Snake Oil
August 20th, 2012

Posted by Kathleen

May I interest you in some bona-fide sketch comedy? It’s guaranteed to put a spring in your jimmies and get your veins and arteries free of hex weevils, the leading cause of Wilson’s Croop.*

Here are Monday’s videos!

LoadingReadyRun: Snake Oil
Unskippable: Trapt
Checkpoint: Almost No Odd Job

Unlike last week, where the video was filmed only at great expense to our blood, this week’s video was a much higher production job with budgeting for real props and costumes. How fancy and unlike us! We’ll cover the production and filming process for Snake Oil in this week’s upcoming Loading Time, but if you have any questions about the video, be sure to leave them in the comments so I can make sure they get addressed in the Escapist news post that will accompany the video.

Also new this week is… me! Today marks the beginning of my stint at the helm of the U.S.S LRRBlog, displacing Matt and finally ending his reign of Pony-based terror. Just kidding — as many of you know he’s off to do his Masters degree in Vancouver. In his absence I’m stepping up to the plate, but Matt, we are all going to miss you for these 16 months.

But what does this change mean for you, gentle reader? Well… not much, but here are four things you may want to look out for!

1. All My Little Pony memes to be replaced with Jerk City** comics.

2. A more flamboyant writing style heavily influenced by a lifetime of wanting to be Douglas Adams.

3. 28 percent more references to cats.

4. ***

*Results not even a little guaranteed. 

**Really NSFW, ridiculous, offensive, sometimes transcendently funny. 

***Lots more footnotes.



    Oh, it was only the one time.

  2. Wait, the blog post is actually on Monday? A new era LRR blog-dom has arrived! All hail the new, punctual queen!

    Just kidding Matt! Good luck with the Master’s, and I look forward to the day you once again rule over the LRRBlog with an iron hoof.

  3. I thought the *** was a three letter word :(

  4. As I too have spent a lifetime wanting to be Douglas Adams, I wholeheartedly approve.

  5. Only 28% more references to cats? I have waited a long time for Kathleen to take over this blog, and I Demand More Cats!

    Kathleen/AdorableBabyKitties 2012!

  6. Good luck with your Master’s Matt! We hope to see you sporadically until these 16 months are up!

  7. PERFECT. I’ve been suffering from Wilson’s Croop all my life, and didn’t even know it! I’ll take five.

    Like Yax, I too have spent a lifetime wanting to be Douglas Adams. Approved!

  8. I’m cool with this; bon chance Matt and may much success be yours! Also, I, for one, welcome our new cat-loving overlord (overlady?), etc. etc.

    *goes off to check out Jerk City™ based on K’s description*
