Chris Eldin said...

Well, no writing or toying with words in this one...
:-)

Chris Eldin said...

YoooooHoooooo!
Wheeeeerrreee are youuuuu?
:-)

_*Rachel*_ said...

Any bets on what he'll sing? I'm betting it'll be a popular song with new, book-themed lyrics.

Chris Eldin said...

Rachel, I'm sure it will be a song dedicated to his minions....
;-)

Robin S. said...

DAMN. I missed soooooo much, didn't I?

Robin S. said...

EE, are you there`/ I'm only gonna be up for a few more minutes...

Robin S. said...

well hell. can't believe I never got a chance to say hi.

good night, then.

Evil Editor said...

Sorry. If I hadn't had to spend half an hour putting together a karaoke deal I'd have been here.

Dave F. said...

Karaoke? By a strange coincidence of fate that great, award winning movie "Can't Stop The Music" was screened on channel 148 - The "FUSE" network. It starred Valery Perine and her two friends, (D) and (D)...
The Village People doing what they do best - mindnumbing DISCO with plenty of pelvic bumps and grinds.
You might also remember that it was the beginning and end of Bruce Davidson's career. He returned to being an unknown athlete with an Olympic Medal.

It's rumored that EE was the sixth Villager dressed in a longcoat, spiked cowboy boots, diamond studded jockstrap of rich Corinthian leather, and nipple tassels.

So can someone convince EE top do the minion version of "YMCA," or better yet, "IN THE NAVY" ...

Or am I too late???

Anonymous said...

A++ for effort on that "song". Did I miss the part where you dedicate it to your loyal minions???

Meri

BuffySquirrel said...

Umm, don't give up the day job! lol

ril said...

Of course, I got to sleep through all of the fun. Now, where's that karaoke...?

Evil Editor said...

I won't. I've been in living situations where I was not allowed to sing. House rule. Whoever came up with this idea is the type who tunes in the early American Idol season to see the bad singers who don't make the actual show.

Chumplet - Sandra Cormier said...

I just had a crazy half-day at work and then drove three hours picking my daughter up from college, so I missed most of the comments. Whew!

Sooo.... What'd I miss?

Evil Editor said...

Nothing.

Chumplet - Sandra Cormier said...

Awwwww, EE, you don't give yourself enough credit.

Not.

Did I say that out loud? Sorry, I thought this was a roast.

Phoenix said...

OMG. An EE film with music NOT by Kevin McLeod. Is that allowed? Really?

ril said...

Well, the credits were longer than the movie, but it was worth going over there.

You've got quite the Tom Waits thing going there -- how many packs a day?

Phoenix said...

Sorry, I had to go back and listen to that a second time. Yeah. Just like the American Idol outtakes.

(Gotta figure out where you're getting that voice filter. I bet you're really a tenor.)

Phoenix said...

Hey ril, you woke up. Comments are finally appearing again on the BlogEEversary blog!

ril said...

Yeah, time zones suck, don't they?

ril said...

I liked it better back when the world was flat...

Evil Editor said...

I'd like to thank everyone who participated in any way in setting up or attending this event.

Evil Editor said...

There haven't been enough comments on the Grisham film. Are people just not commenting, or are they not seeing it?

Dave F. said...

I almost missed the Grisham film early this morning. It's like an episode of The Twilight Zone...

ril said...

I've published everything that anyone left.

Actually I'm expecting to hear from his laywers soon. No, wait -- he is a laywer. So I guess he'll be calling me direct...

Phoenix said...

When I have to have meetings at 6 am or 11 pm with work colleagues in India or New Zealand or, um, Japan, then yeah, time zones suck big time!

Chumplet - Sandra Cormier said...

I have to hunt around to find the link since I was so late

Phoenix said...

Ril, the Grisham interview was worth the price of admission. You ROCK! Whoever pegged you as "Son of EE" was dead on ;o)

Whirlochre said...

Is 7.52 live or have I missed the boat?

No idea what time zone this is.

Whirlochre said...

7.54 — instantly reveals self as imbecile.

ril said...

Don't worry -- you're in good company...

Whirlochre said...

Hi Ril.

Just catching up.

Excellent trib blog btw — especially the links, some of which I tried.

Phoenix said...

Ril: Marvelous, delicious anniversary blog!

Chris: Thanks for the Book Roast space where we could hang.

Robin: Thanks for being the BEST party planner around.

EE: Thanks for being the patient, entertaining guy you are, and for hanging in there 3 long years. Here's to Year #4!

Gotta run...

ril said...

We aim to give value for money...

