We're finally back! About time, too. It's not been the best week here in Wonderful Noiseland, but I'm back on my... ass, where I've been all along, but you get what I'm trying to say. Back in the saddle, how about that? So folks, after a long and just super crappy gulf between That Movie and today, we're back with what I've been told is a lighter movie.
Given what the last one was, that tells me nothing.
So hey I need to whip Roomie into shape about fixing the list thingy. I like it updated, and it's not. Bad Roomie.
What do I know about Groundhog Day? Well let's see here...
• It's not That Movie. Big plus.
• I suspect quite a large portion of the movie will take place on February 2nd. Or the major climax will occur on February 2nd. Or the inciting incident takes place on February 2nd. No I don't have any idea why I would think of that date, why do you ask?
• There is a man named Ned and he gives a speech. He might be the main character. I've got nothing here, just a friend who used to do "the Ned speech" and tell me it was from Groundhog Day.
• I suppose it could be like "THE DAY OF THE GROUNDHOGS" and there's actually groundhogs in it. Day of the Triffids is not my favorite John Wyndham book, for the record (The Chrysalids).
Yeah that's all. Onward!
What does "Some thematic elements" even mean?
Columbia. And jaunty polka type music
2/2 with a tuba and clarinet. Polka.
And now it's a march?
I was wrong, it's a march. Tempo's too low
Where WOULD you like to be, Phil
there's nothing there what the HEY PETER
Does anyone take him seriously when he does that?
BIG BLUE THINGS! Like your whole backdrop
So this is Phil from Pittsburg. Hey Phil.
I'm not going to try to spell that
Someone likes his job
TOLD by Larry. Hello Larry.
Hello Rita. You're... very strange
Bah, she's cute
Hehe, cutting from the TV to full screen
This is a catchy little number, isn't it
thank you George for this
Small town looks like a lot of Cape Breton spots
wait seriously WEATHERMAN love song?
Phil, I don't think anyone's gonna be sad to see the back end of you
Hahaha Rita you're cute.
No come on go to hell blood sausage is awesome
GO YOU RITA. GO. YOU.
Okay I saw the word, I saw it twice now, I still can't spell that
and again with the Weatherman song. This is silly :P
Well this is the definition of small town, isn;'t it
like actual town as opposed to "loose collection of houses on a road"
There you go, Phil, rewards for complaining! :D
Thhhhat was a euphemism
He's just a gem to everyone, isn't he
Okay, Groundhog Day, let's get some inciting incident in this bitch
Is that a real song? It's not good
They named the groundhog?
Yes that was the joke. Don't explain it.
HAHAHA he's just so charmingly contemptioble
Is he really YEP HE'S WEATHERMANNING
Don't let him into Canada he'd destroy all of society
We depend on the weather talk, seriously
That wasn't even effort, Phil
This man's voice annoys me
OH WELL FUCK IT'S NED.
whistling belly button seriously
Holy goddamn punch him in the face you antisocial bastard you should be good at this
Ned the bullshit get him off of my screen
"Something else" HAHAHAHA
Ohhh never a fan of that one. Mind you, not a concern in the near future
Now that's a polka!
Oh the place is not actually called that A GIANT LEECH well that's accurate
Yes Rita you have encapsulated cold weather behavior
"Who told you" OWNED.
Still not gonna spell that
Oh you're also Phil. Haha.
That's a groundhog?
HHAHA the face
I love that guy's voice
Listen to it it's hilarious
What is with the shadow business anyway
How are you still employed
Annnd we have a catchphrase for Larry
Oh maybe he'll get fired or reamed out for SNOW
Snow doesn't do that, that's not snow
I mean you know what I mean
I MAKE THE WEATHER
He looks quite aged
Phil has NO TIME FOR YOUR SNOW
"with some booze in it?" Some form of joke that didn't HAHA you're just the worst sir.
So whapt happens? Does he get fired, does he I have nothing HE FFREEEZES TO DEATH IN THE SHOWER may as well
Right no, that would make no sense. Groundhog day is ALWAYS cold water. Duh.
