Why Montgomery Needs Mullins

Back in the day, me and the Mullins talked about creating a local advertising company. The idea was that local markets continuously have the worst possible commercials. We figured with a little cash we could do so much better.

Well, after watching this Montgomery commercial, I think a blind, retarded squirrel could do better.

and thats the LONG version! We dont see that one on TV, youtube only

Mat said...

Yeah, I couldn't make it through the whole thing it was so long and obnoxious.

midnitcafe said...

Unrelated, but anyone else use last.fm? Cool little social networking site for music. You can also download a little add on that tracks the music you listen to.

Might be fun to have a cafe group to see what we are all listening to.

Ryan F. said...

So what's that place like?

CL said...

Hey, its not funny. That guy is the new worship leader at my church. Whoo!
More on the unrelated, I'm in Mat.

Jazz said...

the flea market? ive been there.. it is as tacky as youd expect. the commercial cost more than the revenue id imagine

mullinz8 said...

Jamison, that’s the circle of life in broadcasting. Your income sucks because no one comes to your shop. You spend some cash (from the looks of it, not much) and your name gets out, suddenly you’re still broke because people drive by and just laugh.

Maybe that’s not what’s supposed to happen, obviously it’s gonna with this guy.

CL (when did you FU?) I’m glad you know this guy and I’m glad to know he goes to church because I would hate to think someone was this high on their own with no one to turn to when he comes down.

CL said...

Mullins, you don't remember? I thought we were best friends, I have officially begun the wailing process.

OK. 94-96

Jazz said...

Mulls, he was one of us zeta guy, came in our year... yall paths never crossed id imagine...

Ryan F. said...

Jamison, I was kidding. What's this place like? ANSWER: "It's just like, it's just like, it's just like a mini-mall." Get it? I guess you had to be here.

CL said...

I got it Ryan, quite funny. Must be one of those goofy preacher things. Ha!

Jamison said...

ah, gotcha...
well, i tmust be a wonderful place, the guy's eyes are popping out of their sockets in disbeleif during the whole commercial...

mullinz8 said...

CL perhaps a face to face meeting would clear up any question I have of who you are and if you’re the guy who I let borrow $2.17. Please email me off list so I can tell you the interest you’ve gathered over the years.

The comment I got from someone here, which is the saddest fact, is that someone not only made money shooting the thing but someone else made money recording the silly song.

CL, you’ve gotta tell us if you’ve heard this song blasting through the church parking lot? I have a suspicion that you have.

CL said...

Unfortunately, I haven't heard the song at church. We hired they guy and he qut within a week, something about more money to be made in flea market commercials.
I am pretty sure I am not the guy you loaned the $2.17 to. I usually was the lender not the borrower.
I am tryng to think if we ever did anything in a group together, and I don't think we did.
My only real claim to fame at FU is being Dalva's roomate and the drummer for "Gassy Magnet."
That's all I got!

kellieja said...

Dont feel bad Chris...Matt doesnt remember me either and I had pink hair at one point.

midnitcafe said...

He doesn't remember me either and I carried his child for 6 months.

Jamison said...

Who carried it for the remaining 3?

Ryan F. said...

CL was also best friends with Chris Bartlett. Now let's see if that name rings a bell!

midnitcafe said...

The last three months it was carried in a small leather pouch inside a wine barrel carried by a Croatian mule while roaming the Swiss mountainside.

Jamison said...

Small world, me too! Wait a minute...

Jamison said...

I added a youtube widget to the bottom of the blog, hope thats cool with everyone. Working ont eh stubbs coke documentary. Half way done and am 'ok' impress with my work. it may have to be posted in 3 segments since youtube only allows 10 minute videos.

CL said...

OK I was definitely not best friends with Chris Bartlett, that is funny though!

Jamison said...

Mullins, I hate to use this phrase, I know you hate it, but it WILL help Chris remember you...

Mullins was "The Clown Guy"...

He also directed Kappa's Jamboree show our first year... the acid-trip-esque show...

Jamison said...

I just now read the phrase "a blind, retarded squirrel" in the post...

It just so happens that "blind, retarded squirrels" was the name of my B52's cover band I was in back in '92.

CL said...

Yeah I remember the clown deal. I actually have a pretty good memory of most folks...

midnitcafe said...

That's funny because I was in a Blind Retarded Squirrels cover band. We called ourselves the 52 Groundhogs that Are Actually Quite Intelligent, Thank You

We were huge in Sweden.

I like the office cam. Dig the youtube, though hate the placement. Nobody will ever see it way down there. Although I don't know where you could put it to make it better.

Jamison said...

I know, i tried to put it on the side, but it is too big, i may be able to find a thinner one

Jamison said...

someone left a comment on this video:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w7gr1rC1mpQ

saying "A toast to the good times at the cafe"

Who could it have been? Username is Jamilyn... few would know of the "cafe" name...

midnitcafe said...

No idea who that could be, Jamison. the only Jamie I can think of wouldn't no anything about the cafe.

Chris. Man, I just now figured out what you meant when you said "I'm in." Yeah, I know I'm really slow. I just forgot I had suggested anything.

Do you have a last.fm account? I'm "midnitcafe" on there. It would be fun, but if no one else cares (and they usually don't about these things) then it seems kind of pointless.

Ryan F. said...

Jamilyn is Jamie Cockrell, aka Officer Cockrellie. He is currently working security at Jackson Hospital in Montgomery, and still wigs out to this day when someone starts to clap.

Jamison said...

I know you are joking. that can not be him.

I am sure the clapping thing is still true though.

mullinz8 said...

Who in the world are these people? Officer who wigs out from clapping?

You guys are crazy…

I'm in....codename kellieja

Jamison said...

Jamie got hypnotized to react oddly to clappings. His friends did it to him. Supposedly, they never undid it. It was always fun to clap as you walked by him in the girls lobby.

CL said...

Holy cow! Jamie Cockrell, better known by me and Devin Istre as the "All Purpose Guru." Even wrote a song about him, hey, maybe I'll start a "Magnet" myspace. Kellie, would you help me?

kellieja said...

Sure I would help you!

That is mean about the clapping

midnitcafe said...

I remember we used to have debates over whether the clapping thing was real, or just an elaborate ruse on Jamie's part.

CL said...

I'm not sure, I was never a good judge, but I know that it use to really "freak" him out.

Jamison said...

i have to say, i really like this last.fm player.... its free music to listen to on your pc!