Evil Editor said...

Bye Phoen

Evil Editor said...

Brutal Unix. I just got it.

ril said...

Geek humour...

Whirlochre said...

So what's in store for year 4, EE?

Evil Editor said...

I think the minions should start drawing the cartoons and I'll do the captions.

ril said...

That might be fun as a one time exercise, but I don't think we have your artistic talent...

Whirlochre said...

Sounds like Peanuts has had it as top dog...

Evil Editor said...

If I had any talent I wouldn't be trying to get you to do it.

ril said...

Well, we don't have access to your vast well of clip art either, then... Plus, it's just easier all round to ride in on your coat-tails.

Whirlochre said...

The Evil Ads were fun. I enjoyed waking up to those — if that doesn't make me sound too much of a weirdo.

ril said...

No... That doesn't...

Chumplet - Sandra Cormier said...

I saw the Grisham film, but I'm commenting here.

Great Editing, Editor!

Whirlochre said...

Phew. Must be a guy thing.

Evil Editor said...

I ran out of ad ideas. And I didn't want to open it to everyone because then I might have felt I had to post even the crappy ones.

ril said...

It's always better to quit while you're ahead...






Jeez, don't quit though -- that's not what I meant...

Evil Editor said...

Possibly new blood can be pumped in after a layoff.

Whirlochre said...

No disrespect, but some of those ads were great without the captions — like a portfolio of images from the Academy of Bizarre Grinning.

Chumplet - Sandra Cormier said...

Hey! Ril did the Grisham thing, and I gave EE credit. Figures.

ril said...

That's what I thought...


;)

Whirlochre said...

It's an authoritative interviewing style — getting your guest to say exactly what you want (like Wogan didn't with George Best).

Evil Editor said...

If there were no EE there'd have been no Grisham film. I deserve the credit.

ril said...

Grish was a true gentleman through the entire process.

Chumplet - Sandra Cormier said...

See? EE gets credit even when he's not looking for it!

Or... was he? Only the middle aged Canuck knows for sure.

ril said...

Whirlochre said...

I wonder — when Grisham The Movie (That Grips Like No-one) comes out, who will play EE?

ril said...

Morgan Freeman. No one else could pull it off.

Evil Editor said...

Wilfred Brimley.

Evil Editor said...

Assuming he's dead. Otherwise, yes, Freeman.

Whirlochre said...

Morgan Freeman with stick-on muttonchops?

It's a winner.

ril said...

Okay, now I have to go look up who Wilfred Brimley is...

Evil Editor said...

I think he was in one of the Grisham movies. Also Absence of Malice. But most notably, oatmeal commercials.

Whirlochre said...

Just googled Brimley — it's Freeman with a stick-on mustache.

Chumplet - Sandra Cormier said...

I was thinking of Wilfred Brimley, but I also thought of Charles Cyphers from Major League.

ril said...

That's OK then, 'cause I seemed to remember a friend of my mother's who I was supposed to call Uncle Wilf.

Evil Editor said...

The Firm was his Grisham movie. He plays the same character in everything. A wise old man.

Chumplet - Sandra Cormier said...

Was the friend of your mom's a man or a woman? That's important.

Evil Editor said...

Even when he was young he played a wise old man.

ril said...

I see. But Freeman has played God twice, so less of a stretch...

Chumplet - Sandra Cormier said...

Oh, Wilf was in The Natural. Got my baseball movies mixed up.

Whirlochre said...

Was The Firm the one with Tom Cruise and the ugly guys at the end?

And what about Gene Hackman for EE?

Evil Editor said...

I feel like Whirl should be asleep and ril should be at work. What time is it?

ril said...

Gene Hackman's more the ruthless vigilante sorcerer type...

Evil Editor said...

Was he a wise old man in The Natural?

Chumplet - Sandra Cormier said...

I'm awake and that's all that matters.

ril said...

It's 9:30am here. And you're right.

Whirlochre said...

Very late. But I'm not long in and have to wait a while before the sedatives take hold.

Whirlochre said...

I love that Hackman film about the paranoid cop with the sax.

Chumplet - Sandra Cormier said...

Yes, he was a wise old man in The Natural.

Evil Editor said...

It's almost time for Hell's Kitchen here.

Evil Editor said...

All Hackman films are great.

ril said...

Well, we can't compete with Ramsay.

They don't show that over here...

Chumplet - Sandra Cormier said...

We know that's your fav, but I'm watching hockey. We'll have to break for 30 Rock.

Whirlochre said...

Sadly in the UK, GR has been replaced by Marco Pierre White — infinitely more sinister, but a bit of a ham.