If that song is the theme of this movie I'm quiwait
What the hell is right
It's happening again
IT'S HAPPENING AGAIN
that little sort of "ding ding ding ding" thing is eerie
HAHAHAHHAHA "I could check with the kitchen"
So like it's all happening all over again then!
WHY IS IT CALLED THAT HAHAHAHA
oh no not Ned this is where THERE HE IS
He's just like NOPE no Ned today
They found the world's most annoying man and cast him in this role
Just colossal suck coming back to haunt him
Respect the groundhog, man, or you will never escape
The town won't let him leave, will it? He tried to get out and HAHAHAH
she was pretty happy to oblige
"Derunk's more fun"
So does anyone else notice?
"again" the delivery is just WHY IS IT CALLEDS THAT
It's not a bear, play something else
"THERE WASN'T ONE TODAY" You know at least he catches on quick.
Yeah I figured it would happen again. So this is like a time loop thing
and nothing he does changes and... nobody else notices?
It's just him then?
Yes just try to outrun the day, that will work Phil
Yeah that's the reaction I have too
Well you see he's going through a bit of science fiction right now and it's hard on him
She's got an awesome "you're-a-rectum" look
Yeah she's not a wizard
HAHHAHA ohhhh Phil you share the name with a giant rat
Ah there we go, makes sense IS THAT EGON
Chubby Egon. Man had some good yuears.
This man strikes me as a noodlI HAVE AN ALCOHOLIC NOW like it's this happy little collection
"is that not good" NOODLE\
And how do you know how sea otters do it?
You're sitting here philosophizing swith two small-town drunks. Way to keep yourself happy.
Kind of a slow movie
JUDGMENT BAD. ASSESSMENT FLAWED
Flapjacks are drunk food?
I could see that
NO CONSEQUENCES AND THE MUSIC IS WITH HIM NOW I UNDERSTAND IT ALL
oh shit I want to see where this goes I am so on board with this
HAHAHA he just deked a cop car
I agree with Drunk Number One there
Heeeeeey we're taaaaalkin in heeeeeeere
HAHAHAHA he'll swerve first? Niot likely
Yeah POhil I wouldn't do that it might not reset you if you, you know, die
THREE ORDERS OF FRIES HAHAHAHAHAAH I am so sold on where this movie is now going
still hate that song though
Hehehe he knows it all already AHHAHA and now he's messing with her like he's psychic
"sstate official" mild way of putting it
What happens with Ned
OH FUCKING HELL YUES "NED?" POWWWWW
Ohhhh I would. I would be right there with hijm on that.
"they're not advancing as fast as you think"
AHAHAHAHHAA right out of the pot
the hell did he just eat
It's kind of weird to break out in the middle of conversation
HAHAHA I'll bet it is
I smell a scheme
Oh it's on now isn't it
HE'S DOING THE NED THING
yeah he's so very in
yeah he's so in.
annnnd there we go
Clever bastard, ain't he
So wait he likes Rita?
Cause I've gotta tell you pal, she does not like you
Someone needs some self-esteem
Wow he's got this all choreographed
HE'S GONNA STEAL FROM A BANK
HAHAHA "stand there looking dumb"
"fix your bra"
HAHAHA this is excellent
annnnd he gets himself some wheels
and is now a cowboy
Hehehehe he's having too much fun with this TWO ADULTS you nit
"What are you dying of"
He IS into her
I've never had a conversation like that
POWER OF THE DONUT
Way to put it on the table, guy
I had a good body and I don't really want to look in the mirror right now
Phil you're so transparent
So you're going to Nancy her too?
He disabled the van!
Gonna be some real Wrath of Gozer shit up in here if you keep this sort of thing up, guy
HAHAHA he's just going to reset and fix every time?
