While Supplies Last, Eh

Ryan Reynolds IS BillyWe’re still getting things settled around here in the new BAMF digs, but this post is time-sensitive, so I’m putting it up now. The excellent Youtube channel Squidjib recently started a Rifftrax/MST3K-style show about a terrible Canadian teen melodrama that was very popular on Nickelodeon when I was a wee lad. I hesitate to mention the name of the show, because all of the series’ previous videos (which were hilarious) were taken down by the rights owners of the teen show. I was very angry with myself for not having the foresight to download the episodes, since I figured they didn’t get permission from the rights owners. I’m hoping that eventually they are able to upload the previous 5 episodes somewhere.

Squidjib generously put up thier final (now lone) episode last week, which will probably get them slapped with another takedown notice any day now. Enjoy while it lasts; the Canadian accents and horrific 90’s fashion staples are abundant! Also bonus child actor Ryan Reynolds as Billy, a drummer so bad that it made his parents get divorced!

You may also know Squidjib from their Drinking with Goosebumps video series. I wasn’t particularly interested in this at first because I was too old to ever get into that book series, let alone the show. But truthfully my angst began at my first job in a bookstore as a teen, where this one portly kid would buy every new Goosebumps book on its release day and pay in fucking pennies. So I would have to wander back to the stockroom, find the latest Scholastic shipment, pull out the books, add them to the system, and re-count his sweaty pile of 500+ coins. I learned to hate R.L. Stine very quickly.

Where was I? Oh, right. While going through Canuck withdrawls I decided to give Drinking with Goosebumps a shot and was very pleasantly surprised at how funny these guys are. Also, I wholeheartedly agree with Jason’s review of the Final Fantasy 7 Remake. Give them a shot. Or don’t, I’m not your dad.
