    For Python freaks in Canuckistan, Bravo is showing Monty Python: Almost the Truth over three nights beginning Saturday. The shows will be followed by And Now For Something Completely Different (Saturday) and Meaning Of Life (Sunday).

    Its been on IFC here all week. Interesting, though it's disjointed, and I haven't heard much I didn't already know.

    Thanks for the heads-up. It'll be an alternative to watching the Leafs.

    And one of my all time favs, The Travel Agent was on while I drove over to McDonald's

    And then some adenoidal typists from Birmingham with flabby white legs and diarrhoea trying to pick up hairy bandy-legged wop waiters called Manuel and once a week there's an excursion to the local Roman Remains to buy cherryade and melted ice cream and bleeding Watney's Red Barrel and one evening you visit the so called typical restaurant with local colour and atmosphere and you sit next to a party from Rhyl who keep singing "Torremolinos, torremolinos" and complaining about the food - "It's so greasy isn't it?" - and you get cornered by some drunken greengrocer from Luton with an Instamatic camera and Dr. Scholl sandals and last Tuesday's Daily Express and he drones on and on about how Mr. Smith should be running this country and how many languages Enoch Powell can speak and then he throws up over the Cuba Libres.

    "Drunken Greengrocer from Luton" always makes me laugh.

    Reading that does not do justice to Michael Palin's brilliant delivery.

    And remember the swimming pools are full of fat German businessmen forming pyramids and frightening the children.

    Maybe this will help.

    I heard that one the other night. "He's been scouring the outskirts of Lisbon, but little could he know his target is 1,500 miles away."

    The documentary series has been interesting, but as Bubbler said, not anything too new or revealing so far. The radio station (running another week or so, I think) has been fantastic and reminded me of some classic stuff I'd forgotten. My brother and I had the "Contractual Obligation Album" on cassette and wore the thing out.

    I remember repeatedly going into hysterics over "Farewell to John Denver":

    I've been listening on Sirius, but it just isn't translating well for me. I love Monty Python's work, I really do. But because the recording quality isn't that good and I've got to focus on driving, it's easy to miss things. The troupe's work is simply brilliant, but it's been tough to listen to. I've been thinking, "what have I missed?," then I miss another brilliant nugget.
