"What's in Your Trunk?" - Part Deux

A word of advice - the whole thing was too big to fit on one posting, so I had to break it up into two parts. When you try to play each part, click "play" and once it starts loading, click "pause" until the entire episode has loaded (you'll see the bar down at the bottom will change from light gray to dark gray (or possibly to red) incrementally, as it loads). Then, when it's fully loaded, click play again and you'll be able to see the whole part uninterrupted. Also, you can load both postings simultaneously, which will take you a little longer but they'll be available to watch one right after the other...

Also, if you still have trouble loading them from the blog, you can go to YouTube directly at the link provided; just copy & paste it into your browser:

DiSalvo gets his revenge!

Okay, I may make mom jokes and hit on 3 yr. olds, but Richard drinks blue drinks!


And while we're at it, let's take an early look at what will eventually become a male nurse...

As if we haven't been travelling enough...


Taken just moments before Kevin was nearly disqualified in the warm-up lap, Angry go-kart drivers (left to right) Benim, Kevin, Timmy and Mike B. all are thinking victory in Tempe. Only Timmy was correct.

First Day in Toronto, eh?

Yes, it's the first day in Canada, the first day of 2008, and the first day that we actually get to hear Alan Mandell speak in his native Canadian accent (or do they all sound like recent British emigrés here)? Alan will also be giving a demonstration of the proper way to do a full hockey body slam. "Crusher," they called him on the ice.

Having checked into the Delta Chelsea, we have all gone our separate ways to explore the environs. We're next to several bars, which should please Tom Gebbia. And across the street from Zanzibar where "The girls never stop!" Exactly what it is they continue doing remains to be seen, but I'm sure Mike Boland will give us a full account. And the warmer weather will doubtless have Tony Ward dodging moosepoop on his runs around town. Charles Borland meanwhile is in hiding as he finishes his thesis, "The Origins of World War I, or Vas Iss All Dis Noise?" David Lively has scouted his fresh nighttime feedings. And Benim is apparently far more versed in Français than I ever knew...

More to come...

This guy covered Alan?

John and An made him wear the proper costume and greyed his hair, but THIS is how he really sees #9.

The winners get their prizes!

It was a good round of contests - prizes were promised and awarded last night - here are the acceptees (in no particular order):

Amy White accepted a Bonsai Potato for her father's winning contribution of haikus,

Charles Borland got a collection of Bushisms for his award-winning "What the @%$#*&!?" moment,

and Mark Morettini gleefully accepted his award of a mini-martini set for his stunning Photo of the Week!

Congratulations to all!

One wint'ry day in Windsor...

Jeffrey, Mark, Megan, and Todd just wanted a cuppa Canuk cafe...

But Teddy had other things in mind...

All alone, he waited for his light...

And then the magic began...

Oh Teddy, you saucy lad...

Miss Cheetah, the dreams you can make a young bear dream...

Photo of the week is...

Mark Morettini's composition, retitled, "Why Kidzbop has a curfew..."

Memorable "What the ^&($%?" moments of the week

Runners up include:

Richard's Mickey Mouse voice on Wednesday's "I thought you were all supposed to be convincing, me..."

Kevin's careful reconsideration on "Did or didn't the woman see the kid kill...at 12:10, or 10:15, or 12, 10...Didn't she? Or did she?"

Jeffrey's "Don't you think those motives were a bea-...?! Uh,...those beatings were a motive...?"

But the WINNER is Charles' pistachio-impeded, "Not......Not......Not......guilty..."

Congratulations & thank you all for playing!

And the winner is...

I know you were all eagerly awaiting the results of the submissions for our haiku contest.

"The Jury Box gives
shelter from dull downpour of
Dearborn tedium."
- Todd Cerveris


"twelve men in a room
why oh why do they yell so?
oh god, the fighting!"
- Mike DiSalvo


"An unseen bullfrog
plops into the play - Prosky
I'm angry again"
- Richard Thomas


"and I spent two days
writing a detroit haiku
but had the form wrong"
- Allen McCullough


But I think the winner, hands down, if only by dint of volume, is the submission of Amy's dad - a haiku for each and every one of us!

