Did you see that Richard Day and Mitchell Hurtwitz are working on a pilot?

What a weird cast!

Gene Gene the Dancing Machine lost his legs to diabetes. I'd happily forgo the sublime magic if it entails such a tragic coda.

Dear The Stranger:

I love the idea of a Gong Show. I loved the Gong Show as a kid. And I have an idea.

If the Stranger's Gong Show is a success, perhaps you'd consider adding to HUMP something I saw once in San Francisco: and XXX Gong Show. It was one of the most amazing, hot, and hillarious things I've ever seen. Imagine the naked scene from Borat, but for two hours, with like 20 people, but funnier. It was great.

It's just an idea, but a worthy one, I fee.

i just learned of this sad news regarding gene, gene the dancing machine's legs via the slog. man, talk about some cruel injustice.

we will be pouring out a little liquor for gene's legs at the crocodile. unless, of course, meinert manages to get to the bottle first (highly likely).

Kerri, you can see Gene interviewed (briefly) in "Confessions of a Dangerous Mind" -- rent the DVD, there's a bit about him in the added features, and Clooney talks about it in the movie commentary.
