New podcast today! Extra Hot Great #8: A Gypsy, a Tramp, and a Thief. (Yes, by the image on the EHG site, I guess that makes me the tramp. I can live with that.)
Among other things (Burlesque, Buffy fans, font-based wordplay), we get caught up in a discussion of Clone High, the late, lamented MTV animated show about a school full of sexy teen clones of famous historical figures. It's pretty tough to find on DVD -- I believe I had to try Amazon.ca (and thank Christ that overrated sourpuss Ramona Flowers didn't rollerblade her ass on over to my place to deliver it) to find it. But it's so completely worth it -- 13 episodes of hilarity, just waiting for you.
Anyhoo, I found out something else today as I was YouTubing for Clone High clips: the theme song -- one of the best, hookiest TV themes ever -- was sung by the band Abandoned Pools. Who I totally saw in concert once, even though I had no idea who they were, as they were opening for Flickerstick, a.k.a. the winners of the VH1 reality show Bands on the Run, which was another phenomenal TV show from the early-2000s that only lasted one perfect season!
The world is an amazing place sometimes...
