This community seems pretty dead.

I should have posted this earlier, but I did finally get to interview Stella last March. There's an mp3 of it somewhere in here.

I can't take it anymore, I finally am done with the stella and state communities. So it's only spacestation11 for me from here on out. Just in case anyone cares.

I started transcibing my Stella interview from Sunday, but transcribing is hell so I stopped. And also it's better to hear them say it because the tones of their voices is about 50% of the humor. ("That was the tone of his voice." - Wesley Willis '95) And there was even one part where Showalter said something with a completely unstraight face, but the sound of his voice implies that he's being serious. So, mp3.. coming soon..

Okay, here's one part that sort of works with just reading, but it really is better hearing it.


Q: Think back to your mindset in 1992. How would those gentlemen feel watching Stella?

MIB: Well, we were basically...

MS: Wait, what was the question?

MIB: He's basically say how would you feel...

DW: Us at age 22 watching Stella.

MIB: We'd basically been doing- I think we'd be very pleased with it, because The State was sort of moving in this direction.

MS: You mean, what would The State have thought of Stella?

DW: Pre-The State, even before You Wrote It You Watch It.

MS: Would we have been fans of Stella?

Q: Yeah.

MS: As kids, you mean? [I was referring to during college and before MTV.]

DW: Maybe. It's hard to say. Stella is so completely unique and in its own brilliant [unintelligible].

MS: [quiet laugh]

Q: Well you're obviously different people than you were fifteen years ago.

MS: We're also not huge comedy fans, ironically. I mean we are interested in it, but it's not like, and I think I'm speaking for all three of us, we're not like die hard comedy fans.

MIB: And never were. David more than the rest of us.

MS: David a little more than Mike and I.

DW: Although I had never seen Python until during The State.

MS: But none of us are encyclopedias of comedic knowledge. I think it's possible that none of us would have really watched it.

MIB: Well Stella's a little hipper, so we wouldn't have known about it.

MS: I liked Kids In The Hall.

MIB: I never liked Kids In The Hall that much.

MS: I liked it, but I didn't tune in.

DW: The only thing I really watched was SC-TV and SNL. And I loved Woody Allen movies.

MS: I was into sitcoms. I really loved television sitcoms, like Happy Days, Mork And Mindy, Three's Company. We were all TV kids.

Q: You played Mork in that one sketch.

MS: I did indeed.

Q: That was a good one.

MS: Thank you.

MIB: I watched a lot of Brit-coms growing up.

Q: Brit-coms?

MIB: Yeah, I was very-

MS: The Lyverbirds?

MIB: The Lyverbirds, Upstairs Downstairs, 24 Penny Laine, The Nonsense Boys, Oil-Can Harry And His Mistress, What's In Your Parrot..

DW: Richard Racetrack.

MIB: All the great British sitcoms.

MS: Yeah, Upstairs Downstairs, I dont know if I'd call that a sitcom.

DW: I call it every night with my wife. That's what I'd call it.

MIB: I've never seen it so.. It's a soap opera, right?

MS: Yeah, I don't know.

MIB: But What's In Your Parrot was like, hugely important to me.

MS: What's In Your Parrot was very funny. Not British.

MIB: No, not British at all. Pakistani.

MS: But big in Britain.

MIB: Huge in Britain, and ironically, not that big in Pakistan.

DW: You know they say those shows during the daytime were "So pop era." Soap opera.

So anyway what I really wanted to ask was WHEN IS THE STATE DVD COMING OUT HUH!!??????

David Wain gets at least 20 of these in his inbox every day, which leads me to believe they made a little mistake announcing the DVD so early.

I'm fully aware that I'm an elitist prick when it comes to Stella and The State, but all these people now in lj are all like "I'm the fucking hugest Stella fan ever I know everything about them and I met Showalter once and he fucked me in the ass and I met Black once and he fucked me in the eye and I met Wain once and he burned my house down," and I have to just sit there and take it because I've never met any of them, except for some emails I've gotten from a few members, but face-to-face conversations is what matters the most, isn't it? Seriously, I feel like I'm owed a debt for some reason - by the fans, not-so-much by The State members. Because I loved them to death and supported them when far less people did, and I feel like it was because of the fans who supported them during those dark years that now even exists - the dark years, AKA 1998-2000, remember when the Stella clips were on ComedyNet, and not as many people knew about them, and it was an amazing occurance to actually get to randomly see Michael Ian Black on VH1's "The List" after none of them had been on TV in like 3 fucking years. I supposed if I had made an effort to try and meet them back then, I might have had better luck.

Shit, I'm late. Bye.

i hate...
i hate the icons that have recently been posted on the_state. mostly that they're all stretched out. but also that they have no sense of timing whatsoever. fuck.

i hate how everyone is responding all positively about the icons despite the obvious fact that they suck. but it's really not surprising given the lame nature of the typical member of that community. shit.

i hate how everyone on the lj state-related communities suck, and how it makes me think that all state fans suck. which they don't, i hope. piiiiiiissssssssss.

Fun Fact: 175 lj users have Micheal Ian Black listed as an interest, an astoundingly high number considering every one of these people spelled his name wrong.

i swear to gald
Since they just broadcast half of their on stage material on Comedy Central, I'm getting the impression that Stella will be writing some new stand-up schtick pretty soon. In celebration, at some point in the near future, I'm going to attempt to transcribe all of the audiotape from the December 2002 show, because I miss a lot of those old jokes n stuff.

A message from teenangst.com mentions the following...

"We stopped selling the STELLA dvd because we were sick of 13 year old boys
sending us dildos in the mail asking STELLA to autograph them."

I want everyone to die.

Yeah, so I know this community hasn't gotten huge yet, but I'm promising big things. Okay, I'm not promising big things, but I'm promising that I'm hoping for big things.

And I can't watch the new shorts yet because I don't have a computer. I'm at the library right now.

Okay, the next order of business: Does anyone have suggestions on how to locate other State fanatics for this community?

I was thinking of making spacestation11 a closed community, and posting something on the_state about it, and then maybe having some kind of questionaire for people who want to be included in spacestation11, to see if they actually are worthy, which does sound lame and elitist, but it's the only way to avoid the annoying people. I'm assuming that there have to be at least a few other people in the_state who are as upset in its direction as we are.

Any other suggestions that are not as lame?
