Time Trumpet


My husband found episodes of a British comedy sketch show called Time Trumpet on uknova.com, one of those charmingly illegal sites that put up a lot of British programing for us poor saps who can't get it on TV. The basic premise is that people of the future are being interviewed on the subject of the early 21st century (ie. our time period) and their responses are admirably performed with straight faced realism despite the outlandish things they're saying. It must be noted that the interviews also use spliced-together footage of actual events, with some fair amount of editing, tweaking, and outright overdubbing.

Above is a tiny clip of an advert for the show that let me know we'd found a winner... I've seen a few of the episodes posted on Youtube, so enjoy...

Heya teacherlady, I incidentally clicked on Sandmonkey, and voila, new post! Well, 2 weeks new, but it is there if you didn't know. Very touching, be sure to have some tissue at hand.

Funny you should say that, because I just went to his page yesterday and saw the "new" post too. Sorry to hear about his loss, but glad to know he's doing okay otherwise. Thanks for letting me know, though.