Yep. That's the scheme
Must have been hard to reset when acting this
THE BARMAN KNOWS
the barman knows doesn't he someone has to
Wait are other people starting ot notice? She knows they've done some of this before
He's just feeding her all sorts of practiced stuff
Hell of a memory on him
HAHAHAHA and he deploys the French
now see THAT would be a fun date activity
man I hope that one day I can do that with my own LEGS
Snowball fights are so great and they never let us have them
He did it, the cheeky bastard did it
See now this looks like a great date. I'd have ahtat date
I like music like this, you know
Does that make me just a big sap
I thought this would be a bit more madcap
HAHAHAHA don't reveal the trick
I sense bad
I have a bad feeling about this
Don't twist the movie now
Not a joke Phil
TOO FAR PHIL
See there's a point where you are just a stalker and you CROSSED THAT LINE A LONG TIME AHGO SIR
yeah she's not Nancy, moron
Ohhhh this hurts to watch
Ohhhhh god I don't like this
That I believe
I think you deserved that one
Seriously we're trying again already?
This is no less creepy Phil
He sounds desperate now
THE FUCK "are any of you up for adoption"
No sir you went waaaaaaaaaaaaay too far
FESTIVAL OF SLAPS
My art teacher was an ice sculptor, I never understood how you pull that off with a chainsaw
Wow yeah he looks like someone punched him in the soul
DRAMATIC MINUTE TICK
I find it hard to pity you
I know neither of these answers
HAHAHA literally just fucking with them now
Oh well now he's out on the other side THEY USED TO EEEAT IT
How long has he been through the loop though
Oh he's going off the reservation isn't he
HE MUST BE STOPPED
Way to not sound like a nutbar, guy
She doesn't even know what you're talking about
HE JUST SMILED AT ME you're all insane in your own ways, you know that?
GRAND THEFT HOG
HAHAHAHAHA Larry you've got a filthy mind
Larry your enthusiasim is delightfully warped
AHAHAHAHAHA technically Phil IS driving...
Don't drive crazy either, Phil.s. Phils
Love that guy's voice it's just so wacky
I want a top hat now WHAT IS HE DOING
HE'S GONNA RAM THROUGH
GET OUT OF THE WAY
Rita's like "the fuck?"
You look so gone,m fella
Okay so he can't die his way out of it either?
Bread yes I would like all of the bread
HOW LONG HAS THIS BEEN HAPPENING
ohgod that's chilling
WOULD LIKE THIS TO STOP NOW PLEASE
I'm really hoping that when we come back this whole thing will just not happen.
I\M A GOD. Not The god, though.
"this sounds like a personal conversation, I';m just gonna come back..."
Hehe poor Doris
This is a cool idea actually
He really DOES know everything by now, doesn't he
MAKES CHIPMUNK NOISES hahahahaha
He knoiws waaaaaaaaaaaaay too much about you tell you what lady
That does seem pretty godlike
must be so weird, though, since from her point of reference they just came from a Feb 1st where they weren't in Stupid Town Name
oh this is new and I'm very on board
Excellent emmory though
So this is it?
They fall for each other over the time loop?
Bet she gets trapped with him
BE THE HAT
oh god he practiced card flips for six months?
Yeah, yeah he is
They make me smile. Which is odd.
She LIKES him
she LIKES the crazy omniscent jerk
HAHAHA she's fun I like her
Will she get trapped too? Is it like a bubble around him?
he does have this phenomenal memory capacity,. Roomie's like that, remembers everything ever
Only god can make a tree.
The music's not... GOOD... but it works? I think?
How much can you know anyone from just one day, though? Even if it is repeated a thousand times?
Look he's becoming a real person
She's still there right?
HAHA the old man's like WHAT
He's just going to be a fuly decent person for a day isn't he
LEt's see it then
Maybe this will free him
See that's the thing to do. LEARN
Become like... man-god. Thing. Max your skill ranks.
For instance, Perform
HAHAHHA persuasion much
WELL THAT WAS RTUDE
Poor girl's like "the hell, everyone?"
There's that poetry going
Hehehe he just looks so HAPPY
Yeah I'm, with you piano lady.
THAT is where you invested your skill ranks? You're insane
Piano yes, Ice sculpting hell no
