SCTV Moment of Zen

Hear ye, hear ye! My humble blog will henceforth have a weekly feature, called the SCTV Moment of Zen.

SCTV is one of the best shows that ever aired; a good chunk of my favorite actor/comedians (Martin Short, Eugene Levy, Catherine O'Hara, Rick Moranis, John Candy) are alums of that show. I particularly adore Rick Moranis and Martin Short, who are just adorable and who I basically want to squeeze to death.

I am a quirky bitch with exquisite taste, so naturally I think that Strange Brew is one of the greatest movies ever made. I first watched it on HBO in my grandmother's rented beach house in Montauk, NY, one summer back in the mid-80s. It was not a good summer for your faithful writer. The parental units were going through a rough patch; tension in the house was rather thick. To further sweeten the deal, Yours Truly was in the full throes of puberty (i.e. miserable all day, every day). Besides the gorgeous beach and ocean, Strange Brew was the highlight of my trip; my dad and I spent the night on the couch laughing nonstop. I've seen that movie about 100 times since then, and I laugh harder every time. Beauty.

Doug McKenzie: I am your father, Luke. Give in to the dark side of the force, you knob.
Bob McKenzie: He saw Jedi 17 times, eh.

Those of you who are not familiar with the Mckenzie Brothers, who were created by Rick Moranis and Dave Thomas, need to rent all of the SCTV box sets, ASAP. You'll thank me later. Strange Brew is also pretty easy to find, and definitely worth a rental.

Till then, here is your SCTV moment of zen. Enjoy, hoseheads!

Thank you so much for the SCTV Moment of Zen. Just today Dave Thomas and his musician brother Ian (monster hit "Painted Ladies" in 1973) were interviewed on CBC Radio's "Sounds Like Canada. Here's a link to the interview:

Sorry it's RealPlayer only, that's how they roll at the CBC.

It's cold up here, so throw another troll on the fire!

"Great White North" was my favorite sketch on SCTV. Therefore it is not surprising to me that I agree with your assessment of Strange Brew.

Yes! I knew that my SCTV Moment of Zen would be a hit! My readers have such great taste.

Thanks for the interview, Brian.

reel fanatic, I think it's safe to say that Mike Meyers and Dana Carvey owe "Wayne's World" to Bob and Doug.

Linnaeus, I think I may rent Strange Brew again this week.
