in___my___eyes @ : ...
Yeah, so I'm doing a presentation on Monty Python and I need to say 10 different things about it/them.
It's probably the only presentation I'll ever get to do and it's been one thing I've always wanted to do but not exactly the kind of presentation I wanted to do.
Anyways, I'm not sure what to write. It's due this Friday [June 17/2005]. I'm not lazy, I can think of these things on my own, but, well, comma, it's Monty Python and I have to present it to people who don't know anything about Monty Python and it's in French so people need to be able to understand this.
Most people don't even understand Monty Python in English!

reader2002 @ : Spamalot won 3 awards (so I was told, I didn't watch the show)!!! Has anyone seen it or at least heard the CD? My daddy got the soundtrack for me and it's practically all I listen to nowadays. I love it! I love all the little Monty Python things throughout it. Like the Fisch Schlapping song, and the off to war bit "I don't know but it's been said! We're off to war we're not yet dead! Become a knight and you'll go far! In suspenders and a bra!". I hope soon they'll make a movie of it for us poor saps who can't get tickets to the show! I'd do almost ANYTHING for tickets to see it!
I was listening to it while doing the dishes today and, of course, dancing like an idiot and my mom came in and I got all embarassed. "Er, how much dancing did you see me doing?" "Not much. Don't worry." Haha...
Anyway, that's enough rambling for now. I just wanted to say that about Spamalot... it makes me so happy... and it just makes me want to... SING!!!!! *no, stop that! stop that singing!* Ohh.... *sniffle*

in___my___eyes @ : Hi, um... I just joined and I don't really know if there's anything I'm supposed to say. But, to be safe, I'll just ramble on about the Pythons.
I first heard about Python from my friends, they'd all seen Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Two of my friends (twins), their mom really liked Python and we had this sort-of school acting group, and we watched an episode of Flying Circus just for, er... I don't remember. So, lots of things in between there. I am almost obsessed with Monty Python. I bought the 14 dvd Flying Circus box set all on my own (some gift certificates), which is pretty good because I don't have a job and I got all the dvd's at once.
I have a random keychain, the glorious foot with a bobby (British police officer, I think that's the name) coming out where the leg would be. You can press the toenails and it says phrases. Sadly, all John Cleese and Graham Chapman ones, where they insult people. There's one of Eric Idle, also insulting someone. I was just disappointed that it was mostly John and Graham.
I was reading The Pythons Autobiography By The Pythons, but I haven't read it in awhile. Blah blah blah... I can't wait for Spamalot!
Almost everyday I laugh at something because it reminds me of Python or Python had something to do with it, but sadly, no one else would get it. No one I know knows anything Python but Holy Grail, sometimes Life of Brian or Meaning of Life, and very rarely Flying Circus. The only person I know who I can share my Python knowledge with is my dad, because he likes them, but not as much as me.

spinynrmn7 @ : For all Python Fans in or around NYC
(I hope someone hasn't already posted this but...) The Museum of Television and Radio will be presenting an Incomplete History of Monty Python from April till May. I know there's a MT&R in NYC and I believe there is one in LA but not sure about it. It's from the begining of April to the end of May! KICK ASS!

reader2002 @ : This place needs a bit of life! So how about a fun game?
A TRIVIAL QUEST! I mean TRIVIA game!!!!
Let's try. What we can do is say a character, or a quote, and the next person can guess who plays that character or says the quote. Then in the same message, they'd say a new character or quote and so on and so forth.
Example. I'd say something like..
Who plays the man who speaks only in anagrams?
And somebody would reply: "Eric Idle" then do their own like "Who says, 'Oh don't be so sentimental mother, things blow up every day?' and the answer would be John Cleese. And so on.
I'm a dork, yes. But I'm a Monty Python dork. So here's the question:
Who owned a fish named Eric, a dog named Eric, a cat named Eric... and so on and so forth?

ned____________ @ : ok devious, don't move
me new. me want to discuss python.
i have the honor and privilege to be the one and only italian monty python fan. at least around here.
nobody knows them in italy, except very few. some of those who have survived the 70s vaguely remember having seen a funny movie about knights and cocoanuts (very badly dubbed by the way). my father saw it too and became a fan (it must be hereditary). I remember him watching 'the meaning of life' when i was little.
'Monty Python's Life of Brian' was banned by the church *bloody church* when it came out and people could see it in teathers only in 1991 (!). The dubbing was a little better this time, at least.
'And now for something completely different' appeared on tape in the late 70s, and totally disappeared a few months later (the same happened with 'live at the hollywood bowl'). The holy grail (never re-dubbed of course, why taking the chance...) and the meaning of life (re-dubbed, and there was absolutely no need) are now out on dvd, but there's still no trace of the other two.
I can't show their movies to my friends, most don't understand english, so i have to watch them by myself. I'm alone in this.
*INTERMISSION: i've just bought the MP's Flying circus 14 DVD set. beautiful*
i don't know why this country had to mistreat the pythons so much. it's almost sadistic.
i'll subtitle the flying circus someday, and make it known at last.

