Wait, granny panties? As in, female panties? I assumed the third person was actually a guy. Sean thought the same thing. I guess the last sentence makes more sense, I was all "what do you mean, the J isn't for judgment, you mean you're not going to judge yourself for having sex with guys? That's kind of weird"
But was it supposed to be a third female who was wearing different underwear? That changes things a bit. I thought he was so drunk he didn't realise the third one was a guy and assumed it was a third female.

I thought they were meant to be male undergarments, too, if only because of the stark contrast with the other undergarments.

ETA: Looking at them properly, I can see what they actually are, but that wasn't my first thought at all.

I think having a male lying down behind him helped the mental connection too. Also I didn't realise he was supposed to still be at the party, since he said they came home with him, so I assumed he was home.

I can kind of see Jonny as a spiritual successor to Story Guy, in fact I kind of like the notion that Jonny is like Story Guy's second third cousin twice removed, some kind of distant relation to him that, honestly, only Story Guy could reasonably quantify but if presented with him Jonny would instantly recognise Story Guy.

"Yo! My man, S-Gee! It's been, like, forever dude, how's the haps 'n all that?"
"Well I recall the last time we met was at the family reunion in Mozambique, do you recall the tiki statue incident at all?"

When I saw Matt there I thought "wait he wasnt in the video, or the credits" so I had to re watch it, and NO, no Matt. I wonder how often Matt is working in the background uncredited.

This was cool, I've always enjoyed the little glimpses into the processes you guys go through. I am a little curious though, why is it being hosted via blip instead of the E?

Bill is just there because it's someone snuggling with Paul, therefore I can imagine it's me. I'd rather have a video of me snuggling with Paul but I don't have one, and when I call to ask him to shoot one he threatens to call the police.

Ah! Because The E is not paying us to do this series. This is something we wanted to do ourselves, but also wanted to show as many people as we could. So we said The E could show it for free, if they used our viewer so we'd get our ad revenue.
Boom. Simple.

For sure!
I'm betting we'll touch on every minuscule aspect of our setup, now that this is a weekly affair.

I still think they're male undergarments, and I've even seen the Loading Time. :P

That dolly rig is a lot nicer than the one I made out of PVC piping and skateboard wheels.

I've touched the original dolly, didn't feel like PVC pipes to me.

Who says I was talking about LRR's dolly? I've been hiding in Sloth's crawl space for two weeks now.

I don't have the heart to tell him I moved out of there years ago. I hope he's enjoying the Virginia weather and my weird filmmaking college housemates.

Random techie question (out of sheer curiousity more than anything)...

Was that a digi-cam you guys were recording with or am I just going completely round the twist? If so, why a digi-cam over a "standard video camera"?

Awesome vid though. Hope you guys do more of 'em. It's always fun to see the behind-the-scenes stuff.

I love that there's a dedicated "goggles" drawer.
