether their best or not. Here’s to continuing to extinguish my “mephobia.”

Tim & Eric’s Bedtime Stories



So far, Tim & Eric’s Bedtime Stories makes me think of a condensed comedy version of Masters of Horror, with notably less gore.
“Hole” went in the direction I expected, but I enjoyed its execution.
“Toes” made me cringe ever so slightly at the beginning, but laugh hard at the end (whether this was intended or not). Its overall content went up a peg on the disturbing meter in comparison to “Hole.”
Next week doesn’t strike me as a particularly creepy/disturbing episode, but there’s no telling how the fellas might spin it. Needless to say (but say it I will), I dig their latest project.