reader2002 @ : I had a wonderful Christmas but I think the best thing that's happened in a while was on Sunday, when my aunt, cousin and I went to Costco and I finally bought the complete Monty Python's Flying Circus DVD set plus Monty Python Live for $99.00! Well, $104.99 with tax. But still :-D So I've been in Monty Python overdrive.
I've been wanting this for about a month now, and my cousin--five--asked what it was when we first saw it and I told her it was Monty Python. So she goes around now saying "Mikey Python! Mikey Python!" and now she's going "Burma" thanks to me, since Adriane and I always go Burma thanks to "How To Recognise Different Parts of the Body" ("Burma!" "Why did you say Burma?" "I panicked.").
And I've finally saw "Dennis Moore" again! I saw it once, about maybe two and a half years ago and I could never remember the name and I've been dying to see it again.
When my aunt and I were watching some last night, I kept going on about how genius the six are. I mean, to come up with something so... so... so... indescribable! Pure genius.
So anyway now I can learn even more obscure Monty Python lines, confuse cats *cough* I mean people even more now and dazzle those with my knowledge of the show!
Oh yes, for Christmas I got a pirate book and on the front is what Eric Idle had to say about it and as soon as I opened it, I said "Thank you." and mom started talking and I said, "SHHH! I'm trying to read what Eric Idle has to say about this book!" as if it were the most important thing in the world. When I talked to Adriane that night she said she got the same book and more or less the first thing after that was, "Did you see Eric Idle said stuff about it on the cover?!"
Mebbe I'm a little crazy. Maybe I need psychiatric help. Or maybe the Monty Python troup inserted a microchip in their shows that hypnotizes certain people into being obsessed over their show. I'm guessing it's the latter, it seems to most realistic. Wouldn't you agree?

icarus_ennobled @ : Hi. I'm new here. I'm in the US and I don't have cable so my british comedy experience is from Monty Python and back in the days when channel 13 used to play Red Dwarf on friday nights. But they haven't in a few years. I really miss Red Dwarf and AbFab. God, so much... Anyway, I just saw Shaun of the Dead; it was hilarious!!!! Oh god, I loved it. I watched it and then made my girlfriend and her bestfriend (who hate british comedy with all of their hearts and souls) go to see it with me 4 days later and they loved it too. I especially like the scene where Shaun and his bestfriend wee throwing the records at the zombies. Okay. I'm having a hankering for Monty Python and The Holy Grail. I'm going to go put it in the VCR. BTW: I was looking at the line up for PrideVision in Canada and they have AbFab and Red Dwarf, not to mention that they have a comparatively (compared to the US) uncencored gay channel in the first place. I am so jealous!!!!!!

reader2002 @ : It is time for the penguin on top of the televion to explode...
Okay so there's not penguin but there is a stuffed mole with a lab jacket!
I grew up watching MP and other Britcoms (My faves are Monty Python's Flying Circus, Are You Being Served?, Are You Being Served, Again?/Grace and Favour, Last of the Summer Wine, and Mr. Bean). I'm American but who cares?
I used to like John Cleese but now Eric Idle is numbah one on my MP Actor list (though all the others are totally awesome).
My favourite skit is... I dunno what its called exactly but I call it Self-Defense Against Those Bearing Fruit.
"Come at me." "No." "WHy not?" "You'll shoot me." "I will not!" "Put the gun away." "What gun?" "The gun you shot him with!" "Oh that gun. Okay, now... how to defend yourself against someone with a banana... without a gun." "You were going to shoot me!"
I did that all by memory. Anyway, I need to see "Life of Brian"...
Okay yes I ramble. But I ramble about that which I love and I love Monty Python!!
And now, away!

ironion @ : Hi. I'm new to this community, and a great, some would say diehard, fan of Monty Python. I was born in London, England, and lived there for the first three years of my life. During that time we lived next door to Terry Jones. And no I am not bullsh*tting. Unfortunately I was too young to remember him, but I have heard a lot of great anecdotes from my parents about him.
So yeah I love to talk about Monty Python, and quite a few other British Comedies, so I'll hopefully see y'all around.

yokie @ : Can you help me?
Hi Everyone! I'm new to this community but have loved Python for as long as I can remember :) I'm in a production of Godspell right now and I'm looking for a wmp-friendly version of the monk's march from MP: Holy Grail that we can use in it (we're trying to infuse as much multi-media as we can and that's one of the snippits we want). If anyone either has it and could send it to me (at firstname.lastname@example.org) or knows where I can find it online I would really appreciate it!!