Last night he freaked some girly celebs out by butchering live crayfish.

Evil Editor said...

What are you doing over there, anyway?

Whirlochre said...

Loved GH in The Unforgiven. Such menace.

Chumplet - Sandra Cormier said...

EE loves to hear Ramsay bleep. Just so ya know, they don't bleep the hockey players.

ril said...

Didn't MPW do the irascible chef bit when Ramsay was still kicking bags of wind around a field?

Evil Editor said...

Replaced? I see him on BBC America. Maybe those are reruns.

ril said...

What are you doing over there, anyway?In what sense?

Chumplet - Sandra Cormier said...

In Canader we get the best of both worlds - Ramsay and White. I like Kitchen Nightmares.

Evil Editor said...

Are you there permanently or just until they get sick of you?

Whirlochre said...

The latest MPW is on ITV — which you can view on the ITV version of BBC iPlayer — though I'd stick with Ramsay.

ril said...

It's "indefinitely" -- until "career progression" takes me somewhere else.

I came over here to work on a project, and never went home.

ril said...

BBC iPlayer tells you to sod off if you're not in Britain.

Chumplet - Sandra Cormier said...

My dad went to Algeria for six months and stayed seven years.

Evil Editor said...

A project like the Big Dig.

Chumplet - Sandra Cormier said...

No, he wasn't in prison.

Whirlochre said...

Typical of the BBC.

As for Albania — their national costume incorporates some dinky bootees if I remember right.

Evil Editor said...

It's hard to get a flight out of Algeria.

ril said...

Not quite. There have been other projects since (one's four now, the other's nearly five months).

Evil Editor said...

Since the city is Algiers, why isn't the country Algieria?

Whirlochre said...

OK, it's snooze time.

Congratulations on 3 years, EE, and hearty cheers to one and all.

"On the morrow," as they say in all unwatchable fantasy flicks...

Evil Editor said...

Whirl, were you among the group meeting in London and going to the fair?

Evil Editor said...

Seeyoutomorrow.

ril said...

I have to buckle down to some real work, too. Have a good night!

Chumplet - Sandra Cormier said...

He was in Oran. If the city is Ottawa, why isn't the country Ottawawa?

Evil Editor said...

I gotta go prepare for HK. I watch in the kitchen and try to make Beef Wellington.

ril said...

I just wear galoshes.

G'Night.

Chumplet - Sandra Cormier said...

However, a suburb of Ottawa is Kanata, which was supposed to be the original name for Canada. I think...

Evil Editor said...

Okay, Chum, looks like it's dwindling down to nothingness.

Chumplet - Sandra Cormier said...

I'm talking to myself, right?

Evil Editor said...

Good Nite all.

_*Rachel*_ said...

Such a manly voice!

I did love the Brutal Unix. The more, the better!

EE should be played by Gene Wilder, crossed with Moe, Larry, and Curly. Gene Wilder just 'cause, Moe for his personality, Larry because... just 'cause he has to be there, and Curly for size.

EST here.

Chumplet - Sandra Cormier said...

Okay, EE. Enjoy HK. Happy Anniversary!

Evil Editor said...

Thanks. Till next year.

_*Rachel*_ said...

A bientot, bedtime!

My most hearty congrats, EE, as well as thanks.

*bows out of the room*

Chris Eldin said...

OMG! I fell asleep!!!

It's 5:30 am here, and I clicked on the karoake, and couldn't turn the volume down in time.....Not that this wasn't enjoyable at full volume at 5:30 in the morning...
:-)


EE, thank you so much. You are a true blue sweetheart!!!
:-)

Chumplet - Sandra Cormier said...

Chris, you're a real trooper for hanging in there on the other side of the world. When are you coming home?

Chris Eldin said...

Hi Chumplet,

May 5! YAY!!
:-)

I'm so happy to see you over here! It's been a long time!!
:-)

Chumplet - Sandra Cormier said...

I've been such a slacker lately.

Sarah Laurenson said...

Finally catching up and everyone's off to bed (or just out of it). Great work on the T&D!

And Happy, Happy Blogiversary, EE!

Robin S. said...

Do you know how many times I ran back from pubs and lunch stuff and all kinds of things- and only after i passed out cold did you all start with the bantering?! Hmmmmph.

I\m gonna go listen to the EE singing thing, and hope that assuages my pain.

sylvia said...

Ooops. I thought I'd try to rehydrate using beer and I ended up at the pub until the early hours. Now back and very hungover. The karaoke did not do much to improve this!