"Hail to Mike Boland
First in all the cast he is,
Juror number one

Who's Todd Cerveris?
Why can't you see so plain, he's
Juror number two

Julian Gamble
A consummate thespian
Juror number three

Juror number four
Needs a special guy, so call
On Jeff Heyenga

Moving on, we see
There, as juror number five,
Great Tom Gebbia

Handsome Charles Borland!
Loud applause for his role as
Juror number six

Number seven is
Lucky for some, such as our
Mark Morettini

Juror number eight
Needs quiet heroism.
It's Richard Thomas!

Then Alan Mandel
We all know is known to all:
Juror number nine

Which juror's next? Ten.
A grade that's top, A +.
Call Kevin Dobson

Eleven’s accent,
Tried and true. It needs a mensch.
Hence, David Lively

Call on Tony Ward;
Fills the bill and jury box
These silly musings

No, wait, it's not done!
We need a Mike Disilva
To get in and out

Jeff, Dave, Alan too
Relax, you're backed really well:
Stephen Bradbury

Our Benim Foster
Understudy exemplar
But are four enough?

Allen McCullough
One, three nine and ten and guard
We think that’s enough.

Old pro calling shows,
John Galo does it better
The trick? Cast and crew.

Lovely Megan Schneid,
Is now winning life's roulette
With lucky seven

Ah, now, An Trimble
Keep us in stitches, betimes,
'Though you're short an "N."

This light never fails:
Ger Sweitzer is now plugged in
See him for limelight

Eh? What's that you said?
If you're not hearing quite right
Call Timmy Schmidt fast

Gardiner Frascia,
Listen now, it's up to you -
Keep jury box full!

Who needs a mascot?
Angry men, to soothe.
Norman fills the bill

Can Reginald Rose
E're top this magnum opus?
Of course not. He's dead.

Scott Ellis is tops
At telling us what to do
At least he thinks so

'Get on the bus now!’
Exasperation showing,
Amy taps her foot.

Detroit, Michigan
One more week, then we all go
On a break. Thank God."

Angry Quote of the Day

From Richard:

"Detroit is like Cleveland without the glitter." - Anonymous.

From Morettini

Who knew "flershin" was a word?

This way madness lies

"You people bore me"

Gardner prepares for his piercing

Jury Box carnage

Some men were meant not to dance

"Beer? Beer? What is this thing you speak of?"

I present to you - the newest Edna Turnblad...

From one angry man to one hot lady!


Hello from Michael McEowen

Hey 12 Angriest! and Megan, the least Angry.


MMSM from Des Moines with Camelsnot! Sitting in my little office watching the lava lamp perambulating, while waiting for the backstage tour I am doing this afternoon, just before the mini-put in for a poorly cast Merlyn. Should be a fine time. Nice house for a barn, nice hotel down the street that is in the midst of renovation. Des Moines downtown is dead! The other day I counted 12 people on the "busy" intersection downtown.

Lou Diamond Phillips is our headliner. Not a great singer, but does well in the talk-sing role and provides a great deal of energy onstage. A big poker player, buys a lot of drinks and is fun to be around, what could be finer? I think, no I know that our show gets much darker than your show, even when your storm comes! The other night, the calling SM disappeared in the dry ice fog! The hose didn't get placed correctly and he got fogged! We held the curtain for a tornado in Louisville last week, very exciting!

Wish I were still with the Angry Men, but it all came down to the almighty dollar and some perks that were worth a few more Washingtons. E. Lansing next, then Buffalo, Turkey Day in Cincy,(some of the cooking provided by Lou), then Hershey before a 6 week lay off.
(I think the show may close after that, but no one is saying that outloud, yet).

MMSM, down the road.

God Bless Our Boland


Mike Boland defending the Alamo against the women and children who storm it every day in downtown San Antonio. Actually, Mike was surprised to find out that the Alamo was NOT where David Bowie recorded his albums, but where Jim Bowie defended the former mission and lost his life to General Santa Anna's army. Now it all makes sense to him.

San Antonio recap by Allen

They put their mark on San Antonio...


And then enjoyed a restful day off..


Napping on the plane...

Hey all:

Wish that I had not been sucessfully wined and dined by the Camelot folk. This one is not as fun as that one!
